For centuries people have been enhancing their lives through martial arts. The benefits of training can be boundless for people of any age, but can be especially fruitful for children. Enrolling your child in martial arts classes will help them sharpen their focus, build confidence and craft the mental tools necessary to work respectfully with others, believe in themselves and become a contributing member of a community. At Precision Boxing and MMA, we pride ourselves on continuing the deep rooted traditions of instilling lifelong values in our kids martial arts classes. We teach our kids methods to diffuse any potentially dangerous situations, while instilling self defense techniques that will work in real life situations if they have no other options. Most importantly, they learn to respect one another and how their behavior will affect those around them.  We’ve watched countless kids grow from children who misbehave in school, and fight with their siblings into conscious and respectful young adults. Below is a testimonial from long time Precision parent Patrick Simon. Patrick discusses how martial arts changed the lives of his children and why Precision was the best choice for the Simon family.

It’s been a busy summer for Precision Boxing and MMA competitors. All of the hard training within the gym was put to the test recently in mixed martial arts and Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitions across the Empire State.  The first person to step up for Precision was Billy “The Kid” Tasker.  Billy is a lifelong martial artist that began his journey as a child, earning a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.  From there Billy wrestled in high school and then finally found his way over to Precision where he excelled at Muay Thai and BJJ.

Billy was slated to compete at Cage Wars, one of the largest MMA promotions in Albany, New York. With head coaches Brian McLaughlin and Karl Nemeth in his corner, he felt confident no matter where the fight took place.

The fight began and Billy’s opponent charged after him with bad intentions only to be knocked clean off his sweep by  a well timed front kick. Billy capitalized on the opportunity and took his opponent to the ground locking up several submissions. His opponent was game and fought his way out and worked back to his feet.

After a quick exchange Billy was able to grab a hold of his opponent’s neck and press him into the cage, cutting off any avenues for escape. Here he was able to apply a tight guillotine choke and earn the first round submission.

 

Billy not only put on a spectacular performance in the cage, but set a terrific example for all other aspiring Poughkeepsie MMA fighters. He was disciplined in his training and never took any short cuts. He listened to his coaches every step of the way and displayed a martial artist’s honor and respect in victory.
