News & Updates

Blood & Iron Victoria Location is Closing

Sad news for Blood and Iron Victoria.
As of January we will be closing our Victoria location.

This year has been very difficult, enduring multiple lengthy Covid 19 government shut downs for sports/martial arts. This has hampered our ability to continue our club at the capacity we once were able to.

We want to thank everyone who supported us, trained with us, and traveled around the world to compete with us.

We cannot thank you enough for the great memories.

We hope to eventually get back to in person training as a small club in Victoria at some point once its safe and restrictions are eased.

For everything Blood and Iron, you can check out our YouTube page, check out our Vancouver location (once restrictions lift), or check out our online program.
Stay safe, and keep those swords shiny!

Our Burnaby Location has moved to Langley

Our new address is unit #103, 6039 196 st.  We are excited to be able to continue training and teaching sword fighting in this large open space. Parking is along the back, we have 3 designated spots and the entire back row is open.

Due to Covid 19 BC Government protocols, Blood & Iron Vancouver is closed until further notice. For more information please email us
