    Burnaby Bullies

    I've left the MA desert I was in and come back home. Now I feel like a kid in a candy store. Before I go trying stuff out I just wanna see if I missed out on anything good.
    So far I've found
    Probably awesome:
    Judo
    Catch wrestling
    BJJ/MT/MMA
    Boxing
    Kyokushin
    Wrestling at SFU (a friend tells me they have a rec league but I haven't seen any evidence yet)

    Can't tell if awesome or not
    SanDa
    CobraKai

    Probably crap
    Aikido
    Master Gee's Blackbelt academy
    Tae Kwon Do

    Did I miss anything? Especially anything good?

    UBC used to have a club. But it's defunct. But one of its ex members teaches at the UBC judo club. But it's only for students (I think). Sad face.

    I'm not looking for suggestions on what art to study, but known good clubs in the area that I might have overlooked.

    Last I checked (=about two years ago), almost all the martial arts clubs at UBC are run through the REC centre (the Shito-Ryu karate people, for some odd reason, are just an AMS club). I’m pretty sure the judo club is run by UBC-REC. UBC-REC clubs are open to the public, though they tend to charge a bit more for non-students.

    Feel free to come south to Seattle for your SAMBO fix, we can hook you up.

    The UBC club may one day reform, but one Luc who was the driving force is back in Europe dealing with some health issues. They have been defunct for some time.

    Micheal who was their head coach is very active in Judo in BC.

    Several good MMA or old-school bjj clubs in that area. I'm a Marcus Soares fan for Gi Jiu Jitsu, but he is not for everyone.

    If you want Judo, Burnaby has the best dojo west of Montreal. I've never seen more black belts on the mat at one time anywhere else. I think it's where black belts from all the other Vancouver area clubs go for extra practice.

    I do Gracie Barra BJJ with Cocoon, that's Main and Broadway in Vancouver.

    For you in Bby, Columbia Martial Arts will be closer.

    Cobra Kai used to have Soares doing BJJ, but he's moved elsewhere (Universal?). I don't think there's anything good there now. Stay away from TACT (Norm Bettencourt). The guy is a moron and a dick.

    A-hah. There are at least three of us on here, then, though I haven’t seen Skepticus around lately…
