How do you know that I will deliver what I promise?

Hi, my name is Don Whitefield. I founded West Coast Martial Arts in 2004 with the goal to open up realistic Martial Arts like Muay Thai Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to all Canadians. You see, back then all the gyms I trained at were tough and the mood was very serious. Like in old-style boxing gyms you did not go there to have fun but to learn how to fight.

I loved the Martial Arts but could not understand why so many students were so aggressive and why the coaches were so unorganized. I realized that the coaches are setting the tone in the gyms with their behaviors and the owner’s first priority was to create fighters not to create a safe training environment.

This and the fact that BJJ and MMA schools to this day do not check the background of their students allowing criminals, drug, steroid users and other people that should not be taught how to fight into their club made me promise myself to do better if I ever open my own school.




    So, when I founded West Coast Martial Arts I surrounded myself with positive, well adjusted people and I started organizing every detail of my business with the result that we are all having a great time training together ever since. Every new student can tell you what a supportive learning environment we have and every experienced student will tell you that training with West Coast is way more fun than training with any of the other teams!

    Because of this, we have become one most successful schools on the West Coast.

    Now, you’re probably wondering how and why we can do all those things?

    Let me explain how I organized every detail at West Coast Martial Arts:

    I used to work out in a gym and played team sports but eventually, I got tired of doing the same exercises over and over and chasing after a ball. I started training in Martial Arts when I was nine years old and since I moved to Canada from Germany I spend years training with the best fighters in the world. I traveled all over North America as part of my corporate job teaching adult automotive dealership personal learning how to teach systematically and getting my college teaching diploma.

    Whenever I traveled I trained at the local schools. I trained in huge schools with so-so instructions and I trained in small places with outstanding instructions. I saw schools where students would be taught very well and others where lots of students got injured because the training atmosphere was too competitive and the techniques taught were too one-dimensional and unorganized.


    I learned that it takes a great school atmosphere and a professionally designed curriculum to learn complex Martial Arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing fast. It simply does not matter how many techniques the instructor knows or what an awesome fighter he is. It takes well-trained instructors that teach well-designed classes knowing how to push you to your limits without getting you injured. I created West Coast Martial Arts to allow everyone who wants to learn these Martial Arts to get in great shape quickly and to find a new lifestyle!

    “I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team. Today I am snowboarding at Hemlock Valley. This is something I used to do before I got old and out of shape. Today I am able to really enjoy myself and even show off a bit thanks to this last year of training at West Coast Martial Arts!”

    ``I would have never imagine myself to drop over 60 pounds! I have never been in better shape and now have confidence in myself. Before joining West Coast Martial Arts I hated to work out, but that has all changed! I love the fact that the instructors at the gym make the classes feel fun, while I am having a hard work out!”

    Ella Bak


    ” I think part of the reason why I left my previous gym was that I felt I wasn’t improving whether it was in BJJ or Kickboxing. Here at West Coast Martial Arts I am happy because I get to learn more than I had expected since everyone is focused. I get lots of support from the instructors and they want me to get better. That’s what I am looking for in a gym and that’s why I am glad I joined West Coast Martial Arts.”

    Anders Lau

    24 Years old – Burnaby

    I walked into West Coast Martial Arts through a Daily Deal offering 30 days of unlimited training. Upon my arrival, I was warmly greeted by a few senior members who were happy to answer my inquiries and guided me through my very first Brazilian-Jiu-Jitsu class. I was able to learn at my own pace, and everyone was helpful and supportive. It made returning much easier. Needless to say, I’ve passed the year mark as a member of the gym; while I have much to learn, the friendships and instructors make an environment that is both welcoming and encouraging.”

    The school you are considering has to screen all new members to prevent drug addicts,
    steroid users or gang members to join! Without proper screening, you will be sparring with people you would try
    to avoid at all cost if you were to meet them on the street.
    The techniques taught cannot be based on a fixed curriculum. If you are being taught the same techniques year after year then the instructors and the team will not evolve. In today’s world techniques change very fast and your instructor has to be updating his or her skills all the time or you will be left behind.
    The training atmosphere has to be friendly and not too competitive. If you cannot trust your training partner, you cannot try new techniques because you have to be too concerned with staying safe. Simply, if your training partners are going too hard you are guaranteed to get injured!
    The school has to help you evolve as a human being as well as a Martial Artist. We all know many examples of UFC fighters who may be great athletes but proving that they are no Martial Artists with their words and actions. You have to become a Martial Artist inside out in order for it to work!
