This dude is really strong, and can constrict you in many different ways! Always a challenge to get out from his holds! Overall we had a great and fun match, look forward for round 2!

This is one of the nicest studs on the site. Always very friendly, considerate and a super fun meet every time. So glad I’ve had the chance to meet him so many times given our distance. His pictures don’t lie, he’s clearly built like a tank and manages to make quick work out of me, though I’m happy to pretend that’s out of sheer politeness on my part. Will always make the time if he’s in town and definitely suggest anyone else do too.

Nothing but a fun, absolute stud muffin you have to wrestle .
Guy's got a GREAT build and can stand his ground .. pretty sure he conserves his strength with me out of politeness .
Have had more than one match with this stud and it's Always been unforgettable to rumble with the sexy beast!

I had missed GD his past visit to AZ but he assured me he'd let me know when he was coming back. As promised I got a message from him a few weeks ago. True to his word he was enthusiastic to meet up. I happened to be hanging with another wrestling buddy when GD called that he had arrived in town and we were happy to go pick him up so we could play on my mats. My local buddy ,AZgrappler ,gave me the honor of rolling with GD first (Im sure after seeing GD he was hopeful that i could soften him up) GD is one powerful wrestler, chatty and smiling throughout the match. Well muscled, thick and stocky and knows how to use it. GD ended up crashing at my place and we had another playful go at the next morning. Deff looking forward to his next trip to AZ and of course hes welcome to stay at my place anytime.

Not sure how I neglected writing a recommendation for this big beefy fighter.
We have met a few times over the years, he is always fun, charming and very entertaining on and off the mats.
He has a good solid build and knows how to use it, be prepared for a fair bit of cheek while you are punishing him too.
Recommended for a good strong fun match.
growin dude is recommended by Alan2005sg
Finally we met again. This time we both have each other a good fight. He is even much bigger. Built like a tank, I struggled very hard not to get into his submission but still can't escape few.
Finally we met. A very tough guy, put me into racking and I submitted. Strong and built upper body which took me submitted to his bearbug hold several times. Don't be deceived by his charming look, as he is a silent killer. Nice guy outside the mat. Looking forward to a rematch again.

Finally after so many years chatting with each other I had the privilege to wrestle GD in a short stay in Singapore . As his name says here he is a growing dude as he’s much bigger in person than his pictures. We had a very strong wrestling match that was very competitive , full of many slams and chokes . Outside of the mats he’s gentle, smart and was kind enough to show me some of the amazing Singapore . Fully recommended and can’t wait to wrestle him again !
brazilwrestler86 is recommended by growin dude
Built like a TANK! :) Looking forward to give him a scoop slam some day - if we pro's in the books :)
Fun on the mats and more than I can brute work my way outta :) Yet respectful and full control of this strength for me the smaller guy! :)
growin dude is recommended by polyethylene33
Took too long to write this stud a recommandation but I was quite glad to finally meet him in Singapore. He’s pretty big into pro wrestling but did pretty good defending himself on the mats too. Very strong with amazing legs and big arms, he gives a great match l. Just hope next time to take him down in a ring !
polyethylene33 is recommended by growin dude
Ring or not, this stud was real fun :)
(if you are lucky you get both him AND his partner stud muffin x 2). Both built like the hunks-next-door.
Hope my mat skills will improve one day enough to be a real challenge :) As I look forward to a rematch :)

Fun guy to toss with. He’s big and can take a hit quite well!
growin dude is recommended by Dogfighter5
It was an act of serendipity that I was able to meet and wrestle this young man. I happened to be in Cambridge the day before when our paths crossed. This fascinates me as I knew nothing of him and he Is from the other side of the world . It's a small world! The next day despite feeling under the weather he was on the train to Providence. Again I had no idea what to expect only knowing he was young, big, and strong.his list of previous opponents were all muscle guys and of course he was confident and generous with trash talk. I assumed I was going to be taking one for the team and would be spending the afternoon getting beat up. Had he not been feeling under the weather I am sure that's how it would have gone. I have two dogs a well behaved Boston Terrier and a naughty big Pitbull mix.. Growin dude through himself on the floor and fearlessly called my pit mix to himself and to my surprise she went right over without the usual new person suspicion my Boston did the same. I was sold he passed the test! We went up to my mat room where he attempted to make good on all of his threats. As you can see he has the muscles and knows how to use them! I am very Impressed with this powerful wrestler. Bye the end of the afternoon he had earned my respect and admiration as an athelete and he left my house as a friend. He has my highest recommendation.
Dogfighter5 is recommended by growin dude
Edit : Here's to my understanding of geography :P Never did it hit me that Providence was just next door to Boston :) - I even got so excited on my route back I rode the wrong train - paid a big bill .... but it was worth it .
Dogfighter5 is the compact muscled BJJ stud that you hope gets picked against you in a class even though from a skill set wise you are going to get owned. Kick-ass muscle and pretty-boy low body fat composition, you know it will be a real treat one way or another.
I have to admit that it was a very very fuzzy experience because I was running a bit of a cold - not only was he not afraid of my cold, we went for a few good rolls on the mats. He has a GREAT place and fair to say it fit my ideals of an impromptu match. Simply put, using brute strength gave me no advantage. He was too strong to be man handled and had the agility to keep me from hold to hold. And in my humble (in-experienced) rolling experience - the transitions demonstrated what else he was holding back had I enough skill to match up.
Fast, strong and has a great body , thinks he’s old but acts nothing like it ;)
He knows his arm bars has some nice tight space for his wrestling mat and I had good fun .
Polite cause he knew how to edge me into a tougher fight , but always made sure I wasn’t getting hurt especially in a hold .
Looking forward to a round 2 :) and 3 ..
growin dude is recommended by oliver1985
An absolute beast, but sweet and sincere off the mat. I managed to submit him with head scissors in the midst of a group brawl. Huge muscles.
Update: Still a huge beast on the mat, and a sincere gentleman off of it. Had a fun 1 on 1 rematch on a different continent.
oliver1985 is recommended by growin dude
Had a great time rumbling with him and a few others, overall great host who was fun to man handle but has a competitive streak enough to keep the match going !
Made some nice grunts while being body splashed and I suspect strong enough to give me a deliver some power moves and more . Looking forward to round 2 :)
growin dude is recommended by Matpain
Had a super fun pro match with growin_dude. He is an handsome built powerhouse that was a pleasure to work over in the house of matpain! Did several rounds and worked him him a variety of holds along with some rope work, chop, punches and stomps. He dished some back including a torture rack he got me to submit it but he paid the price for that. Definitely meet up with him if you have the chance!
Matpain is recommended by growin dude
I cannot stress how much I learnt in the ring (A REAL ONE) with this big guy!
Don't let the pretty-boy chivalry fool you, he has enough strength to man handle any bull with ease and still move in the ring like a pro (ask him about them OVW days ) :)
Most importantly, he made the ring good fun (winter cold fun - haha) and safe (like pro level safe).
Had quite a few rounds and even had a free for all with @CRedfield.
If I had to make a list of qualities :
- knows and can execute his pro slams and will take you for a few if you can break fall safely :)
- knows his locks and holds - effortless and I never felt more relaxed to go into holds that were technically complex (in my humble opinion)
- and all the charm in a big-ol boy you need in the ring OR mat(looking forward to try that some time :)
PS : a definite Louisville highlight - if not a must for Kentucky :)

Growin dude said he’d be here in May to deliver some old school wrestling and true to his word...he did both with style! A strong, fun loving dude, growin dude made both our matches one coming, one going...true sweat filled, slam jamborees, filled with lots of pro moves and just plain out fun!
My only regret is that we weren’t able to make round 3 a go...but my two other matches with this outstanding guy, left nothing but dynamite memories longing for yet another bout!
Swenrique is recommended by growin dude
Much bigger in real life! Like his moves, like his strength and personality ! Every match was fun and sweaty and proof that we needed a much much bigger space for good old man handling! Strong, polite and great guy to wrestle !
Looking forward to a gym and post-gym wrestle , should be a GREAT last man standing match ! GRRRR
growin dude is recommended by Galifter84
Growin dude was a fun guy to meet up and wrestle with while he was visiting Savannah. He’s strong, doesn’t give easily and likes his trash talk. Good guy to hang out with off the mats, super generous and friendly. Can easily carry on a good conversation with him as well. Likes his power moves/slams so be ready for those! Recommended!
Galifter84 is recommended by growin dude
Bigger in real life :) Usually comes in gunnz blazing and strong as a bull! Handsome and mixed in with and all round southern charm. Polite and pretty quick on the mats. Has a heavy duty bear hug and good old strong arms. Look forward to a rematch :)

As soon as I saw this dude, i thought to myself : Holy shit, this guy is a tank! That is exactly what he was a tank of solid muscle.I had a blast testing our strength back and forth. Lots of flexing and sweat, just how I like it! Growin dude is a fun guy on and off the mats, wrestle him if you get the chance.....rematch anytime!

I had a great pro style match with Growin Dude. He is very strong, knows a lot of great pro moves, and has a great body. He is also a nice guy. I would like to wrestle him again.
growin dude is recommended by Madj
Beefy, strong, cheeky, nice and friendly guy, we had a good roll around where he expectedly and completely dominated this newbie and threw me around like a ragdoll with his pro moves! Look forward to another match and catch up soon with this great guy :)
Madj is recommended by growin dude
Fun and gives it an all out in the match ! I'm only lucky he hasn't been too busy muscling up, cause the kid will be a speed power tank . Polite kid that I accidentally slammed into a mirror <yep - cause I'm an idiot>, he took it like a man and was all understand that it was an accident.
growin dude is recommended by SmallButMighty
Growin_Dude is a beast!! Bigger than I expected and strong. Knows how to throw his weight around and has no problem throwin yours around for you. Cool dude to chat with, especially about food lol. Had a good pro rumble with slams and trash talk, just like I like em. Definitely hit him up if you're in his neck of the woods or he is in yours.
SmallButMighty is recommended by growin dude
Dudes fantastic with power moves and throws :) Strong as an ox and a powerhouse in making all the pro moves in our match good old fun ! He's a real polite fella and is definitely someone you need to meet on the mats (or crash mats) if you like to take on some power slams or ... givin'em :)
growin dude is recommended by Skrappy
This match almost didn't happen, but glad it did. After a bit of a rough start, with someone catching a good elbow to the face, we had a great pro bout. He's got a powerful build and an impressive arsenal of power moves. We weren't able to try any high flying moves due to hotel furniture setup (a lot of glass and not enough space). Off the mats, he's a gracious host, funny, and fun to chat with.
Boston Stud is recommended by growin dude
He ain't the super heavyweight in the ring , but don't let that fool you in to thinking that it won't be a fun competitive match while he uses his mix of strength and speed to keep try gain as many taps as he can get.
While I was no way lookin to Job, I got school literally by the sheer amount of submitted holds(especially the ones he repeated after you tapped and was hoping to get out . ) Powering out from some of his holds were possible but he learns and churns new moves on the fly.
Dominating is his game and if you pump up the heat, it will bring him back even stronger .
Gentleman on the mats and has a great pair of wheels , easy on the eyes, but are coupled with strength and agility.
Had a great time :)

Great Guy !
Very strong and experienced!!
Had a fantastic time wrestling with him and looking forward to next time !!!
growin dude is recommended by GrappleVA
Growin dude is the kind of guy you start planning the rematch with right after the final pinfall. He is a great combination of strength and tenacity with just the right attitude to keep the match fun. Yes, he is just as big and solid as his pics indicate - I easily spotted the hulk at the gate. You'll quickly realize you're in for a tough bout. However, off the mats, he's an articulate, chill, witty guy to hang out with....or to grab some post-match chicken and rice with.
GrappleVA is recommended by growin dude
The full package, spunky, polite, aggressive (in the "ring") and as highlighted - a good deal strong. Man Handled more than his weight with ease too.
Safe and willing to dish out as much as you can handle. Also knows how to give a good give and take making pro matches fast paced and loads of fun. Don't let'em pretty boy looks disarm ya cause he has an alpha mode that needs to conquer (and be conquered). Mix his humour in and you have hours of serious fun !
Can't wait for a rematch or a tag team match or a triple threat match with the stud anyday :)

Jul and Sept 16. The dude is such a nice guy. Great wrestler and very strong. Thought I had him a few times but he just muscled his way out. Always a pleasure
9 Feb 14. Our forth meeting and just as awesome as always. Tough little powerhouse was slamming and racking me with ease. Always a favourite of mine both on and off the mats. For you US guys, pete will be heading to the east coast ( Boston, NYC and DC ) later this year. If your wise then you will get your request in early. AWESOME guy !!!!

REMATCH woohoo with the big man! Had a great time with Mark, real easy going. His experience makes it fun to do the power moves for pro, but switch it up and he'll show you who's the boss in a submission. Looking forward to our next big rematch!
Good fun on the mat! Very accommodating towards my n00b skills, yet didn't fail to bring on some sheer power to take the match up to the next notch. Definitely going to meet the next round!
Round 2 :
Woohoo ! Pretty sure the big fella was going easy on me! Had a good grapple and loads more fun with pro moves! Even got an opp to Powerslam 200lbs of british BEEF! Though get this straight , this man ain't no jobber!

REMATCH – May 2016
This handsome young stud came to Hawaii and challenged the Champ to a rematch. Still smart and fast, he added strength and skill since our first match. We had a great time together, although the Champ administered the obligatory beatdown! :-) Now he can brag that he is the only stud to get whupped by the Champ in both Brooklyn and Honolulu. To mark the occasion, I really should have bought him a trophy! ;-) Highly recommended: many future matches planned!
FIRST MATCH – March 2014
Growin dude came over my Brooklyn condo earlier today. He is an extremely polite, gracious and highly educated young man. We chatted extensively before walking over to my wrestling room. On the mats, he is very strong, fit and tenacious. He has decent defensive skills, although I was able to take him down easily. Soon the champ began to dominate the young stud, racking off four straight submissions and several arm wrestling victories. It was a complete sweep for the Champ. But the strong young stud could claim two victories: firstly, I could not force him to call me daddy (even in Chinese....baba), and secondly, he was able to save himself from further subs by getting me to laugh repeatedly. Growin dude is an awesome, strong, intelligent grappler, and an even better human being. By all means, take the opportunity to wrestle him, chat with him, and get to know him. He is one of the finest young guys on this site!
MuscChamp is recommended by growin dude
Good Fun, all the competition in an all out muscle match! He does have a weakness and it sure isn't done through laughs :)
Very experienced, very flexible. First timers better step up to to the challenge! Experienced big guys, time to take a shot at some prime time matches with the man!
Awaiting our Rematch!

Great guy and truly about having good old fashion roles to keep the competition fun and see which stud comes out top.
Experienced enough to turn up or down a notch depending on your size and weight, but expect him to go all out if you put up a good offensive :)
Great balance of stamina and strength, might use his chill voice to throw you off that he ain't a beast on the mats !
growin dude is recommended by njmuscguy1
really strong and fun to wrestle ! and off the mat a real nice and friendly guy hope our paths cross again !
growin dude is recommended by grapplingguy
Very strong and muscular guy!
I feel like he has no joints - it was so hard to get him on sub. Once he applies a little bit power to his muscles - it becomes almost impossible to bring sub to tap - you either should be 10 times faster or 10 times stronger.
He says that he is not trained in bjj, but I doubt - he really knows what he is doing :)
Very good match. Would love to have another one with Growin Dude.
growin dude is recommended by raslinjock
Growin dude is a beefy, hot man to wrestle. He's strong, tough and masculine. He's strong enough to rack me (a 200lb-er) with ease and confidence. He's got a great attitude about it all; which makes the experience fun and enjoyable for both. On, and off, the mat he's pleasant and friendly. Definitely meet this guy now, because he's only going to get better, bigger and stronger with age...best to get him now, while you might have a chance.

I have always had a weak spot for international matches, so I was happy to take on this Singaporean light heavyweight wrestler, as he was wreaking havoc around North America. Impressive body paired with impressive power; it took me a while to subdue him and take the fighting spirit out of him. Ready for a rematch whenever you are, bud.
growin dude is recommended by celtwrestle
This dude is muscle packed and likes to punish with bear hugs and can slam a opponent as easily or harsh as he wants. Chirpy, talky character too who is polite on and off the mats even when he's trapped in submission. We had a good brawl despite my tiredness after a flight. More of a muscular mauler than grappler, but great fun and tough all the same.
growin dude is recommended by tapout
Strong arms, strong legs (need to use them!) and familiar with some moves. Just rolled around for some fun - not so hard as in academy. Very social, good conversation partner with the necessary critical look towards what is happening in the world.

Very flexible BJJ bud, who made the match fun with the necessary crank on a surprise move when needed to keep the match exciting. Nice fella all round and as I said before great for a roll if yur a beginner like yours truly. That being said, pretty sure he kept them skills at bay so be sure to try them out if you are more than a novice !

He might come off as arrogant at first. But he is actually nice – especially once you get to beat him. :) He is feisty and has passion. I'm sure he will be quite a force to reckon with once he gets more experience.

Met this very nice guy in Singapore for a wrestle. A very strong, tenacious guy, great attitude and also great sense of humour.

Beyond the real deal! Don't let the six pack fool you, dude definitely has an animal mode. Nonchalantic especially when he found out I was having my first gut punchin! Wish I was trained better to find out about the true beast within the muscle gentleman! If you are into striking, boxing, you gotta take him on when in SG! Maybe a wrassle in the future eh ?
