originated at sea,
where, over the course of a lifetime,
everything eventually wears out.
The concept went through several alterations,
called by other names,
but was summed up in the words of Capt. Ed Murphy.
Capt. Murphy was an engineer in an aircraft lab,
and he was quite frustrated by some wiring done by a technician.
“If there is any way to do it wrong, he will”
There was Murphy’s Law,
which has formed up
and aligned with past versions as
‘Whatever can go wrong will go wrong.’
the United States military is quite aware of Murphy’s Law.
The reason they train and they train and they train
is because when in combat,
pardon my military choice of words,
‘Everything’s going to go to shit.’
The generals know that Murphy is going to raise his head,
that equipment will malfunction,
that men will shoot the wrong way,
that war is hell…
war is chaos.
And the reason that they train
is so that once chaos has exploded,
the dazed and confused,
the wounded and the terrified beyond belief
will do something,
and that one act of discipline
will start to put order to the chaos.
Shot up and dying,
some fool is going to,
because of his constant drilling,
pick up his rifle
put a bullet in that rifle,
and the real battle,
who survives the aftermath of the onset of chaos,
will be commenced.
That’s a core reason
for doing your forms.
Not because they always work,
or even because,
in some odd situations,
a technique can be altered sufficient
to fit a moment,
but because when some fool
sneaks up behind you in an alley
and smashes a garbage can down on your head,
and you are lying there,
bloody and bruised,
somewhere inside you,
a discipline is going to say…
find a stance,
because you have worked your body to a frazzle with forms
and endless drills,
it is in good enough shape
to weather the chaos,
and actually do something.
You train for a thousand hours,
just to survive two seconds
I thought you guys and gals
would like a look
at what is really happening
when you are sweating,
your muscles are shaking,
and you have to go one more point,
one more round,
one more takedown.
There is a reason,
a good reason,
and it is based in
the trick is…
having the right drills
is going to make a world of difference
when it comes down to survival.
the right drills are at
Monster Martial Arts.
you knew that.
But the key is
though I give you lots of drills,
the real purpose of the Monster
is to help you fix your drills,
make them better,
align them with reality,
make them more logical.
Make the martial arts faster and more efficient,
and to cut your training time in serious half.
that all said,
here’s the URL
of the most drill intensive course I have…
I figured out Matrixing,
that is to say,
the big light went on
while I was putting together Matrix Kung Fu.
I had to figure out entry methods,
and a whole bunch of other things.
The result is a complete system
with a dozen different drills,
done one after another,
withe Matrix Kung Fu as the last course.
This is the fastest way to learn how to defeat chaos I’ve got.
I don’t think it replaces other systems,
but it is very urban survival.
Quick and fast,
and rock and roll.

Cool. I enjoy your commitment and candor. Your matrix aikido was fun to watch, especially in the light of my training and in spite of my training 😉 ~ John
Your words are perfect,
and a perfect way to start the rest of the week.
all you guys and gals,
have a wonderful week,
and make sure you work out every day!
