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!

Leave the kids crazy energy with us!

I’ve previously written about how martial arts classes can help kids be less destructive. They learn how to control their bodies. Now, I want to talk about a related issue. Texarkana Jiu Jitsu for fit, confident, in shape kids

Any parent of young kids knows that their energy seems boundless. It can be a challenge to keep up! Many parents end the day exhausted from running around after their kids.

This often even happens when your kids are older and in school most of the day. After sitting still in a classroom for hours they get home and unleash that pent-up energy – and you end up feeling overwhelmed by it.

I get it. I’m an experienced martial arts instructor, and I’m still sometimes blown away by the sheer intensity of kids’ energy.

It can be a lot to take – and the only way to deal with it is to give them a productive outlet for it. In other words, you need to provide them with somewhere to place that energy.

I suggest Texarkana Jiu Jitsu.

Here’s the thing I tell parents all the time:

Kids have that energy for a reason. As a parent, the last thing you want to do is encourage your kids to sit around all day. Many parents struggle at times to get them to put down the video games and go outside.

Studying the martial arts is a great way for kids to put their intense energy to use. It teaches them that energy is movement – and that using their energy can help them achieve their goals.

That might sound lofty, but I don’t mean it that way. A kid isn’t thinking about how studying martial arts will help them in college or the workplace, but it does. Harnessing energy is an important life skill.

When you bring your child to Texarkana Jiu Jitsu, they’ll learn to work hard. They’ll push their bodies in a controlled way, learning to use their energy constructively. By the time they leave one of our classes, they’ll have burned off some of that energy, and they’ll be better able to focus on their homework, chores, and family activities.

Does any of this mean that your kids won’t sometimes still be running around the house?

No. They’re still kids. There are going to be times that their energy will overflow. And when it does, you can suggest practicing their martial arts moves!

Until next time,
