On March 28th at the Paul Mills Las Vegas International Kenpo Camp, four of my direct students at Arrowhead Martial Arts Studio successfully passed their black belt examination in front of 20+ senior black belts on the AKKI board of examiners. The chief examiner was my instructor 10th degree black belt Mr. Paul Mills (a direct student of Mr. Ed Parker).
Promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt:
- Mr. Jess Leonard (Salt Lake City, UT)
- Ms. Christine Malone (Park City, UT)
- Mr. Kelly Renfrow (Tooele, UT)
- Mr. Rex Stratton (Ogden, UT)
In addition to these four students, I also had two long time students promoted to higher levels of black belt.
Promoted to 3rd Degree Black Belt:
- Mr. Shawn Gough (Bountiful, UT)
- Mr. George Thomsen (Riverton, UT)
Everyone did an outstanding job and made it an extremely proud and humbling day for me. This was one of the best belt tests I have ever witnessed and was happy to have you all out there representing our Kenpo studio.
