A couple of days ago I saw a herd of cows coming up the road to Monkeyland.
Now, I’ll teach just about anybody, but I won’t teach cows. Cows eat the crops, eat the bark off of carefully tended trees, drop their crap everywhere, and are good for nothing but rib eye.
So I went to the porch and gave them a kiai.
They froze in place, stared up at me.
“Do not come up here!” I boomed. Echoes of my voice rounded the valley, burning my stereophonic instructions into their bovine brains.
They stood, in a quandary, unsure as to what to do.
I repeated my instructions. Again and again.
And the cows went up the other road, away from Monkeyland.
My wife laughed. The idea of me treating cows like…like politically correct morons, and getting away with it.
Only in Monkeyland.
So last night we heard the coyotes howling.
We can’t have coyotes in Monkeyland. They eat the cats, and then the mice don’t get eaten, and the mice then crawl up under the engines of our machines and eat the wires. So, no coyotes. I won’t teach them, and I certainly won’t have them eating our cats.
In a flash I was out on the porch, three in the morning, nekkid, booming my kiai howl across the hills. Dog stood beside me and stared up at me in wonder.
Echoes faded out and a deep silence filled the valley.
The coyotes had been warned, and that by the Pope of Monkeyland.
Satisfied, I went to sleep.
Well, almost satisfied.
I have driven off the cows and coyotes, I am making a place fit for martial arts students of the finest caliber.
So, in my best, booming kiai…COME!

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.
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.
