The Mental Edge

The Mental Edge
Sports Psychology Session with Dr. Andrew Jacobs
Saturday, March 25 1:00-3:00pm

Gautreaux’s Martial Arts is hosting a “Mental Edge” training session with Dr. Andrew Jacobs. Besides his extensive list of accomplishments within the field of sports psychology for the past 36 years, Dr. Jacobs was Mrs. Gautreaux’s sports psychologist leading up to and throughout her training and competition at the 1992 Summer Olympic Games. She personally understands and believes in the value of mental training for all competitive athletes.

The seminar Dr. Jacobs is conducting will specifically address the mental training issues important for young athletes, specifically middle and high school athletes. His seminar will help you navigate the stressful world of youth and high school sports to make you the best athlete possible. Sports can be a great catalyst for success in life but it can also destroy an athlete who does not have the tools to deal with the stress of competition.

Dr. Jacobs has a website, mental training CD’s, a recently published book titled “Just Let’em Play”, as well as a weekly radio talk show on 810 WHB called “The Dr. Andrew Jacobs Sports Psychology Hour”. His website is Take a look at his extensive resume with Professional and Olympic athletes.

The seminar will be held at Gautreaux’s Martial Arts Center, 2905 SW US Hwy 40 in Blue Springs, MO. The time is 1:00-3:00pm. Seminar fee is $50.00, paid directly to Dr. Jacobs. Dr. Jacobs seminars are CLOSED sessions, meaning once the seminar has started, only the participants will be allowed to stay. One coach from a participating team will be allowed to observe. This is a PRE-REGISTRATION EVENT ONLY. Registration deadline is Wednesday, March 15. Participants will need to bring a pen and paper with them. Please contact Coach Robert Smith if you plan to attend. Also, please download and print page 2 of this document to bring with you: Waiver for Gautreaux’s

“You can have two athletes of equal skill and physical ability, but
the one with the stronger mind will be the one who comes out on
top.” – Dr. Andrew Jacobs
