Teaching a Karate Class to Read Minds

 Karate Class reads minds

I was teaching a matrix karate class the other night, and the subject of reading an opponent’s mind came up. Rather, I told the guys to shut up and read minds.

There was a bit of surprise. The students all wanted to talk and ask questions…the exact opposite of what I had just told them.

So I said, “Shut…in silence you can read minds. You can’t read minds if you are talking so much that all you can hear is the talking.”

The noise level went down a wee bit.

“Look,” I said, “you could do forms and techniques and fight for thirty years…or you can follow my instructions and read minds in a couple of hours.”

After a minute of waiting for them to focus more on their forms and less on my words, I began to talk softly and unobtrusively. I wanted them to be able to do their techniques and input my data at the same time. They were all good enough, had reached a sufficient level of intuition, to do that.

“There is the body, and there is the mind, and there is the spirit. Discipline the body, and the mind starts to get disciplined. Discipline the mind enough, and the spirit starts to get disciplined.”

I changed directions to surprise them and give them example and make their minds retain the lesson.

“It is true that the eyes are the windows to a man’s soul. Once you are disciplined enough you can look into the eyes and you will see thoughts. If a car was careening towards you, would you look at the car, or would you look at the driver?”

One student said, “I’d dodge the car.”

I made the buzzer sound. “AHHH! Roadkill!”

Another student said, “Look at the driver?”

“You live,” I told him. And I looked at Mr. Roadkill and grinned. “You’re still dead.”

The class chuckled ruefully at the death of one of their own.

“The car is an object, and you must look at that which thinks the car along its path. The body is a meat object, and you must look through the windshield of the eyes and see that which thinks the body along its path. Stop listening to me and do your techniques without the distraction of my voice. Don’t be fooled by the flesh…search for the spirit; search for yourselves.

The Karate class concentrated on their martial arts training, and I knew that though their minds were blinking, they would soon turn off, and the blessed silence of their spiritual nature would shine forth.

This technique only works with fully matrixed forms. I recommend starting with the Matrix Karate course at Monster Martial Arts…that is the surest way to learn to read minds through the martial arts.
