Left: Logo for Catholic martial arts academy
(Toledo, OH) Among the oddities forwarded to me over the past week was a link to the "Western Martial Arts Styles at the Catholic Academy of Sacramental Combat Arts," whose shorthand Web name is CatholicWrestling.com.
The group describes itself as an "organization composed of faithful Catholics" that is "dedicated to teaching physical self-defense and combat methods as Sacramentals of spiritual combat."
Sort of like Catholic tae kwon do, but with Eucharist served instead of Gatorade at break? I do not know for certain, since the group prefers to keep its arts secret from non-adherents, but I sure would hesitate to tangle with a bishop who has been schooled in Sacramental Combat Arts.
