Over the years Dr. Riedner has produced countless materials for both the martial arts and for Christian ministry. His family would like to collect these materials with the goal of eventually making them available to the public. If you are in possession of any written materials from Dr. Riedner (pamphlets, seminar outlines, etc) we ask that you help us honor Dr. Riedner's legacy by scanning and emailing copies to his son, Matthew Riedner. You may do so here
We encourage you to post any photos of Dr. Riedner to the CBBA Facebook page so others can enjoy that memory.
Finally, the single greatest way to honor Dr. Riedner's legacy is to pursue a relationship with God the Father through his incarnate Son, Jesus Christ. The entire reason for the existence of the CBBA and hence Dr. Riedner's motivation for traveling thousands of miles over his career was to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. Dr. Riedner was called by God to use the martial arts as the vehicle for this message and equip others to do the same. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, we encourage to do so today. You may reach out to any of the CBBAM Board members and they will pray or speak with you.
A Celebration of Life for Dr. Riedner will take place during the 2022 Koinonia Conference for those who were unable to attend his funeral services on September 21, 2021.
