Hamden: On March 10, 2010, students from the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts in Hamden earned their new ranks. There were children, junior adults and adults from Hamden, New Haven, and Woodbridge in the belt promotion. Their instructor and test administrator Shihan Frank Ciarleglio, 5th Degree Black Belt viewed the students’ Martial Arts material. “To achieve a new level at the Academy the students demonstrate their abilities and must do this with the proficiency required for their level. The students demonstrate the knowledge which they gain through their classes and have to use it in an applicable situation”, Ciarleglio said.
With each level comes a new challenge, whether it is a mental challenge or a physical challenge. This helps the students at the Academy to become more aware of themselves and others. “The students go through different self-defense scenarios during their training, which helps them to mentally understand the situation and physically be able to defend themselves. Many of these self-defense scenarios require a team effort with their classmates. At the Academy, the students learn how to be leaders and work independently but also learn how to work with others as a team. The Martial Arts is a state of being, both mentally and physically whether alone or with others.” Ciarleglio said. “In today’s world self-defense is a necessity not a luxury: with crime and personal attacks on the rise it is important to train to be aware of your surroundings and be able to protect yourself and your family,” Ciarleglio continued.
The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts would like to congratulate these students for their achievements. Adult Ranks (adults and junior adults): Yellow Belt – Javier Soto Jr., and Orange Belt – Evan Pham. Junior Ranks (four years old thru ten years old): Junior Yellow Belt – Francine Corpus, Second Degree Junior Brown Belt – Theodore Maranets, and Third Degree Junior Brown Belts – Kevin Antoine and Ziael Aponte.
