    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to let you all know that I had my first test in Kajukenbo (and indeed my first belt test ever, since my last school didn't have them) two weeks ago, and I passed with flying colors. I passed on to yellow belt, and am eagerly mastering all my material to do even better on my next test.

    I've been in Kajukenbo for about six months, and I love the art, especially the heavy emphasis my teacher places on conditioning; I've never been in better shape.
