Hey! How Much Do You Bench Press? There’s a reason why the bench press is the most popular lift in the gym: it lets you lift more weight and activate more muscle in the upper body than any other move. With just this one lift, you can work your deltoids, your pecs, your triceps, forearms, abdominals, and even your hand muscles. What you didn't know is bench press is also good for punching ... Wow! But what if I told you there is an exercise many trainers and experts including myself consider the “King” of exercises, would you be interested in learning? Add two more moves and you’ve got a complete body workout. Squat and deadlift. That’s it. If you didn't know, squats target your glutes (butt), while working your quads and hamstrings and calves and doubling up on your abs. Which is good for kicking. You can never get enough work on your abs, especially when you are being kicked and punched in them for competition or in a self-defense situation, right? Now round out and wrap up your workout (and your backside) with the deadlift. Everything from your neck down to your calves, your whole spine and back, gets strengthened with the deadlift. With all those muscle groups being affected, you need to train correctly to maximize your gym time and your weight training time. This book is going to make sure you do just that.

Anytime an individual decides to learn how to protect themselves, learn self defense, or become a better person, one thing comes to mind – martial arts. Martial arts are very common these days, being practiced all over the world. The martial arts have been used for many centuries, although they really became famous around the time of Bruce Lee. Bruce invented the style of Jeet Kune Do, which involves very fast strikes with amazing counter defenses. Once people began to see just how fast Bruce Lee could move, they began to look into martial arts and see just how it could benefit them.

Being a martial artist is not just about kicking, punching and tossing people about. It is about the way you think and the way you live. The lessons taught in martial arts classes should be taken away and applied in daily life. Adopting a martial artist’s mindset can change your perception of the world around you and affect your life in a very positive way. Living the martial way is about achievement, success and overcoming any obstacle. These are some of my philosophies, training thoughts and stories that should enable you to get on the path to the martial way, even if you don’t actively practice a martial art.
Is it really true that martial arts, in spite of their popularity in this day and age of ours, have, at their deepest level, the promised land of “self-knowledge,” “the expression of beauty,” or something highly spiritual to be pursued for the human soul? Or, to put it in a different way, what exactly makes martial arts so amazing that, somehow, they will eventually lead the practitioners to the spiritual realm of self-cultivation in its highest depth? Contrary to the conventional wisdom about martial arts as held by many over the ages, this popular view about martial arts has become so legendary that their dark sides have yet to be systematically explored and that the lofty aims of martial arts are neither possible nor desirable to the extent that their proponents would like us to believe. Of course, this is not to say that the very tradition of martial arts is absolutely useless, or that the literature on martial arts hitherto existing in history is spiritually unworthy to be appreciated. Instead, this book constructively offers an alternative (better) way to understand the nature of martial arts, in special relation to the body and spirit of warriors—while learning from different views in the literature, without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, as they are not necessarily compatible with each other), and, in the end, transcending them towards a new horizon not conceived before. This seminal view, if proven valid, will fundamentally change the legendary way that people have thought about martial arts—from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its “post-human” fate. _____________________
Teaching martial arts is not merely the development of skills and techniques in others. Teaching martial arts is a life-changing transformational process for both the students and teachers. The Zen expression of "pointing at the moon" acknowledges the inherent difficulties in bringing other people to a higher level of personal understanding.

Jonathan Bluestein's Research of Martial Arts is a book about the true essence of martial arts. It includes neither instruction on deadly killing techniques, nor mystical tales of so called super-human masters. Rather, it is a vast compilation of seriously thought-out observations made on the subject by the author, as well as many other martial artists and scientists, with a slight touch of history and humour. The goal of this project had from the start been to surpass the current standard in the martial arts literary market, and offer readers worldwide something which they have never seen before. In essence, a book in which are found countless answers for martial arts practitioners which they cannot be read elsewhere, which address commonly discussed martially-related topics with breadth and depth unparalleled in other works to this day (in any language). It holds among its pages no less than 220,000 words, containing knowledge which would be coveted by many. The aim of this book is to present the reader a coherent, clear-cut, and in-depth view of some of the most perplexing and controversial subjects in the world of martial arts, as well as providing a healthy dose of philosophical outlook on these subjects (from various individuals). At its core is the author's aspiration to build a stronger theoretical foundation for the discussion of martial arts, while addressing matters in innovative ways, which I have come to believe, would help people to better grasp the nature of these arts. There are books by authors who will tell you that some aspects of the martial arts are too complex for concrete, coherent and defined explanations. Others have used ambiguous terminology to explain what they could not pronounce otherwise. This is no such book. This book was written to provide you with the solid, applicable answers and ideas that you could actually understand, and take away with you. This book is mainly comprised of three parts: | Part I: From the Inside Out – External and Internal Gong Fu | This is essentially mostly a very long & thorough discussion of martial arts theory and practice. Traditional and modern concepts and methods are discussed through the mediums of Physiology, Biology, Anatomy, Psychology, Philosophy (Western and Oriental alike), sports science, and the author's personal experiences. The Internal Martial Arts of China receive a special, lengthier treatment in this part of the book. | Part II: Contemplations on Controlled Violence | This one is of a Philosophical and Psychological nature, and contains the author's thoughts on the martial arts and their manifestation in our daily lives, with guest-articles by various martial arts teachers. | Part III: The Wisdom of Martial Spirits: Teachers, and the Things They Hold Dear | This part includes various interesting and comprehensive interviews with distinguished martial arts masters, spanning dozens of pages each. Every one of the interviewees is a person whose views and ideas are thought provoking and well-worth reading. The teachers interviewed in this book are: Master Chen Zhonghua (Chen Taiji Quan) Master Yang Hai (Xing Yi Quan, Bagua Zhang and Chen Taiji Quan) Shifu Strider Clark (Tongbei Quan, Wu style Taiji, Shuai Jiao and more) Shifu Neil Ripski (Traditional Drunken Fist and many others) Sifu James Cama (Buddha Hand Wing Chun and Southern Praying Mantis) Itzik Cohen Sensei (Shito-ryu Karate) No matter the age, rank, status or experience – this book was written for everyone who see themselves part of the martial arts community. It is my sincere hope that any person who reads this book will benefit from the time he or she had spent doing so. May this work encourage others to continue intelligent writing and research in the field, as I was pushed forth and built upon the knowledge others have shared before me. May you have a pleasant reading experience! =]

Binary Matrixing introduces the Martial Arts as a science. It is the single most important book in the history of the Martial Arts, as it opens the door to all martial arts, and moves the student directly towards the realization that all martial arts are one. The yin yang symbol, most people believe, is a mystical thing that you will someday understand, or if you buy into theories like 'sun and moon, ' or 'male and female, ' or any other number of mystical definitions, then it is simply a mysticism, a 'mystery, ' reserved for somebody smarter. But Binary Matrixing defines the yin yang in a definitive and scientific manner. This definition results in the Martial Arts being considered a science. Once somebody understands the yin yang, which is to say they understand the actual truth of the martial arts, they will be able to see how the martial arts 'grow, ' how they develop from one art into the next. The Martial Arts then become a simple technology requiring as much thought as 'one, two, three....' Finally, understanding the truth of the martial arts, and how they actually develop, one will be enlightened. Enlightenment is often thought of as a 'lightening stroke, ' a realization that changes the way one views life. And it can be that way. More important, however, are the thousand and one 'little things' that make sense out of life, that make life into a single, absorbable subject. As stated, this book is the most important book in the history of the martial arts. It will elevate the reader to an entirely different viewpoint. It is not, however, for everyone. If you believe the martial arts are mystical, if you think that people can't understand a body of knowledge without suffering for twenty years, if you believe that people must learn a foreign language to learn the martial arts, or any other long, laborious and intricate theory, then this book is not for you. This book was written in the belief that the truth is simple, and that studying the truth of the martial arts will make the arts easy to understand, easy to remember, and intuitive to do.
