Congrats to Erin from our youth class for breaking the May 2012 record in "Jump and Duck" with a total of 12! That is twelve times of rapid evasion of the foam sword swiping randomly from head to toe. The previous record of eleven set by Clint had been tied recently by Ana and Andrea but Erin has now raised the bar.
One of our favorite drills (a.k.a. games) in youth kenpo is "jump and duck." I take a foam sword and try to either strike the head or feet of the student. The record for over two years was held by Nathan R. of nine jumps/ducks before finally being struck. Clint today broke that standing record by achieving ten!
