    Vancouver BC or Vancouver WA?

    I am in Vancouver BC and I've been training at Tactix Gym in Krav Maga for the last 2 years. They also offer kickboxing, BJJ, conditioning and cross fit.

    lately, I've been testing Maelstrom. They offer South-East Asia martial arts such as Kali and Silat.

    Sugarrays on Granville, buyer beware, the owner is rude, aggressive , and may have boxers dementia. The sales pitch is friendly service, most member avoid the owner and won't come in if he is there. The staff trainers are good but they all leave after a few weeks or months. The owner will not train anybody. He may know a lot but so what if he never teaches it. Otherwise, the standard boxing techniques are not allowed for beginner, this leaves lots of confusion as many people already have some training. it seems the Sugarrays methods are weird and outdated, not the stuff Freddie roach or Russ anber use as basic boxing technique or almost all other boxing gyms. The owner insults members and staff in front of all making a very unfriendly space to train, trainers have to hid standard training methods, members are getting frustrated, it is too sad, as it could be a good gym if under better management. Former members sincere comments. If you really want to learn proper boxing , pay a bit more, and go to well know trainers like north burnaby boxing, griffins, or dynamics or queens bough, or tony pep in new west. East side boxing also should be up and running soon and will likely put Sugarrays out of business" or take a lot of members. another place is "beyond boxing
