As soon as the men hit the floor, their bodies intermingle in fair fight. On the ground the grapplers pit their strength, speed and skill against each other, trying to master the other guy.
Hold – counter – reversal: a merciless game of speed chess between two well-trained bodies.
Body Chess: In a fast and fierce fight the men grapple for domination on the mat:
Out-grappled: lights out for the pretty boy:
After a day of gradually more and more severe performance issues, I think I managed to nail what was causing it and fixed it. I hope I'm not jinxing that :) After some software and hardware tweaks, the site is now running faster than ever!
Other than this, there have been a number of small and medium changes:
I am now working on a calendar project, mostly for my own use. If it becomes mature enough, I might end up incorporating it in AllFighters too. Stay tuned...
Also, season's greetings and Happy New Year to all! :)
Let the bodies hit the floor ...
With all his might, the boy throws his opponent:
An uplifting experience:
I will be on a wtrestling vacation to the US and Canada from 13 April to 19 July 2012. My itinerary in order will be Hawaii, Phoenix, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Dallas, Then a road trip along the west coast from San Diego to Vancouver Canada. Then a circuit from Chicago taking in the Central North-Eastern States as far down as Virginia and finally Montreal and Toronto in Canada. From there I fly back to LA for afew days before heading home.
If there are any wrestlers who would like to meet me for some horny wrestling action during this trip get in touch and I will take your etails and get back to you with my actual dates in your area once I have made all my htel bookings in early 2012.

Jumping on the opponent:
The first phase of a wrestling match, stand-up fighting, can be very exciting to watch. Both guys try to take down each other, or they may even try to apply some submission techniques while both are still on their feet.
But the main goal of stand-up grappling is to bring down your opponent to the ground. In many traditional forms of wrestling the fight is restricted to the stand-up position alone and a wrestler is defeated, as soon as he touches the ground with any other body part than his feet or knees.
Stand-up fighting requires just as much, if not more, skill than ground fighting. You have to be quick (physically and mentally), nimble, focused. You need superior body control and sense of balance. The possibilities to bring down your opponent – or vice versa to be brought down by him – are limitless.
However, before one throws his opponent, there is usually some form of pummeling between the two, when they try to get the right hold.
''... The two girded themselves and
went into the middle of the ring. They gripped each other in
their strong arms like the rafters which some master-builder
frames for the roof of a high house to keep the wind out. Their
backbones cracked as they tugged at one another with their mighty
arms–and sweat rained from them in torrents. Many a bloody weal
sprang up on their sides and shoulders, but they kept on striving
with might and main for victory ...''
(Homer, Iliad, Book XXIII)
