    Testimonials

    "Nathan Leverton has a deep understanding of submission wrestling and mixed martial arts. This along with his patience and natural teaching ability makes him a great coach.".

    - Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy
    UFC Fighter

    "Nathan is a highly technical and skilled submission wrestler. Added to this he is an excellent instructor with patience and natural teaching ability. He can train anyone at any level from novice to seasoned professional. Any time I come back to England I make sure to get as much time as possible with Nathan to learn the most up to date and effective moves."

    - James "Lightning" Wilks
    UFC Veteran, The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 Winner

    "Nathan is a great coach and very friendly guy! He knows his stuff and is constantly on the look out to further his knowledge which he is all to keen to share. I learnt a lot from him, and look forward to working with him again in the future."

    - "Slick" Nick Osipczak
    UFC Veteran, The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 UK Team Member

    "Nathan’s a good friend and a fantastic coach. I always enjoy training with the Leicester Shoot guys and girls, and inevitably come away with some crucial pointers to tighten up and improve my game."

    - Rosi Sexton
    Cage Warriors Female World Champion

    "[Nathan] Leverton's instruction totally lived up to my expectations: intelligent, detailed and thorough. The breadth of his experience was immediately evident"

    - Can Sönmez, slideyfoot.com

    "Awesome grappler, great coach, and genuine person, with an open mind to learning, not what it says in the book, but what works."

    - Paul "Semtex" Daley
    UFC Veteran

    "Whilst training at Leicester Shootfighters the level of technical ability was extremely high and I learnt a lot which I added to my game"

    - Bradley Scott
    The Ultimate Fighter: UK vs Australia Finalist

    "Nathan Leverton brings an analytical, thought-out style of instruction to his classes and seminars that make them useful for both beginner and advanced grapplers. His flow from one technique to the next is logical and clear in a way that allows new grapplers to see the big picture while facilitating the transitional improvement of the experienced participants. Most importantly, in my opinion, Nathan focuses on high-yield, functional techniques. In a time when Jiu Jitsu is becoming increasingly more focused on the aesthetic and the "new," it's refreshing to get clear, good, functional ground game."

    - Hillary Williams
    IBJJF Black/Brown Belt World, Pan Am and NoGi Champion; ADCC Bronze Medallist

    "Nathan's understanding of the fundamental skills and tools needed to build an effective no-gi grappling game are second to none, he never misses the small details that count. This is shown in his Leverage grappling syllabus and series of seminars that cover the fundamentals, these seminars are without doubt some of the best I have attended!"

    - Matt Thorpe
    12 Gauge MMA Head Coach; King Of The Cage, Cage Warriors and Bodog Fight veteran

    "I've trained in Brazil, the west coast, east coast & all over Europe. Very few coaches really stand out & Nathan is one of them. You can tell when he teaches, not only does he understand the leverage and timing of a position but he can articulate those things to you in a concise manner. Not only was I impressed enough to travel to England twice but I actually flew him to the US to teach at my academy. My students are anxiously waiting for his return as well."

    - Roli Delgado
    BJJ Black Belt; UFC & The Ultimate Fighter Veteran

    "I was introduced to and guided through my MMA career by Nathan Leverton. I came to him a few years ago with very little knowledge about MMA and now I fight in the UFC. He is a genuine person who is putting his heart and time into helping me achieve my potential. For all those who wish to learn grappling or any from of MMA, whether it be a beginner or a professional fighter, then Nathan is the man to see. I have not come across better."

    Great offer from Levo!! The group is a class act and it wouldn't hurt anyone to have a couple of sessions with them. Fantastic gift to the MAP community!! Thanks muchly Levo!!

    Thank you for the very kind words.

    I hope some members of the MAP community take advantage of the offer. Each session is 5-6 hours long and distils over 15 years of my experience in MMA and grappling down to the most fundamental and important techniques, principles, strategies and tactics. I think few people wouldn't find it useful if they are interested in improving their grappling knowledge and ability.

    ill second this, anyone interested in no gi or grappling for MMA should attend this.

    Levo is one of the most experienced coaches in the UK and has no peer (in my opinion) when it comes to disecting the sports different components and improving the game of both novice grappler and pro fighter alike. At this price people would be silly not to attend

    I'll have to see what I'm up to in real life a bit nearer the time (and how my back recovery is going).
     
  16. Levo

    Basic answer:

    All levels are welcome, there are always a range of people from totally new students to experienced coaches at these seminars.

    To ramble a bit further:

    The techniques are simple (but, simple doesn't mean easy of course). Also, each session is very information heavy so on the one hand it may be a little overwhelming for a total beginner, but on the other hand you'll be getting exposed to the techniques and principles in one session that hopefully you'll be using for years to come. Basically, bring a notebook!

    I've trained with people where I was out my depth and only understood it years later but having been exposed to the information first made me get there quicker.

    If a session is challenging all the better. I saw the great writer Alan Moore talk last year and to paraphrase something he said that stuck with me: "I only read books I don't understand, what's the point of reading something I already know?".
