Who are we?

We're Kick-Punch-Block, otherwise known as KPB!

Helping to expand the Fighting Game community locally in the heart of NYC, nationally, and eventually worldwide.


Going by "AJ" in various Saiyan forms through his tags and "Parappa" as his pen name (because how can you have a team named Kick-Punch-Block without one), Aaron Galasso is a writer for KPB.

Born & raised in Yonkers, NY, Aaron started punishing tiger shots at Age 3. A lifer to fighting games but 09er to the FGC, Parappa was introduced to KPB during their weekly sessions. Getting friendly with the crew, he started to bring his Project M setup to give the sessions some Smash flavor. As an aspiring author, writing for KPB was a no-brainer. Born into a family of coaches, he takes a cerebral approach as a player and is gradually working towards being more than a face in the crowd.

Parappa is best described as a jack of all trades gamer. He has played most fighters and video game genres on a casual level at least. Only a handful of games like KOF, MMOs, MOBAs, anime fighters escape his résumé, but that’s always subject to change. With an advocate of "If it has decent mechanics behind it, it’s worth a shot!", Parappa also enjoys card and board games like Chess, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Hearthstone. Long term, he’s got huge plans for himself, the team and FGC.
