How is Kung Fu Power Different that Karate Power?

Comparing the Power of Karate to the Power of Kung Fu

The instructors in Karate and Kung Fu
don’t tell you what I am about to tell you.
The reason is simple,
they don’t know,
or if they do know,
they don’t really understand.
Which is to say they surround it in mystical terms.
With Matrixing,
of course,
there are no mystical terms.
There is only the real science of the martial arts.

So,
power in karate comes from:
sinking the weight
thrusting the weight
turning the hips

This is simple stuff,
most instructors might know one or two of these things,
never all three…
AND THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE THEM TO CREATE THE FOURTH POWER!
chi.

But this is covered in depth in The Master Instructor’s course.
For here and now,
let it suffice to say
that every move should have these three items,
and in the proper mix.

Now,
power in Kung Fu is similar:
dropping the weight
thrusting the weight
turning the whole body

It’s funny,
the two arts have the same principles
but they are different in a super major aspect.
That aspect is turning the hips (karate)
versus turning the whole body (Kung Fu)

Karate tends to turn the hips in a tight area.
putting the body weight into the strike very efficiently.

Kung Fu turns the whole body,
which includes the hips,
in a larger area.

Now,
don’t get me wrong,
there are going to be some arts
some techniques,
which overlap in this analysis.
And there is a simplicity here
which might be misleading.

But if you look at Shaolin on youtube,
and I use Shaolin as the example because it is considered
(by many)
to be the grandfather of the martial arts,
you will often find the body spinning in a large circle.
Sometimes it will end in a stance with an explosion,
but the power was generated by spinning the whole body,
then condensing the power manufactured in the spin
and sticking it into the technique.

I have come across descriptions of Shaolin
which talk about the axis of the body
(the centerline of north and south pole,
or crown and anus)
spinning,
and the rest of the body being a ‘flag.’
And this then gets real mystical.
I recommend Tai Chi Touchstones,
if you are interested in deciphering this.
Touchstones is not totally scientific,
but being translated by a westerner
(Douglas Wile)
it is couched in terms that can be taken as scientific.

Anyway,
we are talking two different methods here,
but based on the same principles,
with one of the principles expanded.
Which one is right?

They are both right.
You just have to know how to develop each method of power,
and then know when to use them.

So,
I usually just say
go check out the Master Instructor course.
But let me give you the two arts discussed here.
The whole arts on the courses,
forms, techniques, theory, everything.
You can easily develop the two types of power.

they are easy to understand,
because they aren’t written mystically,
but rather scientifically.
Matrixing, ya know.

You, too, Can Become a Legend of Kung Fu!

SECRETS OF KUNG FU STRENGTH DISCOVERED!

I am not referring to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, or any of the other martial art cinema stars when I refer to legends of kung fu. I am talking about those mystical feats that all people are in awe of, and wish they could do.

karate style brown belt learnOne of the first legends I ever came across was a fellow who could jump 6 to 10 feet high. He could stand on the street and jump to rooftop. The way to learn how to do this was to dig a hole 1 foot deep and practice jumping out of it for an hour every day, after a month you add a few inches, another month a few more inches, after a few years you’re down to 6 feet, 7 feet, 10 feet, And then you can jump right to the roof of the house. Whoa!

Another legend of kung fu I came across, more dangerous, was a fellow who would stab himself first with a pen and a bigger pan finally a small knife and a bigger night, And eventually he would be able to take withstand the strike of swords. Whoa!

My favorite of these legends, is actually more of an American legend. It was born out of people’s desire to have great strength. What you do is you lift a new born calf on your shoulders. And the next day you lift it again. And the next and the next. And by time a year is past you are able to lift a 1000 pounds. Whoa!

Now I love these legends, but let’s face it if they were that easy everybody would be doing them. So really, These are the comic book variations of internet scams.

The only real way to do kung fu is to get yourself a good martial arts course and do it. No tricks no gimmicks, just good hard work, and a belief in yourself that you can accomplish great things in your life.

Probably the best kung fu course out there, is the Shaolin butterfly. It is based on fut ga Shaolin hung fu, but it uses Western logic to make the study faster and more efficient.

Behind the Shaolin Butterfly Gung Fu System

A Better Way of Doing Shaolin Gung Fu

I was getting nowhere studying Kung Fu.

I had twenty plus years of Karate, knew aikido and a bit of Wing Chuna nd Northern Shaolin, but I wanted the temple stuff!

sanchin kata pan gai noonI wanted the things you saw in those great Shaw Brothers movies!

I wanted unique training methods wherein Kung Fu would burst over me and I would suddenly know the secrets of the universe!

One day this fellow walks in, gives his name as Richard, and wants to take Karate.

But I knew he knew something. His attitude, the calm in his eyes…he knew something.

So we talked, and it turned out he knew Tai Chi and Pa Kua, and…Shaolin.

Real Shaolin. Fut Ga Shaolin, which is ‘Five Monks,’ and is so named after the five monks who escaped the burning of the Shaolin temple hundreds of years before.

Now, why did he want to study Karate?

Well, actually, he didn’t. I mean, a little, but what he really wanted was a place to work out.

So we ended up trading systems.

I taught him Karate, and he taught me Shaolin.

Form by form, we went through, and the ancient mysteries, well, they didn’t burst over me, they sort of dribbled.

Don’t get me wrong, it was cool, it was exciting, but, it was also not very logical.

Same as any martial art these days, and more than most (it had had a long time to get messed up), the whole thing was made up of random sequences of motion.

Not everything worked.

Took a long time to learn.

I was in heaven, of course, dribble or burst. But I kept looking for the key to the whole thing.

And there, in one of the forms, was a sequence of steps, and suddenly the dribble did burst.

Man, I took that footwork and began matrixing it. Worked it from every angle, and plugged in Shaolin concepts one after the other.

That opened the door, broke the dam, put fireworks in the sky.

I remember spending hours and hours, late at night, working out in the middle of the street. Didn’t have a dojo in the house, so I just went out in the street, stepped out of the way of the occasional car, and worked my way through Shaolin.

Now it made sense!

Now it was EASY to learn.

And I didn’t give up any of the ancient stuff. Same moves are still there, same techniques, but everything is rearranged so that it makes sense, so that the chi still comes from the moves, but the moves come slick and easy and logical, arranged in perfect order.

I renamed what I was doing The Shaolin Butterfly. The footwork, you see, looked like the wings of a butterfly.

And that is how one of the oldest and most respected forms of gung fu, Fut Ga (Five Monks), became upgraded, empowered, and matrixed.

Shaolin Butterfly Promotion

New Expertin Shaolin Gung Fu

congratulations to Master Instructor Kurt Nelle’
for finishing the Shaolin Butterfly Course.
Here is his win…

Shaolin Butterfly Gung Fu

…Once I was able to start practicing the program physically with a training partner… Things really started to click. I would train the program at my gym, then head home and review the material again. During this process, I would recognize things from all your  other programs that I had previously studied and all of a sudden everything became very clear to me. Matrixing other systems I have learned in the past became quick and simple! I found that I was only applying Matrixing to the systems that I had received from you (mental laziness on my part). As a test, I applied matrixing to the  Chun System that I have been practicing for 20 years and found that I was able to finally make sense to one of my students whom was having some coordination issues. I found that just teaching the system in the Matrix format wasn’t enough, but once I taught the student the actual Matrix system as taught in your Matrix Karate program, the student was actually able to teach herself Wing Chun using the techniques I taught her, and her new knowledge of the matrix chart and process. This truly was a Win!

I have spent almost a year on the Shaolin Butterfly Program albeit somewhat on and off, and feel I have benefited most from this program. Possibly because I spent so much time on it, but it definitely brought it all together for me!

At the end of all print material included with your courses, you request an email describing any wins that may occur during the learning of the program. Well this is one I wish I could have sent sooner but better late then never. I use quite a bit of this program, if not all, with my regular student as well as in some seminars I have done. I just hope I am doing it justice but people I teach really do seam to enjoy it. It fills the need many people have for a traditional martial art while providing sound useable defense.

Respectfully, Kurt A. Nelle’

Thank you Kurt,
you really make my day,
and for several important reasons
that really need to be mentioned.

First,
people miss the fact
that I offer promotions at the end of many of my courses.
The conditions are simple.
Do the Master Instructor Course,
and do the course you wish to be tested in,
and send a video in.
If that isn’t easy enough,
I don’t charge for video testing
(first two videos)
and have even been known to waive the condition
if the person has experience,
is running a school
or otherwise actively teaching,
and so on.

I want people to get better at the martial arts.
Do you understand?
I want to help people get better.
That is the sole motivation
behind Monster Martial Arts.

Second,
there is honest revelation in Kurt’s win.
He has obviously understood matrixing on a larger level.
Some people,
a large number,
understand Matrixing right from the get go.
They charge right in,
go through the courses,
and they are pulled along.
The logic of matrixing pulls them.

Some people don’t get it,
a very few,
and that is fine.
They either have other things they should be doing,
or there is something going on with their mind
that they refuse the logic.
They don’t understand that Matrixing
would fix that part of their mind,
and they don’t trust the courses,
or some other mental quirk,
and they quit,
and that really is too bad.

The thing is
if you don’t get matrixing right from the get go,
take an honest look at yourself,
you ARE getting better.
Your understanding of the martial arts,
the way you move your body
the way you do forms and techniques
HAS improved.

So keep going.

You WILL have realization as you proceed.
If you do the work,
and don’t quit,
your realization is pretty much guaranteed.

You simply can’t have such an influx of pure data
and NOT have a realization.

And the realization is as Kurt outlines above.
It may take different form,
people are different,
and it may even look different.
But,
if you carefully exam the Master Instructor wins,
or the unique wins after somebody does a course,
there is a manifestation of understanding
that cannot be denied.

Third,
your realization will be stronger,
will mean more,
if you are teaching.
Look,
Kurt had a student that wasn’t getting it,
until he matrixed the student,
and now the student is matrixing.

It’s just that powerful.

It’s not just the system…
it is the matrixing that puts logic into the mind.
The logic of matrixing is the software,
once the software is plugged into the mind,
the mind matrixes.
It is that simple.

but,
as Kurt indicates,
it takes work.

The first person who did the Shaolin Butterfly over the net
Stephen D
a while back,
worked at it for years.
I didn’t know him,
he didn’t even have a video,
just the original book
before I put the whole course together.
He didn’t quit.
That is the secret.
Don’t just do the forms
and move on,
do the forms day after day,
that’s when things happen.

The second person who did Shaolin Butterfly over the net,
Justin H.
He worked that system over,
worked it with the Butterfly Pa Kua,
and he did it day after day.
Do you understand?

Yes,
I promise fast results,
but don’t think I am not preaching hard work over time.

Really,
you have to get excited,
and become convinced,
and really DO the martial arts.

Not just dabble.

And,
in speaking with Kurt,
he said something else.

I did enjoy all the forms but found the six step forms useful for teaching others. The two man practice gave me great ideas for doing two person Pakua practice. As a matter of fact, the Shaolin Butterfly program gave me much better insight of the Butterfly Pakua program. I also feel that it was the amount of time I spent on the program that made the difference.

Do you understand?
The Shaolin Butterfly is built
to plug into the Butterfly Pa Kua Chang.

He says ‘more ideas,’
his awareness is growing,
and fast!
And,
he says it right here,
‘the amount of time!’

So,
I don’t know what else I can say.
I offer not just complete martial arts systems,
but the method for understanding them FAST,
but,
don’t just do them,
take the time,
do them day after day,
invest yourself in them,
guaranteed,
they will invest in you.

Okay
You can take a horse to water,
but in this case,
you can can take a martial artist to the door of understanding,
but you can’t make him go through it.
That is up to him (her).

That is up to you.

Get the idea?

Here’s the link…

And thanks again,
Master Instructor Kurt Nelle’,
expert in the Shaolin Butterfly.
You really made my day.

Learn Zombie Kung Fu or Get Your Face Eaten Off!

The ultimate argument for learning Zombie Kung Fu occurred in Miami when a naked fellow by the name of Rudy Eugene ate a homeless man’s face. Rudy, it appears, ingested a drug called ‘bath salts.’ This street concoction fried his brain, and he decided to go McDonalds on the face of Ronald Poppo.

martial arts work out

Do this to a Zombie’s face!

Ronald, unfortunately, didn’t know Zombie Kung Fu.

What is the self defense move for somebody trying to eat your face off?

Head butt? Eat back?

The fact is that drugs do make zombies; drugs kill brains, and the unbrained ones then do whatever they wish, which, in this case, involved making a happy meal out of some poor schmucks nose and cheeks and stuff.

It is estimated that more than 80% of America is on drugs. This includes prescription drugs, street drugs, but not alcohol, coffee, or the like.

The word drug comes from a french word, drogue, which refers to barrels used to hold medicinal herbs.

The purpose (one of the purposes) of drugs is to cause unawareness so that medical attention can be given.

Modern times drugs are referred to as dope, and the prime purpose is to give joy through stupidity.

Kung Fu, on the other hand, or any good martial art such as taekwondo, krav maga, jujitsu,a nd so on, imparts awareness. People actually get smarter. Their bodies tedox, their brains wake up, and they start actually thinking, and can even attain enlightenment, which is the highest expression of the thought process in a human being.

That one does become smarter is proven by the fact that people who study Kung Fu don’t eat other peoples faces off.

Thus, studying an art like Hung Gar or Preying Mantis or wing Chun will not only make a person smarter, better able to handle the world, and so on, it will give him recourse in the event that a zombie tries to eat his face.

While the self defense techniques for specific zombie attacks have not been categorized or explored in any detail, it is obvious that an aware person will have enough presence of mind to kick an unaware person in the nuts using zombie Kung Fu.

Dr. Feelgood’s Traveling Snake Oil Kung Fu Lessons

Now it could be Taekwondo Lessons, or Karate Instruction, or online Kenpo classes, or any number of odd beasts, but it is all the same. It could be the inside cover comic book ads or late night infomercials, but you know what I am talking about. You can have the power to destroy eight tat covered gangbangers with a single never before revealed secret technique!

Now, the weird thing is, some of these things you see on the web actually have worth. Some of them are the product of dedicated martial arts senseis. The sad truth, however, it is still a ‘buyer beware’ game out there.

The plot line for these magic courses is pretty predictable. First build some common feeling with the reader. Since everybody grew up and has been picked on, telling the crowd that you used to be picked on by bullies is a pretty good tale.

Now, you’ve put the idea of being picked on in the rube’s head, the second step is to give him a solution. You’ve got to convince him that if he studies your method he will be capable of beating up the bullies. This magic formula, if you think about it, is at the heart of every kung fu movie ever made.

Now, except for the taking his money part, you’ve basically got it figured out. It is all that simple. Sell him a problem, give him the solution, take his money. Or, if you want to get egghead, suspend his belief, lead him to a fantasy, take his money.

Now, let’s be honest, some products actually have some great worth, and some should be avoided like smelly, day old toilet seat covers, and the way to figure out the difference is easy. If the pitch follows a certain predictable line, you might want to avoid it. A guy who follows an exact script has done his homework, and he is trying to build his bankroll on your back.

The better alternative is the guy who doesn’t follow a script, but who actually talks to you. It is not a selling format, but a voice that has substance and belief. It is a guy who believes in what he is practicing, and is selling out of compassion and love for what he does.

This is not to say that there isn’t sometimes some great deals in some of the Snake Oil Kung Fu Lessons, or Karate Instruction, or Kenpo Online. Be it prison fighting or ghetto blasting, or secret CIA techniques taught in secret by an ancient vodun priest…there could very well be some juicy stuff, or even a new way of viewing things. Sometimes, you know, Snake Oil is what you need!
