BJJ

Whether you’re training for Gi or No Gi BJJ competitions or you just want to learn some real-world self-defence skills, keep fit and make new friends, we have you covered here at SBG Bury. Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program offers comprehensive coaching for people of all experience levels, genders or ages and its not uncommon to find world renowned practitioners training with everyday professionals.

MMA

Mixed Martial Arts is a full combat sport that allows both striking, clench fighting and grappling. The techniques used are from various Combat Sports/MMA such as, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Kick Boxing, Wrestling, Muay Thai and more. Here at SBG Bury all our classes are delivered in a fun and informative manner regardless of ability levels.

KICK BOXING

Learn the best striking skills today and combine them with a total-body workout that will leave you feeling fitter and stronger than ever before. Our Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes at SBG Bury offer beginners and experienced athletes alike a chance to push themselves with high-energy workouts and effective self-defence skills.

SELF DEFENCE

At Straight Blast Gym, we teach you self-defence through Aliveness. The missing piece between the demonstration and the actual practice is something SBG’s have been practising for years.

JUDO

Judo is a grappling art that utilises throwing & trip techniques to take an opponent to the Ground and control them. Judo’s primary focus is on throwing and groundwork which is accomplished through a variety of rolls, falls, throws, hold downs, chokes, joint-locks, and strikes.

BOXING

You may be interested in the fitness aspects and/or the self-defence aspects provided by training Boxing. Boxing offers a great workout while bouncing around hitting mitts and the heavy bag.

KIDS CLASSES

Our children’s programme builds confidence, self esteem and genuine respect for each other and their new friends with self defence via BJJ, Judo, wrestling, and defensive striking. We use MMA style grappling in clinch making use of the 2 metre high padded walls in our gym. Many of our 6 year olds can talk a parent through a strategy to safely restrain an attacker with a wall pin and if required, take them to the ground.
