Congratulations to Kathy Villegas our newest JYY Black Belt!
On February 8th, 2012, Kathy Villegas was promoted to her 1st Dan Black Belt in Jai Yen Yen! For her promotion ceremony she was required to open, lead, and teach the entire class. She did an excellent job! Enjoy the photos.

Kathy and her family. Congratulations!
On March 28th, 2012 many of our new students were promoted to their 2nd chevron on their White Belt! The promotees were required to demonstrate their techniques using an old school approach of individual testing. This posed an interesting result for both the student as well as the young Black Belt instructors. Which once again provides us with the humility that "We Are All Students"!
The Black Belt Panel!
Congratulations to everyone!
During the next class the last two promotees were tested the same way but with a new instructor.
Reagan Aldersea (Though wearing a green belt from another school she is testing for her 2nd chevron on her white belt in JYY. We respect rank from other schools and never ask the student to wear less than they have earned.)
Congratulations to Robert and Reagan. A job well done Sempai Kathy.
