Our DEMA BJJ open house is off to a fantastic start. People with no experience, some experience or even those with experience are getting a taste of the DEMA way. No one announces local combative sports promotions better then Adam Gould. We were honoured to have him as part of our DEMA BJJ Open House for the month of April. It was a privilege in watching his eagerness to learn the basics and grasping the finer points of ground play (with our competition team members). Thanks for your participation tonight Adam and welcome to the DEMA family.

DEMA Black Belts Dan Hare and Joshua Regan bring a combined twenty years of adult training and teaching experience to all of our members. To ‘empty the cup’ (instructing) one must first have ‘filled the cup’ (learning). These two have brought their life experiences, diligence in training and most importantly, their dedication to the Dragon’s Den over all these years, in helping all of our DEMA members strive for their own personal successes.

Our team of passionate instructors (for whom we are so grateful) is the most important reason for our continued growth and success. The Den is honoured to have such a committed group of individuals. Celebrating our 28th year of award winning instruction and thanking,

DEMA in partnership with our sister program Doce Pares International (Canada) is hard at work developing the Doce Pares brand as Canada’s premier filipino (and indonesian) based blade, stick and environmental weapons based facility. DEMA has been instructing fifth range methods since its inception. For almost thirty years we have always believed that you cannot defend against something from which you do not understand. Being a complete practitioner in the ways of ‘defensive combatives’ requires proficiency and knowledge of ‘tools’ that enhance your ‘empty handed’ training methods. As a way of keeping our DEMA members in’full range’ mode we invite you to like our new facebook page at,

Doce Pares International (Canada)

We are also in development of our very own youtube channel (slated for the end of June) as a way in which to provide a resource library to our members (and facebook friends) on fifth range and civilian based tactical defensive methods.

In the meantime as a way in which give our students continued authenticity we are proud to supply them with newly supplied Doce Pares sticks complete with custom laser engravings of both the Doce Pares and our school’s brand logos.

To our members and facebook friends please like our pages and share with your friends. Stay tuned for more news coming soon.

Here’s yet another example of how Dragon’s Den Elite’s sister program Ocean City Boxing has been in the forefront of the pugilistic science these past 23 years. Congratulations to Emily Walker on her hard earned gold medal at the 2018 Boxing Canada National Championships held in Edmonton, Alberta. Starting in our recreational program it only took Emily 18 months to reach the pinnacle of success at the national level.

Many thanks to all of our recreational and competitive members and in particular coach Ben Nishi for your invaluable assistance in preparing Emily for her successful performance at the nationals.

Dragon’s Den Elite’s sister program Ocean City Boxing will continue to strive in bringing the very best boxing instruction to all of our recreational and competitive members. Who knows what future champion lies in our midst. Only time will tell...and we’re up to the challenge in creating yet another one...just like Emily.

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.
