William Vandry teaches Gi and No Gi clinics at the Pit Austin Academy

 

February 9, 2013

 

VBJJA represenative and Purple belt Jeff Hughes hosted BJJ Black belt Prof. William Vandry.

 

Vandry taught Gi and No gi clinics to close the learning gap on the transition between the two.

 

“Gi and No gi can be very different for many grapplers, but the transition needs to be adjustments on grip, slippery bodies due to sweat while grappling, and the collar.”

 

Techniques in the Gi clinic were a set of drills on escaping the mount. The No gi clinic showed defense to takedowns and also displayed adjustments escaping the mount to correlate the techniques and adjustments in gi and no gi.

 

Master Jeff Hughes, also a Kung Fu and Hawaiian Kempo instructor looked forward to promoting more formal Jiu-jitsu at his academy:

 

“We are promoting the aspect of the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and to learn the formal, technical way. “

 

Vandry commented on Hughes:

 

“Mr. Hughes has trained with me for almost seven years, and has a tremendous amount of knowledge, humility, respect for the Martial arts, and I look forward to visiting his academy in the future.
