The Danger of Reverse Martial Arts!

there are three dangers here,
and one exception,
but first let’s answer the question…
What the heck is ‘Reverse Martial Arts?’
The answer is simple.
Backing up.
Retreating…and usually in disarray and with little hope!

The simplicity,
as you’ve no doubt heard,
is that there are three levels to a man.

If the body backs up,
if you are running,
can’t cope with the attack,
then the opponent can see it,
exploit it,
and chase you down.
By not holding your ground you become weak.

the body backs up because the mind has failed.
The mind is a bunch of memory,
and the memories we are speaking of
are those techniques
you’ve tried so hard to make
But if the attack comes too fast,
is something you don’t understand,
you flinch…
which is to say back up.
So the mind has to back up first,
then the body.

the mind backs up because the spirit has failed.
The spirit is you.
You set yourself a task,
you decide to ‘go forward,’
but something confuses you,
makes you blink,
and you let go your task,
and the mind shuts down,
and the body backs up.

You are in retreat,
and in retreat is the danger of losing.

there is an exception.
If your retreat is a plan,
if you realize something about the other person,
that you can deflate his presence,
depower his weapons,
confuse his strategy,
by a momentary retreat,
by ‘suckering him in,’
then you are not running.
You are setting the other fellow up,
or ‘attacking in retreat.’

that all said,
there is a cure,
a way to make sure that you never fail on any level,
and not on all three levels.
This is to keep the eyes open,
to study your mistakes,
to go forward with thought,
with consideration,
with analysis.
But that’s hard to do.
it is the key to superlative martial arts.

here’s the obligatory link…


if you can do this course,
if you can keep your eyes forward and steady,
unblinking and ready,
while doing this drill…
you are da man!

Have a great work out!




How to Make Visualization Work in the Martial Arts

How to Make Visualization Work

This is the first in a series of articles on mental visualization using neutronic techniques in the martial arts, including such arts as karate, kung fu, etc.. The complete series is available at ChurchofMartialArts.com.

Visualization is the single most important factor in attaining your goals in life…and this visualization starts in the martial arts, and is brought to proper focus with neutronics.

Visualization is the process of creating a mental image (having a thought of what you want), and then using advanced procedures of mental visualization to attain that goal; to get that girl, happiness, perfect job, respect…whatever and anything that you want.

There is light visualization in day to day life. You imagine a sandwich for lunch, you make that happen. Or, you do your homework so you can attain the visualization of an A. Or you work for that dream home. And so on.

But these are very light aspects of visualization.

I can conquer the world, but it all starts with me!

True mental visualization, especially when it is kicked into gear by neutronics, is a powerhouse that will enable you to rule first your life, then the universe.

Now, to be truthful, there are many disciplines that will help you attain your goals, and will introduce you to Visualization. Joining the swimming team is good. Learning ballet is better. A course in Yoga is fantastic. But…the best method for learning and understanding the mental discipline necessary for mastering visualization techniques is learning martial arts. And if you matrix those martial arts you will get where you are going ten times faster.

There are a couple of reasons for this last statement.

One, there is discipline in these fields, and the discipline enables you to control first your body, then your mind. Thus, the point to be understood here is that you don’t need good grades, you need self discipline if you are going to control first yourself, then the world.

Two, the world consists of objects that fly through space. Living is nothing more than learning how to control and handle these flying objects. In the martial arts you have to confront flying objects in a very personal and survival oriented way. The fist, man, is going to hit your face, if you don’t learn to discipline!

So, the martial arts are a superior method for learning how to handle the universe, and that is why they are a superior discipline when it comes to handling the universe through visualization techniques.

Okay, if you haven’t studied the martial arts, then you might just as well bail now. You lack the discipline to make work what I’m going to tell you. Oh, okay, you can stay, but just be aware that after you read what I have written here you’re going to have to sign up for a course in the martial arts. Karate, kung fu, judo, whatever. Doesn’t matter as long as you start the journey to self discipline.
