I have achieved my Level 5 Cardio Muay Thai with Posener’s Pankration MMA (hit the link) after close to 5 years of attending 2-3 times per week.
Posener’s Pankration MMA traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing Vancouver program develops the main benefits of Self Defense, Fitness, Mental Discipline and Sport. The 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. The style, which has been taught by Simon Posener, (hit the link) who has competed for 20 years, retired and devoted himself to coach exclusively for 18 years, is constantly evolving and improving, as that is his original goal. The desire to grow, evolve and improve is constant. The Instructors (hit the link) are experienced, personable, knowledgeable and have a passion for teaching the art and improving teaching methods and techniques. The Dojo has 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.
Thank you Simon Posener, the elite Instructor Team and my fellow students for the skill development, inspiration, energy and friendship.
