Republished a Martial Arts Book!

I republished Chiang Nan as a video course book.

It’ll be available on Amazon in a day or two.

It has links to about five hours of video.

So far I have several books repub-ed as ‘video course books.’

How to Fix Karate 1

Shaolin Butterfly (the butterfly form) (Kindle)

Shaolin Butterfly

Nine Square Diagram Boxing

Hidden Techniques of Karate (Chiang Nan)

Sales are good, and I thank you.

and I’ll be doing more books,

and writing new ones.

I have a couple of hundred hours of video

that have never seen the light of day,

so I’m looking forward to that.

And,

the courses are still the best source of information.

They have all the videos,

the best videos,

and all the bonuses.

Anyway,

I had a fellow asking about the usage of the hips in the martial arts.

The hips are the cornerstone of the martial arts,

because that is where the major weight of the body resides.

If you hit somebody, 

try to get your whole body behind the strike (block)

If you have to move out of the way,

you have to move the hips to effectively move the body.

Unless you want to bend at the hips and be out of balance.

We used to have an exercise.

We would hold a broom stick across the front of hips

then slam the hips back and forth,

pivoting from one front stance to another.

We would judge out effectiveness

by how well the tips of the broom stick

would snap into place.

Really got us centered down.

But here’s the funny thing,

each art has a specific to the hips.

Consider that there were only three directions that the hips can go,

forward, down and rotational.

In karate you thrust.

You drive the hips forward and align them with the strike or block.

In Pa Kua Chang you rotate the hips.

In Aikido you rotate the hips.

But in all arts you must sink the hips.

Sinking the hips connects with the ground,

braces your technique on the earth itself,

and you might consider a small study in physics

concerning the idea of grounding.

Understand what a ground is in electronics,

what it is in architecture,

and so on,

and suddenly you have the idea.

You see most people don’t understand

that their body is a machine

and that it must function as a machine.

Instead, they get emotional,

they start putting their attention (intention)

on their head,

and the body becomes up rooted easily.

One of my big kicks

was to show somebody how to ground.

I would push on their shoulders

and show them how to let the force

go through their bodies and into the ground.

Then,

when they had it,

I would simply say ‘look up,’

and they would fly away.

The col thing was that after I had done that a few times,

people started learning how to put their intention down,

and not be distracted by up.

In other words,

they learned not to be dependent upon their eyes.

They learned intention

without the distraction of the earthly senses.

Very interesting.

Want to know something REALLY interesting?

I would take a student and deliver strikes and have him give the blocks.

Easy peasy, he’s got it in no time.

Then I would have him close his eyes and I would say,

‘I am striking you slowly,

block when you feel it.’

Sometimes my strike would touch them.

Sometimes they would feet it coming too soon.

But eventually, and we’re talking about an hour or so,

even spread out over a couple of classes,

they would feel me coming and get it right.

Blew their minds.

You don’t need your eyes.

You don’t need your ears.

You just need to know where you are

and forget about what is happening.

It’s that easy,

and it changes everything you do.

It’ll change the way you move.

It’ll change the way you fight.

But don’t believe me.

Try it, you’ll like it.

But you should practice your forms a whole lot

before you try it.

The forms enable you to learn control and discipline,

and control and discipline

is what the martial arts are all about.

Anyway,

I’ll talk more on this stuff some day,

but for now,

check out my books from above

and have a great day.

Matrixing + Politics = Sanity

I told you matrixing works with anything.

Here’s the link…

How to Fix Karate! (volumes one and two)

volume one is at

And volume two is at…

How to Fix Karate (Volume Two)!

Zowie! Volume 2 of how to Fix Karate is out!

The whole book is over 400 pages,

around a thousand graphics,

over 50,000 words.

So I had to cut it in two. Amazon has a lot of trouble

with a book that size.

And, the cost for a book that size becomes exorbitant.

But…

volume one is at

And volume two is at…

I will be coming out with hard cover versions.

And thanks to all who have purchased volume one.

Any five star reviews would be appreciated.

Okay, 

let’s talk.

Got an email the other day,

and we were talking about force and flow.

And the concept of flow as more than just motion came up.

So,

let me explain.

Flow is motion

force is no motion.

This is not quite right,

of course.

force is going to be when two flows collide

and create other motion.

But it all becomes martial pertinent when you say

‘If the force is greater flow it,

if the flow is greater force it.’

Then you can consider force as no motion,

but it is really the moment when flow changes.

But this is all complicated when you take the mind into account.

flow is motion

emotion is motion inside the head.

read that again.

Make sure you understand it.

The point is that you need to rid your head of emotion

if you want to perceive motion correctly.

Emotion can slant your perception of motion.

But now things get interesting.

The body is a motor.

It can have motion.

But the mind just sits in the head,

or thereabout,

and it can create emotion outside the body.

(Actually, it’s not the mind,

it is the spirit, 

the mind is just a bunch of memory)

Let me explain.

Joe Blow gets emotion,

there’s all this anger running around inside his head.

With most humans the anger can get a little outside the head.

You can feel when somebody is angry.

It’s just…’in the air.’

But once somebody can control emotion,

he becomes more able to project emotion.

Mind you,

he doesn’t project willy nilly,

like a person out of control,

he projects with intention,

and you can fill the air with emotion.

You can stop people coming at you with emotion,

and you can control people with this kind of emotion.

When you are strong enough,

in control enough,

to project emotion,

it doesn’t feel like emotion.

It feels like…flow.

It is like an actual swirling in the air.

This is because it is not anger.

It is not out of control baby emotion,

it is full grown emotion moved around by…intention.

Your will.

Your desire to make things happen 

on a much higher level

than normal people are aware of.

So this is what is in my mind

when I speak of force, flow, emotion, and that sort of thing.

If you practice karate

or other classical arts

long and hard enough,

this all becomes second nature.

Matrixing,

of course,

will speed up your growth of these abilities.

It is just logical and makes sense,

and the concepts of the martial arts are easier to understand.

Here’s the links for the two volumes of

How to Fix Karate!

Neutronic Fighting in the Martial Arts!

Good morning!

Hi to Kumar and Jerome this week.

A quick announcement,

I’m not going to be issuing certificates any more.

Just don’t have the time.

In fact,

going to be changes around here,

and I’ll let you know of them in the coming weeks.

The book is done,

just waiting for proofs.

Proofs are copies just for the author

so he can see what the book looks like.

So, a couple of weeks and the book will be out.

Been a saga,

and I’ll talk about that on the official release newsletter,

but the thing that I want to talk about here

is more neutronic,

and how neutronic relates to fighting.

I believe I have said some of this before,

but it’s worth a second go around.

Neutron means nothing.

No weight, no mass, no intention, no direction.

It is the frame of mind you want to achieve.

And,

specific to the martial arts,

no emotion.

When somebody wants to fight you

they have to come for you.

I’ve actually stopped people from being aggressive with me

by simple saying,

‘You’re coming towards me.’

And who would come towards me in an aggressive manner?

The most obvious ones were people who,

when I was a teacher,

were upset about their child.

Parents can be really obtuse and mean.

But,

the thing is this,

there are actually two waves of attack.

Three if you count the idea of attack.

So,

first a guy gets the idea of attack,

second the guy has the emotion of attack,

third the guy attacks.

The thing that screws people up is this emotion thing.

Nobody understands emotion.

Especially not the psychiatrists

and the so called mental health ‘experts.’

Emotion is motion inside the head.

So the guy decides he wants to beat you up,

he throws rage at you,

then launches his body.

The rage is designed to intimidate you,

and to bolster himself.

The rage hits you

and you are slowed,

and the fight,

as your emotion starts to ratchet,

becomes a wallow through the currents of emotion.

I can’t tell you how to wallow through emotion.

That would be like telling somebody how to swim without water.

BUT,

you need to take emotion out of the equation.

Let the emotion wash past you,

not touch you,

observe without receiving his emotion,

or mounting any of your own.

This is one of the reasons people

should study such things as Yoga,

meditation,

or the martial arts concept of 

motion without having emotion.

(Mushin no shin ~ Mind of No Mind)

Don’t get angry.

If a guy throws a punch at you it is a gift.

He is communicating with you.

Rejoice,

look at it,

enjoy it,

handle it.

If you’ve got emotion going on yourself,

 it is difficult to handle other’s emotions.

Oddly,

I learned how to do without emotion by fighting.

I would do freestyle and focus on the opponent so hard

that I ended up in a sort of a tunnel,

looking at my opponent.

This put me out of my head

and out of emotion.

BUT…

I couldn’t have done that with fighting

if I hadn’t studied the forms first,

and learned the peculiar discipline that goes with that.

You can fight all you want and never get into the tube.

But once you dedicate yourself to learning about forms,

and about your form (your own body),

it becomes surprisingly easy.

It only took me about 20 years.

BUT…

with matrixing you can probably do it within a year.

Maybe even faster.

Matrixing aligns all the data,

arranges your understanding of incoming force

so that nothing surprises you.

Matrixing educates you as to how the body functions,

and about ten times faster than classical karate.

BUT…of course,

don’t give up that classical karate.

There’s gold in them thar hills,

especially once you have the pick and shovel of matrixing in your hands.

All the Styles of Karate!

What’s with all the different styles of karate?

I get asked about styles every once in a while,

and this is a tricky question.

It’s tricky because there are no styles.

Oh, there is the appearance of styles, especially for a beginner,

but a kick is a kick,

a punch is a punch,

and they can be fixed with an accurate application of physics.

So what are all these ‘styles?’

They are different methods for becoming expert…

and beyond.

Up to the point of expert a person is often enamored

with styles and differences.

Past expert,

if he really is an expert,

he realizes that no art is better or worse,

there is only better or worse training.

There is only better or worse application of the self to training.

Methods,

or what we call ‘styles,’

are just the means by which we get to expert.

Or beyond.

This idea,

that there are no styles,

is mentioned by old masters,

especially in Okinawa before Karate was exported,

Kanken Toyama states it directly.

Also, Jesse Enkamp has a nice episode on the subject.

One time I was talking to my instructor,

Bob Babich,

He had just left the Korean Karate Association

and was no longer allowed to use the term ‘Kang Duk Won,’ 

so he changed the name to Kwon Bup.

I asked him what Kwon Bup meant.

He had a book on his coffee table,

written in Korean,

which language he couldn’t speak or read.

He pointed at the book and said that his instructor gave it to him

and that the title was ‘Kwon Bup.’

Which means ‘Fist Method.’

So he decided to relabel his art ‘Kwon Bup.’

I asked him what the difference was between ‘Do,’ ‘The Way,’

and a method.

He shrugged and said,

“Is there one?”

He didn’t care about organizations (politics)

or styles or labels…

he just cared about the most efficient way to learn the art.

I hope that illustrates what i’ve said here.

Little Karate Things

Good morning!

It really is.

I don’t have a central theme today,

so just let me give you a couple of things

that I have been thinking about 

in the recent past.

.

Emptiness.

I first began to understand emptiness

when I realized that I had to relax totally, 

being in one position,

then I had to be in another position.

I didn’t move from within the body,

I moved from without the body.

I realized this way back in Kenpo days (1967-68)

.

Who stops you.

Two people can stop you.

Either yourself,

or somebody else.

But for somebody else to stop you

you have to let them.

You do not move the hips 

You move the legs,

and the legs move the hips.

This is the secret of ‘pulsing power.’

You push with the legs,

turn the hips,

strike.

.

When a sniper shoots

he relaxes,

and lets his breath out.

When the breath is totally gone,

everything will be still.

In that stillness

he should make the crook of the finger

the smallest thing in the universe.

This is the secret of the martial arts.

.

There is motion

easily seen,

there is emotion

easily felt.

The secret is to see the motion

and ignore the emotion.

To do this,

however,

you must negate emotion within yourself.

.

Anybody who approaches you wants something.

When you approach somebody you want something.

.

And,

let me give you a bigger slice of thought.

One of the most important things I ever read,

came out of a paper written on yoga (raja?)

back in the twenties.

The writer said a human being is encased in sheathes.

There is an emotional sheath.

There are cultural sheathes.

There are sheathes for beliefs,

for education and work and what people tell you…

and so on.

He mentioned several specific sheathes,

and I understood that these sheathes were the filters

through which I viewed the world.

I had understood something of the concept previously,

but this presentation was unique

made me look at the world differently,

and I started doing karate (and the martial arts) 

with the idea of breaking sheathes,

of destroying those things which surrounded me

made me what I am

and imprisoned me.

I found this paper on Gutenburg,

but I sure don’t remember anything more about it.

.

Here’s the obligatory ad…

When you fill the space around you with weapon,

you extend your awareness into that space

and become a bigger person.

The Night Before Christmas!

Okay,

it is that time of year.

i am about to offer my rendition of

The Night Before Christmas.

Before I do,

however,

I need to give you the true meaning of HanaKwanMass.

Hana = Hanukah

Kwan = Kwanza

Mass= Christmas

All three in one.

Now,

why do I do this?

Because Politically correct idiots

say I must not offend anybody.

If i say Merry Christmas

I offend others.

If I say Happy Kwanza

I offend others.

If I say Happy Hanukah

I offend others.

Well,

heck,

I can do that.

And if I put all three days

into one greeting…

I CAN OFFEND EVERYBODY!

Yippee!

Now that I have offended everybody

let’s delve into that arcane bit of literature,

The Night Before Christmas.

Go get yourself your favorite beverage,

put your feet up,

and read on!

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

Twas the night before Christmas

I was in my shack

primed and ready

for the red fat attack.

my weapons were loaded

the windows were barred

all would be safe

while I was on guard

The chimney was decked

with concertina wire

I crouched by the couch

ready to fire.

I had an M60

with ammo to feed

I didn’t care

if the red fat did bleed.

A loaded shotgun

and grenades to spare

when red fat came down

I’d blow him out of there.

Throwing stars and knives

and a really long sword

and if that didn’t work

I knew a bad word.

Sitting there late

my eyes started to close

when suddenly I heard

a bunch of ho hos.

Off with the lights

safety off, too

I  watched the fire close

and heard a sound from the flu.

‘Ouch and gosh darn it

who put the wire here

those are my undies

starting to tear!’

Then a shower of soot

and a grunt and a groan

he landed in the fire

and gave out a moan.

He was rubbing the place

where the wire did tear

so I held down the trigger

and lead filled the air.

belt after belt

did I deal the red fat

he danced and he jumped

I knew he felt that!

then quicker than spit

I ran out of lead

but enough was enough

he had to be dead.

Boy was I shocked

to see him stand tall

stepping out of the fireplace

not bothered at all.

So I grabbed up the 16

to mow him down

he had to be hurting

cause I saw his big frown.

Then I was empty

and he came straight for me

I pulled out my knives

and sliced him with glee

He jumped to the side

moving real quick

disarmed my knives

with a well placed kick

then he dropped the big bag

he had on his shoulder

reached forth his arms

and his anger did smolder

He grabbed hard my neck

and held me up high

I tried kicks and punches

but I was like a fly

Not karate nor judo

no art did work

and he grinned a mean grin

and called me a jerk

‘Don’t you know

you stupid little man

Christmas is forever

in spite of your plan.’

Then he threw me aside

and proceeded to work

giving presents to all

and to me a great smirk

And when he left

the great big red fat

he left me a lump of coal

the big red fat rat!

13 Reasons People Degrade the Martial Arts

You survived Thanksgiving!

And now it’s almost time for Christmas,

or as I call it,

HanaKwanMass!

Happy HanaKwanMass!

Okay, let’s talk about people who degrade the martial arts.

I’m not talking about people outside the martial arts,

we all know they are idiots,

talking about something they know nothing about.

I’m talking about people inside the martial arts.

People who say things like,

or hold the opinion that…

My art is better than your art.

That art sucks cause it wouldn’t work in the ring.

and,

of course,

the dreaded…

IT’S A MCDOJO!

So I was just sitting around

and popped out 13 quick reasons

why these people say bad things about the arts,

or other martial arts.

Here they are:

  1. people who have not studied it completely
  2. people who have not been able to make it work
  3. people who received inadequate training
  4. people who received an incorrect form of the art
  5. people listen to other people and aren’t able to think critically about what they hear
  6. people of low character (negative people)
  7. people who have been trained/influenced by negative people
  8. people who think you have to beat somebody up (joy of combat)
  9. people who have studied a little and think they know something
  10. people who have a need to be ‘the’ authority
  11. people who practice putting other people down to make themselves ‘bigger’
  12. people who are general malcontents (disgruntled)
  13. people who are ignorant and can’t think

Of course,

some of these reasons overlap,

and there are doubtless more reasons,

but they boil down to one basic thing.

People who speak ill

of others, of other arts,

are ignorant.

Go on,

read the list again

and you will find that common denominator.

Haven’t been trained enough so they ignorant…

haven’t gotten a true version of the art so they are ignorant…

can’t make it work so they are definitely ignorant.

Now,

what do you do about ignorant people?

What’s that old saying?

You can’t live with them but you can’t kill them.

So the choices you have are two,

and only two.

First,

if they can be educated

you can educate them.

Sit down, talk with them,

show them where they are wrong.

This one,

quite honestly,

doesn’t work.

First,

you are talking to somebody who is so ignorant 

they are holding on to their ignorance like it was a banner.

Here’s the thinking behind that:

I’m right and if you try to educate me

then you are attacking my rightness and I will kill you.

Go on, 

read that again.

If you try to smarten me I’ll hurt you.

That’s a mantra for idiots,

and yet it is prevalent in the world.

It is probably,

if you think about it,

political rule number one.

But don’t get me started on government.

So,

the first solution,

while it is the preferred,

is only rarely able to be applied.

And that leaves us with rule number two.

Now,

I’m going to speak French here,

just to let the easily offended know,

so they can plug up their ears.

But,

my personal solution,

the way I get through life while surrounded by idiots is

Stay away from assholes.

There it is,

I think this is the first time in over a thousand newsletters

that I have used bad language.

Sorry.

But we can transcribe that to English…

STAY AWAY FROM IDIOTS!

Simply,

if you rub elbows with idiots,

with the truly ignorant,

you risk getting their ignorance all over you.

You will get involved in all sorts of unpleasantness

as they hang on to their ignorant ‘rightness’

and try to hurt you.

Now,

why do I speak of this here?

First,

because people should learn how to survive

the stupidity of this world.

Second,

there might be an ignorant person reading this.

Right now.

And I am really hoping

that they scratch their head,

wonder if I could actually be talking about them,

and perhaps even start the arduous journey

to the land of critical thinking.

The Zen of the Martial Arts

Good morning!
I’m going to go all zen on you today,
so check out now if you think philosophy is garbage.

It’s funny,
probably the best definition for philosophy I ever heard
came from Bill Cosby.
He was asking the question,
‘Why is there air.’
All the philosophy professors would ask this
and that would lead them into a discussion of the cosmos
and God,
and life and everything.
And he said it’s a dumb question,
Just ask any coach and they’ll tell you
‘Air is so we can fill up balls.’

With that bit of droll humor in mind,
zen is supposed to be very philosophical.
It isn’t,
but we’ll just let that sit for a while.

So when I was about 15 or 16
my brother comes home and he tells me a joke.
He asks:
‘What is the difference between a duck?’
I look at him blankly,
it makes. no sense,
I shake my head
and he says:

‘One leg is both the same.’

And he walks off laughing hysterically.
Idiot brother.
Probably doesn’t even know what a ball is for.

But here’s the funny thing.
When I think back over my life,
that 73 long years that went by in a snap,
I don’t remember the jokes I heard.
I must have heard THOUSANDS of jokes!
But none of them were worth remembering.
But that joke about the duck,
and one leg being both the same,
it is vivid,
seared into me.
and I can’t forget it.
So my brother’s joke has had incredible impact on my life.
Which makes it the greatest joke of all time.
At least for me.
And,
it has zen implications.

After all,
the most famous zen saying of all time
is probably
‘what is the sound of one hand clapping.’
Tell me that doesn’t make as much sense as:

‘what’s the difference between a duck?’

And,
let’s translate that zen ‘joke’ to the martial arts.

‘What is the difference between a martial artist?’
And there are two very distinct un-zenlike answers.
And the answers,
applied to life,
result in two types of people.

The first type of person is one who needs to be entertained.
The second type of person is one who doesn’t need to be entertained.

And what the heck does that mean?
A lot, thank you, and here we go…

People are either creators,
or they are created.

People either search out something to entertain them,
or they produce.

This isn’t an absolute,
of course.
It’s one of those scales like:

to the degree that one produces
to that degree he doesn’t need to be entertained.
And,
to the degree that one is entertained,
to that degree he doesn’t produce.

I look at kids today,
needing to be entertained by a brainless video game.
and I would be disgusted,
except I used to bury my head in a book.
I needed to be entertained.

Where this would have gone I don’t know,
because I discovered martial arts,
and,
as you all know,
the martial arts seriously warps personalities.

But,
instead of needing to be entertained,
to read the latest book,
to go to the latest movie,
to waste time chattering over the latest stupid joke,
I started working.

I worked out,
learning and doing forms,
repeating them endlessly,
looking for some odd concept called…’perfection.’
Could I turn the hand right,
could I snap the foot perfectly,
could I perceive the attack before it came.

It didn’t happen fast,
it was more like a slow cook,
but I stopped needing to be entertained.
I started creating.
Instead of reading books
I started writing books.
Instead of wanting to be absorbed by a movie,
I wanted to be absorbed by a form.
Instead of needing to be entertained,
I entertained myself…by producing.
I became a totally and utterly different human being.

What a weird metamorphoses.
Hopefully you now understand the point,
you see the zen of it all.
Don’t play,
work.
The end of life comes too fast
and you need to hurry to get everything done,
but you won’t get anything done
if you’re sitting around trying to be entertained.

And that’s the difference between a duck.

have a great work out!

A NEW MASTER INSTRUCTOR!

Congrats to the latest Master Instructor…

Mr. Francisco Sierra de la Rosa

Here’s his win…

In my case, being a person who already practiced martial arts before, both Chinese and Japanese styles, the concepts I was looking for were not so much technical concepts as the possibility of learning elements related to teaching, body structure, and the science behind the movement of the body when practicing martial arts.

I consider that in the course there are really useful and important tools when it comes to martial arts and their application, very important is the lesson on grounding and how it affects the movement of our body and the ability of this to relate to an opponent.

Another concept very well treated in the course is the explanation to the student of concepts such as the generation of energy and the importance of dantien … or at least a simple way to understand the Chinese teachings on how force works.

I consider that one of the most interesting elements that I have learned is the importance of angles in martial arts, it is true that this concept I had dealt with before, almost without realizing it, but not with this clarity, applicable to different situations.

In short, if we are able to combine our physical structure, with the world around us, we find the practical application of lines, angles, circles and elements that undeniably build the world, the result of this I consider these concepts of the most important during learning in the course, and applicable in all systems that someone works, with their differences and details of each art.

Thank you, Francisco, and well done!

He’s really pointed out three crucial items.

teaching, body structure and…

the science behind body motion.

Teaching is easy to understand,

take something from your mind

and put it into your student’s.

But…so few can do it.

Body structure is another bug a boo.

It is crucial,

but nobody understands the six secrets

that will make ANY martial arts technique work.

The big item, however,

is what is behind motion.

Would you like to know what I was thinking,

when I wrote about 

what is behind the Martial Arts?

It’s real simple,

but unless you get it,

you don’t understand what is behind motion.

The best way to explain this is this…

You are looking through binoculars.

Who is looking?

You.

The binoculars are but a tool.

Okay, you are looking through your eyes.

Who is looking?

You.

The eyes are but a tool.

Now,

I have said everything,

that is the secret.

And to understand the martial arts,

the universe and life, 

all you have to do is understand one thing:

Who are you?

Okay, obligatory ad…

The Master Instructor Course.

All the secrets

easy to understand,

easy to teach.

You’re welcome.

HAVE A GREAT WORK OUT!
