Meet Blake Lirette
Owner at West Vancouver Martial Arts in West Vancouver, BC

Head Instructor

Blake Lirette has been teaching martial arts for over 25 years. During this time, he has enthusiastically helped change the lives of 1000s of people aged 3-70!

In 2010, he opened the doors of WVMA, allowing him to share the wealth of knowledge, training, competing and teaching he’s acquired over the years.

Blake has been training in the martial arts since he was six years old. He began his training in kickboxing but, as a lifelong student of the martial arts, he has also enjoyed training Traditional Muay Thai, Kyokushin Karate, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, along with other various styles.

Blake has trained and competed all over the world including Canada, U.S.A, Thailand & Japan and even competed in the K1 organization at one point. He has held many kickboxing titles in his days as a competitor including BC, Canadian, North American and World titles.

Blake has now shifted his focus to training the next generation of martial artists already building a strong stable of young champions and future leaders. He has always valued the teachings of martial arts and the benefits they have provided him in his life and feels it is his life’s purpose to share these valuable gifts with the world.

Not only do Blake’s students benefit from martial arts training, but he’s also been inspired to create an outreach program through WVMA to help reach at-risk youth, inspire them and promote positive change in their lives, as well.

“Since I was 6 years old, I’ve been captivated by martial arts. Over the years, I’ve received so many gifts in the form of positive friendships, inspiration, physical fitness and understanding of how my own mind, body, and spirit truly work as one. It has become my life’s purpose to share these gifts with others.” – Blake Lirette
