Hamden: On August 25, 2010 and August 30, 2010, students from the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts in Hamden received their new ranks. There were children and adults from Hamden and West Hartford in the belt promotion. Being promoted to a new rank at the Academy takes an understanding of the movements learned for each rank and the ability to perform those movements proficiently for each new level. “The students work on an individual level and as teams in their classes which help them gain the understanding required to go up for a new rank. While working by themselves the students work on developing their bodies by strengthening their muscles and working their flexibility. Equally important is the development of their mind, which helps them to do much more than they first believe they can do. This type of training helps a student to develop a positive self-esteem and self-confidence,” said Shihan Frank Ciarleglio, a Fifth Degree Black Instructor and Test Administrator. For the children it is equally important for them to show an improved understanding of how to use respect, self-control and self-discipline. “The way the Martial Arts is taught at the Academy helps to instill these important values in a child so they can become more successful in school, in sports and eventually a responsible adult,” said Ciarleglio. The Academy prides itself on its character development program as well as its Martial Arts program; it is all about having a strong body and a strong mind. This is taught in a fun atmosphere while helping students with their physical fitness and at the same time with self-defense skills that are greatly needed in today’s society.
The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts would like to congratulate these students for their achievements. Adult Ranks (adult and teens): Yellow Belt – Sean Joyce, Blue Belt - Erin Joyce and Blue Belt with a Green Stripe – Michelle Bojarski. Adult Advanced Ranks: Green Belts – Cazimir Bzdyra, Ben Hawkins and Len Hutchins. Junior Ranks (four years old thru ten years old): Junior Purple Belts –Francine Corpus and Kevin Daly.
