    Rae Holsombeck is January's Fitness Member of the Month


    Rae Holsombeck is celebrating 2 years of doing Fitness Kickboxing at Straight Blast Gym Buford.

    Jade Dickson followed in her dad’s footsteps, choosing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as her martial art of choice. Jade began doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu just a few short months ago, joining our Chimpanzee age group of young athletes (7 and 8 years old). Her mother, Daisy, said this about Jade getting involved in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: “Jade’s dad trained in BJJ and Mixed Martial Arts, so I think that was a big influence on her.
