    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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