Vandry BJJ community 2015 year in review


By Professor William Vandry

Wow!  What a year!  2015 is gone, and we have new goals for 2016!  All the new students, and old students who have been such a large part of my community, academies and all those who give their support to their community are worth their weight in gold!  Ok, so lets look at what happened last year:

Our first quarter was a blast with a packed house, and five new BJJ black belts: Josh Traveso, Ian Haynes, Jeff Anderson, Michael Drabek and Jesse Armas.  Also First degree black belt award to Matt Serfoss.


First Vandry BJJ Father and son Black belts Jesse and Jesus Armas!


You can’t be a top level black belt without your better half supporting you!

Our fourth BJJ camp for the Texas School of the Blind and Visually impaired students!  Always my community makes a difference in a blind person’s life when we eliminate blindness on the mat of Jiu-jitsu.  APD Sgt. Drabek was on the way, and CO Sabin and Officer Rodriguez spoke to these students about the reality of self defense.
