The name of the book is ‘Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do, and Neutronics.’
Written by Al Case, a martial artist with near fifty years experience in the martial arts, this book takes an outside viewpoint of Bruce Lee, and his martial art (Jeet Kune Do).
Click on the cover to discover the art of Bruce Lee!
Bruce Lee is often considered, specifically as to what drove him to his martial arts theories. The main focus of the book, however, is to compare and contrast Jeet Kune Do to the more classical martial arts, specifically, the author’s art of Karate.
This is a hard core book. While it is respectful, it is obvious that the author holds Mr. Lee in high esteem, there are some very hard questions asked concerning the formation of JKD, and the real purpose of the art.
It is also an intelligent book, going into Matrixing Technology, which is the first and only science of the martial arts, and Neutronic philosophy. The author claims that because JKD is an advanced martial art only advanced methods of thought can be used to analyze it.
Which is to say that if you are Beeavis or Butthead, you may want to avoid this tome. It won’t teach you Jeet Kune Do, and it may hurt your head to actually start thinking about it.
Mr. Case has, as said, near 50 years martial arts experience. He began Kenpo Karate in 1967, quickly became an instructor, and went on to study virtually every martial art that came down the pike during the Golden Age of Martial Arts. He became a writer for the magazines in 1981, and had his own column in Inside Karate. Thus, Mr. Case doesn’t enter the picture as a newbie, but an experienced fighter and writer. His compare and contrast with JKD should provide the most enlightened student with much thought.
Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do, and Neutronics, will be released and on Amazon within the week, and students interested in the paperback version should do a search on Amazon probably by the last week of April 2015.
Students who would like to save $5 and purchase the instant download of the book should go to FreeBruceLee.com.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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?
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.
Greetings to the Faithful! We are moving stuff up to Monkeyland this week. Lot of fun. 12 hour work day fun! Believe me, it’s a relief to get back on the typer and send out a message.
That said, the message today is…rattlesnakes! We’re up at Monkeyland, talking to the former owner, and now the truth comes out. When he was selling the property it was, ‘oh, we never see snakes around here.’ Now that the property is sold he says, ‘Had a rattlesnake crawl in the house last week. Only one button on the tail, couldn’t hardly hear the fellow. The young uns are the deadliest, you know. They latch on and they don’t know how to let go, just keep right on pumping that poison into you.
Official Emblem of The Church of Martial Arts
My wife is turning white. I’m laughing. This is California. rattlesnakes are old hat to me. Heck, I should make up a rattlesnake kung fu style. Specialize in the ‘one button strike,’ have some real fun.
I used to work at a school, lots of kids at places like that, and I was the official rattlesnake killer. Some kid would hear a buzzing, they’d call me, and I’d go kill the sucker.
Take a shovel and chop his head off.
Oh! How cruel! Unless he happens to bite your child. Then you thank me.
Anyway, you have to chop the head off, and don’t touch the fangs, and bury the head DEEP. Venom has a shelf life of 25 years. My son got stung by a bee when he was two, arm swole up like a water balloon. Doctor said the bee likely landed on a dead rattlesnake, picked up some venom. So my son got bit by a dead rattlesnake thanks to a bee.
And, if snakes aren’t enough, there’s bobcats and bears up there!
But the worst predator up there, the one the former owner made his wife carry a gun everywhere for, was the two legged kind.
Anyway, it is fun, I’m really happy because I don’t care a fig about rattlesnakes or bobcats or bears (oh my!) or even the really deadly two legged varmints. I know martial arts. And here is something interesting… Do you think the original monks at the Shaolin Temple didn’t have to deal with… snakes, tigers, deadly bugs, and all that sort of thing?
Heck! How do you think they came up with their martial arts? Maybe that tiger form is the result of a man who had to kill a tiger with only a knife?
So, come to Monkeyland, and maybe you’ll have to fight off a bear (grin) or tangle with a bobcat (he he) or wake up to find a rattlesnake tangled in your bedroll. (outright laughter)
Look, I’m kidding here, chances are you won’t see anything like that, but I just want to get the idea across, the martial arts are used in life or death situations. And life or death situations are definitely out of the comfort zone. So put aside your ho hum same old same old life, come dedicate yourself to a life and death art where the only distractions are having to eke out a living, and putting up with a two legged varmint like me. (bent over, slap the thigh, guffaw).
You can sleep in a cargo container, cook your food over an open fire, work out in an open faced tin garage, and it will be something you ALWAYS remember.
And, who knows, maybe you’ll like it enough to become a live in monk. Rattlesnakes, bobcats and bears, (oh my!)
Oinkey dokely? Fine and dandy? See ya. Al
If you’ve got the Matrix Karate course, you should look into KangDukWon.com. The more you know before you get here, the sooner you’ll become an official monk.
I’ve rewritten this as a blog, and will be taking it off the site as a page. The follow up to this is a few minutes away!
As I write this we are two weeks away from going to Monkeyland.
It is a 120 acre plot below San Luis Obispo.
It is the culmination of several years of intense work.
Frank C., the genius of this transaction, waited, plotted, and scored!
And he happens to like the Martial Arts.
Thus, I am being set free on a mountaintop with the duty to teach as many as will come.
Here is the view looking across the valley (east?) from the back porch.
Cattle graze in the this valley, and we have plans to raise our own uncontaminated, non GMO, natural brand Rib Eyes.
Notice that you are looking down a hill, this may take some terracing so that we can grow some uncontaminated, non GMO, natural brand veggies to side those Rib Eyes.
Here is a picture to the right (south?) of the back porch.
Hilltops. Perfect for temples, dojos, or perhaps a mansion for Frank. Believe me, when you find out what he went through to make this happen, you will fight for the chance to lay the first brick for his digs.
Here is a picture to the left (north?) of the porch.
The water tank on the hill is perfect for a large bamboo surrounded patio for internal arts practice.
Behind the water tank is about a zillion acres of BLM. Bureau of Land Management. Perfect for taking those forty day sojourns into the wilderness. Commune with the mountain lions and bears. Do martial arts where there are NO distractions.
Obviously, there is a lot of planning to do, and a LOT of work. This is a blank canvas upon which can be writ the greatest martial arts temple to ever grace the western world. And YOu are invited!
I’ll be writing a lot more in the coming weeks and months. I have to work on the Monkeyland website, put packages together, see about forums, and all sorts of other stuff. Not to mention building greenhouses and installing windmills and all sorts of other stuff.
But, could there be a more perfect environment to create your martial arts?
So, stay tuned, and subscribe to the monster newsletter, and I’ll keep you updated.

Don’t forget to check out the first book…Prologue!
There are seven pages under that page, and there is yet much work to be done.
Official Emblem of The Church of Martial Arts
The course of studies to be offered at and through Monkeyland includes seven stages, from Postulant (seeker), to Abbot. This is a logical presentation, based on logic and geometry and tied together by Matrixing, of the following seven steps.
Postulant ~ Matrix Karate
Novice ~ Temple Karate
3rd Monk ~ Shaolin Kung Fu
2nd Monk ~ Pa Kua Chang
1st Monk ~ Tai Chi Chuan
Priest ~ Weapons
Abbot ~ Research and Development
The pages are in the outline stage at present, but future work will include full packages, including Neutronics and other material.
For those of you who have been following Monster Martial Arts over the years, the larger picture is now understandable.
It should be stated that the ‘lite’ courses offered here – lite martial arts courses – will shortly be canceled. They may be included in the packages, for they are valuable, especially to the person who has little martial arts experience, or little martial arts experience in a specific Martial Art.
Also, prices of courses at Monster Martial Arts may be going up in the near future.
All proceeds will go towards supporting The Church of Martial Arts, also called Monkeyland, and I thank you for your donations.
People interested in keeping up with the goings on at Monkeyland should subscribe to this blog, which is now called the Monkeyland Gazette. Subscription box is in the top of the right sidebar at the ChurchofMartialArts.com.
Let me explain the difference between Matrixing and Neutronics.
Matrixing establishes an overall grid
by which you can ascertain the truth of motion…
in relation to the universe.
You’ve got to understand this,
in Matrixing you are still limited by the universe.
Do enough matrixing,
and you aren’t limited,
you get to Neutronics.
stay with me here,
I’m about to take a left turn.
If you matrix the human spirit enough
you end up with the truth of spirit.
I matrixed religion,
and that gave me virtue.
Virtue is the statement of human experience in this universe.
Stand with virtue,
and you grow larger.
and you grow smaller.
It’s an interesting truth.
But that is only religion,
and religion is not always right.
Religion is too often slanted
by personal interest,
by the quirks of the human soul,
sounds a bit like the write up on Matrix Karate,
I matrixed the human spirit,
and I found something interesting.
Matrix the human spirit enough
and you end up with the truth of spirit.
You can’t matrix any further at this point,
because the spirit has no motion,
and the universe is the illusion of motion
that one has created to give oneself experience.
Neutronics kicks in
that one might understand this state of ‘no motion.’
Matrixing is for motion,
Neutronics is for no motion.
Neutronics is matrixing at the spiritual level,
but the transformation of understanding that occurs here
makes the normal matrixing graphs invalid,
and demands a different but senior set of datums.
in my universe,
was backed up by my experience of enlightenment,
by doing sticky hands and getting out of my body,
seeing the universe as motion
from a motionless point.
So experience backed up theory.
here is the problem.
I wrote the books on Neutronics
removed from the martial arts.
I was interested in the datums,
and how they related to the universe,
and not through the slant of martial arts.
What this means is that if you get any books on Neutronics,
your mind gets blown,
but there isn’t a lot to connect it to the martial arts.
how do we relate Neutronics,
how do we USE Neutronics
when it comes to martial arts?
we seek that state of motionlessness
that is the truth of you.
We find the viewpoint that is apart from your body,
that exists forever,
and puts on bodies like suits of clothes,
and discards them when done.
We do this by finding perfection of motion through the forms.
We find perfection by having the right data..by applying Matrixing.
by doing the above
you increase your awareness.
This is crucial and even the point of it all.
before I give you my example
of how to use Matrixing in the Martial Arts,
I want to say that everything I say here
is also backed up in religions texts.
Specifically the Patanjali,
if you know enough Neutronics,
you can see what all the religious texts are talking about.
here is an example of neutronics,
bear in mind that if you use neutronics
no situation can become physical.
People on the Matrix level still need the physical,
People on the Neutronics level
can defeat attackers without moving the body.
I walk into a room,
there are a dozen people there,
I scan them,
make note of all positions,
then I say something in a loud, booming, commanding voice, like…
‘How are my slaves today?’
‘The reason I called you all together…’
I watch them.
There are three potential responses,
and only three.
away from me,
or with me.
One response is,
‘What you mean slave?’
Aggression is directed towards me.
Another response is,
‘Who’s the crazy guy?’
Pushing me away.
Third and last response,
the guy who smiles,
says something like,
‘We’re fine, massa.’
He didn’t go away or towards,
he maintained balance.
He is sure of himself,
he is in the moment,
instead of reacting to my borderline communication,
he stayed with it,
never lost himself,
and he is the one I will gravitate to.
let’s say I’m talking to the balanced one,
and the guy who got aggressive comes up to me,
I know he’s coming towards me,
and I have done enough matrixing
that I never have to resort (grin) to martial arts.
I have choices.
I can go towards him,
away from him,
I can just balance him.
To balance him all I need to do is pick a direction
that will establish a distance
and maintain it.
this is a circle.
I know somebody out there is going to think,
is he a blocker, a jammer, or a runner…
oh, Al is doing Aikido or Pa Kua or…?
That would be the kenpo slant on Neutronics.
Or the Aikido slant on Neutronics.
Or some other stylistic version of Neutronics.
has no slant.
It is the truth,
Blocker, jammer or runner comes from Neutronics.
Neutronics doesn’t come from kenpo.
Circling comes from Neutronics,
Neutronics doesn’t come from circling.
You have to assess which is the truth here,
and which is the version.
And you have to remember that I am doing this mentally,
with no physical motion.
I circle or sidestep or go towards or away in my mind,
and that handles the reality of him
with no need for motion.
This brings us to an interesting point,
everything becomes weird
when you fold emotions into the matter.
Ever see somebody who is running angrily away?
His body is going one way,
and his emotions are going the other,
and how the heck do you handle that?
do enough Neutronics,
and you can.
And you can handle it with a sudden glow of spirit,
that pulls the plug on the twist of emotions,
and the odd manifestation of motion and emotion.
The trick is this,
everybody thinks they know about this stuff,
I knew that.
But they don’t.
They are still locked in systems,
running the maze of tricks and confusion,
arguing over styles,
or having opinions on techniques,
or just generally holding the opinion that they,
that their art,
And they have never gotten out of the maze
and achieved the overall viewpoint.
They haven’t gotten out because they have never done Matrixing.
Read the wins,
the fellows with the most experience,
the ones deepest into the maze,
are the ones most grateful for Matrixing.
But the point is this,
Neutronics is not a slant,
it is a moment of pure you
that lasts forever,
and enables you to solve problems
as they happen.
Neutronics is not be bound by a system,
but to be unbound in the moment.
I could give you endless examples,
for all life is but an infinite manifestation of neutronic principles.
But what is important is that you do the martial arts,
find the logic in them by matrixing.
Don’t settle for…
this technique connects to this one connects to that one…forever,
but establish a grid by which every martial arts technique has it’s place,
and the interconnection of techniques obvious.
find the principles,
do the Matrix until everything becomes crystal clear,
and you will find yourself,
and then you will understand Neutronics
in a way most difficult to describe.
Neutronics is you,
it is the rules for operating this universe,
a universe that you didn’t even know you created.
Neutronics is the ‘you-niverse.’
We do have a new pope. Over a billion people in the world have a new spiritual leader. As the leader of the Church of Monkeyland, I thought it appropriate that I say a word or five.
First, congrats to the new Pope. His original name was George Bergoglio, but he’s going to go by the alias of Pope Francis. I am sure there is a number after that, but I sure don’t know what it would be.
Now go get them moneylenders!
Now, this new Pope is considered a saint, and that’s good. The bad news…saints don’t fight back.
So how is this new Pope going to trash the moneylenders and send them packing, eh?
It’s a good question. And, I would like to let the Pop know (I know he is reading this blog, is, in fact, a faithful follower of this blog,) that if he wants to pilgrimage to Monkeyland I will give him a few free lessons in the martial arts.
It’s true. All he has to do is show up on my doorstep, with the proper attitude (but, please, do without the fancy robes), and I will give him lessons that result in him being the meanest, the baddest, the greatest Pop Pope ever to walk the walk.
I figure we’ll start out with some soft Tai Chi, lengthen his life a bit, enable him to enjoy being a Pop longer than normal. Hey, let’s face it, these guys are old, they don’t last long, they need every bit of help they can get!
Then, we’ll shift into some Shaolin, show him how to move and groove in the middle of the worst streetfight imaginable.
Why, when I get done with him, he will be renowned as the fightinest Pope ever to wear the robe.
And, if any of you fellows out there want to get a little religion in your martial arts, I can teach you, too.
Of course, it might be more appropriate if you started out at Monster MArtial Arts, picked up some Matrixing, and then got yourself seriously serious.
