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.

Adam Posener is now offering private lessons to Kids/Youth who want to improve their mixed martial arts.

 

Adam has good experience and has a desire to help others with their goals. He has done private training with others before with good results and we have decided to go back to that idea and continue to help others and foster a strong win/win relationship. Adam does assist in many classes at the dojo, participates in the Kids/Youth and adult classes, and is looking forward to helping a select few to improve. He is excited to help others achieve significant results. Of course the curriculum and concepts will be overseen by the head instructor, myself.

Here is some information on our Submission Wrestling/ No Gi and MMA program:

 

 

Vancouver’s ultimate Submission Wrestling training for: Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Self Defense, Fitness, Mental Discipline and Sport.

Our Submission Wrestling classes utilize techniques adapted from free-style wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu – BJJ Vancouver, “Catch-as-catch-can” (Folk American wrestling), Catch Wrestling, Shoot wrestling, Sambo, and Judo. These techniques are modified to be applicable for Pankration, MMA fighting (Mixed Martial Arts) and Submission wrestling as a sport. Our submission wrestling classes are a subsection of our Pankration curriculum.

It is the blending of our striking within the grappling context that makes our style unique and distinctive.
Whether it is the blending of striking and grappling to and from clinching, to take-downs, to ground fighting with submissions, our style is geared towards practicality.

Since our style and curriculum has a broad range of techniques, the individual student has the ability and potential to express their skills to the fullest degree.

Our classes provide an excellent physical workout developing muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio vascular fitness and flexibility. In the process of training and getting in great shape, the student will be learning techniques that are useful for self-defence and sport.

Our classes are taught by experienced martial artists emphasizing discipline and respect with the aim of helping the student achieve their goals while enjoying the process and developing camaraderie. Many of the students and instructors have been successful using the school’s style in pankration/mixed martial arts and submission wrestling competition.

Our New Green Charity: A Rocha Canada – Posener’s MMA Vancouver

Our New Green Charity: A Rocha Canada – Posener’s MMA Vancouver

In this post I am going to provide some more information about A Rocha Canada and the Brooksdale Environmental Center.

We are now supporting, via the sale of grocery tote bags and taking donations, the Brooksdale Environmental Center and A Rocha Canada, which is a local green charity with far reaching international and global objectives. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these bags will go to this charity.

 

If people want to donate to this charity online, that can happen. If they access the website via this page or the previous post from our website, we can keep track of our donation totals, which would be inspiring. www.Arocha.ca

 

The more I learn the more inspired I become to be part of the solution.

Currently
Environmental Challenges are one of our greatest challenges that need attention. I have listed 3 items of concern, which are listed on the bags:

 

1. Save the Salmon: A Arocha is involved in this specific conservation concern with the Little Campbell River, to provide a specific example. Actually they are involved in many projects. This is a local concern to help people with identification.  Here is some information from their website:

 

A Rocha is committed to the conservation and restoration of the natural world through both scientific research and practical conservation projects. Our scientific work provides the strong foundation needed for informed protection and management. Our conservation projects are aimed at slowing or reversing the trends of habitat loss that are affecting many species. In practical terms, this means we are lifting binoculars skyward to conduct bird surveys, removing invasive species in order to restore salmon streams, and collecting data on a myriad of species in BC, Manitoba and Ontario.

 

At A Rocha we appreciate the strong connection between a healthy environment and the health of the human community. Therefore, where possible, we work with local landowners and residents to understand their concerns and collaborate with them in the good act of stewardship.

2. Environmental Stewardship:

This is a more general concept highlighted by one of A Rocha’s main headlines: Caring for Creation. A Rocha has branches all over the world.

Website:      A Rocha is building a network of hands-on conservation projects in communities across the nation, ( and the world) . Driven by local context, local needs and local leadership, the exact focus of each A Rocha project varies – ranging from gardens and farms, to watershed protection and habitat restoration. Whatever the focus, each project involves research, education and hands-on opportunities for people to get involved in environmental conservation.

 

3. Inspiring Hope: 

 

There can be improvement. With conscientious attention and involvement or empowering those people and groups to do their good work, positive change can happen.

 

This is A Rocha’s aim:

 

In an environmental context often characterized by fear and paralysis, A Rocha is bringing hope through care of both people and places. We are preserving sensitive habitats and threatened species, growing organic food and feeding people living on low income, inspiring school children and training young people. A Rocha is changing the way people treat the earth.

 

Here is our previous post with some background, history of previous charitable campaigns and some basic explanation of win, win, win objectives.

Hayden Francis: GI BJJ Vancouver Program at Posener’s MMA

We are making a small change to the timing of our GI BJJ Vancouver program. We are going to be running the class on Wednesday’s from 7-8 pm. This will enable the juniors who want to do the MMA class from 5-7 pm to transition into the GI BJJ class and the adults can also attend and transition to the Muay Thai from 8- 9:30 pm.

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.

We are looking forward to this new time slot for the GI BJJ Vancouver class, as it should help both the students and instructor attend regularly and make progress. The Saturday time slot often conflicted with tournaments and events.
