Originally, martial arts were intended for war and battle. The aim was to kill your opponent as quickly as possible on the battlefield, and should a warrior lose his weapon, he was taught to use his body to kill, incapacitate or maim his opponent.
Martial arts involves techniques which have been taken from many different styles or arts and combined to make a mixed system or a composite (composed of many) style.
Most people have heard of Kung fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, and Aikido (wrestling, sumo, boxing and kickboxing are also martial arts), and there are hundreds of different styles within each of these arts also.
Such arts as Muay Thai (from Thailand), Kali (Philippines), or Silat (Indonesia), still retain their weapon based focus on killing, in the traditional form of their respective arts. Other Japanese and Chinese systems also use weapons as part of ‘passing on the art’, to students, to keep the art alive, but the focus is more on preserving the art, than going into battle swinging a weapon.
Yoga may not strictly be regarded as a martial art, but it forms one of the basic methods used in martial arts — exercises based on Hinduism. The word ‘yoga’ comes from Sanskrit `yo’ (man) and ‘ga’ (god), and the aim is to bring a union between them. The philosophy behind yoga positions is for them to allow the body to release the inner human spirit, and to be freed from the limitations of human flesh and thought. The aim is to achieve union with the universal spirit Brahma (or in Buddhism, with the eternal nothingness).
The meditation used in yoga is used to induce a state in which the mind is blanked out and mental activity is suppressed until one becomes tranquil and blissful.
This is DANGEROUS, and opens a person up and makes the vulnerable to the power of evil spirits. It is also a deception, because the aim of true spirituality is not to be freed from our bodies and thoughts, but to allow the Holy Spirit to empower and cleanse them. Even if people think that all they are doing is yoga exercises, they are opening themselves to this false philosophy and spiritual influence.
Yoga is based on an ancient practice of sun salutations — obeisances to the sun god/Satan — known as Surya Namaskara:
Obeisances to the sun god
Salutation 5: Prostration to Him who moves in the sky, is an attempt of Satan to be ‘like the Most High’ (see The truth about Santa Claus and Symbolism of Superheroes):
“How you have fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to the heavens: I will raise my throne above the stars of Yahweh; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’” Isaiah 14:12-14
Surya, the sun god
“There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides across the heavens to help you, and on the clouds in His Majesty.” Deuteronomy 33:26
The words ‘om’, used in yoga; and ‘hia’, used in martial arts, are actually invocations of real demons (see Sun worship and Pagan gods):
“I am Om, the Word that is God.” (Bhagavad Gita 7:8) So declared the infinite Satchidananda through the lips of the avatar Krishna. Also: “I am Om.” (Bhagavad Gita 9:17) And: “Among words I am the sacred syllable Om.” (Bhagavad Gita 10:25)
A karate instructor is usually called Sensei or master. Sensei means ‘one who has gone before’ or ‘teacher’ in Japanese — ascended master/demon (see Making of a Moon Child).
Qigong (also spelled Ch’i Kung) is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine from China that is similar to yoga. It is the art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement, and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy (qi). Qigong involves mediatition, which opens one up to the influence of evil spirits. In the past, qigong was called nei gong (inner work) or dao yin (guiding energy): this ‘guiding energy’ comes from demonic forces. In martial arts, qigong is the key to strength, stamina, coordination, speed, flexibility, balance, and resistance to injury.
Exoteric-esoteric associations are ubiquitous in the oldest surviving martial arts documents (densho). Some old initiation documents assert divine origins for martial arts by linking them to the bodhisattva of India, to the kings of India and the founding gods of Japan. Other describe how secret martial techniques were first revealed to high priests and shamans by demons and gods (fallen angels) in dreams at famous temples and shrines.
Many old initiation documents contain simplified instructions for esoteric Buddhist rituals such as magical spells written in Sanskrit script that supposedly offer protection from enemies, or diagrams that show how swords and other weapons correspond to mandalas populated by demons, gods and sacred animals. Tantric rituals meant to invoke the protection of the gods were especially popular among medieval fighting men.
The martial techniques themselves consisted primarily of prearranged patterns (kata). Students stood, attacked and parried using choreographed exercises. As with Buddhist tantric ritual performances, the internalisation of these patterns through constant repetition gave coherence to the curriculum’s apparent complexity.
Assertions of divine origins and use of religious terminology imbued the Japanese martial arts with a mystical authority that helped to ensure their survival, even after many of their fighting techniques became anachronistic. Even today, students of these traditions may begin their training by signing written pledges (kishomon) to keep secret the esoteric lore they would learn. Also, students who completed their instruction might receive their martial arts diplomas at pseudo-religious rituals modelled after tantric initiations. For example, the student may perform ascetic practices (shojin) for a set number of days, after which a chapel (dojo) would be decorated, a special altar erected, and Buddhist deities (demons and fallen angels) invited. At the ceremony, the students would present ritual offerings of weapons to the deities and give a specified amount of gold coins to his teacher as a token of gratitude. Thus it was widely proclaimed that success in battle depended religious devotions and ritual performances as on fighting skill.
Then there are arts which were introduced in the 20th century for modern self-defence, such as Judo, and Aikido, or Tae Kwon Do. These modern martial arts take techniques from Jujitsu, Bushido (way of the Samurai warrior), and Korean Tukido, Hapkido or Kuk Sool Won, and refine them into a more usable modern and legal art.
There are many traditional martial arts around the world that still teach the killing elements of the battlefield, and preparing for war, as a soldier does. In India, there is Kalariphayat; in Indonesia, Silat; in China and Japan, Samurai; and there are many not-commonly-known African martial arts also.
Many modern armies around the world are taught these martial arts in their original forms, but add modern training equipment to become more effective in a shorter space of time. In certain countries, police forces also adopt the techniques of martial arts to restrain or control an assailant or criminal.
There are also specially trained assassins like the Ninja, and the Chinese Lin Kuei or Saladin’s Assassins (Hashassins), whose arts were specifically about murdering your target in cold blood. These deadly black arts were also termed martial arts, as assassination became part of war, but these were arts that had no honour attached to them. But these warrior-killers were feared and respected.
What is the origin of these arts?
The early roots date back to Babylon and even before the Great Flood, when the fallen angels took human wives and bore the giants or Nephilim and their offspring. They ruled the earth and dominated the natural humans. Their wickedness grew, and so they taught humans the art of war and the killing points of the human body.
In the post-flood world, this knowledge was passed down by the demons (Nephilim who were stripped of their physical bodies (see Aliens are Demons!)) through the priests that revived and encouraged worship of these fallen angels, their human wives and the Nephilim. They called them ‘gods’ and ‘goddesses’, and in order to keep or gain power and influence joined temples and learned the occult powers of devil/fallen angel worship and Nephilim appeasement, so that these demons (djinn) would not harass them. They were also taught necromancy, divining, clairvoyancy, extrasensory perception, Monarch programming, and all other magical demon influenced arts practised before the flood (see Monarch programming).
The Nephilim/demons were contacted via spiritism (mediums), to consult about battles and fighting. Religions were fused with fighting arts, as the warriors, like those of Sparta, and Indian warriors, were then brainwashed to follow the training of the priests with their religious allegiance to false gods. And their sorcery made the warriors fear them, because they feared the spirits/demons who spoke through the priests. To combat this, some of these warriors learned the black arts to avoid any priest defeating them supernaturally. And so their arts were passed down through the generations.
The martial arts were at first passed on by way of secret groups who tried to protect the knowledge of their practices from others. Note that the term ‘occult’ means ‘hidden’. Demonic spirits desire to be hidden because they belong to the darkness. However, they were later taught to non-initiates on a lesser scale, and have now been glamourised through movies such as Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, Fist of Fury; David Carradine’s Kill Bill Volume 1, Kill Bill Volume 2; Jackie Chan’s Who Am I, Rush Hour; Jean-Claude Van Damme’s No Retreat, No Surrender, Kickboxer; Stephen Seagal’s Under Siege, Hard to Kill, etc.
Although the martial arts have now become widely known and accepted around the world, their spiritual basis has been largely still hidden, and people are initiated into the practices without being told about the occult basis. The development of the martial arts as ‘sports’ or for ‘self-defense’ is part of this hidden nature to try and make them more acceptable to the modern mind.
There are only two kinds of spiritual power — from the Kingdom of Yahweh (holy) and from the kingdom of Satan (evil). There is only one God, Yahweh Almighty, and any spiritual power from any other source that is not attributed to Him is in rebellion against Him, and belongs to Satan.
In martial arts, one is able to attack and opponent without actually touching them, and to levitate; this can only be achieved through spiritual/supernatural forces. Which force do you think enables this?
Children are taught martial arts from an early age, and as we have seen, demonic power is involved in these practices, and we cannot rule out demonic possession, especially since, in ancient times, warriors were tattooed before going to battle. These tattoos were etched on by shamans and high priests, who burned incense and chanted ancient incantations to invoke evil spirits to attach themselves to the tattoos, so as ‘to protect’ the warriors and guarantee their success.
Children are so vulnerable, and have less resistance to evil spirits than adults, because they are purer. The longer a demon takes hold of a person’s soul, the harder it is to cast it out. In the Scriptures, we see a perfect example:
“When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. As soon as all the people saw Yahshua, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet Him.
‘What are you arguing with them about?’ He asked.
A man in the crowd answered, ‘Teacher, I brought You my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.’
‘You unbelieving generation,’ Yahshua replied, ‘how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.’
So they brought him. When the demon saw Yahshua, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.
Yahshua asked the boy’s father, ‘How long has he been like this?’
‘From childhood,’ he answered. ‘It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us.’
”If You can’?’ said Yahshua. ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’
When Yahshua saw that a crowd was running to the scene, He rebuked the impure spirit. ‘You deaf and mute spirit,’ He said, ‘I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.’
The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, ‘He is dead.’ But Yahshua took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
After Yahshua had gone indoors, His disciples asked him privately, ‘Why couldn’t we drive it out?’
He replied, ‘This kind can come out only through prayer and fasting.'” Mark 9:14-29
So, when they encourage children to desire the knowledge of martial arts through films, such as The Karate Kid and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they have a sinister plan — to enslave them spiritually.
The history of martial arts reveals that it is not as innocent as it appears, and, although presented as harmless sport, it is extremely harmful to our spirits.
