When I was learning how to do Karate Freestyle the instructor would tell us harder, faster. No matter how hard I trained, how ever, the guys who had studied longer than me could still beat me. Check out the video, then I’ll tell you how I turned the tables.
Then, along about black belt time, this guy was promoted in front of me. We had been training the same length of time, but he was promoted before me, and suddenly he could beat me in freestyle.
Wait a minute! I was better than him, and until he got promoted, I could beat him!
I quickly realized that his confidence had gone up, and that this was a secret to freestyle that nobody knew.
So I went back to trouncing him.
And, now that I had figured it out, I jacked my confidence and started trashing a lot of other people.
Those guys who had studied longer than me? They were now my meat.
Now, you still need some rudimentary training, but I use methods that jack up confidence, and my students learn to freestyle in an hour or two.
Got proof on the Black Belt Course. I filmed myself taking somebody to Black Belt, and in the over twenty hours of filming we did freestyle for about an hour, and you can see that at the end of his instruction he doesn’t blink or hesitate, he just confidently moves in and fights without fear.
It’s the training method I use, and nobody else uses it. Heck, nobody knows it, and it is almost diametrically opposed to the methods currently used.
Anyway, if you’re interested in learning how to do Freestyle the right way, or you just want to find out a bit more about the training methods I use, pop over to LearnKarateOnline(dot)net. Heck, take a free lesson while you’re there.
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.
