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!

Post Newb Annihilation “Not quite a newb, not yet the Pro.” So you’ve been doing BJJ for a bit now. I guess you could say things are getting serious. You train three to four times a week and have totally been bitten by the BJJ bug. By now you’ve gotten a few stripes and can […]

Confidence is King in a Field of Weakness Today we have soft kids, entitled generations and soft men. All with the voice of giants (on the internet) but lack the experience of having bad experiences to back them up. If you’re over 30 years old, you can look back on a few moments in your […]

That, with zero doubt, tells you that someone you know is affected […]

Competition. Should you do the damn thing? What is that thing anyway?
