I’m speaking as a martial arts teacher here, but I trust you will be able to use my data concerning the hardest thing to overcome in Karate training, or any martial arts training.
I’ve had people come in my school and tell me what I was supposed to teach them. They would lay out their curriculum, and then disappear.
And, if you think this is an oddity, consider the old Japanese zen parable (made famous by Bruce Lee), you can’t put more tea in a cup that is full…you must empty your cup.
One guy came into my school and all he wanted to do was find a temple on the mountain and kneel at the feet of the master and learn all the really secret things. It was obvious that he had been reading too many comic books; he just wasn’t connected to reality. Heck, if I had told him to do a horse stance for five minutes he would have cried and wailed like a baby.
The main thing these days is the youtube martial artist. This is a guy who has poured over youtube, looked at all the martial arts, done what he saw on the screen. He actually isn’t toobad, except that he has no idea what he is doing. The snippets on youtube, no matter how extensive, are not instruction, they are advertising clips designed to lure the unwary and easily excitable.
What? You thought you were going to find the secret of the universe on the internet? that you could just google ‘Secrets of the Universe’ and they would just flash onto the scree…instant enlightenment and all the martial arts downloaded into your brain like Neo?
Empty your cup, grasshopper, then learn how to sweat. The best things in life are not necessarily free…they have to be earned with sweat and bruises and a humble attitude.

…will lessen confusions for not just the student but the instructor as well…hence, the art will stick around for a while. Less confusion means more students.–WG
The point here is…where do the confusions come from? They come from what you don’t know. You see, when people become martial arts teachers, they learn the martial arts, but they don’t take classes on how to teach, or the physics involved in the martial arts, or about a thousand other things. Look, martial arts provides a great apprenticeship, but you need more. You need actual knowledge. That’s why the Master Instructor Course is selling likle hot cakes, and why people are blown out by it, and why it works so well. It tells you the physics of the universe, but from the martial arts point of view, and that changes people. So if you learn these physics, you can answer questions, not just say ’that’s what my instructor said to do,’ and, as a martial arts instructor, you’ll keep students.
I tell you, the guys who are using the data on this course are keeping students, and their schools are growing, and the economy doesn’t matter at all!
