American Freestyle Karate conducted belt testing where 31 students were promoted to their next rank, including Hal Reynolds, who passed his black belt test.
Reynolds has been studying with AFK since 2010. Although this is a monumental step, Reynolds is not finished with his martial arts journey. He plans to continue his training, earning additional degrees to his black belt and will instruct others in the martial arts tradition.
AFK offers day and evening classes as well as an after- school program picking up from all Salem schools.
