Do Real Martial Arts by Breaking the Law!

How to Break the Law!

So,
the mean, nasty little secret,
why and how I break the law.
Let me set this up, first.

You ever see ‘Little Big Man?’
It’s a movie with Dustin Hoffman,
came out decades ago,
an okay movie,
with one, big gem.

An Indian is studying to be a shaman,
or great warrior,
or some such thing,
and part of the procedure
is to do everything backwards.

He washes with dirt and dries with water,
is the example in the movie,
I believe.

I thought of that
when I started doing my forms on the other side,
then started doing them backwards,
and tweaking them all over the place.
Very educational.

Sort of a funny thing,
opens up your mind,
loosens you up,
makes you think of things.
Doing things backwards is pretty nifty.
And,
it can be all the way to enlightening,
if you know what I mean.

So,
how often have you driven down a road
come to a stop light,
and sat there while it is red?
There’s nobody there,
no reason for the light to be red,
but you sit there anyway.
It’s The Law,
you know.

I don’t stop.
I look around,
I might slow,
I might not,
but I run it.
Regularly.
I do it all the time.
I refuse to halt my life
just because society thinks I should.

A real human being is outside the box.
He thinks outside the box,
he does things outside the box.

I remember the story of Bill Gates.
He ignored the law,
ran stop signs,
one day got caught.
So he hired a team of lawyers,
they found out that the stop sign in question
was one quarter of an inch too low,
so he got the case tossed out of court.

Probably cost him a hundred grand
to beat a $40 ticket.

But that’s not the point.
The point is that a man who thinks outside the box,
can’t be contained by the box,
and lives a better life.
Has better thoughts.
Is not slowed down by society.

Think about that
while you’re sitting at that stoplight,
counting the seconds
till it changes
and lets you go.

Now,
let’s take it a little further.

You’re doing the martial arts,
people tell you not to grab the fingers and twist,
it is against the MMA rules.
I say…
HEYSOOS CRISTOS!
Grab them fingers and twist.
Practice it,
figure out how much you have to twist
before you get an ‘ow.’
Figure out how to grab those fingers in the middle of a fight,
Make finger twisting into a useful technique!
BREAK THE FREAKIN’ RULES!
The rules contain you,
stop you,
slow you down,
make you into a responsible citizen…

but the essence of martial arts is learning
how to be an irresponsible citizen!
How to break somebody before they break you!

I remember growing up
and kicking somebody in the apples
was considered ‘dirty fighting,’
and people who did that kind of stuff
were looked down upon.

But kicking somebody in the apples
wins the fight!
Should you be the honorable fellow?
Who loses and has a knife stuck in their chest?
Or should you kick him in the freakin’ balls
so hard his testicles replace his Adam’s Apple?

I hope you get the idea.
I practice things people say I shouldn’t practice,
and the more people told me I was full of sheet,
the more I practiced,
until ideas spilled out of my head,
I was considered enlightened,
and I actually felt that I knew something
about the martial arts.

Until I felt unbound!

When you run a stop sign
you are saying ‘no’ to all the things
society is trying to implant in you.
When you run a red light
you are refusing to toe the line,
be a respectable citizen,
and saying,
instead,
that you are
GODZILLA
King of the Universe!

And all the little people,
with their pencils and clipboards,
their rules and regulations,
their holier than thou disdain
are just that,
little people,
and they cannot bind you
stop you
make you less than you are.

Break the rules that bind
and the spirit grows big.

Now,
if you object,
chances are that you are trapped,
inside the box,
behaving because you believe
that society is God,
and you have no power.

So you need to start breaking laws right now.
You need to grab the notion of yourself
as being unique and independent,
right now.
And you really need to break open
your ideas of the martial arts.

Learn a new art,
and you will be twice as smart.
Think about it,
a guy who is bilingual
has MANY more advantages
than a single lingual.
So why not for the arts?
And,
with matrixing,
you get an entirely new and true
totally expanded understanding of the arts.
With matrixing
you get tossed out of the box
whether you like it or not.

And,
in this subject of breaking the law,
I will only say one thing…
I never steal.
To steal is to break all laws,
and to step outside humanity.
We want to get outside the box
of restricted thought,
we don’t want to step outside
of our understanding and compassion.

Okey dokey,
here’s the obligatory link,
for the system I used,
I created,
to help me step all the way outside
of that furshlugginer box.

Here’s a great win…

A WIN!

Al,

I have gone through many of your courses and am currently going through blinding steel and eventually on my way to forty monkeys. I recently went through your book Matrixing Tong Bei. Several things clicked and the martial arts universe opened up after finishing that book.

A Punch of Belief, Not Effort

Newsletter 942

The Punch That is NOT a Punch!

I’ve probably thrown a few million punches in my life.
50 years times 365 days
(and yes, I do work out EVERY day!)
multiplied by as little as 100 punches
(and that is a little)
equals 1,825,000 punches
Truth,
I usually throw hundreds, if not thousands,
of punches a day.
In that time I’ve learned some nifty things.
How to punch with ‘chi power.’
How to put out a candle from a couple of feet away.
How to break a bone
A complete method for being able to multiply
the power of your punch
by many, many times.
It’s all written in ‘The Punch,’
if you’re interested.
But I’m going to talk about the punch that isn’t a punch here,
the punch that steps outside all the theories and writing I’ve done.

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/hard-punch/

When you punch it is a process of:
sinking weight in a stance,
breathing out at the same time,
and aligning your bones.
Aligning your bones efficiently would be called CBM
Coordinated Body Motion.

Now,
keep that all in mind when I say
you should do all this
and let the other person run into your punch.
That’s right,
you don’t punch him,
you assume the position of a punch,
with good stance and body alignment,
a nanosecond before impact,
and it is almost like the fellow runs into your punch.
But the key is this:
You have to construct your body so that it is ungiving.
You have to sink it into the ground,
and arrange the bones so that the structure does not give way
under impact.
This is all a matter of timing.
Sure,
you can hit somebody,
see if you can power up them biceps
(it’s actually the triceps that is the punching muscle,
in conjunction with a lot of other muscles besides)
slam your body around,
see if you can collapse his structure
by overloading it with your mass and mayhemish thoughts,
but my way is easier.
If you can master the nanosecond timing,
of settling your body into stance and strike
just as he reaches you,
he runs into the punch.

To tell you the truth,
I usually don’t tighten my fist anymore,
I usually just stick the aligned bones of my fists
into the space my opponent is about to occupy.

And,
to tell the truth,
it works better with blocks,
but you can make it work with punches,
if you are willing to
first, read ‘The Punch’
second, do 4 or 5 million punches
(which is probably more what I have done
than this measly million or two)
three, believe it is possible.
Without belief nothing is possible.

You just have to believe.

Have a great work out!
Al

Tai Chi is great for developing intuition and abilities,
here’s the link, and below it a great win!

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/hard-punch/

A WIN!

…the things you teach (keys to unlocking the arts) and then you encourage people to think for them self, for eg. In your book the punch you speak of two ways to punch, letting the force run back up the arm or making it pop in the opponent’s body.
I have seen a demo of a guy breaking blocks, a whole stack and he breaks the 5th one down. Then a light bulb went on
“Did sifu just teach me dim mak!”
If I can control where my punch pops, under some of those acu points are vital organs, nerve and vascular plexuses. Is this the secret to the death touch, hmm?
This is some REALLY DEEEP SHIT!!!
There more but this eg made me stop and think. Again my hat off to you sir

From Karate to MMA in One Simple Step

Newsletter 940

Finding MMA Jointlocks in Karate

I teach at a school near my house.
The school is predominately MMA,
and I teach things like Karate, Kung Fu, Monkey boxing.
So how do I get away with it?
Let me tell you…

One day I was helping one of the mma instructors.
He’s showing takedowns and locks and such,
and then,
because he knows I have limited MMA,
he glances in my direction,
makes sure I am helping him in the right way.
I’m working with one of the students,
no problem,
Except there was a problem.
I had done the takedown,
but couldn’t figure out how to get to the lock.
The instructor is about to come over,
and suddenly I roll up the student’s body.
Just roll,
like sideways,
using my weight.
The student under me tries to push me back,
I alter a bit,
and zingo bingo,
I have myself a kimura.
The student under me slaps the mat.
The instructor says,
how did you do that?

huh,
isn’t that the best question in the world?
How did I do that?
We weren’t working on kimuras,
he hadn’t shown anybody kimuras,
and he mentioned that he had never seen anybody
apply a kimura like that.
You see,
in MMA,
which is heavy on Brazilian Jujitsu,
there are certain sequences you use
to get a kimura,
but I hadn’t used one of those sequences.
I had done something he had never seen before.

The way I did it was straight out of karate.
When somebody punches
you execute a downward crossed wrist block.
Then you push the wrist one way,
manipulate the elbow by placing a finger behind the elbow,
and snake into a kimura.
When the student had tried to push me back
I had treated it like a punch.

The other instructor thought my technique was great fun,
he practiced,
showed it to other instructors,
and,
of course,
he showed me the technique I should have done.
But here’s the thing:
we (karate, kung fu, whatever) have all the locks and throws
that are in MMA,
we just do them standing up.
They do them lying down,
Same lock.
But because mma usually does a takedown first
they sometimes don’t understand the version
where you lock while standing up.

Now I’m not making a statement,
I respect all arts,
there are blank spots in every art,
and that’s what makes it so much fun
to train with people from other arts.


The above link is an unlisted one,
it shows the lock I used.
Now it is a downward kimura,
not an upward one,
not an official ‘chicken wing,’
as it is sometimes called.
And,
to tell the truth,
I have no idea what the name is in other languages or arts.
Downward kimura?
upside down elbow lock?
Anyway,
it is part of the upcoming Monkey Boxing epic I am working on.
For the last couple of years I have been working on
a website,
a series of videos,
presenting Al Case Monkey Boxing.
Which is the world’s first complete and perfect
BRAND NEW martial art.
Sure,
you can make karate perfect,
or kung fu or whatever,
but this art,
ACMB,
is new from the ground up,
and I thought you might enjoy a taste of what is coming.

So far I’ve got over 200 videos presenting this art,
it will be the best video course
in the history of the martial arts.
VERY comprehensive.
And,
interestingly enough,
I’ve got 7 guys I have been showing it to.
They signed up for the MB vid course
a little over a year ago,
so the whole thing will be proofed by them
by the time it is released.

Anyway,
I thought I would show you one of the videos.
You can see that I am not interested in beating people up,
but rather teaching them.
Mechanically, scientifically, philosophically.
Enjoy,
and remember what I said earlier,
stand up arts have all the MMA locks and such,
but only if the instructor understands the difference
between standing up and laying down.

Have a great work out!

Al

This course is the original,
it will stay the same when I present
the whole Monkey Boxing art…

1b Matrix Kung Fu

A WIN WITH MONKEY BOXING IN IT!

I wanted to share this with you: this last Saturday I was in my Brazilian Jiujitsu class and it dawned on me. Many of the  submissions are similar to techniques from other arts. An arm lock in Jiujitsu is a block in Muay Thai, and a movement from Monkey Boxing is a lockdown (or pin) in Jiujitsu. Doing the Matrixing courses has begun to bring things together in a way I hadn’t ever noticed before. But it isn’t in a confusing way. It just fits.

Thanks,
Mylan B

A Question About Terrorism and the Martial Arts

The Martial Arts Question of a Terrorist!

I get tired of hearing about school bullies, secret fighting techniques, and which martial art is best, especially when the real problem is one terrorist, one bomb, and you’ve only got time for one martial arts technique!

You step onto an elevator in Trump Tower, there’s one person in the corner, but, in this ‘eyes down’ society you ignore him and lift your hand to press the button for the fourth floor.

The button is already lit up. Huh! The other guy is going to the fourth floor, too. The fourth floor is a family planning clinic, and your eyes inadvertently flicker up.

He’s wearing a long, dark coat, it is open, you can see rows of dynamite sticks! And he’s trying to plug in a dead man’s switch!

You mutter the F-bomb here!

He’s going to kill expectant mothers! Innocent children! Insert another F-bomb!

You have got less than three seconds before he’s armed. Three seconds in which to disarm him and save half a hundred morning families. Three seconds in which to make sure he doesn’t plug in the switch, render him helpless and save the world!

Here’s the question: WHAT TECHNIQUE WILL YOU USE!

Now, while you’re blinking, maybe uttering an F-bomb of your own for this writer, and your mind is wildly trying to come to grips with this scenario, let me throw a few parameters in here, lay out some ground rules, and play a very serious devil’s advocate.

If you punch him in the head, you might break your hand. Skulls are hard, boxer’s wear gloves for this reason, and one punch actually isn’t a very sure thing for a knock out. Watch a boxing match, or any good MMA tournament, and you will see hundreds of punches thrown, and very few knock outs.

If you grapple, try a single leg takedown and wrestle him to submission, you are taking a big chance. He might not care if you break something as long as he gets that switch plugged in, and a single leg takedown will leave his hands free. Besides, do you really want to get in a wrestling match with a guy wearing 20 sticks of dynamite?

The coat is open, which leaves certain targets open, and certain targets closed.

He is the same height and weight as you. Slightly bigger if you are a lady.

Within one second he will notice that you’ve noticed him. Two seconds he is plugged in. Three seconds and…BOOM!

So, one second to thoroughly assess a situation, at the end of that second you have to know what technique you are going to do. And I don’t care what martial art you study, this is not a ‘my art is best’ question, it is a ‘what are you going to do when the world is about to end’ question.

So, you’ve got one second. Pick your technique and explain it in the comments, or…BOOM!

About the Author: Al Case, 8th degree black belt with over 50 years experience, has written/produced over 100 books/video courses on the martial arts. You can find out the fastest, best, most efficient method for earning a black belt click on the Matrix Karate box at his website, http://monstermartialarts.com.

Four Hours of Kenjutsu Instruction!

Newsletter 930

Matrixing the Samurai Sword and Staff

One of the things that people have asked for
ever since the first matrixing course hit,
is for me to matrix the sword.
Specifically, the Samurai sword.
So I done it.

You can find a Matrix Kenjutsu box on the monster,
or there is a link down below.

The course is based on the book
‘3rd Level 6th Sense Sword Fighting.’

I actually wrote that book back in the 90s,
and I always received the best comments on it,
so it was time.

Now,
the course consists of 2 parts.

First is the Matrix Kenjutsu part.
I simply filmed each of the cuts, blocks,
how to do directions, and all that sort of stuff.
And I felt it was too simple.
I needed to predict any questions people might have.
The segments were too short.
The whole thing is only an hour long.

I always want to give people more than their moneys worth.
So I filmed a second part.
Teaching Matrix Kenjutsu.
In Teaching Matrix Kenjutsu
I filmed about 20 segments,
long segments,
in which I teach Matrix Kenjutsu to a student.
This ended up being over three hours of instruction,
showing not just the art,
but how to teach it.
You’ll see the mistakes made,
the questions asked,
the ‘what ifs’ that arise,
and so on.

Now,
if you do this course,
and have done the Master Instructor Course,
and send me a video of yourself doing the art,
just showing the strikes, the footwork, the two man defenses,
I’ll be happy to certify people.

And,
I’ll tell you right now,
you can teach this as a seminar to get people in your school,
or as a complete course along with whatever other art you teach.

I am about helping people become competent,
understand the truth of the martial arts,
and this really entails making teachers.

So,
the door is open,
whether you just want a new art,
an expanded viewpoint of matrixing,
or something to teach,
Matrix Kenjutsu is the real deal.

I’ll be talking about it over the next couple of weeks,
but for now,
head over to the monster page

http://monstermartialarts.com/matrixing-kenjutsu/

and check it out for yourself.

And,
just put it up,
so if anybody encounters any problems,
in ordering or the downloads themselves,
let me know at
aganzul@gmail.com.

And,
for now it is just Instant Download.
Sorry,
my printer is refusing to print disks,
so until I get that fixed,
instant downloads only.

Okeyly Donkey
Have a Stupendous Work Out!

How to Make Karate into Tai Chi Chuan

Can you use Tai Chi to Learn Karate?

First, comes the question, why would anybody want to make karate into tai chi chuan?

Lots of reasons, actually.

First, learning how to do Karate Tai Chi style opens the doors for people who are old or injured to enjoy this most marvelous art.

Second, and this is important, it teaches people who study karate a whole new set of principles. It teaches them things about energy, how the body works, exposes a whole new set of form applications, and more.

Third, people who study tai chi chuan have the same learning experience: new techniques, different methods of developing chi power, and more.

The differences between these two arts is pretty sizable.

Karate, rightly or wrongly, is held up as an explosive and linear art.

Tai Chi Chuan is held up as a slow motion adjunct to good health.

Both arts are good, but they are only of the martial art entire.

A good karate practitioner should learn how to move slow, as this will teach a whole new style of energy production, and double potential striking (blocking) power.

Further, the slow movements increases understanding of ‘emptiness,’ which increases the ‘zen’ spirituality of the art form.

And, most important, the viewpoint on bunkai, form applications or self defense moves, undergoes a radical shift.

Karate explodes, tai chi absorbs, thus the karateka learning  tai chi concepts is going to learn a totally different, and sometimes diametrically opposed, method for applying the self defense moves built into the forms.

And, from the other side, people who study tai chi for health, or who don’t fully understand the applications of that discipline, or only buying half a loaf.

Building energy through a simple motion with no resistance is useful, but only of ten per cent of the real value. Learning the applications will create deeper understanding of the form, make the moves mean something, and therein lies the real potential of chi power and health benefits.

There a lot of benefits to combining the two arts, and only a fluff martial artist would not want to avail himself (herself) of the benefits of translating karate into tai chi chuan.

The author has written the first and only tome on this fascinating subject of turning karate into tai chi chuan. The title is ‘How to Translate Karate into Tai Chi Chuan.’ The book is bundled into the video course available at MonsterMartialArts.com. The book will become available in paperback, but it may be some time before this occurs. The video course is over five hours of hands on instruction.

Karate Kid Fights the Cobra Kai…Again!

Newsletter 896

The Revenge of Cobra Kai Karate!

Great news item,
a remake of the Karate Kid
starring the original Ralph Maccio (Daniel LaRusso)
AND
the villain you love to hate,
what was his name,
the bad guy kid Ralph beats up
in the final tournament?

Yeah, you can’t remember his name,
even though he was a great villain.
The character’s name was Johnny Lawrence,
the actor who played Johnny to perfection was…
William Zabka!

Now,
can you see it,
the characters should be about 50 years old,
fighting one last tournament
for the rights to Geritol.
No,
I’m kidding,
Johnny has fallen on bad times,
and reopens the Cobra Kai,
and falls afoul of Daniel.

Interesting.

So let’s look at this thing.

Daniel works out in solitude,
patient,
thinks about what he does.

Johnny gets in street fights,
cultivates anger,
runs on emotions,
is a loser.

Hmmm.

Daniel waxes on and off,
searches for whatever the heck Miyagi meant,
and becomes a winner.

This was the premise of the original Karate Kid,
and it worked.
Not because it was real,
but because it played to the victim in all of us.
We are all alone in our hearts,
we all want success and friendship,
and therein lies the movie.
The movie plays to our basic wants and needs.

It actually is a superior piece of film making.
As an advice to martial artists…hmmm.

No,
if you want to beat people up,
you have to practice beating people up.
That is the point of the kata and freestyle and techniques.

The mistake of the Cobra Kai
was in the admonishment to …
KILL! KILL! KILL!

So,
has Johnny learned his lesson?
Or is he about to get a new one?
I think we know the answer to that.

But,
will millions of kids be convinced,
or maybe I should say
will millions of 50 year olds be convinced
to find a Cobra Kai
where they can vent 50 years of failure and rage?
Or will millions of 50 years,
tottering on the brink of old age,
be convinced to at last kick a bag,
explore the patience of their minds,
discover how the body really works,
and enter old age with a new heart and body?

The answer,
of course,
is going to be in what kind of school they sign up in.

The odd thing is this:
We all remember the name ‘Copbra Kai!’
Does anybody remember the name of Daniel’s…uh, school?

Interesting.

So,
here’s the course you should take to start off your journey into geriatrics…
http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/matrix-karate/
Check the page out,
it’s got a real bit of unbelievable history on it,
history that will explain all sorts of things about Karate
and the martial arts in general.
And if you’re really hurting,
start off with the Tai Chi on that page.

See you at #MartialArtsmovies!

Have a great work out!

Finding the real 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!

Martial Arts Master Instructor Course has some Interesting Results…

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.

thank you,
Master Instructor Fred Cook.
