    Default Congratulations to Jason Farnsworth

    Congratulations are due to Jason Farnsworth who recieved his Fourth degree Black today. It was presented by our instructor Mr. Steve Hatfield iwth the approval of and in the presence of Mr. Lee Wedlake. I've watched Jason since I started training at the studio 10 years ago and he was always good but more importantly he continues to learn and get better all the time.

    You beat me to it!!!!

    I talked to Jason a few hours ago and he told me all about the seminars and all about the testing and then, when I thought he was just about done, he mumbled through something and then tried to move on.

    I said, "Excuse me. Are you saying you got promoted?"

    "um....yeah."

    We discussed it some more and he didn't sound very excited because he wasn't sure he had earned it. I readily agreed with him, of course, and told him that it was probably a pity promotion or it was done for political reasons. His family is mob connected, you see, and Mr. Hatfield and Mr. Wedlake each received a visit from Chuck's uncle (with the bent nose) who let them know that HE thought that Jason was ready to promote.

    Jason also didn't think that anyone would care. I assured him that was indeed the case and that I would post it on the forum to prove it. It seems that I have been proven wrong since, oddly enough, people DO seem to be happy for him. It's inexplicable. Totally strange.

    In all seriousness, I am very happy for him and it's great that Kenpo doesn't discriminate against...ya know...people like him.

    Good going Jason.

He straightens it back to normal, and starts speaking to himself) "Something's amiss here... hmm, let me run through it. Ho, haha, guard, turn, parry, dodge, spin, ha, thrust." (beak bends again) "Got it." (straightens beak, and starts his fighting moves again.) "Ho! Haha! Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin!"

    Thank you all for the thoughts.

    When our beloved Ms. Long called me I was still taking things in. Sorting the thoughts of my few hour old promotion. I try to do my best to promote our art. Always trying to make sure that my knowledge and abilities are where they are supposed to be. This promotion was very much a surpirse. Never would have thought a promotion was in my future. I'm not a rank chaser and those closest to me know that. Again, I was shocked yesterday afternoon. To say the least.

    Again, thank you all for the thoughts.

    So what you're saying is that now that you've thought about it, you wondered what took them so long? lol.
