Adam had 2 opponents in his Gi Division and 2 opponents in his no gi division at the WBJJF, Oscar’s of Jiu-Jitsu Tournament held today on Saturday October 22 ’16.

 

His first match in the gi he won by triangle to armbar combination, his second match he won by his first arm in guillotine. In the no gi division he won his first match by jumping guard with a overhook shoulder lock and finished it on the ground in what is sometimes referred to as the ‘Mir lock’ because he made it famous in his UFC fight, and it is a somewhat unusual submission. In his final match in the no gi, Adam jumped on the opponents back from standing and finished the rear naked choke, as his opponent went to the ground.

 

This was the first time Adam has competed in both Gi and No Gi for Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver and he did a couple of different submissions that he has not done before in competition, which is fun. It is nice to have fun and some challenges, internally and externally.

 

We will look forward to more training, competition, learning and making progress.

Here is some information on our Kids MMA and Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver program:

 

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.

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.
