Training Class: Obstacle Course
The benchmark for POPAT/PARE
fitness preparation is stronger than ever! This class was the reason Code 5
Fitness started, and it has been a wonderfully satisfying journey. To see so
many grads succeed in reaching their goals and go from “client” to “Constable”
is an incredible feeling! If you
need help training for and passing a police fitness test, look no further. Often imitated, never duplicated, the
Code 5 Fitness Police Training Program is an industry standard. For full

Street Self-Defence Workshop
Former Police Officer and Owner of Code 5 Fitness Tricia Dong teams with highly acclaimed Martial Arts instructor Brent Matsuda to provide a co-ed workshop on how to defend against and survive a violent personal attack. On the street, there is no ring or cage, there are no referees, and you cannot tap out. With no medals for second place in a real-world attack, there is only one winner, and in this workshop, it shall be YOU. Tricia will show you what to do to ensure you have the mental preparedness, self-confidence, and physical capabilities to defeat your attacker.
Men – this is a great opportunity to learn some practical self-defence in a non-competitive, non-intimidating environment. Emphasis will be on natural body movement, not memorization of complicated systems of attack and defence so the student won’t be overwhelmed with too many moves in the toolbox.
Ladies – if you have ever said to yourself, “It won’t happen to me”, after seeing reports of another “Stranger Danger!” personal attack on the news, you are WRONG. It DOES happen to nice people like yourself, it CAN happen to you, but there IS something you can do about it! If you are prepared, you can avoid becoming another crime statistic on the six o’clock news.
Dress Code: Street clothing; please bring a long-sleeved sweatshirt or jacket. ** No experience necessary! **
Date/ Time: Wednesday April 18
Cost: N/A -- PRIVATE EVENT
Co-Ed Intro to FMA Workshop
A first in Vancouver! This is a 3-hour, hands-on workshop introducing women to the basics of Filipino Martial Arts, taught by Guro Louie Lindo, Chief Instructor of Ikatan Kali/ Silat Canada, and hosted by Tricia Dong of Code 5 Fitness. Participants will be taught logical progressions of body movement with a system of open hand and single-stick strikes, blocks, and parries influenced from a blend of Filipino Martial Arts. No experience is necessary!
A client favourite, the Skid Row Walking Tour is an
essential and invaluable life and career lesson for police hopefuls and
civilians alike. Shocking and
saddening, yet profoundly eye-opening and inspiring, we take a 2-hour stroll
through the most notorious neighbourhood in North America for a first-hand
glimpse of what life is like in the DTES – from a local perspective. What you
see in sanitized media stories is often quite different than the stark reality
of everyday life in Canada’s poorest postal code. Each tour yields different
experiences, from honest talks with addicts, long-time residents, outreach
workers, to tours of S.R.O.s, emergency shelters, detox, community resources,
Dates/ Times: TBA
