SBGi Fall Camp

This year's Fall Camp is being hosted by Rich Beaupit in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Scheduled for October 13-15, the Fall Camp will include instruction by some of SBGi's top coaches who will be traveling from all over the globe.

Dozens of international students will also be in attendance so you don't want to miss out. Rich is also organizing some non-martial-arts events for spouses who may wish to attend (wine tours, tours of the Falls, etc.) so why not make it a family weekend? Book that weekend off and join in the fun!

Here is the teaching line-up (with additional guest's to be announced!)

Matt Thornton (Portland OR, SBGi President & BJJ black belt): New Top-Game Material, and release of Series #3!

Luis Gutierrez (Florida, SBGi VP & BJJ black belt): ISR-PM and So-Flo™ Jiu-jitsu

Karl Tanswell (England, SBGi RD): latest innovations in Rather Intelligent Monkey™

Eric Hemphill (Portland OR, SBGi Headquarters Staff & BJJ black belt) No Gi Jits & Jits for MMA!

Steve Whittier (Boston, SBGi RD):Cool stuff!

Mike and Rebecca Sweeney (Kingston, SBGi RD): More Cool stuff!

Travis Davison (Oregon, SBGi Headquarters Staff): Clinch & 1/4 Position

In addition we will be announcing more guests and events... this includes the release and premier of the much anticipated Series #3 which will be released at Camp, and premiered by the editor Christian Graugart from Denmark!

The hotel is located just a five minute walk from Clifton Hill, The Gardens by the Falls, Casino Niagara (the old one), and the Falls themselves.

Rich has reserved a block of rooms as follows:

Here are the rates we received:

Wednesday – Friday: $89.00

These are some the best rates around, especially for the proximity we have to the Falls and various attractions.

Rooms are being held under "Straight Blast Gym International". To book a room, everyone must call in to the hotel individually and book their room under the SBGI group. This will give them the rates I have listed above.

There are at least 6 of us coming from Kingston Rich. Can't wait.

These guys are all fantastic and worth ten times the price.

An amazing time will be had by all...





more than 1 from T.O.

and this time there will be power AND clean water!
(not to mention REAL beer!)

Phil, thanks for the kind words. Hope you can make the camp.

Does anyone have any of their teenage students attending? I have about 7 of mine that will be at the camp, and they would love to have some new people their age to train with.

Just finishing up things at the gym. The new mats are down, 145 feet of the walls are padded, and the Octagon gets padded this weekend. It will be ready for the Camp, and then I am looking to invite others down for some training sessions.

Not everyone is going to get the UFC, or even an amateur show, but I have guys that would love to get together with other gyms and have a non-political, no ego day of fun and good hard training, then maybe a night out after that.

I would also like to start having guest coaches in once a month at my gym. Not so much a seminar, rather take the class for the night and offer your expertise to us. I'm open to discuss what anyone would want money/compensation wise, and with the talent pool in this area I think it would be a great way to share your skills.

If anyone reading this would be interested in it, please contact me at 905.329.5425 or



awesome suggestion Rich !!
If you are interested, my judo instructor, Mohammad K, and myself are interested in helping out when you get this started.


If I wasn't shooting that weekend I'd be all over that.

The gym is looking fantastic and the weekend will be a blast. My guys are honoured to be part of this gym and the cross training ideas will only make us all better.

Thank you Mong. I am very interested in having you and your Judo coach come up.

I'm busy with the Camp right now, but I will contact you right after it to set something up.

Thanks for getting the ball rolling.
