April 14, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Wendy S. Williamson, coordinator of study abroad at Western Michigan University, will be featured at a signing for her 2002 book, "Martial Arts: The Christian Way," from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Family Christian Bookstore in Kalamazoo.

Williamson's 160-page work, published by Agapy Publishing, has received good reviews and been selected as a text book by the American College of Martial Science. Her book explains how the martial arts can be intertwined to create a practical and effective form of youth ministry and evangelism. It is the only book marketed today that covers the concept of Christian martial arts in its entirety.

Williamson is a Christian black belt instructor who has a master of arts in counselor education. Involved with the martial arts for nearly 20 years, she has taught Christian-centered karate classes around the world in three different languages.
