MMA in the Vancouver area questions

I've been training for a while now, and thoroughly enjoying it. I am getting world class bjj training, but the muay thai and boxing out of my club are sub par to say the least. I'm looking to find a highly respected muay thai/boxing club in the Vancouver or Fraser Valley area. Anyone have any good experiences?

I'm under the impression that most elite camps are pretty rounded in how they train MMA athletes.

I know that Bibiano Fernandes trains in the lower mainland. You should look into where his camp is.

Dynamic MMA in Richmond run by Adam Ryan I found to be pretty well rounded, and they often have guest trainers in (often including crazy pro MT fighters)

Revolution in Langley. Bibiano, Denis Kang, etc. I don't know who is currently training there but I have had lots of friends and family train and work there.

Also by all accounts Bibiano is a great dude, but there are plenty of other questionable characters who frequent the place. Gang involvement, etc.

Yeah, I've been to revolution, didn't like it. They have tried to clean up and become far more family oriented, but it's still a shady scene from what I know.

And Bibiano dumped Revolution, and now trains out of some gym in Washington.

Never been there, but I'll check it out. Thanks.

Interesting... I wonder what camp he's in there. Maybe with Matt Hume?
