    Talking Just Promoted

    I just finished a 3 hour test for 3rd brown about an hour ago. It was great fun, I tested with 4 black belts (some pre testing and 2 for 2nd black) and a 1st brown (pre testing for jr Black). I am bruised and beaten but I performed better than I thought and passed with flying colors. That was the most fun I have had so far in Kenpo and look forward to more knowledge and experiences in this great art.

    A great accomplishment!!! A huge per cent of the people that start karate never make it to Brown. Most of those that do, make it to Black.
    Keep up the good work.
