SBG Idaho Athlete, Stephanie Hernandez, will be making a return to the mixed martial arts cage for the first time since September 11, 2015 when she takes on Dana Hernandez in an amateur strawweight (115 lb) bout!
While Stephanie has had a bit of a layoff from MMA, she remains one of the most active competitors in the gym, competing and medaling in numerous grappling tournaments from the Northwest Submission Challenge to most recently the IBJJF World Championships. Hernandez joins SBG Idaho Athletes Kyle Aslami, Andrew Cruz, and main event participant, Coach Scott Thometz. We look forward to a great performance from all of our athletes June 17 in Fort Hall!!!

 

First SBG Idaho Gear Exchange Set For June 24

GE

Noticing a little more room in your gi due to the hard work you’ve been putting in? Has your child shot up three sizes in two months? Are you looking to add boxing or Muay Thai to your routine, but the cost of equipment is a little bit more than your budget allows? The SBG Idaho Gear Depot (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SBGIdahoGearDepot/) is a great resource to sell old gear you may have outgrown or outlasted, or find deals from other members looking to free up some space. To kick off the group and help raise money for the Gorilla Booster Club of Idaho, we will be hosting a Gear Exchange Saturday, June 24 from 9am-2pm at SBG Idaho!

Let us sell your used gear for the price you determine, and in return we just ask for 10% of the selling price to be donated to the GBC of Idaho! This is a great opportunity for members to sell old gear to help buy that new Fuji SBG Superlite Gi or for other members to get gear for a great deal. In addition to used goods we will be heavily discounting discontinued new merchandise as well! If you have any questions, or would like to know how you can sell your gear talk to a front desk worker at the gym or contact us on Facebook. See you all on the 24th!

Summer Buddy Week Is Here!

BW

With school ending and the temperatures rising, there’s no better time than now to share SBG Idaho with a friend! Summer is a time to unwind from the grind of classes and enjoy some new things we may not have had time for during school. So help that friend of yours make the most of their summer, by showing them what a fun and rewarding experience training at SBG can be! Not only can you win a free MONTH of training for your friend, but also a spin on our awesome prize wheel!!!

Members must attend class with their buddy, meaning CAP level students would be reinforcing their fundamentals in Foundations classes with their buddy. They will need to fill out a waiver sheet to attend class, so plan on arriving a little early to accommodate the paperwork! If you have any further questions be sure to find a coach or staff member at the gym and we look forward to a mat full of new friends next week!!!
