Profile of Bearmaker (16)
Looking to grapple and prefer guys near my size (give or take 25 pounds). Others, I am more than willing to practice holds and moves.
Live on Miami Beach and am in good shape and can be very competitive. Enjoy most forms of wrestling including submission wrestling, oil wrestling and non-competitive wrestling.
I can host and I have mats. Safe and sane always.

Finally got to meet up with Slimwrestler12. It was definitely worth the wait.
He is super guy both on and off the mats. i had a lot of fun rolling around on the mats with him and talking with him afterwards.
Can wait until our next meeting.
Bearmaker is the total package, a lot of fun to wrestle, and a pretty great guy overall. His initial worries about our height differences proved unnecessary as he more than held his own. If you’re ever in the MIA area do yourself a favor and link up with this one. I’m totally in line for our next one.
Had a great, hard fight with this stud. He's a class act. Strong. Trained. Hopefully he'll return for more. It was time well spent.
Had a great time rolling with FLGulfGuy. He is a strong and experienced grappler. He also has a good set-up to host matches.
Highly recommend that you contact him if you're going to be in the Tampa Bay area. I look forward to more matches with him.

I met Bearmaker at his hotel room during his stay in Beirut. He showed me some holds and then we proceeded to wrestle. He is a strong wrestler who knows his moves and he kept submitting me; once he locked his armbar, there was no way for me to escape.
Bearmaker is also very fun and interesting to talk to. We got to spend some time together after our match and he is sweet and charming (and handsome). I can't wait to wrestle him again.

Finally got to meet up with this handsome guy while i was in Beirut. Joe is a super guy. We had a fun time grappling in my hotel room and went for lunch afterwards.
He is eager to learn new things and we had a good time both wrestling and practicing moves and submissions. Off the mats, he is a joy to talk to about a variety of subjects. Really enjoyed our lunch at an Armenia restaurant in Beirut.

Spent some time on the mats with Bearmaker. A really generous guy with his space - he’s got mats at home. And his knowledge - he’s a lifelong athlete that has recently taken up Jiu-Jitsu and he was willing to teach this newbie some of his moves. Strong man. Great safe and sane company. A class act.

Had a good time with WrestleDad. He is a super nice guy and we had a lot of fun practicing submission holds. He's a novice, but is willing to learn and practice.
If you're in South Florida, you should meet up with him. He's super friendly and reliable.

Our match was pretty spontaneous, but man, I was glad I got to meet with him before I left South Florida. We wrestled for a while. I gave him all the strength I could muster. Bearmaker is very strong and will give you a fun challenge. He was a great, easy to talk to, and handsome host. I also highly recommend him for anybody around his area. Can't wait for our next match.

Finally got to grapple with Asianwrestler. So glad i did before he left South Florida.
We had several rounds of submission wrestling. He was much stronger than i anticipated and stronger than his pictures suggest. He made me work hard at everything.
He is a super guy and easy to talk with and very nice to look at. I highly recommend him to anyone who will be in the Orlando area. Looking forward to our next match.

Finally got to meet and grapple with this handsome stud. We had several rounds of submission wrestling that was both intense and fun.
He is a super nice guy and so friendly to talk to during the match and off the mats. Look forward to future matches against him.
Should note that we had a third participant in our mix, so the dynamics of the evening were special and everyone had a super time.
Bearmaker is a strong, good shape guy. I really enjoyed the wrestling match with him. He knows some Jiu jitsu skills. At the end of our match he tried to play gut punching with me. I was really excited that he was willing to take a lot of punches. I thought I almost destroyed his abs. but he told me that his abs still good. If you want to wrestling with him. Do not hesitate!! Go and try to beat this super nice and easy going man. You will have an amazing time. Highly recommend!
Finally got to grapple with Peter. He is a Strong and skilled wrestler and we had a good workout. We are evenly matched, so the wrestling was fun and exhausting.
Peter is a super nice guy and great guy on and off the mats. Look forward to future matches with him.
First time for a lot of gut punching for me, but it was all good and safe. Looking forward to more of it.
bowolverine is recommended by Bearmaker
Bowolverine is a super guy. Had a fun afternoon of rolling around the mats with him with me on the bottom most of the time. He took it easy on me, since I was a little injured, even though he had his own recent injury. Can't imagine how tough he would be without his leg all bandaged up.
We had a great discussion off that mats too. Really nice, knowledgeable guy. Look forward to future grappling sessions when we're both at full strength.
Wrestled Bear in a hotel match when he was visiting DC. He may be recent to BJJ but he's got the strength of that bear and his bearhugs show it big time. Strong and methodical, one of his choke holds is bound to get you to tap.
Nice guy in and out of battle. Look forward to hosting him on mats the next time he's in town. Highly recommend to contact him whenever you're in Miami.
I had a nice, sweaty match with Rock20087 in a hotel room on my recent trip to DC. It was a lot of fun rolling around and testing each other's strength. Next time I hope we can do it on mats and have more room to throw each other around.
I highly recommend Rock20087 for anyone in or visiting the DC area. He puts up a good fight and seems to be able to go on forever. looking forward to my next DC trip so we can grapple some more.

A fun BJJ session! We’re both beginners, close in size so we got to toss each other around. Too bad we didn’t have mats and proper space. Great guy. It was way too brief but looking forward to the next time.

Had a great time rolling around with Ham. Super nice guy and was a gentleman on and off the mats.
Highly recommend him for anyone looking for a strong dependable grappler. Plan to hit him up the next time I’m in atlanta.
Great guy to talk with and we had fun practicing holds.

Bearmaker is just starting to pick up wrestling, but don't let your guard down: he is a lifelong athlete who keeps himself in amazing shape and is far stronger than he looks! Additionally, he just started taking formal lessons and I have no doubt he will be a force to be reckoned with in no time.
Off the mats, he is an amazing host with a superb mat set up; and so interesting to talk with, I regret having a flight to catch and being unable to grab a beer with him.

Not sure I can add much to his previous good reviews, but I'll try. He is a super guy and strong, knowledgeable wrestler. He was a pleasure to grapple with on the mats and to talk with off the mats.
He is quite strong and very competitive. He knows many good, unique submission holds and moves. He was very patient with my lack of skills and was willing to provide good advice. He was very considerate of keeping it safe and fun.
I look forward to my next match with him. I can only hope i can be more competitive the next time. I plan to be.
Took a while to get in a room with bearmaker and circumstance did try to alter our course at the last minute but luckily he’s a flexible enough guy that we got on the mats a couple days earlier than planned.
Bearmaker is new to combat sports but he is definitely one to watch. He has an intensity and drive in a match that I don’t see in a lot of people. Every time we broke he had questions about what I did or he did that did or didn’t work; the guy is paying attention to detail. He’s keeping up with the game in his head and he’s learning from it. That’s fundamental.
He’s training BJJ so he’s bound to quickly pick up skill that’ll set him apart from your average home amateur by the end of the year for sure. Hopefully I’ll get to keep fighting him through that process.
Bearmaker is very conscious of safety, had to remind him to actually crank a submission a little bit to get me to tap even when he’d get a clean setup. Which may sound silly but I do very much respect that in a beginner. It’s hard to know how much force to use and he errs on the side of safety. Which is essential and made me feel very safe on the mat with him.
If you are of the mind to run drills, at whatever skill level, I think this is one man you should definitely be looking to start a friendship with. He’d be a good training partner to see regularly and work things out with beyond the constraints of a class.
He has a really good space, even if he can’t use it all the time, if he offers to host you definitely accept. It’s much better on his mats than any motel room.
All in all, Bearmaker is new to the game but has the makings of a dominant grappler. If you’re here to win I’d say catch him early but if you’re here for the love of it and to learn, like I am, join me I’m tryna keep catching this guy as he works his way to the top.
Finally got to grapple with Lightning. It was a great match and certainly worth the wait.
He is a worthy opponent and a super guy off the mats. I really enjoyed my match with him and he is a competitive guy... as am I. We were also able to practice holds and moves on each other, which is great for me, since I am still learning.
All and all, I worked up a lot of sweat and expended much energy. Totally exhausted after our match and practice.
Can't wait for our next match.
I really enjoyed an afternoon with Bearmaker, great host, very fit body, and welcoming on and off the mats. Hope to meet him again !

Eventhough he says he is new to this, he is very strong and competitive!! A gentleman on the mats and out... we had a great sweaty time!! I really recomend him... and waiting for another match!!!

Miamiscorpio is a great guy and wrestler. We had a very competitive, exhausting and sweaty match.
He was very helpful in teaching me a couple of submission holds as I am a newby. He is quite strong and skilled. I can't wait until our next match.
