"Sword and bird",  Vitold in the Yukon, 2005

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not sent His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but to save the world through Him.
Whoever believes in Him is not condemned…
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life”.
- JOHN 3.16-36


The central theme of the Gospel is God’s love for you as an individual. This love was revealed to us through the coming of Jesus Christ into the world and living among men, His dying on the Cross, and rising from the dead. Trough Christ’s death God offers you forgiveness of your sins, and through His resurrection the promise of everlasting life. Jesus died and rose again for the whole world, but for you to become a Christian is an individual matter. The only way to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is to accept His offer of forgiveness and eternal life.

JOURNEY OF FAITH


“The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step”
- CONFUCIUS

My story is a journey from Martial Arts to Jesus Christ who is, first and foremost – The SAVIOUR!
The Chinese wise man, Lao Tsu, said in his great philosophical poem “Tao Teh Ching” –”The further you go the less you will see”. He was absolutely right; the truth you search for is close to you, “within the reach of your hand”, as the Prophet Jeremiah declares. You can’t imagine, my friend, how close. Stay with me when I share my testimony, please be patient, open your heart – and may the Spirit of Jesus Christ speaks to you.
My name is Vitold, originally I’m from Poland but living in the Yukon, Canada, and I am a professional instructor in Martial Arts. I wish to share with you my testimony of the existence of God, His power, love and Grace.
Before I become a Christian my life was filled with passion for Japanese combat skills, and the samurai’s way of life.
Since I was 13 years old, I strove after both physical and spiritual strength, so I started the classes of self–defense in Judo and Ju-jutsu and much later in Karate. Although I was raised with Catholic principles, I become more and more indifferent towards God. My search led more towards Eastern traditions, philosophies and religions.
At age 17 I began training with Japanese masters in Aikido and Iaido. I was looking for non-aggressive Martial Art, where philosophical orientation would embrace harmony, peace and ecology. Aikido seemed very suitable for me.
