Introduction

Website

Always up for a good match, have a basement mat room in Staten Island, New York City USA near Staten Island Ferry, do mostly submission and freestyle/collegiate wrestling, have lots of endurance and like long sweaty intense hard-fought matches for competition and fun with guys up to about 190 lb. (that limit's definitely not written in stone though), fun but also a good workout. 4% bodyfat, 162 somatotype, 36 resting heart rate.

Enjoy going to various wrestling events including NYC Wrestlefest, and also hold my own events sometimes. Ask me about Sunday/Monday afternoon open mats on Staten Island. Photos from Hillside, Okie Rumble and Wrestlefest on the website: http://palaestra.us.com/

NickZ is recommended by Mainewrsl

NickZ is a legend here, and for good reason. He's a patient teacher, a skilled technical wrestler, and a man with seemingly boundless energy. He will outlast you and wear you down, so be forewarned. I was outclassed and outmuscled our entire afternoon, but with a wrestler this much fun, who cares? Highest recommendation!

NickZ is recommended by Stoicwrestle

Nick is a strong and agile wrestler. If you want to learn and make your game better, Nick is your man. You can’t get out of his headlocks and he has a neck of a bull, solid muscle. I am very grateful of Nick, for being my teacher.
Off the mat, Nick is an absolute sweetheart, easy with a smile and always willing to help.

I met Stoicwrestle in Nov. 2021 at Metro freestyle wrestling practice, when he joined as a beginner. He learned quickly and is a good wrestler, regular at our practices every week, sometimes at an extra midweek session also, always eager to hit the mats and take on all opponents. He's got a good repertoire of moves and will always give you a great workout with a smile. Hit him up for a match and you won't be disappointed!

OH YEAH! OH YEAH! OH YEAH! 😏
Oh my new buddy NickZ, such a fun guy 🤩. From the moment we first met just hanging out at Wrestlefest, he just wanted to punch and pound on me lol, and I thought it was adorable Heheheh. Since I’m new to the scene and it was my first Wrestlefest, he said I need to get initiated and I was actually excited to get started lol. I did get a chance to grapple with him 1-on-1 on the mats and damn this guy can take squeezes like they’re nothing and I’m like holy [email protected]#* 😳. Of the mats, he still wants to punch me lol, but I love his fun energy and he’s just a great guy. I highly recommend him and would love to wrestle and just hangout with him again. I want to try squeezing him again to get him to tap damnit! Until we meet again buddy 💪🏼😈👊🏻

Hey, had my first match with Anvil910 at the NYC Wrestlefest and it was a blast! It was great meeting you. Like he said, we were hanging out, chatting and roughhousing, and yes I was gratuitously punching him ;-) but we finally did hit the mats. It was a lot of fun and a good workout ... and sure you can try to scissor me to a submission, but I might just go, "oh yeah oh yeah!" instead. ;-) Definitely looking forward to a rematch!

NickZ is recommended by USLutador

NickZ taught me everything I know about wrestling! I have known Nick for several years, in his capacity as the coach of Metro Wrestling in NYC, where he introduced me to the sport of wrestling in 2015. We have had many matches since then, at Metro practices, at Hillside Wrestling Weekend (which he organizes), and in his personal mat room at his Staten Island home. I can say with complete confidence that Nick is the real deal. If you are in NYC and want a good match, go talk to him. More importantly, if you are completely new to freestyle wrestling, and want to learn, ask him to teach you, as he is very patient when teaching beginners. On top of being one of the most athletic people I know, he also possesses a great character: he is kind and generous, intelligent and selfless. And his dedication to our sport is matched by very few. He is the embodiment of what a wrestler should be, which is likely why he has had so many matches and glowing recommendations here on MeetFighters. It most certainly is the reason that NYC's gay wrestling scene is alive and well. I can't wait to return to the City and hit the mats with him again.

I've known USLutador for 6 years and he's been a regular at Metro Wrestling practices as well as wrestling events such as the NYC Wrestlefests and Hillside Wrestling Weekend. He is enthusiastic, skilled and reliable. Wrestle him freestyle or submission and you won't be disappointed. He's a genuine and good guy off the mats as well. He's now starting a new wrestling team in Florida, so be sure to check out his practices when in town too.

I attended NickZ's pre-wrestlefest event at his house on Feb 2020. This guy is so much fun to wrestle, very quick, strong and skilled. We had a good back n forth session but I could not get any subs on him. We later exchanged punches to the gut and pecs. Surprisingly, I think I may have won that session ✌️😎. Great fun!

Great time with Nick Z while visiting New York City here at the end of
March, 2019. Nick came over to my hotel room at the end of his work shift (12 midnight), and we immediately went at it as soon as we were in the room. I see why he has the nickname "the energizer bunny," as there was no let up at all in this guy. He worked me over in our wrestling match, and got several submissions right away. I fought valiantly, but never was able to make him tap or say "I submit." The next 6 hours of wrestling, punching, pounding, grinding and roughhousing went by all too fast. Nick is a treasure, that is for sure, and a great intellect and conversationalist. Next time, buddy, beware. I am coming back for you!

Took the Staten Island ferry over from Manhattan and then a short bus ride had me at Nick's place. Great little set up in his basement with plenty of room on the mats.

He was itching to get going and we started as soon as I had my boots off - quite fun wrestling fully clothed! Slowly dropped to gear before anything got ripped though as he's a feisty guy. Although smaller than me he is strong and has great technique so a challenging session entailed and he was ahead on the subs as his experience shone through.

Finished off with a very full on massage - he likes it very firm!

Well worth the short trip over from Manhattan if you're in New York.

=== OFF THE MAT ===
Most tales of Nick are legendary in some way and this will likely be the same. He just happened to text me as normal and let me know he was coming to my state for a few days. He wanted to meet up.

Needless to say, excited was an understatement. He arrived just after I got out of work on Friday and stayed for the weekend. We got food and ice cream, got home, and kind of just fell into battle.

=== ON THE MAT ===
We wrestled back and forth. I had an idea of what was coming, so there were definitely fewer subs than there could have been. I learned a thing or two that gave me just a bit of an advantage. I also take punches surprisingly well and he was more than ready to give or take them at any moment; I honestly believe that he has superpowers fueled by being punched.

Between this guy and Bamm-Bamm, punching may be more of a thing for me than I thought it might. Nick's punches were solid, and I think I gave as well as I got, but we were safe and aware of each other the whole time.

We took short breaks to talk about any and everything. It felt like we'd been friends for decades. I missed him before he even left and I can't wait to see him again for more hangout and wrestling time. I'm glad I could host him while he was here and I'd do it again anytime.

Not recommending him though, because I want him to myself. >_<

9/21/17 Met Nick in DC after six years and it was like we've just saw each other the previous day. He's still the little dynamo I knew years ago. We wrestled hard and fast and trying to keep a guy a third or less of my size was extremely difficult. He got a few licks this time, so he's better, tougher, faster. A sexy, friendly guy with a glint in his eyes when he hears wrestling. This man could wrestle all day and still be unsatisfied. And he'd be as tough an opponent at 23 hours as at the first minute. Someone called NickZ, "The Mighty Mite". It's a fitting moniker! Afterwards again... Wow!

I challenge anyone to take on NickZ and tell me he isn't a fun guy to wrestle. You'd need a lobotomy if you say so.

7/30/11 To call Nick a force of nature is a gross libel to earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and tornadoes.The first word that comes to mind when wrestling Nick would be "fearless". This man will gladly (perhaps a little to cheefully at times) will take on any and all opponents regardless of size and weight. I am 2 1/2 times bigger and twice his height and took me on. I won, but he got a tap on me. And afterwards...

All in all, Nick is a great guy and I am very pleased to have met him. I look forward to wrestling him again very soon.

(9/21/2017) Very much enjoyed this rematch with Rafael at Chuck's mat room in the D.C. area (thanks Chuck/dcgrappler for hosting). We had previously wrestled at Hillside and at the NYC pre-Wrestlefest, but had not wrestled for years. Looked forward to the rematch, and we again had a great intense submission wrestling match and the (larger) weight difference doesn't matter. Wrestle him and you won't be disappointed.
(7/30/2011) It was a pleasure to meet Rafael at this year's Hillside wrestling weekend. Highly recommended. He's strong and skilled and always up for a fight. Sure there was that 172-lb weight difference, but enjoyed the challenge. Looking forward to a rematch at future events.

Nick is a very nice person and a welcoming host., with a good sense of humour. Earlier this week I attended a wrestling party & barbecue at his house on Staten Island. It was a lot of fun in a nice relaxed atmosphere.
As a wrestler he is one of the lighter guys, but as many of us Heavyweights know to our cost, size is't everything! He is very strong fast & skilled. Once your caught there is no escape! I think he would give most guys on here a run for their money. Thanks again Nick had a ball.

What a nice welcoming guy. Unfortunately I can't really add much to that already mentioned on here; he's a dynamo, very strong abs, creative gut puncher / punchee. In great shape, he puts many 'gym bunnies' to shame and he knows the what and why to exercise healthily rather than just being a slave to having big biceps and pecs. Doubtless he's a great wrestler too - meet with 100% confidence.

It was an honour to meet Nick during a short stay in NYC. He was generous enough to treck across town to where I was staying, while I got settled in. He was also very understanding about my jet-lag, and relative lack of experience, and we enjoyed a good hotel match despite our differences in weight and skill. Nick is made of solid iron, looks great in speedos, and knows how to do just about any wrestling move. Also, I think he could have gone on for many hours, but I was done for after being tied up in knots for only one.
I would definitely recommend meeting Nick if you get the chance. He could take on someone double my size with no problem. And a real gent too. Thank you.

Smallest guy I've ever wrestled. Lean and mean. Nicknamed the "Energizer Bunny" because of his endless stamina. I've seen him wrestle multiple guys over a space of just a few minutes. Doesn't like his action real rough but don't be fooled. He usually makes me tap out to a cradle every time. Excellent wrestler in collegiate and submission. Great host. Nice attitude. Willing to teach. One of my best buds on and off the mats. Love the impromptu fights he starts, even when there are no mats. He comes highly recommended. He will wrestle guys twice his size and often make them tap.

Definitely one of the toughest and strongest wrestler's I've ever faced. Have met him a few times and each time was better than the last. If you are up for a challenge, if you want to see what you are made of, take him on, you won't be disappointed. He's a friendly, respectful, fun guy, great to spend time with on and off the mats. The significant weight advantage (85 lbs) I had on him meant nothing as he's all muscle and will manhandle bigger guys as his superior cardio wears you down before he attacks over and over. If body punching during a match is your thing, you have found your man here...still can't get the sound of his giggling out of my head at each punch I connected, before he unloaded on me.
Can't wait for our next match.
