Finally it was my turn to meet Grakoda! After lots of chatting and banter, I was really looking forward to out match. Easy to arrange, and precise.
We had a really good match. He's strong and comes at you without warning, and is determined with it. Once he gets you pinned, you can feel it! He's built very well, with huge strong legs, and a strong upper body. His legs are impressively strong. Loved being caught in them... Watch out!
Grakoda is handsome, reliable, safe and a veery charming and funny man. I definitely recommend everyone to meet him should you get the chance!

After years of chatting, we finally ended up in the same place at the same time. GV was easy to set up a match with, but not so easy to wrestle. He, of course, has a great athletic body that provides both stamina and strength (and as obvious thick legs, especially for someone his size). But he’s also super smart (as he instantly figured out his Rubik’s cube during our travel back) and is constantly thinking about his next strategic move. Maybe it was his charming smile or warm demeanor, but I underestimated him to my detriment. Even though he managed to get more taps, I still managed to get a few during his weaker moments. I had so much fun with GV and hope it isn’t the last. Asking with many others, I highly recommend and await the next encounter.
This guy has huge legs and arms, thankfully I had the advantage of longer limbs!
He kindly organised the matroom and we spent several hours wrestling and a bit of time chatting too as he is a very engaging guy.
Spoke to grakoda before.. Recognised him and got in touch as he was in Cardiff.. Easy to arrange.. Really nice guy.. Met at a hotel.. As his pictures show, broad solid build, easy to talk to and friendly. Tried out some holds to start with, he's a strong guy, I was very keen to see the power in his legs as these have been mentioned by past opponents, they didn't disappoint.. Upper body is also strong, with thick arms. Didn't get subs out of me, but it's rare that anyone does. Showed him some new holds and techniques and tried them out. Didn't have much space to do anything overly competitive, but I would definitely like to try something competitive in the future. An ideal guy to wrestle, if you get a chance to meet him make sure you do, don't mess him about, he's one of the good guys. It was a pleasure.
Met MMR for a casual meet during my short stay in Cardiff. He was nice to drive in to meet. We had a nice little tussle - trading holds and seeing whose legs were stronger. Nice to meet someone my height for a change! He’s very strong (legs and arms!), well-built, and knowledgeable. Easy to get along. Recommend!

Met Grakoda for the first time and he was easy to be with better still we had a good time on the mats. He is very strong and determined but that didn't get in the way of us having fun. I hope i meet him again!!
Had a great experience with Gioroma80. He can be quite dominating with his vice grips, strength, and grappling skills. He is strong, intense, and very kind. Enjoyed his mat set up and easy going demeanor. Highest of recommendations and i hope it isn’t the last. Highly recommend.
Grakoda is recommended by Bowtome152
Very fun, strong wrestler who knows his moves and when he gets one on you, your not getting out of it. I'm expecting a rematch real soon I highly recommend him
Grakoda is recommended by babyface180
Well, first of all Grakoda is a very cool guy and he was patient enough to "show me the ropes", which made him a very good opponent for my first time. Yeah, he beat me down pretty good LOL. But, I learned a lot of moves! His legs are strong as heck so be very careful! I look forward to a rematch!

Met BF today and introduced him to the community. He was pleasant, friendly... and already had a hot singlet to wear. While he is very new skill-wise, once he gets his bearings, he will likely be very tough. He improved a lot during our match that lasted a few hours. Needless to say, I had a blast and look forward to doing it again and again. Highly recommend.
There is a large element of truth to the saying good things come in slightly smaller packages! While I may have had a little height and weights advantages over Grakoda, this guy is a powerhouse! He met me at the door with a huge lifted bear hug! I have met up with some big guys around my size, found this a challenge for some reason!! And his Bearhug Has some true power In it!
I most definitely enjoyed the strength of this big man oh and truly enjoyed his company as well. Even though I was able to squeeze him into a couple of submissions, considering the fun I had with this fella I toss the winter him! Highest recommendations
And hopefully there will be a round two, three, and four. 😉
There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. Swenrique is kind, personable, and funny until he decides to exert some of his massive frame on you - then he's debilitatingly strong and powerful. His torso is so massive, I couldn't get my legs around it, so I couldn't put up much of a fight. I am glad we were able to meet and I'm hopeful it won't be the last.
Grakoda is recommended by joewrestler
Had a great time with this guy. Super charming and sweet with a side of handsome and scruffy — it’ll do you well not to get distracted by his pleasant demeanor — those legs will crush you, and he knows how to control you. Highly recommended. Get with him if he is in your area. Looking forward to round two :).

Had a meet up with JW today... and it was well worth the weight. As others mentioned, friendly, easy to communicate, and not easy to submit. He was giving up significant weight, but he has the strength of someone much larger. He got my legs caught up a few times, including one sub - which others (almost twice his size) haven’t been able to do. Friendly, fun, tough, handsome, and highly recommended.
I was too happy to meet Grakoda! It has been a long time since we first met and chatted online and over-the-phone. Finally got the chance to meet up with him and I too was not disappointed! We had an awesome time wrestling for good while.
Grakoda is very strong and did not make it easy for me. I highly recommend him because he is a great competitor, conversationalist and tons of fun!
After chatting for what seems like forever - we met and I was not disappointed. He is strong, flexible, and real quick. And “smaller” now (his words, not mine), he’s still thick and a beast. More importantly he’s funny, easy to schedule with, a great communicator, and cool. Look forward to meeting up for more in the future. Highly recommend.
A fantastic time with a jovial guy. He communicates well and it is a bit shy until it’s time to attack. The dude has heart and just kept going no matter what he got for doing so. 😏
We met up in the morning and went at it for around 2 hours. He honestly would have kept going if we didn’t have places to be.
Stamina on fleek.
Glad we got to meet and talk and roll a bit before he had to head home and whenever he wants another armbar or 10, he’s welcome to my home anytime.
Rated “R” for recommended. 7/7
Edit: I was not wearing the onesie while Wrestling. 😂
So I can’t remember exactly the score... but it was close. Ish. By close I mean... not at all. He’s humbley strong, skilled, calm, ... and funny. Watch out - his legs are never ending, so is his taunting. :) Next time it will be different! (Haha) *I got beat by a man in a onesie. Highly recommend and looking for round 2.

Met Grakoda today in a small 3 guys group meet at grove park . What an amazing match it was . He’s very strong and very resistant and his legs can easily crush concrete . Never seen a guy squeezing a body scissors so hard ! Outside the ring he’s a brilliant guy and will sure enjoy wrestling him again ! Fully recommended !

Just met BW at Grove Park. He has a great physique with broad shoulders, traps, chest, and quads. His physique, skill, size, and competitive edge makes him quite dominating. Even against two guys at one point. I’ve never had a man pick me up and throw me before... but now I have. He was easy to schedule and I enjoyed the conversation during and after the match too. Glad we met. Hopefully not the last.

Had great time to wrestle Grakoda! He is great friendly wrestler! Strong! Fun! We did submission back and forth! Forward for a rematch with him!

Not much to say that hasn’t already been said: Very friendly guy, who is adaptable, strong, skilled, funny, and has a mean streak. Clearly experienced and has a unique type of match. Loved it and learned new things! Of course highly recommend!
Grakoda is recommended by Wrestlecub
Had a fun match with Grakoda. He is strong and can take a lot of punishment! We were pretty limited in space as it was a hotel match but we still had a great time!
Hope to get this guy on mats or in a ring for round 2 sometime soon!
Wrestlecub is recommended by Grakoda
Ahh not much to say about WC that hasn’t already been said, but I will anyway. He has a huge build: chest, back, arms, quads. All of them tapped me out. At one pint, I literally tapped out from being smothered in his chest. He has strength, stamina, and great skill. Twisted me in all kinds of ways.
I tried... but it’s hard to even get my arms and legs around him because of his barrel of a torso. He’s a great teacher, incredibly nice and cool guy when just chatting ... highly recommend. Can’t wait for future matches.
Grakoda took me by surprise as I was prepared for his skill level. He was very strong, skilled and witty.
Definitely a fun match and look forward to round II.
If you get the chance to wrestle him you won’t be disappointed.
After chatting for a while, CRX and I finally got to meet with a friend. It was well worth the wait! He is incredibly fit, agile, and skilled (even if he denies this). He was methodical in his ability to trap your head, arms, or anything else to immobilize you. He definitely won his time, but I look forward to round 2 to try and redeem myself. Incredibly pleasant and nice. Highly recommend.
Had a good time meeting up with Grakoda. We had a skilled, competitive match that ended in a draw. He has extremely strong legs and knows how to use them. I recommend him to anyone!
Mich and I had a fun time. He was much stronger than I anticipated with some pretty good skill. He was extremely difficult to submit without each one of us coming out on top. His long legs are not easy to escape from. A great time. Highly recommend.
Nice, reliable and strong guy. He is highly recommended!

Had a last minute match with Grakoda. A solid wrestler with a low center of gravity definitely fun to wrestle. I appreciated his inviting me to join him and his bud at wrestlefest. Hopefully we can get together for another match.

I had a lot of fun wrestling this guy. really easy to communicate with and a strong guy. Would definitely wrestle him again. He has very strong legs which I enjoyed.

To add to the many reviews, the man is a beast. He unfortunately knows it too.. with his grin and laughs. He has the stamina, skill, and strength to destroy me and another guy round robin style. There were a few times I thought I had him.. but to no avail. If you can help it, don't get near his long, muscular, and wily legs. Deadly. Overall I appreciate him being a great host and fun match. Definitely recommend. Just don't get your hopes up.

After chatting for a little while, our schedules finally allowed for a match! Grakida definitely has alot of determination! I had a great workout and looking firward to a rematch! He is a nice guy and I recommend him to anyone who has the chance to meeed and wrestle him!
Awesome match with G! After discussing rules and what we both enjoy, a match was on! Played heel but be careful with this guys bear hugs, powerful and can easily crush you! And also when he's on top of you, make sure you can counter that otherwise you'll end up tapping! Very sociable guy and smart too! Make sure to grab the opportunity to have a match with this guy! Amazing match man!
I had a great time with BB. After chatting for a while and getting on the same page we were able to meet for a nice match. He likes being heel and with his biceps, firearms, and chest - it's not hard. It was fun and hot being manhandled by this well-built opponent. Be careful, if his arms wrap around you, there is no escaping... and it's lights out from there. He was safe, sane, hospitable, and a nice guy outside of the match as well. Highly recommend.
The meet with Grakoda proved to be fun challenging. He is a determined and energetic wrestler. He learns quickly and always willing. Off the mat he is very easy to get along with and so I recommend him.
Simply put, the man is a beast. What is frustrating - it seems to take little effort in being dominating. There was a pretty big height difference and it was extremely hot - but I had a lot of fun with legin. My shoulders are a little sore today - and I'm pretty sure it's from he schoolboy pin I was forced in to end the match. Otherwise smartans friendly guy. Highly recommend.
Quite surprised how good this guy was, strong agile and had a good level of skill. Plus I forgot to add has impressive scissors. Meeting Grakoda was satisfying, he's keen, reliable and has a positive attitude, not to mention great sense of humour. Would I meet him again? Def would as he comes recommended. Thanks Grakoda.
Not sure where to start with this stud. Maybe with his picturesque physique in a speedo? Maybe with his extremely talented skill? Maybe with his cult-like following? Or maybe with his hella warm personality and conversation?
It was a great experience to try and do battle with him. It was with a group in a steaming space ... but so fun. He definitely had skill, speed, and strength over me. I made him tap a few but I think he probably was going easy.
Good luck trying to escape once he has you in his clutches. Brilliant guy.

Met up with Gradoka in South London. Very hot day but 4 of us had a great wrestle. Gradoka is a great guy, keen and friendly. Much stronger than he looks and keen to get stuck in. We had a few 1 on 1 battles and he worked hard and will be awesome when he picks up some more moves. Looking forward to testing him again when he's next over!
SPWrestler is recommended by Grakoda
SP was so gracious in coordinating an awesome bout - So friendly and knowledgeable. He has great training and seemed to always know where to land, tuck, hold, or turn. He was a great at teaching and encouraging and even better at making me tap. He's strong, wears his gear well, and all around nice guy. Can't wait for the next bout.
Grakoda is recommended by elephant8859
It was such a pleasure to meet Grakoda.
He had great wrestling skill, strength, and knowledge of my weaknesses to defeat me. Even tho I over muscled him, it didn't work well against him. He could always quickly get around and find a hold to limit my strength. Overall, it was just a ton of fun to wrestle him.
However, off the mats, he gave me the best hospitality possible. I wish I could live in MI and see him around every day. It was definitely worth travelling.
elephant8859 is recommended by Grakoda
Elephant and I connected a few months back and have been friends since. Besides being funny and fun - he's stacked. He has a big barrel of a chest, which is, sensitive ;) The man doesn't skip leg day either. He fills out his posing trunks well and unfortunately too well for his own good. Couldn't ask for a cooler person.
He's strong.. but the bigger they are, the harder they fall. I've heard him submit multiple times now - you should try too.
