I train at Impact gym in sleaford,were we are all relative novices but can definately give you some good sparring and conditioning work.Also Bracebridge boxing club on sat afternoons,were it is more rough and ready sparring with boxers and wrestlers,but good fun and still useful at your stage.
Hope that helps,your more than welcome.

As bloodyalways said, Impact Martial Arts is a very good place for submission grappling.
Ive been going to clubs for a while now and im still rubbish! Have you had any fights? Why so bothered about the move abroad if your so tallented why not stay in the uk to train?
HEED MY WORDS
I can understand wanting to go abroad. Don't forget, he's 17, who didn't think about travelling when they were that age? But I would say leave it another year to build up basic skills before you travel abroad, or you might not benefit as much from your time there.
Are you working full time or in college? If your working then maybe find a decent local place then hop on a train every couple of weeks to somewhere more well established? Or if ur still in education maybe look for schools in areas with more gyms os something
