Rave Review: Lin Martial Arts is an Amazing Academy
"Lin Martial Arts is an amazing academy. I'm brand new to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and have only been training here for 2 weeks - but I'm already hooked. Not only is Steve Lin an incredible instructor, but he has created a culture of teamwork. I've found all of the more experienced students to be extremely friendly and more than willing to help. I would genuinely recommend these classes to everyone!"
- Justin Tanas, New Student, Markham
Rave Review: I Was Just A Skinny Kid From Markham Who Accepted The Challenge Of A Lifetime And WON!
The Lin Martial Arts TEAM has done amazing things for me in so many ways. It opened my eyes to the actual and realistic aspect of fighting. Everyday you get better just by training and listening to top quality instructors. I've never been apart of anything so effective towards what it promises. If you had told me 2 and a half years ago that I would place Bronze in the BJJ Ontario Open in a weight class higher than what I am, get GOLD at the AbuDhabi Pro North American Wildcard Championships and compete in the Absolutes and win a match against an opponent 40lbs heavier, then I would've probably laughed at you. But the fact of the matter is that I did it! And I owe it all to the abstract thinking and the complex techniques that Steve Lin and the TEAM of Lin Martial Arts teach everyday. If I could do this, so can you! I was just a skinny kid from Markham who accepted the challenge of a lifetime and won, and so can you. What are you waiting for? Your journey for greatness starts here!- Marc Fontaine, GOLD Medalist, AbuDhabi Pro North American Wildcard BJJ Championships
Rave Review: I Trained For Years At Another School Prior ... Lin Martial Arts Is A Far Superior School!
"I am a firm believer that BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is the best martial arts to learn as a female. Not only is it great for self defence purposes, but it’s also a fun way to get in shape. I trained for years at another school prior to discovering Lin Martial Arts and know that Lin Martial Arts is a far superior school! Steve Lin is an amazing instructor - having mastered the techniques of BJJ and the art of teaching BJJ. The students at LMA are welcoming and very helpful which makes it a great learning environment. Brazilian Jiu jitsu has enhanced my life in many ways and I look forward to continuing my journey at Lin Martial Arts!"- Christine La, North York
Rave Review: The Only Regret I Have Is Not Starting At Lin's At The Very Beginning
"I have trained BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) in many different gyms in Canada, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Of all of them, I truly find that Lin's teachings are of the best quality hands down.
BJJ has always been something difficult for me to pick up. I would learn a bunch of different submissions and defenses which is all great, but I had a difficult time to either remember them, or to apply them when I'm rolling.
With Lin's school, in TOTAL honesty, I feel like I've achieved more in 6 classes, than in 6 months with any other school. It's really in the quality of the Lin's teaching that makes his BJJ gym so great compared to many others. He has names that make any series of moves easier to remember, explains all the minor details that help make a submission or defense work, and most importantly, speaks perfect English. =D
The only regret I have is not starting BJJ @ Lin's @ the very beginning.
I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that wants to thoroughly develop their BJJ skills."- Cordon Lam, Markham / North York
Rave Review: This Gym Will Not Only Get You Where You Want ... It Will Get You There AT LEAST TWICE AS FAST!
"Having trained at other gyms before, I can really appreciate what Lin Martial Arts offers to its students. One of its best attributes is its CURRICULUM. With his methodical approach to teaching, Steve has created a SYSTEM that produces waves of top-quality grapplers from white belts to brown belts. This allows for a wide range of training partners differing in experience and styles. Lin Martial Arts made my training so efficient, that I was able to achieve great results during competition. I placed first in the 2009 Joslin's Tournament Advanced Division, while being the smallest competitor and studying full-time and working part-time. This gym will not only get you to where you want to be ... it will get you there at least twice as fast!"- Marc Alan Jhingran, Advanced Division No-Gi Submission Wrestling Gold Medalist, Joslin's Canadian National Championships
Rave Review: I switched from another gym and found such a difference in the environment
Starting BJJ was intimidating, coming in as a woman was even more intimidating! I switched from another gym and found such a difference in the environment. Everyone has been welcoming and respectful. I recommend Lin Martial Arts for anyone looking for a good gym, great instruction and supportive students!- Virginia So, Markham
Rave Review: Boxing Classes At Lin Martial Arts Is Just As Amazing
Asides from the world class BJJ instructions from Steve Lin; boxing classes at Lin Martial Arts is just as amazing. I have been to other boxing gyms only to find that it was yet another group fitness class. I was disappointed, until I found the boxing classes here at Lin's. The boxing coach at Lin's is a veteran, and he brings with him a wealth of knowledge in the boxing discipline. The classes are practical and technical, geared towards anyone who is serious about becoming a great striker.- Alton Yuan, GOLD Medalist, Intermediate Divison GOLD Medalist, Joslin's Canadian National Championship
Rave Review: The Level Of Jiu-Jitsu here is GREAT!
"Me and JT Torres just came up to Toronto and stopped by Steve Lin's school. They ran a great competition class. The level of Jiu-Jitsu here is GREAT. Super technical guys. The facilities are awesome. I love the showers in back! That's great. They have a super friendly atmosphere. And I just want to thank Master Lin for letting us come up and train. Thank you so much!"- Keenan Cornelius
