SBG Atlanta's November 2016 Kid of the Month: Sydney Simms

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text delay=”0″]

In the summer of 2016, Sydney Simms first came to Straight Blast Gym.


Her mom, Mary, wanted to get her involved in martial arts so she took to the internet to find a reputable martial arts program in the area. She discovered that SBG had a program for 3 and 4 year olds and the rest is history. Mary recalls when she first brought her daughter to the gym:

“We’d been wanting to put her in self defense for a while since it is so necessary in today’s world. We brought her in and she loved it. Sydney loves Coach Jolene. She talks about her all the time.”

Sometimes when a kid comes in they are nervous and it takes them a while to acclimate to their new surroundings…but not Sydney. She instantly brought in great energy and enthusiasm to the Mico Monkey’s class. Coach Jolene speaks on Sydney:

“Sydney is incredibly smart. She picks up on the movements and moves quickly, and I love how respectful she is. She always asks to get on and off the mat and brings a great energy to the class.”

Sydney has made some new friends at Straight Blast Gym and enjoys giving one of the owners, Jim, multiple high fives before every class.

Having her in the gym is a bright spot of the day and we’re excited to see what all Sydney can do along the way!
