On the weekend of May 30, Richard Matthews was promoted to 7th in Denmark by the AKWA, it came after a long hard (but enjoyable) days teaching and training.

Richard acknowledges that it is a heavy belt to wear and one that takes a lot of growing into.

Kenpoworks online blog was used as the theoretical requirement of the promotion and the time served between promotions (5years) was also sufficient to qualify under most if not all EPAK guidelines, this and the fact that it is Richards 30th year in Kenpo and 34th year of unbroken training.

Congratulations Richard!
