About SBG Atlanta

Straight Blast Gym Atlanta is owned and operated by Coaches Phil Gentry and Jim Sheppard. After providing award-winning martial arts and fitness training to the men, women, and children of northern Atlanta since 2010 at their Straight Blast Gym Buford location, they decided to bring SBG to Atlanta in 2021.

Straight Blast Gym Atlanta offers Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts, Kids Martial Arts, and Fitness Kickboxing classes. One-on-one sessions are also available to those looking for a more personal touch. Working privately with one of our martial arts coaches allows for them to tailor the curriculum to your specific goals and aspirations, and thus help to usher in amazing results in a shorter period of time. We also provide one-on-one personal training sessions with our certified and experienced fitness coaches.

SBG Atlanta is located on the corner of Briarcliff Road and Clifton Road and is easily accessible to the people of Atlanta, Druid Hills, North Druid Hills, Emory, Decatur, Toco Hills, the Virginia Highlands, Morningside, and Midtown.

We welcome people of all ages and skill levels, as Straight Blast Gym offers Foundations classes for new students that have no previous experience in martial arts. Our Fitness Kickboxing classes are also open to men and women of all fitness levels, as our coaches structure the workouts so that they can be performed and completed by both workout enthusiasts and those that are brand new to physical activity.
