William Vandry is the no. 1 BJJ Black belt in the world on support for his community. Vandry has assocation schools that have mandatory training, teaching and learning instructions and to develop a message for a person to feel comfortable learning Jiu-jitsu. Community events such as support, and working with Children to teach Anti Bullying seminars, overcoming helplessness, and to develop a way of dealing with bulllying in schools among children and teens. Morale is vital to a community, and clinics are important to educate those that feel they have no where to go or are alone. They are not.
Vandry also does not believe handicaps are limitations, simply challenges to overcome. Vandry has worked with and taught clinics over the years at Criss Cole and The Texas School of the Blind to show support, and to also reach out to those who have a handicap, and a way to overcome.
