Christian Martial Arts: The Passion, The Calling, The Journey
By: John L. Terry III
Executive Director, Christian Martial Arts Council
Written for martial arts instructors, this book is intended to be an inspirational challenge to encourage martial arts instructors who are Christians to openly share their faith through their curriculum.
There are many parallels between the Christian life and the disciplined life of a martial artist, and this book serves to help provide inspiration and guidance on how to use the medium of the martial arts to help fulfill The Great Commission.
This book also serves as a text for martial arts instructors who desire to be “CMAC-Certified” as faith-based instructors.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…
Review by: John Sarkett
Author: Extraordinary Comebacks
Our friend John Terry has brought his new book to our attention: Christian Martial Arts: The Passion, The Calling, The Journey: How To Effectively Incorporate Faith-Based Principles Into Your Martial Arts Practice. Christian and martial arts, you say, isn't that a contradiction in terms? The author shows here that it's not. In today's society, predators seeks out children and women as victims; self-defense is no longer an option, but a must. He de-bunks the myth that karate originates from Eastern mysticism. His chapter on marketing will make you think about how you can get your message out in less self-serving, more effective ways. In a day and time where "Christian" conveys "weak" to many, Terry provides a the antidote - but in a caring, intelligent, spiritual way. One caveat: this book may catalyze a desire to run out and sign up for a Christian martial arts class.
