    Marlon Sanchez is December's Fitness Member of the Month

    Marlon Sanchez is only 18 years old, and about to begin working for the Navy. He wanted to take his strength and conditioning to the next level, before he leaves, so he began training in SBG Buford’s fitness classes.
    His sister, Arely, told us all about what inspired Marlon to begin training at Straight Blast Gym: “He actually leaves for boot camp one month from now, so he wanted to start getting in shape for basic training. I have been training here for a while, and I’m always telling him about the workouts. He started by doing personal training with James, and he loved it so much he decided to join the Fitness Performance program.”

    Jade Dickson is December's Kids Martial Arts Member of the Month

    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. Also, more recently, her 3 best friends started training in Jiu Jitsu. Jade saw them compete in a tournament and fell in love with the idea, asking every day to find a school for probably a solid month, before we finally came to SBG.” It’s ....

    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.

    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. Phillip liked the community aspect of SBG Buford, and wanted to learn more. Philip was already a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but wanted a new place to call home. 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: ....
