Hamden: On May 14, 2008, students from the Academy of Kempo Martial
Arts in Hamden received their new ranks. There were children, junior adults and
adults from Hamden and New Haven in the belt promotion. Grandmaster Brian Hanson
a 9th Degree Black Belt Instructor and Test Administrator worked with the
students and evaluated their performance. “The testing process at the Academy
is to evaluate the students’ performance to insure that they are receiving the
highest quality of Martial Arts Training,” said Shihan Frank Ciarleglio, a 5th
Degree Black Belt and Instructor at the Hamden Academy. The quality of training
starts with the instructor and what they expect from their students. “This is
the reason I have Grandmaster Hanson come in to evaluate the students. It’s
about insuring that the students are performing at the quality that is required
for advancement from an unbiased point of view. This also allows Grandmaster
Hanson to evaluate the instructors’ teaching skills, which helps him to
effectively train the Instructors,” Ciarleglio said.
All of the programs at the Academy (children, teens and adults) revolve
around self-defense and staying healthy in mind and body. The children’s
program is also a character development program. “The Instructors at the
Academy work as a team member with the families and educators of the children to
help the children grow into strong well-rounded adults.” said Ciarleglio.
The Academy of
Kempo Martial Arts would like to congratulate these students for their
achievements. Adult Ranks (adults and teens): Yellow Belts – Anthony Williams
and Muhammad Ali. Junior Ranks (four years old thru ten years old): Junior
Yellow Belt – Timothy Wieland, Alexander Antoine and Gary M. Avery II. Junior
