This course consists of 11 classical forms, which I have reworked in light of matrixing and certain other factors.

The names of forms are:

Pinan One

Pinan Two

Pinan Three

Pinan Four

Pinan Five






The Iron Horse

These forms did not come through the usual classical Japanese systems. Following are some notes I wrote on them.

    Temple Boxing consists of the six original forms which led to my enlightenment, and five more forms which I discovered/developed over the years.

    Really, this is two complete systems of Classical Karate.

    The first system, while having root from the same source as the Heians you see in Japanese Karate, is not the same as the Japanese.

    The forms are taken from an earlier evolution of Karate, they are descended from Ankoh Itosu himself, who is credited with creating the Pinans.

    I have changed the pinans a little bit. I explain how and why I change them on the DVDs, and for the most part the changes are small, merely reworking the forms for more logical combat applications, imparting more logic in the development of motion in the form, and so on.

    After the Pinans I show the five forms that I use for my personal Karate training.

    These are developed from other forms, and their names are:






    Originally, the Kang Duk Won was taught through the Pinans, then Sip Su, No Hai, Bot Sai, Kima Chodan.

    I found that Sip Su and No Hai were not efficient.

    Bot Sai was an interesting step up from the Pinans.

    Kima Chodan I renamed as The Iron Horse.

    I kept the Pinans.

    I replaced Sip Su,No Hai and Bot Sai with Unsu, Wankin, Hangetsu, Chinto and Sochin.

    This allowed me to put a logic in the advanced forms that wasn’t there before. It also allowed me to work on such things as single finger strikes, and to make a jump from striking into takedowns.

     I spend a bit of time working with single finger strikes in these later forms. These do not use pressure points, but rather are inserted into the frame of the attacker in such a way that he is easily and instantly brought down.

    I use my usual method for teaching on these DVDs.

    I show the form, moving slowly. I then redo the form, angling so you can see what I’m doing even when my back is turned, explaining the fine points, inserting the concepts so you can make full sense out of what I am doing.

    I then show applications.

    The three DVDs are about 135 minutes. I would estimate that as much as ninety minutes are spent going over applications.

    This is the Karate that I do every day. This is the Karate that enlightened me. This is The Way. This is a karate that is true to the intent of the founders, but translated into modern situations.


    This is the karate from which I came, and which gave me sufficient and logical art to develop the concepts of Matrixing.

Monster Martial Arts


    This is 135 minutes, over two hours, of pure Karate. What would you pay for a private lesson over two hours long? A lesson which detailed the most pure form of Karate possible? From an instructor with over 40 years experience? A guy with so much experience that the magazines actually ask him to write articles for them? A lesson that you could play over and over, and be assured that you never missed even the finset points? A lesson which included...the entire art!


    It was brought to America, where I learned it in the sixties.

    I refused corruption of the art, stripping influences from it, even when those influences were quite extraordinary (Kwon Bup).

    Eventually, I would use Matrixing to de-corrupt it even further, and return it to its true state.

    I came across some rather amazing historical research concerning Karate, and was compelled to re-matrix it.

    Because of this re-matrixing I added the five forms that you will see on this course.

    This is the karate that I do every day. This is the Karate that enlightened me. This is The Way, and it is designed for the pure of heart.
