SBGi 2003
Bangkok Thailand Retreat a HUGE success!


Last June the SBGi held it’s first Thailand training Camp. The Camp was held in Bangkok and featured nightly instruction with SBGi President and BJJ black belt Matt Thornton, and SBGi Regional Director and renowned stand up Coach Rodney “chico” King.


The group of 16 athletes from the USA, Africa, Australia, Singapore, and Korea, stayed at a luxury hotel, and classes were held in the hotel itself. The reviews and response that followed the Camp have been incredibly positive, with everyone in attendance having a fantastic time, enjoying the training, and creating new friendships.

Here are some pics from last Year
(2003’s) Bangkok retreat:


Liam from Australia has a grueling match. Liam is a cool guy, and it was great to meet him at the retreat. He has recently experienced some good success in MMA, and has a great overall game.

The Thai people over all are very gentle and friendly. There is good reason for this.
