14th march 2017
Another excellent meet at Barnet today , strong, and a great opponent
cheers Dadwrtestle see you soon .
This guy never fails to deliver a hot, intense battle on the mats!
Despite the weight differential, I had to work really hard to keep this wrestler at bay! We had a great sweat drenched few hours on the mats in a fast and furious submission grapple! He awlways deivers a good match on the mats. Time wise always reliable. He's there when he says he will be. This is one skilled, fun, tough opponent! dont miss your chance if he challenges you. ROLL ON THE NEXT BATTLE!
I have met this tough wrestler over the years both in a 1to1 situation and at group meets in UK. He's a skilled, fun guy who loves his wrestling! If he challenges you, you will be sure to have a good few hours of intense wrestling activity. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
After talking about a match for many years, I was in the UK an had the Honor of meeting Dadwrestle face to face singlet to singlet ! A wonderful Gentleman and Host, he gave me one Hell of a good sweaty submission Wrestle ! I am sure he will give you one as well !
Despite trouble with his arm, this GREAT USA wrestler took me on in a visit to London. As ever, am amazing experience!! By the way, he can deliver a tough gut punch, so beware! He's got skill, style and huge enthusiasm which makes any meet a 100% fun event!
Was the greatest of pleasures to host this star of the mats on MY mats in London few years back! He was a best of opponents; tough, strong, imaginative! Huge fund of great stories, I only wish there wasn't the Pond between us. Roll on another visit to UK! 100% Gold Star recommendation.
It has been an age since I wrestled Dadwrestle, firstly he is still as strong of not stronger.
Excellent submission bout, managed to get a submission once, and kept working when down.
Dadwrestle is a gentleman off the mats and very highly recommended.
He is willing to give pointers and to let you practice them which i am always grateful for.
Certainly will be a rematch
After many a long year, we met up again today at the Walthamstow ring! Easy to arrange to meet, punctual and ready to wrestle. He's coming back into action after some time out and is hitting the gym. It shows. Hes strong, determined and a natural wrestler. We had a great two hours, mainly submission wrestling. It was a great pleasure to get the rematch under our belts and I look forward to many more bouts the the months ahead. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Paul and I have met some number of times over the years and have always had a great time, making each other work damned hard and loving every minute of it. Away from the mats an equally good guy, great company, great host and gentleman. Next battle overdue but can't wait
I had an excellent bout with dadwrestle at my place at short notice. He arrived on time and was very friendly. Although we were different weights, the bout was very satisfactory and long and sweaty, which is what I like. I well recommend you meet up if you are in London as he has a mat room of his own.
Was in South West again so couldnt resist locking up with this muscle guy again! He NEVER disappoints on the mats. Excellent host too. Not to be missed!
The rematch! I reckon this muscle guy is harder that ever! Iron arm muscles make him hard to tap! Amazing host; very generous with time and space. Excellent mats for wrestling too. Time on the mats with this wrestler is always FUN!
This was a last minute arrangement! Despite the weight difference we had a great bout. This wrestler has a superb physique, is strong and has excellent stamina! We raised a good sweat, and traded some good submissions. This guy comes with the highest recommendations, as a host and as an opponent! Don't miss the chance of sampling his mats if you are in the South West! 100% real thing!!
Had the great pleasure of locking up with dorsetgrappler today. He getting back into the wrestling world after a break, but don't underestimate him. Hes strong and remembers his moves. He's totally safe and sane. He was a bit late because of traffic but let me know at once. I look forward to hitting the mats with him again soon. Definitely a warm, enthusiastic recommendation!! Don't miss out on taking this wrestler on!
Wow Dadwrestle is as strong as a Ox and has some great moves..
Really nice guy who will give you a good hard wrestle.
looking forward to our next match.
Last minute match, but what a great experience! It was easy to set up this meet, and toplad is safe, sane, and fun to wrestle. We decided on an oil match because of the difference in weight. He's as tough as he looks in his photos. Great arms, so watch out! There's power there. We are most definitely set for a rematch soon. 100% Recommended!
Had a great wrestle with dadwrestle at Barnet Mat Room the other week. He is a strong old bugger and we had a real go at each other on the mats. A really nice guy who gave me some hints on moves during the fight which I will use in future bouts. Looking forward to our next fight
Fought dadwrestle again on 10 December. Really enjoyed it - he is good fun on and off the mats and a strong bugger. He won, but I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Again he taught me some new moves. A great guy
Fought dadwrestle again on 8th Feb. Another great session. He has plenty of tricks up his sleeve which he uses to keep me in my place. I continue to learn a lot from him. A great guy to wrestle and fun off the mats as well... A really nice guy
Now this is one hot new heavyweight! This rookie has only been on the mats for a few weeks, but he is picking up the "trade" pretty damn quick! He looks the bruiser, but is in fact a real gent, safe, sane and fun.We had a superb battle on the Barnet mats. He looks the part in gear and certainly delivers on the mats. I look forward to Round 2. If you get a challenge from this wrestler...ACCEPT! You won't be disappointed. Watch out, too, he learns quickly! 100% Recommended!
Round 2: Another great session with this big, strong tough guy on the Barnet mats. Simply can't recommend him enough!
Round 3: As predicted, this bruiser goes from strength to strength! He's using his power at the start of each session with skill and determination. Watch out for his killer face bar! Only way to keep him down is to keep him back to canvas....whatever it takes! Hugely enjoyable to wrestle: great fun off the mats!
Talk about baptism of fire. I can hardly move. Dadwrestle is one hell of a wrestler. So strong, so fast and so inventive. Fantastic guy off the mats too. Very patient with my lack of knowledge. There will be a return bout.... oh yes.
This GREAT heavyweight just gets better and better! He bring imagination, strength and fun to our bouts! I was again squashed at a small group meet at Barnet, but I got my revenge!
Now I have to admit, this bruiser beat me tonight! He was on TOP FORM! Went in for the kill! Beware though, bushchub, REVENGE IS SWEET!
Now this is a real Brit Pro heavyweight! We met tonight for the first time. He's a rookie, but as strong as an ox! Great power in his upper body. Just wait until he's picked up some tricks....he will be even more of a handful! Really nice guy off the mats too!!
Does this wrestler look good in his gear, or not!? The perfect heavyweight look. One BIG powerhouse on the mats. He can deliver submission or pro with ease. Bring what you've got to a match up with him. You will need it! In pro, he can sell a move better than anyone else I've wrestled! Ace guy off mats too!
Had the pleasure of meeting up with Dadwrestle on his trip north and boy did it not disappoint, with a two hour rough and tumble session, I soon found myself out of my league, he's one tough fella but safe and sane, even managed a few pints afterwards making for a very enjoyable evening
100% recommendation from me.
Met Paul at the group meet at Manchester and it was a great start to a great group meet. He is a very strong, experienced grappler who give me a hard but very enjoyable grapple. He can go from standing smiling and chatting with you to pinning you down in a blink of an eye, very impressive for a big guy. 100% recommend this safe and sane wrestler, look forward to meeting again in the future.
Had the chance to lock up again with this lovely guy on a visit to the North East! We had a good few hours of tussle, which was a great experience! He's as strong as ever....don't be fooled by the innocent smile! He's a toughy! Roll on my next visit north!
A newbie he might be, but this is one strong, tough, fun guy to hit the mats with!! We met at a meet in Manchester and it was the first session for both of us! It was a perfect beginning to a great day. He learns quickly and is no pushover!! I look forward to facing up to this wrestler again.....as soon as possible. Safe, sane and fun, on and off the mats. 100% Recommendation here!
The agreed rule was "no headshots" and we both took full advantage of the lack of other rules.
This is a tough man and he took every blow that I gave him (including one accidental punch to the back of his head).
I'd recommend Paul to anyone; especially if they are after a rough NHB match. He can give it out and take it.
May 23rd; Round two. Another bruising encounter with Paul. he must enjoy a pounding from these Geordie fists as he keeps coming back for more. And more. I had a great time and repeat that I'd recommend him to anyone for a NHB fight.
21/April/2015 My latest meet with Paul and another great match. Starting as soon as we got in his room we fought for a couple of hours with the same NHB rules. I'll admit to being sore afterwards but it was well worth it. He is one of the stars of this site and gets a 100% recommendation from me.
13/August/2016 - a long awaited meeting with Paul at Pippa's today at John's meet. It's always good to see him and, of course, to fight him. A match in the ring was followed later by a too brief 3way tag match. I must be doing something right as I finally managed to stop him getting on top of me and I think i actually got him to submit. Of course I could be imagining that! Thanks again Paul mate.
28/1/2017 Round 5 (I think) and the best yet. That is mainly because I finally and definitely got the tough bugger to sub. We had a good, fun match with subs on both sides. It is always a pleasure to meet Paul whether socially or to wrestle and look forward to our next meeting.
Had to face this scrapper on his own turf! He's beefed up and trains regularly, so is even more of a handful than he was before! AS ALWAYS a hot, hard , fun fight. He had the upper hand early in the fight but I evened things up a bit as time wore on. I got in some good body punches, I am glad to say! This is one great, regular, exciting grappler who always delivers on the mats. Off the mats, he is the best tour guide out! This Tynesider gets the highest recommendation I can give! Platinum Star 100% Recommended!
Just as good, if not better, than our other fights! This is a wrestler who loves to get down to it...as I do! He is muscled and strong, and packs a good punch. We were both pretty knackered by the end of the fight, as it should be. This is one of the guys from this site who I most enjoy taking on. Its an intense session but fun. Off the mats, the conversation flows! Roll on Round 4!!
ROUND 2: Have to admit, this was an even better session than the first AND I have to admit I was beaten this time by the better man! Long hard sweaty full on scrap! Some great knees to the gut from him to me too! 100% genuine guy! Wrestles to agreed rules, safe n sane. GREAT GUY all round, on and off mats!
This was one of the best fights I've had! This guy has a great physique; broad shouldered, well muscled, strong! We agreed rules and fought by them. He punches HARD!!! he turned up exactly when he said he would; safe, sane reliable. fun guy off mats, really tough, mean and intense on them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We plan to fight again SOON!
Good trustworth guy kept to his promises about times and is considerate. I don't know about underestimating my own strength but he certainly has some of his own and took some time to find myself ways of getting out of his holds. He knows his stuff if you are inexperienced and explained a few holds we tried, how they work and how to get out of them.
I took advantage of a trip to Newcastle to get in touch with this wrestler! Whatever your appetite, this guy delivers more than fish and chips! Easy to make arrangements with, safe, sane and reliable. This wrestler might still be lacking in wrestling experience, but what he might lack in skill, he makes up for in enthusiasm! We had a good two hours of trading holds. He is tall and underestimates his own strength....so beware! Highly recommended!! I look forward to Round 2!
After a long gap, I hooked up again with this well known wrestler when I was visiting Newcastle! He was in fine form, much stronger than I remembered. He had some crafty moves up his sleeve, so I had to work hard. Safe, sane and keen! I have no hesitation is recommending this man of the mats! Meet him....you will have fun!
It was a great pleasure meeting this veteran of meetfighters. I was quite impressed by the number of his past opponents (and recommendations), so I did not hesitate to accept the challenge. Dadwrestle is a big and strong fella and should never be underestimated; I have no doubts that he was able to squash many of his past opponents. For me this was a very fun meet and that's all that matters!
Mnnnn....well sometimes you just have to admit it! I was COMPLETELY outclassed by this amazing wrestler! He is totally safe, sane and easy to make arrangements with. Off the mats hes charming and great to chat with. On the mats, he is fast, skilled, amazingly strong and devastating (in a fun way!). Added to this, he has a physique anyone would be proud of! Hes also pretty good looking too! So its no surprise I got my arse kicked! The one sub I got...I had to cheat (I know, ME cheat?!) So all in all, this is one ACE stud fighter. 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION! If he challenges you, accept. You wont be disappointed!
After a few years of not managing a meet, I met up today with this beefy heavyweight Brit Pro wrestler in the Walthamstow Ring! He made all the arrangements and despite fog and traffic we both arrived on time. We had two solid hours give 'n take old style Brit Pro. This isn't my usual fight style, but it was a blast! Safe and sane, but great to use a ring. We plan Round 2 soon. This guy knows his way around the WofS wrestling world. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! If he challenges you...ACCEPT!
Met "Dad Wrestle" on his mats for a Friday rumble. Last time we meet he equalised and the score was even. Arrived Friday to gain the advantage and could'nt lets his well experience wrestler beat me again. I was out to prove I wasn't a push over. After an hours powerful, sweaty and intents wrestle, and after plenty of submission later. My job was done and I was victor. But had to continuing attack and defend myself from this experience man.
"Dad wrestle" is a guaranteed conpetative wrestle. Never under estimate this wrestler. If you do he will use it to his advantage and win the match.
Will meet again in the future for sure, and encourage you to take on and experience the skill and ability "Dad wrestle"!!!
Sat 14th January 2017
Finally managed to have a rematch with this fine "experienced" wrestler. As per usual he didn't disappoint. I last meet him years ago when I first joined meet fighters. Then I was shy, bashful and inexperienced but over the years gained more confidence skill and ability to make this rematch a more competitive tougher for dad wrestle. The match itself, had its worth of submissions from both sides. Neither of us "came out on top" but both were happy and satisfied that we had a good afternoon's wrestling.
I had forgotten just how much fun this wrestler is on the mats! After a good few years just missing each other, we had a good two hour subs match at Barnet. I am delighted to say there were equal subs on both sides! Strong, tough and sanely aggressive this is one classy wrestler!
100% recommendation with a Gold Star!
Rematch was GREAT!! We met on my mats yesterday.This guy gets tougher and tougher to handle on mats! We had a long, sweaty submission wrestle which was pretty even! A pleasure to wrestle.
After a long period trying to plan a meet we finally locked up yesterday afternoon, and it was WORTH WAITING FOR! This guy is tough, strong, reliable and skilled. He delivered a good even wrestle to multiple submission. The next meet cannot come soon enough! Don't miss the chance of taking this guy to the mats!
I met Paul on my mats again yesterday he is a strong reliable and competitive man. He ensures both men enjoy the match looking forward to another roll in the new year
2014 l met Paul today he is still a big strong man.
We had a good hard battle on the mats and an enjoyable bout both ways
Had pleasure of locking up with this tough wrestler again after a long break. He's beefed up and is MUCH stronger than he used to be. We had a long, sweaty session on his mats with subs on both sides. He's a great host, tas ever. Dont miss the chance of wrestling this guy....hes safe, sane, tough and fun!!
After another long gap, I hit the mats with Pete again yesterday! Hes been hitting the gym in the meantime!! Bulked up on the shoulders and arms nicely! Added to his strength too. Always a good host; great mats to wrestle on. We are promised a rematch!
Met up with pete again after a long break. He's a great host, good mats to wrestle on! He's a big, tough guy, who wrestles hard. looking forward to a New Year rematch!
I am so pleased that I have had the opportunity to meet Paul today.
He is a truly likeable guy and great fun to be with.
Not only is he extremely courteous, but he respected my weaknesses and encouraged me to express myself as well as helping me with with a few positioning holds.
I look forward to many future meetings and his friendship too.
This was a last minute arrangement after this wrestler had been badly let down by a "no show"! This is one enthusiastic rookie. Safe and sane, he was up for trying lots of moves. This was an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Good to see, too, another BIG guy on the UK wrestling scene. As he gains in skill and confidence he will become quite a challenge. Don't miss out on a match if he invites you! I will be up for a rematch! Highly recommended!
Paul is a great guy to wrestle. Good fun too. Never a dull moment. You won't be disappointed.
After a long break, met up again with this wrestler at Barnet mat room. He's looking good as ever in gear, with a great physique, especially his arms. We had a good, fun, sweaty roll for an hour or two! Was great to lock up again after all this time!
This is one great guy to wrestle! We have met regularly over the years. Tough, strong, reliable, hes a skilled wrestler who enjoys the struggle on the mats. HIGHLY recommended!
Having seen his exceptional recommendations on this website, I was not hesitant to wrestle him. I was looking for a safe yet rough opponent, indeed he is. Follow to our brief phone conversation which he fairly pointed out that if he faces a lighter opponent he does not use his weight to win, we set up a submission & body punching match in Barnet. We wrestled for more than two hours and he carefully and patiently showed me some moves which I really hope to develop further.
'The Boss' is an highly skilled UK wrestler with powerful legs and a lot of stamina. As a result of his numerous years of wrestling experience, he perfectly knows his staff and to adjust according to his opponents' fight skills. 100% highly recommended for those who are genuinely up to fight, he is also a chatty and interesting person on and off the mat.
I am raring to wrestle him again soon, 'Boss' round two!
Sometimes a distinct weight difference makes for a good match! This was certainly the case with this UK based Italian wrestler. Fixing the meet was straightforward, and he was incredibly punctual. Once on the mats, he had the qualities of a tiger!! We had agreed that body punching was OK. So guys....be warned! He packs a solid punch! We wrestled for just under 3 hours. I showed him a few moves which he very quickly turned against me! TOTALLY safe and sane but that that sense of wrestling aggression that makes for a great encounter. He still counts himself as a rookie, but he is learning fast! This was a perfect way to burn off some Christmas fat! This wrestler is fun on and off the mats. Not to be missed! 100% RECOMMENDATION! Roll on Round 2!!!
19/12/16 Had a trip to Barnet mat room to meet this fantastic wrestler again. Will echo my previous recommendation. Paul is such a great wrestler and always so much fun to be with and get to grips with!! Had a wonderful time and will happily recommend him to anyone who enjoys a great wrestle with a real great guy.
Had the pleasure of meeting Paul yesterday. He's a great guy, powerful, strong, very skilled wrestler but totally safe and sane - got some amazing holds which will really test you but also respects limits. He's also a really genuinely nice guy who loves his wrestling and enjoys having fun as the big bad heel! Highly recommended and hope for a rematch!
Now this wrestler never fails to deliver on the mats!! He travelled down to Barnet for an afternoon session. We got up a good sweat, and wrestled a good few hours. Great fun; totally reliable!
REALLY enjoyed locking up with this great heavyweight on his mats! We had a perfect Brir Pro session, he looks good in the gear and delivers on the mats. Definitely safe and sane, and the perfect host! Rematch will follow soon, I hope!! Dont miss out on this Midlands rassler!
I met Dadwrestle a few times at Hackney matroom. Great guy to roll with. He used his size to his advantage and got a fair few pins out of me. A gentleman on and off the mats. A pleasure to meet and wrestle.
Finally had the chance to meet the legendary Dadwrestle. I was quite nervous prior to our match.. Let's face it; It's not everyday you wrestle someone with close to 300 past opponents. And me having next to no experience myself.. Ahem.
Dadwrestle is, as expected, a very good wrestler. He's truly experienced, very strong and knows many holds.
Don't let his lovely smile, and charming voice lure you into a false sense of safety; once you're on the mats, you're on your own! He is out to win!
Realiable, lots and lots of fun! I'm waiting for a rematch.
Whatever you do, don't fall for the good looks, great physique and the winning smile! This guy is a serious wrestler with skills on the mats. Don't underestimate him. He's strong, fast and imaginative on the mats, and out to win! Most enjoyable match up at a group meeting in Manchester. Safe, sane, reliable FUN! Don't miss the chance of meeting up. 100% recommendation...Gold Star even!
Finally got to meet and wrestle another of the big legends from Meetfighter! Dadwrestle made me feel welcome on arrival and it was like we had know each other for ages. He is obviously a big tough guy to wrestle but always safe and enjoyable on the mats. Looking forward to round 2 with the big man!
WOW! Now this is one class act! Met this awesome grappler at a meet in Manchester. He a blast of a time....being completely owned on the mats! This wrestler is skilled, fast and fun! He has a tight, muscled build which he uses to great advantage. Safe, sane but competitive he delivers an intense highly enjoyable match. If I get the chance there will most definitely be a Round 2! 100% Gold Star Recommended!
After far too long we made contact again! What a great host! I was part of a four way group meeting. This is one long standing, fun, experienced wrestler, who knows how to make a bout work. His mats were down quickly and we had a great evening's wrestling. Off the mats, he has a wonderful sense of humour and couldn't do more to make his guests feel relaxed and welcome. 100% recommendation. A real star of the UK wrestling scene.
True, this is a big guy, but I had seen from his recommendations that he was also a responsible one, so had no hesitation about accepting his challenge. Was glad I did. It was a lot of fun, particularly when he reached into his bag of dirty tricks for an underhanded move. Had a great time! And he kindly saved me the hike up to the mat room by picking me up at the station. A gent!
What a great guy!!! I saw this awesome, skilled wrestler was in town, but hesitated because of the weight difference. I need have had no worries! He took as many subs off me as he pleased. We had a good two hours on the mats, which were fun, intense and extremely enjoyable. I did manage (I think) two submissions! This wrestler is fit, strong, agile and fast. But he's also charming, with an excellent sense of humour. This was one of those meets that I would not have missed for the world.
100% GOLD STAR recommendation!
I met Paul at Barnet on 27th October and although the match was quite short it was also quite hard work for this novice. Paul put me through my paces and was very respectful to me bearing in mind that my lack of experience. Paul is a strong guy and some one who is deserving of respect. He certainly has it from me. Even when I was on top he seemed to be telling me what to do next and then before I knew it he was getting out of what I thought was going to be my first sub from him. Some chance, I lost count of the number of subs he got from me but I would not have missed it for all the tea in China.
Well worthy every minute
A top recommendation from this novice
After a little on line conversation we fixed a meet. This wrestler was prompt and totally reliable. He is still rather nervous of this wrestling game, but shouldnt be. He strong and wants to grapple. He simply needs more mat experience and he will be fine!
Enigma and the Dad have battled, he is a good strong wrestler and he is not intimidated by anyone, a top wrestler indeed and he owned the lad at the end of this contest. He milked his lad until he twitched. My cock well and truly emptied as he pinned me and admired his work. Fed his lad wrestler cock too.
This is one gold star, top wrestler! Met him in his mat room in past. He delivers a tough, intense hard bout, but always safe and sane. He's always a joy to wrestle, imaginative and with great stamina. I owned him, and milked him. So, if you get the chance, accept his challenge! You won't regret it! 100% recommended!!
What great comments can I add to this recommendation that haven't been said by so many before me? Check the recommendations out for yourself!
Long story short...
If you have not wrestled this man, do yourself a favour and send him a match request and WRESTLE HIM AS SOON AS YOU CAN!
Dadwrestle was one of the first guys I ever wrestled and still one of the best.
He will give you a total battle on the mats and be an AWESOME friend off the mats.
Few wrestlers, in my experience, can get near to his combination of skills, determination, love of wrestling along with his friendship.
He is totally reliable (you can probably set your watch to his sense of timing:) and will NOT let you down.
This man is not just tough as a rock, he's a diamond :)
Appreciate dadwrestle and get on the mats with him.
You will have a GREAT time !
I am proud to give dadwrestle my highest possible recommendation.
Great to see this skilled wrestler on Meetfighters! We have been regular opponents over the years in lots of different locations! Big, strong build, tough on the mats but completely safe and sane. Hes reliable; will show up when he says he will. He will give you a thorough wrestling workout, testing you to your limits! 100% recommended!
I have wrestled dadwrestle several times over the years.Although he is much heavier than me we have always had a great wrestle.He adapts well to the weight difference between us.He is a stronge safe wrestler and I always enjoyed trying to give the bugger what for !.
Great guy,100% safe and I would like to wrestle him again one day.
Now here is a "blast from the past"! I used to meet this tall, wiry wrestler at group meets in the Midlands when there was a mat room near Nottingham. Although there's a huge weight difference he never backed off from a challenge. He's fit and strong, and as the label says, "supple"! Dont underestimate this guy! Great to see him on Meetfighters! 100% recommendation for a safe, sane, fun match up!
Dadwrestle is a powerful, extremely experienced and skillful wrestler who knows his stuff. I value his experience, knowledge and compassion. Good sense of humour. Totally reliable, save and sane. He really put me through my paces, tough and strong, as he is. He adjusted to my clumsy efforts well and taught me well. I'm hoping to have many more bouts with him. I wholeheartedly recommend dadwrestle to anyone of any strengh and skill level.
We managed to arrange a time to meet up on one of this big guy's regular visits to UK. And, damn, it was well worth it. This is one strong, tough heavyweight! He claims to be a newcomer, but he possesses that natural gift for wrestling. He is fast on his feet and on the mats, and learns very quickly. If you agree strikes, he delivers fast and furious! Off the mats we enjoyed a good chat. Totally reliable, turning up exactly on time; safe and sane. This wrestler comes with a 100% recommendation. We have both agreed there will be a Round 2 as soon as possible!
Dadwrestle is very strong, especially with his legs. He knows how to press on the opponent with his body. I recommend you to be very dtrong the day you fight him. Nice guy too!
WOW! What a great person, on and off the mats! On the mats I was TOTALLY out-wrestled! But this grappler is a very patient teacher too. Thank you! Off the mats, he is charming, interesting to chat with and fun! He's safe, sane, skilled with a very strong physique. I can't recommend him too highly. If you get the chance, meet him! 100% Gold Star recommendation!
I had a great, hard, match today with DadWrestle who had traveled a long way to try out me & my mats. My mats survived but not so sure I did! I think I was able to hold my own (sometimes!) against his superior experience. ...and weight!
He said he enjoyed the visit and it's good to have achieved being on his long list of 'clients'!
Good to meet again ...but not this week or next! If you want a good match and a long workout then I can recommend DadWrestle. I don't think I will need a gym workout for a few days anyway.
I had been apprehensive about taking this guy on, I must admit! The drive to mid-Wales was amazing on a brilliant August day, and the warm welcome I received on arrival matched the scenery and dispelled all worries. We hit the mats in his well equipped mat room almost at once and there followed over 3 hours of tough, intense wrestling. This is one strong opponent. He can power out of holds with ease! He looks great in his gear, as his pics show. This must be one of the best wrestlers I have ever squared up against. Safe, sane, fun and a perfect host! He's the master of the bacon butty in the post-fight entertainment. Dont worry about the journey....the wrestling that follows is top quality! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation! Roll on the next visit!
Paul apparently has met with the world world and his wife on the mats.
This is how I ended up on the mats with him at Pippa's. Despite my limited experience it was really fun and enjoyable as Paul knows very well what he is doing.
Really enjoyed all the exchanges with the 'wrestling agent provocateur'.
Definitely recommend him too anyone who wants some serious or less serious wrestling.
Take care my friend, and hopefully see you next.
Met this great Frenchman at a meet in Manchester. Clearly, by his profile name, he doesn't claim to be a wrestler. But don't be fooled! We had several great sessions on the mats where he more than adequately proved he has the makings of a skilled, fast and tough wrestler!! Off the mats he has a superb sense of humour and is great fun to chat with. It was a pleasure to meet and roll with him. Let's hope our paths cross again soon! 100% RECOMMENDATION!!!
Had a great meeting after alot of chatting. He definitely knows his stuff and had me locked up alot - very safe despite the difference in stats. Would meet again :)
Impromptu tussle with this "little" powerhouse today! He's put on some muscle since out last meet, and uses it to effect! Despite the considerable weight difference,this wrestler just keeps on coming back for more. Great fun to be with, on and off the mats! Roll on the next time!
After ages chatting on line we finally got to meet up at Barnet. Despite weight difference we had a great set to on the mats. Reliable, safe, sane and fun. Watch out for the choke! He might call himself "little" but he is determined and kept on coming back for more! Really enjoyed my time on mats with this wrestler. Give him a go...he's learning fast! Highly recommended!
Aug - 16
Another great session with this guy. He's well experienced and had a tad of a weight advantage so I had to work hard for anything I got so a great challenging bout again. Looking forward to another tough contest with this guy soon as well as a good laugh with him off the mats.
Jan - 16
Met this guy at a Pippas meet and glad I did. We had a great couple of grapples which pushed me a lot. He's a safe and sane wrestler who knows his stuff but allows you to have a go. Great to chat to off the mats - it even seems our paths may have crossed a long time ago! Definitely recommended.
WOW!!! We met again at a group meet in Manchester! I got my arse well and truly kicked in double quick time! This is one class act! I reckon this wrestler to be one of the top grapplers in UK. He's amazingly fast; he skill base is awesome; he's got a great physique to go with it all; and, above all, he's a REALLY nice guy!
What more is there to say?
After some chat we finally got to meet at a meet in Manchester! Wow, this is one tough guy!! Watch out for his arms, he's very strong! We hit the mats twice during the day and he was one tough, strong, determined opponent! Really good hard but safe and sane grappling. Off the mats, a really nice intelligent man with great conversation. Fun to be with. If you get the chance, wrestle this guy....you won't regret it! 100% recommended!
After years of not managing to meet up, we finally met again at a meet in Manchester. This grappler was on fine form. He delivers a tough, hard fight on the mats! He certainly had the upper hand now. Looks like I need to up my game!
Should have put up a recommendation for this fighter years back! Tough, strong, nice attitude on mats or in ring! Gives a good account of himself.
He's a great guy, safe and sane, plenty to say for himself off the mat, and determined and strong on it. Happy to tone it down for a lighter opponent such as myself, highly recommended
Had the real pleasure of locking up with this new wrestler at a Grapevine meet at Barnet. Superb physique, unafraid to step on to the mats with a wrestler way out of his weight class, this guy is one feisty, tough, strong grappler. Had two or three sessions with him, and in each he gave 100%. Dont undersetimate his strength either....he can handle himself well. I look forward to the next battle. this is a 100% Gold Star recommendation!
WHY HAVE I NEVER WRITTEN A RECOMMENDATION BEFORE??!!
I have know this great guy for years! Hes a perfect host, safe, sane, reliable and, above everything else, FUN!! He has one weakness....which I leave you to discover! More importantly, he has shouldered the running of the Grapevine meets for a long time now. Again, he is a good host, making "newbies" relaxed and encouraging them on to the mats. Events are well organised, friendly and inclusive. He is a blast on the mats, too.
Without this wrestler, the wrestling world in UK would not be the experience it is!
It was a real privilege to fight dad wrestle, someone with so much experience. We had a great 2 hour fight which I thoroghly enjoyed.
Strong, energetic and loves his wrestling, it was a great fun time.
A very friendly, amusing and intelligent guy off the mats! I look forward to meeting you again in the near future for round 2!
Had chance to wrestle this extremely able opponent again yesterday at a Grapevine meet at Barnet. WOW, I need to up my game!! Faster than ever, amazing technical skills, hes a blast to wrestle. Safe and sane, of course, but dont expect to get too many submissions! Off the mats hes a lovely guy to chat with. Hes also great to watch. Wrestle him if you get the chance!
Seldom am I tempted to write at the start of a recommendation "100% RECOMMENDED", but on this occasion its the only thing to write!! This wrestler is the tops. Good defensive wrestling style, with explosive moments when the submission hold just hits you! This guy is just one year into wrestling and I was made to look the rookie! I was totally outclassed! If you get the opportunity, meet him. Completely reliable, safe and sane with a high pain threshold. This is one wrestling star in the making!
Dadwrestle was reliable turning up as promised. He lived up to expectations applying a plethora of holds and moves, asserting his superiority against this novice. He was excellent company, I would highly recommend a meeting if the chance arises. Thank you.
After quite some time chatting, on the spur of the moment we fixed a meet! This big lad is exactly what he says he is in his profile! PLUS he is safe, fun, tough and a perfect host. We had a great heel/jobber session! He knows how to take his punishment! He looks the part in gear, and delivers on the mats. A perfect way to spend a hot, July morning! 100% recommended! Dont miss your chance of locking up with this guy.
Finally got together for a match. This is one big strong fella, who is a real gent both on and off the mats. It took us a while to meet up but it was worth the wait. We had a great tussle and also had a lot of fun. Nice guy. If you haven't already met him then do so, he's thoroughly recommended.
After years (yes, years!) of trying to fix a date and time convenient to us both, we at last met to wrestle today! DON'T underestimate this guy! He has great upper body strength, amazingly strong arms and good stamina. Added to that, he's a natural on the mats. This was a most enjoyable wrestle, and I hope the first of many. Off the mats, safe, sane, reliable professional guy....what more could you ask? 100% recommended! Round 2 SOON!!!!
Had a good time with Paul. He is strong and great fun to wrestle. Gave me tips on a few holds. Great to talk to after the match.
What a great host, on and off the mats! It took some time for us to find a mutually convenient day, but it was well worth while waiting! I agree with others....watch out for the legs! Safe, sane, fun as a wrestler! Good conversationalist after the bout, too. No hesitation...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I look forward to Round 2!
One of the few wrestlers that has ever come to my turf for a match so of course I had to meet him. He is strong 💪 bloke and we had a good roll and his sleeper hold is phenomenal. I have to apologize for the fakes that no showed on him in Texas but there are plenty of flakes and fakes there. One reason. I wrestle away
Now this is one class act jobber! He's tough and resistant and takes his punishment like a man! Imaginative on the mats, he's a born pro jobber! He turned up exactly as we arranged, and was safe and sane. He brought out the hidden pro wrestler in me! DONT MISS THIS GUY if you are ever in Houston. 100% Gold Star recommended.
Hooked up with Dadwrestle and had an awesome match. We traded a variety of holds but watch out because he is very strong. He respected all limits and I hope we get to lock up again.
Had the GREAT pleasure of locking up with this Texan Bear on a visit to Houston! Easy to fix a meet date and he was punctual too! Huge fun to wrestle...watch out for his legs...they are strong! Also he has a MEAN belly claw. Good conversation off mats an added bonus. This wrestler is not to be missed! 100% Gold Star recommended!
After chatting for many weeks, I finally agreed to wrestle this big fella after his visit to Oxford .. I must admit to feeling a little nervous about meeting this heavyweight Daddy of wrestling, with over 200 fights under his belt !! I needn't have been, he's a really lovely natured and interesting man, but with a real passion for his wrestling !! Nothing I can really say that hasn't been said before, just a strong but fair battle commenced , and I have to say this mans stamina is something to be reckoned with!!
A friend of mine who is interested in starting also joined us , and Paul was more than willing to take the time to start him off with a few basic holds !! A thoroughly enjoyable evening had by all .. Very Highly recommended.
What a guy! This beefy powerhouse hasn't been wrestling long, but he's learned FAST from the experienced guys he has met. Tough, strong and determined on the mats (he has a good set at home!) he is totally safe and sane. He looks the part in gear and delivers a hard but safe and sane bout. He uses his weight well, and I have to admit it, I struggled to get the subs!! I think we agreed an evens fights, but that was him being the gracious host! This is one of the nicest men and best hosts I have met in the wrestling community. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED gold star rating! Roll on the next time!
Met Dadwrestle a few years back and had a good wrestle with him. He's strong and skilled and a good host, safe and sane too!
We snatched the chance of an hour or so on the mats! Has this wrestler gained some great moves!? He sure has! He's been piling on the muscle too. Strong and determined, he uses his weight well and to advantage. Off the mats, a great sense of fun and humour. The time flew past and we agreed a return match asap! 5 STAR recommendation!
Not sure why I didn't post this earlier! Met this strong and keen wrestler a year or so back when he was starting out. He's great fun on the mats; good, fit tough style, wanting to learn. Totally reliable, safe and sane. I hear hes come on considerably since then! Grrrr....I am ready for the rematch! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Enjoyed a challenging mat battle with Dadwrestle yesterday. Excellent tough, skilled, experienced opponent, a great guy to wrestle. Definitely recommended.
I had read a lot about this wrestling Scotsman! He was my first grapple at a meet in Manchester. It could not have been a better start! Skilled, tough and quick on the mats, he had me tapping! Looks good in gear, too. Off the mats, a great guy to chat with. This is a 5 Star wrestler not to be missed. HIGHLY recommended!
A true gentleman - who can inflict pain on very inch of your body. Fortunately, he tailors his onslaughts to the abilities of his opponents, so whatever your weight or skill level you will have a good hard wrestle and think you have done well.
Every now and then the mask would slip and the true horror of what could befall me if I got too cocky became apparent. Respect due.
I relish the prospect of the next meeting. Thanks for a great wrestling experience.
Met up with this long standing opponent at a meet in Manchester! AS ALWAYS a hot, hard intense wrestle! This guy is ONE OF THE BEST! Wrestle him if you get the opportunity!
5 STAR rating!
GREAT wrestle last night! This guy is quick, strong, amazing stamina and tough!! Despite the weight difference the fight was even, showing off his skill in handling a bigger opponent. 100% reliable, sane and safe. Not to be missed. Here's hoping the rematch is soon!
Met up and got to grapple with Dadwrestle today at a group meet at Pippas. Really good guy who likes to grapple and to be on top. Like to think I held my own against him. Hopefully round 2 il be the dominant one
I had a great wrestling time with this British gentlement. Much more skilled, strong and agile than you could think, and a very friendly and warm host. Would repeat without hesitation. My best recomendation.
"The Big Strong Man" lives up to his name!!!! This Spanish bull is big, strong and fun to wrestle! We made straightforward arrangements to meet on his trip to London. He is clear what he wants out of a meet and rules were agreed easily. Don't be fooled by his claims to be a novice. He is a natural on the mats. Off the mats he is charming and good company. My greatest regret is that he lives in Spain, so a rematch is hard to set up lol! Otherwise a 100% gold star recommendation. Take on the big strong man if you get the chance.
Nice guy off the mats but fierce on it, this big guy knows his stuff. Very skilled and very hard to make tap out. Highly recommended.
I can only reiterate Paul's very kind words. After what seemed like an immeasurable length of time, I finally got to meet this tough wrestler who knows his holds and moves, and predicts your next one. He's not in the top ten recommendations list for nothing, he's met some very worthy opponents, and I feel honoured to be added to the ever growing list. Make no mistake Paul is strong, capable of bouncing me around the mats, but I (just) managed to hold my own for some of a long and enjoyable session. Round 2 is definitely on the cards. Those that haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting this guy, do it. I promise there'll be no regrets.
I had one of those wrestling meets today that makes the whole game worthwhile! We had been chatting for years and not been able to set up a meet. Today's meet was easily arranged. This is one first class wrestler! Not only that, off the mats hes fun to be with, with excellent conversation. On the mats he's strong (don't be fooled by his weight and tight, muscled physique!) and determined. Watch out for his arms, too! He has a powerful defense that soon turns into a well planned attack! We had a good few hours of give and take. He dishes out and takes in equal measure! There were submissions from us both. I can't wait for Round 2! Gold Star 100% recommended!
DONT MISS THIS GUY! As ever, a superb wrestle. Strong determined, not phased by wrestling heavier guys, this powerhouse if one feisty guy! He just keep on coming back for more! 100% Gold Star recommendation!
A last minute fixture proved to be one of the best meets of the year! This wrestler has a great build of the small tank variety. Awesome arms and powerful legs. He's strong and determined; not at all phased by much bigger guys....in fact enjoying it! Great stamina, we were on the mats for hours in a 3 way bout with "Bushchub". Dont be fooled by the claim "I am only a beginner". This is one hot, natural, gifted wrestler. I hope and trust that the rematch will happen soon! Off the mats there's good conversation and a great sense of fun.This is a 100% recommendation!
I had a wrestle with him in a hotel room. Big strong man, we had a good tussle and i could tell we were both enjoying it. He did try to wind me with some belly splashes but didnt, instead i enjoyed them. Very nice gentleman, really glad i met him and will meet him again soon hopefully
Belly to belly again with this BIG MAN at a small group meeting at Barnet! As ever, safe and sane, but a formidable mountain to move on the mats! Great fun!
Met this BIG guy for a brief but satisfying hotel scrap! Totally reliable safe and sane opponent! Next time we meet on the mats for the next heavyweight CLASH!
Had a great time with Paul. He is safe, strong and great fun to wrestle. If he comes your way, don't miss the chance to meet him.
This was a great, fun meet! We had chatted over the years but never managed to meet up. This is one big, strong, determined wrestler. Don't be fooled by his gentle manner....he has scissors which will have you tapping!! Powerful crushing thighs!. And that not to mention his arms! Safe, sane and totally reliable, we had a good few hours exchanging holds, I hope the return bout is SOON!!! 100% recommended!
This GREAT wrestler was one of the first men I ever wrestled!!! Weve met up over the years and he remains a perfect opponent; strong, superb physique and a REAL gentleman! He taught me me some moves I still use as finishers! This is a Gold Star 100% recommendation
Dadwrestle is a really nice guy. Very strong and a great opponent. I would wrestle him again. A true gentleman!
We had chatted for a bit, and then managed a really last minute meet! We realised we had some great past opponents in common! This wrestler looks the part in his gear and we settled to a long, sweaty Brit Pro bout. Sane, safe and fun! Roll on Round 2! Highly recommended.
I have had the pleasure of wrestling DadWrestle on several occasions and he has always made me work hard for the win. Initially we wrestled submission style but as my taste for pro developed he kindly changed his style too. He has a great knowledge of the sport of wrestling.
A gentle giant out the ring but tough nut to crack in it - if you get the opportunity give him a try you won't regret it.
Now here's a former opponent I am DELIGHTED to see back on the scene! We met in former days "up north"! Safe, sane, reliable...huge imagination in the ring! Looks great in his pro gear! Am just hoping I get the chance to face him in the ring again soon! 100% recommended! Dont miss the chance of taking this skilled pro on!
After what must have been over a year sending messages, our paths finally crossed.
I concur with what everyone has already wrote, scroll down his recommendations to get a true impression of the man. He's everything everyone has written.
I enjoyed our couple of bouts and would certainly look forward to doing it again sometime. Thanks.
We had chatted for what seemed years on line! At last I got to wrestle this big guy at a group meet at Barnet! I certainly wasn't disappointed! He might be in the early stages of his wrestling career, but he brings to the mats great determination and natural skill. We had a few good sessions on the mats during the meet, each one better than the last. Safe, sane and fun to wrestle. I am now looking forward to the rematch! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Finally met the Daddy during one of my visits in London, and luckily just before he moved out of his place. He wrestled me at my level, yet he's on top all the way through the tough sweaty yet safe and sane bout stating that he's the boss of wrestling. He did let me fight back a few times but only under his full control. Thank you for taking the time to meet me for a great match. Sure we will wrestle each other again somewhere in the future.
Great to have a chance of a "rematch" on the Barnet mats at a group session!! Good to watch this wrestler take on guys in his own weight class too. Skilled and tough, it was a pleasure to watch!
I must admit that I was perhaps a little apprehensive about the weight difference between us, but I need not have worried! This is one feisty, tough, energetic wrestler! Arrangements were made easily. He was spot on time. He stripped down and was on my mats within seconds. He just kept on coming back for more every time I put him in his place! We had a good two hour, non-stop match. He has some great technique which he uses to advantage. It was a great bout! It was the last "battle" on my mats in London; and it was a perfect way to end!! 100% recommended!
I had heard lots about this grappler, and it was my definite pleasure to face him on the mats at a group session at Barnet. GREAT physique, skilled on mats, strong, energetic and determined. Goes without saying, safe and sane. Watching him wrestling guys in his own weight range was a great way to pass an afternoon. With me, his defense was strong and he wasn't going to let me get away with anything! This is a 100% gold star recommendation! Dont miss the chance to roll with this wrestler!
Great to have a second encounter with dadwrestle at Barnet. He goes in hard but sensible and I had no qualms about locking up with him for a tough bout.
Absolute pleasure to hit the mats again at a meet in Barnet with this tall, wiry, strong wrestler! He can still punch, I am glad to say! Delight to wrestle, great sense of fun and humour too! What more can you ask for?!
I met this star wrestler at a Grapevine meet today at High Barnet. He certainly delivers on the mats! Despite a considerable weight difference he came in hard and fast. We mixed in a few gut punches too, which was good. I cannot recommend this wrestler too highly! Safe, sane, fun, imaginative, tough with great staying power. Don't miss the opportunity of facing this wrestler on the mats!!
Met Dadwrestle a few times. A heavyweight in all senses of the word. Gave me a hard time and he did not lose a round against me.
I met this skilled lightweight at a meet at Barnet. We had tangled before a group meets and it was good to wrestle him again. Obviously there is a sizeable weight difference, but he is a determined, strong defensive grappler who is great fun to take to the mats! This is a 100% recommendation...don'y miss your chance to wrestle. Off the mats he has a great sense of humour!
I met with Dadwrestle at the last Barnet meet, he's a skilled and strong wrestler who was definitely a worthy opponent. He's also a very friendly guy off the mats and I'd be happy to wrestle again and recommend him.
Well, I got my butt well and truly kicked by this wrestler! Never underestimate your opponent! Great physique, strong, very skilled, used his weight well. What more can I say? This is one skilled, fun guy to hit the mats with!! I really hope I get a chance of a rematch! Watching him take on other guys was a real pleasure too. This is one of the stars of the wrestling scene I reckon! 100% gold star recommendation!
Met this big guy at a meet in Barnet. We had two good long sessions on the mats! It was great to roll with him again! Next time he might even take the old man down...or not LOL! Great to wrestle, fun to chat with! Highly recommended!
Fighterman is new to the wrestling scene but is by NO MEANS a rookie! He's a skilled wrestler, fast, strong and fun on the mats. It was straightforward to fix a mat session with him and he was reliable, safe and sane. If you get a challenge from this guy....accept! You will have a great time on the mats!
Experienced, tough, safe, a pleasure to finally get to grips with this man! A long time coming but worth the wait. I look forward to round two!
I had long wanted to wrestle this skilled guy! I got the chance at a meet in Manchester. I certainly was not disappointed!!! He brings to the mats amazing skill and technique which was great fun to TRY to counter! He's strong and determined. He has endless stamina and just keeps on coming back for me. It was a real privilege locking up with him and I hope it might happen again. 100% recommended!!
Met up with this very experienced wrestler at a group meet. A Big Big guy but really enjoyed rolling with him. A friendly guy to talk to and definitely recommended, just watch out if he pins you was game over for me.😊
Had the pleasure of meeting up with this wrestler at a meet in Manchester! There was a big weight difference, but he gladly accepted my invitation to join me in the ring. Watch out fr his arms! Hes one strong guy! We had a good session and he is a 100% recommendation! Safe, sane, fun and up for a good wrestle!
A much delayed but much anticipated encounter with this legend. He's a big man with formidable strength. Loved every minute of our match. He's a great guy who loves his wrestling and puts u at ease from the get go. Hope we get to roll again soon big man!
Well, what to say? We have chatted over the years, and I hadn't thought that we would ever hit the mats. When we did at a meet in Manchester it was me who did the hitting of the mats!!! This is one awesome wrestler; height, weight, skill, physique! Add to that a REAL sense of fun and even though I was reduced to a crumpled heap on the mats, I came out smiling! If you get the chance, wrestle this man! You wont be disappointed at all! He's one of the best! 100% recommendation!
It was great seeing and catching up with dadwrestle again after many years at the meet. Had a good wrestle with him. I still can't make him tap in my chest scissors ;) Maybe next time ....
We had met in the dim distant past at Hendon. It was therefore a real pleasure to meet up again in Manchester at Pippa's. WOW! What to say? One awesome grappler!! Great physique matched by great wrestling skill. What more could you want?! Well, added to that you get one of the nicest guys you have ever met off the mats. It was great watching him wrestle; it was even great being gently taken limb from limb on the mats! This is one of the gold stars of the wrestling world! 100% recommended!
There is very little to add to the paeans of praise for this grappler! All the words are applicable; safe, sane, tough, skilled! Yes, I was totally outclassed on the mats, but it was a real pleasure taking on this wrestling legend! Thank you! Obviously, a 100% gold star recommendation!
I managed to meet dadwrestle at the January 2016 Grapevine Group Wrestling Day event. I've heard about him and seen his profile plenty of times, so it was great grappling with him.
He is very strong, aggressive and technical wrestler - safe and sane. He is a good, funny humored man off the mats. I would happily wrestle/meet him again. Heaps of wrestling experience, highly recommended for a tough bout.
I had heard and seen about this wrestler, but never met him before! WOW! He is a joy to watch on the mats....even better, he is a privilege to wrestle! We had a 2 submission bout at a meet at Pippa's. Needless t say, he took both subs! Dont miss out on the chance of hitting the mats with him! He is a 5 STAR opponent. I just hope I get to face him again before too long!!
Dadwrestle has quite a reputation and so was nervous at taking on the big man before meeting him. But he is such a charming man, who could resist? Enjoyed a good fight with this skilled, tough but safe wrestler. Looking forward to next time.
I met this wrestler for the first time at a meet at Pippa's.... I hope it wont be the last! We battled for quite some time in the ring. He has boundless energy and keeps on coming back for more and more. Safe, sane and intelligent, hes fun on and off the mats. Dont miss out on the chance of locking up with him. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This guy is damn strong and made me work really really hard for any subs I got.
His height makes him hard to throw to the mats and while standing his reach can keep you at bay for ages. When you get in close contact you know you are wrestling a very strong technical wrestler.
Once you are on the ground he moves really well for a big guy.
No hesitation in recommending him to any body, and I already want a rematch to take some revenge for the aches and pains I currently have.
Met up again at a group meet at Pippa's. We didn't get long enough on the mats. This remains one of the best heavyweights in the business. A pleasure to wrestle!
This match up has been a long time in coming, but hell was it worth waiting for! Here is one tough, strong, skilled, sane submission wrestler!!He's a tank of a guy, with all the same attributes! We wrestled a good two hours, with almost even honours. Good clean wrestling. Off the mats, he's intelligent and a good conversationalist. This is a gold star 100% recommendation. Roll on the rematch!
Now here is a guy who needs to change his profile name!! We met at a meet at Pippa's. Despite the weight difference we had two long sessions on the mats. He's fast, feisty, strong and determined! He was a real pleasure to wrestle, relentless in his defense and attack. Skilled and keen, this is one exceptional lightweight! Roll on the next time! 100% RECOMMENDED!
As Paul says, we spent a few hours together on mats made available by someone we both know, we were grateful for that kindness. Not quite all the time we spent together was wrestling but we certainly had some fun one way and another. Paul is stronger and heavier than me as well as more experienced at wrestling so naturally he won nearly all the submissions, I did get a couple from him with armlocks but he was probably giving me chances to make that possible. Paul did take care to wrestle safely and release me promptly when I tapped which is so important. Also he managed the arrangements to meet up efficiently so I can definitely recommend.
After a very brief meeting some time back at a Barnet meet, we fixed to meet on the mats of a mate in Exeter. We had a long, good give and take session, to take account of the weight difference. This wrestler is much stronger than his weight might suggest, so beware! This is a tough, determined wrestler! We had a good few hours on the mats and raised a good sweat. Totally reliable, safe and sane. This guy gets a 100% thumbs up as an opponent!
Great to see this experienced Brit Pro grappler settled in his new home! We met up for a good, hard session on his mats. He's as ever....perfect experience on the mats; welcoming host; tougher than he makes out!! Will be heading out to take him on again SOON!!!
Locked up again with this great guy this week! Hot pro session on his mats! He's a perfect host, sane, safe and tough.A skilled, imaginative wrestler. We are to meet again soon, I hope!
I met Dadwrestle on short notice in London – and am very glad I did. He's big and tough, respectful of limits, and knows his moves very well. I had to work to get any kind of submission, and he made me submit over and over. Nothing more a littler guy could ask for! Highly recommend, so meet him if you can.
At the very last minute we were able to fix a meet, and I certainly had no regrets! Although there was a considerable weight difference, we had a great to/fro bout, exchanging holds. Don't be fooled by his size; this is one strong, feisty lightweight!! He has a good, firm, well muscled physique, which he uses to good advantage. Off the mats he is intelligent, interested and interesting in his conversation. He also has a a fun sense of humour! What is there not to enjoy? 100% recommendation! I hope we get to meet and wrestle again!!
GREAT news that this all time star of the mats is getting back into action after his accident!! This was a rematch after quite a number of years. The meet was easy to arrange. This wrestler brings to the match amazing skill, a perfect wrestler's physique and the ability to make the encounter enjoyable for both fighters. A hot promission bout, with plenty of verbal encouragement! I can't wait to face him again! Tough, strong, he's fun on and off the mats. So, it's a 100% 5 Star recommendation! Don't miss your chance of taking on one of the finest wrestlers in UK!
What pleasure it was meeting with dadwrestle this morning... Even though the early start caught me a bit blurry eyed, we hit the mats and ensured a good drawn-out bout, filled with strength, sweat and technique. What a complete Gentleman on and off the mats, full of stamina and determination! Enjoyed the to and fro of it mixed with the passion this man has for wrestling! Look forward to a rematch soon!
What a great wrestler this guy is! After chatting about a meet, we fixed a date, and today we hit the mats! This wrestler is all he says; strong, skilled judo practitioner, eager, keen and delivers exactly that in a bout! We wrestled for well over two hours. Both took subs, but I have to admit he took many more than me! The perfect gent on and off the mats, safe, sane and reliable. It was a real pleasure to meet him and fight him. I only hope that I get the chance fairly soon of redeeming my reputation LOL! 100% recommendation. Don't miss the chance of wrestling this man!!
After a lot of trash talking and general verbal abuse, we hit my mats! Got to say, got my arse well and truly kicked by this amazing wrestler! He's a superb grappler on the mats. 100% recommended as ever!
Can't believe there isn't a recommendation from me on here! Have wrestled this little pitbull over the years and EVERY fight has been GREAT! He's tough and verbal before the meet; and he delivers 100% on the day. Reliable safe and sane, but a real handful! Got well and truly beaten this last time, but a REMATCH is promised!! This guy is a star! Don't miss out on taking him to mats.
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!
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!
Dadwrestle is a super guy....He invited me to join him and two friends to wrestle this afternoon and we had a blast. I was a bit out-classed but held my own and thoroughly enjoyed everyone there. Dadwrestle is skilled, strong, witty, smart, friendly and a really good wrestler. I was sad to see the wrestling end, even tho I was exhausted and totally satisfied. He invited me to join them and adjourn to the pub where we chatted and laughed for a couple of hours. A def highlight of this trip to London.. Including my first tag team match, which was terrific fun. I hope to repeat it many times ! And Highly Recommended !
Sometimes the very last minute fixtures prove to be one of the best! This skilled, tough wrestler joined three of us to make a tag 4th at the very last minute! Let me tell you, the pics don't tell the whole story! This is one amazing, strong, tough, muscled wrestler! Watch out for his lethal leg scissors! Off the mats there is great, informed, fascinating conversation. I can't recommend this guy too highly....it was a pleasure to meet him. 100% recommended!
Wrestled multiple times infact have lost count. I was always on the receiving end at the beginning of meeting him but the worm turned. Believe I gave him a run for his money. Awesome guy to wrestle he looks ominous but he is a big guy with a big heart. Enjoyed every time I wrestled him.
Dadwrestle has been a regular opponent for many years. A good mat based battle is always on the cards and from the moment we meet on the mats we know there's gonna be a great clash.
Always safe and sane with lots of attitude. Never had a bad time with dadwrestle!
Thought after last night's session I had better update this! This is one of the best guys around!!! Huge fun on the mats; a GREAT tactician; tough and strong; looks amazing in the gear! Easy to fix meets, totally reliable. To all that he brings good conversation off the mats over a mug of tea!! What more can you ask? This is one 100% GOLD STAR recommendation! As I said, ONE OF THE BEST!
Matt's a regular opponent! Lives up to his great pics too. He's pretty skilled, so don't underestime him. He's sane, safe and utterly reliable! Don't miss the opportunity to wrestle him!!
24/10/2014: It's pretty intimidating taking on a guy who outweighs you by 32 lbs and has had 222 past opponents just here on Meetfighters alone! And yes, all that strength and experience certainly told, with him getting multiple submissions out of me from a wide arsenal of holds and techniques. But wrestling dadwrestle was a great, if punishing, experience - he's a true gentleman, welcoming and hospitable, and plays safe and respects limits, with an excellent spacious set up for wrestling. Don't let his age fool you! You'd never guess it and the man is still in great shape, with a lot of strength. Although he prefers competitive matches dadwrestle can certainly punish jobbers. Highly recommended and this jobber will be back for more.
18/04/2015: A rematch with dadwrestle, competitive this time, at a small group meet in Hackney. As strong as ever, he had me controlled and submitting most of the time, but he seemed almost paternally proud when he found that his protégé had developed something resembling a defence and could even (very occasionally) get the odd sub himself. Dadwrestle's a lovely man, thankfully far above such base things as cheating in tag matches. Wrestle him and learn....
12/10/2015: For my swansong at dadwrestle's great home set before he's reduced to joining us plebs at the matrooms and it was as good fun a grapple as ever. I think he's quietly pleased with how I'm coming along, but that didn't stop him working me over yet again. Which is how it should be.
Another great session today! Watch out for the legs! Hes a cyclist...get caught in the head scissors and you know it! He's got some sneaky fighting back moves, too. Always a pleasure to wrestle and excellent chat off the mats. Continues to be an A1* opponent!
Dont be mislead! The so called squashlad is fast learning good aggressive tactics! Hes strong and resilient. We had several good sessions today, making me definitely want more! Whats this about rule breaking? Who? Me?!! Great guy off the mats too.
This is one first rate jobber! He can certainly take his punishment! Easy to fix a meet; safe, sane and reliable. Tough on mats, he delivers exactly what his profile says. Intelligent and good conversation off the mats, too. For a "newbie", he's a natural, I reckon....born for the mats! I had a great, fun evening...just hope he comes back for more! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Fantastic afternoon match on Dad's mats. Sweaty struggle and squash match. Chest to chest and belly to belly domination. Total gentleman and quite engaging, even when trash talking! Would love to take him on again.
Very easy indeed to make arrangements, punctual, polite....and a GREAT heavyweight! Was delighted to be able to wrestle this big American bear on my mats here in London! Hes a perfect gentleman off mats and a tough opponent on them. We had a great to/fro session, trading strength holds. Hes tall, he's heavy, he looks the part in gear! Let's hope the fates bring him back to London soon. I will be ready for the rematch!! 100% recommendation.
Had a great 2 hour multiple submission wrestling match with dad wrestle at his flat in Lindon. Good back and forth wrestling with submissions about even both ways. Dont let him get on top of you. He's a big tough skilled wrestler with a lot of moves and a devastating punch. Nice large mat room in central London. Hospitable host and a great guy on and off the mats. Can't wait for a rematch on my next trip to London. Highly recommended.
This was a match up easily arranged. What I didnt realise was that I would be facing a proper powerhouse of a wrestler. We had two solid hours of full on submission wrestling. Hes strong, tough and skilled on the mats and delivers an intense, fun and sane bout. If you agree to body punching, watch out! He's one hell of a puncher! Safe, sane and reliable. One of the best wrestlers I have met on my mats in a long time. Roll on his next visit to London!! 100% recommendation!
The return match! As tough as ever, this wrestler has lost weight, and looks good on it! Just as aggressive, just as sound a puncher!! It was an intense session with subs on both sides. This guy is a class act!
Hi I have wrestled Dad wrestler many times in the past and found him to be good wrestler and a great guy
This is one tough guy! Dont be fooled into thinking that a guy his age cant wrestle! GREAT physique, strong as hell. He loves to trade gut punches if agreed. Really enjoyed my session on mats with this wrestler. Cant wait to meet him again. 100% recommended!
Finally I met this gentleman in London. His long list of opponents reflects his love for wrestling.
He has great skills and is a very experienced fighter who can take and dish out plenty. He is fit and strong as well as reliable, punctual and easy to arrange with. Our match was a fun experience.
Off the mats he is polite, witty and a perfect host. Very highly recommended!
Having missed him last year, I was delighted when this legend of the mats wanted to meet and wrestle this year. What a class act! This guy is one 101% recommendation!! Tall, strong, great "wrestler" look and skilled, hes a tough challenge on the mats but still a joy to wrestle! He brings an intensity to the bout which is irresistible! I was totally outclassed but loved every moment of our meet.
Off the mats, there is great interesting, informed conversation and humour.
It was a privilege to wrestle and I hope to get the chance of a rematch.
There isnt a recommendation high enough for this wrestler!
Round 2 with paul was no easier than the last one, keen as ever he gave me a great workout and still had more pearls of wisdom to share! And this guy had a session the night before which begs the question - where does he get this energy from?????
I can pluck theories out of the air but instead i insist anyone who has not tried him had better have a go and see for themselves hehe
Dunno what i can say that has not been said already! Paul is a brilliant man, great host and one wicked wrestler, i dunno where he gets his energy from!!!!!
Outclassed me in every way, he really does know how to use his weight and strength for maximum advantage, and can be very punishing if you let your guard slip for a second, but very well controlled and safe as well. He was more than willing to share constructive feedback on how i was doing, and showed me how i can do some things better.
He has a great attitude on and off the matts, and interesting in conversation as well as wrestling, very recomendable to any who have not had the privilege of wrestling him
Round 2! Despite the short time between our meets and having wrestled Dave King (!!!), this guy had picked up some good tricks along the road! We had a good 3 hours on the mats battling it out. Second meet better than the first, if that can be believed. This is one tough strong fun wrestler!!
Well, this guy might call himself a rookie, but he's a born wrestler! Easy to fix a time with, reliable and friendly. Once on the mats, he goes for it!! Amazingly strong upper body, especially his arms. He's a natural on the mats, quick to learn, and quick to apply what he learns. Great stamina, he keeps on coming back for more. This was one HIGHLY enjoyable encounter! Good intense, tough submission wrestling, safe and sane. I can't wait for Round 2! 100% recommendation!!!
After a lay off following an injury (his) we met up at a small meet. THIS IS ONE IMPROVED WRESTLER! Faster, more determined than ever, with a rapidly increasing skill base, this is on hot wrestler! I REALLY enjoy his attitude and style on the mats! DONT MISS OUT IF HE CHALLENGES YOU!
Dadwrestle is an amazing guy. He's strong and has tons of ability. He's more than a match for any wrestler. But he's also patient and can lower the pace to your standard. A real treat for any wrestler of any level.
This powerhouse looks great in his trunks. He's a perfect host. Friendly, safe and definitely sane.
There's a reason he has so many recommendation and that's because you're mad not to meet him if you have the opportunity. Really can't recommend him high enough.
Thanks for a great evening and look forward to doing it again soon.
It had been a long time since we last locked up! This is one impressive heavyweight!! Watch out for his arms....like steel, and he can use them efficiently! Great evening spent on the mats. This wrestler is reliable, safe, sane....and huge fun on the mats! He knows his stuff, and is a real challenge. Can't wait for our next session. 100% GOLD STAR recommendation! if this guy challenges you, ACCEPT! You wold be mad not to.
Don't judge this man by his age, he has great skills and fitness/strength & stamina you'd expect in a fit man 20 years younger. A formidable fighter on the mats and an intelligent, witty gentleman off them. Highly recommended.
Not sure why this has not been written before! this is one tough wrestler1 hes strong, skilled and tough on mats. Just sort of opponent I like....keeps on coming back for more. Hes easy to fix dates/times with and 100% reliable. great guy off mats too....can hold a good, interesting conversation. If it wasn't for distance we would be regular fight buddies! Gold star recommendation!
I rarely grapple with guys who are so much bigger than me knowing there will be a total mismatch. However, the rules were agreed in advance and it turned out to be a really fun experience. Off the mats he is great company and a really interesting guy to talk to. He certainly has my recommendation!
We have chatted for years but finally got to meet today! This experienced wrestler certainly lives up to his profile name!! Great lean ripped body, he is strong and tough on the mats. We agreed the rules in advance owing to the weight difference. He delivered exactly what he promised in a bout. After the match he proved to be an entertaining and fun conversationalist. All round a perfect experience. This wrestler get a 100% recommendation. He is one of the London wrestling scene's best!
Are blushes discernible online? Sweet recommendation from a guy who combines those two great qualities for my money : perfect gent in usual circumstances and a genial thug on the mats. I had been a bit anxious as he had a good weight advantage and when you are pinned by this colossus you certainly are pinned. But he (mostly) didn't over-do his advantage and we were able to roll and get a workout. It can be very satisfying making a big guy tap and I had to work hard for every submission. Great mat set-up in central London and he even chased after me to return a watch I left in the changing room he had kindly set out for me. Tough, aggressive wrestler who can dish it out and take it. Highly recommended.
Now this was the perfect response to a "Match Request"! I had long wanted to face this experienced wrestler on the mats. He posted a request and it worked!! Safe, sane, reliable.....all those things; but a skilled, tough wrestler in reality. Rules agreed before hand. Despite my distinct weight advantage, I had to work really hard. The best sort of bout!! Off the mats, this wrestler is charming, intelligent, with a good gift for conversation. This is a Gold Star 100% recommendation! I hope I get another crack at him some day!
I dont suppose this guy needs any more recommendations. The only reason i am doing it is to reinforce all the other positive comments made about him.
He is very easy to make arrangements with-others please note-you know who you are. He is reliable, punctual and polite and has a great sense of humour.
On the mats he is a controlled, safe and sane opponent, who sometimes gives you a chance before he finishes you off, which he did with me. Believe me you wont have any problems if you have a meet with this guy.
Mark very kindly invited me to wrestling meet in the East End. We got to wrestle twice. Hes safe, sane and reliable. A great host too. Hes strong and determined on the mats. Despite the weight difference, we had a great give/take "set to"! Highly recommended. If you get an invitation to one of his meets, make sure you turn up. It's well worth it.
It was great to grapple this vastly experienced , larger wrestler of London. He was keen and had some weight advantage though no past formal training.He riled me partly as a strategy to get a another future match , we both strained and did well. I had him on his back or front more than he might like to think, a good workout , great to meet up again , well recommended , especially if you have submission or wrestling experience.
Had the great pleasure of locking up with this wrestler on his "world tour"! We had been chatting a long while and it felt like we had known each other for ages. We had a long exhausting give/take submission bout. He's tough and strong and has the distinct advantage of having done some good training at a London club in his past. Safe, sane and GREAT fun to wrestle! Don't underestimate his skill and strength. Its a great shame this guy is on the other side of the world....otherwise we would the regular fight buddies! 100% recommended!
Was a bit daunted about fighting Dadwrestle given his superior size and experience but he turned out to be a great opponent. He is fit and stong - and would be able to hold his own against wrestlers half his age. I managed to get some subs off him too which was a bonus to a tough, hard fought match. A really nice guy to have a chat with off the mats.
I had long wanted to face this wrestler on the mats! He didn't disappoint!! Great host; easy to fix date, time and location. Safe, sane and reliable. This only tells half the story. He's in great shape and is VERY strong.... watch out for his scissors. We wrestled hard for a few hours and submissions went either way. Extremely enjoyable match, which I think tested both of us. This is a wrestler not to be missed. Off the mats, good, interesting conversation. 100% gold star recommendation! Roll on Round 2!
An old friend from the past, which made the bout a double pleasure. An excellent afternoon with a very good space with mats. A good give and take session - totally safe and he adapted to the weight difference. An excellent host, and I had a great time both wrestling and catching up on things. Would not hesitate to give 100% recommendation. His long list of opponents reflect his skill and strength and his love for wrestling. I look forward to our next meet.
Well this was a real turn up for the books! I met this wrestlers years back. We have a great mutual friend in common. But we had not met since that first bout! Why, I ask!? This wrestler is strong, a great technician, totally safe and sane. What's more, he is one fun guy off the mats, intelligent, interested and humorous! We had a good give and take session, which was perfect considering the weight difference. This is one challenge not to miss. I really look forward to hitting the mats with him again SOON! 100% recommended!!
Hadn't met with Dadwrestle for a few years but once we were on the mats it was as good as always. He is strong and very agile for a big guy. Also very vey good at making it difficult to break his moves and putting yours on. Very friendly off the mats and a good sane host
After a good number of years it was great to meet up again with this feisty past opponent!! We used to meet up regularly some ten years back. We had a great give n take battle on my mats and agreed that it must not be ten years before we meet again!1
Top guy, sane and reliable. 100% recommended.
Enjoyed my time with Dadwrestle. Because of my injury earlier the week, we didn't wrestle as long as i had wanted. He is strong, experienced and is a very good host
with great mats in heart of London. Next time I wanna meet him in early part of my London trip and injury free. Totally recommended, do not miss him, if you have a chance to meet him.
I met up with this great wrestler at the end of his fairly gruelling trip to London! He had wrestled morning, noon and night for days and was injured, so we didnt get much of a match. BUT, this is one strong, determined tough wrestler! He loves the mats and brings energy, enthusiasm and power to a bout. I REALLY hope next time I get to meet him at the start!!! Totally reliable, safe and sane, this guy is a star to watch! He's only been wrestling a year...he's a natural! 100% recommended!!
Had a very enjoyable time with dadwrestle. He can be quite the beast on his excellent mats, which I suppose is ironic if you know his professional background. He's a totally reliable, pleasant, easy-going beast who makes the match fun for everyone, and he certainly knows how to use his size and strength against you if you're not paying attention. I was concerned about the size difference before meeting up, but he's controlled and cautious on the mats, putting my concerns to rest in the very first minute, so smaller guys shouldn't worry about taking him on. And as I mentioned above, he has an excellent space for wrestling with good mats – very very rare in central London!
Despite the considerable weight difference, this wrestler was content to meet me! It was easy to fix the date and time. He showed up, and I was not disappointed! His skill on the mats and his native strength made for an excellent session of give and take. He is a GREAT technician and dished out the punishment! Off the mats he is fun, a good conversationalist and great to be with. If you get a challenge or if you see hes in your neck of the woods...GO FOR IT! this is one hot wrestler!! 100% recommended! Here's to the next time!
Strong like a bull, skill like a wrestler, nice like a gentleman, fun like a comediant, and close like a friend . . .vwhat more can you expect? Only one thing he can be hard like a boss but with time i know i will . . .
What more can be said that has not already been written?! It was a real privilege (and a sound lesson in wrestling!) to meet this utterly impressive grappler! He is a real handful on the mats, built like a tank and with twice the power. He is safe and sane, wrestling to agreed levels of intensity. Off the mats he is fun and entertaining. Guys like this make the whole wrestling game worthwhile....even if I did receive the beating of my life! 5 STAR recommendation! Catch him when and where you can. You won't be disappointed!!
Met dadwrestle fit a match in London! Great skillful strong fighter! Knows how to headlock an opponent! Just enjoyed the evening and the company! Top man to fight and grab a few beers!
Had the chance to face this great strong wrestler again on his visit to London. He was in awesome shape as ever! Tough and intense on mats, but as ever, one of the best wrestling experiences out. Its a real privilege to step on to the mats with him....and I even got some taps out of him!! Roll on his next visit!!!
I certainly came up against one of the best when I stepped on to my mats with this wrestler!! Great physique, strong, and skilled, he delivered a tough but sane and safe match which was 100% enjoyable. Arrangements were made simply and easily. This guy is a must for those who are looking for a hard fought bout with an accomplished heavyweight. Pity there are not more like him in UK!! Off the mats, he is charming, intelligent and a fascinating conversationalist. All in all, one of the most challenging, expert wrestlers it has been my privilege to face! Roll on the next encounter!
As he said its been years, dad has lost none of his enthusiasm for the sport. He is a skilled strong and agile heavyweight who can hold his own against the best of them. As a person he is very funny, sociable guy who wants to wrestle everyone in the room. I was impressed by his fitness & stamina & asked him about his regime, it is unorthodox … ie. there is't one. But it certainly works (He was constantly on the mats, in fact possibly spent more time on them than anyone else present & there were some young guns at the meet)
He was first person who ever challenged me to a wrestling match & I still remember the excitement I felt that day 10 years ago when I received it.
If you don't like coming to the meets & your fed up with people wasting your time with the usual lame excuses & cancellations , or a foreign visitor with limited time, want a safe, sane, genuine submission bout with a heavyweight opponent c/w heel tendencies, give him a shout. He won't let you down.
Well this is one of the great Characters of British Wrestling, big strong skilled , a heel from central casting(But safe & sane)
He used to be called Mauler Paul which perfectly describes his wrestling style & I think he should still use that name ( its just so HIM!! LOL) When I first started out, he was one of the people who befriended & encouraged me & is one of the nicest & funniest people you can meet. He won't waste your time. you must wrestle him.
Its been YEARS since I was able to face up to this heavyweight on the mats! Chance came yesterday at a group meet in Barnet! Honours were even I reckon! BUT this guy has developed his skills since we last met up and is a real monster on the mats. Weve agreed we need another meet! SOONER THE BETTER!
No idea why I haven't done this before! Tanker is an old wrestling foe LOL! He looks great in gear and is tough in the ring or on the mats. He's thoroughly reliable,strong, safe and sane. he has lots of experience and is a fun guy to be around. WRESTLE HIM!
I have known this great, skilled wrestler for more years than either of us care to remember! It was therefore a great surprise to meet up with him again at a group meeting in Barnet yesterday! Hes as tough an opponent as ever! It was so good to get back on the mats with him again, and to watch him take on some of the younger, technical guys. This wrestler is one of the best! Safe, sane, reliable, not to be missed. 100% RECOMMENDATION!!
Had the real pleasure of meeting this young wrestler at a group meet in Barnet. We had chatted before, but this is in no way a rookie! There was a considerable weight difference between us, but this wrestler defended and attacked with ease and skill. I was only too disappointed that I only got one session with him. I REALLY look forward to facing him again soon for a longer session. Dont miss your chance of taking this guy on. He is well worth the effort!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I had the pleasure of meeting this big guy at a group meet in Barnet. We had a good three sessions on the mats. Hes a powerful defensive wrestler who it took all my strength and determination to keep under control!! Safe and sane, he was good to chat with off the mats. I just hope that I get the chance of a longer 1on1 tussle with him soon. Highly recommended!
Finally met "Dadwrestle" on his own place and we had some great matches. More aggressive than he appears outside the match, but as much as you need to enjoy a real fight with strength and pressure....but always safe. Strong enough, big guy with strong legs, very good when he attacks ( with full force), you must upgrade a little bit your defense my friend!!! It was a great pleasure meet him...and will do this again. Great hosting, Thank you my friend.
This meet up was a long time in planning, but on the day all the arrangements worked perfectly. And it was most certainly well worth the wait! This is one ACE wrestler! Fast, strong and skilled, with a muscled body to go with it. It was a delight wrestling him, I must say. Don't be fooled by the slim frame....hes dynamite on the mats. I enjoyed every moment of our match up and only hope that we can meet again SOON! This is one of the great wrestlers of the "Meetfighters" world...110% recommended!
What a great guy and what a hard hour and then some our meet was.
Think I may have met the most genuine guy here as my first opponent
An absolute gent on and off the mat.
Certainly made me work for any and every tap.
Really great evening.
Sometimes its an absolute pleasure to write a recommendation! This is one of those times. I was totally outclassed by this skilled grappler, He is EVERYTHING that his profile says! Strong, skilled, fast and furious, he lives up to his name "the beast"! But he's safe and sane, sticking to agreed rules. Built like a miniature Sherman tank, hes a hard guy to move. What subs I did get, I had to achieve by subterfuge!! Off the mats, we had a great chat, and he's a fun, fascinating opponent. Dont miss your chance of meeting this fighter, but be reay for a proper, real battle! You wont regret it. This is a gold star, 100% recommendation!
Good to see this star of the mats back around!! I have known this skilled, tough wrestler for years. Always reliable, safe and sane. Great imagination on the mats, he delivers every time we meet. He's addicted to the verbal before the meet, which is fun too. 100% recommendation!
Met Dadwrestle for first time recently. Hugely strong and fit fighter who knows exactly how to get some effective submissions. Applys a mean camel clutch and boston.
Friendly off the mat with great sense of humour. Will certainly want to meet again. Excellent mats and really handy central London location. Recommended!
This wrestler is returning to "the scene" after a time out. Its a good thing that he's back!! We had a false start with a cancellation on his part, but he came back with an apology and wanting to fix another date. This time he was early and raring to go! He strong and aggressive on the mats, but safe and sane. We had a good tussle; he left threatening a return. All I can say is "Bring it on!!" I am ready for anything you want to TRY to dish out!
Rematch today! I had forgotten just how strong this wrester is! Watch out for the choke!! Great long tough submission wrestle this morning. I can only say you would be mad to miss your chance of locking up with this guy!
Met Marcus today! Great wrestler, took on the bigger man and made me work VERY hard! Most enjoyable wrestle; good company off the mats, too. He has skill, stamina and strength...what more could you ask for? I hope the rematch is soon!
Met Paul yesterday for a wrestle. An all round great bloke, well experienced and superb instructor. I'm buzzing from our match. Muscles aching that i never knew existed. He gave sound advice and good lessons on a variety of holds, great for a newbie like me. For all novice guys dadwrestle is very much your man, he's sane paced but by no means a soft instructor. Well recommended.
Paul was my second opponent in the world of wrestling - i only wish that i came to this sport alot earlier. Loving it and up for much more.
Would like to meet up again, back after more experience under my belt for a more evenly matched game - hopefully.
Where have all these gifted rookies been hiding!? At very short notice we fixed to wrestle today. Straightforward, simple arrangements. This guy has a fine physique, is strong and agile and uses his weight well. He is a natural on the mats, learning fast. Best of all, he keeps on coming back for more! Great fun in the banter, but out to get stuck in ! This was a highly enjoyable first meet. I really hope its the first of many mat battles. This is a 100% recommendation of a wrestler who before long will be a serious challenge!
Located minutes from Victoria Station dadwrestle is a required stop for anyone serious about grappling. Primarily into submission wrestling we started battling the moment I stepped through the door. With his large wrestling room with mma mats dadwrestle brings a wealth of wrestling info and experience. Highly recommended.
Round 2: Met again this amazing wrestler! Tried some pro stuff, which his skill made work for us. But watch out when he goes for a submission! Fast, tough and has you tapping in seconds! what a guy!
Met this veritable legend at my place today! He's all that he's cracked up to be. Tall, strong VERY skilled. Easy to fix time and date despite being ocean apart. Punctual! We had a a good 3 hour session. I hope we get to tangle again before too long. 100% recommendation!
Met Paul a coulple of times. Catch-weight match of course as I'm 154lbs soaking wet, and a bit of a squash but great sweaty fun with fascinating guy.
Don't know why it took so long to meet Paul. Don't let his name and age put you off, he is a gentleman on and off the mats and he has a mean headscissors. Highly recommended.
Round 2 today, second match of the day for me so I thought I'd be too tired but Paul made me feel at home and we started wrestling straight away as I walked through the door. More scissors on me and he can squeeze!
Good, tough session tonight! This wrestler has powerful thighs so watch out for his head scissors! Hr just keeps on coming back for more! Fun on and off the mats.
We finally got to hit the mats today! Great guy!! Eager to wrestle, strong legs put to good use in scissor holds. Safe, sane and reliable. Looks good in his gear, too. Highly recommended!! Hope round 2 is not too long in coming!!
We finally meet after a near miss in October, at the end very glad to make it up, feel safe wrestler with him despite the size, it is well balance between fun and intensity also with lot of techniques exchange in between, more important safe and sane and good manner. a good start for the year 2015, hope we get to meet again.
We fixed a morning wrestle easily! Just to say...the pics do not lie! This is one muscled, strong, lighter guy. He was determined on the mats. Great technique, that got him out of some difficult moments! It was a great fun to mix with this wrestler. We promised a rematch whenever it could be arranged. He is 100% recommended. Dont miss out on taking this grappler down to the mats!
January 2015: just wanted to note, after a great rematch, that this wrestler is really muscled up these days! As strong and determined as ever, he's one of the best around. Always safe and sane, but delivers EVERY time! Off mats, a good conversationalist, fun company!
What ever you do, dont miss the opportunity of wrestling this guy! Awesome body, strong, skilled and a thoroughly reliable person.
Highly recommend, after a few years met dadwrestle again and had a hot sweaty wrestle adapting to each others level of skill. He's a great guy on and off the mats, competitive but always safe, sane and skilled. I look forward to meeting up again.
After a few years, had the pleasure of wrestling this south coast bear again today! Good solid build, just the right attitude on the mats. Fun, safe and sane with a good imagination. Highly recommended! I look forward now to seeing much more of this wrestler!
Had another great match with dadwrestle on his mats. What a great wrestler he is: big, strong and skilled. Our matches are always challenging and intense! Definitely want to meet him again for Round 3!!
I met this guy during my stay in London. Strong and skillfull wrestler always safe and sane. Nice guy both on and off the mats. Can fully recommend him! Like to wrestle him again!
No longer a rookie! Instead a muscled, strong, very skilled grappler!! We hit my mats and I discovered I was up against a wrestler with a very high pain threshold and an amoury of moves.A joy to wrestle: safe, sane, up for an intense, tough fight. I dont think I have enjoyed a submission bout so much in a long time. This is one top class, trained wrestler, ready to take the bout to whatever level you want. 100% recommendation, 5 star rating! Although I have to admit, I came out in second place, I cant wait for Round 3!!!!
I met this wrestler yesterday in London. He's totally reliable time wise, and a great guy on and off the mats. As a wrestler he's strong, tough and tenacious. Don't underestimate this "rookie"; given some more experience he will be a real challenge! I look forward to a rematch SOON!
Met Paul on the mats in London for a while. This guy is strong, technical and has good stamina. Knows his stuff and is completely safe and sane. Match was ways to arrange and has a great sense of humour. Def would meet again, well recommended.
I met this amazing wrestler a year or so back when he was visiting London! This is a top quality wrestler. Strong, skilled and tough, he delivers a great match on the mats. Safe and sane, but a serious contender! Not to be missed! 100% recommendation!!
Dadwrestle is fun, intense, playful and aggressive... we have lots of fun, mixing submission wrestling with a lot of gutpunching :) He can take some and dish out plenty - if you want a exciting, safe beating he's the DADDY!
It is REALLY GREAT NEWS that this amazing guy is well on the road to recovery! We have met in the past to wrestle. Muscled, strong, perfect wrestler's attitude, safe and reliable. We met for a good gut punching session today, and his arms and chest are looking AWESOME and he's only just back at the gym!! Here's to a full recovery! 100% recommendation! This guy is the tops!
It was great meeting up with dadwrestle. Enjoyable wrestling, he has a good set of mats. Sane, challenging and he is happy to share his knowledge. Great host.
It was a pleasure to meet up with this wrestler! Easy to fix time and date; totally reliable! On the mats he was strong and aggressive, a good hard, solid wrestle. He claims to be a novice, but he has some tricks up his sleeve! Safe sane, fun on mats; intelligent and interesting off them. Roll on round 2!
Have to report this wrestler is on CRACKING form! He took three straight submissions off me yesterday in what proved to be a hell of a fight! This guy is a first class wrestler. If you get the chance, take him on!
Yeah decent bloke who gave a good challenge & worked up good sweat! Good person & great host......Round 2 will be on the cards for wrestle for the top! Highly recommended!
After a long time chatting regularly, we managed a quick meet today on my mats....and I wasn't disappointed! Reliable, safe and sane, this wrestler is stronger than he gives himself credit for. We worked up a good sweat and decided that this would be the first encounter! Others would definitely follow. I look forward to Round 2! Highly recommended!
Meet this guy few years back guy and safe would meet again
11.10.2014 New year new match! always happy to meet this great wrestler! *** 18.10.2013 thank for the match and the great fun we had. I am sure we will meet again next year
Had the privilege of wrestling Anton yesterday! One of the best opponents I have ever faced!! Strong, quick, skilled but also fun on the mats. Good, strong body which he uses to great effect. Tough on the mats, good, interesting and fun conversation off the mats. REALLY hope I get the chance to face him again SOON! Highest recommendation!!
Wrestler impressive and very big. It has been a good match !!! I hope to meet him again !!!
I met this strong Italian today at Barnet! He might be new on the scene but he is one strong, aggressive and technical wrestler! He is safe and sane, too. He is determined on the mats and delivers a great match up. I hope I get to wrestle him again. He clearly is a natural who is learning very fast. He will be one formidable opponent!
Confirmed a meet with dadwrestle after a panicky audit on the same day. Very glad I managed to make it!
Can only parrot what others have said, very strong and technical and extremely punishing when in control. Tried my hardest and managed only two subs to his 99.
All round top bloke, wouldn't hesitate to recommend to the few people who haven't met him yet. Will certainly meet again!
Second Meet: Full 3 hours of wrestling! this guy is fast, strong, agile and a GREAT opponent! Dont miss out on a chance to meet him. You wont be disappointed!
An almost last minute arrangement. Easy to make, reliable, good communication. Despite a huge weight difference this tiger gave me a great 2 hour non-stop wrestle! He packs a punch (if agreed before!) and takes a good beating. He's tireless, too...keeps on coming back for more! He might claim to be a jobber. but on the submission mats hes no pushover! He got some sneaky subs off me. Safe, sane, tough and fun! 100% recommendation!!
Met this new guy on the wrestling scene yesterday! He was keen to meet; easy to fix a time and date; reliable. On mats he was tough and strong. watch out for his arms! This wrestler will be awesome once he has the moves under his belt! Highly recommended! Catch this rookie NOW!
I met Dadwrestle at Rochdale for a good work out. This down to earth friendly guy was a pleasure to wrestle. He is strong and skilled and certainly no pushover. I had my work cut out and we both felt like we had done a few rounds by the end of it. I have no hesitation in recommending this experienced wrestler if you want a good work out with a nice guy.
Now this guy is something else! Great body, strong, keen, safe and sane. Totally reliable, easy to set date. On the mats he is AWESOME! One of the best match ups I have ever had. He claims to be a beginner, but he is a natural on the mats. Off the mats he is fun to chat with, interesting and interested. I hope this was the first of many encounters! 100%+ recommendation, 5 STAR WRESTLER!!
Real big dad he is .
Be aware of his big , strong biceps ! Although he is very reliable ; don`t unterratte them !
No dirty tricks IF you finally have managed to control him .
He can last his strenghts and air very long, so we did on his great, big wrestling floor with lots of space .
Searching for long pleasure fights ? , contact him and you can get `all` you want ,also recommended for small like me
He will let you on top for awhile as you deserve it by being active and have good wrestling intentions .
Now don't be fooled by this guy! He might be a lightweight but he is fast, strong and tough! Easy to fix a bout with, reliable safe and sane. But also imaginative on the mats, a fiery opponent. Was a real pleasure wrestling this guy. He comes with 100% recommendation!
Good impromptu wrestle. Sweaty grapple with a good mix of styles. Enjoyed it, cheers :)
Sometimes the last minute arrangements prove to be the best encounters! We fixed a late evening meet on my mats. This wrestler showed up as arranged. He's a tough, nicely aggressive wrestler, out to win! Great body, strong and determined. Fun on and off the mats. Don't miss your chance to face this wrestler...he is no easy pushover, I tell you! Here's to Round 2! 100% recommendation.
Real old school wrestler, hard as nails...plenty of give n take but a real gent on and off the mats. Highly recommended so don't miss out!....be seeing you again soon!!
June 2014, three great choke submissions out of me!
Time to edit this! As predicted, this wrestler is fast gaining in skill and strength! He has a mean side headlock and choke! Great fun to wrestle. He's getting the subs more and more!
Make sure you fix a wrestle with this guy! Hes strong, agile and determined!! we have met on mats many times and its always been a great tussle. Reliable, safe and sane.
Finally got a bout with dadwrestle at Barnet last weekend at a Grapevine meet (well actually 2 bouts).
I thoroughly enjoyed getting squashed by this big guy.
By prior agreement he gave my nips a few hard tweeks and also a few light gut punches which was all very enjoyable....as that is an area I wish to explore.
Perfectly safe and sane at all times I know without any doubt that he must have played it easy with me in respect that I am still a novice at all of this.
I look forward to meeting him again and hopefully some time for a longer private session...!
Definitely recommend and will update after next meet up with him.
Met this lightweight at a Barnet Grapevine meet! Hes really getting into the wrestling scene big time and was even prepared to step on to the mats with me despite a big weight difference! He a plucky wrestler, who likes to punch too if agreed. Happy to recommend him, he'll turn up and fight!
Lovely guy, known him for years, is safe and sane with a light guy like me, but loves the big guys too! I would recommend him to anyone, a very genuine guy.
After what seems years, got to wrestle my old opponent Den yesterday at Grapevine. He's as tough as he ever was! Happily comes on to the mats with me, a MUCH bigger guy, and tries some sneaky tricks, often successfully!! Don't miss a chance of stepping on to the mats with this tough wrestler!
No idea why I have no written this before! This guy is one of my longest standing wrestling mates! He a fun guy, totally reliable. Dont be fooled by his weight and size. He's tough and skilled on the mats. Packs a punch too if you are into that. Proud to call him a friend.
03:05:14 Time for an up-date. My first match with Paul some 18 months ago was entirely unplanned but what a lucky day that turned out to be. Since then we have met on eight subsequent occasions (at group meets and his London home) and everyone one has been an enjoyable and challenging experience; I always come away having learnt a little bit more. Paul has a good wrestling facility and is a welcoming host but most importantly he's a very good (and highly experienced) wrestler who will give lesser opponents (like me) a break to make the match mutually enjoyable. 101% recommendation - of course.
15.12.12: I met Paul today courtesy of PETEUK who together with YELP31 (who made a valiant effort despite being indisposed) taught me a number of useful holds and escapes; I only hope I can remember them. We wrestled for over 2 hours and had a really good workout (almost every part of me aches). No one was counting but I think I got 3 submissions (he was probably trying to encourage me) using what I was taught; these were paid back tenfold! Paul is a strong, knowledgeable and an experienced wrestler who was an absolute gentleman on the mats matching himself to my level while firmly putting me in my place. He could easily have used his size to his advantage but sportingly gave me a chance and as a result we both had an enjoyable afternoon. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending DADWRESTLE; if you are lucky enough to get the chance to meet him take it - you’ll benefit from the experience.
I always enjoy the challenge of a lighter, faster guy! Britannicus is new to the wrestling world but hes no rookie!! He's strong, determined and picks up moves quickly. He keeps on coming back for more with great intensity. He's a gent on and off the mats, reliable, safe and sane. I have requested a rematch....don't miss the chance of taking him to the mats...SOON!
Finally met up with this guy tonight! Totally reliable, easy to fix date and time. He's one strong, tough guy!! claims to be a beginner, but is a natural. Great wrestler physique, fast a furious on the mats. We had a tough, hard fought match up. Watch out for this wrestler...he's well worth meeting and is a real challenge. 100% recommendation!
April 14 My third visit to the kindly gentleman near Victoria who I fondly remembered serving cucumber sandwiches and earl grey after a gentle sporting contest on my previous visit. Wake Up! Bastard beat me up again ! He denies i am a beginner but as his first wrestle was with Noah i think I will always be a beginner compared to him (I feel that comment may induce a sulk but am I sorry?). But it was as before a great wrestle and for those of you looking for a challenge and the chance to learn do accept a challenge and if you are scottish - its also free but you need to take your own sandwiches ha ha.
Met dadwrestle for the second time tonight. Having a bit of a sore back i nearly cancelled but having discussed my ailment dw agreed he would take it easy and so he did - easy on my back, just worked over my neck and arms, he seems to particularly like one of my arms and i take it as a compliment that he likes to look at as he nearly breaks it ha ha. Musn't make him sound cruel because he is a lovely guy and I did get the odd moments revenge, he was also careful with my back and despite his flagrant disregard for the rules of a fair fight he is a gent if a very naughty one. He is also a fine wrestler and good company so if he asks you, do give him a go, you will be glad you did.
If you read one thing on my pages of waffle otherwise known as my profile please please read and believe that you must not be put off by the age of dadwrestle. I have friends my age who look older but more importantly his years have been spent learning how to wrestle so if you are serious about having a good wrestle and learning something about wrestling then jump at the chance of meeting this man.
Met at his place this morning and not only was he charming, good company and kind of dishy (oops shallow slip) he also illustrated what someone who knows what they are doing, can do and was good enough to give me tips on how I could apply holds better I was struggling to get on him, now if that's not generous i don't know what is. So ignore the age, gain from his experience and bask in his warmth. Oh dear, gone all poetic, how about - highly recommended you will have great fun and learn loads - simples.
Don't be fooled by the innocent approach! Strong, determined wrestler here. Over the year or so he's been wrestling he has picked up LOTS of technique, especially strong defense. We had a good hard wrestle, and he got some ace submissions off me...
Well, he used to call himself "only a beginner"! He can't use that excuse any more! Our second meet showed that this wrestler is fast gaining in technique and is using his powerful arms to good use. His defense is good and he regularly turned my attack to his advantage. As ever, good fun off the mats, with fun chat and conversation.
Don't bother with all the claptrap on the profile about weight! This is one tall, well built, strong guy who wants to wrestle! He has amazing upper body strength....great arms, too. And don't fall for the "I'm only a beginner" line!! He may be a rookie time wise, but he is picking up skill by the minute. Reliable, fun, safe and sane! We had a long, tough wrestle and the rematch is promised. Good sense of humour off the mats, too. SO...make sure you challenge this wrestler soon!
Just joined the long line of past opponents of this skilled and experienced wrestler. It's taken quite some time to finally meet on the mats (he is also a great host) but it was worth it. Had a very challenging but very enjoyable submission match. There's nothing about this guy not to recommend... except perhaps his sneaky resumption of the match when you think you're getting up to set up the next bout... haha
After a long time chatting, we at last met today! He might have been lighter than me, but this wrestler is strong, determined and much more skilled than he admits! Totally reliable, safe and sane, BUT a great opponent!! I really enjoyed our match up. Here's hoping we lock up again SOON!
My high respect for this highly experienced wrestler before our meeting was more than justified. He is a quick, skilled, clever and strong opponent - and very difficult to control on the mat. I highly recommended him to all those that are looking for a perfect challenge - you will get the powerful package with him. It will be a great pleasure and honour for me to meet this rough'n'tough fighting gentleman and perfect host soon again.
I had the great pleasure of hosting a short but intense session with this awesome wrestler! Bullneck lives up to his name...one bull of a wrestler! He is very strong, fast and very skilled on the mats. He looks great in his gear and 100% delivers on the mats. Off the mats he is a highly intelligent, interesting and fun person!! I just hope that some day we manage to get longer on the mats together! I have no hesitation at all in recommending this wrestler! He packs a punch, too, if you want to box!
Met dadwrestle today, really nice friendly guy.
He's strong, more agile than he looks and a great wrestler who had a good counter defence for most of my moves and holds. Looking forward to wrestling with him again.
This wrestler is not to be missed! Good physique, totally reliable, sane and safe on mats, but tough, skilled wrestler with great stamina. I am looking forward to stepping on to mats with him again....soon!
After a long break and some missed opportunities we hit the mats again today! this is one little muscled tank of a wrestler! Strong, determined with lots of stamina. We had a good few hours sweating it out with submissions on both sides! Highly recommended!
Good guy, fun, hard, ruthless and a sizeable guy - yeah - I'll take him down again
After a long wait, met this great wrestler today! He's strong, fit, skilled and imaginative on the mats!! We had a good, long, intense battle. Sane and safe, but tough and a perfect attitude!! Dont miss your chance of taking this tiger to the mats!
A very accommodating host and a tough opponent, not to be underestimated.
What can I say? Again, the pics do not lie! This guy is built to wrestle; huge arms and shoulders, and power behind them. In a very busy schedule, he made time to stop off for a mat session before heading north. Sane, safe, reliable, good conversation off the mats. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! A great opponent!
Literally what can you say about Dadwrestle, which hasn't already been said. His a totally Gent, until you're on the mats and heed this warning DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HIM ! at your peril if you do. Totally safe & sane guy, who has forgotten more about wrestling then I'll ever know, a true expert. Great fun on and off the mats and can't wait for round 2 !
Had pleasure of taking this big lad down again! He's big and he's mean, but the "dad" still took him down!
Now, here's a strong guy! Dont let him tempt you into a finger-interlock...there's huge power in his shoulders and arms. Reliable, safe and sane. Yes, he's a novice wrestler, but he's up for a good tough encounter and is certainly no pushover. If you get the chance, take him to the mats. Roll on the rematch!
I had the privilege of wrestling this guy today!! The pictures do not lie. He had a powerful muscled frame and looks the perfect grappler. We had a great three way bout, plenty of hard, sweaty action. Sane, safe and reliable; a challenge on the mats; an interesting and sparky conversationalist off the mats. I could not have asked for a better way to spend an afternoon! Highly recommended actually sounds too tame!
It was my first time wrestling someone and Paul was ever so kind to take me on.
I was no match for his strength and skill. I'm so sure he went easy on me. He even took the time to share a few moves.
It was a good session, I enjoyed it so much I didn't realize we were wrestling for a few hours.
To sum it up, all I'll say is thank you Paul for being so kind and patient, look forward to round 2'
I am delighted to be able to write this wrestler's first recommendation! It took a time to fix a date, but he was totally reliable. Don't be fooled by his size. He is a tiger! He is determined on the mats, a natural wrestler. He's in good shape, strong, with stamina for a long, hard fight! We wrestled submission, and despite the weight and height difference he claimed some crafty subs! A most enjoyable, fun encounter. Roll on the next meet!
WOW! Every now and again you meet a REAL challenge! This guy is one such fighter! Arms and shoulders like a Sherman tank! He's strong, fast when he wants to be and skilled. This guy is straight but wants to wrestle! We fought hard for an hour or two and I was well and truly taught a lesson! Round 2 promised soon! this guy is not to be missed by those looking for a good, safe but competitive heavyweight challenge1 A delight to meet1
I couldn't have asked for a more gracious opponent for my very first match. He really went out of his was to ease my nerves and talked me through some of the basics, complimenting and correcting as necessary. I really enjoyed it and am very grateful for the help in taking the first step. He's a really nice guy, safe and sane, rookies be unafraid.
I met Will tonight! He's starting out on this game. He was strong and determined, and looked great in his gear. He got stuck in on the mats straight away, and was a quick learner. Safe, sane and reliable. Fun on and off the mats! Don't miss out on the opportunity of wrestling this rookie....he's good! Round 2 soon I hope!
When I arrived at Dadwrestle’s place, he was already fully kitted up and could hardly wait to have me on the mat. So it was the quickest start I ever had for a match. It was great fun to wrestle with this big and experienced guy and we both had our moments of dominating and submitting. Which was good and fun. Unfortunately this guy uses dirty tactics sometimes to get out of holds which is really a pity… NOT :-) No I adapted to his dirty tactic wrestle style which was fun and I was happy to learn a couple of new things from him. Interesting guy, great host and a very enthousiastic wrestler ! 100 % recommendation !
WOW! One thing this man cannot claim to be is a novice, even though he has been wrestling a short time!! We has a fast, furious and fun time on the mats. He is very strong, with a hard muscled body that he uses to great effect. Here is an opponent who truly loves wrestling, is committed to the sport and wants to carry on learning. Safe, sane, totally reliable. On the mats he's a tiger; off them he is an intelligent fun, interesting guy, with great conversation. It was a delight meeting and wrestling him. 100% recommended!!
Now here is a wrestler!! It has taken a long while to fix a meet, but it was well worth waiting for! Here is a skilled, trained wrestler, strong, agile and built. He insures that his opponent enjoys the bout, while stretching him to his limits. I got just a few subs off him, but you can guess who came out on top! This wrestler is a MUST for those looking for a tough, big solid opponent. Can't wait for the rematch!! Good company off the mats, too.
This guy is a good hard wrestler, nice guy off the mats and mean tough guy on them, really enjoyed our meets and would take any opportunity to meet him again, well worth the experience
Round 2, Nov 27 2013– Was intended to be a hard wrestle between the big man and the big fella, but due to a non-wrestling injury we were unable to have the wrestle we both wanted. And as I didn't want Dadwrestle to have a wasted journey, we had a light roll around, which still turned into a big struggle.
Round 3 for the decider bout, this time its in the ring, all out war.---
well what can i say about this bout. Last minute but well worth it, told me he would be in charge but like the big man says, this story isnt over,,,,,not for a long shot paul ha ha
see u next time
Round 2:sadly we couldn't fight with the intensity we wanted as this guy had a nasty injury to his leg from a work related incident. That said, it was a tough, hard battle! So the "decider" will come later! But we KNOW who will win!!
Met this wrestler today in a last minute arrangement. After a lot of chat on line, he delivered on the mats! Hes keen, keeps on coming back for more, and was safe and sane to grapple! I suspect the story isnt over!!!
Met Dadwrestle for a hard sweaty match. With the weight difference I was the under dog but put up a hard fight. He is a kind individual off the mats but a raging bull on them. He definitely does not like his opponent getting the better of him and gets very defensive. That said it was a good match. I recommend him if in London. Will meet up next time I'm visiting.
After some time trying to be in in the same place at the same time, we made it work! We had a good, energetic wrestle on my mats. This wrestler is strong and keen, and gathering experience quickly. Fun on and off the mats!! Reliable and sane! It was a sweaty, intense match up which I hope will be repeated SOON!!
Met Dadwrestle while passing through London and he keeps to his word and on time. Had a full on NHB wrestle with the guy but totally respect limits and safe. He can take everything you can throw at him and he’s very aggressive on the mats but still in a safe way. Be careful if he gets on top of ya as he knows how to handle his weight well.. and can punch him and bruise him up but the guy still keeps comin’ at ya and he just won’t back down. If you want a wrestle or a full on rough NHB wrestle with limits respected, he’s the guy to tangle with. Have to make sure I have a rematch soon!
Not sure why I haven't written this recommendation before! Here's a big, solid, tough opponent who just loves to grapple. We have had some close fought sessions on the mats. Don't miss out on this guy, he's safe, sane and great fun. Good imagination too!
If you were in London and failed to wrestle this man, you have no idea what you have missed.
The name, "dadwrestle" says it all: he is a dad type who genuinely likes to wrestle. (Can it get any better ?!...) His enthusiasm on the mats is overwhelming, with aggression to match it !!! Indeed, he is aggressive, but in an immensely pleasant and exciting way. He is NOT disrespectful by any means. The fact that he never backs up from challenges, and gets quite creative when he wrestles, is a part of the fun game. Furthermore, there is a lot more to him than just wrestling. He is a true classy English Gentleman, with playful and intelligent wit, which tremendously enhances not only the wrestling encounter, but also the whole experience of meeting him and getting to know him. If you were lucky enough to experience and appreciate this side of his character, you might understand why he is this popular, as evident from all the raving reviews he has received. Must I be redundant and emphasize that regardless your skill level, age, and size, you should not miss the opportunity to meet "dadwrestle" on the mats (and perhaps off the mats), by any means !!!
I first noticed this guy's pics! Then we got chatting. Then a trip to UK was planned, and it all rolled out from there. But the pics only told half the story! Here is a pocket tank of a wrestler, well built, solid, muscled. He's skilled, fast and determined on the mats, eager to teach and coach and share his expertise. He is 100% reliable, safe and sane. Off the mats he is sociable and full of knowledge. He has wide interests, and loves to chat and get to know his opponent.
Watch out, this is one HOT wrestler! Accept his challenge when it comes!
I was a bit apprehensive due to the size difference. But I needn't have worried. Paul is a fun wrestle, and knows how to pace it at your level. A formidable opponent, and a great guy too.
I always enjoy wrestling Paul as he is strong and determined and good fun off the mat. Great at group meets as he makes sure everyone gets on the mat and has a good time. See you soon.
For Jobbers looking for a WOS style heel this is your man. Safe sane and reliable.
Dadwrestle is an excellent wrestler - a beast on the mats but a gentleman off mats. Don't think he was expecting my armbar which made him
Submission even sweeter. Highly recommended.
We wrestled for the first time yesterday after a long time chatting. I was not disappointed! Strong, determined with a great attitude on the mats. He claims he hasn't wrestled much, but he has some good moves in his arsenal!! Reliable, safe and sane. I hope and trust that this was the first of a series of match ups!
18 July 13. Met Paul at his place tonight and wasn't sure what to expect. Well i was pleasantly surprised, not only is he a great wrestler and tough but he made me work hard for every sub. Now for those guys that don't want to wrestle older guys then your missing out. If i can still wrestle like Paul at when I am 61 then i will be a happy man. Was a great evening both wrestling and chatting. Nice one Paul, thank you
Its quite hard to find the superlatives to use to describe this wrestler! We have waited quite some time before we have been able to fix a meet. Mark was reliable, safe and sane. But that's only the start. He is skilled, strong and great fun to wrestle. He adjusts to your level to make the bout enjoyable for both. He looks great in gear, and the pics do not lie! he has a hard, muscled wrestlers physique. All in all one of the best encounters I have ever had!! Thank you! Good conversation, too, after the bout.
Met dadwrestle yesterday after what seemed to be forever chatting, and I am glad to say the trip over was well worth it, he is an awesome guy, who certainly knew his stuff. He is totally safe and sane and respects limits. As dadwrestle has already mentioned is was a sweat soaked afternoon and I was totally puffed out, but it was a totally great experience and I cannot recommend him highly enough! Lookingt forward to our next match!
Had a great bout with dadwrestle, was a bit wary given stat difference but had an awesome first match of the day, this guy is big, strong and lethal when he gets you on the ground, managed to hold my own and were surprisingly evenly matched with subs both ways. A sound guy off the mats, total gentleman, but a beast on them.....Deffo gonna take you up on the invite down for round two mate.....cheers :-)
Every now and again you meet a new wrestler who is a rare treat to fight...THIS GUY IS ONE OF THOSE! Fast, strong, determined on the mats, watch out for his killer leg scissors. Off the mats, a fun person to chat with, on the mats one hell of a wrestler! I look forward to facing him again SOON!
Great wrestle with some nice body punches and bearhugs, respectful of limits hope to wrestle him again.
No idea why I haven't written a recommendation for this wrestler before! We fought regularly when I lived in the north. He's a strong, reliable tough opponent! Wrestles with intensity which is very exciting!! Great guy on and off the mats. Cant wait to lock up again!!
This guy is hot, very strong, and a great personality. look forward to getting him to submit and take orders from me
This guy may be new to the wrestling scene but he is strong and determined! He's out to learn fast!! He's totally reliable, safe and sane, good fun on and off the mats. Watch out for the legs...powerful! challenge this wrestler and you wont be disappointed.
A great guy off the mats, and a demon on them!! Safe and sane and nice and competitive - and he knows his stuff! A strong guy who looks good in trunks - I did manage to get a couple of subs though...!! A perfect host too. I look forward to the next time...!!
Had a great session with this guy today! Handsome man, looks good in his gear.Strong, reliable, safe n sane! We realised we had met a few years back. He is fun on and off the mats. Don't miss your chance to meet him. You won't be disappointed.
I have wrestled with dadwrestle a number of times and all of them have been good fun with technical skills and ability used rather than his sheer size. He respects limits and adapts so that even small guys like can have good have fun without the risk of injury. I look forward to another session with him soon.
REALLY HAPPY TO MEET HIM ANOTHER TIMES AFTER 2 YEARS. HE IS REALLY STRONG VERY IMPOSSIBLE TO BEAT I ENJOY MY TIME AND HOPE TO REPEAT SOON THE MATCH ON THE MATS.
After many years of chatting we hit the mats (again) last night! It was a privilege to wrestle this guy! He has a great physique, is skilled, fast, strong safe and sane. It was a tough encounter which I really enjoed. I look forward to the next time. hoping that it isnt so long a wait! Accept the challenge if offered!
Outstanding wrestler, solid, strong, easy going. We just went right to it and had a blast. Matches like this are why I keep coming back for more.
After years of chatting, since Paul comes from the other side of The Pond, we finally met at Wrestlefest NYC and had a blast wrestling a hot slow pace submission match. Paul is worth the effort to meet him as he is a great man to have FUN. Yes I will be looking forward to the REMATCH!
Met this lovely big guy a few years back - a total mismatch but it worked well - my 'tuff and determined little guy with a chip on his shoulder' attitude seemed to do the trick. Our joint-enthusiasm for wrestling and aggression made it a hot meet! Looking forward to a rematch!
Great to be able to wrestle these guys at a Grapevine meet. Dadwrestle was always going to be a tough opponent, but he gave me a good workout. Friendly and safe, and would feel comfortable in another match.
Had been chatting for a long time about a meet, and at last we have made it! Good heel v jobber tussle!! Watch out for his strong legs, guys! We got up a good sweat, and this definitely was Round 1 of many more! Totally reliable time wise, good company on and off the mats.
Paul is a great guy thanks to his encouragement I finally stepped into the a ring for the first time ever! Met him at the Jan '13 Grapevine event we had two matches and they were both great.Looking forward to another one!
If you just happen to be in the north of England make sure you take this guy on! He's quiet off the mats but tough, strong and determined on them. He took my by surprise just how resistant he was in a hold. Great body which he uses to effect! I trust that we shall face each other again SOON !!
dadwrestler was all I had hoped for and more. An excellent, tough heel, yet versatile, imaginative and attuned to his opponent's strength, size and wrestling skills. A rematch in the new year is a given.
After some nervousness on his part about weight difference, I met this great guy to wrestle. He is fast and strong, good fun on the mats. He is reliable safe and sane. By no means a rookie or a jobber!! Excellent company off the mats too. Intelligent, bright and personable. I hope we will fight again soon! Highly recommended!
During a recent holiday, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Dadwrestle in London. This man is tops. He has a great mat space, is very hospitable, and is a great wrestler with remarkable strength to boot. Seek him out if you are travelling to London, you won't be disappointed.
Another great lighter opponent! "Animal" lives up to his name! Strong, great muscled body, keen and intense on the mats. But he's safe and sane, wrestling to agreed rules. Turned up on time, good company off mats. This wrestler is highly recommended! Rematch planned.
Met dadwrestle and had an absolute blast on his mats.
Time always seems to fly by when your having a good meet.
Was a bit of a weight advantage, but he used his techniques and skill to make this one of my best matches to date.
Very skillfull wrestler and made me feel very welcome as soon as I arrived.
Managed quite a few moves on him and was a great give n take match for part of it.
Safe and sane, top guy both on and off the mats and another meet is definately on the cards.
Challenge him and meet him.
You will not be disappointed.
Here's another GREAT discovery in the lighter guys! Had one hell of a mat session with this wrestler on my mats. He's keen, fast and furious. Just what you need in a perfect bout! Fun on and off the mats. Reliable and sane. We are going to face up again SOON I hope. Don't miss your chance of taking this Essex boy to the mats....you won't be disappointed!!
dadwrestle is a complete nice guy strong skillfull who uses his tecnique rather than his wieght and was a pleasure too wrestle
Now this might have been a catchweight competitive wrestle, but it proved one of the best grapples I have ever had!! Here's a completely reliable guy, who turns up on time. He's VERY skilled on mats, as fast as lightning, and a first class opponent. hes strong, with good stamina, and is fun on and off the mats. Don't be fooled by his size...this is one awesome wrestler! I look forwrd to many more sessions on the mats!
Had a great wrestle with dadwrestle really nice guy, very strong and fit. It was a pleasure to meet him and I do hope we meet again.
Met this great guy today for the first time! I was not disappointed! He looks great in gear, tough, strong and fit and up for a good hard wrestle. He claims to be a novice, but dont be fooled, he's a natural. There really has to be a rematch...SOON!
Had the wonderful pleasure of locking up with this beefy, strong, powerful English bloke for a great wrestling match at the north end of London. He has a massive beefy belly and loves trading rough gut punches. He is very skilled and tough on the mat too. He took care of booking a private wrestling studio with mats which had a shower room. Don't get fooled by his gentleman demeanor, he's a rough n tough grappler who will test your skills. Look forward to more matches in the future buddy!
Had the chance to lock up with this guy while he was in London. He may be short, but he's a pocket tank!! Great solid build, well muscled and strong. He's a skilled wrestler and takes some handling on the ground. He uses his weight well. Perfect opponent, considerate and fun. Be warned, he packs a punch if you agree to gut punching! I can't wait for the return bout!
Met paul on two previous occasions when i was just a rookie he took me down a peg or two with his strength and skill both very enjoyable matches. Fast forward 2 years to aug 2012 for a rematch at barnet and had a battle and half. Hard intense wrestle with plenty of subs on both sides paul is a gentleman skilled and strong .great fella on and off the mats
Here's a tough star to take on! Safe, sane, eager to wrestle. He has great stamina, and don't underestimate him....rookie he may be , but the Pitbull is learning fast!! REMATCH August 2012! WOW the tiger has emerged! Great wrestling session, tough and intense. Good submissions on both sides. A perfect bout!
great fun wrestling this bigger guy, makes you think harder on tacticle moves!...really friendly guy great to talk to, and have a fun day with on or off the mats.. ;-))))
Well if u thought this guy was too old or big - forget it lol
He's strong experienced knows his holds and is a very decent challenge. Hard aggressive, fun and always safe. Will I wrestle him again? U bet and u should too. Great banter too
The rematch has happened! This guy is greatly improved skill wise and is now one of the toughest guys around I reckon. Have to admit, I got well and truly beaten!!
Now here's a wrestler with a great build, strong, skilled and a challenging opponent! Had heard lots about him before we met, and he lived up to and surpassed all expectations. Thoroughly reliable, fun on and off mats, safe and sane, but a tough, determined wrestler. One of the best fights I've had for a long time!! Roll on the rematch!
paul is a good,strong wrestler.very entertainig,on the mats,and in the chat rooms. He's safe ,reliable, he's a pleasure to meet.he's become a wise old friend. HIGHLY RECOMEND
Wrestled against Paul today and had a hot sweaty bout. Strong and technical, he inflicted pain on me (safe and sane of course). He was reliable and genuine and needless to add, great sense of humour. I totally recommend him. Great match!
I wrestled this guy last weekend, and what a great fight we had. He is strong, trim, and determined! He has great stamina, and keeps on coming back. Great fun on and off the mats, totally reliable, safe and sane. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Roll on the rematch!
I've had the pleasure of wrestling him many times. Safe sane considerate funny reliable. Oh did I say he's a good grappler ? Knows what he's doing and will push you as hard as you want / need. Ok, sometimes a little harder. A gent off the mats, a fighter on them. Nuff said.
A really great guy to meet up with and DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE this guy on the mats. He's safe, sane and a very good technical submission wrestler - happy to lock up with Paul again anytime!
I have known and wrestled Paul for many years and he's a good wrestler and excellent company.
I never miss a chance of stepping on to the mats with Ed! He's safe, sane and thoroughly reliable. He's a skilled wrestler, strong and tough. I always come away from a bout having learned something, but also knowing I've had a great time! Don't miss the chance of taking him on.
Paul is a gentleman, and it was nice to have a competitive bout with a bigger man. Strong and tenacious on the mat with bags of endurance, he will give you a good workout! He is warm and charming off the mat too - looking forwards to the next round.
I met Stew today, after reading his other recommendations! He outshone them all! Reliable, safe and sane. Very skilled, strong wrestler, willing to share his expertise on mats. Off the mats, a fun guy with interesting conversation. I look forward to our next match up, even if I get thoroughly beaten again!
Had a GREAT scrap with Paul recently! He's tough, strong, physical and sane on the mats and a true gent off them. He's a really nice fella, who can wrestle as rough as you want! He's a sly dog, too, with loads of mean tricks - never turn your back on him for a second! Totally recommended - drop him a challenge - you won't regret it!
Well, if you want to meet the best, don't turn down a challenge from "The Lad"! We wrestled for a good long time. He delivers a tough, intense submission fight, whilst being perfectly safe and sane. Made me work damn hard, too. Perfect host, and a gent off the mats (if occasionally not a gent on mats!!) Roll on the rematch!!
Paul is a great wrestler...strong, skillful and a gentleman on and off the mats. Can´t wait to meet him again.
Paul is strong, fun and versatile. Great with countermoves.
