Matt Thornton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Seminar

Matt Thornton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Seminar

SBG President and Founder Matt Thornton will be coming to Straight Blast Gym Buford this September!


Matt is strongly revered in the martial arts community for his creation and promotion of the concept of “aliveness” in training, as well as for being one of the first gyms to feature cross training in boxing and other fighting sports at the beginning of the growth of the sport of Mixed Martial Arts in the early 1990s. He was among the first American-born practitioners to receive a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.



On September 8th and 9th, Matt Thornton will be teaching a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar at Straight Blast Gym Buford!  


Every year, SBG Buford brings President Matt Thornton to town in what is always one of the best, and highly attended, seminars of the year.  Last year saw 40 athletes from multiple gyms pack the mats to learn and practice with Coach Matt. The results were phenomenal, with Coach Matt receiving rave reviews.


Sean Bradley, a Brazilian jiu jitsu white belt:


“I was a little worried that the curriculum was going to be super complex and above my skill level.  That wasn’t the case at all, and I took away a TON of great stuff that I still use in my game.”


Sean Coleman, SBG Coach and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu brown belt:


“Coach Matt always brings the good stuff.  It’s always simple enough that everyone will learn from it, but his posture inside of the different positions is so on-point that I always leave his seminars with a ton of great material.”
