  • Let’s Choke Out Cancer!


    Last year, Straight Blast Gym raised $32,400 as an organization to help fight cancer!

    Our goal is to have 100% participation from every member at SBG Buford and other SBG gyms worldwide – and beat last year’s number!

    Beginning September 17th through the end of October, we ask that every Jiu-Jitsu student (youth and adults) purchase our special pink belts and wear them in every class to show support for cancer research.

    FUJI is selling us these belts at their cost, and we in turn are selling them for $15 and donating 100% of the profits to cancer research!

    If you already have a belt from last year, no problem – for your $15 donation this year we will be getting special stripes to put on your belt to signify your repeat participation.

    Muay Thai and Fitness Kickboxing athletes can get in the mix by purchasing a pair of pink hand wraps that you rock during the month of October. Wraps will be sold for $15.

    P.S. Not an SBG Jiu-Jitsu student but still want to participate? That’s great! You can still order a belt or just participate with a donation. Remember: 100% of the profits from every purchase and every participating SBG school goes to cancer research! Together we can make a huge impact!
