I have completed my proposal to Real Life Ministries. I hope to soon be teaching once a week at the local church. This church is amazing, it brings in about 3000+ people from all over this area.

I sent an e-mail letting the OUtdoors and Rec guy know I would be willing to teach them Martial Arts.

He sent me an e-mail letting me know he was interested and to com visit him.

I went over there, and he tells me I have to include a bible type discussion. I freaked... I know a lot about martial arts, but I dont know much about the Bible. I know enough, but not ENOUGH to teach it.

He tells me God provides us with all we need to know, etc.

I took a week to think about it. I am going forward with it. I decided to do it. I added some scripture memorization to each belt level, bought a devotional book to discuss and read in class. Im pretty sure this will work out.

I have seen Karate for Christ succeed, why cant I do this? I can, I know I can.

I understand a lot of Easter mysticism scares Christians away from Karate, however, even in Aikido, one can not say where Ki comes from. I have never been told Ki comes from the Wiccan priestess, Buddha, Mother Earth, Zeus, etc etc. So the teachings of Ki do not need to include some Eastern religional belief.

Anyways- that's my day today. See yah Monday after AIkido.
