Budo Kids Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver Tournament Results from Posener’s MMA
Here are the results from the Submission Only, IBJJF style, Round Robin Kids Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver Tournament held on Sunday June 12 ’16. In this tournament 3 points where given for a submission win, 1 point for a draw where neither competitor submits the other and 0 points where given for a loss.
Ayden Arnold: Gold. 4 matches: 2 Submissions and 2 Draws, Ayden got a rear naked choke submission and an entangled armbar submission. Ayden did some very good matches and is making good progress. Adam Posener: Silver. 5 matches: 1 Submission and 4 Draws. Adam got triangle choke and his other matches where all draws but he was certainly trying to get a submission but was having some difficulty with the size, which he is not quite used to, at this point. It was challenging for him because he competed against some larger kids from about 13 pounds to 25 pounds heavier. We are focusing on the positives where experiences like this can help a student become more stimulated to improve and make further improvements in particular aspects of their game. The opportunity is available to improve strong points to defeat larger opponents and to develop other strategies and sensitivities to adjust one’s style and create an improved flow. It was great for both Adam and Ayden to get 5 and 4 matches respectively. It was a good test in spirit and technique.
Dylan Cheng: Silver- 2 matches: 1 Draw and 1 Loss, Dylan had some great matches and has gone back and forth on the podium with some of the top kids in his division. Brandon Cheng: Silver – 1 Submission with an armbar submission and one loss. Brandon is a phenom in skill and they are certainly putting work, effort, time and energy on improving their mixed martial arts skills.
As I always say and will reiterate in the article below, the main focus is to develop equanimity of spirit and focus on getting experience, making progress in spirit, confidence, technique and character regardless of sporting outcome in the short term. The focus, which is interesting and challenging, is to develop a balanced perspective and have broad success. Mixed Martial Arts is the ultimate and it is great to teach kids striking, grappling and a philosophy of success where the development of combative skills are the vehicle to drive greater success and understanding in life skills, self defense, mental discipline and fitness.
