The first Dan exam
In 1984, Dr Imre Harnos returns to home again and almost only by chance he finds the Kempo team with new students at a completely new location.
In 1985, the first Dan exam in Hungary took place where Rudolf Várszegi and Ferenc Juhász passed the Sho Dan exam. The two freshly qualified masters also obtained the examination right from the grandmaster, therefore from now on the popularisation and development could take place at a faster rate. Within the All Style Committee of the Hungarian Karate Association founded in 1982, the Kempo branch was also registered in 1985 under the leadership of Rudolf Várszegi. At the time of registration, there were already 4-5 clubs active in Hungary.
In 1988 Ferenc Juhász, with the help of Dr Harnos travels to Australia, where he takes the exam of Ni Dan degree at the grandmaster, then a week later he also takes the Sho Dan exam in Ju Jitsu as well in Canberra in front of the Australian Ju Jitsu Organisation’s Examination Committee. During his stay in Australia he helped to conduct two seminars for Dr Harnos.
Over time, the first Hungarian Kempo masters’ ways parted and we got to know Kempo, represented by Ferenc Juhász Master in the BVSC Karate gym, and we have been representing it ever since. In 2002, we lost our master due to an unfortunate motor accident.
