  1. Hi Al !
    I want to thank you for all the fantastic Matrix courses you are offering. The Matrixing process really speeds up learning and even helps with retention of the material as well. Al I am hoping that you would consider trying to Matrix a course on Hsing I (a.k.a. Xing Yi). Recently I have become particularly fascinated with the martial applications as well as the health benefits of the so-called Chinese internal arts. I really do appreciate that you have a Matrix course for both Tai Chi and Pakua (a.k.a. Baguazhang). I would love to see what you could do with Hsing I after the Matrixing process has been applied. Thanks again Al for all your efforts and good work. Please do consider the Hsing I Matrixing possibility —- thanks again :).



    • Hey Paul, thank you. I thought about Hsing i, but never got around to it because I read in a few places that it is similar to Karate, and I was already doing Karate. But, maybe I should rethink, or find someone who knows Hsing i and wants to matrix it. Again, thanks, and have a great work out! Al

      • It’s a shame Robert Smith is no longer with us. He did a couple of books on Hsing I. I have read those and your Karate does look like Hsing I.

        • Robert Smith wrote all the original books way back when, a real pioneer. I used to pore over his books…such a brilliant man. Al

  2. Paul,

    Hsing Yi already comes Matrixed… well at least the begining 5 element portion of Hsing Yi;-)

    Not to send bus. away from Sifu Al but Mike Patterson has some good, although short in duration, Hsing Yi instructional tapes IMO. I’m not ashamed to say I learned my 5 element fist from his tapes in the early 90’s as my Chinese teacher wasn’t teaching me anything except post standing and how to a be punching and throwing dummy.

    Karate with Hsing Yi influence???

    IMHO Matrix Karate has more Hsing Yi in it than the late Robert Triases Shuri Karate! I can see seemless KDW Karate, Aikido, Pa Kwa, Uechi ryu Seisan and Tai Chi principles combined in Sifu Al’s Matrix Karate. Combine Matrix Karate with Monkey Boxing and you have a much more workable and concise Kenpo art then either Tracy’s or EP Kenpo.

    My top 10 Kenpo Arts List- 1 is the Kenpo art Most Easily Learned/Most Combative and 10 has some problems: Lucy, we gots a Classical mess on our hands;-)

    1. Combined Al Case Matrix Karate & Monkey Boxing (Kun Tao Kenpo Jujutsu anyone;-)
    2. Robert Trias Shuri ryu karate and Kosho Shuri Ryu Kenpo (Trias was a student of James
    Mitose too)
    3. Kajukenbo
    4. Sampai Kenpo (tough fighters and I saw them practice sanchin and tensho katas too)
    5. Shoto-kenpo (can anyone say Benny the Jet)
    6. James Ibrao’s Hung gar Kenpo
    7. Ed Parker Gen. 5 Slap Kenpo
    8. West Coast Shaolin Kenpo
    9. East Coast Shaolin Kenpo
    10. Tracy Kenpo (they HIRED all of their best fighters away from other schools back in the day)…

    But if you want to learn how to make money the Tracy Brothers are your go to guys!!! Ed Parker should have really listened to them as his bus. skills were not too good- sometimes luck is more important than skill and EP was lucky to have his early school in Pasadena.

    BTW Will Tracy was super cool to me when I was visiting and training in CA (JKD/Kali, Ninjutsu and Hapkido) in the 80’s.

    • Yes, the Hsing I basic moves seem very well thought out. Now if they could expand that matrixed look to the rest of the system they would really have something! Al

  3. Greetings and salutations everyone!

    I want to thank you Brian for the information concerning Hsing I. I will certainly be sure to check out Mike Patterson’s instructional materials. Jerome I really appreciate you mentioning Robert Smith. In my opinion Robert Smith was one of the first western martial art authors to open the door of knowledge regarding perhaps lesser known eastern martial art systems. I can honestly write that Robert Smith’s books were really helpful to me as an introduction to Chinese based martial arts. I do agree with Sifu Al that Robert Smith was one of the great early pioneers in the dissemination and study of varied martial art traditions. Sifu Al thank you for creating this site and sharing your wisdom! I do really appreciate and thank you all for your insightful and helpful commentaries —- thanks!

  4. Hello (again) all!
    Just a quick question regarding Hsing I training materials. I recently came across some older video to DVD training showing James McNeil originally on Panther Video now sold through Century Martial Arts. I am unfamiliar with James McNeil’s work and I was hoping that someone might be able to offer insight or an experienced opinion concerning these training aids. Thank you (again) everyone for your input.

    Sifu Al I want to thank you (again) for all your matrixing courses. I am especially enjoying the Five Army Tai Chi course! I feel that I have gotten a much better understanding of the physics and practical application behind the traditional movements of Tai Chi Chaun — thank you!

  5. Hi Paul & Sifu Al,

    Patterson & McNeil had the same Hsing-Yi Taiwanese instructor. I had McNeil’s videos on VHS and as I can not find them in any of my storage boxes so I guess that like about 80% of my personalables there were destroyed in Hurrican Rita.

    From what I remember McNeil’s Hsing-yi was a little more “formless” and free-flowing. But M. Patterson won many full-contact contests/tournaments as a teenager in Taiwan. Patterson has also produced many personal students who have won in Full-Contact Taiwanese fighing -very often in fact.

    In reality Paul you can’t go wrong with eithers videos but I actually PREFER Patterson’s shorter length 5-element Instructional video.

    Sifu Al is all too correct in that once you get past the 5-element fist training many systems of Hsing-Yi become typically kungfuey with many forms…

    Hi Al,

    Please add me to newsletter list. I am certain I will enjoy reading it.

    Thank you kindly ,

    Hey I was wondering if you have any books on the 8 immortals technique… I’m so desperately wanting to learn “drunking fist boxing”

  8. Hey Al …

    If I buy one of your books and toss it in the bookcase along with 30 minute Abs, will I be an MMA heavyweight?

    • Heck, if you can benchpress a bookshelf filled with my books you’ll be the heavyweight champion of the world…even if you only weigh 130 pounds!


    • Hi Arthur, not sure when I will complete. Started the research, then got sidetracked on several projects: putting matrixing and other arts in real books, making a matrix for kenpo, and so on. Still, I’m fast, so I’m hoping within six months. If it doesn’t show up in the newsletter, nudge me. Al

  10. Shifu Al, I just wanted to say thanks to you and to let everyone know your Matrix Teachings really work! I’ve been out of touch for the last 3 years because I’ve been living in Zhengzhou, Henan China studying Baguazhang and Taijiquan, and well my internet sucked. The lessons I learned from you helped me to advance much quicker than the other students that my Shifu taught. I’ve just moved backed to the states and am now living and teaching kung fu in Minneapolis MN. If anyone has any questions or concerns about your program, they can shoot me a message and I’ll be glad to tell them how Matrix can benefit them. One of your proud Master Instructors and 7th Generation Lineage Holder in Liang Shi Baguazhang, Robert Pettit.

  11. I am INTERESTED! ..have studied, attended & been a member of Yoshinkan Aikido & Pukalan Cimande Pukasa Silat….have studied up on the Grandfather arts of Aikido ,namely …Pa kua / Tai chi /Chin na …etc.

  12. I eally like looking through an article that can make men and
    women think. Also, tthanks for permitting me to comment!

    my web blog …

  13. These are an excellent way to help children learn discipline, self-control,
    self-esteem, respect, and mental consciousness. Their adult classes are
    rigorous yet fun, giving working people a stress reliever activity that gives
    mental and physical benefits. As an added benefit of training you get
    back home with a much better frame of mind and
    have more focus.

  14. it was really a gud lesson

  15. Hello:
    What exactly is Matrixing ?
    What is it? How is it done? And how can it be a useful, helpful tool to learn and teach a MA ? Which of your publications can teach me how to do it for myself?

  16. i would love to prescribe to your news letter

  17. Wonderful web site. Plenty of helpful info here.
    I’m sending it to a few pals ans also sharing in delicious.

  19. I would like to know a costa of Family package.



  20. Woh I like your posts, saved to bookmarks!

  21. Thanks for finally writing about > – < Liked it!

  22. There is obviously a lot to realize about this. I feel you made various nice points in features also.

  23. I saw where you had written about Kenpo. Most people are unaware that Professor Chow’s best friend was Bill Chun Sr. Mister Chun is the only person who carried on Professor Chow’s legacy. His son, Bill Chun Jr. is currently carrying on the tradition. Check out his website. You may even want to contact him for an interview.

  24. Dear Sir,
    I recently read an article from , written by Al Case, that spoke of you and your concepts/approach and philosophy. I applaud your approach redirecting the mysticism of martial arts, and seeing the perfection and dedication to motion as the ultimate challenge. I would ask one simple question and I am very interested in your response so I may learn. Is not the ultimate purpose an any martial art recognition and avoidance of all evil which often involves physical conflict? My Masters Thesis Paper entitled: “The Perceived Positive Effects of Traditional Martial Arts Instruction” approaches many areas of education and may offer an interesting read for you. You may find my paper on
    Randy Miskech
    A Humble student of Martial Arts.

    • Hi Randy, the ultimate purpose of the martial arts is to avoid a force or flow while delivering a force or flow. That is the game entire.
      I’ll check out your paper, thanks for the heads up.
      Have a great work out!
      Al Case
