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.
