Evolve a Thousand Years in One hour

The Martial Arts, and Evolution…

Speaking of matrixing, the martial arts, and evolution…
I came across an interesting thought
the other day
I was reading some old yogic scrolls,
and the claim was made
that an hour of yoga
caused a thousand years of evolution
in the person doing the yoga.

Interesting claim.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

And,
it’s not right,
though it does act like it is right.

After all,
when you evolve,
you are not growing,
you are reclaiming yourself.
So it’s true,
but…not really.
Which brings us to Matrixing.

When you study a martial art
that has been matrixed,
the art is logical,
and therefore the you accept it.
you like things to make sense,
to be logical.

when you matrix a martial art
you accept this logical method
of looking at and handling the world
at a much faster rate.

The difference between studying a martial art,
and matrixing it
(making it logical through your own efforts)
is the difference between driving a car
and building a car.
The fellow who builds the car
will understand that car far better
than the fellow who simply drives it.

Mind you,
in the end,
you get to where you are going.
But the fellow who makes his own vehicle
will,
in the end,
get there faster.

Now,
that said,
there are several things that will happen,
as you matrix,
that will occur.
I don’t think I have ever laid out these results,
described this path,
so here goes…

First,
you will tend to look at the world in a logical manner.
You will become better at solving problems.
You will become a better worker and boss.
You will become an artist.

Everybody sort of knows this,
most martial artists experience this,
so let me take you where most people don’t know.

Second,
you must put aside emotion.
This is an interesting thing.
People will put emotion on you,
and you will feel the need to respond with emotion.
But the Neutronic definition of emotion:

emotion is motion inside the head.

Thus,
you must still the emotion,
stop the motion inside your head,
and not respond with emotion,

BTW,
there is good emotion,
love, happiness, etc.
And there is bad emotion,
hate, fear, sadness, etc.

So the specific emotion you must not respond to
is the bad emotion.
Good emotion okay.
Bad emotion you must uncreate from even beginning.

Think about it,
emotion is merely the automatic response
of one who is overwhelmed.
You must not become overwhelmed,
you must view the world in logical terms,
so that nothing can surprise you,
nothing can overwhelm you.

Third,
you must defeat the distraction of memories.
You must not respond because any conditioning
you may have received.
This includes any familial conditioning,
any educational conditioning,
any conditioning of any kind.
Instead,
you must create yourself in the moment.

For instance,
your father laughed at certain types of jokes before you,
do you laugh at the same kind of jokes?
Don’t you realize that he laughed at jokes in his moment?
And that you have an entirely different moment?
That will change the type of jokes you might laugh at.

For instance,
school might train you to think like a physicist,
and you will analyze the world as a physicist,
when you should analyze it as a unique being,
not trapped by an education.

(Mind, I am not saying you can’t be a physicist
and be in the moment, too)

For instance,
do you view the world through a religious viewpoint?
It would be much better
to study all religions,
to understand all religions,
than to choose one religion over all others.

Don’t become the only thing in the universe
willing to kill over a belief system.

This is simple after you have evolved a few hours…

Fourth,
you must separate yourself from other people,
without losing your humanity.
Simply,
you must be immune to the attitudes
of your fellow man,
but you must love your fellow man
all the same.
This one is incredibly tough.
No matter how far you evolve,
there will always be some idiot
telling you what to do,
thinking he is smarter than you,
and so on.
Can you accept and even use this fellow?
And put aside your certainty
that he is an idiot?
Interesting problem, eh?

Fifth,
and this one is a toughie,
don’t view the world as a fantasy.
This is probably the toughest,
for you become enlightened through the things
I have previously mentioned,
then you might think that,
because you are so smart,
the world should be as you say.

For instance,
you make a battery powered car,
to save the world from pollutants,
and don’t ever consider
that someday the battery will have to be disposed of,
and that the battery might be worse
than all the oil pollutants of a gas car.

Oddly,
this is one of the most dangerous things
you will ever to confront
on your way to self-sufficiency
as a spiritual being…
on your way to your ultimate evolution…
on the way to the ultimate truth of yourself.

Though people haven’t discovered
the earlier truths,
they don’t know how to look at the world logically,
or control their emotion,
or control their responses to people,
they will still try to rule the world through their fantasy.

Have you ever met a fellow without an opinion?
And yet I am asking you to be one.
Toughest problem you will ever encounter.

Anyway,
this is the truth of matrixing
and where it leads to.

First,
you learn to look at the world logically
through the matrixing method.
You put aside the distraction of memories,
then you put aside emotion,
other people’s thoughts,
and even fantasy.

Then you find the truth of yourself,
and you start manipulating the universe
the way it should be manipulated.

The truly odd thing is that this path
often starts with a simple motivation:
the desire to defend yourself.
The wish to become physically safe
through simple exercises and drills.

Where this path leads,
though,
is sublime.

Now,
the one caution:
People think they can do this through any martial art.
Yet nobody has ever succeeded.

Indeed,
the people who think they have
are merely manifesting their fantasy of the world.
They are still mired in the muck,
and don’t understand that they have no logic.
They have only the fantasy of logic.
They have only an opinion and no facts.

So it has to be a matrixed martial art.
It can’t be a Chinese fire drill of a martial art,
it has to be a logical (matrixed) martial art.
Then it will work,
and then you can experience something like…
a thousand years of evolution
through a simple hour of exercise.

Okay,
Matrix Karate starts the matrixing process.
Study the courses as you need to,
until logic outweighs fantasy in your mind.
Then you will be off and running.

But whatever you do…
don’t settle for an opinion.

Think and It Shall Happen…Through the Martial Arts!

The Power of Mind over Matter…

May the force be with you. Did the Egyptians levitate those pyramidal building blocks with their minds? I wanna have the power of mind over matter!

if you don't have a mind it doesn't matterHey, who doesn’t. The problem is, you don’t see anybody else who has it, either. Even the bible, translated through seventy different special interest groups, is not entirely believable when it comes to matters of the mind over matter.

That said, the first stage in learning how to have powers of mind over matter is to learn that the body is a machine. This can be done through many different methods, but the best one I have found is good old martial arts. You have to translate a lot of stuff into physics, and there is a lot of bushwah out there, but if you stick to the empirical method you can actually isolate True Martial Arts.

The second stage is learning how to use the mind. The first stage, in teaching you that the body is a machine, opens up the mind, but most people misunderstand what has happened. They think they have to build their bodies more, when, at a certain point, they have to use their bodies less, and energy less, and let their mental powers transcend any desire for physicality.

The third stage, interesting enough, deals with an analysis of flow, such as in Aikido, or Pa Kua, or others of the soft arts. Once flow is mastered, the third stage starts to manifest, and this is a stage of imagination. Can you make people back away from you just by looking at them, can you fall somebody down with your intent, as opposed to actually touching them.

The fourth stage is going to be available after you have achieved the abilities I’ve just described. This is going to be where you make stones levitate. Can you take imagination and make the things of the world do what you want them to do?

Can you imagine a stone lifting, and it lifts solely through your imagination? This is not muscle, and is, in fact, in a direction opposite to muscle. Though, remember, it is necessary on the first stage.

The real key is in understanding, not in mysticism, for mysticism is the fact of words and concepts not really being understood and therefore not really usable. The real key is in running imagination through your body on the lower levels, and then being able to manifest that imagination outside your body. Of course, at this point, you should probably find a workable method for isolating the exact physics of The True Martial Arts.

But to start from scratch, go to MonsterMartialArts.com and find a course on good Kung Fu.

The Zen Simplicity of Martial Arts

To Be or Not to Be Martial Arts Style

To the beginner the martial arts, and this includes Karate, Kung Fu, Aikido, Tai Chi Chuan, and all other martial disciplines, can be less than simple. There is simply an overwhelm of information, a ‘disgruntlement’ of the mind at the massive influx of new materials.

The simple truth, however, is that the truth is simple.

martial arts discipline

The answers are in you…if you have the discipline to look.


 
Why these subjects, be they karate or jujitsu or whatever, would not be simple, once once absorbed, is merely the result of engaging the mind to try and describe what is ‘not mind.’

For instance, in the beginning one must wade through instructions concerning physics, anatomy, history, philosophy, and so on. This is made more complex as different arts propose different structure and on many levels, and then often disagree.

The harmony of Aikido is similar to the absorption of Tai Chi Chuan, but there is sufficient difference to argue the terminology.

The striking methods of Wing Chun and boxing, though at heart still just a strike, can be argued ad infinitum.

But in the end, proven by simple and direct experience, a human being is constructed of flesh (body), mind (memories), and spirit (awareness). Thus, all physics, which is the heart of all sciences, can be rendered to a fine simplicity.

The fact is that the discipline of the martial arts focuses on doing to the exclusion of the mind, and thus is achieved enlightenment. Enlightenment is considered, from the unique viewpoint of an accomplished martial arts discipline, to be aware of the self as awareness.

And, yes, the above statement, so simple, is the summation that can be applied on any and all levels of all martial arts.

To do a single act, a kata or technique, a kick or throw, until there is no thought (no interference from the mind), and is intuitive, opens the door to enlightenment.

For once one looks at a fist approaching the face in terms of simple survival, one will begin to look at the approach of the universe in the same way.

Not an overwhelm of factors to be adjusted through eternal tweakings of computations, but a simple ‘Is it going to hit me or not.’

Followed by a simple, ‘Do I block or get out of the way.’

Not complex at all.

The unfortunate truth, however, is that man insists on his own significance in the universe by creating endless paradigm for his actions.

Thus we have reasons of physics, disagreements of anatomy, descriptions of philosophy, and all filtered through the various misunderstandings inherent in unaccomplished and divergent martial arts.

And these are all justifications for one’s existence.

‘To be or not to be,’ placed in endless loop.

But the simple truth is if one practices the discipline, and this of widely varied arts such as Karate or Aikido,Tai Chi Chuan or Kenpo, then one is engaged in ignoring the mind; one is functioning in an emptiness of reason and a purity of awareness.

Survival blots out psychological ramifications, and puts an end to philosophical meanderings – and justifications – of the awareness trying to look at itself, but so very unable.

To sum, it is not all the reasons, but the source of reason, the ‘I am,’ that is responsible for conundrum, and the resolution therewith.

The easiest way to cut through the fog of the martial arts, to ignore the mind and to find the truth of the self, is through the logic of matrixing. To matrix the martial arts is to rid the art of silly significance, and to place all the elements and pieces in the correct and easily assimilate-able order.

Matrixing can be found at MonsterMartialArts.com. Further juxtapositions of martial arts philosophy, real as opposed to the justifications of students mired in the endless mirrors of their own minds, can be read at ChurchofMartialArts.com.

What Kind of Snakes You Should Kill at Monkeyland?

Up here at Monkeyland…

…snakes are God’s Critters, and you have to be careful which ones you kill.

Rattlesnakes you kill. They have triangular heads, precise diamond markings on their back, and rattles on the tip of their tails.

I killed one yesterday. Didn’t have a gun with snake shot (a bullet with little bee bee shot), or even a knife. So I laid a board across it’s neck and beat the head off with a stick.

martial arts snake style
If I didn’t, it would kill my dog, or cause the cows to run and break legs, or whatever.

Sorry, tree huggers, I love nature, but I live in a place where nature doesn’t always love me.

A bull snake you don’t kill. They look a bit like a rattler, which causes mistakes, but they don’t have rattles. I killed one the first time I saw it, out of panic, then found out I had made a grievous error. Grievous because bullsnakes will kill rattlers. Yikes! He was my friend!

Garter snakes are totally harmless. Long and skinny, with yellow lines running the length of their bodies.

And so on.

And, I saw a six foot rattler, with 9 beads on its tail, crawling into a hole in the dam. It was going after ground squirrels.

So, do I kill it? The ground squirrels are destroying the damn, which is vital for the cows during the summer. So a bad guy is doing me a favor. Do I kill it?

Unfortunately, yes. Measure the good v the bad, and make a decision. And that’s life up here at Monkeyland.

This newsletter is going to the guys who have subscribed to this blog. They have an interest in Monkeyland. Martial Arts and beyond, they are searching, or at least considering.

So, if you are reading this newsletter, order any of the matrixing courses, and that means any of the first twelve courses on this page, http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/, and I will give you, FREE, ‘Matrixing: The Master Text,’ which is going for $30.

The Sin of Martial Arts Pride

My martial arts hubris, and how I overcame it

Guest blog by Alaric Dailey

In my other articles I started that my original karate dojo may have been the best thing that ever happened to me.  If you haven’t read them you might find them interesting, especially the ones on Dojo-kun and Do vs Jitsu.

Among other things that I rarely see in other schools, each belt test consisted of kata, punching and kicking, hojo-undo etc, but they also included reading a book and a verbal book report.  The very first test was, like many styles, a yellow belt.  I will never understand having a rainbow of colors that DON’T get darker as they go…

That first test was quite an eye opener for me though, Sensei had added his own requirement, because he was not about making money, nor was he interested in having half-hearted students, nor students that would leave.  He wanted people that were going to forever be changed, and continue to practice for the rest of their lives.

The requirement he added?  Go to another martial arts school, and take a minimum of one class with them.  Give a verbal report.

This requirement, was a bit baffling, why take anyone just starting in your school, and require them to go try another school and possibly lose them?  Because it makes sure you are in the art that you will stick with.

For my yellow belt test, I took a 3 day introductory course to Tai-Chi, knowing nothing about any other martial art I made the mistake to trying to compare it to what I knew.  To give you some idea of what kind of apples and broccoli I was trying to compare, I was taking Pangainoon, and the first form you learn is Sanchin and the school I went to was doing Yang Tai Chi.

I made all sorts of uninformed, biased assumptions, I loved karate with a blind passion, and wanted to impress upon my sensei how much karate meant to me.  Thus I took the classes looking for what I perceived to be flaws and weaknesses in the art such as

* no application of technique – never did I get any instruction of “this is a block, this is a strike, this is what you are defending against”
* the stance was too wide – I was not given any explanation for a neutral bow, or why it would be a good stance.  In my mind Sanchin was the ultimate fighting stance.
* No power in their techniques – I had no understanding of chi power, even though Pangainoon teaches it, I hadn’t really even gotten an introduction.

I wilfully and with eyes open wide walked into a trap that ensares so many others.  I blinded myself to the benefits of other arts.

I was lucky that I didn’t entirely discount everything I learned. I continued to keep in contact with the Sifu, and shortly before he left for China, I had the opportunity to witness him do Tai-chi very fast, it was amazing.  Suddenly all the soft flowery techniques appeared to have power, and were obvious as to blocks and strikes.  At this point, I had also had enough Pangainoon to understand some of the techniques and chi.

I was lucky for many reasons, I was lucky that my Sensei had the confidence to send us other places. I was lucky that I choose a school that was so different that I was forced to re-evaluate what I was learning (even if it was only in the back of my mind).

Luck aside, my own belief that my karate style was the only “good” style, quickly crumbling down.  I wouldn’t have been able to overcome this false pride, had I not had these opportunities.

If you run a school, you will do your students a massive favor if you encourage them to go practice with other schools.

If you are a martial artist of any style, you can benefit from swallowing your ego and practising at other schools, especially those that are radically different than yours.  For example, if you do Tai-chi, you might want to try a boxing school, if you do Wing Chun, try Judo or Jujitsu, etc.

You never know, you might might new friends, you might learn something new.  As I often say “more bodies, means more opportunity to learn, especially when they are doing something other than you are doing”.

Alaric Daily began practicing the martial arts in 1992. Martial Art she has studied include Pangainoon, Karate, Kenpo, Wing Chun, Krav Maga, Judo, Jujitsu, Aikido, Bagua Zhang, and Tai Chi Chuan

About the Monkeyland Survival Book…

(first published in the Matrix Martial Arts Blog)

I remembered writing a Martial Arts article

back in the nineties,
and my editor actually added some stuff to it.
Very unusual,
he almost always
let my stuff slip through as written,
but this article mentioned the second amendment.

Did you know I was once kicked out of an airport
for carrying a kubotan?

A friggin’ keychain!
And, not as deadly as a sharpened pencil
if you happen to know how to use a sharpened pencil,
which I do.

But it got me ticked,
so I wrote the article,
and it was all on
the Department of Martial Arts.
(http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts-articles/martial-arts-laws-will-keep-you-legal/)

With all the laws passed to get rid of guns,
the point was that it was only a matter of time
before laws were passed
to get rid of martial arts.

You think not?

I once taught a fellow from the Soviet Union area,
and he was prohibited from studying martial arts.
Martial Arts were ONLY for police
and the sons of politicians.

Yes.
The sons of politicians.

Can anybody spell ‘Al Gore Junior?’

Anyway,
I thought this whole thing sort of silly,
until I ran into those kinds of experiences,
and realized how badly
our government has been abused.

And,
this morning I was thinking about it,
and I started laughing.

Did you know it is legal to carry a hammer down the street?
Do you know how much damage
you can do to somebody
with a balpeen hammer?
Heck,
you can put it in your belt,
walk into a police station with it,
twirl it around,
and nobody will even blink.

And,
now that we’re talking about it,
you can carry a handful of REALLY sharp nails in your fist.
Take out an eyeball with that one,
eh?
Or,
really feeling ballsy?
You can walk down the street with an ax.

It’s true!

And if anybody stops you,
you just say,
I’m on the way to a job,
or,
I’m going to my brother’s house.

What are they going to do?
Ban building tools?
Close down Home Depot?

It’s funny,
in this day and age
with things like nun chuck and sickles
on the endangered species list
nobody has started a martial art on farm tools.

Well,
anyway,
I was just thinking.
I hope you are, too.
Life’s too short not to think,
you know?

Now,
that all said,
I should mention
that this idea came from this manual I was writing.

The Monkeyland Survival Guide.

Well heck,
you all knew there’s a bit of the prepper in me.
Maybe even a lot.

So this is just one of the ideas in The Monkeyland Survival Guide.

The complete thing is over a hundred pages,
and it is the first three months of Monkeyland.
Complete with pictures.

The utter shock of moving into the wilderness,
of actually being off the grid.

No energy.

No water.

Wild animals.

People with guns.

This is what has actually happened.
Some of it will make you groan.
Some of it will make you laugh.

Some of it will make you question whether I really am
the leading martial arts thinker of our time.

I mean,
you’ll be slapping your head and saying,
‘He did…what?’

But…
once you get over the chuckles,
there are some serious questions here.

Want to put together a solar power system?
Like…right now?
Here’s how we did it.

Want to purify water?
Here’s how.

Want to know how to deal with life when
you don’t have a refrigerator…
you don’t have energy…
you don’t have TV…
and the animals are attacking you?

Want to be able to survive when
an atom bomb drops…
Want to continue living when
US currency stops being the world’s reserve?
Or how about something simple,
like an attack by Russians/terrorists/banksters/whatever?

How about this…
no matter what the event,
when the supermarkets run out…
would you like to know how to grow your own food?

This is the stuff we went through,
and it is hard core…fun.

That’s right.
FUN.

Because when you stop yelling at the TV for lying,
when you get out away from the government that tells you not to do anything…
WHEN YOU GET OFF YOUR ASS AND DO SOMETHING!
Then you are having fun.

You may not know it at the time…
but it is the time you will remember all your life.

It is the time you stepped up and did the job.

Here’s the link…

http://churchofmartialarts.com/bookstore/monkeyland-survival-guide/

And,
I just want to say a quick something.
Martial Arts are about survival,
and that means all kinds of survival.

Did you know that Mas Oyama went into the mountains
and trained in the freezing snow
for two years.

Did you know that Morihei Ueshiba,
went to northern Japan,
isolated himself in a farming community
for several years?

It’s all part of surviving,
of finding out who you are and what you can do.

No,
I don’t expect everybody to run screaming into the hills,
but you should at least have an idea
of how to survive beyond your forms and techniques.

So,
here it is,
a lot of good stuff
won by the dirt under my nails
and the headaches of really screwing up.
Take advantage now,
learn something outside of your normal experience,
and remember
you ten bucks is going to go directly
to helping Monkeyland.

Thanks.

Okay,
enjoy the week,
and have LOTS of good work outs,

Talk to you later…
Al

Martial Arts Meditation Done the Right Way!

Martial Arts Meditation and how to Make It Work!

There is a secret to Martial Arts Meditation, and this secret should be understood before one attempts ANY kind of meditation.

First, meditation, Martial Arts or otherwise, is very poorly defined. Ask any number of priests, buddhists, taoists, or any other religious person about meditation, and you will receive a variety of quite different answers. These answers may differ greatly and lead one in a variety of odd directions

martial arts meditation

Listen…

 
This writer’s introduction to meditation, for instance, was that if a person could focus his attention on one object for three minutes he could conquer the universe.

Try it. Light a candle or place an object on a shelf, or just have an image in your mind, and look at it and think only of it for three minutes. Hold that focus and do not allow any distraction; think only of that object. It is interesting.

One can achieve more focus in their awareness, and this can help you in life, but doesn’t it seem like there should be more instruction?

What should one focus on?

How does one object relate to all the universe?

Are there tricks to help one focus awareness?

Is this really meditation? Or just a mental trick?

One just feels that there is a truth to be understood here, but there is not enough data to make that truth obvious, even with three minutes, or three months, or three years, or three lifetimes!

So the secret of martial arts meditation is to listen.

Sit and listen to what is happening in the world around you.

Mind you, this is martial arts meditation because in the martial arts one analyzes the force and flow of objects in the universe, and in this simple listening exercise one is listening to the force and flow of objects in the universe.

The one thing that may happen is that you will find yourself focusing on, becoming aware of, tension around the eye area. This is likely because the eyes are the predominate tool of perception, and you are not using them. They are antsy and want to be used. So you have to force them to relax, tell them to relax, and focus on listening.

Do this simple martial arts meditation for three minutes; just listen, without interruption or distraction; when you can do this without break you will find yourself quite enlightened, and quite ready for the next step of meditation.

Do you know the 24 Neutronic Principles? That would give you 24 meditations after you have learned to listen.

Why You Need Martial Arts Discipline to Find God

Using Martial Arts Discipline to Find God

Martial Arts Discipline is pretty crucial when it comes to finding God, or defining any spiritual aspect of life. To understand this we must first define exactly what God is.

Most people agree that the concept of God as a white-haired old man is pretty far out there. That is man making the idea of God look like himself as a patriarch.

martial arts discipline

The answers are in your hand…if you have the discipline to look.

 
When you read the bible, or the Tao, or various books on Zen, you come across the idea that God can’t be defined.

What is the one thing in life that can’t be defined? Or, for that matter, seen, felt, or touched in any way?

Awareness.

Emotions, or abstracts such as emotions, can all be defined, and even experienced by looking at a sculpt or a painting, or even reading a good book.

But awareness can’t be touched or perceived.

So God is Awareness.

We all have awareness, and it is a good bet that we are all joined by a greater awareness, though we aren’t usually aware of this.

We could call this greater awareness…Greater Awareness.

And we could say that the universe is constructed of this Greater Awareness.

Read your bible now, substituting awareness and Greater Awareness for God in the appropriate places, and the thing makes a fair amount of sense.

Now comes the question: how does one increase awareness.

There are actually several methods.

One could meditate, which is to listen, which is to attempt to penetrate through to the divine through various mental methods.

One could study scripture and pray.

One could ignore the world in an attempt to find the Greater Awareness.

These methods work, but they are suspect to interpretation, and they don’t really define the universe.

To define the universe is the martial arts method.

Consider that the universe is nothing but objects flying through space. So one can study martial arts and become more aware of these objects. And thus more and more aware of the Greater Awareness.

One is using one’s awareness to define the universe, you see, and using one’s awareness leads to more awareness, and thus to the Greater Awareness of the universe.

Thus, the discipline of the martial arts becomes the most defined and easiest and surest method for discovering one’s own Greater Awareness, and even to discovering the Greater Awareness of his fellow man.

Indeed, a person without martial arts awareness is at a severe disadvantage in handling the universe, life, or understanding the concept of God.

Church of Martial Arts Is About to Open!

Monkeyland is Almost Here!

The physical reality of Monkeyland is happening. Over the next ten days we are making the move to 120 acres in Nipomo, California.

I have included a couple of overheads here, for your pleasure.

The first is a close up of the property. A trailer, a cabin, an open faced, tin garage, a few cargo containers. The perfect canvas for a dream, eh?

This second shot is higher up, shows the lack of neighbors. The squiggley line at bottom right is highway 166.

Not bad, eh? We’re off grid, have plenty of soil for planting, plenty of raw materials, and lots of space for working out. Heck, I’ll probably spend a few weeks just picking out places to work out and assessing whether they are good sites for permanent work out structures.

And, did I mention the garden for Tai Chi and pa kua and that sort of thing?

Wel, I will. Give me time.

Or, better yet, come up and find out how you can help create this. I’ll open the doors officially for visitors probably within the month.

Make sure you check out ‘The 24 Neutronic Principles.’ it is a hard core look at the concepts underlying everything, not just in the martial arts, but life! Now, off with you. It’s time for your workout!

The Madness of the Martial Arts Plan

The Martial Arts Plan of Monkeyland

Speaking of a martial arts plan, what a great day in the morn! eh?

The nice thing, this past few days and newsletters and blogs and articles and such, is that people are starting to see the overall grand scheme of Monkeyland, they are seeing the culmination of this martial arts plan.

There is the announcement of the land acquisition, and then there is the outline of the curriculum, and things are just coming together in this martial arts plan.

Can you slay your enemies and make…life?


You can see the direction of the martial arts at Monkeyland, and you can understand why Matrix Karate and Temple karate are so important, and you can understand why I focus on them so much.

Matrix Karate simply changes the way you think about the Martial Arts, put that together with the Master Instructor course, and you have a real one two punch.

The complete Matrix Karate package will probably include the small Perfect Karate, the Matrix Karate course, the 120 lessons to Black belt, and maybe a couple of other things.

The point being that if you don’t understand Matrixing, through Matrix Karate, before you come here, that’s going to be the very first thing you have to study.

And, Temple Karate, as presented at KangDukWon.com. An in depth checklist covering an amazing amount of material. You understand the important of Temple Karate because if you can do the first two levels before you even get to Monkeyland, then we simply check you out, award your certificates…gold sealed to indicate that you actually were promoted at the Church itself, and continue on with official monk studies.

So if you don’t have those courses, you’d better. It’s part of the overall martial arts plan.

Now, let me give a slight picture of what has happened so far.

I matrixed, and discovered neutronics, and decided that the world would be a better place if everybody knew the martial arts…the right martial arts. Fixed and corrected martial arts that impart all the real abilities that you read about, but rarely see. So I came up with a plan.

The plan was simple…

Write books and courses, which courses were, for the most part, already done.

Then write websites, selling matrixing courses, and getting people ready for Monkeyland.

Then find some land.

Then start building and create a paradise of martial arts.

So, technically, we’re on step three. And step four should officially begin in the next couple of weeks.

To me the really interesting thing is that every fit together, even the work I had done early on, before I started Matrixing.

And the more I do, the more it fits.

Honestly, some of this I don’t plan, it just fits.

Like the people I talk to on the web.

I don’t plan it, but when something is going haywire, when i need some data badly, somebody suddenly writes me off the internet, gives me direction, clarifies what is happening.

So the conclusion is this: life is an art.

Yes, the martial arts are an art, and you can see how they work.

But life is an art, living life the right way, making things happen that fit into a grander scheme, this is all an art.

So we live, and life is the canvas, and when we are done…is our life a masterpiece? Or is it a shambles?

A martial artist usually understands this, or easily accepts it, because he has already seen how life in the dojo, the mini-universe of the dojo, shapes up as a work of art.

Now, can you accept the larger picture?

Monkeyland is dedicated to the fact of this larger picture, of making life an art for all who come.

So you there!
