Mike Del Campo will be coming to Chattanooga to teach four martial arts seminars for us the first weekend in November. Set the date aside now and don't miss this rare opportunity to meet and train with the teacher who brought me through the Wing Chun System. Four different seminars will be taught spanning the weekend: Praying Mantis Kung Fu, WIng Chun Foundation Theory, Thai Boxing, and WIng Chun Advanced Concepts. See the special events page for more details. Sifu Del Campo is also bringing his lovely wife Gina and we are looking forward to showing both of them the Southern hospitality of Chattanooga!
On July 14th Black Belt Examinations were held and Sharon McDarmont and David Ormaza earned their Black Belts (1st Degree -- Shodan Ranking) and Jacob Haines earned his Jr. 2nd Degree Ranking (Jr. Nidan).
A video of the test is viewable online on the Five Animal Kenpo website and a photos are viewable in the Dojo Site on the special events pages. (Click links above).
Congratulations to all three and special thanks to Zachary Haines (3rd Dan), Corey Buchanan (1st Dan) and Michael Strickland (1st Dan) for your involvement in evaluating and "dummying up" on techniques.
