Horseshoe Boy of six is youngest League Results Karate black belt holder 11 compete at Blanche Lake CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Eyes narrowed in concentration, Mart Hodges studied the square board in {root of him. He ran, let out a yell and split the one-inch thick pine board with one kick. Breaking a one-inch board is one of the requirements for becoming a first dan, or degree, black belt bolder in karate. Also required are the perfect execution of nine forms, or series of movements, and knowledge of karate terminology and philosophy. Six-year-old Mail completed all the requirements without a hitch Saturday and became the youngest black belt holder in the history of the United States and possibly in the world. Matt started when he was 3^4 as the youngest student in one of six Korean karate academies owned by Sok Ho Kang in West Virginia. "1 usually don't take them so young," said Kang, a seventh dan black belt bolder. "But Matt was mature; be listened to what I told him. He has good discipline and technique for his age." The forms Matt performed are series of movements incorporating karate blocks and punches. To the untrained eye, they look like carefully choreographed dance steps. "But each movement has a meaning," Kang explained. "Each form exercises every part of the body and uses different attacks and defenses. Matt knows the reason for every movement in every form. "Matt," he called out to the blond boy sparring in the center of the room with an imaginary partner. "What does this mean?" Kang crossed his arms at the wrists and turned sideways. Matt mimicked the movement and replied, "You do that if someone tries to attack you with a stick." The terminology Matt recited for his test included the Korean words for the nine forms, various karate movements and such things as the training school, student and training suit. But when the examiner came to the Korean term for karate instructor, kwan Chang nim, Matt immediately answered "Master Kang." "We brought Matt to Master Kang like a piece of clay," said Mrs. Mary Haber, Mail's grandmother. "We gave him to Master Kang to mold. He's not even my daughter's child when he's here. He's Master Kang's student." Matt first became interested in karate when his parents, Robert and Pamela Hodges, took him to a tournament at Morris Harvey College. He decided right then he wanted to become a karate expert. Matt's has suffered bruised shins and chipped teeth, but he "doesn't back off. He's never cried," said Mrs. Haber. "Matt's been taught that practice is something he has to do at least three nights a week," she said. "Sometimes he comes four or five nights. His Korean name, Tor-Torie, means he's not afraid of anything, but he knows he's not supposed to practice on other children." Leuliig Tean: Us' Tire Service (4) High Rioter Percentages: 1.

"A valuable learning experience," commented Dan Langren and Dale Finkelson, two newcomers sailing in a rcgalta for the first time, after they were shepherded arour.d the course by first heat winners Joe Richardson and Gerry Brookes. "Hair-raising comedy" was how Joe Richardson described the start of the novice race. "AD the boats were bunched on the line at the start when one of the novices whipped over to port lack right into the crowd. Total confusion!" But it was all in fun and part of learning. Winner for the day was Joe Richardson, scoring 1, 4, and 1 in the three regular races. He outdistanced Duane I-uessen- heide, 5, 4, 2, and Gerry Brookes, 2, 8, 1, who tied for second and third.
