  • Buddy Day at Straight Blast Gym Atlanta


    SBG Atlanta students, you are welcome to bring a friend to take a class with you FREE OF CHARGE 😮

    What is Buddy Day?

    On Buddy Day, our students can bring one of their friends to join us at our Atlanta location and train with them in a Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Kids Jiu Jitsu, or Fitness Kickboxing class. Students will partner with their Buddy and help lead them through the class. Buddy Day is an amazing opportunity for you, and us, to share the benefits of our martial arts and fitness training with one of your friends.

    Nice! So how do I get my Buddy set up?

    Simply put, just show up. Have your buddy arrive a good 15 minutes before the class they plan to attend kicks off so that we can have them sign a waiver and get them set up with any equipment that they might need for their training session. Make sure they wear something comfortable for their training session.

    If I’m in the Intermediate classes, do I need to bring my Buddy to a Foundations class?

    If you are eligible to train in our Intermediate Muay Thai and/or Jiu Jitsu classes then you can bring your friend to that class as your training partner for the day. That day’s curriculum will be something that students of all experience levels (including no experience) can handle. We realize that the majority of our guests will have little to no martial arts training so we’ll make sure that the material being taught is suitable for everyone.

    Does my Buddy need to bring anything to class?

    For our kids and adult Jiu Jitsu classes, Buddies will not be required to wear a gi. If you, the student, have an extra gi that you want to let them wear for the day, fantastic. If not, it’s not a problem. Our Muay Thai and Fitness Kickboxing guests will need boxing gloves for class. We have a few pairs that we’ll loan out, but if you have an extra pair of gloves that you can let your friend borrow for the day, please do so.

    What if my Buddy loves SBG and wants to join the tribe?

    If your Buddy wants to continue training at Straight Blast Gym after their experience on Buddy Day we’ll make them a pretty sweet offer….

    If your Buddy decides to join the SBG tribe we’ll give them their first month of training FREE OF CHARGE and we’ll throw in a free month of training for you

    In addition to an incredible morning of martial arts and fitness training, we’ll have a petting zoo set up outside of the gym for the kids.

    Students, we can’t wait to meet your friends and have your Buddy train with us on the morning of Saturday, June 10th. Please limit your guest list to one Buddy so that we do not overcrowd the mats. All guests under 18 will need to have a parent present in order to participate in one of our martial arts or fitness classes.
