          Hamden: Gabriel Ciarleglio of Hamden recently celebrated his 6th birthday at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts. Gabriel kicked off his party with friends and family, sharing with them some of his favorite Martial Arts movements that he practices on a weekly basis. Gabriel’s “Martial Arts Birthday Party” consisted of an introductory to the Martial Arts, (which can help the children to defend themselves) and they had fun playing different games that reinforced the Martial Arts movements they learned. All of the children won prizes for their efforts with the finale being a piñata.

          “Gabriel was a great host at his party, demonstrating and sharing his movements with his guests. Gabriel was also a great example of an Academy of Kempo Martial Artist, leading by example so his guests could see how to act in the dojo,” said Shihan Frank Ciarleglio, Gabriel’s instructor at the Academy. “Whatever we do at the Academy it is imperative that we always pass along to our students, friends, and family that the Martial Arts is much more than kicking and punching; it is about being your best in whatever you do and avoiding situations by using you self-control, self-discipline and respect. This is all taught in a fun and positive environment which also helps to build self esteem,” said Shihan Ciarleglio.
