When most people come to a Mixed Martial Arts gym they come with the assumption that they have to learn a smorgasbord of styles and that they will become a jack of all trades, master of none. Though Precision MMA has the resources and the facility to accommodate to teach their students multiple arts, it does not make us strangers to breeding specialized fighters.

One of the most effective ways to test your Martial Arts ability is to go out and compete against someone who focuses their training in one specific field.  It is a true assessment of your proficiency in the art when faced against someone who takes a fragment of your skill set and tangents off of it.  Though many of our members train in multiple disciplines they also come out victories when faced against such specialists.

The Precision MMA boxing team has showcased their knowledge and skill in the boxing community while carrying the “MMA stigma” multiple times. Whether it is winning the Golden Gloves or finding victory in local shows, our boxing team is always up for a challenge and is continuously seeking out new competition. We recently had back to back victories against West point Cadets and USA boxing open class fighters due to spectacular performances from Paul Maley (who is also a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu) and Brandon Clemente (who is part of the National Guard)brandon-boxing





October has also been a great month for our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competition team as well. We had several victories against experienced competitors in the New Jersey Submission Only Good Fight Tournament. Being a submission only tournament it attracts the best of the best finishers from multiple gyms. This however did not deter our grapplers from finding success.  After numerous hard fought battles Donny Castillo took home the Bronze in the NoGi Blue Belt Division while Christopher Stanley took the Gold in the NoGi Purple Belt Division. Both Donald and Christopher not only have made great strides in their Jiu-jitsu but also have become seasoned strikers during their time at Precision MMA.12189908_10205286908276966_1810348947194069366_n

Poughkeepsie Grapplers Take Home Victories at NAGA
Precision MMA Grapplers made the trip from their hometown of LaGrange, NY up to Albany for the North American Grappling Associations (NAGA) tournament.
The big star of the day was little Mikey Rooney. With only 18 months experience, Mikey was able to win both his intermediate divisions. Since he put on such a strong performance, the decision was made to bump his up to the Expert level – despite going up against grapplers with more than twice his experience, Mikey took home second place, even scoring a few crowd pleasing submissions along the way!

In the Adult Expert Division Jim Fitzpatrick made it to the finals after hitting jaw dropping armlocks and guillotine chokes. In a razor close match the judges awarded his opponent the victory, but “Fitz” had a strong performance looking for the submission from every angle in the toughest division of the day.
