Read the point article at: http://www.nccg.org/234Art-MartialArts.html
I have tried to inform and educate people about the martial arts; what is good, what is bad, how to spot frauds, how to avoid getting ripped off, etc. However, there appears to be one more thing to warn you about—possession by demons. Here is an article that describes how this supposed demonic possession occurs while a person is training in the martial arts. My counterpoint to the article points out the defects in the author’s logic.
According to the author of this article, if you are a martial artist, you are possessed by demons, and, if do not believe you are possessed by demons; it is because the demons that possess you have clouded your judgment.
The article is highly subjective and appears to have been written just to support the author’s predetermined religious point of view. The author only uses things he thinks support his view, and if they do not fully support his view, he changes them until they do. It is similar to pounding a piece of a puzzle into a place in the puzzle until it fits. The piece may seem to fit the space, but if you look closely, you will see that the image on the piece does not align with the surrounding image. If facts do not support his point of view, he either rejects them completely or distorts them in a attempt to discredit their validity.
The author states that Judo is only effective for self-defense when the user is large in size and has many years of Judo training. Apparently, the author has never trained with a small person skilled in Judo. Jigero Kano, the founder of Judo, was a small man who challenged and fought much larger opponents around the world and seldom lost. Judo entire premise is using balance and leverage to defeat larger opponents. Although Judo is not an all-purpose answer to self-defense, once a skilled Judo practitioner is grabbed, then the advantage goes to the Judo practitioner.
