A Fun, Friendly, Challenging Environment

We understand that sometimes the hardest part about joining a martial arts school is actually walking in the front door. People have a preconceived idea of what it is going to be like, and it can very intimidating.  At Straight Blast Gym Niagara, we take away any anxiety you may be feeling the moment you walk into our gym.

From our non-traditional, relaxed friendly atmosphere, to the welcoming nature of our coaches and members, and the overall “we appreciate you giving us the opportunity to show you our gym" vibe,  you'll feel comfortable and secure in the fact that you are welcome,  and will not be taken advantage of and are being trained by qualified world class coaches.

"I first met Rich at a seminar in Canada a few years back. My immediate impression was one of absolute sincerity. Rich trained hard, tried to help everyone he worked with, and had an obvious aptitude for the information being offered. But what came across the most was the genuine concern he had for the students in his class, and at his gym. 

I travel often around the world, and finding someone with Rich’s skill and ability to teach is rare. But what is even more rare is finding someone like that who truly cares as much as Rich does about his people. And that sincerity cannot be faked. 

So, with that I can honestly say I would recommend Rich’s instruction, classes, and facility to anyone who asked. Regardless of experience, background, age, or specific objective, you will find something worthwhile in Rich’s teachings. And you will enjoy yourself along the way as well."
