    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.

    Just curious - why do you say Bettencourt should not be trusted?

    If you click IronMongoose's name, his profile will show that he hasn't been on the site since 1-21-2010, so a direct answer from him is unlikely. Hopefully, someone else will respond to one of your other TACT/Norm Bettencourt threads.

    The Burnaby judo dojo is very, very good.

    I will be in Abbotsford on September 25 and 26 for the BC Provincial JR team training with a few of my students.

    I've met Norm Bettencourt a couple of times, he seemed like a really nice guy. I actually trained under him to get my security license when I finally needed to obtain it. I have never really hung out with him but that few days I spent with him, he seemed alright. Granted I have seen some of his appearances on local media and I can see why you would come to that conclusion lol but all in all, he was a good guy when I met him.

    Since this thread has been necro-ed, I might as well add some Burnaby-relevant BJJ information: A couple of black belts from GB Vancouver have opened a club in Burnaby, Gracie Barra Burnaby. I can testify to John being an excellent instructor; I’ve never been taught by Gary, but he has a very solid game (and a very good tomoe-nage).
