    and apparently christian god does not think its a good idea to be healthy and be able to protect yourself... cuz you might let demons into your life...

    but really what hes saying is that he does not like anything that people from eastern religions created, let alone other religions...

    In the USA martial arts has never had anything to do with religion. Also don't confuse being spiritual with being religious.

    ^youre right, but each original martial art has its regions philosophy built in, and each region has its own religious culture. Not talking about modern systems, but im also not leaving them out

    kung fu carries a lot of buddhist philosophy. Atleast if taught by a real sifu with any knowledge about what he/she is teaching, and the philosophy part is important for example in kung fu, because every rule or "saying" has as much to do with how to live life as it does apply to the actual martial art.

    example:
    In wing chun kung fu, there is a saying, "fist comes from the heart" and if youve seen wing chun they punch from the center, basically originating the punch from the heart literally, but it moreso means go all out. If youre gonna punch, do it with all your heart, no half assed anything. Go with all your passion. It also ties into life, in life do things with all your heart, theres no point in doing something half assed. Go with all your heart.

    But again, you're applying your template here. Not all religions believe in 'Demons' either.
