Couples that Roll Together

Being happily together for nearly 20 years, and happily married for 10 of those years, we would like to think we are doing something right. We've found that having a hobby that we can share and do together accounts for one part of our close bond. We've both made a commitment to jiu-jitsu and the lifestyle, and thus we are on the same page when it comes to training schedules, our fitness, and our healthy eating habits. We've chosen to share this journey of learning self-defense and get healthier together. Training together in jiu-jitsu has helped our relationship in several ways: 1. Training in BJJ teaches you to stay calm and optimistic, and therefore teaches you to conquer life's ....

Is your child shy? How Martial Arts can help.

Martial Arts in Little Elm, Prosper, and Frisco Making friends and participating in school can be very difficult for children who shrink from the spotlight. Children who are socially awkward usually have a very hard time engaging with peers or defending themselves physically, mentally, or emotionally. Painfully shy children often suffer from anxiety and behavioral inhibitions in social situations. As a parent, you may notice that your child is always frozen in fear with his/her eyes on the floor and shoulders down. Watching your son or daughter clam up in social situations can be very frustrating. Fortunately, Martial Arts can coax your child out of his/her shell and help him/her ....

Self-Defense for Kids in Little Elm, Prosper, and Frisco

Martial Arts for kids in Prosper, Little Elm, and Frisco: The ability to protect oneself physically from harm is a basic human right that should be accessible to everyone, including children. Self-defense is an often overlooked skill in today’s society, but it is of utmost importance. In an age when bullying in school is a huge problem, it is important to ensure that our children can defend themselves if the need arises. Self-defense not only allows children to tangibly defend themselves against physical attacks, it also sparks various benefits to them in everyday life. Important values and principles can be learned, such as hard work, dedication, and perseverance, as well as the ....

I want to quit!

I Want to Quit!

Dear Parents: How many times have you heard your child say "Mom & Dad I Want to QUIT?" This can happen whether it's baseball, soccer, football, cheer-leading, dance, and yes even Martial Arts! As parents, we try to get our children involved and exposed to as many activities as possible. One of our clients, Mr. Wagner, has a son, Julian, who is five years old now. Julian started his Martial Arts training at 2 ½ years old, but he also does a variety of other things (football, wrestling, skateboarding, etc. along with preschool five days a week).

How Martial Arts Benefits Children: Frisco, Prosper, Little Elm Martial Arts & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Frisco, Prosper and Little Elm areas.
4 Benefits of Martial Arts for Kids:

1) Draw attention away from technology and allow them to unplug
It is not uncommon to find kids glued to their gadgets. These gadgets include anything from laptops, tablets, mobile phones, television, etc. The options are varied and readily available. The scope of information they get from these devices are endless, and it is very easy for our kids to fall into the trap of becoming addicted to the internet for all the extra-curricular activities they can engage themselves in. Gaming is just one activity that gets our kids totally addicted to their devices. Sadly, ....

7 Things to Look for When Choosing a Martial Arts School

Facility: Is it clean and organized? Does it smell clean? If it doesn’t look professional, the services probably aren’t either.
Google reviews: Make sure to read google reviews of the schools in the area. If you see repetitive negative reviews of the same issues, chances are you’ll face those, too. Also look into the Better Business Bureau.
Instructors and Staff: Instructors and staff should take an interest in why you joined and will work with you to help you achieve those goals. They should be personable, courteous and professional. Not all instructors are honest about their training backgrounds and experience. Make sure you do your research. Most ....

Why it's important to train BJJ with a World Champion

It’s a fact: a very small percentage of people who practice BJJ will reach the black belt level. The average student would take around 10 years to achieve black belt status, and not everyone has the patience or tenacity to devote all his/hertime to BJJ. Now BJJ Black Belt World Champions, they’re on a whole other level. Not only have they spent years and years honing their craft, they’ve also put it to the test in the highest levels of competition. The longer you trainBJJ, the more you realize how technical it is. No matter how many classes you attend, there are still some details that you can’t help but miss because you’re too focused on other aspects of ....

Why your child should train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Every child should be put into some type of developmental activity when they are young, whether it is dance, gymnastics, or martial arts etc. I feel as though Jiu Jitsu would quite possibly be the best sport you could start a child in though. It promotes confidence, discipline, respect, and many other developmental qualities. Children are like sponges. When they are young and as they grow they absorb everything they see and listen to. It is important to surround them in a positive atmosphere so that they grow as an individual in a positive sense. Jiu jitsu allows them to do so. Not only does it teach them a form of self-defense, it also teaches many life lessons as well that a child ....

Benefits of Martial Arts in Frisco for ADHD

Studies show that a complex physical activity, like martial arts, strengthens neural networks in the brain, and enables ADD/ADHD kids to practice self-control. Movement helps them develop coordination while building strength. What Martial Arts Offers to “Complex” Kids
What exactly does martial arts teach, besides punching and kicking? Why would you choose martial arts over baseball or soccer? Unlike most team sports, martial arts are focused around an individual’s personal growth, rather than comparison to others
. This makes martial arts a great outlet for children in general, and particularly helpful for children with challenges. “Team” sports ....

History of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Jiu jitsu, the oldest martial art, can be traced back to India where it was invented by Buddhist monks. These monks developed movements based on balance and leverage, in a manner that would avoid reliance on strength and weapons. Jiu jitsu later found its way through China and to Japan where it gained even more popularity. Adopted by the Samurais, the Japanese Royal Guards, as a superior form of self-defense, the martial art highlighted their own code of conduct known as Bushido, the “way of the warrior”. Centered around core values including loyalty, justice, manners, purity, modesty, honor, self confidence and respect, the Japanese named the smooth techniques ....
