SBG Elko has been nothing short of amazing. From Day one Coach Chris has gone out of his way to be an ambassador for the sport. Coach Chris invited me to check out the facility and gave me a short “one on one” lesson demonstrating what I can gain from Jiu Jitsu. Starting with foundations I feel I am getting the right building blocks for success. From the coaches to the students I instantly felt like I am part of the tribe. I am definitely looking forward to future competition and contributing to the team’s success.

Chris is fantastic, so are John and Kierra. They teach discipline, respect, life lessons, body awareness, fitness, fun. I really can go on all night. If you are looking for something fun and different either for yourself or kids or both, go check Chris out at SBGi.

We, as a family, love the positive influence and respect that coach Chris offers to each kid, from acknowledging when they come in to the room to everything they want to say and share to the group, the idea of taking the time sit and talk values with them and how to better themselves in their everyday life is amazing and I appreciate it, and so does my husband. My boys look forward to go to practice, no matter how tired they might be, and the recognition system he has works wonders on this little souls.
I’m happy that we decided to come In one day and check this place out, we have nothing but good experience so far, good vibe, family oriented, clean, organized and most of all a positive attitude every day.
Kudos coach Chris.

Absolutely outstanding professional instruction from Chris. There is a reason the walls are lined with medals and trophies; it is obvious he’s been doing this for a long time and knows how to teach in a way that gets you better, faster with proper technique. Even more, with the backing of the Straight Blast Gym association, the school will always be the best in the area. The location is clean, organized, and family friendly. Kids and adults, men and women all have a welcome place on the mats. I can’t say enough about it!
