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!

Martial Arts Teaches Your Child How To Overcome Challenges

How To Develop Mental Toughness and Confidence In Kids.

It’s time to talk about another core tenet of martial arts. In many ways, this tenet brings all the other tenets together – and it explains why kids who study martial arts like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu achieve more at home, in school, in other sports, and everywhere else! We call it Indomitable Spirit.Texarkana Jiu Jitsu kids BJJ and MMA self defense classes

What does it mean to have an indomitable spirit?

It means that you don’t let defeats set you back. You don’t just give up when you run into challenges. You might not succeed every time you try something, but a child with indomitable spirit doesn’t internalize defeat. Instead they rise to the occasion, accept defeat gracefully, and use what they learn for the next challenge.

Indomitable spirit is a core tenet of martial arts that prevents kids from being bullied. A child who has it can’t be bullied because a bully can see that their spirit is strong.

Let me put it another way. When a person has an indomitable spirit, they can be physically defeated… but they will never be mentally and emotionally defeated. That’s important because defeats are inevitable in life. Everybody sometimes falls short… although your son or daughter is much less likely to be defeated physically as they develop the skills taught in our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class.

What makes the difference between someone with indomitable spirit and someone without it is the what happens next after a defeat. When the mind and emotions remain strong – unbeaten. These kids do not have the mental self talk telling them that they are a loser or that they are too weak or any other negative internal dialogue that dis-empowers them.

Kids training in our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program learn that although they may lose at times, they are not a loser.

They carry this over to everything else they do in life.

This is an extremely valuable skill for your child to develop.

We often talk to kids about the importance of holding their heads high. Shame has no place in our classes.

Kids who study martial arts learn that they will face challenges and they’ll lose sometimes, but that they will keep working and overcome each challenge set before them.

If you want your child to build an indomitable spirit, click here to sign up for trial membership now. You won’t regret it, and neither will your child.

Until next time,
