Win #32–No More Monkey See Monkey Do Karate

We memorize, you see. We memorize the karate kata, we memorize the Karate technique, and we monkey see monkey do without ever thinking about it.

The proof is that you are saying, ‘Oh, I know about that.’ Everybody says that, until they come across Matrixing, and then the light goes on. That’s why so many of these wins are about people scrambling to readjust their systems once they have matrixing technology at hand.

There is knowing about, and there is knowing, and that is the difference between somebody working out, even after multiple degrees of black belt, and somebody who has found the true art. Here’s a snippet of me doing a karate kata. The techniques are not memorized, they are not practiced, they are created on the spot. They don’t look polished because they are real, which is a very difficult concept for some people to understand.

Here’s a great win.

“After studying the material and applying it to my art of Chinese Kenpo Karate, I feel that its concepts and principles have truly been a benefit as they have given me the key to understand thoroughly what I have been mindlessly practicing for all these years. No more monkey – see, monkey – do karate, I now have the keys to mastering every technique from the most basic, to the most advanced. I have actually coined a phrase for my students; ‘knowing a technique comes from understanding ‘how’ it is performed (outward mechanics). Mastering a technique comes from understanding why a technique is performed and all of the concepts and philosophies involved to make it work’. Mastery is something that is seldom taught in today’s martial arts schools.”

When you understand the difference between ‘knowing about,’ and can move into ‘knowing,’ then we’re on the same wavelength.
