Here is a personal message from Pure Mixed Martial Arts’ owner and instructor, Andy Main
Hi, I’m Andy Main (left) pictured here with my friend, MMA pioneer and UFC and Pride Legend, Don Frye (right). Please allow me to tell you a little about my brother and I, the overall environment you can expect at our academy, and the positive lifestyle changes that we guarantee you will experience from training with us.
I have always been very intrigued by sports, fitness, and different forms of competition. I tried all kinds of different conventional sports and even extreme sports like snowboarding and skateboarding. I found that I was unable to stay enthusiastic. Until, that is, I found Mixed Martial Arts. I started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when I was just 16 years old, and picked up Wrestling, Judo, Boxing, and Muay Thai, a short while later. I have been training, competing, and fighting consistently ever since.
As a teenager I was skinny and wiry, but always I assumed I could handle myself if there was a call for it. I was blown away when I took my first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. I realized that most of fighting takes place on the ground and I, like most, had no idea what I was doing. When I realized how much technique was involved and how much there was to learn, I was absolutely hooked. Since then my career as a Mixed Martial Artist has taken me on an incredible journey that I never could have imagined including being a cast member of the UFC’s reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” on Spike TV and training with some of the best fighters, instructors, and coaches all across the country.
My brother Mike has been training nearly as long as I have. He started when he was 14 years old and has been on quite a journey himself. He has trained with some of the best in the world and has competed and won many events on the local and national level. I will let him tell you more about his career first hand on his personal bio page, but what I will say is that he is hands down one of the best grapplers on the east coast and those that have trained and learned from him can attest to his gift for instructing and genuine care for his students.
We stand behind our mission statement. Facilitating helping you set and achieve goals is our priority. Whether that is to be an MMA world champion or to shed a couple pounds, there is no goal too big or too small. We’ve got your back and want to help you get there. You can expect to be consistently intrigued and be learning something new every day, you will get the best exercise, and you will experience a positive atmosphere and great camaraderie. You will not be sorry; I hope you’ll visit us very soon!
I leave you with this. I personally guarantee your satisfaction, your success in setting and achieving goals, and I promise my staff and I will ALWAYS put the students best interest first. I want to offer you our FREE introductory offer and give you the chance to try us out with no commitment. Call today; I can’t wait to hear from you. Our phone number is 973 784 3777.

Check out this list of benefits you will get from training at PURE Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness
Self Defense: Being able to handle yourself if ever the situation called for it is what we are all about. We always hope that we would never have to use our skills in a real life situation, but if ever a situation did arise, the different styles of martial arts we teach are, without a doubt, the most effective forms of self-defense.
Strength, Flexibility, Cardio, and Conditioning: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu develops functional strength and muscle conditioning. You will also learn to control breathing in high intensity practices, which will ultimately give you more lung strength, a healthier heart, and more energy in everyday life. All of the martial arts will increase flexibility, which means better blood flow and, along with all the other benefits, an overall happier and healthier lifestyle.
Weight Loss: Striking classes have been proven time and time again to burn calories faster than almost any other exercise. In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Submission Grappling you will use muscles in your entire body. This results in the body converting fat to lean raw functional muscle.
Mental Strength, Confidence, and Stress Relief: Mixed Martial Arts are as cerebral as they are physical. You will develop serious mental toughness while learning to handle yourself in difficult situations. This mental strength added with feeling stronger and healthier results in a rise in confidence and significant stress relief.
Be excited to learn again: We are all guilty of allowing ourselves to get into a stagnant routine from time to time. Try to remember how exciting it is when you start learning a new skill. Well we provide a place to get out of the pattern and become enthusiastic about learning again and ultimately, have FUN! Ask anyone who has gotten involved with MMA, BJJ, or Striking. They will attest to how much fun learning, training, and being among other motivated people can be.
It’s time to experience these benefits for yourself! Fill out the info sheet at the top right and we will get in touch will you ASAP. Or call us now at 973 784 3777!

Hear what people are saying about us!
Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman – UFC Fighter
“I’ve been training with Andy for the last several years. He basically introduced me to BJJ. One of the reasons I was drawn to his style is because he is always looking to improve, searching out the best training available. We also share the same mindset, which is to not limit ourselves to one line of thinking. I’ve probably asked him a thousand questions about BJJ, and I’ve put the answers to good use”
-Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman
PS “I tapped out his brother with an arm triangle” :)
Evan Lotzof – Accountant. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt.
When I made the journey from my home in Queens, NY to Whippany, NJ to train with Andy, I thought it would be a one-time thing. An opportunity to train with a rising star and Ultimate Fighter alumnus, and add a name to the already long list of MMA celebrities I had interacted with. Little did I know I would make the 3-hour journey once a month for the next year and a half.
Andy rolled with me for a few minutes, and from that roll was able to analyze my game and deduce my strengths and weaknesses. He gave me very easy and clear-cut instructions on very basic things I could do better. After that first lesson I went back to my academy and the improvements to my game were extremely noticeable to me, my teammates and my coach. I continue to train with Andy, and every time he works with me I come home better.
Last 9/11, I was raising money for the Green Beret Foundation in connection with an endurance run I was doing. Many fighters donated private lessons, but Andy made the most generous donation by far. He donated a private lesson to everyone who gave over $60. At least 50-60% of the almost six thousand dollars I raised was directly attributable to Andy.
I highly recommend Andy as a Jiu Jitsu instructor. No matter what your level or goals are, he can help you reach them. He is a very patient, intelligent and articulate teacher and just a great guy in general.
Kyle Watson – UFC Veteran. Pan American Champion. TUF 12 Semi-Finalist. BJJ Black Belt.
I have not only known Andy Main for a few years, but I have also had the pleasure of training with him on numerous occasions. During these times, it has been easy to see why he has experienced a great degree of success in both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.
Of the many positive characteristics that define Andy, some of the qualities that stand out are his vast level of knowledge, his ability to teach, and his passion to help others. He has the drive, dedication, and skill to help people achieve their martial arts and fitness goals. I highly recommend training with the Main Brothers at Pure Mixed Martial Arts!
