MMA – Mixed Martial Arts
WHAT IS MMA?
Mixed Martial Arts is the ultimate in martial arts and self defense training. Combining elements of muay thai, kickboxing, brazilian jiu jitsu, wrestling, and judo, Straight Blast Gym Buford has created one of the premier mixed martial arts programs in the state of Georgia, sporting both amateur and professional mixed martial arts fighters in our gym. mma1Using the SBG training philosophies that have put out top level fighters like Conor McGregor, Artum Lobov, and Gunnar Nelson, Straight Blast Gym incorporates ‘Aliveness’ into our training. Aliveness utilizes movement, timing and energy to replicate real-life scenarios and situations, ensuring maximum preparedness for anyone needing to utilize their skills in competition or a self defense scenario.
The majority of those who do compete in MMA at Straight Blast Gym have no martial arts experience when they walk in the door. We have systems and programs in place to ensure that all interested parties receive the necessary training before stepping into a ring or cage to take a fight.

MARTIAL ARTS GYMS AND SCHOOLS ARE EVERYWHERE, BUT TOP QUALITY INSTRUCTION IS HARD TO FIND!
Thanks in large part to the exploding popularity of the UFC, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA gyms are popping up at a pretty quick rate. The unfortunate part is that a lot of people is that they assume they are all the same. While some gyms will aim to impress with a huge facility and flashy equipment, the really strong schools will have a track record of excellence and prestige.
“I started practicing with the MMA team just to push my own boundaries. I strongly believe that forcing oneself out of comfort zones is the only way to experience true growth. I really like that everyone takes care of each other and you know the people you’re training with are safe”
