While the conditions were not ideal (2 big guys on a queen sized bed) it was an absolute pleasure meeting AthleticDad. We will definitely have to roll this one back on some mats so we can get a true test of each other’s grit. Even with the limited space he was a ton of fun on and off the mats. Easy to set up a match with and if he says he will be there he shows up! I look forward to our next meeting.

I learned two things meeting up with wrestleinsocks: never try to have a real match on a queen size bed and that I can't wait to reconnect and wrestle him when one of us can host on our mats. Despite our limited space, had a fun time rolling with this strong, athletic guy who can clearly deliver a challenge with his experience and skill. Easy to coordinate a match with, enjoyable to converse with, and easy to recommend to anyone wanting a tough but safe match!
AthleticDad is recommended by midwestspeedo
AtheleticDad is a nice guy off and on the mats. Very tough but there's no ego and he's all about a safe and sane match that's also fun. He knows a lot of moves and likes to teach and apply those moves to his opponents. I do spend most of the time playing defense, but that's a good skill to have as well. It's a great workout and learning experience, and he's a great conversationalist!
midwestspeedo is recommended by AthleticDad
Have wrestled this guy a couple times and, despite our size difference, get in a great workout and enjoy every minute we wrestle. I appreciate his determination and effort in addition to his good instinct on how to attempt submission on a bigger opponent. While he's humble about it, he's got some solid muscle and strength to keep me on my toes. I hope for many more matches in the future!
AthleticDad is recommended by 165er
We talked, we committed, and we executed. Super easy and reliable in terms of logistics and couldn't ask for better grappling space. Had a great time with this bruiser. Rounds of grappling. As he said, I could hold my own (and even do better than that!) but only as long as I didn't get underneath 200 plus pounds of muscle. Then it was tap, tap, tap. Really enjoyed the competition and the easy going conversations in between. Will be back on his turf to make him tap again. Couldn't recommend him more for a good BJJ style grapple.
165er is recommended by AthleticDad
Grabbed a match with 165er during his recent trip to Minnesota. Despite our size difference, he's a tough and tenacious competitor and held his own during the match! Respect given for his interest in taking on guys he anticipates might dominate but give him a good workout and challenge. Overall great communicator and good guy off the mats too!
AthleticDad is recommended by Green
Awesome meet up with AthleticDad during his western tour. This guy is athletic, very strong, and clearly skilled ( read BJJ guy) . He has the right mixture of aggression and fun. Fair warning this guy is impossible to move once he has you pinned. I really enjoyed chatting and our meet up and even though we were at it for over an hour, it felt like it was only round one. Super nice guy, easy to communicate with, easy to hang out with, smiles the whole time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and I look forward to round two.
Green is recommended by AthleticDad
Green and I had some good chat going prior to meeting up for a match and our time together did not disappoint! Aside from having very strong (and sexy) legs that could easily put you out in his wicked headscissors, he's a very kind and considerate guy. He made a joking reference to "you BJJ guys" during our match but knows how to hold his own and defend against what "us BJJ guys" attempt for submissions. I'd recommend and welcome round 2!
AthleticDad is recommended by mattz4fun
What a great rematch! This hot guy comes back bigger better faster and stronger. We worked up a hard sweat. His ability to counter some of my moves kept me working hard. In the end a great way to reconnect. I'll need to keep strong for the next round!
mattz4fun is recommended by AthleticDad
Finally had the opportunity to reconnect with this great guy for a rematch from our first meet up at least a decade ago. While Mattz4fun accommodated my recently sustained knee injury, we worked up a good sweat where I was reminded of his solid strength, skill, and stamina. First time someone impressively squatted while holding my weight! It's not too much to say that I really love this guy and look forward to a growing friendship and more matches in the years to come! There's a reason we reconnected after all these years.
AthleticDad is recommended by Jsubwrestler
I had the pleasure of meeting and wrestling AthleticDad while he was passing through. He’s a big strong guy, tough too and knows how to be aggressive while safe and controlled as well. He was fun to wrestle and I also enjoyed chatting with him as well—definitely an altogether positive experience meeting this guy so I gotta recommend, and I’d look forward to seeing and wrestling him again down the road.
Jsubwrestler is recommended by AthleticDad
I had a great time working up a sweat with this skilled, athletic guy. Don't let his size fool you. Every time I thought I'd get at least side mount his legs would find their way in to block my moves. Rolling with this guy was the perfect combination of skill and fun. Aside from the match, it was a pleasure getting to know this quality guy as we conversed during and after the match. I'm looking forward to hosting him when he can make it to my mats in Minnesota!
AthleticDad is recommended by Qsparrer
I had a blast wrestling Athletic Dad! I'm glad he was able to stop by Colorado Springs; the match was super sweaty and challenging. I was able to get a few submissions from him, but only when I caught him off guard. He really knows his techniques, and once he gets you pinned or gets ahold of your neck, it's game over. He's also smart, funny, and a substantial conversationalist. Don't miss a chance to wrestle him! Can't wait for our next meet!
Qsparrer is recommended by AthleticDad
I had the fortunate opportunity to wrestle this guy on a road trip through his area. He's highly motivated, full of energy, and clearly learning more skill with every match. The playful talk in the weeks prior to the match made it clear we would have both a good workout and fun time. Our match did not disappoint. Definitely hit him up for a match if you're visiting his area!
AthleticDad is recommended by MKell
Had a great match with AthleticDad tonight. He has a great mat setup which was covered with sweat by the time we were done grappling. It is clear AthleticDad has bjj training - he is athletic, strong and skilled. It was a fun to workout with this gracious host and good guy. I look forward to round 2!
MKell is recommended by AthleticDad
Hosted a match with MKell tonight and had a great time with a great guy. Very strong and highly skilled grappler who dominated this one-sided match yet kept it controlled and fun. Gave me some crap for my trash talk prior to the match and certainly earned his right to give it back. Hope to meet up again and hope to give him a challenge next round!
AthleticDad is recommended by headscissorschgonwburbs
Well I was pinned in 2 seconds per Doug but i say 3 seconds he had a weight advantage haha. Doug also wrestled with James and got some lessons on BJJ from James good conversation and good time
submissiowrestling is recommended by AthleticDad
I was told when I started training BJJ to manage my energy and not to be afraid of losing. Well, with this guy I didn't have much choice! I'd like to say I was tired from a long weekend of other matches but the truth is I was simply outwrestled by this technically skilled, strong guy who got submission after submission. Great host, easy to communicate with, and if I were in his area would challenge him regularly to improve my game.
AthleticDad is recommended by Coleman
Had a great match with AthleticDad. He's is pretty strong guy and even got a couple submissions out of me. Always I enjoy a challenge and he did not disappoint. If you get a chance to wrestle him, take it. Definitely recommend.
Coleman is recommended by AthleticDad
Had a great time wrestling Coleman. Very easy to coordinate a match with this sexy, strong guy. He has a wicked headscissors and very strong legs so watch out as he knows how to get you there quickly! Perfect combination of both fun and competition. Hope to have round 2 or more.
AthleticDad is recommended by facepinmn
Fun match, strong, Dominant pinner. Safety conscience yet determined. Unescapable schoolboy pin
AthleticDad is recommended by Highschoolwrestler
This guy was a blast to wrestle. Strong and skilled, he definitely taught me a thing or two. Great guy off the mats too. Would definitely be open to a rematch!
AthleticDad is recommended by Kayden
Great match with a very skilled wrestler. Also a great conversationalist, almost spent as much time talking as wrestling and loved it. Had a hot time working up a serious sweat with this man and definitely looking forward to round 2
Kayden is recommended by AthleticDad
I had a great time wrestling Kayden on my recent trip to Boston. He was flexible in scheduling a match given my uncertain commitments and a great communicator. Definitely a good challenge to wrestle, a lot of fun, and has amazing stamina (as well as great legs). Will be looking for round 2 on my next trip east.
