  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Belt Promotions This September!


    On Monday and Tuesday, September 17th and 18th, Straight Blast Gym Buford will be holding our next round of Iron Man Jiu Jitsu belt promotions.


    We’ve got a new batch of adult and kid jiu jitsu athletes that are ready to receive their next belt.  At Straight Blast Gym, we award these belts via an Iron Man, where the belt recipient will do a live roll (spar) with each of their teammates in route to being awarded their new belt.  It is a fantastic event that allows all of our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athletes to share in the celebration along with the new belt recipient.


    The Iron Man Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Belt Promotion schedule will be the following:

    • Jr Gorillas: Monday, September 17th at 5pm
    • Adults: Monday, September 17th at 7:30pm
    • Spidermonkeys: Tuesday, September 18th at 4:15pm
    • Chimps: Tuesday, September 18th at 5pm



    Family and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend.  In addition to receiving their new belt and promotion certificate, we will take lots of pictures for you to enjoy and have.


    Stay tuned for a list of all athletes who are being promoted to their new Brazilian Jiu Jitsu belt!
