Using Neutronics in the Martial Arts

Matrixing v Neutronics

Let me explain the difference between Matrixing and Neutronics.

Matrixing establishes an overall grid
by which you can ascertain the truth of motion…
in relation to the universe.
You’ve got to understand this,
in Matrixing you are still limited by the universe.
Do enough matrixing,
and you aren’t limited,
you get to Neutronics.

stay with me here,
I’m about to take a left turn.

If you matrix the human spirit enough
you end up with the truth of spirit.

I matrixed religion,
and that gave me virtue.
Virtue is the statement of human experience in this universe.
Stand with virtue,
and you grow larger.
Discard virtue,
and you grow smaller.
It’s an interesting truth.

But that is only religion,
and religion is not always right.
Religion is too often slanted
by personal interest,
by the quirks of the human soul,
sounds a bit like the write up on Matrix Karate,

I matrixed the human spirit,
and I found something interesting.
Matrix the human spirit enough
and you end up with the truth of spirit.
You can’t matrix any further at this point,
because the spirit has no motion,
and the universe is the illusion of motion
that one has created to give oneself experience.
Neutronics kicks in
that one might understand this state of ‘no motion.’

Get it?
Matrixing is for motion,
Neutronics is for no motion.

In essence,
Neutronics is matrixing at the spiritual level,
but the transformation of understanding that occurs here
makes the normal matrixing graphs invalid,
and demands a different but senior set of datums.

in my universe,
was backed up by my experience of enlightenment,
by doing sticky hands and getting out of my body,
seeing the universe as motion
from a motionless point.

So experience backed up theory.

here is the problem.
I wrote the books on Neutronics
removed from the martial arts.
I was interested in the datums,
and how they related to the universe,
and not through the slant of martial arts.
What this means is that if you get any books on Neutronics,
your mind gets blown,
but there isn’t a lot to connect it to the martial arts.
how do we relate Neutronics,
how do we USE Neutronics
when it comes to martial arts?

we seek that state of motionlessness
that is the truth of you.
We find the viewpoint that is apart from your body,
that exists forever,
and puts on bodies like suits of clothes,
and discards them when done.

We do this by finding perfection of motion through the forms.
We find perfection by having the right data..by applying Matrixing.

by doing the above
you increase your awareness.
This is crucial and even the point of it all.

before I give you my example
of how to use Matrixing in the Martial Arts,
I want to say that everything I say here
is also backed up in religions texts.
Specifically the Patanjali,
if you know enough Neutronics,
you can see what all the religious texts are talking about.

here is an example of neutronics,
bear in mind that if you use neutronics
no situation can become physical.
People on the Matrix level still need the physical,
People on the Neutronics level
can defeat attackers without moving the body.
Here goes.

I walk into a room,
there are a dozen people there,
I scan them,
make note of all positions,
then I say something in a loud, booming, commanding voice, like…

‘How are my slaves today?’


‘The reason I called you all together…’

I watch them.
There are three potential responses,
and only three.
Towards me,
away from me,
or with me.

One response is,
‘What you mean slave?’
Aggression is directed towards me.

Another response is,
‘Who’s the crazy guy?’
Pushing me away.

Third and last response,
the guy who smiles,
says something like,
‘We’re fine, massa.’

You see,
He didn’t go away or towards,
he maintained balance.

He is sure of himself,
he is in the moment,
instead of reacting to my borderline communication,
he stayed with it,
engaged it,
never lost himself,
and he is the one I will gravitate to.

let’s say I’m talking to the balanced one,
and the guy who got aggressive comes up to me,
I know he’s coming towards me,
and I have done enough matrixing
that I never have to resort (grin) to martial arts.
I have choices.
I can go towards him,
away from him,
I can just balance him.

To balance him all I need to do is pick a direction
that will establish a distance
and maintain it.
this is a circle.
He closes,
I sidestep,
circle circle.

I know somebody out there is going to think,
is he a blocker, a jammer, or a runner…
oh, Al is doing Aikido or Pa Kua or…?

That would be the kenpo slant on Neutronics.
Or the Aikido slant on Neutronics.
Or some other stylistic version of Neutronics.
But Neutronics,
real Neutronics,
has no slant.
It is the truth,
the pure.
The simple.

Blocker, jammer or runner comes from Neutronics.
Neutronics doesn’t come from kenpo.
Circling comes from Neutronics,
Neutronics doesn’t come from circling.
You have to assess which is the truth here,
and which is the version.

And you have to remember that I am doing this mentally,
with no physical motion.
I circle or sidestep or go towards or away in my mind,
and that handles the reality of him
with no need for motion.

This brings us to an interesting point,
everything becomes weird
when you fold emotions into the matter.
Ever see somebody who is running angrily away?
His body is going one way,
and his emotions are going the other,
and how the heck do you handle that?

do enough Neutronics,
and you can.
And you can handle it with a sudden glow of spirit,
that pulls the plug on the twist of emotions,
and the odd manifestation of motion and emotion.

The trick is this,
everybody thinks they know about this stuff,
oh yeah,
it’s simple,
I knew that.
But they don’t.

They are still locked in systems,
running the maze of tricks and confusion,
arguing over styles,
or having opinions on techniques,
or just generally holding the opinion that they,
that their art,
is best.
And they have never gotten out of the maze
and achieved the overall viewpoint.
They haven’t gotten out because they have never done Matrixing.
Read the wins,
the fellows with the most experience,
the ones deepest into the maze,
are the ones most grateful for Matrixing.

But the point is this,
Neutronics is not a slant,
it is a moment of pure you
that lasts forever,
and enables you to solve problems
as they happen.

Neutronics is not be bound by a system,
but to be unbound in the moment.

I could give you endless examples,
for all life is but an infinite manifestation of neutronic principles.
But what is important is that you do the martial arts,
find the logic in them by matrixing.
Don’t settle for…
this technique connects to this one connects to that one…forever,
but establish a grid by which every martial arts technique has it’s place,
and the interconnection of techniques obvious.

find the principles,
do the Matrix until everything becomes crystal clear,
and you will find yourself,
and then you will understand Neutronics
in a way most difficult to describe.

Neutronics is you,
it is the rules for operating this universe,
a universe that you didn’t even know you created.
Neutronics is the ‘you-niverse.’

Have a Neutronic Work out!


The Plan Behind Matrix Aikido

The Truth Behind Aikido

I love Aikido.
I have been dwelling on it since 1975.
I have made a practice of figuring out
how to translate any art into Aikido.
Somebody can attack me
and I can use most any art to defend,
and then change the last movement into an aikido throw.
whether I use ‘empty hands,’
or ‘skill attained over time,’
or anything else,
I can translate those concepts and actions
into spiritual harmony.

I remember being in class
I had been there a couple of weeks,
and they had realized that I was already a black belt in Karate
and they asked me to step into the multiman freeestyle.
So I did,
and it ruined the exercise.
I locked my punch and stance and whole body,
the flow stopped,
and Aikido became unworkable.
So they asked me ‘out’ of the multiman freestyle.
Ah, well.
I had been so excited, and…
and suddenly this upper black belt came up to me.

The others had gone on with their freestyle,
but Paul had opted out.
He was interested in why they hadn’t been able to throw me.
So i described Karate,
and we tried a few things,
and we nodded in agreement
and saw that it would take a VERY advanced aikidoist to throw me
without my cooperation.
Then I had a thought.
‘Have you ever done Sticky Hands?’
Paul said no.

So I taught him sticky hands.
He was VERY accomplished with concepts of flow,
and he took to it like a duck to water.
he had trouble with.
he enjoyed.

the most interesting thing,
he found he could now apply his Aikido
and throw me.

Of course!
I wasn’t locking down as much,
there was more flow for him to absorb.
An advanced exercise
became the connector
between karate and aikido.

I have to stay,
it was the most intense Aikido lesson I ever had.
He would throw me,
or lock me,
or whatever,
and then,
being not just an advanced Aikidoka,
but a heck of an instructor,
he would turn around and have me do the throw.
it was tough,
but I’m a quick study,
and I managed to keep up with him.

When you think about it,
I received advanced instruction in three arts.
Man, the things I figured out!
Totally mind boggling.

That all said,
let me ask a question.
Just how pure is Aikido?
not very pure.
The same thing that infects other arts
infects Aikido.
It is a put together of systems.
It is tied together with the notion of spiritual harmony,
of agreeing with the motion of an attack,
and that elevates it,
while the ends are pure in a spiritual sense,
the method of getting there is not.
The method is flawed.

The proof that the method is flawed
is that the art is not very workable in combat.
The proof is that it takes too long.

what is the alternative?
when you learn Matrix Aikido
there is a central concept that is not usually mentioned in classical studies,
and if it is,
then only briefly.
This central concept is illustrated in the arrangement of techniques.
the techniques are arranged in logical order,
making it VERY fast for the mind to absorb.
All of the techniques,
especially when the central concept is held in place,
makes the art work.
as I said,
work off any other art.

if you have experience in any other art,
you will be able to apply matrix aikido
after watching the video and reading the instruction manual.

If you don’t have experience,
but you have a bunch of friends
and are willing to go through the book
exactly as it is written,
maybe six months to black belt.
Maybe 2 years to complete mastery.
Might be shorter.
I’m giving you the long estimate.
Might be shorter.

That said,
I DO NOT advocate
getting rid of the old style.
As I said,
Morihei was genius.
The system he devised goes a long way.

there are things you are going to learn
far beyond the logical concept of Matrix Aikido.
if you do Matrix Aikido first,
if you make the art work,
and work well,
and work with any other art,
any weapon,
The doors to another universe open.

You see,
I don’t argue with Aikido,
I merely want people to learn it faster.

Acquiring Sixth Sense Ability In the Martial Arts

Sixth Sense Martial Arts

Sixth Sense Ability, in martial arts like Karate, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, or whatever else, seem to have become not much more than rumors from the past. People learn how to fight like demons, but they don’t learn how to perceive the world without the use of the five physical senses. That’s the truth of the matter, you know, sixth sense ability includes all the things that don’t depend on see, hear, smell, and so on.

sixth sense pictureSimply, if it is a real world sensation, it is not a sixth sense ability. In martial arts like kung fu and aikido and so on, it is being able to ‘feel’ when an attack is coming before it is comes. It is knowing what an opponent is going to do before he does it.

The best method for gaining sixth sense abilities is to learn how to practice without the use of the five physical senses. For instance, the surest technique is simply to do your moves without the use of the eyes. Simply close your eyes, or blindfold yourself, and do your kata, and get somebody who is willing to risk a few light punches, and do your martial arts techniques.

The point here is to understand that you are not trying to see or smell, or that sort of thing, but ‘know.’ So let me pose a question: have you ever walked up to a door and placed the key exactly in the keyhole while your awareness is on a conversation, or watching what somebody is doing? Most people have, and that is the easiest example of ‘knowing’ that I can give you, you knew where to place the key without eyes.

So set up some training devices so that you can practice without using the five physical senses. Do sticky hands, out of Wing Chun, blindfolded, and learn to ‘know’ what your opponent is going to do. Or, how about closing your eyes and practicing push hands from Tai Chi Chuan, or some other similar exercise.

My favorite practice is to hang a small ring, and poke a six foot (or longer) staff through the center of it. After I’ve got the ring fairly well centered in my mind, I close my eyes and turn out the lights. Once I’m adept at that I take a few steps away from the target, move forward and thrust the staff through the ring.

The thing that you should understand is that the sixth sense depends on imagination. If you close your eyes and imagine where the hanging ring is, then you can thrust a pole through it. Or a spear or a sword or even throw a shuriken through it.

So the way you train is this: train with martial arts forms and precise martial arts techniques so that you build a structure, a frame of reference, a scientific way of imagining the world. Second, practice closing your eyes and train without using your physical senses. Last, in this matter of gaining sixth sense abilities in martial arts like karate or taekwondo, is to develop your imagination; that is your true strength, you know: the use of imagination.

The Sticky Hands Of Wing Chun Kung Fu and Love Gone Bad!

This is one of those stories that really should be passed around. Wing Chun Kung Fu, one of the best of the old gung fu systems, was created by a (sniff) little girl! And, if that isn’t bad enough, the Sticky Hands drill, after several hundred years, still represents high tech state of the Martial Arts! Check out the video, then I’ll tell you the sad story.

Wing Chun was a peasant type female in old China. She was a cute, little thing, and she looked forward to marrying her boyfriend, life was going to be tip top, and all that sort of thing. Then, the big, bad bandit chieftain came to her village.

One glance at Wing Chun and the bandit chieftain said that he was going to marry her! Poor, little Wing Chun, she cried large tears and ran into the forest and generally carried on. Life was looking pretty rotten, and it seemed she would never be able to marry her sweet boyfriend!

In the woods, however, she met a nun, name of Ng Mui, who had trained at the Shaolin Temple. Ng Mui listened to the story of the bandit leader’s sickening love, and she decided to help the little girl from the village. She told Wing Chun to put the bandit chieftain off for a year, and that in that year she would teach her a special kind of Gung Fu.

Wing Chun agreed to the plan, and she returned to the village and confronted the bandit leader. She told him that she would marry him in one year, and of her own free will. The kicker was that the bandit leader would have to prove that he was a man and beat her in a fight.

For the next twelve months the young girl trained under the nun. She learned the movements and drilled the self defense techniques. Most of all, she practiced a method of self defense called Sticky Hands.

At the end of a year Wing Chun returned to her home and again confronted the bandit chieftain. In fierce combat, she handed the bad guy his, uh, fanny, subduing him completely. Finally, free from the threat of a real abuser, she was free to marry her boyfriend.

Now, the kicker to all this is that, after getting hitched, Wing Chun and her new hubbie had a little marital spat. And, in the process of straightening him out, she kicked his fanny a bit. I guess he only knew Karate, or Judo, or kenpo, or something that didn’t have Sticky Hands.

Changing from Wing Chun Sticky Hands to Tai Chi Chuan Pushing Hands

On the surface, the transition from Wing Chun Sticky Hands to Tai Chi Chuan Pushing Hands should be easy. Of course, a fire drill is always easy, until there’s a real fire. Thus, to understand this change one must make a few adjustments in their thinking. Check out the video, then I’ll tell you how to make the change.

First, the Sticky Hands of Wing Chun is commonly done with a certain springiness in mind. Someone pushes on your arms, and you give away enough to deflect, and then spring into the opening created. This is a generality, and there is a lot more, but it is what we must focus on to make our transition.

Second, the pushing hands of Tai Chi Chuan is actually a bit misnamed. It should be called ‘emptying the whole body,’ simply, one must give way until the opponent over pushes and thus unbalances himself. This summation of Pushing Hands is quite insufficient, but, again, we are attempting to bridge from one exercise to another, and this is what we must focus on.

Now, we go from giving way with a certain ‘spring back’ within the motion, to a giving way completely with the whole body. One is giving way with the arms, and the other is to give way with the body. Thus, if one can take the ‘spring back’ quality out of the arms, and just concentrate on emptying the arms (giving way with the arms until the opponent unbalances himself), we can make the transition easily.

When an attacker comes at you feel that the springing quality is inadequate for the situation, or you just feel like translating into Tai Chi, match the velocity of the incoming hand, turn the waist, and guide him past. It goes without saying, that he should not feel you guide him. It should be a manipulation not of flesh to flesh, but of hair to hair. Your touch should be so soft that he accepts it without protest.

At this point you should be able to question whether you are doing Wing Chun or Tai Chi. The only difference, you see, is in the stance you are working out of. You may be standing (goat riding) or in a single leg stance of some height, versus being in the deeper shifting stance common to Tai Chi Chuan.

So we come to the crux of it all. Give way in sticky hands and let the attacker fall through (or into a lock). Or give way in Tai Chi and then use the spring back quality of Wing Chun in that art.

We are not really talking large differences here, merely subtle differences that are, to be honest, inherent in either exercise should one take the time to study long enough and with a correct eye to the potentials. The whole point here, is to help people who have been trained in one art to adjust to new training and new methods, and new (sometimes just stated differently) awareness. That is how you make the transition from Wing Chun Sticky Hands to Tai Chi Chuan Pushing Hands.

Wing Chun Gung Fu, The Girly Martial Art That Will Kick Your Butt!

Good Trapping Hands Technique!

Every once in a while somebody will remark that ‘Isn’t Wing Chun Kung Fu that stuff invented by a girl?’ Inside that statement is a bias against ladies who can be pretty darned tough. The statement also reveals some fundamental ignorance.

Many years ago, the myth goes, a warlord was forcing his affections on a peasant girl. The girl escaped into the forest, where she was befriended by a Shaolin nun named Ng Mui. The nun taught the girl enough Gung Fu to take on, and beat, the warlord, and then the young girl was able to marry the man who really had her heart.

The man of her dreams, a fellow named Leung Bac-Chou, also knew some Gung Fu. During a little marital spat he decided to teach his bride a lesson, and wound up being taught a lesson of his own. Fortunately, wifey decided to share her style with hubbie, and the style was named after the wife: Wing Chun (beautiful springtime).

While one could find many plot inconsistencies with this myth, the fact remains that it is one of the more workable systems of the Chinese Martial Arts. This is because the martial system is concept based, but backed up by good, hard work. In other words, students of Wing Chun don’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk.

The system is basically short range oriented. The central drill of the system is Chi Sau, or ‘Sticky Hands,’ a method by which practitioners twine the arms and learn to read and be sensitive to an opponent. People practicing Chi Sau for any length of time become able to virtually ‘read the mind’ of an opponent.

The system also has the famous wooden dummy training tool. This is a thick stand of hard wood outfitted with arms and legs. The student learns how to bash, guide and manipulate an opponent by fighting for endless hours with this wood dummy.

Close range combat is not the only feature of Ving Tsun, however. For middle range work one learns to wield the Butterfly swords. For long range work there is the long spear.

Wing Chun has proven itself over the centuries, and the most famous student was Bruce Lee. Currently, Wing Chun Kung Fu is being practiced around the globe, and is renowned for its combat effectiveness. Not too shabby for a ‘Girls Martial Art.’
