Martial Arts Schedule & Pricing

With the virus on the forefront of everyone’s mind, we are taking extra precautions to make sure that the space remains safe. Surfaces and mats are washed and disinfected after every class and we are following recommended distancing guidelines. To ensure a clean environment, we are using a HEPA filter, diffusing anti-viral and anti-bacterial essential oils and increasing air flow in the dojo by keeping the windows open slightly. We ask you to do your part by remaining home if you are not feeling well.

With every monthly pass, selections can be made from any of the regular martial arts classes. You can stay with a specific discipline or mix & match as you go. The only limitation is the number of classes per week. Any of the monthly passes can be supplemented with additional drop in bookings if desired.

There is no long-term contract. Anyone can change pass options from month-to-month anytime (Ex: from "1 class per week" in one month, to "Unlimited" or any other option the next month and back to "1 class per week" the following month). No requirements, no restrictions.

Wow, where do I start..? I love this place!
You get so much value as a member. The instruction is top notch. You quickly develop real practical skills and are challenged in the best of ways. The community is welcoming, supportive and fun to train with. I'd come everyday if I could.

Highly recommend!

Best place to discover yourself and the world through the warrior arts - inner, outer and beyond.


Don't let the unassuming frontage fool you. Once you enter, it's like Mr Miyagi's dojo inside! The foyer is totally Eastern zen and the expansive dojo has real tatami floors.
The owner and main instructor Jesse Blue is an excellent teacher who instructs JKD, Kali Eskrima and has many male and female students.
Vancouver is lucky to have such a beautiful martial arts school right in the center of the city!

Super grateful to have found the breathwork ceremonies offered at Ancient Fire. The space is beautiful, relaxing and very well-held; the facilitation is both grounded and sacred. Ancient Fire is one of the heart-centred spaces in Vancouver where it’s safe to show up and be raw and open. When I’m there, I feel empowered and supported to work with whatever is coming up. Thank you Amber and Jesse.

AncientFire holds a space of loving strength and integrity that I felt the first time I walked through the doors. I've done breathwork all over the city of Vancouver, and there is something special and unique about doing it here. It is a place of gentle giants that allows me to release into deep and timeless places. Love me some AncientFire!!!

Curtis Friesen

Top notch instructors who are not just experts in their arts but also can teach well. I've studied martial arts for 20 years and there aren't very many clubs that I can recommend. This club is by far the best. The owner, Jesse is extremely knowledgeable but very nice and humble.

M Louie

One of the best martial arts studio around. A very Zen place where the teacher helps you learn and evolve in martial arts and self development. Many disciplines available at a fair price.

Yan Emond

Wonderful place to train and seriously one of the most beautiful spaces I've ever been to. Great instruction and good people. Technical details are explained very, very well. I feel challenged every time I train here. I definitely recommend it!

Stu Cooke

Positive energy. Humility and respect.

Louie Lindo

The moment you step foot into Ancient fire, it's like you're taken to another world. Definitely the most beautiful dojo I've been to in Vancouver, with the friendliest, most approachable and knowledgeable teachers around. Thank you Jesse for putting so much love and care into this place, you can feel it when you step in!

I love this place. It's a beautiful environment to train in, and everyone is very friendly and welcoming. I recommend it to anyone wanting to train martial arts.

Mario Loubert

I am relatively new to breath work and have been looking for a place to go in Vancouver. My wife and I attended several ceremonies at Ancient Fire. They provided a very safe and sacred environment for us to have an amazing experience. So much so, that we introduced 7 of our friends. I highly recommend Amber, Jesse and Krystal.

Many thanks and Love,

Bruce and Nancy

Absolutely love this place! Amber & her team are amazing! Great energy in this space. Highly recommend.

Joanna Banka

Gorgeous Sacred Space in the city - feels like this place is in its own sanctuary, you forget you are in the city. Amazing people and wonderful workshops on offer in a comfortable safe and open environment. I loved my Cacao ceremony.

Hayley Rose Kershaw

Beautiful secret safe space with amazing people who motivate and encourage you to be your best everyday.

I have trained in many different arts, but this is some of the best instruction I have seen. Very practical, humble instruction.

Derek Mcbruce

Awesome spot and definitely recommend for anyone looking to progress or discover different art forms.

Jay Bell

Great space, great instruction - highly recommend it!

Jessica Lynn

Beautiful space, very zen, amazing bamboo tatami, nice couches to relax on before or after class. So much to learn from martial arts externally or breathwork for the internal!

Serge Basi

The list of top-level and senior instructors here is extensive. The variety of arts and skills taught is fantastic! Jesse is outstanding as a teacher in the martial arts, health and personal development - dedicated, patient and highly experienced. There are many aspects of the martial arts that apply in all areas of life and AncientFire offers them all. There is so much more to learn here than I could have imagined.
