Karate Freestyle Makes for Human Punching Bag!

“Try to use what you’ve learned,” my instructor said, and then he beat the crap out of me in Karate Freestyle class.

Well, of course he did. I only had five lessons. I didn’t know anything. Wasn’t a chance in heck I could stand up to him.

Now, I didn’t mind being beaten up. For a white boy from suburbia, it was sort of novel, and an education.

But, half the people who walk into a dojo walk out again after experiencing this method of freestyle training.

So I put together a better way. Read this win.

“I have also always wondered what was learned when a beginning student went full speed with the instructor, other than learning how to get beat up.  Going through rhythmic freestyle and one in the center, and finally to freestyle, I did get to the point where I was analytical and knew what was going on.  So from experience I can say that going through gradients of speed and being able to analyze at slower speeds is infinitely more beneficial than being a punching bag.”

Tell the truth, this is an old win, and the methods I use now are ten times faster than that, which was ten times faster than the classical methods. But the point is this…freestyle is an awareness game. It’s not a who’s faster game, it’s a who knows more game. Anybody who tells you different is a thug and a bully, and they want to charge you lots of money to beat you you.

Well, it’s up to you.

You can learn, and you can learn the right way, or you can keep right on putting your face on the line. I produced a mini course to acquaint people with the various methods of freestyle. It’s only a snippet, but it give you the over view of freestyle, and shows how the thing can really come together. It’s called Matrix Combat. I used to call it Dharma Combat. It certain beats heck out of getting the heck beat out of you in Karate Freestyle Class.

Win #4 Do You Know How to Use Karate in a Fight?

Before we start, here’s a form I’ve been doing for a while. Works pretty good, and I can actually use the form in freestyle.

I love this win, because a lot of people don’t really know how to use Karate in a fight. They think it is forms, a bunch of dry exercises, posing. Man, Real Karate is definitely not that!
We used to do the forms to get strong and fast, then we took those suckers apart and figured out how to use them on the mat.
There was a fellow back then, name of Ron, used to clean up the mat with me. I asked him how valuable forms were to him. He started using Kata techniques on me in freestyle! Imean, right out of the form, and I was double ass kicked! Sucker knew how to fight, and it was because he knew how to understand the forms.
Here’s the win from a guy I taught forms to.
I now know what to do if I get in a fight and how to avoid a fight. I am very confident in what I am doing. I feel great about my skill and efficiency. I loved this course because it was short and concise with an end result of certainty and knowledge of martial arts. It was great. Love–Herb S.
Do you see it? Not cocky, not a bully, just confident. That’s what realknowledge does for you, that’s what real karate does, and if you know how to read the forsm then you’ll know how to use karate in a fight.
You guys take care, and I’ll see ya over at MonsterMartialArts.com
