Students from all walks of life train at Precision MMA in LaGrangeville, NY.  However, often times women worry that training MMA will be too intimidating or that they won’t be welcome at Precision.  In fact nothing could be further from the truth, many women have benefited from the training at Precision MMA, but don’t take my word for it.  Here is a review of Precision MMA from college student Kristen Wichtendahl who takes part in Precision’s BJJ, Muay Thai and MMA classes.

“The coaches are very helpful, friendly, and will work with you to help you reach your goals. They have a lot of experience and are passionate about the art they are teaching, making it easier for students to learn. I didn’t expect to be there as much as I was, but after the first few classes I was addicted and would rather train here than anywhere else. The people are very friendly and make excellent training partners since they are always willing to help you with anything you don’t understand or something you just want to practice. I got a great work out and I always learned something new. I still go back to Precision when I am on breaks and I look forward to coming home just so I can train” – Kristen Wichtendahl

Dutchess County MMA

Dutchess County Jiu JItsu

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.

If you live in or around Dutchess county and have always dreamed of training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you have a unique opportunity before you.  Precision MMA is now offering a 30 Day FREE Trial for it’s Dutchess County Jiu-jitsu classes.  To get started call 845-392-8495 or visit http://www.poughkeepsiebrazilianjiu-jitsu.com to get started today on your Dutchess County Jiu-Jitsu journey.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu

Dutchess County MMA

Whenever a person chooses to spend a large amount of time engaged in an activity it is important that they ask themselves: “is this endeavor going to help me evolve as a human being?  Does it have a high probability of crossing over into other areas of my life and strengthening my overall character, or is this activity an isolated one which has little chance of affecting my outlook and improving my life as a whole?”  Out of all the endeavors one can choose to undertake, martial arts’ training is certainly one of those which has the greatest ability to impact multiple areas of a person’s life and help them to reach their highest personal potential.  There are many reasons for this, and many ways in which it can help people to overcome adversity, which we will look at in detail in this blog.

Martial arts’ training, like that offered at Precision Mixed Martial Arts in Dutchess County, New York, is an incredible vehicle for self-transformation.  Countless people have used martial arts to achieve different goals in their lives, many of which may not have been specifically limited to self-defense or physical fighting.  One of the reasons why martial arts’ training such as that offered at Precision MMA in Dutchess County can aid a person with multiple areas of their life is that it is multi-faceted in nature.  What I mean by this is that while it is a physical activity which can get one into much better shape and improve one’s general health, it also has a great ability to increase one’s confidence in different areas.  A truly good martial art taught by a truly good teacher should affect several areas of one’s life.  First, as mentioned, there is the purely physical side of the martial arts.  Many people have lost considerable weight, gained muscle mass, and improved blood pressure, cholesterol and general health through their martial arts’ training.  Martial arts taught at Precision MMA in Dutchess County, New York, such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Judo and Wrestling all improve one’s cardio vascular endurance, muscular strength, and flexibility, while also helping to burn calories and relieve stress.  Indeed, lives have been saved by the martial arts even aside from them being used for self-defense.  In particular, I have known more than one person who has lost over one hundred pounds through martial arts training, and who, with the help of a healthy diet, has brought down high levels of cholesterol and high blood pressure to manageable levels.  Doctors have much to thank martial arts’ instructors for when it comes to these gains, and experienced instructors like Dutchess Counties’ Brian McLaughlin have helped many people to achieve these goals.  At the end of a long day, martial arts’ training can also help one to relieve stress, which is one of the main causes of high blood pressure, and can promote a positive mood and help one to get a better night’s sleep.  In many cases like my own, training for upcoming tournaments where I needed to make a certain weight class has been motivation to lose more than twenty pounds and improve my diet and overall health.  In so many cases where martial artists have worked hard to make weight for competition the benefits of a leaner body and lower fat percentage have remained after the tournament or fight has ended and regardless of whether they have won or lost.  While losing weight is a great goal in itself simply for the benefit of being healthier, the extra motivation of knowing it may help one to win a competition is often crucial for those who might otherwise have difficulty summoning the drive to put in the work necessary to shed the pounds.  In addition, there is then the added benefit of looking better once one has lost the weight and gained muscle, and this leads to an overall better self-image and greater general self-esteem.

Aside from the health benefits, effective martial arts like those taught at Precision MMA in Dutchess County can improve one’s confidence by giving them the tools to defend themselves should they ever be the victim of a violent attack.  As the world around us becomes an increasingly dangerous place people are looking for more and more ways to feel secure.  Some have taken to carrying guns, but aside from the hoops one must go through to legally purchase and carry a firearm, there must always be the remaining fear that the weapon might not be close enough if needed during a surprise attack.  When one is trained in the martial arts one’s weapons are on them at all times, and there is an extra feeling of security in knowing that one need not rely on a tool to protect themselves should the need arise.  Others would rather base their hopes on the belief that the police will be able to protect them should anyone threaten them with violence, but again, this is relying on an outside force for security and the police cannot always save everyone who is in harm’s way. Reliance upon other people, a weapon or even a guard dog to keep one safe still does not treat the underlying sense of helplessness that comes with knowing deep down that one does not possess the bare handed skills for self preservation.  Martial arts’ training at Precision MMA in Dutchess County can change all that.  Someone who has put in long hours drilling techniques from martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai, both offered at Dutchess Counties’ Precision, will have the self-confidence necessary to sleep soundly in situations where other untrained individuals might feel insecure.

However, martial arts’ training like that available at Precision MMA in Dutchess County can raise one’s personal potential beyond health and a sense of self-security.  For those martial artists who have tested themselves in hard sparring sessions, grappling competitions, boxing, kickboxing or MMA fights, they reap even greater rewards.  Though hard sparring and different forms of competition are not for everyone, the physical pain and discomfort that one must endure to make it through these trials also breeds strength of character.  For example, I myself have torn the anterior cruciate ligaments in both of my knees through martial arts training, and I very much believe that I have come back stronger, not only in body but in mind, from these unfortunate injuries. Though the physical therapy necessary for recovery was itself separate from martial arts training, emotionally the training I had endured in my life gave me both the strength to believe I could make it through the therapy, as well as provided motivation for me to make it through so I could go back to training.  In this way, my martial arts training gave me both confidence and a sense of purpose in facing a difficult situation, and these situations need not be limited to physical injuries.  Whenever facing any challenge in life I can now ask myself “is this going to be more difficult than ACL rehab?  Is this going to be more difficult than coming back from rehabilitation to win martial arts competitions against those who have not injured their knees?”  And when the answer is “no”, I have a renewed sense of self-security and a greater belief that I can overcome whatever challenge is facing me.  I personally believe that great martial artists also have a greater chance of succeeding in all other areas of life because I see fighting as a microcosm of life.  Any difficulty we face, whether it is a job interview, moving to a new town or anything else, can feel like a fight to us, so having been through literal fights can make all the difference when it comes to our own confidence in dealing with these matters.  And when it comes to success, confidence is key in all situations, because the first step to achieving a goal is believing no matter the odds you will be triumphant.

Martial arts training is really something that everyone should be involved in, regardless of whether you plan on competing, or even feel as though you will never need these skills to defend yourself, classes like those taught at Precision MMA in Dutchess County, New York will help everyone to reach their personal potential more effectively.  The results that martial arts training can produce in overall physical health, as a tool for self-defense, and also as a measuring stick for all challenges faced in life are unique and cannot be found in many other activities like non-contact sports or in arts and crafts.  No matter what your life goals are, martial arts training at Precision MMA can help you achieve them by giving you a greater sense of self sufficiency when it comes to pushing beyond those breaking points others would often stop at.  Try us out for 30 free days and one thing is for sure, they’ll be better than the last 30.

So, what did Precision MMA fighters do last year?  A lot!  That’s why Precision MMA is the best MMA gym in the Hudson Valley.

First we had Mike “Pantene” Piekarski step into the ring in his professional MMA debut. After five amateur fights and a laundry list of grappling and muay thai wins Pantene was ready for the big time. His opponent was Eric Moore, a well-rounded prospect who was unbeaten in the sport. The fight went down as the co-main event at Xtreme Caged Combat in Philadelphia, PA. After three back and for the rounds the fight went to the judges score card and Mike got his hand raised!  Way to rep the Hudson Valley, Mike!

The next fighter to step into the cage for Precision was Brian Barry. After tasting victory in amateur wrestling and Jiu-Jitsu competition Brian entered the cage at the Mid Hudson Civic Center for a muay thai bout. His opponent was game and used a strong jab and head kicks to try and keep Brian at bay. However, Brian’s intensity and conditioning were the difference, allowing him to get inside and punish his opponent en route to a decision victory!  Brian Barry shows that our Hudson Valley MMA program is one of the best in the area!

That same day Precision MMA in the Hudson Valley’s competitors took to the mats at Grapplers Quest in New Jersey. Hassan Kahn took home a gold medal while Erik Dziuk earned a bronze medal after some outstanding submissions. Chris Stanley put for a strong effort but fell short on points in his first match.

More recently Precision sent 4 competitors to NAGA (North American Grapplin Association) World Championship and walked away with 3 medals. Larry McCord took home 2nd place scoring some nice submissions in the process. Kevin Enkler grabbed 3rd place after some hard fought victories and Big Drew grabbed 1st place making it a great outing for Precision! AJ Taurone showed incredible technique, but ran into a tough competitor and lost on points. He showed great skill and composure in his matches though and is sure to learn and come back stronger.

I am very proud of all the Precision competitors who showed heart and skill in both their preparation and performances. The hard work has been paying off! The unique thing about Precision is the variety of disciplines in which we have excelled. Very few schools can boast wins in grappling, muay thai and mixed martial arts all in the same month – great job guys!

If you haven’t noticed things are a little different around Precision.  No longer are we falling all over each other while rolling.  We now have a boxing ring, crash pads, pull up bars, benches, couches, surround sound and showers – in short, things have improved.  Undoubtedly, you’ve also noticed the change in the class structure.  Our instruction is no longer “one size fits all”.  Something that separates Precision from other Poughkeepsie MMA gyms is that instead, we have devised a thorough beginner curriculum for new students with focus on the fundamentals.  If you are just getting started these classes are designed to guide you by the hand through all the twists and turns of training. Rather than being “thrown to the wolves” the Poughkeepsie MMA classes emphasize proper technique, body positioning and strategy with less emphasis on sparring.  We also have more advanced classes which are specifically designed to challenge and excite the higher ranking students. This program will incorporate more unorthodox techniques with synergistic combinations and heavier emphasis on live training (sparring, rolling, ect.).  The intermediate program is the middle ground. Live training is included and a basic understanding is assumed, but the techniques are digestible for those still learning the ropes.  For grappling we hold off on the advanced classes until blue belt, for striking advancement is at the discretion of the sparring coaches (Karl, Derrick or Brian).  These changes may take some getting used to, but they will allow you to progress at the quickest and safest route possible.  Also, don’t forget to take advantage of your open mat time to drill the techniques learned during the week.  Now get to class!
