We had a good sized group from our martial arts school attend the Paul Mills September International Kenpo camp in Evanston Wyoming this past weekend. There was testing and seminars on Friday and Saturday and there were Kenpoists from many countries that attended, not to mention all those from the States that were there.
We had several students from Arrowhead Martial Arts Studios (AMAS) who tested and I wanted to congratulate the following people on their advancement to their next belt level. It was a lot of pressure for most because this was in front of Mr. Mills and an international testing board of black belts. There was over 20 black belts on the board.
Everyone did a great job. It’s a good experience (once it’s over!) to get out there with people from all over the world and test in front of such a prestigious testing board and get over your nerves. In the street, you have to work under pressure so this is a good step towards overcoming your nervousness.
Congratulations to the following AMAS students:
- Jessica – Blue
- Ryan – Blue
- Cheryl – Purple
- Nate – Purple
- Blake – Orange
- Jessica – Orange
- James – Orange
Please join me in congratulating these students on their next belt rank. You’re all one step closer to black belt!
