I could go into your parents wanting to be your friend instead of taking responsibility.
Or I could talk about how school is designed by government to make you a stupid but more compliant citizen.
I could go into drugs or electronics or any number of things.
But the fact is that 98% of the people on this planet are stupid.
To be precise: they are dreaming that they are awake.
Instead, I would like to tell you the solution, or how to wake up, how to make the dream give way to reality.
First, get rid of the GMOs, cigarettes, Parma prescriptions, food additives, vaping, obsession with playing a stupid video game, and so on.
Second, begin a program for putting your body into good shape. Being overweight, while touted as ‘sexy’ by ad executives who know better, is unhealthy and puts you at risk.
Start riding a bike, join a dance class, learn yoga, or, my favorite, start doing the martial arts.
Third, throw the F-bomb TV out the stinking window!
You are not watching programming, you are being programmed.
Fourth, start reading, look for things that will undo that terrible (but oh so veddy expensive) education the government gave you.
What the heck is matrixing?
Matrixing is logic, pure and simple.
It is taking all the factors, comparing them, and boiling them down to the essential concept.
I use matrixing, I developed matrixing, in the martial arts.
Consider your garage, a hopeless mess. You couldn’t find a lawnmower in there if somebody ran it over your toes. That garage is like your mind. And your mind, because of drugs, education, and all the stuff I’ve just told you, is an F-bomb mess.
Consider a bookshelf, the one in your room. Everything is thrown on it. Shirts, ties, plants, even a book or two. Although the books are upside down and shoved into a corner. Heck, there’s even a cat turd on the top shelf!
Consider your mind, everybody tells you what to think, education fills you with weird concepts, and TV lies to you as a matter of perverted honor.
And you buy it all!
So, do what I said earlier. Get rid of drugs, electronics, your bad education, and everything else that has contributed to the mess of your mind.
But the question, really, is how do you get rid of it.
My solution was to do martial arts. They put my body in shape, put me in control, and started the procedure of cleaning out my brain, my mind, my spirit, whatever you want to call that clusterF-bomb you call a mind.
Now, there is still a problem.
You can do karate, or any martial art, and get in good shape, and even be thinking at a halfway decent rate, but there is still a mess.
You see, the martial arts are a put together, a combination of techniques, a build up of what everybody thinks is right and works.
Do you honestly think the martial arts are immune to the BS I listed above?
They have been put together by raving lunatics! People with vested interest! Religious wackos! Anybody who can beat somebody else up thinks they are smart.
They never heard that ‘Might doesn’t make right!’
So you figure out this matrixing thing.
You put the martial arts techniques in order.
As you put the martial arts in order you start to put your mind in order.
You start being able to think, to make correct decisions not based on all that crap that everybody and their uncle has pushed down into your mind.
Your mind becomes quick and fast, lean and mean, and you are able to think, and…to observe reality.
You look around and ask yourself (I kid you not) why is everybody so stupid?
But now you know.
And now you can go find matrixing, and do it, or you can stay asleep.
Well done and congrats to the latest Master Instructor!
Hello Mr. Al
I don’t know from where to begin with. I read the course and I have watched the videos. They changed most things I had in my mind about martial arts. Generally I practice on combat systems. So, I figured that most of combat systems just get the surface of martial arts. I already applied some things, mostly on my stances and I show great improvements which need practice to be established. I thought all attacks and defenses I know and found out many mistakes. I’ m thinking correcting all my curriculum from the begging.
I liked your approach of the idea of energy because I have studied philosophy and metaphysics, but your approach made it more practical in my mind.
My win is that I show a depth in martial arts that I was feeling but couldn’t see. It is like you show that to me and I am very grateful about this. Now I have much material to work on in order to adjust on my martial arts.
About life I have the same approach with you considering martial arts. “Well, Art is beauty. It is harmony. It is when the elements of the universe are arranged in a pleasing pattern. Thus, the dawn can be great art. And, the greatest artist is merely that individual who can arrange the greatest (most significant) number of elements in the most beautiful pattern.” The idea is that I want to put this in a combat system.
I will keep practicing what I learned, thank you very much.
Well done Emman,
and thank you.
for the information of all,
Emman is from Greece and plans to open a school soon.
Armed with the right data,
Emman is going to be a success.
You can just feel it.
What I am particular struck with,
in his win,
is his last paragraph about beauty and harmony
and arranging the most elements in a beautiful pattern.
The purpose of the Master instructor course
is to give people enough information so that they can do this,
take all their data and rework it into a logic and profound pattern,
to break out of old patterns and make everything work
The Martial Arts Concept That Will Get You Killed!
Behold the Poser!
I figured out the Poser like this:
I was an instructor in Kenpo.
Thought I was the deadliest SOB walking.
Then I met a kid who showed me some stuff.
Curious, I let him introduce me to his brother.
His brother happened to be a Hell’s Angel.
His brother also happened to know something of Kenpo.
“What would you do for this attack?”
He grabbed my tee shirt with two fists.
I was shocked,
in spite of my training I didn’t know what to do.
“Why don’t you try ‘Flapping Wing?’
My eyes were round,
that was one of my techniques.
I taught it regularly.
Surely I could make that work!
So I locked his hands in place,
brought a forearm up to break his elbows.
He lowered his elbows,
which hurt my forearm.
I brought my forearm around in a circle.
I smashed down on his radial nerves,
which should have paralyzed his arms,
and started to chop him in the throat.
He threw me through a wall.
All the way through it.
Then he told me to grab his shirt.
I did so.
And he punched me…through the wall.
in thirty seconds,
I went through a wall.
The night then became one of the most fascinating
question and answer period,
and I started to learn about the true art.
And I started to learn about posers.
The actual definition for a Poser technique is:
‘when the attacker has to not do something
so the defender can make the technique work.’
My kenpo consisted of wide circles and slapping hands,
his technique consisted of straight punches and brute force.
this isn’t to downgrade Kenpo.
There are many arts which make the circling of the arms work,
with a little bit of analysis,
can also be made to work.
Kenpo is not bad,
but there is a wide variance of ability
in the people who teach the art.
On the beginning levels of the martial arts
one learns how to streamline the straight line,
how to make it work.
On later levels one learns circles and how to make them work.
Blinding Steel (Monkey Boxing),
I recommend that one learn the beginning levels
so that one learns how to generate power properly.
That power can then be used on later levels,
later levels which do not have those types of power building drills.
a Poser can be a person who is a fake personality,
acts like he is something when he isn’t.
in the martial arts a Poser refers to a technique
that takes too long,
doesn’t fit in with concepts of power,
is often out of place
(could work if learned later on when certain principles of power have been learned)
And so on.
Matrix Karate is the ONLY course that gives you techniques in the right order,
and that knowledge will help you discover the Posers in your own art,
and fix your own art.
You Can Walk Through a War Zone with Martial Arts and Never Fight!
One of the things I realized, after 22 years in the martial arts, which was almost 30 years ago, was that there must be a thought before there can be an action.
Now, while you’re grokking that, let me take it to the logical conclusion: a fight cannot occur unless you make the decision that it can so occur.
Lots of people are going to argue with this, but that is simply because they don’t see thought before action, and so can’t understand what I am saying. They have invested too much time in fighting, and not enough time in the martial arts.
I have, just for the heck of it, walked through a riot without receiving a ding. Nor even a curse word, Nor even a bad look. I did this shortly after the Rodney King riots.
I was simply curious concerning what had happened, but more important, I was curious about my ability to walk through a ‘war zone’ without being attacked.
So I drove down to South Central Los Angeles, sauntered across Normandy and Florence (the flashpoint of the riots), drove around, got out and examined businesses that had been destroyed and so on.
Simply, I hadn’t made the decision to get in a fight.
Even if I had run into an insane person…I was safe. An insane person, you see, can’t have an effective thought (before an action). They can’t plan. Period. That is part of their insanity.
And, to tell the truth, I had played with this concept before this occurrence.
Once, in the army, I had a fellow stand in front of me, totally enraged, and tell me he was going to beat the holy you know what out of me.
I said, “No thanks,” and watched him.
He didn’t hit me, he just got madder, and louder, and finally some other fellow in the barracks got pissed at the noise and came over and fought him. While they were rolling around on the floor I went to the movies.
Now, this brings us to the most important point of this little epistle. How do you reach the point of being able to make a decision, or not make a decision, concerning people beating you up?
People who practice fighting, and think that that is martial arts, don’t see the thought before the action. They just get mad (frustrated) when I say things like what I have said here.
People who practice the martial arts, which includes forms (concepts) techniques (plans) and freestyle (translating perfection into chaos), can reach the point of being able to see the thought before the action. They usually don’t, however, because though their art is classical, it is random. Not logical. It hasn’t been matrixed.
So the classicists who achieve this ability of being able to see the thought before an action are few and far between. They usually end up being virtually worshipped. If they make the decision to get worshipped. Usually they prefer to live a quiet life. It is just so much more efficient and pleasurable.
When you matrix your art you put it in logical order.
Never been done in any martial art in the history of the world.
A few people have pushed concepts, and that tends to align an art, and that gives people a chance to break through. But the pushing of the concept usually dies with the founder, and the art becomes a legend, and the movements of the art become rote, then confused, then dispersed.
That’s just the way it is. Logic brings one to a pinnacle, but without the concept of logic (which is different than the concepts in the martial arts) the art descends, and usually pretty rapidly. It is not uncommon to see an art self destruct within a generation of the death of the founder.
So this matrixing thing, this logic, is of crucial importance.
It will not only align your art, make it logical and intuitive, but it will safeguard against the destruction of your art.
Watch, the simple drills and forms I developed through matrixing are going to be around forever. They can’t be improved on because they aren’t so much martial arts as a perfection of logic. People will discover them, do them, and find that, while they are an art unto themselves, and incredibly effective, the real joy is in seeing how the art one does, apart from Matrixing, suddenly rears its head and achieves the goals…and concepts…of the original founders.
And, the only other thing I have to say on this matter is this: it is important to learn an art solely so one can create one’s own art. If one doesn’t create their own art, they really haven’t learned the martial arts.
And all this, seeing the thought before the action, creating your own art, understanding the arts as one art, is only possible through learning the logic of matrixing.
Happy work out!
Who cares what day of the week it is!
Any day is perfect for a work out!
a black and white version of
The Professional Martial Arts Instructor
is coming out.
If you want a color copy at the low price, order it now.
let’s talk about smarts.
The martial arts are one of the few practices in the world
that actually result in higher intelligence.
Going to school doesn’t.
Going to school is a trick of how much you can memorize.
Not a lot of problem solving.
ask any college professor…
Does college teach you how to run a business?
Now that I’ve offended a whole heck of a lot of academicians,
let me tell you how the martial arts makes you smart.
Real intelligence is based on
how fast you can make connections.
Intuition is the fastest connection there is.
Martial Arts works on intuition.
today’s schools don’t even talk about intuition.
if they do,
it is some ‘study of the paranormal.’
A simple class in martial arts,
be it kenpo or karate or aikido or whatever,
teaches the individual to be intuitive.
You make decisions based on the moment,
not on memory.
Even the memory training done in the martial arts,
is for the purpose of eventually outgrowing the memorization
and doing the trick intuitively.
You can go to school for a thousand years,
and the hairs on tieback of your head
will never stand up
when somebody sneaks up behind you.
(This is not to say school is useless, it always helps to have a good and large database of information, which is what school provides)
A year in the martial arts,
and you’ll be spinning and working techniques,
when somebody even THINKS about sneaking up on you.
there is nothing more to be said.
The proof is in your martial arts class,
it is in you sticking to it.
I’ve said it before
and I’ll say it again,
you can get there faster,
you can get intuitive faster,
you can get decades worth of experience in a few months
if you just practice something like
It’s got the basic rules of matrixing,
it’s got the logic and common sense,
all in the right order.
Happy every day to you!
The work out you do today will be special.
Gonna really rock.
Now get started!
Got an interesting email the other day,
Michael S. had this nifty way of looking at things…
I was talking to a friend earlier and it got me thinking about a couple of things. I wanted to pass along what I came up with and see what you thought.
Basically, my idea is that techniques have three main categories in relation to each other.
If we say your good friend Joe Blow has a strong jab, you might teach him a cross. Those techniques are friendly, meaning they work together in a very natural way.
Then you teach him a kick so he’ll be able to play that range too. This kick is complementary, meaning it isn’t exactly friendly with the jab but it serves to round Joe out.
Then he goes home and gets on to Youtube and decides to pick up a kimura. He doesn’t know much about grappling, he hasn’t learned any takedowns. The kimura is lonely. A lonely technique is one that needs friends to be really effective and doesn’t have them. If Joe goes down to the local BJJ school and starts learning the basics then that kimura is going to have lots of friends.
It goes without saying that this isn’t some kind of weird dig at BJJ (I know you’ll pick that up but I want to add some clarity in case this email gets shared). If a dedicated Judoka picks up a superman punch one day, then it’s the same situation. He’ll have to develop his striking base before that punch gets to ever really be effective.
One other thing I’d like to clear up about this paradigm is that some techniques can be alone but not necessarily lonely. These will tend to be straightforward basic techniques. As a matter of course, the techniques most likely to be lonely are advanced or complex moves when someone does not have a good grasp of the basics.
And of course, have a great workout.
I like the idea of grouping techniques
as friendly and lonely.
It makes science more user friendly.
thanks for all the orders for the
Professional Martial Arts Instructor.
Remember, if you are out of states,
meaning foreign or even Canada,
you need to order the PDF.
Postage out of the 48 kills me.
here’s an interesting little phenomena…
Paypal insists on charging shipping for PDFs.
I have talked myself blue in the face,
but they make no sense.
Here’s their insanity.
I put 0 in the shipping and handling box.
They charge $4.
they say I have to change ALL my buttons
to fix one.
Are they crazy?
Why doesn’t $0 work?
They just keep repeating their insanity.
It’s a variation of
saying the same thing and hoping for a different answer.
people are getting charged $4 extra on PDF orders.
Regular book is okay,
I’ve shifted to Amazon for that.
I am now trying different things for the PDF,
and may be looking for a different company.
The problem is I would have to start on changing
hundreds of buttons.
I will try charging one penny,
if that doesn’t work,
I will try something else.
Just thought i’d let you know what is going on.
I’m working on book two of the series.
Give me a month,
should have something big and great coming along.
for those willing to confront
the PayPal insanity, (grin)
here’s the link
Hey! An EXCELLENT morning to you! And a great work out!
Gonna talk about Closed Combat Systems, or…CCS. But first…
You may have noticed that the site was down for a couple of days. My host server moved me to a newer computer, and lost my site. Couldn’t believe it. I kept calling them, even getting nasty, which is something I don’t do. They finally got it back up, but, man, I was actually irritated.
I don’t usually get angry, or even irritated because when things happen, that’s life. You solve it. You don’t let emotions get in the way. Anyway, it’s back up, so let’s talk about CCS, or ‘Closed Combat Systems.’
There used to be nothing but CCS in the martial arts. That’s because martial artists tended to be paranoid. Didn’t want to talk to the competition. So the growth of the arts was slow, and things tended to…here comes the word… ‘circuitize.’
To understand this word consider: a move in the martial arts is a series of small steps. A simple punch, for instance, consists of:
sink the foot, push with the leg turn the hip rotate the shoulder extend the arm
And, aside from these five basic points, there are ALL sorts of minor points, minor points that are ABSOLUTELY crucial to a good punch, to a REAL martial arts punch.
breathing to the tan tien, breathing as if into the strike, turning the wrist or not, focusing the eyes, focusing the energy, turning the limbs so that proper alignment is achieved, coursing energy the right way, and on and on for everybody part every motion every notion.
A good martial artist will be aware of ALL these things, and conduct them, just like an orchestra conductor conducts a 100 piece orchestra, and all in a split second.
To make this all happen the martial artist visualizes, and causes to come into being, a ‘circuit.’ That is, a sequence of awareness impulses that drive the nerves, muscles and bones of the body machine. And there is a lot more to it than that.
Now, some people think it is all ‘muscle memory.’ Muscle memory is a small part of it, and the term isn’t even accurate. For it is not the muscles that remember, it is the spirit setting up a circuit of awareness.
Setting up a ‘robot action,’ as it were.
The point behind all this silliness and significance is that one practices a move until it becomes intuitive. Until he doesn’t have to be aware of all the little pieces.
And one practices these moves until the individual aware pieces disappear and one is left with… intuition.
So one establishes a circuit just to make it disappear. One piece at a time, through endless practice, the circuit becomes an intuitive move. The circuit disappears. The student is left with himself, and is now n expert, on the way to becoming a master.
Now, the point of this is that… old arts, because they didn’t change, became heavily circuited. Changes occurred in small increments, and the whole art could absorb them.
Fast forward to the twentieth century. Books, magazines, internet. Tournaments every week, Dojos on every corner. The appearance of LARGE corporations! Heck, these corporations would even enlist people from OTHER schools to fill the demand as they expanded.
And… systems changed. Ed Parker went through multiple organizations, five different systems, hundreds and hundreds of schools, and he was just one of the thousands of people causing havoc to the CCS.
The CCS method broke down. The art changed. The age old method that caused intuition ceased functioning. And… the quality of black belt went down.
I know because I was there. I started martial arts in 1967, studied MANY different arts, wrote for the mags and saw TREMENDOUS evolution.
Now, let’s be honest, there were a few problems with the CCS. It wasn’t efficient, but it did work. But it was replaced by something less efficient.
People who put aside forms entirely and taught fighting. People who put tournaments above individual awareness. Vested interest aimed at slanting the art for making money. A nationalistic bent that caused SEVERE tweaking of styles. And, of course, the utterly despicable rise of politics. And so on.
So the CCS died. And that brings us to me.
Interestingly, I had a fellow who wrote me the other day, asked me what my purpose was. Purpose is an interesting thing. I am speaking, of course, of the purpose of one’s life. Why a person exists. Why one would choose to have boringness in this universe on this planet in this geography at this time.
We all have purpose.
I laughed when I was asked the question, and I responded.
‘To make a science of the martial arts.’ And, I further said, ‘I accomplished my purpose, now I’m just playing.’
And it’s true.
Look, let me give you a little perspective on me.
My father was an engineer. I grew up reading such mags as popular mechanics, popular science, all sorts of ‘how to do’ mags, and, a little bonus, my father was a golfer. So I read all these mags with the most fascinating pics. Pics of men with planes placed over the body to show how the hips moved to swing the club to drive the energy the analysis of the blade of the club on the dimple of the ball.
I applied this to the martial arts.
In fact, when I picked up my first martial arts book, (Super Karate Made Easy!) I was stunned at the lack of clarity. hundreds of drawings, showing moves and techniques, self defense situations, AND NOT ONE PIC SHOWED HOW IT WAS DONE! No planes through the body, no analysis of how the hips joined to the legs to the feet to sink the weight to provide torque to the shoulders, so the wrist could snap at the right time, and… the moment of impact.
THERE WAS NOTHING, NOTHING AT ALL, WRITTEN ABOUT HOW THE ART WORKED.
So there came my purpose, to put the ‘how to,’ the REAL, PHYSICS INSPIRED how to.
And, as my life passed I realized that I was obsessed with putting science into the martial arts. Something NOBODY had ever done.
Now, I succeeded. Got over 600 pages of testimonials letting me know that I succeeded. And I didn’t pursue these testimonials, they came out of the blue.
So I succeeded. I’m not famous, not rich, don’t care. Because money and fame is not the purpose of life. The purpose of life is to become competent in something, and to share that competence.
So I succeeded when I sold my first matrixing course. I succeeded because that fellow, whether he bought into my scheme of arts or not, was putting science into HIS OWN art.
And he was going to pass that science down for one simple reason: it was true. It worked, and you can’t argue with the universe. Only a fool would want to.
And, heck, people can disagree with me all they want about art. Art is subjective, it is the expression of the person, and every person is different, but… NOBODY has ever disagreed with matrixing. Matrixing is the logic, and it is an analysis of, and is based upon, cold, hard science.
Not the limited science of the colleges and western influence.
A science that includes such things as chi power, and all manner of ‘sixth sense’ phenomena.
So, now you know what CCS is, and, for what it’s worth, you understand what drove me, what inspired this obsession of mine, and how it all worked out.
But, of course, there are a few loose ends here.
The main being… what do you do to reinstate CCS. And that, interestingly enough, is where we come to matrixing.
With matrixing you go through certain evolutions.
First, you realize how to make your system work. You apply the principles, start to streamline your art, and therefore create your own CCS.
Be sure, you will learn 10Xs faster and more efficiently, heck, 1000Xs faster and more efficiently, if you create your art.
When you take apart the art you learned, be it Taekwondo, Aikido, or whatever form of Kung Fu… and put it back together, you are involved in a form of creation. You are the artist. You are no longer ‘monkey see monkey do.’ You are the one making something that is unique to you. Even though it is based upon other arts, it is unique to you.
Second, you start to create your own art. You finish aligning the systems you learned, and you start expressing yourself, creating an entirely different martial art than anything you’ve ever learned.
This is the ultimate stage of CCS.
Yet… you never close your mind to others. Matrixing won’t allow you to. You learn a system, you IMMEDIATELY start figuring out how to make that system mesh with everything else you know.
Matrixing IS a CCS. Matrixing allows you to put ALL arts, all the pieces, into one ‘picture.’
But, of course, it requires you to obsess. Just as it required me to obsess. But, just as I said the purpose of my life was to put science to art, and as I said the purpose of life itself is to become competent, the purpose underneath it all is… to put order to everything.
You put order to the tools in your garage. You tune your car so it is in order and can run. You talk to people at work to make sure you are on the same page, thus putting order to your work. Everything… EVERYTHING… requires order, and it is the obsession of every right thinking human being to make that order happen. On that scale it becomes almost religious.
And, let me say one…last…thing.
As I said, I have achieved the purpose of my life. I achieved it when I sold my first matrixing course. And I achieve it when you buy my course. And, at the end, when you have achieved your purpose… you play.
That’s what is at the end of Matrixing.
Not fame and riches, not dominance and subjugation, not corporate ownership and king for a day, but the single and sole ability…
So get a course, start the journey, and come play with me.
Have a great work out! Al
PS, any trouble with courses, any questions about anything, drop me an email at:
Excellent! You survived Thanksgiving, now all you have to do is make it through Xmas! Or, Hanakwanmass, as I call it. Remember, the best way to make it through anything, is to work out every single day. Nobody can beat a guy (or gal) who is in top condition!
Click on the Monkey to find out about Monkey Boxing!
Okay, time for an update on Monkey Boxing.
Before I start, let me say that the main focus of this newsletter is matrixing. Monkey Boxing will come up every couple of weeks, but, believe it or not, there are a few people who don’t want personal lessons from a guy with 50 years experience, they don’t want to tap into the mind that created matrixing and neutronics.
And, believe it or not, that’s okay, I have nothing against people who choose to remain ignorant. Good people, them, and future customers.
To them I recommend Matrixing. Good place to start before you jump into my world.
So, that said, Monkey Boxing is doing excellent!
About 20 videos were released this month. They deal with the whole spectrum of Monkey Boxing, from warm ups to kicks to the incredible ‘Rolling Fists’ exercise, to techniques and forms… lots of stuff.
And here’s something to think about… everything has my stamp on it, been matrixed up the yin yang, very scientific, very thorough, very intuitive, but… nobody has ever seen, except maybe through a quick mention, or an obscure video, such things as ‘The Circle of Blocks’ (Monkey Boxing Style) Monkey in a Box Circle of Blocks and attacks The Flower of Blocks Grab Hands The Monkey Blast
Never been seen, or almost never been seen.
Monkey in a Box will build your shoulder strength and help flexibility like gangbusters.
Grab Hands is a VERY heavy zen drill. BUT…you have to do it right. Here, you see it right.
The Flower of Blocks will build hand speed, and leg strength, if you do it while in a horse stance, like nobody’s business.
The Circle of Blocks opens up total new vistas of ability.
These things haven’t been seen, or only briefly referenced or described.
New martial arts. Stuff developed for Monkey Boxing, and never been seen in ANY other martial art.
Something to think about.
And, that all said, the coming months are going to be fantastic.
I’m writing a complete book, a freebie for the Monkey Boxers.
Dozens and dozens of unique and original (which is to say ‘never been seen’) exercises and drills.
The frustrating thing about all this is that I am gearing this off a real class I am teaching. People from the ground up, very little experience, so I jump around.
I’m writing a Monkey Boxing book, (freebie to subscribers) and the book will help in this. It will be ready in a month or so, and provide a massive overview and work out schedule.
But you will be picking and choosing, and trying to make sense out of this for a couple of months.
The good news is that in jumping around I am referencing things that haven’t been seen for a LONG while.
Grab Hands, for instance, you might have actually seen, but never the martial arts side of it, never the zen side of it. And it is TOTAL dynamite. Calms the mind, gets rid of twitches and flinches, and zeroes you in like a lazier guided rocket!
Okay, enough of the good news, let me give you some bonus good news.
Every month will be archived once past. BUT, I can’t sell an empty page to somebody on the first few days of the next month. So, the first week of the month, the videos from last month will remain up. After the first week, the previous month will get archived, but, for that first week, if you are smart… sign up and the previous month is still there. Watch, download, save your own personal copy, (but, please, don’t give my stuff away).
What this means is that you will have a window, about 7 days, when you can actually get two months for the price of one.
Remember, once a month is archived you will have to purchase separately.
Subscribers will, of course, have access to every month since they began subscribing.
Okay, that’s it, back to Matrixing next time,
AND GET READY FOR HANAKWANMASS!
Remember, a work out every day of the month is better than anything Santa can bring you. So start working out now, and give yourself the best present ever!
The Truth of Martial Arts and Indian Stealth Skills! part five
Good celebration! I hope it’s a celebration, because it’s election night. Quick, work out, make the election go right!
Making Kenpo Karate unique to every individual.
SPECIAL NOTICE: Major announcement will be released in the next newsletter. It is so major, that you will probably be getting another newsletteer… TONIGHT!
But, right now, let’s focus on the fifth part of the series on Native Indian stealth tactics.
This is the fifth part of a five part series. Subscribe to the newsletter to read the other parts
In the first four articles we have discussed how and why the American Indian was possibly the finest light infantry in the world.
I know that I lost a few people with the last article. Logical, real, and yet some people are so out of tune with themselves, of who they really are, that they pounded on the back button once they read my last article.
That said, I want to sum up and mention a few odds and ends.
First, the American Indian was possibly the finest light infantry in the world. And when the European introduced the horse, he became possibly the finest light cavalry in the world. I haven’t mentioned this before, but it is true.
The reason the Indian was so good was because if he wasn’t…he starved. In fact, he wasn’t beaten in combat by the white man, so much as infected with disease.
The Indian was raised to be a warrior. At the age of six he was turned over to the braves, and he was taught, under the strictest circumstances, how to be silent, how to walk and hunt with extreme silence. This teaching included a profound respect for the spirituality of the world.
Here’s a few things I didn’t mention.
Watch your posture. From the tips of your toes throughout your entire body, there is a correct way to move. Find the way. (Hint: The Master Instructor Course)
And, another hint, when I was a wee lad, back in the dark ages, my grandmother would not let me slouch. When sitting it was demanded that I sit with my back straight. Proper posture, no slouching allowed. Period. Take this attitude towards every part of your body.
You need more leg strength. In a society filled with chairs and slouches, you need to cultivate your ability to move, and this means, starts with, strong legs.
Breath deeply, but silently. Breath so that every cell in your body benefits.
Cultivate the ability to be still. When you are still you can better emanate (and learn to focus) awareness.
Dress with an eye to blending with the environment. Wouldn’t you love to see a camouflage dress suit?
Be aware of where you stand. Don’t create a shadow, blend with the shadows. Take advantage of light.
Check the wind.
Here is a not so funny story. I read of a fellow in Viet Nam who claimed he could smell the enemy. He insisted on basing his motion in the bush on what he could smell. The members of his squad quickly learned to trust him totally. He was always right, always spotted the enemy, and he and his squad (those who followed his nose) came home.
Others who had no sense of smell, didn’t come home.
To be truthful, I think there is more to a sense of smell than just smell. It is said a shark can smell blood in the steer from a mile away. But a bit of blood CANNOT travel a mile through water. So what is the shark sensing? Might this not be an ability we know nothing about? A ‘spiritual’ sensing of energy in spite of water?
And there are other examples of this thing that might be smell, but might be something else, in nature.
