SBG of Alabama
This gym was established in 1990 for the sole purpose of finding the truth in practical and functional martial arts by using the philosophies, concepts, principals and theories of Jan Fan Jeet Kune Do. They have evolved into a gym that offers a lifestyle in functional martial arts such as Muay Thai, Submission Wrestling, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, MMA and JKD.
Instruction in all three ranges of combat is provided, with instructors who are helpful and experienced in a wide range of disciplines such as BJJ/Wrestling for ground, Judo/Wrestling for take-downs and Boxing/Muay Thai for stand up. There is also a JKD class and Escrima instruction, plus a MMA class for established members of the gym.
The current gym space is excellent, with plenty of room for training, a MMA cage and an attached hard-floor gym the size of several basketball courts. Contact level varies upon the range and experience level. They also include an excellent conditioning regimen at the beginning of each class.
Update: This gym has moved to a new location which is much much larger with better equipment. I have updated the ratings to reflect this.
