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

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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
"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."

- Paul "Semtex" Daley
"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."
