Stages in ‘How to Fix Karate!’
Sales on ‘how to Fix Karate’ are picking up
and I thank you all.
With that in mind I should probably explain
a couple of things about the book(s).
If you haven’t got the books
this will still be interesting,
but…you need the books.
The book is big,
and it’s got a LOT of data in it.
But the basic principles are very simple.
the Pinans are taken apart,
every move is dissected for application,
and things that were missing are explained.
Things that were wrong are corrected.
But the Pinans are still random
and missing things.
Sure, there’s gold in them,
but when you look for workability
you look for two forms.
The first one is a Matrixing form
and it replaces Pinan one.
The second one is Sanchin.
I give you enough forms to make a system,
and to round you out as a martial artist,
but the essence is in those two forms.
Matrix One provides basics.
The Matrix of Blocks
makes those basics workable and intuitive.
The student gets a solid stance,
learns how the basics work,
and becomes strong.
He becomes like a tiger,
which is the animal symbol for karate.
Sanchin has been revised, too.
Yes, you get the power by sinking your stance,
but you don’t kill yourself
with blocks and getting beaten on.
You already learned the blocks in Matrix one,
you learn the real technique behind this form,
a slap and a grab function.
This is easier to learn than Matrix One
and the Matrix of Blocks,
but it won’t work without
the fundamental strength and blocks
of the matrixing form.
When you do the slap and the grab
you end up progressing naturally
into joint locks,
and secondary joint locks
and so on.
And it all works when you do
the freestyle method in the books!
So here’s the way to remember it,
Matrix One is like the Tiger
when done the way I do it,
is like the Dragon.
The freestyle methods
work from a distance,
to a closer distance
to a closer distance.
The trick is to learn how to shift
from one distance to another.
that is the simplicity of the method.
Not endless years
trying to learn forms which are missing pieces
or are ill arranged.
Not two separate arts,
freestyle and the forms.
Not a glut of forms.
Just a couple of forms,
with abundant secondary forms
to teach you
but not confuse you,
Not random techniques,
but a cold, hard logic
which can be learned in a couple of hours
and will change you into an intuitive monster
who can see what is coming
before it is even launched.
I hope this clears up
How to Fix Karate.
The book is massive,
and chock full of stuff,
but I wanted to give you this data
so you can better understand it,
and more easily learn from it.
