New Karate Black Belt Test!

Good morning!
Wonderful morning.
I just did a whole bunch of forms,
I feel like a million.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

Hey,
there’s lots of stuff happening,
so let me start with…
CONGRATS!
to Peter Carmody

Peter passed his Matrix Karate Black Belt test.

The test was done on video,
and Peter went through having to repeat the test,
doing all the corrections,
and making all the matrix karate material work.

And he made it look good!

Video testing is interesting.
You could probably film yourself on an iPhone,
don’t wear black against a black wall,
white against white,
and so on.

Have some sunlight,
or a few bulbs glowing.

You don’t need lots of space
as long as I can see your whole body.

Have a partner.

Be willing to fail once or twice,
at least.

And here’s the thing,
Matrix Karate is pretty darn unique.
You see,
most karate systems were developed for specific reasons,
bodyguarding,
the element of being grabbed,
having to deal with weapons,
etc.

Not saying you won’t encounter these things today,
you need some awareness of these things,
but the real factor is that we are a fist culture.
If you are in a fight
the usual weapons will be fists.
Then something that can be used as a cub,
then a knife,
etc.

But fists are the base of it all.
And,
if you can handle a fist,
it is just a short step to a knife,
if you have enough brains to adapt.

Anyway,
Matrix Karate is designed around the structure of the body,
it is a complete art,
taking into account all angles of attack and defense.
But it is SIMPLE!
Because the posing and the unnecessary techniques
have all been weeded out.

You have to learn about mistakes,
but the essence is in the logic
where one move leads to the next,
with no circus moves.

It’s funny,
I remember one of the first wins
I ever received,
this was about ten years ago.
The guy wrote that he had gone to a martial arts school,
and the first technique they taught him
was a cartwheel into a jump kick.
Not how to block and punch.
Not even the basic kicks,
but a jumping kick off a whole body contortion.

Can you see why matrixing was so desperately needed?
A little common sense?
And every system,
no matter how classical or developed,
benefits from the direct infusion of logic that matrixing provides.

Anyway,
well done to Peter,
and I recommend Matrix Karate and the Master Instructor Course
(you need both of them to test).
Whether you are accomplished and have a black belt,
whether you are a raw beginner,
whether you are just in the middle and need to get going,
Matrix Karate is the easiest,
the best,
the most efficient and completely rounded karate
on the planet.
Period.

A Great Birthday Win in the Martial Arts!

A Great Birthday Win

Hey Hey and Hi!
I’m just about to work out,
gonna do it right after writing this.
So when you finish reading,
make sure you work out, too.

master yoga

martial arts

Be silent, my friend, and hear yourself think…

I received a great win,
and I want to share it.
Then I’ve got something to ask you.
Here’s the win…

Hey Al!
First off: all the technical stuff (downloads and video access) worked perfectly.  Thank you very much for your (professional and courteous) concern.
I want to apologize for the delay in my response. I saw your email, and wanted to be sure to give you an honest response, so I decided to check all the downloads first. And then, while I was waiting on the other downloads, I thought I would read a little bit…
Now, three days later, I’ve read everything, and I’ve gone back to your site to read about all the courses you have available.  Why?  Because, put simply:
After 24 years of Martial Arts training (including instructor certification in three different arts and several years of teaching professionally in both a storefront and through seminars), Matrix Karate is THE SINGLE BEST PEDAGOGICAL METHOD (for the martial arts) I have EVER had the pleasure to encounter.
And you are welcome to quote me on that, or anything I have to say here, in whole or in part, should you find it convenient or beneficial to do so.
I was thoroughly shocked to find your work, because I have been trying to ‘get’ the True Way through studying many arts. I have found some pretty awesome things while comparing Karate to Wing Chun, practing Aikido weapons before Tai Chi play, and incorporating Qi Gung into my Krav Maga. But I felt there was something more, something deeper… And I believe I have found it in Matrixing!
Jeff

Thank you Jeff,
wins really make my day.
And,
this one hit me good,
because,
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

It’s always nice to get a little present, eh?

And, that brings us to the thing I was going to ask you.

Forgive me.

I ask this twice a year.
Birthday and Christmas.
Simply,
if I have messed up,
offended,
done something wrong,
said something that rubbed you the wrong way,
or ANYTHING,
forgive me.

It is important to live a clean life,
and this one thing
helps keep me clean.
Keeps the thoughts pure in my universe,
and keeps my martial arts popping.

So thank you.

And,
I guess I should say one other thing about this.

Many people walk through life
looking for people to tell them they are great.
I go through life looking for my mistakes.
You learn ten times more from a mistake,
than you do from a pat on the back.

Nothing wrong with a pat on the back.
I heartily recommend them,
but,
shove my face in a good mistake.
It will teach me much more,
and I will be better for it.

Okay,
Last thing.
It’s the beginning of summer.
Kids are getting out of school,
people are planning vacation,
so what martial art are you going to learn this summer?
The three month Karate course will work nicely.
Set that goal,
a Black Belt by september,
plan out a daily work out,
a couple of hours will do well,
and then make that goal happen.

Look,
you see that PX90 thing on TV,
three months to a totally changed body.
And the military takes people
and totally changes them in 3 – 4 months,
so why the heck can’t you learn something like Karate?
Or kung fu or whatever?
In three months!
It will not only change your body,
make a completely different you,
give you the ability to self defend,
but it will give you
an accomplishment of knowledge
like nothing else on the planet.
Being a black belt
is simply the best knowledge you can have.
It is the best thing you can be.

So,
why not?
What the heck else you got going?
Eh?

Okay, Here’s the address…

Now,
go out and have a great work out!

Monster Martial arts goes to Instant Download!

Martial Arts Courses

Save the trees and the oil wells! Instead of putting martial arts courses on disks, Monster Martial Arts is now going into the instant download business.

Monster Martial Arts, home of the incredibly popular matrixing technology, is undergoing a transition. Instead of waiting for two or three days, and that’s if the post office is happy, customers will be able to receive their martial arts courses within minutes. Maybe less than a minute.

Of course, if a martial artist wants his course on a disk, that option is always open. It costs a couple of bucks more, but that is only reasonable, considering postage and handling, which costs have been going up steadily.

And, the customer is allowed to copy the video to his disk, and to make a CD or DVD of the course, or even to print out the instruction manuals on paper.

Videos come in mpeg4, which is the industry standard. Instruction manuals come in PDF. Again, the industry standard.

Courses include such gems as Matrix Karate, Five Army Tai Chi Chuan, the original ‘how to Create Your Own Art’ course, and many more.

The intent of Monster Martial Arts is to revolutionize the martial arts by making them more logical, and therefore easier to learn, and more efficient to use.

 

Monster Martial Arts Goes Instant Download!

Monster Martial Arts has begun offering several of their courses as instant downloads.

Monster, as most people know, offers the Matrixing courses of Al Case. Matrixing is the first actual science of martial arts, and is literally sweeping the globe. Monster reports sales throughout Europe, across the mideast, and even Asia. That Asia, the home of kung fu, recognizes the world’s first martial science, speaks highly of Matrixing.

There are several pros and cons concerning instant downloads.

On the pro side, one doesn’t have to wait. Literally one minute after making an order, a customer can be reading the manuals and viewing the videos.

Also, for the ecologically conscious, trees are being saved (no paper), as are oil wells (no disks).

While the Monster products are copyrighted, all customers are given permission to place one copy of any course they order on their computer, and to make a disk copy of the videos, and a paper copy of the instruction manuals.

So far, the first four courses, Matrix Karate, Matric Kung Fu, Matrix Aikido, and the Master instructor course, are available for instant download. Other courses will be made available in the coming weeks.

On the con side, the price of a disk copy is going up. Of course, since the government is taxing higher and postal fees are going up, and the general inflation of currency, this had to happen. But going digital has enabled the company to keep low prices, and even to offer (for the next few weeks) a five dollar discount on the digital products. Monster has stated that if there is enough business, the discounts could continue.

Al Case, discoverer of Matrixing and the author of the Matrix Martial Arts instructional series, is a prolific author. A former writer for such magazines as Inside Kung Fu, Black Belt, and others, he has written over 2,000,000 words on the martial arts. This includes over 90 individual works, including novels, books of poetry, instructional manuals, and more.

People interested in learning a scientific and logical martial art should go to MonsterMartialArts.com and peruse. Guaranteed, in a world gone violent, these quick and efficient courses are the best way to learn effective martial arts in the world.

Martial Art Testing by Video.

Martial Art Testing Can be Quick and Easy!

I really need to write a page on Martial Art Testing by video, but let me sum it up real quick here.

martial art testing

Martial Art Testing by video is the latest rage.

You need to get a copy of the course (art) you are testing in, and a copy of the Master Instructor Course. All corrections will be based on these two courses. No hidden data or nasty surprises.

You need to send a video of yourself doing the forms and applications of the art you are testing in. First video is free, additional videos I charge twenty bucks.

The fastest I ever had anybody do was two videos. I don’t think it would take more than three or four videos, however.

I look for your ability to make it work. I correct you according to the six points listed in the Master Instructor Course, or on the seven things necessary for perfect form listed, again, int eh master instructor course. That, and knowing the moves from your art, is what it is all about.

I send you a certificate, I don’t send a belt. It is up to you to find the belt that fits you.

Martial Art testing by video is a concept whose time has come. People are tired of the time and gas and other things necessary to attending a martial arts school.

Mind you, I still think schools are cool, and you should definitely find as many work out partners as you can. But, society is changing, the internet is the thing, and even martial arts testing can be done through it.

If somebody had asked me, even ten years ago, whether this would be possible, I would have said no. But now? Heck. It’s probable.

Take a look at http://www.monstermartialarts.com/You_Can_Get_a_Black_Belt_Online%21.html

It will give you ALL sorts of information concerning this, and even a case history of one fellow who did it.
