Our Martial Arts Outreach was started in August 10th of 2001
which is located in Ravencliff, West Virginia at the Upper Laurel Fire Department. We started with approx. ten to fifteen
students and we now have been blessed with 20 students more or less & at camp up to 35 . Sensei Church
has studied Martial Arts & working out for approx. thirty years. Started in nov, 1975 in the military
studing Hand to hand, Judo & jujitsu,& close quarters combat. I also did a little Boxing While I was in
the Army also. I also wrestled in high school. Sensei Church was graded by Sensei Sherwood Brown 5th Dan in Ju Chikara
Do of Beckley W.V. in Aug 01. Church Sensei developed & founded his own style Yoshi Do Jujitsu it
is registered with the U.S.M.A. & A.J.F. He holds the rank of 9th Dan, He combines Shotokan,American Free Style Karate ,Jujitsu,
Judo, Aikido,& wresling together as one art. Church Sensei is ranked 4th Dan also in Judo & 4th Dan Jujitsu
by the USMA. & 1st Dan in American Free Style Karate, Promoted by Sensei Phil Dehart 3rd Dan 9-26-02. Now
Sensei Church was promoted to 3rd Dan in American Free Style Karate 9-05. And a 5th Dan in Ju Chikara Do

studied also with diff weapons in the military. He is a member of United States Martial Arts Association &
the American Federation of Jujitsu.Church Sensei studied under Sensei Acie Toler for 3 1/2 years in pineville WV
in shotokan karate in the early 80`s.Church Sensei participated in several martial arts clinics studing some shorin ryu
Under Master Hamilton, from Penn: Shihan Tracy Cook Beckley W.V. And studied weapons and took part in martial arts
tournaments also, Church Sensei studied under diff: Instructors & very close friends in diff. styles from Judo, Jujitsu,
Karate while he was in the military when he was stationed in Kentucky, Texas and Germany 3rd/61st ADA & 12TH
CAV.. Church Sensei studied at home for years Lifting weights, weapons of all types, waza what ever it took to stay
in shape ,because of the type work he was in. He also got tired of all the clicks, who`s who & who you know, not
based on what you know. That`s why I like the USMA, & the A.F.J. they treat you as a person, equally treated as everybody.
Church Sensei was trained for a warrior, now he`s a warrior for god! Church Sensei has found out martial arts
is a every day life study, It is a way of life, Mind, body, an spirit brought together. Just as our christian life should
be studied everyday an applied to our life. And not Judge others, be your own Judge. Be as one with God. strive to be
an example as Jesus was!! The USMA has a great web site www.mararts.org. The AFJ site is www.amfedjujitsu.com The USMA & The AFJ are both great Organizations. We also support ARM/KFCI Mission Foundation Support Team.All our prayers
goes to help them in what ever they may need.Keep on training. And always know courage is not without fear, But having
fear & being able to do the right thing to help others or save them in time of need! ( Below is Sensei Church &
Daughter Rachael ) Pray requests can be left on the guess book or Minister Church can be emailed, we will put them
on our prayer chain at your request,First name only please God know the rest.
