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!

The Secret To Nailing Your New Year’s Goals

The Truth About Goals and Achievement.

There’s an old Steven Seagal movie, “Marked For Death.steven seagal marked for death martial arts

What can I say, I’m a lifelong martial artist so I’ve watched all kinds of martial arts movies.

The movie joined the rest of Seagal’s movies in making Aikido look both cool and effective. In the real world let’s just say for the majority of people it doesn’t really do either.

Shout out to the movie Game Changers which did the same thing by convincing people that vegan diets are healthier and better for athletic performance!

Anyway “Marked For Death” is a movie and that’s what movies do… create a certain false narrative and provide entertainment outside of reality.

In the movie, Seagal’s antagonist is a group of violent Jamaican gang members.

At one point in the movie, the Jamaican gang leader brandishing a sword says to Seagal, “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.

In this case likely referring back to an old Peter Tosh reggae song. I’m not sure who came up with it before him, but he wasn’t the originator. Earlier songwriters and bands used the same phrase including Tommy Dorsey and some older jazz bands.

To the point. The quote taken as a concept means that everybody wants something. They want to accomplish some major goal yet they do not want to do what is absolutely required to accomplish it often because it’s difficult.

Many times, we look for short cuts or some easy way to circumvent what it really takes.

This means you don’t ever get there. You don’t accomplish the goal that could really make a huge difference in your life.

This goal could be finally losing weight and keeping it off, some major fitness goal, some health goal like taking care of what is causing a symptom, improving your finances, or anything else that is meaningful to you.

Too often we just look for some easier way to make things better.
