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!

Where to Train Martial Arts in Odessa, Texas.

With so many martial arts to choose from, how do you know which one you should be training.
Then, where do you train those martial arts in Odessa, Texas?

Here are a few ways to pick martial arts in Odessa, Texas.

With the HUGE resurgence of the popularity of martial arts; academies, dojos and, gyms have seen a large uptick in participation. EVERYONE wants to learn to fight in some way, shape or, form.

Whether you have dreams of gold medals or, just want to be able to protect yourself in a hairy situation, there is a gym for you.

The first question should be, “Is this a reputable place to train?”

In the age of information, ignorance is a choice! There is an OCEAN of information about who is who and if the place you’re looking at is legit. I mean, come on, man. There are people that still teach “no touch” knockouts. Make sure you use google reviews and Facebook recommendations to see where the best place to get the FULL value of martial arts in Odessa, Texas.  Where ever it is, there is always more than one choice in town. Take the trial and make sure the Culture of the academy meshes with your personality.

Want a garage-style, mma gym or a traditional martial art like Kung Fu? They’re available.  Want high-level Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or Boxing? It’s here too! Just find the best place to do it! Getting taught by a hack can actually get you hurt if you needed to use the martial art you’re training in!

Am I enjoying this?

If you are not enjoying your martial arts training, there may be a few different reasons. Maybe it’s too traditional and using a sword isn’t really your bag of tea. Or, taking massive head trauma isn’t something that you’re trying to deal with later on in life.

You need to find something that really binds to you. That SPEAKS to you and forces you to grow!

The culture and attitude of the academy you choose are so important for the length of time you’ll spend training martial arts in Odessa, Texas.  You want to spend your time with people that are supportive and willing to help you grow.

Is it worth it?

Are you actually getting a workout? Am I being given the resources to achieve my goals? Are you wasting your hard earned cash?

These are all ways to access the worth of your martial art. If the school is billing that you will, “lose weight”, “make friends” or, whatever and there is no proof of this; IS IT WORTH IT? You should be able to see and feel this the moment you walk through the door! (If you did your research, you see it online.)

Of course, you need to put forth the effort to achieve those things. But, if it isn’t what was promised, find somewhere new! One bad academy doesn’t mean the whole art is whack!

Looking for martial arts in Odessa, Texas?

Look no further than Vagabond Martial Arts. Whether you’re a man looking to learn how to defend himself, a woman that is searching for some confidence or, have a child you’d like to see have some personal growth through martial arts, the academy, the culture and, the proof are here.
