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 Helps Kids Develop Coordination and Athleticism… Even If They Aren’t Naturally Athletic At All!

Kids come in all shapes, sizes, and attributes. Some kids seem to be born with natural grace and athletic ability.texarkana jiu jitsu kids bjj classes

Other kids struggle with physical coordination and athletics. Anything they achieve in terms of physical fitness requires more work than those that are naturally gifted. As a consequence, they often struggle with common team sports like football, baseball, basketball, softball, and volleyball.

In our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes, we take to time to work with the kids and build them up over time. Unlike other team sports, we’re not in a hurry to play a game or have to put in only the most athletic kids to help us win.

At Texarkana Jiu Jitsu, we help each child develop their physical and mental attributes regardless of where they are starting from with natural ability.

We often see kids that aren’t athletic come in, work with our coaches, develop amazing physical and mental skills that they use to develop better skills than those that are more naturally gifted.

Often we may think of a trained martial artist as having amazing physical skills… coordination, speed, and athleticism coupled with mental skills of confidence, discipline, and focus.

This leads some parents to be concerned that their child who isn’t naturally athletic won’t be able to keep up in our classes.

In fact, the opposite is true.

The truth is that those martial artists we think of (and see on our mats) rarely come in to our classes with those physical and mental attributes… They develop them on the mats having fun training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with us.

I see it all the time. Physical skills of athleticism, coordination, speed, and strength are a skill. These can be learned – and I see kids learn it every day. All they need is the right instruction and the right environment with a coach that will take the time to help them reach their potential and not just worry about winning the next game.

Now, that doesn’t mean that every child who studies with us becomes a martial arts master. That wouldn’t be realistic. But it doesn’t mean that the children who attend our classes leave with higher levels of athleticism, strength, speed, and coordination than they were when they started with us.

In fact, often the changes we see are amazing! It doesn’t matter if your child has two left feet or no interest in sports. Martial arts classes provide kids with meaningful, one-on-one instruction that helps them improve their athleticism and fitness. Even the most un-athletic child will see incredible improvements over time.

Until next time,
