Monster Newsletter #303–The Fence of My Skin and the True Spiritual You!

Hey! Hey! Good morning!
It’s drizzly and misty here in LA,
and that leads to the obvious conclusion…
the sun won’t come out
until I work out.

It’s true.
I control the sun,
and the moon and the stars
merely by the strength of my work out.

Don’t believe it?
Take my attitude
and clean up your own weather.
You’ll find out.

Let me tell you something loopy about this,
and then offer an example of proof
about this work out thing.

Consider your body,
your skin is the fence.
Your awareness sits inside the fence,
And your eyes and ears are like searchlights
watching beyond the fence.

the real key is awareness.

You watch outside the fence of your skin
to feed your awareness.
Do you know how little awareness you are using?

one day you take up martial arts
and you realize that there is more to this awareness thing.
So you work out,
run some energy around the area
inside the fence,
through the arms and legs,
around the organs, and so on.
You punch and kick and throw,
and energy moves around inside your fence
more efficiently
the odd thing,
you become more aware.
Pushing that energy,
you watch the energy,
and you become more aware.
Anybody who has done martial arts
knows this is true.

And you reach the point where
you start to realize
that there is more than
eyes and ears and blood and bone.

There is this awareness coursing through your body,
and you start to ‘sense’ things,
which means you are aware of things
without using the eyes and ears.

you work out long enough
you suddenly are aware of something outside the fence,
beyond your skin,
without using the ears and eyes.
you are breaking the fence of your skin,
opening the doors of perception
realizing that there is more to life
than just a body.
There is you.
And you are awareness.
The big ’I am.’

one day I was working,
I haven’t spoken of this for probably a hundred or so newsletters,
so most of you haven’t heard it,
but I was working,
big door factory,
and during the lunch hour
one of the guys asked me about the martial arts.
So we went into the back room.
The light was very dim,
there was a lot of noise,
and we had to really concentrate on each other
to hear and be heard.

I was showing him suburito,
which is a basic sword strike exercise
from Aikido.
And I was showing him how to hold the sword upright,
preparatory to the strike,
and suddenly,
this huge force,
like the hand of a 100 foot giant
grabbed my body
and made the sword slash downwards behind me.
I was virtually helpless,
couldn’t stop the force,
but I had just enough awareness
to know that I had to do something,
and I pushed,
with every single ounce of my fiber,
to make the sword leave its path.
I pushed,
and it felt like I was lifting a thousand pounds.
My very bones made cracking noises.
The ‘sword’ did leaves its path
made a slight little blip
in an otherwise perfect
downward arc.

There was a guy behind me,
name of Eddie,
who had seen us working out
and decided to jump me.
He was only going to grab me,
but he was one of these fellows
with a little extra bit of nasty in his soul.

The sword
it was a actually a piece of track
used for closet doors,
cut down and slashed open his chest.
It was a mean,
nasty cut,
blood all over the place.
He staggers back
against a stack of pallets,
and he’s messed up.

So we got the first aid going,
he was going to have to go to the hospital
and get his chest sewed back together,
here’s the odd thing,
he wasn’t mad at me.
He was too messed up to be mad,
he was looking at his own mortal blood,
he was beyond anger and into surviving.
And I took advantage of the moment
and asked him what he had been doing.

He told me he was going to get me,
grab me for a joke,
have some fun with me.
Picking up on his words,
and some of the underlying meanings,
I asked him what he had been thinking
right before I cut him open.
I remember his exact words.
He looked up at me,
one hand clamped over the wound,
blood seeping through the fingers,
and he said,
“It’s funny,
I was right behind you,
just starting to jump,
and I thought,
‘Aha, got him!’
Then you cut me!”

the skin is a fence,
and there is a world outside the fence
that the martial arts illuminate,
and it doesn’t always use the eyes and the ears,
and it builds up the senses
of more than the eyes and ears.
it can take a lifetime,
if you matrix your martial art
then it becomes efficient
and you get those abilities a lot faster.
Get me,
it’s not matrixing that gives you the abilities,
it is your art that gives you those abilities,
matrixing just makes the process faster,
more efficient,
gets you there faster.
Without matrixing you go slow,
maybe don’t even get there.
With matrixing,
zingo bingo,
you’re there.

one last thing,
you remember how I said
I felt a huge force controlling my body?
Pulling my sword?
That was the real me,
and there is a similar force controlling you,
the real you.
Your body is a mere sliver of the real you.
Martial arts,
good martial arts,
especially if matrixed,
makes you aware of the real you.
The monstrous, huge, gigantic essence
that is the spiritual you
that controls that little thing
you call a body.

And when I pushed against my true spiritual force,
made the sword change its arc ever so slightly,
I saved Eddie’s face.
The cut would have gone right through his right temple,
taken out the eye,
and laid his skin to the bone.
Would have cut through the actual bone.

I had enough martial arts
that the true me could act,
because of the martial arts
I had enough presence of mind
to effect the true me,
and save somebody’s life.

I don’t know how good a guy I am,
I make a lot of mistakes,
I don’t always say or do the right thing,
no matter how hard I try.
But I’ve got a method that makes sense,
and it works,
and it works for everybody
and is even logical.
But it is going to take some sweat,
it’s going to take some work,
and it’s going to take a dedication of work outs,
even fully matrixed work outs,
but it is there,
and the proof is in you.
Can you work out hard enough,
efficiently enough
to bring out the truth of you?

I think so.
Here’s the link to help.

If you don’t feel like Karate,
look around for the art
that is closest to what you really want,
what will really help you find
the true spiritual giant
that you are.

Have a great work out.

The Degrees Of Emptiness In Tai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi Chuan is the art that espouses emptiness. One must move without force to realize true Tai Chi. And, in Tai Chi, you never run out of emptiness.

One must realize, of course, that there are degrees of emptiness. The beginning student will have one idea concerning this concept, and the advanced master will have another, and there is plenty of room in between. Indeed, one could almost say there is a different viewpoint of this great nothingness as there is students to perceive it.

In the beginning there is much confusion. The beginning student tries to get in the way, has realizations of the mechanistic nature of the universe, and works his way through confusion. Eventually, the beginner starts to realize that there is more to this idea of space than he at first thought.

There is space inside the body. The apparent concreteness of muscle and bone gives way to perception. Awareness can float unhindered through the contrivances of the seemingly real body.

This reflects in practice. The beginning student becomes advanced as he loses reaction time and begins to move in concert with the incoming attack. It is a short journey, once started, until the student joins his body to that of the attackers, and is able to draw upon the energies of two bodies in harmony, as opposed to just one in conflict.

Eventually the space of the body gives way to the realization that there is a great space. Indeed, the body stops being a dividing line between the student and the universe. The student becomes master, and his perceptions are not stopped at the threshold of space, but rather are unlimited and as far as he can perceive.

The new master touches arms with beginner, and he speaks of great space, and he gives way that the beginner may fall into a new arena of perception, an entire and new and glorious perception of the universe. Slowly, the new student accepts the journey of the master, accepts gravity only to refuse it in his thoughts, and the circle continues. The fresh sprout grows, becomes tree, seeks the heavens, undergoing cycles of existence that enliven the mind throughout time.

This is the journey of Tai Chi Chuan, endless, immutable, hastened only by the striving towards knowledge of the student. This is the tai chi of a race, of a humanity, and it is a goal and a method and a principle that should be sought by all. What would happen if all governments gave way to the kindness of the people?

Monster Newsletter #299–Under the Surface!

Good, good, good
A work out a day
keeps the insanity away.
And that’s the truth.
Thanks for being sane.

You know,
sanity is merely a halfway point.
The human race evolves in the following manner,

Insanity is the jungle like struggle for survival.
Dog eat dog,
We all go through it,
at some point.
you either die,
hang yourself,
jump off a building,
or you go sane.

getting along,
turns into the same old same old.
It’s true.

I mean,
after you go sane,
what do you do?
How do you get that extra ability?
Do you keep struggling?
But against what?
For what?

people have been seeking their true abilities all along,
the martial arts have provided
these extra abilities
that are our true nature,
our real birthright.

The problem has been
everybody has a different viewpoint.
Aikido says universal love,
Jujitsu says ground and pound,
Tai Chi says inner calmness,
and so on.

Of course,
I believe
why not have them all?
Why not have all the abilities of all the arts?
I mean,
with matrixing…
you can!

interestingly enough,
I’m not going to push matrixing on you.
I’ve been doing that all along,
you know what’s going on,
so let me kick it into high gear,
break out of the same old same old,
and tell you something new.

Let me tell you something neutronic.

The way to achieve higher ability
in any and all arts
is to do all the arts.
it’s not just doing them,
it’s how you do them.
To tell you how to do them,
let me point something out.

Google something.
Doesn’t matter what
and you have just accessed the surface thoughts of humanity.
the study of bugs,
you have just skimmed
the surface knowledge of mankind.
You have looked across the things of the universe,
you know about the measurements of the universe,
and the abstract thoughts concerning,
do you get it?
But you only know…about.
You don’t know.

to know,
as opposed to know about,
you have to actually do,
you have to make the knowledge your own,
by experiencing it.

This is like saying,
you have swum across the surface.
So how do you take a breath
and dive beneath the surface?

diving beneath the surface
is something we  have been doing
through the martial arts
all along.
Through the martial arts
we have been measuring our souls
by the depth of our experience.
We have been delving into ourselves.
Finding ourselves,
the truth of ourselves,
and it starts with the form of you
and digs into the worth of you.

The problem has been
we fight each other
over whose experience best illustrates the depths.

Who’s art is best?

They are all the best,
because they do reflect
Our depths.
The real who of us.
The ‘I am.’
Who we are
and why we are.

organizes the data,
and lays it out
so we can understand
exactly where we are
who we are
why we are.

here is the point of it all
here is how you get those extra abilities
from each art
and every art,
here is the exact thing you must do
when you do the martial arts
if you are going to
dive beneath the surface
and find yourself.

Do your form without surface thought.
Do not have sentences occurring
while you are working out.
Do not have thoughts and considerations.
Do only what you are doing
and exclude all else.

When you get rid of the surface thoughts
when you crack through the shell of the surface thoughts
you will find great space.

What you perceive,
the universe,
it is all nothing more than
great space.
And there is where you are going to find your abilities.

something to understand.
People have been doing this forever,
but they do it apart,
and they don’t upload the data
for the whole race
except through arcane script.
Esoteric mumblings.
Secret scrolls
that get destroyed
by those who didn’t make it
and don’t want anybody
to make it.
Their credo is
‘No enlightenment for man!’
And it is a mean credo,
an enslaving credo,
and should be held up to light
so that it will stop being effective.

with matrixing
you organize the data,
and you understand that anybody can do it
and everybody should do it
and that the extra abilities available to mankind
can be had.

You just have to work.
But now you know the direction
your work must take,
you know how simple it is,
and how difficult.

To put side the world
and be only you
you must have
purpose with no surface thought.

No you know why people meditate before class,
so they can dedicate themselves to
getting rid of surface thought.

Now you know why people meditate.

the martial arts
as a discipline which actually handles
the force and flow of the universe
works so much better.

But you have to do more than google the surface thoughts.
You have do the art.
Not talk,
not surf the net,
but take an hour or two a day
and dedicate it to the martial arts,
to you,
to finding out who you are.

some people believe in prayer,
nothing wrong with that,
as a martial artist,
your form is your prayer.
Not your reaction time,
because that is something you are trying to lose.
Not the ability to beat people up,
because you are trying to give that up.
the belief in yourself,
that under the howdie do exterior
under the work a day world
and the clothes and the cars,
under the day to day
how are you doing communications
in which you pass by your fellow man,
there is a great space,
a you,
a depth of perception people have only dreamt of.

So do your forms,
dedicate yourself to not having thought,
but rather seeking a goal,
and achieving a goal
through the purity of the fist,
the kick,
the throw,
the now.

Okey doke,
This has been a set up,
I’m going to tell you the truth about reading minds
in issue 300.
Until then,
practice your forms…
do your moves,
hone your techniques,
and stop thinking.

Monster Newsletter #298–A New Master Instructor!

When it rains it pours!
Another new Master Instructor,
talk about making my day!
So here are the words of the latest…

Dear Al,
I have purchased your courses on Matrix Karate, Butterfly Pa Kua Chang, Matrix Tai Chi Chuan, The Master Books, The Punch and the Master Instructor Course. I do not know why I waited so long to purchase the Master instructor course because it should have been the second course I purchased. Either way I have learned from each course. I am surprised at how much information and detail I have been able to absorb. I now can look at Pa kua forms for example and without being shown any application can already see the applications. My brain starts to process applications faster than I can say them.
Studying your Master Instructor coarse has taught me so much that I almost do not know where to begin. It has helped me to realize any shortcomings in my teaching methods. The coarse has given me a greater appreciation for my instructors and Masters. There were things in the Master Instructor course that I remember having been taught. As a result there are specific instructors I feel compelled to go back to and just say thank you!
Being taught by many different instructors has allowed me to first hand learn the importance of showing proper application of technique to a student. There were times I would learn a form but not know how to apply it. Another instructor would show application and I would look at the movements in the form with a newfound understanding and appreciation. They now had purpose. I like that your forms have application upon application. There is nothing mystical, just pure science.
The four powers were enlightening to me. After I purchased your book on The Punch I began to explore the powers. Seeing it in the Master Instructor coarse made me examine how the four powers work in all my techniques.
Looking at my Tan Tui forms I now understand and recognize them clearly.  I can now honestly say that I can take any move from my forms and apply it directly to my sparring. I’ve used techniques as simple as springing Leg form 2 to move guys across the floor. I was the guy you spoke about who would CBM by accident. I had a lot of lucky accidents. Now there is no accident. I have been able to move guys twice my size with ease.
The six (secrets) are amazing concepts and ways to analyze my techniques. Chin Na Fa techniques and any joint locking techniques are now easier to breakdown. There is so much technique to analyze that I can give myself a headache. Yet I cannot think of anything else worth getting a headache over. Thank You Al for your knowledge and experience!
Luis Bonnet

You’re welcome, Luis,
and I thank you.

there are a couple of points here
that we should take note of.

One, applications as the key to understanding the art.
We can understand this from several viewpoints,
and Luis has summed them up beautifully.

After the Master Instructor Course
you should be able to make a technique out of anything.

the speed of absorbing the information.
Matrixing is not a system,
it is a method for absorbing systems.
Done properly,
and it is hard not to do properly,
you don’t learn with it,
it enables you to absorb,
which is not just an advanced method of learning,
but the way human beings are supposed to input knowledge.

children are taught to read
a time.
And hardly anybody
actually considers
how a grown up should learn.
that’s where matrixing comes in.

and I think this is incredibly important,
Luis has increased respect
for his instructors.

You know,
I get hate mail every once in a while.
It’s always from people
who have never taken a course,
and have judged me without knowing what I am doing,
and they miss the point…
I love and am in awe
of the instructors,
the masters,
the guys who started systems
who went before…
they were giants.
They ignored the gaps of knowledge in their own minds,
created their masterpieces,
and passed on the data.
Do you know how much strength of character it takes
to do something like this?

So they should be respected.

people often overlook one other thing,
I am not out to destroy the art,
I merely want to enhance the arts.
Make them not a mystery,
make them so anybody can achieve
the incredible abilities
the martial arts have to offer.

compared to Joe Normal,
you are stronger and longer lasting,
you have patience and an ability to see
to the heart of things.
When bullies arise,
so do you.

Wouldn’t you want
everybody in the world
to be like you?

You should.

get the rest of the world to do the martial arts.
Confidence and competence
leads away from fighting.
Being calm and patient
makes human beings.

The concepts of the martial arts
leads one to solutions in real life.
Wouldn’t you like people to solve problems
and stop the whining and fighting?

I could go for hours on this,
I need do only one thing,
get somebody out there
to do the Master Instructor Course.
One person.
One more idea in the world
that people are good
and we deserve better
and we CAN get along.

One person.
Which one of you is going to step up to the plate?
Which one of you has read the Master Instructor Wins
and wants some of those wins for yourself?
Which one of you wants the abilities,
like being able to make an application out of anything,
the ability to absorb whole fields of knowledge,
the gratitude for those who have gone before,
the ability to take students
and even entire arts,
and transform them
into something the planet needs,
that mankind needs?

Which one of you?

The MasterInstructor Course

Master Instructor Luis Bonnet,
and thank you for showing the way.

Internal Karate, Matrixing, And The Strongest Punch!

Using methods developed through Matrix Karate, it is possible to build Internal energy literally within days. The actual physics of the matter, the exact science, is very easy to describe. Of course, there are a couple of items that the budding student should note.

I’m going to start with the cautions for the simple reason that I don’t wish for my methods to cause injury to anybody. I found that it was very easy for over exuberant students to throw the shoulder out of socket when throwing punches. This destruction of the rotator cuff and associated elements can be avoided through utilization of classical form.

When somebody throws a punch and lets the arm bang against the confines of proper shoulder construction the tendons and ligaments finally give way. If you practice holding the shoulder back, however, as in classical karate, the structure remains intact and is not damaged. I recommend that you search for classical movements which do not hurt the body, but which utilize the whole body (turning the whole body into the motion).

Also, I discovered that as the power builds it is possible to give oneself whiplash. This is the result of throwing energy through the body and the neck not being able to support the sudden increased magnitude and flow of that energy. I advocate that people learn to minimize their effort, and this through the study of energy and relaxation as practiced by some internal styles such as Tai Chi Chuan.

There are other cautions I could give you, specifically to be careful not to grind the knees by pivoting on weighted feet, throwing the hips out when kicking, and that sort of thing. The cautions I have given you here, however, and the previous sentence, should enlighten you as to how to avoid such problems. Thus, let’s move into internal energy.

Take a pipe about 18 inches long, put a golf ball in it, and cap the ends. Tape the pipe to your arm, and perform strikes in such a way that the golf ball strikes the end cap at the same moment you end your strike. I know it sounds awkward, but soon you will learn how to move the golf ball smoothly through the pipe.

This is what internal energy feels like, and you can take this concept and apply it to blocks and kicks, and the entire motion of your whole body. Now get rid of the pipe and ball and practice getting the feeling of moving weight through your arm so that you feel energy wooshing through the arm and collecting, suddenly and with focus, in your fist. Heck, now that you know the ‘energetical’ physics of what is going on, you don’t even need that silly pipe and ball tool.

Pipe and ball or not, you are going to learn subtle motions that will help you increase your energy, and, if you are smart, you will learn the benefit of classical studies. The classics of karate, Kung Fu, or other arts, have been developed to give this type of power. With the degradation of art in the last few decades, however, it is only through Matrix Martial Arts that the physics are coming to light again.

Three Things People Don’t Understand About Tai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi Chuan, the Grand Ultimate Fist, but what makes it so ultimate? What makes Tai Chi ultimate is that it takes intelligence to make work. This is not to insult other arts, but an inspection of the concepts necessary to Tai Chi that will convince most people that this is true.

I’ve selected three of the many concepts that a student must understand to get anywhere in the Grand Ultimate Fist. The first concept is simply emptiness. Most arts will take this concept only so far as having the fist loose before impact, focus, but that is where the art begins.

To understand Tai Chi one must understand that the entire body must become loose and empty. By becoming loose and empty the body can better feel the various incoming energies, and so handle them. This is easily understood if one understands that light travels best through a vacuum, and in Tai Chi the body must become a vacuum so that senses can travel through it, and emanate from it.

The second concept deals with the generation of power. In my first art, Karate, this was established through stancing hard and fast and causing the tan tien to explode with power. This is fine, except that tai chi relies on a slower explosion of power.

To generate power in tai chi one must take the low stance and grind the motion back and forth between the legs, and back and forth through the hips. Power comes up the legs and the tan tien doesn’t explode, it churns out energy slowly and carefully. Thus, there is a fine line between emptiness of the body, and the power generation of the legs, that must be mastered in Tai Chi.

Third concept, and, again, there are many more concepts, is the idea of moving slowly. Many people move slowly, and they marvel at how much world there is to see. Unfortunately, most people don’t understand that Tai Chi is first and foremost a fighting art.

Thus, when people move slowly in Tai Chi Chuan, they must not just relax and expand the senses, they must actively push energy with their limbs. This is a point many people miss, but which is crucial to the concept of enacting the imagination, and making the imagination wake up the true powers of an individual. The feeling should be like swimming, but the waters are imagination, and the resistance is very real, very worthwhile, and very combat functional.

There is so much to learn, an infinite to learn, and Matrix Tai Chi is a perfect tool to enable the learning process. The trick is to empty the mind to the possibilities, the trick is to relax and let oneself learn. The trick is to realize that it is not just art we are talking about when we speak of the Grand ultimate, but the very soul of a person.

The Secret Of Achieving Sixth Sense Abilities In The Martial Arts

All of my life I wanted to achieve fantastical sixth sense abilities. I wanted to be able to see inside minds, always be in the right spot at the right time, know what was going to happen before it happened. I discovered that the martial arts are the perfect way to develop these abilities.

Unfortunately, not all martial arts work in this manner. There are some arts that are incredible, and they open the spirit up and enhance abilities like nobody’s business. But then there are arts that are just thuggish cockfights, backroom brawls so low they make animals look high.

This difference, the difference between low and high martial arts, can easily be understood. It is very simple to discern why some arts excel when it comes to creating magnitude and finery in the human soul, and some don’t. This is actually not just a matter of philosophy, but a mechanistic condition relating to the nature of a human being.

Imagine the human spirit as a light bulb. There is the grungy, dingy one, maybe made of red glass, that hangs in some dungeon. Then there is the light that is sharp and shiny, a laser, able to illuminate anything it is shined upon.

A dirty light bulb stops the light, and we are talking about dirt as in anger and rage and the desire to hurt people. A laser light is not covered with filth, and the very waves of light have been aligned to make that light brilliant and infinite. So the first thing in this matter of gaining heightened sixth senses is to clean off the light bulb that you are, get rid of the rage and anger, and make all the parts of the body work together.

To coordinate the parts of the body so they work together, and are not possessed and filtered by anger, is something the human being does. The spirit, the real person, the actual being, must endeavor to accomplish this. Thus, to be a spirit, to ‘use’ the soul, in the simple act of coordinating the body parts, will cause the human being to shine brightly and put him on the road of increased abilities.

The second thing is to matrix the martial arts one is learning. This, again, is the act of alignment, but now one coordinates the pieces of the arts, and makes the arts into one functioning unit. Again, the spirit must be clean, unfettered, and diligent in creating this alignment of art.

Interestingly, alignment is nothing more than the fact of organizing, and it cleans the soul. In aligning body and art, one organizes the very spirit that one is, and when the soul is coordinated the sixth sense abilities will blossom. Coordination of body and alignment of art, this is how you Matrix Martial Arts and achieve greatness and magnitude and abilities of the sixth sense.

Monster Newsletter #296–Two New Master Instructors!

This morning is like falling in love!
It is that perfect!
It is so incredible.
Don’t worry,
I’m not going to burst into song,
but I feel like it.
La la la la!

I was thinking about this the other day,
the fact that nobody has made it to
Master Instructor
in the last couple of months.
lo and behold,
as soon as I had that thought,
I had two!
That’s right
two powerful beings
decided to double make my day!

First one to arrive in my email was…

To Al Case,

Subject: Thank so much

I have been meaning to write you for a while. However, been busy with my college courses. I purchased your series of Master Instructor, Power Kicks, Matrix Karate, Monkey Boxing, and Matrix Aikido.

I was shocked to see how fast I picked up, on the system. I am very impressed with the education/art of skill that came through to me. I have a better self-esteem, confidence, awareness, more peace into my life. I have learned to stay focused during conflicts that occur in my life. I do not have to give in during a heated conversation. I stay focused on the real matter at hand. Not those bunny trails that come up. Your rule # one comes into play so often, during these times. What a strategy it is.

I use to have a low self-esteem, before taking your courses, the fact that I can handle myself in a situation, is so nice. I use to hold my head down in crowds of people. No more, I walk with my shoulders back, my head held up. My friends and family have even notice the different air about me. The confidence in myself is a really good feeling.

The videos helped build my self-esteem, and now I give back to others, by sharing what you taught me. The proper mannerism, security, faith to do the right thing,

I will have a black belt in White Dragon next month, your technique has over flowed in to my training in White Dragon. My instructor keeps asking me how I know so much info, motor skills, attacks that he tries to implement, but fails.

I say that I research a lot and that I have a Sensei that I have been studying under. Your teachings have allowed me to advance way quicker than any one in my classes. The instructor is looking to bring me on with him. On the other hand, I could start my own classes using your teaching. Wow, I am happy, I not sure what to do yet. Probably going to carry on with what you have given me on the DVD set that I have. In addition, order the other set of training videos that you offer. You allow me as a student to soak up so much knowledge, along with the proper, correct skill of the Martial Arts.

As I look back though your course I see were you were so correct about the “For the True Art is a spirit that permeates your body and soul and enables you to achieve high abilities. “

Thank you Paul.
Thank you for making my day.

guys and gals,
Paul has illustrated the heart of the matter here.
You go to school,
and people say,

That’s not the way a human being works!
A human being is the fastest computer in the universe!
A human being does not learn by bits and pieces!
A human being absorbs knowledge wholesale!
He gobbles it!
All at once!

So I give you the Master instructor Course,
I say here’s why.
Here’s the reasons.
dit dot dit!
zingo bingo,
you do it!
what it is all about.
Read the testimonials
they are the proof.
Thanks Paul.

second win.
It came in an hour after Paul’s…


This is Dennis Johnson the disabled vet. who ordered several of your courses about a year ago. I have torn your courses apart from front to back and points in-between and have come to the conclusion that you’re about 75 years ahead of the rest of the world in figuring out what the masters of old wanted us to know.

Your matrix Karate was a fantastic course loaded with great information and WOW you left out all the B.S. that others add just to sell you something, the KATAS where well laid out with a perfect amount of movement so as to learn the material in a short amount of time with nothing that is needed left out. The monkey kung-fu along with the Aikido course was a perfect example of your true genius, you teach a lot of info in those two courses but what’s so interesting is how you leave a person with the ability to create an untold amount of combinations. In fact, Al, I can’t think of anything that I ordered from you that I’m not happy with.

I have three black belts in different arts which have now been re-opened with a whole new understanding of them. Your master instructor course was a wealth of info and not just on instructing but it was great for adjusting my own movements and fine tuning what I already knew. And to think I spent almost 8 years to get a black belt in PAI LUM kung-fu when it could have been done in a year or so.

Al when I ordered the courses from you I told you that I was hoping by getting back into the arts it would help me get back in focus after Iraq, well AL you have made life and working out worth the living again, well that may be stretching it just a bit.

AL I would highly recommend all of your material to anyone looking to learn a new art or improve on what they already know. In fact I’m going to order a few more in a week or two.


Again, Al, great stuff.

Dennis Johnson

P.S. The e-mails are also full of neat tidbits also, keep them coming!

Man oh man oh man!
Make my day twice!
Thank you Dennis.
what did I say about
a human being’s true speed of learning?
I rest my case.
I need say no more.
Dennis and Paul
have said it all.

guys and gals,
do you remember when something was giving you problems?
Maybe you couldn’t ride a bike,
or fix a car,
or just understand something the teacher said.
Then somebody told you…
‘The Why!’

relax a bit,
I’ll push you off…

Twist those bolts to the right.
Righty tighty…lefty loosey.

The word cornucopia means ‘having plenty of something.’

suddenly you were smart!
You could do it!
It wasn’t hard at all!
And then you turned around,
and somewhere along the line,
you got to help somebody else out!

Do you understand?

The Master Instructor Course
tells you all the things you need to know,
it gives you…
of the martial arts.

I tell you what it really means,
I tell you which way to turn it,
and I give you a little push,
and the result is wins like the ones
from Dennis and Paul!

Thank you
Master Instructors Paul Harling and Dennis Johnson,
and congratulations!

I dedicated a section to Master Instructors,
nothing but their wins,
here’s the page…

Master Instructor Wins!

I tell you this…
I want these kinds of wins
for every single person
in all the martial arts.

I want everybody to have all the knowledge!

We have to matrix the world,
we have to make it a better world,
and you guys are not only
‘The Why,’
you are
‘The How!’

All right,
guys and gals
get those stances low,
grind out that energy
and have a super work out.



Here’s a great article if you want to beef up your punch or kick!
Supercharging For The Most Powerful Punch!
Leave a comment, it helps my statistics.

Matrixing to Find the True Martial Art

To Matrix is to scientifically correct your body motion.
Look, you have a car, don’t you have to tune it up every once in a while?
Of course you do.
So why not the body?
The thing about the body is that if you learn the exact right ways to use it, the tune up process becomes part of your life. Simply, every motion becomes a tune up. Every motion becomes simple and efficient, and you do not fight your body.
When you learn the martial arts the instructor comes around, tells you to turn your wrist, maybe straighten it out, but that’s about all.
You never learn how to move the energy in your body and put it into the strike; you are left with the instruction that if you do forms for a couple of decades that you will suddenly get this mystical energy called chi and people will fall down if you flick a finger at them.
But when you matrix you learn what energy is, how to use it,and your education becomes complete.
The education merely consists of learning the right way to use your body. It consists of the real reasons, all the reasons, behind the martial arts.
The martial arts are a problem, and Matrixing is the solution, and through matrixing all the mystical things disappear, and you are left with a cold, hard science, a science which manifests such thigns as Chi easily and quickly. That’s the truth of Matrix Martial Arts.

Don Buck, The Tiger of Kyokushinkai

One of the instructors you never hear about, and should, was Don Buck. He was the first to open a Kyokushinjai school on the continental United States. Following is a list of his accomplishments.
Sensei Buck joined the army at 16, the tail end of world war 2. He so excelled at the physical tests that he was slated for commando school. He studied martial arts and boxing.
He was trained by Mas Oyama himself. He studied judo, jujitsu, and many kung fu systems, including hung gar and tai chi chuan. Mas Oyama liked Don, which meant that he was extra brutal in his training.
He is said to have completed the 100 man kumite without a loss. This statement alone is an eye blinker of massive proportion.
He was a champion powerlifter.
He was a police officer who, in spite of being injured in the line of duty (being hit from behind with a tire iron), went on to train intensively in the martial arts.
Many, many Kyokushinkai students can train their lineage back to this man.
There are biographies of Don Buck on the net, and they are interesting, to say the least. Students of Kyokushinakai will be fascinated, and proud, to be able to point at their lineage and know that this incredible person was responsible for their Kyokushinkai.

This is the kind of instructor we like to point at as a true inspiration at Monster Martial Arts.
