About a year ago, I knew it was time to take my health and fitness seriously. When your gut walks into the room five minutes before you do, it’s time for a change! After being encouraged to consider Texarkana Jiu-Jitsu by a friend, a decided to give it a shot. I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Everyone was welcoming and friendly, the encouragement and camaraderie I’ve experienced from everyone has been fantastic. I’ve dropped 25lbs so far and become much more intentional with my diet. Jiu-Jitsu has changed the way I approach many things. If you’re looking to make a change, Jiu-Jitsu will change you!

Texarkana Jiu Jitsu welcomed me with open arms. The ladies there took me in and have been the best at helping me build confidence. Marc (Coach) has an enormous amount of knowledge and skill. His instructions are precise and easy to follow. The best part is that the group as a whole wants you to learn and get better. You are not a burden as a newbie.

3 months in and it just keeps getting better every class! My 13 year old son and I absolutely love the journey we are on with Texarkana Brazilian JiuJitsu. The atmosphere is phenomenal! No ego’s on the mat only respect and the drive to see each other succeed! You will meet people from all walks of life on the mat and learn something from them each and every time. The first two months were tough due to my lack of physical conditioning but the drills and free rolling have changed that. I feel better physically and mentally. I love the changes I see in my son in his confidence and his desire to train as much as he can. Our journey has only just begun and we are both looking forward to it. If your considering checking Texarkana Brazilian JiuJitsu out we highly recommend it. Swing by and check it out who knows you might join us on our journey.

I walked into Texarkana Jiu Jitsu in February. I didn't know that my life would change that night. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. No big egos. Just really cool people training together. I've lost 50 lbs in four months, and off medication. This gym has literally saved my life. If you want to learn the most effective martial art from a great, knowledgeable coach, Marc Hagebusch is your guy. There isn't another gym around where you'll train under a 3rd degree black belt. Give Texarkana Jiu Jitsu a try. It WILL change your life too!

Is your child stressed out? Martial arts classes can help!

Stress Relief Through Martial Arts.

As adults, we often suffer a lot of stress! kids BJJ martial arts fitness, fun, and stress relief

This past year plus as I write this with the pandemic have definitely added to it!

But modern life is often difficult and not just during a pandemic. We worry about paying the bills, our jobs – and we worry about our kids.

That’s part of our jobs as parents, but we don’t want our kids to be affected by stress. It’s not good for them physically or emotionally.

Still stress is part of life – and some kids are more prone to it than others. In fact, some of us are just naturally anxious. If your child struggles with stress and anxiety, you’ll be happy to know that studying martial arts can help.

Let’s talk about why.

There are a few specific things that happen in a martial arts class that help kids learn how to deal with stress.

Kids learn mindfulness, and that helps them maintain focus and learn to stop worrying about things they can’t control.

Martial arts classes provide kids with an intense workout, and exercise releases feel-good hormones called endorphins that counter the body’s stress response.

Our students also learn how to take potentially negative emotions like anger and anxiety and channel them in a positive way with physical movements and martial arts.

Studying martial arts strengthens the mind/body connection and helps kids improve self-control and decrease their tendency to worry.

One of the biggest benefits of learning to cope with stress early is that it decreases the chances that your child will suffer from stress and anxiety now and later in life. We all need coping mechanisms, and the work kids do in our classes helps kids develop these skills.

Of course, we can’t say that your child will never be stressed if you sign them up to take a class with us. But what we can say is this: they’ll learn the things they can do to manage stress and prevent it from affecting them negatively.

Texarkana Jiu Jitsu offers fun, stress reducing classes that help kids get in shape, develop confidence, and learn how to deal with challenges that will allow them to achieve more in school and life!

Until next time,

Marc Hagebusch
