Precision Martial Arts for Kids
“Our mission is to be self-directed, lifelong martial artists who willingly contribute to their community and lead passionate, purposeful lives.”
At Precision we view martial arts as a tool to unlock your child’s highest potential. In a world where kids are glued to smartphones and video games, we seek to break kids out of the passive and inactive world that our modern technology and convenience has created. Too often kids are not thinking, not moving and not challenged. Martial arts breaks the mold and forces kids out of this cycle by exciting them physically, sparking their creativity and testing their limits.
Our Kids Program Can Be Divided into Two Groups: Grappling & Striking.
Precision is not a “belt factory” where kids are promoted every week simply for attending class. In addition to our martial arts requirements Precision kids must demonstrate good effort at home, in school and in their communities. Every child at Precision MMA completes community service as part of the promotion process since we believe that martial artists are not just good fighters, but role models for others.
Many karate schools make forms or “kata” the focus of their striking program. These are choreographed punches and kicks in the air against imaginary opponents; while they may look flashy they are not practical against resisting opponents. At Precision our kids learn striking that works in the real world. We aren’t interested in breaking boards or looking flashy, the striking at Precision teaches techniques that will stop someone from hurting them.
A Confident Child is a Successful Child
What Parents are Saying About Precision:
“My daughters, Marissa and Caitlin, began training with Professor Brian McLaughlin in 2008. Brian provided world-class instruction while embracing a safe and collaborative team environment at Precision MMA. Marissa and Caitlin today are jiu-jitsu coaches as a result of the solid foundation they built at Precision MMA. If you’re in the Hudson Valley, I’d highly recommend Precision MMA!”
“As a mom I have to say that Precision MMA is the best kept secret of the Hudson Valley. My son has trained in other Martial Arts schools for a total of 7 years and they can’t compare to Precision, I am in awe not only of the instructors but also the members @ Precision. There is no competition between training partners and everyone has a respect and a genuine want for you to succeed. They couldn’t be more giving! The instructors are constantly training and learning themselves which brings a level of excitement that keeps him coming home from class excited to return.”
