Learn Aikido in Two Hours!

Learn Aikido by Going to the Concept

People think I’m scamming them when they read this learn Aikido at home in 2 hours thing, but let me tell you exactly what I’m doing.

First, I don’t teach you a thousand aiki techniques in a couple of hours, I teach you the One Concept behind it all.

2 DVDs and a CD, 90 minutes of video, and an instruction book.

No, I am not talking about ‘harmony.’ That’s a concept, but it’s a philosophy.

I teach the actual physical ‘One Thing’ that people are doing when they do this incredible martial art.

I show you how to do this one thing not by dry classroom talk, but by teaching four guys and letting you watch. During the course of one 90 minute video you will see these four guys learn. You will see them progress from move to move. You will see them going, ‘Oh! That works!” And then moving on to more and more moves. Intuitively, naturally.

That’s the power of The One Concept.

Now, the dry classroom stuff comes in the form of one simple learn aikido PDF. It’s about 40 pages, and it tells you how to break down the body, how to do the one thing to every part of the body. And it has illustrations detailing exactly what has been done.

The end result is that these four guys know enough aikido to practice on their own, to plug into any other martial art that happen to know.

Furthermore, and most important, it is workable in combat. It is EXTREMELY easy to apply this One Concept.

Whether you’re into the martial arts or not, I want you to remember this simple datum: if it is easy to understand, and easy to apply, it will be easy to learn, easy to use, and HARD to forget.

That is simple truth. It is behind Matrix Aikido and all the other martial arts courses I teach; it is a truth of this world.

Okay, hope to see you on the video, and have a great work out,

The Inertia of Ignorance and Learning Kung Fu

Learning Kung Fu is Hard When You Have to Overcome Yourself!

I should say the odd thing about teaching human beings, not just teaching kung fu or karate to some fellow. But the fact is…people refuse to accept information.

Let’s say you’re teaching some fellow Kung Fu. You can say something like ‘twisting the wrist on impact is dangerous. The joint is unstable upon impact.’

Now, this is a big deal, actually, can result in damage, but so many systems use the twisting wrist to teach beginning students…but, they don’t teach the white belts why, or how to transition the technique to a more stable punch.

You see, the wrist is unstable, but it teaches people how to focus their power. Once they learn how to focus their punches, they need to learn how to snap a vertical punch, what is called a ‘sun’ punch, or some other variation. But when you tell them that, the mind shutters.

They shake their head, and continue on their path, and it is as if you never spoke.

It’s not just karate or kung fu, it’s deeper, it goes to the person’s ability to listen, to actually process information.

That is, incidentally, why the martial arts are so vital to learn. Somebody disagrees, and you can show them on the dojo floor. You can make them open up their ears.

But, that doesn’t cure the person of his problem of not being able to listen. Even somebody who has studied the martial arts for decades has this problem. Here is the  thing they will actually think when you tell them something.

‘Oh, we have that in our kung fu style.’ Or Karate style, or whatever.

They don’t say it, they just get this smug look. But the truth is this: yes, they had it in their kung fu style, every system has everything, if you look far enough, BUT…they were not aware of it before you spoke of it.

This problem, incidentally, I have given a label…‘The Inertia of Ignorance.’

Simply, people won’t let go of their ignorance. They protect it; they are not willing to admit it because, darn it, they think it will make them look like they aren’t smart!

But holding on to your ignorance is what is not smart. If you don’t admit your were ignorant of something, then you can’t learn: your protection of your image as somebody who is wise and knowledgable stops you from learning .

Do you understand what I am saying?

Now, go ahead and peruse Monster Martial Arts. Hopefully, what you have read here has removed you from that attitude, and opened your cranium to the influx of new ideas. Because, I guarantee…the stuff you find on Monster, this Matrixing science, has never been seen before. It is brand new information, not written of by Bruce Lee, nor recorded in Ninja scrolls, not anything.

Brand spanking New, and that makes it very difficult for people who are more concerned with their image of themselves than their desire to learn kung fu, or any other martial art.

A Weird Mix of Aikido Versus Karate Proves Pretty Sane

You know, one of the weirdest thing I ever did was this Aikido versus Karate thing.

I know, the two arts don’t fit together, but I had studied both, and I was looking pretty hard, and I came up with the idea of doing a forward roll (or a backward roll) into and out of each position of every form in Karate.

So instead of stepping to the side and doing a low block, which is the first movement of Pinan One (Heian One), I dove into a shoulder roll and came up to the low block. And, I quickly found out that doing a back roll was much better.

But, then what is the situation you’re preparing for? Do you want to charge in, or back off? So I had to practice both ways.

Then, do a shoulder roll into the next movement. And I began doing all my forms, rolling forward and back, in into and out of, each position.

Man, it was a work out and a half. I was drenched, my shoulders were bruised as I was a beginner and hadn’t found that perfect circle that is necessary for the perfect roll.

So give it a try. Any art or any style can be adapted to to this weird Aikido versus Karate training drill. Guaranteed, you’re going to have a ball, or at least be one.

Check out Matrix Aikido. It’s an incredibly fast way of learning some real functional and combat ready Aikido. It’s at Monster Martial Arts.

 

New Aikido System Used to Teach Real Combat Techniques!

I encourage people to take my systems and share the wealth. They get to learn by teaching, and they even make a few bucks. This guy used my Matrix Aikido program and had great success. We are talking about a workable Aikido here, and it is extremely combat capable. Here’s the win.

“I conducted a Matrix Aikido training class for a Security Team at a local manufacturing plant. I tailored the training according to their Use Of Force policy. As you know they need control and takedown skills. The class went so smoothly. The participants learned very quickly. By the end of the class you could see techniques of Monkey Boxing coming through. They were also able to create their own techniques. There was one female officer in the class who asked to become my private student. She was throwing, locking and taking down guys twice her size. The Security Supervisor wants me to come back and with more participants! I’ll keep you posted.”

What’s interesting is that the system itself is presented in a seminar I did. You get to see hundreds of techniques in an hour an a half, and these techniques are created on the spot to fit a situation. Very creative.

You also get a book which tells you exactly how to reconstruct Aikido so it becomes lean and logical and quick to learn.
