Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a grappling martial art that barrows strategies, techniques and principles from a wide array of arts and backgrounds. The very best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools have a curriculum that reflects the diverse array of techniques and applications of this amazing art. In Dutchess County the school that stands head and shoulders above the competition is Precision Mixed Martial Arts in LaGrangeville, NY.
Precision’s Jiu-Jitsu program takes a holistic approach to teaching the gentle art. The classes in our Dutchess County facility are equally split between gi, or kimono, classes and no-gi (shorts and t-shirt) sessions. The gi is important in terms of self defense since students learn how to deal with an attacker grabbing their clothing. Additionally, they learn to use an attacker’s own clothes against them by manipulating them into a myriad of throws and chokes. The gi also allows more attacking options making for a slower and more technical art form. No-gi classes are equally important though. During the warm weather months an attacker may not have attire that can be grabbed or manipulated. Also, training without the gi makes things more slippery, requiring students to sharpen and tighten their attacks in order to be successful. Students who aspire to compete in mixed martial arts competition will benefit from the no-gi jiu-jitsu training as well since all MMA bouts are contested shirtless. Precision MMA is one of the only jiu-jitsu schools in Dutchess County that equally distributes their classes between gi and no-gi.
Another major benefit that Precision brings to the Dutchess County Jiu-Jitsu scene is the element of throws, trips, wrestling and takedowns. It should be obvious that a grappling based martial arts should include takedowns, but sadly many jiu-jitsu schools across Dutchess County completely neglect them. By focusing solely on the ground without having the means to bring the fight there they are giving students a false self of security. Like having a high powered rifle without any ammunition – ground fighting is only as effective as your takedowns. As a result, Precision trains takedowns daily. All grappling begins on the feet, just as any real fight does. Additionally, Precision has brought in some of the top wrestlers and judo black belts in Dutchess County to fill in the gaps in the takedown game. Jiu-Jitsu fighters are widely known for having less than stellar takedowns compared to Judokas and wrestlers, but at Precision we get the best of both worlds. Elite ground fighting with incredible throws and wrestling all under one Dutchess County roof.
