Celebrate Another Incredible Year With Us!!!

This summer marks 11 years of sharing our passion for martial arts and changing lives within our community! We invite everyone to come celebrate the occasion with us at our Annual Anniversary BBQ!!!

What started out as a small gym on a hidden back street in Garden City, has now grown to the largest facility of its kind in the state of Idaho. What once served as training facility for aspiring fighters is now also a community hub where people of all walks of life come to improve their health, find inner peace, and develop lasting friendships. We are incredibly grateful for everyone that chooses to make SBG Idaho part of their lives, and we want to celebrate the occasion with all of you!

We will meet at Fairview Park at 4pm on Saturday, July 28. We invite everyone to bring a dish or an item for the grill. We look forward to seeing everyone their for an afternoon of food, fun, and good times with our Tribe!!!

Timmons Picks Up TKO Victory!!!

Saturday, June 9, SBG Idaho athlete, Riley Timmons, picked up the first stoppage victory of her young career! At the FCFF’s Rumble at the Roseland 98, Timmons (2-1) took on Paige Andreasen (1-1) in a women’s lightweight bout. The fight began with both women meeting at the center of the cage where they began immediately exchanging punches. Andreasen attempted to clinch and Timmons fired punches over the top before breaking away. Timmons began using more footwork, moving in and out of range, while mixing in shots to the body. Andreasen maintained a high guard and marched forward in search of the clinch. Each time Andreasen was able to secure the position she began throwing knees to the body. Timmons responded with hard punches over the top and knees of her own. The action continued this way until the round ended.
 

Round 2 continued in a similar fashion, but this time Timmons was the one initiating the clinch. From here she immediately tripped Andreasen to the ground near the base of the cage. Andreasen secured half guard, but Timmons maintained good top pressure before transitioning to mount. From there it was all academic, as Timmons was able to slide her mount high before flurrying with hard punches and forcing the referee to step in! Congrats Riley on a fantastic performance!!

 

First Annual SBG Idaho Gorilla Cup to be held July 7th!!!

Throughout the SBG organization, Gorilla Cup events have been a time where the bonds of the Tribe are strengthened through the friendly competition of an in-house BJJ tournament! Recent events at sister gyms in SBG Athens and SBG Montana drew over 60 and 150 competitors, respectively, and we are excited to start this annual tradition here in Boise! This year’s Gorilla Cup will be held at SBG Idaho, July 7th at 10am. There will be divisions for kids of all levels, as well as adult white and blue belts. This will be a great opportunity for everyone, from our seasoned competitors all the way to new students looking to try out competition for the first time in a low-stress, friendly environment. All funds raised will go to support the Gorilla Booster Club of Idaho, a non-profit designed to help SBG Idaho athletes of all ages and backgrounds enhance their martial arts journey through the experience of competition! Registration is open now at gorillacup.combatfitness.com. If you are interested in volunteering your time, we will need scorekeepers and other assorted jobs to be filled during the day.
