Moreover, from the grand champion Sensei Thomas LaPuppet, I learned traditional weaponry {Kobudo} and became his ‘Fire-Tin House’-student, where he worked as a firefighter, and trained during his breaks.) Later (1979) I thought it ideal to go into professional Boxing but my parents sent me to Oneonta College instead. In college, my primary interest was not in academics, but rather, I searched who was teaching some forms of the martial arts on the collegiate level. It was during this time I had the auspicious opportunity to meet three prestigious Masters; Professor Bujunin, Sensei Robert Coyer and Coach Joseph Foderro.

In 1976, the author and a few young, FOA God’s went to a Catholic Priest, Father Powell, asking for his permission to use his church basement as a place of practice; he consented and the 120 styles began to formulate. By 1979 through Allah’s Supreme Mathematics all things became clear pertaining to the martial arts and the Black Gods were able to unite the styles together into a conglomeration of 120. Also, it was the FOA’s objective to teach their people the true history of the martial arts, its origin and how it first started with the Original People.

Fifteen years’ worth of experience at two schools and in two separate periods of my life. I started coaching wrestling right out of high school and after seven years quit for various reasons. Four years later I returned and have been going strong since. One could argue that my influence comes from a talk I had with my son Adrian when he was eight years old but I found that it was only an eye opener for something bigger.…

    I chose to visit a Christian church because I was raised in an atheist household with no prior knowledge of any religious faiths. My lack of knowledge on religion was what actually inspired me to take this class and after a few lessons I realized that in order to understand other religions, I should have a firm understanding of Christianity. The Christian church where I did my site visit was actually a Non-Denominational church which I believe was perfect for my first experience in religion because it was already very accepting and open-minded. A Non-Denominational church is one that is able to make their own decisions rather than having to defer to a church organization and for the specific church I went to the only directive was that the…

He realized that the church was brainwashing all these people that the way to God is through the church, but Luther was the only one that knew the truth.

No man comes to the Father except through me.” When Luther came to this realization, he knew what he had to do was to stand up and fight against the church. The first of the five solas, in scripture alone, is one that Luther used all…

    People were not individually connected to God, other than what was allowed through the church and monarchy. If citizens disagreed with the monarchy’s view of religion, they risked everything from loss of property to execution. But Voltaire, in his Philosophical Dictionary 1764 (Document 1) and his Treatise on Toleration (Document 6), wrote that religious tolerance is an essential element in any society, and that every human is born with natural rights that cannot be controlled or taken by anyone, including a monarch. According to Voltaire, one of the most important natural rights of every man is the right to worship freely and to choose whatever religion he wishes. This type of thinking offered people a way to separate their own religious views from ones that they had been forced to follow.…
