World-Class Muay Thai Training Made Accessible, Fun, and Safe for Anyone & Everyone

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.

"They make you feel like you belong!"
Awesome gym. The people and the coaches are all amazing and great to train with. I've never been athletic and I've always been out of shape, but I have never felt like I didn't belong in the Muay Thai classes with everyone else.

"We drive over an hour & it's worth every mile!"
My daughter and I have been at this gym for almost a year. We drive over an hour to get there and it's worth every mile. The coaches and staff are amazingly friendly and supportive. If I could drag this gym closer to home we would be there more than three times a week!

Have Questions?

Have Questions About Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes at Straight Blast Gym?

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.
