The dynamical fermion mass generation in the four-dimensional brane is discussed in a model with five-dimensional Kaluza-Klein fermions in interaction with four-dimensional fermions. It is found that the dynamical fermion masses are generated beyond the critical radius of the compactified extra dimensional space and may be made small compared with the masses of the Kaluza-Klein modes.
