    I like your schools webpage sir.
    Good looking, but VERY easy to get info and navigate!
    The young lady on the front page is cute, but you can tell she's dead serioius!

    Looks like you have a very active Kenpo community there! You should be proud.


    Very nice....

    We have just added Mr. Hogan's black belt recognitions to the web site. Currently, there are no 'branches' that I am aware of, so I am not sure it is a 'family tree' .... unless you're thinking Charlie Brown Christmas type o' tree.

    www.hudsonkenpo.com or www.hudsonkenpo.com\belttree.htm


    And, Brother John, I want to just mention a bit about that the young lady on the front page. I don't usually get to pay too close attention to the young ones in the studio. But, I did watch her recently go through Long Form 2 at one of our promotion ceremonies. It was an excellent demonstration; every bit as serious as she looks. Off the mat, she is polite, quiet, and reserved; in the form, all business.

    It is a very good school. Mr. Hogan and michaeledward have always welcomed me warmly when I've had the good fortune to visit and they serve up some top-notch Kenpo to boot.

    Mr. Hogan has black belts in two or three other arts, and when he met Mr. Planas he was blown away by his Kenpo. Mr. Planas agreed to take him on as a student, but Mr. Hogan had to start at white, like everyone else, and work his way up one step at a time.

    I hope that folks like Mr. Hogan aren't a dying breed.

    That's awesome!!!
    It's so exciting to watch kids really catch the flame and run with it! When you stop to think about all the benefits it's given US as adults, just imagine what it can do for a person who's still so young!!!
    They're the future, and the future is BRIGHT!

    A tough weekend at Hudson Kenpo ....

    An ice storm knocked out power across the State. But, power or no power, a scheduled black belt test will go on. There were two junior black candidates that tested in a studio with no heat, and no power. I believe that both juniors were kicked.

    Today, Mr. Bernard and Mr. Raccio were tested for Black. Power to the studio had been restored last evening, so there was light and heat for the test today. The test was pretty gruelling. In addition to the two candidates, four other black belts were on the mat; for review. Mr. Hogan does use the white stripe acknowledgement for reviewing candidates.

    Both Mr. Bernard and Mr. Raccio were kicked and received their black belts today. They will be formally recognized at a public promotion ceremony on Saturday afternoon. Shortly thereafter, the web page will be updated.

    Mr. Hogan and Hudson Kenpo recently promoted five students to the rank of first degree black belt.

    Hudson Kenpo administers black belt tests twice annually. Prior to the test, itself, candidates are required to complete a written test, a written thesis, a thesis form, and a series of physical requirements. At the test, students are required to demonstrate competency on 151 American Kenpo techniques, 7 American Kenpo forms, and 10 American Kenpo sets.

    Mr. Sean Harnois
    Mrs. Suzanne Poole
    Mr. David Poole
    Mr. Jason Smith
    Mr. Peter Tessitore

    Also at this time, one candidate was tested for, and was promoted to second degree black belt; requiring all of the above, plus an 20 additional techniques/extensions, Form 5, and two new sets.

    Finally, also recently recognized were four young people, earning the Junior Black belts a week earlier. Adam, Victoria, Casey, and Stephen successfully completed the requirements for Junior Black. At Hudson Kenpo, this rank includes approximately 60 self-defense techniques, and the forms and sets through Short Form 3.

    On September 8th, 2011, Mr. Hogan, and Hudson Kenpo recognized the hard work and achievement of two senior students.

    Mrs. Dee Hogan and Mr. Jim Murphy were each promoted to 4th Degree Black Belt. Mrs. Hogan and Mr. Murphy have come up through the ranks together. They were both promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt in June of 2000. Their hard work and leadership has guided many students through the ranks at Hudson Kenpo. Each continues to study in the Advanced Classes at Hudson Kenpo. And both Mr. Murphy and Mrs. Hogan lead classes for students of all ranks at the school.

    Many of their fellow students gather at the studio to observe the promotion, and to contribute to their well earned recognition.

    Mr. Hogan and Hudson Kenpo recognized a long time student with a 2nd Degree Black Belt today. Mr. Danny Raccio was tested on all material through 2nd black. His hard work and dedication paid off, as he was kicked to 2nd today after a length test. All of the studio's black belts were in attendance and also worked all their material.

    Mr. Raccio has been a student at Hudson Kenpo for 14 years, beginning in the children's program. Mr. Raccio earned a junior black belt, before moving across to the adult classes. He was promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt in 2008. A 2nd Degree Black Belt at Hudson Kenpo is required to know 175 techniques and extension, 12 sets (including the bo and 2 man sets), and forms through Form 5. Mr. Raccio demonstrated all of the required material against his fellow students and practitioners.

    Hudson Kenpo is proud to recognize Mr. Raccio as a 2nd Degree Black Belt.

    With great pleasure, Hudson Kenpo, last evening, recognized the continued dedication, tutelage, and hard work of Mr. Mick Swan, one of our senior instructors. Mr. Swan has earned the rank of Professor in the Art of American Kenpo; a 6th Degree Black Belt.

    Mr. Swan began his Kenpo training at the famed High Street School in Ireland. He was first promoted to Black Belt by his instructor Mr. Eddie Downey, and Mr. Parker, in 1989 at the Sarsfield Kenpo Karate Club in Ballyfermont Dublin. He has consistently continued his training, first in Ireland, and for many years now, here in the United States.

    Mr. Swan coaches our advanced students with dedication and perseverance. Coming from the old school Ireland training, he works students hard physically; with focused basics classes, stretching classes, and the advanced forms of our System.

    We are very fortunate to have Mr. Swan as part of the Hudson Kenpo family. Congratulations.
