Women are no strangers to violence. It’s not rare that we hear of women being victimized in modern society. The statistics of women experiencing sexual or physical violence are scary and a true realization that women aren’t being encouraged to be properly taught how to defend themselves in confrontations or assaults. While abuse may happen to anyone, women are by far the more frequent victims of abuse. This is the optimal reason of why learning to protect yourself against harm is important. Women shouldn’t rely solely on male figures, groups or weapons to defend themselves, they should be mentally and physically prepared to defend against attacks if need be. Men are often viewed as stronger and bigger, which may often be the case in most confrontations, but knowing how to use your opponent’s mechanics against them is key to surviving and protecting yourself in any situation. Brazilian  Jiu-jitsu is a martial art that teaches smaller individuals how to use bigger opponent’s height, weight and movement to their advantage. This sport enables women to fight off attackers of any size and allows them to build confidence, a key to gaining advantage in violent engagements. Women don’t have to feel helpless in attacks or fall victim to physical and sexual abuse, with the proper instruction and environment, individuals can be given the tools to defend themselves. At Precision Boxing and MMA, we offer various disciplines that teach self-defense, satisfying multiple ambitions of our practitioners. Our BJJ class is taught by  knowledgeable instructors of the sport in an accepting, controlled environment. BJJ teaches individuals how to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations by empowering students with knowledge and self defense techniques. If you’re interested in learning a sport that’ll teach you self-defense and promote confidence Call 845-392-8495 or visit http://www.precisionmixedmartialarts.com Women Training BJJ for Self Defense

Approaching older age may bring many senior health problems and challenges that can have a negative impact on an individual’s daily activities. Being aware of these issues and how you can take the necessary steps to prevent them will result in a long well-balanced, healthy lifestyle. Being both physically active and eating a healthy diet is key to staying in shape and managing risks that present themselves in senior years. Developing osteoporosis and diabetes are two of the most common risks in older age caused by inactivity that can lead to severe pain and a lower quality of life. Regular exercise can prevent these health issues by encouraging movement and improving stiff joints. Strength and flexibility training are vital to maintaining the proper functionality of joints to reduce or prevent pain. Picking a new sport at an older age may seem intimating, especially if health issues are already present. It’s important to understand that most health issues can be prevented or managed with exercise. Older individuals usually express concerns that they’re too old to partake in a new sport or fitness gym. However, this is not true. Joining a fitness gym or new sport is not limited to a specific age group. In fact, it promotes a healthy life by exercise, expands social circles and acts as a stress reliever. Training boxing or MMA increases flexibility, endurance, strength and most importantly the quality of one’s health. At Precision Boxing & MMA in Poughkeepsie, New York we offer training in various disciplines for all age groups in a fun, friendly controlled environment. Our students come from all walks of life and range from many different age groups.

Lack of physical and mental exercise can result in weight gain, fatigue, and poor motivation. An inactive lifestyle will diminish your ability to succeed in even the smallest of tasks and is detrimental to your overall health. Physical inactivity is the leading factor in weight gain and can contribute to depression and anxiety. The less daily exercise performed by individuals puts them at high risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, two of the leading causes of preventable deaths in America. Adapting an active lifestyle by picking up a sport is one of the easiest methods to kick bad habits, promote weight loss, cure depression and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

This weekend Precision Mixed Martial Arts head coach Brian McLaughlin made the journey to Las Vegas to corner his student Jim Miller in his UFC 200 bout against Takanori Gomi.  The former Pride and Shooto champion, Gomi is widely regarded as one of the best lightweight fighters of all time.  Jim was in a must win situation against a very dangerous opponent, but rose to the occasion in dramatic fashion.

Jim followed the game plan perfectly and showed off his world class Brazilian Jiu-jitsu taking the back and quickly scoring a crowd pleasing TKO stoppage victory.  This victory made Jim the first fighter in UFC history to earn victories at both UFC 100 and UFC 200!
