NYleanmuscle is recommended by SubmissionGrapple
This guy and I have locked horns on a few occasions...he's buffer nearly every frickin' time I see him. Such a great guy, respectful, smart, worldly, tough, with the added benefit of knowing literally the best restaurants from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine. Not enough superlatives...make an excuse to take this guy on. And thank me later.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by sfflexer
Very very strong guy, he knows how to take control and move and is ripped but is even stronger than he looks , been a long time but want a rematch
sfflexer is recommended by NYleanmuscle
It has been a long time since our last match where we perspired for hours wrestling in the SF heat (yes, it was a hot night in SF), hard to believe but true. Tough wrestler, loves it all, arm wrestling, trash talking, good struggle, mixes it up well. Hope we have our way overdue rematch soon!
NYleanmuscle is recommended by SFFight
Skilled and strong grappler (even though, as he says, he is not formally trained). Submitted me repeatedly, but still a great time. Very safe and sane, while he was dominating. Even spent some time showing me how to get my one tap out of him. Easy to schedule, and great communication. A great guy on and off the mats, and yet another high quality guy that makes this site so awesome.
SFFight is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Took awhile.....a few years actually to finally meet. Strong and muscular build.....not a trained wrestler but willing to go the distance and wants to learn. I showed him a few holds but I'm not formally trained so I know my limitations as a coach. Good man......easy to communicate with.....keeps his "end of the bargain" and a fun wrestle too!!! Loves to wrestle and shows it......
NYleanmuscle is recommended by jmm2121
Had a great time meeting up with NYleanmuscle. He's in fantastic shape and has a really nice personality as well. He went easy on me, given my limited experience. Learned a lot and enjoyed the time spent on the mat with him. Thanks and definitely recommended!
jmm2121 is recommended by NYleanmuscle
JMM2121 is a newbie.....looking to gain experience. He is a good guy, developing more muscle and strength....loves to work up a sweat. Great host and setup for a sane match. Easy to communicate with and willing to learn and have fun wrestling. Good man. What else can you ask for??
NYleanmuscle is recommended by boston kid
Met NYleanmuscle today and had a blast. He was so sociable and friendly and interesting that we spent a lot of time just talking which was super enjoyable ! Then on to the mat where he applied some great holds to me. He’s a very safe strong and skilful man and I had a grand time. Hope he returns to London soon so we can have a longer session !
boston kid is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Not much time but worth the visit. Perhaps the nicest apt I've visited yet in my wrestling history. After some chatting, we know many old time Bulldog wrestlers.....we got down to some old time wrestling. He is a flexible and strong wrestler who can take plenty of punishment. Safe and good fun. A pleasure to meet you and think about that wrestling party idea 😉
NYleanmuscle is recommended by murphmuscle
Man, that was hot. Thanks for a fun sweaty affair. Yeah it took a while, but we’ll worth the wait. 😉
murphmuscle is recommended by NYleanmuscle
After several attempts, we finally met up for our match. Though space and time was limited, we made the best of it under these conditions. Tough, in shape, trash talking Irishman kept the action moving to a worthy sweat fest. Great guy....easy to communicate with and worth the effort to meet. Glad we finally connected after all these years.
Luxxor is recommended by NYleanmuscle
First off, it was pleasure to be this fellow wrestler's 100th opponent (at least as far as we know). We thought about not writing recommendations for each other since it might be overkill (obviously he kept to that suggestion 🤔). He is everything described by my fellow wrestlers. Though not trained, he has the instinct for keeping you honest in a match. I am feeling the match as I write:) Great shape, tough, sane, reliable, fun..... Thanks again for finding the time to roll.......I do hope we connect again.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Wrestlg
Met up with this guy out in queens!
He was Built!
I was a little intimidated physically!
We had a FUN back and forth match!
Great host, and I wanted to go at it again. But we had lost touch!
Hopefully back in touch again in person soon!
Wrestlg is recommended by NYleanmuscle
An "old timer" from the early years:)
He knows his stuff....(freestyle, submission, pro, promission.....). Strong as heck and will make the match fun, safe and sweaty for as long as you want. Easy to communicate with and a good guy to wrestle. We lost touch over the years, but glad to see he is still beating others from his profile ;)
NYleanmuscle is recommended by fitspeedo
He's a guy in super great shape. For every minute I was on top and in control he turned the tables on me and spent the same amount of time punishing me with his strong arms and legs. He's an intuitive wrestler and knew how to reposition and lock me up so that he could have his way with me! Damn! Very nice, polite, and reliable too. Definitely connect with him if you love sub.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by vanarmbar
Great guy on and off the mats - respectful, fun with a great lean body too :)
NYleanmuscle is recommended by FitScot
Around 6 years ago NYleanmuscle and I wrestled and I still haven't forgotten it. Would be up for another session with this man in an instant. He knows his stuff, and is great company off the mats. Hit him up.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by EastSider
Had a great time wrestling today.
First, he has a great setup-a real mat, and space.
Second, he's really strong and in great shape, and very intense (in a good way); he just keeps coming at you. We wrestled for an hour; I was kind of feeling all of the leg scissors and the like but he looked as though he could have kept going for hours more.
Third, easy to set up a match with and coordinating was a cinch.
Fourth, very gracious host- courteous, polite and friendly.
Definitely up for a rematch- I just need to practice escapes from some of those holds so that next time I'm the one doing the pinning more than he is.
EastSider is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Well, I'm glad I followed up with this wrestler after my surgery. He loves to wrestle!! We enjoyed some "football" and a good ground game of wrestling. Though he is more into freestyle, he will work with your style to make it fun and competitive. Easy to communicate and set up a match. In shape and a real good guy. Hope to continue these "two sports" meets!
NYleanmuscle is recommended by sparkytbg
I had a fun roll with N.Y. lean muscle. He is quite strong and aggressive. If he gets you in a hold not easy to get out of.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by ready2fight
Definitely lived up to his well-deserved reputation. He is strong and technical in his ability and was easy to plan a match with and has a great setup for NYC. Always pleasant to converse with during our time together which I wish could have been even longer. Overall, just a really good and solid guy who everyone should be lucky enough to grapple with on the mats.
ready2fight is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Being my first match after the knee surgery, I salute this guy for being understanding and not trying to get me into leg holds and leg locks.....respectful wrestler.
Very easy to set up a match.....terrific guy to meet whose career pales to many including mine.
We took it fairly easy on the mat, but built up a good amount of sweat. Tall, lanky, strong appreciates a good sweaty workout. He boxes too!
Can't say enough about him and thank him again for being considerate on the mat being my first time in several months.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by dnava20
This guy is friendly and welcoming off the mat, but once the match starts he's a beast. He really enjoys testing your limits and dishing out the punishment through long holds. He is in great shape and has a lot of energy and stamina. I had a great time meeting up with this guy and look forward to his return for another match.
dnava20 is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Thanks again bud for being understanding to my ever changing schedule on the day we met! Tough man.....took all the holds and punishment and smiled "mostly" through them all. He is stronger than he thinks and holds up to long prolonged punishing holds. We had a good long battle:) A good man who is reliable and understanding. Yes, next time we need to meet just a little earlier in the "day"
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Green
NYleanmuscle is a great wrestle. He has skills, stamina, and is very competitive. You will work hard for a submission, and sweat a lot to get one. Great athlete, really good guy, easy to look at and easy to communicate with– an all around good sport. I had heard lots about this wrestler before we met up and he more than lived up to his reputation. I hope this was just our first fight.
Green is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Unfortunately, we were both not in 100% wrestling shape with some nagging injuries, but we made the most and best out of the time rolling on the mat!!! I cannot say enough about this fine opponent. Tough, nasty headlock btw, in shape, makes you work for every hold......building to a long prolonged sweat fest. A great challenge and opponent! Easy to communicate and schedule, responsible, sharp, easy to look at, just a good man. Yes, there will be a rematch for sure .......

This guy still rocks and always will......
NYleanmuscle has to be one of the greatest guys out there. In addition to being hot as hell, this man truly is skilled, very tough and a great competitor. He will go as long and as hard as you want. It you want a rough, competitive match, he;s there. If you want something less intense, he can also do that as well. He is very serious about wrestling and will do everything in his power to make sure you have a hot, sweaty time Off the mats, he is beyond friendly and a great host. I'm very lucky to have known him. If you have a chance to wrestle him go for it! I promise you, you won't regret it.

He still has it........
We go way back. I cannot say enough about him. We've had all types of matches....most at marathon length proportions. Tough, skilled, rough(if you want to go there), always down for a match and a good time. A terrific bud over the years and glad to see him back beating on opponents again:) Worth your time to meet for sure!

Lean fit guy who enjoys a good wrestle. Mature engaging company off the mats, we all had a lovely afternoon.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Perseus
Well his fit strong and in great shape. He will give you a great work out and has decent wrestling skills and fun to wrestle. Im pretty sure we will have round 2 in the future. Off mats easy to talk to and a nice fella and pretty cultured too. Definite recommendation from me.
Perseus is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Met this tough opponent recently. Don't let that warm friendly smile fool you.....he can go with the best of them! Knowledgeable, skilled, can go at various degrees of wrestling, sane and will make you sweat. A really good man both on and off the mats. Glad we met.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by scotsgrappler
Was a pleasure to meet this chap at a group over weekend. Knowledgeable,skilled, careful for his opponents while bringing the challenge right at them. He could mix it up with the toughest, I reckon. Good company, hygienic and ready to fight.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by millzaj
I had an awesome match with this guy. We went on for hours. He’s very fit, strong and skilled. Most importantly fun! I can’t wait for round 2.
millzaj is recommended by NYleanmuscle
As mentioned in other posts, this guy can seriously take a punch and doesn’t mind throwing a a few too. Tough wrestler wants it rough so be prepared. He can handle it all too! Nice guy....easy to talk to and agree on specifics concerning the match. Might take time to schedule but worth it esp if you like a punch induced match.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by alexxwrestler
Pretty strong fighter and very safe while wrestling. Don't think because he is older you would beat him, he can take a lot and will submit you in less than one minute! Those legs are pretty dangerous! Ahahahah
NYleanmuscle is recommended by grappleruk
Really nice guy who was super easy to arrange a match with. Keeps himself in really good shape and knows what he was doing. Polite, gracious and friendly on the mats and great to chat with after. Definitely recommended and look forward to rolling with again.
grappleruk is recommended by NYleanmuscle
The real deal here. Easy to communicate and schedule a match.Very skilled in several forms of wrestling. Knows his stuff. Super smooth in moving from one hold to another. A pleasure to roll with even though my back was pasted to the mat most of the 3 hours. Great guy on and off the mat. Perhaps, one of the best wrestlers I met on this site. I would wrestle him again in a minute.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by HillSubmission
Had a great match with Paul. He's as good a guy as he is a wrestler, which is to say he's one of my favorite opponents I've met off MeetFighters so far. Highly recommend!
HillSubmission is recommended by NYleanmuscle
As someone pointed out on here, he is built like a wrestler....and drives you down like a freight train. A very nice surprise to meet! Though he is still new to the sport, he keeps coming at you. Reliable, sane, easy to coordinate schedules, good looking, built and solid. Our match was a sweatfest:) Terrific young wrestler and will stay in touch.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by jeffjitsu
I enjoyed meeting and wrestling NYLM. He's a well-conditioned man with a solid mid-section. We mixed competitive submission fighting with practicing some holds and exchanging positions. We talked quite a bit throughout the match and even decided to grab some dinner afterwards. I most certainly recommend NYLM.
jeffjitsu is recommended by NYleanmuscle
I might as well break the ice here and start giving him a deserved recommendation. Been away from wrestling and back at it now, he is better than he admits. Sane, skilled, and fun......he will wrestle you at your level and give you a workout and a good sweat:) Good guy who should begin to build up his recommendations on here. Easy to communicate and plan a match....a plus! After a few hours.....and some soreness creeping in, it was well worth meeting him.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by tzitzi
We met during a group meet in London. He was the one who suggested me to join and i am glad and thank him for that.
We had competitive rounds , full of sweat, the way i like it, competitive but friendly and absolutely safe at the same time. He is in great shape, very fit and skilled , obviously more experienced than me .I was paying attention all the time to learn from his moves.
You can also enjoy his company, because he is a sociable and smart person, interesting personality. Can make you feel comfortable very easily.
Go for him, you won t regret it!
tzitzi is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Met this wrestler at a group session.
In shape, reliable, sane and feisty wrestler. We went at it after both of us had a marathon of matches beforehand. He will give you a tussle for sure. Has knowledge of the sport and keeps the match moving. Off the mat....a good man and one you can be sure will make the match. Meet him!
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Jay219
We met at a group meet that started of small and quickly grew in size. This guy is a very fit and strong wrestler, looks great in his singlet. We had a couple of long drawn out sweaty rolls, narrowly escaping a few great choke holds that impressed me. Great guy to chat to off the mats, was great to hear about his matches out in the states.
very much up for another match some time and he comes highly recommended by me.

Like others at the group session, a must to meet!

Was fortunate to have the opportunity to encounter NYleanmuscle at a group meet at Walthamstow.
NYleanmuscle is a good competitive wrestler, he's in great shape and strong.
During our bout, he gave me a excellent workout and I look forward to wrestling him again in the future. Also great guy to have an intelligent conversation with in the pub.
I would recommend a match with him.

Met this grappler at the end of a group session. Glad I did:) With his freestyle background, he knew how to use his body to his advantage. I tried my best and hoped that my cardio would keep me in the game.
Terrific guy off the mat....great conversationalist and hope to meet up again. Meet him!

Met NYLM at a group meet recently. He can certainly tackle an opponent above his weight category. He's in good shape, knows some good moves, and doesn't tire easily. Off the mats, a good guy with a great sense of humour and some interesting stories. Likes a drink too, which is good in my book. Highly recommended.

Tough, determined grappler.....gives you a battle for your money. Feisty bloke. Sane, reliable, in shape.......
Off the mat, terrific guy. Along with the rest of the gang, conversations and laughs were abundant. Good man! Meet him.

We go way back when this grappler lived in London. He was one of the first matches I had when visiting London back in the late '90s.
Tough, in great shape, skilled wrestler.....knew his submission and pro holds. We worked up a sweat A real gentleman off the mats. Made me feel welcome in his home. Would love another shot at him when I make it up to Canada.

I had the good fortune to meet NYleanmuscle at a group meeting during his short visit to London. He's skilled on the mats and really knows how to use his core to advantage. He in great shape and we moved around every corner of the mat it seems. Great company over a beer and dinner. Would gladly meet up again - and recommend him to others.

He did not make me forget it either. Powerful wrestler on the mats.....I tried my best but this guy is strong and does not give you an inch. Sane and reliable...well built.....be ready for a battle. Off the mats, a terrific mate or as they would say in Britain, "a lovely man":)
Hope to meet up with him again soon.

Feb 2017, I was one of many this weekend to be introduced to and wrestle with this NY guy. Charming to the end and a great wrestler. We also shared many friends and contacts on the US wrestling circuit which made for great conversation. A very very fit and strong guy and a total pleasure for me to have the opportunity to meet. Absolute recommendation to anyone.
Mark uk is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Met at a group session this past weekend.
Heard much about this wrestler and he met all those expectations. Built like a mini-truck and luckily did not get to feel it like some other wrestlers:)
Strong as a bull and skilled but "kind enough" to keep you and the match interesting. A pleasure to roll with him on the mats and still be able to talk about it.
Terrific guy off the mats too.
Like others have said, he is a must to meet.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by MuscleBond
After having talked/chatted here on MF for many years I had the pleasure to meet and fight with NYLean during a recent group meet. The man is strong and has years of experience making him a solid and formidable wrestler and great to roll with.
Off the mats a friendly and sociable fella and all-round-nice-guy.
Looking forward to future meet ups - 100% recommended.
MuscleBond is recommended by NYleanmuscle
It has been years in the making, but I finally met this "beast on the mat" during a group session.
As you can tell, I survived the tussle:) Experienced wrestler, strong as hell, and will keep you honest on the mat.
He is a genuine guy. Sane, reliable, in shape, determined, but will go over holds/moves with you to assist you in keeping competitive. Fun. spirited guy and willing to have fun with it all.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Jack-Jack
It was the greatest honour for me to meet NYleanmuscle during his latest visit to the UK and a pleasure to host this awesome guy. He is an exceptional fighter, highly skilled and immensely strong, with an intuitive technical ability and experience that made him a very challenging opponent. I learned a lot from him, I can see where I need to improved and he's inspired me to continue developing and honing my skills.
Off the mats he is a great guy and a true gentleman, as well as being great company and fun to talk with.
Without a doubt, I highly recommend this man as an opponent and hope we will be able to have another match.
Jack-Jack is recommended by NYleanmuscle
After a painful entry into the UK through immigration/customs once in the UK, I was looking forward to a nap after the overnight flight and "greeting".
Not so easy.....journeyed north of London to meet this fine gentleman. I can't say enough about him, his hospitality, his home...etc. You couldn't beat the day. After a good conversation, we took to the mats for some ground grappling working up into a sweat. He is determined, strong, sane and real.....and for those who care......a looker. We traded holds till exhaustion. A truly terrific guy and a very nice day out in the country. His cottage/home is beautiful. The day made me forget about the morning.....that's for sure. Meet this mate!
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Lomandlad42
Got the opportunity to meet this fella whilst he was in the Uk at a group meet. Although we only had a short tussle it left me wanting more. Tough , strong and a cracking wrestler I can only repeat what his other recommendations say. Definitely up for a much longer session next time you're in town mate👍 Another must meet in my humble opinion

very good and while untrained, he can fight as well as one. i could not get a submission out of him, not even once. i think it ended 0-3

Strong young wrestler here. Though he is learning, he knows more than he thinks:) If not for the weight advantage on him, our match might have resulted differently. Excellent shape....great stamina and easy to communicate with. I just wish time was not a factor. We both agreed next time it will be longer for sure. Terrific wrestler here.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Anthon1
Seriously solid and tough–this guy is built like granite. A great sub wrestler, was able to put on some kimura holds and has powerful legs. Had a good body scissor battle exchange, could barely breathe when put in his squeeze. Had four rounds, wrestled to near exhaustion; this guy is the real deal.
Anthon1 is recommended by NYleanmuscle
What a blast! He agreed to wrestle submission style though he is knows his pro and freestyle moves too...he is built like a freestyle wrestler too. Great shape, deceptively strong......those scissors keep coming and coming. Terrific stamina too. Besides his wrestling prowess, he can hold a conversation and knows how to communicate. Two rarities with many wrestlers. Meet him!!

Having waited years to finally meet up with the "Dog" himself, we finally did it! Like his pics portray, he has put on muscle and bulk over the past year or so and looks terrific. I wish I can say that I was formidable opponent this time around, but I know I kept him busy for sure. He is tough, knows his holds and after the wrestling......a real good guy. We hope to meet sooner than later next time. Worth the wait!

Met up with this wrestler during a very warm spell in Manchester. After a hard tough one hour of wrestling, we were both soaked! Strong, very competitive wrestler...reliable, dependable and a great person to share stories. All around good guy who make you work for a submission. He is getting back into the game......so watch out fellow wrestlers.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by eastcheshireguy
Chatted with this guy for a while and it was great he offered a match while passing through Europe.
On meeting it looked like it was going to be a tough one as he's a well muscled, fit guy carrying no excess baggage! And so it proved. We rolled for around two hours that passed in a flash. We had a pretty large mat area and covered most of it repeatedly constantly needing to move back on. He's a very skilled guy with all his years on the mats so I was on a constant mission to counter. He has surprisingly strong legs which he used well - he can swing them up and around your head with ease which got me a couple of times as I recoiled but they do great body scissors too. I think I had the advantage on upper body strength which was useful if I could stay away from the legs!
So a great match after which you could wring the sweat out of our singlets! Loved it.
Great guy to chill with afterwards over a few rehydrating pints too, taking in the sights of Manchester!
Top recommendation from me if you can catch him on his travels.
eastcheshireguy is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Where do I go with this recommendation that others have not mentioned or at least hinted at in their own experience.
We spoke over a long period of time which made our initial meeting less "awkward".
He lived up to his "billing" (great shape, personable, reliable, very easy on the eyes, etc, etc). After a solid 2 hour sweat fest, and then trading some holds, I can surely claim this to be a keeper regarding matches.
Besides his legs, his upper body strength is impressive. His new name should be "Gorilla Arms".
Welcomed me to his "home".....cannot say enough except that I still want that arm bar:)
NYleanmuscle is recommended by chilldude
Wow–this guy is a great wrestler! Super fit and very strong as well. Plus, he's reliable, on-time, friendly, and easy to talk with. Really enjoyed our match, even if I woke up sore the next morning!

What a great surprise it was to meet this wrestler. He was strong, in shape, reliable, easy to communicate and plan match, good stamina, etc....all around good guy to wrestle!

I am surprised this "young buck" does not have more recommendations. Reliable, aggressive, strong, good looking, and a "normal" disposition, what else can you ask for? With his past freestyle background, he has the foundation for being an excellent wrestler. Watch out for those legs. A real nice surprise on this site and a welcome change too. Meet him.

Finally met the man after several missed attempts. We agreed to a promission match. He was respectful of the fact that I am still "young" to this style. Solid, strong build.....knows his stuff. Though his shoulder was sore, he continued to wrestle through it. Terrific guy, great sense of humor too. If you box, he is a good bet for that too. Thanks again for taking the time to meet me bud!

We have met several times since our initial match and.......well.......the guy is tough! A frustrating tough too......which is perhaps the worst kind. A great all around guy.....bud damn frustrating to wrestle!
This is going to sound redundant, but he is truly a determined, deceptively strong opponent. We had a sweatfest and he brought his "A" game with him...loads of fun! Besides being a great opponent, he is a terrific guy. Reliable, personable, and genuine. We are talking about our next rematch and hope it happens soon. A pleasure to meet.

Skilled wrestler, strong, experienced and rough on the mat. But very nice and friendly outside the mat. If you are looking for real submission wrestling match, don't hesitate to challenge him. Cheers

As others have mentioned here, real nice guy and very reliable. He was flexible in meeting me considering my crazy schedule here in OZ. Loves to wrestle and gives it his all.....doesn't mind some rough stuff either. Terrific guy and glad we met up.

Got the chance to meet up with this lean and skilled wrestler, fantastic body and his strength on the mat to match. He will make u work and sweat. A lot of fun! Can't wait for the rematch, was well worth the wait after my schedule cleared. Great guy, definitely recommend!
Yngrasslr00 is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Been trying to meet up with this scrappy wrestler for some time. He is a handful! Tough to pin down.....can go from easy to aggressive....any way you want the match to go he will provide the challenge. Nice guy when not rolling and easy to schedule without the drama. Don't let the lightweight fool you.

He is a skilled strong and fit opponent on the mats. He had me in many different holds and kept me there as long as he liked. Always safe and fun. A great pleasure to talk to off the mats. Highly recommended!

After a long planning stage, we finally got to meet. As described, smaller guy, feisty, tough, good cardio, mean headlock and dangerous legs. He will give you a battle and more if you want it. Terrific guy off the mat. A pleasure to finally meet up and roll with him!

Awesome wrestler with a great stamina and strenght. If you add some good skills on top of it, It makes a perfect combination. Reliable, and easy to set up a Match. I just regret not being able to give him a better Match the day we met. I hope our paths might cross again.
Great guy off mats....and a proud Newyorker as his name says ;) . Highly recommended.

LisbonWrestler is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Tough, strong wrestler. Will give you a good match and keep on coming for more. We have met up several times over the years and never disappoints. Likes to dish it out physically and vocally:) Terrific guy once the wrestling ends.......

we met for t he second time after several years and this time had the advantage of a matroom.
A strong muscular opponent who knows how to use his weight and strength.
Great fun and recommended
NYleanmuscle is recommended by UKSubsFighter
Great guy both on and off the mats!
We'd exchanged messages on and off over the years and wasn't a disappointment to finally meet
In great shape and with good skills
When we did wrestle he was my first after recent knee surgery and was totally safe and respectful of this
Good company and great to chat too as well do wholeheartedly recommended!
UKSubsFighter is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Though I had been in contact with UKSubsFighter for many many years, it finally took a train ride to his home town to make it even more worthwhile. A terrific fighter who is skilled but understands his opponent's capabilities. You will get your workout even when he is not in 100% form. He has great space to roll in too. Just can't say enough about this wrestler....a terrific guy, handsome too, and an opponent in every sense of the word.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by readyforit
NYleanmuscle is American dynamite. On the mat, as we grabbed each other's shoulders, his steady gaze and lean, muscled body coiled and ready for action told me I'd be in for a hard bout. Using but not abusing his superior grappling skills (these yanks start wrestling in high school) the man got me pinned and wriggling time and again.
A great guy. Fit as hell, charming and handsome to boot. I'd go miles to wrestle him again.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by joewrestler
NYleanmuscle was one of my first regular wrestling buds in NYC. Our matches were super long, super sweaty and very fun. He is a must meet in NYC or if he is visiting your town – don't pass on him. Aside from being very handsome, he is very skilled with a great strong built. He will work you hard on the mats, but you will enjoy it.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by MuscChamp
Paul is a total stud - muscular, ripped and a skilled beast on the mats. He is also a kind gentleman who reminded me that I had submitted him 12 times! At my advanced age, senility inhibits me from counting that high! We had a terrific time together - chatting, grappling and laighing. I'm happy that I now have a new wrestling buddy in New York who is too old for me to call "my boy"! He even tempts me to give up my addiction for pummeling 18 - 35 year old studs......well, maybe! :-)
MuscChamp is recommended by NYleanmuscle
On a positive side, I was honored to be given a chance to meet up and roll with the Champ himself. That is about it on the positive side:) Actually, I was schooled in ground grappling by the Champ. His strength, skills and instincts overpowered me; though, I did give him a battle. He did need water and a towel! Great guy and an Italian truck...all in one. Round 2 is being planned.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Subwrslrnyc
We had an awesome, sweaty match last night. Beforehand paul was really accommodating and friendly as a host. On the mats, he's a beast–strong, experienced, great stamina–with a killer body. Do not miss the opportunity to wrestle him. One of the best matches I've had so far and will definitely be coming back for more.
Subwrslrnyc is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Finally met up after several texts and chats...well worth the wait. Still fairly new to the wrestling scene but has scrappy resilience, deceptively strong and loves to apply leg holds as often as possible....and apply them well too. Great guy, better looking than his pics(for those who care), reliable...all around good guy. We have plans for matches in 2015 for sure.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by RNC23
Great guy!! Been in talks with him for awhile, real glad we finally met up! Very tough guy on the mats, real nice dude off of them. Looking forward to rolling with him again!
NYleanmuscle is recommended by hdscissorztn
A great guy who is one very knowledgable and strong wrestlers. Did not do competitive but physical enough to know he has the power and skill to put up a good fight. Fun guy to hang with on and off the mats. I hope he returns to Nashville soon.
hdscissorztn is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Want to meet someone who is friendly, reliable, strong and fit and makes you feel like he knew you for years....head to Nashville and meet him. He should teach some of the guys on wrestling sites how to be a gentleman who likes to wrestle.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by my8kitso
I told him ahead of time I just like to get sweaty and wrestle for fun and I'm not an experienced wrestler. He said that was ok and respected my limits. Even though we're the same size and weight, he could have whipped my ass, but he was easy on me and we had an excellent time. I was smiling for days after over the fun man to man wrestle session we had.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by freestyle

I have wrestled this guy in San Francisco and now Vancouver, he's a very strong challenger and had me in many holds and submissions. Great guy on and off the mats, would recommend him to anyone, he's a decent, stand up guy.

Pual is a real man, strong & confident, very competitive that
not showing much weakness. I had the pleasure of wrestling him

omr24 is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Don't let his mild mannered disposition fool you. Once you start the match, he is ready to go right at it. Deceptively strong and willing to be as aggressive as you want the match. Strong and tough....of course, sane and a very nice guy. Meet him!
NYleanmuscle is recommended by orenbon
NYleanmuscle is real fun to wrestlw with, no matter what your level is. In a good shape (you cannot believe he is more than 50 yo!) and a very nice person. Recomended to everyone.

njmuscguy1 is recommended by NYleanmuscle
OK....after 2 hours of grappling with loads of sweat and post match soreness a day later...what can you say about your opponent! BJJ and wrestling background, built like a compact bull....will give you a workover for sure. Drink loads of fluid and be prepared for some bruises....great guy and can't wait for our next sweatfest.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by SeattleFight
Paul is a stud and awesome to fight. Tough, rough, nasty, cocky, mouthy, ripped - all those good things. Can take a punch and dish it out too. I'd fight him any day of the week - maybe twice. Besides enjoying it when we beat the crap out of each other, he's a great guy to hang with too.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Luvthemats
Great endurance, never quits, in short a real athlete...something in short supply. Oh, and a great guy too.
NYleanmuscle is recommended by Scrapmerchant 1
I have fought Paul on a couple of occassions. He is a terrific guy off the mats - great conversationalist and a nice guy to have a beer with. On the mats he is totally different, he is strong skilled and aggressive and gives as good if not better than he gets.
A safe, sane, tough bloke who i would never tire of fighting. I hope for a rematch in the near future. If you are in NYC hook up with Paul, you won't be disappointed!
