MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING
Training should always begin with the body. At Temple Martial Arts Training, we take a balanced, organic approach to martial arts practice.
As "temple warriors-in-training," everything we do is pursued mindfully through deep connection with God Almighty, ourselves, other people, and even nature.
Here we begin to clear out old ways of thinking and pursue habits that honor God and the temple He created us to be.
Jiin Senshi Do draws mainly from Western Boxing, Muay Thai, American Freestyle Wrestling, Tae Kwon Do, Systema, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Gymnastics, Functional Movement Training (Physical Therapy and Quadrupedal Movement), Christian Monasticism, Mindfulness Practice, the Japanese Samurai, the Jedi of Star Wars, the Boy Scouts of America, and the U.S. Military.
Yo-Yo Ma practices the cello. My doctor practices medicine. And, me? Well, I practice everything: How I walk, how I listen to others, how I wash the dishes, and even how I strive always to walk more faithfully in the footsteps of my Master.
Train constantly, recognizing that training is not so much something you do as it is something that flows in and through everything you do.
I'm neither a boxer, nor a wrestler, nor a mixed martial artist, nor a street fighter, nor a shooter. I'm a human being loved by His Creator. That's who I am...nothing more, nothing less.
