Went to Tristar Vancouver for couple sessions looking to sharpen my skill sets in Kickboxing/striking. The classes are well organized where the coach breaks down complex moves to simple steps that's easy to learn. The class consist of functional conditioning, bagwork and light sparring that enables us to tryout things in a friendly setting.
I've been to other gyms and as far as I can tell, coaches there are attention to detail and highly motivational. Loved the superb friendly atmosphere, location and environment. Definitely recommend it if you are looking to learn about combat sports or to improve overall fitness.
If you are interested in martial art come to this place, been going to many gyms but this one is amazing and I highly recommend it for every level. Very humble coaches and high level students. Over all for all the programs that they offer, they are number one 👆. Being able to train and roll with Kajan is different thing tho, 2 months in feels like I know them for ages and learned so many things specially Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Just give it a shot
Awesome for Kickboxing, Ju-jitsu, Wrestling, grappling and striking
My little nephew was a very timid and shy kid before he took his first class at Tristar. Months went in and he fell in love with the training and all the fun he was having . He’s been more vibrant and more confident then when he started and He can’t say enough good things about Kajan and the rest of the team
My son loves training here. We tried it out as something different from his regular martial arts classes and it was just what he was looking for. Due to scheduling conflicts, we have to delay our training, but we are definately going to come back to Tristar. They have many classes and their prices are more than fair for what they offer. Highly recommend this place.
A welcome environment for all skill levels. Whatever your training goals, the coaching team at Tristar will inspire and motivate you. Daytime and evening classes to fit any schedule. Great children and youth programs as well!
I have trained at several martial arts gyms over the years and Tristar Vancouver is easily the best one. My skills have grown immensely and you progress at a fast pace due to the top notch training from coach Kajan and the rest of the team. Super welcoming, friendly and professional gym.
Went there for a few classes, the place was clean and had a good environment. The coach that was there actually work with u like one on one, helping u on the techniques step by step until u perform it right. Will go there more in the future.
Awesome place to train at, awesome people to train with. High level instructors with professional martial arts knowledge always find a way to help you improve. Good atmosphere as well.
Been training here for over two years. Kajan is an amazing coach who really cares about his students. The gym has a wide variety of students from beginners to amateur and pro fighters. Very friendly vibe with everyone trying to get better together
Great place to learn martial arts from high level martial artist, whether you are a beginner or pro athlete.
Highly recommend the jiu jujitsu class taught by black belt Kajan Johnson.
Great atmosphere for fighters or enthusiasts or people new to the sport. Also I know for a fact these guys are on the cutting edge of training having so much experience in one place!
My 6 year old has been training in the kids martial arts at Tristar for a year and has gained so many valuable skills in Jiu Jitsu, wrestling, discipline and focus. Coaches Kajan, ‘Princess’ Jasmine and the entire Tristar family are passionate and dedicated to teaching. My 4 year old daughter has joined the Tiny Tristars and has found her strength and confidence. 5 Stars for Tristar!!
My journey with Tristar Vancouver started a few years ago and ever since I walked in, I knew it was the right place for me.
The diversity and consistency of classes are next level, encompassing all the disciplines of Kickboxing, Boxing, Jiujitsu, Wrestling, as well as MMA. Kajan Johnson does an amazing job at structurally as well as functionally breaking down any type of movement and the philosophy behind it, allowing for a complete understanding of each move whether you’re there recreationally or competitively.
Tristar’s family vibe has also done wonders for my life, I’m blessed and grateful to be part of such an amazing team that genuinely cares about each other’s successes as much as their own. I’m surrounded by amazing positive energy all the time and it’s life-changing!

Kajan Johnson is a very intelligent and caring head coach who helped me overcome a lot of insecurities and gave me confidence. He showed me the ability I have in martial arts within myself, and the team at tristar vancouver alongside Kajan and Rochelle are almost single handedly responsible for my maturity as an adult. Can’t thank them enough.
Best coaching in the lower mainland. I have been training here for 2 years and have leveled up in my jiu jitsu and striking. Kajan johnson has the best instructions to offer in MMA.
Really good coaching from kajan Johnson who is a black belt in Jiu Jitsu under Firas zahabi. The gym is a very welcoming place to be at being surrounded by hard workers and good people
Came for a boxing class and was absolutely phenomenal! Learned new grappling and wrestling moves. The instructor was extremely professional and detailed! Coming from a wrestling and taekwondo background, I definitely learned new skills and perspective. Will definitely join the wrestling and grappling classes!
Great training! I've learned so much from Kajan and the other coaches at Tristar. Classes are fun and everyone is so welcoming. Highly recommend!!
Great place to train kickboxing and grappling. Instructors good at both fighting and teaching. Kajan is the real deal. This is a branch of the gym that trained George St. Pierre. Students are great and a sizeable percentage have amateur or pro fights coming up. Still very friendly to the newcomer, more of a wise martial arts vibe than a thug vibe. Intro deal is great value too, $20 for a weeks classes? Nuts.
Love this gym and how tae kwon do, boxing, kickboxing are incorporated in the training. Will join the Jiu jitsu and wrestling classes in the future.
Tristar is a great environment to train. They have very friendly and knowledgeable instructors that run engaging classes in boxing, wrestling, kickboxing and No Gi Jiu Jitsu. They have a great kids martial arts program and even have a Women's only program! No matter your age, gender or experience levels, these guys have you covered!
The best MMA gym I've been to, period. Coach Kajan does an excellent job with his instruction and expertise in all aspects of Mixed Martial Arts, as well as Self-Defense. Tristar Vancouver takes you in right away and makes you part of thier tribe, and they have a proven formula and winning track record with elite and successful fighters at professional, amateur, & recreational levels of the sport.
Tristar Vancouver is the place to be!
I was a member at Tristar Vancouver for two years and this is by far the best MMA gym I have ever stepped foot in, and I have been to a lot of other well known gyms.
Kajan as a person is warm, intelligent, fun and genuinely cares about his students. He is skilled enough to teach you pretty much any aspect of MMA and patient enough to go over a move with you until you get it right.
The other people in the gym are friendly and welcoming. As an absolute beginner, I never felt nervous (lol ok, maybe the first couple of classes) because everyone was just so nice. Two thumbs up for Tristar Vancouver!
Three years and counting of consistent world class training as well as essential life skills from a professional athlete/coach that is even more of an accomplished role model than fighter.
I have been training kickboxing at Tristar Vancouver and it has been great. Trained at a few places before but love Tristar emphasis on good technique. Will be joining the jiu jitsu and wrestling classes as well in the future.
If you are interested in martial art come to this place, been going to many gyms but this one is amazing and I highly recommend it for every level. Very humble coaches and high level students.
