Straight Blast Gym of Seattle: Welcome, new WSB sponsor

We’re welcoming Straight Blast Gym of Seattle as a WSB sponsor – with a special event coming up this weekend. Here’s what they want you to know about their business:

At Straight Blast Gym of Seattle, we not only teach martial arts, we teach movement. We strive to connect the sense of effort and enjoyment, providing an environment that is physically demanding yet playful in nature. We operate out of a 5300-square-foot warehouse converted into a martial-arts and fitness facility, conveniently located on Delridge Way, with more than 1700 square feet of mat space. Needless to say, there is plenty of room to climb, jump, lift, roll, kick, punch, and most importantly, MOVE.

Straight Blast Gym of Seattle is what we like to call the “third place.” It is a community that fosters deep bonds and relationships with individuals that are just like you. Everyone knows that we are a martial-arts gym, and anyone with a computer can Google search “Straight Blast Gym” and figure that our coaching methods are world class – there is no doubt that you’ll learn something new, and learn it well. So, what sets us apart? Why are we different? Community. Oftentimes, the sense that people truly care about you is overlooked when looking for a martial arts and fitness facility. We emphasize community because it’s the most important element in helping you reach your goals.

Most people seek us out because we are very approachable, and our community is so diverse. Our gym is not like your typical martial-arts academy, as it has plenty of personality. We do not adhere to the norms, because everyone here is considered family. People continue coming back because they see results, whether that is weight loss, increased confidence, learning martial arts, or that feeling of being alive again; everyone eventually reaches their goals, whether you’re a child or adult. Our Growing Gorillas is a children’s martial arts program designed to help your child improve focus, self-control, discipline, and a positive self-image within a fun, safe, and family-friendly environment that emphasizes goal setting and achievement. No matter what program you enroll in, you will begin to achieve the goals you’ve set.

The coaches never think about how they transform lives, because we are so busy noticing how much our students change our own lives. We offer a variety of programs for people of all ages, our youngest student is 3 and our oldest student is 59:

Brazilian Jiujitsu
Muay Thai
Warrior Woman Strength and Conditioning
Youth Martial Arts
Personal Training
Before and After School Care

Also coming up: We are hosting a free women’s self-defense seminar on Sunday, April 27th at noon:

We will also be collecting items for New Beginnings, a women’s shelter in Seattle that does some amazing things. Here’s the Facebook event.

If you want to see for yourself what we offer and what we’re all about, contact us today to schedule your free consultation and private lesson.

We thank Straight Blast Gym of Seattle for sponsoring independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news via WSB; see our current sponsor team listed in directory format here, and find info on joining the team by going here.

    I have been going to SBG for almost a year–the hardest part for me was getting the nerve to walk in the door. I was intimidated by the martial arts emphasis, but SBG is really so much more.

    Monday night yoga is taught by an awesome lady, super relaxing way to start the week. For women who feel like they need to get in shape in a supportive environment, Warrior Women is the pace to go. Starting BJJ training last month, everyone has been incredibly helpful and positive.

    If you have kids, the childrens martial arts class is worth checking out. The instructors always amaze me how they can take a roomful of hyped up kids and get them to focus on their drills, teaching them discipline and self control. So cool!

    The most important part of the gym, though, is their community drives, potlucks, game nights, special events like the Women’s Self Defense class this Sunday. Come check it out!

    I love Straight Blast Gym Seattle. I joined the Women Warrior program nine months ago, and I truly look forward to my workouts at 6 am with Joey Cole. The other women in my class are now my good friends. One of the best things, as Joan mentioned, is the mutual support at the gym. EVERYONE is supported, and dare I say it, loved.

    I love having SBGiSeattle as my third place.

    Don’t be intimidated. Come work out with us.

Sorry, comment time is over.
