Tai Chi Chuan Excellent for Defeating Kung Flu!

Newsletter 997

What Tai Chi Really is and Means!

Before I get started,
remember that I have a couple of specials
available on my site.
Matrix Karate is discounted,
There is a two for one offer on that page
Read this blog for details.


I do this because lots of people
can’t go to the dojo,
and you need to keep practicing.
A hardy body/immune system
is crucial to beating the Kung Flu.

Okay, let’s talk about Tai Chi Chuan.

Tai Chi Chuan means
‘the grand ultimate fist.’
Some bozos think it is proud brag,
that it refers to Tai Chi being better
than all the other arts.
Not the meaning at all.
It’s much more than that.

I have over 50 years in the martial arts.
Probably 45 of them studying Tai Chi.
Lots of Tai Chi.
All the styles.
Read all the books,
and so on.

When I first began Tai Chi,
back about ’74,
I came across a wood carving.
It was old,
a couple of hundred years,
and on it was a bird’s eye view
of the top of a mountain range,
and it looked like a yin yang symbol.

I was like,
what the heck?
How did this carver know what a bird sees?
Well, he was supposed to have studied Tai Chi.
That one concept,
that a person could get so out of his body
that he could look down on the highest mountains,
guided my Tai Chi.
I always had that in mind.
For many years it was just an idea.
Cool, but no progress.
But I persisted.

But changes occurred,
and eventually I began experiencing
what that wood carver must have experienced.

I was doing Tai Chi the other day,
standing in the middle of a road
doing my versions of Tai Chi.
I was higher than the road,
looking down on it
as if from a rooftop.
I mean it was like I was standing
on top of a bowl
that was upside down.
The world just curved away and down from me.
I was up,
the world was beneath me.

So let’s talk about this phenomena.

There is no proof that the world exists.
It’s all just sort of…assumed.
as I prefer,

I mean…you are,
and that’s about all you can say.
But you can’t prove that you are to anybody else.
to be honest,
everything in the whole universe
might be a figment of your imagination.
You know?

When you do the Tai Chi form
you push awareness through your body,
which validates your body,
more important,
validates you.

You are the center of the universe,
and by doing the Tai Chi form over and over
(I’ve probably done it 20 or 30 thousand times in 45 years.)
you become aware of this.

Awareness is the crux of reality.
Reality doesn’t exist except as you are aware of it.

Do you understand?

over the years,
Tai Chi makes you more and more real
as the center of the universe.
After all,
it is your awareness that is making your life happen.

This is how a wood carver
hundreds of years ago
can be higher than the mountain tops.

I tell you from personal experience,
it takes time and effort and hard work over time.
And I mean to be redundant.

get started now.
Tai Chi takes less effort than say Karate,
or harder forms of martial arts,
so you can do it longer.

It has direct effect on your body systems.
You will have less colds,
more immunity,
and the hell with this Corona crap.

to help you out,
let me make a special Corona offer.

I Got Your Karate Lessons Right Here…Only $2!

Karate Lessons for Only $2?

How much Karate can you learn for $2? Eh?

Well, maybe a lot, especially if you have $2 to spend on the Best Online Karate Lessons in the World.

This Karate Lessons are actually a course, and it takes a person right from white belt through black belt.

karate lessons

This guy hasn’t heard the news!

The question is…is it worth the money.

Consider the contents of the first of the karate lessons, the white belt to orange belt level. On that lesson you get a check list to go through. The checklist is thorough.

You get a section on how to do warm ups.

You get a link to a section on Karate basics, all done in video.

You get advice on how to do Martial Arts Katas and techniques.

You get a part on how to do the first Karate Kata, or form.

You get a section on how to do the applications so they will REALLY work.

And, you get a BONUS section on how to translate the movements into the methods used by the original founders of the art. This BONUS section itself is worth gold! It takes you back to how and why Karate was invented, and what the original moves had to have been.

And, the thing makes so much sense that you can’t argue!

And, even if you are slow to think and do wish to argue, you can’t stop thinking about this totally original take on what Karate is!

Now, with this much quantity, and, to be honest, this much quality, why is the price so low?

Because there are a lot of people out there who a) believe you can’t trust the net, b) believe that you can’t learn the martial arts off the internet, c) that the thing is a scam!

But who can argue if it only costs two bucks to find out?

The good news is that this lesson isn’t a ‘cheapie’ to entice to learn and then gouge, it is representative of a sequence of prices that are UNBELIEVABLE!

And, the ulterior motive here?

To teach people good, solid Karate. To make them think, to realize, to get strong and powerful.

To make the weak strong, and the bullies into non-bullies.

And, who knows, you might get to loving this spectacular art so much you order other courses!

Of course, it’ll cost you $2 to find out.

I’m a martial artist, and it’s My Fault!

Speaking of martial arts,
have you ever noticed
that when the crap hits the turbine blades
it’s a martial artist
that seems to appear?
when there’s an accident,
or a bunch of people are panicking,
or something,
the guy who appears and handles the problem
is invariably a martial artist.
Maybe he studied a litt,e
maybe a lot,
but the one factor behind this is
this is a guy who’s trained himself
to stay calm in the middle of action.
martial artistYeah,
it’s not just for fighting,
it makes you a better human being,
a focused human being,
a guy (or gal)
who can get the job done.
That’s what the martial arts do.
One time I was in a hardware store,
and this bum comes in
and he starts screaming that he bought a green hat,
and he wants to buy another one,
but there’s no more green hats in the store,
and he’s got every in the store frozen,
he’s acting psychotic,
and he’s screaming things,
and I’m standing over by the hammer section or something,
covering the grin on my face
(I stopped being scared of bums some forty-five years ago)
and he suddenly screams out
“I want to know whose fault it is!
I want to know who did this!”
I couldn’t help myself.
All these people looking down,
not knowing what to do
not a martial artist in the crowd,
I had to help them out.
So I said,
“It’s my fault.”
Every head in the place swiveled around,
every eyeball was pointed at me.
The bum stood there was his mouth open.
“I did it.
It’s my fault.
The whole thing is my fault.”
The bum blinked,
he tried to eyeball me,
get back to the drug rant he was on,
but he couldn’t.
I knew he was full of crap.
And I knew it so strongly,
my belief was so firm,
that he knew it, too.
My belief system,
powered by thirty years of martial arts,
simply overwhelmed his belief system.
He turned around and stumbled out the door.
the reason I was there was to buy a bottle of glue.
I was gluing books together,
and I simply needed another bottle of glue.
The manager of the store was so grateful
he tried to give me the glue for free.
People kept grinning at me,
I had handled the crazies.
facing a Hells Angel in Karate freestyle
was about ten times worse than that bozo.
He had nothing,
the unfortunate fact was,
there was about twelve people in that store,
who had less.
They were the victim of a street bum,
and I know that none of them had studied the martial arts.
you could tell,
none of them had that level look in their eyes.
And I know that any one of you guys
would have done the same thing.
That is what a martial artist does.
He trains hard,
he lives a quiet and fun filled life,
and when somebody has to step up to the plate…
that’s what we’re for.
in the best sense of the word,
because we’re dedicated to help.
Never get a thanks,
don’t need one,
but we get to chuckle and grin a lot more,
than the poor people who don’t know the martial arts.
let me say a couple of things,
and give a win.
The post office is having troubles.
Don’t let it bug you if an order is late.
Give it an extra day,
then simply email me,
I’ll make sure that everything gets handled.
the great matrixing tour is getting more real.
I actually have an RV.
Of course,
I need a truck,
a 250 diesel or some such,
and there are things I am learning about RVs
that are making my wallet cry,
but that’s okay.
still not sure when,
but time is getting closer.
One of the most important things
is making sure I am never severed from the net,
I need to blog,
write articles,
send newsletters,
and upload videos from the trip.
I need to make sure the internet biz is going well enough
to support the trip.
tons of little,
and big,
things to do.
got a great win…
Hey Al,
I received the 3 month Black Belt course and I have just finished watching the DVD’s and wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed them. It is definitely a great addition to the collection of DVD’s I have received from you to date. I gotta say watching EW go from white belt to black belt was absolutely amazing. You can really see the progress that he made. I remember reading your description of the training process and how you stated that he wasn’t pretty but the intuition was present. I have to say that you are an amazing instructor. Although I agree with you on the pretty part,(no insult to EW) you can see that that does not matter. The intention and intuition are clearly there.. The pure energy that was flowing from him in the Black Belt segment really impressed me, for the short amount of training he received. Well done Master Founder. I really enjoyed watching him lose the Re-action time. I believe that is what impressed me the most. To have that ability in such a short time is truly a feat in itself. I am not sure if you two have continued your Shaolin training, but I hope that you have as you have helped him to grasp the TRUE ART. I consider myself extremely lucky to have come across your website, it has truly improved not just my physical abilities in the Martial Arts but more importantly my mental abilities and that I thank you for. Again well done Sensie.
Michael G
Thanks, Michael,
I thank you for those kind words
Now, a couple of things,
the Shaolin course,
has been rendered for the fight training sequences,
and is in the Rolling Fists course,
which is on the Monster homepage.
while the course is good for all,
it is especially perfect
if you started martial arts,
but had to put them on the burner for a while.
this isn’t a bunch of forms and applications
with the advice to practice,
these are actual lessons,
I am teaching,
using matrixing,
and making a person competent
in months
instead of years.
not pretty.
the reason EW is able to become intuitive
and lose reaction time,
and have a drastically up curve in the power of his punches and kicks,
is because of the matrixing drills
the matrix of applications,
the method of freestyle,
the two man forms,
and all the other stuff.
if you had to stop your study,
or are in place where there is no qualified instructor,
darn it,
you just want to learn matrixing or another art or whatever…
the Black Belt course is for you.
as with everything I do,
money back guarantee.
I deliver what I promise,
Okey donkey,
time to end off,
got to get to work
got to make the Matrixing Tour happen,
thanks to all who ordered
the Neutronic Motors of Pa Kua Chang.
And be sure to let me know if there is any trouble with paypal,
with the download,
or anything else.
Have greatness

And the complete quote is…
Legitimate use of violence can only be that which is required in self-defense.
And, I had some interesting responses to this theory. Mostly that it was okay, but incomplete. What about pre-emptive strikes, for instance.
Got an opinion on it? Send me, maybe I can do a newsletter on this interesting subject.

How to Do the Three Month Black Belt course

Karate Black Belt
The Three Month Black Belt Course is really the ultimate in Online Martial Arts training.
The way to do it is to simply watch the videos and do the material on that belt level.
Each level has a form, two man form, applications, and the Matrix.
So you get a partner and do the basics each lesson. You watch a segment of the basics, see my student doing the basics, understand exactly what he is doing, and then do it yourself.
Then you do your two man form, making sure you work on it exactly as I tell you in the video. Check your partner out and have check you out, and make sure you have perfect form by using the drills I give, and by reading written material on the Matrix Karate course.
Do the Two man Forms, back and forth, until you can do them as easily as walking.
Then do the Matrix Forms. These Kata are simple, yet make the connection between form and fighting.
After the forms, do the Matrix. Make sure you don’t bang on the each other too hard in the beginning. Get to the point where you can do the full matrix in 15 minutes or less, and with good control. Sloppy control counts for nothing. Time for the mini-matrixes aren’t important…just make sure you understand the moves and can do them easily without thinking about them.
You have to stop thinking about what you are doing. This is not memorization work, but a logical format which will pull you along.
The important thing is to do it until you remember it without thinking. This should only take a half a dozen or ten times through.
And don’t use too much force, let the force grow.
Finally, do some freestyle. Make sure you do the level of freestyle you are supposed to do, and don’t get ahead and do full freestyle until you are supposed to. Remember, you arelearning, and to break the program will hold back your learning.
Finally, when you can do the material as good or better than my student does it on the last tape, you are there. This doesn’t mean you stop training. On the contrary, you have just started. You will be experiencing intuition and all sorts of things, and you must make sure you keep training, keep learning.
Remember, you have knowledge, but you don’t have experience…you must train hard and overcome this problem.
That’s how you do it, so write me and let me know of your successes.

About the Three Month Black Belt

Black Belt Monkey

Can a Monkey Get a Black Belt?

A couple of things people should know about the Three Month Black Belt Course.
First, I know there will be furor concerning this course. Everybody will have an opinion, probably gonna be some unkind words tossed my way. I will pay attention to those words only if they come from people who have seen the course.
People who haven’t seen the course don’t know what’s on it, are basing their opinion not on facts, but on their experience, which experience is tainted by the state of the martial arts in this world.
So let’s talk about the facts behind the Three Month Black Belt Course.

I believe it was back in the seventies when I first read about the fellow who was teaching a chimpanzee Karate.
He had him up to Green Belt; apparently the fellow had taught him forms and techniques to a Green Belt level. I’m assuming here, to be broad in my definitions, that the Green Belt spoken of is approximately one/third of the way through a ‘standard’ Karate system.
A few years later I heard that the monkey was closing in on Brown Belt.
Now, I haven’t seen the monkey. My info came from articles written concerning it. Though, I have to say, there is a clever clip on the net showing the monkey in action.
And, for those who doubt, a monkey is supposed to be able to remember 600 words; to associate 600 ‘commands’ with the appropriate concepts.
I would hazard that this might be as much as 6000 if the concepts had to do with physical motion. After all, a monkey is quite expert at physical motion.
But even if the number is only 600, the fact remains that this is probably enough to remember sufficient techniques to be regard as a Green Belt.

The point of all this is that we have been taught martial arts through a monkey see monkey do method.
It is common for an instructor to tell a student to do the forms until he sees what is in them. This practice merely points to the fact that the instructor lacks the ability/language to describe exactly how to do a technique.
And it drives the martial arts into mysticism.
Mysticism is merely when there is insufficient language to describe a phenomena occurring in this universe.

What I have done in Matrixing, and through the Three Month Black Belt Course, is offer a language, a terminology, by which all the phenomena of the martial arts can be described.
No mysticism involved, this raises the arts to the level of a science.

Now, that all said, let’s discuss the student I promoted to Black Belt.
EW was instructed on the basics movements to a point where his understanding of them is far, far beyond the modern day practitioners. This is obvious when he moves into the Matrix portion of the course. Indeed, a couple of techniques in the Matrix will not be understood, and done only by luck, by even advanced practitioners.
There won’t be any argument concerning this point…EW is definitely a Green Belt, and actually far better than a Green Belt in this respect.

Now, we could make the argument that expertise in Karate is proportional to basics mastered, but that isn’t enough.
A Brown Belt is usually recognized by the development of a certain sheer, raw power. We used to say that a Brown Belt was more dangerous than a Black Belt because he had the Power, but didn’t know how to control it.
At Brown Belt EW became able to punch me across the room. You can observe the training methods, which methods are recored in part in ‘The Punch,’ which is the book I wrote on the subject.
Now, I could have taken more time on this level, and in other areas, but there is a phenomena that occurs which you should be aware of.
If you don’t reward a person when he achieves he goes onto a plateau. If you reward him…no plateau. This is a matter of precise timing and awareness as a teacher.
Done right, the student appreciated for his gains at exactly the right time, learning continues up, instead of flattening out for a period of time.
I am going against something that is terribly ingrained in the human psyche: you must make a person suffer through a level. He has to endure bruises, he has to go through a rite of passage.
The reasons for this type of thought are many, but they boil down to one factor.
A surface reason would be: instructors stretch out time of training for money.
An historical reason for this would be that there really wasn’t any other place to go. You study in sensei’s backyard, and we have nothing else to do, so let’s go over to Sensei’s house and study. And the years pas.
The real reason would be that the art was in shards and pieces, and there were so many blank spots in the art that people had to be drilled through the blank spots. Proof of this is simple: this is why people drop out.
People drop out because they don’t understand. People are particularly resilient and hardy and filled with courage, but it’s hard traveling through a tunnel when there are no lights and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. This is the effect of the art being in pieces and filled with blank spots.
I would be remiss, at this point, if I didn’t point out that Matrixing fixes that.
At any rate, Power turned on in EW, and we continued upward, in lieu of being stuck on a plateau.
Yes, there is more we can do with power–and we fully intend to–but it is more important to keep the learning curve going up–holding our sights on the Black Belt–than stopping to sniff the daisies of power.

At Black Belt EW turned on Intuition.
This was a result of holding to the path without distraction, using Matrixing to CBM his body, and not having any blank spots to slow him down or hold him back.
Intuition, in this case, can be appreciated by his loss of reaction time.
But, intuition is a vast and large subject: it is the perception of the individual waking up to who he is.
Mankind, you see, for the most part, is fairly well unconscious. Sleepwalkers. Hypnotized into thinking that they are aware, when they are not.
They are not aware if they don’t have the perceptions not associated with having a body.
Do you hear that little voice advising you? Do you pay attention to this? That is an attribute of awareness, of what is commonly referred to as a sixth sense. That little voice is not hearing, nor seeing, nor smelling…nor anything having to do with perceiving through the body.
This awareness, and it goes far beyond ‘little voices,’ is the perception of the sleeper awakened.
Now, if you want to research this, go for it, it is a subject that is…split into shards and filled with blank spots.
However, I was awakened through the Kang Duk Won, and that through the efforts of one individual who taught without distraction, and who had stumbled upon CBM naturally. That would be Bob Babich.
I have seen but rare instance of anybody else ‘waking up’ through the Martial Arts. And certainly not in a timely fashion (Three Months).
I used Matrixing to be able to do what Bob was doing using the Kang Duk Won.
Matrixing is a science that works quickly and logically to move one down the path, to a Black Belt (one signpost on the path to full awareness), and far beyond.
In the coming months I am sure EW is going to be experiencing some interesting phenomena. Dreams, lack of dreams, oddities of reaction time, oddities of perception, and so on.
I have a fairly good account of this type of thing written in ‘Entering the Third Level,’ which book is one of the Ten Master Books. It is easy to verify my words, and even to predict what people will go through once they achieve a real Black Belt, or awaken in the manner I describe.
So, is there more to do?
Good Lord, of course. You will notice that in EW’s win he talks about there being so much to learn. The sleeper awakened looks around, sees all the things he hasn’t been seeing, and wants to know it all!
Now, before I move on, let me answer a question you will be, courtesy of my words here, asking yourself sometime in the coming months.
Yes, you are asleep. Unless you have experienced the things described in Entering the Third Level, unless you have experienced a discipline designed to wake you up, you are unconscious. You have been hypnotized to believe that you are awake.
A more cruel trap could not be envisioned.
What do you do about it? Study…discipline yourself. If you are a martial artist, apply the science of Matrixing…and wake up.
On this planet, at this time, it is necessary.

Now, we are addressing the martial arts.
EW ‘awoke,’ you can see it in his eyes. I used to see it in the eyes of my fellow Black Belts at the Kang Duk Won.
An attribute I might mention, at this point, is that a fellow who has awoken does not point at himself, he merely becomes competent and capable, he fixes his eyes on targets and goes there without distraction.
That mentioned, let’s discuss what is next for EW.
We continue to work on Basics, because there is no end to basics.
We refine his Power by ‘going backwards.’ We don’t make more power by making more muscle, but by learning how to use less muscle. This is actually quite crucial, and one of the main reasons that Martial Artists stall past Black Belt. Simply, he learns how to make energy by not resisting himself, by not making great effort, but by making less effort.
If you are a Black Belt and don’t understand what I just said, then you need to go through the Three Month Karate Course, achieve what EW has achieved, and prepare for your next real step in the martial arts.
I can unstall you, get you moving, and show you how to actually create and use Chi (energy) in the martial arts. I can make you more aware.
The Next Level is going to deal exactly with making chi and using it.
If you haven’t gone through the Three Month Course…you will still have blank spots, you will still learn like a monkey memorizing, and you will not understand much of the material.

Now, let me explain one other thing here.
EW has much to learn. He knows this. But…where is he in regard to the traditional Black Belt?
This is the question that everybody is going to be asking.
Though you can’t compare the two, I can explain a couple of things to help you understand.
EW has the knowledge, more knowledge, than a Black Belt. He does not have the experience.
But he has a learning curve that is going up at near 45 degrees, compared to a Black Belt, who is going up at maybe a degree or two.
Within a few months experience won’t matter. Within a few months we are going to find out what a sleeper awakened can do.
Talk to you then.
