Happy is the man who is living by his hobby.” – George Bernard Shaw

 

 

Do you have hobbies? Whether it’s reading, dancing, baking or working out, there’s no doubt that hobbies can reinvigorate our lives and make things more interesting – especially when we get caught up with the mundane day-to-day stuff. If you don’t already have a hobby, or perhaps are looking for one, then why not try martial arts if you haven’t already done so! Apart from the fact that self-defense is an essential life skill that could potentially save you and/or your loved ones from danger, martial arts also has heaps of other benefits to offer. Posener’s MMA Vancouver can help.

 

If training martial arts is something that has ever crossed your mind, then it’s time to head to your nearest martial arts gym and discover How Martial Arts Will Reinvigorate Your Life at Posener’s MMA Vancouver:

 

1) Because the learning never ends

It doesn’t matter whether you choose to train Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or boxing – each martial art has its own unique set of techniques and variations for you to learn and execute. So if it has been awhile since you tried something new or picked up a different skill, then why not be a student all over again? After all, life is too short to stop learning, growing, and progressing.

Because there’s so much to learn in martial arts, there’s no doubt that you’ll never get bored and always have room for improvement. Hence, you will ultimately work towards becoming the best version of yourself – in and out of the gym.

 

 

2) Because it keeps you in the pink of health

 

As we get caught up with work or the demands of everyday life, we sometimes fail to take care of ourselves properly. Unfortunately, this does nothing but make us unhealthy and vulnerable to all kinds of illnesses later in life. The thing is, it’s never too late to turn this around and start treating your body the way it deserves to be treated – with utmost respect and care.

If you haven’t been taking care of yourself the way you deserve to be taken care of, then why not kick-start an active lifestyle by training martial arts? Besides being a fun hobby and a great way to get fit, martial arts also boosts your immune system and strengthens your bones.

 

3) Because you’ll get into the best shape ever

4) Because it will always make you happy

5) Because it enables you to unleash your greatness

 

If you find that you can’t maximize your potential in school or work, then martial arts could be an outlet for you to do so, should you choose to make it a hobby. After all, you will have power over how much you wish to train or how far you intend to go – be it to eventually compete or to simply keep progressing till you eventually become the best martial artist you can be.

Besides that, martial arts will forge an unbreakable warrior spirit within you. Hence, you will be able to deal with all kinds of adversity and overcome the obstacles you might face outside the gym as well. As a result, you will definitely go on to achieve great things.

 

Are you ready to reinvigorate your life by picking up martial arts? Why not try it for yourself and pull yourself out of that slump!

Have you been feeling jaded? Perhaps your job, school or maybe a mundane routine has caused you to feel that way. Or maybe you’re just in need of an adventure. Well, whatever it is, we believe that it’s time to spice up your life – especially if you’ve been feeling bored and/or restless. After all, life is too short to not be enjoying and living in every moment.

Are you ready to inject some excitement into your life? Today, Evolve Daily shares 5 Ways Martial Arts Spices Up Your Life:

1) It gets your heart racing

Muay Thai is also known as the "Art of Eight Limbs".

There’s no doubt that martial arts would make your heart beat faster. After all, it is intense – and the best part is that there’s never a dull moment in training because there’s so much to learn. Psst! That’s why some people find themselves falling in love with their martial art of choice and training for life.

If you’ve never set foot in a martial arts gym before, it might seem intimidating – but trust us, it’s totally worth going for that first class and experiencing it for yourself before deciding what to do next. If you never try, you’ll never know what you’re missing out on! And if you think about it, you’ve got nothing to lose by trying.

 

2) It boosts your mood

Have you been feeling down lately? Well, if that’s happening, then you should definitely start training martial arts because it will boost your endorphin production and leave you feeling happy after every session. What’s more, it’s a great way to vent your frustration and forget about your worries (even if it’s just for an hour!) Not convinced? Then check out our article on how martial arts can scientifically keep you happy and stress-free!

 

3) It sculpts your body

It’s no secret that martial arts will give you a lean, toned body. After all, you can burn up to 1,000 calories in just an hour of training! Besides that, you would learn to defend yourself in the face of danger – which is an extremely important life skill that could come in handy someday.

What’s more, martial arts is extremely effective when it comes to melting away fat, so why not punch your way to a great body? Nothing is more fulfilling than working towards (and crushing) your goals, be it fitness, body or martial arts goals.

 

4) It builds your confidence

Life is definitely much better when you trust yourself with making important decisions and more importantly, believe in yourself. So your lack of self-confidence could possibly be making you miserable and causing you to feel like your life is a drag. After all, when you constantly question and doubt yourself, how are you going to have fun?

Fortunately, training martial arts would boost your self-confidence, especially when you make progress in class and get closer to your dream body. When this happens, you’ll notice that you appreciate your body for all that it can do for you, as well as the simple things in life (like having that cheat meal!)

 

5) It encourages you to step out of your comfort zone

What’s more exciting than exploring and getting lost in new worlds? If you think about it, there’s so much to experience and immerse in out there – just that we sometimes decide to stick to what’s comfortable and familiar, so we end up missing out.

Well, you don’t have to worry about missing out on new experiences when you start training martial arts. Apart from being a whole new thing you’re trying out, martial arts would also teach you to embrace the unknown and make you a bolder individual. That means you would happily step out of your comfort zone, broaden your horizons, and grow significantly in the process.

 

So tell us, are you ready to spice up your life? Why not sign up for a class and see how it goes!

Overall Gio trained hard, certainly is motivated and excited for the mixed martial arts challenges he has faced especially after coming off a 6 month injury problem. Just for others to know, Gio has done well in Kickboxing tournaments, Sanshou tournaments, a grappling tournament,  and Muay Thai ring fights and now being the BC Muay Thai champion.

Here is some information on our programs:

 

Kickboxing Vancouver


We have two types of Kickboxing programs at our school:

Muay Thai Kickboxing and Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing.

Here is a brief description of the two programs and their differences:

Muay Thai Kickboxing:

Our traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program develops the main benefits of Self Defense, Fitness, Mental Discipline and Sport. Our Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program utilizes techniques and principles from the Thai tradition, Dutch Kickboxing methods, Japanese methods and principles, and concepts and techniques from Western Boxing. Our style, which has been taught by Simon Posener, who has been training for almost 35 years and teaching full time for 25 years, is constantly evolving and improving, as that is our original goal. The desire to grow, evolve and improve is constant.  The instructors are experienced, personable, knowledgeable and have a passion for teaching the art and improving teaching methods and techniques. We have a long history of producing excellent mixed martial artists and champions of Muay Thai Kickboxing and Pankration / MMA.

 

One of the main differences between the Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program and the Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program is the application of progressive levels of contact sparring, which occurs in the traditional class. Stylistically, the classes are similar. The traditional Muay Thai class is Fitness and Combat intensive. The Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing class is more Fitness and technique intensive and less sparring intensive.

 

In the Traditional class once a student learns the A,B,C’s of defense, which are the  basic defenses from the main strikes used in Muay Thai, which are very important for developing confidence, the basic footwork patterns, and the execution of the basic strikes and clinches, a student will learn progressive levels of contact sparring. Sparring is a requirement for progress in the system. At the beginning levels the sparring is light to medium contact and at the advanced levels a student will participate in full contact, full Muay Thai sparring. Individual differences are considered in the timing and onset of sparring. Progress is also based on the individual, as everyone is unique in their goals and challenges,  and they are compared to their own progress.  Once a student is comfortable with the basics and has a desire to spar, with instructor approval, a graduated method will be started. The benefits of sparring are many. A student will learn to handle pressure of various types, develop physical and mental discipline,  and get a great workout. The pressure from contact sparring is also very important in application of self defense techniques, which are also a part of the curriculum. Self defense applications are taught within the classes and other classes within the school. Also, the Muay Thai sparring will benefit the competitive aspect of Muay Thai Kickboxing, Western Kickboxing, Shootboxing, Sanshou and Pankration/MMA.

 

Our goal in the training is to develop the technique and spirit of the art to the highest level, build camaraderie, and develop a student’s full, balanced, personal potential.

Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing

The Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program develops the main benefits of Self Defense, Fitness and Mental Discipline. This program is stylistically the same as the traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing class but does not have the goal of hard contact sparring or direct Sport application. However, many of the competitors and students who participate in the traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing program also participate in the Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing class because it is an excellent workout and will, without question, improve fitness levels and will provide an opportunity for further skill development. The classes are less formal, done to music, and do not have the pressure of full contact sparring. It is a focused class with the goal of developing skills and peak fitness levels. Advancement in the program is based on a progressive 10 level system. Students advance in the curriculum based on attendance, which is the most important aspect especially within the beginning levels, skill development, and personal fitness level improvements. The advancement of the student is based on their own progress, as everyone has unique challenges and goals.

 

The classes are a high energy explosive workout. The training will develop cardio vascular fitness, aerobic and anaerobic,  muscular strength and muscular endurance, flexibility, burn fat, and improve energy levels. There will not be contact free sparring. We will, however, utilize: sharp shooting techniques, which are non contact, one step sparring, interactive drills and, for more advanced students, semi-free sparring. There is also a self defense component taught specifically, which includes self defense applications of Muay Thai Kickboxing and Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.

 

There are many goals which can be obtained in the Cardio Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver classes. We emphasize an effective workout utilizing Muay Thai Kickboxing techniques to get the student in the best shape they can. We also provide free nutritional counselling, upon request, and provide diet tips to teach the relationship of a healthy lifestyle and diet on mental and physical fitness levels.  As we work together in the class in a spirit of growth and progress, the goal is to make progress on many levels, get results, have fun and make friends.

 

We are offering a free week trial at the school, so you can try us out and see how we can benefit you and help you achieve your goals, or simply enroll today.
