Kenpo Karate Purple Belt Techniques

I still remember my purple belt years like if it was yesterday. That was the stage when I was competing in as many tournaments as I could, but I was only sparring, I did not like forms or any other thing to do. Just sparring, I earned my Kenpo Flame patch too. Many of the ones who started with me also left, we were about 8 purple belts from my generation. But I was the only one who tested for Blue Belt.
