The main Valkyrie WMAA training space is located at 2603 Kingsway, on the northeast corner of Kingsway and Duchess St. We are 10-15 minutes away from the 29th Avenue Skytrain Station, and within a 10-minute walk of the #19, #33, #25, and #41 bus routes. We have two dedicated parking stalls at the rear of the building (#1 and #2), and there is additional street parking along Duchess St. Our location features an 850-square-foot sprung training floor, 400 square feet of removable grappling/boxing mats, ample student storage space and a viewing lounge, unisex washrooms and changerooms, and loaner training equipment for students without their own gear.
We are open to the public from 5:00pm - 9:30pm, Monday to Thursday, 5:00pm - 7:00pm Fridays, and 9:30am to 2:00pm Saturdays. Visitors are welcome whenever class is in session, and we are also available for private and group bookings and personal training on weekdays. For workshops, special events, and our current class schedule, please visit our calendar. If you'd like to visit our space and speak with our staff outside of our regular open hours, feel free to book an appointment for an introduction and tour.
Our street-level location is fully accessible to students and visitors with mobility impairments. We have a large accessible washroom with sink, toilet, and grab bars installed at standard heights for wheelchair users, and provide ramp access onto our raised training floor. We are also in the process of transitioning to scent-free cleaners and soaps, to accommodate students with chemical sensitivities. For more information on physical, gender, and financial accessibility at Valkyrie, please visit our accessibility page or contact us with your questions.
Our space is available for one-time and ongoing rentals outside of class hours. We're happy to share our space with fellow martial artists, health and wellness practitioners, members of Vancouver's film industry, and other local instructors, artists and entrepreneurs.
