Martial Arts Ministry

The Martial Arts Ministry was started when the late Kauai Mayor, Brian Baptiste, approached the pastors of Kauai asking for help because of an ever growing drug problem we faced years ago. Out of that request, Pastor Tom, who is a former Black Belt Karate Instructor formed up the Christian Self Defense Academy to give free lessons to kids in the neighborhood. Sifu Conrad Ramos partnered with him in this effort to promote a drug and alcohol free environment for the kids while teaching Christian principles, having prayer, and solid martial arts training. Breath of Life built an entire Dojo within its facility to train these students and has been very successful ministry.
Currently the Christian Self Defense Academy formal training classes are on hiatus. However, Kent Zarbaugh is holding White Crane Kung Fu classes for youth between the ages of 12 and 15.
