From their website: The Gospel of Combat is a 30 minute documentary about an East African martial artist’s journey toward self-understanding through Aikido and Karate. The film follows Benedict “Sensei Ben” Kiyaga, a freelance martial arts instructor, as he ekes a living from a handful of private classes. Along the way, Sensei Ben reflects on the application of martial art as spiritual practice, and shares how it has helped him make sense of his multicultural identity amid pervasive tribal conflict.

The movie is slated to screen in Los Angeles, CA and Sedona, AZ in February, 2019.
