Welcome to Dragon’s Den Elite Combat Sports and Self Defense

Creating A Safe Space For You And Your Family During Covid-19

Dragon’s Den Elite Combat Sports has the safety of you and your family in mind when it comes to participating with us. We have placed signage in strategic places to remind everyone of the social responsibility we all share towards one another.

We practice in a safe training environment including, limited class sizes in keeping a safe distance from others with the recommended 6′ social distancing guideline, providing adequate disinfecting agents to clean hands often and disinfect frequently touched surfaces in the facility, posting reminder signs about not touching your eyes, nose or mouth while training and even providing our members to purchase custom training masks should they choose to train with them as additional safety. We have a procedural requirement for all members prior to entering our safe space and NO MEMBER or PERSON will be allowed to gain access if they have symptoms that may put our healthy members at risk. We are doing everything we can to give you and your family the confidence to participate with us in a clean, socially responsible safe space for fun, fitness and continued learning on some of the best martial and combative sport programs in the area.

Since the beginning Dragon’s Den Elite has endeavoured to provide the very best of personal, family and occupational self protection strategies to its many members. Back then we were inclined to provide a traditional method that most would have considered a facility in which to acquire such skills. But with the changing times and to better reflect the modern concepts of what we have offered for three decades our new name, Dragon’s Den Elite Combat Sports and Self Defense will acknowledge that. Your best choice for practical self protection, fitness and inspiring confidence will always remain, only the name has changed. 



DEMA Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program

Dragon's Den Elite has been instructing jiu jitsu methods since the mid 1990's largely under the sport jiu jitsu and nogi (mma) strategies. With the many successes of our jiu jitsu method for self defense and sport related training we continue to evolve our ground...

To our valued Dragon’s Den Elite family,


Dr. Bonnie stated today that the government was unable to figure out the guidelines for Martial Arts to re-open this coming Monday. ☹️ Maybe it would have been a prudent for her to have seen how we’ve done our safety protocols since June. As a result she has shut us down for yet another week. 🤬 She stated that we have a number of good plans in place (submitted by businesses over the past few weeks). But to be safe based on the numbers announced today, we need to stay closed for another week while they develop current guidelines for us (and everyone else) to re-open. We are so sorry to everyone that look forward to the classes and programs we provide. If the closure goes beyond the next week we are working on a contingency (albeit a limited one). This next week will be used to develop the contingency plan in the likelihood the closure goes beyond what the government has ordered. Stay tuned.

Effective Tuesday November 24th,2020.
💥 💥 💥

To our valued Martial arts family. We have been forced by the Provincial government and Fraser health to suspend all operations at Dragon’s Den Elite Combat Sports. The reason is because the government thus far has been unable to develop protocols for everyone to follow. This is NOT a health related closure. In my communications with Fraser Health, other instructors and with our legal team, I have been told that there is mass confusion for covid safety fitness and return to sport protocols and that it is being worked on as we speak. The earliest we could be back in providing what we’ve been doing since June (for covid safety) is thursday and if not we will inform you of an approximate date. Any further news or updates will be emailed and posted on facebook, our website or instagram social media platforms. We are doing everything we can to stay open but it’s not for lack of trying. The protocols the government will put in place will probably be less then what we have now. We are ready to go as soon as the provincial health authorities figure things out. Please watch for further updates either on cable or social media and let us know if there is something that can assist us (in case we’ve missed it.) We are so grateful for your continued support and patience while we (yet again) go through another round of closures.

✅ The Time Has Come Yet Again! ✅

New restrictions have come down from the Provincial Health Office 😷 and Dragon’s Den Elite Combat Sports is quickly adapting to the changes in order to keep our members and our community safe. We have always led by example from an earlier initial closure back in March to mandatory masks during indoor training sessions in June. Based on thursday afternoon's announcement, martial arts clubs are able to stay open
but must obey the new rules currently set in place. Below are the new restrictions put forth by the province, 👍

• Indoor sports can continue but everyone MUST maintain physical distance.
• Masks MUST be worn when entering, training and leaving the facility
• Athletes can shadow box, skip, hit the bag and train solo ground drills within designated “training pads” but cannot participate in high intensity interval training.
• No spectators are allowed at any times
• There is absolutely NO sparring or focus mitt work allowed during this phase of sport combatives. 🥊

•All classes and programs will resume at their regular times as of Tuesday, November 24th‼️

I am pleased that we are able to adhere to the above mentioned rules in order to keep our facility operational and our athletes can continue with their technical and knowledge based training.

Dragon’s Den Elite isn’t just some place where we kick, punch and roll around with each other. The real value of our facility (for all of our team) is that we help support physical and mental health for the community at large. It’s always been part of our identity since the first day we opened our doors in 1990. It’s an extension of our family, livelihood and personal character. Facilities like ours (and many like us) are teaching others in our community how to improve their lives, their health and in helping to create more caring, responsible and selfless individuals. We are a very tight knit group (like family) who support each other through thick and thin inside and outside of the gym walls. We have each others back and have created our own culture and it’s a large reason why Dragon’s Den Elite has been so successful over the past three decades. We will do everything we can to keep it that way. We are in this together and we can’t thank our team and recreational members enough. To all of you continued love, respect and appreciation. 🙏

Thanks again to our members in being patient and understanding during these most difficult of times (for individuals and businesses alike). It is with the utmost importance that we all maintain covid protocols not only during your sessions with us but even more so within your personal and family cohorts.

Train Safe. Be Safe. Think Of Others. 🙏

Boxing is great for developing a strong core, great cardio, strong legs, and good overall muscle co-ordination. Many students come to develop their striking abilities for self-defense, yet others are more interested in the fitness and weight loss benefits that ‘the sweet science’ has to offer.

Muay Thai - Kickboxing

Easy to learn for beginners, Muay Thai Kickboxing is a total body and cardio workout that develops kicks, punches, knees, and elbows into an efficient striking system. It is the ultimate style to develop self-defence skills and confidence, while also inducing healthy weight loss and fitness.

NO-Gi Jiu Jitsu

A complete self-defense system and fitness program, No Gi Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport, martial art, and self-defense system that focuses on ground fighting. The objective is to neutralize and control a much larger opponent with leverage and technique, rather than strength.
