    Isn’t martial arts tied in with pagan Eastern Religions? A Baptist Bible College offers this???

      Actually, we read a lot about people throughout the Bible fighting and engaging in war. That is what martial arts is- training yourself for defense and fighting techniques. Of course one could add other religious things to it if they wanted, as some have in the East. But we should not completely discard skills that God allows us to gain mastery in because some have done it with the wrong motive.

      Do you have any sources to back up the idea that practicing self-defense techniques is pagan? Are you saying that you would not ever defend yourself with your arms and legs, or that it is simply wrong to be trained in such a thing?

      As a note, martial arts includes boxing, fencing and archery. I assume these are on your no-go list as well?
