Leo Negao


Leo was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  He started to train at Carlson Gracie’s academy in 1993 together with Murillo Bustamante, Amauri Bitteti, Mario Sperry, Vitor Belfort and others. At this time Carlson Gracie himself was the coach for Leo Negao and these aforementioned fighters.
In 1998, he moved to Sao Paulo to join the Alliance Jiu Jitsu team which had been founded by Romero “Jacaré” Cavalcanti, Fábio Gurgel and Alexandre Paiva in 1993.

In 2002, Leo Negao trained with Vitor Belfort and Antoñio 'Minotauro' Nogueira to develop his striking techniques. Thereafter, Leo Negao moved to Sweden and opened BJJ and MMA schools around Europe.

Having trained with the likes of  Carlson Gracie, GSP and Anderson Silva in his career Leo’s list of accolades could stretch a mile long and include:

* Winning the World BJJ Championships 4 times
*  A Vale Tudo champion with 17 wins and 0 losses under his belt
* Chief Instructor of Urban Krav Maga

Leo’s moves are so deadly that he was even banned from competing in the UK’s “Cage Rage” championships, this guy is so tough he makes Chuck Norris look like Mary Poppins.

 The Krav Maga Syllabus

We cover all the basic moves in the Level 1 Urban Kalibre Krav Maga Syllabus which include how to defend yourself against the 10 most common street attacks and more. Urban Krav Maga is real defence for the streets, a scenario-based fighting style that's not dependent on punching power and/or brute strength. Urban Krav Maga draws on many years of experience in the following fighting systems as well as various styles of Krav Maga: Karate; Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Traditional Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Boxing, Muay Thai, Vale Tudo and MMA. Urban Krav Maga recognises the importance of pre-emptive strikes for self-defence ‚Äď action always beats reaction, the aim is to equip the student as soon as possible to defend themselves against the most common attacks they may face. We teach everything that is needed for self defence when it‚Äôs necessary in all environments, including highly confined crowded spaces, cars, shopping centres, nightclubs, buses etc.



We are honoured to have 4 x BJJ World Champion Leo Negao as head coach who was taught directly by Carlson Gracie in Brazil.

Alongside Leo Negeo we have two other Black Belt BJJ coaches for the Kalibre Experience Thailand retreat: Anton Kim, head coach at Alpha BJJ in Koh Phangan and Duane Harper who will be traveling from the UK to teach our guests under Leo Negao.



 The Pressure Test

At the end of the week you will have the opportunity to put your skills to the test, with 8 mins of endurance demonstrating your self defence moves.
