don’t get me wrong,
people need Matrixing.
They need to understand the science of the martial arts.
It is the only way they will gain true understanding,
and true understanding is necessary
for true mastery.

I have provided many paths for people to master the martial arts.

You can do the classical route by going to:


You can do the Matrix Karate route by going to:


You can do a variety of martial arts
by doing any martial art I offer,
and The Master Instructor Course.


So what could be better than that?

What could be better than that is if I gave you personal lessons
for as little as $2.50 per week.

Go to:

The Truth of Monkey Boxing

Monkey Boxing is MY art.
It is not the scientific analysis of art,
as in Matrixing,
or matrixed courses,
but it does,
of course,
follow matrixing principles.

Monkey boxing includes the following courses,
which are offered on MonsterMartialArts.com.

Blinding Steel.
Matrix Kung Fu
Rolling Fists

tied together by The Master Instructor Course.
You thought I would teach you something without using
The Master Instructor Course?)

you will get snippets and tidbits
from ALL my courses,
because I have to give you all the drills,
and tell you where they came from,
and how they were developed.
And ALL my drills and exercises.
And Forms and Freestyle.
And everything else.

And you can ask me questions.
I will respond by email,
if necessary and appropriate,
on video.

I draw on everything in my 50 years experience,
to teach you my art.

the drawback is that there isn’t going to be
a specific order to all this stuff.

I am teaching people Monkey boxing,
as I teach the video course.
I draw on material I need,
as I need it.

So I don’t organize it,
I just teach it
in an intuitive sequence
based on what my students need.

don’t worry,
I will be releasing,
sometime in the next few weeks,
a study guide of some sort,
to help you order all the material,
so you will understand the order,
and be able to focus on that order.

Don’t get me wrong,
this course DOES NOT replace matrix ing.
Matrixing is the ultimate science,
it is the martial arts in order.

But this my art,
the art that has come out of me
because of all my experiences,
because I need to express myself.

here is the special announcement website…

Light Kung Fu Can Be Made Out of Any Martial Art

Change Your Martial Art into Light Kung Fu

It’s true, Light Kung Fu can be made out of any art you study, and that includes Karate, Silat, Aikido, whatever! In fact, it is incredibly simple!

All you have to do is go get some cinderblocks, set them on end, and do your forms (kata) on them! Instant Light Kung Fu!

light kung fu

The author developing his Light Kung Fu.

Here are some hints to help you out in this search for light body kung fu.

You don’t need a lot of blocks. As little as four, but you can use as many as you want.

It is best to lay them on the side the first few times you do this. After you are comfortable (won’t take but a day or two), you stand them on end. After a week or two, you can lay two on the side. Then you can go to one on end on top of one on end, and then two on end, and so on.

You want to pick a good surface to eliminate wobble. And when you purchase the cinder blocks, set them on end and pick out the ones with the least wobble.

IMPORTANT: when you fall, learn to pick up your feet and search for a place to land. You don’t want to break an ankle by stepping on the falling cinderblock.

Now, this method of light kung fu has been around for years. It is called sunken post, or sunken pillar training. Usually you dig holes and ascend poles until you are six or eight feet off the ground, striking kung fu postures and dancing around like a kung fu crane.

But, that’s a lot of work, so my method is simpler and quicker, and saves a lot of digging and measuring and leveling and basic construction work.

Nothing wrong with the ancient sunken pole method, especially if you are an official kung fu school, but, my method of light kung fu is just easier.

Now, the main area where you grow is going to be in balance.

Everything I balance. From being able to stop yourself in a karate charge without falling forward, to the delicate hourlong meditation of holding the bowl. Everything is balance.

So standing on a couple of cinderblocks on end is going to give you tremendous balance.

First, you will feel awkward, the body will shift back and forth in attempts to keep your balance.

After a while your kung fu maneuvering will become second nature, and it will be as natural as walking, and you will likely feel a nice, little glow developing in your tan tien.

The muscles on both sides of the leg, you see, are going to fire up, work back and forth, and that will start up the body energy generator, which is what the tan tien is.

And that is how you create light kung fu out of Karate, or taekwondo, or pa kua, or…ANY…Martial Art.

Here’s a great article in which the author demonstrates light kung fu. And here’s a great piece on how to learn Shaolin Kung Fu.

Martial Arts and Self Defense Against Weapons

Self Defense Martial Arts

This is a piece on how to use martial arts against weapons.

Put That Gun Down or I’ll Kill You!

Don’t you just love that sort of movie dialogue? The problem is…it reminds me of a lot of things that are happening in that other fantasy land…Washington.

Right now, as we speak, there are bills about guns, magazines, triggers, registration, and so on. Heck, congress would ban David from the bible if they knew he used a sling shot! Fortunately, congress doesn’t read the bible. (Did I really just say that?)

Okay, good times aside, let’s talk about the specifics of weapons.

If you can, comply. Just give him your money. He’ll get caught. And you should go on living.

If you can’t, then you’d better learn how to fight. Some guy pulls out the duc tape, smiles at the young girl and says, ‘Don’t worry, I won’t hurt you.’

BS. Fight back. Kick, scratch, claw, scream, don’t quit no matter what. He’s not interested in taking stuff, he’s interested in domination and death.

Biting is good. You don’t want to catch AIDs, but, grab some DNA the police can use in the event he wins. Yeah, I really did say that.

But, your best bet is to actually learn a martial arts weapon. Or, to learn how to use ANYTHING as a martial arts weapon.

A weapon is basically a straight line…with some curves or edges or hinges or whatever. How many things can you see in the room you are sitting in that qualify as a straight line?

A ruler, a pen, the edge of a book…and the list goes on. But remember this: a properly enraged attitude is a fine weapon.

I knew one fellow who fended off 5 guys on a stairwell with a plate. And he had no martial arts experience, didn’t know karate or kung fu or anything. He was just enraged, and the thugs couldn’t see the plate for the rage, and they reacted as if that plate was an electric sword!

Better than rage, however, is intelligence. Intelligence is your real tool, and it separates man from beast. The cool thing is that martial arts increases your intelligence.

And, even more important, it increases your awareness.

So if you study a martial art, you not only get smarter, but you become more aware. Which is to say you will become aware of a potential attack quicker, and have the intelligence to design techniques to help you survive that attack.

Do you see the vast benefit in studying martial arts? Specifically in conjunction with weapons?

Now, I recommend Blinding Steel as the ultimate weapons course. It is simple and designed to give understanding as quickly as possible. You can pick up ANYTHING and plug it into one of the Blinding Steel patterns (which can be learned in literally minutes), and be able to defend yourself.

Interestingly, I had one of the oddest and best testimonials to this course. A fellow wrote in and he said something to the effect of, ‘I like your course, but I like XYZ’s course better. I didn’t understand XYZ until I had done your course, but I like it better now.’

Do you understand how weird this is? He bought a course he didn’t understand. Then he bought my course, and he suddenly understood not just my stuff, but other stuff about weapons that he had not understood before!

Ah, out of the mouths of babes.

Anyway, check out the Blinding Steel at Monster Martial Arts. The good news is that while it is available as a martial arts DVD, it is also available as Instant Download…and it is VERY cheap!

Death To The Marines And Killer Kung Fu Toys!

Death to the US marines, huh? Sounds like some pretty grisly stuff. Still, we have to wander over some unpleasant hijinks before we get to killer Kung Fu Toys. Check out the video, then I’ll tell you the good stuff.

What many people neglect to remember is that the United States was once in deadly struggle with the Philippines. Odd headline, as the Filipino people are among the most pleasant in the world, and they even helped us during World War Twice. Still, back in 1900 the Philippine people fought a war for independence against the evil Imperial Americkaners.

Now, the battles didn’t last long, the Americans had some mighty fine modern weapons, and the Islanders didn’t. Made for a sort of one sided series of battles. However, the ferocity of the Filipinos was truly unbelievable, and they caused the US military much grief, and even effected change in our army equipment.

First, these insane, little Filipinos would charge out of the thick undergrowth swinging these long and sharp Machetes. These fellows were tough from slicing paths through the jungle vines, they practiced martial arts like silat and escrima, and they just loved to use those machetes on the bare American throat. So the marines started wearing these leather collars on their necks to stop the ‘nicking effect’ and, you guessed it, that’s why marines are referred to as ‘Leathernecks.’

The second change in military procedures was just as dire. The US military was using a .38 long colt. This was a great pistol, lots of fun, looked cool, and did the job…until the Philippine War of Independence.

You see, these little, brown fellows, specifically the Moros, would come out of the jungle screaming like maniacs, and the soldiers would shoot them with those 38s, and the Moros would keep coming! So the army started searching for a handgun with more stopping power. The end result of that search was the 45 automatic, which is known not just for putting holes in bodies, but for blowing entire limbs off of bodies.

Now, last in our little list of odd things and fun, is the killer Kung Fu toy. I say Kung Fu, but I believe it originated on the Philippines, and it has widespread history, in other forms and other arts, as a weapon. I am talking about the yo yo.

Think about it, all those cool tricks can be used with a thicker string, and it that toy can be turned into a bonker of heads, or a nooser of necks. Makes you think twice about that Birthday present for little Johnny, eh? Chuckle.

Head on over over to Monster Martial Arts if you want a free martial arts ebook (on the home page), or to learn an Indonesian Martial Art guaranteed to slice and dice the hardest of bodies. Grin.

So Many Martial Arts..So Little Organization!

The Martial Arts don’t fit together, which is one of the silliest things I ever heard. But it’s true! Wrestling is different from Karate is different from Silat which is different from MMA which is different from…

Yet, the stark fact is that they do fit together, but nobody has figured out the exact science for doing it.

Matrixing does it. Matrixing is a bunch of little truth tables applied to motion, and it opens the doors to the most advanced martial arts in history.

Imagine knowing how to do any martial art, of not being trapped by one martial art, of seeing the whole and total picture of the martial arts. Not many people in history, if ever, have done this. They just didn’t have Matrixing.

Just finished my in depth study of the course (manual & DVDs). Really enjoyed what I would call getting a whole new perspective on my twenty five years of training in the martial arts.

Here’s a vid snippet. I’m doing a perfect technique, (I’m not perfect, but the technique actually is) taking into account all motions and directions. If you don’t understand, at a glance, what I’m doing, then you need Matrixing!

Matrixing starts with Matrix Karate, but the tables can be used to open up any art, and to put whole arts together. Pick up a free ebook on the home page while you’re there.
