Mike is a friendly, patient, considerate teacher with great coaching skills. He began by establishing what I wanted to learn and then taught me the moves and holds simply, clearly and with just enough repetition and practice for me to be sure I had grasped them, but without overloading me. Highly recommended as a coach and a great guy to spend time with.
Although Mike and I had chatted at various meets over the years I'd never had the courage to take this impressive wrestler on.
That was duly remedied yesterday on the mats at Pippas. With his skill and weight advantage I had little chance but what I did discover was a patient man who gave me some very valuable tutoring.
For the few of you who have not yet met him, do so, you'll have a great match and learn something too.
Met Mike back in about 2009. Along time to remember all the details but suffice to say we had a good time and am happy to recommend him.

I'm so honoured to meet these two veteran MF wrestlers, Mikeswuk & Dadwrestle at the same time!
Skilled, strong, quick, tough, agile & technical are the words I want to describe Mikeswuk. He once again prove to me that age is just a number.
Three of us had a great match & fun. I was locked in various locks & trapped in so many positions from them that I can't escape. I look very weak in front of these two veterans.
Off the mat, he is a very knowledgeable & intelligent guy. Also, after all my Wrestling struggles have ended, he gave me a good coaching to improve my skills. I wish I could learn more from him
An extremely polite, genuine and enthusiastic guy.
He’s willing to push and work hard, don’t be follows by any talk of age.
Very happy to fight again and highly recommended.
mikeswuk is recommended by Saturday4pm
Mike is so easy to get on with and despite his superior everything (!!!) was great to wrestle; didn't laud it over me, wasn't arrogant and we had a good, sweaty tussle or three.
He's a good conversationalist and there's more to him than being in the ring so a definite recco from me.
Had a roll with Mike as part of group meet in Barnet. Really nice guy skilled and great body. Good to meet again and certainly would recommend.
Mikeswuk was not a planned match for my wrestle fest trip but I enjoyed meeting and wrestling him he is full of knowledge about the sport, had a nice submission match with him we worked up a nice sweat , will look forward to seeing you again
Watch out for Mikeswuk! Our paths crossed at Barnet mat room. He was kind enough to take pity and offer me around.
And what a fun round it was, he has a rather unique style, it’s rather like slow motion. Taking his time to make deliberate moves, assertive and precise. I had a good lesson!
mikeswuk is recommended by Glasgow Crusher
Met this very skilled wrestler at a meet in Manchester and boy did we have a great wrestling match!.
He's very skilled, quick, tough and very agile so I knew that I'd have my work cut out wrestling him!. Great technical wrestler and stronger than he gives himself credit!.
We had a great match and he gave me some much needed coaching that's helped to improve my technique!
A very friendly and sociable guy too.
I'm looking forward to wrestling him soon and if you get the chance to meet him and wrestle, take it!.

Another great meet up with this experienced wrestler.
I would recommend Mike to anyone who is starting out and keen to learn how to wrestle safely.
It was a pleasure to meet Mike on the mats.
He is a skilled wrestler, great teacher and a gentleman as well.
Do not miss him!
It’s beautiful to see Mîke’s joy and passion while he’s fighting. I wish to have the same desire, flexibility, strength and technic to roll on the tatamis, like him, when I reach his age. Mike is in an impressive wrestling shape. His years of experience help him to adapt to every situation and find the right moves to continue to roll. Very well done. My highest respect. Outside the mats a humble gentleman. Don’t hesitate to step on the mats with him.

In Milan during a meeting, I had the chance to meet a watchmaker of the fight .What precision, we fought then al from the match, with infinite patience he delivers his knowledge. I fought as much as possible with him
This time, it was at a meeting in Lisbon that I found my watchmaker, sparring then techniques. I look forward to meeting him again during our travels. my dear Mike see you soon .
A real gentleman
Very happy to have met and fight with the Master Mikeswuk. For him this sport is a passion, a pleasure, he likes to share his techniques, well useful for the beginner that I am :-). I wanted to spend more time on the mat, during this meeting in Lisbon, to do again. I liked the person, our technical fights.Totally recommended
Great and friendly wrestler with good tecnique and always ready for a match. We had a great time. Thank you. I recommend him to anyone
A really English Gentleman. Nice and friendly. On the mat a good fighter. My best wishes for you.
It was an honour and a great pleasure to wrestle this smart, experienced, skilled and relaxed English wrestling gentleman. With a long history in wrestling he knows the mat techniques and the ropes. and is very much prepared to teach and advice.
Wrestling with him is a relaxed and tough activity, safe and sane. Very much recommended.

Very patient and skilled man. Thank you for taking it easy and showing me some techniques!
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!

mikeswuk is recommended by latestarter
its been almost a year, at my first wrestling meet, since I was "invited" on to the mats by Mike. He took me through the basics - an invaluable initiation that gave me the confidence and inspiration I needed. We have had many an instructional roll at group meets in Manchester and Barnet since then and, through his, and others, help and guidance, feel I can now call myself an "opponent" although he is clearly still the teacher. Very friendly, easy going guy who, obviously, enjoys his sport and is happy and able to share his experience. Highly recommended
I've wrestled Mike several times over the last few years, & it's always been good - he may be a lot more skilled than me but he's always up for teaching you.

I met Mikeswuk in Milan at the Manimal Wrestlefest organized by Aton.
What I most appreciated in this opponent was his great experience in this discipline.You just take a look at this profile and you don't have to investigate the truth of my words!
We wrestled for ten minutes.He acted slowly in his technique and holds in order to make me understand how much intelligent and cunning is this sport.This especially when your opponent exploits your strenght and personal experience to reverse your weak points at his advantage.
Thank you Mikeswuk!
I hope to meet him again in U.k wherever will be a meeting.I need his teaching and his wisdom!
mikeswuk is recommended by wrestlerdu
Mikeswuk ist ein Erfahrener Wrestler, der auch viel Techniken kann. Mikeswuk gibt auch sein Wissen weiter, dafür bekommt Mikeswuk ein Daumen hoch 👍 Ich musste Kämpfen wie ein Stier. Mikeswuk ist ein Freundlicher Mensch, ich kann ihn nur Empfehlen und du wirst neue Erfahrung machen. Ich freue mich auf dem nächsten Fight mit ihm.

Had the pleasure of meeting Mike at Pippa's in Manchester.
Mike is a wrestling fanatic.We grappled and it was great fun.He's a guy willing to show you moves and locks that can help you to improve.He's a strong man and an absolute gentleman.If you need someone to show you moves and improve your technique then Mike is definitely your man..
His politeness is second to none and he shows respect to newbies like myself.I enjoyed wrestling Mike and hope we'll lock horns again soon.

Great man and very good fighter. ..It was a pleasure to meet him. Super recommend
If I had half the skill and experience of this man I would be very happy indeed. We had a good session together and he was very patient in teaching me some stuff - mostly BJJ technique - which I hope I'll be able to remember in the future and use in earnest. A very generous and helpful man to roll with and I very much hope we will be able to meet again. Not only is he an expert on the mats but also very charming and easy to chat to when not actually wrestling. Totally safe/sane and easily adapts to whatever level you are at. Of course recommended!

Had the chance to roll with Mike at pippas! If so a rather short match, we still had a good grapple.
Mike is far more experienced and more skilled than me.. Needless to say, he really had me working for it. I learned a few things!
Off the mats, he is a lovely genuine guy, and easy to talk with.
I really enjoyed our match, and look forward to a rematch in the future!
i had the pleasure to meet mikeswuk yesterday at pipas. i really enjoyed the nearlly 2h we passed on mat. he is strong resillient good stamina to play safe sane and for fun. he always want more roll even if he taps or if the make taps. always in good spirit.

Enjoyed the opportunity to hook up with mikeswuk on the mats at Pippa’s yesterday. Knowledgeable, skilled grappler who is a good guy wrestle and a friendly, interesting guy to meet.
mikeswuk is recommended by GrappleFun
A gentleman and a master of his art! Mike is a skilled and strong wrestler who is very generous in sharing his knowledge and patient whilst you put his teachings in to practice. He has an easy manner and a relaxed attitude and is happy to adjust to his opponent's level and quickly responds to any change in pace. He knows his stuff and is a tough but always fair opponent! We had a great time on the mats and an equally good time off them with easy and engaging conversation. Don't miss the chance to lock up with this guy on one of his many visits to London, he is highly recommended and I look forward to our next meeting!
12 Nov 17: Great to meet Mike for the first time at Barnet. He's a real friendly guy and a brilliant tutor. I learned loads from this skilled wrestler - mucho recommendo!
I've had many group sessions with Mike before, but again most recently today at Barnet's group meet.
He's very skilled and does a great job at getting and keeping control right from the start. During my earlier times on this site when I was a beginner, he was also a very patient coach and definitely helped me along with some good tips + techniques.
Another 'essential' opponent who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thanks, Mike!

Met Mike yesterday at a group meet at Walthamstow
Had a good tussle on the mats and he was kind enough to wrestle to my (low) standard. Taught me a few things on the way too. Off the mats a charming and friendly guy
Me vs Mike is like the champ (him) vs the chump (me)
Felt safe and sane on the mats, glad to have met him for a wrestle, he gave me a few tips. Recommendation is high with this one
mikeswuk is recommended by Lomandlad42
20/9/17 ......well it's been about 5 years since I last wrestled Mike and tonight I got the chance to reconnect for an amazing session. Since our last meet this guy has come a long way. It was a great give and take match with lots of subs both ways. Mike took the time to show me great counter moves and a few sub holds . A very enjoyable session for me even though I think I will ache tomorrow and now I know he's in the area often I will definitely be meeting again. Still as charming and friendly as I remember and a pleasure to chat with. 👍
Amazing guy to roll with, gave me the the run around and even managed a few subs too, highly recommended a must meet in my books, a definate rematch is on the cards, great fella, thanks for a great session mike :-)
24.06.13.....just had my 3rd match wiv mike ...this guy just gets better and better, amazing 2 hr ring session gonna feel it tomorrow, don't be deceived by his stats, he's a fast strong tough opponent who is a great submission wrestler makes you work hard, don't think I'm gonna be as lucky next time, great workout mate thanks.....one of the most sociable guys too, great company after , 5* reccomendation

Jay is fit strong and fast. had a terrific time with him on the mats and looking forwrd to locking up again. he raised my game and gave me an excellent workout. thanks again
add to that an improving technique - we had a tough couple of hours in the ring, and i would definitely recommend him as an all round nice guy, tough but a great wrestle. in my top 3 list of guys to wrestle
grappled again after several years. he is strong, tough and skilled. had an awesome time. highly recommended
Managed to wrestle at a meet at Pippas. He has got good technical skills and the knowledge and experience to use them and make you work for a hold. Very nice guy, and was kind enough to teach me a better way of doing a hold or 2. Greatly recommended.

Met Mike at a group meet in Manchester and I was very happy he approached me if I wanted to wrestle!
We had a short but very enjoyable round on the mats and there's much to be said about Mike's skills! He's calm and collected and even under pressure doesn't seem disturbed at all.
Besides, he packs a good amount of strenght so it's not easy at all to just force submissions out of him.
Off the mats, he is a cheery and delightful man with whom you're able to have a good laugh and a serious discussion too! Definitely try to meet him if he's in your neck of the country (which he might be, with all the travelling he's doing!)
mikeswuk is recommended by Arabwrestler87
i can't add more than what his past opponents said about MIkeswuk. i can just be honored and thankful to him to drive all way just to meet me. on mat he was very easy on me plus safe and sane. i hope to have round 2 when i visit UK again. of the mat he is joy company and nice to be with.
i recommend him for anyone who want to learn from the expert and have a great match
25/05/2015: After meeting him on the mats and in the ring at Pippa's in Manchester, I got the benefit of encountering mikeswuk's skills again during the submission grappling classes at the excellent International Wrestlers' Camp in Lindow (Mark). He was a huge help in repeating the submissions and counters that we'd had demonstrated with me and letting me try them out on him with a suitably educational level of resistance or cooperation as was needed; along with chipping in the benefit of his own extensive experience from time to time. So I'm looking forward to a further grapple with this skilled but unassuming wrestler back in England and seeing if I can remember what I've been taught. A pleasant, friendly, engaging chap off the mats too; and therefore highly recommended.
13/06/2015: Well I got some more grappling in with mikeswuk back in England, at John's meet, and was extremely pleased to take a few subs off him! [That they were subs that he'd spent a good, very patient half hour coaching me in how to achieve we will overlook for now!] A very talented wrestler and a lovely bloke, I'm looking forward to more coaching and more grappling.
Had a good match with Mike at a group meet, his skill and experience really showed when trying to attempt him to submit and a right battle ensued. Enjoyed his company off the mat who was also willing to help me with a move or two. Thanks Mike!!
What can I say about Mike that hasn't already been said? He s not only a great wrestler so smooth on mats in the lock-ups but he is also always wiling to offer advice, demos and coaching - a true gent.
Each time we met I've forgotten something from his prior advice but he reminds me "relax"!, and adds a bit " the mat is your friend" this time .
Thanks Mike , I'l keep trying
mikeswuk is recommended by Rock Hard Pete
I knew Mike at LAW for years before joining Meetfighters. He is very knowlegeable is prepared to teach you his moves. Safe, reliable and well recommended. Good to know both on and off the mat.
We last met at Grapevine on 30th January, 2016. He kept me on my toes (and back).
17 April 2017
Mike and I have met over a dozen times since my last recommendation. He still gets the better of me, but not so easy now as I am at last remembering some moves. Highly recommended, and don't let his light weight and pleading "I'm an old man" fool you, he is a very good wrestler!
Mike is a gentle off the mats and a tough guy on them. Fun to wrestle and knows his stuff. A great meet anytime
Mister Mike is simply a master. His knowleadge and experience are great. If you want to learn or improve do not hesitate meeting him. Thanks a lot Mike!
Mikeswuk is a very kind person, highly skilled and very generous. Very recommended for newcomers and people who wants to improve the wrestling and grappling techniques. He is also extremely tenacious during the fights, you must have imagination, a good cardio and a minimum of skills if you want to defeat him ! But... Why would you defeat such a gentleman ?
mikeswuk is recommended by wrstlarturo
I met Mike in Gaillard, at Aton's meeting.
The guy has a lot of experience, knows his skills and definitely knows what to do on the mats in a man2man wrestling match. He certainly doesn't need my recommandation, as he's well know from the wrestler community and appreciated. It was a pleasure for me to meet him and to roll together on the mats, i enjoyed him a lot. Outside the mats, a real gentleman!
Completely trustable and recommended
Mike must be the great teacher of wrestling. We had a hard, competitive match in a much too small space and he guided me with suggestions, tips and stories. I presume he is a bit of a chameleon; adapting to the level of his opponent. I definitely had the impression he was toying with me, but thanks for that. A true gentleman, uncomplicated and trustworthy. Highly recommended.
We met briefly last year, but didn't have a chance to wrestle. Strong guy that knows his moves, gave some nice pointers too! I see why so many people have met up with him!

What an absolute gent! We met tonight at a round robin meet at Barnett and had a couple of great rollls. He is safe and sane and an excellent teacher. High marks for this experienced wrestler. A privilege to meet and I look forward to meeting again.
I finally got to wrestle Mike yesterday and will admit that after seeing him in action I was aware that it would be a challenge to beat him. That is exactly how it turned out and we had a good to and fro match. I'd like to think we were fairly evenly matched but suspect that in round two he'll step up a gear and wipe the floor with me. Bring it on Mike!
10/Dec/16 and round 2. The tips and lessons that Mike showed me in round one were successfully used against him and he fell into the same trap a few times. I think it is true to say I had the upper hand in the two matches but I still had to struggle to get anything out of him. The main thing is that we had great fun and laughed all the way through.
He also gave me a few tips...
Mike is also good strong wrestler,and he is also a great friend too,looking forward to our next match,bring on round 2.

When you see Mike walk in you know you are guaranteed three things, a great wrestle, an abundance of knowledge and tips, and great company.
Hard to add anything new to all the great things written about him, but I echo all the sentiments.
Totally, absolutely and without question the highest recommendation.

Met Mike at the group meet at Manchester and had a very enjoyable long lesson in how to wrestle, I just wish I could've retained at least half of what he was willing to teach me.
He's a VERY experienced wrestler and will take you on at whatever level you are, and he's a great guy to chat with on and off the mats. 100% recommendation from me and hope to meet again for another lesson soon.
Mike is a legend in our wrestling world.He's participated in many events worldwide but he never rests on his laurels.He's an inspiration and an honor to have wrestled him more than once.I always bow at his dexterity,knowledge and adroitness when it comes to making you submit on the mats.Off them such a mellow,sweet man.Another match is on the cards,my friend.Highly recommendable!
Mike has the perfect attitude, ability, and athleticism for matrooms, pro rings, cages, and websites like this one. He can coach. He can wrestle. And he can still learn and build muscle. You guys over in the U.K. are lucky to have him, and I am lucky he travels. I hope to wrestle him again....

I met Mike at Grove Park on 4 April where we had a really great sweaty submission bout - it was a great workout for us both. Mike is a very fit wrestler with masses of stamina, skill and determination and boy is he strong !! Mike was kind enough to give me a few tips and show me a couple of holds. I had a great time and I had to work bloody hard for every submission I got. Roll on the rematch !!
Mike is a gentleman, very friendly and open. Helped me feel comfortable at my first Barnet group event. Technically adept and impressively flexible.
Mike is a very strong wrestler, with a lot of experience in submission wrestling. He is a very nice guy. I highly recommend him.

Wrestled Mike a few times on the mats in Hendon. A great guy to meet and wrestle. Safe sane off and on the mats.
Mike is tough and fun. We had messaged for a while and it was great to finally meet and wrestle. It was an unforgettable experience. I would gladly wrestle him again.
Skilled wrestler who has the moves, holds and techniques of the experienced grappler that he is. We had a fun, sweaty two hour session of multiple submission wrestling. Very nice guy as well. Can't wait to wrestle Mike again. Highly recommended.
Finally got to meet this guy for a grapple.
He oozes experience and is a great wrestler.
He's happy to teach or coach and can wrestle down to your level.
You will have a great time with this guy if you get the opportunity to meet him.
Off the mats, friendly, chatty and a nice guy to spend time with.

Mike is a great guy. Although everyone else at the pre Wrestlefest gathering was into submission, Mike agreed to wrestle me pro style. We had a fun match. He is quite nimble and can wrap u up like a pretzel in no time. I would hit the mats with Mike again.
Was good to meet Mike again on the mats. He is a great wrestler, very skilful and patient and kindly took the time to give me a few pointers. Guys like him give Meetfighters a good name.
Great meeting the experienced Mikeswuk for a wrestle. He is a very versatile wrestler with a wide repertoire of skills. Such a nice gentleman off the mats too. Highly recommend to everyone at all levels

What a brilliant guy! Terrific humerous wrestler, waves the age card in your face then nezt thing you know it he has you in the all the wrong positions and yer struggling to not tap. A very well experienced wrestler and in great shape too, he is methodical and calculared on the mats with a level of stamina that does not seem human.
When not wrestling he was very happy to show new tricks from his clearly vast knowledge on moves, holds and counters that he has, and makes great conversation too.
Top guy who deserves a 100% recomendation for wrestlers of any skill level, thanks mike!

Well what can I say? Cracking guy off the mats and a bloody good wrestler on them! We met at High Barnett mat room for a wrestle and he lived up to the very long list of recommendations that proceeds him.
This session was a little out of my comfort zone being a more traditional wrestling match with competitive grappling and ground based submissions over the more fantasy style pro I'm used to but Mike was a fantastic teacher and a patient opponent. I had an absolute blast!
Learnt a lot about the art of wrestling and myself as a wrestler. Seems I have strong instincts in defense but lack technicality and clinical finishing in offence but I'm well up for trying again :)
Throughout Mike's communication was fantastic and his manner a joy to be around. Put simply he's a guy you just love to wrestle (even when he's working your arm like he wants to take it off you!). His experience far outweighed any size or power advantage I may have and he plays the 'Old frail man' card like a deadly weapon.
DO NOT BE FOOLED! :p This guy can trade holds with the best of them! Frail my arse.....
Can't wait to wrestle again :) and if you get the chance to wrestle Mike, don't let it pass you by! Top bloke.

I've met and wrestled Mike at group meets for many years now, and I can only add to the growing list of recommendations. Always safe and challenging to wrestle, he gets better with each match.
Mikeswuk is a talented wrestler with lots of experience. A really nice guy too who will take time out to demonstrate holds and teach you new moves. Will definitely be meeting him again.

great guy to meet up with who really loves the sport. A regular at the nyc wrestlefests, he will give you a good match and is very hospitable.
11.10.2014 Happy to met again this wrestler, he is one of my favourite opponents. He is strong and tireless and I can't wait to meet him again next trip *** 19/21.10.2013 What a great wrestler!!! I had long and sweaty session with him and want to have more. Met first in Barnet and after 2 days alone in a very hot and long match ... WOW! challenge him!
Just had a match with Mike. This guy is tougher than I expected and definitely make you earn your submissions. I'd wrestle him anytime he was in Cleveland.

Always an enjoyable meet with him

I have nothing but good to write about this guy...
He is a perfect gentleman, and a great wrestler. we have wrestled twice. He knows his holds, and will give you a good time, please meet up with him if you get the chance.
Met Mike at the Grapevine group meet and enjoyed my bout with him. We have met before - a while back - but I'd forgotten what a skilled and strong guy he is. Definitely recommended
I met and wrestled mikeswuk on Saturday 12th April 2014 (Manchester Meet). I must admit I misjudged him without meeting him.
He is tough, and a experienced wrestler and will put up a hard grapple. A natural teacher too. Off the mats, one of the kindest and humblest people I have met - thank you.
Like hugefan said: "its worth saying again if you want to learn about wrestling meet Mike he is not great for his age he is just great."
Mike is a skilled wrestler and a great guy. He gave me a great lesson and I hope that I can make use of all he taught me. Strong and skilled, patient and friendly, I would recommend him to any wrestler here. Thanks Mike for a valuable lesson!
Met Mike earlier this evening for a late session at Barnet. Had a really good wrestle and loved the way he slowly moves you into a submission. He's skilled, safe and sane and enjoys wrestling for fun. It doesn't matter how many subs each wrestler gets its the fact that you both get enjoyment out of the meet. I certainly did, would recommend and wrestle again.
Thank you Mike for travelling all the way did to meet which showed me the dedication and respect you have for all wrestlers. THANK YOU !!
I met Mike at a group meeting in Barnet recently.
Good wrestler who knows his stuff and willing to coach newcomers like myself. Patient and sane - a really good opponent. I look forward to more tussles with him in the future.
As expected, I knew I would have a good grapple with this guy, my expectations was right. He was skilled, methodical and agile. This guy made me sweat and kept keeping the pressure on me. A great advisory, safe and sane and he was reliable. I would def meet again as he comes well recommended.
Mikeswuk is such a charming wrestler with amazing stories to share. He's enthusiastic, sociable, easy to beat with my scissors, but most importantly, an absolutely fun wrestler :D
Mikeswuk can also teach you and train you to be a better wrestler and he is also very welcoming and squeezable. :)
Mike was my first opponent at wrestlefest 2014 in NYC. Glad to have such a nice guy as my first opponent. He is also a great guy to talk with and a good teacher too. I definitely recommend him as he will give you a tought time and he is very safe.

I met Mike at the Barnet mat room & he was a very helpful teacher, a fun opponent and a very nice guy.
Great technik and skills, and what a stamina, he can wrestle more and more....and after some more!!! Very gentle guy , I would love meet him again for a nice chat and after grab him for hours in a match!!!
I had a great time with Mike ! A match combined with a lot of practice. I was very happy that he was willing to teach me several wrestlingskills. I was impressed by his experience and he is a very good teacher: relaxed, clear, helpfull, modest and fun to wrestle with. He also has a very good stamina and strength. All good ingredients for a good match ! A real privilege to meet this guy ! Definitely hope to meet him again during my following trips to London. Thanks for a great meet ! Highly recommended.
I'm really glad I wrestled mike, a very skilled and tenacious wrestler who has an excellent defence. Although we didn't fight for too long as it was at a group meet I will definitely arrange a longer bout with the master in due course.
I am sure this is the fourth time I have met Master Mike but perhaps he tired me out too much on the third occasion for me to write anything. Once again great sweaty battle with a few tips thrown in. Being so mean with giving me an arm I had to resort to giving him loads of hugs, the hard crushy kind of hug involving arms and legs but still it took all my bulk to get the odd tap out of him. its worth saying again if you want to learn about wrestling meet Mike he is not great for his age he is just great.
Met master Mike for a second session this evening, having explained his neck was a little sore i spent most of the evening trying to choke him but only because he makes getting an arm such hard work. We had a great sweaty session with Mike wearing me down in his usual style until he made his classic error - he started to give me tips - sometimes I wonder who the beginner is - doesn't he know the first rule of wrestling, don't tell your opponent what to do ha ha. Having learnt lots of new skills and successfully using some of them I shared with Mike my special skill of nipple tweaking, it wasn't one he had learned at the wrestling club, i think he was impressed. Its worth saying twice or three or four times, do meet Mike if you get the chance.
Mike, like me wears glasses, so not only did i have a fantastic evening wrestling i had the added bonus that with his glasses off he thought i was both young and attractive. Should have gone to spec savers!
Definitely one of the best meets I have had, I am a little heavier and taller so when we began I almost, so nearly managed to get him in some effective holds but class came through, just as I got close he would slowly work me into a a very safe but inescapable hold to which i had no answer. Then he made his big mistake, he gave me some tips ha ha. I can honestly say I learned more tonight than in any previous meet and surprisingly with his advice i managed to get a couple of taps. Mike is a fantastic wrestler and for any of you put off by his age, just grow up, if you are serious about wrestling learn from the master. I should add he is charming and in my usual tradition of being shallow has a great hairy body. looking forward to my next lesson from a lovely teacher.
One of the genuine good guys. Despite Mike's far superior knowledge and experience I was never made to feel like the underdog. I had a truly great time and look forward to many repeat sessions.
Mike is a great guy and awesome wrestler. If you ever get the chance
to wrestle him, I would highly recommend it. I look forward to another
match with him soon.

Met and wrestled Mike at Roberts on 24th July. Mike is quite knowledgeable guy. He was teaching me the pre-wrestling warm up exercises (stretches) that wrestlers do to relax and loosen up their muscles. We had a good submission match for 4 hours (with some breaks for sips of water). He is quite strong, fit and skilled for his age. I finally got a submission or two out of him. I blocked a lot of his good submission holds. He kept coming back at me with more holds. Nice guy overall (on and off the mats). Had a good match with him and look forward more matches in the future. Highly recommend him to others who like good and long submission bouts.
Had the pleasure of hosting Mike for a wrestle and had a great time with this first class wrestler - he's very skilled, knows a million holds to use against you but a very genuine, friendly, fun guy on and off the mats and is always safe and sane and respects opponents limits. Highly recommended and hope to meet up again soon!
No-nonsense submission grappling!
Good fun, and more real, sane, fit and reliable than many 30-year old on this site.

04:05:13. A second encounter with Mike at the Barnet group meet. Mike is always so generous with advice and tips which is a real bonus for a beginner like me and as a patient & highly skilled guy with nothing to prove he is prepared to give you a break; that makes for an enjoyable wrestle for both. Highly recommended at any level and looking forward to future encounters when he has time in his busy wrestling schedule.
Had a very good wrestling session with Mike at Barnet. He is strong and has a wide range of offensive and defensive techniques. Extremely personable and well-mannered.
I would wrestle him again - if he can fit me into his busy schedule.

Short match but very enjoyable. Really nice guy, surprisingly strong and pretty tricky. Thanks and see you again if you are down this way.

Just met Mike for a local hotel match. Turned out to be another lesson for the newbie from a more experienced veteran. He got some painful submissions out of me, but I was pleased to get a couple out of him too. A good experience, which I hope to repeat.

I have now known Mike over a number of years and seen his wrestling technical knowledge and skill steady grow. Mike is now a competent wrestler and the training he has undertaken over the last four year have sevred him well. I look forward to doing some more training with him,

Mike is a good strong technical wrestler and well worth a meet. Looking forward to a rematch

Mike is a reliable and surprisingly tough wrestler who can give a really good account of himself on the mat. He's steadily building his submission wrestling skills and and is getting better and better all the time. Pleasure to wrestle with.
Have known & wrestled Mike for several years. Always enjoy a wrestle with him, very skilled fit & strong, looks good in a singlet too. Exceptionaly nice guy. What more can you ask for. def recommend
Wrestle him! Mike is strong and skilled in freestyle as well as submission, is always up for a match, and has the endurance to go for hours – or rather, days.
Although he was modest and self-effacing in his comments to me, Mike is a strong, fit, and skilled guy on the mats for someone who is a beginner. More importantly, he is a true gentleman and a one of the most charitable souls I've ever met.
We met at Wrestlefest in NYC and I had a match scheduled with another wrestler. Wrestlefest NYC only does hotel matches and I was sharing a room with a person who did not want to use it for wrestling, plus he suffered a muscle spasm the night before, so he was resting. My wrestling partner would not get his room for a couple of hours and we might not be able to do a reschedule. Mike was kind enough to lend us his room at the last minute to use it to wrestle.I will always be grateful for him as I really was looking forward to meeting this guy on the mats and I was at the event for just two days.
Thanks you very much for being such an upstanding guy, Mike.

I have known and have been wrestling Mike since he was an awkward novice to a fit, strong and technical wrestler. I can't relax like I used to and every time we meet he just gets better and better and now I can learn from him. Also, Mike is very reliable and sociable and we get on well on and off the mats. I'm glad we meet regularly.

have had some really good fights with mike. strong and supple, we've had to battle against each other. like the way his mind works - and want to fight him again!

Mike is a great guy and I'd recommend him wholeheartedly. We teamed up together in Grove Park a few years ago and also face each other in an oil match. Both were great experiences. Thanks, Mike.
Of all my past opponents, Mike is probably the guy I know better than any other and I think we've had seven or eight matches over the years, many in oil and all, without exception, fun.I was Mike's first ever opponent some years ago at Hendon, and I have seen an enormous improvement in his wrestling skills, strength and technique, since our early battles.Needless to say, despite my height and weight advantage,I don't find it at all easy against him now and technically, he is far my superior, though we still sweat profusely when we battle.
In addition, Mike is a great guy - friendly and reliable - and he certainly won't let you down when you take him on. Give him a go - you'll enjoy it !
