Just join and try it out. Every gym out there offers at least a free class for you to check it out. I think Dynamic still offers a free 1 week trial. There's no formal classes for the next 2 weeks because of the holidays. It's all open mats so we just show up and do whatever we want with whoever is there. Just drop by and talk to Will (604CEFIRO) @ the front and he'll give you all the info you need.

it's good for beginners. a lot of people that join don't have any martial art experience. i pretty much had zero experience when i joined. wednesday and friday is more geared toward learning more technical stuff. just come by after the new year to the wednesday class if you wanna try it out.

Carson is such a slacker but he'd wreck me Both of them use to train at Dynamic and I remember Derek was pretty damn good on the ground. Kameron does BJJ @ Dynamic. Haven't seen him in a long time though

first off, youre not supposed to jump into MMA if you dont have any background in any other martial arts experience. a good instructor would tell you go learn some BJJ or whatever first. Once you get enough experience, he'll tell you to go to his MMA sessions after. Whoever that let you do MMA right away probably wants your money.

Thanks for the info Stealth.

I will deff check it out in the new year.

Do they sell any nice Tee Shirts or hoodys at the Dynamic Pro Shop.

Like anything that isnt all Gaudy and douchebag looking. Like some of the Dethrone Royalty stuff looks clean.

Cant seem to find anywhere that sells stuff besides Tap Out/SiverStar/Affliction.

If I choose to go with kickboxing first, where's the best place to go?
If I choose to go with BJJ first, where's the best place to go?

Locations preferred: Vancouver (not dt), BBY (metro area)

thx

BJJ go with west coast BJJ. has a gym across from Bubbleworld.

good coach, their guys always win most of the BJJ tourneys in BC. associated with ricardo de la riva who created the de la riva guard who in turn trains with the nogueira brothers and marcelo garcia. they often do seminars in vancouver too.


no idea with muay thai.

i did boxing for stand up and i went to astoria which is like a straight up ghetto rocky balboa gym. but the guy who runs it is straight up old school.

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

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.

Rather than starting an all new thread:

I come from a Judo background but it's been many years since I practiced. Tournament based stuff like Jiu Jitsu or Muay Thai aren't really what I'm after, I want real world disciplines. I'd like to get into Krav Maga or perhaps a more aggressive variant of Kyokushin. An old friend of mine is a black belt in Kyo but his teacher was ex-military and had his own spin on it, not sure if that is replicated anywhere locally.

I'm not opposed to classes but would rather have more personalized training, small groups etc. I'm not at all into standing in front of a mirror for an hour practicing kickboxing combination's, that shit's a waste of time. I'm not looking for an MMA gym but thought this would be a good thread to ask these questions in. I don't plan to compete on any level, this is just for my own health/fitness/personal use.

Any suggestions or experiences?

Haha I'm not bashing MMA at all it's just not what I'm really looking for. But I figured some people here may have a lead on some different style gym's But I am gonna bash kickboxing schools that make students do combos in front of a mirror for hours on end with little to no real bag or pad work mixed in. Might as well do some Billy Blanks videos.
