SBG Idaho is committed to providing the most practical and functional martial arts training in Boise. We feel like this knowledge should be shared, not just with our students, but to the community as a whole! Saturday, December 1, as a service to the public we are offering two hours of real, practical methods of self defense from SBG Black Belt World Champion Leah Taylor, absolutely FREE! Coach Leah is one of the head coaches at SBG Montana in Kalispell, and has dedicated her life to teaching BJJ and self defense to everyone from kids to adults. In addition to this, Leah puts her practice to use at the highest level- recently winning the IBJJF Master’s World Championship at the Black Belt Level in 2017! Come learn real self defense methods that will protect you, and those you love, on December 1, from 2pm-4pm at SBG Idaho. We are located at 528 S Americana Blvd in the heart of downtown Boise. Space will be limited as our last event had nearly 100 women on the mats not only learning useful self-defense skills, but having fun while doing so!

SBG mats across the world will be filled with pink belts that are available for $20, with 100% of the proceeds going to support organizations that promote cancer research and patient/family support. SBG Idaho is excited to once again be a part of this fantastic fundraiser that raised over $32,000 dollars in 2017! This year, our local campaign will be capped off with an All School Open Mat Fundraiser co-hosted with our fundraising partner, Camp Rainbow Gold. Camp Rainbow Gold is an incredible local organization, dedicated to providing emotionally empowering experiences to Idaho’s children diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families. In addition to pink belts, we will also have pink #ChokeOutCancer t-shirts for sale, so you can promote awareness even when you’re not on the mats!

Pink Belts will be strongly encouraged and anyone that has made a donation for a belt, stripe, or t-shirt will automatically receive entry to the open mat.

SBG Idaho athlete, Riley Timmons, picked up the third victory of her young career with a first round TKO over Ramona Esparza, this past Friday, September 28, at King of the Cage: Full Speed. Timmons (3-1 MMA) quickly took the center and backed Esparza up to the cage behind a hard jab, cross. From there Timmons moved immediately to the clinch where she began landing strong knees to Esparza’s body. When Esparza began to defend her midsection, Timmons threw short uppercuts with her free hand before returning to the knees. Timmons briefly threatened a single leg before securing a body lock and bringing Esparza down in the center of the cage. Esparza was able to secure halfguard and Timmons postured up to throw strikes before passing to mount. More hard strikes followed and Esparza was forced to give up her back. Timmons hunted for a choke for a bit before turning Esparza back down to her belly. More hard punches followed and the referee was forced to step in.
Congratulations on a great performance Riley! We look forward to watching you continue to grow as a martial artist and athlete!!!
