Welcome! Here at Dynamic Mixed Martial Arts
our main focus is fun, fitness and technique. Whether we’re working with elite level K1 fighters, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, MMA & Muay Thai champions or your local kindergarten teacher, our emphasis is on having fun. This is an environment where parents can feel free to come in and train with their children (we have a few father/son teams) right alongside someone gearing up for their next fight or tournament.
Our student base ranges from Librarians to Police Officers, from Fire Fighters to High School Students! Wherever your life finds you now, you’ll find a comfortable place to get fit and have fun; all while training with the most skilled fighters, coaches and athletes in BC.
You’re invited to train with us for a free week just to try out our environment. Train as much as you want, in as many classes as you can, to get a good feel for our team. You don’t need any gear to start, just wear shorts and bring a change of t-shirt; we’ll take care of the rest.
Every great journey begins with a single step; we were all beginners once.
See you at the gym!

12-7-2013- What an incredible night!
First at WSOF, we had Brendan Kornberger whose sick ground and pound caused his opponents corner to throw in the towel to stop the devastation. It also caused Bas Rutten to yell out, “This guy can HIT!” Next at WSOF we had Dan Ring who went a grueling three rounds, back and forth- wicked scrambles, takedown defense and standup exchanges. His opponent won a decision. Final fighter at WSOF was Mike Hill, who completely dominated his opponent right up until his opponent stopped the fight due to an injured leg.
At BFL we had young Cole Smith who managed to guillotine his opponent into submission at only 48 seconds in the first round. Deadly. Next we had Robin Laybourne whose steel hands delivered devastating blows causing the fight to be stopped in the second round.
We are so immensely proud of all of you; all who came to watch, all who supported them getting ready, all who volunteered time to make sure the events went smoothly.

2-16-13- From the Globe and Mail about Adam Ryan’s training with the Canucks’ Zack Kassian- “The final complement to Kassian’s work- all in, dropping 15 or so pounds- came in the Vancouver suburbs in a mixed martial arts octagon. Several years ago, the Canucks dispatched some prospects for basic lessons, mostly for fitness, under the direction of Brazilian Jiu Jitus Black Belt and long-time MMA coach Adam Ryan- but Gillis figured Kassian would benefit from more hands-on work.
There were some 15 hour-long sparring sessions through the summer.
“It was everything,” Kassian said. “It’s just the little things. Obviously, in the game, there’s going to be times you need to defend yourself, just little techniques and whatnot.”
