Baram Dejam (musician): "Top notch trainers and great space. Mats  all throughout the gym. Most importantly, the community at Lions MMA is exceptional. Everyone is super nice, friendly and welcoming. The training is intense and fun! Not to mention how fast time flies and it's extremely addictive. If you are looking to get the training and support you need to get into the octagon or you like to push your limits and get in the best shape of your life physically and mentally, this place is for you. This is why I love training at Lions!"

Just finished my free trial and signed up as new member!
I put off going to this gym for a long time due to anxiety and man was that time wasted. The staff could not have been more helpful with me as we figured out which plan best suited my unique schedule. All the instructors I've been able to work with have been really open and patient with me. I highly recommend this gym for anyone looking to learn about MMA, self-defence, or just wanting a good workout.

Todd Tinant (member):  Joining Lions MMA completely changed my life. Lions is one place I can go to feel welcome and comfortable to be myself, have fun and grow. Everyone at the gym is so nice and welcoming, from my Jiu-Jitsu training partners, to the awesome staff of trainers and coaches. The culture of the gym is so positive and encouraging, with the right amount of hard work and grit. Physically and mentally, I have grown so much since joining this amazing gym.

Rhandall Tydd-Whiting (Health Care Practitioner): Joining Lions MMA has been an awesome experience! I was looking for a way to get fit when a friend brought me to Lions for the free week trial. Immediately I was hooked! I had never thought of myself as athletic enough to keep up with a fast-paced kickboxing class, but I found the instructors encouraged me to keep improving in both my technique and physical condition. I feel better physically and mentally since joining Lions. I noticed myself losing weight and getting fit within a month. It is the Lions community and encouragement from the coaches that keeps me coming back. Through the philosophy of Coach Paulie and the other instructors I have learned to embrace the journey and be more patient with myself as I try new skills and techniques. I have made awesome new friends in the Women’s Only Classes by partnering and encouraging others as we learn and improve together. From Coach Paulie’s emails/facebook posts, to the instructors, and your partners there is always positivity and encouragement to go for your goals at Lions MMA

Shruti Parikh (competitor):  "I cannot put into words how happy I am at Lions MMA. I have recently moved to Canada from England. Within England I had moved several times too and never found a gym as good as the one I started at first. Four years I was struggling to find a gym that I could really call HOME…until…I walked in to Lions MMA. I had trialed a number of martial arts gyms in Vancouver but this stood out by far. It was clear from the first training session that Lions MMA was the one. Every coach here is highly experienced, giving you careful attention in each class. No matter how big the class, the coaches are able to really identify each individual’s weaknesses and help you build on that. It’s one thing being experienced and another thing being able to convey your knowledge appropriately to a wide range of different skill levels. All coaches here have the unique blend of both and are very down to earth too which creates a warm welcoming atmosphere in the gym. From each coach you can feel their heart is in what they do 100%, you know they care. You can fully trust your coach here which is vital for anyone who is looking to compete. But even if your goal is just fitness, Lions MMA is a great place for that. They offer classes 7 days a week, multiple times a day starting from 7am so for someone who say has varying work hours it gives you a lot of flexibility to fit in multiple sessions a week despite having other commitments. On top of that the location is very convenient with public transport taking you right to the doorstep. If I had to name one thing the gym could improve on…I would have nothing to say. Who would have thought it takes me moving continents to find this jewel of a gym! Thank you Coach Paulie and LIONS MMA Fight Team for welcoming me to your family!
