Congratulations to Troy Quevedo our newest JYY Black Belt!
On April 27th, 2011, during our regularly scheduled class Troy Challenged for his Black Belt! His original intention was to Challenge his instructor Sensei Guy Nuesca, but due to work commitments Guy was unable to attend the class that evening. Even after realizing this Troy then turned his Challenge to Shihan Zang.
