Hamden: On October 4, 2012, the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts in Hamden held a Special Recognition Evening to honor their Academic Achievers. “Throughout the year I collect report cards from our students to monitor their progress in school. This helps us to know how we should gear our character development program to better help the children and it allows us to help our students with their goals. This also allows us to give positive reinforcement to the children who are doing well and who are improving from one marking period to another” said Shihan Frank Ciarleglio.
“At the end of the year the report card will reveal the progress that has been made throughout the whole year. It is with this report card that will I determine whether our students have earned a position as an Academy of Kempo Martial Arts Academics Achiever,” Ciarleglio continued.
The grades are not the only thing that qualifies someone to be an Academy of Kempo Martial Arts Academics Achiever. Shihan Ciarleglio looks at the whole person, the Comment section of their report card, the Work Habits section of their report card, and the Social Skills section of their report card.
The report cards are just part of becoming an Academy of Kempo Martial Arts Academics Achiever. “The students must also be demonstrating the qualities of an Academy of Kempo Martial Artist: Respectful, Self Disciplined, Self Controlled, Helpful, Honest, Generous and Kind to Others” said Ciarleglio. These attributes are monitored on a weekly basis at the Academy and are an intricate part of their character development program.
