You, too, Can Become a Legend of Kung Fu!

SECRETS OF KUNG FU STRENGTH DISCOVERED!

I am not referring to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, or any of the other martial art cinema stars when I refer to legends of kung fu. I am talking about those mystical feats that all people are in awe of, and wish they could do.

karate style brown belt learnOne of the first legends I ever came across was a fellow who could jump 6 to 10 feet high. He could stand on the street and jump to rooftop. The way to learn how to do this was to dig a hole 1 foot deep and practice jumping out of it for an hour every day, after a month you add a few inches, another month a few more inches, after a few years you’re down to 6 feet, 7 feet, 10 feet, And then you can jump right to the roof of the house. Whoa!

Another legend of kung fu I came across, more dangerous, was a fellow who would stab himself first with a pen and a bigger pan finally a small knife and a bigger night, And eventually he would be able to take withstand the strike of swords. Whoa!

My favorite of these legends, is actually more of an American legend. It was born out of people’s desire to have great strength. What you do is you lift a new born calf on your shoulders. And the next day you lift it again. And the next and the next. And by time a year is past you are able to lift a 1000 pounds. Whoa!

Now I love these legends, but let’s face it if they were that easy everybody would be doing them. So really, These are the comic book variations of internet scams.

The only real way to do kung fu is to get yourself a good martial arts course and do it. No tricks no gimmicks, just good hard work, and a belief in yourself that you can accomplish great things in your life.

Probably the best kung fu course out there, is the Shaolin butterfly. It is based on fut ga Shaolin hung fu, but it uses Western logic to make the study faster and more efficient.

Learn Rattlesnake Kung Fu at a Martial Arts Retreat!

Rattlesnake Kung fu

Greetings to the Faithful!
We are moving stuff up to Monkeyland this week.
Lot of fun.
12 hour work day fun!
Believe me,
it’s a relief to get back on the typer and send out a message.

That said, the message today is…rattlesnakes!
We’re up at Monkeyland,
talking to the former owner,
and now the truth comes out.
When he was selling the property it was,
‘oh, we never see snakes around here.’
Now that the property is sold he says,
‘Had a rattlesnake crawl in the house last week.
Only one button on the tail,
couldn’t hardly hear the fellow.
The young uns are the deadliest, you know.
They latch on and they don’t know how to let go,
just keep right on pumping that poison into you.

My wife is turning white.

I’m laughing.
This is California.
rattlesnakes are old hat to me.
Heck,
I should make up a rattlesnake kung fu style.
Specialize in the ‘one button strike,’
have some real fun.

I used to work at a school,
lots of kids at places like that,
and I was the official rattlesnake killer.
Some kid would hear a buzzing,
they’d call me,
and I’d go kill the sucker.

Take a shovel and chop his head off.

Oh! How cruel!
Unless he happens to bite your child.
Then you thank me.

Anyway,
you have to chop the head off,
and don’t touch the fangs,
and bury the head DEEP.
Venom has a shelf life of 25 years.
My son got stung by a bee when he was two,
arm swole up like a water balloon.
Doctor said the bee likely landed on a dead rattlesnake,
picked up some venom.
So my son got bit by a dead rattlesnake thanks to a bee.

And, if snakes aren’t enough,
there’s bobcats and bears up there!

But the worst predator up there,
the one the former owner made his wife carry a gun everywhere for,
was the two legged kind.

Anyway,
it is fun,
I’m really happy because I don’t care a fig about
rattlesnakes or bobcats or bears (oh my!)
or even the really deadly two legged varmints.
I know martial arts.
And here is something interesting…
Do you think the original monks at the Shaolin Temple
didn’t have to deal with…
snakes,
tigers,
deadly bugs,
and all that sort of thing?

Heck!
How do you think they came up with their martial arts?
Maybe that tiger form is the result of a man
who had to kill a tiger with only a knife?

So,
come to Monkeyland,
and maybe you’ll have to fight off a bear (grin)
or tangle with a bobcat (he he)
or wake up to find a rattlesnake tangled in your bedroll. (outright laughter)

Look,
I’m kidding here,
chances are you won’t see anything like that,
but I just want to get the idea across,
the martial arts are used in life or death situations.
And life or death situations are definitely out of the comfort zone.
So put aside your ho hum same old same old life,
come dedicate yourself to a life and death art
where the only distractions are
having to eke out a living,
and putting up with a two legged varmint like me. (bent over, slap the thigh, guffaw).

You can sleep in a cargo container,
cook your food over an open fire,
work out in an open faced tin garage,
and it will be something you ALWAYS remember.

And,
who knows,
maybe you’ll like it enough to become a live in monk.
Rattlesnakes, bobcats and bears, (oh my!)

Oinkey dokely?
Fine and dandy?
See ya.
