Although sparkytbg is stronger and is far more skilled at BJJ than I, he made our match this evening safe and fun. After several lengthy rolls he took the time to provide some very useful instruction that I will certainly put to good use in upcoming matches. As so many others here have said, he is a great guy and makes it well worth the trip to Boston to learn from his font of submission wrestling skill and knowledge.
He was an amazing host and is very strong. He was very flexible with timing and was able to meet very last minute. I was dead tired after about an hour but I had a ton of fun and got a great workout from it. Definitely looking forward to a rematch and highly recommend him.
I had the best time grappling with Sparky in my hotel room. We had an easy time setting up the match and went at it as soon as he showed up. I wanted to wipe the smile off his handsome face, but didn't get a chance. This guy doesn't give an inch, in the most fun and aggressive way. He didn't let up, he was tireless and really good natured as he kept putting me through my paces. I would have a re-match in a second.
Have not rolled with Sparky in years. Still a handful. Two handfuls. I had zero chance of getting him to submit but still had great time. He loves to grapple and a great guy. There is a reason he has so many recommendations guys.

Caught a quick match with sparky while he was in town. He took the first few subs easily with his size, strength, and experience, then slowed it down to my level for a more back and forth match. Overall would recommend - hoping for round two someday!
Had a great match with sparkytbg today. This guy has a great athleticism about him. He definitely wore me down. Being new he took some time to show me some moves, I appreciated this. Great guy on and off the mat. Looking forward to meeting up again.

Sparky was so skilled it can hardly be called a match - he was very willing to tone it down to my level and teach me some moves. I appreciated his patience and would love to see him in action!
sparkytbg is recommended by Roughmatch
DO NOT.....let me repeat DO NOT let this man's size fool you. He is 100% muscle, skill, wrestling god, and I'm not sure what else! He is fantastic. Submitted me over and over and over and over without me getting in ONE hold, period. Very worthy opponent and worth meeting. Was even helpful in explaining some of the house rules of the event since I was a new comer. Thank you bud
sparkytbg is recommended by ready2fight
This guy truly is a force to be reckoned with - very strong and tactical in his grappling as he found a way to put me in holds that no one has ever gotten me. He is also just a really easygoing and pleasant person to converse with as well! Do not miss the opportunity to meet up him.
sparkytbg is recommended by Knightwing77
Have met up with this guy several times over the years going back almost 10 years now. He’s deceptively strong for his size and always patient with me as I don’t have his level of technique or strength. Met up recently and he succeeded in pressing me over his head (mostly). What a beast. Nice guy too. Hope we have the chance to meet up again.
sparkytbg is recommended by RelentlessRival
Fun guy to roll with and good skill. Tough to submit and had some nice counters and defense. Def recommend rolling with him if you want a challenge
sparkytbg is recommended by JasonAnders
I have wanted to wrestle him since last year when I narrowly missed an opportunity. I wasn't disappointed at all. He is wxrrwmely.skilled and didn't let me get a win. I appreciated the lessons he taught me. Definite recommendation!
Had fun trying to get an advantage on this guy, just couldn't get anything on him... Strong and quick grappled and great host.. Hope for a rematch with better results! : )

It has Been a few months since Last I saw Harry we used to roll/train together every Saturday morning very early. It was great to be able to do so again this weekend I for one missed him. As usual Harry pocesses the skill from years of formal training and I of course had the power. I am sure if we are able to train together on a regular basis he will get his strength back up to match mine again then he will have it all. It really felt like old times and It was obvious that we were both having a good time. It's my hope we can try to find a regular training day again. I highly recommend this super skilled technition.
I've had years of formal class training in Bjj and Sparky has "black belt" level defense. It's based on good technique and not raw strength and is movement focused so you get a great work out just trying to get past it to try to work some offense. Because his grappling is technique based, he's not going to injure you trying to force a move to work or by cranking on a hold. Grappling with him is a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.
He's also very laid back and easy to get along with which always makes the rolling more enjoyable.
Jtidix is a great find. He has been my best training partner. He never lets me lower my guard and really makes me work hard. I am hoping in the near or far future to get my first submission on him. Like the elusive six pack, good to have goals. Even if you never reach them. I look forward to many more rolls with him.
What can I say.. Sparks is a champ. It was a real treat to wrestle with someone with so much skill and experience.
It was a rough and tough match, and of course, very fun. Cool guy, very cordial and very knowledgeable about maintaining a safe yet highly enjoyable time. Highly recommend!
Sparkytbg is a skilled and friendly guy. I had an enjoyable match with him. Be sure to wrestle him when you have the chance to do so.
sparkytbg is recommended by wrestlnfool
Sparkytbg is a strong wrestler who has great skills in submission wrestling. He is really talented and know his stuff. I would definitely recommend him if you have a chance to wrestle him. He is also one of the nicest guys I have met on and off the mat.
sparkytbg is recommended by NYleanmuscle
Like others have written here, he knows his stuff. Will give you a wrestling clinic and workout all at once. Easy to communicate and set up matches. Very nice guy. Worth the sweat and exhaustion😉
Met the spark at thunderdome. what a man to enjoy on and off the mats! he must have been rolling since he was in the womb, given his depth of knowledge and ease for simplifying explanations. as with all excellent wrestlers, it is a joy to be locked up with him even when i can control only 5% of the action. safe on the mats; casual and open off the mats. hope to get more rolls with him.
Wow, just have to confirm and agree with all the awesome things already said about this great guy! Went totally out his way to set up the match. Strong, skilled, was outclassed and gave me a great workout. Loves wrestling and sharing his knowledge and journey. Just cant really say enough. Definitely do not pass up on any chance to meet him.
What a GREAT beginning to my NYC trip of 2018, Meet Sparkytbg, super nice guys and so much fun on the mats. Really knows his stuff but willing to share his knowledge which is awesome. super easy to set up meeting and super fun to spend time with. Cant wiat to meet him again, highly recommended
sparkytbg is recommended by AllStarPuma54321
Excellent time in our Wrestlefest meetup. We had a good hour and a half of back and forth. Fun, strong, and knows his moves. Great match up.
Great guy and gracious host. Had a lot of fun working up a sweat. Definitely knows his moves and was definitely able to show me a few things to keep in mind for next time. Looking forward to our next match!
My first match in six months, Sparky didn't disappoint – very tenacious guy with a pretty tough, active guard. This guy moves well and as others have stated possesses a strong upper body. I'd say he's deceivingly strong all over. He put up quite a fight and really made me work! Also, he smiled through the whole match; he just loves to wrestle and made for a fun time.
sparkytbg is recommended by manwrestler
Great host and wrestler. Very accommodating to my skill level. Has that devlish smile with every submission
Highly recommend for anyone who has the chance to meet him. 11 out of 10
Sparky is a strong technical fighter. It was impossible to get anything past his guard but I had a good time learning some new moves, which will be put to good use in our next match.
Had an awesome roll with this great wrestler. Sparky has an encyclopedic knowledge of submission holds so no matter what position you are in you better be on guard. Soarky is also a good teacher he is happy to instruct and share because I garuntee you will be submitted with a move you never knew before. Really fun Wrestler, smart strong good looking and he never stops smiling. I had a blast with this gold medal athlete and look forward to a rematch
sparkytbg is recommended by CNYWrestler
If you want to learn what you don't know about submission wrestling and want to get better than sparkytbg is for you. He is very strong, very technical and will certainly put you through your paces. He taught me some new moves I'll be using soon. Great guy and host too!
sparkytbg is recommended by Hairywrestler midwest
This is an awesome guy. Extremely skilled he countered every move I tried always with a smile in his face. I think it was his magic rash guard that made him invincible. Great match great guy hope to meet again.
Really nice easy-going guy. The match was really easy to set up. As others have said, he's got great upper body strength and is pretty skilled. It made for a really fun and tough competitive match. Definitely recommend.
Sparky and I had a last minute match at close to 11:15 pm with limited time... We light wrestled for over an hour. We also exchanged holds. He's got an awesome array of holds he used on me. He's a good wrestler, and next time we meet I hope to plan it where we both aren't rushed and go at it much harder next time! But I can tell he's a very formidable wrestler, good on offense and defense. If you get a chance to take him on I would definitely recommend it!!
This guy is strong and really kind.
Good instincts on mats
Always come back for more.
If he keeps training... BE careful !

Fue un encuentro muy intenso y divertido. Muy buen luchador y mejor persona. Amable, respetuoso, cuidadoso y amigable. Me explicó más de una vez como finalizarle cuando lo tenía ahí y no sabía como rematar. Cuidadoso cuando lo hacía él. Lo recomiendo 100%.
sparkytbg is recommended by madridwrestler
Its been the third time i wrestle this guy and each time he is better and better. He is really strong for his size and quite skilled . We had a sweaty match at home and was kind enough to adapt to me. Really good both at defense and attacking though i try my best not to make him too easy. Off the mats a friendly guy and good conversationalist . Independently of your skill level he is a perfect advisable match. Don't miss him if he knocks at your door.
sparkytbg is recommended by pndfighter
Spending time on the mats with sparky was a great opportunity to get back into it for me. As he already put, it was my first time on the mats in quite a while so I couldn't quite give him the match he deserves!
Anyways, he is a really nice guy, well trained and skilled in what he is doing. He is an interesting guy on the mats and off of them. It was an honor to spend time with him and we hopefully get to repeat that in the future when I'm fully fit again!
pndfighter is recommended by sparkytbg
I had a great time with pndfighter. He was very skilled and enjoyable to wrestle. Even though he had not wrestled in a while he was a formidable opponent. He was also one of the most gracious hosts I have met. I look forward to rolling again and spending more time with him.
sparkytbg is recommended by LukasHuber
A very reliable opponent who arrived on schedule. A man who really wants to fight. Very strong and skilled, I did not succeed in submitting him. But he did!
Sparkytbg is a great guy. Really friendly on and off mat, he knows how to handle a rookie like me and not just stomp him. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a fair fight against a highly skilled opponent who stands his ground like a brick wall! :)
I had the opportunity to wrestle sparkytbg during a recent trip to Boston and had a great time! He is safe, very skilled, and strong and puts up a good fight. Nice guy off the mats as well. Definitely look him up if you are in town and want a match. I highly recommend him.
sparkytbg is recommended by jiminmaine
Sparkytbg is a skilled wrestler, much more so than I, still, we had a good time on the mats. We wrestled for a good hour and worked up a quite a sweat. He was not overly aggressive and allowed me to try leading the action some of the time (though I always ended up tapping in the end). I felt like I learned a bit more about wrestling from him. I hope we can meet up again.
3 Dec 16. Had an awesome submission match today. This guy has skill, is controlled, safe and sane. We went for close on 1.5hours nonstop before he got the one and only sub.
Real nice guy and someone I would love to meet again and also recommend. Experienced and knowledgable enough to know that he can adapt to any level.
Look no further if you want to seriously test yourself, over an hour of nothing but sweat, muscle, and struggle. Don't get cocky though, Sparky, I'll be back to take you down hard.
A very skilled wrestler. He got submissions, I got pins and both of us got a lot of fun. It was a sweaty and intensive wrestling match, but always sane and safe. He is not just a good wrestler, he is also a very nice person. Looking forward for a rematch with him.
Wow.. um... Sparky is one of the toughest wrestlers I've ever fought. Extremely strong arms, skillful wrestlers, yet methodological and careful with his opponents. Even by toning it down or by giving me chances, Sparky always had the last word and was always able to slip out of any of my holds. His arms are so strong that I can only find myself defending in order to delay my eventual defeat.
If you are a beginner, Sparky is ideal for you because you can learn a LOT from him and he'll watch out for you so that you don't get hurt. If you are an expert, he'll make you look like a beginner :) by making you tap after tap after TAP!
Regardless, I would definitely wrestle him again! :)
sparkytbg is recommended by Lumber Jack G
Sparkytbg was my very first match! He made me feel very comfortable and put me at ease as soon as we met. We spoke about some moves and most importantly safety and then we started to wrestle, we must have wrestled for a little over an hour and apparently that is not bad for a newbie! He dominated almost every move he put on me (even though I have 40 lbs on him), but he taught me a great deal and was very patient. Probably, apart from some moves, the most important thing he taught me was how to tap! ... trust me, I did that a lot! He is a very nice guy, strong, polite and reliable! Good squeezer too! It was a crazy workout and super fun! Would meet up again when I come through Boston...
sparkytbg is recommended by Manu Wrestler
I had a really good match with this guy! He is really strong and experienced! He dominated the entire match I just could enjoy every hold. Hope we can meet again soon!
Thank you Sparkytbg for a match and a splendid lesson of wrestling holds! To anyone travelling to Boston area: this strong wrestler will provide you a very good workout and great match! He has got excellent techique and is very easygoing as a person. Do not miss Him when in the area. Highly recommended!

Sparky is a strong and skilled submission wrestler. I welcome a rematch. He is solid.
sparkytbg is recommended by eightpacabs1
Sparkytbg is as tough as they come. Lots of experience and super hot. He out wrestled me and worked my abs over. Plus he's a nice guy off the mats. I would make it a priority for guys to take him on. Just be sure to take your A game when you do !!
I had one of my toughest meets to date (also probably the best workout of the year so far) yesterday evening with H. Very quick on the mats with strength and stamina that matches his impressive skills. Had me tapping in a bunch of perfectly executed holds while smiling pretty much throughout the match. Also a pleasant guy to share a chat with afterwards. H is on a long European trip so make sure to catch him while you can but be sure to bring your A+ game.
Was a pleasure to meet him. Great guy with good physique and good skills.
It was a long bout and very random and changing of domination. It was great to fought him and to have a conversation with after. A rebout is for sure in order.

sparkytbg is a very technical and experienced wrestler and it's a lot of Fun with him on the mat. He fights very carefully and before you know it, you'll find yourself in a difficult position. on and beside the mat he's a very relaxed, friendly and laid back person with a good Sense of Humor. Looking forward to our next match.
funscrapseverino is recommended by sparkytbg
Funscrap is a very good wrestler. He is strong, tough and has some good skills. We only had one match, which was not enough to get a measure of him. On the mat he is all in for the win, off he is a very pleasant person. I look forward to rolling and spending time with him again.

Had a nice laidback roll with this guy.
Unfortunately not enough space for too much magic rolling, but guy knows the game! Meet him! :)

He is a real strong fighter with much experience and a Lot of Strength. If he is on Top its Nearly Impossible to stop him. Next time he comes to Germany I want a revenge. So challenge him if you want a real good fight
First of all, sparkytbg is extremly strong, especially for his stats. Second, his technique is great. Therefore, I was pretty happy to at least challenge him and give him pretty long, intense and swetty Submission matches. I really enjoyed it, meet him if you get the opportunity for it.
If it's possible, we will fight again for sure :)

It was a pleasure to wrestle with sparkytbg. He's a very tough and skilled fighter, and a strong opponent. Respect!
Wadzoli is a strong and capable submission fighter. He is bigger, stronger and a good chance a better grappler than me, yet I felt comfortable rolling with him. We had a good match on large wrestling mats. I look forward to rolling with him again.
Thank you so much for meeting me and giving me such an intense and fun workout. You have good fight instincts and great strength and resistance! You made me sweat and work for every position and hold, and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. I wish you the best matches and rematch you any time :)
Oh and than you for not mentioning the thing that we agreed not to mention here.

I had the chance to wrestle with sparkytbg during his trip in Paris.
Very nice guy and strong wrestler for a good sweaty struggle and a wrestling lesson!
Ready for a rematch during your next visit in France...
I had a pleasant and competitive match with sparkytbg, even if we were both at the end of a demanding day with quite a few bumps on the road :-D.
Off the matts a great guy. Any time again.
Sparkytbg is an amazing and highly skilled wrestler. As his other opponents say, he is very strong. He knows his submissions. He is a great host and incredibly fun to wrestle with. He is also a great teacher and makes one feel at ease–regardless of one's skill set. He will give you a workout and will make you tap. I highly recommend him.
sparkytbg is recommended by twisterman
Great guy... friendly, strong, skilled... made me tap over and over. If you're serious about wrestling this guy's the real deal!
sparkytbg is recommended by PinOrTapAtl
We wrestled for a couple hours with only one sub and a few takedowns. I worked my ass off for the one sub. Super close matches are always the best kind. Sparky has good skill, conditioning and doesn't let up - can't really ask for more in an opponent. I'm definitely looking forward to the rematch.
Awesome guy and outstanding wrestler.....and best of all, he will come to your level and teach you along the way. Had a great time both on and off mat. He is a class act for sure. Look forward to re match.

I had a great match with this wrestler. He is very tough and also very flexible. So when you try to Submit him you really need to work it for him to tap. I really like the fact that even though I was winning he still fought back. It will be fun next time to see what submissions I can get on him.

This wrestler knows some cunning tricks and techniques which may catch you by surprise. All the time he wrestles with a smile even if just getting you into a vicious hold. Hard to resist, but not impossible to beat. In perfect shape! Recommended!
