Precision MMA Movie Review
“The Smashing Machine”

The Smashing Machine offers a look at the sport of mixed martial arts from the perspective of Mark Kerr.  A juggernaut of a man, Kerr was at one point the most feared man in the sport of MMA.  The film’s title is an allusion to the nickname Kerr earned while fighting in Brazil and completely mauling the competition.  Kerr is a throwback from the time of true no holds barred.  When he began his career bouts were contested bareknuckle, tactics such as headbutts were not only legal but encouraged.  The filmmakers travel deep into Kerr’s psyche and expose his inner most fear, strength, gameness and vulnerability. This is definitely an intense film, but a must see for all Poughkeepsie MMA fans.

                Kerr entered mixed martial arts (MMA) as a champion wrestler who was always one step away from realizing his Olympic dream.  He fought not for the competition or inner satisfaction, but rather out of a sense of desperation.  He had invested his entire life in a sport that offered no monetary reward.  He saw fighting as a way to make money off his wrestling skills.  Despite being a Goliath, Kerr speaks of the intense anxiety that overcame him before his first bout.  His nerves were so uncontrollable he couldn’t even keep down a glass of water.  The only sensation which outweighs the fear of the fight is the thrill of victory.  Kerr talks about being ignited by the roar of the crowd and the high of winning.  Kerr would go on to win the UFC title and find success in Pride.  Kerr was so imposing that, on multiple occasions, after he hit his opponents they would crawl out of the ring and refuse to fight him.  He didn’t simply make them quit, they ran for their life. 

                However, despite his pugilistic omnipotence in the ring, outside Kerr is a soft spoken and timid man plagued by deep seeded personal demons.  The wear and tear of training and accumulation lifetime of injuries leaves Kerr with a sever painkiller addiction, one that nearly takes his life.  The cameras are rolling when friends gather at Kerr’s bedside, following an overdose, begging him to stop his destructive lifestyle. 

                The film shows Kerr as a sympathetic character whose life is a tumultuous swing from extraordinary successes to devastating lows.   The film’s climax is the Pride Open Weight Grand Prix where Mark will be competing for a grand prize of $200,000. However, in order to win he knows he may have to go up against his best friend and training partner – Mark Coleman.

                The Smashing Machine is a must see for true fight enthusiasts. For Poughkeepsie MMA fans it shows the ugly side of fighting, past the glitz and glamor or stardom, the true grind.  Kerr deals with training partners not showing up, fights getting cancelled and rules being broken.  He struggles with his diabetes and endless laundry list of injuries.  He shows how overwhelmingly stressful a fight can be and crazy girlfriends and personal demons run rampant once fight time approaches.  He reveals that no matter how confident, strong, or well prepared a fighter may seem on the surface they are haunted by thoughts of inadequacy, self-doubt and fear.

Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an art that has it’s roots in Japanese grappling style Judo.  Judo, while still effective, has become very centered on sport and less on self-defense.  Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has taken aspects of Judo and expanded them and really worked on areas that have been neglected by many traditional martial arts.  What happens when a fight gets taken to the ground?  What if someone larger or stronger fights me? What if someone gets on top of me and starts teeing off?  These questions are not fun to contemplate, but they are necessary for anyone who takes self-defense seriously.  Unfortunately many Martial Arts have no answer for these obstacles.  Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can answer these questions, in fact that is what Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has as a primary focus. 

Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches the core principles of BJJ.  The proper application of leverage is the only way a smaller and weaker opponent can defeat a larger and stronger one.  In classes at Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the students are put into real fight situations.  In a safe and instructive manner you will learn how to work your way out of many bad situations.  You will learn to not only be safe in bad spots, but to have a certain level of comfort there.

Lagrange Family Martial Arts has children’s classes seven days a week.  Every student is given a chance to excel in the martial arts with the qualified instructors that will give your children the one-on-one attention necessary for learning.  The kid’s program will instill and nurture important values in your child such as being goal oriented, maintaining high levels of physical fitness, discipline, determination, focus and respect for authority.  These essential lessons can be learned by a child while their parents are also going on their own martial arts journey.  This shared experience will deepen the impact and really reenforce the importance of what the children are learning. 

Time spent around caring and mindful adults is one of the most important influences in a child’s socialization and development. Children who lack proper supervision are far more likely to get into trouble and have similar problems as an adult. Many experts point to lack of proper adult supervision as the number one predictor of juvenile delinquency.  Children cannot be expected to make wise or informed decisions, but the habits they form as children will follow them into their adult years.  If a child looks to deviant peer groups or negative role models, their already shortsighted decision-making can become simply scary. People talk about role models and how hard it can be to find a positive one.  Reliance on some distant and aloof sports star or paparazzi-hounded pop singer as a role model leaves to much to chance.  A child must often be shown the right path, at least initially, and can’t be expected to know who will fail them and who will be a positive influence in their life.  Children should ideally be looking to their parents and teachers as the real role models.  The hectic schedule of a modern family can leave little time for the strengthening of these important societal bonds.  Time must be set aside to forge these essential Familial links. 

Lagrange Family Martial Arts provides a setting that can have your child consistently engaged in positive activities under the tutelage of knowledgeable and caring instructors.  Instead of spending their free time playing video games, hanging out or surfing the internet, they will be in an environment that encourages good citizenship and reenforces the kind of constructive socialization that is necessary for a happy and successful adult life.  Lagrange Family Martial Arts will be a place that your child can attend regularly and with enthusiasm.

Hyde Park Women’s Fitness

Hyde Park Women’s Fitness offers a great workout for women.  Hyde Park Women’s Fitness has some unique qualities that separate it from other gyms and workouts.  Many of these other places are based off of gimmicky trends and workout crazes.  How money is spent every year on exercise and diet supplements?  How many of those products promise awesome results instantly or with little to no effort?  It is no wonder that so many walk away from these programs with no results or they revert to their old lifestyle in no time.   Many of these workout regimens place little emphasis on changing your lifestyle, it is merely a class that is going to be a short term phase.  This boom and bust cycle of fitness is sometimes more harmful than good.  So the fads and trendy stuff needs to stop.   At the end of it all hard work, exercise, proper dieting and simply showing up is what will get you results that are sustainable.  The trick is making exercise bearable.
