RONIN ATHLETICS is the Straight Blast Gym affiliate in the heart of NYC, and is a leading Mixed Martial Arts training facility. Our goal is to provide an environment where all people, of any background, experience & fitness level, can learn and train in the combat sports that comprise MMA. Ronin Athletics offers a variety of classes in Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Kickboxing. While the emphasis of training in a particular class may be different, the overall format and structure of the class will often be similar.
The SBGi is about people, and our goal is to offer the cutting edge in self-defense, combat athletics, fitness, and personal growth to every type of human body that walks through our door. Not just to 22 year-old athletes (although they will certainly find their niche here as well), but also to: professional men and women who have to work 45-hour weeks or manage families; older people looking to get into shape, have fun, and learn self-defense; and children of all ages who can learn the arts in a positive atmosphere of friendship and fun.
