This is the story of Sam Tally as told by his father Dr. William Tally: licensed orthopedic surgeon, GA Regents Med-School Professor, and father of Sam, a young SBG Tribe member.
William found SBG while looking for an outlet for his sons.
His oldest son, Sam, had long struggled expressing himself and focusing on tasks. William discovered SBG through a friend’s recommendation.
“I first learned about SBG from my dearest friend, Pete,” William says.
Pete had taken private training sessions with Coach Rory Singer, SBG Co-Proprietor and Head Coach of the Growing Gorillas Martial Arts and Youth Enrichment Program. Pete enjoyed the sessions and persuaded William that his sons would enjoy mixed martial arts training more than “the usual karate experience.”
William took his sons to the gym and both enjoyed their classes and had fun with the staff there. However, Sam “really fell in love,” William says. SBG provided a fun, safe place for Sam to enjoy himself and grow. For William, the gym offered a wealth of positive role models for his son, an extension of the values of discipline and healthy self-expression that he preaches in the home.
“By training under Master Rory, Sam has grown both athletically and personally,” William tells us. Not only has this gym—and it’s coaches—provided physical training and skills, they have provided role models (now even more import following William’s divorce). Rory cares about these kids. He will push them, congratulate them, and scold them as necessary. They strive to provide a complete martial arts training, not just fighting skills. For that, I am grateful.”
