The What and How of Matrixing Martial Arts
Good Lard…it’s summer!
And absolutely perfect for learning another art.
So which art do you want to learn this summer?
A hard art to go with the soft?
Soft to go with the hard?
what else do you have to do?
And there is nothing else that is better for you.
every once in a while I like to go over what Matrixing is,
and suggested methods of study.
Matrixing is a system of logic.
It is based upon analyzing potential motion.
It is applicable to any art,
and to any system.
But here’s the thing…
the martial arts are put togethers.
As such they are conglomerations
of what worked for individuals.
But these are all based on what an individual prefers,
or works for his body,
or the culture he has grown up in,
and so on.
The result has been a lot of mystery,
which is hidden by calling it mysticism.
So if you apply matrixing to your martial art,
it becomes logical,
and thus easier to learn,
and there won’t be hidden spots.
No more mysticism.
Just hard core science.
That is matrixing in a nutshell.
You can find out a lot more about it
by subscribing to the newsletter,
and just thinking about how
it can be applied to your art.
recommended ways of studying matrixing.
Each course looks at the martial arts from a specific viewpoint,
from a specific art or concept.
If you have a specific weakness in your system,
or too hard,
or something like that,
you can just study the art that will take care of that weakness.
the logic on the art you study
will start to seep into the rest of your arts.
the best way to study is probably to just follow
the arts as they are listed on the site
Matrix Karate analyzes the hard arts and classical blocks.
Matrix Kung Fu analyzes locks and throws
Matrix Aikido analyzes learning by concept.
The Master Instructor Course analyzes the body
Shaolin Butterfly analyzes footwork
Butterfly Pa Kua Chang analyzes the transition from soft to hard
Five Army Tai Chi Chuan analyzes soft takedowns
And so on.
But each art can be taken apart by a sequence of matrixing courses.
If somebody wanted to learn karate,
and from the ground up,
I would recommend the following courses:
Outlaw Karate (inspiration)
Buddha Crane Karate (modular studies)
Matrix Karate Making the art pure)
Temple Karate (what old forms actually mean)
and so on.
So there are many ways to study matrixing.
But the fun of it all is this:
you learn multiple arts…fast.
Which is why I said,
at the beginning of this newsletter,
what do you want to learn this summer?
you could learn three or four whole martial arts
all within a year.
That would be a high state of mastery.
Here’s the Matrix Karate page,
because that is the one that started it all,
that is the one with some pretty crucial matrixing data on it.
Have a great summer,
with 100 work outs in a row,
and let me know how it goes with learning the art of your choice.
Have a great work out!
