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.

This is the original hardwood sprung floor that I had put in 20 years ago. At one time starting in about ’94 we would alternate between putting mats out and removing them for the muay thai  kickboxing. Then we went to 2 versions of a permanent mat system and this new version is looking good.

6 Lessons Visiting West Point Taught Me

Don Yeager
December 8, 2014

Last month I had the opportunity of a lifetime that was among the most incredible two days in my career as a speaker. I was invited to speak about leadership at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, arguably the greatest leadership school in the world, to speak with the cadets—who will be commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army and one day lead men and women in protecting our country.

Even though I was there to share my knowledge, West Point also taught me a lot of valuable lessons in greatness that I promise will have a tremendous impact on my life. And I want to pass them along to you here. While on campus, I learned…

 

1. To lead others, you must first lead yourself.

 

 

Everyone who’s driven to be a leader probably wants a large following. But at West Point, your first responsibility is to lead one person—yourself.  As a freshman (also known as a plebe), self is your only leadership responsibility. When you become a sophomore (yearling), you are challenged to lead one other person as their mentor. Third-year students (cows) have the opportunity to lead anywhere from nine to 120 other cadets. And finally, during their last year at West Point, seniors (firsties) have the opportunity to be selected to lead the entire 4,400-member cadet corps. But before any of that can happen, you must prove that you can lead yourself.

 

2. When your mission is boldly and abundantly clear, you can expect great things from everyone.

 

 

Life at West Point is challenging, but every cadet knows what they are signing up for before they arrive. The goal of the academy is grand, but because the mission is clear, cadets step on campus prepared to do big things. Everyone knows what to expect and, as a result, the cadets are ready to work together to accomplish great goals.

 

3. If you recruit well on the front end, you’ll have fewer issues with attrition and turnover.

 

 

Without question, succeeding at this school is not easy. Even so, the academy has a low dropout rate—this is a result of great, honest recruiting efforts. West Point recruiters are not busy trying to sell someone to attend, but, instead, they carefully and deliberately seek out students who align with their vision from the start.

 

4. Pull from your own experiences—successes and failures alike—as you help shape future leaders.

 

 

I had a chance to sit in on several classes and watch professors teach the cadets. The professors brought their lessons to life by teaching around the military experiences that they’d experienced while in the line of duty, as they were in the field and leading. I admired how this touch of realism made every lesson more dynamic to the cadets, and I realized that this kind of teaching is rarely used in other settings.

 

5. Sports allow you to bring out the best of your competitive side.

 

 

They believe every cadet is an athlete. Whether cadets are participating on a varsity team, playing intramural sports or competing in running events, athletic participation is expected—and for good reason. Sports help cadets to discipline their aggressive pursuit of goals to maximum efficiency. The administration at West Point wants these skills to be practiced actively by every cadet.

 

6. Precision and teamwork are highly important to any great mission.

 

 

I had a chance to have lunch in the cadet mess hall. Incredibly, all 4,400 cadets are served their meals in 12 minutes. It was a feat to behold and was the definition of meticulousness and clockwork. I was consistently fascinated with how the academy implemented discipline in such an everyday occurrence.

Check in next week for the leadership lessons I shared with the cadets at West Point.
