As always, the staff here at SBG Idaho, strives to provide our students with the best possible training methods and coaches we can find. In that effort, we are very excited to announce the addition of decorated boxer, Daniel Marin, to our coaching staff here at the best martial arts school in Idaho!
Coach Marin has trained in the sweet science for 15 years and holds an amateur record of 43-8, with 17 championships to his credit. He spent four years training in Las Vegas with boxing legend, Fernando Vargas, while he worked to make the transition to the professional ranks. An unfortunate accident cut his competitive career short before he was to make his professional debut, but he maintained his love for the sport through coaching. He has spent the last four years training both amateur and professional boxers, and is very excited to bring his expertise to our Tribe!!!
Coach Marin will be teaching a CAP/Foundations level boxing class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-9am. If you are interested in switching your boxing training times from the evening to the morning on Tuesdays and Thursdays, please stop by the front desk!

SBG Idaho Head BJJ Coach, Scott Thometz, and Purple Belt, Stephanie Hernandez, along with other members of the worldwide tribe, traveled to the prestigious IBJJF Pan Am Championships, to test their skills against some of the very best competitors on the planet!
Hernandez lost her opening match in the Light-Feather Purple Belt division via arm bar, to her division’s eventual bronze medalist. Hernandez showed great skill defending sweep and submission attempts from her opponents aggressive guard before eventually succumbing to the submission.
Coach Thometz competed in the stacked Black Belt Middleweight division that included former Pan Am and World Champion, Romulo Barral, Pan Am and World Champion, Otavio Sousa, and many more! Thometz started his tournament with a bang, dominating his opponent in route to a 30-0 win! Thometz won his second match when his opponent suffered an injury and could not continue. In his third round quarterfinal match, Thometz was dealt a loss via points to eventual silver medalist Isaque Bahiense Braz, from Alliance. Overall, a great quarterfinal showing for his first IBJJF competition at black belt!!!
Congrats to all of our competitors! Win or lose you all continue to lead by example when you test your skills in competition! We can’t wait to see everyone’s growth from the experience!!!
