Advanced Methods of Learning Martial Arts and the Three Types of Thought
This bit of writing is going to be about the three types of thinking and how they apply to martial art instruction. Knowing the four types of human thinking alters the way people think and learn. This can make learning martial arts as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.
The first thing to be understood int his subject is that people try to learn by viewing the whole picture. They look at the world, try to see the whole thing, and this method of thought is called Mosaic. This is the method utilized by savages, people who need a science of chipping flint spearheads, but no higher abstract.
As mankind evolves linear thought makes an appearance, and this is the sequencing of pieces of data. This includes numbers, different sequences of data so as to facilitate the absorption process that is considered to be learning. This is a much more efficient way of inputting data, and of creating abstracts of data which are necessary to create a civilization, and a functioning human being in that civilization.
The learning method of the martial artist is somewhere between the mosaic and the linear. He is memorizing sequences of techniques, but they are random, muddled, don’t always fit together easily. Consider a technology depending upon the sequencing of concepts such as of 4, S, 2, &, 5, horse, 7, re, pineapple…that is how the martial arts are taught.
When one ‘Matrixes’ a martial art, however, the techniques and general knowledge necessary to learning martial arts have been put in the correct sequence. The result is a better way of learning, for which I coin the term ‘matrixing.’ In this method one absorbs the pictures (completed mosaics) fast enough to absorb whole strings of completed pictures…not single items, but whole and completed pictures.
The only difficulty in this method is that people are often caught and muddled by other methods that they can’t put aside those methods for matrixing. A martial arts master who has learned by the linear method might not be able to put aside that linear method for the matrixing method. It doesn’t happen a lot, but when it does happen the martial artist should probably just continue with his methods and stay away from matrixing.
The final result of matrixing is that the mind becomes intuitive, gets used to working in a more efficient way, and all sorts of other subjects are quickly and easily absorbed. People have been using Matrixing to learn school subjects like math, how to work the internet, how to film movies, how to coach baseball teams, and so on, with incredible results. The best way to learn how to matrix, however, is through learning martial arts.
Matrixing was specifically developed through a study of the martial arts. A variety of martial arts styles have been matrixed and are available, simply mouse to Monster Martial Arts for more data.
