A blog about my journey back into martial arts later in life.

The book, a sharp study that de-bunks temporal myths in the martial arts as well as provide a Christian map, is an alternative way of seeing the arts in their most basic, pro-Christ state. MAC, citing a definite creationist perspective, allows the arts to have a Christ-centered eternal theme rather than a temporary earth-bound one, which the philosophies of the Orient promote. Citing that original God-honoring arts began with the family of Noah and were later inundated with Eastern philosophies at the Tower of Babel, MAC traces this line of reasoning to the present day popular martial arts.

There are a number of traditional martial arts native to Ireland. Traditional styles include Dornálaíocht (boxing), Coraíocht (wrestling), Speachóireacht (kicking), and Batadóireacht (stick fighting). Dornálaíocht is the Irish word for boxing, dorn meaning fist. The Irish are well known for their bare-knuckle boxing style. Dornálaíocht's stance is often reflected in Irish caricatures such as that of the Notre Dame Leprechaun.

Question: "Is it right for a Christian to be involved in martial arts?". Answer: One of the early founders of modern martial arts, Gichin Funakoshi, said, The mind and technique become one in true karate. Development of martial arts such as judo, kung fu, hapkido, and aikido were steeped in the spiritual traditions of their native countries. This makes sense, given that many of those martial arts sought to merge spiritual and physical exercises with the goal of strengthening both. Also, systems meant to develop combat skill naturally sought a means to govern when to use violence.

Martial Arts: The Christian Way takes a positive look at martial arts from a Christian perspective and explains how the arts can and are being used for youth ministry and evangelism. This book outlines everything there is to know about Christian martial arts, and is therefore excellent reading for anyone with a general interest in the topic. It dispels the myths and covers the history, forms, and styles of martial arts. It lays out in detail the teachings and benefits of Christian-centered martial arts and provides guidance on how to select a martial arts school. Moreover, it includes a comprehensive set of Bible studies, devotions, and prayers written by Christian martial arts instructors around the United States, as well as an international directory of Christian martial arts schools and associations.

I'm excited about Wendy Williamson's new book. It explains Christian involvement in martial arts in a way that's clear and easy to understand. We've needed a book like this and I'm so thankful we finally do. It's a book Christians and martial artists will enjoy reading and sharing with others. It's a book to use as a reference for taking or teaching classes or answering people's questions about Christianity and the martial arts.
Wendy presents her information in a logical sequence. Chapter One is about Christian martial arts. Chapter Two gives a brief history of martial arts. Chapter Three is about martial arts forms and styles. Chapter Four is about the benefits of Christian martial arts. Chapter Five is about the teaching of Christian martial arts. Chapter Six is how to find a Christian martial arts school. The first appendix includes devotions, Bible studies and prayers for the teaching and ministry of young people. The second appendix includes a directory of Christian martial arts schools and associations around the world.
I highly recommend "Martial Arts - The Christian Way."
Thanks to Wendy Williamson for her hard work in writing and publishing this fine book.

Martial arts is not about youth ministry. It is a centuries old system designed for self-defense, self-discipline, and self-reflection through the studying of techniques, philosophy, and through understanding the consequences of your actions. The fact that there are those who wish to twist martial arts, which is "peace through the study of combat" into some kind of conservative, nonsensical, religious rhetoric and taking away the true meaning of it is a disgrace to everything martial arts has stood for since its beginning. Please, please do not waste your money on this book and instead of relying on Christianity to help your kids..be there for them yourself.
