Jr. Pankration/ Kids MMA Test Results for Dec. 22 ’12 for Kids Martial Arts Vancouver

Jr. Pankration/ Kids MMA Vancouver belt test results for December 22 ’12: Yellow belt- Nicholas Kristianson, Ashton Gounder, and Justin Prevost. Orange belt: James Wolf, Lucien Kumar and Nolin Lee-Pii. Purple belt: Jordan Johal, Green belt: Jaeden Ampana, Clark Duan and Adam Posener, and Red belt: Jerrell Van Drunen. Congratulations! and to a successful 2013. 

A few kids have done what it takes to advance a level. Jerrell is the highest belt on this day and everyone, in my opinion, has done well to make progress and improvement for themselves. With continued training, self discipline, time, and effort growth will occur. Consistency is the key and some homework certainly helps.

Applications of martial arts concepts off the mat for Kids Martial Arts Vancouver

After requests of this concept and the need to expand student thinking, I am inserting some information from the student manual with a couple of minor additions from the original printing many years ago.

Physical Qualities of a Champion and Their Mental Equivalent

The following examples show how one can concentrate and develop many good physical qualities in their training and then  correspondingly apply those concepts to mental development.

Physical Mental

  • Speed                                            *Quick Thinking
  • Power                                           *Knowledge
  • Good technical form              *Good manners/etiquette
  • Stamina                                       *Perseverance
  • Flexibility                                   *Open mind
  • Accuracy                                    *Realistic thinking
  • Coordination                             *Balance of personal and professnl life
  • Timing                                           *Being Punctual

Part of the martial art in the ‘art’ sense or the application of what is called ‘The way’ one would consider these applications. There are many and that is what makes martial arts such an interesting and evolving ‘Way.’

I am also going to include a reprint of a student creed that some schools use to impart some beneficial qualities.

Student Creed

I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that will reduce my physical health and mental growth.

I intend to develop my self-discipline to bring out the best in myself and others

I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help myself and others and to never be abusive or offensive.

For now I am going to describe an element of  the first paragraph and last paragraph. It is interesting that if this philosophy is applied by the practitioner that practitioner would not be involved in anything that will reduce their physical health and mental growth. To put that in other words that person would then not be involved in drugs or anything like that. If more people were following that principle that would be a great benefit. It has to be taught.

In the last paragraph it describes using the skill defensively and not being abusive and offensive. If that would be applied and individual would not be involved in unnecessary violence. So by applying the principle of  paragraph 1 and paragraph 3 in this short little discourse of today, there would be no drugs and violence in this individual and that benefit could be spread to others directly and by example.

These philosophies are for Martial Arts Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Muay Thai.
