    Christian Sanchez’s mom recently told us about some of the amazing changes that her son has undergone since joining our Growing Gorillas martial arts program.

This month, we got such great feedback from from Christian’s mom, Amanda, that we’re going to let her take the floor and tell us about Christian’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey at SBG Buford.

    Philip Thomas is November's Martial Arts Member of the Month

    Phillip Thomas is in the midst of an incredible weight loss journey.
    In the summer of 2018, Phillip saw a bunch of people wearing SBG Buford shirts at the park. What he saw was the Straight Blast Gym Spring Social.

In October of that year, he tried a jiu jitsu class at SBG Buford and officially became a part of the team. Whereas in 2018 he saw the SBG tribe at the park, in 2019 he was apart of the SBG tribe at the park. It was around the time of the last SBG Spring Social that Phillip took his training to another ....

    New Jiu Jitsu and MMA Programs for Teens


    Starting Monday, October 21st, Straight Blast Gym Buford will now feature Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts training for our teenage athletes.
    When it comes to martial arts training, teenagers often get lost in the shuffle. As they enter their teen years, they find themselves in this weird situation where they are too big and athletic to train in a kids martial arts program, but not big or athletic enough to train with the adults. Because of this frustration, many of these teenage kids will stop training in martial arts.
    SBG Buford understands this challenge and is preparing to launch Jiu Jitsu and MMA classes for our teenage athletes!!
    Here’s how it’ll work: ....

    Spencer Rundell is October's Martial Arts Member of the Month

    Spencer Rundell is a regular in our 6am Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes. He is the definition of a hard-working family man who still finds time to stay active and be a part of the team.
    Spencer came to Straight Blast Gym Buford in April of 2018, doing private lessons in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His schedule didn’t make it feasible to come to our beginner-level martial arts classes in the evenings, so he did one-on-one private lessons to learn the basics of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, early in the morning. When he finished his foundations lessons, he began attending classes on the regular. Martial Arts Coach Sean Coleman said this about Spencer. “Spencer is one of those guys ....
