How to Lose a Fight with Martial Arts!

How to Lose a Fight No Matter Though You Know Martial Arts

What an interesting idea,
how to lose a fight
though you know martial arts.

Yet it is done,
and big time.

know martial arts

Is this really the way to solve problems?

Oh, but before we get going let me say
Good morning
and happy work out!
One more day in work out paradise, eh?

Sorry, it’s impolite to start right in
without the greeting,
and the hint to work out.

So,
Robert E. Lee lost the civil war for the south,
on the military front,
because of one,
ONLY ONE,
error.

Lee was fighting the north to a standstill,
his lines of soldiers were brave and happy to be fighting the yanks.
His horse back raiders were some of the fiercest EVER seen.
Yet,
he made one mistake.

He invaded the north.

You see,
as long as he was fighting on home turf
he was winning.

He knew the land,
but,
more important,
the men were fighting for their homes.
They weren’t invading,
they weren’t trying to take what was somebody else’s away,
and they were winning.

When you look at the statistics of the war,
they really shouldn’t have been winning.
But they were.
Because they were fighting for their homes.

When Lee decided to try to take Washington,
even though it was to end the war,
he became an invader,
and it changed the whole mindset of his army.

Now,
the lesson we learn here is simple,
fight from your home ground.
Don’t go looking for trouble.
Fight for what is yours,
and not for what is somebody elses.

I was with somebody the other day,
and they got in an argument,
and they didn’t do too well.
They turned to me for help,
but I raised my hands and refused to enter into the argument.
Why?
Because my friend was wrong.
The whole premise of his argument made him an invader.
He started it.
The other person was defending his ‘home ground.’

Wouldn’t it be an interesting world if people refused to be invaders?

We were invaders during Viet Nam.
That, though we had the bravest soldiers in the world,
was a debacle.

On the other hand,
during the white man’s settling of America
we ran into the Indians.
The Indians actually kicked out butt much,
but they had one problem,
they didn’t believe they owned the land.
How can somebody own what is God’s?
Right?

But without this sense of ownership,
coupled with the fact that because of modern technology
the whites were able to breed like rabbits,
and the Indians lost.

Mind you,
we are paying for their loss to this day!
Guilt is thrown at us by all our victims.
Indians, blacks,
whoever we have conquered and abused,
throws guilt at us.
Interesting memory building up in our race, eh?

So leaving your home turf to beat somebody is to be an invader
and it has consequences.
And even beating somebody on your home turf has consequences.
Interesting, eh?

History is so full of examples of this phenomena,
and all its rich variables…makes history worth reading.

But what is more important is the relationship to the martial artist.

Your home ground is your soul.
It is your integrity.
And the integrity of your soul
is complemented and bolstered
by the integrity of your art.

Aikido has much integrity.
It holds to a central concept,
spreads love instead of the invader mentality.

Do Karate right,
and there is no first strike…
there is no invader mentality.

Do any martial art right
and you become a whole,
more complete person.

Okay,
end of history lesson,
hopefully I have made it personal,
and encouraged you to look at Matrix Aikido,
Matrix Aikido holds to a central concept,
but,
more important,
it does this with a logic
that makes the art easier to understand.
Easier to use in combat.
Easier to plug into ANY other martial art.

Think about it,
you know Karate,
and,
suddenly,
just because you took the Matrix Aikido course,
you are able to translate ANY karate technique
into a flowing grab art.

How To Win A Fight With Martial Arts

Win With Martial Arts!

Most people don’t have a real grasp of the exact martial arts strategy of how to win a fight. This is an arena of unarmed conflict that has served generations of martial arts students, even enabled peasants to defeat sword wielding samurai, and yet it is poorly understood. The point of this article is to discuss the strategy you need to utilize in order to win any physical conflict, and this method can be used by practitioners of any art, including jujitsu, Shaolin, Wing Chun, etc.

bruce lee imageThe first thing you need to do, if you’re going to prevail in a fight, is establish the range. This means more than just deciding whether the fight is to be fought at a certain distance. This means arranging the fight so that no matter what distance you are at, you are using weapons of your choice, and in a position to collapse the distance and handle him as you wish.

To do this you should assume a position, then shuffle forward until you step on the line between you and your opponent. This is an invisible line at which you invade his space, and he will noticeably flinch, or step back, or make some other motion when you step on that line. Once you have established this distance, you must do the things I am going to list in the following paragraphs, all while edging slightly forward and trying to get into his territory without him reacting.

Once you are controlling the range, you must establish the side you are going to attack on. Most martial artists stand with their right side back, but it doesn’t matter which side they choose. And, to be honest, it’s not really important which side you use.

Once you have each chosen a side to work with, you should begin a subtle circling motion, you should be moving to his open side, which will expose the front of his body, and removes you from the wedge of his body. Shifting in slowly, with an occasional jerk or two to make think he isn’t falling for it, you slide into his open space with the wedge of your body, this gives you more frontal area to strike and and more weapons to strike with, and he will have less frontal area and be facing more weapons.

You are now presenting him with two problems, as you are moving into his space with both forward and sideways motions. Moving like this, hold up your hands so that your opponent has to either go through them, or around them. So either hold them closer together, so that he thinks he can push around and through, or make them wider so that he will be forced to move through the center.

These three things, forward, sideways, and holding the fists wider or narrower, make an opponent easier to predict, and easier to fight. In a short time he will begin to believe he can take advantage of the opening he thinks he sees, and you are about to get a real opportunity to show him some hard knocks. The forward and back encroaching move, the circular side movement, when he finally attacks you will be moving out of his range even as he attacks, but you are going to have to be fast if you wish to take advantage.

Being quick means you have to see it coming, you have to set up the situation, and cause him to think he can get away with it. You see, a fighter won’t attack unless he thinks he can win. So you have to make him think he has the advantage, and then you have to time his totally predictable strike if you want to win the fight with martial arts.

The Martial Arts First Rule of Motion

Good morning…
and great work out!
Oh,
and BTW
Hanakwanmass!

For those of you who don’t know…
Hanakwanmass is
Hannakah…Kwanza…Christmas.
It’s my way of wishing well to all
without being politically correct.
Of course,
my real way of wishing well
is to say…
work out!

Okey dokey,
let’s talk martial arts.

The general strategy of motion is this:

if he moves don’t move,
if he stops then move.

The actuality of this concept is this:

if he is in motion
match his motion,
which causes a relative no motion
between you.

And,
If he is stopped,
he is getting set to launch,
so get out of the way
by moving,
by creating motion.

And,
on a finer level,
if he is stopped,
a study of angulation
(those small shifts to the side)
will create an opening
without him being aware of it.

You know,
all this is nothing more than an outgrowth
from the first neutronic principle.
“For something to be true
the opposite must also be true.”

the first manifestation of this principle is:
‘If the force is greater flow it,
if the flow is greater force it.’

The ‘Law of Motion’ I stated first,
is actually a third manifestation.

But all three principles are the same thing,
nothing more than extensions of the basic concept
that is the yin yang.

See,
people think the yin yang is the sun and the moon,
which is myth.
or male and female,
which is more myth.
And so on.

But the yin yang is a solid representation of motion.
And that’s all the universe is: motion.
It is through your analysis of motion
that you will understand the universe,
understand conflict,
and understand how to deal with a punch in the face.

I am always a bit taken aback
when talking to some martial artist
who has spent his years studying forms,
and doesn’t know anything about yin and yang
and motion
For he has studied a universe of motion
without a notion
of what is really going on.
The good news is that it only takes a few words
to open the doors,
light the light,
and wake him up.

And,
you knew I was going to get to it…
it starts with Matrixing.
Those silly little tables
that explore the potentials of motion
open up the potentials of motion
within the mind.

Move the body…
and you move the mind…
and, finally
the mind moves the body.

But who moves the mind?
Just keep working out,
and keep Matrixing,
and you’ll find out.

Now,
a couple of quick things.
If you have trouble with paypal,
let me know.
They aren’t always sending me notifications of orders.
So,
if you order a course
and I don’t send you an thank you email
within a few hours,
let me know.
Paypal has messed up,
and I need to go after them.

Second,
the lines at the post office are
officially out the door
down the block,
and around the corner.
don’t worry,
I will send your order within 24 as usual,
but,
be patient
and if the mail doesn’t arrive,
just let me know,
we’ll straighten it out.

And,
I think that’s about it,
except for…
HANAKWANMASS!

Have a great work out.
Al

The basic Matrixing tables begin
with Matrix Karate.
They can be used for any art.
