    That depends where in BC. Marcus Soares has schools in Vancouver, he has a satellight school out in Kelowna (where I train), and I think he has another satelight school in Victoria.

    one of Marus Soares's former students has a small club in Kamloops as well. He's very techincal, and actually a really good teacher. They have just a few fighters competing, but the attitude in the gym is really good. The instructor, Troy, does a good job of teaching techinque and of thinking about the whole grappling game. The mats at his gym are sweet too, and he's got a few heavy bags and some thai pads. There's another gym in Kamloops as well, but their mats suck and the attitude is kind of cheezy. Their instructor is really nice though, he's a BJJ guy.

    by the way, BC is a really big place, might want to be more specific. Also, Evolution Gym in Vernon as dorm beds so you can live at the gym and train full-time. They have a cage and everything there.
