If you’ve always wanted to try mixed martial arts, but didn’t like the idea of getting hit in the face, we feel your pain.
Most MMA schools think the only way to teach their students how to fight is having them toss on boxing gloves and swing for the fences.
Not only is this counter-productive and dangerous, but it also hinders the learning process and more often then not, results in unnecessary injuries.
At Ivey League, most of our students have families and jobs and simply can’t afford to leave the gym with a black eye.
Our grappling and sparring instruction is always conducted with utmost control and – most importantly – only when your instructor determines you are truly ready.
At that time, you’ll only be sparring at a level you can handle, with your instructor or another advanced student, so that you can get comfortable in small steps.
The idea is to train smart and have fun, not get beat up.
Only our amateur and professional fighters do hard sparring to prepare themselves for the conditions inside the cage.
At Ivey League MMA, your safety is always our number one concern AND turning you into the best fighter we can, of course…
Our mission here at Ivey League MMA is to see you succeed.
We want you to reach all of your fitness and fighting goals and we’re only happy when you’re happy.

I highly recommend Danny Ives as a coach. He has played a very significant role in my growth as a Mixed Martial Artist and was my first real Jiu Jitsu/MMA instructor.
Throughout my time in the UFC and IFL I’ve used many principles and techniques he taught me, which included me being awarded two submission of the night honors in the IFL as well as two IFL World Team titles.
I won my UFC debut by submission also, and alot of it goes back to my time spent studying under Danny in the past. To this day I still give Danny phone calls when I have technique questions. I owe alot to him as an instructor and friend.

To say this past weekend was big for Ivey League would be an understatement that's for sure. We had students fighting in both MMA and Boxing events as well as competing in Grappling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). All in all we went 3-0 in fights and snagged numerous medals at the NAGA Tournament in NJ. Definitely one of our more successful weekends, and as a coach I couldn't be prouder. NAGA NJ Tournament Results I'll start off talking about those who took to the grappling mats at the NAGA.
