2012 Fourth Quarter VBJJA seminar packed, new Black, Brown and Purple belts

December 1, 2012

On Saturday December 1, Professor William Vandry taught his end of the year quarterly association clinic. Vandry has formed the William Vandry BJJ Association since 2003, and each quarter teaches at his headquarters in Austin, Texas to his students and each of his school representatives and members. The seminars are taught to update students in BJJ, and to develop their game at a faster rate by compressing techniques and strategies over quarterly clinics.

New Vandry belts!

Three new pieces of Jiu-jitsu legacy happened December 1. John Brabb, Zach Calvert and Craig Burt received their Black belts in BJJ.

Vandry stated:
“To receive a Black belt, fundamentals, intermediate and advanced techniques are part of the game. However, when you finally figure three main things, this is a key. First, a student develops his game based on his Jiu-jitsu, not athletic abilities. Those attributes magnify his techniques. Second, his development for his Jiu-jitsu represents his entire community. He or she should always look at their actions and words every day. Third, humility and remember how they formed their game and all the training partners and coaches that they got it from. This is a start. Look at these guys. Look at despite all their wars with each other, they care about each other like a set of brothers and sisters should.”

Brown belts that were awarded were to:

Richard Stephens
John Hancock
Myron Dixon
Jackson Word
Josh Travesio
Wesley Collard
Justin McCready
Brandon Harmatiuk
Tim Volking
Robert Tijerina

Purple belts

CJ Johnson

Jacob Finley

The next quartely clinic will be March 2013
