Home to 11 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts
SBG Athens is home to the longest running Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program in the area!
Because we have been teaching and training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for OVER 20 Years we are the only gym in the area with Six Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts on staff.
If you are truly interested in learning how to dominate your opponent on the ground then BJJ Training in Athens Georgia at SBG Athens is the place for you. Our students actively compete and win in just about every tournament held in Georgia. In addition, we are proud members of Straight Blast Gym International. Although Coaches Adam and Rory Singer initially received their Black Belts from Professor Roberto Traven (April 2009); Head Coach and Founder of SBG International, Matt Thornton, continues to award them their stripes. In 2018, both coaches were awarded their 3rd Degree from Coach Matt, who also happens to be a life long friend of the Singer Brothers.
We start teaching students as young as 3 years old and as old as 400. Here is just one example of what our students have to say about training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at SBG Athens (formerly The HardCore Gym):
[testimonial1_arial author=”Dale B., Park Ranger, US Army Corps of Engineers”]“I joined The HardCore Gym at 40 years old looking for a fun way to get myself in better shape. With no prior grappling experience, I really had no expectations about what their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program would be like. As a fan of mixed martial arts, I was already aware of the gym’s reputation for producing world champion fighters. It didn’t take long to see why – the BJJ program is ran by three black belts and several other advanced level (purple and brown belt) instructors with years of experience, and whose past trainers and training partners are literally a “who’s who” of the BJJ world. Students are taught first and foremost the basics of BJJ defense and offense in a patient, friendly learning environment. The training I received helped me win my division at the North American Grappling Association (NAGA) National Championships after only five months, and I’ve lost nearly 30 pounds and feel stronger than ever. Whether you are interested in MMA, BJJ, or just getting in better shape, I’m convinced there is no better place and I look forward to training at The Hardcore Gym and competing under that banner for years to come.”[/testimonial1_arial]
