Marcwrestler is recommended by Gator696
Marcwrestler is a patient coach happy to share his experiences from previous matches. What pins and subs he knows, and how he likes to try and get out of them. He was full of energy as I was the second guy he had wrestled that day, and was willing to meet late at night. Hope he plans more trips down to Florida as he was very friendly and professional.
DomDeMarco is recommended by Gator696
Though we only met for a short time, it was instructional. Learned more about promission wrestling, and while it wasn't for me, could certainly see DomDeMarco being a good teacher for those who are interested in that style. He is also working on making a wrestling room. I imagine he is going to be popular in the Central Florida promission wrestling scene!
Nov 18. It always blows my mind when a guy will drive 100 miles to meet for a match but this guy did. A submission training session and several rounds of a match ensued. Although a lack of experience my young apprentice was strong and very keen to learn. An enjoyable session all round.
Mark is a great guy to wrestle. He was happy to coach me through some of the basics and discuss some of the strategies of when to apply them (on a bigger guy vs smaller guy). He also has some 'golden rules' that he likes to follow for wrestling guys on here; like how to do a safe headlock vs a competitive headlock.
Strongly recommend meeting up with him, especially if you don't have too much experience. Hes an excellent coach and is happy to share his experience.
Don't let Gator696 fool you he is a little inexperienced but plenty strong. I honestly think if we went several round he would win more than he thinks. Great guy and shows up when he says he would.
Robrslr is an excellent coach. We went over basics doing short 5 minute matches after each. We’d talk about the pros and cons of certain sub or pin moves. He was even kind enough to loan me a singlet and let me shower at his so that I didn’t have to drive back to Gainesville dripping sweat!
Hopefully many more practice and teaching matches before I’ll be an actual opponent!
