Precision MMA has the best kids program in the Hudson Valley!

If someone asked you to list the benefit of Martial Arts training, the most common replies will likely be self-defense and physical fitness.

From experience, I can tell you that another benefit that’s just as – if not more – important as those, is self-esteem.

A lack of self-esteem can affect every aspect of your life and can hold you back from realizing your true potential. How can Martial Arts help you build self-esteem?

  • Confidence. First and foremost, confidence functions as a foundation for self-esteem. Making it through hard training, losing weight, competing against other Martial Artists and attending class regularly are all difficult endeavors that can be accomplished with dedication. Through those types of accomplishments, you will feel more confident in everyday life.
  • Physical Fitness. A healthy body looks and feels good, both physically and mentally. Feeling and looking fit will make you feel better about yourself because you’ll know all the hard work you put in to getting there. In addition, you will sleep better at night, adding to your already increased feelings of health and fitness.
  • Self Defense. While the mantra of self-defense is to avoid a physical confrontation whenever possible, your Martial Arts training will give you the confidence to know that you can handle yourself should the need arise. Most bullies look for easy targets – your Martial Arts training will ensure that you don’t fall into that category.
  • Sense of Accomplishment. Speaking from experience, the sense of accomplishment you will enjoy from Martial Arts training is hard to describe. The training, discipline and endurance required make the milestones of your Martial Arts journey all the more important. The day I received my Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will forever be at the top of my list of accomplishments.
  • Discipline. Discipline is the backbone of any successful endeavor. If you’re not disciplined already, you will become so if you start training Martial Arts and stick with it. Difficult endeavors require sacrifice, and sticking to those sacrifices requires discipline. That discipline will feed back into everything listed above. All of these benefits are interrelated and affect each other. That’s an important fact to remember.

This article is the first of several I hope to share with you on the subject of Martial Arts training and the many ways it can have tremendously positive effects on your life, both in and out of the gym.

See you on the mats.

Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu

Precision MMA‘s Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu team recently competed at the New York State Grappling Championship in Albany, NY.  Precision MMA has long been known as one of the best Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu teams on the local circuit, but this was a big step up in competition.  Competitors traveled close to 100 miles and did not plan on going home empty handed – and they certainly didn’t.

With multiple first place finishes the team scored highlight worthy submissions as well as high flying takedowns and throws.  Precision’s Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu team included teenagers, college students and adults in their 30’s and 40’s all competing side by side.

Their efforts did not go unnoticed, once all the scores were tallied Precision MMA took 3rd in the state wide tournament.  The tournament was organized by NAGA – the North American Grappling Association, the largest grappling circuit in the world today.  This was their largest and most prestigious tournament in the state of New York.

Precision MMA was the only Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu to rank in the top 10.  This performance is a reflection of the elite black belt instruction which Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu students receive on a daily basis at Precision MMA.

If you would like to train with the top Poughkeepsie jiu-jitsu team check out Precision MMA FREE for 30 Days.  Just call 845-392-8495 or visit to get started.
