I joined the gym yesterday with both my sons and my wife and from start to finish from the tour of the gym I was highly... impressed. I have trained before at schools in California and none compares to this. Coach Leah helped make us feel right at home and I took my first class today and loved every minute of it. I am very impressed with the professionalism and the curriculum for not just adults but the children’s program as well. Can’t wait to train and learn from these high level coach’s and friends. Going to be fun to be apart of this gym. Can’t wait to see both my sons skill levels increase and grow here. Thank you to everyone at SBG Kalispell for welcoming me today and look forward to growing with you all.read more

i have been going to the kalispell SBG for 5 years now. there is a lot to offer from this institution. From Yoga, self... defense and weight regiment training is offered. High energy/driven individuals doing all the programs can benefit from the subscription; subscribing to all these programs individually would cost far more elsewhere. The yoga side is calm and the people are coherent. the martial arts side is unique and exhilarating. combat training is a very personal experience where one has to be internally 'open' to be 'externally' proficient. This gives perspective on themselves and others. For anyone seeking a new journey SBG gives testament to that goal. Thanks Famread more

SBG is a place where anyone from any walk of life or skill level can achieve their goals. The impact SBG has had on my... life in the short 2 years I’ve been training isn’t something I could have ever imaged. I couldn’t recommend a place more for self improvement and physical and mental growth. Travis and Kisa are extremely professional and put personal care into every student at their academy. Great place, great vibe.read more

It’s been almost 7 years since my son and I joined SBG Montana. I walked in looking for self defense classes and ended... up with so so much more. The people that make up this community are the best around. My son and I are far better off because of this gym. Thank you and here’s to many more years with my Tribe 💖read more

Phenomenal gym! My then six year old wanted to learn a martial art. After calling a few other gyms in the area, we... found SBG....and we are so glad we did. My son has been training for nearly four years and I joined him a year later. They are warm and welcoming, great family environment. Coach Travis and Kisa have built an amazing tribe and we are so blessed to be a part of it. If you are looking for fitness, yoga, martial arts...look no further.read more

Health, confidence, experience, friendships, skills, positivity.. a few things you are likely to experience. I joined... as a broken USMC veteran and through their dedicated yoga program, i have significantly improved my conditions and have regained peace of mind. Their martial arts program is world class, coaches who have real experience, tried and tested, friendly and knowledgeable, it doesnt get much better. Combine all that and you have their kids program.. developed to help kids become resilient and strong with healthy life skills. SBG Montana is the bees knees! Thank you!read more
