Jonesboro Christian Karate
Jonesboro Christian Karate and Kobudo is taught by Bill Brown. Bill is the NE Regional Executive for Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield. He and his wife Cindy are dedicated members/servants at Central Baptist Church. Bill’s discipleship with Christ is reflected in his teaching methods and how he deals with each class member.
Bill has over 30 years of experience in martial arts training with two of the ‘Great’ teachers of this era, Grand Master Fusei Kise and Hanshi Jerry Partain. Bill(Tasshi)’s Christian faith, martial arts experience and military service as a Green Beret have combined to provide a unique class atmosphere. An atmosphere that teaches martial art skills in the old traditional method, while teaching the importance of servant hood to God, Country, and family.
Tasshi believes that men and women should be competent and confident leaders in our society. People who lead by example with a Christ-like servant’s heart. Tasshi believes that the more proficient a student’s karate skills become, the stronger/more confident the student will become. With this strength and confidence comes a more meek/humble or Christ-like character. This meekness should never be mistaken for weakness.
Training to become proficient in karate and kobudo is a lifelong endeavor, much like our lifelong endeavor to become a true disciple of Christ.
Jonesboro Christian Karate and Kobudo meets every Monday night at Central Baptist Church.
