Profile of hashbock (152)
I do mostly submission, folkstyle/freestyle (high school/college/olympic style) and Greco-Roman wrestling. I enjoy stand-up wrestling if adequate space and padding is available, but I'm also willing to start from knees as needed.
I'm not into boxing, or brawling. I'm not at all interested in cyber, photo exchanges, skyping, or web-camming.
What I'm interested in is real wrestling in real time; if you don't have any past opponents listed, you probably shouldn't expect me to spend a lot of time chatting or messaging with you unless you're in my area and have recently joined. I always find it very bizarre when someone from halfway around the globe wants to challenge me to a match when they haven't bothered to wrestle anyone on the same continent in the five years that they've been a member.
Regarding "willingness to travel", it depends. I'll typically travel about a two hour drive, but will often drive further for events or for wrestlers that are known to be legitimate and reliable.
Future events I'm planning on attending include:
November 2 - Wrestling - Open Mat Day
- USA - Delaware, Claymont
(I'm here between 11/01/2019 and 11/03/2019)
Wrestling - Open Mat Day
- USA - Pennsylvania, Western part of, PA
Home, about midway between Pittsburgh and Erie
- USA - Ohio, Youngstown
Travel here frequently.
I am willing to travel 200 miles

hashbock is recommended by Roughmatch
Tough, tougher, toughest......these all describe this wrestler/fighter. He is intense and will go the distance. Don't let him fool you; he is one of the toughest men I have fought. Nice guy off the mats but aggressive on the mats. If you think you're up for it, send him a challenge.
hashbock is recommended by Hotrod9944
Hashbock is a great guy to wrestle with he knows great moves and he us a great teacher too if you get a chance to wrestle with him that would be nice
Did some submission wrestling with hashbock on the mats at the Claymont, DE ring. He actually pinned me, is very strong, a nice guy, and i recommend him as a good and worthy opponent.
hashbock is recommended by olderdesire
Tonight I met the legend. Everything good that has been said about him is true. He is so versed in submission wrestling. He could have kept the orthopedic surgeons busy if he wanted to finish each move. He graciously moved from the role of mauler to teacher, helping me learn some basic moves. I was no match for him but never did I feel I was wasting his time. Additionally, he is intelligent and personable. What a great guy. Im so glad I had the chance to be on the mat with him.
Spent my Sunday morning wrestling one of the legends of the site hashbock who was in town for wrestling event in Delaware yesterday, it was my pleasure to be able to hook up with him , we had spoke awhile back, he is a very nice guy to sit and talk to he can school you with his knowledge of the wrestling community, we had a submission match where we worked up a sweat and he also provided some helpful pointers for holds since he does have a background in bjj and judo thank you for those, so even though he has a huge resume of past opponents if you are not someone on that list and he is in your area reach out you will enjoy the conversation and match even if he has you tapping a few times lol

Hashbock is a great coach!!
He showed me some moves and we had a long wrestling session.
He is also a thoughtful , intelligent man.
I highly recommend him.

I met Hashbock during the wrestling camp in Lindow. Since I was only there for a short time, we met after the camp in Berlin in my mat room. Hashbock is a good strong fighter and it was great fun to go with him on the mat. And he is a wonderful person who is just as much fun spending time in the city. I'm looking forward to the next meeting.
OefightBln is recommended by hashbock
I met OefightBln in Berlin after the Lindow Wrestling Camp. He was kind enough to show me around town as well as throw together an oil wrestling event for me at this place. He's big and strong on the mats, but also safe and sane. Off the mats he's a pleasure to be around. I'll be looking forward to seeing him again next time I get to Berlin. Thanks for a great time in Berlin, OefightBln
Great fun rolling with this skilled fighter at Thunderdome. The man is knowledgeable, Patient and willing to share techniques freely. Beware his rockhard defense and proceed with caution! Off the mats HB is full of interesting stories about his travels. I want more rolls with him on the mats and more time to savor his experiences off the mats.
20/05/2018: The fantastic Einsteiger freestyle training camp in Lindow (Mark) was once the opportunity to meet some new guys as well as to catch up with some old friends, and a wrestle with hashbock during the post-training open mat sessions was one of the highlights of that this year. Freestyle is hardly the forte of either of us, but it was a useful discipline to try to put into practice what we'd been learning. I found hashbock on the mats to be a safe and considerate opponent. Nevertheless the real benefit of meeting him was off the mats as he's great company, and made a good fellow to go exploring more of Berlin and Brandenburg with, especially on a fabulous day trip out to Potsdam kindly guided for us by catchbear1 and OefightBln. Always up for a coffee or a beer, a chat or a grapple, a discussion on contemporary American politics or an impromptu Czech lesson, he's great to be around. Nevertheless we do have to hit the mats again and try some submission! Highly recommended.

I meet hashbock in a tournament, he knows his moves and taught me not to underestimate my opponent. Great master and teacher.

Hashbock is a very strong, smart technical wrslter, he can get you in ways you don't see coming, good mat work, a joy and pleasure to wrstle with anytime
hashbock is recommended by GrappleViking
Finally met this handsome American gentleman, and had a few good rolls with him. He is very experienced, obviously trained lots, and knows a few very cheeky tricks which will catch you off guard!
Really enjoyed wrestling Hashbock, and am really looking forward to round two, three, +++.. highly recommended!!
GrappleViking is recommended by hashbock
I met GrappleViking at the the Lindow Wrestling Camp organized by Einsteiger Wrestling Club of Berlin. Although the focus was primarily on freestyle training, there were also two submission training sessions. He and I worked together during one of these, and we also did some submission wrestling during the free time.
GrappleViking is strong, quick, flexible, and skilled, which makes him a very competent opponent on the mats. Fortunately he's also very methodical in his wrestling which makes him very safe to wrestle despite the strength and quickness. His leg triangle chokes are particularly effective, and he has several different entries to them.
He was also very willing to work through techniques and explore them during the training session with me.
He's a pleasant guy both on the mats and off of them, and fun to be around whether it's for training, rolling, or socializing.
I hope to get back on the mats with him again some day; you should do likewise if you get the opportunity.
hashbock is recommended by catchbear1
My best recommendation for you
Our fight yesterday in oil was great
You are strong and fast like you
Hope you come back
hashbock is recommended by hardinthering
Hashbock is a really nice guy and fantastic wrestler! Very strong and never tires out!
This man is skilled, energetic, competitive, amazingly reliable, punctual, and truly enthusiastic about wrestling: it cannot get any better. His pleasant personality and great company nicely complements the great time on the mats. Do not miss the opportunity to wrestle him !!! Indeed, I am looking forward to the next time.
I wrestled Wjones when he recently visited Pittsburgh. He's stronger and more skilled than I am, but despite that and the weight advantage, he made sure that it was a fun evening of wrestling for both of us. It's always great to find someone who has the stamina to roll for hours!!! Needless to say, because of his skill and training, he's also incredibly safe on the mats.
In addition to be a fun 'monster' on the mats, he's also a great guy off the mats as I found out when we went out to for a late dinner after the match. My only regret is that my work schedule only permitted me to wrestle him on one night during the time he was in town. Hopefully, I'll get another chance in the future. Highly recommended.
hashbock is recommended by shortandstockyOH
Was an honor to roll around with Hashbock. He is a great guy and possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience and loves to share that knowledge and experience. Can’t wait until we can get together on the mats again
shortandstockyOH is recommended by hashbock
I wrestled shortandstockyOH at the April Wrestlefest. Even though I had a considerable weight advantage on him, his energetic attacks and stamina made it a competitive match. Lots of strength, energy and stamina. Safe and sane with his attacks. It was a great roll, and I look forward to repeating it in the future. I recommend you wrestle him if you get the chance.
Hashbock knows his way around the mats and an opponent's body blindfolded. Great guy on and off the mats, as well as being a serious opponent, and teacher. I am looking forward to a lot more mat time with this man
Met Hashbock more than a decade ago in Indiana PA; and got to meet up with him at the UCW get together April 24, 2018 in Claymont DE. This man is not only skilled, but he seems to be telepathic – knowing every offensive/defensive move you might be considering to use against him ten moves down the pike. He has a counter to anything I was thinking and a counter to any counter I was thinking about his offensives.
Don't let his age or size fool you – guaranteed that if you are standing after a minute on the mat with him, it is because he is letting you to be standing. That's as far as wrestling is concerned. He is also skilled at judo; and I hope next encounter (not a decade later, I hope), I don a gi and see how few nanoseconds it takes for him to take me down. Extremely highly recommended.
I recently managed to re-connect with Spruceman. He's got great strength and endurance, and is safe and sane on the mats. He's also improved a lot in his skills over the last 10 years, especially his defensive skills. It was great to get on the mats again with him, and I'd recommend you do so also.
Fighter1983J is recommended by hashbock
I recently met Fighter1983J at the Open Ring/Open Mat in Claymont, Delaware. Even though he's more into boxing and pro wrestling, he agreed to do some submission wrestling with me. He's fun to roll with and I'd recommend him to anybody that gets a chance.

hashbock is recommended by aawrstlman
What a great way to start the new year. This guy is tough and experienced - super competitive on the mat and super nice off the mat. We had a great time wrestling both freestyle and submission. I'm going to my first tournament soon and his encouragement and coaching was very reassuring. Totally recommend him and hope to see him next time he's out. Maybe we'll make our own little PNW tournament!

Hashbock is an experienced wrestler with excellent skills and strength. It was fun to wrestle such a friendly opponent. I give him my heartiest recommendation.
wanttowrestle is recommended by hashbock
I recently got a chance to wrestle this great guy. He drove several hours to meet me and brought his mats with him for us to wrestle on. He's strong and has good stamina, so it was a great long roll and a lot of fun. I definitely recommend him if you're in his area.
hashbock is recommended by mainewrestlingchub
Finally got to roll with Hashbock a couple of times at this year's wrestlefest. Man...this guy know's his stuff on the mats. Despite the size difference he was very careful to show me some important ways to counter and defend holds and also be on the offense and use a succession of moves. Respect his knowledge, experience and friendship more than he knows I'm sure. Highly recommend Hashbock both as a wrestling opponent and one who can help show you the ropes both on and off the wrestling mats. Glad to have made a friend from our wrestling.
hashbock is recommended by Bikerguy516
I came to Wrestlefest to meet other boxers and gutpunchers but this guy was such a gentleman to show me some wrestling moves and escapes. And then he even agreed to gutpunch me a bit even though it was not his thing. I also watched him wrestle other guys and he is very experienced and sane. Everybody here at Wrestlefest wanted to roll with him. Great guy off the mats too. Highly recommended.
Bikerguy516 is recommended by hashbock
I met BikerGuy516 recently at Wrestlefest. We got to know each other over the three day event, and although he's into boxing/gutpunching and I'm into wrestling, we had some good conversation and eventually he tried some wrestling, while I tried some gutpunching. His abs can definitely take a pounding, and I couldn't punch hard enough to get the smile off of his handsome face, (His profile pics don't do him justice.) He was also game enough to try some wrestling even though it wasn't his thing, so we went over some of the basics of submission wrestling. He's a fun guy to hang out with, and I'll be hoping to meet him again.
Hashbock will make you earn your win. Don't be fooled by his age. The guy still has lots of fight and will wear you down. I enjoyed my time with this gentleman and want to spend more time with him to learn from such a skilled man.
I recently met and rolled with vocaljock at Wrestlefest. He's strong, safe, and sane on the mat. He's also a good guy to hang around with off the mats. I'm looking forward to getting back on the mats with him again. I'd recommend you do the same.
hashbock is recommended by SilverFoxFight
I have had the pleasure of getting to know Hashbock on a few occasions and wish we could meet more often! He is a skilled wrestler and Judo master but is also a gentleman who will wrestle at your level. We had a good time of intelligent conversation also off the mats. Do not miss an opportunity to meet up with him soon! Deano

He is a class guy, i love wrestling him, hope to get another chance at wrestlinghim again
Recently wrestled Ed in my hotel room. We basically did stand up muscle wrestling with each of us settling the other for a take down. Ed is safe and sane and on time. He is quite strong and has good endurance. If you are serious about your wrestling, he is your man.
I recently had the good fortune to be able to meet up with ringmaster when he was in Pittsburgh. Although the available space was limiting, we had a good workout doing some stand-up grappling. I'm looking forward to getting together with him again in the future; you should be too.

I enjoyed an afternoon wrestling with Hashbock. He's a good submission training, with Judo training that shows. I want a re-match.

Had a good time wrestling Hashbock. Good guy off the mats as well. If you get a chance, he's worth locking up with.
What a great guy...Gave me the match I wanted .Tough,strong, manly guy...if you really want a Wrestling match he's your man. Very nice, humble and considerate ...Thank you man for a great time. Highly recommend him.
I had a great time roughhousing around with Txman. He's strong and able to take a lot of punishment and can also dish it out. He's pleasant to hang around with also. I'd be happy to get together with him again sometime. Unfortunately San Antonio is so far away. If you get the chance, take it.
Really nice guy who knows his stuff! Very strong, too! I recommended him for a match if you get the chance.
I had a good time wrestling hrylegs on a trip to San Antonio. He's strong for his size, very flexible, and very relaxed and safe on the mats (or carpet which is what we actually had.) He's got a nice personality and good approach to his wrestling. All in all, it was a very nice roll, and I'd definitely recommend him to others.
Ed is a very nice guy on and off the mat. He has great experience, much more than me, and knows exactly what he is doing, yet he wrestled so that I also got my shots in and times of control. I appreciated that a lot. Despite the considerable size difference it w as fun with him.
I wrestled Txwresl on a trip to San Antonio. He was nice enough to wrestle me, even though we had a significant weight mismatch. He's strong and has good technique and good stamina, so it was an enjoyable roll. Pleasant guy off the mats also, so wrestle him if you get the chance.
I've wrestled Rob many times over the years since I first met him at Hillside many years ago. He's safe and sane on the mats, and a great guy to hang around with when off the mats also. I highly recommend him for anyone who's interested in some good wrestling.

This guy is a skilled opponent who know's what he is doing and how best to do it, I had a good time rolling around on the matts with hashbock at Wrestlefest, I definitely want a rematch when I'm back to 100%
aussieguy93 is recommended by hashbock
I recently had the good luck to wrestle aussieguy93 at Wrestlefest. He's a bundle of energy on the mats and safe and sane with his technique. He's also a good conversationalist with a good sense of humor and a killer smile, so he's a lot of fun both on and off the mats. I'd highly recommend you wrestle him if you get the chance.
I wrestled Yusuke088 on a trip to Phoenix. Although we were limited to submission ground work due to space considerations and a lack of mats, it was a very pleasant experience. He's strong and has good stamina, since we wrestled for over 2 hours. He's very controlled and safe with his submission attempts. If you get a chance to wrestle him, I'd highly recommend him.
I had a match with Hasbock this last Wrestlefest. He is very skilled and has a lot of experience. Gave me a really great work out and hope to wrestle him again real soon
I got a chance to wrestle Koorwin at the July 2016 Wrestlefest. He's a strong guy who is skilled, safe and sane with his technique. I look forward to getting back on the mats with him anytime I get the chance, and recommend that you do so too.
He's also a real nice guy off the mats, a good conversationalist, and it's pleasant to spend time with him.
I owe so many things to this man!
Hes one of the kindest,most considerate,generous people Ive met.
On the mats,his long background in the world of submission speaks volumes.Brace yourself for your destruction LOL. Off them a mellow,talkative,cultivated man.Meeting "hashbock" will be a life time experience!
GrJobber is a great jobber and a great host. I had a great time visiting him and rolling with him in Athens. If you're ever in Athens, you can skip the Akropolis Museum if pressed for time, but don't miss the chance to get on the mats with grjobber.

I took on this fine wrestler again this past Saturday. Strong, skilled - more than I can handle over all. Great guy, too. Do not miss the opportunity to wrestle him!
Met with Ed during Akrob's Wriverfest in Cincinnati, He is a very technically skilled wrestler in both freestyle and submission. Had 2 great matches with him. I hope to wrestle with him more in the future.
hashbock is recommended by averagejoe
Not only is Hashbock a highly skilled submission grappler, he is a willing teacher, even to the level of stopping in the middle of a match and replaying the move or hold so you better understand how to do it. Also bright, witty and friendly, and thereby a blast to hang out with.
averagejoe is recommended by hashbock
I've wrestled joe several times at various wrestlefests. He's strong, in shape, and has good technique on the mats, so it's always a good roll. He's also a great guy to hang around with when others are wrestling. I always look forward to another chance to roll with joe. Definitely recommended.

Strong skilled wrestler on the mat. Good guy off the mat, also. Definitely recommend for any wrestling session.
Hashbock is a very knowledgeable fighter, and an excellent teacher. I loved rolling with him and hope to roll with him again. An amazing guy on and off the mats.
I met and wrestled with Tux at the Indiana, PA Wrestlefest in July. He's a beginner but is strong and picks things up quickly. Nice guy on and off the mats. I definitely hope to be able to wrestle him again in the future and would recommend him to others.
Hashbock is an incredibly skillful wrestler and a very nice guy that will give you a chance or two and then show you who's the real master of the wrestling art :)
Passionate, enthusiastic and a great teacher, Hashbock is a very recommended wrestler!
This guy is a wrestling machine. He has great skill and endurance, and is great teacher also. I have gone and will

Hashbock is a very good wrestler. He can trap you in a second. His skills and experience in wrestling are obvious and he is ready to proove it if you challenge him. A very good and polite person in and out of the ring! So if you like competitive wrestling matches he is your opponent. Thanks for the wrestling lessons hashbock. I will use them on my next fight!

I recently had the enjoyable experience of wrestling with Christos. He's muscular and strong, and his height and long limbs make him able to use it effectively; watch out for his leg scissors and bearhug squeezes. I'm looking forward to wrestling him again if we ever happen to be in the same area again, and I'd recommend him to anybody who wants a good wrestling workout.

I recently had the pleasure to do some submission wrestling with Greekwrestler. He's strong, skilled, and has good stamina. Pleasant both on and off the mats. I definitely recommend him to anyone who wants some good technical submission wrestling.
Hashbock is an experienced, skilled wrestler, incredibly safety conscious, and a gentleman. I could not ask for a better opponent even knowing that it is rare for me to have the advantage. He is a compassionate, intelligent, funny friend off the mats.
We wrestled and practiced together at Golden Gate Wrestling. He's an excellent wrestler, great technique, super guy.
Today I had the pleasure of doing some submission wrestling with dude. He's strong and has great stamina. We rolled for three hours essentially non-stop, and I haven't found too many people on here that can keep going for that long. Wrestle him if you get the chance.
HAD A great time meeting him.
Love his shime waza holds on me !
hashbock is recommended by wrestling coach
Wrestled him a few times how over the years, Hillside, SanFrancisco, and Hillside again this year. It has been pretty even back and forth. His Judo definitely works in stopping my GRECO takedowns that work on most. We are still at a draw now, and I look forward to yet another round soon.. Definitely a real wrestler, nice guy, and very tough!
Have wrestled with Hashbock several times..Always have good matches with him. Hashbock has an endless energy reserve, great guy on and off the mats. Always look forward to matches to see what new moves he can tie me up in...
I've wrestled 4fun many times over the past several years. He's a strong guy with good wrestling instincts. Really tough to get him down and keep him there. Although he's strong, he's always careful with his opponent on the mat. He's a nice guy both on and off the mats. Lots of fun. If you can fit a match into his busy schedule, it's definitely worth it.
I've wrestled wreslebear many times over the past several years and always look forward to a chance to get on the mats with him. Lots of fun both on and off the mats. He works out regularly and his muscles are very strong. Don't let him get you in a scissors hold with his powerful legs.(unless, of course, you enjoy being squeezed.)
Hashbock is a great opponent. He is skilled, strong and tough to beat on the mats. Always a gentleman on and off the mats, don't miss a chance to take him on.
I've known Rusnak for years and had the privilege to wrestle with him many times. He's gotten much more muscular and skillful over the years. Nice guy off the mats; all business on the mats, yet safe and sane. Definitely recommend him if you're looking for a tough, physical match.
Strong, skilled, aggressive but safe submission wrestler. I've had the privilege to wrestle him several times at Wrestlefests, and have always enjoyed it. Nice guy to be around off the mats too. Definitely recommend wrestling him if you get the chance.

Strong, lean, muscular guy with lots of stamina and quite the reach with those long flexible arms and legs. Good submission technique on the mats. Safe and sane with the submissions; gives you time to tap once he gets the hold. Gentleman on and off the mat.
