I can wrestle with an emphasis on fun rather than competition and do gut punches as a giver. I am just getting back into wrestling after a total knee replacement in May. I plan to attend the Wrestlefest at the end of September for sure. I might go to the July Fest as well. I am very near the special 100 past opponents mark. If you'd like to help me reach my goal, send me a message and let's talk.

Love his built, especially his arms!
Loved every min of our matches at his place.
He has a great set place to wrestle and not to forget he’s excellent hospitality.
His care for the opponent and be ability to have fun was on point.
Richard is serious about building muscles that he uses to great advantage during his matches. His arms and pecs are getting ginormous. He participates in handball tournaments which is evident in his endurance and leg strength. After driving to Cincinnati from Champaign, IL and competing in his tournament, he still had plenty of energy to wrestle for a couple of hours last night. I highly recommend you get a match with him if he is in your area. Meet him soon before he bulks up anymore to make it even more difficult to take on this young bull. Unless of course you enjoy the jobber role in which case, anytime is the right time to meet Richard.
Akrob is recommended by shortfireplug
I had a good time with Rob. He’s pretty strong for his size and has some nice bicep peaks. We traded some holds and did some strength tests. It was great meeting him while I was in Kentucky.

Jimbo is amazing. We had almost 3 hours in his hotel room. He needed to stop so he could go workout. You can see he does that a lot! He practiced some pro holds on me. I fought back as best I could. He graciously let me feel in charge enough so that I wasn’t a total jobber. Strong as an ox but safe as can be.
Looking forward to meeting with Rocker already and he only left a few hours ago. Tough and brave to meet me since I outweighed him by 60 pounds. He enjoyed the struggle as much as I. He bends and doesn’t concede. I bet he’s great as a pro jobber. He says that is his favorite style. He’s working out to put more muscle on his wiry frame. Like him just like he is now.
Akrob is recommended by Lumberjack
Let's see. Totally cool guy, strong as a team of oxen, and packs a mean punch. I was also introduced to the joy and intensity of gut punching. Totally hot. Akrob is a first class person.
Lumberjack is recommended by Akrob
Matt has massively strong legs. At the April Wrestlefest 2019 I watched him get instructions on how to administer leg scissors, so beware. I thoroughly enjoyed our match. He was careful not to injure my bad knees. We'll have a better, wilder match after I get off the injured list. He is coming back to Wrestlefest again. You could see how excited he was to meet several enthusiastic guys for the fun and challenge. To give you an indication of his power and size, he is a hockey goalie. Yes!
Finally got a chance to meet Rob and wrestle. What a great host and a great guy on and off the mats. Very strong and talented. Don't miss an opportunity to have some fun with this guy.
AKRob is such a terrific guy to meet. On the mats he had plenty of fight, is strong, was impressively tough, and can hold up an engaging conversation.
I had so much fun, I’m going to be looking for more group meetups that allow for a repeat. I had a great time with this fantastic wrestler.
I was so happy to meet Sam at the 2019 New York City Wrestlefest. He was so dedicated that he flew in from Seattle. That shows how much he loves wrestling. He is a gentleman off the mats and a strong competitor on the mats. I had asked around about him before our meeting. Every Fester had only good things to say about Sam. He said he hopes to come to wrestle meets in the future. When we are both at the same meet, I will be first in line for a rematch.
Enjoyed my roll with Akrob today. This guy is strong, persistent and doesn't give up easily. Match was easy to arrange and Akrob was reliable. Definitely worth recommending
Superfly is definitely a super fella. He was a very bright spot in a great Wrestlefest this year. His body was a delight and his strength and skill amazing. The match was scheduled long before the Fest and he followed through responsibly. Great time. I encourage everyone to arrange a match with SuperRob.
redlandguy is recommended by Akrob
Well, well, this former teacher just went to school. Redlandguy taught me some basic moves. He was extremely patient ( old dog, new tricks) and the session was quite fun. I can vouch for his big arms and strong legs. If I needed to have something explained more than once, it’s because I couldn’t look him in those big blue eyes without losing concentration now and then. What an enjoyable experience I had! I recommend him highly.
Akrob is recommended by HighwayMan
Akrob is a solid strong wrestler who is well versed in wrestling with quite few moves.
He is very interesting too since he has travelled quite extensively across North America and can tell you stories about his travels.
I highly recommend Akrob.
Have known Akrob for several years, but tried gut punching with him for the first time at Wrestlefest. It was awesome, I've never been punched this good. The mistake I made was to pause the session thinking I could continue later in the day. Should have kept going with him as he is great at working the gut! More to come in future hopefully.
You can see from his amazing photos that condecon is amazingly buff. The photos only hint at the fine lifter who stood before me. Then he lay on his back and offered me some gut punching time on those wonderful abs. I even slipped in a few to his mighty pecs. I got enough time to show him various intensities and speeds while he flexed or relaxed his abs per my directions. I wish I had time to wrestle with him this time, but Festers were lined up waiting their turn with him. With the training regimen he described, he'll have a six pack next time we meet. I can't wait.
Do not fooled by Rob's 5'5 stature - he is strong as an ox and knows what he is doing. He enhanced my knowledge of Gut punching and it was amazing. He worked my abs for over an hour and it was painful and enlightening. I look forward to many more works with Rob and if you are in the area, look him up.
It has already been said in past recommendations what a strong bull DT is. I concur. Just had a great time with him. I love rolling with a guy as strong and buff as Bob. I found out that he loves gut punching so most of our time was spent doing just that. My fist was bouncing off his hard abs. Loved every minute of our encounter. More, please!
Akrob is recommended by darkranger
AKrob is a cool and fun guy to wrestle it out with anytime, meet him and you surely willnot be disappointed
Akrob is recommended by FeistyLilGuy
I’ve been looking forward to this meet for a very long time and Rob definitely didn’t disappoint. You couldn’t ask for a nicer guy or a more gracious host. And when it comes to wrestling, Rob is like a rock and easily controlled the match without expending much effort at all. It’s obvious that he’s well-seasoned and knows how to have a good time with his matches. He has an awesome wrestler body too; stout, solid, strong... my type of opponent for sure. Also a really easy and cool guy to chat with. He even introduced me to his very enjoyable brand of gut punching, which I highly recommend. Overall, he’s one of my favorites and I’m very happy to have had the chance to meet him. I’d happily meet again anytime.
FeistyLilGuy is recommended by Akrob
Wow. Had a great time with Feisty tonight. Wish he lived in town so we could have regular matches. Great body, great conversationalist, great match. He also happens to be cute as a button, but that is besides the point. Highly recommended and will be highly missed.
Know each other and chatted for a few years. Finally got to have a match. He is super nice off the mats and gives it all on the mats. Real strong and great guy.
Akrob is recommended by codywrestler
Rob knows exactly what he is doing and took his time as he read my reactions to his punches. Can't wait to go back for more.
Kevin has been breaking in newbies in the tristate area (OH< IN< KY) for decades. He is always great fun. Aggressive and skilled but always controlled. He controls me as well but I am always enjoying the struggle. I highly recommend Kevin. I can't count how many matches we have had over the years. I'm always eager for another.
Stick is misnamed. He should be called Sequoia, not Stick. If you think bigger is better, then Stick is Much Better. I wasn't able to do much against Stick, but I had a lot of fun. Stick has attended the last two Wriverfest events and he is a big hit with the attendees. Although Stick is new to wrestling, he is a safe match. Highly recommended.
Akrob is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He has hosted these types of events many times over the years, and after thinking about it for a few minutes after my partner and I arrived, I realized this was the second time I had been to one of Akrob's events. It's amazing what a decade, plus a couple of years will and can do skill wise. Hopefully over the last 12 years, I've picked up some skill. Rob is one of the most skilled guys I have ever gone up against. He (and all the other attenders I took on that day), were very respectful of the fact that I was kind of "handicapped" from an injury from the week before. If you get a chance to take on Rob, by all means – do it!
Neil came to my house for a wrestling party, driving about 2 hours to wrestle. That is a dedicated wrestler for you. Wrestling him was a pleasure. His slender, buff body is built for speed and strength. An added bonus: his deep, deep voice is sexy as hell.

he is a good guy to wrestle with and off the mats am hoping everyone gets a chance like i did and hope to see him again

I wrestled Akrob at the fest in April and is a strong opponent and tough. And knows how to take a guy down
Akrob is recommended by pennsgroveguy31
AKROB is a sweet guy off the mats but don't let that sweetness fool you. He is an awesome wrestler on the mats and has an amazing punching technique. Want a good challenge AKROB is your guy.
pennsgroveguy31 is recommended by Akrob
He didn't mention that in addition to being trained in numerous forms of wrestling, he was also a gymnast who has retained his flexibility. What fun it was to wrestle this friendly giant. No need to fear him because all his muscle and training is firmly under control. He'll be in control of the match, but you'll be glad you got on the mats with him. I sure am. Highly recommended and I'd wrestle him again anytime.
Akrob is recommended by mainewrestlingchub
Had a brief, but fun match with Akrob at Wrestlefest weekend. Rob was great about doing some gut punching and he knows what he is doing. Had a great match with him and enjoy him both on and off the mats. Very nice guy, my only complaint was that we had to rush it because we both had to check out of motel. Next match we will plan to make it last longer. Can recommend him for a good match.
mainewrestlingchub is recommended by Akrob
The MaineMan and I had about 20 minutes to squeeze in some gut punching at the end of the fall Wrestlefest 2017. He was a great receiver. I had to pound around numerous bruises that had been inflicted during the Fest by others. My overtaxed arms gave out before his gut and pecs. Next time we'll meet on an earlier Fest day when my arms are fresh and he has no bruises. That will be better, but this was a lot of fun too. I recommend that you enjoy gut punching MaineMan, but wait your turn.
So AK approached me at the end of summer Wrestlefest for a match this weekend. Once we rolled, I learned very quickly that he is solid and knowledge. We stalemated for a bit before both kinda collapsing and taking a breather. After a few rounds, he wore me down and then politely helped me off the mat. Akrob is a very polite GENTLEMAN, but don't let that facade fool you. I shall have to gain some skill for an up and coming rematch.
Vocaljock is quite strong. Since I have a significant advantage with weight, I was surprised that we matched strength and determination. We were at a stand still for half the match. It was a very enjoyable lock up and I hope for a rematch at the next PA Fest. I recommend Jock highly.
Akrob is recommended by liketowrestle
After years of chatting online with Akrob, finally had the opportunity to meet and wrestle with him at Wrestlefest! He is a very hospitable and genuine nice guy off the mats and a strong solid based guy on the mats! Though he was sore and tired from a few days of wrestling activities, he still wanted to wrestle during my short visit to Wrestlefest! Even though he was tired and a little sore before our match, I could tell he was a good wrestler and a solid turtle base to boot! I am truly happy to have meet Akrob in person and highly recommend him to anyone who has the opportunity to meet him! Mark
liketowrestle is recommended by Akrob
There probably isn't anything to say that hasn't already been said about LTW. He is one of the strongest guys I have met. I watched him wrestle several guys before me so I knew he is gifted and skilled. I can brag that I am good at the turtle. With him, I was on my back with no idea of how to get back to my base. As I mentioned, I watched him in action. He wasn't as competitive with me. He's a true gentleman. He adjusts to an opponent's level easily to make sure the match up is fun. Oh, and his photos? They are NO where near accurate about this man's arms. They are huge and ripped. His biceps and triceps both were in excellent relief. As he wrestled man after man, they just got bigger. His calves and legs are breath taking. I can't recommend him highly enough. No wonder he has an astounding number of past opponents!
Rob is one tough dude. He's capable of being impossible to move at times. I struggled during our match to simply move this beast. He's incredibly nice and easy to get along with. But don't think that's who you'll meet on that mat. I will meet this dude again anytime any place and so should you if you ever get the opportunity. You'll definitely walk away a more instinctive and skilled fighter for sure.
Jman is a feisty dude. WE had a long match with lots of exchanges. He used his strength and youthful stamina to pin me repeatedly but I think I had him pinned for long during our hot match up. I'd wrestle him again in a heartbeat. He taught me a lot and honed my skills. I recommend him for a fun, hot match.
dtwwrestler is recommended by Akrob
What a beast this man is! He is intimidating in the nicest way. He's very modest but he can't hide his strength and size. I had a brief match because he exhausted me. It was all I could do to hang on while he tossed me around like a Brahma Bull. He's the bull for sure, and I was the cowboy hanging on for dear life. If I let go, I knew he'd pin me and it would be all over. The struggle was hot as hell. It ended when I lost all power and feeling in my arms and I couldn't hold on any longer. He's fun to chat with before and after the match. Highly recommended.
Akrob is recommended by shortandstockyOH
Small guys rule...(yes...we do!)
Watch out for the arms! Great upper body strength, could effortlessly lift my 160 lb frame off of him (over and over) without even breaking a sweat. Gut and pec punching...he has truly has mastered that craft, in my opinion! Easy on you if you're a novice to gut/pec work, harder if you're more experienced. A very kind and patient gentleman and tenacious mat man all wrapped up in a compact package. Quite an excellent workout and learning experience!
shortandstockyOH is recommended by Akrob
What a pleasure it was to meet SASO. It is rare for me to find an opponent about my size. Let me tell you he has a lot of fight in him. I am actually stockier than him and I deviously used my weight against him. We wrestled and then he received gut punches and pec punches. He just soaked them up and asked for more. After a long, long time, I hit his aggression button. He leaped to action and bowled me over. Great fun. I'm not telling you where this magic button is. You'll have to discover it on your own. Oh, yeah, and I got my first black eye during this match. Now I have a badge of honor to show off at the fall Wrestlefest tomorrow. I highly recommend SASO and his partner JHK.
Rob's softspokeness and stature totally hide the power behind his fists. He has made an artform out of gut and pec work, it was a total pleasure to be on the receiving end and watch this maestro at work. As I told him when we began, I'm not doing this out of a need to be slugged, I'm doing it as part of my conditioning, and he takes the lead in doing it
JHK is a beast. You'll enjoy a match with him. I certainly did. Our match up was for gut punching. He took a lot of punishment. He was gracious about being the receiver without getting to give it back to me. After meeting him for this session, I'm not sure how much I could take from him. Did I mention that he is a beast ?
We look at the wrestler's photos and profiles to help us decide who to wrestle. Apparently going with truth in advertising, Akrob selected a very good profile photo for himself. He is smiling and flexing one of his guns. You focus first on the bicep, but the smile is genuine and that of a nice guy. He is sane, safe and STRONG. If you expect to win, have a game plan to overcome his strength.
Akrob is recommended by Bikerguy516
Akrob was fun to meet here at Wrestlefest. While he is mostly a wrestler, he agreed to do some gutpunching with me. We did gloved and bare fists and I enjoyed every punch that came my way. If you're looking for someone to toughen up your gut in a safe and sane way, give Akrob a try.
Bikerguy516 is recommended by Akrob
Bikerguy was a great receiver for my gut punching enthusiasm. I know he is a great giver as well, but he was gracious enough to only receive for me. I watched him box as well as gut punch. He is quite a fine looking, skillful athlete. He chatted and I can tell he is experienced and fully aware of safety measures to keep the punching/boxing sane and safe.I highly recommend him.
Akrob is recommended by jimmyterrific
He was a very good host, and a very good wrestler, would wrestle him anytime, it was a pleasure
jimmyterrific is recommended by Akrob
Jim attended a wrestling party at my place. We got a chance to wrestle. I'm so glad we did. He is in shape and following the advice of a trainer to become even more skilled and strong. I am hoping to get a chance to wrestle and do some gut punching with Jim before he heads back north. The party is a 2 day affair. He's grappling with all the attendees so his number of opponents will increase dramatically.
Had an awesome time wrestling with akrob. He has a very nice setup and was a great host. Looking forward to wrestling him again when I'm in the area!
This good guy is wonderful wrestler, he has a lot of wrestling technic and strength. Also he knows many wrestling holds and it's very difficult to scape of them. Off the matt he is a very good friend, good chatting, a lot of culture and friendly. Highly recommended
Dynamo is tall, strong, and safe. I enjoyed every minute of our match. I am looking forward to spending more time on the mat with this amazing guy. Such a perfect gentleman off the mats. At the Wrestlefests, I try to sit near him and walk with him to enjoy his company during the social times as well.
I've wrestled Rob many times over the years since I first met him at Hillside many years ago. He's safe and sane on the mats, and a great guy to hang around with when off the mats also. I highly recommend him for anyone who's interested in some good wrestling.
I had a fantastic time with this man during the NY wrestlefest.
I was amazed by both his physical strength and his imaginable arsenal of holds.
He kept me struggling for escape but once he grips you in his thighs you better tap
I need another round,hope you'll let me win this time LOL
Akrob gets my total recommendation!
What a pleasure it was to finally meet up with Nikos. After viewing his many photos, I was mostly prepared for how this hot jobber can take punishment. It is easy to tell that his core strength could take over as heel if he were so inclined. Be prepared for an unexpected bonus. He has a sexy voice he uses to complete the role of jobber. His stamina wasn't put to the test by me during our match. I knew that he had tons of reserve energy just waiting in that slim, sexy bod. I highly recommend you meet Nikos is at all possible. Over a hundred other opponents agree with me that he is a wrestling gem.
Akrob is recommended by averagejoe
AKROB is one of the good ones. This wrestler is unbelievably strong for his size, and can always be counted on for a tough and resiliant match up. For all of the great rolls we have had together, the first word that comes to mind is fun; I have never had less than an awesome match with this guy. In addition, he is a gentleman through and through, both on the mats and off. You will not meet a nicer, more caring person in our chosen sport. So if you want some good, challenging, competitive sub wrestling, and you want to make a lasting friend while you're at it, AKROB is your guy. Seek him out.
averagejoe is recommended by Akrob
Averagejoe is a tall, tan rasslin' man.
You'll have a blast trying to hold off his lightning moves.
He is even stronger than he looks, and did I mention, QUICK?!
I always look forward to another match with Joe when we attend the Wrestlefests in PA and NYC.
I've seen him win and lose, since he takes on all comers, and he always has a joyous attitude. You can just feel how much he is enjoying himself while wrestling.
Find time for a match with this wrestling gem; you won't be disappointed, in the least.

Finally got to meet the famous AKRob!!! Had a blast rassling around on his Mats. Got to have my first tag match, oil match and fatal four way match all in one meeting. Cool guy, great host and fun wrestler! Hope to do it again next time I'm in town!
Black Titan is recommended by Akrob
I had an exciting time with Titan. A four-way, tag team oil match. I am so happy he came down from MI to sample the local talent in Cincinnati. I will be visiting Detroit to return the favor. A four hour drive is worth a rematch with this beast of a man. Don't miss a chance to experience this fun man.

Rob and I have hosted each other many many times...both in Ohio & Indiana...always fun, only regret is that we havent really filmed...he is great fun and always gives a great workout/workover...I'v met him at many different weights (both of us) but always very satisfying. He is also an outstanding host and, a good friend..interested being tied up in his basement...gut punched hanging or against a pole...hope we have many more meetings

Rob is a veteran of the wrestling scene. Dependable and reliable. Willing to do a variety of styles.
bigchicago is recommended by Akrob
This is a great guy. He adjusts to smaller guys safely and easily. I had much fun wrestling with Alex at The Clash this year in 2016. I saw him wrestle other big guys in a tournament. His match was voted best of the Clash. Don't pass up Bigchicago if you are offered a match.
Met Akrob this afternoon after he graciously drive 4 hours one way to meet. After chatting for a bit, we hit the mats. He is a great guy and VERY strong. He introduced me to gutpunching, which was very enjoyable. Would definitely wrestle him again.
Justin is a gracious host. We chatted about wrestling and wrestlers before hitting the mats. Very nice set up with wall-to-wall mats lead to an hour or two of trading holds, testing strength, and a fun struggle. I'd make the long drive again to meet up with this tall, young man and droll again. I recommend you do, too.
Akrob is recommended by Brown Bomber
I have known AK for several years but we never really wrestled much just exchanged holds but he is a good wrestler and knows a lot and even taught me some things I was not doing correct as far as holds go. A swell guy off the mats too and glad we got to know each other and I look forward for another get together in the near future
Strong and cuddly, AkRob is not to be underestimated. AkRob is talented, his upper body strength will overwhelm you if you are not careful ;) He can easily hold you down and he can resist your scissors or any other holds you try to throw on him.
On top of that, Akrob has an amazing personality. He also can adjust his style easily based on the wrestling styles that you prefer.
Akrob is recommended by SilverFoxFight
Rob is a terrific host and has a great mat area in his home. I have enjoyed fun wrestling and even a little boxing with him on many occasions. Be sure to attend one of his wrestling weekend events! D
SilverFoxFight is recommended by Akrob
I have had the pleasure of wrestling the Fox numerous times. I selected the date of just one of them. He is enthusiastic and strong. He is more skilled than I am but manages to make me feel like a winner. I've seen him box, and that is his great joy. He is quick and can make a match last for hours. Size doesn't matter to him at all. He'll take on much larger opponents eagerly. I highly recommend him. WE've wrestled at my place and on mats at his place as well.

Good match good gut work over as well. Definitely going to try and take him down again!

Big guy! Big pecs! Big guns! Fun match up. I could tell when he had enough gut punching when he got me in a head scissors to make me tap again. He didn't even need to use his tree trunk legs and huge calves.Can't wait for a rematch. I highly recommend an match with the mighty, generous wrestler.
Rob is an awesome match. Very strong and doesn't let up till his opponent gives. I really had a great time. Can't wait to meet him again. Trust me he's a great competitor.
AkRob was a lot of fun to roll with, still has it at his age, and is a great guy with a brilliant mind off the mats.
Rob is a skilled and tough wrestler, and a heck of a good guy on and off the mats. Highly recommended.
AKRob is a giving and gracious host. He participants for the enjoyment of the sport. Does have a good setup for wrestling and minor grappling. I do enjoy when he has hosted wrestling parties and deserves the respect of those men who attend. Anyone, who disrespects or intentionally tries to harm him, will have to answer to me personally.
