Vandry Health and Martial arts Expos are clinics or seminars taught by two researchers, martial artists, and St Jude’s Miracle Oil® Co-inventors, William and Chandra Vandry.  The Expos teach workshops on Women’s martial arts, Jiu-jitsu and Leglocks, and a clinic called Got Pain? discussing nutrition, joints, inflammation, insomnia, migraines, foods, minerals, and many other points on health issues in today’s society ranging from the average person to the professional athlete.  The expo does not give medical advice.  On November 2014, the first Vandry Health and Martial arts Expo on Leglocks and the Got Pain? clinic were held in Dallas/Ft. Worth hosted by Professor Marcos Santos of RCJ Machado Dallas-Ft. Worth academy.  The second Vandry Health and Martial arts Expo was held in Austin, Texas at Vandry BJJ Academy September 18-19, 2015.  What’s in the Expo?  Here are the Expo’s schedule of classes:

The Expo has three clinics offered over two days.  If one day is scheduled or for times sake, the clinics are usually two.  The women’s clinic teaches fundamental drills on striking taught by striking coach Chandra Vandry, and grappling no gi portion taught by Professor William Vandry.  Chandra’s background is 6 years of training in striking classes and William is a 5th degree Black belt in BJJ.  The goal is to introduce women who do not participate on a constant basis in striking or grappling martial arts or for those who do train consistently a technical workout.  It is also designed to form a community of women in different cities.  An hour and of drills, exercise and fitness calories to burn!

2. Leglocks: The Great equalizer!

 Leglocks are often ignored in BJJ, or techniques are outdated.  Basic ankle locks or heelhooks are the standard most are familiar with.  Counters and newer ideas are rare and Jiu-jitsu practitioners should work on their leglock developments.  Known as one of the top BJJ  black belts on leglocks, Professor William Vandry has developed ideas, concepts, theories and new techniques from all positions, along with counter attacks, escapes and counter escapes in the leglock game to add to Jiu-jitsu techniques of passing, sweeping, attacking strategies.  Vandry also authored the book Leglocks: The Great Equalizer! you can purchase at

4. St Jude’s Miracle Oil®


The Vandry’s co-invented the product St Jude’s Miracle Oil®.  Miracle oil is a trade secret proprietary blend of 9 essential oils that has shown impressive results in anecdotal trials.  In 2011, William researched Pain, inflammation, tension and injuries.  A past student had a hip surgery and Vicodin (a combination opioid narcotic analgesic drug consisting of hydrocodone and paracetamol (acetaminophen) used to relieve moderate to severe pain.1) was not productive for pain.  Vandry researched non narcotic references on pain, and found PubMed and NCBI sources on essential oils.  The Vandry’s invented St. Judes Miracle Oil® in 2012. The Vandry’s won an international inventor’s award from the INPEX in Pennsylvania in 2012.
