Introduction

About me:
I love a good grappling workout and I have build up a bit of knowledge about BJJ in the years here on Meetfighters. My eagerness to learn more and to train with people is endless. Therefore I'm organizing training sessions where people can roll and fight each other every week. Feel welcome if you are looking for a good workout and want to improve your technique.


I’m also interested in one on one matches with people that are in shape or up to 90 kg. If you have enough condition to grapple actively and like to measure up: lets connect!

DavidVdw is recommended by RWre13

That's the kind of moments which can be rare on Meetfighters, when two training grapplers can meet on real mats.
That is what I wanted with this guy and it did not disappoint at all. It was a real pleasure to roll with him because we both had some knowledge about attacks and defense and having a similar Wright. Everything went smooth and natural, and most of all very friendly! The only negative point is that I wish it was longer.
Outside the mat, it is easy to organize with David and you will meet a very kind and fierce person, do not hesitate ! I hope to see you soon

Me and Rwre13 have same weight and similar experience fighting no-gi. And you could tell it when we where fighting! Boy we both struggled to get a dominant position and finally the submission. I love those kind of fights where the opponent is so balanced out against you that it results in a long, exhilarating, exhausting round.

On top of that RWre13 is a handsome, charismatic man, bringing positive vibes with him on the mats. I’d love to take some more time to get to know him a bit better off the mats as well after our rematch!

Not being a BJJ fighter, I left at a big disadvantage to this accomplished young wrestler who is fighting for the final word. Everyone here has noted that D. is a seasoned athlete. Also I want to point out the other part that is less talked about but shows how much this site allows for great encounters.
He is more than a nice guy, he is warm, funny, very interesting in conversation and I have to say that we had a great time together before and after the game.
I strongly recommend him.

Wrstlsports invited me over to his place on the last day of my Paris trip for a match. Being still very much depleted by the fights I had the other day we agreed to go slow this time.

He was a total gentleman and a great host and I enjoyed spending my (first and) last moments in Paris with him. He is a kind and gentle person and a good listener and communicator. Making sure that his guest is comfortable at all times.

Thanks for letting me taste a bit of the french cuisine! ☺️

GREAT rolling, python vs python! and believe me, this super guy, well built and smilling is a real warrior on mats... we met at the Fightroom of Paris with some others (thanks to IDF, as always...) Great moments... And David was a rough opponent, technical too, but always dominant in attitude and gesture. I love that, I am like him. I dominate some first rolling... but at the end, for the ultimate rolling we were just equals and rolling and rolling like 2 snakes never ending fight....
This guy is a MUST-MEET, ok guys ? soon, he will collect LOT of victories...
He is in fit, perfect fit...
cant wait for a rematch, Come on !

Put Judo skills and muscles in the blender and you get something sweeter than a mars candy bar. You get Judomars!

Judomars was able to get into a dominant position fairly easily during our match. Smothering and crushing me for the major part of the game with his weight. I was able to escape a couple of times and get him in an unpleasant position, in turn boosting my mental state because those moments made him swear at me. I enjoyed fighting with this guy a lot, he knows what he is doing and will give you a hard time!

So i don’t need to tell you that in the end, JudoMars got the best of me. I’m still enjoying our fight via all the stiff muscles in my body. Thank you for that! 😁

Despite recovering from a knee and ankle injury. Wresbear75 made sure to have a go at me.

Being active in a wrestling, he‘s not that green behind his ears and knows how to take control over his opponent. I’m certain he will easily have the upper hand over the majority of other guys here on MF.

I enjoyed our fight, Wresbear75 is no pushover and will make you work for his submission.

After our fight we went out in the city and i had some nice conversations with this guy over the Parisian way of life. He was a great host, showing me around a little for nice foods and ice creams. I enjoyed it a lot.

Hope to fight you again in the future and i recommend you to anyone who likes a competitive fight! 💪🏻

Afrikan Wrestler is recommended by DavidVdw

!18-09-2022!

I loved every minute of the fight i had with Afrikan Wrestler during my trip in Paris. From the second that he walked through the door and i got to see that handsome face, to the moment we started fighting and i got a glimpse of his beautiful build body. Till the end where we took some time to get to know each other.

Setting a date went smoothly, in chat Afrikan Wrestler is not a man of many words, except for one thing: he loves to deal out a punch with trash talk. Otherwise expect short and efficient communication. The most important thing is that he honours his words. In real life he is communicative, open and friendly.

On the mat you will be fighting with a power house, more technical than an average meetfighter, but still relaying on his force to get the upper hand. He has excellent body awareness ( moving in a controlled way) and plays the game safe.

Also strategically he has a good game, i was lucky to catch him by surprise a couple of times but once he knows what I wanted to do, he found ways to block that part of my game. Effectively pushing me more towards the defensive part of my game.

So thank you again for the nice evening and I hope for a rematch in the future 👊🏻

Ohh mann…, i’m a bit starstruck by this guy. Not because he is that great of a wrestler (yet), but damn… this man’s personality resonated very strongly with me!

I’ve got the pleasure to spend a fair amount of time with Urban green spaces. And over the days I just found that my smile was growing over my ears whenever I saw him. It felt as we were close friends in an instant.

The mat time was a lot of fun too, he gave me plenty of good laughs with his attempts to escape certain holds or making witty remarks. But credits to him: he gave himself fully and is no pushover. It is just a matter of experience and it can change quickly once he knows how to handle a groundfight better.

Very happy that I’ve met up with you buddy and I hope to see more of you in the future. Now you’ve got a taste out of fighting I hope you are hungry for more because I’d love to see the day where you submit me for the first time. 💪🏻

I just met David, and despite him being so much more advanced than I am, was patient and showed me some basic moves and holds.
If you are looking for someone who knows what they are doing, and is technically very advanced, then he is your man.

This is the first time that I grappled with someone without knowing that he is on Meetfighters. What a nice surprise!

Guy321 was very welcoming and eager to fight me. Although he expresses after the fight that he is not very comfortable in no-gi grappling, he gave me a hard time and was pinning me successfully on the ground for the majority of our match. And all of this after he already went trough a couple of training sessions that day. He moves swiftly and quickly and knows his game.

Off the mats he’s a lovely guy, he loves a good laugh and is cheerful in a way that makes you feel comfortable.

Looking forward to that moment! 👊🏻

He put up a good fight, resisting my attacks as long as possible and he was keen on coming back for more. This guy definitely likes to fight and he is always welcome to challenge me again!

Also: have a wonderfull end of the year! :D

DavidVdw was a nice suprise at a BJJ camp! He was nice to talk to during the breaks and debrief about techniques and moves you learned. As he said, he got injured but he was still diligent about watching as many classes as he could. I saw him in action before his injury and he is not afraid to roll with more experienced people. Despite his injury, we got a chance to roll. He has long legs and knows how to use them! He has good technique too.

On a side note, I am impressed with how he's organized to help others have a space to train and improve their wrestling/bjj. That isn't easy and I hope to make it to one of the trainings one day.

Recover well and until the next time!

DavidVdw was kind enough to invite me to join his open mat during my time in Belgium, and I had the good fortune to wrestle him and some other members of his club.

David is skilled technically (far more so than I), so I enjoyed attempting to hold my own while having my arm twisted in ways I can only describe as Flemish.

On the mats this guy is a fierce fighter: he does not give up, keeps coming back for more and is difficult to tire out.

Off the mat it is difficult for me describe nycguy86, I usually get to know people better through one on one interactions and we did not really have those moments. We first went for a swim with the group, and afterwards tasted the famous Belgian "French fries".
But definitely NYC guy is a polite, spontaneous and friendly guy.

Last thing to add here is that i'm jeaulous about his figure, those abs are really showing off!

What a nice surprise to find this gorilla outside the MF community! After talking with him about half an hour, we decided to wrestle the next morning, meeting up on the beach alongside the Rhine. It was a nice, spontaneous fight and I can't imagine a better way to start the day. I just love getting my blood flow pumped up in the morning and on top of that I enjoyed the soothing river whilst cooling off in the Rhine.

On the mats you'll encounter a big, strong opponent with a descent amount of stamina. IGorilla fights in a controlled way, taking the time to see how much strength he can unleash and increasing the intensity as he got more comfortable taking on against a smaller opponent. This time i could handle him well because the difference in experience, but that may change soon because he recently started training in a club. He will become more technical, manage his energy more efficiently and I hope to become one of his first targets to beat. 💪🏻

After the fight we spend some time together with drinks and food. Igorilla is a smart and communicative man. I had a couple of nice discussion with him about life, both the good and the bad. I could relate with him on a number of things and i find it fascinating to finally get to know someone with the same zodiac sign (where are all those Capricorns hiding?!?!?).

Great to meet David finally. 90 minutes of non-stop rolling from this young buck. I think I managed to submit him once with one of his own submissions - but otherwise I was defending the constant barrage of subs from his deck. He started by saying lets warm up with a light roll and then we rolled at high pace for 90 minutes and we could have gone on for longer if our room booking had not run out. David is a good humoured opponent, safe and friendly, and intelligent and serious about giving a good workout and match. He also does a very good tour of Mechelen including brunch.Thoroughly recommended and happy to stay in touch and throw down a rematch sometime.

Jerre and me play in the same local gay volleyball club. So we knew each other already long before his initiation in Brazilian Jujitsu. He showed interest in my BJJ initiative here in Mechelen and once he got the taste of it he wanted more. So now he is one of the regulars on our weekly training sessions. What a nice surprise! :)

Jerre has a lot in his advantage already, he is a very sporty guy. And because of that he has great base and stability, and a lot of strength and stamina. Sometimes he is missing direction, not knowing how to proceed the game. But with the curiosity he is displaying he will be a great adversary for the average MF'er in a couple of years. I'm looking forward to guide him and see him develop his game over time.

It took me a while to write a recommendation for David; not that he really needed one, he has plenty of good ones (and deservedly so).

David picked me up in Mechelen and I immediately got friendly vibes from him, he is very a nice and sweet guy. However, everything changes when he steps in the ring ... He turns into a machine. Brutal and technical, he gave me the kind of match I was hoping for. I loved every minute of it, even if it meant ending up in a choke more times than not.

Setting up a match with him was just a matter of time and went smoothly.

On the mats Rgf44 is a strong grappler: both his upper body as his legs pack a lot of power. Making me break a sweat in the first couple of minutes which is always a nice indicator of what is going to be a good fight. Stamina wise Rgf44 is also a great adversary, the breaks we had were rather short and we could keep going at each other for a good amount of time before catching our breaths. I would gladly train with this guy more often since he is rather competitive and brings a lot of resistance to the game.

After the fight we took some time to have a drink in the sun. I felt 100% relax with Rfg44: he brings a positive vibe and has an open communication style and knows how to have an interesting conversation.

So thanks for the nice afternoon and I will be pulling your sleeve for a fight more frequently. 🤗

Roulle44 decided to do a fighting weekend in Belgium and was so kind to challenge me for a match. Setting up a timeslot with him went very smooth. And before i knew it i found myself staring down in the eyes of my opponent.

This fighter is a strong one: a good technical background, lots of stamina and a strong will to dominate the mats. All of which contributes to an exhausting and sweaty match, the kind of fight i like most.

Our fight went back and forth and we were able to exploit each others openings and make each other tap. In the very end I had to throw in the towel in the ring completely drained with cramps in my legs. So extra stamina points for him 🤗

After the fight we took the time to eat something in Mechelen and talked about our MF experiences and our lives. Off the mats you will meet a friendly guy who is passionate about meeting the MF community and loves to explore Europe in the meantime.

I fully recommend this guy to anyone looking for a nice workout!

He happened to around in the area and was able to roll with us for the first hour of the training.

Frits is a strong guy and has some experience here on MF. He gained enough technique to stand his ground in the MF community. He certainly gave me a good sweat and i enjoyed our match.

Thanks for the nice bout and know you are welcome to come to the event for another round. ;)

Saw the events David organised passing by on Meetfighters, not very closeby but also not far away. So in about 90 minutes by car i found myself back in a venue in Mechelen: 10 wrestlers on the mats. The event was well organised by David: warming up, technique and rolling/sparring. Most fighters were lighter than me so i tried to adapt: not using my weight (advantage) too much, just more on technique.
Also had a roll with David, which was fun! David has a very good technique, is fast and knows "how to play chess with his body". It was a very intense exhausting roll mainly on technique, where David submitted me couple of times. My roll with David was extended because he forgot the timekeeping this round; but wouldn't mind when we rolled even longer.
Hope to return to this event; was really great fun!!

Me and Sid fought a small round during our weekly MF meeting.
At first glance this man look very impressive and even a bit intimidating. He has a well build body, with big strong limbs.

On the mats however I was reasurred very quickly that Sid fights in a safe and sane manner. He is a very consious fighter, made sure i felt comfortable during the fight and not abusing his weight advantage to submit me. Watch out for the strenght of his grip though... i needed to use both arms to detach myself from one of his hands. :p

The fight was only 5 minutes and was very exhausting, i really enjoyed our fight! Thanks for that!

After training I had a small drink together with him and the rest of the group.
Sid is a nice person, not so prominent as most Dutch guys but also not shy.
We didn't get to talk that much... but there is still a lot of time ahead for us to do that.

Thanks for joining our event and know you are always welcome to train with us!

You can see that David is well trained in this.
The look in his eyes when about to grapple says it all!

He lead the group fight and won against (almost) every opponent he had in front of him, including me, of course, since I'm pretty novice at this.
He also likes to use gripping into submission a lot, something I have yet to prevent, so watch out buddy! ;)

Me and SirThanksalot fought a small round during our weekly MF meeting.

He has a bit of experience from an other amateur wrestling club so when our match started he looked very confident and determined to make me tap. He has good stamina and strength but after our match he admitted he could improve his technique and game. This only increases my respect to him as a fighter because he is fighting with the correct mindset.
Our fight seems to have resparked a fire in SirThanksalot and i look forward to train with him regularly in 2022.

Off the mats we didn't really talk, but i hope to get to know him better in the comming year.

Me and Wuduru fought yesterday at our weekly event.

He trained BJJ for a couple of years and it really shows in his game: he has a good defense and knows when to attack.

Combining this with the strength in his upper body and his overall stamina i found myself in a hard battle.

This is the kind of fight i love most: no playing down my game and fighting until we I fall on the ground completely exhausted.

Thank you for the fight man! And let me know when you want a rematch in Brugges.

I had been chatting with David for a couple of months when we decided to have a match. He was kind enough to come to my place.
He proved to be a very easy going and relaxed guy - I felt very comfortable.
Though I worried about the difference in weight beforehand I soon found out that David was up to it! He is a very skilled and efficient fighter who had no problem whatsoever with my massive body. We had a good time on the mats and afterwards - the meeting rekindled my desire for wrestling and meeting nice guys like him. I might even join his trainings - but first I need to get (back) in shape so that I can give him a hard time during our next match!

We did a couple of rounds taking sufficient time to catch our breath, get to know each other a bit and have a sip of water.

This day started very nice for me. I finally met David! We were talking for a long period, without having the chance to meet and wrestle. And we finally made it.
What can I say about David! David is a very good wrestler. I loved the fight with him. He has a very good body, he has a lots of stamina and oh boy he knows how to wrestle. He is well experienced, a completely technical wrestler, who respects the limits, but always wants to submit the opponent. Indeed, we wrestled about 1,5 hrs, not being able to make him submit. Yep, he is very very good and he gave me the best workout after so long.
Off the mats, he is a very intelligent guy, social and I enjoyed the time we spend together having lunch. Not to mention that he is very handsome guy.
Yep David is out there waiting all the wrestlers and of course this was just a start of future wrestling matches with me.
David be careful, I will come back!!!

Unfortunately for Wrestlergreek29, his plans to visit his hometown fell into the water. For me however, that was a good opportunity to challenge him for a match. 🤗

We just needed to find a place to fight. Luckily for me Herve1390 came with a solution and offered us a place to fight.

Wrestlergreek has a lot of fight in him, he is strong and has lots of stamina. Making you work for every submission and always comming back for more. We wrestled about 1,5 hrs, not taking a lot of breaks and exhausting each other. He managed to get on top of me a couple of times but from there he was a bit rusty in redeeming his advantage. Nevertheless he gave me a great workout.

After the fight we had a nice dinner and talk a little about our lives. Wrestlergreek29 is a chill and social man whom is fun to hang around.

Take the opportunity to fight him. I certainly hope to wrestle him many times and seeing him develop his game.

!05-12-2021!

Wooffman invited me to wrestle with him during his stay in Brussels. Not long before i arrived at his hotel room, we shuffled the table and sofa to the side to reveal a nice and big carpet to wrestle on.

Wooffman’s profile looks very promising and boy he did deliver on my expectations. First stating the obvious: he is very fit and has a well defined body. With his strength alone he can easily crush the average MF’er. So it was very pleasing for me to read the surprise on his face after our first round (when i still was able to catch him off guard 😈). After he tapped he praised me a lot, this shows how humble and relax this guy is. No machoism, just two people enjoying the competition and the game of BJJ.

After that Wooffman brought out the beast in him, making it much more difficult for me to control the game but at the same time it made him consume his energy very quickly. We ended having both one submission on our side. (Important note: Wooffman already undergoed a match a few hours before ours so extra points for him)

As this guy improves his game and discover his style, he will become a very strong opponent. I plan to keep up with him so that we can keep giving each other a good challenge when we do measure up. 💪🏻

Off the mats Wooffman made sure i felt comfortable all time, he is very kind and an open guy. We had some nice conversations about ourselves and I really enjoyed the time with him. So do take the opportunity to fight him!

I have the luck to meet DavidVdw today in mechelen. We like so much grappling sport that it was easy to organize something. We have the pleasure to practice on real judo place. Thanks to you David to organize that.

We roll 1h30 with good intensity. Lot of sweats, holds, fun. He is really strong, fast , skills. He know how play in good spirit and know his staff to make you work for good time. Know how control, make holds, escape from holds all what we like for good rounds. It's really great to share our passion of grappling with him. It's an evidence he really likes practice on mats. Amazing session. Can't wait play again and again.

After the session when we are tired we have good time in mechelen with good lunch, friendly discussions, great afternoon.

This week I finally had the opportunity to visit the [email protected] organized by by this great guy and tough fighter David. It is great to train and fight in a relaxed and safe atmosphere with a lot of very nice and dedicated fighters. After the warm up we did some technical training. The second half was reserved for the matches. My first 4 matches went quite well, so I had a bit of selfconfidence before my fight with David. He has an impressive physique with a great muscled upperbody. I thought ny extra weight would help me a bit, but boy was I wrong. This guy had a surplus of technique, strength and stamina and he put my big body in several helpless positions. He is a Master of the Armlock! Despite this major defeat it was a superb experience for me to take part of this event. It is a great initiative of David to organize this on a weekly base.

During the fight he also gave feedback and suggested good improvements on my technique.

This time, the situation was different, and I got a rematch to show him what I'm made off.
Result: a sweaty and tired Anakron ... but 0 submissions out of him. I was overpowered both technical and strength wise. The match itself was very enjoyable, Anakron will downplay and makes sure that you feel comfortable during the fight.

After the fight we went out for food and drinks and we spend a nice evening together with ludnica007. I really liked hanging out with these two guys. Thanks for having me and let's repeat it again sometime!

I had a splendid match with ludnica007 in Dusseldorf. He has been on the website for a few years but only recently started to engage actively with the meetfighters community. He has a positive and curious mindset, likes to experiment and he is a pleasant guy to be with in general.

On the mats he is bringing the same energy. He will come down on you with lots of energy and will give you a great workout. His profile says he likes to assume the jobber role but don't think he will let you win that easily! I'm positive that he will grow and learn more and so I'm already looking forward to measure up again after a couple of battles and new experiences.

Don't miss out on the chance of meeting up with Ludnica007 and help shape him into a great fighter!

Malgré la période chargée à laquelle Xbox etait confrontée au travail, il a eu la gentillesse de faire du temps pour notre combat. Rencontre lui s'est déroulée facilement et en douceur. Il a un bon endroit pour luter dans son appartement sur quelques matelas et nous nous sommes battus environ 1,5h , prendre assez de temps pour reprendre notre souffle apprès chaque tour. Il a encore un peu de techniques à apprendre mais il est définitivement un bon adversaire pour quiconque aime les combats avec un petit soupçon de compétition.

À coté des tapis, il est une personne amicale et chaleureuse et nous avons eu plusieurs conversations intéressantes.

Merci pour le combat ! Et on se verra bientôt!

Despite the busy period Xbox is facing at work, he was so kind to make some time for our fight. Meeting up with him went smooth and easy. He has a good place to host in his apartment. We wrestled on a couple of matrasses and fought about 1,5 hours taking breaks to catch up on our breaths. He still has a bit of techniques to learn but he's definitely a good adversary for anyone who likes fights with a small hint of competition.

Off the mats he's a friendly and warm person and we had some interesting conversations.

Thanks for the fight! And we'll see each other soon!

Wrestling wise he is still a little green behind his ears but with some training and coaching and with the necessary passion that i have witnessed, he will grow and become beter at it. I’m happy to spar with him again and to help him become stronger and better at it.

Many thanks for the great evening 😘

David m'a fait le plaisir et l'honneur de venir combattre chez moi, le rendez-vous s'était pris la veille et j'ai été content d'avoir trouvé ce moment là pour l'affronter.

Hors tapis c'est un garçon sympathique avec qui j'ai pu parfaire mon Anglais, très patient, un parfait invité souriant et agréable qui en plus a un visage d'ange.

Sur le tapis justement, il faut se méfier de ce visage d'ange qui cache un adversaire plus que redoutable, nos avons échangés de longues prises, essayant tant bien que mal de faire abandonner l'autre, malgré tout sa puissance m'a dévasté, si il parle de mes ciseaux meurtriers, que dire de ces cuisses qui m'ont cassé en deux, sans pitié mais avec respect il m'a broyé jusqu'à me faire abandonner, mais ces bras ne sont pas en reste non plus, si par malheur il passe derrière vous, priez pour qu'il ne vous fasse pas un étranglement, la seule solution pour s'en sortir est l'abandon.

J'ai grande hâte de pouvoir le revoir et combattre à nouveau, essayant de le faire abandonner plus de fois.

It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, the perfect moment for a fight!

As we are both eager fighters, setting up a match with this guy was very easy. Mehdi was the perfect host, making sure I felt comfortable and hydrated during the whole fight.

The fight itself was fun and sweaty and time flew by like nothing. We ended up rolling for about 3 hours holding each other in various holds. Make sure to avoid his killer scissor legs, they pack a hell of a lot of force and even made me tap.

Of the mats Mehdi is a gentle and kind man, straight forward and honest. At first sight he is a little closed off but as soon as the match begins and the ice melts he opens up.

Thanks for the match and untill next time ;)

Actions unfold in landscapes that are enjoyed in a spirit of cooperation and exchange. Tangles of bodies and fragments of vegetation form assemblages of a life in the wild.
That was an exhibition text I read today at Berlin Biennale. Sorry for that, but many things reminded me today of yesterdays outdoor matchday. What just proves we really had a perfect common experience.
I can't add much to his text - he was faster (as he is quite often in competition, too), just can confirm everything. In particular the 2 and the 9 hours. I enjoyed that time a lot - in the wild as well as back in the civilisation of restaurants and flagship stores.
He is a very likeable and educated guy who can hold a conversation just as well as he can hold an opponent on the ground... Great fighter. Great guy. New friend. Will be glad to compare our BJJ training progress regularly.

It was a sunny Saturday afternoon, the perfect moment for a fight!

Me and Kairoi decided to meet in Berlin, after all we both like the city a lot and i already made plans to visit there.
It was very easy to pick a day with him and we were in luck because we picked a sunny one. It was only logical to take the fight outside so we headed to Tiergarten and found a good place in the shades of a big tree. Plenty of space to roll!

I enjoyed the fight with Kairoi a lot, it was one of the more technical fights I had. The pace of the fight was perfect for strategical fighting, thinking about what the next move should be... a bit like chess. Kairoi’s stamina is high, we wrestled about 2 hours with 2 breaks for some water. Afterwards we were recovering from the fight, laying down and enjoying the summers breeze over our bodies.

After the fight we spend the rest of the day getting to know each other over shopping and food. In no time 9 hours flew by.

Fully recommend and looking forward meeting him in the future to measuring up our BJJ experience and spending some additional time.

Highly recommended for all levels of fighters.
The time on the mats with him felt like a long and exhausting grappling sparring session. Both of us dripping in sweat.

After reading it and considering all good recommendations he had, I decided to first build up some experience on my own.

And boy what a nice opponent he is to fight! He is very strong, has a well build body, and displays good technique!
Bamm-bamm downplayed to my level, making It possible for me to give my A-game in a safe way. But rest assured the fight was not a close match.

We ended up having some nice, sweaty and exhausting matches separated by small breaks with some food, drinks and interesting discussions. Bamm-bamm’s style of communication is very welcoming and engaging, making you feel at home in no time.

I had a great first impression, and I’m confident we‘ll make more of them as we grow as a BJJ fighters! I wonder... will i ever be able to genuinely make him tap? 😈

DavidVdw is a real cute guy. We met with noby and some other fighters together to have a longer session. We were first on the mat so our motivation was very high. He is my weight class and was a quite strong opponent, while I started quite relaxed he easily got the mount, and made a technically perfect Franchesa submission. Afterwards he told me that he just started BJJ, so there is more to come! I think in a few month he will be able to applay a lot of techniques and defense will get harder.

I hope to meet him again, to see the progress and have fun again!

DvidVdw is a very cute guy and in real he looks even better than on his pictures. I was really surprised because of his good defence. First I thought it takes not much time to get him in a submission hold because I have much more weight but he is a crazy quick guy with good intuition for defence work. His attacks are limited to a few techniques but if he continue to go to a club I think he will get very good soon and hard to beat.
Of the mats he is an easy going guy so he has my full recommendations.
I hope we will meet on the mats again 🙂

Noby is a total beast on the mats. He is by far the strongest fighter I have met on meet fighters, but he did tap one time during our fight… with the help of 2 other people of course … after 15 minutes of hard work on our side. It’s just unbelievable how someone can be this strong!
Also had some roles on my own with him, he happily downplays for you but will build up the intensity until you finally get what is written in the stars: you will submit and tap. All in a safe way, but rest assure he will push your limits.
Toby is a great host, very charismatic with twinkling eyes and I also enjoyed the small talk that we had after our match.

This guy is just amazing! A very cute and nice guy off the mats and a true warrior and fighter on the mats. He can really exhaust someone and I had to put anything I have in the match not to tap in his holds. Especially considering his size, he is very strong and a real pleasure to wrestle him. I really have to enjoy my narrow victory as long as I can though because he has just joined a fighting club and will soon dominate me completely for sure. I would wrestle him at any time, you should do the same :)

Quadi is such a witty guy. Very easy to talk to, very kind and funny… and… also very easy to underestimate! Really guys, you will enjoy his company and also his fighting skills!
My god, what a stamina does this guy have. My tactic of the fight: tire him out before going for the tap. I managed to get on control for most part, keeping my weight on his body and his arms and making him struggle as much as I could. I could hear the heavy breathing after a while, for most opponents this means they are getting tired, but quadi1 is simply not your normal opponent. He is easily the most resilient fighter I have encountered here on MF. After a fair amount of making him struggle, I decided to chance technique, lost my mount, got in a bad position and couldn’t resist Quadi1’s choke… in a single move he had me checkmate.
So definitely meet and fight this guy if you have the chance!

Amateur Fighter and me have exchanged a small amount of messages but we hadn’t set up a date for a fight because it didn’t seem that feasible for distance-wise. So it was a nice surprise to see him show up at this brawl a bit closer to my place.
He’s strong and fights in a controlled and technical way. It becomes clearer for me that ground fighting is such a technical sport. And as a result the difference in experience and weight meant he was dominating the game. Positive side: I have an extra goal on my list now – train and become better, faster and stronger in order to give Amateur fighter a harder fight!

In the brief moments we had together off the mats, Amateur fighter appeared to me as a person with positive mindset and someone who is eager to make other people shine and become their best. Very likable indeed!

We started with some practice about breaking a fall, I value these kinds of learning moments so thanks for taking some time to educate me personally! After the training moment we engaged in a small ground fight and even though Judoka 90's main experience is in standup fighting, he was more than proficient to control the game.

A warrior disguised as an angel, that’s how to describe DavidVdw in a nutshell.
As described by many here before, setting up an match with D is very easy.
His eager to wrestle is immense.
Based on his recommendations I expected to receive a young, determined, quick
and technical fighter which I hoped to counter with a superior strength.
Well I was wrong, I still cannot believe how much power D has in his lean body.
Still me being slightly stronger, he made me tap out round after round after round. Although
I sometimes thought to be close to make him tap out, he didn’t, quite frustrating for me.
He always managed to escape from my holds and turn the roles with a technique he had
studied on and few moments later victory was his.
I could only take little proud seeing his heart pounding in his head and his t-shirt soaked in sweat.
Thank you D for having come to my place and for the heavy workout and enjoyable afternoon.
Hope to see you soon again.
As a conclusion : I recommend DavidVdw 100 %, don’t miss the opportunity to meet him.

And boy he did commit on my expectation. He’s a brute on the mats, with lots of strength in his upper body and arms.
After the first few rounds my hart was pounding in my head but we kept going on till we both were soaked in sweat and drained from energy. With a bit of technique he would have dominated the whole match!

Off the mats you can expect a gentleman and a good host: providing drinks, a nice wrestling area and nice small talk. I especially enjoyed our conversations whilst walking in the fields of the flemish Ardennes.

Man! That was a hard fight, Dirka definitely is a mean heel and a real brute in his fight. We definitely gave each other a nice workout but I was not a real match against his strength. I didn’t manage to keep out of his scissors and i did not feel in control during our match. Dirka enjoyed my struggling and attempts to counteract his holds a bit too much, I would have loved to swipe away that smiling and proud face of him. 😛

Dirka respects his opponent but will push his opponents limits, fighting him will result in a hard and rough and fun fight.

DavidVdw and I finally met after we have had a continues exchange of messages here on meetfighters for some weeks.

As I had a weekend trip to Cologne, we decided to meet on Saturday, and I took the 2h-way from Cologne to Belgium to meet DavidVdw. He was so pleasant and organized a room in the sportshall, which is a perfect place for a fight.

After a short warming up, we started a Grappling match. DavidVdw has strong arms and strong legs, and he knows a lot of holds and good moves. So it was not surprising, that he was able to tap me out in different kind of positions. In sum we fought nearly 2 hours, very sweaty and safe to every minute.

As I have never been to this region of Belgium yet, we went to Mechelen after our fight, and DavidVdw gave me a guided tour through the city.

It was one of those rainy Saturdays: what else to do on such a day besides wrestling?

And so me and StefanM decided to measure up with each other after a bit of chatting. StefanM put more than enough effort to come and fight me, spending 7 hr’s in the car to get to the big and well known city of Boortmeerbeek.

We met up around noon at the sporthall, did a small warming up and than started our fight. StephanM gave me a very good workout, he is a swimmer thus has lots of stamina: he kept on coming for more rounds of submission and completely drained my energy in those two hours of brawling. I enjoyed our fight a lot and with a bit of practice and regular fighting he will become a difficult opponent.

Next we took a quick shower and afterwards i showed him around in the city of Mechelen. Of the mats StefanM is a friendly guy, analytical and smart, knows some fun facts about beer (especially the cologne beers which he likes a lot) . Overall he’s a fun person to hang out with.

Thanks again for the nice Saturday and getting my lazy ass out of the sofa!

Even when I messed up an was running late, we had our fight. And boy it was a hard fight. That guy is strong! And also he picks up technic very quick. Even my weight advantage didn't help. He doesn't quit easiely and realy made me work. So we had very long rounds and ended up even. Hope we will do some more rounds some other time. Off the mates he is a great guy as well. I had a really good time and I am glade even with my delay we made his shedule. Hm but we could have fought longer if I hadn't messed up. Damed. So really looking forward for more fights to come . And if anyone visiting brussels, you should denenitly meet him!

Again another fun, exhausting and sweaty fight. It was very easy to set up a fight with TomTom. He’s willing to travel a bit and is flexible on his time scheme .He is a laid back fighter and will make sure the match is pleasant for both parties.

On our first two rounds i managed to pull of some tricks and make him tap. But then TomTom did honor to his recommendations here on MF: he kept fighting with lots of energy while i was slowly getting lethargic. He forced me into defense and the few times i managed to flip the tables he swiftly regained the upper hand
and eventually was able to make me tap out a couple of times.

Make sure you contact him when you are in his neighborhood, i’ll do the same since i want a rematch in a couple of months!

Well, what shall I say, what not all the other opponents have already written before. Indeed he's a little beast on the mat :-), ambitious, technically skilled, never giving up. We had some long fights, but I had no chance against him today. Revenge will follow ;-). Outside the mat a very friendly, pleasant and interesting conversationial partner. So, really highly recommended! Do not miss him, if you want a defeat :-).

I had some spare time when i was visiting Cologne and it turned out to be a wonderfull evening with wrestlercgn.

Seting up a match with wrestlercgn was extremely easy, he’s reliable and makes you feel very welcome in his house and his nicely matted room.

This guy is a very strong opponent, i had to work hard to get him to submit and my arms are still soaring from our fight. because of this struggle i experienced, this is one of the most fulfilling fights i had here on MeetFighters and it made me smile the whole way back to Belgium.

Off the mats wrestlercgn is a real gentleman, he makes sure you feel treated good and is a nice man to talk to.

Looking forward to our next match!

Wat a grappler !

I met David 2 weeks ago and it has been one of my impressive match in life.
David is a wonderful grappler. 2 hours in the best conditions you can imagine : a huge matroom just for him and me.
it has been difficult to determine who was the best of us. For each bout, the result wasn't predictable and we won each of us several bouts.
It was as intense as i can like it and i think we both enjoyed it a lot until almost total exhaustion.

During lunch i also had the opportunity to discuss with a very sensitive young man, he must be great to be friend with.
i only regretted that all this was just a bit too short : would have fought and discussed for hours.

Don't miss him if you have any opportunity to meet David. One of the most recommendable wrestlers of meetfighters.

See you soon Boy !

I enjoyed a very nice encounter with Yann from 2thoughwrestlers_in_1_team.
The fight was very balanced and we made each other tap multiple times.

although i could see a pattern in our fights: i would win the first few rounds, stretching my force a little until i got tired and on that moment Yann would takeover the upper hand.
So even though we made each other tap more or less the same amount, i’d rate him the stronger oponent.

And as usual: after the fight we went for a drink and some simple food, i enjoyed the conversations i had with Yann. He is openhearted and Is not afraid of share some of his life experiences. I’d be happy to pay him a visit in Paris to get a rematch someday!

DavidVdw is recommended by Berlin

I have really a great time fighting with David. Though I was the Gloiath in that fight Davis always came back after every tap, again and again. Giving us chance to recover in between. Though due to weight difference he had to work much harder than me he wouldn’t get tired easily. So the fight turned out to be very exhausting, sweaty and demanding. It was always competitive with both of us giving everything, willing to win. The applause after our first fight was clearly dedicated to him as he was the smaller guy and still never gave up.
Besides the mat we also had a great time together.
I clearly recommend David to all who want to fight competitive.

Berlin is recommended by DavidVdw

Berlin and i actually know each other before i joined meetfighters.

He’s a cool guy who likes a rough game with the right amount of aggression but in a sane way. He’s not the most technical but he compensates this with his muscled and strong body. Having said that, he’s not for the weak hearted.

In my case you also have the weight difference which comes in play... so for me it’s always a massive workout fighting Berlin.

This year i got the chance to meet up with him again and we actually fought twice. The first time i was jobbing in a public area, with a nice applause from the crowd in the end (apparently people like to see me struggle) and the second time we wrestled a bit more private.

He’s my first opponent and the one who showed me this small community here on meetfighters. I’ve grown very fond of the wrestling community over the past 9 months. And it’s providing me with a much needed relief of daily live and work related stress.

So a big thank you for Berlin and obviously I recommend you 100%!

I met David this morning, after some exchange of messages and it was all what I've expected it to be.
He's very easy to communicate with, and extremely nice to talk to.
As a fighter he has a tremendous upper body strength which is very hard to submit and a very good technic for a newbie (he still is). It was a hard long fight and I wish I could have met him more often.
Don't even think about passing on this one, if you have the chance.

I met Damon during my trip to Berlin.
With him having the same weight as me, i already knew this match was going to be very interesting.

Damon did not make it easy on me and even had me on the verge of tapping at some moments. For his weight, he is a strong opponent. Especially in his legs.

Off the mats Damon is friendly, loving, creative and very passionate about his work.

He is also a real foodie.
Lucky me... we planned to eat something together and now i know a couple of places for nice foods.

Thanks again for the lovely start of the day and lets meet up again in the future.

Danny and me met each other at a wrestling weekend together with 4 others.

We wrestled each other on Saturday on the mats in the sporthal and had two rounds at each other. Danny is a strong wrestler and will try to get on top of you as fast as he can. Once there, he’ll makes sure he stays on top and make you tap.

First round was his, second one was mine... I admit your energy might have been drained from the other fights but dany: we need to settle this fight!

Of the mats: Dany is a friendly and social guy with for me a hint of introversion. I especially liked the evening of “code names” where every one in the group started to opened up to each other.

He’ll surely hear from me when i need to be in Germany for work.

Took a while to meet because of his injury but it was worth it. Bit shy at first but as soon we got to the mats, we were in one of the better battles I ever had. He has a great balance and strong body . It was hard to get the upperhand and it was a battle of stamina. Given time, he will be unstoppable because he doesn't lack in focus and determination.

He had a very nice personality. Afterwards we had a great afternoon at a lake together. Was great to catch up and happy to see his progress in future matches. Must-meet when he is around.

Battlefox is one of the first people welcoming me to this community. When he first showed intrest in a fight with me, i told him i wanted to have a bit more experience before fighting him. And... he ended up being my 17th opponent.

It was a good decision to wait a little before meeting up with him. Battlefox is a skilled opponent, always on the lookout for that opening the other person leaves and than... snap ... he has you in a lock you can‘t escape. He knows exactly what he is doing and he is a controlled fighter.

I also enjoyed the brief moments where i made him tap. Not sure if he was downplaying, but still i take pride in those moments.

After the fight we enjoyed the sun and relaxed at a nearby lake. All matches should have a cherry Like that on top. 🍒 😜

David is young and strong fighter. We met during my short visit in Antwerp. Our meeting place was established at the main hall of the monumental railway station of Antwerp where I found a nice and friendly boy who I was immediately at ease with. Then we went to our fightplace. Even if the space to fight wasn't so large, our match was a great success. David is a lean, athletic, strong and fast fighter and he knows several techniques and movements. His strenght and athletic freshness put me in trouble in our competive match. I love this kind of competition and this is the reason why I liked fighting David. Out of fight, he is a brilliant and cultivated guy who it was a real pleasure having a long conversation with on different topics. Really top recommended. To next match, thank you much David!

Count your blessings when you get to meet David.
He arranged a great setting for our match; probably the best place to have a good roll in a local sportscentre.
David, although a novice, has everything a wrestler should have: a good fighting spirit. Quick, lean, eager to learn and more then willing to exchange techniques. What he lacks in experience (for now, but that won't last long) he makes up with speed and determination. Safe and sane being the credo of our match I had a great time wrestling this guy.
Would I meet him again in the future? No doubt about it! In fact I look forward to our next encounter.
In between rounds and after the match it was a joy to talk to this intelligent young man with a myriade of interests.

He give and took a bit during our fight, being stronger, havier and being trained at fighting i had to try fighting him with more speed and endurance.
And it payed off a couple of times.

I had the pleasure to host this fine lad in my appartment. I'm not saying he has allready aquired several good techniques, nor shall I say here he has a good stamina, you'll neither hear me say he is much stronger than the cute man he looks like. I'm just wondering who teached him in the past few days and still wondering why I was immovable at several moments. That said. This fine man has a great will to learn, I hardly could teach him because he knew more than I do, and I should practice more. But we had some nice rounds and it was a verry nice encounter. He is determined to learn, to improve his skills. Next time I'll show him what I'm made off (must be some fluffy gingerbread filling and teddybearsplush).
