Years ago when I was a purple belt I met a brown belt who knew I just got into college, I was a freshman, I was 18 years old. He asked me if I could get some Kenpo info from the Internet, he gave me a box of floppy disks to save whatever I could find on them, in exchange he offered to help me on my blue belt requirements. That was just the beginning of a new chapter.
