When I first moved to Maryland , I was struggling to find a gym that I felt comfortable in , that could cater to my schedule and my specific needs. I stumbled upon Ivey league by word of mouth and followed those great recommendations to the gym to try it out. I immediately felt at home, the knowledgeable ,warm , patient staff made me feel Welcomed. I ended up driving 30 minutes everyday just to work out and train , with all the high level , highly experienced coaches that teach and work out there .This gym is clean, organized and family friendly . I highly recommend this gym to anyone that is an aspiring fighter, or just looking to get a good old fashioned work out in. I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!read more

I've been training off and on at Ivey League for about 4 years now, and I always feel welcome and safe. The owner, Danny Ives, as well as his employees, have always been more than kind to me, in and out of class. There are plenty of different classes and class times to choose from, and I recommend this school to anyone and everyone interested in MMA/grappling/kickboxing in the area. This is a great place to relax and learn a new skill, but I also know that they have created some fierce competitors as well.read more

Absolutely one of my favorite places to cross train when I can. Their schedule is extremely accommodating, their coaches are knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging. And when it comes time to work, they will certainly help you reach levels in your journey that you never thought possible. So whether you're an absolute newcomer to the arts, or you've been training for many years like myself, Master Danny, Miss T and the rest of the crew will absolutely get you to your chosen destination. - George M | York MMA Academyread more

Ivey League MMA has been such an amazing find for our family. All of the staff are super helpful and encouraging and they really help pull kids out of their shell while teaching successful strategies for all aspects of their lives not just martial arts training. We have participated in children’s and adult classes as well as after school and various camps. Highly recommend this place and challenge you to find a more quality caring group of people!read more

The coaches and staff at Ivey League are phenomenal! Our daughter started classes there when she was in Kindergarten. Coach Danny and Coach Teresa were amazing with her. She was shy and very passive but they were able to develop her self confidence and skills to the point that she not only enjoyed MMA she wanted to compete in the competitions! She's now a thriving teenager with a positive attitude about self confidence and living a healthy, physically fit lifestyle. We owe a good part of that to Ivey League's training. They believe in the kids they teach and it really shows.read more

They have an awesome staff who are understanding to each person's needs and a clean facility. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for martial arts training.read more

We brought our daughter to Ivey League 1 year ago. My daughter is a very passive easy going kid. Being 12 years old and in middle school, the stress of kids bullying her was getting to be an everyday occurrence. When we brought her to Ivey League she was nervous and not wanting to stay, that’s where the Coaches and Staff came in. They treated her like she has been there for years, made her comfortable and got her involved in the class. That evening she wanted to sign up and become part of where she is today. She has since started competing and has won a gold metal. Her confidence is incredible and we owe it to the staff at Ivey League for getting her out of her shell. They believe in teamwork and get the students involved to help each other. My daughter has a whole new group of friends and then make her feel like family. I highly recommend Ivy League!read more

Our son has been a fan and participant of martial arts since his junior high days in Nebraska and has been a part of several different gyms, under various leaders. As an adult, now living in Maryland, he joined Ivey League Mixed Martial Arts. Several years ago he invited us to visit the gym and introduced his mother and I to the owners, Danny and Teresa Ives. We knew immediately that he had found another ‘family’ and I cannot stress that truth enough ‘FAMILY’. Ivey League Mixed Martial Arts isn’t just a ‘gym’; a way for the Ives’ to create an income - it is ‘family’ who trains hard, with determination and a life-goal of excellences; all while knowing and caring about one another, . Now not only is our son a member of Ivey League, so are three of our grandchildren. On every trip to Maryland to visit family - we love to visit our extended family as well and so we go to the gym and to share with Danny and Teresa. If you’re looking for Mixed Martial Arts training facility for yourself, and your family, you’ve found it here. Join up today - and your life will be changed forever.read more

Personable and knowledgeable coaches who are very willing to help you learn and push yourself, and an overall great MMA gym. They have everyone from people who train weekends to people who compete, and everyone there is more than willing to help you achieve your own goals within mixed martial arts. The facility is nice and clean every single time, the classes are aptly paced and the technique is on point, and they have plenty of equipment for others to utilize for their own benefits.read more

I’ve been kickboxing on and off since i was 7 years old I always try to stop in and check out different gyms when im traveling. I looked this place up online and decided to try them out. As soon as i walked through the door I was greeted by the owner Danny Ives, who was standing there with a broom in his hands sweeping the mats Coach Danny was extremely friendly and welcoming. He stopped what he was doing and took the time to give me a tour of his gym and told me the story of how he ended up teaching MMA in Annapolis. I couldn’t tell from the outside but it’s actually two separate training floors. The upstairs is painted in a brighter color and I could tell this was the more kids/family training environment. The downstairs training room was night and day different, with way more of a “Hardcore” look and feel to it. I liked the downstairs room more personally. Also, most of the equipment is downstairs. They had a lot of stuff people could use on their own time like punching bags, a full weight room, bikes, treadmills and kettlebells. They have a very clean and well organized layout, which was refreshing because most gyms are dirty and smell like an old sock. I can't say enough good things about this place and even though I was only visiting for a few days I learned so much and never once felt like an outsider. Egos are checked at the door unlike some other places I've been to. You owe it to yourself to check this place out if you are looking for a home to train Kickboxing or Jiu Jitsu. Top Notch.read more

A great place to train! I joined this MMA gym as a fun alternative to the normal everyday weightlifting/cardio class gym. I was out of shape and needed to lose weight. Ivey League helped me to get into the best shape of my life and I’ve had a blast doing it. The instructors are amazing, and I've made some great lifelong friends along the way. My goal was never to become a MMA fighter, but I’ve certainly enjoyed getting to know the pros and those just starting out and supporting them throughout their fighting careers. I've also learned some great MMA moves and techniques that I never imagined myself doing.read more

Martial arts is more than punch kick block! It is about empowering our youth to be better than they were yesterday and to grow up to be better than we are. Professor Ives and his team are dedicated to teaching the character lessons that are needed to succeed and grow in today's world. They are passionate about what they do and it shows! Great program for kids and adults as well!read more

Master Ives and his awesome team of instructors are the best you'll find for martial arts anywhere, especially for children. My two younger siblings (now 8 and 10) started with Ivey League as beginner white belts a little over two years ago and It's truly been life changing for both of them. The journey they have taken with Master Danny Ives and the Ivey League MMA team has provided them with excellent, realistic self-defense and martial arts skills, but it's also increased their level of confidence, leadership and personal integrity towards others. This was key for my younger brother who'd been the target of bullies for years. What I really like about the kids program at IL (Adult program as well) is that they continue to evolve and improve their classes year over year to better enrich the quality of the instruction while at the same time keeping it both fun and interesting for the students. It's now a whole family activity because both my dad and I started training as well. We are so lucky to have found Master Danny and his crew of amazing coaches and staff. Go Ivey League!read more

Can't say enough good things about Ivey League MMA. My daughter has been a student here for almost exactly a year and absolutely loves it - and we love how it has helped her. She is more focused, confident, coordinated, and, of course, way stronger and learning great skills. The coaches are all extremely good with kids and good at teaching, keeping things fun and high-energy but also disciplined. Everyone here is professional, welcoming, inclusive, and friendly, and they really are like family. The summer camp is amazing, too.read more

Though only in the area for a short two week period, Ivey League ensured I had the greatest possible experience at their gym. Not only was I given a free trial with t-shirt, they truly dedicated time and expertise to me as a student. Coach Joe and Sebastian were both professional, knowledgeable, and of the highest quality and standard I would expect from an MMA training facility. I finished every 1-hr kickboxing lesson wanting to keep working and learning, and I left wishing I still lived in Maryland. Thanks again to the staff and coaches at Ivey League, and I hope I can return one day!read more

New Breed Millersville Results for Ivey League MMA

This past weekend we sent a small team of students to compete at The New Breed Tournament, located just a hop, skip and jump from Ivey League. We’re lucky to have something so close to compete in. Most of the time we end up driving for hours on end to places like NYC, Virginia Beach and NC. The New Breed is a smaller, much more local grappling/Jiu Jitsu tournament. We use tournaments like this more for our beginner level students or those in need of competitive mat time but without the pressure of competing in front of a huge crowd in a venue far away. Below you'll find a list of the students who competed at The New Breed and what place they came in (First place winners are in … Click Here to View Full Post »
