^ I was going to tell 604CEFIRO about the Nipples thing when both he and I were talking about Revscene lol. The conversation went a different direction, though, so I didn't get the chance to tell him.

Guess I'll see you tomorrow. Working on my paper now so hopefully I'll get enough finished to have some free time to drop by tomorrow.

How was revolution? I'm thinking of going there because on their site it says 10 bucks for a week of training, which isn't so bad. It's nice to pick and choose, and get my feet wet for a pretty good price.

Go to the shop at the front of the store and ask for Will. He has a new shipment of Jaco stuff that came in last week.

I think he's the only place that sells Jaco locally cause the other place on W. 4th closed down. I highly recommend the Jaco fight shorts because they're awesome

Don't know the exact price. Just walk in and ask Will (604CEFIRO). The shop is inside Dynamic at the front.

Haven't done an MMA class but I find that they're mostly all of the advanced/senior guys that train in it.

Your gym seems pretty traditional (tma) and more geared towards kids...

Theres nothing wrong with traditional martial arts since mma draws from all types of martial arts..

But i think crowds that enjoy mma have learned that TMA styles don't fair as well in real world applications.

I like tma's, in the way that they teach discipline etc etc... WHen i have kids im definately enrolling them into a tma sport first.

Are there any gyms that have awesome BJJ and Muay Thai??

I want to start training but not for MMA. It seems like most of the gyms that have awesome BJJ have seriously lacking striking programs that have been added as a afterthought.

Is it considered disrespectful to train at two different gyms?? Like for example Gracie Berra for BJJ and somewhere else for Muay Thai.

I want to start going to Dynamic in the near future, but I'm wondering if I need good conditioning before starting?
I'm a beginner, so definitely will be taking those beginner classes.

Why didn't you go to the Xmas party? It was alright. Gave away some cool prizes, few people won a free month.

I don't think you need THAT great conditioning for beginner muay thai classes. One thing I wish was they do different is give you a harder workout. I took one class of all levels mma, and that is where I was huffing and puffing.

Apparently they will begin running crossfit classes in the new year, I am excited about that.

it's not disrespectful as long as you tell both head instructors. don't hide the fact that you train at the other gym. the worst are those new people that come in and pretend they have no experience.

which area do you live in and how far are you willing to travel?

Ya Dynamic does look sick but I think it is too far from me.

I'm looking for Vancouver/Burnaby. I do not drive so its kind of a bitch.

Thats why I was thinking Gracie Barra for BJJ and Kai SingThong for Thai Boxing.

At first I was thinking of doing Judo because it is so cheap, but I want more traditional with more Newaza. Not all this Olympic sport geared clubs which seems to be all there is.

I plan on starting one of the other BJJ or Thai Box first for about a year then add the other if I can manage it.

for the record I have previous TKD, Karate and western boxing training. But that was about 10 years ago. I stopped at 19 I am 30 now. I only really liked the boxing, the rest seemed too much like a money grab mcdojo type of deal.

I am also only 5' 4'' 120lbs and I dont think I am getting any bigger lol.

you can come train with my judo club. we do half newaza and half tachiwaza.

but on mondays the instructor is really open. he asks us what we wanna learn. so if you want to learn newaza the whole class, then you can. if you wanna do no-gi, we can do that. if you wanna do tachiwaza, you can. the guy is a real beast on the ground.

wednesday we learn stuff more geared towards competitions. still very technical.

friday is a lot more traditional stuff. textbook style.

if you join a really competitive club like burnaby judo, it's all competition based. not technical, just rely on strength.

my club is at renfrew community centre if you wanna come train with us. we have a lot of bjj guys that train with us.

monday 8:30-10
wed 7-8:30
fri 6-7:30

but with the holidays. the only classes in december left is 22nd and 29th. then we start again on jan 5.

Hey Stealthfighter,
I never learned a martial art, is this gym decent for beginners? If it is more geared towards learning technique, I think that would be more appropriate for me as I want to learn a martial art not just "rely on strength" for competitions.

Here are a few pics of the Dynamic that 604CEFIRO took last night

604CEFIRO's Gear Locker MMA shop at the front of the gym




Mats at the end and a cage to the right. Stairs beside the cage lead up to the change rooms.


Cage


Top down view of the gym from the changing room area upstairs


Open mat session last night was good. Decent mix of muay thai and bjj guys just going around and working on whatever they want. It was fun watching the guys spar in the cage.
