Dating back to 16th-century Japan, Bushido Martial Arts is a traditional Japanese Martial Art form, but uniquely based in the Christian faith. It offers a similarly unique perspective and reflection on spirituality, one that helps drive First Presbyterian’s goal toward unifying a community. This is why we invited the Bushido program to be a part of our community and use our rooms to practice this art form.

Whether an adult or a child, every class begins with physical training in martial arts and concludes with spiritual reflection and discussion on how our faith can continue to guide our lives. It gives students a dose of history and instills a strong will to pursue their journey toward the future.

Introduced to FPC by Metropolitan Community Church, the Bushido program is a shared ministry with our sister church.
