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. 

Dutchess County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers a FREE 30 day trial and private lesson. Give us a call at 845-392-8495, email us at or go to

MMA in Pleasant Valley is a fast growing sport that is exploding into the main stream.  Many current fighters come from a specific background like boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Muay Thai.  A new and exciting fighter is emerging.  Many new fighters cross train in many disciplines at the same time.  They have no single, discernible background.  They are start to finish MMA fighters.  MMA in Pleasant Valley offers classes in many martial arts in one location.  It had knowledgeable coaches in every area that creates a great place to learn and grow on your martial arts journey.

This new breed of MMA fighter is a recent phenomenon.  They are not quite near the top of the sport yet, but many of them are moving up its rank rapidly.  People that started training when they were in their late teens or early adult years get to hear the roar of the crowd and participate in a professional sport.  Could you say that about any other big time athletic event?  Within a few years the older set of MMA fighters will have retired and we will have the full ascension of the MMA fighter as an athlete who trained in the sport from the start.

For most of my life I had very little in the way of interest in Martial Arts.  The idea of being able to defend myself was one I could get behind, but traditional martial arts didn’t seem to provide that.  Then Mixed Martial Arts came along.  From the start Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Pleasant Valley practitioners had a big advantage and ended up winning the majority of the events.  Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling and Judo were also successful in early MMA and continue to be a big part of many fighters repertoire.  After I began to watch MMA I realized the value of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  For the first time I witnessed a Martial Art that is highly effective for self-defense.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Pleasant Valley offers this great martial art. 

The main principles behind Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are economy of motion and leverage.  The stress is on not doing moves that will make you expend all your energy for little gains, but rather on doing movements that use momentum and leverage to maximize results.  The proper application of leverage allows for a smaller or weaker opponent to not only move a larger and stronger opponent, but also to maintian control over them when the get to a more advantageous position.  To see an average sized  man beat a big and muscled opponent who knows how to fight is not something you will forget soon.  At first appearances it goes against what would be predicted by most observers.  When the normal sized man submits the larger man with superior grappling, all thoughts of training another martial art go out the window.  This normal sized man goes by many names.  Royce and Helio Gracie all submitted larger opponents over their long and legendary careers.  Many others have followed in their footsteps and have gone on to dominate.  Some of the dominance of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is lost on newer fans of MMA because of the introduction of weight classes and the fact that every fighter trains BJJ.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Pleasant Valley offers classes in this amazing art seven days a week.  We pride ourselves on offering an incredible martial arts experience, which is why we are the only Hudson Valley MMA gym which offers a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.  We are confident in our program and stand behind what we teach.

This past weekend  UFC Veteran Javier Vazquez had an amazing seminar at Precision MMA in Lagrange.  Poughkeepsie MMA always brings in the best minds in the BJJ and MMA worlds to offer new and exciting insights. The grappling world is evolving at an astounding  rate and MMA in Poughkeepsie is right in the mix.  The seminar centered on MMA in Poughkeepsie, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and self defense.  Javier Vazquez showed some great techniques that can be used in many scenarios both on and off the mat.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was founded as a means of self-defense and is extremely effective in both  a street fight scenarios and MMA. The seminar was applicable to ever phase of the game.

The focus of the seminar was on punch defense from the bottom.  A main concern in all the moves was to first avoid damage and to second escape back to a better position.  The ideas behind the moves are as old as the foundations of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but the moves themselves are a relatively new evolution in grappling.  All the techniques that Javier Vazquez showed have ideas that are the core of BJJ.  Economy of motion and the proper application of leverage are the crux of not only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but everything that Javier Vazquez showed.   BJJ is always highly effective in self-defense scenarios and now is becoming even more effective with the addition of these new moves.  

At MMA in Poughkeepsie the classes are geared towards realistic fighting scenarios for both the real world and MMA.  All the classes are done in a safe environment that encourages learning.  We pride ourselves on offering an incredible martial arts experience, which is why we are the only Hudson Valley MMA gym which offers a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.  We are confident in our program and stand behind what we teach.

A few years back I was looking for an interesting and fun way to get in shape.  The typical gym experience left a lot to be desired for me.  I did not feel mentally engaged in the slightest and would stop going after a few weeks.  I was just becoming a fan of Mixed Martial Arts and became interested in trying it out. The main problem was location. I live in Pleasant Valley, but there was no MMA in Pleasant Valley.    If I wanted to train MMA, I had to travel.  I soon found a gym that was exactly what I needed.  A knowledgeable staff that was great for beginner, intermediate or expert.  Precision MMA was the answer for me.

Precision MMA was located in Fishkill at the time.  Everyday I would drive twenty or more minutes to Precision MMA and train. I did Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA all in one location.  I lost weight and gained technical ability very quickly.  I made friends with many of my fellow students and trainers that have lasted for all the years since I joined.  I trained at Precision MMA while attending college full time. The long drive never felt taxing or draining.  Precision MMA became a place that always was comfortable and inviting to me.  It never became a chore to come and train.  All the problems that had plagued my earlier attempts to get in shape at traditional gyms were put behind me by the training at Precision MMA

Precision MMA eventually moved from Fishkill to Lagrangeville.  It is now located right near Arlington High School.  I could not have been happier about this development.  I now only had to get on the Taconic for a few minutes and be at the best MMA gym in the Pleasant Valley area.  If it was worth traveling twenty minutes to Precision MMA, it was certainly  worth traveling less than ten minutes.  The new location has everything the old one had and more. The new location boasts a full size boxing ring, more mat space than you will know what to do with and an all around state of the art training facility.

If you live in Pleasant Valley and are interested in a great place to get in shape and learn MMA or are tired of the lack of results you are getting from a typical gym experience, come down and try our 30 day FREE trial.  And don’t forget to ask about our FREE intro lesson.
