We Have New Mats for Posener’s Pankration/ MMA Vancouver – Pics
This is what it looks like when it was almost completed. They are nice, new, clean, pristine and a definite improvement.
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.
Here is some information on our Submission Wrestling Program, which is a component of our MMA Vancouver 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-defense 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.
