The Release of Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts

Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts

Good afternoon!
And Yeehaw!
The new book is here!

Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts!

The URL is…

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/5a-binary-matrixing-in-the-martial-arts/

monkey kung fuThe main purpose of the book
is to establish the martial arts as a science. To do this,
I offer a basic truth of this universe,
and compare it to the yin yang.
Thus,
myth becomes science.
Mysticism becomes science.
And all of matrixing is thus proven as a science.

Now,
I‘ll tell you more later,
In a day or two I’ll write about the structure of the martial arts,
tell you all sorts of things,
but for right now,
head over to this page

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/5a-binary-matrixing-in-the-martial-arts/

and check it out.
You want to be enlightened?
Get to the truth of the martial arts?
Understand how the martial arts were grown?
Get the cornerstone of all matrixing?
It’s all in
Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts.

This offer will only be up for a week,
then I will probably have the paperback book out,
and be putting the thing on Kindle.
Kindle won’t allow me to sell my own book
in competition with them.
So this is more than likely a one week shot,
take advantage now.

Have a great work out!

The True Language of the Martial Arts

Newsletter 751
Matrixing is the Rosetta Stone of the Martial Arts

Simply gorgeous day.
Unbelievable.
Perfection is a work out away!

Listen,
I know it’s been said before,
but not as importantly as it should be.
The Martial Arts arts are a language.

Without even going into Matrixing,
let me explain something that happened to me.

I went to school,
I was bright and energetic,
thought I was going to get smart,
and didn’t realize that I was already smart,
and that the real purpose was
to make me socially acceptable.
Which means…
do what you’re told.

So I signed up for a language.
This was when I was in sixth or seventh grade.
A summer school program,
and I was really excited1
I was going to learn a while language!
I went to class
I sat there and learned how to count,
the teacher made remarks about how the mouth
has to be a certain shape,
and I rapidly became incredibly bored,
and I floundered,
and my excitement disappeared
faster than sheep
at a convention of wolves.
Didn’t like languages,
didn’t want to learn languages.
Stupid stuff.

And,
if that wasn’t bad enough,
I tried again in high school,
and it was worse,
then,
when it came to college…
the hell with it.

So what happened?
What happened was a simple matrixing problem.
When you see your first matrix,
and this is in Matrix Karate,
you see how the matrix is used
to find out the things you didn’t understand,
the things that you didn’t even know were there.

When you learn language,
or just about any other subject in school,
there is no matrix,
so hidden at the edges,
and often in plain sight
are all the things you don’t understand.
And this confuses the things you do understand.

Here’s your new language,
call it Alioffstupe.
Count to ten.
The numbers are
one, dos, elebong, ta ta, 6, (blank), xxx.
Well, the numbers aren’t all there.
And the ones that are aren’t totally understandable,
or seem out of place,
and,
by the way,
your mouth is in the wrong shape so you’re wrong.

Still feel like learning my new language?
I don’t think so.
It is stupid,
and it doesn’t make sense,
so nobody in their right mind
would want to learn Alioffstupe.

Okay,
you know where I’m going with this…
when you are taught to learn the martial arts,
you need to count in another language.
The concepts are badly mangled zen,
and the teacher says you’re the wrong race!
Maybe in three or four lifetimes you can learn it,
but…not now.
Now the best you can hope for
is to bow extra low
to those who are shaped better than you.

So the martial arts are a language,
a move is a letter,
a technique is a word,
a form is a sentence,
and so on.
but without a matrix,
the letters are from different cultures,
the words are from different languages,
and the forms are…silly and don’t make sense.

Heck,
you can’t come across a forum today
where some fellow doesn’t lambast forms.

But,
all it means is that he doesn’t understand a language,
he was culture warped,
and he is protesting,
and trying to rationalize something he didn’t understand.

Look at that last sentence,
‘rationalize something he didn’t understand,’
right there,
that is the problem,
ALL THE PROBLEMS,
of all the martial arts.

And here’s the sad thing,
even if you are smart,
diligent,
and get through the mess,
you don’t have a method for teaching
that will bypass what you had to go through!
In other words,
without matrixing you’re passing on the martial arts
in the same unintelligible fashion
they have been passed on for millennium.
AND YOU DON’T EVEN SEE THE PROBLEM!
Heck,
it makes sense to you,
You made it through,
you didn’t see any problem,
and you don’t understand what is going on in the student’s mind.

And the problem is this:
if you don’t have matrixing,
you are lost in a jungle of bastard languages,
and don’t even know it.

Can you give up false learning,
to learn true learning,
and then make all that you have learned true?

Can you learn matrixing,
and save all your students?

Interesting question,
eh?

And here’s the obligatory link…

Hope to see you there.

Now,
have a GREAT work out!
And I’ll talk to you later.

An Overview of Matrixing in the Martial Arts

The Truth about Matrixing

Great day to you!

and a GREAT work out!
Lots of sweat,
maybe a little blood,
just enough to let you know
you are more than alive.
People who walk around are alive.
Those who work out are getting more alive.

lop sau rolling fists freestyle drillI’ve had a lot of new people to the newsletter lately,
so let me sum up Matrixing.
Let them know what they got them selves into.
Incidentally,
what I am about to tell you
I wrote in a letter to a fellow.
His question was that he wasn’t sure what he was getting,
he was studying,
but matrixing didn’t always make sense.
So I thought he needed an overview.
And here it is for you.

Before we get into it,
however,
I have a special deal
for those who have been wanting the Rolling Fists course.
I finally figured out why it wasn’t showing up on the menu at Monster.
As usual, it was one of those slap your head things.
I forgot to check a box,
and it was disappearing.
Doh! (Smack)

Anyway, stay tuned for a special offer,
after the newsletter.
I’ve got a special deal
where you can save $30
on Rolling Fists.
Right now,
however,
here is the answer I wrote
concerning an overview of matrixing.

Hi Michael, glad you are having fun with the matrixing…probably an overview would help you out at this point.

The one sticking point for most people is that they have a hard time viewing the body as a machine. This is because if the body is a machine, then what are they? And the answer: they are awareness, a point in space ‘giving off’ light. Or ‘shedding awareness.’

This point, of being a point of awareness, is actually the subject of neutronics. I’ll attach a booklet (prologue) for you to better understand that subject.

The second thing to remember, in this overview, is the example I give of Eddie Rickenbacker (pg 102 of Matrixing: The Master Text).

Eddie visualized his plane on a line through space, and he had to handle incoming forces, so he visualized himself as a center of a sphere, and then came up with solutions for every angle of attack into that sphere.

Doing this for the body (the machine that you occupy, or ‘drive’) you come up with the rules of operation for the body. There are five specific rules for operating the body efficiently. These are:

Breath, relax, sink downward, align the body, coordinate the body in motion

After these five rules for maximizing potential of personal motion of the body, which are applied through the practice of form, you get into analyzing the forces and flows (directions) of incoming ‘objects’ (fists, feet, etc.). This is where you begin to construct matrixes of blocks, matrixes of ranges, and so on.

And this is where you construct specific theories of art. Karate as a defense, or Aikido, or tai chi, and so on. Each art describes a specific range, or angle of motion, and is defined by a specific concept or concepts.

Okay, so that is the overview. But, don’t worry if matrixing doesn’t ‘burst inside your head.’ Some people, a very few people, get a blast of enlightenment, everything makes sense, they see the whole picture, etc. But most people just have to compile the art, piece by piece, and settle for becoming more and more competent, until they just know everything.

There are times when I have had ‘mystical insight,’ where everything was like a message from God, a vision, and I understood everything. That was because I had accumulated enough data, and it suddenly, in a moment, made sense.

But other times I would just work and work for a few years, would experience no enlightenment, but found that I had developed superior abilities in various areas.

In Karate I had a moment of profound vision, the world turned gold, and I understood. But in Pa Kua I never experienced that, but did find, after a few years of walking the circle, that my legs were like oaks, yet filled with a lightening like energy.

So don’t worry if things don’t suddenly open up for you, just keep going, settle for the slow but sure knowledge of abilities gained over time. Just realize that you keep accumulating data, until you have the knowledge, until there are no more questions.

Think of where you were before you started the martial arts, and where you are now, and realize that some day you will be looking back to where you are now, and be somewhere very, very advanced compared to now.

Just remember, the martial arts are a BIG field. But the concepts are simple. And the process is actually one of simply gathering and arranging data until everything makes sense and there isn’t any more mystery; it is a process of isolating the simplicities and then applying them to the larger field of chaos that is the accumulated martial arts.

Hope this helps, and thanks for getting me to sum it up. I’ll print portions of this email as a article or blog that others may understand the process they go through when matrixing.

Have a great work out! Al

So there it is,
an overview.
It is VERY simple,
yet the complexity of applying simplicities
in a classical martial art
can take decades,
lifetimes.
But that is why I have matrixing.
To shorten the process.
To get you there in months,
not decades.
Still,
it is not always easy to get,
sometimes you need extra.
So…write me.
Did you know that I answer ALL emails.
If I don’t answer yours
it is because it never arrived,
or I had a DOH! moment and misplaced it,
or some other stupid reason.

So just ask again.
And, I try to go in depth into any answer.
If it’s simple,
I’ll say it simple,
then throw a couple of hundred words trying to make sure
that my answer is thoroughly understood.

Now,
about Rolling Fists.

Rolling Fists is the advanced form of freestyle I teach
after someone has gotten to black belt.
Or with specific martial arts I teach.

It is based upon Lop Sau,
but it is not just a short drill,
but rather a complete form of freestyle.

You will see it in several of my courses,
but the Rolling Fists I am talking about here
is a video course of me teaching it.
38 individual lessons,
step by step, point by point,
making sure that that the student has NO misunderstanding
concerning this advanced form of freestyle.

Now,
this is VERY intense stuff.
And,
I actually thought it was listed in my courses.
BUT,
due to me not checking a box
it was not appearing in the menu.
So now it is,
and here it is…

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/rolling-fists/

You can go there and order to your heart’s content.

EXCEPT…I have a special, little offer for you.

When I was making the disks
the labels didn’t fully print.
So I’ve got five courses
and a couple of disks on each course
have faded labels.
That’s it.
That’s the big mistake.
Faded labels.

But I can’t sell faded labels.
And I hate to throw them away.
So instead of charging $49.95 for the set of disks,
if you will accept a couple of faded labels,
I’ll sell them to you for $19.95.

That’s a $30 savings.

All you have to do is go to the page offering The Punch
http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/hard-punch/
And order,
then email me at aganzul and tell me you would like the Rolling Fists faded labels.

One of the disks on this set is badly faded,
but you can read it.
And one of the others is just a little faded.
The other two disks aren’t too bad.

So,
special deal.
a fifty dollar course,
on disk,
$20.

Now,
have yourself a FANTASTIC work out!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Matrixing Karate a Resounding Success!

Matrixing Karate Publication a Winner!

The Matrixing Karate series is causing a massive rethink as to how the martial arts are done.

The books, written by Al Case, present the art of Karate from white belt to master. What makes them unusual and highly original is the scientific approach.

martial arts course

Amazing new book! click on the cover!

Mr. Case points out that the martial  arts are done ‘monkey see monkey do’ fashion, with the student eschewing learning for the simple memorization of hundreds of random sequences.

The matrixing method establishes an ‘alphabet,’ which then causes a scientific process, and real learning.

The result is that the student doesn’t just learn the martial arts, he ‘absorbs’ them, and up to ten times faster.

Imagine studying for a few months and suddenly knowing the martialarts well enough to defend yourself. in this age of high crime that is a real blessing.

Slowly but surely, other artists are learning that the faster method for learning the martial arts is the only way to go. The marines, for instance, in their MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Program), have reduced the number of belts to five, and students can master the material in as little as 30 hours per belt level, on the average.

So faster martial arts, and more effective martial arts, is the wave of the future. Mr. Case appears to be right on the cutting edge with his new science of Matrixing.

Interested readers can inspect his matrixing books on amazon. Simply go to Amazon and search for Al Case Matrix Karate.’

Matrixing Kenpo Contribution Under Attack!

Newsletter 697
Matrixing Kenpo Under Attack

Happy afternoon to you!
And happy work out.
Remember,
a work out a day
keeps old age away.

Now,
interesting headline I’ve got,
Matrixing Kenpo under attack.

I wrote a three book series,
Matrixing Kenpo.
I go into the beginnings of the art,
the structure,
and how to restructure it
so it makes more sense
and is a better art.

It’s a good series of book.
It is an important contribution of matrixing to the martial arts.

Imagine my surprise when I received notice
from my publisher,
that a copyright infringement had been filed.

Huh!
I made the whole book by myself,
based on descriptions I originally wrote back in the sixties.
I feel I have a right to the system,
as I paid tuition for it.
I became an instructor in it.

And,
honestly,
if the kenpo people
who filed the copyright infringement on me
really felt I was guilty,
why didn’t they file copyright infringement
on the people who taught me,
and the people who taught my instructor?
Hmmm.

Now,
don’t get me wrong,
I don’t believe in copyright infringement,
if the kenpo people have a real right,
I’ll back right off,
and announce it here.

Heck,
I’m a writer,
I don’t want people taking my stuff,
so if they have a case,
I’ll back off.

BUT,
the only image I know of
that could be construed as copyright infringement,
was taken from a public domain site for images.

Now,
if I needed more due diligence,
then I stand guilty,
I’ll apologize,
change the image,
and life goes on.
But here’s the thing,
are they claiming to own Kenpo?
Are they claiming the techniques of Kenpo for their own
and everybody has to pay them?
Hmmm.

And,
let’s take it a step further,
does anybody own Karate?
Ed Parker learned it from somebody else,
and they learned it from somebody else.

So who owns Karate?
or Kenpo,
in this case.

Which brings us to an interesting question.
They had to have read the book,
what didn’t they want people to know?
What ‘secrets’ have I revealed?

Interesting question, eh?

Is it just that they didn’t like what I said about Ed?
Is it that they feel I have violated some ‘secrecy clause’ somewhere?
Have I really revealed secrets?
Is it something else?

Is it perhaps that I have explained things so that there are no secrets?

Anyway,
here’s the deal,
the artwork is all original,
the method I describe cannot be copyrighted.
Consider this passage from chillingeffect.org

Question: Does copyright protect techniques or methods?
Answer: No. Copyright protects only expression, not ideas. So while copyright might protect one author’s description of a bookkeeping method, it does not prevent others from using the method or copying the forms needed to use it.
This “idea/expression dichotomy” is spelled out in part in the Copyright Act’s Section 102(b):

So replace book keeping with martial arts,
and you have my idea.

Now,
the truth of the matter is that the kenpo people stopping me
are probably selling stuff.
The Ed Parker Brand,
whatever that is.
And tha is what they are ‘protecting.’
But if they try to stop Karate,
and specifically the Kenpo form of it,
then they are standing in the way of progress.

Simply,
the secret they may be scared I will reveal
is that Kenpo has weaknesses,
and that I am fixing them.

Not a good thing for their art,
if i prove it…wrong?

But,
I repeat,
I believe in author’s rights,
and if i have crossed the line,
I’ll apologize,
and do right
to fix whatever mess
I might have created.

The point here is this,
they have filed a complaint
and the Matrixing kenpo books may not be available.
If they are
get ‘em while you can.

And,
if you can’t,
hold on to the message telling you
you can’t buy Matrixing Kenpo.
It might prove valuable
somewhere down the road.
If they won’t sell,
get refusal messages for all three books
and save them.
They might prove valuable.

Now,
other than that bit of news,
please go on about your business,
practice and practice,
make your art perfect,
make yourself perfect,
and don’t forget to check out

How to Stay Grounded in the Martial Arts

Sunday Morning and the Martial Arts!

My day of …work out.
On the seventh day he…worked out?
Something to think about, eh?

But,
remember,
you don’t get where you’re going
by being a lazy so and so.
You get there by being
a lean, mean, work out machine.

martial arts poetry

Neutronic concepts in verse…click on the cover!

So,
where are you going?
There are stages of development,
you know.

First stage,
how do you tie a belt,
oh, forgot to bow,
how do I remember what to do.
Man, this is a LOT of work!

Then you get to black belt.
Lot’s of signposts before then,
but it’s still one stage,
reaction time disappears,
intuition appears,
and you absorb some mighty powerful stuff.

Second stage,
what the heck do I do now?
Do I practice this one art?
Work my way up the higher belt levels?
Do I sample other arts?
What do I do about this attack of pride
that seems to have lodged in my soul?

Third stage,
what the heck is this all about?
Do you see the progression here?
It is all about finding answers.
First you want to fight,
then you want to learn,
and it’s always about making decisions,
finding your way,
accumulating data until…?

If you are in an art that is competition oriented,
your progress is often truncated
when you get to old to compete.

If you are in an art with no roots,
an eclectic art,
then you either go away,
or you start searching for roots.
Lot of Kenpo people get involved with this one.
I was heavily there,
back in 69.

Some people make the transition
from learning
to teaching.
This is good,
because you actually learn more when you teach.
BUT,
there are some very serious roadblocks here.
Have you answered enough questions in your own mind,
to answer questions in others minds?
Are you teaching because you love the art?
Or because you love the domination?
This is a hard one,
especially considering what the martial arts are:
a discipline for dominating.
But teaching,
real teaching,
is different.
It is not about dominating,
it is about sharing.
Makes it hard to balance discipline with having fun.
Love of teaching is not enough.
Many instructors fall into this category,
they love to teach,
and they aren’t very good martial artists,
but the authority of the position
is very magnetic.
Electric.
A close cousin to domination,
without realizing it.

The problem here
is that nobody really knows how to teach.
They monkey see monkey do
how they were taught.
They follow the same method
that has been used for thousands of years.
A method designed for people
who weren’t literate,
who had no logic.
And they do this
even though the system they are teaching
is being degraded by all manner of influences,
including and sometimes especially
modern teaching methods.

I got lucky.
I studied with a fellow who didn’t talk.
He smiled,
he laughed,
he offered no opinion
just let us learn.
He didn’t inject himself into the teachings.
I studied for near seven years,
In that time he said maybe a dozen things.

‘A tight fist is a heavy fist.’

‘There are many paths to the top of the mountain.’

And so on.

Honestly,
I don’t remember the things he said,
I remember the feeling when he stepped on the mat,
the electrical current running up my legs.
I remember stepping on the mat myself
and suddenly being swept up
in a desire to work out
that was unlike anything
I had ever experienced.

Nobody ever dominated,
because he never dominated.

Nobody ever got lost in odd explanations of why this technique worked because of the neural synapsis that fired when the fight or flight syndrome was engaged because of the direction of the attacker’s eyes when…

All we did was the forms,
and we tried things,
and when the things didn’t work,
he was there to show us what did work.

That was the essence of the education,
you know,
to find out what worked.

When you find out what works
it answers all questions.
When you are lost in explanations offered
by people who want to be teachers,
or fighters,
or something other than martial artists,
then you end up thinking that the things that don’t work
will work.
The whole class skews.
The art skews.

When you get the explanation for what works,
by being directed to do the form,
and to find out what works,
then you learn the art.
And,
then you aren’t swayed into mystique land
or lost in the illogics,
or lose your roots.

Your roots are you.
After you do the forms
the way they are supposed to be done,
in silence and looking for what works,
then you answer your questions,
there are no more mysteries,
and you are left with you.

A greater blessing has no man.

Anyway,
thanks for letting me rant,
hope it helps.
And there is always
The Master Instructor Course,
if you need a little extra
in the way of instruction.
Works for every student,
every teacher,
because it is grounded in how the universe actually works
and it is rooted in the truth of you.

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/4-master-instructor-course/

Now,
have a great Sunday,
or whatever day you get this on.
Remember,
any day can be a day of rest…
any day can be a day of work out.

Have a great work out!

Publication of Final Volume of Matrixing Karate Series!

Releasing the Fifth Volume of Matrixing Karate: Master

This is the official announcement that ‘Matrixing Karate: Master,’ has been released.

It was actually finished a couple of weeks ago, and it has had time to get up on Amazon, and it is in the createspace bookstore, so it’s time to make it official.

karate master requirements

Click on the cover for the latest book in the Matrixing Karate series.

The first volume of this pivotal Karate series was dedicated to fixing basic movements. Volumes 2 – 4 were aimed at explaining matrixng principles, introducing matrixing graphs, and so on. Volumes 1 – 4 were based on the Matrix Karate course available at MonsterMartialArts.com.

The fifth and final volume is a bit different. It is based on a series of manuals written over the years, and upon the ‘Create Your Own Art’ video course.

The thing that makes this final book so important, and sets it apart from even the books it was based upon, is that it goes through the history and concepts of Matrixing and details exactly where each concept came from.

Thus, you are taken on a journey, from the first martial art studied by the author, Kenpo Karate, through each and every martial art he studied. This includes detailing concepts from separating two arts successfully (Kang Duk Won and Kwon Bup) and developing a third based on those two. (Outlaw Karate: The Secret of the One Year Black Belt). It goes into the exact influences that resulted in the development of matrixing, including the original matrixing lists from the 70s and 80s, and leads right into the creation of the Matrix graph.

One thing that may be surprising to students of the martial arts is that the author developed matrixing without the matrixing graph. Instead, he used lists of techniques, reworking the lists for every concept he encountered. This actually entailed, literally, thousands of lists. Thus, the development of the Matrixing Graph is a bonus to the martial arts of unparalleled value.

The book may be found on Amazon. It is paperback, and students of the martial arts are encouraged to get the earlier volumes first, that they may better understand the import and significance of this volume.
