Something You Should Know About Martial Arts
You’re going to have a great time,
you’ll be remembering the MA all your life,
you’ll be healthy,
when old people get alzheimer’s,
when other people are carrying oxygen tanks,
you’ll breath easy.
When they are in wheel chairs,
you’ll be spry.
The truth is…
you’re going to be feeling so freakin’ young
while everybody else grows old.
so think about it
and prepare yourself.
Your life is going to be great.
speaking of great things,
let me change subjects here
it’s that time of year.
Past years people have gotten upset
if you say Merry Xmas.
You’re supposed to go generic,
and not offend anybody.
OFFEND THEM ALL!
If it makes a difference to somebody
that you wish them well
in a manner they don’t like…
Wish them HanaKwanMass,
Hanukkah, Kwanza, Xmas.
Mix them together
and you’ll be able to offend everybody.
People who prefer Hanukkah
can get angry about Kwanza and Xmas,
People who prefer Kwanza
can get angry about Hanukkah and Xmas,
and people who prefer Xmas,
can get angry about Hanukkah and Kwanza.
You’re wishing everybody well,
but no matter who you say it to,
they get offended.
Pretty clever, eh?
I wish you a HanaKwanMass,
and if you don’t like it,
it’s your problem.
if you are offended,
the best way to get over it
is to work out.
Work out your angry,
work our your upset,
and know that working out,
know that the martial arts,
gives you calm and certainty,
makes you stable and friendly.
Martial Arts makes the world better.
Have a great work out!
Here is the obligatory ad,
it’s about matrixing the samurai sword.
go to the link,,
purchase a present for yourself,
and wish me a HanaKwanMass.
Here’s a great win from a previous Xmas…
hi sensei Al
Happy holiday workout to you…just wanted to say thank you for everything, it was a great first year with you and the matrix universe.
I enjoyed everything, the journey, the learning, the discovering and all. you are an amazing teacher of life. Honest to God, the world is a bit a better place because you are here. My life has definitely improved because of you. I think I even got a bit smarter if not wiser. Thank you! ;-))
Btw, I took the yogata course today, awesome, looks quite easy to learn and pragmatic. Exactly what I was looking for to get started. I want to implement it into my training syllabus. I am working on my karate form and blocks pretty much every day, on my blinding steel basics and matrix tai chi line every day. Nothing old discarded, the new will be incorporated to form a whole. After all, you designed it this way (grin). I read thru all the materials you gave me, bonuses and all, I filed and organized them neatly and work my way thru the concepts and discoveries. I love your scientific approach, cuts a lot of crap out. Thank you. I hope you are doing great and monkey land will thrive very soon. Do the world (and me, duh) a huge favor and turn your sword fighting books ASAP into an entire matrix kenjutsu course. ;-))
Happy Holiday workout and happy new year,
your biggest fan and student.
