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

 

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.

Rodean Nazari: Gold in No Gi and Silver in Gi, Ayden Arnold: Gold in No Gi. ( he was sick and unable to compete in Gi), Artin Nazari: Bronze in No Gi and Bronze in Gi ( he was also sick, as the flu was going around) Jonathan Chan: Bronze in No Gi ( First Grappling Tournament), Jonathan certainly got some good experience as 2 or 3 of his matches went into overtime and were very close and excellent matches.  Honorable mention to Richard Ronquillo and Adam Nathani for also competing in their first tournament. Richard unfortunately sustained a significant shoulder tear early in his match but battled strongly in a close match.  It is often hard to get the first tournament in so I want to congratulate you for making the effort and competing in a more advanced level. You all gained valuable experience and with a positive attitude, you will improve and make progress. Regardless of winning or losing it is good to think of what you can improve on and have the stimulation to progress and develop skills. Again Congratulations on the effort and results.

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.

Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver

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.

NAGA Tournament Results September 10 ’16: Congratulations to everyone who competed. NAGA attracts some of the best competitors and competing is a challenge in itself. So keep on enjoying the challenge and making big picture progress.

 

 

Adam Posener: Expert – Belt winner, Ayden Arnold: Expert- Silver, Marques Calapiz- Adavanced: Silver, Micah Calapiz: Adavanced- Silver, Kingston Park: Beginner – Silver and Bronze in his first Gi division ( Roll BJJ Partnership), Linh Thuy Diep: Beginner – Gold.

 

 

I will describe in some detail the expert divisions. For Adam this was quite a goal and accomplishment. He competed against two kids who have won multiple tournaments in World Championships. Against Russel the score was 15-0 and against Winter, he locked in, for the first time in competition, an inverted triangle, as a submission flow off the falling/flying armbar series. Ayden, in his no gi expert division, had an incredibly close match against a familiar competitor who he has competed against a couple of times before giving and taking victories. He lost by just one point in a back and forth affair that was highly contested with position changes, submission attempts by Ayden and reversals.  Ayden competed very well. Again, I want to acknowledge all the competitors for stepping up and challenging themselves in this highly competitive arena. I certainly love helping enthusiastic, willing, kids and adults through the martial arts. I feel strongly we have an excellent instructor team and we provide many opportunities for helping people get benefits from mixed martial arts practice on a variety of levels.
