Yup, keeping busy here at Ivey League MMA that's for sure. Check out our blog to read about Jeff's fight, the in-house tournament and some brand new youth BJJ Yellow Belts! http://annapolismixedmartialarts.com/il-in-house-tournament-results-jeffs-fight-new-yellow-belts/?inf_contact_key=bce387142262cefe40effc5184184c749be98eeb1ffd7f50ff3e9d40df216e2c
Winter is here, or I should say almost here. The weather is getting colder, just the way I like it. And, just like every winter before, things are super busy here at Ivey League Mixed Martial Arts. Let's start with Ivey League's own MMA HWY Fighter Big Jeff "Final Destination" Blachly. Jeff fought in his…

This past weekend we packed up our Ivey League Minivan and hit the road for beautiful Providence Rhode Island, where the NAGA was hosting yet another amazing grappling tournament. We didn't take a large number of students this time around. This is mostly due to the distance. And believe me, it was freaking far! It…

This past weekend the students of Ivey League MMA produced some of the best results we've ever had in an open field competition. To say we were proud of what took place would be a massive understatement that's for sure. The competition I'm talking about was the Pennsylvania NAGA Grappling Championships. This is one of…

With all the stuff going on at Ivey league I thought it might be better to write a blog focusing on the all the news. You know, it's just easier this way :) Check it out http://annapolismixedmartialarts.com/ivy-league-mix-martial-arts-news-for-june-2014/
First thing first! Big congrats need to go out to longtime fighter and student Jeff Blachly and his lovely wife Jaclyn on the birth of their son, Colton Mark Blachly. Little Colton Blachly was born this morning (06/03/14) at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Obviously myself, the staff and our student body couldn't be more excited…

http://bjjturtleguard.com/taking-notes-can-take-your-bjj-game-to-the-next-level/html Yeah to a new post on my turtle guard site. Check it out.
Do you use a notebook? I'm going to take a guess and say no, you do not. My advice for everyone out there is to get a notebook from your local CVS and start using it. Yes, it does make that big of a difference and I'll tell you why. Many of the techniques in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can have some ...

Mark your calendars for October 25th, 2014. Ivey League MMA will be hosting a super sick takedown seminar with Naval Academy Assistant Wrestling Coach Lloyd Rogers. Trust me when I say this, Coach Rogers is no joke when it comes to taking people from standing to the ground. He's worked with top MMA Fighters including…

Introduction
Well hello there friend! My name is Danny Ives and I'm a former professional MMA fighter turned martial arts business owner.

I opened up Ivey League Mixed Martial Arts back in March of 2008 and I haven't looked back. I love it here in Annapolis and my students are just fantastic.

I teach classes in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Kids Mix Martial Arts and Muay Thai Kickboxing or sometimes known as "Thai Boxing".

My wife Teresa also trains in MMA. In fact, we met training together. Now we both run Ivey League MMA.

If you ever wanna stop by and learn some cool tricks by all means come on in! The address is listed below.

The best place in town for Vietnamese food, hands down. I've been coming here for years with my wife and we both agreed it's #1. It's a very clean place with great service and even better food. Our server has gone out of her way time and time again to make sure everything was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Well worth your time and money. Check them out.

Hands down Gary Parker is the best choice for your wedding or special event. My wife and I found their services to be very reasonably priced, which was a deciding factor for us. Mr. Gary and all those we worked with were very professional and have an eye for photography unlike any other in the business. Planning for our special day was a breeze and we couldn’t have asked for better pictures that's for sure! I Highly recommend GWParker Photography, two big thumbs up!

Great place! Not only was the food great but the staff members were so amazing it's unreal. My kid accidentally threw out her retainer and when I called to ask about it the nice lady I spoke with (Victoria I think) was not only very kind but she even went digging in the trash to find this thing! They did end up finding it and made one little girls day that much brighter :) You can't ask for a better business. Two thumbs up!

Great place to do business with! Everyone was super nice to me and my wife and in the end we bought three used cars from them. Everything down to the smallest details were addressed and we drove off feeling completely satisfied. If you need a car these are the guys/gals to see!

Super Fantastic Place To Learn Martial Arts! Toms River Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the best martial arts schools you're going to find anywhere, in New Jersey or otherwise. YES, THIS PLACE IS THAT GOOD! Amie and Ricky Gomez (owners) do an amazing job and it shows in their students skills and abilities. Every single time I visit this school I'm blown away by not only the high level of skill but also the kindness and respect they give to anyone who walks through their doors. It's also a great place for kids martial arts classes and very good for beginner level students who don't want to get "beat up" at some meathead MMA gym. IMO If you're looking for high quality training from a friendly and caring staff, then you'd be wise to give them a call and come check this school out.

This company rocks! Great service and very fair price-wise. I've used Color Fire for a few different things including web design and google adwords and I can assure you these guys know a thing or two about all this techie crazy stuff. This is good for me because I'm a dummy when it comes to anything internet or tech related. If you leave in Annapolis (or Maryland for that matter) you really should contact this company.
