Permanently in Suffolk now. Sadly my mats handed over to the Barnet Mat Room. More than willing to travel for good tough but sane submission wrestling. Especially looking for heavyweights to wrestle but more than happy to adjust to lighter guys! Daytime, evening or weekend matches now possible.

dadwrestle is recommended by Roll23
Dadwrestle was one of my first matches on this site and I can’t think of a better way to get into wrestling than with this guy. He def had me sweating like crazy and I I loved every minute of this match. If you ever get the chance to fight him, take it!
Roll23 is recommended by dadwrestle
Met this young handsome wrestler on a trip to Houston a year or so back. Great physique, strong and feisty on mats! Easy to arrange the meet, he was safe, sane and arrived spot on time. It proved to be a most enjoyable, tough wrestling work out!! Roll on another trip to Texas! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation here. If this guy challenges you, ACCEPT! You wont regret it.
TexBearWrestler1 is recommended by dadwrestle
Met this Texas bear on a visit to Houston a year or so back! Had a great wrestle with him! Fun on the mats; good sense of humour. It was easy to set up the meet and he was punctual, safe and sane. If I find myself back in Houston I will be after the rematch! 100% Gold Star Recommendation
dadwrestle is recommended by Wrestle Bear GER
Catchbear1 and I met dadwrestle and Ben Skull Stevens at the Walthamstow Ring for a Tag Team Match. And what more can I say except that it was awesome. Not only did we had a hard fought wrestling match in the ring but also a 1 on 1 submission match on the matts. Dadwrestle is a strong and skilled opponent and I can recommend him to anyone. I would wrestle hin anytime again.
Wrestle Bear GER is recommended by dadwrestle
Another chance to take on the German Bear! We had a great time 1on1, on the mats and in the ring as well as doing a good tag match!
Mixed it 1on1 on the mats before a England v Germany tag match up! This is one solid, tough wrestler with endless stamina! We wrestled submission, and it was hard to get him to tap. He takes his punishment and comes back for more! Real joy to wrestle. Safe and sane, handles his weight well. This was a fight I had been looking forward to, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! Watching him to be coached in pro was good, too. This guy gets a thumbs up.....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! If you get the chance, wrestle this guy!
dadwrestle is recommended by Tynesider
6/10/18 I had the great pleasure of meeting up with and wrestling Dadwrestle at the Pippa's meet. It was as much fun as ever and he puts as much into a match as a much younger man. I love the bloke!
The agreed rule was "no headshots" and we both took full advantage of the lack of other rules.
This is a tough man and he took every blow that I gave him (including one accidental punch to the back of his head).
I'd recommend Paul to anyone; especially if they are after a rough NHB match. He can give it out and take it.
May 23rd; Round two. Another bruising encounter with Paul. he must enjoy a pounding from these Geordie fists as he keeps coming back for more. And more. I had a great time and repeat that I'd recommend him to anyone for a NHB fight.
21/April/2015 My latest meet with Paul and another great match. Starting as soon as we got in his room we fought for a couple of hours with the same NHB rules. I'll admit to being sore afterwards but it was well worth it. He is one of the stars of this site and gets a 100% recommendation from me.
13/August/2016 - a long awaited meeting with Paul at Pippa's today at John's meet. It's always good to see him and, of course, to fight him. A match in the ring was followed later by a too brief 3way tag match. I must be doing something right as I finally managed to stop him getting on top of me and I think i actually got him to submit. Of course I could be imagining that! Thanks again Paul mate.
28/1/2017 Round 5 (I think) and the best yet. That is mainly because I finally and definitely got the tough bugger to sub. We had a good, fun match with subs on both sides. It is always a pleasure to meet Paul whether socially or to wrestle and look forward to our next meeting.
13/8/17 it was really great to see Paul again and even better to get another bout with him amid his busy schedule. He is still as feisty as ever and still prone to use dirty moves. Tugging on my beard was almost unforgiveable. LOL but I did.
Tynesider is recommended by dadwrestle
One of the best guys on the circuit! No need to say any more!
Phew! Tough n rough as ever! Great scrap at a Manchester meet! This is one, hot wrestler! I know now that I have met my match with him! But I shall keep on coming back for more! Off the mats, as always, fun to be with!
Had to face this scrapper on his own turf! He's beefed up and trains regularly, so is even more of a handful than he was before! AS ALWAYS a hot, hard , fun fight. He had the upper hand early in the fight but I evened things up a bit as time wore on. I got in some good body punches, I am glad to say! This is one great, regular, exciting grappler who always delivers on the mats. Off the mats, he is the best tour guide out! This Tynesider gets the highest recommendation I can give! Platinum Star 100% Recommended!
Just as good, if not better, than our other fights! This is a wrestler who loves to get down to it...as I do! He is muscled and strong, and packs a good punch. We were both pretty knackered by the end of the fight, as it should be. This is one of the guys from this site who I most enjoy taking on. Its an intense session but fun. Off the mats, the conversation flows! Roll on Round 4!!
ROUND 2: Have to admit, this was an even better session than the first AND I have to admit I was beaten this time by the better man! Long hard sweaty full on scrap! Some great knees to the gut from him to me too! 100% genuine guy! Wrestles to agreed rules, safe n sane. GREAT GUY all round, on and off mats!
This was one of the best fights I've had! This guy has a great physique; broad shouldered, well muscled, strong! We agreed rules and fought by them. He punches HARD!!! he turned up exactly when he said he would; safe, sane reliable. fun guy off mats, really tough, mean and intense on them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We plan to fight again SOON!
dadwrestle is recommended by southerngrappler
I met dadwrestle at a meet in Manchester. We were chatting a while ago and lost touch (my fault)
I really enjoyed hitting the mats and we had a good pro match which I really enjoyed.
I am looking forward to meeting again soon!
southerngrappler is recommended by dadwrestle
Well, pro is not my favoured style, but I hit the mats with this great looking pro style guy at a meet in Manchester! He certainly looks the part in gear!! Must admit I enjoyed our session. Hope I got into the scene well enough to give him a good roll. He sells well, and we ran to three submissions! Nicest guy off mats. Safe, sane and fun! 100% Gold Start recommended.
dadwrestle is recommended by Gazbat0807
I got to the meet at pippas got changed and was challenged immediately I had no hesitation in saying yes we hit the mats I wrestled my best but he was more experienced but the match was good safe an sane an I managed to use the moves I've learnt after the match we agreed to another later on in the meet a great guy an was glad I agreed to wrestle him would recommend him to anyone for a match hope we can meet up soon for another match
Gazbat0807 is recommended by dadwrestle
I am always surprised when much smaller guys agree to wrestle me! There was no hesitation at all in this case! We hit the mats a few times during a meet in Manchester. This guy came at me with all he had and was determined that he brought a real fight to the mats. Safe, sane and determined. A feisty wrestler! Hope to meet up with him again SOON! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by Warkscub
06/10/18 yet another amazing grapple with Paul, this time at Pippas. I'm sure he gets stronger every time we meet but still makes an awesome match. Had a great time! Thanks Dad ;-)
19/12/16 Had a trip to Barnet mat room to meet this fantastic wrestler again. Will echo my previous recommendation. Paul is such a great wrestler and always so much fun to be with and get to grips with!! Had a wonderful time and will happily recommend him to anyone who enjoys a great wrestle with a real great guy.
Had the pleasure of meeting Paul yesterday. He's a great guy, powerful, strong, very skilled wrestler but totally safe and sane - got some amazing holds which will really test you but also respects limits. He's also a really genuinely nice guy who loves his wrestling and enjoys having fun as the big bad heel! Highly recommended and hope for a rematch!
Warkscub is recommended by dadwrestle
What a great guy! Its always the best fun to roll with this big bear wrestler!
Now this wrestler never fails to deliver on the mats!! He travelled down to Barnet for an afternoon session. We got up a good sweat, and wrestled a good few hours. Great fun; totally reliable!
REALLY enjoyed locking up with this great heavyweight on his mats! We had a perfect Brir Pro session, he looks good in the gear and delivers on the mats. Definitely safe and sane, and the perfect host! Rematch will follow soon, I hope!! Dont miss out on this Midlands rassler!
dadwrestle is recommended by mikeswuk
he is experienced and safe, with a wicked sense of humour on the mats. don't be put off by size - he will give you a good time, although try to stay on top! highly reliable and recommendable
mikeswuk is recommended by dadwrestle
I have NO IDEA why there is no recommendation from me to Mike!!! We have been wrestling for more years than either of us care to remember! He has never backed off from wrestling guys my size, and sessions on the mats have ALWAYS been safe, sane and fun. Hes quite the skilled wrestler now, and I have to watch my step not to get caught. He is also one of the best most patient teachers!
100% PLATINUM STAR RECOMMENDATION
DAMN! He got a sub out of me!
stockyfr is recommended by dadwrestle
Simply one of the best! I think I was the first to face this AMAZING guy at a meet in Manchester! Awesome skills, able to adjust to make the fight enjoyable. Great physique to match his skills. Off the mats he brings French charm and a winning smile!! What more can you ask? 100% PLATINUM STAR!! Don't miss a chance to roll with this superb wrestler!
dadwrestle is recommended by KiwiWrestler
A great wrestler and a gentleman (off the mats). Very easy to setup our meeting. I unfortunately came down with a cold, which I did warn DadWrestle about. He was happy to still meet. He was very accommodating of my weakened physical state and took it easy on me. A skilled wrestler, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him and I look forward to a tough wrestle next time. Highly recommended.
KiwiWrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
A bit last minute, but we realised that we could meet up while this wrestler was in London. Sadly, a nasty cold on his part meant we couldn't go as hard as we might have wanted, but he proved without doubt that he is a skilled practitioner on the mats. We both got some submissions, but his were stylishly applied! I hope I get the chance to wrestle him again when we are both fit! Great conversationalist off the mats, too. 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation
dadwrestle is recommended by barcoded
A short notice message enabled a meeting! DW checked I was OK and kept pushing me and testing me out then pushed more. He is a hard man, with lots more to give and so Obviously very skilled and tactical. He’s lots of fun, thoughtful and I’m taking note of under arm tackle.
barcoded is recommended by dadwrestle
After a while chatting we managed to fix a last minute meet up! It involved him driving quite some way, but he arrived spot on time ready to wrestle. True commitment! We had a good two hours wrestling with this worthy tough jobber taking his punishment and coming back for more time after time. A great way to spend an evening. Safe, sane and imaginative. I look forward to getting into the gear again for Round 2! GOLD STAR Recommended!
NLdnguy is recommended by dadwrestle
I think this was this rookie's first wrestle! Easy to make arrangements, prompt, safe and sane. Facing a guy my size for your first mat encounter was pretty formidable, but he kept on coming back for me. Quick learner too. Dont be fooled by his build; he's fit and strong. A really good conversationalist off the mats too, which is always a bonus. 100% HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
dadwrestle is recommended by minichub7
Fantastic time wrestling this absolute beast
Arrived right on time and had a friendly chat before hitting the mats and damn i was outclassed
Brilliant learning experience. 2 hours of sweaty submission and i think i can safely say that i didn't stand a chance
minichub7 is recommended by dadwrestle
What a way to celebrate being back in UK! Met up with this big, beefy wrestler at Barnet. He traveled some distance to be there, but was spot on time. Arrangements had been easy to make. He may to new to the wrestling scene, but he's a natural. He uses his weight well, and is fast when he wants to be! We had over two hours of sweaty submission fun. Watch out for this guy! If he challenges you, accept! You won't be disappointed. I really hope Round 2 happens SOON! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation.
dadwrestle is recommended by Cstar
A good guy to wrestle. I always thought breast squeezes and stomach claws didn't do much - I was wrong! Will be happy to wrestle again in future.
Cstar is recommended by dadwrestle
My last wrestle in my Oz trip! This guy kindly came out to my hotel the night before I flew home. Easy to arrange the meet; prompt and good company. Safe, sane. This wrestler has a strong defensive style. We rolled for around an hour. I think I might just have been a bit big for him, but he certainly fought back!!
dadwrestle is recommended by geewrestler
What can I say that hasn’t already been said.
Easy to organise
Ticks every box that we talk about and one of the best guys that I has been out with afterwards beer and meal. I’m so glad I made the effort. He is a guy not to be missed. I had a iffy shoulder and he accommodated for it well. 2 full hours of wrestling plus a massage at the end. I felt so relaxed at the end. Hopefully our paths will cross again one day.
One of the biggest recommendation I can muster
geewrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
This guy has been on my radar for years! Look at his pics to see why! The reality was even better!! One strong, tough, safely aggressive wrestler who brings it all to the mats. Despite his difficult shoulder, the fight was fast and furious. Just what I had hoped for. He looks great in gear and is built like prime beef! Off the mats, good, fun conversation. The rematch MUST happen. 100% PLATINUM recommendation. A wrestler not to be missed!
dadwrestle is recommended by Davey83
What a superb wrestler and gentlemen!
I had the absolute pleasure of tussling with this living legend. Super strong and tremendously skilled, he constantly kept me on my toes and gave me a real going over. The next morning I'm feeling the satisfying soreness of a night of terrific wrestling. He was gracious enough to also share a few tips and tricks. Most enjoyable, and an outstanding chap. An absolute pleasure to wrestle. Thank you so much, mate. Couldn't recommend higher.
Davey83 is recommended by dadwrestle
Wow! In my last week in Australia, I meet one of the toughest opponents yet! This is one strong, determined wrestler. A great combination of height and weight, combined with an amazing pain threshold makes him one hell of a tough guy! A really enjoyable fight, even though I got my arse kicked! The nicest guy off the mats. Safe and sane. Easy to make arrangements. Meet this wrestler if you get the chance. 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION! I will be coming back for a rematch!
dadwrestle is recommended by Long for this
For starters let me say what a privilege & absolute pleasure it was for me to spend 2 weeks travelling with this exceptional fella.
I wouldn't have believed that 2 blokes from opposite sides of the world who had never met before could hit it off so well had I not just experienced it.
dadwrestle is everything you could possibly look for in a man …...charming , witty , intelligent & above all an absolute demon to wrestle ! For 2 old bulls to roll the way we did was just so exciting & I can't thank him enough for his encouragement & patience .
It is easy to see why this man deserves the reputation he has built up.
Wrestlers it'll be your great loss if you miss the opportunity to meet this amazing bloke.
Thank you my friend for such a great experience in so many ways !!!
Long for this is recommended by dadwrestle
I am not sure how I can adequately describe this guy! He was my travelling companion for two weeks down the east coast of Australia. He is one big, strong, determined wrestler who still calls himself a beginner but is a born natural on the mats. The expression is "as strong as an ox", and this man is! Great arms and a barrel chest to die for. He has a killer forearm choke too! I could not have asked for a better mate to roll with, to be a tourist with, and simply to hang out with! He learns fast and keeps on coming back for more. In fact, he's insatiable when it comes to the wrestling game! If we didn't live continents apart we would be hitting the mats regularly. If this man challenges you...ACCEPT! You won't regret it, I assure you. 100% PLATINUM Recommendation....and more! This guy is the best!
dadwrestle is recommended by Canberrawrestler
What a man. I only had a brief time to visit this beast of a man, but we managed to have match. But it was all I needed to learn that this was one great wrestler. Powerful, knowledgable,and I imagine could wrestle for hours. This big man is fit. I recommend anyone who thinks they can wrestle to test themselves out with dadwrestle. Not only is he an amazing wrestler, but he is one great guy off the mats as well. Take him on, you will not regret it.
Canberrawrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
We didn't think that we were going to be able to meet up during my brief visit to Canberra, but things changed and we got a brief match in my hotel. This is one big, tough, bull of a guy! Just my sort of wrestler! Next time will be in a mat room! We were well matched, both taking submissions. Safe and sane but with a good aggressive edge. Don't miss your chance of taking this man on! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation. Roll on Round 2!
dadwrestle is recommended by JNNSWWJJ
Wrestled this Pom today and found him to be strong and fit and hard to punish, even made me tap out!
JNNSWWJJ is recommended by dadwrestle
Hell, this was one of the most exciting wrestlers I have ever encountered! He drove over three hours to meet up. There is commitment! He is bull of a build, in great physical shape, and as strong as an ox! That said, he is fast and agile on the mats moving his opponent and himself with ease. It was a tough, hard fight, but always safe and sane. I had to cheat HUGELY to get one submission! And those who now me know I can bend the rules and cheat! I suffered for it, as you might imagine! This must rank as one of the best wrestling sessions of my mat career. Just a great guy....don't miss your chance of meeting up with him. 100% PLATUNUM Recommendation. A wrestler not to be missed.

Locked up with this big, solid wrestler!! We had a blast! Well matched weight wise, it was a full on heavyweight contest! Submissions on both sides. Safe, sane and nicely aggressive in his fight style. Easy to arrange the meet. Punctual. This was one hot session on the mats. If you get the chance, take this bull on! 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDED
Round 2! Even better than Round 1! This is one tough, rough wrestler with plenty of stamina! A good thing amongst the crowd of "No Showers" in Sydney! One of the best!

fantastic guy, and though were unable to wrestle it was great to establish coms in person and solidify a match will happen in the future .
dadwrestle is recommended by Tripolar
I had a great match with dadwrestle on his trip to Brisbane (in a 3 way battle with long for this). His experience showed through in the end. No matter what I tried, he would always end up in control. I’m not sure how long I was trapped in his scissors but it felt like an eternity. A completely fun and safe match. He knew he had a size advantage (and used it to its full potential) but also let this small guy have a few opportunities to try some moves too.
A great guy off the mat too. Have a wrestle with him if you already haven’t.
Tripolar is recommended by dadwrestle
Every now and again you get to face a skilled wrestler! This is just one of those men! I met him on my visit to Brisbane. A charming man off the mats, he is fast, agile and skilled on them. His battery of moves and counter moves just has to be experienced! I thoroughly enjoyed this encounter. Totally safe and sane as an opponent. NOT TO BE MISSED! 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION

Had a great wrestle with dadwrestle today. Easy to make a meet up work. Fully committed to the wrestling scene. A great bloke thats safe and sane on the mat as well as being a great host off the mat. Very skilled as well, so glad I have wrestled the living legend as well.
albeck is recommended by dadwrestle
This guy looked just what one might hope for in a wrestler as he came in. Big build, broad shouldered, rugged handsome look. He didn't disappoint when he stepped on to the mats. Tough, feisty, he delivered a good sweaty workout. Safe and sane and totally committed to the wrestling game. I just hope there's a chance of a rematch at some stage. If he challenges you, accept. You won't regret it! 100% RECOMMENDED

Delighted to be able to meet again this legend of the Australian mat world! As ever, strong, tough with a nice safely aggressive edge! I hope the rematch comes soon! PLATINUM STAR RECOMMENDATION
I wrestled this Aussie star years back in the Rochdale ring. Strong, tough, and well into submission style, he was a joy to wrestle. Tough and intense on the mats, good conversation and fun off them. Only wish we were nearer to fight again! 100% Recommended!

We arranged a three way wrestling meet with Long for This, another big strong wrestler from Meetfighters. After flying from UK via Dubai , this solidly muscled and powerful man subdued me in more than an hour of give and take struggling. Experience overcame what I had to bring to this battle. We had a great morning getting to know each other's stories and realising that the world is a very small place . Meet up with Dadwrestle if you get a chance... not easily conquered or forgotten.

Was delighted to be able to lock up with this well built guy! The pics don't lie. He has amazing upper body strength! Nice arms too! We wrestled more promission, but it was great fun. He keeps on coming back for more! Off the mats a fascinating guy with lots of good conversation, humour and interests! Totally safe and sane. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
dadwrestle is recommended by Takemeon
Meeting Dadwrestle was a great experience. At first I was concerned about the size difference between us, but once we starting wrestling my fears immediately vanished. Not only is he a great wrestler, he is also a great teacher, story teller and very funny. Definitely would wrestle him again without hesitation.
Takemeon is recommended by dadwrestle
Now there was a considerable weight difference between us, but this feisty wrestler faced the challenge. We had a long roll on the mats. He is MUCH stronger than you might expect, and has excellent stamina. He is also a very quick learner. He still calls himself a rookie, but that is not going to last long! Off the mats we had great conversation and not a little laughter! This was a fun meet! Catch this guy if you get the chance! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Well this legend was my introduction to wrestling in Australia! I could not have done better! Getting past the challenge of his height, weight and reach was a problem lol. This is one skilled, tough, fast wrestler. Totally safe as an opponent. A delight to wrestle; not to be missed. He also has a wicked sense of fun and humour. It was a privilege to hit the mats with him. 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation

Round 3!! We kind of opened the "London roll" meeting by being the first wrestlers on the mat. Dadwrestle is one of my first opponents when i started my fighting "career". As always a pleasure to wrestle with and to talk to. I can recommend him fully and i am sure there will be a round 4 with this big and strong wrestler!!!
Had another great match with dadwrestle on his mats. What a great wrestler he is: big, strong and skilled. Our matches are always challenging and intense! Definitely want to meet him again for Round 3!!
I met this guy during my stay in London. Strong and skillfull wrestler always safe and sane. Nice guy both on and off the mats. Can fully recommend him! Like to wrestle him again!

Had the pleasure of a long awaited rematch with this skilled grappler! Since our last meeting he has piled on the skill and expertise!! This was a a REAL wrestling challenge. He's a safe, strong heavyweight who is a delight to wrestle! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation
No longer a rookie! Instead a muscled, strong, very skilled grappler!! We hit my mats and I discovered I was up against a wrestler with a very high pain threshold and an amoury of moves.A joy to wrestle: safe, sane, up for an intense, tough fight. I dont think I have enjoyed a submission bout so much in a long time. This is one top class, trained wrestler, ready to take the bout to whatever level you want. 100% recommendation, 5 star rating! Although I have to admit, I came out in second place, I cant wait for Round 3!!!!
I met this wrestler yesterday in London. He's totally reliable time wise, and a great guy on and off the mats. As a wrestler he's strong, tough and tenacious. Don't underestimate this "rookie"; given some more experience he will be a real challenge! I look forward to a rematch SOON!

Finally got to meet and wrestle another of the big legends from Meetfighter! Dadwrestle made me feel welcome on arrival and it was like we had know each other for ages. He is obviously a big tough guy to wrestle but always safe and enjoyable on the mats. Looking forward to round 2 with the big man!

Well Dublin is a nice place to get ANOTHER beating from this powerhouse of a lightweight! I really should learn.....but then I would miss out on one of the best experiences on offer in the wrestling world!
We should be careful what we wish for! Met up again with this star of the wrestling world on his home turf! I will let you guess the outcome!! Wrestling this guy is such fun and a superb challenge. Off the mats, a great talker and a delightful companion over a drink.
WOW! Now this is one class act! Met this awesome grappler at a meet in Manchester. He a blast of a time....being completely owned on the mats! This wrestler is skilled, fast and fun! He has a tight, muscled build which he uses to great advantage. Safe, sane but competitive he delivers an intense highly enjoyable match.

Met this great guy today for the first time! I was not disappointed! He looks great in gear, tough, strong and fit and up for a good hard wrestle. He claims to be a novice, but dont be fooled, he's a natural. There really has to be a rematch...SOON!
dadwrestle is recommended by latestarter
A few folk have suggested to me that I would enjoy meeting up with this big, strong amiable guy so when our travel plans brought us, relatively, close together it was an opportunity I couldn't resist. They were not wrong!!
Despite the obvious weight and experience advantage this "gentle giant" allowed me to think that I was in with a chance (occasionally) whilst, at the same time. leaving me in no doubt who was in control. I certainly was not complaining. A great way to spend a couple of hours He gets a big thumbs up from me. Thanks " Dad"
latestarter is recommended by dadwrestle
As others have said, this might be a "late start", but this wrestler has certainly made up for lost time! He kindly rearranged travel plans to be in Leeds so we could wrestle. Easy to fix details, we were soon stripped for action. It was fast and furious, despite the weight differential. He has a high pain threshold and endless stamina. A few hours of wrestling flew past! He is good defensive wrestler, and given the opportunity, is fast to take the opportunity of a quick submission. Dont miss your chance if challenged! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by CambsWrestler
dadwrestle is a very feisty wrestler and a genial host. His size and incredible experience made him a real challenge but he was accommodating to my relative lack of technique and, as a consequence, we had a good, sweaty, long back and forth encounter. A genuinely decent bloke and an impressive wrestler; I recommend him.
CambsWrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
Its sometimes quite hard to convince a lighter guy to wrestle. After a bit of chat we fixed on a date. We had a real blast!! Boxer v Wrestler! The guy has great upper body strength and biceps to be proud of! Totally safe and sane but with a born fighters aggression. He wasn't going to let me win simply because I was the bigger wrestler! We filled a good two sweaty hours with action. Subs on both sides, and some good body punches exchanged. If you get a challenge from this fighter...SAY YES! You will not regret it. He's learning fast, wrestlers. 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation. Roll on Round 2!
dadwrestle is recommended by Bodie101
Met my old friend again yesterday, true gent as always, still great on the mats, keen as ever and as skilled... This warrior of wrestling just goes on, putting a lot of the younger guys in the shade... Looking forwards to lots more, a wrestler not to be missed, catch him while you can... I hear a whisper of retirement, but this wrestling community would truly lose a great champ,, although i'd still be up for meeting for meals and coffee and keep in touch,,, maybe that way i won't be stiff as i am today...grrr, consider myself worked over, and i'm no jobber...
Bodie101 is recommended by dadwrestle
Well this great guy has certainly not lost it! After a break of a few years we wrestled again. Hes strong, tough, and a nice slowly paced grappler. But also the best of hosts! A session of sweat and taps on both sides filled a warm afternoon. This man is one of the best!!!!
Wrestled this great guy a few times over the years! His pics do not lie! This is one awesome guy. Strong, skilled and tough but safe and sane. One of the nicest guys I have met off the mats. Great to see him back wrestling! 5 Star Recommendation! A grappler not to be missed!
dadwrestle is recommended by Enforme
My comments are in continuation with most recommandations addressed to Dadwrestle, being very fast and flexible considering his weight and his age (not that younger myself, lol), the way he can wrestle with you with care, energy and humour. Important too, with him, the opponent is also the partner of the tough action. We sweated quite a lot in the great Barnet facilities, with shared fun within this great time. I really hope we shall meet in a near future, if possible with a larger period of time to socialise with this interesting, sensible, well balanced man. All the best Paul.

I had the complete and utter pleasure of meeting up and wrestling this muscled Frenchman on a Bank Holiday Monday. Transport for London did its best to mess up our arrangements, but in the end it worked out fine. This is one strong, muscled, intense wrestler! The sweat flowed from the start! Despite a considerable weight difference there were submissions on both side (beware his choke; its lethal lol) There was no resting in this match! We matched each other in stamina! A delight to wrestle: good, interesting conversation off the mats. We will fight again...SOON! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation!

After a bit of a break, was delighted to lock up again with this feisty, strong, muscled wrestler! TOTALLY reliable, safe and sane. He's as tough as ever, strong and agile. A great evening on the mats! Again SOON!
After a far too long break, hit the mats again with this wrestler! Strong as ever, fun to fight! His face bar is to be avoided at all costs LOL! Safe, sane, tough, fun....what more can you ask?
June 2014, three great choke submissions out of me!
Time to edit this! As predicted, this wrestler is fast gaining in skill and strength! He has a mean side headlock and choke! Great fun to wrestle. He's getting the subs more and more!
Make sure you fix a wrestle with this guy! Hes strong, agile and determined!! we have met on mats many times and its always been a great tussle. Reliable, safe and sane.

After a long gap, in which we kept missing each other, we snatched a quick hour on the mats. Great as ever to wrestle, and "little" Tony has beefed up! Nice strong counter attacks despite the weight difference. Don't miss your chance of wrestling this guy. You won't be disappointed! 100% RECOMMENDED!
Impromptu tussle with this "little" powerhouse today! He's put on some muscle since out last meet, and uses it to effect! Despite the considerable weight difference,this wrestler just keeps on coming back for more. Great fun to be with, on and off the mats! Roll on the next time!
After ages chatting on line we finally got to meet up at Barnet. Despite weight difference we had a great set to on the mats. Reliable, safe, sane and fun. Watch out for the choke!

Second time was a charm...Got the opportunity to get dadwrestle on the mats again. His power and strength seem to be getting stronger as the years are passing. Great stamina. His gut still takes a beating with powerful blows. Look forward to even more meetings in the future big guy. Thanks for setting up the matroom again. Cheers buddy.
Had the wonderful pleasure of locking up with this beefy, strong, powerful English bloke for a great wrestling match at the north end of London. He has a massive beefy belly and loves trading rough gut punches. He is very skilled and tough on the mat too. He took care of booking a private wrestling studio with mats which had a shower room. Don't get fooled by his gentleman demeanor, he's a rough n tough grappler who will test your skills. Look forward to more matches in the future buddy!

The long awaited return match! This is truly one of the best guys I have met. Built like a pocket tank, he's fast and tough. We wrestled for nigh on three hours. His punching skills have not diminished!! A perfect way to spend a few winter hours!! Off the mats there's intelligent conversation and humour. I just hope that this becomes a regular fixture! 5 STAR RECOMMENDATION!
Had the chance to lock up with this guy while he was in London. He may be short, but he's a pocket tank!! Great solid build, well muscled and strong. He's a skilled wrestler and takes some handling on the ground. He uses his weight well. Perfect opponent, considerate and fun. Be warned, he packs a punch if you agree to gut punching! I can't wait for the return bout!
dadwrestle is recommended by Scissorvictim
We had a hotel wrestle. Due to the setting and disparity in size, we went for a less competitive match which we both thoroughly enjoyed. Dadwrestle has remarkably strong thighs and you'll know about it if you get caught in them.
The match was easy to arrange. He's friendly and easy to chat to. No hesitation in recommending.
Scissorvictim is recommended by dadwrestle
Due to the considerable weight difference we settled for a scissor fight! Now this wrestler has one of the strongest pair of thighs I have EVER come across. We battled for a good few hours! Really easy to fix up the meet. Punctual and good to chat to. But above all great fun to wrestle! If you get trapped between his legs, get ready to tap! Looks good in his gear too! This meet certainly made my overnight stay in Leeds worthwhile!! 100% Recommended 5 Star Rating!
dadwrestle is recommended by WeeJimmie
Yes, it's all true what the guys say about him – he's formidable. A wily old fighter with a startling array of sly moves and the strength and energy to go on using them for three hours. He pretty much wiped the floor with me and I can honestly say I enjoyed every minute. Maybe even picked up a trick or two. Thanks Paul – until the next time.
WeeJimmie is recommended by dadwrestle
We had been chatting for years and at last had the opportunity to lock up! Punctual, safe and sane. That's the boring bit over! Quiet, determined, coming back for more over and over. This "wee" guy is strong, tough and certainly no pushover. He has considerable upper body strength which he puts to good use. There were submissions on both sides, I have to admit. A perfect way to spend a cold April morning in London!!! I hope and trust this was the first of a succession of fights!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 5 Star rating. Dont miss your chance of wrestling this guy!

This man is a beast. If u are a weak twink, move along. He is so strong and so skilled. We had one of the best wrestling experiences of my life. He is a perfect gentleman, on and off the mats, but he wrestles to win and u better bring ur best game, or he'll destroy u. I can't say enough good things about him. If I ever get back to the UK, he's at the top of my list. Love this Brit...big time...
dadwrestle is recommended by Crushhhh
Was a bit daunted about fighting Dadwrestle given his superior size and experience but he turned out to be a great opponent. He is fit and stong - and would be able to hold his own against wrestlers half his age. I managed to get some subs off him too which was a bonus to a tough, hard fought match. A really nice guy to have a chat with off the mats.
Crushhhh is recommended by dadwrestle
The two subs I got off this awesome wrestler I had to cheat to achieve (what, you cheat, I hear you cry!). The multiple submission taken from me speak of the strength, skill, speed and safe aggression of this superb grappler. One of the most enjoyable mat sessions I have experienced in years. 100% Recommended 5 Star opponent!
I had long wanted to face this wrestler on the mats! He didn't disappoint!! Great host; easy to fix date, time and location. Safe, sane and reliable. This only tells half the story. He's in great shape and is VERY strong.... watch out for his scissors. We wrestled hard for a few hours and submissions went either way. Extremely enjoyable match, which I think tested both of us. This is a wrestler not to be missed. Off the mats, good, interesting conversation. 100% gold star recommendation! Roll on Round 2!

Had fantastic bout with Dadwrestle. A man who not only knows his wrestling and as strong as an ox but, a great teacher too. He put me through my paces and gave me the best workout ever but also, helping and encouraging too.
Before, during and after the bout he was an absolute gentleman who appreciated I had not wrestled for a while and took that into account.
I'm looking forward to more bouts with him but one thing for sure he has inspired me to get back out there and wrestle.
Dalebreak is recommended by dadwrestle
A fantastic evening on the mats with this strong, tough, fun wrestler! Easy to arrange timings; safe and sane. His heart is so into the old Brit Pro scene, he even looks like a star of Saturday afternoon WofS ring action. I can't recommend this guy too highly! 5 GOLD STAR RECOMMENDED!

dadwrestle is recommended by Navyguy
UPDATED Recommendation. FIGHT 3. 09 JAN 18:
Another great fight session with Dadwrestle. Rough, brutal, back and forth multiple submission fight. He remains a very formidable opponent who comes to fight and is all business on the mats. Hits hard and fast and can submit you with brutal punches or a variety of submission holds. A bull on the mats who comes right at you to punish you. He is an educated, highly intelligent, accomplished and worldly professional who is great to talk and spend time with Post-fight. Fight him, and thank me later! Highest recommendation.
Had a great 2 hour multiple submission wrestling match with dad wrestle at his flat in Lindon. Good back and forth wrestling with submissions about even both ways. Dont let him get on top of you. He's a big tough skilled wrestler with a lot of moves and a devastating punch. Nice large mat room in central London. Hospitable host and a great guy on and off the mats. Can't wait for a rematch on my next trip to London. Highly recommended.

Round 4: Despite his tendency to arrive in UK bringing snow, we hit the Barnet mats again! TOTALLY reliable, packing an even harder punch. Nearly 3 hours of mat action! Who could ask for more? A real star of the wrestling world!
Round 3; the BEST YET! I would like to say and easy win for me, but it would not be true. Never underestimate this guy!! Fast, strong with killer punches. We had over 2 hours hard ground wrestling that was pretty even the whole session. Hugely enjoyable; safe and sane but aggressive as it should be. This is one of my all time favourite opponents!! A great guy too off the mats. Roll on the next fight! 5 STAR HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This was a match up easily arranged. What I didnt realise was that I would be facing a proper powerhouse of a wrestler. We had two solid hours of full on submission wrestling. Hes strong, tough and skilled on the mats and delivers an intense, fun and sane bout. If you agree to body punching, watch out! He's one hell of a puncher! Safe, sane and reliable. One of the best wrestlers I have met on my mats in a long time. Roll on his next visit to London!! 100% recommendation!
The return match! As tough as ever, this wrestler has lost weight, and looks good on it! Just as aggressive, just as sound a puncher!! It was an intense session with subs on both sides. This guy is a class act!
dadwrestle is recommended by SWInnes
An easy meet to arrange and my first intro to the Barnet mat room.
A strong, experienced wrestler who worked me hard and made me work just as hard. A tough contest all round but safe, sane and fun.
Off the mats a great conversationalist and made me feel at ease upon meeting.
Fully recommend meeting this quality individual.
SWInnes is recommended by dadwrestle
One amazing wrestler! Yes, he's a novice in that hes new to the scene, but in no way is this guy a novice skill wise!! Strong, agile, fast and sanely aggressive, he took control of our mat fight with ease! He has been able coached since joining up and clearly learns quickly. An absolute pleasure to wrestle. I did get a few taps out of him, but this is one classy fighter. Off the mats, there's great conversation and a great sense of humour. I just hope I get the chance to roll with this wrestler again. 5 STAR GOLD RECOMMENDATION. A wrestler not to be missed!
dadwrestle is recommended by Seniorboxer
Dad was one of two here who wanted to meet me at an early time so that I could plan my visit to London. And he took me to one of the famous venues I wanted to see, Barnet mat room. Here you have the space I missed in my first few fights I had. What a great experience with him, he really knows what to do on the mat when I just try. His holds, especially his armholds, once you are into there is no escape from it. We nearly had five hours with the time on bus and tube, so I am ready for round two. There was all the fun you can have with am man on the mat so let us do it again.
Seniorboxer is recommended by dadwrestle
This guy is one of the strongest men I have ever faced on the mats! He has amazing upper body strength! We had been chatting some time on line, so it was easy to fix a date to meet when he was visiting London. Despite the best efforts of the train service to mess up our arrangements, we got to Barnet and hit the mats wrestling for well on 3 hours. He might not be the best technical wrestler but he uses his brute power to good effect! TOTALLY safe and sane! There were subs on both sides, but I think I must admit he had the edge on me! Off the mats a total delight to chat with!! Roll on Round 2! 5 STAR RECOMMENDATION! A joy to meet!

We had fun after we wrestled to.
Would like to meet again.

Meeting this guy was easy as, we fixed a time and day and he showed up, generally nice bloke and a talker which is great!
The match started off from a normal roll about and then it turned into a proper brawl! He was strong and carefull you dont get caught in his body scissors because they had me tapping, got a few pins and submission out of him aswell so dont think you were always the champ in this match ;) love to meet again, if you havent faced him yet then you need to message him and sort a match out.
Thanks for a fun and strong bout mate.
RedUK is recommended by dadwrestle
Its an old maxim: "Never underestimate your opponent"! I did, and you could say I paid for it. Easy to arrange a bout; clear instructions and pre- match chat. But this wrestle is much stronger and tougher than he either tells you or believes of himself! Hes got a good muscled body which he uses to good effect. He can do pro, yes, but he's no push over in submission wrestling either. This was a highly enjoyable match with subs on both sides and some good pro action thrown in. He also has great stamina. So it's roll on Round 2! Beware, I am prepared for you this time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 5 star wrestler!
dadwrestle is recommended by QuinnUK
Had several matches with this bull of a man over the years. It took is a while to click but once we did there was no looking back. Never disappoints - An easy recommendation.
Update - February 2018 - Yet another hard workout with this legend of a man. Hard competitive wrestling at its best. He is just unrelenting. You have to get him down and keep him down cos once he gets the upper hand he is not an easy man to shift. Not showy but the real deal.
QuinnUK is recommended by dadwrestle
Anyone remember Mighty John Quinn from WofS days? Well hes reincarnated! This is one awesome power house! Tall, strong aggressive in his attack. He's a GREAT wrestle! Was good to be on the mats with him after a break. Dont miss your chance of taking him on. You wont regret it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
A regular opponent over the years! Tough, strong, sanely aggressive....what more could you ask!? Looks good in his gear; always delivers a fun competitive bout. Looking forward to facing him again soon either on the mats or in the Walthamstow ring! 100% HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Dadwrestler is a friendly person, I of course also 😂 we already had easy language difficulties and always had laughter, with hand and foot 🖐👣 it worked nevertheless. When we arrived at the marsh room near Barnet, we were on the point. Dadwrestler is a strong fighter, if he can grab one, it is after a short time out, he has also many fights behind him, these are just the experience, I'm still green behind the 👂, he gave me as well. Some handles shown ... Thank you ... if you come to London, you should make a fight with him, which is an enrichment. For Dadwrestler, I can only say thumbs up 👍. A real British wrestler.

Round 2: Barnet mat room again for a hot, sweaty, aggressive afternoon session! This wrestler never fails to deliver! He's bloody strong, so don't underestimate him! Good subs fight with tap outs on both sides, but I have to admit, I think he took more subs off me this time. Always safe and sane, but tough. A delight off the mats, as I said before. Here's to Round 3!! I can't recommend this fighter too highly!
We had been chatting for quite some time, so making arrangements to meet was easy. This encounter was all I had hoped for, and more! This wrestler is like a pocket tank! A good, strong, tough build, he is fast and skilled on the mats. He keeps coming back for more too. We took our fight from his hotel room to the mats at Barnet. As neither of us had much of the other's language, there could have been a problem, but there was none! Off the mats there was much laughter as we made ourselves understood. If there is such a thing, this was a perfect match!! Don't miss your chance of wrestling this delightful German fighter! 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION!
dadwrestle is recommended by The Enigma
Enigma and the Dad have battled, he is a good strong wrestler and he is not intimidated by anyone, a top wrestler indeed and he owned the lad at the end of this contest. He worked his lad until he twitched. He is a total bloke, dominates his man and owns him good
The Enigma is recommended by dadwrestle
This is one gold star, top wrestler! Met him in his mat room in past. He delivers a tough, intense hard bout, but always safe and sane. He's always a joy to wrestle, imaginative and with great stamina. I owned him, and milked him. So, if you get the chance, accept his challenge! You won't regret it! 100% recommended!!

Had loads of fun, really kind guy off the mats but a beast on them who made me know who's boss :) Safe and sane but pushed me which was good; did loads of things I love, especially being smashed and smothered by his gut, and also introduced me to a couple of things. Very much looking forward to going back for more!

Had the pleasure of locking up with this extremely feisty jobber yesterday! Easy to make arrangements with. Safe and sane with a great attitude to the wrestling game! He took his punishment well, and fought back. Fun on and off the mats, excellent conversation too. Have no hesitation at all in HIGHLY RECOMMENDING this guy.

Dadwrestle is my first brit to roll around with. And I would enjoy another go of it with him. Dadwrestle was my first match at Fall wrestlefest of '17. Great guy off the match and has some good trash talk on the mat. And it helps that he can actually back it up.
vocaljock is recommended by dadwrestle
This wrestler must be one of the nicest guys around! He made me feel very welcome at Wrestlefest! Despite a big weight difference he accepted a challenge. I had to work for the submissions...his defense was hard to break! A great mat session. Off the mats he has a good sense of fun and a great sense of humour. 100% Gold Star recommendation
dadwrestle is recommended by BullCop
dadwrestle is brimming with high-energy aggression that he thoughtfully adjusts to an opponent. I thoroughly enjoyed locking up with him and measuring myself against this highly skilled man. Our first match was a prelude to future battles. Off the mats, the camaraderie was natural and genuine. This man is recommended highly for serious combatants.

Had the great pleasure of meeting this handsome Southern Gentleman on one of his visits to London. The pics don't lie! He's got a great physique and looks good in his wrestling gear. Easy to fix a meet with, and a charmer on and off the mats. It was the end of his vacation so we had a a gentle roll rather than a full on scrap. Was huge fun! Will definitely be looking to hook up with this guy again. Highly Recommended!

This was the spur of the moment chance to wrestle dadwrestle and boy was it worth it. We have messaged each other which feels like ages and have never quite fixed a time which was right to both or had a venue so when this chance came to me I was in the car and off to meet dadwrestle as soon as I could cos not much time to spare. All I can say is a great opponent to wrestle it was a brief but great bout . I knew I had been in a contest and was up such an experienced wrestler but gave it my best shot. I had to submit in the end. Great bloke on and off the mats safe and sane. Recommend this wrestler give him a wrestle you won't be disappointed. Bring on the rematch

Sometimes the very last minute arrangements turn out to be the best! This wrestler and I had been trying to fix a date to meet for years. We suddenly realised we could make it happen, if only for a brief mat session. I certainly was in NO WAY disappointed!!! This is one strong tough guy. He is a natural on the mats, even though he claims to be a rookie. Looks great in gear and keeps coming back for more. Totally safe and sane, but a determined opponent. This is a definite GOLD STAR Recommendation. If you get the chance, take this wrestler on!

Whenever I get to wrestle this star of the mats I come away thinking that this has been one of the best mat sessions I have had. He adapts to his opponents skills and style preferences, making it a good experience. I cannot recommend him too highly!!!
Just wanted to note, after a great rematch, that this wrestler is really muscled up these days! As strong and determined as ever, he's one of the best around. Always safe and sane, but delivers EVERY time! Off mats, a good conversationalist, fun company!
What ever you do, dont miss the opportunity of wrestling this guy! Awesome body, strong, skilled and a thoroughly reliable person.

Easy to fix time and place, totally reliable. Off the mats charming and interested! Just hope I get another chance to lock up with this star! 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION! Roll on Round 2!
dadwrestle is recommended by Sir David
August 2017. After almost 4 years the rematch took place. Dadwrestle waa good enough to acknowledge my move into the pro form of the sport and as usual let his mouth do the talking before the bout. What a contest it was. There was a few times the big man from down South believed he was invincible and i took pleasure in proving him wrong. The next time we meet is for our big pro ring match and i know that the big man will do all he can to ensure he comes out on top. Im ready for you when you are and this is gonna be an epic battle. Stay tuned.
Round 2, Nov 27 2013– Was intended to be a hard wrestle between the big man and the big fella, but due to a non-wrestling injury we were unable to have the wrestle we both wanted. And as I didn't want Dadwrestle to have a wasted journey, we had a light roll around, which still turned into a big struggle.
Round 3 for the decider bout, this time its in the ring, all out war.---
well what can i say about this bout. Last minute but well worth it, told me he would be in charge but like the big man says, this story isnt over,,,,,not for a long shot paul ha ha
see u next time
Sir David is recommended by dadwrestle
This star of the northern pro style circuit invited me to a meet at Pippa's. I am no pro wrestler it proves!! LOL He gave me some tips and a few moves, but I don't think I am going to be a Brit Pro star after all. BUT if your thing is pro, then this wrestler is not to be missed!
After a LONG gap, but lots a wild trash talking, we met again today on his home turf! Damn, what a difference! MUCH stronger and master of the art of pro. The fight got pretty rough and was a prelude to a "decider" in the ring. Honours pretty even, but there is no way that I intend to let this so called Knight of the Ring take home a win! Watch this space!
Round 2:sadly we couldn't fight with the intensity we wanted as this guy had a nasty injury to his leg from a work related incident. That said, it was a tough, hard battle! So the "decider" will come later! But we KNOW who will win!!
Met this wrestler today in a last minute arrangement. After a lot of chat on line, he delivered on the mats! Hes keen, keeps on coming back for more, and was safe and sane to grapple! I suspect the story isnt over!!!

After what must have been over a year sending messages, our paths finally crossed.
I concur with what everyone has already wrote, scroll down his recommendations to get a true impression of the man. He's everything everyone has written.
I enjoyed our couple of bouts and would certainly look forward to doing it again sometime. Thanks.

Wow, has this wrestler come on since our last encounter! Got to wrestle him at a small meet at Pippa's. Lots of new skills and moves and even more determination!! Watched him do a pro match in the ring too. One class act! Don't miss the chance of wrestling him!! GOLD STAR Recommendation!
We had chatted for what seemed years on line! At last I got to wrestle this big guy at a group meet at Barnet! I certainly wasn't disappointed! He might be in the early stages of his wrestling career, but he brings to the mats great determination and natural skill. We had a few good sessions on the mats during the meet, each one better than the last. Safe, sane and fun to wrestle. I am now looking forward to the rematch! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Had the pleasure of stepping into the ring at Pippa's in Manchester with this skilled pro style wrestler! Have to admit, pro is not my preferred wrestling style, but this guy took me on and gave me a fun bout. Watching him wrestle others I realised just how good he is!! If the Brit Pro style is yours, then don't turn down an invitation to wrestle this man. Without doubt this is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED wrestler.

Was a real pleasure to get on the mats with this wrestler at a small meet in Manchester. We had a good give 'n take roll, considering the weight difference.

Have met him again, a solid work out and plenty to talk about afterwards. Always look forward to our matches

A late evening match up was as good as ever! He might be slim, but hes tough, resistant and fights back. I am never disappointed!
Another great tussle with this strong, tough wrestler! Can't speak too highly of him!
(Earlier Recommendation below!)
Had the real pleasure of locking up with this new wrestler at a Grapevine meet at Barnet. Superb physique, unafraid to step on to the mats with a wrestler way out of his weight class, this guy is one feisty, tough, strong grappler. Had two or three sessions with him, and in each he gave 100%. Dont undersetimate his strength either....he can handle himself well. I look forward to the next battle. this is a 100% Gold Star recommendation!

The rematch I had been waiting for! And I was not disappointed either! This wrestling beef is EVEN stronger than he was first time we met. Great upper body strength and power. Our action ranged from mats to ring and back to the mats. Again submissions on both sides. This guy is TOTALLY RELIABLE! We fixed time and date and he was punctual almost to the minute despite traffic. I cant wait for the next Round! 5 STAR RECOMMENDATION!
This wrestler is not to be missed! Good physique, totally reliable, sane and safe on mats, but tough, skilled wrestler with great stamina. I am looking forward to stepping on to mats with him again....soon!
After a long break and some missed opportunities we hit the mats again today! this is one little muscled tank of a wrestler! Strong, determined with lots of stamina. We had a good few hours sweating it out with submissions on both sides! Highly recommended!

We first messaged quite some time ago and I said I would be in contact when I was next in the area. Fast forward a few months and I was in the area for work so made contact to see if we could arrange a match. I am glad we managed to arrange it!
We had a good couple of hours of action in my hotel room. Very intense but also managed to learn a thing of too from this vastly experienced wrestler. Safe, sane and easy to talk to.
Will definitely be in contact when I am back in the area to see if we could arrange to meet again for another match.

Now here is some good news for those of us looking for the heavier guys! Here is one awesome power house! As strong as an ox, they say. Well this wrestler is. Strong, tough, determined to bring all hes got to the mats, he's a hell of a challenge. Sane and reliable, it was easy to fix the meet date and he kept in touch when it looked like things might have to alter time wise. It was a sweat drenched 2 hours of intense wrestling, subs on both sides. Off the mats, fun to chat with. I can't wait for Round 2 which we have agreed will happen! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation!

Met this guy at a Pippas meet and glad I did. We had a great couple of grapples which pushed me a lot. He's a safe and sane wrestler who knows his stuff but allows you to have a go. Great to chat to off the mats - it even seems our paths may have crossed a long time ago! Definitely recommended.

Had the REAL pleasure of wrestling this fit, strong man again today! DAMN this is one class act!
WOW!!! We met again at a group meet in Manchester! I got my arse well and truly kicked in double quick time! This is one class act! I reckon this wrestler to be one of the top grapplers in UK. He's amazingly fast; he skill base is awesome; he's got a great physique to go with it all; and, above all, he's a REALLY nice guy!
What more is there to say?
After some chat we finally got to meet at a meet in Manchester! Wow, this is one tough guy!! Watch out for his arms, he's very strong! We hit the mats twice during the day and he was one tough, strong, determined opponent! Really good hard but safe and sane grappling. Off the mats, a really nice intelligent man with great conversation. Fun to be with. If you get the chance, wrestle this guy....you won't regret it! 100% recommended!

I think dadwrestle was one of the first people I spoke to when I joined this site and have stuck up a great friendship with him.
He is a big man in size, stature and reputation and he lives up to everything that is said of him. Once he has you down, you better think of many escape routes as he can counter most if not every move you make. Or just tap!
Great pleasure to be be with and an honour to call him a friend.
Cannot recommend this guy highly enough.

What can you say about this guy? He's just one of the best!! Great sense of fun and humour off the mats; a good, solid, reliable wrestle on them! We've battled over the years, and I can say, hand on heart, there has never been a match that has not been 100% enjoyable. Don't be fooled by the smile....he's tough!

Had a great bout with dadwrestle, was a bit wary given stat difference but had an awesome first match of the day, this guy is big, strong and lethal when he gets you on the ground, managed to hold my own and were surprisingly evenly matched with subs both ways.

Met "Dad Wrestle" on his mats for a Friday rumble. Last time we meet he equalised and the score was even. Arrived Friday to gain the advantage and could'nt lets his well experience wrestler beat me again. I was out to prove I wasn't a push over. After an hours powerful, sweaty and intents wrestle, and after plenty of submission later. My job was done and I was victor. But had to continuing attack and defend myself from this experience man.
"Dad wrestle" is a guaranteed conpetative wrestle. Never under estimate this wrestler. If you do he will use it to his advantage and win the match.
Will meet again in the future for sure, and encourage you to take on and experience the skill and ability "Dad wrestle"!!!
Sat 14th January 2017
Finally managed to have a rematch with this fine "experienced" wrestler. As per usual he didn't disappoint. I last meet him years ago when I first joined meet fighters. Then I was shy, bashful and inexperienced but over the years gained more confidence skill and ability to make this rematch a more competitive tougher for dad wrestle. The match itself, had its worth of submissions from both sides. Neither of us "came out on top" but both were happy and satisfied that we had a good afternoon's wrestling.

100% recommendation with a Gold Star!
Rematch was GREAT!! We met on my mats yesterday.This guy gets tougher and tougher to handle on mats! We had a long, sweaty submission wrestle which was pretty even! A pleasure to wrestle.
After a long period trying to plan a meet we finally locked up yesterday afternoon, and it was WORTH WAITING FOR! This guy is tough, strong, reliable and skilled.

Talk about baptism of fire. I can hardly move. Dadwrestle is one hell of a wrestler. So strong, so fast and so inventive. Fantastic guy off the mats too. Very patient with my lack of knowledge. There will be a return bout.... oh yes.
It's about time I upgraded my recommendation of Dadwrestle. I just about had one of the best wrestling sessions ever, with him this afternoon.
He totally amazes me with his skills, power and knowledge of ring craft.
Most of all he truly is one of my dearest friends. The kindest most wonderful man I know.

This GREAT heavyweight just gets better and better! He bring imagination, strength and fun to our bouts! I was again squashed at a small group meet at Barnet, but I got my revenge!
Now I have to admit, this bruiser beat me tonight! He was on TOP FORM! Went in for the kill! Beware though, bushchub, REVENGE IS SWEET!
Now this is a real Brit Pro heavyweight! We met tonight for the first time. He's a rookie, but as strong as an ox! Great power in his upper body. Just wait until he's picked up some tricks....he will be even more of a handful! Really nice guy off the mats too!!
Does this wrestler look good in his gear, or not!? The perfect heavyweight look. One BIG powerhouse on the mats. He can deliver submission or pro with ease. Bring what you've got to a match up with him. You will need it! In pro, he can sell a move better than anyone else I've wrestled! Ace guy off mats too!

Difficult to add anything to that which has already been said about Paul, over the years. For my part, I accepted an invitation to wrestle on his mats before he left London, and found Paul a most gracious host, who quickly put a nervous new wrestler at ease. Paul wrestled down to my level, and, drawing from his wide knowledge, took time to explain the various holds and moves, even allowing me, for a short while at least, to feel like I was in control (lol) before showing me who really was in charge. Thank you, Sir, for a memorable Afternoon of Wrestling.

I met Paul in Newcastle. He is a very strong powerful man who know's

At very short notice, after a brief chat, we fixed to meet. Totally up front about his physical limitation, he happily took on an opponent of my size! Safe, sane and prompt. We had a great evening exchanging holds. Whatever you do, do not underestimate this wrestler's strength and determination! Never let your guard drop, because he will be in there taking advantage. Off the mats, a fun conversationalist. I look forward to tussling with this guy again! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Had my very first meeting from the site with Paul and had a great time. He is much stronger than he looks and has a load of stamina on top of that. I got the better of things early on but that changed pretty quickly. Would highly recommend, safe, sane and sensible opponent who puts you at ease.

Bit of a last minute fixture on a flying visit to the North! But, wow, was it worth it! Totally reliable guy, on time, sane and safe. You get exactly what the profile says, a big, strong opponent. He's just starting off in the wrestling game, but is a natural. We did some good, tough belly to belly action. He can dish out the action and take it! I think he thought he would take the old man down easily, but what transpired was a thoroughly enjoyable, hard match up. If this rookie suggests a meet...agree! You will not be disappointed! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This fella is absolutely the consumate gentleman. We met a couple of times at Pippa's and he was able to give me a few pointers and we enjoyed a couple of matches. I was pleased he didn't go too easy on me and he was strong, safe and sane, exactly the kind of early opponent you want. Hope for a rematch the next time I'm back in the country. He'll probably still teach me a lesson, but I know it will be a good and fair challenge. Thank you again sir.

I have wrestled Paul several times before but this time we had the mats and the ring at Monica's.
Paul is big, strong guy at 100kg with a very good line in mean , grinding headlocks to tap you.
We had a super competitive time on the mats - a real blast for me.
He also very safe and sane. I told him my right knee was a bit dodgy and he didn't go at it. In fact when our various limbs were tied up in the ropes in the ring he knew which of my legs was my right one when I didn't!
I had to ask him to stop a bit early as I hurt a rib a bit, not serious at all but he stopped straight away - one of wrestling's true gentlemen fighters and highly recommended as ever

We have met up pretty regularly over the years! This was a 1on1 session in the ring and on the mats. This is one strong, determined wrestler! Considering the weight difference between us we went for a bit more give and take. He takes his punishment, but he also dishes it out. Totally safe and sane. Easy to arrange meets; reliable with timing. Good conversation off the mats. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Not sure quite why this star of the northern mat scene and I have not hit the mats before, but we did yesterday! And it was a blast! I was obviously careful of the huge weight difference, but it was a fast and furious encounter! Roll on Round 2!! This guy gives such a lot to the UK scene by organising meets! GOLD STAR Recommendation from me!

A surprise instant request by dadwrestle for a session at Pippas,he did not dominate his extra weight over me,he feels much lighter ,as he controls it well.Glad I didnt disappoint as we only had a short time slot.A very polite man on and off the mats
Steeleyes is recommended by dadwrestle
Despite the difference in weight, we had a quick mat bout in a meet at Pippas! I certainly wasn't disappointed! This wrestler bring energy and enthusiasm to the mats. He's up for it, whatever your size! Will certainly be looking to roll with him again. Off the mats he is good humoured and fun to chat with. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
matworker is recommended by dadwrestle
It's true! The cannon ball is now slim!! But he's not lost any of his energy to wrestle! I discovered another weakness yesterday! Had a brief fun roll with him yesterday! What a guy!
WHY HAVE I NEVER WRITTEN A RECOMMENDATION BEFORE??!!
I have know this great guy for years! Hes a perfect host, safe, sane, reliable and, above everything else, FUN!! He has one weakness....which I leave you to discover! More importantly, he has shouldered the running of the Grapevine meets for a long time now. Again, he is a good host, making "newbies" relaxed and encouraging them on to the mats. Events are well organised, friendly and inclusive. He is a blast on the mats, too.
Without this wrestler, the wrestling world in UK would not be the experience it is!

4th meet with this solid wrestler and now good friend, he's still as tough and totally unpredictable which keeps me on my toes and always makes for a good wrestle.
Here's to round 5
Always great locking up with this great wrestler, he never disappoints. Just as tough and strong as ever. I must've caught him off guard this time but I'm sure he'll make me pay tenfold next time and I can't wait for that. Off the mats he's great company and I hope we have many more meets in the future, as always 100% recommendation from me.
Had the pleasure of meeting up with Dadwrestle on his trip north and boy did it not disappoint, with a two hour rough and tumble session, I soon found myself out of my league, he's one tough fella but safe and sane, even managed a few pints afterwards making for a very enjoyable evening
100% recommendation from me.
Met Paul at the group meet at Manchester and it was a great start to a great group meet. He is a very strong, experienced grappler who give me a hard but very enjoyable grapple. He can go from standing smiling and chatting with you to pinning you down in a blink of an eye, very impressive for a big guy. 100% recommend this safe and sane wrestler, look forward to meeting again in the future.
Glasgow1971 is recommended by dadwrestle
What's there not to like? Great repeat session on the mats at a meet at Pippas! I would never turn down a tussle with this guy. Watch out too, he's learning. When he's got your relaxed, he's in there with a quick submission!
Met again at a Manchester meet! What a star guy! Cheeky grin is deceptive....watch out....hes learning fast! Gold Star 100% Recommendation!
Had another chance of getting this Newcastle wrestler on the mats! He's a cheeky guy, who is fast learning his trade as a wrestler. Strong, determined and never stops keeping coming back for more! Great fun to wrestle. Yes, he got a sub off me, I have to admit it. But it won't be so easy next time!
Had the chance to lock up again with this lovely guy on a visit to the North East! We had a good few hours of tussle, which was a great experience! He's as strong as ever....don't be fooled by the innocent smile! He's a toughy! Roll on my next visit north!
A newbie he might be, but this is one strong, tough, fun guy to hit the mats with!! We met at a meet in Manchester and it was the first session for both of us! It was a perfect beginning to a great day. He learns quickly and is no pushover!! I look forward to facing up to this wrestler again.....as soon as possible. Safe, sane and fun, on and off the mats. 100% Recommendation here!

After a LONG break, hit up again with this wrestler! Hes beefed up, and is strong and tougher than ever! We had a long evening of tussling in my hotel room! Next time, its going to be on the mats, because he claims he can beat me! We will see!
If you just happen to be in the north of England make sure you take this guy on! He's quiet off the mats but tough, strong and determined on them. He took my by surprise just how resistant he was in a hold. Great body which he uses to effect! I trust that we shall face each other again SOON !!

Had chance for 2 sessions on the mats yesterday at a Manchester meet! Hes as tough and resistant as ever. Always a joy to wrestle.
Wrestled this guy over a number of year; our last encounter was at a group meet in Manchester. This wrestler has an amazing physique, strong agile and determined on the mats. He delivers a great match. Off the mats he is intelligent and a you are assured a good conversation. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Gold Star!

Fought the Daddy again. As expected I had no chance to win any bout, but he would let his guard down once or twice for me to take my revenge for a second, then he would be on top again. There was plenty of sweat and fun with the Daddy, and surely more sweat and fun in the future.
22nd November 2015
Finally met the Daddy during one of my visits in London, and luckily just before he moved out of his place. He wrestled me at my level, yet he's on top all the way through the tough sweaty yet safe and sane bout stating that he's the boss of wrestling. He did let me fight back a few times but only under his full control. Thank you for taking the time to meet me for a great match. Sure we will wrestle each other again somewhere in the future.

Another chance to see if I could wear out this wrestler! Of course, the answer is no! GREAT fun on the mats!!
Wrestled this "Duracell Bunny" again at a group meet! He just keeps coming back for more! A delight to wrestle! Despite the huge weight difference, he delivers a tough bout that makes me work just as hard as him! Gold Star guy!!!!
Great to have a chance of a "rematch" on the Barnet mats at a group session!! Good to watch this wrestler take on guys in his own weight class too. Skilled and tough, it was a pleasure to watch!
I must admit that I was perhaps a little apprehensive about the weight difference between us, but I need not have worried! This is one feisty, tough, energetic wrestler! Arrangements were made easily. He was spot on time. He stripped down and was on my mats within seconds. He just kept on coming back for more every time I put him in his place! We had a good two hour, non-stop match. He has some great technique which he uses to advantage. It was a great bout! It was the last "battle" on my mats in London; and it was a perfect way to end!! 100% recommended!

My first opponent on my first time going to a wrestling meet at Pippa's. Very happy that he was. Friendly off the mats and a great wrestler on the mats. Made me work to get any advantage and helped made me feel right at ease for the day to come. Look forward to wrestling him again.

Great to see this experienced Brit Pro grappler settled in his new home! We met up for a good, hard session on his mats. He's as ever....perfect experience on the mats; welcoming host; tougher than he makes out!! Will be heading out to take him on again SOON!!!
Locked up again with this great guy this week! Hot pro session on his mats! He's a perfect host, sane, safe and tough.A skilled, imaginative wrestler. We are to meet again soon, I hope!

What an absolute delight this guy is to fight and talk to! He was my first wrestle at Pippas and set a good standard from the start. He's big, strong and well balanced in the ring. He has great stature and a well established frame which I imagine has engulfed many fighters!
You can see by the sheer number of recommendations that he's earned, he is definitely, more than worth a bout! This guy is a star and a real pillow of this community...an absolute pleasure, thanks again big boy 😉

I was daft enough to be the first man to invite this wrestler into the ring at a group meet!! It was a mistake, but a good one! I was on my back tapping before I knew it. He's a skilled, tough, sanely aggressive wrestler who is a delight to face. Built like a tank, he functions as a wrestling explosion in the ring or on the mats. Great to watch too in action. Off the mats a really fun guy! Good sense of humour. Gold Star 100% RECOMMENDATION! Don't miss your chance to wrestle this guy!

And the pics don't lie! I was lucky enough to get a late evening grapple with this guy while on a trip to Manchester. Easy to arrange details. Limited space to grapple, but wow, is this some skilled guy! Freestyle training makes him fast, agile and tough to control and keep down, despite my weight advantage. This was a most enjoyable and fun session. We have agreed to meet again with more space to wrestle. Good conversation too! What more could you ask for? Another GOLD STAR Highly Recommended!

I think this big man was slightly surprised at how strong I was...despite wrestling that afternoon I was still determined to beat him! He's very strong, big and solid. A good wrestler who knows how to apply holds and can be aggressive which was fun. An overall top guy who had a lot of energy to keep wrestling and keep his weight on top of me!! Very intelligent guy to chat to. Highly recommend

Now if you want to see the perfect lightweight wrestler physique, look no further! And remember too, hes a footballer, so his legs are amazingly strong. Avoid his scissor holds! This was a meet in limited space, but was a great session. This wrestler has a good controlled aggressive style, always coming back for more and dishing out as much as he receives. Fun conversation off the mats. Next time we have agreed on more space. This was one of those meets that makes you glad you are part of the wrestling scene! Roll on Round 2! GOLD STAR Highly Recommended.
dadwrestle is recommended by Playwrestling
I was a bit apprehensive when I received a challenge as thought this "legend" would be well out of my league. I needn't had worried.
Paul is a friendly guy and respected my limits and although I was out powered by him felt totally safe wrestling against him. Luckily for me it was a hot day and the sweat was pouring off us and it made it easier for me to counter his moves.
Top recommendation for this great guy.
Playwrestling is recommended by dadwrestle
After some time chatting, it was easy to fix a time to meet and wrestle. Totally reliable, safe and sane. More importantly, great fun!! This wrestler is more skilled that he gives himself credit for. He's tough and surprisingly strong. He counters moves well and is sanely aggressive on the mats. It was certainly more than simple "play"! This was a superb way to spend a lunchtime! I am most definitely looking forward to Round 2! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Don't miss your chance of taking this guy on.

This guy travelled over three hours one evening to meet me in Dublin!! That speaks for itself. Added to that he is keen, tough and, excuse my language, bloody strong! He has biceps of steel! Despite the late hour we had a great session. What he lacks in skill he makes up for in determination, guts and strength! We settled that there had to be a rematch! Sooner the better! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Great to finally wrestle this legend of wrestling in Dublin yesterday. Dadwrestle's reputation of being a rough, tough, aggressive heavyweight Certainly didn't disappoint. Safe and sound at all times. Great match up and I look forward to round 2.
Super guy , we had a coffee and great chat afterwards. I give him my top recommendation.

Now this is one class wrestler! Yes, he's a newbie, but he's learning VERY fast. He's extremely strong, good solid wrestler build, and he knows how to use his power! Amazing upper body strength especially in his arms, so beware! This is one wrestler not to be missed. Off the mats, he was Irish charm personified, but on the mats, watch out! Good chat after! This is a GOLD STAR 100% recommendation!

Dadwrestle was reliable turning up as promised. He lived up to expectations applying a plethora of holds and moves, asserting his superiority against this novice. He was excellent company, I would highly recommend a meeting if the chance arises. Thank you.
A great meeting on the spur of a moment! DadWrestle was perfect host and still as strong as ever! Despite trying to change tact with some sneaky moves he overpowered me again. Still young at heart and in body! Had a great early afternoon plus the chat that followed. He makes a great cup of coffee too! Highly recommend a meet with him. Thank you!

We had a great heel/jobber session! He knows how to take his punishment! He looks the part in gear, and delivers on the mats. A perfect way to spend a hot, July morning! 100% recommended! Dont miss your chance of locking up with this guy.
Last minute arrangements seldom work out, but this one did!! Delighted to meet up again with this big wrestler! Again, he took a tough beating, but fought back hard too. All safe and sane but a hard, sweaty encounter. Great lad off the mats too. I repeat, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
dadwrestle is recommended by Squashlad
24/10/2014: It's pretty intimidating taking on a guy who outweighs you by 32 lbs and has had 222 past opponents just here on Meetfighters alone! And yes, all that strength and experience certainly told, with him getting multiple submissions out of me from a wide arsenal of holds and techniques. But wrestling dadwrestle was a great, if punishing, experience - he's a true gentleman, welcoming and hospitable, and plays safe and respects limits, with an excellent spacious set up for wrestling. Don't let his age fool you! You'd never guess it and the man is still in great shape, with a lot of strength. Although he prefers competitive matches dadwrestle can certainly punish jobbers. Highly recommended and this jobber will be back for more.
18/04/2015: A rematch with dadwrestle, competitive this time, at a small group meet in Hackney. As strong as ever, he had me controlled and submitting most of the time, but he seemed almost paternally proud when he found that his protégé had developed something resembling a defence and could even (very occasionally) get the odd sub himself. Dadwrestle's a lovely man, thankfully far above such base things as cheating in tag matches. Wrestle him and learn....
12/10/2015: For my swansong at dadwrestle's great home set before he's reduced to joining us plebs at the matrooms and it was as good fun a grapple as ever. I think he's quietly pleased with how I'm coming along, but that didn't stop him working me over yet again. Which is how it should be.
14/05/2017: He'll tell you he's retiring soon. He won't. He'll tell you he's past it. He isn't. Ow....
Squashlad is recommended by dadwrestle
Had the real pleasure of locking up again with this star of the UK mat world! Don't be fooled by the "I'm only a jobber" routine! There's real skill and determination in this grappler's repertoire! A superb few hours wrestling! The perfect opponent!
Another great session today! Watch out for the legs! Hes a cyclist...get caught in the head scissors and you know it! He's got some sneaky fighting back moves, too. Always a pleasure to wrestle and excellent chat off the mats. Continues to be an A1* opponent!
Dont be mislead! The so called squashlad is fast learning good aggressive tactics! Hes strong and resilient. We had several good sessions today, making me definitely want more! Whats this about rule breaking? Who? Me?!! Great guy off the mats too.
This is one first rate jobber! He can certainly take his punishment! Easy to fix a meet; safe, sane and reliable. Tough on mats, he delivers exactly what his profile says. Intelligent and good conversation off the mats, too. For a "newbie", he's a natural, I reckon....born for the mats! I had a great, fun evening...just hope he comes back for more! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

What a great host, on and off the mats! It took some time for us to find a mutually convenient day, but it was well worth while waiting! I agree with others....watch out for the legs! Safe, sane, fun as a wrestler! Good conversationalist after the bout, too. No hesitation...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I look forward to Round 2!

Round 2: Another great session with this big, strong tough guy on the Barnet mats. Simply can't recommend him enough!
Round 3: As predicted, this bruiser goes from strength to strength! He's using his power at the start of each session with skill and determination. Watch out for his killer face bar! Only way to keep him down is to keep him back to canvas....whatever it takes! Hugely enjoyable to wrestle: great fun off the mats!

Good trustworth guy kept to his promises about times and is considerate. I don't know about underestimating my own strength but he certainly has some of his own and took some time to find myself ways of getting out of his holds. He knows his stuff if you are inexperienced and explained a few holds we tried, how they work and how to get out of them.

I took advantage of a trip to Newcastle to get in touch with this wrestler! Whatever your appetite, this guy delivers more than fish and chips! Easy to make arrangements with, safe, sane and reliable. This wrestler might still be lacking in wrestling experience, but what he might lack in skill, he makes up for in enthusiasm! We had a good two hours of trading holds. He is tall and underestimates his own strength....so beware! Highly recommended!! I look forward to Round 2!

It was a great pleasure meeting this veteran of meetfighters. I was quite impressed by the number of his past opponents (and recommendations), so I did not hesitate to accept the challenge.

For me this was a very fun meet and that's all that matters!

Off the mats hes charming and great to chat with. On the mats, he is fast, skilled, amazingly strong and devastating (in a fun way!). Added to this, he has a physique anyone would be proud of! Hes also pretty good looking too! So its no surprise I got my arse kicked! The one sub I got...I had to cheat (I know, ME cheat?!)

I am so pleased that I have had the opportunity to meet Paul today.
He is a truly likeable guy and great fun to be with.
Not only is he extremely courteous, but he respected my weaknesses and encouraged me to express myself as well as helping me with with a few positioning holds.
I look forward to many future meetings and his friendship too.

This was a last minute arrangement after this wrestler had been badly let down by a "no show"! This is one enthusiastic rookie. Safe and sane, he was up for trying lots of moves. This was an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Good to see, too, another BIG guy on the UK wrestling scene. As he gains in skill and confidence he will become quite a challenge. Don't miss out on a match if he invites you! I will be up for a rematch! Highly recommended!

After a long break, met up again with this wrestler at Barnet mat room. He's looking good as ever in gear, with a great physique, especially his arms. We had a good, fun, sweaty roll for an hour or two! Was great to lock up again after all this time!
This is one great guy to wrestle! We have met regularly over the years. Tough, strong, reliable, hes a skilled wrestler who enjoys the struggle on the mats. HIGHLY recommended!
dadwrestle is recommended by HHfight
Having seen his exceptional recommendations on this website, I was not hesitant to wrestle him. I was looking for a safe yet rough opponent, indeed he is. Follow to our brief phone conversation which he fairly pointed out that if he faces a lighter opponent he does not use his weight to win, we set up a submission & body punching match in Barnet. We wrestled for more than two hours and he carefully and patiently showed me some moves which I really hope to develop further.
'The Boss' is an highly skilled UK wrestler with powerful legs and a lot of stamina. As a result of his numerous years of wrestling experience, he perfectly knows his staff and to adjust according to his opponents' fight skills. 100% highly recommended for those who are genuinely up to fight, he is also a chatty and interesting person on and off the mat.
I am raring to wrestle him again soon, 'Boss' round two!
HHfight is recommended by dadwrestle
Sometimes a distinct weight difference makes for a good match! This was certainly the case with this UK based Italian wrestler. Fixing the meet was straightforward, and he was incredibly punctual. Once on the mats, he had the qualities of a tiger!! We had agreed that body punching was OK. So guys....be warned! He packs a solid punch! We wrestled for just under 3 hours. I showed him a few moves which he very quickly turned against me! TOTALLY safe and sane but that that sense of wrestling aggression that makes for a great encounter. He still counts himself as a rookie, but he is learning fast! This was a perfect way to burn off some Christmas fat! This wrestler is fun on and off the mats. Not to be missed! 100% RECOMMENDATION! Roll on Round 2!!!

I met Dadwrestle a few times at Hackney matroom. Great guy to roll with. He used his size to his advantage and got a fair few pins out of me. A gentleman on and off the mats. A pleasure to meet and wrestle.
dadwrestle is recommended by GrappleViking
Finally had the chance to meet the legendary Dadwrestle. I was quite nervous prior to our match.. Let's face it; It's not everyday you wrestle someone with close to 300 past opponents. And me having next to no experience myself.. Ahem.
Dadwrestle is, as expected, a very good wrestler. He's truly experienced, very strong and knows many holds.
Don't let his lovely smile, and charming voice lure you into a false sense of safety; once you're on the mats, you're on your own! He is out to win!
Realiable, lots and lots of fun! I'm waiting for a rematch.
GrappleViking is recommended by dadwrestle
Whatever you do, don't fall for the good looks, great physique and the winning smile! This guy is a serious wrestler with skills on the mats. Don't underestimate him. He's strong, fast and imaginative on the mats, and out to win! Most enjoyable match up at a group meeting in Manchester. Safe, sane, reliable FUN! Don't miss the chance of meeting up. 100% recommendation...Gold Star even!
Churd is recommended by dadwrestle
After far too long we made contact again! What a great host! I was part of a four way group meeting. This is one long standing, fun, experienced wrestler, who knows how to make a bout work. His mats were down quickly and we had a great evening's wrestling. Off the mats, he has a wonderful sense of humour and couldn't do more to make his guests feel relaxed and welcome. 100% recommendation. A real star of the UK wrestling scene.

What great comments can I add to this recommendation that haven't been said by so many before me? Check the recommendations out for yourself!
Long story short...
If you have not wrestled this man, do yourself a favour and send him a match request and WRESTLE HIM AS SOON AS YOU CAN!
Dadwrestle was one of the first guys I ever wrestled and still one of the best.
He will give you a total battle on the mats and be an AWESOME friend off the mats.
Few wrestlers, in my experience, can get near to his combination of skills, determination, love of wrestling along with his friendship.
He is totally reliable (you can probably set your watch to his sense of timing:) and will NOT let you down.
This man is not just tough as a rock, he's a diamond :)
Appreciate dadwrestle and get on the mats with him.
You will have a GREAT time !
I am proud to give dadwrestle my highest possible recommendation.

Great to see this skilled wrestler on Meetfighters! We have been regular opponents over the years in lots of different locations! Big, strong build, tough on the mats but completely safe and sane. Hes reliable; will show up when he says he will. He will give you a thorough wrestling workout, testing you to your limits! 100% recommended!

I have wrestled dadwrestle several times over the years.Although he is much heavier than me we have always had a great wrestle.He adapts well to the weight difference between us.He is a stronge safe wrestler and I always enjoyed trying to give the bugger what for !.
Great guy,100% safe and I would like to wrestle him again one day.
SuppleWrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
Now here is a "blast from the past"! I used to meet this tall, wiry wrestler at group meets in the Midlands when there was a mat room near Nottingham. Although there's a huge weight difference he never backed off from a challenge. He's fit and strong, and as the label says, "supple"! Dont underestimate this guy! Great to see him on Meetfighters! 100% recommendation for a safe, sane, fun match up!
dadwrestle is recommended by wrestlpal
Dadwrestle is a powerful, extremely experienced and skillful wrestler who knows his stuff. I value his experience, knowledge and compassion. Good sense of humour. Totally reliable, save and sane. He really put me through my paces, tough and strong, as he is. He adjusted to my clumsy efforts well and taught me well. I'm hoping to have many more bouts with him. I wholeheartedly recommend dadwrestle to anyone of any strengh and skill level.

We managed to arrange a time to meet up on one of this big guy's regular visits to UK. And, damn, it was well worth it. This is one strong, tough heavyweight! He claims to be a newcomer, but he possesses that natural gift for wrestling. He is fast on his feet and on the mats, and learns very quickly. If you agree strikes, he delivers fast and furious! Off the mats we enjoyed a good chat. Totally reliable, turning up exactly on time; safe and sane. This wrestler comes with a 100% recommendation. We have both agreed there will be a Round 2 as soon as possible!

WOW! What a great person, on and off the mats! On the mats I was TOTALLY out-wrestled! But this grappler is a very patient teacher too. Thank you! Off the mats, he is charming, interesting to chat with and fun! He's safe, sane, skilled with a very strong physique. I can't recommend him too highly. If you get the chance, meet him! 100% Gold Star recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by GymGladiator
I had a great, hard, match today with DadWrestle who had traveled a long way to try out me & my mats. My mats survived but not so sure I did! I think I was able to hold my own (sometimes!) against his superior experience. ...and weight!
He said he enjoyed the visit and it's good to have achieved being on his long list of 'clients'!
Good to meet again ...but not this week or next! If you want a good match and a long workout then I can recommend DadWrestle. I don't think I will need a gym workout for a few days anyway.
GymGladiator is recommended by dadwrestle
I had been apprehensive about taking this guy on, I must admit! The drive to mid-Wales was amazing on a brilliant August day, and the warm welcome I received on arrival matched the scenery and dispelled all worries. We hit the mats in his well equipped mat room almost at once and there followed over 3 hours of tough, intense wrestling. This is one strong opponent. He can power out of holds with ease! He looks great in his gear, as his pics show. This must be one of the best wrestlers I have ever squared up against. Safe, sane, fun and a perfect host! He's the master of the bacon butty in the post-fight entertainment. Dont worry about the journey....the wrestling that follows is top quality! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation! Roll on the next visit!
dadwrestle is recommended by FrBoxer
Paul apparently has met with the world world and his wife on the mats.
This is how I ended up on the mats with him at Pippa's. Despite my limited experience it was really fun and enjoyable as Paul knows very well what he is doing.
Really enjoyed all the exchanges with the 'wrestling agent provocateur'.
Definitely recommend him too anyone who wants some serious or less serious wrestling.
Take care my friend, and hopefully see you next.
FrBoxer is recommended by dadwrestle
Met this great Frenchman at a meet in Manchester. Clearly, by his profile name, he doesn't claim to be a wrestler. But don't be fooled! We had several great sessions on the mats where he more than adequately proved he has the makings of a skilled, fast and tough wrestler!! Off the mats he has a superb sense of humour and is great fun to chat with. It was a pleasure to meet and roll with him. Let's hope our paths cross again soon! 100% RECOMMENDATION!!!

After years of not managing to meet up, we finally met again at a meet in Manchester. This grappler was on fine form. He delivers a tough, hard fight on the mats! He certainly had the upper hand now. Looks like I need to up my game!
Should have put up a recommendation for this fighter years back! Tough, strong, nice attitude on mats or in ring! Gives a good account of himself.

It was a real privilege to fight dad wrestle, someone with so much experience. We had a great 2 hour fight which I thoroghly enjoyed.
Strong, energetic and loves his wrestling, it was a great fun time.
A very friendly, amusing and intelligent guy off the mats! I look forward to meeting you again in the near future for round 2!
Rutland is recommended by dadwrestle
Had chance to wrestle this extremely able opponent again yesterday at a Grapevine meet at Barnet. WOW, I need to up my game!! Faster than ever, amazing technical skills, hes a blast to wrestle. Safe and sane, of course, but dont expect to get too many submissions! Off the mats hes a lovely guy to chat with. Hes also great to watch. Wrestle him if you get the chance!
Seldom am I tempted to write at the start of a recommendation "100% RECOMMENDED", but on this occasion its the only thing to write!! This wrestler is the tops. Good defensive wrestling style, with explosive moments when the submission hold just hits you! This guy is just one year into wrestling and I was made to look the rookie! I was totally outclassed! If you get the opportunity, meet him. Completely reliable, safe and sane with a high pain threshold. This is one wrestling star in the making!
dadwrestle is recommended by Brown Bomber
One of the few wrestlers that has ever come to my turf for a match so of course I had to meet him. He is strong 💪 bloke and we had a good roll and his sleeper hold is phenomenal. I have to apologize for the fakes that no showed on him in Texas but there are plenty of flakes and fakes there. One reason. I wrestle away
Brown Bomber is recommended by dadwrestle
Now this is one class act jobber! He's tough and resistant and takes his punishment like a man! Imaginative on the mats, he's a born pro jobber! He turned up exactly as we arranged, and was safe and sane. He brought out the hidden pro wrestler in me! DONT MISS THIS GUY if you are ever in Houston. 100% Gold Star recommended.
dadwrestle is recommended by Bucksboy
After chatting for many weeks, I finally agreed to wrestle this big fella after his visit to Oxford .. I must admit to feeling a little nervous about meeting this heavyweight Daddy of wrestling, with over 200 fights under his belt !! I needn't have been, he's a really lovely natured and interesting man, but with a real passion for his wrestling !! Nothing I can really say that hasn't been said before, just a strong but fair battle commenced , and I have to say this mans stamina is something to be reckoned with!!
A friend of mine who is interested in starting also joined us , and Paul was more than willing to take the time to start him off with a few basic holds !! A thoroughly enjoyable evening had by all .. Very Highly recommended.
Bucksboy is recommended by dadwrestle
What a guy! This beefy powerhouse hasn't been wrestling long, but he's learned FAST from the experienced guys he has met. Tough, strong and determined on the mats (he has a good set at home!) he is totally safe and sane. He looks the part in gear and delivers a hard but safe and sane bout. He uses his weight well, and I have to admit it, I struggled to get the subs!! I think we agreed an evens fights, but that was him being the gracious host! This is one of the nicest men and best hosts I have met in the wrestling community. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED gold star rating! Roll on the next time!

Strong and determined, he uses his weight well and to advantage. Off the mats, a great sense of fun and humour. The time flew past and we agreed a return match asap! 5 STAR recommendation!
Not sure why I didn't post this earlier! Met this strong and keen wrestler a year or so back when he was starting out. He's great fun on the mats; good, fit tough style, wanting to learn. Totally reliable, safe and sane. I hear hes come on considerably since then! Grrrr....I am ready for the rematch! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Looks good in gear, too. Off the mats, a great guy to chat with. This is a 5 Star wrestler not to be missed. HIGHLY recommended!
dadwrestle is recommended by duncanuk
A true gentleman - who can inflict pain on very inch of your body. Fortunately, he tailors his onslaughts to the abilities of his opponents, so whatever your weight or skill level you will have a good hard wrestle and think you have done well.
Every now and then the mask would slip and the true horror of what could befall me if I got too cocky became apparent. Respect due.
I relish the prospect of the next meeting. Thanks for a great wrestling experience.

"The Big Strong Man" lives up to his name!!!! This Spanish bull is big, strong and fun to wrestle! We made straightforward arrangements to meet on his trip to London. He is clear what he wants out of a meet and rules were agreed easily. Don't be fooled by his claims to be a novice. He is a natural on the mats. Off the mats he is charming and good company. My greatest regret is that he lives in Spain, so a rematch is hard to set up lol! Otherwise a 100% gold star recommendation. Take on the big strong man if you get the chance.

Nice guy off the mats but fierce on it, this big guy knows his stuff. Very skilled and very hard to make tap out. Highly recommended.
dadwrestle is recommended by Chuck
I can only reiterate Paul's very kind words. After what seemed like an immeasurable length of time, I finally got to meet this tough wrestler who knows his holds and moves, and predicts your next one. He's not in the top ten recommendations list for nothing, he's met some very worthy opponents, and I feel honoured to be added to the ever growing list. Make no mistake Paul is strong, capable of bouncing me around the mats, but I (just) managed to hold my own for some of a long and enjoyable session. Round 2 is definitely on the cards. Those that haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting this guy, do it. I promise there'll be no regrets.
Chuck is recommended by dadwrestle
I had one of those wrestling meets today that makes the whole game worthwhile! We had been chatting for years and not been able to set up a meet. Today's meet was easily arranged. This is one first class wrestler! Not only that, off the mats hes fun to be with, with excellent conversation. On the mats he's strong (don't be fooled by his weight and tight, muscled physique!) and determined. Watch out for his arms, too! He has a powerful defense that soon turns into a well planned attack! We had a good few hours of give and take. He dishes out and takes in equal measure! There were submissions from us both. I can't wait for Round 2! Gold Star 100% recommended!

DONT MISS THIS GUY! As ever, a superb wrestle. Strong determined, not phased by wrestling heavier guys, this powerhouse if one feisty guy! He just keep on coming back for more! 100% Gold Star recommendation!
A last minute fixture proved to be one of the best meets of the year! This wrestler has a great build of the small tank variety. Awesome arms and powerful legs. He's strong and determined; not at all phased by much bigger guys....in fact enjoying it! Great stamina, we were on the mats for hours in a 3 way bout with "Bushchub". Dont be fooled by the claim "I am only a beginner". This is one hot, natural, gifted wrestler. I hope and trust that the rematch will happen soon! Off the mats there's good conversation and a great sense of fun.This is a 100% recommendation!

I have had the pleasure of wrestling DadWrestle on several occasions and he has always made me work hard for the win. Initially we wrestled submission style but as my taste for pro developed he kindly changed his style too. He has a great knowledge of the sport of wrestling.

I had heard lots about this grappler, and it was my definite pleasure to face him on the mats at a group session at Barnet. GREAT physique, skilled on mats, strong, energetic and determined. Goes without saying, safe and sane. Watching him wrestling guys in his own weight range was a great way to pass an afternoon. With me, his defense was strong and he wasn't going to let me get away with anything! This is a 100% gold star recommendation! Dont miss the chance to roll with this wrestler!
dadwrestle is recommended by BSF
Great to have a second encounter with dadwrestle at Barnet. He goes in hard but sensible and I had no qualms about locking up with him for a tough bout.
I'm always a bit unsure about wrestling guys where there is a weight difference - only from the point of view that if I get squashed it's not much fun for me or my opponent. This isn't true of dadwrestle who knows exactly how to work it so that both guys have a good match, which is what I had with him at Barnet. We traded gut punches in the bouts which I always enjoy and I'm looking forward to working him over harder(!) next time we meet.
BSF is recommended by dadwrestle
Absolute pleasure to hit the mats again at a meet in Barnet with this tall, wiry, strong wrestler! He can still punch, I am glad to say! Delight to wrestle, great sense of fun and humour too! What more can you ask for?!
I met this star wrestler at a Grapevine meet today at High Barnet. He certainly delivers on the mats! Despite a considerable weight difference he came in hard and fast.

Don't miss the opportunity of facing this wrestler on the mats!!

Well, what to say? We have chatted over the years, and I hadn't thought that we would ever hit the mats. When we did at a meet in Manchester it was me who did the hitting of the mats!!!

dadwrestle is recommended by devonwrestler
As Paul says, we spent a few hours together on mats made available by someone we both know, we were grateful for that kindness. Not quite all the time we spent together was wrestling but we certainly had some fun one way and another. Paul is stronger and heavier than me as well as more experienced at wrestling so naturally he won nearly all the submissions, I did get a couple from him with armlocks but he was probably giving me chances to make that possible. Paul did take care to wrestle safely and release me promptly when I tapped which is so important. Also he managed the arrangements to meet up efficiently so I can definitely recommend.
devonwrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
After a very brief meeting some time back at a Barnet meet, we fixed to meet on the mats of a mate in Exeter. We had a long, good give and take session, to take account of the weight difference. This wrestler is much stronger than his weight might suggest, so beware! This is a tough, determined wrestler! We had a good few hours on the mats and raised a good sweat. Totally reliable, safe and sane. This guy gets a 100% thumbs up as an opponent!
dadwrestle is recommended by Mainewrsl
I met Dadwrestle on short notice in London – and am very glad I did. He's big and tough, respectful of limits, and knows his moves very well. I had to work to get any kind of submission, and he made me submit over and over. Nothing more a littler guy could ask for! Highly recommend, so meet him if you can.

At the very last minute we were able to fix a meet, and I certainly had no regrets! Although there was a considerable weight difference, we had a great to/fro bout, exchanging holds. Don't be fooled by his size; this is one strong, feisty lightweight!! He has a good, firm, well muscled physique, which he uses to good advantage. Off the mats he is intelligent, interested and interesting in his conversation. He also has a a fun sense of humour! What is there not to enjoy? 100% recommendation! I hope we get to meet and wrestle again!!

This wrestler is all he says; strong, skilled judo practitioner, eager, keen and delivers exactly that in a bout! We wrestled for well over two hours. Both took subs, but I have to admit he took many more than me! The perfect gent on and off the mats, safe, sane and reliable. It was a real pleasure to meet him and fight him. I only hope that I get the chance fairly soon of redeeming my reputation LOL! 100% recommendation. Don't miss the chance of wrestling this man!!

After a lot of trash talking and general verbal abuse, we hit my mats! Got to say, got my arse well and truly kicked by this amazing wrestler! He's a superb grappler on the mats. 100% recommended as ever!
Can't believe there isn't a recommendation from me on here! Have wrestled this little pitbull over the years and EVERY fight has been GREAT! He's tough and verbal before the meet; and he delivers 100% on the day. Reliable safe and sane, but a real handful! Got well and truly beaten this last time, but a REMATCH is promised!! This guy is a star! Don't miss out on taking him to mats.

This time I was lucky to meet dadwrestle in his London mat room after I had missed him last time I had been in London. He is a big and heavy guy, but I have never been afraid of wrestling guys heavier than myself. For such guys I have a feeling that I can not damage, which give me a good chance to try potential new techniques - if I get the chance! I have always liked strong male legs, and this wrestler has thighs sturdy as telephone poles. And just as unbreakable! He also has some good strong arms, so it was nice to try finding out, who of us who could dish out the strongest bearhug. Wrestling dadwrestle I had expected that I would be just a wrestling toy for him. He was both safe and sane, just like I had thought he was, and it was nice to share company with him both on and off the mats. I should know that 200+ previous opponents can't be wrong! I can only advice you to cue up in line for wrestling this guy!

Missed out on meeting this wrestler last time he was in UK. So only had pics to go by. He matches up to everything you see in the pics!! He has powerful legs from his running days and his arms are good too. Avoid his scissors if you an. Safe, sane, reliable, great company after the mat session. This wrestler may not have the "killer instinct" that some of the rasslin' community has, but he is fun on the mats. Give him a go if you get the chance...you wont regret it!

Dadwrestle is a super guy....He invited me to join him and two friends to wrestle this afternoon and we had a blast. I was a bit out-classed but held my own and thoroughly enjoyed everyone there. Dadwrestle is skilled, strong, witty, smart, friendly and a really good wrestler. I was sad to see the wrestling end, even tho I was exhausted and totally satisfied. He invited me to join them and adjourn to the pub where we chatted and laughed for a couple of hours. A def highlight of this trip to London.. Including my first tag team match, which was terrific fun. I hope to repeat it many times ! And Highly Recommended !

Sometimes the very last minute fixtures prove to be one of the best! This skilled, tough wrestler joined three of us to make a tag 4th at the very last minute! Let me tell you, the pics don't tell the whole story! This is one amazing, strong, tough, muscled wrestler! Watch out for his lethal leg scissors! Off the mats there is great, informed, fascinating conversation. I can't recommend this guy too highly....it was a pleasure to meet him. 100% recommended!
dadwrestle is recommended by MONSTA
Wrestled multiple times infact have lost count. I was always on the receiving end at the beginning of meeting him but the worm turned. Believe I gave him a run for his money. Awesome guy to wrestle he looks ominous but he is a big guy with a big heart. Enjoyed every time I wrestled him.
dadwrestle is recommended by Bearhuggruk
Dadwrestle has been a regular opponent for many years. A good mat based battle is always on the cards and from the moment we meet on the mats we know there's gonna be a great clash.
Always safe and sane with lots of attitude. Never had a bad time with dadwrestle!
Bearhuggruk is recommended by dadwrestle
Thought after last night's session I had better update this! This is one of the best guys around!!! Huge fun on the mats; a GREAT tactician; tough and strong; looks amazing in the gear! Easy to fix meets, totally reliable. To all that he brings good conversation off the mats over a mug of tea!! What more can you ask? This is one 100% GOLD STAR recommendation! As I said, ONE OF THE BEST!
Matt's a regular opponent! Lives up to his great pics too. He's pretty skilled, so don't underestime him. He's sane, safe and utterly reliable! Don't miss the opportunity to wrestle him!!

Very easy indeed to make arrangements, punctual, polite....and a GREAT heavyweight! Was delighted to be able to wrestle this big American bear on my mats here in London! Hes a perfect gentleman off mats and a tough opponent on them. We had a great to/fro session, trading strength holds. Hes tall, he's heavy, he looks the part in gear! Let's hope the fates bring him back to London soon. I will be ready for the rematch!! 100% recommendation.

Finally I met this gentleman in London. His long list of opponents reflects his love for wrestling.
He has great skills and is a very experienced fighter who can take and dish out plenty. He is fit and strong as well as reliable, punctual and easy to arrange with. Our match was a fun experience.
Off the mats he is polite, witty and a perfect host. Very highly recommended!

Having missed him last year, I was delighted when this legend of the mats wanted to meet and wrestle this year. What a class act! This guy is one 101% recommendation!! Tall, strong, great "wrestler" look and skilled, hes a tough challenge on the mats but still a joy to wrestle! He brings an intensity to the bout which is irresistible! I was totally outclassed but loved every moment of our meet.
Off the mats, there is great interesting, informed conversation and humour.
It was a privilege to wrestle and I hope to get the chance of a rematch.
There isnt a recommendation high enough for this wrestler!
dadwrestle is recommended by The Kestrel
Round 2 with paul was no easier than the last one, keen as ever he gave me a great workout and still had more pearls of wisdom to share! And this guy had a session the night before which begs the question - where does he get this energy from?????
I can pluck theories out of the air but instead i insist anyone who has not tried him had better have a go and see for themselves hehe
Dunno what i can say that has not been said already! Paul is a brilliant man, great host and one wicked wrestler, i dunno where he gets his energy from!!!!!
Outclassed me in every way, he really does know how to use his weight and strength for maximum advantage, and can be very punishing if you let your guard slip for a second, but very well controlled and safe as well. He was more than willing to share constructive feedback on how i was doing, and showed me how i can do some things better.
He has a great attitude on and off the matts, and interesting in conversation as well as wrestling, very recomendable to any who have not had the privilege of wrestling him
The Kestrel is recommended by dadwrestle
Round 2! Despite the short time between our meets and having wrestled Dave King (!!!), this guy had picked up some good tricks along the road! We had a good 3 hours on the mats battling it out. Second meet better than the first, if that can be believed. This is one tough strong fun wrestler!!
Well, this guy might call himself a rookie, but he's a born wrestler! Easy to fix a time with, reliable and friendly. Once on the mats, he goes for it!! Amazingly strong upper body, especially his arms. He's a natural on the mats, quick to learn, and quick to apply what he learns. Great stamina, he keeps on coming back for more. This was one HIGHLY enjoyable encounter! Good intense, tough submission wrestling, safe and sane. I can't wait for Round 2! 100% recommendation!!!
After a lay off following an injury (his) we met up at a small meet. THIS IS ONE IMPROVED WRESTLER! Faster, more determined than ever, with a rapidly increasing skill base, this is on hot wrestler! I REALLY enjoy his attitude and style on the mats! DONT MISS OUT IF HE CHALLENGES YOU!
dadwrestle is recommended by Basildon Bloke
Dadwrestle is an amazing guy. He's strong and has tons of ability. He's more than a match for any wrestler. But he's also patient and can lower the pace to your standard. A real treat for any wrestler of any level.
This powerhouse looks great in his trunks. He's a perfect host. Friendly, safe and definitely sane.
There's a reason he has so many recommendation and that's because you're mad not to meet him if you have the opportunity. Really can't recommend him high enough.
Thanks for a great evening and look forward to doing it again soon.
Basildon Bloke is recommended by dadwrestle
It had been a long time since we last locked up! This is one impressive heavyweight!! Watch out for his arms....like steel, and he can use them efficiently! Great evening spent on the mats. This wrestler is reliable, safe, sane....and huge fun on the mats! He knows his stuff, and is a real challenge. Can't wait for our next session. 100% GOLD STAR recommendation! if this guy challenges you, ACCEPT! You wold be mad not to.

dadwrestle is recommended by leanmuscles
I rarely grapple with guys who are so much bigger than me knowing there will be a total mismatch. However, the rules were agreed in advance and it turned out to be a really fun experience. Off the mats he is great company and a really interesting guy to talk to. He certainly has my recommendation!
leanmuscles is recommended by dadwrestle
We have chatted for years but finally got to meet today! This experienced wrestler certainly lives up to his profile name!! Great lean ripped body, he is strong and tough on the mats. We agreed the rules in advance owing to the weight difference. He delivered exactly what he promised in a bout. After the match he proved to be an entertaining and fun conversationalist. All round a perfect experience. This wrestler get a 100% recommendation. He is one of the London wrestling scene's best!
dadwrestle is recommended by scotsgrappler
Are blushes discernible online? Sweet recommendation from a guy who combines those two great qualities for my money : perfect gent in usual circumstances and a genial thug on the mats. I had been a bit anxious as he had a good weight advantage and when you are pinned by this colossus you certainly are pinned. But he (mostly) didn't over-do his advantage and we were able to roll and get a workout. It can be very satisfying making a big guy tap and I had to work hard for every submission. Great mat set-up in central London and he even chased after me to return a watch I left in the changing room he had kindly set out for me. Tough, aggressive wrestler who can dish it out and take it. Highly recommended.
scotsgrappler is recommended by dadwrestle
Now this was the perfect response to a "Match Request"! I had long wanted to face this experienced wrestler on the mats. He posted a request and it worked!! Safe, sane, reliable.....all those things; but a skilled, tough wrestler in reality. Rules agreed before hand. Despite my distinct weight advantage, I had to work really hard. The best sort of bout!! Off the mats, this wrestler is charming, intelligent, with a good gift for conversation. This is a Gold Star 100% recommendation! I hope I get another crack at him some day!
dadwrestle is recommended by markuk
I dont suppose this guy needs any more recommendations. The only reason i am doing it is to reinforce all the other positive comments made about him.
He is very easy to make arrangements with-others please note-you know who you are. He is reliable, punctual and polite and has a great sense of humour.
On the mats he is a controlled, safe and sane opponent, who sometimes gives you a chance before he finishes you off, which he did with me. Believe me you wont have any problems if you have a meet with this guy.
markuk is recommended by dadwrestle
Mark very kindly invited me to wrestling meet in the East End. We got to wrestle twice. Hes safe, sane and reliable. A great host too. Hes strong and determined on the mats. Despite the weight difference, we had a great give/take "set to"! Highly recommended. If you get an invitation to one of his meets, make sure you turn up. It's well worth it.
dadwrestle is recommended by scottimike
It was great to grapple this vastly experienced , larger wrestler of London. He was keen and had some weight advantage though no past formal training.He riled me partly as a strategy to get a another future match , we both strained and did well. I had him on his back or front more than he might like to think, a good workout , great to meet up again , well recommended , especially if you have submission or wrestling experience.
scottimike is recommended by dadwrestle
Had the great pleasure of locking up with this wrestler on his "world tour"! We had been chatting a long while and it felt like we had known each other for ages. We had a long exhausting give/take submission bout. He's tough and strong and has the distinct advantage of having done some good training at a London club in his past. Safe, sane and GREAT fun to wrestle! Don't underestimate his skill and strength. Its a great shame this guy is on the other side of the world....otherwise we would the regular fight buddies! 100% recommended!

Enjoyed my time with Dadwrestle. Because of my injury earlier the week, we didn't wrestle as long as i had wanted. He is strong, experienced and is a very good host
with great mats in heart of London. Next time I wanna meet him in early part of my London trip and injury free. Totally recommended, do not miss him, if you have a chance to meet him.

I met up with this great wrestler at the end of his fairly gruelling trip to London! He had wrestled morning, noon and night for days and was injured, so we didnt get much of a match. BUT, this is one strong, determined tough wrestler! He loves the mats and brings energy, enthusiasm and power to a bout. I REALLY hope next time I get to meet him at the start!!! Totally reliable, safe and sane, this guy is a star to watch! He's only been wrestling a year...he's a natural! 100% recommended!!
dadwrestle is recommended by DenverWrestler
Had a very enjoyable time with dadwrestle. He can be quite the beast on his excellent mats, which I suppose is ironic if you know his professional background. He's a totally reliable, pleasant, easy-going beast who makes the match fun for everyone, and he certainly knows how to use his size and strength against you if you're not paying attention. I was concerned about the size difference before meeting up, but he's controlled and cautious on the mats, putting my concerns to rest in the very first minute, so smaller guys shouldn't worry about taking him on. And as I mentioned above, he has an excellent space for wrestling with good mats – very very rare in central London!
DenverWrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
Despite the considerable weight difference, this wrestler was content to meet me! It was easy to fix the date and time. He showed up, and I was not disappointed! His skill on the mats and his native strength made for an excellent session of give and take. He is a GREAT technician and dished out the punishment! Off the mats he is fun, a good conversationalist and great to be with. If you get a challenge or if you see hes in your neck of the woods...GO FOR IT! this is one hot wrestler!! 100% recommended! Here's to the next time!

Had the chance to face this great strong wrestler again on his visit to London. He was in awesome shape as ever! Tough and intense on mats, but as ever, one of the best wrestling experiences out. Its a real privilege to step on to the mats with him....and I even got some taps out of him!! Roll on his next visit!!!
I certainly came up against one of the best when I stepped on to my mats with this wrestler!! Great physique, strong, and skilled, he delivered a tough but sane and safe match which was 100% enjoyable. Arrangements were made simply and easily. This guy is a must for those who are looking for a hard fought bout with an accomplished heavyweight. Pity there are not more like him in UK!! Off the mats, he is charming, intelligent and a fascinating conversationalist. All in all, one of the most challenging, expert wrestlers it has been my privilege to face! Roll on the next encounter!
dadwrestle is recommended by Tanker
As he said its been years, dad has lost none of his enthusiasm for the sport. He is a skilled strong and agile heavyweight who can hold his own against the best of them. As a person he is very funny, sociable guy who wants to wrestle everyone in the room. I was impressed by his fitness & stamina & asked him about his regime, it is unorthodox … ie. there is't one. But it certainly works (He was constantly on the mats, in fact possibly spent more time on them than anyone else present & there were some young guns at the meet)
He was first person who ever challenged me to a wrestling match & I still remember the excitement I felt that day 10 years ago when I received it.
If you don't like coming to the meets & your fed up with people wasting your time with the usual lame excuses & cancellations , or a foreign visitor with limited time, want a safe, sane, genuine submission bout with a heavyweight opponent c/w heel tendencies, give him a shout. He won't let you down.
Well this is one of the great Characters of British Wrestling, big strong skilled , a heel from central casting(But safe & sane)
He used to be called Mauler Paul which perfectly describes his wrestling style & I think he should still use that name ( its just so HIM!! LOL) When I first started out, he was one of the people who befriended & encouraged me & is one of the nicest & funniest people you can meet. He won't waste your time. you must wrestle him.
Tanker is recommended by dadwrestle
Its been YEARS since I was able to face up to this heavyweight on the mats! Chance came yesterday at a group meet in Barnet! Honours were even I reckon! BUT this guy has developed his skills since we last met up and is a real monster on the mats. Weve agreed we need another meet! SOONER THE BETTER!
No idea why I haven't done this before! Tanker is an old wrestling foe LOL! He looks great in gear and is tough in the ring or on the mats. He's thoroughly reliable,strong, safe and sane. he has lots of experience and is a fun guy to be around. WRESTLE HIM!

I have known this great, skilled wrestler for more years than either of us care to remember! It was therefore a great surprise to meet up with him again at a group meeting in Barnet yesterday! Hes as tough an opponent as ever! It was so good to get back on the mats with him again, and to watch him take on some of the younger, technical guys. This wrestler is one of the best! Safe, sane, reliable, not to be missed. 100% RECOMMENDATION!!

Had the real pleasure of meeting this young wrestler at a group meet in Barnet. We had chatted before, but this is in no way a rookie! There was a considerable weight difference between us, but this wrestler defended and attacked with ease and skill. I was only too disappointed that I only got one session with him. I REALLY look forward to facing him again soon for a longer session. Dont miss your chance of taking this guy on. He is well worth the effort!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Finally met "Dadwrestle" on his own place and we had some great matches. More aggressive than he appears outside the match, but as much as you need to enjoy a real fight with strength and pressure....but always safe. Strong enough, big guy with strong legs, very good when he attacks ( with full force), you must upgrade a little bit your defense my friend!!! It was a great pleasure meet him...and will do this again. Great hosting, Thank you my friend.

This wrestler is returning to "the scene" after a time out. Its a good thing that he's back!! We had a false start with a cancellation on his part, but he came back with an apology and wanting to fix another date. This time he was early and raring to go!

No dirty tricks IF you finally have managed to control him .
He can last his strenghts and air very long, so we did on his great, big wrestling floor with lots of space .

He will let you on top for awhile as you deserve it by being active and have good wrestling intentions .

Finally got a bout with dadwrestle at Barnet last weekend at a Grapevine meet (well actually 2 bouts).
I thoroughly enjoyed getting squashed by this big guy.
By prior agreement he gave my nips a few hard tweeks and also a few light gut punches which was all very enjoyable....as that is an area I wish to explore.
Perfectly safe and sane at all times I know without any doubt that he must have played it easy with me in respect that I am still a novice at all of this.
I look forward to meeting him again and hopefully some time for a longer private session...!
Definitely recommend and will update after next meet up with him.

After what seems years, got to wrestle my old opponent Den yesterday at Grapevine. He's as tough as he ever was! Happily comes on to the mats with me, a MUCH bigger guy, and tries some sneaky tricks, often successfully!! Don't miss a chance of stepping on to the mats with this tough wrestler!
No idea why I have no written this before! This guy is one of my longest standing wrestling mates! He a fun guy, totally reliable. Dont be fooled by his weight and size. He's tough and skilled on the mats. Packs a punch too if you are into that. Proud to call him a friend.

03:05:14 Time for an up-date. My first match with Paul some 18 months ago was entirely unplanned but what a lucky day that turned out to be. Since then we have met on eight subsequent occasions (at group meets and his London home) and everyone one has been an enjoyable and challenging experience; I always come away having learnt a little bit more. Paul has a good wrestling facility and is a welcoming host but most importantly he's a very good (and highly experienced) wrestler who will give lesser opponents (like me) a break to make the match mutually enjoyable. 101% recommendation - of course.
15.12.12: I met Paul today courtesy of PETEUK who together with YELP31 (who made a valiant effort despite being indisposed) taught me a number of useful holds and escapes; I only hope I can remember them. We wrestled for over 2 hours and had a really good workout (almost every part of me aches). No one was counting but I think I got 3 submissions (he was probably trying to encourage me) using what I was taught; these were paid back tenfold! Paul is a strong, knowledgeable and an experienced wrestler who was an absolute gentleman on the mats matching himself to my level while firmly putting me in my place. He could easily have used his size to his advantage but sportingly gave me a chance and as a result we both had an enjoyable afternoon. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending DADWRESTLE; if you are lucky enough to get the chance to meet him take it - you’ll benefit from the experience.
BRITANNICUS is recommended by dadwrestle
I always enjoy the challenge of a lighter, faster guy! Britannicus is new to the wrestling world but hes no rookie!! He's strong, determined and picks up moves quickly. He keeps on coming back for more with great intensity. He's a gent on and off the mats, reliable, safe and sane. I have requested a rematch....don't miss the chance of taking him to the mats...SOON!

Finally met up with this guy tonight! Totally reliable, easy to fix date and time. He's one strong, tough guy!! claims to be a beginner, but is a natural. Great wrestler physique, fast a furious on the mats. We had a tough, hard fought match up. Watch out for this wrestler...he's well worth meeting and is a real challenge. 100% recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by hugefan
April 14 My third visit to the kindly gentleman near Victoria who I fondly remembered serving cucumber sandwiches and earl grey after a gentle sporting contest on my previous visit. Wake Up! Bastard beat me up again ! He denies i am a beginner but as his first wrestle was with Noah i think I will always be a beginner compared to him (I feel that comment may induce a sulk but am I sorry?). But it was as before a great wrestle and for those of you looking for a challenge and the chance to learn do accept a challenge and if you are scottish - its also free but you need to take your own sandwiches ha ha.
Met dadwrestle for the second time tonight. Having a bit of a sore back i nearly cancelled but having discussed my ailment dw agreed he would take it easy and so he did - easy on my back, just worked over my neck and arms, he seems to particularly like one of my arms and i take it as a compliment that he likes to look at as he nearly breaks it ha ha. Musn't make him sound cruel because he is a lovely guy and I did get the odd moments revenge, he was also careful with my back and despite his flagrant disregard for the rules of a fair fight he is a gent if a very naughty one. He is also a fine wrestler and good company so if he asks you, do give him a go, you will be glad you did.
If you read one thing on my pages of waffle otherwise known as my profile please please read and believe that you must not be put off by the age of dadwrestle. I have friends my age who look older but more importantly his years have been spent learning how to wrestle so if you are serious about having a good wrestle and learning something about wrestling then jump at the chance of meeting this man.
Met at his place this morning and not only was he charming, good company and kind of dishy (oops shallow slip) he also illustrated what someone who knows what they are doing, can do and was good enough to give me tips on how I could apply holds better I was struggling to get on him, now if that's not generous i don't know what is. So ignore the age, gain from his experience and bask in his warmth. Oh dear, gone all poetic, how about - highly recommended you will have great fun and learn loads - simples.
hugefan is recommended by dadwrestle
Don't be fooled by the innocent approach! Strong, determined wrestler here. Over the year or so he's been wrestling he has picked up LOTS of technique, especially strong defense. We had a good hard wrestle, and he got some ace submissions off me...
Well, he used to call himself "only a beginner"! He can't use that excuse any more! Our second meet showed that this wrestler is fast gaining in technique and is using his powerful arms to good use. His defense is good and he regularly turned my attack to his advantage. As ever, good fun off the mats, with fun chat and conversation.
Don't bother with all the claptrap on the profile about weight! This is one tall, well built, strong guy who wants to wrestle! He has amazing upper body strength....great arms, too. And don't fall for the "I'm only a beginner" line!! He may be a rookie time wise, but he is picking up skill by the minute. Reliable, fun, safe and sane! We had a long, tough wrestle and the rematch is promised. Good sense of humour off the mats, too. SO...make sure you challenge this wrestler soon!
dadwrestle is recommended by ChineseGrappler
Just joined the long line of past opponents of this skilled and experienced wrestler. It's taken quite some time to finally meet on the mats (he is also a great host) but it was worth it. Had a very challenging but very enjoyable submission match. There's nothing about this guy not to recommend... except perhaps his sneaky resumption of the match when you think you're getting up to set up the next bout... haha
ChineseGrappler is recommended by dadwrestle
After a long time chatting, we at last met today! He might have been lighter than me, but this wrestler is strong, determined and much more skilled than he admits! Totally reliable, safe and sane, BUT a great opponent!! I really enjoyed our match up. Here's hoping we lock up again SOON!
dadwrestle is recommended by bullneck
My high respect for this highly experienced wrestler before our meeting was more than justified. He is a quick, skilled, clever and strong opponent - and very difficult to control on the mat. I highly recommended him to all those that are looking for a perfect challenge - you will get the powerful package with him. It will be a great pleasure and honour for me to meet this rough'n'tough fighting gentleman and perfect host soon again.
bullneck is recommended by dadwrestle
I had the great pleasure of hosting a short but intense session with this awesome wrestler! Bullneck lives up to his name...one bull of a wrestler! He is very strong, fast and very skilled on the mats. He looks great in his gear and 100% delivers on the mats. Off the mats he is a highly intelligent, interesting and fun person!! I just hope that some day we manage to get longer on the mats together! I have no hesitation at all in recommending this wrestler! He packs a punch, too, if you want to box!

A very accommodating host and a tough opponent, not to be underestimated.
zz9zza is recommended by dadwrestle
What can I say? Again, the pics do not lie! This guy is built to wrestle; huge arms and shoulders, and power behind them. In a very busy schedule, he made time to stop off for a mat session before heading north. Sane, safe, reliable, good conversation off the mats. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! A great opponent!
dadwrestle is recommended by WrestlerUK
Literally what can you say about Dadwrestle, which hasn't already been said. His a totally Gent, until you're on the mats and heed this warning DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HIM ! at your peril if you do. Totally safe & sane guy, who has forgotten more about wrestling then I'll ever know, a true expert. Great fun on and off the mats and can't wait for round 2 !
WrestlerUK is recommended by dadwrestle
Had pleasure of taking this big lad down again! He's big and he's mean, but the "dad" still took him down!
Now, here's a strong guy! Dont let him tempt you into a finger-interlock...there's huge power in his shoulders and arms. Reliable, safe and sane. Yes, he's a novice wrestler, but he's up for a good tough encounter and is certainly no pushover. If you get the chance, take him to the mats. Roll on the rematch!
PrimalChaos is recommended by dadwrestle
I had the privilege of wrestling this guy today!! The pictures do not lie. He had a powerful muscled frame and looks the perfect grappler. We had a great three way bout, plenty of hard, sweaty action. Sane, safe and reliable; a challenge on the mats; an interesting and sparky conversationalist off the mats. I could not have asked for a better way to spend an afternoon! Highly recommended actually sounds too tame!
dadwrestle is recommended by badjayson
It was my first time wrestling someone and Paul was ever so kind to take me on.
I was no match for his strength and skill. I'm so sure he went easy on me. He even took the time to share a few moves.
It was a good session, I enjoyed it so much I didn't realize we were wrestling for a few hours.
To sum it up, all I'll say is thank you Paul for being so kind and patient, look forward to round 2'
badjayson is recommended by dadwrestle
I am delighted to be able to write this wrestler's first recommendation! It took a time to fix a date, but he was totally reliable. Don't be fooled by his size. He is a tiger! He is determined on the mats, a natural wrestler. He's in good shape, strong, with stamina for a long, hard fight! We wrestled submission, and despite the weight and height difference he claimed some crafty subs! A most enjoyable, fun encounter. Roll on the next meet!

I couldn't have asked for a more gracious opponent for my very first match. He really went out of his was to ease my nerves and talked me through some of the basics, complimenting and correcting as necessary. I really enjoyed it and am very grateful for the help in taking the first step. He's a really nice guy, safe and sane, rookies be unafraid.
WillLondon is recommended by dadwrestle
I met Will tonight! He's starting out on this game. He was strong and determined, and looked great in his gear. He got stuck in on the mats straight away, and was a quick learner. Safe, sane and reliable. Fun on and off the mats! Don't miss out on the opportunity of wrestling this rookie....he's good! Round 2 soon I hope!
dadwrestle is recommended by Rik
When I arrived at Dadwrestle’s place, he was already fully kitted up and could hardly wait to have me on the mat. So it was the quickest start I ever had for a match. It was great fun to wrestle with this big and experienced guy and we both had our moments of dominating and submitting. Which was good and fun. Unfortunately this guy uses dirty tactics sometimes to get out of holds which is really a pity… NOT :-) No I adapted to his dirty tactic wrestle style which was fun and I was happy to learn a couple of new things from him. Interesting guy, great host and a very enthousiastic wrestler ! 100 % recommendation !
Rik is recommended by dadwrestle
WOW! One thing this man cannot claim to be is a novice, even though he has been wrestling a short time!! We has a fast, furious and fun time on the mats. He is very strong, with a hard muscled body that he uses to great effect. Here is an opponent who truly loves wrestling, is committed to the sport and wants to carry on learning. Safe, sane, totally reliable. On the mats he's a tiger; off them he is an intelligent fun, interesting guy, with great conversation. It was a delight meeting and wrestling him. 100% recommended!!

Now here is a wrestler!! It has taken a long while to fix a meet, but it was well worth waiting for! Here is a skilled, trained wrestler, strong, agile and built. He insures that his opponent enjoys the bout, while stretching him to his limits. I got just a few subs off him, but you can guess who came out on top! This wrestler is a MUST for those looking for a tough, big solid opponent. Can't wait for the rematch!! Good company off the mats, too.

dadwrestle is recommended by Fistfitem2m
Met Dadwrestle while passing through London and he keeps to his word and on time. Had a full on NHB wrestle with the guy but totally respect limits and safe. He can take everything you can throw at him and he’s very aggressive on the mats but still in a safe way. Be careful if he gets on top of ya as he knows how to handle his weight well.. and can punch him and bruise him up but the guy still keeps comin’ at ya and he just won’t back down. If you want a wrestle or a full on rough NHB wrestle with limits respected, he’s the guy to tangle with. Have to make sure I have a rematch soon!
dadwrestle is recommended by wjones
If you were in London and failed to wrestle this man, you have no idea what you have missed.
The name, "dadwrestle" says it all: he is a dad type who genuinely likes to wrestle. (Can it get any better ?!...) His enthusiasm on the mats is overwhelming, with aggression to match it !!! Indeed, he is aggressive, but in an immensely pleasant and exciting way. He is NOT disrespectful by any means. The fact that he never backs up from challenges, and gets quite creative when he wrestles, is a part of the fun game. Furthermore, there is a lot more to him than just wrestling. He is a true classy English Gentleman, with playful and intelligent wit, which tremendously enhances not only the wrestling encounter, but also the whole experience of meeting him and getting to know him. If you were lucky enough to experience and appreciate this side of his character, you might understand why he is this popular, as evident from all the raving reviews he has received. Must I be redundant and emphasize that regardless your skill level, age, and size, you should not miss the opportunity to meet "dadwrestle" on the mats (and perhaps off the mats), by any means !!!

I first noticed this guy's pics! Then we got chatting. Then a trip to UK was planned, and it all rolled out from there. But the pics only told half the story! Here is a pocket tank of a wrestler, well built, solid, muscled. He's skilled, fast and determined on the mats, eager to teach and coach and share his expertise. He is 100% reliable, safe and sane. Off the mats he is sociable and full of knowledge. He has wide interests, and loves to chat and get to know his opponent.
Watch out, this is one HOT wrestler! Accept his challenge when it comes!

18 July 13. Met Paul at his place tonight and wasn't sure what to expect. Well i was pleasantly surprised, not only is he a great wrestler and tough but he made me work hard for every sub. Now for those guys that don't want to wrestle older guys then your missing out. If i can still wrestle like Paul at when I am 61 then i will be a happy man. Was a great evening both wrestling and chatting. Nice one Paul, thank you

Its quite hard to find the superlatives to use to describe this wrestler! We have waited quite some time before we have been able to fix a meet. Mark was reliable, safe and sane. But that's only the start. He is skilled, strong and great fun to wrestle. He adjusts to your level to make the bout enjoyable for both. He looks great in gear, and the pics do not lie! he has a hard, muscled wrestlers physique. All in all one of the best encounters I have ever had!! Thank you! Good conversation, too, after the bout.
