Jesus and Martial Arts
I Mean, Krav Maga hadn’t been invented, nor had Karate. He might have had time, in the missing twelve years, to head out for China and learn a little Shaolin, and, truth, India was right over the mountains. But…I don’t know.
Now, maybe he was just a natural mushin no shin. Good chance of that, considering his DNA. But when I see a movie and he picks up the whip and cracks those moneylenders a few stripes, I just have to wonder!
I mean, he takes that bullwhip and snaps those fannies like a PRO!
Of course, that’s the movies, and maybe in real life he didn’t use a bullwhip, but he was strong enough to! I know he was strong because he was a carpenter, and carpenters, back in the day, had to move logs around, strip them, chop and saw them into the right shape, pound them together with a mallet, so I know this lad had some strength. Major strength!
Those movies that depict him as a weakly whimp simply have it wrong.
Heck, do you think some guy with no muscles is going to have a tough enough spirit to do the things he did?
And, to be honest, I often wonder, when I read that thing about turn the other cheek, whether he was setting somebody up for a flip or a throw. I mean, he was a smart dude, it would have been well within his capabilities.
Anyway, it’s a good question, what martial art he studied. Heck, if I knew the answer I would probably go find somebody who taught it. Preferably find somebody with lineage back to the man himself.
Can you see it? I studied Heysoos-Do.
Well, no matter what martial art I study, the principle of the man holds true. Treat others as you would be treated yourself. Good idea. Good principle to put in any martial art.
If you want a martial art that is true to principles and kind to the spirit, head on over to Monster Martial Arts.
