    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone who trains, has trained, or just knows about SBGi Classes?

    I ask because I am looking at their weekly schedules, and I am wonder what classes are there for the beginners like me. I ask mainly so I can try to plan a schedule with that included so that things may run a bit smoother when I go to start training.

    I know I can email them, and I have, but the reply is pretty slow(took a week last time) and I understand, they are very busy people.

    So I figured I would ask anyone here who does/has train(ed) there.

    Thanks!
    Thomas

    Welcome aboard, CharlesTC! The Bullshido staff would welcome you personally, but the thing is they’re busy keeping the peace, so they’ve apointed me, a bot, to pat you on the back and assure you that in no way will you be harmed during your stay here at BS.net. Your views on the martial arts, your philosphy, maybe even your entire reason for being will be challenged, shattered, reorganized, melted down, and forged into something new and shiny, but we swear it will only hurt a little bit… at first.

    I was of the impression SBGi was held in quite high regard on this site, especially considering they originated and popularised 'aliveness' as a term. I think you probably couldn't do much better if you tried, bro!

    CharlesTC, did you check their website for a class schedule?

    SBGi is held in high regard. You cannot go wrong with them or their affiliate schools.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Used to train in New York with them, and intend on going back some time. They're great.

    If you send a link to the school/schedule you're talking about people can advise you more specifically. Also mention what you're interested in primarily (learning a specific style: MMA, BJJ, etc. or general self-defense, or whatever).

    At the place I was at, their schedule was divided into MT based Kickboxing classes, BJJ Classes and MMA Classes (subdivided into Takedown&Clinch classes and Jits w/ Hits classes).

    As a beginner you'll probably wanna focus on getting in Kickboxing & BJJ practice. Takedown and Clinch work is fine too. However Matt Thornton recommends that you avoid taking Jits w/ Hits type offerings until you have a solid ground game to build on.

    Oh also, very important. Unless you are a very athletic or experienced person, ramp up to a full training load. Seriously, go there an absolute *maximum* of 3 times a week to begin with. Otherwise you will definetly have to take time off for an injury.

    No, I am moving to Portland in a few months.

    And to h_sh_m thanks, that was what I was looking for.

    I have pretty much read the SBGi Site from top to bottom, inside and out. I am pretty stoked about training there!
