"Christianity and Martial Arts Power: Basic Concepts and Methods" provides a Christian-based system for learning and expressing martial arts power. The foundations underlying martial arts training are culturally distinct and often pose a stumbling block for students of different cultural and religious backgrounds. The information presented in this book serves as a basis for Christian martial artists to fully experience the beliefs, intent, and benefits of the martial arts.
The psychological and spiritual demands of martial arts training draw from ethical and religious foundations. Chen deftly illustrates the correlation between Christian tenets and traditional martial arts chi kung concepts. Throughout the book, he uses numerous appropriate and instructional passages from the Holy Bible and connects them to essential martial arts concepts such as chi, or life energy. Methods such as proper form, the role of the transformed mind, and individual will are discussed. He shows how Christians can use prayer, empowerment by the Holy Spirit, and the transformed mind to enhance martial arts training.
This book is ideal for students and martial artists who wish to gain a meaningful understanding of martial arts power from a Christian perspective.
