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!

Texarkana Martial Arts Improve Your Child’s Focus

Texarkana Jiu Jitsu’s Kids Martial Arts Program Helps Kids Improve Attention, Focus, and Memory.

Focus and memorization go hand in hand. In a past blog post, I talked about how studying martial arts helps kids focus and behave better in the classroom. Today, I want to tell you how it can improve your child’s memory, too.texarkana brazilian jiu jitsu for kids

Memorization is a key skill for learning.

Memorization requires focus and without the ability to memorize, your child wouldn’t be able to be effective learning any subject in school. It’s what lets them learn how to solve math problems, understand the scientific method, and recall important dates in history.

In many kids, a lack of focus can impede their ability to memorize. Other times, it’s that they just haven’t learned how to commit things to memory.

Studying the martial arts can really help kids improve their ability to learn.

In our martial arts classes, kids develop focus by watching their Jiu Jitsu instructors. They demonstrate a move and kids then replicate it. The repetition builds muscle memory. It also helps with mental as well as physical memory.

In our Jiu Jitsu program, kids earn a new belt by putting in the time learning various techniques and sequences of moves in a fun, motivational environment.

They’ve got to remember to use proper form and execute each move properly. This requires focus. They commit each part of their training to memory.

The memorization skills they learn in our martial arts school are carried over to the classroom.

As they study and progress by earning new belts, they improve their ability to focus and practice memorization not just rote memorization but they are discovering how to learn.

If they’re struggling in school, they may begin to understand that putting their focus and memorization skills to work can help them. They can apply the same skills we teach them to any subject in school. They’ll see an improvement in their performance if they do.

We sometimes think of memory as being something we’re born with… either we have a good memory or we don’t. Studying martial arts teaches your child that focus and memorization is a skill they can master. This is something that will help them throughout their lives.

If  your child could use some help with their ability to focus and pay attention so that they develop a better ability to learn and perform at school then… 

Right now you can sign up for a special 2 week trial membership.

This is ONLY available to people who have not tried a class yet.
You can sign up here!

Your child will learn the importance of focus and memorization in a fun, supportive environment.

Until next time,

Coach Marc Hagebusch

PS: In a future blog post, I’ll tell you about how studying martial arts can help prevent bullying. This is an important topic that often interferes with a child’s performance in school and can have so many other devastating consequences that can often cause lifelong problems for them. You won’t want to miss it!
