    Welcome to the board. I think you can box and also be a good Christian; also it sounds as if your coach has a good ministry going on. In saying your minister has never said anything was wrong with it it sounds as if you are unsure if he regards it otherwise? If that was the case I would ask him. BTW, there is a guy here named John of Japan who is involved in a karate mission outreach and I'm sure would support your decision to box.
