extralarge is recommended by rioman61


Massive , powerful, determined is what this greek warrior is, Had a great match with him and believe me he is XL! ;) We barely fit on the mattress, space was an issue but we were sweating after 5 min of intense brawl, huge guy, he didn t bother about escaping my guard, he would just lay on top and dealing with his size was difficult (though pleasurable lol) Dealing with his chokes and powerful holds on the mattress almos doubled his weight, so intense sweat and hard fight it was. Will love to meet again on proper mats and be able to toss that Greek god around ! Super nice, and great personality with an interesting perspective on life. Def recommend !

rioman61 is recommended by extralarge


Rioman is an exceptional wrestler! Very strong, skilled and technical and with a remarkable stamina! He has been training in bjj for many years and that’s very obvious!
We had a very intense fight, but unfortunately the space was very limited. So, he was not able to apply his finishing holds on me.
On the contrary, I found a way to apply some of my tight finishing holds on him. He was surprised and told me that nobody had put him in these holds, before! I consider this a great compliment!
He also promised me that we will wrestle again in the future, but next time it will be on a proper mat floor!
After our fight, I had to go home, but this was not easy at all! Rioman is a very pleasant and cultivated person and our conversation was so enjoyable, that I really couldn’t leave, and I stayed and chatted with him for long.
If you have the chance, meet him! Totally recommended!

extralarge is recommended by Greekboy


Ο extralarge είναι η μεγαλύτερη τύχη που μπορεί να συναντήσει ένας αρχάριος παλαιστής. Έμπειρος, έξυπνος και δυναμικός, μπορεί να καθοδηγήσει τον αντίπαλο εκεί που θέλει προκειμένου να πάρει την υποταγή. Είναι πολύ καλός γνώστης του αντικειμένου και πολύ πρόθυμος να βοηθήσει έναν λιγότερο έμπειρο παλαιστή. Επιπλέον είναι ένας άνθρωπος έξυπνος, αξιόλογος, με σεβασμό και αξιοπρέπεια. Ήταν χαρά μου να τον γνωρίσω και να μπορέσω να παλέψω μαζί του.

His very solid and strong body allows him to absorb his opponent’s pressure. His genuine fight spirit allows him to set his attacks and go for the submission, with confidence!
He needs to improve his technique in order to complete his submissions with successs. But he still is able to surprise his opponent with his passion for wrestling!
He can also take a lot of punishment with great persistence and superb dignity!
Greekboy is an exceptional beginner! He is a great opponent!
In addition, he is a very smart and cultivated person.

Σε ευχαριστώ πολύ για τα καλά λόγια. Εγώ θα είμαι πιο λακωνικός...
Ένας εκπληκτικός παλαιστής με φοβερή τεχνική και ασφάλεια. Ικανός να προσαρμοστεί και σε αρχαρίους και σε προχωρημένους, σε χαλαρή και έντονη πάλη. Κατάφερα να τον παραιτήσω... και μία φορά! :p Έχει πολλές τεχνικές στο μανίκι του (και στα πόδια του, επίσης...) και δεν θα βαρεθείτε καθόλου! Όντας αρχάριος, έμαθα πολλά πράγματα από αυτόν. Πάνω απ'όλα, είναι ένας ευγενικός και καλλιεργημένος άνθρωπος με τον οποίο μπορεί ο οποιοσδήποτε να μιλήσει και με την φιλοξενία του να σε κάνει να αισθάνεσαι άνετα. Τον προτείνω ασυζητητί. Extralarge, αυτήν την φορά δεν τα κατάφερα, αλλά, επειδή ξέρω ότι θα ξαναπαλέψουμε... την επόμενη φορά να προσέχεις τα πόδια μου! ;)

AsPalepsoume is recommended by extralarge


AsPalepsoume is a young opponent who is strong, stocky and determined!
It’s obvious he spent many years hitting the gym and he’s got paid off very well! His is impressively built with broad shoulders, rock hard arms and huge legs and a very good stamina.
He can absorb tons of pressure and punishment before submitting!
I locked him twice in a very tight triangle and both times, due to his superb upper body strength, he managed to resist for more than twenty seconds, before tapping out! The same happened when I applied my chokes and joint locks on him. He tried very hard to break the holds and he only tapped out, when he was about to faint!
He is also capable to set some good attacks. So, he gave me a serious competition when he attempted to sweep me and put me in his own triangles, chokes and scissors holds. He couldn’t complete these submissions, but he sure tried!
He is a very quick learner. He studied the submission holds I applied on him and instantly tried to use them against me!
He only needs a little more practice in order to improve his technique and he will be unbeatable!
He is also a very polite and cultivated person, very smart, very pleasant and a force of nature, at the same time!
Totally recommended!

gianniotis is recommended by extralarge


Gianniotis must be one of the strongest men in Greece!
Huge arms and shoulders, powerful chest and back and iron legs.
All this strength and power allows him to resist effectively to his οpponent’s attacks and makes very difficult for them to make him tap. Even when he is in a submission move, he keeps struggling, trying to break it and he refuses to give up. He only surrenders when he is completely exhausted (and his opponent, too!)
Overall, he is a very powerful, very polite and very cultivated person. He is a must-wrestle, if you have the chance to meet him! Totally recommended!

extralarge is recommended by Zürich


His arsenal of locks and chokes is endless. Out of every position he will be able to apply around 10 different submission moves with ease, calm and a unique preciseness. I was deeply impressed by his skill level. I think he is probably the most technical fighter I met on this site. On top of that he is a giant. The combination makes him unbeatable.
But he was kind enough to adjust to my level for the first hour, so that I had the feeling I could almost make him tap and felt like we’re similarly strong. I knew in the second hour, that this was a pure illusion.
I left with tons of advice, that surely will help me in my future matches (and already did) and maybe a bit of humbleness, knowing that there is still a very long way to go, to master this beautiful sport on the same level like him.
A man that is worth meeting. In so many aspects. Don’t hesitate to challenge him. You will surely like it.

Zürich is recommended by extralarge


Zurich is a well built and stocky wrestler, with a remarkable strength and stamina. He likes wrestling very much and he has developed a decent technique level.
We rolled for more than two hours. During the first hour, he tried very hard to pass me and submit me, in every possible way. He swept me two or three times and he felt like the submission was close.
During the second hour, I blocked all his sweep attempts and all his resistance and I turned his attacks to quick submissions. He kept coming back for more and I kept finishing him (in a gentle and safe way) trying to show him that there is more than one defense for every attack.
It was a pleasure to roll with an opponent in the same size with me and equally strong.
He is also a very nice guy, polite and cultivated and the chat with him was a pleasure too.
If he improves his technique a bit, it will be very difficult for anyone to confront him.
We really had a very nice time, and I will be very happy to wrestle him again, in the future.

Met extralarge on the evening of Sunday 14th April 2019, at the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens club lounge, and gathered straight away how engaging he was.

Went back to the suite with Zepheshow. extralarge smarted pointed out that we could submission wrestle on the softer-than-usual carpet!

Man, he must be related to Atlas / Hercules. This man is very very strong, and very very skilled. I repeatedly attempted and repatedly failed to tap him. He is a great coach and showered me with important tweaks to better my game. He also has a fun side which he did some lift and carry to finish off with.

Yes, he is a big strong guy, although he is very sane and I felt completely safe at all times. Yes, he is hygienic. Yes he is highly recommended by me. See you next time at your club!

ImtiazAli is a great wrestler! Tall, slim, solid and powerful! Very skillful and extremely strong for his size. His jiu jitsu background allows him to fight like a tiger! Completely fearless, he goes against a larger opponent with total self-confidence. He attacked me with every possible way and he made me fight hard to brake his holds and put him in position. His defense against my submissions was really impressive! He didn't tap until last second, when he had already tried any possible escape.
Out the mats, he is a very pleasant, educated and polite man and it was a pleasure to chat with him. He was a perfect host. Thanks a lot, pal.
I would like to meet and fight you, again, soon.

Although he prefers pro style, we wrestled submission!
I realised how difficult it was to tap him, due to his powerful resistance and his impressive strength! He also likes to be lifted and carried, which was very fan, also.

extralarge is recommended by Zack


Extralarge is an excellent wrestler. He really knows what to do in a wrestling match and can adjust his play to a smaller and less experienced wrestler, like me. He is very strong and skilled and he has a remarkable stamina! We wrestled for over two hours and he didn’t even need a break to catch his breath!
He put me in a wide variation of holds, that I didn’t even know they exist! He submitted me numerous times, but always in a very safe way! Εvery time, he kept asking me if I was all right or the hold was too tight. So, I never felt I was in a dangerous situation, even when he applied on me his stronger holds! On the contrary: I really enjoyed being dominated in such a safe way!
He is also a very good teacher. He showed me an effective hold to apply on bigger guys like himself, and tap them out, which I will use in the future!
Many times, he let me start the fight from a privilege position and apply finishing holds on him, while he would try to escape. No need to say that he was always able to break my holds, reverse the situation and put me in a submission position.
He also gave me one more strong experience: He lifted and carried me twice, both in a fireman’s carry and in a torture rack, always being very concerned and carrying about me being safe!
Extralarge is a very serious, polite and well-educated person, really nice and friendly!
It was a pleasure to meet and wrestle him and I hope we will have the chance to repeat it, very soon!
If you are in Greece, you really have to meet him! He is a must – wrestle!

Zack is recommended by extralarge


Zack is a young and very enthousiast wrestler, very strong and solid for his size. He likes to challenge bigger opponnents and test his strength and skills against them. This makes him a superb jobber. He is determined and insisting. He tries to find a way out of every hold and works very hard to break it. So, he doesn't give up easily at all. He can absorb a lot of punishment and still continue to smile. He is also a very quick learner. I teached him a few holds and he was instantly able to use them on me, very effectively!
If he continues going yo the gym and improves a little his wrestling skills, he will be, very soon, invincible for wrestlers of his size.
Outside the mats, he is a very polite and civilized person and we had a very pleasant, but also serious conversation.
In general, we really had a nice time!
So, if you ever find a challenge from him in your inbox,
just accept it. It's worth it!

Tassos is a smart wrestler. He is a light weight who has the confidence to wrestle bigger guys like me. His quick reflections allowed him to avoid many submission holds and last a lot longer than he was expected. He is also a very nice and reliable person. Very highly recommended for lightweights!

08.03.2014 - Class, right aggressivity and power are the hallmarks of EXTRALARGE. You can not miss him if you go to Athens. To meet him you will be well prepared. I really enjoyed our meeting and because we fight to win and at the end we were really sweaty like warriors after an hard match ...no one of us wanna be a loser

Aton2001 is a very strong and technical wrestler.
His power is very difficult to control and his bjj experience makes him an excellent opponent.
Methodical and technical, tries to surprise his opponent by using unexpected moves and he doesn't give up easily, even if he is well traped in a devastating hold!
It was a great pleasure to meet and wrestle him.
In addition, he is a very nice and polite person off the mats!

extralarge is recommended by makant157


Extralarge is a very strong wrestler, quite skilled and with impressive stamina.
He knows well how to add pressure using his body weight, and many ways to immobilize his opponent or make him submit.
However, he always respects safety and his opponent's limits.
We had a very nice, about 2 hours long session with almost no breaks.
Off the mats, he is a very cultivated and educated person, and a very gentle and polite host.
He also has a very professional wrestling room.
Totally recommended from my side.

Makant is an excellent man and wrestler!
On the mats, he is a fit, strong and resistant opponent!
He can absorbe a lot of pressure. His body strength permits him to be in some really devastating holds for a long time, without giving up! His durability makes him a perfect opponent for a long wrestling session! We had an amazing two hour match, without any breaks, and I think we enjoyed it both, very much.
After that, we also had some coffee and a very interesting conversation! I discovered that off the mats, he is a polite, reliable and consequent person!
I'm glad I met this guy and I definitely recommended him!

extralarge is recommended by musclechris80


This guy is really large. If he got you in a headlock is ulikely to escape. He knows how to use his weight against his opponent, but his weak point is his stamina. After every round we had a long time out to catch his breath. We had a very strong match in his wrestle room which I can ensure that is one of the best you can find in Athens. Thanks for the nice match!

musclechris80 is recommended by extralarge


Musclechris is an excellent opponent. Very strong and very technical, he managed to neutralise our weight difference. I won the first few rounds, but due to his great stamina (he never gets tired) he settled the score to a draw! We had a very strong and very spectacular match, that I really enjoyed. Out of the mats, he is very polite and reliable and his body condition is an example for any other person at his age! After our match, I'm inspired to work harder in the gym and improve my nutrition. Thanks for the match, Chris! I'm looking forward for the next one...

konnos85 is recommended by extralarge


Konnos is a very solid guy. He is naturally strong and it is very hard to make him submit. His body weight is an extra advantage for him. But, he is not very experienced, yet. So, he finally submitted to my holds, this time. But I'm sure things will be harder for me, in our next match. We had a very good work out and a very nice time. He is a very polite and reliable person and he respects limits. A very good opponent!

extralarge is recommended by marsupi


I met Extralarge while I was staying in Athens and we managed to find some time for a long, intense wrestling session that I enjoyed very much. He is a strong, seasoned wrestler who knows many holds, including very efficient ones to block your throat and your chin. Yet, he is also a very safe and sane player, who's caring about his opponent and willing to share his skills. I have learned a lot from him. Outside of the mat, he is a true gentleman and if we had not been running out of time, I would have appreciated benefiting from his insider view on Athens.

Marsupi is a great opponent and a great person. He's got strength and stamina and he is able to absorb the pressure of holds for a long time before giving up. Actually he hates to give up and he really tries to avoid it as much as he can. We had a great work out, for about one hour and a half, and we really had a great time. He needs to improve his technique and he will be a very dangerous opponent. Outside the mats, he's a very polite and educated person and it was a pleasure for me to meet him. I hope next time we wrestle, he is going to be even better!

ExtraLarge was one of the nicest surprises during my visit in Athens. He is a strong wrestler, with good moves and very powerful upper boddy and legs.
We tried a variety of holds, and he certainly managed to submit me in many of them.
in addition, he is a great guy, very polite , a person you could talk with even after the match. I will be happy to meet him again in the future.

An excellent person and an excellent opponent.
Jon is polite, reliable and a very strong and technical wrestler. He's not big but his power is impressive! He is smart and quick on the mats. It' s very hard to submit him, because he doesn't give up easilly. He 's so good, he even submitted me twice, using smart jointlocks and neutralising my weight advantage. He gave me an excellent fight! So, I highly recommended him to anyone, bigger or smaller. Jon is one of the best opponents someone can find!
