To the instructors at Posener's Pankration & Kel Lee's AMA, martial arts is a source of pride. They're honoured to challenge themselves to approach their practice with discipline and self-control, which carries over into their daily lives. The dojo's instructors specialize in pankration, a modern mixed martial arts version of the ancient Greek form of free-for-all fighting. With championships and years of experience beneath their black belts, they also empower students with knowledge and skills in mixed martial arts styles such as muay thai kickboxing and submission wrestling.
The studio's white walls are festooned with international flags and shelves lined with trophies, plaques, and belts. In the corner, piles of mats and pads await their chance to host sparring sessions, the greatest honour for mats and pads. Upstairs, boxing posters blanket the walls, punching bags hand from the ceiling, and the ring stands ready to host matches and the subsequent tea parties thrown for the winner.
