Personal Information:
Hello:

I am a musican, education and psycology student, teacher, psychiatry researcher, security professional, investigator, photographer, caregiver, wildlife lover, handgun enthusiast, motorcyclist, outdoor aficianado, kayaker, female, political progressive, NRA member, movie buff, partner, traveler, gay, eclectic partisan... and Kenpo student.


Other Information:
I started taking TaeKwonDo in college but never tested as tests were held the same evening times as my orchestra rehearsals and concerts. I revisted TaeKwonDo when I was working in the security field. Though I appreciated the art, competition opportuities and mental & physical fitness aspects of TaeKwonDo it did not hold a practical interest for me. I discovered a small American Kenpo studio near my home that visited it. The Instructor, Al Babinec, a fourth degree black belt, offered me several free lessons to see if I was interested in the style. Not only did the style interest me but the whole phylosophy that techniques could eventually be taliored to my needs and defensive situations. TaeKwonDo was so strick and the tradition unchangeable, Kenpo appeared revolutionary to me. The instuctor continued to teach me at the speed I needed to learn, not acording to a time table. I learned his teacher was Huk Planis a direct student of the founder of American Kenpo.

That is one of my goals to go up North one day and see the colors of the leaves as they have changed. My favorite color is purple, so to see purple leaves would tickle me Pink haha.

Have an awesome Friday!!!
