The future is very bright at Precision MMA.  Our kids program has taken off in a big way and the results are showing!  A unique feature of Precision’s children’s martial arts classes is the separation of beginner and advanced students.  This allows new students to work on the essentials without getting overwhelmed while the seasoned student is regularly challenged and excited by cutting edge techniques.

Here 9 year old Lucas Smith shows some very high level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu moves including leg drags, rubber guard and D’arce chokes.  These techniques are typically only seen by veteran adult champions, but in our small corner of LaGrangeville, NY they are being executed by children.

People seek martial arts training for various reasons whether it is for fitness, competition, or fun there is one circumstance that trumps them all, self defense. Having the ability to protects yourself and others in any given situation is a powerful tool that can help you sleep a little sounder. Many gyms promise these results with no avail. Here at Precision MMA not only are we taught by the best instructors in the Poughkeepsie area,  but also have reviews by real life people using their skills to defend themselves in the street.

Here is one review by KC Edenhofer, who by day is a SUNY NewPaltz R.D. and by night is a Security guard. Not long into his training at Precision MMA did KC use the skills he learned to end a fight that had occurred while on duty.

“I’ve been at Precision for two months and also work security back home. During one of my security jobs a person became irate and was ejected from the venue. When verbal de-escalation did not work, the person attacked me. Using the skills I learned here I was able to take him down safely while making sure no one else was in immediate harm. For the people that are on the fence about joining, jump over the fence and join us because it’s definitely the place to be!”

This weekend Precision MMA’s head coach Brian McLaughlin was awarded his first degree by Jamey Cruz (3rd degree black belt under Renzo Gracie).  Brian has been training under Jamey since 2008 and with this promotion Brian is now the highest ranking Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt in the Poughkeepsie region.

Precision MMA’s Brazilian Jiu-jitsu program has three active black belt instructors. Believe it or not, most Poughkeepsie BJJ programs are taught by an instructor below black belt level. Precision is the only school in the region which boasts this level of expertise, with our black belts possessing a combined 45 years of experience!
