Accelerating Karate into Kung Fu Freestyle
A happy work out to you.
Lots of happy work outs to you.
Thanks for the response to the Rolling Fists video,
this newsletter is going to be about Rolling Fists,
but let me meander a bit,
there’s a lot of stuff on the course,
and I want to make sure people understand
what I am doing on it.
Here’s the URL,
before I go on.
I’ve got large martial arts sites,
have been selling courses for half a dozen years,
and this is the first course to really go into fighting.
just about every course has its freestyle method,
and Matrix Combat is a very thorough overview,
but…it was time I did this.
I probably need to do this for each step
of the freestyle method
outlined in Matrix Combat.
before I go on,
Matrix Combat is offered free
when you order Rolling fists.
The first few orders it will be mailed separately,
but it is all coming together now.
The problem with most freestyle methods
is that they devolve into fighting,
people get jumpy,
and how you going to learn
when you don’t trust your partner?
learn to do freestyle
in a method which builds trust,
doesn’t fall into a contest,
then data can be exchanged,
and the learning process can take effect.
the Freestyle method I do on Matrix Karate
works at the entering distance of a fight,
and creates intuition fairly fast.
The next problem,
is how to close up the distance,
which decreases the amount of time
one has to respond,
and keep and enhance the intuition.
The way to do this is to build and hold
to a distinct concept.
Concept training is always
ten times faster than normal training.
Normal training you have to repeat something ten thousand times
searching for this thing called ‘muscle memory,’
which is actually a false concept.
To call a reaction a muscle memory
is to say that the body did it.
But intuition is when you do it.
on the Rolling Fists video
we close up the distance,
speed up the hands,
and present the concept.
It is so logical
it is absorbed almost instantly by the student.
there are lots of things I go into on this course.
the pieces of the concept
retaining and building intuition.
and so on.
One of the most important things I go into is
is increasing impact by lessening effort.
This is an odd concept
which seems to be the reverse of normal teaching,
but which is the essence of the true art.
Think about it this way…
muscles don’t hit,
The key is to get out of the muscles,
get out of the body,
and throw the body at somebody.
Throw the body
and focus the impact in a smaller area.
This is a hard concept for some people,
they have been sold so much bushwah
on the importance of muscle.
muscles are important,
nothing wrong with a good,
physical work out.
It is the mental game that is most important.
the message here
is that to understand what I have said so far,
you should know more than one art.
when I was teaching EW this stuff,
I was teaching him a second art.
I was teaching him
the Shaolin Butterfly.
The thing is,
if you have more than one art,
then you likely have enough the degree of polish,
the amount of refined control,
to understand and apply this second stage of freestyle.
Make no mistake,
it is an accelerated freestyle.
Once you have done it for a few months
you are going to find that it is pretty extreme.
in the beginning,
it looks like just a simple exercise,
but as your perceptions increase,
as you become more able to see what is happening,
and to use the concepts in ‘regular fighting,’
you will suddenly note
that you have made yourself
a huge and distinct advantage
over Joe Normal,
and even over various systems
that claim to have the best freestyle methods,
but are missing the Rolling Fists piece.
And the Rolling fists is missing.
I named it Rolling Fists,
and avoided the name lop sau,
because it goes so very much further
than that drill ever went.
it is a method of freestyle that you have never seen
except on my courses.
it works ten times faster
to make you twice as good.
I’ve rambled enough,
hopefully made a few points,
and i thank you for the opportunity
to explain these things.
I hope what i have said is timely,
and encourages you.
have yourself a great and wonderful week,
and here’s the Rolling fists URL again
and I’ll talk to you later.
