How Matrixing Works in the Martial Arts!

Actually Understanding the Martial Arts!

I haven’t written about Matrixing for a while,
so let me explain for people who have never heard of it.

Make a list of numbers to ten.
1, 2, 3, 4…10
It’s easy to count to ten.
You can count anything.
After a while you even forget to count on your fingers.
That’s what effective martial arts looks like.
A small number of techniques easily and intuitively remembered.

But,
as people teach the martial arts they have favorite techniques
and they leave out number 4.
You can still count to ten, sort of.
Not a real ten,
but, hey, that blank space isn’t important,
I’ve got nine things that work.

Then some guy teaches it, and his favorite technique is 13.
1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13.
Okay. Cool. He’s got nine techniques that work,
and a thirteen technique that,
if he’s lucky, he can get away with.

A guy teaches techniques, but the enemy wears armor.
Some more techniques are left out,
and more ‘specialized techniques’ are added.

Time passes and students don’t have the weapons threat any more,
but they keep practicing the ‘specialized techniques,’
and they are adapted, changed, altered,
for different circumstances.

After a few years,
not even hundreds or thousands,
but just a handful of years,
three or four generations,
a few cultural changes,
and the art looks like this:

1, 2c, 5, 5f, 5g, 8, 3h, 16, 89, 1b,
b3, 43, 23k, 2k, yellow, 63fg, 7, 4little, 19, 9…
and eighty more techniques.
All to count to ten.

Everybody has added, changed, adapted, included
techniques from other arts, other countries,
been influenced by religion, politics
and their mothers aversion to violence.

And this what the martial arts look like today.
ALL of the martial arts.

People take years to memorize a sequence of ‘numbers’
that make no sense, are out of order,
and often don’t work at all.

Do you know what matrixing looks like?

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Simple. Easy to learn and…
EASY TO REMEMBER!
It becomes intuitive right from the get go.
And it can be applied to ANY art!
You can figure out which techniques
belong in the sequence,
should be kicked out,
should be changed to work,
and so on.

And,
the hidden blessing…
once you matrix your art
your mind has experienced intuitive thinking.
It begins to function differently.
It is quicker and more logical.

Now,
is matrixing for everybody?
Nope.

People who are stuck in their art as a belief system
should not learn matrixing.
they don’t have the ability to learn,
and especially to be intuitive.
They will end up frustrated and critical.
Anybody who is critical is usually stuck.

People of low intelligence.
And this situation is truly terrible,
for it includes most people educated in the modern systems.
Go to school and you are likely more stupid
and even unable to learn.

But if you aren’t stupid,
and you aren’t locked into the arts as a belief system,
and you can learn…
matrixing can have a profound effect.

So,
the proof.
I’ve got 0ver 700 pages of wins from people.
I’ve been pushing matrixing,
in some form,
since the eighties,
and I’ve only had two returns in that time.
But the real proof is this…
Money back guarantee.
Looks, it’s subjective,
the only person that can prove it is your experience.
Not somebody else’s words,
but your own dig in and find out the truth self.

So,
here’s the link…

You can study it in other arts on the site,

Evolving in Tai Chi Chuan!

Accelerating Your Speed of Learning in Tai Chi!

I was always trying to figure out
how to make Tai Chi Chuan happen a little quicker.
Just as i didn’t want to take years for a black belt in other systems,
I didn’t want to take years to get the real benefits of Tai chi.

When I put together the Nine Square Diagram Boxing
I was addressing this directly.
I figured isolating the working moves,
increasing repetition,
and focusing on the meditative aspects
would get me there.

The important things to remember
are to shift the weight back and forth,
loading the legs with energy,
pushing that energy into the tan tien,
which is the energy generator for the body.

Also, to keep the belly taut, but not tight.
This focuses on the tan tien and not the muscles.
Very important to realize that
if you focus on the muscles
you isolate body parts
instead of putting them together as one unit.

And, to keep the arms filled with unbendable energy.
Aikido definitions are best to understand the ‘unbendable arm.’
But very little flexing,
keep the arms at their most optimum bend
and work on subtle pulses
that work off the push of energy in the legs.

Doing the Nine Square in this way,
or doing Tai Chi in this manner
will up your speed of learning,
and the accumulation of energy in your body.

Simply shift back and forth
and feel the ‘slosh’ of energy in your body.
It may take a while,
but it is faster than traditional Tai Chi by ten.

But what REALLY helped me
is doing the Nine Square with my eyes closed.
I did this with Tai Chi and it helped,
but with the repetition and focus of Nine Square
it magnified everything tremendously

I was feeling like I was holding a ball of energy.
I was feeling the energy building so fast
that I was compelled to move into the hard style
and snap everything with power.

that’s why I talk about doing the Nine Square two ways.
One soft and one hard.

When doing the Nine square soft (or Tai Chi)
don’t work against yourself.
Let the power build by being patient.
Know that you’re working for more than simple self defense.
Know that you are building yourself spiritually,
building and using energies
that normal people are not aware exists.

Ground the legs,
taut the belly
unbendable arms
close the eyes and let the power build

Do the hard style separately.

‘Empty and Be’ in the Martial Arts!

The Biggest Secret in the Martial Arts!

Yes,
breathing, grounding, relaxing,
they’re important.
body alignment and synchronization,
very important.
But the most important thing is
where you put your intention.

So here’s a nifty, little trick.
Having trouble touching your toes?
Especially that first bend or two?
Try these two things.
First, arch your back and touch the sky behind you.
Really stretch,
relax,
let the back bend backwards.
Now,
LOOK AT THE GROUND
as you touch the ground.

Suddenly you can reach the ground easily
and with no effort.
Good martial arts never takes effort,
it takes relaxed intention.

Look, the reason you can’t bend forward enough
is because the back is tight
energy is locked,
or at least unmoving.
So you have to move it.
But the back is like the string of a guitar,
it doesn’t just bend in one direction,
it’s got to bend in both directions,
and when you bend in both directions
all the energy that is locked up
can start to move.
Bend only forward and the back is only half bending,
and the other half is fighting you.

And when you look to the ground your intention is freed,
it is no longer distracted by your half moving back,
and your body can go where your intention directs it.

So,
how do you put intention into your strikes and blocks?
The other side of the guitar string,
in this instance,
is emptiness.
Mentally empty your body,
just relax and breath,
even forget about what you are doing,
then direct your intention into your hand
imagine it being in the new position.
Pop!
What was empty is now full.

People talk about focus,
and they are right,
but it’s not just filling the muscle,
it is emptying the muscle before you fill it.

Want to punch faster?
Want to assume deeper posture?
Want to do away with reaction time
and be in the moment?

the secret is intention.
And the secret of intention
is to be empty before you be full.

What’s fascinating is to apply this,
to do this long enough
that you start assuming a viewpoint outside your body,
empty and fill your body,
figure out when the energy is going through which leg,
and out through which arm.
Empty and Be.

And,
eventually,
your mind is empty,
virtually cleansed,
and you have freedom of motion in all directions,
and in all directions of your life.

Okay,
so,

How Deep Should You Strike in Karate?

Hitting with the Right Degree of Force!

Let’s take off the gloves.
Let me dispel a couple of illusions.
Let’s talk about how deep you strike somebody
in the martial arts.

There are three depths of striking.
First, you strike somebody skin deep.
Bare contact,
no harm,
point fighting.
Excellent stuff.
Trains people without harming them.
Sure, it lacks reality,
but you can get more reality
by mixing in other training.
Makiwara, sand box, punching bag.
Mix those with your point fighting and
you will become formidable.

Second,
you strike somebody muscle deep.
This is to cause pain and bruises.
It is not to kill somebody.
It is to bruise them and dissuade them.
It is the slap to bring them to their senses
before you stick a knife in them.
We use this in a very controlled manner
when we are doing form applications.
We build ourselves and our partners up
by striking them harder and harder,
but still don’t damage them.

Third,
you strike somebody bone deep.
This is the punch or block designed
to break a bone or…
to end a life.

To punch skin deep is to touch,
to punch muscle deep is to bruise,
to punch bone deep is to render them
broken and unconscious.

Good karate,
or any good martial art
will enable the student to progress
through the depths of strikes
so he can use the right one at the right time.

I think that being able to
strike somebody bone deep
is a skill worth acquiring.

I wrote a book on how to develop a third level strike.
it is called:

The Hardest Punch in the World

How to Fix Karate Extra Data

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,
two volumes,
and it’s got a LOT of data in it.
But the basic principles are very simple.
First,
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,
instead,
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
Sanchin,
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.

Now,
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
any misunderstanding
concerning
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.

Building Sixth Sense Martial Arts!

Breeding Intuition in the Martial Arts!

Intuition is a sixth sense.
It is more than just hair standing up
on the back of the neck.

I was working in a factory,
when I was a young lad.
They all knew I studied martial arts,
some thought it cool,
others thought it was a joke.

One day one of the guys asked me about sword fighting.
We went into a storage room, very poor lighting,
and I was showing him how to grip the sword
how to stand, and so on.
I was using a piece of door track for a sword,
and it had a very jagged end.

Suddenly it felt like a huge hand was turning me around,
pulling the sword down.
One of the guys who thought my martial arts was a joke,
a fellow named Eddie,
thought he’d ‘get me.’
That was his exact thought,
I later found out,
when he was sneaking up behind me.

I turned and cut
right before he cold jump me.

Only the fact that I was resisting this big force
that was pulling me around,
did I managed to avoid slicing open his face.
As it was I cut a big gash in his chest.
Blood all over,
very nasty.

That was my sixth sense.
I cultivated it through the martial arts,
and it was like a big guard dog
watching over me,
attacking to protect me
whether I saw the threat or not.

It is actually very easy to cultivate that sixth sense.
You just practice your techniques.
Endlessly.
Seeking perfection.

BUT!
You will get that sixth sense ten times faster
if you matrix.

Look,
Matrixing is like that chart you had
up on the wall in second grade.

1 + 1
1 + 2
1 + 3
and so on.
Just a big chart with numbers down one side
and across the top,
and you get all the answers if you just read the chart.
No missing answers,
no wrong answers,
no extra answers.

You figure out the numbers,
practice them endlessly,
and suddenly,
one day,
you know the answers,
as opposed to having to think about them.

That is the same concept you use
when you matrix the martial arts.
You just have to use this same method
with the martial arts.

Why does it take so long in regular ‘un-matrixed’ martial arts?

Because the techniques are random.
They are not in order.
They don’t make sense when you view them,
not by themselves or as a whole.

You are practicing martial arts
without the context.
Period.

It takes ten or even twenty years
to develop your sixth sense
doing the martial arts the regular way.

The odd thing is that you don’t have to give up your old method,
you just have to view it through the ‘matrix filter.’

It’s funny.
I’ve been pushing matrixing since 2007
and people still refuse it
call me a charlatan,
they don’t even have the brains
to look at it.

Anyway,

Reaching the Highest Grade of Martial Arts

Highest Level Martial Arts!

Good morning!

I’ve always felt that

Karate is like chess

and boxing is like checkers.

They are played on the same board,

or in the same ring.

In essence,

they are games that analyze motion.

The motion of the body

the motion of the limbs

the motion of the opponent

In boxing,

the motion is dedicated to 

collisions of the fist with flesh.

In karate,

and the majority of other martial arts

the motion is dedicated to 

collisions of the fist and foot with flesh,

entangling limbs to trip, lock, throw, etc.

Some arts specialize more than others.

But,

still,

it is all about the analysis of motion.

And here we come to something interesting.

The highest stages of martial art

are dedicated to non-motion.

Simply,

you analyze motion

until you enter a state of non-motion.

The easiest example of this

that I can think of.

You and Joe Blow are playing soccer.

You are racing for the ball.

You are running next to each other 

at the same speed,

and you notice that you and Joe are motionless

compared to the background moving behind you.

You and Joe are in your own world.

Strange things happen when you are in your own world.

Time can be manipulated.

Between the two of you

you can agree to a passage of time

that is different from

the passage of time in the ‘real’ universe.

Now,

if you practice long and hard

you can create this sense of time without Joe.

You just look at an opponent

and different rules apply.

Motion becomes different.

it becomes uniquely adjusted by one person

agreeing for both people.

Read that one again,

it’s so damned simple it’s difficult.

It took me decades to find that reality,

that different sense of time,

that place where my sense of self

was strong enough to affect

the universe outside myself.

So,

how do you find this place?

First,

meditate through forms.

Second,

meditate through form applications (techniques).

Third,

when you freestyle with somebody,

eschew violence for staring at them so hard

that you end up feeling like you are in a tube.

One day I asked my instructor

if he had ever had any mystical experiences.

He said that one day

he was working out

and was looking down a long tube at his opponent.

He said the tube felt like it was 60 feet long.

He could see everything before it happened.

He even knew what his opponent was thinking.

When I was in my fifties,

some twenty years ago,

I had that experience.

I only felt like I was about 10 feet from my opponent,

but it was a stable experience,

not a one time thing.

At that time I started doing a mental drill.

And I think it helped me.

I would do forms,

often with my eyes closed,

or in a dark room,

and visualize myself as fifty feet above myself;

looking down ast my body.

I would tell my body,

 way down there,

how to move.

This brought an incredible sense of peace to myself

and I truly felt like I was expanding

as a martial artist,

and as a human being.

Have fun with this.

And, have fun with this little video clip.

Okay people!
Dust off your nunchuks

In 1974 New York politicians made nunchucks illegal.
Which, of course, made people want to buy them even more.
And, if you’re a student of the 2nd amendment…
was an entirely unconstitutional law.
Fortunately,
people recognize that politicians are a danger to the country,
and that they should be outlawed,
and it is very easy to get nunchucks and practice with them.

That said, let’s talk about James Maloney.
In 1981 he was arrested for using nunchuks in a demonstration.
He graduated from law school in 1995
and set about challenging the law.
He’s 60 now, and he was successful.

Judge Pamela K Chen ruled that nunchuks
were protected under the second amendment.

WAY TO GO JAMES!

You know,
I am reminded of a bumper sticker.
When guns are outlawed,
only outlaws will have guns.

Yowza!
When nunchuks are outlawed
only outlaws will have nunchuks.

And…
when politicians are outlawed…
we will all be a little safer.

But,
I did not call you here to rant political!
But since you are here…heh heh…

IF…somebody breaks into your house,
and IF…they allow you one phone call,
and IF…the 911 operator isn’t too busy,
and IF…the bad guys don’t leave before the police get there
(five to ten minutes on a good day)
then you better pray you know martial arts.

And, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that
the best courses in the world
on how to do the martial arts
are at Monster Martial Arts.
It’s true.

Your Attacker will have a Weapon!

Snuck that ad right in there…didn’t I?

Okay, guys and gals,
time to hit the home dojo
and crank out the punches and kicks
and become a better person!

Have a great work out!

The Martial Arts Night Before XMAS!

Martial Arts

HanaKwanMass!
And, I’ve got my yearly
‘Night Before Xmas’ rendition for you.
But,
first,
HanaKwanMass means
Hanukah plus Kwanza plus Christmas!
You might offend two thirds of everybody you meet,
but you get three times the gifts!
Yahoo!

Now,
in the interests of offending everybody everywhere
is the Martial Arts Night Before Christmas!

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

Twas the night before Christmas
I was in my shack
primed and ready
for the red fat attack.

my weapons were loaded
the windows were barred
all would be safe
while I was on guard

The chimney was decked
with concertina wire
I crouched by the couch
ready to fire.

I had an M60
with ammo to feed
I didn’t care
if the red fat did bleed.

A loaded shotgun
and grenades to spare
when red fat came down
I’d blow him out of there.

Throwing stars and knives
and a really long sword
and if that didn’t work
I knew a bad word.

Sitting there late
my eyes started to close
when suddenly I heard
a bunch of ho hos.

Off with the lights
safety off, too
I  watched the fire close
and heard a sound from the flu.

‘Ouch and gosh darn it
who put the wire here
those are my undies
starting to tear!’

Then a shower of soot
and a grunt and a groan
he landed in the fire
and gave out a moan.

He was rubbing the place
where the wire did tear
so I held down the trigger
and lead filled the air.

belt after belt
did I deal the red fat
he danced and he jumped
I knew he felt that!

then quicker than spit
I ran out of lead
but enough was enough
he had to be dead.

Boy was I shocked
to see him stand tall
stepping out of the fireplace
not bothered at all.

So I grabbed up the 16
to mow him down
he had to be hurting
cause I saw his big frown.

Then I was empty
and he came straight for me
I pulled out my knives
and sliced him with glee

He jumped to the side
moving real quick
disarmed my knives
with a well placed kick

then he dropped the big bag
he had on his shoulder
reached forth his arms
and his anger did smolder

He grabbed hard my neck
and held me up high
I tried kicks and punches
but I was like a fly

Not karate nor judo
no art did work
and he grinned a mean grin
and called me a jerk

‘Don’t you know
you stupid little man
Christmas is forever
in spite of your plan.’

Then he threw me aside
and proceeded to work
giving presents to all
and to me a great smirk

And when he left
the great big red fat
he left me a lump of coal
the big red fat rat!

HANAKWANMASS TO ALL
and to all a great work out.
