Attaining the Orange Belt is the first major milestone for our students. Being the first belt, the students learn tha basics of the Kenpo style. Although we say “basic” one should not underestimate the effectiveness of these moves. Our best Black Belts use these same moves with blinding efficiency and perfecting them is key to attaining the higher ranks.
The following techniques or “combinations” are mandatory* for attaining the Orange Belt:
Japanese Strangle Hold
Along with these techniques, the student is also required to perfect the Kata “Short One.”
* The full set is mandatory for adult students. Younger students are required to learn a partial set according to their instructor.
