My first steps into vagabond bjj, first and foremost was welcoming. Second was the humbleness of not just the coaches, but from the students as well. There is literally no egos in vagabond bjj, everyone is humble and there to learn. The coaches and the students are uplifting you in any way they can. Also, there is a home feeling to vagabond bjj, I am so impressed by the coaches that I took my three kids out of taekwondo and enrolled them in vagabond. Vagabond is the place to go for bjj, stop by and let the camaraderie speak for itself.

A welcoming energy and hospitality second to none. Well balanced top tier training. A throw back to what the martial way, and an old school Jiu-Jitsu academy is meant to be. Honored to call it my new training home and family.

Vagabond has quickly become my home away from home since I signed up on 12/15/17. I love the friendly atmosphere here among the instructors and students that makes you feel at home from day one. The BJJ instruction for kids and adults, whether beginners or experienced grapplers is top notch. The laid back and friendly atmosphere helps students learn quickly so the training is excellent. In my first month here I lost 30lbs...just from learning and having fun with my friends. You really can't beat that. My wife trains here as well and loves it as much as I do.

I can and do recommend Vagabond to everyone I know. No matter what your goals are this is the place to achieve them in the Permian.

Vagabond has been an amazing experience for my son and I. Don’t be confused Jujitsu is challenging and will push you regardless of your athletic ability, age, or cardio shape but we are all forged in fire. The greatest growth comes from challenging your body, mind, and spirit and in the short time at Vagabond I have experienced that. I look forward to the growth and life lessons I know I will learn.

Coaches are awesome, the kids love it and they teach real skills. The kids grow in confidence, discipline, and respect. My son has been going there for about a month and has already had great improvements in his attitude and he’s excited for class days. I highly recommend this great group of folks.

I have been here a few weeks and have been very impressed with everyone. I've trained in several places and with quite a few people. the coaches here are very good and very encouraging. I have yet to meet an ego. Even Prof. Hantz who has taught the 530 a.m. one morning was humble and was very patient and encouraging with me. The higher belts aren't egotistical. Both of my young sons train here now and have been seeing improvement in them since day one. there are at least 4 coaches helping with the children's classes and they spend time with every kid to help and teach each individual kid. I have been very impressed and would definitely recommend this place to any age, sex or skill level. I also love that they have a 530 a.m. class. Often it is the only one I'm able to attend. Love this place so far!

3 Ways To Stay On Your Diet For More Than A Few Days

3 Ways To Stay On Your Diet For More Than a Few Days

There are no two ways about it, especially during the holidays, that being on a diet is near impossible.

I remember reading a Garfield the Cat comic as a kid around the age of ten. Garfield is walking alone in the short, 3-frame, Sunday Comic. He thinks to himself, “I’m on a diet, no BIG DEAL” and comes to the realization that the word ‘Diet’ is just ‘Die’ with a ‘T’!

There cannot be a bigger agreement! Dieting SUCKS!

Have you started a diet only to crash and burn into a delicious Cinnabon coma on day 4?

The number one reason this happens to anyone is that they quit EVERYTHING. Cold Turkey. It just doesn’t work well that way for the majority of people.

If you don’t have the willpower to quit soda, candy, fast food, bread, the air, whatever then check this out. 

3 Ways To Stay On Your Diet For More Than a Few Days

There is no magic wand to losing weight. You have to set yourself up for SUCCESS and be held accountable!

  • Smaller Plates
    Cutting your portion of each meal is the fastest way to cut caloric intake. But, it’s not always that easy. Your regular dinner plate looks so empty. That 4oz of chicken breast or, whatever else you’re torturing yourself with looks WAAAY smaller with all that extra room. Get smaller plates. This will “trick” your eyes into seeing more food than there really is because the plate is crowded again!
  • Cut Out Bad Habits One At a Time
    Instead of throwing everything in your pantry away at one time. Kill those bad habits SLOWLY over time. If you make a smaller list and cross those things off that list until it’s complete, you’ll experience a small sense of accomplishment and your body won’t flip out on you with PizzaHut cravings at 2:30am or a midnight meeting with Ben & Jerry. Those small wins like knocking sodas out for 2 weeks THEN, adding something else on top of that for another two weeks will build confidence in your ability to obtain your goals!
  • Have a Real Accountability Group
    There is something to say about having a group of people really care about your success. If you’re going to a regular 24 hour gym, it may be difficult to get the affirmation, motivation or, support you need for continued success. I’ve often heard it said, “People want to see you do well just not better than them.” and, sadly, this is the case sometimes! Having a small, like-minded group of individuals and knowledgeable coaches to push you through the “I don’t wanna’s” can be invaluable.

Need Some Help Staying Active Or Accountable?

Some of the most helpful communities I’ve ever been a part of have been in training martial arts. The staff at Vagabond BJJ are well equipped with the knowledge and network to both keep you accountable for your actions and get you into fighting shape.
