Bill Landry started his martial arts training in September 2003 at the age of 53 by studying Lotus Self-Defense under Mack Petry at the Lafayette & Abbeville, Louisiana dojo.  Bill, who is often unable to attend regular classes due to working offshore, is currently a purple belt with black stripe.

Bill has written several interesting articles published on this website.  In addition, he has been instrumental in the success and development of this website by taking a proactive approach and helping in many areas, such as financially, editing, contributing pictures and videos, writing articles, etc.

We appreciate all of Bill's help and look forward to the day we will attend his black belt test.
