“It allows them to go conquer whatever they want to.”
“Whatever route they decide to take training for martial arts will help them.”
Those are the words of SBG athlete and UFC champion, Conor McGregor.
It is hard to get higher praise than that. Conor has made waves over the last few years in the UFC, conquering every challenge put in front of him, making history along the way. We are very proud of him, and he is just a piece of what SBG does for people. Everyday, all over the globe, coaches at SBG work to teach and mentor children in martial arts, and in the life lessons that they provide.
How Do SBG Coaches Do That?
The Growing Gorillas Program. The Same Program used at Conor McGregor’s home gym SBG Ireland. Originally developed by SBG Vice President Travis Davison. A program built specifically to assist in your child’s development, through the vehicle of martial arts.
With world class coaching continually producing some of the top athletes in the world, SBG is now a global phenomena in Mixed Martial Arts, Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Kickboxing, and of course Kids Martial Arts! Straight Blast has used this experience to continually develop its programs and curriculum to higher and higher standards, making sure that our coaches can bring the best training in the world to your child.
These may seem like overstated claims, but our program can greatly improve how your child learns to deal with problems. Martial arts, specifically “functional” martial arts, will directly affect your child’s success in school, in dealing with peer pressure, and in LIFE.
-Here’s Just A Few Examples-
–Respect – Through training they learn how to respect others, their training partners, elders, and most importantly themselves.
–Discipline – Our program takes a step by step process with the motto of 1% a day. To help instill the values your child needs to stay discipline and on task.
–Better Sleep – Tired of trying to “get them to bed”? Nothing promotes healthy sleep like exercise!
–Confidence – “Functional” martial arts, is the only way that your child can learn REAL skills, which allow your child to build REAL confidence.
–Concentration – Or coaches pay special attention to the details and in doing so allow your children to build higher levels of concentration. Concentration that they will carry with them no matter what they are doing, at home, or in school.
–Teamwork – The Growing Gorillas program allows the children to work together, to developing their new skill sets. Working as a group to achieve a higher level of skill, and maybe even competing together.
–Personal Accountability– All team sports allow for team work but no team sport can teach personal accountability like functional martial arts. People who take responsibility are proven to be more successful, humble, and grateful.
–The Ability To Defend Themselves – Nothing is more in-powering than knowing how to defend yourself. People who train tend to stand taller and speak more clearing. This isn’t a feigned skill or some process of teaching them to stand with good posture, it’s simply real confidence from the real training that they do in our academy.
