CONGRATULATIONS! Michael, James, Maren, Makayla, Marshall, and Gunner!

We at the Warriors of the Sword - Christian Martial Arts Ministry are very happy to announce that several of our students participated recently in a Bible Quiz Tournament. They won the NY State Championship and will be heading to Georgia to participate in the National Tournament.

Here is a synopsis of the event.


This past weekend, a handful of our yellow stripe students competed in the NY State Junior Bible Quiz State Tournament. They competed in 11 intense rounds of quizzing on predefined questions about the Bible. In the end, they won a bid to the National Festival in Griffin, Georgia which takes place in June.
