Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has its foundations in one man.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been passed along to many, and much has been added to this vast store of knowledge.  Every new mind that approaches this deeply fascinating art brings something new to it, as well as taking away valuable lessons.  This blend of solid foundation and constant evolution, of ancient and modern, has created the worlds greatest Martial Art for self-defense and life skills.  No other art has offered so much to a student.  No other art delivers on the promise of martial arts.

Helio Gracie was the founderHelio Gracie laid down the foundations in an interesting way.  Gracie observed his older brothers learning traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.  He could not take part in the classes due to health concerns.  He was a small and frail child who wasn’t not going to develop into any sort of amazing physical specimen as a man.  What Helio Gracie lacked in natural physical prowess, he more than made up for in mental acuity.  His careful  study of the techniques his brothers were learning didn’t make itself  apparent for several years.  When it was finally revealed what Gracie had perfected, and in some cases invented, people flocked to his school.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses leverage and patience to beat your opponent.  Leverage enables a weaker opponent to beat a stronger opponent.  Patience allows a slower opponent to conserve energy and wait for the right moment to move on the faster opponent.  Indeed, Gracie made a career of winning no-holds-barred matches against fighters that were more physically gifted than him.  His contributions to the martial arts of second to none. 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has grown from this already solid foundation.  It has incorporated so many other techniques from Greco-Roman Wrestling, Free Style Wrestling, Sambo and Judo.  It has had so many great minds add to it.  Rolls Gracie, Royler Gracie, Eddie Bravo, Jean-Jacques Machado, Marcelo Garcia and so many more have given so much to this amazing martial art.  They all bring something new to the table.  You can become apart of this long tradition of learning and growing through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Self-Confidence is a big part of the success one can achieve.  Many people suffer from a crippling lack of confidence.  On the other hand many people can be crushed by the weight of there own massive ego.  An more accurate view of oneself is somewhere in between these two extremes. On either of these ends of the spectrum problems arise.  Often times a person has both of these problems, they just come out in different settings or with different people around.  True confidence is there all the time, regardless of setting. This is all based on a lack of knowledge of your own abilities.  The martial arts can be a great place to learn about yourself and gain self-confidence, and no martial art delivers as much in this area as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Millbrook.

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.
