    Kiyojute Ryu Kempo: Art Designed by God? By jboler - 01-08-2013 11:26 AM


    Excerpt from the "Kiyojute Ryu Kempo Instructor's Manual", written by "Soke" William Durbin:


    "During the winter of 1980 I experienced a Tenshin Sho, divine illumination while at home. Around 10:00pm, as I was sitting in my living room, I felt like I had been transported to a Dojo. There I practiced under the tutelage of an unseen master, following his verbal instructions.

    As I finished I turned to the instructor, only to see pure light but recognizing it as Jesus. Then he said to me, 'Remember, first comes training, then comes practice, and then comes perfection.'"

    As a former student of Durbin, I was aware of his "Tenshin Sho" story, although it was never provided in this detail. Thoughts? Although I don't totally discount the possibility of people having visions from God, this seems to be a stretch.
