Oguzhan Yalcin wins MMA Fight at BFL: Posner’s MMA Vancouver
On Saturday July 6 ’19, Oguzhan Yalcin fought in the main event spot at BFL MMA in Richmond B.C. He won by split decsion in a tough fight with an excellent competitor. In only his second fight he got the main event spot, in part due to his wrestling credentials and his opponents strong Jiu-Jitsu and mma experience. Emotions were high, as Oguzhan has only been doing mma for a relatively short time. He has improved in the technical aspects of the sport greatly and we all hope and expect continued improvement in all areas.
I would like to thank team Titan for their consistent skill and sportsmanship in taking the fight. Both fighters are young and have great potential for progress.
I would also like to thank our awesome instructor team: George Kassimatis, Costa Rojas, Hayden Francis, Gio Platon, Emilio Ditrocchio, Gus Rodriquez, Adam Posener, and the rest of the team. Further thanks to all the supporters of our school, philosophy and goals.
Here is some information on our Submission Wrestling program:
Vancouver’s ultimate Submission Wrestling training for: Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Self Defense, Fitness, Mental Discipline and Sport.
Our Submission Wrestling classes utilize techniques adapted from free-style wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu – BJJ Vancouver, “Catch-as-catch-can” (Folk American wrestling), Catch Wrestling, Shoot wrestling, Sambo, and Judo. These techniques are modified to be applicable for Pankration, MMA fighting (Mixed Martial Arts) and Submission wrestling as a sport. Our submission wrestling classes are a subsection of our Pankration curriculum.
It is the blending of our striking within the grappling context that makes our style unique and distinctive.
Whether it is the blending of striking and grappling to and from clinching, to take-downs, to ground fighting with submissions, our style is geared towards practicality.
Since our style and curriculum has a broad range of techniques, the individual student has the ability and potential to express their skills to the fullest degree.
Our classes provide an excellent physical workout developing muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio vascular fitness and flexibility. In the process of training and getting in great shape, the student will be learning techniques that are useful for self-defence and sport.
