    Hi everybody

    Hi

    Thanks to Al for inviting to this forum.

    My name is Nathan Leverton and I've done martial arts on and off for 20 years. I started in Shotokan Karate as a kid then got in to grappling through Geoff Thompson after a break due to ill health in my teens.

    I became involved with the UK's early Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) scene through a website I ran with some friends called SFUK (Submission Fighting UK) which led me in to writing a news column for MAI, taking photographs at shows, judging fights and lots of other stuff.

    I now teach grappling at my club Leicester Shootfighters (I'm a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). Here is a clip of some of my students choking guys at a recent grappling event (make sure you have the speakers on lol): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qne1_jRVnpw

    I also teach some MMA, mainly coaching and doing the corner for top ten European ranked pro fighters Andre Winner, Jim Wallhead and Dan Hardy.

    I hope to open a full time gym next year.

    Thanks guys.

    Not even close to making a dent Mick. Got about 5 books on the go and find it best to read Geoff's in small chunks so it'll probably take a while!
