    Default :) Hey everybody~

    Haha, all I need is another forum to frequent, but after scouring the web for a good Kenpo resource to help when I can't remember techniques, this seemed like a great environment full of friendly people. Couldn't pass it up.

    So.. I guess I'll introduce myself and give out some personal information. My name is Caitlin, I'm 16, and have been doing Kenpo since I was 7 years old. I'm currently a Green Belt, going for my 3rd degree Brown this Saturday, October 21st (hence why I'm finding some good study material!). I train at 'Reding Martial Arts' in Denton, Texas, under Mark Reding and his brother Nick. I mostly do American Kenpo, but sometimes when Jack McVicker is in town, I take his seminar classes in Jeet Kune Do and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

    I might not post much, but if there's any way I can help anyone, I'll definitely try! I'll be recording some of this weekend's test, so I might bombard you all with proud clippings of my better techniques, unless they scar your eyes.

    Drakku/ Caitlin- Welcome to KT! This is the friendliest martial Arts related board I have seen if that makes you feel better

    I congratulate you- not on your upcoming test (will do that afterwardss LOL) but for something much bigger... Sticking with it! That is awesome!

    7 to 16? Wow... I am sure you will have some great items to share on here and we look forward to the videos...

    Welcome again!

    P.S. As a side note, there are some awesome kenpo women on here- Amy, Camey and Erith come to mind...
    The above is just my opinion.

    Hi!

    I'm the Amy mentioned above and James is right; this is the best kenpo forum out there.

    I am very much looking forward to seeing your clips. I've got some more to post pretty soon too. And don't worry about people judging your clips; we're all just happy to see others doing the art.

    Sometimes we even give some decent feedback. Be brave and post them and come here and share your knowledge and ask your questions.

    I have learned more here in the last 8 months than I think I did in class!

    (At the very least, it gave me food for thought.)

    Welcome.

    Hi Caitlin, so glad to have you here. Welcome to KT. Look forward to seeing your posts. I am jealous that I was not introduced to Kenpo until I was 29! I am sure there are some most memorable moments for you, and I hope you enjoy this forum.
