When I came to Vancouver for a holiday, I wanted to find a gym that taught authentic Muay Thai. Sal's the real deal, he really knows what he's doing, why he's doing it, and it shows in the detail of his instruction and care for his students. Everyone is friendly there and willing to help each other out. I thoroughly recommend it.
This facility is un-real. You truly have to see it to believe it. I happily drive up to 50 mins in rush hour traffic to train here. The facility is top notch with new, state of the art equipment. All of the trainers/coaches are highly professional and will help you up your game. The trainers/coaches are real, they don't sit on the side and dictate what to do. All the trainers/coaches have trained with the best and are constantly developing and improving their game plans to pass onto the students. They live the lifestyle and know first hand the blood, sweat and tears that it takes to become a champion, lose the weight, build confidence or just have a great time. I have been training under Sal Ram for over 4 years and have enjoyed every moment. Sal and his family have created a positive environment where everyone is willing to help you. They work next to you and with you until you understand the concepts.
I started training at Clinch back in 2011 and I have nothing but great things to say in the 3.5 years that I have been training there. Sal and the coaching staff are top notch and care about teaching everyone that walks through the doors. They help individualize each of our styles to use our strengths, improve on our weaknesses and to make us continuously better ourselves. Clinch has also created a positive ego-less family like atmosphere for all the students to learn and feed of each other, instead of just beating each other up. Even the pro fighters go out of there way to give everyone pointers The new facility in PoCo is top notch and created more space for training as the student base outgrew the old location. If you are looking for a gym to help challenge yourself and have fun in the process, then this is the place to go.

If you're looking for expert martial arts instruction in a state of the art facility, taught by individuals who truly live and love the martial arts lifestyle, look no further. When I first entered the doors of Clinch back in Fall of '09 I didn't know what to expect, I just wanted to learn some Muay Thai. I left with more then I could have ever imagined. Looking back this was one of the greatest decisions I've made in my life so far. The learning environment is very welcoming and not intimidating, and the instructors truly care about each individual student and their martial arts progression. Don't delay your martial arts journey any longer, start today.
I’ve had the opportunity to train various martial art disciplines at several of the local schools. Clinch’s Muay Thai classes arc by far the most challenging and most technical, allowing their students to not only accelerate faster, but have a better understanding and grasp of what they arc learning.
MMA saved me. I joined Clinch at the end of '09, after barely graduating HS and have a very reckless and careless abolosecants that had left me homeless at one point. I had the choice once leaving HS to either turn over a new leaf, or continue down the path that I had been travelling which appeared to only bring more hardship. I joined Clinch and I felt as if I were part of a bigger picture, working towards a greater goal and have never looked back. Sal, Joe, and Sina are all fantastic intructors who will help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be, then surpass them. My health in all aspects of my life has improved ten fold, and within a year I had travelled to our affiliate school "Sangmorakot" to train. Clinch MMA is more then a gym, it's a family.
I've been training Brazilian Jujitsu and Muay Thai with Clinch for over a year now. I used to just go to a "regular" gym to train weights and do cardio, but I'm glad I switched to Clinch. The coaching is top notch and the workout is second to none. I've been able to improve my functional strength, flexibility, and cardio, all while learning technical martial arts skills. I look forward to each and every training session as Clinch is a home away from home. – Gursh Johal
