We are happy to announce our affiliation with Straight Blast Gym International!!! Going forward, Combat Fitness will now be home to SBG Idaho!
Founded in 1992 by Black Belt Matt Thornton, SBGi has over 35 gyms worldwide, including locations in Canada, Ireland, Iceland, South Africa and Sweden as well as many others here in the US…and now in Boise, Idaho!
SBGi is a registered academy with the International Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) and United States Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (USBJJF), though it is not only a BJJ academy but also an MMA school. SBG Ireland, under head coach and Thornton Black Belt, John Kavanagh, recently saw itself go 4-0 at UFC Fight Night in Dublin, Ireland.
There will be many changes made here at Combat Fitness with this new and exciting partnership. Through our access to both the BJJ and other combat curricula offered through SBGi, the quality of training for our members will continue to improve to greater and greater heights. But even more importantly, our inclusion into a network of dedicated and highly skilled coaches and martial artists will improve not only the training but the training environment. In short, it will provide us with a family.
