Profile of bobster (35)
OK time to update the profile so here goes.
Yea I am getting older but I still have some energy to put out on my mats. I have a set up of 10 x 10 mats and they are always ready for use. Most of the guys I have wrestled can verify about the mats. I am more than happy to host guys and no that does not require me to get involved in the match.
I have no formal training at all so you will have to take that up when we wrestle. I will still do my best to get a submission out of you.
We have all contacted guys in our respective areas about meeting up. All I request is that if I send you a message at least say yes or no. I can take rejection. It has the same effect as water off a duck's back.
If you say in your profile you want to wrestle and have been a member here for more than two years and have no opponents something is wrong unless you live in the middle of the Pacific Ocean like Guam.
That being said lets try to meet up and have an enjoyable time on the mats and maybe make new friends.

Bob is a great host and wrestler. He has a lot of knowledge and can quickly have you tied up and in trouble. Bob is super fun to wrestle and has a nice mat room set up. Hit him up for a match if you're in the Charlotte area.
SCwrestleguy is recommended by bobster
OK had another match with SCWrestleguy this past week end. He has been hitting the gym and it shows. He is stronger and a lot tougher to handle on the mats. I am going to have to get myself in better shape if I want to keep up with him.
If you want a great match with a strong opponent then hit him up for one.
I have mats here in Charlotte and if you want to challenge him here then the mats are yours to use.
Treat yourself to a good match and the chance to meet a great guy.
I first met Bob many years ago. He has always been such a nice and gracious host. He has a great mat room and is very flexible with styles. He's quite the legend in Charlotte and knows the local guys well. Take some time to get to know him and have some fun on the mats.
Just had a match with cltfunguy. He is awesome no question about it. A very strong, very solid opponent and a skilled wrestler.
I had no chance against him. I tried and got one hold on him but could not get a sub out of it. He does not give up.
If you are a real wrestler then you should give him the honor of meeting him on the mats.
Treat yourself to a work out.
Here’s a real wrestling gentleman. Courteous, kind, smart and funny, a great host with a matroom that is tight, and perfect for in close grappling.
I had heard about Bobster ever since I started grappling some 4 years ago. My own schedule, inhibitions and fears kept me from accepting his offers to meet for a match. He’s patient and persistent... thank goodness.
If he contacts you and wants to set something up? Do it! Don’t hesitate, do it! Thank you! I look forward to more matches. BearHugs
Met Jeff and I was taken back by his skill level. He is amazing. Knew how to handle me and put me in holds my body wasn't sure if it could take. But did so in the fashion of a gentleman and highly skilled opponent.
I highly recommend him if you want to be tested and put through a hard work out.
Give him the honor of working with you if he says he wants to meet up with you. You will come away far better for wrestling him.
I hosted him here on my mats and will welcome him here any time, he has a standing invitation to return.
Bob is a Great Host - Has a Great Mat setup and is a tough opponent. Strong puncher and has technical knowledge of submission grappling and fighting.
Hey met Altfight today and my place. He had a match set up with another wrestler but was kind enough to let me try and get some holds on him. If he really wanted to I would have been dinner. That being said I would certainly like to try and roll with him again, if he will have me. He is a total gentleman and will take the match to the level of his opponent.
So for all f you real hard wrestlers, grapplers and fighters out there treat your self to a match with him and make sure you give him the courtesy of showing up for the match.
If he ever gets back to the Charlotte hares my mats are open to him any time any day.

Met Wreststevster and he is a great honest guy who wants to learn more about both boxing and grappling.
He is definitely a guy who I want to meet up with again and we can do a rematch. He was fighting another guy so I had the advantage of getting him after he was a bit worn down. I wont;t let that go to my head and if i get him fresh I will have my hands full.
I recommend him to anyone who wants to meet a great guy and a guy who will snow up and learn stuff.

I wrestled Bobster a few years ago on his home mats. We had a good match. He's a great technician with a terrific headlock. He has good size and stamina, and he's faithful to his profile. He won most of our falls, so he's really good. I enjoyed wrestling with him and hope to have an opportunity to do so again one of these days.
I enjoyed getting to know and to wrestle Bobster. A southern gentleman with a solid headlock. Looking forward to round 2.
Hey there just had a match with Moto60. Fantastic man and very skilled a true gentleman both on and off the mats. He owned me in the match and treated me kindly.
He is welcome to come back and use my mats anytime he is in the area for another match with me or anyone else he might set up a match with.
I recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great experience with a great wrestler. He mixes in his knowledge of judo in a try submission match.
You will work up a sweat and have a fantastic work out and a outstanding wrestling experience.

I met Bobster several years ago on my way to a conference in NC. He is very generous with his dedicated mat room. He loves to wrestle and is a gracious host.
atlantawrestles is recommended by bobster
Wrestled atlantawrestles this afternoon, or at I tried to wrestle him. He did a number on me but did it nicely. He is a super great wrestler and a total gentleman. I really hope he can find more wrestlers who can give him a real match.
If you skip over him you will be only cheating yourself and losing out on an opportunity to meet a great man and real opponent.
bobster is recommended by FirmScissor
Had a blast with Bobster. Very hospitable and he has a good mat room. Strong, competitive and knows his moves. We also taught each other a few new moves. Just check his profile....he has a lot of experience. Highly recommended!
FirmScissor is recommended by bobster
Met this guy and heard about his legs. Well I should have listened better. His legs are awesome. He got me in a combination leg scissor and head lock. The best I could do was squirm. So beware.
That being said he is a great guy and we also had some great conversation between holds and matches. I hope we can meet up again and have a retry.
bobster is recommended by videostar07
For my first match ever, I went up against this wonderful (and may I say talented) man here! He was gentle, he showed me some holds, and he kept the match alive when I was too clueless to do anything. XD
I’m so excited to face him again!
After being shown how far my comfort zone can go with Bob, I decided to just let loose and see where it took me! We both became more aggressive and I loved every second of it! He always checks and makes sure you’re okay before continuing and he’s still pretty strong for a man his age (I attempted to say that without calling him old.). Nothing but applause from me to him for being able to wear me out quite a bit before I went to work!
videostar07 is recommended by bobster
Today October 10, 2018 had a short 45 minute match with videostar, we wrestled three falls and yea he go the best of me 2-1.
If you can line him up for a match then treat yourself to a fun time. A young man with no attitude and no ego. I had a great time and hope to again sometime in the future.
He is strong and knows how to use his skills (Watch out for his legs).
Just had a fantastic match with this young man. He is everything his profile says he is plus being a strong young man.
This being new for him we did keep the pace a little slower but we hope to have more matches and get more aggressive with each match.
If you are coming through this area try to arrange a match with him you will not be disappointed.
Ok update May 7,2018.
Had a rematch with him today and WOW what a difference. Last time I think he took it easy on me. This time he let loose on me. We had a great match and yes his legs are powerful. My hard and ribs can back me up on that claim.
I had areal match on my hands and if you want to have a real match on your hands GIVE him and chance. He has learned some new tricks and isn't afraid to use them. He is very agile and can get out of a lot of holds that trap other wrestlers.
Not much experience here, and it’s been a LONG time since I last wrestled so taking on an experienced guy like Bobster was a real treat. My instinct was to put him back flat on the mat and take control. It’s just what I knew. I had some success, but it wasn’t easy bringin’ this guy down. He’s got some real muscle strength. Pay attention at all times. If not he’ll wrap you up and it’ll be game over.
So glad we met. He introduced me to some really good moves which I can now work on. He’s a great guy too. He knows how to be safe and easy to talk to. Will definitely want to meet Bobster again.
WOW!!! What a fantastic time I had wrestling Gwave. We were on my mats wrestling for like 3 hours worked up some sweat and worked one another over. Warning if he gets on top of you you are dead meat he know how to control you and work you.
I want him back here ASAP and I mean like NOW if I could. He says he doesn't know much but he is a fast learner and I will have to watch him the next time. I did manage to get some holds in on him but he worked me over.
Please if you ever get a chance to wrestle him do your self a favor and get on the mats.
He is a gentleman and a fine man to know. I am glad I had the opportunity to meet him and have a match with him. He is welcome in my house anytime he is in the area even if not for wrestling just to socialize. He is a fine young man.

Was a pleasure hosting Bobster. Boy we had a good many bouts that weekend and even one at night by the bonfire. His enthusiasm made for some great wrestling. I’m hoping to get him up to my place again real soon. I know we’ll have us a good ole time!
TheNatureBoy is recommended by bobster
Yea it was a while ago since I wrestled The NatureBoy but i can still remember that it was a fantastic match and I am still hoping to meet up with him again. On and off the mats he was the total host.
Please by all means line up a match with him and treat yourself to a good time. He is strong and a good clean wrestler. He knows a lot of holds and believe me I think I was in most of them.
Challenge him and follow up,
bobster is recommended by Northernbeef65
Well, at the second attempt I got to meet and wrestle Bob. The guy is a true gentleman and a wonderful host! Hie set up is very good (especially if you like wresting from the floor).
The match was hot and sweaty and a lot of fun. He dealt very well with my weight advantage and we had a good roll for a decent amount of time.
I would recommend this tough old wrestler to anyone - and don't be fooled by his age, this guy is up for battle!
Northernbeef65 is recommended by bobster
Hey wrestled Northern and had a fantastic time. I did get lucky and get him once (by luck).
He is the living image of his profile. Make no mistake if you wrestle him you are going to have a hard fought match. You will have to use your skills to outlast him and control him. If you decide to waffle and take a pass on wrestling Northern you will only be robbing yourself of a good match and a gentleman of a competitor.
He is most certainly welcome back to my house anytime he is in the area and needs a place to wrestle.
bobster is recommended by MatureJOfan
Finally met the Bobster! Strong man! Great host and I hope to role with him again!
Met Jason in Jacksonville and wrestled him over the week end we had some intense matches and he is a tough guy to handle.
If you want to treat yourself to a fun match and a good work out then challenge him to a match. It will be well worth your effort.
Bob is a great host, all around awesome guy and knows his way around the mat. Bob was very accommodating to my schedule when I was in town visiting and has a great set mat room set up in his house. He is big and strong and don't let his age on his profile fool you. I may have gotten the better of him in most of our matches but I had to work hard for each win. Take him on if you dare!
OK just had a match with Ben. AWESOME!!! That is the best I can say. He is a fantastic wrestler wanting to learn new tactics and holds.
He works out and that is obvious when you see him and it really shows.
We had 4 matches on my mats and he took me in 3 of them. If you ever get a chance to wrestle Ben then treat yourself to a fun time and a great match. He is welcome here any time and my door is open for him. I just wish he lived closer to Charlotte.

Met bobster a few years ago and had a good, challenging match with him when he hosted an informal tournament at his home where he has a great mat setup. He's a good guy to know. Get in touch with him.

This guy is outstanding. Don't be fooled by the weight. He is strong and a wiry guy. Just remember dynamite comes in smaller packages for a reason.
The wrestling is awesome and his MMA is equally awesome. I was twisted in more angles than I thought I could be, but after the match it actually felt great being stretched.
It is fun to wrestle a guy with no attitude and he is always welcome back on my mats.
Had a great time wrestling Steve. He is a beginner but eager to learn and stronger than he realizes. He is a great host and welcomed me into his home. Hope we can have a rematch soon and see how much he has picked up.
I suggest anyone should meet up with Steve and have a fun time wrestling.
Wrestled Joe today. Man what a match! Joe is just getting started but a super fast learner and doesn't forget anything I tried to show him. If you want to treat your self to a fine match then set up a match with Joe. He is strong and fast.
I look forward to the day when we can have a rematch and maybe I can last longer and pin him a few more times.
Great man and great opponent. Keep wrestling Joe and I hope you get many more matches.
Bob is a great guy and a great host. He is a skilled wrestler and was very tough to bring down! He is great for beginners too and has shown me a little bit of what he knows during our few times wrestling together. I highly recommend him.
Bobster was a great host with a good setup. He's a strong guy and very solid, and his defenses restricted my move set until I got him a bit winded. His workout room is great for a mat battle.
Just had a match with Clt79. WOW!! What a wrestler and a great perosn to meet. We wrestled for like 90 minutes. He has fantastic stamina and watch out for his legs.
I hope to meet him again and have a rematch. I managed to get a few subs in the beginning but then he took over and worked me over. It was a fantastic match and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to work up a sweat and have some fun.
No attitude and no agenda what a fine person and wrestler.

I wrestled Bobster a few years ago and what a guy, he is so reliable and dedicated that he even picked me up from my hotel brought me to his mats home and we wrestled a super hot nice sweaty match. We had so much fun and we made a great connection. I look forward to meeting him again and having more fun wrestling and as buddies... I WANT MORE!

Always good to have a match with bobster. He is very skilled and knows his holds. You have to work hard t gain an advantage. We had a great match. I would recommend Bobster-he is a good man both on and off the mats.
carolina wrestler is recommended by bobster
Wrestled Carolina on Sept 30. Had a great time man. I have wrestle him before but this time at his place. He has a great set up and loves working up a sweat. He know wrestling from sub to pro and is not afraid to take on bigger guys. Treat yourself to a match with him. You won't be disappointed but will leave with a work out under your belt.
bobster is recommended by justbeyond
Bob is a gracious host with a nice setup. Very friendly and was very patient showing me several arm holds and moves. He's more than happy to help someone that is just starting out & very patient. We had a nice match! Definitely a great experience and highly recommended! A true gentleman! Thanks Bob!

Just had a match with "justbeyond" had a great time and look forward to having more matches with him. He is stronger than what he thinks and can control a guy with the right holds.
I think anyone would have a good time wrestling him and I recommend him for a match.
I had such a fun time with bob. We had a great wrestling match and made a great connection. I look forward to meeting him again and having more fun.
Gapbear was a fantastic wrestler. He owned me on the mats. We had a great time and was a fantastic host. I can only hope to reciprocate. I look forward to wrestling him again and I hope I can give him a better match.
If you get a chance to meet him don't let the chance pass you by. Wrestle him and have a great time.
bobster is recommended by Roughmatch
Both of us attended the Hillside Wrestling Weekend on several occasions. We wrestled a good match on the submission mats. He was very strong and skilled. He out-weighed and out-muscled me, which gave me challenges I could not overcome. I lost to him in several rounds but he was very sportsmanlike and a lot of fun to fight.
Bob and I have wrestled many times! He's a great guy and a great host. Always enjoy the meets at his house!
If you are in Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia or the Carolinas Bobster is a great host. He's a very good wrestler, a true Gentleman, and one of my favorites. We've had some nice long matches in the past and I'm looking forward to more. Soon <g>
This man is a fantastic wrestler. He can go from aggressive wrestling to showing the novice holds and rolling around with them. He is a great person make it your priority to try and get a match with him.
I want to have another match with him, I know I will have a great time.
yonkerswrangler is recommended by bobster
Wrestled "yonkers" in PA in July and had a great match with him. He could have manhandled me but was nice and actually showed me some moves and holds. We went back and forth. I recommend him to any and all wrestlers. Just get yourself ready to have a great match!!!

took a while for a face to face meet but it was well worth it rolling with the Bobster....guy knows his stuff and a great gent off the mats as well.
