Chris I would have been much more specific but frankly that's a waste of time because the OP can't or won't take what others say as being anywhere near the truth if it contradicts what he says hence my generalistions. I'm Jewish, everything I do in my everyday is what some might call 'religious' including martial arts, it's about how one acts and behaves all the time. Everyday life for a Jew is hardly the stuff of extremists. When I say no one believes martial arts are a religion I mean that no-one worships martial arts, no one prays to karate or Judo, says prayers of thanks to TKD or prays that JKD send money. Martial arts may be a religious act or an expression of religion but they aren't worshipped or deified in themselves which is how I would define a religion.
So everything you do including martial arts you claim to apply your religion to it somehow. I never said other otherwise. I don't know enough about Judaism to know how you would apply it to martial arts or if you're training in the martial arts for religious reasons along with everything else you do but if that's what you say than I am not going to argue against that.
