The men and women that join Straight Blast Gym's Jiu Jitsu program are looking for REAL training with REAL people that will provide REAL results. This incredible ground-based martial arts discipline from Brazil has grown in the last few decades from niche competition communities to a world-renowned self-defense system and fitness activity embraced by all ages, sizes, and demographics.
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. But, not all schools are made the same. SBG Atlanta gives you access to the highest quality Black Belt Jiu Jitsu instruction available, led by SBG Black Belt Phillipe Gentry. While many of these new schools are being taught by part-time coaches providing part-time results, SBG Buford has been providing quality, award-winning results to our students for over 10 years.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students want MORE from life, both in the way that they feel and the way they project themselves. The popular grappling art is renowned for instilling men and women with incredible confidence after you learn to successfully defend yourself, and even defeat, a large and menacing opponent.
If you're looking for real-world self-defense, an extraordinary workout, a tribe that treats you like family, and a hobby that's challenging and fun, it's time to try Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at SBG Atlanta.

Feel Intimidated? Our 8-Week Foundations Program Let's You Learn the Fundamentals With Other Beginners Like You
Unlike other Jiu Jitsu schools who often thrust students into a full martial arts class (which feels super intimidating), all our new Jiu Jitsu athletes start in our 8-week Foundations program. In Foundations, we teach the fundamentals of Jiu Jitsu in a smaller, more controlled, and non-intimidating environment.
In addition to learning the fundamentals of Jiu Jitsu, you'll get in "Jiu Jitsu shape" at a more comfortable and sustainable pace. Most BJJ practitioners will tell you that getting in shape for Jiu Jitsu can only be done by actually doing Jiu Jitsu.
Because of the way we've structured Foundations, we've had a tremendous success rate of people enjoying their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training and cultivating a controlled and friendly environment. Our #1 priority is for you to feel safe and part of the tribe from your first class.

Have Questions About Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes at Straight Blast Gym?
Do I need any Jiu Jitsu experience to start?
But what if I do want to compete in martial arts? Do you have programs for that?
Do I have to sign a contract?
Do I have to fight or compete to participate in the martial arts programs?
I've been burned in the past by gyms that trapped me into long contracts. Can I just take it one class at a time?
Entering our Foundations program, the longest agreement you’ll even be allowed to start on is 6 months. This is done for your protection and peach of mind. SBG is more than just a gym, we’re a TEAM. Because of this, we ask that new students coming into our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program can give us at least 6 months, but we also realize that this is a new sport and a new environment for you, so we’re not going to ask you to make some ridiculous 2 year commitment before you’ve even stepped on the mats.
Can I get hurt doing Jiu Jitsu?
You want to know the biggest determinant in staying healthy and preventing injuries? That would be YOU. If you come into class with the mindset of training smooth and getting better, and not just winning every minute of every practice, you’ll do just fine.
