contemplating a move...
Found Universal MMA which seems bloody expensive.
And a Gracie Barra School
both in Vancouver.
There is Dynamic also. There are a lot of good places out here honestly, revolution is another good one. It's expensive, because it is literally expensive to live out here, property is stupid expensive, god damn olympics. Moved out here from Kingston, ON
Trained at Franco Kickboxing for a few years... it was awesome. But yeah, not cheap.
What's rent like in/around the Vancouver/Victoria area?
dont do it man
come to toronto instead
Women are average looking, but fucking BITCHY.
Regardless what anyone says, last 5 years weather has been HORRIBLE.
On the plus. City is beautiful
Some OK places to go out.
Close to the Okanagan where the real party and girls are at.
And there is quite a few places to train, all quite expensive for what you get. But in Vancouver you pay world class prices to live in a not quite yet world class city.
dynamic mma, let me know before you come, i'll see if i can ask adam (owner) to hook u up with the $100 price.
Dynamic now has Todd Smith teaching bjj. He left Universal cuz he wasn't happy there. Universal has a blue belt running bjj now.
Depends on what your looking for : basement, full house, apartment, townhouse. All in all rent is expensive as FUCK. To get a good idea check out craigslist vancouver
none of them are so bad if you make full use of the facilities- ANd it helps if your sign up for a long time like a year....
also depends on what you want to do... i go to universal and they have classes literally all day everyday.
the place which you want to go really should depend on where you end up moving though. Pm me later and i can help you out with more info about places to live/ train.
FUCK the T.O.
vancouver girls are OK looking? where the hell you been bro, there are hotties of all ethnicities all over the place..... every time i meet people from outta town they always comment on how many hotties there are in this city.
But i do agree most of them are fucking arrogant bitchy big headed bitches.
move away from van like i did bro, and you will quickly change your mind. How is this not a world class city; it has been in the top 3 places to live in the world according to the U.N something like 5 years running......
WTF ???? todd left ??? who the fuck is teaching BJJ now then ?? god damn this must just of happened.
Yeah, Todd left last week...Ahmed took over for him. He's a purple belt and has been teaching all of the BJJ classes out in Richmond.
Not too concerned about what the girls look like, the GF will be making the move as well.
Her work has an office in Victoria, so looks like we would probably be in that area.
Would need a house/townhouse. Something with access to a yard for the dog.
ahmed ?? and i thought richmond spot was MT only ?? so who is going to teach BJJ out in richmond then ?
victoria = NOT vancouver i just came back from there today though, went there for few days to visit friend of mine. Ok place.
Getting kind of excited to do this. Hopefully it is attainable. Will have to see what the situation is like when I finish school.
If we don't do it this year, then I'm going to work my ass off so we can next year.
really I thought they were synonyms of each other
so you will be moving to victoria, not vancouver ?
If the answer is yes, then disregard my attempt to help you via PM
Victoria is a 1 HR 45min ferry and about 1 HR driving away from vancouver.
