West Vancouver Martial Arts academy (WVMA) is a full time martial arts club.
Founded by brothers, Master Blake Lirette, Senseis Dean Lirette, and Curtis Harriott. WVMA is much more than a fitness gym; it’s a place where our members reach their physical and mental goals one class at a time.
Starting from white belt students will strengthen their mind, develop a solid technical foundation and, by being diligent, achieve their black belt and beyond.
Each student is required to learn specific techniques: stances, defense, moving, and striking. All classes include stretching, technique practice, and conditioning. Martial arts training strengthens core muscles and will keep students lean, flexible, and strong! Martial arts will increase students’ overall fitness level and sense of well being.
With consistent practice, students will, without a doubt:
- strengthen their mind
- improve their physique
- learn effective self-defense
- increase their flexibility
- increase their balance
- increase their coordination
- increase their self-discipline
- meet great people
- enjoy a positive learning environment
