You can cure yourself of insanity, the whole planet of being insane, if you can find Real Karate. Now, we are not talking real karate videos here, nor some other fantasy. We are talking about the type of martial arts studied over the ages that work on all sorts of different levels. There was a goju ryu karate club in my town when I grew up, but knowing about something didn’t save me from the chaos of school. I was treated to the teacher father figures, bullying classmates, and an education that didn’t relate to the world. So I needed Goju, or something like it, but didn’t know it. As school progressed people began discovering drugs. Man, a good fighting discipline really would have worked to protect me from people going unconscious and crazy, which is what pills do to you. A good karate club would have enabled me to retain dignity and integrity at a time when I needed it the most. Eventually, society turned to the Viet Nam War, and this was the craziest thing in the world. The bumper sticker used to read, ‘Travel to exotic lands, meet wonderful people, and kill them.’ Fortunately, at about that time I was rescued from this chaos…I did discover the Ed Parker Chinese American kenpo karate system. I worked out ruthlessly, doing karate kumite by the hour, but, eventually, I was to be disillusioned by the martial arts techniques I was learning. I was learning hundreds of fighting techniques, but they didn’t have to much to do with the real world. Kenpo, though it was wonderful, was based on combat fantasy scenarios. I went to the Kang Duk Won for my next step towards a rational world, and it was to prove a blessing. Here the discipline was rigorous and total, and the energy created was all consuming. I learned that all my sweat and bruises could concentrate on one factor: the handling of the incoming fist. One, single incoming missile, and I had to handle it, but that one incoming missile represented rage and anger and chaos. Thus, in handling the fist, I was handling the rage and anger and chaos of a world that believed in war and drugs and misinformation. As I understood this I began to develop my matrixing methods. Through Matrixing I ordered all my martial arts techniques, arranged them so that they represented a whole science, and not an out of sequence put together. The art became a science, and through the combative sciences I made my final break with insanity. So for me there were six degrees of insanity: school, drugs, war, kenpo, classical karate, and matrixing…and this is the path I followed when I discovered Real Karate. You can find Real Karate at Monster Martial Arts.
