Some good results in Pankration/ MMA, Muay Thai Kickboxing and Submission wrestling in our grappling, striking and MMA Vancouver programs. This picture shows Alex Apareschevei looking in good shape at one of his matches. He now has a record of 5-0 in Muay Thai Kickboxing and is looking into getting into MMA. As a young man, it is sometimes challenging to juggle school, social and mixed martial arts but his desire is strong and he is finding a way. Alex has big goals and is working on finding a way to turn his dreams into a reality. He knows that persistence and a positive attitude are very important in achieving success. The application of the qualities he has learned and is learning on the mat, in the ring and in the cage will undoubtedly help him in his pursuits. Alex, as the picture shows, is always in good shape and has been working on the physical aspect of his mixed martial arts training quite a bit. We wish him much success as that is the name of the game and our goal. Success is what the orientation is… However, the definition of success is certainly variable. So our goal is to help people be successful in a number of dimensions, as that is the traditional approach. We have said previously, that our goal is to make the person the best fighter and the best person possible with the context of fighting being either sport or confidence in self defense.
We have always put our main objectives as Self Defense, Fitness, Mental Discipline and Sport for over 25 years, as I have been running the school, and that is the orientation my instructor gave to me almost 35 years ago when I began the practice of mixed martial arts.
