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!

Two Time All American One Legged Wrestler

One-legged Wrestler, Anthony Robles, Wins NCAA Wrestling National Title, matches.

This is an old story from 2011, but one that is well worth re-visiting and telling again.

Achievement Starts With Having The Right Mindset.

Individual Sports have a unique advantage over team sports like football, basketball, soccer, etc.

Even though those sports offer many benefits to kids and adults, individual sports are different because it’s one person against another in competition.

Martial arts and combat sports like wrestling or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu further empower kids and adults in that it’s one on one combat where the individual can test themselves against a resisting opponent in a safe manner.

In fact, we consider wrestling as a martial art that is closely related to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

This story shows that a physical difference that many may see as a disability can be an advantage in the right situation.

As you see below, Anthony doesn’t see himself as having any disability at all. Undoubtedly that’s why he was so successful.

Anthony Robles, a 2x All American Wrestler for Arizona State. He won his final match in the 2011 Division I NCAA Championship by a score of 7-1. This completed a perfect, undefeated 36-0 season for Anthony.

Anthony Robels was born without a right leg, but Anthony clearly did not let that be an excuse.

“I really don’t see missing my leg as a handicap,” Robles told Philadelphia television station WPVI before the tournament.

“You know, my parents raised me strong and they didn’t give me any special treatment. So, I believe I can do anything I set my mind to and wrestling is something I enjoy, I love it and I’m just trying to be best at it.”

Wrestling and Martial Arts Empower Both Kids and Adults.

We believe that martial arts are a vehicle for creating a positive mindset and one that helps push each person to higher levels of achievement not just in Jiu Jitsu, but in life.

When you are challenged and overcome those challenges you begin to believe in yourself and what you can do. You develop grit (mental toughness) and self confidence in addition to so many other physical and mental benefits.
