Here is some information on our Kids MMA/ Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver programs:

 

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.

Francis Tiapis wins Ax Fighting MMA Title: Posener’s MMA Vancouver

Francis Tiapis wins Ax Fighting MMA Title: Posener’s MMA Vancouver

The New Ax Fighting MMA Champion is Francis Tiapis representing Posener’s MMA Vancouver. Francis wins the title in the second round by rear naked choke submission.  Many members of our team and Instructor team helped Francis get the belt but first, here is what happened. My interpretation is based on memory and I haven’t seen any video of the fight.

 

 

Round 1: The fight was largely on the feet with striking and wrestling. Both fighters exchanged and wrestled for position. Francis had an edge in striking and was able to defend the cage work and put Hunter against the cage. Francis also did some good ground and pound from the top half guard. Unfortunately Francis broke his hand in the first round. The break has been confirmed. It was a good round for both fighters. Francis was ready and Hunter demonstrated he was well versed in the cage and had good experience, as his 15 mma fights would indicate.

 

 

Round 2: I think Francis knew his hand was injured badly and he decided to put the fight on the ground. Hunter was able to maintain guard but Francis was able to pass to half guard, execute ground and pound and then pass guard. Hunter re guarded and the Jiu-Jitsu battle was on. I instructed Francis to pass more strongly and stabilize the north south position, which Hunter utilized his pendulum to re guard and Francis had to battle for another pass and transition to north south position again and he was successful. He then worked to mount, held mount, stabilized mount and during the transitions Francis was able to maintain top position and sink in the rear naked choke for the submission victory and claim the title. It was a very exciting match and huge congratulations to Francis on taking the title with a clean, clear victory. Thank you to Hunter and his team, as they are great competitors and a good group.

 

Special thanks to our awesome instructor team and assistants: Costa Rojas, George Kassimatis, Paul Gibbons, Minna Kim, Victor Tiapis, Gus Rodriquez for the strength and conditioning and all the other members of the school who helped out.. Thank you from Posener’s MMA Vancouver.
