Here is a brief description of the BFL Fight: Posener’s MMA Vancouver:

 

Gio Platon had a great fight last night for the BFL MMA Title. The end result was not the desired outcome. In the first round Gio executed dominant striking. Gio was landing strong low kicks, fast and powerful boxing and elusive footwork. He delivered a lot of damaging kicks and punches. He knocked Paul’s mouth guard out approximately 3 or 4 times and had Paul in serious trouble a number of times where he was staggered and almost finished. However, Paul was tough, resilient, durable, determined and skillful in his own right, as he is also a mma champion with more than twice the number of mma fights than Gio. Paul made it out of the 1st round. Gio’s striking was on point and his wrestling was strong in defending takedowns and positions off the cage. There were some exchanges on the ground with both fighters initiating takedowns and countering. They were both able to achieve a takedown or two. Gio was also able to get the fight back to the feet where his advantage was strongest. It was an incredibly fast pace for a 5 round title fight in the first round. Gio started the second round strongly also and was hitting his opponent effectively but was started to show signs of fatigue. Eventually after an exchange of wrestling and positioning on the ground, and Gio being extremely tired, Paul got Gio on his back with Gio able to acheive the guard but was unable to defend some ground strikes or escape, due to the fatigue and intensity. He took a few strikes in the guard and the referee stopped the fight. It was certainly a bitter pill, as he wanted the belt but Gio gained the admiration of fans and competitors. Gio’s resilient spirit can help him learn from this and he knows the areas to improve on to take him to the belt and beyond in the future. Congratulations to Paul, as he showed great heart, durability and skill. It was a great battle of top amateur warriors in mixed martial arts. Gio said in the post fight speech, after the announcers congratulated him on an awesome display of speed, and technique, that he would be back. It was an honor to teach, and coach. We will look forward to the next time. Special thanks to Costa Rojas and George Kassimatis for coaching and all the other instructors, assistants and supporters. OSU!

Here is what Gio said about his fight and his perspective on Social Media:

 

Didn’t come through with the win, but I did the best that I could. He was the better man that night, it was a tough loss. But that’s part of this ruthless sport that I love ! I had fun no matter what and it was a great experience! Shout out to all my family and friends that came out to support! Still just the beginning for me. Lots to learn. I’m not perfect inside or outside the cage, but believe me I’m trying to be the best version of myself everyday. I will learn from my mistakes and correct them. It was a hell of a night, hope y’all were entertained 😎💣🇨🇦🇵🇭 #posenerspankration #stillblessed#warriors4life #bfl52 #mma

This is what the promoter said after the fight, since Gio accepted the fight even though the opponent did not make the title fight weight:

At BFL52 Gio saved the show by accepting a title fight in a higher weightclass despite his opponent coming in 3 pounds over….Gio will be granted an automatic title shot in March 2018 at 135 or 145 whichever division his camp chooses….

Here is a brief description of Hayden Francis and his philosophy:

 

Hayden started BJJ by taking grappling classes in high school, from then on he was hooked. His official training began in December of 2009 at Gracie Barra Jiu Jitsu School and Hayden quickly adopted Jiu Jitsu as the foundation of his daily activity; helping his focus and supporting all other aspects of his life. Hayden’s teaching goals focus on conceptual learning that matches the goals and learning styles of students. Hayden believes learning concepts rather than a step-by-step process helps to make lessons more solid for students and let them follow their own path in Jiu Jitsu.

Hayden is currently a brown belt and has a wealth of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu  ( BJJ Vancouver ) and competition.

Here is some information on our Kids/Youth MMA Vancouver program:

 

To register for our self defence classes for kids in Vancouver, contact us – the best mixed martial arts school in Vancouver!

Vancouver’s Premier Mixed Martial Arts school for children and youths.


With special attention given to motor skill development, mental focusing attributes, and children’s inherent capabilities. Youth kickboxing Vancouver Children’s and Teen classes are designed to emphasize:

– DISCIPLINE – RESPECT – CONFIDENCE DEVELOPMENT – SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT

The development of these qualities and principals are given extra attention because they build a strong foundation in the three battles: the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit.If developed properly, then success is assured.

We engage in a brief zazen meditation at the beginning of each class to become present, focused and prepared for what is to come in the class, and, at the end of class, we meditate briefly to lock in the experiences, center our energy, and commit to continuing making progress. As a regular practice to enhance learning, we also repeat strongly the Tenets of the School, Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit, at the end of each class to solidify the development of these qualities for Kids Mixed Martial Arts Vancouver.

 

Our Qualification Code, which is a form to be filled out by the parent and student for advancement in rank, for Kids MMA Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Muay Thai, highlights that respect and school achievement, in addition to the development of combative skills in mixed martial arts, are highly valued, esteemed and developed.

 

The development of equanimity of spirit is also given special attention in order to deal with challenges well; especially in regards to winning and losing. The attributes of effort, determination, skill development and spirit are given special attention, as these qualities will lead to enduring success. The goal of truly doing one’s best, regardless of outcome, especially in regards to some combative sport applications, is given priority to help develop progress, growth and character. The consistent and continuous goal of making progress in all areas, both on the mat and off, will help develop a student’s full long term potential for Kids/Youth MMA Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Muay Thai.

I am happy to announce our next charitable project initiative. We are running a grocery bag promotion where 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Brooksdale Environmental Center. The Center is involved in many aspects of environmental stewardship, education and conservation. They are a local organization with far reaching objectives. They will help save the local Salmon populations and educate on environmental conservation and care of creation and more. The minimum donation for a bag will be $5 and 100% of the proceeds will go to this excellent organization.  www.Arocha.ca

 

 

In the past we have supported Clean Water Charities, World Vision, The RJ Canuel Police Fund, Kick Drugs out of Canada and more. In this climate of change and increased consciousness on our environment and related issues, I feel this charitable promotion can create a win, win, win situation. I have described, simply, the main objectives: Save the Salmon, Environmental Stewardship and Inspiring Hope.

With the wealth of information and concern on our environment, health and diet, I am hoping to do something useful on a few different levels. Simply increasing consciousness of current issues will benefit, the individual, the environment and our society.

 

 

Personally, I have taken an interest in growing natural food and being concerned with the relationship of diet and health. Considering my wear and tear injuries, being concerned with a healthy diet has helped and increased perspective. There is a personal benefit of eating more fruits and vegetables; it does make you feel good.

MMA Vancouver . It was an unusually hot summer. 

 

Besides some basic diet concepts listed on our personal training website of a few years ago,

Posener’s Ultimate Personal Training

 

, I have evolved my personal practice and kept up with education and the constant pursuit of knowledge. Personally I don’t buy beef, chicken, or pork from the supermarket largely because I don’t agree with the commercialization of those industries, the effects of these industries on the environment or the humanitarian concerns for meat production. I think there is ample evidence there are health benefits of consuming less meat, especially this stressed out type, and eating more whole natural foods.

Next year I will expand on my own garden considerably. I do enjoy the Zen aspect of it, and more, and it has improved my awareness; I am looking to continue on that. This is a condensed summary of the basics, which can be expanded later.  So, as I join the Arnold campaign and others of eating less meat and being concerned with the environment, there is a hopeful opportunity to start a ripple effect of benefit. Eating natural whole foods that are produced responsibly and humanely will help a lot. Eating less meat, especially the commercially produced kind where the animals are stressed, raised in confined pens without the freedom of movement, and being aware will help; not to mention the environmental effect of some of these industries. Having the Posener’s Pankration/ MMA Vancouver / Arocha  grocery bags will also be a good reminder. The warrior way considers health multidimensional and to strive to maximize our potential and others.

 

 

 

In this climate of change, this promotion will help and I hope you buy some bags, tell your friends about health and our groups, inspire hope and think of benefits for yourself and others.

 

God bless.
