  • Muay Thai Pad Holding Fund Raiser with Coach Jim at Straight Blast Gym Atlanta


    On Sunday, July 17th, SBG Atlanta will be offering up a 2 hour masterclass to help our Muay Thai students begin mastering their pad holding skills.

    A good Muay Thai pad holder is worth his or her weight in gold. There aren’t that many people that can fluidly and effectively hold pads for their students/teammates, as it is a skill that takes years to develop, much less to perfect. On July 17th, SBG Atlanta is offering you a 2-hour session to help you accelerate your pad holding skills at warp speed.

    A lot of Muay Thai students and fighters look at pad holding as “the other part of class when I don’t get to be on offense”. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Watch the video below as Coach Jim explains to you the numerous benefits of being a great pad holder. ⬇️

    Coach Jim, who has been coaching Muay Thai since 2015, will be leading a 2 hour pad holding masterclass at Straight Blast Gym Atlanta. Rather than charge our usual Martial Arts Workshop prices for this, we are going to host this event as a fundraiser and only charge $25 for entry, with every dollar going towards our Gorilla Fund.

    The Gorilla Fund is an account that Straight Blast Gym Atlanta and Straight Blast Gym Buford use to assist our Comp Team students to pay for medical work, licenses, registration dues, etc.

    You can lock in your admission to Coach Jim’s Muay Thai Pad Holding Fundraiser at either SBG Atlanta or SBG Buford. Space is limited so don’t delay if you would like to attend and take your pad game to the next level. 🔥🔥🔥

    See you at our Muay Thai Pad Holding Fundrasier on July 17th!
