Fighting sports may seem at odds with Christian tradition, yet modern ministries have embraced them as a means for evangelism and social outreach. While news media often sensationalize fighting sports, churches see them as a way to appeal to male congregants, presenting a peace-loving yet tough model of discipleship. From martial arts programs at suburban churches to urban boxing ministries geared towards at-risk youth, this book examines the substantial history of church sponsored training in combat sports, and presents arguments by Christian ethicists about their compatibility with church teachings and settings. Interviews with boxing and martial arts ministry leaders describe their programs and the relationship between fight sports and faith.

Perhaps few Oriental systems have become as widely accepted in the West as the martial arts. They claim to work by unifying mind, spirit, and body chiefly through meditation and physical discipline. This allegedly helps to regulate the flow of mystical energy throughout the body and to enable one to attain the state of mind-body oneness. They stress the control of mind and body for self-defense, health, physical conditioning, and enlightenment. Even when they are considered as regimens of physical development only, they can be adapted to any religion. How the martial arts work; the fitness claims; major problems and potential dangers are examined in this book.
