I have always liked the idea of working up a good sweat in a man-to-man fight with another guy. Thus it came natural to try wrestling maybe four years ago. And those few matches I have had have all given me a good sweat, then it doesn't matter much who will win and who will lose! Prefer easygoing or light submission, have a rising interest in Pro wrestling, but also do play wrestling. No impact play! Erotic could also be a possibility, but I mostly avoid this, for this just takes too much focus from wrestling. Also have no access to mats at home.
I'm gay, into jackoff (after the match), spandex, normally wear a leotard or a singlet for the match. No interest in nude wrestling. So mostly in here to learn the tricks. Love to be put in scissor holds and like to dish them out myself! I am also into bondage and am on other sites known as rubbertied, but this name was not accepted on this site. So therefore I am using my old screen name of alpinisto!
I was struck by a blood clot in June 2013, so I had to step back from marathon running, at least temporarily (I hope), and take my workouts to the gym instead though it is not quite the same. Although the good fitness I had from being a regular runner and a mountaineer for 30 years has helped me in the recovery from the blood clot, I am still not quite on the level of fitness which I used to be.
I usually have to travel for wrestling, but after I lost my accounting job as an effect of the blood clot this is no longer so much possible. But I hope to be able to afford the following travels for 2016: Dresden (December). For 2017 my plans are to visit Flensburg (January), Hildesheim (February), Paris (April) and Trenton NJ (September). Also tend to visit Berlin three times a year, and I hope to meet other wrestlers on all those travels!
July this year I was lucky to meet catchbear1 for a match in Berlin, and the video below was the result of that match!
Match structure: Play wrestling, Practicing techniques, Outdoors fights, Not interested in cyber, Looking for coach
Specific wrestling styles: Brit pro wrestling
Miscellaneous interests: Friendship, I'm a jobber
Fetishes: Jackoff, Spandex, CBT
I am willing to travel 750 kilometers
Bei kleiner kerl's Matchanfrage letzten Sonnabend habe ich diesen starken Kerl getroffen, aber unser Match wurde fast beendet bevor es angefangen hat. Weil wegen ein Unfall bevor wir rightig angefangen hatten hat er sein eines Bein verstaucht. Obwohl wir zwanzig Minuten später trotzdem ringen könnten war es deutlich, daß er nicht sein volles Kraft einsetzen können. So ich habe ihn relativ leicht besiegt, aber in diese Hinsicht zählt es nicht. Ich hoffe nur dass wir bald wieder ebenbürtig ringen können wenn seine Verstauchung völlig zu Ende ist.
ian was a great surprise I meet him twice when I was in denmark
we have two hours great match with a lot of energy sweat and power/
ian have a lot of stamina and wish to win' but Iit allways was in a safe and a same way' I enjoy our meeting very much and hope to meet him again soon thanks mate
Just a few days after Christmas I was lucky to get to wrestle Tuvia who was visiting Copenhagen. This guy has about the same height and weight as me but was remarkably stronger - and I soon realised that he had practised BJJ regularily through five years, which I had no experience with. So my odds were pretty bad though he gave me the chance to put in some effort from time to time. We seemed equal on scissors and bearhugs, but on all other holds he was superior. Though I noticed that while the first rounds had only lasted a few seconds before I had to give up, it now took longer time. Maybe I had more endurance than him and I could win in the end? I never found out, for in the end I had to throw in the towel! And soaked with sweat I had to withdraw. But wrestling Tuvia was a pleasant surprise and I am already looking forward to our next match - tomorrow!
Alpinisto flew over all the way from Copenhagen to meet me in my Mid-wales mat room, staying over for two nights.
The first afternoon we had an hour or so of wrestling when I was able to test him! He is very tenacious and does not tap easily. I think he would agree that, despite having more MeetFighter opponents under his belt, he was out-classed!
The second day we were joined by Peter69 who came from a couple of hours south of me – bearing gifts! He was seeking some experience which I hope we provided. Peter69 and Alpinisto had a wrestle first while I kept an eye on them. They went at it with neither wanting to give way although Alpinisto probably had the upper hand.
After a break for them to recover I wrestled with Peter69. He was obviously out-matched (and is 8 years older than me) but I hope I was able to teach him a few things to try!
After that I took on Alpinisto who stood his ground well. Like the day before, he was tenacious and we had an hours’ wrestling until he’d had enough!
Apart from the wrestling it was a good chance for the three of us to chat about wrestling.
Later in the afternoon Peter69 left to drive home. Alpinisto reckoned he didn’t have the energy for any more wrestling!
Many thanks to him for travelling so far & being a good guest!
I have never been afraid of wrestling heavier opponents than myself, for heavier opponents rarely have the necessary stamina. But Pete had, and him being slightly heavier than me was certainly because of his muscle mass. Wide shoulders and abs like a punchbag! I was luckily able to spend two days with him, and he took me through a lot of wrestling, although there wasn't much difference between the matches we had, for I always ended under him with my back in the mat. Pete has some amazing wrestling facilities in his country home in Mid Wales and he takes good care of his guests. And even in this far-out place I was surprised how easy it was to get there, only four hours from Copenhagen. Which hardly can be done faster from London. I already hope for a revisit next year!
First of all, I want to thank Pete (aka GymGladiator) for his welcome. After a coffee and a friendly chat we all set of for Pete's mat room which he has set up.
Jan is a lot younger and more experienced than I am although we are around the same weight. We had a bout that felt like 6 hours duration but was only more like 6 minutes. Most of that time I spent trying to fight of a succession of Jan's attacks. I finally decided to submit to the inevitable. The fact is that I was out-manoeuvred and out classed in a bout that I thought may be a little more even than it was. Later Jan appeared in some gear and we had another bout that was a little shorter in time and I was surprised to find that in this I was a little more successful. Please note the important word here is little, then after being destroyed in the morning anything looks good.
Overall a great bloke and an enjoyable time on the mat and off
While spending two days with GymGladiator in Wales I had talked with four other UK guys who also wanted to join in for a wrestle. But in the end only Peter69 found it worthwhile to go there. Just a pity for the other guys!
Peter69's wrestling was different to GymGladiator's, for Peter69 used his hands much, so I 'only' had to control his many attacks. So even though we had about the same weight I was better to use mine. After all I had the rare situation of being the more experienced guy.
We managed to do two matches while he was there, and in the first the outcome was clear, but he found difficult to accept it, so he kept fighting with no major outcome. I know that if the situation is hopeless it is better to tap out so you can use the energy for another attempt. So when he finally gave in he was totally exhausted.
After lunch we had our second match, and this time limited to 3 minutes. Here we were more equal so we had some very good wrestling. So even though Peter69 is an elder guy I feel sure that he can become a difficult opponent when he gets more matches under his belt. I can only give Peter69 my best recommandation!
Unser Match hat mir sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Er ist ein guter Ringer und hat mich während des Kampfes gut unter Kontrolle gehabt. Für ein Rückmatch stehe ich jederzeit gerne bereit.
Ralf war so weit mein schwerste Gegner, so um nicht unter ihn gequetscht zu werden müsste ich dafür sorgen, oben zu bleiben. Und das ist mir gerade gelungen, wahrscheinlich weil er mehr Jobber ist - obwohl ich selber auch oft der Jobber bin. Aber ich will mich nicht freiwillig auf der Rücken werfen und bemühe mich deswegen in der Match einen guten Schweiss aufzubauen. Und das habe ich in der Match mit Ralf gehabt. Ich bin sicher dass er noch Pläne mit mir hat, so ich werde ihn gern ein Revanche anbieten.
Alpinisto ist ein sehr angenehmer Gegner. Es macht große Freunde mit ihm zu ringen. Man muss sehr aufpassen, dass man nicht zwischen seine Obetschenkel gerät. Seine Beine sind lang und stark. Ich kann Alpinisto sehr empfehlen.
Ich hatte nicht so viel Widerstand von Kuschelringer erwartet - aber da wurde ich überrascht. Weil man sollte ihn nicht unterschätzen! Ich habe ihn dann mit meine Bearhugs pazificiert, aber das hat nur kurzfristig geholfen als ich eingesehen habe dass ich dabei nur meine Kräfte verschwende während mein Gegner einfach ausruhen könnte. Es musste eine andere Lösung geben, aber es war nicht eindeutig was ich machen sollte. So unser Kampf endete wohl unentschieden - möge aber gern noch eine Runde mit ihm machen.
Netter Kerl aus Dänemark. Dass ein Ringkampf beim Schultersieg endet, ist ihm egal, er ringt weiter, weil es ja um den Spaß an der Bewegung geht.
Wie ich selber hatte auch Ben AlHürxe in die Ringercamp von Einsteiger in Lindow teilgenommen, nur ein Jahr später als ich. Aber im Gegensatz zu mir hat er die Training in Einsteiger fortgesetzt. Und als ich ihn heute traf könnte ich deutlich merken was für ein Unterschied ein Jahr Ringertraining macht. Weil in seine erfahrene Hände könnte ich ihn kaum mehr als zwanzig Sekunden lang Widerstand geben ehe ich wieder mit die Schultern in der Matte lag. Aber trotz diese Erfahrungsmässige Unterschied ist er 'safe and sane', so ich werde ihm immer wieder gern ringen. Obwohl es wohl lange dauert bevor ich ihm ein ebenbürtige Gegner sein kann.
Alpinisto is very active in travelling, and so I got the chance to meet him in Berlin together with other guys. He is stronger and heavier than me and was the winner of our fight. He was cautious and fair. In total, he is a very friendly and nice person and I would like to meet him again.
Stringringer war für sein Alter überraschend geschmeidig, so er war eine wahre Herausforderung für mich. Weil jedes Mal ich dachte, dass ich ihn in der Hand festhalten könnte hat er sich wieder herausgeschlichen und ich könnte von vorne wieder anfangen. Aber zum Schluss hatte ich ihn in ein Griff, von den er nicht entkommen könnte.
Aber zwei Stunden später hatten wir einen weiteren Kampf, und weil ich an diesen Tag schon drei Kämpfe gehabt hatte sah es jetzt anders aus. Weil Stringringer war nun mehr fit als ich, wollte wohl die Revanche. So ich kann nur auf ein dritten Kampf mit ihn hoffen. Was ich auch jederzeit gern machen will, weil Stringringer ist echt zu empfehlen.
Alpinisto was a fun roll. He agreed to do oil wrestling which was a first for both of us. Makes it just as good a workout and requires alot more skill than u would think. Dont miss the chance as he travels worldwide.
Standing in front of Shoot I was a bit surprised, for apparently he had a solid body, which normally was filling out his daywear clothes pretty well, and with his next steps forward I was down with my back on the ground! 'Good start', I thought, but I was pretty used to that, so let us take it from there, and we ended up having a pretty joyful match. Sure Shoot knew more about wrestling than I did, but I had the recent years got more experience in being in defense, though it didn't always help against Shoot. I have always been a leg's man, and Shoot very well knew how to use his good and muscular legs - though he also rewarded me for my own. Hard to say how the match ended, for he didn't make me tap out, and neither did he. But I am in no doubt that Shoot must have won on points. I can thus highly recommend Shoot to any wrestler passing by his way for an interesting match!
Great guy with strong legs! Keeps a nondescript and quiet profile, but one can see how his legs can submit guys who've unknowingly ventured into his guard!
Enjoys a good roll too!
A good meet up if you're int he vicinity of Copenhagen!
I had just returned home from my vacation in the Unites States and before my arrival home I had planned to wrestle this guy. As soon as I saw him I knew that I was in for trouble. I had never before seen such muscular guy, so I felt sure that he could crush me like a fly, even though we both had the same weight. Well, I have never disliked even impossible matches for at least I hopefully can learn something, and actually I did learn something from being caught in his vice scissors. Scissors is not just a test of pure muscle power but also stamina - and I did not have stamina enough for that! So when I finally gave way he simply pressed all air out of my body so I hardly could breathe. I better do a bit more training so I can be better prepared for next time, for I would love to meet and wrestle him again if he should come over here again.
Really enjoyed wrestling alpinisto. Quite a personable guy. I liked wrestling him because he respects your limits and took his time wrestling–I like long matches. He's got a great set of legs and can squeeze you really hard in a scissors. It's not often I submit from a head scissors but alpinisto wore me down and did get a submission from me. If you ever have the opportunity to meet/wrestle him it will be a great experience. Can't wait until he's back in my area again.
When I had visited Trenton in New Jersey in 2015 it had not been possible for me to wrestle Wally, but this year we succeeded in having a good motel wrestle, for like me he didn't have the place to wrestle. Wally is a friendly and sociable guy, knows a bit about scissors, my favorite hold, and I was happy that I could return the favor and finally put him in a headscissor! I can easily recommend him to any other wrestling visitor to New Jersey!
Respect for this man!
Hes so passionate about wrestling,he traveled all the way to meet me after exchanging messages for a long time.We had a fabulous time trying out holds- he even made my heel side emerge-which proves what an adjustable,ingenious,resourceful guy he is.Looks great in his gear,too.
Do meet him and you wont regret it..
I had always seen Greece and in particular Athens as the birthplace of wrestling, so I felt honoured when Nikos invited me to stay a few days in Athens. As a true jobber he had wanted me to bearhug him, and I would happily do so, for I had dished out bearhugs since long time before I had started wrestling. But when bearhugging Nikos I could clearly feel what good muscle he had. And with Nikos I was shown much more wrestling holds than I had known before. So I can only bow down for him as the pride of Greek wrestlers! Naturally he comes highly recommended and I can only hope that I one day can meet and wrestle him again.
TAK Alpinisto for the great three wrestling days with you and the other fighters. Of course you have not yet able to collect as much experience as I did. In addition, you are health not quite fit. Respect that you have still struggled with me. You are a great wrestler, you have power, passion and you can be very hot. And you have recognized that your hairy body has let me be weak -))))
And MANGE TAK also you are great guide and you have showed me your wonderful town at day and night :-)))) really you are friendly Viking!
I'm leaving Copenhagen not only with fond memories but also with a newfound friend. And I am impressed by your very good German. Respect. Unfortunately, I am not a linguistic genius.
He gets my total recommendation
G6fighter is certainly the strongest wrestler I have met. With his 31 years of wrestling experience and way over 200 past opponents, with his steely arms and legs and concrete joints, I had not much chance with him. But I have never been afraid of wrestling guys bigger or stronger than me, for at least I maybe can learn a bit, and sure I had fun wrestling him. Three days I wrestled him, and all days gave me the same outcome with me lying on my back under his muscular body. G6fighter is a nice and friendly chap to be with, so I was only happy to show him round Copenhagen. Had he been here any longer I only would have been wrestling him again, but for doing this I now will have to go to Düsseldorf. Hopefully soon!
Endelig en fin dansk fyr som er frisk. Det er sjælden fornøjelse ,og vi skal mødes igen snart :-)
Jeg havde faktisk opgivet at kunne bryde med andre danskere, for de få der var her på siden havde tilsyneladende ikke lyst til en kamp. Men Finn her var en undtagelse, og jeg nød godt af hans hjælp da jeg skulle bryde mod en stærk tysker her i København. Derudover var han et venligt og omgængeligt menneske, og jeg håber da på at kunne få en kamp med ham alene i nærmere fremtid!
der jan ist ein guter und kräftiger Ringer, ich kann ihn euch sehr gut vermitteln un dich denke ihr werdet mit Ihm ne menge Spaß haben beim ringen
Sperling war ein Kerl, den ich früher im Jahr getroffen hatte, aber damals kamen wir nicht zum ringen. Aber diesmals! Sperling ist ein solider und schwerer Ringer, der nicht zu unterschätzen ist. Denn ich fand bald heraus, dass er mir kräftemässig überlegen war. Ausserdem war er wahrscheinlich auch ein wenig schwerer als er in seinem Profil angegeben hat. Und er war schneller, als man erwartet konnte. Obwohl man selten die Gelegenheit hatte, seine Schnelligheit zu testen. Denn er hat seinen Gewichtsvorteil ausgenutzt. Wenn er erst auf mir lag, hatte ich keine Chancen, frei zu kommen. Er war so sehr überlegen, dass er sich leisten konnte, mir bei meinen Befreiungsversuchen relaxed zuzusehen. Und Sperling hatte genug Zeit und nahm sich die Freiheit mit mir zu spielen. Ich finde dass es ein guter Ringkampf ist, wenn man total verschwitzt ist. Und wir waren beide an diesem Tag total verschwitzt! Aber Sperling war noch mehr verschwitzt als ich - wenn möglich. Ich bin froh, Sperling gerungen zu haben und würde es gern wieder tun. Vorzugsweise wenn ich mehr Erfahrung habe!
Jan ist ein sehr netter und faier Sportsmann .Es hat grossen Spass gemacht gegen ihn zu ringen.Er nutzt jede Möglichkeit um seinen Gegner in seine gefürchteten Beinscheren zu bekommen.Kommt man da erst mal rein, hat man es sehr schwer wieder raus zu kommen. Jan ist ein sehr positives Beispiel dafür, das man mit viel Energie ein gesundheitlich schweres Tief überwinden kann um wieder fit zu werden.Dafür gebürt ihn Respekt und Anerkennung
Jan ist ein starker Gegner und ich kann ihn jederzeit empfehlen.freue mich schon jetzt auf weitere Begegnungen mit ihm
Ich war von kleiner kerl zum ringen in Berlin eingeladen, und das wurde fünf gute Tage. Weil er hatte nicht nur Lust auf ringen sondern auch Platz dafür, und ich hatte die Hoffnung dass der mich wieder im Gang setzen könnte nach ein halbes Jahr ohne Möglichkeit zum ringen.
Wie der Name sagt ist kleiner kerl nicht gross - aber man sollte ihn dennoch nicht unterschätzen. Scheinbar bringt seine Körpergrösse ihn auch Vorteile, weil jedes Mal ich dachte dass ich hatte ihn jetzt gepinnt, geling es ihn wie eine Katze von mein Griff auszuschleichen. Und er hatte auch eine Katze in seine Wohnung...!
Während die fünf Tage haben wir vier Matches gehabt, und zum Anfang war er mir weit überlegen. Aber als ich allmählich im Gange kam wurde er mehr unter Druck gesetzt, so in die letzte Matches hat er mein kastanienbrauner Leotard angezogen, den ein anderen Ringer trug als der mich demütig platt legte. Scheinbar hat diesen Leotard auch kleiner kerl geholfen, und ich habe eingesehen dass ich werde ihn diesmals nicht in die Mangel kriegen. Aber nächstes mal...!
Kleiner kerl ist sicherlich eine empfehlungswerte Ringer, und ich sehe schon unser nächste Treffen entgegen.
Hatte ein sub match mit ihm starker ringer,
hoffe noch auf einen kampf
Gegen catchbear1 hatte ich etwas bessere Möglichkeiten als ich mich vorgestellt hatte. Er war der erste Gegner von meheren auf diesem verlängerten Berliner Wochenende. Etwas schwerer als ich, aber nicht viel, und auch ein bisschen kürzer. Falls ich unter ihn geraten sollte, könnte ich damit rechnen dass ich vorläufig nicht frei kommen würde. Aber der zeigte sich nicht als sehr ausdauernd, so ich sollte einfach der Motor laufen lassen, und wenn ich eine Öffnung sah sollte ich zuschlagen. Und dann könnte ich die Situation zu meinen Vorteil nutzen um das Match für mich zu entscheiden. So war für mich dieser Kampf mehr taktischer Natur. Zum Schluss habe ich ihn in ein Headscissor gefangen, und das wurde das Ende von ihm. Aber jetzt ist er vorbereitet, so ich denke nicht dass der nächste Match mit ihn so einfach wird! Ich freue mich jetzt schon darauf.
From evening of 18th to 20th Mai visited me Alpinisto in my weekend house.
Alpinisto; the name says it. He mastered the 5- and 6-thousand metre mountains and made marathon runs.
He was struck by a sudden blood clot in, 2013. Then he started his physical rehabilitation. The fight is a part of it. It is a sporting all-round activity. Win or not win is not important for him. The main thing is the all-round workout by wrestling. He is a very good example of an health reboot. I admire him.
Of course we fought extensively. He fights well and he has a great willpower. Also the forest and good food we did not missed. Only the water in forest lake him was still too cold.
Alpinisto has traveled around the world and he is very worldly wise. It is a pleasure to talk with him about the concerns of the world. He has my absolute recommendation and come back again on the mat :-)
I had hoped that I could have participated in the International Wrestler's camp in Lindow also this year, but then I had to go to my friend's birthday party in Dresden instead. But Ereignis told me that his datscha (weekend house) was not too far away from Dresden, and when he sent me a picture of his own mat amidst the wood I knew that I had to go there, for I have loved the only previous time I had wrestled on outdoor mats. So I was lucky to spend two nights with Ereignis in his datscha, and I was happy that I could wrestle him here in the wood now I could not go Lindow.
Ereignis is remarkably strong for his age - but this was no wonder, bearing in mind the pictures of his exercises. And these exercises paid, for it was a hard work keeping him down - if I ever got the chance! And I only hope that my legs will return to former strength so I can have a decent match with him next time I visit him! Ereignis is highly recommended!
Ich bin stolz darauf, Jan als Gegner hier begrüßen zu dürfen. Er ist ein sehr kraftvoller Gegner, dessen Vorliebe für Lycra ich teile! Seine Beinscheren sind eine Wucht! Jan ist ein Vorbild dafür, wie man trotz eines gesundheitlichen Tiefs sich wieder aufrappeln tut! Dafür verdient er einen hohen Respekt!
Ich kann ein neues treffen in Lycra kaum erwarten!
Ich hatte das Glück, Christian zu ringen, als ich ein Besuch in Berlin hatte. Wir haben ein guten Kampf gehabt, wo ich meine Scheren praktisieren könnte. Ich würde sehr gern nochmals Berlin besuchen um ein zweites Match mit ihn zu haben!
Zwei Jahre später könnte ich wieder Christian ringen. Wie üblich hatte ich während den langen Winter kaum ringen gekonnt, so ich hatte das Bedürfnis, etwas Rost zu klopfen. Und damit hat Christian mich gern geholfen! Mag sein dass wir nur Play wrestling machte, aber ich denke dass das die beste Lösung für uns beide war!
Diesen lieben Kerl habe ich von der U-Bahn abgeholt. Bei mir dann geplaudert bis es zum Raufen kam. Ich konnte ihn relativ leicht besiegen und pinnen. Nichtsdestotrotz hat er sein bestes gegeben damit wir beide ins Schwitzen kamen. 2 Fights 2 Mal Sieger. Der Kaffee und Kuchen zwischendurch waren auch gut. 😊
Wie üblich im Winter hatte ich neben die Stunden ins Gymnasium keine weitere Aktivität während die kalte Monate gehabt, und es war fast ein halbes Jahr seitdem ich gerungen hatte. Ich hatte deutlich das Bedürfnis das 'Rost' abzuklopfen, und Gott sei Dank hat wrestlebln mich nach Berlin eingeladen, sodass ich nach der lange Winterpause mit ihn mal wieder ringen könnte. Und es war schön mal wieder zu ringen, obwohl ich natürlich nicht viel gegen ihn anstellen könnte, aber er hatte ein gutes Gefühl, wie er sich auf mich einstellen könnte. Damit wir beide eine gute Zeit zusammen verbringen könnte und schön ins Schwitzen kam. Und das nicht nur auf der Matte, obwohl wir nach Kaffee und Kuchen bei eine Runde in sein Stadtteil natürlich noch eine Runde ringen könnten. So natürlich gern wieder nächste Mal ich in Berlin bin!
Alpinsito is a very friendly and easy going guy and making arrangements to meet with him was hassle free.
Although there was a big weight and height difference, he took this into consideration and I felt very safe in his company, He certainly knows what he is doing on the mats and most of the time I was completly outclassed.
Met Playwrestling in High Barnet mat room as my first opponent during a five-day long weekend in London, and after not having wrestled for a long time it was nice having a pleasant match with him. Despite his name he also knew some Pro techniques which I did not know about. But I learned quickly and then they was no longer fun for him, though I tried not to make use of my weight advantage. Playwrestling is a friendly guy with a nice hairy body so we had a good sweaty match, which unfortunately ended much too soon! But I'd like to wrestle him again next time I am in London.
Alpinisto is a lot of grappling fun – we went back and forth, and even if he is bigger and stronger than I am, he was respectful of limits and a seriously fun challenge. Meet him if you can; I'm glad that he travels a lot!
I had been talking with this guy since I had been discharged from the hospital following the blood clot I was struck by in 2013, hoping that one day we could meet in person. And this finally happened two years later when he was visiting the UK. If he could go there so could I, and we finally met in London for a hotel wrestle.
Although he was a bit short and light for me and both of us generally jobbers it was nice to wrestle him, for in spite of his size he was remarkably strong, probably from being a swimmer for many years, so unless I made use of my weight advantage we had a quite even match. I had a very good time with him, both in and outside our match, and I am looking forward to our planned serious meeting in Maine next year.
Missed out on meeting this wrestler last time he was in UK. So only had pics to go by. He matches up to everything you see in the pics!! He has powerful legs from his running days and his arms are good too. Avoid his scissors if you an. Safe, sane, reliable, great company after the mat session. This wrestler may not have the "killer instinct" that some of the rasslin' community has, but he is fun on the mats. Give him a go if you get the chance...you wont regret it!
This time I was lucky to meet dadwrestle in his London mat room after I had missed him last time I had been in London. He is a big and heavy guy, but I have never been afraid of wrestling guys heavier than myself. For such guys I have a feeling that I can not damage, which give me a good chance to try potential new techniques - if I get the chance! I have always liked strong male legs, and this wrestler has thighs sturdy as telephone poles. And just as unbreakable! He also has some good strong arms, so it was nice to try finding out, who of us who could dish out the strongest bearhug. Wrestling dadwrestle I had expected that I would be just a wrestling toy for him. He was both safe and sane, just like I had thought he was, and it was nice to share company with him both on and off the mats. I should know that 200+ previous opponents can't be wrong! I can only advice you to cue up in line for wrestling this guy!
Alpinisto is a strong and capable opponent who is very much into grappling. He is very aggressive and enthusiastic about his matches.
I had a timely mismatch with bdjockboy in Pennsylvania so I was happy when by coincidence I finally met him the following day. He is a strong wrestler who knows what he is doing so sure it was a challenge to keep him at bay! Though hopefully there won't be a mismatch again next time, for I would love to wrestle him on the mats next time!!
Ich habe "alpinisto" inzwischen mehrfach getroffen.
Als Gast beim Training unseres Vereins ...
... und beim 15. Internationalen Ringer-Camp 2015 in Lindow (nahe Berlin).
Es war stets ein interessanter Kampf und ich freue mich schon auf weitere Kämpfe bei uns im Verein und beim nächsten Camp im Mai 2016.
Ich kann "alpinisto" empfehlen.
Ich bin mehrmals mit René gerungen, und bei Einsteiger in Berlin hat er sich immer als zuverlässiger Ringerpartner gezeigt. René ist erheblich schwerer als ich, aber er hat gezeigt wie man trotzdem Freude bei Ringen haben kann. Ich werde zwar immer mit meine Schultern in der Matte enden, aber bis dahin gibt er mich die Möglichkeit, mehr Erfahrung bein Ringen einzusammeln. Weil von Erfahrung hat René viel, und er hat nichts dagegen, die weiterzugeben. So René ringe ich immer wieder gern!
Really nice experience to wrestle outdoors place. In a park...
I was able to wrestle this hot guy for the few hours he had in Copenhagen, and lacking the place and space to wrestle in my apartment we wrestled in a local park, even though this eliminated the possibility of making an erotic ending of the match. But it was nice to wrestle him, he knew a few tricks which I was not prepared for, and I inevitably had to submit in the end. Now I can only look forward to the revenge match!
At the International Wrestler's Camp in Lindow we had a good chance to meet a variety of other wrestlers. One of them was lerderraufer, who became my training partner for Sunday. Lerderraufer was a bit lighter than me, but he seemed to have more experience, so this way we were pretty even in the wrestle. It was good to meet this bunch of wrestlers in the camp, and lerderraufer was no exception. For being on equal terms I could have a good match and build a sweat with him, which we both were happy about. Off the mat he was also a friendly chap which I was happy to share a beer with after our match. With a bit of luck we will meet again at next year's wrestling camp!
Had some good grapples with alpinisto during the open mat sessions over the four days of the International Wrestlers' Camp in Lindow (Mark). He was also my training partner for many of the beginners' coaching sessions so we got to grips with each other a decent amount. He's a very gentlemanly wrestler and didn't take advantage of his size to dominate me, but instead allowed us both to work on improving our technique. A really nice, friendly and sociable guy to share a beer with afterwards too, so he is highly recommended and I'm looking forward to another wrestle with him.
At the International Wrestler's Camp in Lindow, Squashlad became my training partner for most of the coaching sessions, and it was really great to wrestle him every day. Although he said that he was a beginner just like me, he appeared to be very serious on the mat, and he used each and every opportunity to improve his skills, especially during the open mat sessions. When we wrestled he invited me to be more brutal in my wrestle, which I apparently have some lack in, and he welcomed me to practise the moves on him. Off the mat he is also a very friendly lad, and I indeed hope that I can wrestle him again, if not at next year's wrestling camp then maybe in London!
I am so excited about having met this cool and extremely friendly guy.He is strong enough to take you down to the mat and has a lot of stamina.He respected our rules and he gave me a pretty strong, fun and safe game.Looking forward for our rematch.Highly recommented!
I had the luck to wrestle Georgeath while in Athens, and it became probably the best fight I have ever had. For with him being a tad more experienced than I was ruled out my slight weight advantage, so this way we were on the same level. Georgeath has a good body and he knows how to use it, furthermore he is intelligent and quickly finds the best way to get out of a problem. Never before I have shed so much sweat in a wrestling match, and it felt nice doing so with Georgeath. With his intelligence and passion for wrestling he indeed is a rising star in the wrestling skies, so I can recommend this guy very very much. If you get the chance to wrestle Georgeath, do so. Don’t leave Greece without this experience!
I had an excellent time with him on a pro style tag team bout! We took it easy and had tons of fun. What a nice experience! Outside of the mats he's very friendly and polite person!
I was invited to wrestle Greekprofantasy, but at that time little did I know what to expect. We were going to have a tag team match in pro style, and I had never done any of this, but I was looking forward to seeing what prostyle was about! Greekprowrestler is a remarkably strong guy, which I got a good impression of once he had stripped to his speedos, and he revealed shins the size of other guys’ thighs, and thighs even bigger! Though after the match I realised that he had kept most of his arsenal in the sheaths; they were used on my tag team partner grjobber instead (sorry, Nikos). His only task with me was to keep me at bay, and why expend extra energy when he could do so with one hand in a pocket? Indeed it was a good learning lesson for me!
El Greco was one of several wrestlers whom I had planned to meet during my long weekend in Athens, and with him I could be sure that I would be subbed. El Greco is both strong, very agile and has arms as to span the whole mat. But he is also safe and sane, and he had no problems in settling down on my level. Sometimes this made me feel like was I just a pupil in school, but I knew that he was doing this just so I can get more experience, and as soon as we were out of the classroom I immediately got to know what wrestling was about. I had read in other recommandations about his viscious scissors, but still it several times happened that I got trapped in them. Then he had time to wait for me to tap out, he just gradually increased the pressure until I inevitably had to tap out. Indeed he inspired me to do more, and I am sure that he will be ready at a second visit to check if I have improved. El Greco is a very friendly guy and I can only give him my best recommandation!
I met Jan this week.
He is strong, but sometimes doesn't know what to do next. :-) Give him a bit more time and he might be pretty dangerous.
A nice guy. Rather on the receiving side. Take your chances.
I had a short bout with fghtr on grjobber’s mats when I was in Athens, as I was a bit anxious if I could handle this big guy. But he was very good in adapting to my level, and I would say we had a very amusing fight, which was promising for our tag team match the following day. Michael is not the fastest wrestler, but when he sees an opening in his opponent’s defense you will need seven strong horses to stop him, and in worst case he can make use of his weight advantage, which he in most situations have the honour not to make use of. This guy is nice to meet, both on and off the mats, and I can easily recommend him. I am already looking forward to our next bout, hopefully a bit longer then!
Alpinisto is a nice genuine guy, he arrived as promised and on time.
Lots of nice talking and rolling on the mats. He showed good resistance and didn't mind too much ending up with his back on the mat.
I wish him a good time and many like-minded opponents.
Ulrich hat mich in Januar als Favorite markiert - nur schade dass ich so weit entfernt wohne. Er könnte aber nicht wissen dass ich nur wenige Wochen später aus andere Gründe auf Durchreise Zürich besuchen wurde. So er hat mich in den Flughafen abgeholt, und nachträglich haben wir einen guten Fight zusammen gehabt. Ulrich hatte schon Angst gehabt wegen meine Grösse, aber die sollte er nicht fürchten, ausserdem hatte ich nach langem
'Winterschlaf' nicht viel machen können. Aber es ist mir trotzdem gelungen, ihn ein paar Mal im Griff zu halten; ein einzele Mal könnte ich sogar meine Beinschere zu ein Spladle ausbauen. Das war ersten Mal ich ein anderer zum austapsen gebracht hat - obwohl während unser Fight ich es meistens machte! Es war sehr schön mit Ulrich zu ringen - und ich möchte sehr gern wieder mit ihn ringen nächste Mal ich in Zürich bin!
Meet this strong extremely hairy teddy bear for a hotel yesterday evening. Although alpinisto has been only wrestling for a short while, He can hold his own and is a pleasure and enjoyable guy to wrestle.
l hope to meet him again when he's this way again.
On Saturday I was to meet this guy for a match in my hotel room which was an enjoyable fight, in which he several times tried to make me submit. But I didn't want to give him that pleasure, and the result was very sweaty. MEGRAPPLE is a safe and sane wrestler, both on and off the mats and it will be nice to wrestle him again next time!
I had been challenged by Keith to wrestle him, and as I liked the idea of wrestling him I had kept him on file for half a year until we would have a chance to meet. Last Friday our plans met and we could finally meet for a real bout. Keith had suggested that we should meet at the Barnet matroom, and that made me curious, as we don't have any matrooms what I know of in Copenhagen. Barnet matroom was an excellent place to use, and we had a nice long match there, although it could easily have been longer. Keith was a nice guy to wrestle, and even though he is heavier than me I have never seen this as an excuse for not wrestling. This way I can only gain more experience, and at least it would be a good muscle workout for me. Wrestling Keith I felt I learned a bit, for I soon realised that I had to work harder, and maybe Keith also learned something. I am sure we are both looking forward to a repeat match next time I come to London! At least I am!
Had a gutpunching match with Jan a couple of days ago. Although he hadn't been gutpunched before, he was an eager target for my fists and we both had a great time as I pushed his limits. He's a friendly guy and a good laugh too :-)
Simon has an amazing body, and I guess the fewest guys would like to have their guts punched by this mountain of muscle. Yet I had a good feeling about him, and since I have always liked to put challenges on my body I found that he could show me what gutpunching was all about. And indeed he could! As expected he was both sane and safe, although I some time felt I was at the wrong end of a sledgehammer!
Simon is a great guy, and I wouldn't mind challenge him again once my bruises are healed!
I met Jan while he was in Australia staying at his friend's place at Laidley. We had a great time wrestling in an outdoor setting - he put up strong resistance but I managed to subdue him eventually when I trapped him in some tight headscissors.
I can strongly recommend Jan both as a great guy and a fun wrestler should your travels take you to Copenhagen. Ian
For a long time I had wished to challenge this guy, but Australia seemed too far away. But this summer I was lucky to visit another Australian friend, and when Ian could meet up with me at that time it was possible to have a match. And I must say that Ian was great wrestling with, as he has a lot of experience and it was great rolling around with him. Ian has some good muscle, he knows how to use it, and more than once I was trapped between his steely legs. But he never overdid it, and it was great to have a serious match with him. And sure he got his way in the end, but it is never wrong to give in to the better fighter. This match was an outdoor one and I would love to rematch him once opportunity arises.
Alpinisto was reliable on time and wrestled enthusiastically. Although he has a medical condition which limits him as long as this is discussed beforehand an enjoyable wrestle can still be achieved. He is a good conversationalist and a funny guy.
Perseus had challenged me two months before, but reading his profile I got a bit anxious that he could simply tie me in knots once we met! But this was not so, as Perseus appeared to be a sane and very safe wrestler, and it was a pleasure wrestling him. Although strong as a bull he let me do most of the work, this way saving his own strength for when he felt it was time for him to show how wrestling should be done! Which was a great learning lesson for me. Unfortunately I don't visit the UK so often, otherwise I would be keen for wrestling him more often, though still I hope for a second bout with him. He is a friendly guy both on and off the mats, and it was nice to finish a wrestle day with him and his friends over a couple of beers in the local pub. Indeed a very recommended wrestler!
Alpinisto is a relative novice but reliable, enthusiastic and good company. His medical condition places some limitations which he is open to discuss and careful guys can work around.
Coming to Chelmsford I was in for a serious wrestling day, and I was happy to get the chance to wrestle hardfitsub there. Though he is lighter than me we turned out being pretty even, my health problem leveling out my weight advantage, though I never really made him submit. But I really enjoyed the long fights we had, and I will be happy to wrestle him again!
Met Jan today whilst he was on a visit to the UK.
Had great fun on the mats with him and there was plenty of holds applied both sides throughout our meet.
Safe and sane on the mats and a pleasure to spend time with over a pint afterwards in the pub.
Hope you didn't fall asleep on the train back.
Lovely guy, Highly recommended.
Mark came as a positive bonus when yesterday I was in Chelmsford for wrestling. Before that day I had never wrestled more than one guy a day, but with Mark being an unexpected participant I ended up wrestling three guys on the same day, giving me a clear feeling that various wrestlers are different. Mark is surprisingly fast and very agile, so you have to keep a good eye on him when in a wrestle if you'd like to have a chance to run the show. Probably we had both wrestled for too long time that day, for the end of the match saw us both lying down panting on the mat! It would be great to wrestle him again when the opportunity arises. And yes, I did fall asleep in the train, even before it reached London!
It was a pure coincidence that I happened to meet Steve for wrestling, but it turned out to become one of the best matches I have ever had. He sure has some good strong legs and I had been warned about his scissors, but I soon found that he had other aces up his sleeve. Even though he was controlling most of the bout it really was great to wrestle him and there are plenty of reasons to return to Darlington for a repeat match.
Met Jan for a match - and we had big fun. He´s a nice man, and a good fighter. Had a good laugh, too. Always can recommend him and will be glad we can meet again one day !!!
I was happy to meet Joerg for a match during a stopover in Frankfurt Airport, and this was probably the best way to spend a few hours. Joerg is a strong guy, but he is also good and safe to wrestle. Wrestling him he always make sure that you know who is on top and then hold back, inviting you to go for another lunge. Which to me as a newcomer is a very valuable way to try different variations and techniques. Thus I will be happy to do a second match with this guy at any time!
Met Jan a few years ago for a fun wrestle and despite being a novice he definitely enjoys a pro style grapple and is totally safe and sane. A genuinely nice and fun guy on and off the mats. Would recommend this great dane as he is only going to improve with more matches under his belt.
Neil was the first guy to offer me a wrestling match, and I must say that he was a good and patient teacher, and with him it was okay to wrestle just for the fun of it. Had I known him before I would probably have started wrestling much earlier. To me as a novice it was nice to get the possibility to experiment with what would work and what would not. With Niel I had the great combination of seriousness and fun, so naturally I returned for a second match later the same year. However, we never finished this match, so we still have a round to go, a decisive round. So I hope I can meet up with him again so we can finish this match!
