Try doing it barefoot outside, summer or winter, and full contact without any padding. Then you have something. I did that while attending University. I have had to end up using it only a few times over the years. But, it stopped a fight before one began.
Do not put your self in a position where evil is on purpose. Spiritualism is the devil's ground.
yup...! thats right!
but isn't there a time that God permits bad things to happen?
dont tell me there's none...
Job is the best example...
but i don't say that God left Job.
GOD PERMITTED IT TO HAPPEN...FOR HIS CHARACTER BE VINDICATED!
He loves us very much that is the reason why He commands His angels to guard us in all our ways...
GOD PERMITTED IT TO HAPPEN....... BUT IT IS NEVER HIS WILL!
Sin is everywhere!
"For the Angel of the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them . . . . O taste and see that the LORD is good: Blessed (with the Spirit) is the man that trusteth in Him !"
Psalm 34:7-8 & Galatians 3:14
" He who is imbued with the Spirit of Christ abides in Christ. The blow that is aimed at him falls upon the Saviour, Who surrounds him with His Presence. Whatever comes to him comes from Christ. He has no need to resist evil, for Christ is his defense. Nothing can touch him except by our Lord's permission, and we know that "all things" that are permitted "work together for good to them that love God."
Our heavenly Father has a thousand ways to provide for us of which we know nothing. Those who accept the one principle of making the service of God supreme, will find perplexities vanish and a plain path before their feet. As a little child, trust to the guidance of Him Who will "keep the feet of his saints." 1 Samuel 2:9. As we commit our ways to Him, He will direct our steps . . . !"

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. It is quite clear you have no understanding of what these arts are. The exersises put you in a frame of mind that takes you away from God with you even knowing it. These are more than exersises they are a religion and a false philospphy contrary to the Bible.
they then elected the sword to defend themselves against the Lord's will but God in His mercy did not abandon them
but He gave them counsels how to use that sword in mercy to themselves and to their enemies... until they would learn His way because it was never God's way of doing things.... so we can't use that as an example for Christians... and Jesus did not recruite soldiers... he told Peter in the garden of Gethsemane that he who takes the sword will perish by the sword... it was never God's way to take the sword... and Rom.13:4 was spoken for the powers that be, not for the Christians.
So my dear brother Rene, if you wish to be a follower of Christ, you will have nothing to do with the marshall arts, period.
Just try to picture Him who is our example in all things doing marshall arts for exercise!!! I can't! can you?
