Here is some information on the two types of Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver programs we offer:

 

Kickboxing Vancouver


We have two types of Kickboxing programs at our school:

Muay Thai Kickboxing and Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing.

Here is a brief description of the two programs and their differences:

Muay Thai Kickboxing:

Our traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program develops the main benefits of Self Defense, Fitness, Mental Discipline and Sport. Our Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program utilizes techniques and principles from the Thai tradition, Dutch Kickboxing methods, Japanese methods and principles, and concepts and techniques from Western Boxing. Our style, which has been taught by Simon Posener, who has been training for almost 35 years and teaching full time for 25 years, is constantly evolving and improving, as that is our original goal. The desire to grow, evolve and improve is constant.  The instructors are experienced, personable, knowledgeable and have a passion for teaching the art and improving teaching methods and techniques. We have a long history of producing excellent mixed martial artists and champions of Muay Thai Kickboxing and Pankration / MMA.

 

One of the main differences between the Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program and the Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program is the application of progressive levels of contact sparring, which occurs in the traditional class. Stylistically, the classes are similar. The traditional Muay Thai class is Fitness and Combat intensive. The Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing class is more Fitness and technique intensive and less sparring intensive.

 

In the Traditional class once a student learns the A,B,C’s of defense, which are the  basic defenses from the main strikes used in Muay Thai, which are very important for developing confidence, the basic footwork patterns, and the execution of the basic strikes and clinches, a student will learn progressive levels of contact sparring. Sparring is a requirement for progress in the system. At the beginning levels the sparring is light to medium contact and at the advanced levels a student will participate in full contact, full Muay Thai sparring. Individual differences are considered in the timing and onset of sparring. Progress is also based on the individual, as everyone is unique in their goals and challenges,  and they are compared to their own progress.  Once a student is comfortable with the basics and has a desire to spar, with instructor approval, a graduated method will be started. The benefits of sparring are many. A student will learn to handle pressure of various types, develop physical and mental discipline,  and get a great workout. The pressure from contact sparring is also very important in application of self defense techniques, which are also a part of the curriculum. Self defense applications are taught within the classes and other classes within the school. Also, the Muay Thai sparring will benefit the competitive aspect of Muay Thai Kickboxing, Western Kickboxing, Shootboxing, Sanshou and Pankration/MMA.

 

Our goal in the training is to develop the technique and spirit of the art to the highest level, build camaraderie, and develop a student’s full, balanced, personal potential.

Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing

The Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program develops the main benefits of Self Defense, Fitness and Mental Discipline. This program is stylistically the same as the traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing class but does not have the goal of hard contact sparring or direct Sport application. However, many of the competitors and students who participate in the traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing program also participate in the Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing class because it is an excellent workout and will, without question, improve fitness levels and will provide an opportunity for further skill development. The classes are less formal, done to music, and do not have the pressure of full contact sparring. It is a focused class with the goal of developing skills and peak fitness levels. Advancement in the program is based on a progressive 10 level system. Students advance in the curriculum based on attendance, which is the most important aspect especially within the beginning levels, skill development, and personal fitness level improvements. The advancement of the student is based on their own progress, as everyone has unique challenges and goals.

 

The classes are a high energy explosive workout. The training will develop cardio vascular fitness, aerobic and anaerobic,  muscular strength and muscular endurance, flexibility, burn fat, and improve energy levels. There will not be contact free sparring. We will, however, utilize: sharp shooting techniques, which are non contact, one step sparring, interactive drills and, for more advanced students, semi-free sparring. There is also a self defense component taught specifically, which includes self defense applications of Muay Thai Kickboxing and Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.

 

There are many goals which can be obtained in the Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver classes. We emphasize an effective workout utilizing Muay Thai Kickboxing techniques to get the student in the best shape they can. We also provide free nutritional counselling, upon request, and provide diet tips to teach the relationship of a healthy lifestyle and diet on mental and physical fitness levels.  As we work together in the class in a spirit of growth and progress, the goal is to make progress on many levels, get results, have fun and make friends.

 

We are offering a free week trial at the school, so you can try us out and see how we can benefit you and help you achieve your goals, or simply enroll today.

Here is a description from Yana about her practice and philosophy:

 

 

“Make friends with the wild and visit it often”. The wild is the dark unexplored area of our minds and bodies, severed from our conscious awareness through fear of rejection. Go there.

Yoga and Meditation are only tools which cultivate the clarity to help shine the light into that darkness. This is a great benefit.

When the mind steadies and the body is relaxed, the power, the chi, flows smoothly, like water. To achieve this state one must master the mind, harness the emotions and nurture the body in a way which sustains the chi.

The Deep Stretch and Meditation class will provide the students with the tools of breathing techniques to help calm and center the mind; poses which will increase flexibility and release tension; and create emotional courage.

Yana is a Certified Yoga Instructor, and a practitioner for the past eight years.

The only true fear is the fear of the unknown. Trying is like winning the first battle.”

Many great mixed martial arts practitioners have used yoga to enhance their state of mind and balance themselves. Here is a reminder of the example of the great Rickson Gracie.

For my 55th Birthday, I would like to celebrate by helping others get essential clean water. As an incentive for the Season, if a student donates $50 or more, they will get a free month added to their membership. If a prospective student/client donates $50 or more they get a free month trial. If you want to donate more, that is great and appreciated and if you want to donate anything, we can help others significantly. Last time 4 years ago we raised $1509 for a project in Mali. Let’s try for $2,000 this time. It all helps. Please contribute. Thank you.

 

100% of the proceeds of this charitable project will go to others to help them get clean water.

Thank you for starting a campaign for clean water! Together, we’re about to change people’s lives.

– your friends at charity: water

The incentives can help people donate and I am happy to provide my services to do something significant.

Here is the link to donate: Simon’s 55th Birthday for Clean Water. Incentives and 100% of proceeds to the charity

 

663 million people in the world live without clean water.1

That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

But access to clean water means education, income and health – especially for women and kids.

How We Work

We invest the money we raise into organizations with years of experience to build sustainable, community-owned water projects around the world. Our team works closely to ensure that every dollar is accounted for and then provides reports back to our donors. Learn about our approach, the solutions we fund and our partners on the ground.

Our Progress

We’re passionate about solving the water crisis in our lifetime, using 100% of all public donations to fund water projects, and proving where every dollar goes with photos and GPS coordinates. Here’s the progress we’ve made since we started working in 2006.

Congratulations to Francis on a hard fought win on Saturday night, February 17 ’18 at the Coga Combat Games MMA in the US.

Here is a brief review of the fight:

 

In the First round , Santiago came out strong with crisp hard, fast strikes, that were perhaps a bit better than expected based on the small amount of video we could find. He came into this mma fight with a 5-1 record. There were some good exchanges by both fighters. Francis did land some low kicks, his patented overhand right, some jabs and clinch battles. Santiago did land a takedown or two but Francis was able to recover and keep battling, as he always does. The first round was close but Santiago may have gotten the round based on initiating the takedown and being busy in the clinch with some knees and punches.

 

In the Second Round , there were some relatively equal exchanges of strikes and some back and forth action against the cage and in the clinch. However, Francis gained top cross body side control against Santiago and Santiago was defending the position quite well considering his position close to the cage. Of course, Francis likes to execute his submission attempts from cross body side mount. That option was limited and he was close to us. We told him to get the mount, and he did effortlessly. Francis spent quite some time on the top mount and Santiago was defending strongly and Francis was able to get the back mount and was fighting strongly to finish the RNC. Santiago was defending the RNC strongly and Francis did not get the finish. Santiago was able to scramble free right at the end of the round. Francis, in my opinion, certainly got that round.

 

In the Third Round, there were some good exchanges of strikes, clinch battles and cage fighting that were back and forth. Santiago was using the 100% grip position to control some of Francis movement and was busy and quite strong in the clinch. Francis did fight well against this strong opponent and was able to also finish the fight on the mount. In my opinion, that strong finish and mount position got him the round.

 

It was a good battle with good sportsmanship by both camps. It was a pleasure to be involved with this organization that was run by an old friend of mine. The venue, and organization were professional and the sold out crowd enjoyed the action, which we had the pleasure of watching the remaining fights. Francis is now 5-0 in mma.

 

Thank you to our awesome instructor team, Costa Rojas, George Kassimatis, Hayden Francis,  Gus Rodriquez, Andrew De Leon, Emilio Ditrocchio, Jonathan Chan, Victor Tiapis,  and those who helped Francis get ready for this fight. We are looking forward to the next challenge.
