Rhythmic Freestyle and Matrixing Punching

More HanaKwanMass to you,
and some super HanaKwanMass workouts!

video 23 shows you how to teach somebody how to freestyle
in mere minutes.

Quite serious about this.
I’ve used Rhythmic Freestyle for decades,
and here’s the key.

When I was taught freestyle
the instructor put me in a stance
told me to try to block him,
and then he beat the hell out of me.

there is something absolutely enervating about freestyle,
and I was hooked.
it took me some four years to overcome the loss he handed me.
You see,
I didn’t learn anything.
I learned that he could hit me at will,
but that doesn’t teach me anything.

At the Kang Duk Won I spent a couple of years
doing freestyle drills,
before I was ever let to do unlimited freestyle.
That got me through ‘fighting,’
and into being able to think in the middle of combat.
it took a long time.
So I came up with Rhythmic Freestyle
as a solution.

It teaches a person how to analyze,
not react,
and does so fast,
without squashing the student.

The secret here is that when you do rhythmic freestyle
you start out slow,
and you never go faster than you know.
And you learn to LOOK>

you are not losing,
you are winning.

The thing is,
you’ve heard me say
that you learn from your mistakes.

Losing by being beat up by a senior belt is not a mistake.
It is losing to a bully.

So the the secret is to look at what you are doing.
Not struggle to understand reactions that are happening
and teaching you nothing.

You look.
And you don’t try to beat the other fellow,
you feed him,
nice and easy,
and he learns to look.

You take on the teacher’s viewpoint.

you’ll understand when you start doing Rhythmic Freestyle,
you’ll understand
that you can teach a fellow how to use the martial arts in a fight,
until you actually teach him martial arts,
and allow him to look,
and to see martial arts.

last word on this,
you don’t have to stay slow for long,
the rule is…
go as fast as you know,
if your partner knows what you are going to do…
speed it up,
give it to him fast.
Within an hour or two
you will be moving as fast as anybody,
you will have analyzed your mistakes,
and be learning things.

Not losing because you don’t know martial arts
and have been thrown in a ‘ring’ before you are ready,
but winning because you have been allowed to look,
to see the lessons,
to create the lessons.

Pay attention,
I go over some of the principles
I detail in the book,
‘The Punch.’
This is how you make energy,
and shake it out your fist.

You might have to go over this video a few times,
make sure you’ve got what I’ve said,
it can slip past if you’re not quick.

Matrixing the straight punch.

There are eight combos,
but these combine into only four sequences.
Here they are,
and if you practice them,
with grounding and body alignment
and breathing and CBM
(Coordinated Body Motion)
then your first punch in a fight
can end the fight.
Of course,
it depends on how assiduously you practice.
Make sure you understand what assiduously means.

Last but not least,
a few things you should know.

I’m still working on the book,
but it is slow going.

I am working on the PayPal button,
which is not directing newbies to the right page.
In the next week or so
I will be sending you the password page link
for the last month.
Starting to archive the vids,
but you should have access to them.
But feel free to download and save.

Send me wins.
Send me questions or difficulties,
but the wins make my day,
and I love to share with others,
gets them excited.

more later.
Thanks to all,
HanaKwanMass to all,
a great work out to all!
