I started training Jiu Jitsu at BUDO in Feb of 2019 and I haven't looked back since. As a small woman with zero martial arts background, I was definitely very nervous and intimidated my first day on the mats. And my second. Actually I was a nervous ball of anxiety my entire first month. But thanks to the encouragement of the instructors, Professors Anthony and Mike, I kept coming back and before I knew it I realized I'd become part of a family. I recommend BUDO to anyone and everyone who wants to get out of their comfort zone and change their life for the better. More...

I tried a few other local gyms before settling on Budo, but none felt quite as welcoming and beginner friendly as Budo did. Beginner classes focus on repetition of fundamental techniques and the instructors make an obvious effort to remember their students and make corrections as needed. More...

Going to Budo for the past 6 months has been an absolute pleasure! They have a team of very friendly and talented instructors that care about you and your individual growth. This extends to the students as everyone is very helpful and welcoming. In short, they try to make you feel at home from day one.Their teaching style is open and modern. They are willing to experiment and welcome you to discover your own approach to BJJ. You'll see diverse range of styles at this school. Because of that, rolling here has been a blast as each training partner presents a different challenge.Come here if you're looking to get fit, stay sharp and make a bunch of good friends.I'll see you on the mats :) More...

I have nothing but great things to say about Budo MMA. Mike, Anthony & Chris are phenomenal instructors and very passionate about what they do. Also, the students are the same. Experienced guys are friendly and willing to drill with lower level students to help them learn. My overall health (strength, flexibility & weight-loss) has improved as well as my concentration. I highly recommended this location for those people who have the same goals. More...

A wonderful place to train BJJ. Scott, Mike, and Anthony are great instructors, have a great attitude for training, and a clear love of the art. They keeps on top of current trends and "cutting-edge" techniques. The best things about training BJJ here though is the atmosphere. The people who train there are very respectful, fun, and enjoyable to spar with. I highly recommend this place. More...

Tried a trial class two years ago and have been absolutely hooked since! SO much more fun and valuable than a boring old gym (you actually get to learn something! ). The classes are fantastic, the instructors are amazing people, and everybody is always very welcoming and encouraging. Highly recommend checking this place out :-) More...

I joined Budo a year and a half ago and could not have made a better decision. When you join Budo you don't just join a gym, you become part of a family. A family who takes the time and patience with each member to help them grow not only as a martial artist but as a person as well. I recommend joining this gym and becoming part of our Budo Family!

I started training at Budo 2 years ago, after deciding to call it quits at another gym. The comparison here is unreal. Whether you are looking for something serious, or just some guidance to get in shape, they can adapt to your level effortlessly. The instructors are amazing, interested in growing your physical and mental capabilities. They have created a very non-threatening environment attracting incredible students and is just all around a great place to be! More...

At Budo I found the most inclusive and welcoming group of people I've ever met, as well as the most skilled and knowledgeable instructors I could've asked for. I look forward to every class and always leave happier than ever. The individual attention and supportive group dynamic make it possible for every person to succeed and really enjoy themselves. I'm so glad I joined! More...

Over 2 years ago, I was a 51 year old couch potato with zero martial arts or gym experience. My son, 11 at the time, wanted to take MMA classes at Budo. He heard a lot of good things about Budo. We convinced ourselves to go together. I was very anxious prior to our first class. Our first class was a Muay Thai class with Chris. It turned out to be a great experience. Learned lots and had a great workout. We were hooked.We have since attended all the Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu classes.We can honestly say that we have never had a bad experience with any of the classes or instructors.Overcoming our fear and showing up at Budo has been the best decision. It has also been a great father/son bonding experience. Our fitness has improved ten-fold and we have learned a lot about self defense.The instructors are great, the fellow students are very friendly and helpful and the environment is fantastic. Can’t thank Scott and Mike enough for starting up Budo.We highly recommend Budo!!! More...

I walked into Budo MMA in Burnaby back in the latter half of June, 2016 not really knowing what to expect. I was feeling intimidated but ready to take on a martial art. I couldn't honestly be happier with my decision to land into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under the graceful and skillful eye of the head instructor, Scott Boudreau.I'm learning things about myself that I didn't understand or know prior to taking up this martial art. The support of Scott and his two other instructors Michael and Anthony is amazing. The environment of Budo is very welcoming and friendly, but also teaches you how to get down to business and start developing your jiu jitsu, and to not have any fear of the challenges before you.I'm extremely thankful for the support of everyone at Budo to keep me going and keep learning and developing this new passion of mine. Scott, Michael and Anthony are doing a wonderful job in teaching BJJ at this location in Burnaby. Oss!!! More...

This is an awesome place to learn, get fit and have fun doing it. The staff are always friendly and smiling. The people who come for classes are all very nice and make you feel welcome whether it's your first visit or you are a regular. Chris's class is always interesting and he is great at keeping the challenges coming, he motivates you to push yourself harder each time and smile while you're doing it. Come get your sweat on, learn something new, you'll be happy you did. More...

I've been going to BUDO Burnaby for about a month now and I take their jiu-jitsu and Kickboxing classes. My first day there I was very welcomed by the staff and there were no egos, just a bunch of people trying to get better. The gym has the best combination of people, and instruction around. The instructors are second to none, all top notch. The instructors do a great job of teaching that anyone no matter what level their skill level will understand and be able to follow alongVery happy with this gym and the price is extremely reasonable!

Our son does jiu jitsu, karate & kick boxing at the Burnaby location with Chris. It's helped his self confidence so much! Chris is absolutely wonderful with all the kids while maintaining order & teaching respect . Our son really looks up to him. All instructors at both locations teach using very hands on methods. I would recommend Budo to anyone in the Vancouver or Burnaby area! More...

The owners and instructors have created a truly welcoming and safe environment. There's no brutes or douchebags here. If you're a small woman or want to drop your son or daughter off for class you will feel right at home. Whether your goal is to get fit, have fun, be a competitor or be an mma fighter Budo is a great place to be. I've been training jiujitsu for 6 years and at Budo for 1, and thoroughly enjoy class.

I can't say enough positive things about this dojo. Jiu-jitsu is an integral part of my life and Budo has become like family to me. Here are some of the many reasons to join Budo:1. Positive environment and cooperative training. Of course sparring is as competitive as you like, but there's a huge focus on techniques and empowerment and keeping the students safe. Egos are left at the door, and the instructors ensure poor attitudes are kept in check.2. Great place for women to train! As a female grappler, I often worry about being treated inappropriately (everything from rude comments to grappling excessively aggressively, or the inverse) and there is NOTHING like that here. A steady crew of women attend classes here, and for good reason.3. Advanced technical instructors who posses a great wealth of knowledge and are eager to share. My experience is specifically with Jiu-jitsu; Scott, Mike, and Anthony are exceptional teachers and grapplers. They are clear in their explanations and provide lots of feedback.Everyone at Budo is friendly and helpful. The best way to know if a gym is a good fit for you is to stop by in person - and I can't recommend this place enough. I will be training here as long as I am in Vancouver. Oss! More...

Learn from great coaches and train alongside respectful teammates. I've trained at various gyms for different martial arts for over 10 years, but my time at BJJ at Budo has been the best experience bar none. The only sad part is that my schedule only allows me to go twice a week at most! More...

Budo is a great place for building character & self confidence, discipline, respect and cardio endurance for both kids and adults. Our two kids (7 & 5) have been training here for the past 2 years now and have gained a lot of self confidence in themselves both physically and emotionally. It's a great place for kids to burn off their energy with great staff.Rosy & Gord Wang More...

My child is 6 & has been training at Budo for the last 2 years. He's been training in both jiujitsu and karate and loves it. Scott is a great sensei --very encouraging and supportive of the kids. The training has really helped to develop my child's self esteem, confidence and discipline in both training and competition. The environment at Budo is one of respect --all the kids are encouraging of one another & he's made many great friends! More...

My 5yr old daughter has been taking karate and BJJ classes at Budo for 8 months now and watching her inspired me to begin my BJJ journey 2 months ago. Scott and the rest of the staff are amazing, patient and extremely knowledgeable in all that they do. The positive changes in my daughter on and off the mats has been amazing to see and even I am beginning to see a glimmer of my pre 40's body coming back. Where else can you roll with Champions on a daily basis? They are Champions on and off the mats, everyone from the instructors down to the kids. I have never met a more honest, welcoming, kind, patient and honourable group of people in my life and I count myself and my daughter lucky that we found Budo. Whatever your martial arts goal may be I am confident that you can reach it at Budo. More...

The instructors here are very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. They take the time to help out each student, which is great because I can have a bad short term memory at times and forget what I just saw them teach the class a minute before. Everyone I've met at budo has been super friendly and I've never had any bad experiences. More...

I started training at Budo MMA May 7th 2013 in the art of Brazilian jiu jitsu. I was nothing more than a small fifteen year old kid with self-confidence issues, however this quickly changed. After my first class I was hooked and welcomed to the club with open arms. For me Budo isn't simply just a dojo. It's my second family. Without the guidance of the jiu jitsu instructions Scott, Mike and Anthony and the rest of the amazing members at Budo I would not be where I am today with my jiu jitsu as well as my personality ! I highly recommend Budo to anyone thinking about starting martial arts or even high level competitors looking to cross train. everyone is always welcome !! OSU. More...

If you're looking for a great mixed martial arts workout without sass or attitude, check out this locally owned studio. I take the Muay Thai kickboxing classes but Budo also offers Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Kyokushin Karate, X-fit conditioning classes for fighters and a variety of kids classes. The studio owners and instructors are all trained in and are practitioners of their respective disciplines, so they pay attention to and help you correct your technique. The skill set in the kickboxing classes range from newbies to trained fighters, so it's not intimidating if you want to try it out for the first time nor is it too boring if you're a trained fighter.I've definitely noticed an increase in my confidence and my fitness levels. But above all, the instructors and fellow students have made me feel more badass, which speaks loads about how much fun you have training here. More...

Budo Mixed Martial Arts has been my first experience with martial arts, and I can say confidently that I couldn't have picked a better facility. I joined the gym to lose weight, and gain experience in kickboxing, and Budo has helped me meet, then surpass my expectations! For five months I have been attending the Muay Thai and Budo X-Fit classes, and I have lost 20 pounds, and feel incredibly confident with my kickboxing.The instructors are what make this place what it is. Scott, Mike, Chris, Anthony, Laszlo, and Jenny are all exceptional instructors, and their classes are fun and welcoming while still challenging. Beginners and experienced students alike all manage to get the training they need at Budo. This is a seriously fun place to train at, and well worth checking out! More...

If you want a good work and want to sweat! Come to Budo...I've gone twice and the classes are very full but they make it work! Checked out the first class for free and then got the groupon deal. Chris our instructor is very encouraging but would be nice to have a smaller class to ensure proper technique is done. Feel bad since I am shorter than my friend but she is very patient with me but all is all we laugh and sweat a lot in class! Check it out! More...

Let's be honest, for people who are looking to start a martial arts program, whether in kickboxing or jiujitsu, intimidation is always a factor. People don't want to join a gym where they feel intimated. At Budo Mixed Martial Arts, this feeling does not exist. Everyone at the gym are extremely nice and welcoming. The instructors are very motivating and helpful to those that are just starting out. For people who are more experience, they know how to push to make you better. The students at the gym are amazing as well and everyone is unique and have different levels of experience. There are students that have been training their whole lives and others that are just starting out. There is a strong sense of camaraderie between the students and classes always has a fair share of laughs and smiles. The bottom line is that Budo MMA is an amazing place to train, get in shape and make some friends. More...

Scott, can't believe its been almost a year our boys (and girl) have been training with you!!! All our kids enjoy your MMA training! !!. The environment that you have created is very welcoming and nurturing and in the world of martial arts, very non threatening. Watching our kids, I can see growth in their attitudes and their abilities. This is truly a nice change from other schools where the focus is on belts and achieving "levels". I believe our kids have learned real life skills that will help them as they grow and develop. .Thanks for all you have done and we certainly will be seeing you in our weekly classes. Once again, thanks for teaching our kids!!! More...

After a year and a half of doing anything, I usually get bored. But I haven't yet at Budo because they keep things fresh. Between Scott, Mike, and Chris, the kickboxing class stays fun, fresh, and full of surprises . As always, the atmosphere is fun and casual, yet intense. Whether you just want a great workout or you want to prepare for a tournament in Karate, Kickboxing, or Brazilian Ju Jitsu, Budo is the place for you to achieve your goals and have a good time while doing it.

I can proudly say that ever since I have joined Budo, I have never regretted it one bit. Doing the kick boxing and x-fit classes have given me more confidence and self-worth. Being able to commit and see yourself improve over time has motivated me to try new things and live a healthy lifestyle. I felt very welcomed since the first time I attended classes at Budo, the instructors were very humble and friendly. Knowing that the instructors are credible and extremely experience give me ease of mind that I am in good hands. Kick boxing is very fun and I highly recommend everyone to try at Budo! More...

I joined Budo a year ago this month, and the experience I have had thus far has been amazing. The students and staff were very welcoming. Scott a well rounded mixed martial artist in Karate/Ju Jitsu/Muay Thai Kick Boxing and more has been mentoring me since day one, providing me with his expertise advice, and because of it my skills develop more and more with every training session I attend. He is a great instructor and very caring for his students. If you are looking to get into training to compete or just looking to add an effective exercise routine to your schedule and learning great self defense, Budo is the gym to join.

I've trained martial arts at many different gyms around the lower mainland. I found that Budo had everything I wanted in a martial arts gym, excellent instructors, great class selection, and a very friendly atmosphere. Mike and Scott are extremely knowledgable in martial arts and pass their knowledge onto the students very effectively. Classes are run perfect. I found some martial arts gyms have "meat heads" attending, with Budo, all the students are all very friendly and willing to help. I recommend Budo to every skill level and ability. More...
