 Congrats due to our newest MMA team member Shane Smith!

With just under two years at SBGi, Shane started his MMA career with his first fight at the Roseland theater in June. Shane worked very hard to prepare and wound up winning by RNC in just over 1 minute of the first round. It doesn't get any better then that! Look for Shane to be very active on the local fight scene in the coming years.

Following Shane's win in June, SBG fighter Tom Matijacik took a   fight at the EWC in Vancouver WA on June 27th. Tom finished the   fight with strikes on the ground, winning by TKO in just under        two minutes of the first round. Way to go Tom! Look for Tom to  make his pro debut sometime within the next couple months.


That same week some well deserved promotions took place at the Portland Gym. Big congrats toBrooks, Drew, Anthony and Justin Evans on earning their blue belt. Also, huge congrats due to SBG's own Chris Stearns on earning his purple belt. Chris went through a 30 person, hour long ironman session in the finest tradition of the Portland Gym.

On a final note, despite the lagging economy we are happy to announce the Portland Gym has been rocking in terms of both classes, and new members. With a record number of sign ups for this Summer, and some exciting news to announce soon. See you in the gym!
