Matt Heads To Montana
Each year Matt does a seminar circuit and Montana is always a priority on the list. His visit to Kalispell typically is accompanied by land mark belt promotions and this years visit was no different.
Two of SBG’s Youngest Black Belts
“I awarded my eleventh and twelfth black belt on Saturday. At nineteen Ricky and Stella Davison are now the youngest members of SBG to earn the rank of black belt in Jiu Jitsu. They are also the first twins and first sister and brother at SBG to share the rank. They have been training and competing for fifteen years and coaching for the last few years. Today Ricky opens @sbgbozeman and Stella flies back to Rhode Island to pursue her Olympic dream. I couldn’t be prouder of these two amazing human beings.” -Travis Davison

Matt’s review of last months podcast.
Mastering The Mount 2 – ESCAPE
Last month we saw the release of Matt’s second series on the mount “ESCAPE”. Check out the preview and click below for more info.
Here’s what Matt Thornton had to say about the series.
“Each year I produce one instructional series. The process is generally the same. I pick one topic to focus on for the entire year. I structure it solely around the core fundamentals – not always what’s most “basic,” but always what’s most important – and I arrange it in order that will benefit students the most.

The Seminar Circuit Continues in Buford
Rory Singer and Phillipe Gentry On Matt’s New Seminar Series
“Although I missed today I’m so glad I was able to make Coach Matt Thornton’s seminar on Saturday. It was a great day to say the least. Awesome BJJ, spending time with some of my favorite people, spending time with the Buford Tribe, eating good food with great company, seeing my friends new house, and getting a sneak peak of my friend’s future new gym. It’s not everyday that you accomplish so much awesome.” – Rory Singer
“Every time I have the opportunity to learn in person from my Coach Matt Thornton I’m blown away by how much I grow as a martial artist. This weekend was no different. It’s amazing that after 18 years of practicing Jiu Jitsu that I still have so many ah-ha moments. I’m honored to learn under Coach Matt and even more so to receive another stripe from him. Thank you to everyone that came out to support the seminar. The Tribe is STRONG!!
