    Hey all!
    I am new to this forum and look forward to talking with fellow Kenpo students. My name is Jesse and I have only been studying Kenpo for a few moths now, but look forward to years of learning! Anyone want to introduce yourself along with your experience and any advice you may have for a new, 36 year young student?

    I haven't been able to help doing that. I am testing for my yellow belt, not this Thurs. But next. Really looking forward to getting some color around my waist(besides my pasty beer belly)

    Hey John, sounds like you are pegging along. At first, my balance stunk real bad and I had a hard time getting my body do what they were teaching. It has come together pretty good since then. My sinsai says I am ready to start getting a little more indepth with the sparring area. It is a great honor to be learning the system and growing in it. Did you have previous m.a. experience before starting kenpo?
