On May 15th, 2008 Sensei met with Founder Jeff Nieland for lunch in Marble Falls, TX and presented him with his Plaque, Thanking him for creating the Jai Yen Yen System.

Afterward he issued his well deserved Pink Belt!

"Cheryl and I had a very nice time visiting with Jeff and his lovely wife Cindy. We look forward to getting together again sometime." - Sensei

On July 26th, 2008 Several of the members met in Rockport, Texas for our JYY Coast Event set up by Ken Dill. We originally planned to go to Corpus Christie, but arriving just after Hurricane Dolly the Jellyfish convinced us there were better beaches elsewhere. Actually Rockport has a very nice clean beach with a long sloping shelf that gave us ample training room.
Here is a list of the event program we followed:

Warm - Ups led by Robert Zang
Line Training led by Ken Dill
Kata led by Michael Zang
Bo Staff Class led by Guy Nuesca
Sparring led by Michael Zang

Afterward we all enjoyed some fabulous seafood at
Charlotte Plummer's Seafood Restaurant
Everyone had such a great time, we are talking abut doing this again next year! Here are a few photos from the event.

Time to train with the Bo!

How about Tension Sparring with the eyes closed!

Ken wasn't the only one to enjoy the balance issues of the water, he was just the only one we caught on camera!
