    Seems reasonable to me. Will there also be a "supporting members" feature here as well?

    There are many schools that use the advanced belt style. If memory serves me correctly it was part of the original EPAK curriculum.

    I think not having rep points on this site migt keep people more focused on being supportive instead of trying to tear down the people around them.

    That's the idea, we really want to keep the politics to a minimum, but there are those that insist on dragging their agendas from other boards here. We cannot and will not allow it. Everyone basically has a fresh start here, even those we banned from MT. I am still working the bugs out of some of the rules, I am getting some input from those with legal backgrounds before I post a few of them. We want to protect those that are innocent and encourage open Kenpo discussion, regardless of lineage, without the hounding experienced on other boards.
    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.
