Leah "The Nutcracker" Jackson

If anyone ever wondered why Disciple MMA runs so smoothly, its because of Leah. Not only does she have an extensive martial arts background. But she has spent the last few years learning everything there is to know about the fight game. Whether its matchmaking, sponsorships, managing, dealing with fighters, coaching, and even fighting herself. She has been an invaluable asset to Valhalla Muay Thai Fights, and to the Cowboy Fight Series. Without her, many of these event may not of happened. And she keeps Disciple in shape on top of that. When we think of people we want working all this craziness its her, keep it up Leah!

Coach Spotlight: Neil Johnson

Neil “Gutterman” Johnson, so much can be said about this man. Neil has been a coach and a friend of Disciple MMA before it was even founded. Everyone who knows Neil knows that he is one of the most reliable people you can hope for. Treating everyone he meets like family, and with a big goofy grin, Neil is always in the gym. Even on days we close, Neil is still driving to open up the doors to train with anyone and everyone. Neil is the one everyone calls with problems because they know he will stop at nothing to help, and never asks for anything in return. When people talk about the foundation of Disciple MMA, Neil is literally the one that has built it.
