  • Buddy Day at Straight Blast Gym Buford


    All SBG Buford students are invited to bring a friend to class and train with you FOR FREE!

    Buddy Day is an event we do a couple of times per year that offers us a chance to meet and train with a new, excitable group of students. Buddy Day is also a wonderful opportunity for our students to spread their love of SBG by having one of their friends join them for a martial arts/fitness class. Regardless of your friend’s experience with physical activity and/or martial arts, all are welcome to participate in our group classes and see what Straight Blast Gym and our tribe are all about!

    To express our grattitude, Straight Blast Gym Buford is offering a free month of membership for all new students that attend Buddy Day and want to become part of our tribe. In addition to that, we give a free month of membership to the SBG athlete that brought in that new student. 😮

    In addition to having a packed house full of incredible energy and new faces, we’ll also be hosting a petting zoo at SBG Buford! From 10am until 11:30am, Straight Blast Gym will have a local petting zoo set up in our parking lot. Pigs, rabbits, chickens, and more will all be joining us for Buddy Day. All SBG students and their buddies are welcome to get down with our barnyard friends.

    For those Straight Blast Gym students interested in bringing a friend to Buddy Day, here’s what you’ll want to do:

    🔥 Arrive with your buddy about 20 minutes before your class starts. This will allow us time to meet your friend, get them the equipment they’ll need for class, and introduce them to their coach.

    🔥 If you have some extra equipment that you can let your buddy borrow, that would be fantastic. We have loaner equipment that they can use but we always get a big crew on Buddy Day, so if you have gear that they can use for class that would be a big help.

    🔥 Once class starts your buddy will be partnered with you, ensuring that they feel welcome and comfortable in their new surroundings.

    We can’t wait to meet and train with our new friends during Buddy Day, Saturday, September 25th!
