Mixed Martial Arts

“There are probably four or five great teams that are capable of putting out world champions, and American Top Team is one of them.”

UFC President Dana White

Learn Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) the right way, the ATT way! Mixed martial arts is a combat sport that combines the various martial arts styles and disciplines including traditional Karate, Taekwondo, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, and Brazillian JiuJitSu to name a few.

The revolution of MMA exploded into the mega sport it is today through professional exposure including the UFC, Pride, and K-1. MMA will continue to evolve and expand as athletes and fighters become more knowledgeable, better trained, and more experienced in mastering multiple martial arts styles.

ATT is arguably, the largest and most reputable of all MMA fighting teams. Most ATT professional fighters are champions and top contenders in almost every professional MMA forum around the world, including the UFC. ATT continues to grow as more and more top professional names are joining ATT to learn the secret of champions. Our school is the only martial arts school in Bergen County licensed to teach MMA under the American Top Team banner.

We are certified under ATT to teach all levels using their proven systems and know-how. Level 1 includes all basic techniques that are proven to be the most effective as a means of self-defense in the street, or in the cage. Whether you’re a professional or amateur, level 1 is a pre-requisite for all.

Level 1 implements 3 parts: Striking (standup punches and kicks), Takedowns (pummeling, clinch, sweeps, throws), and Grappling (submission wrestling, jiujitsu, “ground & pound”). Levels 2 and 3 implement more advanced techniques and conditioning in all areas, cage/ring management, fighting strategies, and more for the fighter or athelete that wants to push themselves to the next level of training including competition. However, our ATT methods are taught in a safe, student friendly, and positive learning environment.

ATT enforces traditonal martial arts values such as discipline and respect for oneself and others. Whether you’re 20 years old or 40 years old, someone just looking to learn for fun and get a great workout, or even if you’re a professional fighter, get a great body conditioning workout, learn all the basic techniques properly, and have a lot of fun! Become a proud member of the ATT family.

Once students complete the Level 1 course, they may qualify at their option for advanced Level courses.


“I should have done this sooner! As a 36-year old runner, I thought I was in pretty good shape, but after signing up for MMA at DP Martial Arts Academy, my fitness has been rocketed to a whole new level. I’ve logged thousands of miles in training and ran three marathons, but nothing compares to the cardio and core workout you get from boxing and grappling. After a few months of MMA, my running times improved, and I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in.”
