SBG is without a doubt one of the premier martial arts academies on the East Coast.

Speaking as an Ultimate Fighter show veteran, UFC veteran, trainer of UFC athletes and BJJ Black Belt, when you're looking for a martial arts school the most important consideration is quality. Steve Whittier and his staff have an extremely high standard for teaching, a very high level of presenting information and sharing knowledge with his students. When it comes to achieving your goals in the martial arts, whether that's competition, losing weight, staying in shape or meeting friends – that's the most important thing. Check out SBG, you won't be disappointed!"*

10 Reasons Why Training At SBG Is

A Cut Above The Rest!


Fast-Start Free Trial Program

Here at Straight Blast Gym East Coast, we're known for our friendly, welcoming atmosphere – and that positive experience begins with our free Fast Start orientation and trial.  Just give us a call and one of our program consultants will set you up with your tour, personal consultation, introductory private lesson, and get your free gifts ready for your orientation appointment.

We already know we have the area's best program, so we have no problem letting you test-drive it risk free! And we're the only academy around that even backs it up with a 60 day results guarantee!


A Highly Structured Curriculum For Beginners

Our students are often pleasantly surprised that they can train alongside high-level athletes and instructors at their own pace, with a curriculum designed specifically for their needs, in a no-ego, "meat head free" environment.

Far beyond an "intro class," our highly evolved and organized Foundations program will teach you the fundamental skills you need to know to take you to the next level. You'll learn in a safe and supportive environment and progress at your own pace.


You Will Learn REAL Self Defense & Fighting Technique

A pioneer mixed martial arts organization (way back before the term "MMA" even existed*), SBG is a world leader in making realistic, proven self-defense and fight training safe and accessible to students of all ages, ability levels, and motivations for learning.

At SBG East Coast, there is no theory... everything we teach has been tested in real time so you can have total confidence in the skills you're learning. And whereas some MMA schools only teach sport competition, we are expert at showing you how to apply your skills to non-sport self-defense applications as well.


World Class Professional Instructors

Most MMA "gyms" just take their best athletes and make them instructors. Big Mistake - and as a student you may not even realize it! At SBG, our instructional staff is truly world class....

First, our staff must go through a rigorous, industry-leading instructor training and 100 hours of apprenticeship before becoming full instructors. Second, we have trained many top professional Mixed Martial Artists at the highest levels of competition (the UFC, EliteXC, TitanFC, BAMMA, Bellator, and more).

Bottom line: our coaches are dedicated to your long-term success and making sure that everyone who trains with us feels like a champion!

A Focus On Student Safety & Hygiene

​A big misconception about Mixed Martial Arts training is that you need to engage in wild sparring matches to get better. FALSE! But unfortunately, many students who have trained at inferior gyms have been "fed to the wolves" and thrown in with the wanna-be UFC fighters to spar and think that's how it is everywhere.

​At SBG East Coast, however, we understand how to train realistically for skill development – not injury! Sparring is always optional and introduced progressively, at each individual student's own pace. That's why we have everyone from professionals to women in their 50's and 60's having fun and learning under the same roof.

​We also take cleanliness very seriously, and clean the facility every day with hospital grade cleaners to ensure optimal hygiene.


Functional Fitness That Will Keep You Motivated For The Long Haul

SBG East Coast has been voted the #1 Health & Fitness Center in the South Coast area for six consecutive years (Gateway Favorites) for a reason. What's the secret?

The simple answer is that our students get great results... but it's more than that: our member retention is over 80% higher than the national average for health clubs and martial arts centers. That means our students not only get a great workout, they keep coming back because they love what they're learning and the great community.

Our beginner-friendly Foundations program is designed to get you up to speed on the techniques you need to progress while gradually getting you in shape to move to the next level. And once you graduate to our advanced programs, you can take your training and fitness to whatever level you choose. You'll burn fat, get a cardiovascular and muscular workout like you've never had before (even die-hard Crossfitters have been blown away by how they feel after an advanced MMA training session)!

State-Of-The-Art Facillity

A big training facility doesn’t mean much without an equally high level of service and instruction, but nowadays “MMA gyms” are popping up everywhere with instructors hoping that some nice mats and a cage will make up for their lack of expertise.

Luckily, SBG students get both a great facility and a world class curriculum. From the moment you walk into our professional 6,500 square-foot studio, you’ll know you’re in the right place. Our academy features two large training floors (3,500 square feet of mat space), a student lounge, pro shop, changing room, private lesson room, functional strength & conditioning equipment, and a variety of heavy bags and training pads... everything you need to be your best!


Expertise & Classes In All Areas Of MMA

Due to the fast growing popularity of Mixed Martial Arts and the UFC, there are tons of schools cropping up offering BJJ, MMA, and Muay Thai. But NO ONE offers a greater diversity of classes or the high level of expertise in all of the arts we teach as SBG!

Our students benefit get the benefit of training at one of the only professional academies in the country that has an equally high level of expertise in grappling and striking arts as well as in putting it all together.

SBGi East Coast is the real deal. Everything from the coaches to the culture and the technical expertise is top notch. The work they do with kids is enough to make this an elite gym, the fact that they have some top level coaches and fighters makes this something far more. Respect!”*

I've known Steve Whittier for many years and can say with confidence that he's one of the most intelligent and well-rounded martial artists that I have met. He has an extremely practical and effective approach to martial arts and has been invaluable to me in winning many of my grappling competitions and UFC fights. His knowledge of a myriad of disciplines and ability to analyze techniques is the mark of a unique and special teacher."*
