Keysi Fighting Method for youth ministry?

“i don’t think as christians we’re meant to be just stomped on”

really?

here’s the headline:
Youth pastors learn Batman’s fighting techniques
Highland Park United Methodist Church hosted a two-hour, hands-on session on the Keysi Fighting Method. The session was designed to help youth pastors learn safety and security issues.

uh. and, one of the dudes talks about the need for youth workers to trained this way because we take students on missions trips to “scary places”?

here’s the link for the video clip

man, i hestitated posting this (because last time i posted a video of a youth worker saying something that bothered me, it caused a storm of ugliness and one very upset protagonist). but, c’mon, it was on the dallas morning news.

so… i’ll just open it up for discussion: what do you think?

oh, let me just throw this wrench in the works a bit — a really old quote:

But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
