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.
No holds barred

I wrestled this guy so many times in the past, and every single occasion was a blast!! It's so good to see him back on the scene! Totally reliable, tough but fun to fight. Don't miss out on the chance to face him. 100% PLATINUM RECOMMENDATION!!!
dadwrestle is recommended by Taigun21
I first met this man at a wrestling meet at the Rochdale ring in 2007 a very competent and tough wrestler he has forgotten more about Wrestling then I will ever know . I fully recommend him
Taigun21 is recommended by dadwrestle
Having missed the chance of wrestling this man when he had a spell in the UK, it was a real privilege to meet up with him on his home ground when I was on a wrestling tour of Australia! This is one strong, skilled and tough opponent who keeps it safe and sane but who brings 100% to the mats! Really looking forward to Round 2 once travel becomes a possibility again. Also, a most generous host. Platinum Start Recommendation! Don't miss out on wrestling this guy!
dadwrestle is recommended by Steeleyes
Met at Pippas on a group meet a couple of years ago.Much stronger than I am but a very fair,safe and sane session.
dadwrestle is recommended by caribkid
A few of my past opponents asked if I had been in touch with dadwrestle thinking that we might be a good match up, and were they ever right!!! Initially intimidated by his size and experience, I quickly realised I had nothing to worry about, as his focus is on having a good time, and we had such a good time that I did not notice the time flying by. Great build, strength, technical expertise, trash talk... all the ingredients for a proper dad/son, vet/rookie, heel/jobber fantasy and he made sure I knew my place in the end!!! Definitely want to get in some more bouts with this stud and would highly recommend to anyone!
caribkid is recommended by dadwrestle
It was a real pleasure to be able to fix a meet with this wrestler during his stay here in UK. It was very easy to arrange. He was spot on time! But all that is preparatory to saying that he delivered 100% on the mats.We had two hours of wrestling, and, as others have said, this guy is much stronger than he thinks he is! A great back and forth bout, testing each other out. The old veteran came out on top, but he had to fight for it!! Looks great in his gear too. Off the mats, good conversation and a great sense of humour. Perfect way to spend a Friday afternoon! I just hope we can fit in the return bout SOON! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation....dont miss your chance to fight this man!
ukpitbull is recommended by dadwrestle
Two vets of the UK wrestling scene gave each other another good hammering! The Pitbull has lost none of his style during lockdown....mean as ever! Was ready in boots, trunks and ring jacket when I arrived. The sweat soon flowed! Always a pleasure to lock up on the mats with this star wrestler!
Another cracking morning's wrestling on this legend of the wrestling world's mats! Can't recommend him (and his "stable" of wrestlers!) highly enough. Perfect way to spend a morning!!
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!
dadwrestle is recommended by little Tony
Had a great meeting after alot of chatting. He definitely knows his stuff and had me locked up alot - very safe despite the difference in stats. Would meet again :)
little Tony is recommended by dadwrestle
After a gap caused by Covid, we managed to snatch an hour or so wrestling on my recent visit to Lincolnshire. Tony has not wasted lockdown! Biceps like steel and a mean side headlock. Always a pleasure to tangle with this guy!
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! He might call himself "little" but he is determined and kept on coming back for more! Really enjoyed my time on mats with this wrestler. Give him a go...he's learning fast! Highly recommended!
dadwrestle is recommended by saqwer1234
I tried the Dadwrestle school of wrestling this weekend, and got well and truly schooled! As has been said many times before this big man is an incredible wrestler, he has a counter manoeuvre for whatever you try on him, and is always two or three moves ahead of what you’re thinking. Off the mats he is the nicest guy you will ever meet and a great conversationalist. I’m already looking forward to the next time we meet, I just need to recover from the Mr Bader impression first!
Round Two was even better than the first against this legend of the mats. Although he still had the upper hand, it was a bit more evenly matched this time. As ever, off the mats he was his usual gracious and friendly self. Already looking forward to the next time
saqwer1234 is recommended by dadwrestle
Had my first ( I hope the first of many!! ) session on the mats with this great guy! This is one strong, tough, tenacious heavyweight! A delight to wrestle! Immensely hospitable, it was easy to set up the meet. We were on the mats for over three hours, but the time flew by. He has amazing upper body strength which he uses to advantage! Also, for a relative rookie, he's learning fast! Safe and sane at all times. This is the sort of wrestler you hope to meet. I have no hesitation is saying this is a PLATINUM STAR 100% recommendation. If he challenges you, ACCEPT!
Round 2!!! Damn, this wrestler is learning too fast...even using some of my tricks on me! A perfect weekend of wrestling; dreadful weather, so no need to go out, just stay put and wrestle! Great host and a wrestler who just keeps coming back for more!
dadwrestle is recommended by GrizzlyJim
Awesome meet up, put up a great fight and learned a fair bit along the way. Would defo recommend a wrestle if you get the chance; don't let your guard down though because he'll have you on your back before you know it.
Top gent off the mat too with a good time spent trading stories.
GrizzlyJim is recommended by dadwrestle
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting this big man on a quick visit to the NE of UK! Let me say for starters, the pics do not lie! This is one built heavyweight who looks the part and delivers on the mats. He has awesome upper body strength....watch out for his arms! Despite an injured hand, he was ready to rumble. The action was fast and furious, with submissions on both sides. He is that perfect opponent who can be a good defensive wrestler, but can turn the tables in a flash to take the offensive position. Off the mats, he a has a great sense of humour and is fun to chat with, before the battle resumes! What a great addition to the heavyweights here in UK! Without doubt, this is a 100% PLATINUM STAR RECOMMENDATION!
dadwrestle is recommended by ukrassler
Having known Dadwrestle for many years, and wrestled him at several group meetings, he recently came to my place. Each time we've met, we've both got down to a good hard-fought contest, then looked forward to the next match, rather than writing about it. The time has come to put that right. For the benefit of others thinking about wrestling him, I can report that our matches are always an energetic workout, safe and sane with mutual respect and lots of sweat! Highly recommended.
ukrassler is recommended by dadwrestle
I am really not sure why I have never written a recommendation for this legend of the UK wrestling scene! We have wrestled regularly in the past. This is one class act! He's strong, well built and skilled both as Brit Pro and submission. A meet with him is always safe, sane, fun and a challenge! I can't speak too highly of him! If you get a chance, wrestle this man! 100% PLATINUM RECOMMENDATION.....one of the best!
dadwrestle is recommended by Beartrouble
This lovely man was my first match and has now set the bar unbelievably high as he was fantastic and very accommodating. If new or not u can't find a better opponent than this gentleman who is unbelievable strong fyi! Hope I get another chance to meet him as had a great time and can't wait for more
Beartrouble is recommended by dadwrestle
Now here is a great new addition to the wrestling scene! I met this man at a group session at Barnet, and I think I was probably the first person he took on. This is one tough, strong, fast rookie who will not be a rookie for long. Safe and sane, but with a great "fighting" spirit, whatever was dished out, he came back for more...immediately!! We had several sessions on the mats, and each time it was clear he had learned lessons and technique. Off the mats, a good guy to chat with! Roll on Round 2!! No hesitation in giving him a resounding 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation. Accept if he challenges you...you will have fun!
maxiwrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
I had a session on the mats at the Barnet meet yesterday with this feisty newcomer! Despite the weight difference, he was game to step on the mats with me. He's strong and determined, and very quickly was picking up and executing moves. This guy is going to prove to be a fast, capable wrestler! He looks great in his gear too! If you get the chance, take him on. You won't regret it! Off the mats, he is engaging and fun to chat with. All in all, a 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation. I look forward to wrestling him again.
dadwrestle is recommended by poseidon
Well this has been a long time coming. Dadwrestle, the legend that is, actually came to my home to wrestle, an honour.
we got down to it and we had a hot sweaty wrestle. strong and a man mountain.
He is everything every recommendation has said on his long list of opponents.
subs , pins the lot.
just keep wrestling mate , you are the top.
poseidon is recommended by dadwrestle
I have been trying to think of a word to describe this wrestler, and it's FIREPLUG! This is one of the strongest guys I have ever encountered on the mats. He might not be tall but he makes up for it in raw power! This was a last minute arrangement after months if not years, of chatting. He's a gracious host and it was easy to arrange things. Our battle was fast and furious, and I have to own that he took more subs than me. Safe, sane, tough and a perfect opponent. I enjoyed every minute of our meet, which i hope will be the first of many. 110% PLATINUM Recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by Mr D Pro
Have met Dadwrestle a few times now and each time as enjoyable as the time before.
Possibly one of the first wrestlers I had ever met from the Southern Region so always a North/South divide and battle between us, which is great for us.
A great guy who can be very wicked when he needs to be.
No hesitation in meeting. Rematches are definatley on the cards. Until next time.
Mr D Pro is recommended by dadwrestle
Really great guy! We have wrestled in the past! He's a tough cookie with lots of pro tricks up his sleeve. Safe, sane, fun ad skilled! Roll on our next battle! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation
The feud is gaining in intensity! Next stage is a falls count anywhere brawl in the ring!

I had the chance to meet and roll with this lovely guy on a trip up to the NE! Easy to make arrangements and fix style of the meet. Safe and sane, too! An added extra was the chance to order some new gear from this amazing stylist! He seems to be able to conjure up whatever you want in the way of wrestling accoutrements !! What a great gift to the wrestling world! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation

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
A chance to take on this amazing wrestler on his own mats in the North EAST! Extraordinary how he fights bigger guys like me. We had a good hour and a half of full on subs wrestling! Could not have been better. He so resilient! I look forward to testing him out again on the South Shields mats!
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!
Had the chance to head up to the NE so couldn't resist the chance to take on this beast on his mats! He's put on some pounds, which is hot! The encounter was as fun as ever!! Roll on my next visit north!
dadwrestle is recommended by JedWrestla
It was a great honour to have the opportunity to spar with this wrestling legend. A genuine and friendly guy who immediately put me at my ease. Took me through a whole range of basic moves and holds allowing me to test my strength against his powerful body and to see just how it felt to wrestle a real pro. I knew I was in safe hands and he made it great fun and all seem so easy but make no mistake this one heck of a tough strong guy. Can't recommend him enough especially to anyone just starting out. Thanks a million.
JedWrestla is recommended by dadwrestle
I had the pleasure of meeting this guy when I was up in the North West! He's new to to the world of wrestling, but is keen to get on the mats. We chatted a fair deal before we met as, unsurprisingly, he was nervous about taking on a much heavier guy. We had a good few hours exchanging holds and testing each other out! Don't be fooled by his size....he's strong and tough, a resilient guy! I look forward to meeting him again. He will prove to be a worthy opponent for a wrestler of similar weight. GOLD STAR recommendation.
Ronald W is recommended by dadwrestle
Met this man mountain years back at a Clash meet in USA! Nicest guy out, but as tough as nails and can take anything you throw at him! We have been talking a rematch since, but never been able to fix it so we are in the same place at the same time. BUT the challenge is still on. This is one top class wrestler! Don't miss your chance to take him on!! GOLD STAR Recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by Manc Man
He's quick for a big fella and was all over me in my matroom, I imagine given more space he would royally work me over, but he did manage to get me down and let me have it, hehe.
Manc Man is recommended by dadwrestle
Well this cocky stud just took on more than he could chew when he faced me! Lots of trash talk before hand about what he was going to do to me! I let him think he could dominate me...then showed him who was indeed "the dad"...nicely humiliated! Now he's back, still talking big! Well, the rematch will prove who is the alpha wrestler! BRING IT ON!
Heelsdelight is recommended by dadwrestle
It's a real pleasure to add this wrestler's first recommendation to his profile! Easy to fix up a date to meet; punctual, safe and sane. That's the boring bit over! What the photos don't show you is the strong, tough, muscled guy that faced me on the mats. A good two hours of wrestling followed, yes with me coming out on top, but having to fight for it. In my book, the perfect scenario! With some judo background, he caught me out on a few occasions, easily turning me. Good body; looks the part in black speedos! Off the mats, he's quiet, charming and eager to have fun. If you get the chance, take this guy on! You won't regret it! 100% PLATINUM STAR recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by Londonmeet
Fantastic guy, very experienced and strong wrestler. Highly recommend!
Londonmeet is recommended by dadwrestle
Every now and again you seem to run out of superlatives when describing a new opponent! Londonmeet might be new to the wrestling scene, but he is a natural. Tall, with a a tight, hard muscled body, he is fast and furious on the mats. In the few hours we wrestled he displayed his ability to learn fast and turn your favourite holds back on you.....to good effect! Like the Duracel bunny....he kept on coming back for more....and more! In fact...the perfect opponent. Add to that, he is a handsome guy who looks at his best in gear. Easy to make arrangements with and punctual. Safe, sane and a real bull strength wise. I hope to have many more mat sessions with this awesome guy! 100% PLATINUM RECOMMENDATION!

New season starts with a tussle with dadwrestle. Good workout and I picked up a few tips to refine some of my moves too. I made him work for positioning and we had a good laugh at the same time (during the intensity of course !!).
Paul is a great guy to wrestle. Good fun too. Never a dull moment. You won't be disappointed.
steve50a is recommended by dadwrestle
What better way to get back in action than to face this guy on the mats! We rolled an hour or two, and he proved the tough strong opponent he always was.
Was it three years since our last bout? If it was, it was my fault for not chasing up this star of the mats. He's beefier now than I remembered, but still one hell of a class act on the mats! It won't be so long before the rematch, I hope!
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!

Met several years back in New York. Was an honor then to take on an iconic legend and will be the same when we have our eventual rematch. Great guy, easy to set up and just all around fun. Hard to ask for anything more. A 5 star opponent. Double thumbs up to Dad👍👍

Have met this gentle giant a few times now. An experienced, safe wrestler with loads of stamina who is happy to work at my level but ready to remind me, with a subtle change in hold and/or pressure, who is in charge. Can’t recommend enough and look forward to further meets.

Had some really great tussles with this guy at meets in Manchester! A tough, defensive wrestler who gives it everything hes got on the mats. Also a great asset to the wrestling world in the way he took on organising meets so efficiently and well. He come with a 100% GOLD STAR recommendation fro me!

Met up with this wrestler when he was visiting Houston. He was totally accomodating since he is a more advanced wrestler than I am. We traded many holds and I did most of the tapping out. Had a great time meeting up and hope to meet up again to continue where we left off. I recommend meeting up with Dadwrestle whenever possible. Great fun!

Great to see this feisty wrestler back on Meetfighters!! We met on one of my visits to Houston a few years back. I cannot recommend this wrestler too highly! Easy to arrange the meet.

dadwrestle is recommended by Tanker
Ah how times change! Years ago as a rookie wrestler when this evil heel was in his pomp he bullied me mercilessly (as a proper heel should). But revenge is sweet and best served cold. Yesterday he put up a good fight, but was my plaything and I made him suffer (Had I known he was going to describe me as a behemoth he would have suffered even more)! A character, out of Agatha Christie (One of the more upper class ones naturally) !
Great sense of humour and very easy to talk to. The dear jobber has my highest recommendation!
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.
One of the great Characters of British Wrestling, big strong skilled , a heel from central casting
But safe & sane
Formerly Mauler Paul which describes his wrestling style, pity he doesn't 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 a long time since we last wrestled! Have to admit that in a brief tussle at a group meet in Manchester this behemoth proved he was the better guy!! As he said, he now claims the Heavyweight title! GOLD STAR recommendation for this great wrestler!
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!
dadwrestle is recommended by Glasgow1971
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
GREAT to see this guy back in action!
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!

14/12/2109 - Had the great pleasure of meeting dadwrestle at the group meet at Pippa's. What a guy. Was definitely looking forward locking horns with this big guy and was not disappointed. Very strong guy with a great physique. Had a good wrestle with him and later a gut punch session where we were evenly matched. He can certainly take some hard punches. All in all a very enjoyable encounter. Certainly looking forward to meeting him again and preferably in the ring. A charming man off the mats as well. Highly recommended.

Now there are some legends on this site who I have really wanted to wrestle! This guy is one of them! We finally got to hit the mats at a group meet in Manchester. The photos do not lie! This is one awesome physique! We had two sessions; one a submission grapple; the other, a gut punching session. Both were some of the best experiences I have had. Thank you, mate! If you get the chance, take this man on. You will not regret it! 100% PLATINUM STAR Recommendation

Tough guy this. Had a great grapple with him. Don't give him an inch because he will take a mile. Had me sweating in no time and fighting hard. Very friendly bloke off the mats but you can forget that when the match starts. Shows no mercy. He's great with the verbals too. Awesome opponant.

WOW! Got my arse kicked by this great wrestler at a group meet in Manchester! What a great guy! Good, solid muscled physique; looks amazing in his gear. Perfect attitude on the mats, tough, aggressive, safe and sane. What more could you ask? He certainly underestimates his skill level. He is a natural wrestler! One of the best submission sessions I have ever had. I really hope that Round 2 happens soon, and that we have more time. This guy is a real star. If you get the chance, wrestle him! 100% PLATINUM STAR Recommendation

I have never really rated my skills as a pro wrestler, but when this guy challenged me to a ring bout at a group meet in Manchester I thought "Well, what the hell, let's give it a go"! It was a David v Goliath match weight wise, and Goliath came out on top LOL! This guy can certainly take a beating with style! He sold perfectly. We went for a 2 falls, 2 submissions or a KO bout. Good old style Brit Pro. I have to admit, I had a blast, which was totally due to this amazing pro style skills. I hoe Round 2 happens soon! I think this "goodguy" might just have unleashed the pro heel in me! 100% PLATINUM STAR Recommendation

After quite a bit of chat we managed to bridge the north/south divide and meet at a group meet in Manchester. I certainly wasn't disappointed! He lives up to his profile. tough and rough, he fought back as I brought my best game to beat him down. Sane and safe, but clearly up for a good, hard scrap. Pity was we didn't get to have the second session we wanted; weather and the train defeated us! But Round 2 will happen! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation!

It was such a great pleasure to wrestle dadwrestle again !!! He was as aggressive as I remember and even more seasoned --- and --- better than the first couple of times we wrestled when I visited London six years ago. It was really too bad we waited this long time before we met again --- and hopefully we will not wait as much till the next time !!!
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 !!!

On one of his rare visits to UK we managed to snatch a two hour session on the Barnet mats! Action packed match up, this wrestler has lost none of his speed, strength and ability!! It was a pleasure hitting the mats again! This wrestler never disappoints.
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!

I’ve been chatting with this legend of the UK wrestling scene for ages. It was great to finally meet up with him in person. He was the first guy to take me on at a recent group meet at Pippa’s. Needless to say, he had the definite edge on the mats but it was a great battle. It was a pleasure socializing with him at the group dinner that evening. Highly recommended.

After chatting for literally years, I had the real pleasure of meeting and at last wrestling this great guy! We hit the mats at a group meet in Manchester. As expected, this is one classy guy. He looked great in gear and delivered a close, tough submission match. I only had the one go with him, but certainly look forward to his next UK trip for the rematch! Safe, sane but about all a fun and skilled wrestler! If he challenges you, accept. You wont be disappointed! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation!

Wow!. That's all I can say after wrestling this very strong, firstly and firey opponent!. Had the privilege of wrestling this guy at the meet in Manchester and oh boy, he did not dissapoint!. We had a really tough, rough, sweaty bout which for me is a good challenge and I loved every minute of our match!. Subs were hard to get but the challenge this strong, experienced wrestled presented, I relished.
He's a really great guy off the mats but very safe and sane on the mats with good aggression!.
Thanks for an awesome match!, 100% gold recommendation for you too! Looking forward to match no2. Definitely challenge this wrestler, you'll have a great match!.
Manchester 12th October
Rounds 2 and 3 at the meet were as awesome as our first encounter!, rough, tough, sweaty with good aggression ( safe n sane ) exactly how I like my match!.
I really enjoyed our 2 bouts and this wrestler is one tough cookie!, I really had to work hard to get submissions!.
I recommend this guy 100% too and I look forward to our next tough encounter!

Rounds 2 & 3! I help manage to clear him of an early morning headache by taking this stud of a wrestler to the mats early on in a meet in Manchester! He showed no signs of ill effects!! Great tough, rough, sane sessions with subs on both sides. You couldn't ask for more! I just love wrestling this man!
This is one tough, determined strong wrestler!! Was delighted to be able to lock up with him at a meet in Manchester! Looks great in his singlet but don't let that distract you! He will be after the first submission as soon as you hit the mats. Safe and sane, goes without saying. If he challenges you, say yes....you won't regret it! You will have a blast. 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation

Finally got to meet up with DadWrestle and it was worth the wait! He’s a tough and brutal guy on the mats, yet a gentleman off. He can take a beating and give one right back, and then some. A great opponent all around. There’ll be a rematch in the future because there are still some things to settle!

Sometimes pictures can lie, but in this case they don't! And indeed, the reality in the flesh is even better!! After a short exchange of messages, we managed a brief but full on wrestle before a business dinner. I wouldn't have missed this match for the world. Strong, tough and imaginative, this was one fun, exhausting battle. He also looks great in his gear. Safe and sane on the mats; off a good guy to chat with. Roll on a return visit! 100% PLATINUM Recommendation.

Don't know why it took so long to meet Paul. Don't let his name and age put you off, he is a gentleman on and off the mats and he has a mean headscissors. Highly recommended.
Round 2 today, second match of the day for me so I thought I'd be too tired but Paul made me feel at home and we started wrestling straight away as I walked through the door. More scissors on me and he can squeeze!
Round 3 in the ring at Pippas and Paul took me on in the Pro ring for a Pro wrestle. He is still a great wrestler 👍
ShockR is recommended by dadwrestle
Pippas ring at Manchester I had chance to face this Pro star! Pro is not my favoured style, but couldn't resist the sight of him leaning back into a cornerpost taunting guys to face him! Fun session....he knows his stuff!
Good, tough session tonight! This wrestler has powerful thighs so watch out for his head scissors! Hr just keeps on coming back for more! Fun on and off the mats.
We finally got to hit the mats today! Great guy!! Eager to wrestle, strong legs put to good use in scissor holds. Safe, sane and reliable. Looks good in his gear, too. Highly recommended!! Hope round 2 is not too long in coming!!
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
Round 2....even better than Round 1! This master of the mats just gets better and better! Off the mats, a real blast at a party!
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!

Great and fun "big vs. small" match with dadwrestle. I had to do my quickest moves to avoid being trapped under him, and place a hold on this guy. Lovely person to talk to also. Thanks for this nice bout ! See you soon :-)

As we climbed into the ring this guy commented "This is David v Goliath"! It was true, even to the end of the story! Despite the huge height and weight difference this was a great match up! It was like wrestling with an eel! Fast and skilled, this wrestler is a superb opponent! Whatever I went for, he countered and slid out. Off the mats, he was fun to be with, with a strong sense of humour. He looks good in his gear too! Roll on a rematch! 100% PLATINUM Recommendation!
dadwrestle is recommended by ChokeHoldBear
Dad made me feel very welcome as soon as I walked, through the doors at my first meet. Within no time we had got in one of the mat rooms and were checking each other out. Dad's reputation precedes him so I knew he was good and could handle a rough match plus he is a sturdy man who looks good in his gear.
I got to work straight away with headlocks and chokes, but the big guy got some taps from me. I got my scissors around his neck a few times too. Dad's gut is also just calling out to be punched.... hard, so I did, many times whilst he was under me. 😉
Dad is a great guy and I enjoyed meeting and showing him what I can do. Roll on round 2 big man 😎
ChokeHoldBear is recommended by dadwrestle
Now here is one classy bear! I have to admit that I TOTALLY underestimated this wrestler. He's probably one of the strongest guys I have ever wrestled. He's safe and sane, but delivers a tough, aggressive bout with ease. Beware the signature move! The chokehold is applied with swiftness and deadly accuracy. LOL its a killer! He also bring an obvious skill level to the mats which is great to experience. In gear, he certainly looks the part, with a big strong, beefy physique. This was one of those meets that I will long remember! No doubt about it 100% PLATINUM Recommendation. If you get the chance, wrestle him!

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
Long gap to arrange Round 2, but a meet in Manchester gave us the opportunity! Same amazing physique and strength. Tough and feisty against a bigger opponent. What more could you ask of an opponent? Don't be distracted by the winning smile, either LOL!
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!

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.
24/9/19 Another meet with this star of Meetfighters. He is cracking on a bit now so Isn't as good as he was but.....ha ha, no, it was an excellent meet and he has learned a few dirty tricks since we last met. I had to batter him to put him in his place and I hope he isn't too bruised (he would have done the same to me though). It was literally delightful to meet up again; it has been too long. Thanks mate.
Tynesider is recommended by dadwrestle
An early birthday gift was meeting up with the "Beast from the North"! He hoped I would be bruised. Sadly, his fist taps have left no marks at all! BUT I do have to admit, I got my arse well and truly kicked by this awesome guy! Safe 'n sane but as tough as hell, I had to use every dirty trick in my considerable repertoire to get the two subs I did get! Its a total pleasure to count this man as one of my best wrestling friends!! If you get the chance, MEET HIM!
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!

This time we met at the matroom in Barnet. Said he'd go rougher and harder on me this time after all the taunts I'd sent him in messages... And he did. Didn't even give me a chance to get into my gear. Instead, I was immediately put into various standing locks before being forced on the floor. And the next several hours were me trying to break out of his holds. I've got a reasonable amount of strength but Dad wore it all out of me. Mind you he did thump his fists into my gut and chest and back on dozens of occasions. Managed to get a few locks on Dad but he powered out of them easily. By the end of the match I physically couldn't take anymore, I was totally drained. His bear hugs and scissors are insanely tight. Amazed by how expert this man is on the mats, but I enjoyed every second. Left with a lot of aches and bruises after but I wouldn't trade them! I taunt him because of our age difference but he showed me who the tougher man was today. Definitely up for Round 3.
I didn't go into this wrestle as a jobber but I felt like one after leaving. I put up a good fight (I think) considering I massively underestimated his strength. Whilst I was able to apply some holds they didn't have much of an effect. Saying that.... I didn't make it easy for Dad to force me to tap. The leg scissors across my head and then my torso wore me right down but the arm locks became quickly unbearable. Determined to get a tap from Dad next time. I'll definitely be more prepared.
OxonWelsh is recommended by dadwrestle
Round 2! This time upwards of four hours battling. We took our fight to Barnet mat room, so had lots of space! As before this was one long, tough, rough session. Again he took lots of punishment, but simply wouldn't admit he was beaten. No one could ask for a better match. This is one blast of an opponent. Roll on Round 3!!!
This was one of those encounters that just fell into place easily! After a short time chatting, we fixed a mutually convenient time and place and the fight was on! He turned up spot on time, we stripped and took it from there. This handsome guy certainly absorbed some punishment, but just kept on coming back for more and more! Strong, with nice iron hard biceps and a flat hard belly, he fought back hard and fierce. We wrestled for a good two and a half hours. This is one tough, feisty competitor! The rematch was promised as we parted.....and it will happen! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation. A wrestler not to be missed!

Another long gap followed by an early morning scrap! As always a tough, hard hitting match up. This time, I had the upper hand but I have the distinct feeling that the word "revenge" might be in the air before too long! Great guy on and off the mats; safe, sane and reliable but tough!! 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation. Roll on the rematch!
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.

Not even a date on my last recommendation! It's YEARS since I wrestled this amazing guy last! He's beefier now, turning into a real body builder wrestler. Still strong and feisty. What more can you ask for? Reliable, punctual and fun. It's just a real pity we are located at opposite ends of the country. HIGHEST Recommendation!

I have to say I was not a little nervous having accepted a challenge from this very experienced wrestler. What had I agreed to?
Though he could have easily crushed me Dadwrestle was kind enough to tone down to my level and we had a very enjoyable evening swapping holds and chatting. If you get the chance, this very skillful fighter, interesting and humorous man is highly recommended by me (& many, many others).

I always admire much lighter guys who say "yes" to a match! This wrestler was no exception! As others have said, he underestimates his own strength! He is a powerful defensive wrestler with a style that is tough to counter. Add to that a great sense of humour and you have the ingredients for a fun, sweaty evening ! So, if he challenges you, say yes! You will not be disappointed! 100% Gold Star Recommendation

Giving away just shy of 100lb, I was never going to win this catchweight contest. But boy, I had fun trying! An absolute gentleman in every respect, there's nothing I can add to the hundreds of recommendations preceding this one. Except this: that if ever they publish a book, "100 Wrestlers to meet before you Die," then DadWrestle will surely appear in it. And in the top ten, I'll wager. A must-meet for every serious wrestler here. Thanks, DadWrestle!

I was delighted (and a bit surprised considering the weight differential) to be invited to a small group meet at Walthamstow by The Flashman! It proved to be a really fun meet. The word "feisty" has been used to describe him, and its TRUE! He came at me in the ring determined to take me down. LOL he failed, but honourably! He's tough and very strong for his size. He does the pro style really well! I hope I get another invitation to face him again in the ring! 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION

I have been looking for a match with Dadwrestle for many reasons : his experience, his status within this community, the number of opponents and for the tenure of our chats that has revealed a very interesting personality. All confirmed by the actual encounter which has been fun and I dare say “formative” for me. He is a strong experienced wrestler and a true gentleman!
Dadwrestle doesn’t need any reccomandations yet I highly encourage everyone to have a go with him to get the true spirit of this site at its best!
Look forward to a further meeting!

This match up shows just how well this site works. A friend from my Australian trip recommended this wrestler. It was easy to set up a meet during his UK trip. We took to the mats at Barnet. Yes, he is a rookie, but he's a natural on the mats. Strong and resilient, he learns quickly and takes coaching well. We had a blast of a few hours wrestling, before taking our ease at a local pub! Off the mats, this is one of the most interesting opponents I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I look forward to Round 2 with eager expectation! This will be one hell of a wrestler....soon...so watch out! 100% Platinum Recommendation

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

Just thought I ought to update this recommendation! We are now regular opponents in 1on1 bouts and at Meets at Barnet. As I said before, he never disappoints! Great physique, strong and feisty. One of the best!
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!

6/4/19 met again , have lost count of the number of matches we've had over 20 years. but he's been nagging me for an NHB match for ages, this day we had the chance and went for it, I battered him! but he lived to tell the tale til the next time ! great guy , meet him or miss out!!

Got just a little of my own back against the long term opponent, especially after the beating he handed out in April. As ever, a GREAT guy to wrestle. You could not ask for more in an opponent!
HOW ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN! After lots 0f trash talking, we faced each other in an NHB match up; AND CAN THIS FIGHTER PUNCH! I have to own up I was completely outclassed! Sir, you are the champ!
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.

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....
25/06/2019: A while since weʼve tussled, so it was time for the new lean and mean dadwrestle to put me through my paces and show me whoʼs boss. Which he certainly did. And which is always an immense amount of sweaty fun!

A long awaited and hugely enjoyed (be me lol) rematch with this Star of the Mats! Simply one of the best there is!!
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!

Well, what a great guy this is! Having chatted a short time, we fixed a weekday morning meet at the Barnet room. Arrangements easy to make; he was punctual and ready to roll. Then the fun started! Don't underestimate this tall wrestler! He claims rookie status but he's strong, feisty and determined on the mats and has killer legs! BEWARE the scissors! He the best sort of wrestler; he keeps on coming back for more! I REALLY look forward to Round 2. He learns quickly and is only too ready to try out what hes just learned. Off the mats he's quiet and yes, shy, but good fun to be with. 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation.

I met paul at Barnet on Sunday 17th February group session he a big gentle guy. It was brief roll on the matts. Mabe at some point we meet in the future for a longer match
On this occasion I had 1.1 match with paul at Barnet matroom on Sunday 23rd June he a big guy but I gave my all we both worked hard on the matts i got a few submissions of him. Which he got the same with me. It was a pleasure to wrestle paul and I highly recommend him. I hope we can have another match in near future.

Had the pleasure of a 1on1 with this wrestler at the Barnet mat room! He had no hesitation in taking on a bigger opponent and showed his metal in our match. He is strong and tough, much stronger than you might expect for his build. We battled for well over two hours. An excellent way to spend a Sunday evening. Roll on the next round!!
Met this feisty guy again in a 4 way wrestling afternoon! Always huge fun on the mats! Loads of energy and out to make sure everyone enjoys the wrestling! Who could ask for more! GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION!
I had had Dan in my sights for some time and it was great to get the opportunity to wrestle him at a meet in Barnet. Although there was a considerable weight differential, he came at me hard and fast. We only had one session on the mats, but it was enough to prove that I want to test him out again....SOON! Safe, sane and fun opponent! Roll on Round 2.....longer next time, too! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I'm so honoured to meet these two veteran MF wrestlers, Dadwrestle & Mikeswuk at the same time!
Big, strong & skillful, Dadwrestle have taught me a good lesson on how to behave as a "good son"...
Three of us had a great match & fun. I have been disciplined: being locked in various locks & trapped in so many positions from both dads that I can hardly escape. I look very weak in front of these two veterans.
Off the mat, Dadwrestle is a very nice gentleman. He is those that you can easily make friends with.
Alan2005sg is recommended by dadwrestle
What can I say, simply one of the best I have EVER met!! Arrangements were easy to make. He kept in contact beforehand and was punctual. Then the fun began! This is one fast, extremely skilled, strong, ripped wrestler. A delight to roll with! He adjusted to my skill level at once, but made it clear who was the better wrestler in a cheeky, and entirely appropriate way. I was given a master class in defense and attack. If you get the opportunity to tangle with this guy, say YES at once! You will not regret it! Off the mats, fun and intelligent. What more can you ask of an evening on the mats? 100% PLATINUM Recommendation!

Dadwrestle is an excellent wrestler - a beast on the mats but a gentleman off mats. Don't think he was expecting my armbar which made his submission even sweeter. Highly recommended.

10/6/19 - third meeting this time at mine, last minute meeting arranged. He looked bigger and felt heavier than before, we had a great time again, tasting each other’s strength
10/3/16 - second time we met at Barnet matroom in a heavyweight foursome. Had a great wrestle with the strong big guy
30/1/14 - I had a wrestle with him in a hotel room. Big strong man, we had a good tussle and i could tell we were both enjoying it. He did try to wind me with some belly splashes but didnt, instead i enjoyed them. Very nice gentleman, really glad i met him and will meet him again soon hopefully

Round 3! Last minute meet up. He's stronger than ever! Awesome bearhug! Hosted the meet, kindly. As ever, tough but great fun!
Belly to belly again with this BIG MAN at a small group meeting at Barnet! As ever, safe and sane, but a formidable mountain to move on the mats! Great fun!
Met this BIG guy for a brief but satisfying hotel scrap! Totally reliable safe and sane opponent! Next time we meet on the mats for the next heavyweight CLASH!

Another fantastic bout with dadwrestle. Lovely guy, skilled wrestler and super-friendly to boot. What more could you want?
Had only heard good things about dadwrestle and they were all confirmed when we met for an excellent bout at Barnet. I was a little unsure given the size difference but I needn’t have worried. Going easy on me in the beginning, once we got the measure of each other’s strength the real contest started. Dadwrestle is a smooth operator using his strength, skill and stamina to great effect and getting me into some superb holds causing me to submit quite a few times! We also traded a few safe and sane punches – all in good fun. A very engaging and friendly guy off the mats, I too can only agree it was a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Thank you for taking on this ‘lightweight’. Hope we can arrange another bout at some point. Highly recommended.

Had a chance to wrestle this fearless guy again! Stronger than you think he takes his punishment, but beware, he is more than capable of dishing it out too! Immensely personable off the mats! This is one star turn, guys!
What a nice guy! I am always amazed and delighted when wrestlers a lot lighter than me accept a challenge. I had heard great things about this man, so was doubly pleased when he agreed to meet. On the mats he was a tough, defensive wrestler, taking what was thrown at him but also sanely aggressive in his attack. He underestimates his strength and skill! This is now no rookie! He also packs a good, hard punch (if you agree to it!). This was no mismatch; the heavy guy had to work for his submission! Off the mats, he's charming guy and fun to chat with. All in all, a superb way to spend a Saturday morning! Roll on Round 2 100% GOLD STAR Recommendation!

trash talking for a couple of years...happened to be in the same area at the same time so a match was sorted quickly!
Needless to say, I expected to be worked over badly...shockingly, that didn't happen and I got the "victory" in the small confines of a hotel bout.
The grandad wants a rematch on mats, he's got one ;)

Well, after what seems like years of chatting and trash talking we finally managed to meet up in Leicestershire of all places! Despite a lack of proper wrestling mats we managed a reasonable exchange! By that I mean I went down big time to this great man mountain of a wrestler! Yes, he's a big lad, as you might expect, but he's also fast, strong, skilled and huge fun to wrestle! Next time it will be on proper mats; lets see if I can do better! That said, I did get one or two subs off him. A delight to meet and fight this man! This is one of the best guys I have ever tangled with. If he challenges you, accept immediately. You will have a great time with him. 100% PLATINUM STAR Recommendation!
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.

Last minute Match Request (after a time waster on here cancelled on me after weeks of chatting!) came up trumps! Had a good solid hour of submission grappling with this ace wrestler! Great fun! Safe, sane and 100% reliable!
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.

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
Another great session on the mats! Beware, he's picked up some awesome technique!!
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!

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.

It just gets better and better wrestling this slim, tough guy!
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!

Not sure why I hadn't written a recommendation after our first meet a few years back in London. Met again at a group meet in Manchester! This is one smart, skilled wrestler who is happy to step on the mats with a much bigger guy. Looks great in his gear and is a fine technical wrestler. Safe, sane and fun to fight! !00% GOLD STAR Recommendation. A wrestler to look out for!

Looking forward to meeting again in the near future and of course highly recommended.

"he kept on top for most of our time wrestling" - I thought I was on top only when a tight pair of scissors held me up there!
I think I might have been able to do better if he hadn't got on top of me... only I couldn't've stopped that either!
Still, I was planning on working on my scissors anyway...
Nice guy (& safe, sane, knew what he was doing), but the result was what you'd expect!

I had the chance to hit the mats with this skilled wrestler at a meet in London. I certainly wasn't disappointed! He is fast, very strong, and clearly loves the wrestling game.

Caught up at last with this hospitable wrestler after his move to Southend! He's better than ever. Sells a good Brit Pro bout well, handles himself well too on the mats. Fun, safe, sane and totally reliable. An excellent 2 hour post Christmas! Hope this becomes a regular fixture! 100% Gold Star Recommendation

Had another great time with this tough man. Always learn a lot from him (including dirty tactics, lol) and have a great time. Reliable, safe, sane and so easy to chat to. Know we'll meet again and he's so understanding with my busy schedule. Do wrestle this man if you get the chance, you won't regret it.
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.

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.

dadwrestle is recommended by Solidman
So, this has probably been the easiest most straightforward meet I’ve had. Arranged, agreed and arrived on time (I didn’t but he was kind enough to get the room set up for my slightly delayed arrival).
We chatted and within second were at each other’s throats in the ring. Big, strong and sturdy. Has good experience and good stamina.
We realised soon enough that I was at a much higher aggressive level than his and I was more than happy to tone it down (I hope i toned it down enough).
He fought back and got on top of me quite a few times. I have genuinely enjoyed fighting this man and would recommend anyone to take him on. Once the fight was over we chatted and talked and it was as interesting as the fight.
Thank you for a genuinely good fight and hope we fight again.
Solidman is recommended by dadwrestle
There is a grave danger of running out of superlatives in writing this recommendation! Yes, straightforward and easy to fix a date and time to meet. Good pre-match banter! But nothing can prepare you for the match experience itself! This is one hot, hard, skilled fighter! Don't be distracted by his look in gear....a man born to wear speedos! You will need everything for the fight itself! He brings to the mats speed, skill, a sane but truly rough aggression, with an intensity that is a blast to face! I think I would liken his punches to a rivet gun lol! It must be stressed though that this is all controlled! He knows exactly what he is doing. I was TOTALLY outclassed, but had an awesome evening ! I think I can claim I got him slightly worried twice....but that's all! Off the mats, here is a person who is interested and interesting and a delight to chat to. So, all in all, I rate this man as one of the finest wrestlers I have ever encountered! 5 STAR PLATINUM RECOMMENDATION!

What a nice guy!! Honestly I’m probably one of the most nervous people on here, but I can genuinely say Dadwrestle was really great and genuine! He made me feel at ease with a nice chat before the match and again after.
Now I’m almost pretty SURE he toned it down for me haha, but it was obvious that Dadwrestle is a really strong, skilled and competent wrestler, and was great at teaching me a few things!
So I would definitely recommend Dadwrestle for fighters of any ability, he is great at adapting and making you feel safe, even despite his DIRTY moves ;) which of course I loved haha.

A second last minute arrangement in a field of cancellations which turned out to be really good! This slim wrestler is a rookie, but don't be fooled. He is strong and tenacious. He has a great defensive style and learns VERY quickly. To my surprise, he tried a move on me gaining a tap a few minutes after I had taught it to him. Talk about embarrassed! I shall be back before too long to wreak my revenge! Simple to make arrangements; fun and intelligent off the mats (an added bonus!) So it's a 100% Gold Star recommendation!

So glad I finally got to meet and wrestle with Dadwrestler. I could tell immediately that he knows what he's doing. Excellent technique and very strong. Even though he's much more experienced I never felt out of my depth. He knows exactly when to turn it up and when to give you a little bit of space and time to recover. It was a perfect match and can't wait to get back on the mat for Round 2!

Got my hands on this pocket tank of a wrestler at the Barnet room! Easy to make arrangements, prompt, safe and sane. That's the boring bit over!! WOW is this one hot guy to face on the mats. Strong, tough, sanely aggressive, he delivers in every way an opponent could want. He may be a rookie, but he learns fast!! Two and a half hours of non stop wrestling. Who could ask for more?

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!

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.

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!

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!

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

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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...

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!

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.

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 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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 and I had an appointment, he came to the hotel, I'm the first time in GB, it's kloppfte .... there Stand Dadwrestler ... really British, with suit and umbrella ... That was the first thing Dadwrestler said, we finished and went to the subway, across London to High Barnet. 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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Dadwrestle and I have conversed and tried for a few years to make our schedules work to meet. We have both longed for a multiple sub match and we got Three days together finally on holiday at the same time.
Strong, skilled, and a bit "sneaky". Always respectful of limits and incredibly intelligent, conversationalist off the mat.
I hope to make it across the pond for a rematch some time in the future, but for now savor the three days of multiple matches with him until we can get together again.

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.
MEGRAPPLE is recommended by dadwrestle
As ever, this ace wrestler delivers a tough, fun match up! Long, hot, tough session with subs on both sides. Watch out for his headlock! Off mats, a great laugh and good company! Roll on the next time!!!
I had forgotten just how much fun this wrestler is on the mats! After a good few years just missing each other, we had a good two hour subs match at Barnet. I am delighted to say there were equal subs on both sides! Strong, tough and sanely aggressive this is one classy wrestler!
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. He delivered a good even wrestle to multiple submission. The next meet cannot come soon enough! Don't miss the chance of taking this guy to the mats!

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.

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.
AndrewW is recommended by dadwrestle
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!

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!

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 😉

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.

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!

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!

After quite some time chatting, on the spur of the moment we fixed a meet! This big lad is exactly what he says he is in his profile! PLUS he is safe, fun, tough and a perfect host. 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!
sjs333 is recommended by dadwrestle
After a long break, had the real pleasure of hitting the mats again with this amazing wrestler. He still looks awesome, with a thick muscled body. On the mats he is safe, sane but as tough as you could want! His defense and attack skills are some of the best I have ever faced. This guy is a delight to wrestle! Off the mats he's the proverbial "gentle giant"! Who could ask for more? This wrestler is one of the top stars of the UK wrestling scene!!!
Now guys, here is a wrestler you shouldn't miss! Strong, skilled, great physique!

Paul and I have met some number of times over the years and have always had a great time, making each other work damned hard and loving every minute of it. Away from the mats an equally good guy, great company, great host and gentleman. Next battle overdue but can't wait

Damn, its good to see this star of the the heavyweights getting back on the mats!! Had the privilege of wrestling him in his mat room on Easter Monday. He's the most amazing host, with a fund of great stories. On the mats, beware, he's tough, strong as an ox and ready to wrestle! We go back a long way as opponents, and its great to know there are battles ahead! 100% GOLD STAR recommendation!
This guy is everything the label says! Reliable, friendly on and off the mats, and excellent wrestle! Looking forward to locking up again in the Rochdale ring!

Whitby wrestler is recommended by dadwrestle
What a nice guy and a great host! We managed to fix a meet when I was (vaguely!) in his part of the world. Yes, he's a rookie, but fast gaining experience and confidence. He has strength on his side too....he works out regularly. He has a mean full-nelson, be warned. We agreed on a rematch as soon as geography allows. This is a genuine, keen, enthusiastic wrestler!
dadwrestle is recommended by Edinchattanooga
After talking about a match for many years, I was in the UK an had the Honor of meeting Dadwrestle face to face singlet to singlet ! A wonderful Gentleman and Host, he gave me one Hell of a good sweaty submission Wrestle ! I am sure he will give you one as well !

Despite trouble with his arm, this GREAT USA wrestler took me on in a visit to London. As ever, am amazing experience!! By the way, he can deliver a tough gut punch, so beware! He's got skill, style and huge enthusiasm which makes any meet a 100% fun event!
Was the greatest of pleasures to host this star of the mats on MY mats in London few years back! He was a best of opponents; tough, strong, imaginative! Huge fund of great stories, I only wish there wasn't the Pond between us. Roll on another visit to UK! 100% Gold Star recommendation.
dadwrestle is recommended by bearhugchris
I had an excellent bout with dadwrestle at my place at short notice. He arrived on time and was very friendly. Although we were different weights, the bout was very satisfactory and long and sweaty, which is what I like. I well recommend you meet up if you are in London as he has a mat room of his own.
bearhugchris is recommended by dadwrestle
Was in South West again so couldnt resist locking up with this muscle guy again! He NEVER disappoints on the mats. Excellent host too. Not to be missed!
The rematch! I reckon this muscle guy is harder that ever! Iron arm muscles make him hard to tap! Amazing host; very generous with time and space. Excellent mats for wrestling too. Time on the mats with this wrestler is always FUN!
This was a last minute arrangement! Despite the weight difference we had a great bout. This wrestler has a superb physique, is strong and has excellent stamina! We raised a good sweat, and traded some good submissions. This guy comes with the highest recommendations, as a host and as an opponent! Don't miss the chance of sampling his mats if you are in the South West! 100% real thing!!
dorsetgrappler is recommended by dadwrestle
Had the great pleasure of locking up with dorsetgrappler today. He getting back into the wrestling world after a break, but don't underestimate him. Hes strong and remembers his moves. He's totally safe and sane. He was a bit late because of traffic but let me know at once. I look forward to hitting the mats with him again soon. Definitely a warm, enthusiastic recommendation!! Don't miss out on taking this wrestler on!

looking forward to our next match.
toplad is recommended by dadwrestle
Last minute match, but what a great experience! It was easy to set up this meet, and toplad is safe, sane, and fun to wrestle. We decided on an oil match because of the difference in weight. He's as tough as he looks in his photos. Great arms, so watch out! There's power there. We are most definitely set for a rematch soon. 100% Recommended!

After a long gap, I hooked up again with this well known wrestler when I was visiting Newcastle! He was in fine form, much stronger than I remembered. He had some crafty moves up his sleeve, so I had to work hard. Safe, sane and keen! I have no hesitation is recommending this man of the mats! Meet him....you will have fun!
dadwrestle is recommended by MMAniac
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. Dadwrestle is a big and strong fella and should never be underestimated; I have no doubts that he was able to squash many of his past opponents. For me this was a very fun meet and that's all that matters!
MMAniac is recommended by dadwrestle
Mnnnn....well sometimes you just have to admit it! I was COMPLETELY outclassed by this amazing wrestler! He is totally safe, sane and easy to make arrangements with. 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?!) So all in all, this is one ACE stud fighter. 100% GOLD STAR RECOMMENDATION! If he challenges you, accept. You wont be disappointed!
the duke is recommended by dadwrestle
After a few years of not managing a meet, I met up today with this beefy heavyweight Brit Pro wrestler in the Walthamstow Ring! He made all the arrangements and despite fog and traffic we both arrived on time. We had two solid hours give 'n take old style Brit Pro. This isn't my usual fight style, but it was a blast! Safe and sane, but great to use a ring. We plan Round 2 soon. This guy knows his way around the WofS wrestling world. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! If he challenges you...ACCEPT!

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.
Bear Combat Warrior is recommended by dadwrestle
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!
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!

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.

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 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!!!
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.

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!

"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.

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.
A gentle giant out the ring but tough nut to crack in it - if you get the opportunity give him a try you won't regret it.

Now here's a former opponent I am DELIGHTED to see back on the scene! We met in former days "up north"! Safe, sane, reliable...huge imagination in the ring! Looks great in his pro gear!

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. We mixed in a few gut punches too, which was good. I cannot recommend this wrestler too highly! Safe, sane, fun, imaginative, tough with great staying power. Don't miss the opportunity of facing this wrestler on the mats!!

This is a 100% recommendation...don'y miss your chance to wrestle. Off the mats he has a great sense of humour!

This is one of the stars of the wrestling scene I reckon! 100% gold star recommendation!

A much delayed but much anticipated encounter with this legend. He's a big man with formidable strength. Loved every minute of our match. He's a great guy who loves his wrestling and puts u at ease from the get go. Hope we get to roll again soon big man!
Celticmuscle is recommended by dadwrestle
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!!! This is one awesome wrestler; height, weight, skill, physique! Add to that a REAL sense of fun and even though I was reduced to a crumpled heap on the mats, I came out smiling! If you get the chance, wrestle this man! You wont be disappointed at all! He's one of the best! 100% recommendation!

There is very little to add to the paeans of praise for this grappler! All the words are applicable; safe, sane, tough, skilled! Yes, I was totally outclassed on the mats, but it was a real pleasure taking on this wrestling legend! Thank you! Obviously, a 100% gold star recommendation!

Now here is a guy who needs to change his profile name!! We met at a meet at Pippa's. Despite the weight difference we had two long sessions on the mats. He's fast, feisty, strong and determined! He was a real pleasure to wrestle, relentless in his defense and attack. Skilled and keen, this is one exceptional lightweight! Roll on the next time! 100% RECOMMENDED!
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.
Mainewrsl is recommended by dadwrestle
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!

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!!

Fantastic afternoon match on Dad's mats. Sweaty struggle and squash match. Chest to chest and belly to belly domination. Total gentleman and quite engaging, even when trash talking! Would love to take him on again.

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!
fghtr is recommended by dadwrestle
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 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.

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.
fatpack66 is recommended by dadwrestle
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!

I certainly came up against one of the best when I stepped on to my mats with this wrestler!!

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!

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 meet up was a long time in planning, but on the day all the arrangements worked perfectly. And it was most certainly well worth the wait! This is one ACE wrestler! Fast, strong and skilled, with a muscled body to go with it. It was a delight wrestling him, I must say. Don't be fooled by the slim frame....hes dynamite on the mats.

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.

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!

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.

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'

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!

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 !

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!!

This guy is a good hard wrestler, nice guy off the mats and mean tough guy on them, really enjoyed our meets and would take any opportunity to meet him again, well worth the experience

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!

I was a bit apprehensive due to the size difference. But I needn't have worried. Paul is a fun wrestle, and knows how to pace it at your level. A formidable opponent, and a great guy too.
dadwrestle is recommended by Sportsfanatic
I always enjoy wrestling Paul as he is strong and determined and good fun off the mat. Great at group meets as he makes sure everyone gets on the mat and has a good time. See you soon.

For Jobbers looking for a WOS style heel this is your man. Safe sane and reliable.

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
Mark uk is recommended by dadwrestle
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.

Met dadwrestle yesterday after what seemed to be forever chatting, and I am glad to say the trip over was well worth it, he is an awesome guy, who certainly knew his stuff. He is totally safe and sane and respects limits. As dadwrestle has already mentioned is was a sweat soaked afternoon and I was totally puffed out, but it was a totally great experience and I cannot recommend him highly enough! Lookingt forward to our next match!

dadwrestle is recommended by GrappleFun
A great guy off the mats, and a demon on them!! Safe and sane and nice and competitive - and he knows his stuff! A strong guy who looks good in trunks - I did manage to get a couple of subs though...!! A perfect host too. I look forward to the next time...!!

Had a great session with this guy today! Handsome man, looks good in his gear.Strong, reliable, safe n sane! We realised we had met a few years back. He is fun on and off the mats. Don't miss your chance to meet him. You won't be disappointed.
dadwrestle is recommended by small gladiator
I have wrestled with dadwrestle a number of times and all of them have been good fun with technical skills and ability used rather than his sheer size. He respects limits and adapts so that even small guys like can have good have fun without the risk of injury. I look forward to another session with him soon.
dadwrestle is recommended by Ruffbear7
Outstanding wrestler, solid, strong, easy going. We just went right to it and had a blast. Matches like this are why I keep coming back for more.
dadwrestle is recommended by Rassle4Fun
After years of chatting, since Paul comes from the other side of The Pond, we finally met at Wrestlefest NYC and had a blast wrestling a hot slow pace submission match. Paul is worth the effort to meet him as he is a great man to have FUN. Yes I will be looking forward to the REMATCH!
dadwrestle is recommended by robroyscotland
Met this lovely big guy a few years back - a total mismatch but it worked well - my 'tuff and determined little guy with a chip on his shoulder' attitude seemed to do the trick. Our joint-enthusiasm for wrestling and aggression made it a hot meet! Looking forward to a rematch!
dadwrestle is recommended by tricky
Great to be able to wrestle these guys at a Grapevine meet. Dadwrestle was always going to be a tough opponent, but he gave me a good workout. Friendly and safe, and would feel comfortable in another match.

Had been chatting for a long time about a meet, and at last we have made it! Good heel v jobber tussle!! Watch out for his strong legs, guys! We got up a good sweat, and this definitely was Round 1 of many more! Totally reliable time wise, good company on and off the mats.
dadwrestle is recommended by readyforit
dadwrestler was all I had hoped for and more. An excellent, tough heel, yet versatile, imaginative and attuned to his opponent's strength, size and wrestling skills. A rematch in the new year is a given.
readyforit is recommended by dadwrestle
After some nervousness on his part about weight difference, I met this great guy to wrestle. He is fast and strong, good fun on the mats. He is reliable safe and sane. By no means a rookie or a jobber!! Excellent company off the mats too. Intelligent, bright and personable. I hope we will fight again soon! Highly recommended!

During a recent holiday, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Dadwrestle in London. This man is tops. He has a great mat space, is very hospitable, and is a great wrestler with remarkable strength to boot. Seek him out if you are travelling to London, you won't be disappointed.

yelp31 is recommended by dadwrestle
Now this might have been a catchweight competitive wrestle, but it proved one of the best grapples I have ever had!! Here's a completely reliable guy, who turns up on time. He's VERY skilled on mats, as fast as lightning, and a first class opponent. hes strong, with good stamina, and is fun on and off the mats. Don't be fooled by his size...this is one awesome wrestler! I look forwrd to many more sessions on the mats!
dadwrestle is recommended by Pitbull
Met paul on two previous occasions when i was just a rookie he took me down a peg or two with his strength and skill both very enjoyable matches. Fast forward 2 years to aug 2012 for a rematch at barnet and had a battle and half. Hard intense wrestle with plenty of subs on both sides paul is a gentleman skilled and strong .great fella on and off the mats
Pitbull is recommended by dadwrestle
Here's a tough star to take on! Safe, sane, eager to wrestle. He has great stamina, and don't underestimate him....rookie he may be , but the Pitbull is learning fast!! REMATCH August 2012! WOW the tiger has emerged! Great wrestling session, tough and intense. Good submissions on both sides. A perfect bout!
dadwrestle is recommended by Perseus
Well if u thought this guy was too old or big - forget it lol
He's strong experienced knows his holds and is a very decent challenge. Hard aggressive, fun and always safe. Will I wrestle him again? U bet and u should too. Great banter too
Perseus is recommended by dadwrestle
The rematch has happened! This guy is greatly improved skill wise and is now one of the toughest guys around I reckon. Have to admit, I got well and truly beaten!!
Now here's a wrestler with a great build, strong, skilled and a challenging opponent! Had heard lots about him before we met, and he lived up to and surpassed all expectations. Thoroughly reliable, fun on and off mats, safe and sane, but a tough, determined wrestler. One of the best fights I've had for a long time!! Roll on the rematch!

Wrestled against Paul today and had a hot sweaty bout. Strong and technical, he inflicted pain on me (safe and sane of course). He was reliable and genuine and needless to add, great sense of humour. I totally recommend him. Great match!

I wrestled this guy last weekend, and what a great fight we had. He is strong, trim, and determined! He has great stamina, and keeps on coming back. Great fun on and off the mats, totally reliable, safe and sane. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Roll on the rematch!
dadwrestle is recommended by borets
I've had the pleasure of wrestling him many times. Safe sane considerate funny reliable. Oh did I say he's a good grappler ? Knows what he's doing and will push you as hard as you want / need. Ok, sometimes a little harder. A gent off the mats, a fighter on them. Nuff said.
dadwrestle is recommended by Physical
A really great guy to meet up with and DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE this guy on the mats. He's safe, sane and a very good technical submission wrestler - happy to lock up with Paul again anytime!

I have known and wrestled Paul for many years and he's a good wrestler and excellent company.

I never miss a chance of stepping on to the mats with Ed! He's safe, sane and thoroughly reliable. He's a skilled wrestler, strong and tough. I always come away from a bout having learned something, but also knowing I've had a great time! Don't miss the chance of taking him on.
dadwrestle is recommended by croppedinely
Paul is a gentleman, and it was nice to have a competitive bout with a bigger man. Strong and tenacious on the mat with bags of endurance, he will give you a good workout! He is warm and charming off the mat too - looking forwards to the next round.

I met Stew today, after reading his other recommendations! He outshone them all! Reliable, safe and sane. Very skilled, strong wrestler, willing to share his expertise on mats. Off the mats, a fun guy with interesting conversation. I look forward to our next match up, even if I get thoroughly beaten again!
dadwrestle is recommended by Lincoln Lad
Had a GREAT scrap with Paul recently! He's tough, strong, physical and sane on the mats and a true gent off them. He's a really nice fella, who can wrestle as rough as you want! He's a sly dog, too, with loads of mean tricks - never turn your back on him for a second! Totally recommended - drop him a challenge - you won't regret it!
Lincoln Lad is recommended by dadwrestle
Well, if you want to meet the best, don't turn down a challenge from "The Lad"! We wrestled for a good long time. He delivers a tough, intense submission fight, whilst being perfectly safe and sane. Made me work damn hard, too. Perfect host, and a gent off the mats (if occasionally not a gent on mats!!) Roll on the rematch!!
