What is My Black Belt Worth? Asks Beavis…

Newsletter 892

Why Do I Need a Black Belt from You…

Thanks to all who have purchased
The Biggest Martial Arts Lesson of All!
It’s available on Amazon.
I’ll be putting up links and ads for it
one of these days.

Hey,
I’m not good at social media,
but I was trying to figure it out the other day,
and came across a site
with a lot of bad things to say about me.
I usually laugh at these things,
they’re always written by people
who have never taken a course,
but have an opinion.

For whatever reason,
maybe the desire for abuse,
I read a couple of the ‘complaints.’
And, man,
I got a good one.

‘Why do I need a black belt from you
if I already have one?’

Man,
unfortunately,
the complaint was old,
no way to really respond,
and I actually did want to respond.
My answer would have been:

because your system is probably flawed,
because you monkey see and monkey do learned
without understanding what you are doing.

Look,
I respect that the guy has probably put in some work,
maybe even a few years,
endured some bruises and such,
but he’s basically working at 10%
if he doesn’t know the reasons behind what he is doing.
The unfortunate news is
he wasn’t asking seriously,
he wasn’t seeking,
he was just being a Beavis and Butthead type of guy,
smart mouthing me.

That’s the trouble,
you see.
People want to argue without the facts.
You see it in politics.
The idiot who says things like:
‘You’re a racist,’
when there is NO hint of racism.
Or starts calling people names,
when you ask for the facts.

There is just a s segment of the population,
and this is true of the whole world,
that wants to be heard,
without taking the time to learn anything beforehand.

And,
this is true in the martial arts.
‘Al is bad,
you can’t make a black belt
in less than three years!’

But,
you can,
I’ve got video proof,
but they don’t take the time to see the proof,
they just want to be heard.

Ever hear that old saw?
‘Those who speak do not know,
those who know do not speak.’

That says it all.

Now,
for anybody who DOES want the proof,
who DOES wish to seek out the true martial arts…

Matrix Karate puts order in Karate
(and the martial arts)
MonsterMartialArts.com

There is a COMPLETE course of classical karate
KangDukWon.com.

There is video proof on the three month black belt course
(120 lessons!)
MonsterMartialArts.com

And,
if you can’t afford the SMALL sum asked,
you could always look through my books for proof.

Outlaw Karate: The Secret of the One Year Black Belt,
and many others…

And,
you could simply read my blog,
alcase.wordpress.com,
do a search for the term Master Instructor,
or other related terms,
you will come up with TONS of testimonials,
actual case histories,
if you will,
written by the people who have done the courses,
people who didn’t voice an opinion,
but went looking for the truth.

The truth is scientific.
It can’t be argued with.
But it can be ignored,
unfortunately,
it is usually ignored by those who ‘write’ the loudest.

Okay,
have a FANTASTIC DAY!
and a great work out!

Release of Ten Volume Martial Arts Masterpiece of Wisdom

Newsletter 891

The Biggest Martial Arts Lesson of All Released!!!

Been busy,
keeping my head low and working on the martial arts,
and came up with a TEN VOLUME series.
That’s right, TEN volumes.
That’s a lot of writing.

In fact,
that is about 1500 pages,
700+ chapters,
320,000 words!
That’s a lot.

It is called,
‘The Biggest Martial Arts Lesson of All.’

It is based on the original 500 articles,
which I used to sell on Monster,
but which went out of print,
mainly because I had so many more than 500 articles.

The books have been divided into approximately 25 sections.
Karate, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, Chi Power, Matrixing,
lots of chapters.
You can see which volume has which chapters
by searching on Amazon
and reading the descriptions.

Now,
you can get a cheap kindle version,
about five of them i am letting go on kindle for $.99.
Low price to encourage sales.
the other 5 are $4.99.

I recommend the paperbacks,
which are still inexpensive
at only $9.99 a piece.
The reason the paperbacks are so much better
is that kindle has a real rough time with formatting.
But,
up to you.

And,
if you would,
I need some five star reviews.
If you have a PDF of the original 500 articles,
you are qualified to leave a review.
And if you buy,
please say kind things.
If you are going to give me unkind things,
or less than five stars,
fugetit.

So,
in these TEN VOLUMES
you are going to get the pearls and priceless wisdom
that result from 50 years in the martial arts.
Laughers on who is better,
Michael Jackson or Bruce Lee,
training tips like
how to master light kung fu,
the correct way to power up your punch,
developing kicks that will knock over surly elephants.
and histories like
the real story of the Shaolin Temple,
tales of forgotten masters,
and so on.

Look with 700+ chapters,
you could read a chapter a day,
and it would only take you two years
to become thoroughly enlightened.

Or you could take the short cut,
read them overnight
and be enlightened by tomorrow morning.

So,
go get it,

‘The Biggest Martial Arts Lesson of All.’

It’s in ten volumes,
it’s on Amazon,
(publishing is in process,
so it may take a couple of days for some of the volumes),
or if you want to send me more of a commission,
it’s available on Createspace.

Okey dokey!
Thanks,
and go for it.

A great work out to you!

The Limit of Mixed Martial Arts

Newsletter 890

The Limits of MMA

I’m a big fan of MMA.
I am a critic,
however,
of those who believe that MMA is the only way,
who would speak ill of karate, kung fu, or any other art.
MMA is just a piece of the bigger pie,
a piece of the bigger martial arts
which includes all martial arts.
Which bigger art,
thanks to matrixing,
makes sense and is easily learned.

So,
I was teaching the other night,
got a kid who was a wild hair.
Now,
the kid is actually not bad.
He can freestyle,
and he can grapple,
but he can’t control his body.
Isn’t that interesting?
He’s actually a black belt.
Not a bad one,
but he can’t control his body,
and here is where we come to the limits of MMA,
and the tragedy of this particular martial artist.

When he learned jujitsu
his teaching stopped at the techniques of jujitsu.
So he learned how to freestyle,
to fill the gap.
To be competent both in fisticuffs and grappling.

So I asked him to do a simple move.
Something like a block and punch.
He mouthed off,
sulked,
laughed,
and looked like garbage when he finally tried the simple move.

His attitude was:
I know how to fight
so I don’t need to know that stuff.

So his art stops at flesh contact.
That was the art he learned,
jujitsu,
and when there is no flesh contact,
no wrestling,
he doesn’t know what to do.

What about his ability to fight?
All he can do is kick and punch,
destroy,
and while there is an art to destruction,
it is not the true art.

The true art lies in control.

To the degree that you can control your body…
AND OTHER BODIES
to that degree you have the true art.

To the degree that you canNOT control your body…
AND OTHER BODIES
to that degree you do not have the true art.

He can control his own body in the limits of wrestling.
He can control his body if it comes to kick and punch.
He CANNOT control another person’s body.

And here is a subtle but determining factor.
If you practice MMA,
without recourse to classical arts,
you practice beating people,
not controlling them.
And that puts a severe limit
on what you know
and what you can learn.
MMA is great,
but you have to know how to get beyond that one limit.

So I asked the kid to punch me.
He couldn’t.
Every time he tried to punch me I would simply shift,
slap his hand aside,
and control his body.

Then,
I applied a grab art,
tied him up,
took him down,
and said:

‘Would you like to be able to control other people like that?
Would you like to know the simple tricks I use?
It’s easy,
but you’ll have to work hard,
and you’ll have to think.’

He mouthed off,
sulked,
laughed,
and made himself scarce.

His attitude was:
I know how to fight
so I don’t need to know that stuff.

In spite of the fact that I had just proved it worked.

And here is the tragedy,
in a nutshell,
the whole thing of what was wrong with the kid,

He was scared of what he didn’t know.

He was scared of learning something.
Heck,
if he learned something,
it would prove that he didn’t know everything.
Can’t have that, eh?

And that’s true,
to a degree,
of almost every child,
and even of every adult.

I don’t want to learn
because it will prove I don’t know something.

I CAN’T HAVE MY IGNORANCE SEEN!

So,
the kid hangs around the dojo,
marginally useful,
as long as the task is simple,
but you can’t trust him to do any teaching,
as teaching is merely a way
for him to be dominant (read bully),
and prove to the world
that he knows something,
even though he doesn’t.
He only knows shadows,
and the light eludes him.

Here’s the true education right here.

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/4-master-instructor-course/

How to have PERFECT form in seven simple steps.
How to have PERFECT techniques in six simple steps.
This knowledge is so powerful that people read it
and are totally changed.

Have you ever experienced something that was so true
it simply changed you?
A blink,
and you were different.
That’s what this stuff is.

have a GREAT work out!

End of Martial Arts…Beginning of Creation

Newsletter 889

How Matrixing Brings Arts Together

School’s started for many,
so,
you students,
are you going to get a Matrix course,
have it done by summer?
Or even Christmas?

I have a LOT of good letters.
Just got the following,
and it really made my day.
Kurt has been a long time student of matrixing,
taken his time and done it right.
Here go…

Al,
Its been a while since I texted last. Back in January of this year I received the Create Your Own Art package. I finally completed it this week. The reason for spending so much time on it wasn’t one of laziness, I actually spent several hours on it every week. Once I received the package and viewed the Intercepting Fist segment I became intrigued and practiced and viewed it over and over again. Then when I viewed the Pa Kua disc, it really hit home how Matrixing came into play. As a result of this, I had to dig out the Butterfly Pa Kua disc and of course saw how the Ten Hands mimicked the Matrixing of the Intercepting Fist, it really hit home to me. I have been circle walking utilizing the 8 Animal Pa Kua for at least 2 years now and have found all the applications of my core art of Kenpo, in the Butterfly applications as well as the Intercepting Fist Circle walking. Of course this led me to take apart 5 Army Tai Chi and Matrix Tai Chi and find the same applications.

So I’ve spent the last 10 months practicing, experimenting, and rediscovering in the name of Creating My Own Art. And after all this I decided that I cannot create what has already been created. The best I could do is re-organize what already is. The Taoist Arts(Tai Chi, Bagua, Hsing I) have been around for a long time, and in the case of Tai Chi, (possibly the Mother of all Martial Arts), over 1500 years.

While Practicing with a friend, who has limited use of his left shoulder as result of an injury, I saw that he could not do the Intercepting Fist, or a simple Hi block or inverted block with that arm. Utilizing Pa Kua(Bagua) I was able to show him how to execute a circle walking direction turn and do a hi block with his good arm. he was elated and I was very full of myself! It was then that I decided to not create my own art but instead to re-task what I have learned as to fit the needs of people with limitations due to injury or handy-cap. I mean Dr. Paul Lam has done very well teaching Tai Chi to ease the pain of Arthritis. And many others teach Tai Chi to improve balance and range of motion in seniors. So this is my new calling and I attribute it to the Create Your Own Art Program. For this I thank you. It has really improved my skills and ability and hopefully I can help others as a result.

Finally,  I would like to add that the only thing missing from my practice of the Internal Arts is Hsing I Chuan. I have had some exposure to that art but have found (at my age) that learning the 5 element forms as well as the 12 Animal forms would be a bit much. However, I do see a need for more linier attack and defense. So, taking inspiration from Matrix Tai Chi, I developed 8 short “lines”, by which I walk
a straight line, performing each of the Pa Kua animals 8 times forward, starting turning slightly left, step turn slightly right and so forth for 8 steps, them kick and pivot 180 degrees and do the same stepping back to the starting  point, kick and pivot the perform the next animal(start with Butterfly Palm. Step the line changing palm left the, right etc.). It can also be done as a two man form, one advancing the other retreating. One attacking the other defending. This kind of rounded things out for me(if you’ll pardon the pun).

In closing, I apologize for the length of this email but after 9 months of this course of study I am very enthusiastic! But basically it boils down to me saying thanks!

Respectfully, Kurt A. Nelle’

Thank you, Kurt.
And for everybody,
Matrixing is quick,
you have realizations like crazy,
but it sets the stage for
some really long term learning.
At the end you understand
how the arts fit together.
You become able to shift from art to art,
create art as you need it.

There are just so-o-o many things you can do,
once you jump the fence,
put aside your limits,
and realize that there is nothing stopping you,
except your own self.

Matrixing opens the door.

Thanks Kurt,
and well done on your desire to help others.
That is the REAL art.

Martial Arts Punch Lines, and a hard truth.

Newsletter 888

Martial Arts Punch Lines (get it?)

Happy Labor Day!
I think I’ll labor at the martial arts today.

A quick word,
I had inadvertently taken my list of courses off the site.
This is the full list,
so examine the left sidebar on the Monster,
everything is there.

Now,
came across these little gems,
thought I would share…

You’re not outnumbered,
you’re target rich.

When people ask me what I do for a living:
‘I teach people how to maim and kill.’

Bruises are really just temporary tattoos.

Kung Fu has been curing ADHD
since 500 AD

For my birthday
I want pound cake and punch.

violence isn’t always the answer,
but it sure is an option

the best part of a joke is the punch line.

Okay.
Nuff frivolity.
Let’s get serious.

It is true,
a picture is worth a thousand words.
and,
that being true,
a video is worth a thousand thousand words.
But,
here’s the cruel truth…
you still have to understand what the words mean.

I remember when Karate first hit the shores,
the Japanese said:
‘it will take an American three lifetimes to understand the martial arts.’
And,
that’s true,
if you don’t understand the words.

For me,
chi was the big mysterious.
Thought about it,
tried to figure it out,
made no sense.
Then I started looking up words like:
energy,
force,
spirit,
intention,
will power,
and so on.
And,
suddenly,
it all made sense.

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=uM1ubDwUxa4

Tell me I don’t understand chi.
Heck,
I can project it outside my body.
You know the funny thing?
I wish somebody had told me
the power of understanding words
back when I was 19.
I would be moving cars,
not just putting out candles.
All my training would have changed,
gone in a different direction.

The power of words.

So,
here’s the whole story…

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/2f-matrixing-the-master-text/

How I came up with matrixing,
the evolution,
arts studied,
and so on.
All you have to do is understand the words.
But don’t worry,
I’ve included a few pictures to help you out.
Grin.

Okay,
have a great bunch of work outs this labor day.

And,
BTW
GO TEXAS!
To the degree that people rally round,
to the degree that government sits on the sidelines,
to that degree Texas comes back.

have a GREAT work out!

Kenpo, Karate, Kung Fu, Destroyed by the Information Here…

Newsletter 887

Things that Destroy Karate, Kung Fu and Aikido

Good hot afternoon!
109 degrees out here in la la land,
and we have two choices:
hide in air conditioning,
or…
WORK OUT!

I opted to work out,
the rest of this day is going to be SOO-O-O cool.

Okay,
things that destroy Karate, Kung Fu, Aikido,
or ANY other martial art.

Building reaction time.
Which means feeding the concept of ‘muscle memory.’
Muscle memory is a psychological concept,
and it means that you think you have to train your body,
much the way Pavlov trains a dog.
Think about that when your grandma
shuffles up behind you
taps you on the shoulder,
and you spin around and chop her frail old head off.
Her head lies,
bloody and cock-eyed,
staring up at you in hurt and dismay
while her body crumples into a pile,
and you did it all out of ‘muscle memory,’
knee jerk reaction.
This type of thought is based on the idea
that there is no you,
that there is only your body,
and you don’t have to be aware of what you are doing.
Or responsible.

Whenever I find a student building ‘muscle memory,’
I tell them what a circuit is,
then I begin changing their training
so that they realize they must have choice.
They must be aware,
and able to choose from options.

Another thing that kills Kung Fu, Taekwondo, Kenpo,
or ANY other martial art,
is fantasy.
The student is taught to fantasize their movements
as a destructive dance,
where hordes fall beneath their lightening fists.
Yikes!
The danger here is that fantasy is not reality.
When I see a student falling in love with fantasies,
or false realities,
I elect myself as their dummy
and keep injecting things like
punches in the middle of their deadly dances.
Why doesn’t my fantasy work? They moan,
rubbing their chests tenderly.
Try looking at reality,
I cheerfully offer.

Probably one of the most terrible things
that REALLY destroys the martial arts,
such as Jujitsu, Tai Chi Chuan, and Shaolin,
is the simple lack of relaxation.
People seek power,
and ignore the spaces between the techniques.
They never learn to see the hidden techniques,
and they become seduced by
power (domination)
muscles (image)
and other things.
The simple fact of learning to relax
while doing the martial arts,
will do miracles.
In fact,
all the tricks of the ancient masters
become obvious and easy.
You learn to unbalance others with a breath,
to strike with a finger
and leave a coconut-sized bruise.

Anyway,
think about it,
and think about the seven corrections
in the Master Instructor course.
These are the seven things you have to do
if you are going to have perfect form.
These seven things are so powerful
that people just read them,
and their art is changed.
They simply can’t do their art wrong anymore,
not when they know the right way to do things.

Okey fiddley dokey.

New PMAT, and What Happened to Louse Up the Martial Arts!

Newsletter 886

New Professional Martial Arts Instructor!

Congrats to Professional Martial Arts Instructor…
Michael Guthrie
Here’s Michael’s win…

Thank you Al.

I appreciate the fact that this was a difficult test and that you set it up to insure that the knowledge would be legitimately understood.
Your test was by far more complicated and way more detailed than the American Sport Associations. I didn’t even study for their ‘Martial Arts Trainer’ certification and passed it with flying colors. It was obviously about the $99 fee, as it was just way to easy and it was clear that they do not care about actual knowledge. Which in my mind is dangerous. Thankfully, I decided not to pay the fee after the test….I wanted something that was legitimate and required real knowledge. You supplied that and if people want a legitimate certification process, concerning the martial arts, they should definitely take your course.

Thank You Shihan

Michael Guthrie

Thank you,
Michael.
One more person sharing the true art.

What is a true art?
One that doesn’t wobble,
where all the techniques fit together,
where the teacher actually understands what he is teaching.

Do you know how many people don’t actually know what they are teaching?
They simply do a move and have the student copy cat it.
They don’t know why the knee should be high on a kick,
or how to sink the weight on a technique,
or the seven secrets that will create perfect form.
The reason for this is simple.

Back the sixties people,
for the most part,
did understand why they were doing.
They read books on zen,
they were taught basic engineering principles in school,
they were not confused by a society filled with drugs and electronics.
Simply,
they could focus,
and focus well enough to ask questions,
and then to figure out the answer.
Then bad things happened.
I remember seeing these things first hand,
and on several fronts.

In 1969 I was at a tournament.
A white belt sat in a corner, and I heard his sensei tell him to just run across the ring and start punching.
So he did.
Didn’t know any karate,
but he knew how to fight,
so he won,
and karate died.
Over the years I saw this attitude infect tournaments
on all levels.

I opened a school,
taught a bunch of kids,
that was okay,
except that they needed to be entertained.
You couldn’t hand them a gentle knuckle sandwich
to prove a technique didn’t work.
You had to worry about self esteem
and parents that were unwilling to let their child experience life.
Over the years this attitude has gotten worse and worse,
until kids feel there are no consequences,
and only want to be entertained.
These kids don’t have the work ethic required to earn anything worthwhile.
They just need their teacher/parent/boss to pat them on the head.
Mind controlled zombies
with never a serious question.
That’s our educational system.

And other things like these happened,
the result is martial artists
that want to fight,
but can’t control their body.
I’m serious in this,
I try to teach these kids a simple form,
and they spin in circles,
jump up and down,
talk, talk, talk,
and don’t come back.

No focus,
no concentration,
no work ethic.

And,
that’s the kind of thing
that has happened to the martial arts in this country.

Now,
interesting thing,
do you know
how head and shoulders you are
above these poor monkeys?

You ordered a matrixing course,
you became intrigued by matrixing,
you actually want to learn something,
you’re thinking.
You’re not a mindless monkey,
copy catting some poor dufus who is,
himself,
a mindless monkey.

Now,
look,
I am NOT speaking harshly of these misguided souls
who have become society.
I am merely pointing out where they are,
what is wrong,
and advising them to do something about it.

And I am complimenting you,
thanking you.
Having taken a matrixing course
from MonsterMartialArts.com,
you ARE a real martial artist.
You’ll not only be a great fighter,

Martial Artist runs into Master Instructor Course and Something Interesting Happens…

Newsletter 885

New Master Instructor!

Congrats to Master Instructor…
Fred Cook!

Here’s Fred’s win…

I found your website and it peaked my interest, I was skeptical though, as the claims were very dramatic and I’ve been a martial artist 29 years and a teacher for 24 of that in multiple disciplines. I figured, I’d pick up a few tips maybe to improve my toolset and all would be good….I….was…Naïve!!!

The old adage, “The more you learn, the more you understand how little you knew,” fully applies here! You see, I was first an assistant instructor, then made a full instructor after 2 years of assisting…it was like trying to learn to swim by being tossed in the deep end of the pool. What your course did was TOTALLY rock my world and adjust my ways of thinking as a teacher…this was truly mind altering stuff and so much quality data, that by the end of it, I sat there quiet…just contemplating everything…..like everything…

Not only was the course immediately jarring and enlightening, but it was simple enough that as the Geico commercials used to say “A caveman could do it.” If anything, you have dramatically understated what you’ve offered in this course. So…what did I learn from this course?

• I learned what makes an art true and why, including how to put together the four facets into a cohesive element.
• I learned more about rooting/grounding than I had in 10 years of Bak Sil Lum, but was expected to know in for lohan Chuan and Baji Chaun.
• I learned the three rules, which other than politeness, I’d never heard before, yet were so simple, as if they were hidden right under my nose the whole time!
• I learned the true meaning of the yin/yang.
• I learned how to teach, so that I didn’t overwhelm a student with data and send them packing. I especially liked the breakdown of teaching a sequence then the bunkai and having the student attempt to ascertain the application so that they feel like they own the technique…BRILLIANT!
• I learned the seven corrections to teach and attain perfect form
• I learned the 2 purposes of the legs and the purpose of a strike….this was exceptional btw!
• I learned the six tools, which I’ve already applied to a dozen of so techniques and have improved from doing so. This alone makes the course worth twice the price!

To say that I learned more from this course than 20 plus years of study, practice and teaching would be a DRASTIC understatement. You have completely changed my view of so much and have in fact made me 10 x’s the instructor that I was….Thank you sir…

If you need to ask any questions on what I’ve garnered from the course before sending me a certificate, feel free anytime sir.

Thank you, Fred.
Your win is fantastic.
I thank you.

Now,
I know there is a small question coming up.
I offer two courses,

The Master Instructor Course,
The Professional Matial Arts Instructor Course.
What’s the difference?

Good question.

The Master Instructor Course gives the overview,
gives the data,
then the student has to apply it.
It is designed for the fellow
with lots of experience,
or who has at least gone through previous matrixing courses
at Monster Martial Arts.
It is more suited for the dojo.

The Professional Martial Arts Instructor
uses the data of the Master Instructor Course,
but it goes through the moves of the martial arts,
basics, forms, techniques,
everything,
one right after another,
showing fixes for common problems.
It is more suited for teaching in gyms, health clubs, and so on.
It is designed to help people get started teaching MA outside the dojo.

Neither is best,
you just have to figure out which is best for you.
What do you want to do in life?
Are you going to stay in the dojo?
Are you going to head to YMCAs,
fitness centers,
and so on.

Here’s an example of the differences between the courses.

A fellow who takes the Master Instructor course
is given the seven principles of perfect form.
It is up to him to inspect the student,
and see which of the seven principles is out.
This can be tough,
especially if more than one principle is out
stylist interpretations must be made,
and so on.

On the other hand,
a fellow who takes the Professional MA Instructor course
will inspect someone’s form,
he will see,
for instance,
that the student is getting insufficient impact from his front snap kick.
He picks out the correct drill
to help the student fix his form.

You see?
The MI course assumes the instructor is experienced.
The PMAI course doesn’t assume,
and goes through the moves and techniques of the martial arts,
giving hints and fixes galore.

Two different approaches.

I will say that I wrote the PMAI course
to help people break into martial arts teaching.
It can be hard to put the money together for a school,
to survive until the student base is large enough,
sometimes people don’t make it.

On the other hand,
it is easy to get started as a private instructor,
if you get the gym owner to believe in you.
A certificate as a Professional Martial Arts Trainer will help.

I used to charge $100 an hour.
This was back in the eighties.
Helped me get started when I moved to Los Angeles.
People would hand me a check for $500 for five lessons,
it really made my day.

So what you do is up to you,
I’m just trying to give everybody enough options
to make the martial arts a viable career.

You can earn a black belt through the Matrix Karate course,
or other courses.
This is excellent for people with some training,
who want to go all the way,
but just need the data.

Then there is the KangDukWon.com course,
for those who want to go through the traditional training.

Options.
That’s all.

That all said,
Fred picked the option that is excellent for him.
He already has much experience.
You can check out his website here…

(I hope its okay I put this link up, I didn’t ask permission, sorry, Fred.)

So,
again,
thank you,
Master Instructor Fred Cook.

And for all,
here is the Master Instructor Course link,

First Professional Martial Arts Instructor in History!

Newsletter 884

First Professional Martial Arts Instructor!

Congrats to Professional Martial Arts Instructor…
Lonnie Muhammad!

Lonnie managed to ace the test with a 94.7% score.
Man,
well done!

Lonnie is an old matrixing student,
He was one of the first fellows to get on board,
when MonsterMartialArts.com got started some ten years ago.
I remember him well because
he was teaching self defense to security personnel.
He was using Matrix Aikido and Monkey Boxing techniques
way back then.

Here is his win from way back then…

Mr. Case;
I wanted to let you know that the courses did arrive just before Xmas.  Needless to say, I haven’t been able to spend enough time yet with them.  You know something:  just 5 minutes into the Aikido dvd (which I threw in right away to make sure the dvds were working), I felt as if I had been hit with 2 YEARS of training in the aiki/jujutsu arts.
I conducted a Matrix Aikido training class for a Security Team at a local manufacturing plant. I tailored the training according to their Use Of Force policy. As you know they need control and takedown skills. I knew Matrix Aikido would be the answer. The training plan you shared was boss. The class went so smoothly. The participants learned very quickly. By the end of the class you could see techniques of Monkey Boxing coming through. They were also able to create their own techniques. There was one female officer in the class who asked to become my private student. She was throwing, locking and taking down guys twice her size. The Security Supervisor wants me to come back and with more participants! I’ll keep you posted.
Lonnie

Again,
incredibly well done, Lonnie.
Thank you.

Now,
for all you guys and gals reading this,
and thinking about teaching martial arts,
being a Professional Martial Arts Instructor
will give you a considerable edge
when teaching martial arts.
You can walk into any company,
any health club,
anywhere,
and you have the certificates to back up your knowledge.
Your knowledge has been proven by actual test.

And,
if you have ordered
The Professional Martial Arts Instructor book
you can take the test for free.
it’s part of the deal when you buy the book.
You just have to email me at aganzul@gmail.com
and ask to take the test.

To let you know,
I am still putting the test into digital format,
so I still have to email you the test,
you take it and email it back,
and I then grade it.

If you don’t pass,
you’ll have your mistakes,
you can study and take the test again.
No problem.

This isn’t me scamming for money
by charging huge amounts of money
to take and retake tests
and all that.
This is me validating people who are serious about the martial arts,
in a way that will benefit them
career wise,
financially,
or just in the area of achieved knowledge.
People who know what the martial arts are all about
who know the real reasons behind the martial arts,
are MUCH better martial artists.
They shine.
So,
write me if you have read the book and are ready.

OR…
get the book and get the real knowledge,
and get ready to take the PMAT test.

AND…
if you have any doubts,
you can go here and take a sample of the test…

http://www.martialartsinstructortraining.com/certification-quiz/

I’l tell you right now,
you probably won’t score too well,
most people don’t,
but that’s the point of it all,
to find out what you don’t know,
and get you to know it.

I tell you this…
knowledge is the most precious commodity in the universe.
And,
the martial arts have been taught
monkey see monkey do
for so long,
that the knowledge is confuzzled,
bemused and idiocratic.

So hit that link,
find out if you know anything,
and get started on the path of VERIFIED knowledge.

No more fakers who talk a good game,
a fellow with a PMAT certificate is PROVEN!
He is one smart cookie,
and that’s the truth.
Lonnie will attest to that!

Have a great work out!

Linking Martial Arts Forms to Expand Your Art by Ten Times…

Newsletter 883

Interlinking Martial Arts Forms

Here’s an interesting little trick for you,
one that will open your eyes and expand your art by ten…

I did Kenpo back in 67,
I noticed right away that the forms
were built simple to complex.
Actually,
simple to hard to understand.

You learned your basics with the first two forms,
then everything went haywire,
the forms were lists of techniques,
no real logic behind the sequence of the forms,
or even the relationship of the forms to themselves.
Mind you,
it was fun,
but it was HARD to really learn anything.
You ended up just memorizing,
and doing the martial arts like a dance.

Then I went to the Kung Duk Won
learned the classic Karate forms.
It was still a list of techniques,
but the forms had more meaning,
the arrangement from basics to complex
took on a different meaning.

Before I go on,
here’s a clip from Pinan Five
Give you an idea of how some of this karate stuff works…

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=Sz1asLo9ktc

Anyway,
before we were so rudely interrupted by the video…
I noticed there was a general trend,
from white belt to black belt,
and the trend went like this…

block then counter
two block and counter
three block and counter
block and counter simultaneous

Do you see the progression?
While it looks like a progression of numbers of blocks,
it was actually a progression of time,
but you might have to see the actual techniques
to understand that particular thing.

One of the things I did
when I started ‘pre-matrixing,’
was make huge lists
of all blocks and counters,
and arrange them according to belt level.
Man,
did that make things easy.

But,
there was something else I noticed at the Kang Duk Won.
The forms expanded on the footwork,
and there was a link between the forms.
Pinan two and four were similar in certain ways.
And Pinan three and five were similar.

This,
again,
I utilized in matrixing.
Not just arranging the numbers of blocks and counters,
but sequencing the blocks and counters in time,
and then…
arranging the forms to accurately represent this linkage.
Zingo bingo,
there was the roots of real matrixing.

So,
go ahead,
do it.
Take your forms,
ask yourself about simplicity and workability,
arrange the techniques,
then arrange your forms,
or rather,
as you will probably have to do,
create new forms to contain
the much more logical and easy to teach techniques.

Guaranteed,
you’re going to twist your head on this stuff,
it took me decades to figure this out,
of course,
I didn’t have the simple things
that I have laid out for you here.

And,
there is an easy way.
Instead of pounding your head in frustration,
instead of doing something with your head
that heads are not well built to do,
just take a gander at

Matrix Karate.

It’s all there.
The linkage of techniques,
the linkage of forms,
freestyle methods to go with belt levels,
AND A BONUS COURSE ON KICKING
with the forms,
the techniques,
and everything in logical order.
AND…
all the distractions of other arts,
arts that do not match up with the basic concepts of karate,
have been eliminated.

Makes for a VERY pure path.
And a very QUICK path.

But don’t believe me.
Twist your head for thirty years,
and then come up with what I already did.

Here’s the link.
