    To see the dominance of Muay Thai, all you have to do is watch any mixed martial arts organization in the world. Just about all of the top fighters are well versed in Muay Thai. On top of that, Muay Thai practitioners tend to look phenomenal with their lean muscle and low body fat percentage.

    While some Muay Thai gyms are heavily focused on fighting, full contact sparring, and competition, we’ve designed our classes and training environment to be accessible to anyone and everyone.

    Here’s what you can expect at SBG Atlanta: authentic, high-level Muay Thai classes led by coaches with real experience and credentials, teaching you in a fun, safe, and results-focused environment. It’s the perfect mix for the everyday person who wants to learn, train, and grow.

    What Benefits Can You Expect From Muay Thai Training at SBG Atlanta?


    There are few things that fill you with the kind of confidence like knowing that you can handle yourself should a physical confrontation arise.


    Much like Liam Neeson in the movie Taken, you’ll possess a set of skills – using all four limbs – that make you a very, very dangerous person.


    There’s a reason that Muay Thai fighters have incredible physiques. You’ll be doing the same type of training they do and can achieve the same physique – it's truly one of the best ways to reach your fitness goals.


    Years ago, the Georgia State Athletic Commission created an amateur division so that MMA and Muay Thai athletes can compete with one another without having to put in years and years of training.


    SBG coaches will not only teach you Muay Thai, but they'll hold you accountable for your attendance and progression to make sure you get the most from your training.


    It’s almost impossible to not become friends with the men & women you share class with, especially as you’re working to achieve your goals together.


    One of the best ways increase your mental toughness is by learning and participating in a new and challenging endeavor. Each Muay Thai class you take will sharpen your mind as well as your body.


    There is no better stress relief than a dynamic Muay Thai class where you're launching a full on attack of fists, shins, and knees on the heavy bag and with a partner holding pads.

    Have Questions About Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes at SBG?

    Here are some frequently asked questions. If you still have questions about the program, please click the button below to contact one of our coaches.

    Contact us
    • Do I need any experience to start?

      Absolutely not. The vast majority of the new students that enroll at Straight Blast Gym don’t have any prior experience in martial arts For our Muay Thai program, we have Foundations classes set up so that you can learn your new art alongside other new students, while training at a more moderate pace. Our Foundations program gives you the opportunity to learn the fundamental, and most important, aspects of Muay Thai alongside other beginners and in a very controlled environment. We want to set up every new student for success, and this means we will NOT just throw you into a class full of experienced athletes where you’re forced to sink or swim.

    • Do I have to fight or compete to participate in the martial arts programs?

      That would be a big NO. Roughly 5% of our students actively compete in martial arts competitions. You are much more likely to find a 35 year old father of three, who wants to lose 20 pounds and have fun while training, than you are an 18 year old who wants to be the next Ultimate Fighter. At SBG, you will never be expected or pressured to compete in martial arts.

    • But what if I do want to compete in Muay Thai? Do you have programs for that?

      Oh yes. Make no mistake, we are a legit martial arts gym and we produce legit martial artists. SBG Buford has had plenty of athletes (both men and women) compete in Muay Thai/Kickboxing, and you’ll have ample opportunities to do so if that interests you. Not only will we help you prepare for your competition, but we’ll walk you through the entire process of how to register, make weight, etc. The state of Georgia has a vast amateur-fight program set up for those who want to compete but have little to no experience.

    • Do I have to sign a contract?

      Every member of Straight Blast Gym is on an active membership agreement, but the length of your agreement is entirely up to you. We offer membership agreements that range from multiple-years, to month-to-month. As long as you’re excited about training with us and ready to make some awesome changes in your life, we can craft your membership agreement to suit your individual needs.
