Rave Reviews from Annapolis, Maryland Clients

My son was having really bad anxiety when he started here. He was getting stomachaches and trying to skip out on class bc he was so nervous. Master Danny went above and beyond to make him feel comfortable and part of the family. Words can not describe how wonderful everyone here is.

Amy HMother

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.

I've been training here at Ivey League since I was 12. I just transferred into the Adult Program. I love it here so much. Everyone here is like family. This is honestly like my second home!
