Second Blue Stripe Kiss of the Dragon

One of the Kenpo traditions is to earn your stripe or belt promotion through the Kiss of the Dragon.  At the end of the test, each person testing takes a kick without blocking from the instructors administering the test.  The strength of the kick is determined by the age of the person testing and the rank they are testing for.  Young kids and low ranks are not kicked hard.

After the sparring portion of the test Friday November 5, 2010 at Disciple Martial Arts, my two girls received their 2nd blue stripe and Kiss of the Dragon from Mr. Wilson and Mr. Silva.  One of the reasons Mr. Wilson is a great instructor is because he kept the mood light, fun, and interacted with the family that was there.
