    Default Kara-Ho Kempo In 2020

    Hey everyone,

    I'm going to be testing for Advanced White soon, and I really was curious if anyone else here was active and training?

    I found my Sensei through the Kara-Ho directory, but not having an actual "class" is making me want to hear about the experiences of others!

    I'm training in San Antonio, TX but may be moving back to Milwaukee, WI in the next few years. Not sure if I'll be able to find a Sensei there, so an internet community would be especially nice!

    Hope to hear from some of you,
    Ben

    I don't think there are any current members left with Kara-Ho Kempo experience. If you search through old threads from "Dianshue" he posted quite a bit and studied.
    "For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer."

    Advanced white; it is a similar advancement system to TKD. I imagine that comes from Grandmaster's experience in TKD.

    Not sure what makes it a "money grab". There are a whopping 2 extra belt ranks before black when compared with EPAK.

    Well, I made 11th Kyu!

    I know im progressing as well as getting healthier, but the kicks and stances are discouraging me a bit. The kicks have more to do with the health of my left foot; i can't pivot on it with all my weight. I'm trying to fix that, but its a slow process (plantar warts). The stances though, some of them are just impossible for me right now; the Scissor Stance and Dragon Stance jump to mind. Im certainly not giving up, but these problems are taking away from my enjoyment of it a little bit.

    Congratulations! Today 11th kyu, tomorrow 11th Dan... 😁

    More seriously, just enjoy the journey. We all have things that limit us in one way or another. That just makes success that much sweeter when you achieve it.
    Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.
