How to Be a Professional Martial Artist…

Newsletter 872

Final Word on Professional Martial Arts Instructor

Happy Sunday morning!
I find sunday work outs to be so spiritual.
But any day of the week,
I can get spiritual
by doing a form.

You simply get into your form.
Push distractions out of your universe
and focus only on the form,
you’ll find a deep sense of self
that is truly rejuvenating.

Okay,
got a wonderful first win off
The Professional Martial Arts Instructor book.
Here go…

Greetings Al, I have recently finished the PMAI manual and I think its excellent and well put together. I already have a number of your books, but this one, is my favorite.

I have purchased a number of your Martial Art books, in the past, and enjoy reading them still. What I like about this specific book is, the way you have laid and lined out the information from many of the your earlier books, in a very easy to understand format.

Really, the first two sentences sum up the importance and need, for this book.

(“The essence of a teacher is the ability to transmit a thought to a student. Without this ability there is no education, there is no future for civilization.”)

To the point that although I have done many of the things, and practiced your arts described in the manual, this book has a load of new information. That I find very valuable and even after 7yrs of working on the material, you are correct, in your earlier newsletter about valuable new information.

Excellent information again!

As stated earlier, I have read the book in its entirety and will read it again. I would suggest one thing, I think a few study questions at the end of each chapter, would be a great study aid…maybe just a few questions per chapter and a answer page, at the end of the book.

I think that this will help as a study aid. If even though, like me, you have scribbled notes in your copy, a study guide would be beneficial.

Really a great manual if you are aspiring to be a PMAI.

Well done Professor!

I do believe I will pursue certification.

Have a great workout

thanks to SG,
I appreciate your kind words.

And,
for those who aren’t interested,
I’m going to be addressing the Professional Martial Arts Instructor book this issue,
so if you’re not interested,
go work out,
and I’ll talk to you next newsletter.

So,
launching of the book is about over,
so let me address a few concerns
and tell you where this is going.

I love doing videos,
but I’m a writer first.
When the EMP goes off
and computers are gone,
we’ll be back to books.

When the archives of digital information fade,
we will still have books.
Heck,
the written wordiest exist
before we can do anything else.

So…
I love books.
And in this series I wanted to do one thing…
put down the information,
AND HOW I TEACH IT.

That is the big difference between this series of books
and the old matrixing video courses
and even the original martial arts books.

Mind you,
the information in the old stuff is still the best,
and it includes a tremendous amount of material
that space forbids me from including in the new books.

But the main thrust is
HOW I TEACH IT.

It is easy to do the martial arts,
you just monkey see monkey do,
but then it takes decades for the information to seep through,
the real reasons.

It is hard to teach the exact reasons why,
to give all the drills,
to outline the reasons for the drills,
how they work and interchange,
and so on.

I hope this answers that simple question:
what is the difference between,
say,
Matrix Karate (and a few other courses)
and the PMAI.

And,
that said,
the series of books I am working on
includes how to teach all my material.
The next book is

Profesional Karate Instructor.

I’m half done,
another month or two,
and we’ll have the complete step by step,
with all the reasons why,
as to how to teach Karate.
And,
I have books on Gung Fu,
Tai Chi,
and Monkey Boxing,
all planned out.

Actually,
interestingly enough,
I have two other books,
one done and the other almost done.

The first book I did was years ago,
and it is
Matrixing: The Master Text.
That one is being set up for actual book publication right now.

The other book is the complete works of Neutronics.

The four basic books
The Neutronic Viewpoint, Prologue, 24 Principles, and Neutronics,
all in one massive volume.

So I’ve got a lot of work to do.
But I feel it is imperative.

Let me say something,
don’t mean to offend anybody,
we are all at different points of evolution,
but I get emails every once in a while
where people say:

I need to watch it on video.
I don’t understand what people say in words,
but if I can see it…

I am glad they are able to Monkey See Monkey Do,
but the core here is information,
and information is best shared by reading,
not by seeing.

Imagine seeing Buddha meditate,
would you understand what he is doing?
Nah.
You’d just see some chubby half asleep.
And that is the reality when you get to actually teaching the martial arts.
To understand the real martial arts,
you have to understand the concepts.
You can get some of that understanding from watching vids,
but not all.
For complete understanding you have to be able to understand the written word,
you have to be able to churn concepts in your cranium.

So,
I repeat,
I love writing.
and that’s why everything I’ve done,
has to be set don in books,
and not just from the simplistic how to do,
but from he viewpoint of how to teach.

Okey, Dokely,
thanks of putting up with my rant,
I’ll get back to the basic smash and trash,
the beat and defeat,
of the martial arts next newsletter.

Have a great work out!

Al

Finding the Perfect Martial Art

Finding the Perfect Martial Art

May you have Perfect Art
in your Perfect Work Out!

Perfection.
Interesting concept.
After you read this newsletter
it will be easy to attain.
If you can count every blade of grass in the field.

Perfection means
free from flaw or defect.

Most people don’t even know what a flaw or defect is in the martial arts.
They hit and focus on how hard they hit.
Or they box and exult when they make a good punch.

These things are not even close.

When I was doing Aikido
way back when
the instructor said an interesting thing.

The perfect circle has no corners.

Hmmm.
The context he was talking about,
the technique we were involved in,
was a simple shoulder roll.

We would roll,
following instructions as best we could
and we would hit a hip,
or flop a foot at the end,
or find any of a thousand other ‘corners.’

So we worked and we worked until our rolls were silent.
A silent roll is a perfect roll.

Interesting concept.

But how do you apply that to the rest of the martial arts?

In aikido it is easy,
if you have impact with your partner
while doing a technique,
you knock him out of harmony,
you knock him out of the perfect arc of the technique,
instead of merging with his lunch,
you nudge it out of true
and the technique fails.
The technique has corners.

And,
you can apply the concept of silence to this,
a silent technique has no flesh slapping,
no bones knocking,
no collisions,
either with each other or the floor.

But that’s aikido.
How do you apply this technique to other arts?

You look for silence.
Don’t slap the feet on the floor.

Don’t ‘collide with an arm when blocking,
rather cut it effortlessly.
You are silent…he goes ow!

Now,
obviously,
there are times when you will make sound.
Say you hit the floor with your foot to supercharge a technique.
There is sound there.
But is the sound of the foot hitting the floor the only sound?

Is the sound of the kiai,
when you deliver a punch,
the only sound?

Does your fist hit and create sound?
But sound is excess energy
thrown out from a technique that isn’t truly pure.

Can you see where I’m going with this?

The interesting thing is trying to move with no sound.
I sometimes work out late at night,
everybody asleep,
and I try to work out with no sound
except those that are part of the technique.

When you can punch somebody with no sound
the impact is pure,
the transference of weight from one body to another
is pure.

So think about it.
I wouldn’t worry too much about it in class,
it’s one of those work on it…in silence.
By yourself,
exploring how little you can do
to do a lot.

Anyway,
probably the best art
for learning to create silence in your technique is Tai Chi Chuan.

Congrats to Another Master Instructor!

John Landry Promoted to Master Instructor!

Good morning!
And,
of course…
Work Out!

A great work out means a great you!
So get started now…
and don’t stop till you happen!

Okay!
A new Master Instructor!
Congrats to John M. Landry.

Here are some of the things he mentioned in his win…

This course is fantastic! I am a Ph.D. in Education and have practiced the martial arts since 1974. I have been teaching martial arts since 1989. I have been a law enforcement trainer and instructor since 1995.

The concepts of why students leave a school were very informative. Although I have never ran a commercial school, I have taught privately and pro bono at churches and the Salvation Army for many years and have wondered why so many students quit. Your course is causing me to think back and analyze.

The concept of Coordinated Body Movement (CBM) is awesome! I had never heard of that before this course but will use that practice in my own teaching and instruction of the martial arts from this point forward.

John then mentions several specifics of the course,
and continues with…

Overall, I am very impressed with this course and have learned a lot. I will utilize many of the concepts, principals, and methods of teaching that are presented in this master instructor course. I will also be purchasing additional courses to expand my knowledge of these principals.

Thank you Master Founder Case for the amount of work that you have done to put this course together and for your efforts in improving martial arts practice and instruction.

Thank you John,
and well done!

One thing I want to mention
is that John doesn’t waste time,
he got the course
went over it,
and wrote his win.

You don’t have to study for decades to become a real instructor,
you just have to know the right material.

Let’s say you want to drive a car
but you have never driven a car.
The gear shift is going to be a mystery,
what do those durn pedals do?
Why does the window go up and down when I press this button?

Then somebody gets in the car and
tells you to stop fiddling with that durned window.
Now,
press that peddle,
move the gear shift.
Let the pedal up slowly,
and slowly press on that other pedal.

In a short time you are driving.
Not a mystery.
How long did that take?
Five minutes.

And,
if you have any degree of time spent as a martial artist,
you have probably seen people teaching,
have taught people yourself,
and all you need is somebody to get in the car with you,
and tell you to stop fiddling with the window,
and tell you what the pedals are for.

Teaching can be that simple.
You just have to have the right information.

And what’s the alternative?
Do the same old same old teaching method
that has been done for thousands of years,
and watch your students leave in droves.

It’s been estimated that as many as 90% of the new students
leave within three months.
That means you have to spend ALL sorts of time
recruiting new students,

WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE TO!

You can keep the students you have for longer periods of time,
you can teach your students more martial arts!

Think about this one thing…
wouldn’t you like to keep students long enough
that you can teach them more than basics?
Wouldn’t you like to keep students long enough
that you can start teaching them the juicy stuff?

Guaranteed,
once you make this breakthrough,
once you start teaching the advanced stuff,
your world is going to open up!

So,
do the Master Instructor Course.
Get the correct information now!
Here’s the URL

http://www.monstermartialarts.com/Master_Instructor_Course.html

Now,
you may not have noticed,
but I’ve got a couple of courses offered for instant download.
Matrix Combat
Matrix Karate
are available,
Matrix Kung Fu should be done today or tomorrow,
and I will get the rest of the Matrix courses done
hopefully before I leave on
The Great Matrixing Tour.

And,
here’s something juicy…
for a while,
I am offering the courses at a discount.
Check out those pages,
and save a few bucks,
before they go back up to $30.

I probably won’t get to the other courses,
the non-matrixing courses,
at least not for a while.
So take advantage now.

And,
just to mention it again…
Hanakwanmass,
you don’t have to say that generic ‘happy holidays,’
and you don’t have to worry about offending some fool by saying ‘merry Xmas,’
now you can offend everybody equally and all at the same time!
Just say HanaKwanMass!

And don’t forget to get yourself
a Monster Martial Art course.
It’s the gift that you can use for years
and will change your life.

Start with the Master Instructor Course,

Now,
HanaKwanMass to you,
and have a great work out
