I dont suppose this guy needs any more recommendations. The only reason i am doing it is to reinforce all the other positive comments made about him.
He is very easy to make arrangements with-others please note-you know who you are. He is reliable, punctual and polite and has a great sense of humour.
On the mats he is a controlled, safe and sane opponent, who sometimes gives you a chance before he finishes you off, which he did with me. Believe me you wont have any problems if you have a meet with this guy.
Mark very kindly invited me to wrestling meet in the East End. We got to wrestle twice. Hes safe, sane and reliable. A great host too. Hes strong and determined on the mats. Despite the weight difference, we had a great give/take "set to"! Highly recommended. If you get an invitation to one of his meets, make sure you turn up. It's well worth it.
It was great to grapple this vastly experienced , larger wrestler of London. He was keen and had some weight advantage though no past formal training.He riled me partly as a strategy to get a another future match , we both strained and did well. I had him on his back or front more than he might like to think, a good workout , great to meet up again , well recommended , especially if you have submission or wrestling experience.
Had the great pleasure of locking up with this wrestler on his "world tour"! We had been chatting a long while and it felt like we had known each other for ages. We had a long exhausting give/take submission bout. He's tough and strong and has the distinct advantage of having done some good training at a London club in his past. Safe, sane and GREAT fun to wrestle! Don't underestimate his skill and strength. Its a great shame this guy is on the other side of the world....otherwise we would the regular fight buddies! 100% recommended!
Was a bit daunted about fighting Dadwrestle given his superior size and experience but he turned out to be a great opponent. He is fit and stong - and would be able to hold his own against wrestlers half his age. I managed to get some subs off him too which was a bonus to a tough, hard fought match. A really nice guy to have a chat with off the mats.
I had long wanted to face this wrestler on the mats! He didn't disappoint!! Great host; easy to fix date, time and location. Safe, sane and reliable. This only tells half the story. He's in great shape and is VERY strong.... watch out for his scissors. We wrestled hard for a few hours and submissions went either way. Extremely enjoyable match, which I think tested both of us. This is a wrestler not to be missed. Off the mats, good, interesting conversation. 100% gold star recommendation! Roll on Round 2!
An old friend from the past, which made the bout a double pleasure. An excellent afternoon with a very good space with mats. A good give and take session - totally safe and he adapted to the weight difference. An excellent host, and I had a great time both wrestling and catching up on things. Would not hesitate to give 100% recommendation. His long list of opponents reflect his skill and strength and his love for wrestling. I look forward to our next meet.
Well this was a real turn up for the books! I met this wrestlers years back. We have a great mutual friend in common. But we had not met since that first bout! Why, I ask!? This wrestler is strong, a great technician, totally safe and sane. What's more, he is one fun guy off the mats, intelligent, interested and humorous! We had a good give and take session, which was perfect considering the weight difference. This is one challenge not to miss. I really look forward to hitting the mats with him again SOON! 100% recommended!!
Hadn't met with Dadwrestle for a few years but once we were on the mats it was as good as always. He is strong and very agile for a big guy. Also very vey good at making it difficult to break his moves and putting yours on. Very friendly off the mats and a good sane host
After a good number of years it was great to meet up again with this feisty past opponent!! We used to meet up regularly some ten years back. We had a great give n take battle on my mats and agreed that it must not be ten years before we meet again!1
Top guy, sane and reliable. 100% recommended.
Enjoyed my time with Dadwrestle. Because of my injury earlier the week, we didn't wrestle as long as i had wanted. He is strong, experienced and is a very good host
with great mats in heart of London. Next time I wanna meet him in early part of my London trip and injury free. Totally recommended, do not miss him, if you have a chance to meet him.
I met up with this great wrestler at the end of his fairly gruelling trip to London! He had wrestled morning, noon and night for days and was injured, so we didnt get much of a match. BUT, this is one strong, determined tough wrestler! He loves the mats and brings energy, enthusiasm and power to a bout. I REALLY hope next time I get to meet him at the start!!! Totally reliable, safe and sane, this guy is a star to watch! He's only been wrestling a year...he's a natural! 100% recommended!!
Had a very enjoyable time with dadwrestle. He can be quite the beast on his excellent mats, which I suppose is ironic if you know his professional background. He's a totally reliable, pleasant, easy-going beast who makes the match fun for everyone, and he certainly knows how to use his size and strength against you if you're not paying attention. I was concerned about the size difference before meeting up, but he's controlled and cautious on the mats, putting my concerns to rest in the very first minute, so smaller guys shouldn't worry about taking him on. And as I mentioned above, he has an excellent space for wrestling with good mats – very very rare in central London!
Despite the considerable weight difference, this wrestler was content to meet me! It was easy to fix the date and time. He showed up, and I was not disappointed! His skill on the mats and his native strength made for an excellent session of give and take. He is a GREAT technician and dished out the punishment! Off the mats he is fun, a good conversationalist and great to be with. If you get a challenge or if you see hes in your neck of the woods...GO FOR IT! this is one hot wrestler!! 100% recommended! Here's to the next time!
Strong like a bull, skill like a wrestler, nice like a gentleman, fun like a comediant, and close like a friend . . .vwhat more can you expect? Only one thing he can be hard like a boss but with time i know i will . . .
What more can be said that has not already been written?! It was a real privilege (and a sound lesson in wrestling!) to meet this utterly impressive grappler! He is a real handful on the mats, built like a tank and with twice the power. He is safe and sane, wrestling to agreed levels of intensity. Off the mats he is fun and entertaining. Guys like this make the whole wrestling game worthwhile....even if I did receive the beating of my life! 5 STAR recommendation! Catch him when and where you can. You won't be disappointed!!
I've known this legend for many years He has a reputation for being a good and decent man; he is not. Rather, he is a mean, sadistic bully who wrestled and cheated me into a state of helpless misery, left me confused and disorientated, slipped a fiver into my trunks saying 'call a cab', then booted me out the door without my clothes. As I stumbled up the road, he shouted 'That was great. Don't leave it so long next time.' Wrestle him if you like that sort of thing.
Great wrestler. Strong, experienced, considerate, a mean heel, an excellent host with a kind heart.
I have known this wrestler for years! Its absolutely great to see him back on the mats after a rather sad break. Yes he is a jobber, but he's not a jobber that goes down without a fight!! He tough, strong and experienced. Looks great in his gear too. We have had some first rate bouts, with both of us getting out of the scrap just what we wanted! this is a class act guys...dont miss the chance of taking him on. Safe, sane and 100% recommended.
Met dadwrestle fit a match in London! Great skillful strong fighter! Knows how to headlock an opponent! Just enjoyed the evening and the company! Top man to fight and grab a few beers!
Had the chance to face this great strong wrestler again on his visit to London. He was in awesome shape as ever! Tough and intense on mats, but as ever, one of the best wrestling experiences out. Its a real privilege to step on to the mats with him....and I even got some taps out of him!! Roll on his next visit!!!
I certainly came up against one of the best when I stepped on to my mats with this wrestler!! Great physique, strong, and skilled, he delivered a tough but sane and safe match which was 100% enjoyable. Arrangements were made simply and easily. This guy is a must for those who are looking for a hard fought bout with an accomplished heavyweight. Pity there are not more like him in UK!! Off the mats, he is charming, intelligent and a fascinating conversationalist. All in all, one of the most challenging, expert wrestlers it has been my privilege to face! Roll on the next encounter!
As he said its been years, dad has lost none of his enthusiasm for the sport. He is a skilled strong and agile heavyweight who can hold his own against the best of them. As a person he is very funny, sociable guy who wants to wrestle everyone in the room. I was impressed by his fitness & stamina & asked him about his regime, it is unorthodox … ie. there is't one. But it certainly works (He was constantly on the mats, in fact possibly spent more time on them than anyone else present & there were some young guns at the meet)
He was first person who ever challenged me to a wrestling match & I still remember the excitement I felt that day 10 years ago when I received it.
If you don't like coming to the meets & your fed up with people wasting your time with the usual lame excuses & cancellations , or a foreign visitor with limited time, want a safe, sane, genuine submission bout with a heavyweight opponent c/w heel tendencies, give him a shout. He won't let you down.
Well this is one of the great Characters of British Wrestling, big strong skilled , a heel from central casting(But safe & sane)
He used to be called Mauler Paul which perfectly describes his wrestling style & I think he should still use that name ( its just so HIM!! LOL) When I first started out, he was one of the people who befriended & encouraged me & is one of the nicest & funniest people you can meet. He won't waste your time. you must wrestle him.
Its been YEARS since I was able to face up to this heavyweight on the mats! Chance came yesterday at a group meet in Barnet! Honours were even I reckon! BUT this guy has developed his skills since we last met up and is a real monster on the mats. Weve agreed we need another meet! SOONER THE BETTER!
No idea why I haven't done this before! Tanker is an old wrestling foe LOL! He looks great in gear and is tough in the ring or on the mats. He's thoroughly reliable,strong, safe and sane. he has lots of experience and is a fun guy to be around. WRESTLE HIM!
I have known this great, skilled wrestler for more years than either of us care to remember! It was therefore a great surprise to meet up with him again at a group meeting in Barnet yesterday! Hes as tough an opponent as ever! It was so good to get back on the mats with him again, and to watch him take on some of the younger, technical guys. This wrestler is one of the best! Safe, sane, reliable, not to be missed. 100% RECOMMENDATION!!
Had the real pleasure of meeting this young wrestler at a group meet in Barnet. We had chatted before, but this is in no way a rookie! There was a considerable weight difference between us, but this wrestler defended and attacked with ease and skill. I was only too disappointed that I only got one session with him. I REALLY look forward to facing him again soon for a longer session. Dont miss your chance of taking this guy on. He is well worth the effort!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I had the pleasure of meeting this big guy at a group meet in Barnet. We had a good three sessions on the mats. Hes a powerful defensive wrestler who it took all my strength and determination to keep under control!! Safe and sane, he was good to chat with off the mats. I just hope that I get the chance of a longer 1on1 tussle with him soon. Highly recommended!
Finally met "Dadwrestle" on his own place and we had some great matches. More aggressive than he appears outside the match, but as much as you need to enjoy a real fight with strength and pressure....but always safe. Strong enough, big guy with strong legs, very good when he attacks ( with full force), you must upgrade a little bit your defense my friend!!! It was a great pleasure meet him...and will do this again. Great hosting, Thank you my friend.
This meet up was a long time in planning, but on the day all the arrangements worked perfectly. And it was most certainly well worth the wait! This is one ACE wrestler! Fast, strong and skilled, with a muscled body to go with it. It was a delight wrestling him, I must say. Don't be fooled by the slim frame....hes dynamite on the mats. I enjoyed every moment of our match up and only hope that we can meet again SOON! This is one of the great wrestlers of the "Meetfighters" world...110% recommended!
The agreed rule was "no headshots" and we both took full advantage of the lack of other rules.
This is a tough man and he took every blow that I gave him (including one accidental punch to the back of his head).
I'd recommend Paul to anyone; especially if they are after a rough NHB match. He can give it out and take it.
May 23rd; Round two. Another bruising encounter with Paul. he must enjoy a pounding from these Geordie fists as he keeps coming back for more. And more. I had a great time and repeat that I'd recommend him to anyone for a NHB fight.
21/April/2015 My latest meet with Paul and another great match. Starting as soon as we got in his room we fought for a couple of hours with the same NHB rules. I'll admit to being sore afterwards but it was well worth it. He is one of the stars of this site and gets a 100% recommendation from me.
Just as good, if not better, than our other fights! This is a wrestler who loves to get down to it...as I do! He is muscled and strong, and packs a good punch. We were both pretty knackered by the end of the fight, as it should be. This is one of the guys from this site who I most enjoy taking on. Its an intense session but fun. Off the mats, the conversation flows! Roll on Round 4!!
ROUND 2: Have to admit, this was an even better session than the first AND I have to admit I was beaten this time by the better man! Long hard sweaty full on scrap! Some great knees to the gut from him to me too! 100% genuine guy! Wrestles to agreed rules, safe n sane. GREAT GUY all round, on and off mats!
This was one of the best fights I've had! This guy has a great physique; broad shouldered, well muscled, strong! We agreed rules and fought by them. He punches HARD!!! he turned up exactly when he said he would; safe, sane reliable. fun guy off mats, really tough, mean and intense on them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We plan to fight again SOON!
What a great guy and what a hard hour and then some our meet was.
Think I may have met the most genuine guy here as my first opponent
An absolute gent on and off the mat.
Certainly made me work for any and every tap.
Really great evening.
Sometimes its an absolute pleasure to write a recommendation! This is one of those times. I was totally outclassed by this skilled grappler, He is EVERYTHING that his profile says! Strong, skilled, fast and furious, he lives up to his name "the beast"! But he's safe and sane, sticking to agreed rules. Built like a miniature Sherman tank, hes a hard guy to move. What subs I did get, I had to achieve by subterfuge!! Off the mats, we had a great chat, and he's a fun, fascinating opponent. Dont miss your chance of meeting this fighter, but be reay for a proper, real battle! You wont regret it. This is a gold star, 100% recommendation!
24/10/2014: It's pretty intimidating taking on a guy who outweighs you by 32 lbs and has had 222 past opponents just here on Meetfighters alone! And yes, all that strength and experience certainly told, with him getting multiple submissions out of me from a wide arsenal of holds and techniques. But wrestling dadwrestle was a great, if punishing, experience - he's a true gentleman, welcoming and hospitable, and plays safe and respects limits, with an excellent spacious set up for wrestling. Don't let his age fool you! You'd never guess it and the man is still in great shape, with a lot of strength. Although he prefers competitive matches dadwrestle can certainly punish jobbers. Highly recommended and this jobber will be back for more.
18/04/2015: A rematch with dadwrestle, competitive this time, at a small group meet in Hackney. As strong as ever, he had me controlled and submitting most of the time, but he seemed almost paternally proud when he found that his protégé had developed something resembling a defence and could even (very occasionally) get the odd sub himself. Dadwrestle's a lovely man, thankfully far above such base things as cheating in tag matches. Wrestle him and learn....
Dont be mislead! The so called squashlad is fast learning good aggressive tactics! Hes strong and resilient. We had several good sessions today, making me definitely want more! Whats this about rule breaking? Who? Me?!! Great guy off the mats too.
This is one first rate jobber! He can certainly take his punishment! Easy to fix a meet; safe, sane and reliable. Tough on mats, he delivers exactly what his profile says. Intelligent and good conversation off the mats, too. For a "newbie", he's a natural, I reckon....born for the mats! I had a great, fun evening...just hope he comes back for more! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Good to see this star of the mats back around!! I have known this skilled, tough wrestler for years. Always reliable, safe and sane. Great imagination on the mats, he delivers every time we meet. He's addicted to the verbal before the meet, which is fun too. 100% recommendation!
Met Dadwrestle for first time recently. Hugely strong and fit fighter who knows exactly how to get some effective submissions. Applys a mean camel clutch and boston.
Friendly off the mat with great sense of humour. Will certainly want to meet again. Excellent mats and really handy central London location. Recommended!
This wrestler is returning to "the scene" after a time out. Its a good thing that he's back!! We had a false start with a cancellation on his part, but he came back with an apology and wanting to fix another date. This time he was early and raring to go! He strong and aggressive on the mats, but safe and sane. We had a good tussle; he left threatening a return. All I can say is "Bring it on!!" I am ready for anything you want to TRY to dish out!
Rematch today! I had forgotten just how strong this wrester is! Watch out for the choke!! Great long tough submission wrestle this morning. I can only say you would be mad to miss your chance of locking up with this guy!
Met Marcus today! Great wrestler, took on the bigger man and made me work VERY hard! Most enjoyable wrestle; good company off the mats, too. He has skill, stamina and strength...what more could you ask for? I hope the rematch is soon!
Round 2 with paul was no easier than the last one, keen as ever he gave me a great workout and still had more pearls of wisdom to share! And this guy had a session the night before which begs the question - where does he get this energy from?????
I can pluck theories out of the air but instead i insist anyone who has not tried him had better have a go and see for themselves hehe
Dunno what i can say that has not been said already! Paul is a brilliant man, great host and one wicked wrestler, i dunno where he gets his energy from!!!!!
Outclassed me in every way, he really does know how to use his weight and strength for maximum advantage, and can be very punishing if you let your guard slip for a second, but very well controlled and safe as well. He was more than willing to share constructive feedback on how i was doing, and showed me how i can do some things better.
He has a great attitude on and off the matts, and interesting in conversation as well as wrestling, very recomendable to any who have not had the privilege of wrestling him
Round 2! Despite the short time between our meets and having wrestled Dave King (!!!), this guy had picked up some good tricks along the road! We had a good 3 hours on the mats battling it out. Second meet better than the first, if that can be believed. This is one tough strong fun wrestler!!
Well, this guy might call himself a rookie, but he's a born wrestler! Easy to fix a time with, reliable and friendly. Once on the mats, he goes for it!! Amazingly strong upper body, especially his arms. He's a natural on the mats, quick to learn, and quick to apply what he learns. Great stamina, he keeps on coming back for more. This was one HIGHLY enjoyable encounter! Good intense, tough submission wrestling, safe and sane. I can't wait for Round 2! 100% recommendation!!!
Met Paul yesterday for a wrestle. An all round great bloke, well experienced and superb instructor. I'm buzzing from our match. Muscles aching that i never knew existed. He gave sound advice and good lessons on a variety of holds, great for a newbie like me. For all novice guys dadwrestle is very much your man, he's sane paced but by no means a soft instructor. Well recommended.
Paul was my second opponent in the world of wrestling - i only wish that i came to this sport alot earlier. Loving it and up for much more.
Would like to meet up again, back after more experience under my belt for a more evenly matched game - hopefully.
Where have all these gifted rookies been hiding!? At very short notice we fixed to wrestle today. Straightforward, simple arrangements. This guy has a fine physique, is strong and agile and uses his weight well. He is a natural on the mats, learning fast. Best of all, he keeps on coming back for more! Great fun in the banter, but out to get stuck in ! This was a highly enjoyable first meet. I really hope its the first of many mat battles. This is a 100% recommendation of a wrestler who before long will be a serious challenge!
Facing this huge man is an enormous pleasure. Big, strong, powerful, skilled. He can make you submit in just 3 seconds. Just be patient, resist the hold, and wait for a window of opportunity. Maybe you get to score a submission! Super cool. Great host. Awesome guy. 200% recommended.
Just be ready for this gold star wrestler!! He's strong; he's agile; he's skilled and quick. He backs all this up with a tight muscled body with killer arms! We grappled hard exchanging body punches, as agreed. He can take punishment but, beware, he can dish it out too. Despite the weight advantage I had, he made me work for every submission, and had me tapping! This is one opponent NOT TO BE MISSED! Off the mats he is fun and great company! Lets hope Round 2 isn't too long in coming. This wrestler is 100% recommended!
I have wrestled this mountain of a man several times over the years . He is deceptively quick on the mats and takes no prisoners but a great guy off the mats We have have a rematch.
Located minutes from Victoria Station dadwrestle is a required stop for anyone serious about grappling. Primarily into submission wrestling we started battling the moment I stepped through the door. With his large wrestling room with mma mats dadwrestle brings a wealth of wrestling info and experience. Highly recommended.
Round 2: Met again this amazing wrestler! Tried some pro stuff, which his skill made work for us. But watch out when he goes for a submission! Fast, tough and has you tapping in seconds! what a guy!
Met this veritable legend at my place today! He's all that he's cracked up to be. Tall, strong VERY skilled. Easy to fix time and date despite being ocean apart. Punctual! We had a a good 3 hour session. I hope we get to tangle again before too long. 100% recommendation!
Met Paul a coulple of times. Catch-weight match of course as I'm 154lbs soaking wet, and a bit of a squash but great sweaty fun with fascinating guy.
Don't know why it took so long to meet Paul. Don't let his name and age put you off, he is a gentleman on and off the mats and he has a mean headscissors. Highly recommended.
Round 2 today, second match of the day for me so I thought I'd be too tired but Paul made me feel at home and we started wrestling straight away as I walked through the door. More scissors on me and he can squeeze!
Good, tough session tonight! This wrestler has powerful thighs so watch out for his head scissors! Hr just keeps on coming back for more! Fun on and off the mats.
We finally got to hit the mats today! Great guy!! Eager to wrestle, strong legs put to good use in scissor holds. Safe, sane and reliable. Looks good in his gear, too. Highly recommended!! Hope round 2 is not too long in coming!!
We finally meet after a near miss in October, at the end very glad to make it up, feel safe wrestler with him despite the size, it is well balance between fun and intensity also with lot of techniques exchange in between, more important safe and sane and good manner. a good start for the year 2015, hope we get to meet again.
We fixed a morning wrestle easily! Just to say...the pics do not lie! This is one muscled, strong, lighter guy. He was determined on the mats. Great technique, that got him out of some difficult moments! It was a great fun to mix with this wrestler. We promised a rematch whenever it could be arranged. He is 100% recommended. Dont miss out on taking this grappler down to the mats!
January 2015: just wanted to note, after a great rematch, that this wrestler is really muscled up these days! As strong and determined as ever, he's one of the best around. Always safe and sane, but delivers EVERY time! Off mats, a good conversationalist, fun company!
What ever you do, dont miss the opportunity of wrestling this guy! Awesome body, strong, skilled and a thoroughly reliable person.
Big beefy wrestler, we had a nice long catchweight contest with subs on both sides, call it a draw dad? He knows how to finish his lads off
Have met up with this tough dynamite of a wrestler on a few occasions! Always a hot, intense bout! Yeah, subs on both sides, but I make him WORK! This wrestler is one of the best there is! Tough, skilled, a great fight. But is he good enough to take the "dad"?
It was a real privilege to fight dad wrestle, someone with so much experience. We had a great 2 hour fight which I thoroghly enjoyed.
Strong, energetic and loves his wrestling, it was a great fun time.
A very friendly, amusing and intelligent guy off the mats! I look forward to meeting you again in the near future for round 2!
Seldom am I tempted to write at the start of a recommendation "100% RECOMMENDED", but on this occasion its the only thing to write!! This wrestler is the tops. Good defensive wrestling style, with explosive moments when the submission hold just hits you! This guy is just one year into wrestling and I was made to look the rookie! I was totally outclassed! If you get the opportunity, meet him. Completely reliable, safe and sane with a high pain threshold. This is one wrestling star in the making!
I met Paul on my mats again yesterday he is a strong reliable and competitive man. He ensures both men enjoy the match looking forward to another roll in the new year
2014 l met Paul today he is still a big strong man.
We had a good hard battle on the mats and an enjoyable bout both ways
After another long gap, I hit the mats with Pete again yesterday! Hes been hitting the gym in the meantime!! Bulked up on the shoulders and arms nicely! Added to his strength too. Always a good host; great mats to wrestle on. We are promised a rematch!
Met up with pete again after a long break. He's a great host, good mats to wrestle on! He's a big, tough guy, who wrestles hard. looking forward to a New Year rematch!
Had a great 2 hour multiple submission wrestling match with dad wrestle at his flat in Lindon. Good back and forth wrestling with submissions about even both ways. Dont let him get on top of you. He's a big tough skilled wrestler with a lot of moves and a devastating punch. Nice large mat room in central London. Hospitable host and a great guy on and off the mats. Can't wait for a rematch on my next trip to London. Highly recommended.
This was a match up easily arranged. What I didnt realise was that I would be facing a proper powerhouse of a wrestler. We had two solid hours of full on submission wrestling. Hes strong, tough and skilled on the mats and delivers an intense, fun and sane bout. If you agree to body punching, watch out! He's one hell of a puncher! Safe, sane and reliable. One of the best wrestlers I have met on my mats in a long time. Roll on his next visit to London!! 100% recommendation!
Highly recommend, after a few years met dadwrestle again and had a hot sweaty wrestle adapting to each others level of skill. He's a great guy on and off the mats, competitive but always safe, sane and skilled. I look forward to meeting up again.
After a few years, had the pleasure of wrestling this south coast bear again today! Good solid build, just the right attitude on the mats. Fun, safe and sane with a good imagination. Highly recommended! I look forward now to seeing much more of this wrestler!
At pretty short notice from me, we agreed to meet up. This wrestler is a joy to take to the mats! Yes, he is a rookie, but he learns faster than any guy I have ever come across! By the end of our meet he was turning holds back on me we had practiced earlier on. He is an absolute natural as a submission wrestler, strong, tough, safe and sane. Off the mats, he has a great sense of humour and is a good conversationalist. This is a 100% recommendation....top quality!
Had another great match with dadwrestle on his mats. What a great wrestler he is: big, strong and skilled. Our matches are always challenging and intense! Definitely want to meet him again for Round 3!!
I met this guy during my stay in London. Strong and skillfull wrestler always safe and sane. Nice guy both on and off the mats. Can fully recommend him! Like to wrestle him again!
No longer a rookie! Instead a muscled, strong, very skilled grappler!! We hit my mats and I discovered I was up against a wrestler with a very high pain threshold and an amoury of moves.A joy to wrestle: safe, sane, up for an intense, tough fight. I dont think I have enjoyed a submission bout so much in a long time. This is one top class, trained wrestler, ready to take the bout to whatever level you want. 100% recommendation, 5 star rating! Although I have to admit, I came out in second place, I cant wait for Round 3!!!!
I met this wrestler yesterday in London. He's totally reliable time wise, and a great guy on and off the mats. As a wrestler he's strong, tough and tenacious. Don't underestimate this "rookie"; given some more experience he will be a real challenge! I look forward to a rematch SOON!
Met Paul on the mats in London for a while. This guy is strong, technical and has good stamina. Knows his stuff and is completely safe and sane. Match was ways to arrange and has a great sense of humour. Def would meet again, well recommended.
I met this amazing wrestler a year or so back when he was visiting London! This is a top quality wrestler. Strong, skilled and tough, he delivers a great match on the mats. Safe and sane, but a serious contender! Not to be missed! 100% recommendation!!
Dadwrestle is fun, intense, playful and aggressive... we have lots of fun, mixing submission wrestling with a lot of gutpunching :) He can take some and dish out plenty - if you want a exciting, safe beating he's the DADDY!
It is REALLY GREAT NEWS that this amazing guy is well on the road to recovery! We have met in the past to wrestle. Muscled, strong, perfect wrestler's attitude, safe and reliable. We met for a good gut punching session today, and his arms and chest are looking AWESOME and he's only just back at the gym!! Here's to a full recovery! 100% recommendation! This guy is the tops!
It was great meeting up with dadwrestle. Enjoyable wrestling, he has a good set of mats. Sane, challenging and he is happy to share his knowledge. Great host.
It was a pleasure to meet up with this wrestler! Easy to fix time and date; totally reliable! On the mats he was strong and aggressive, a good hard, solid wrestle. He claims to be a novice, but he has some tricks up his sleeve! Safe sane, fun on mats; intelligent and interesting off them. Roll on round 2!
Have to report this wrestler is on CRACKING form! He took three straight submissions off me yesterday in what proved to be a hell of a fight! This guy is a first class wrestler. If you get the chance, take him on!
Yeah decent bloke who gave a good challenge & worked up good sweat! Good person & great host......Round 2 will be on the cards for wrestle for the top! Highly recommended!
After a long time chatting regularly, we managed a quick meet today on my mats....and I wasn't disappointed! Reliable, safe and sane, this wrestler is stronger than he gives himself credit for. We worked up a good sweat and decided that this would be the first encounter! Others would definitely follow. I look forward to Round 2! Highly recommended!
Meet this guy few years back guy and safe would meet again
Paul is a great guy to wrestle. Good fun too. Never a dull moment. You won't be disappointed.
11.10.2014 New year new match! always happy to meet this great wrestler! *** 18.10.2013 thank for the match and the great fun we had. I am sure we will meet again next year
Had the privilege of wrestling Anton yesterday! One of the best opponents I have ever faced!! Strong, quick, skilled but also fun on the mats. Good, strong body which he uses to great effect. Tough on the mats, good, interesting and fun conversation off the mats. REALLY hope I get the chance to face him again SOON! Highest recommendation!!
Wrestler impressive and very big. It has been a good match !!! I hope to meet him again !!!
I met this strong Italian today at Barnet! He might be new on the scene but he is one strong, aggressive and technical wrestler! He is safe and sane, too. He is determined on the mats and delivers a great match up. I hope I get to wrestle him again. He clearly is a natural who is learning very fast. He will be one formidable opponent!
well what can i say when i asked if anyone was free to wrestle today bit short notice but hey i wasnt disappointed when i met the famous DADWRESTLE, ive known Dad for many years and this was our first meet, we had an introduction bout on the thursday evening then we wrestled on the mats on the mats on the friday, he was excellent he did not give me lee way he made me work for the match, and as he now knows i give it all i got , hes strong , knows his holds and makes you work , but hes fair to , it was a pleasure to grapple with him. and i interested in round two,
thankyou for your hospitality,
met today 11th october 2014 at barnet dad never disappoints hes strong and allows you to ensure you have a dam good wrestle, hes a lovely guy on and off the mats, always highly recommended and would def meet again
It has taken a LONG while to fix a date to meet to wrestle! We have had some misunderstandings on the way. BUT we met on the spur of the moment and had a terrific session!! Don't be fooled by Ben's build...HE'S STRONG! He has great resisting power, and fought off submission attempts by me with determination. He looks good in gear, and delivers 100% on the mats. A formidable wrestler. I am ready and eager for Round 2! Don't miss your chance of facing up to this guy....you will not be disappointed!
I had another excellent meet with Dadwrestle again last night. It was good to meet 1-2-1 this time and I enjoyed a thorough workout with him. I took a fair amount of punishment and will look forward to some more again soon!
Confirmed a meet with dadwrestle after a panicky audit on the same day. Very glad I managed to make it!
Can only parrot what others have said, very strong and technical and extremely punishing when in control. Tried my hardest and managed only two subs to his 99.
All round top bloke, wouldn't hesitate to recommend to the few people who haven't met him yet. Will certainly meet again!
Second Meet: Full 3 hours of wrestling! this guy is fast, strong, agile and a GREAT opponent! Dont miss out on a chance to meet him. You wont be disappointed!
An almost last minute arrangement. Easy to make, reliable, good communication. Despite a huge weight difference this tiger gave me a great 2 hour non-stop wrestle! He packs a punch (if agreed before!) and takes a good beating. He's tireless, too...keeps on coming back for more! He might claim to be a jobber. but on the submission mats hes no pushover! He got some sneaky subs off me. Safe, sane, tough and fun! 100% recommendation!!
Met this new guy on the wrestling scene yesterday! He was keen to meet; easy to fix a time and date; reliable. On mats he was tough and strong. watch out for his arms! This wrestler will be awesome once he has the moves under his belt! Highly recommended! Catch this rookie NOW!
I would like to recommend Dadwrestle (Mauler) because of his warm hospitality, but above all his skills on the mat. He does not mess about on the arena and anyone who fancies it should experience London's own AA. You wish to know more, keep an eye on my blog...
Mauler v Strangler! the first of a series of heavyweight clashes! This wrestler is a perfect build for an old style Brit Pro heavyweight! Strong, reliable, fun on and off the mats, hes not to be missed! He thought he would take me easily! Well, Strangler, time will tell! Now you know what you are facing, lets see how our next bout turns out, shall we?!
This guy is damn strong and made me work really really hard for any subs I got.
His height makes him hard to throw to the mats and while standing his reach can keep you at bay for ages. When you get in close contact you know you are wrestling a very strong technical wrestler.
Once you are on the ground he moves really well for a big guy.
No hesitation in recommending him to any body, and I already want a rematch to take some revenge for the aches and pains I currently have.
This match up has been a long time in coming, but hell was it worth waiting for! Here is one tough, strong, skilled, sane submission wrestler!!He's a tank of a guy, with all the same attributes! We wrestled a good two hours, with almost even honours. Good clean wrestling. Off the mats, he's intelligent and a good conversationalist. This is a gold star 100% recommendation. Roll on the rematch!
I met Dadwrestle at Rochdale for a good work out. This down to earth friendly guy was a pleasure to wrestle. He is strong and skilled and certainly no pushover. I had my work cut out and we both felt like we had done a few rounds by the end of it. I have no hesitation in recommending this experienced wrestler if you want a good work out with a nice guy.
Now this guy is something else! Great body, strong, keen, safe and sane. Totally reliable, easy to set date. On the mats he is AWESOME! One of the best match ups I have ever had. He claims to be a beginner, but he is a natural on the mats. Off the mats he is fun to chat with, interesting and interested. I hope this was the first of many encounters! 100%+ recommendation, 5 STAR WRESTLER!!
Real big dad he is .
Be aware of his big , strong biceps ! Although he is very reliable ; don`t unterratte them !
No dirty tricks IF you finally have managed to control him .
He can last his strenghts and air very long, so we did on his great, big wrestling floor with lots of space .
Searching for long pleasure fights ? , contact him and you can get `all` you want ,also recommended for small like me
He will let you on top for awhile as you deserve it by being active and have good wrestling intentions .
Now don't be fooled by this guy! He might be a lightweight but he is fast, strong and tough! Easy to fix a bout with, reliable safe and sane. But also imaginative on the mats, a fiery opponent. Was a real pleasure wrestling this guy. He comes with 100% recommendation!
Had a great meeting after alot of chatting. He definitely knows his stuff and had me locked up alot - very safe despite the difference in stats. Would meet again :)
After ages chatting on line we finally got to meet up at Barnet. Despite weight difference we had a great set to on the mats. Reliable, safe, sane and fun. Watch out for the choke! He might call himself "little" but he is determined and kept on coming back for more! Really enjoyed my time on mats with this wrestler. Give him a go...he's learning fast! Highly recommended!
Good impromptu wrestle. Sweaty grapple with a good mix of styles. Enjoyed it, cheers :)
Sometimes the last minute arrangements prove to be the best encounters! We fixed a late evening meet on my mats. This wrestler showed up as arranged. He's a tough, nicely aggressive wrestler, out to win! Great body, strong and determined. Fun on and off the mats. Don't miss your chance to face this wrestler...he is no easy pushover, I tell you! Here's to Round 2! 100% recommendation.
Real old school wrestler, hard as nails...plenty of give n take but a real gent on and off the mats. Highly recommended so don't miss out!....be seeing you again soon!!
Paul has been my second experience with wrestling.
He is a gentleman on and off the mats an intelligent person with whom it is interesting also to establish a relationship of respect and friendship.
I had the pleasure of meeting this wrestler when he came to London. Yes, he is a beginner, but he is no pushover by any means! He is thoroughly reliable, safe and sane. He is deceptively strong, with great arms. Watch out for the tests of strength moves!! As he gains experience on the mats he will be a tough opponent. Interesting conversation off the mats, too. 100% recommended. We are going to fight again!!
June 2014, three great choke submissions out of me!
Time to edit this! As predicted, this wrestler is fast gaining in skill and strength! He has a mean side headlock and choke! Great fun to wrestle. He's getting the subs more and more!
Make sure you fix a wrestle with this guy! Hes strong, agile and determined!! we have met on mats many times and its always been a great tussle. Reliable, safe and sane.
I had an excellent bout with dadwrestle at my place at short notice. He arrived on time and was very friendly. Although we were different weights, the bout was very satisfactory and long and sweaty, which is what I like. I well recommend you meet up if you are in London as he has a mat room of his own.
This was a last minute arrangement! Despite the weight difference we had a great bout. This wrestler has a superb physique, is strong and has excellent stamina! We raised a good sweat, and traded some good submissions. This guy comes with the highest recommendations, as a host and as an opponent! Don't miss the chance of sampling his mats if you are in the South West! 100% real thing!!
Have wrestled Dadwrestle several times and he is always a very tough man on the mats and we have had some great contests. Look forward to trying you out again soon!
Finally got a bout with dadwrestle at Barnet last weekend at a Grapevine meet (well actually 2 bouts).
I thoroughly enjoyed getting squashed by this big guy.
By prior agreement he gave my nips a few hard tweeks and also a few light gut punches which was all very enjoyable....as that is an area I wish to explore.
Perfectly safe and sane at all times I know without any doubt that he must have played it easy with me in respect that I am still a novice at all of this.
I look forward to meeting him again and hopefully some time for a longer private session...!
Definitely recommend and will update after next meet up with him.
Met this lightweight at a Barnet Grapevine meet! Hes really getting into the wrestling scene big time and was even prepared to step on to the mats with me despite a big weight difference! He a plucky wrestler, who likes to punch too if agreed. Happy to recommend him, he'll turn up and fight!
I'm always a bit unsure about wrestling guys where there is a weight difference - only from the point of view that if I get squashed it's not much fun for me or my opponent. This isn't true of dadwrestle who knows exactly how to work it so that both guys have a good match, which is what I had with him at Barnet. We traded gut punches in the bouts which I always enjoy and I'm looking forward to working him over harder(!) next time we meet.
I met this star wrestler at a Grapevine meet today at High Barnet. He certainly delivers on the mats! Despite a considerable weight difference he came in hard and fast. We mixed in a few gut punches too, which was good. I cannot recommend this wrestler too highly! Safe, sane, fun, imaginative, tough with great staying power. Don't miss the opportunity of facing this wrestler on the mats!!
Lovely guy, known him for years, is safe and sane with a light guy like me, but loves the big guys too! I would recommend him to anyone, a very genuine guy.
After what seems years, got to wrestle my old opponent Den yesterday at Grapevine. He's as tough as he ever was! Happily comes on to the mats with me, a MUCH bigger guy, and tries some sneaky tricks, often successfully!! Don't miss a chance of stepping on to the mats with this tough wrestler!
No idea why I have no written this before! This guy is one of my longest standing wrestling mates! He a fun guy, totally reliable. Dont be fooled by his weight and size. He's tough and skilled on the mats. Packs a punch too if you are into that. Proud to call him a friend.
03:05:14 Time for an up-date. My first match with Paul some 18 months ago was entirely unplanned but what a lucky day that turned out to be. Since then we have met on eight subsequent occasions (at group meets and his London home) and everyone one has been an enjoyable and challenging experience; I always come away having learnt a little bit more. Paul has a good wrestling facility and is a welcoming host but most importantly he's a very good (and highly experienced) wrestler who will give lesser opponents (like me) a break to make the match mutually enjoyable. 101% recommendation - of course.
15.12.12: I met Paul today courtesy of PETEUK who together with YELP31 (who made a valiant effort despite being indisposed) taught me a number of useful holds and escapes; I only hope I can remember them. We wrestled for over 2 hours and had a really good workout (almost every part of me aches). No one was counting but I think I got 3 submissions (he was probably trying to encourage me) using what I was taught; these were paid back tenfold! Paul is a strong, knowledgeable and an experienced wrestler who was an absolute gentleman on the mats matching himself to my level while firmly putting me in my place. He could easily have used his size to his advantage but sportingly gave me a chance and as a result we both had an enjoyable afternoon. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending DADWRESTLE; if you are lucky enough to get the chance to meet him take it - you’ll benefit from the experience.
I always enjoy the challenge of a lighter, faster guy! Britannicus is new to the wrestling world but hes no rookie!! He's strong, determined and picks up moves quickly. He keeps on coming back for more with great intensity. He's a gent on and off the mats, reliable, safe and sane. I have requested a rematch....don't miss the chance of taking him to the mats...SOON!
Finally met up with this guy tonight! Totally reliable, easy to fix date and time. He's one strong, tough guy!! claims to be a beginner, but is a natural. Great wrestler physique, fast a furious on the mats. We had a tough, hard fought match up. Watch out for this wrestler...he's well worth meeting and is a real challenge. 100% recommendation!
April 14 My third visit to the kindly gentleman near Victoria who I fondly remembered serving cucumber sandwiches and earl grey after a gentle sporting contest on my previous visit. Wake Up! Bastard beat me up again ! He denies i am a beginner but as his first wrestle was with Noah i think I will always be a beginner compared to him (I feel that comment may induce a sulk but am I sorry?). But it was as before a great wrestle and for those of you looking for a challenge and the chance to learn do accept a challenge and if you are scottish - its also free but you need to take your own sandwiches ha ha.
Met dadwrestle for the second time tonight. Having a bit of a sore back i nearly cancelled but having discussed my ailment dw agreed he would take it easy and so he did - easy on my back, just worked over my neck and arms, he seems to particularly like one of my arms and i take it as a compliment that he likes to look at as he nearly breaks it ha ha. Musn't make him sound cruel because he is a lovely guy and I did get the odd moments revenge, he was also careful with my back and despite his flagrant disregard for the rules of a fair fight he is a gent if a very naughty one. He is also a fine wrestler and good company so if he asks you, do give him a go, you will be glad you did.
If you read one thing on my pages of waffle otherwise known as my profile please please read and believe that you must not be put off by the age of dadwrestle. I have friends my age who look older but more importantly his years have been spent learning how to wrestle so if you are serious about having a good wrestle and learning something about wrestling then jump at the chance of meeting this man.
Met at his place this morning and not only was he charming, good company and kind of dishy (oops shallow slip) he also illustrated what someone who knows what they are doing, can do and was good enough to give me tips on how I could apply holds better I was struggling to get on him, now if that's not generous i don't know what is. So ignore the age, gain from his experience and bask in his warmth. Oh dear, gone all poetic, how about - highly recommended you will have great fun and learn loads - simples.
Don't be fooled by the innocent approach! Strong, determined wrestler here. Over the year or so he's been wrestling he has picked up LOTS of technique, especially strong defense. We had a good hard wrestle, and he got some ace submissions off me...
Well, he used to call himself "only a beginner"! He can't use that excuse any more! Our second meet showed that this wrestler is fast gaining in technique and is using his powerful arms to good use. His defense is good and he regularly turned my attack to his advantage. As ever, good fun off the mats, with fun chat and conversation.
Don't bother with all the claptrap on the profile about weight! This is one tall, well built, strong guy who wants to wrestle! He has amazing upper body strength....great arms, too. And don't fall for the "I'm only a beginner" line!! He may be a rookie time wise, but he is picking up skill by the minute. Reliable, fun, safe and sane! We had a long, tough wrestle and the rematch is promised. Good sense of humour off the mats, too. SO...make sure you challenge this wrestler soon!
Just joined the long line of past opponents of this skilled and experienced wrestler. It's taken quite some time to finally meet on the mats (he is also a great host) but it was worth it. Had a very challenging but very enjoyable submission match. There's nothing about this guy not to recommend... except perhaps his sneaky resumption of the match when you think you're getting up to set up the next bout... haha
After a long time chatting, we at last met today! He might have been lighter than me, but this wrestler is strong, determined and much more skilled than he admits! Totally reliable, safe and sane, BUT a great opponent!! I really enjoyed our match up. Here's hoping we lock up again SOON!
My high respect for this highly experienced wrestler before our meeting was more than justified. He is a quick, skilled, clever and strong opponent - and very difficult to control on the mat. I highly recommended him to all those that are looking for a perfect challenge - you will get the powerful package with him. It will be a great pleasure and honour for me to meet this rough'n'tough fighting gentleman and perfect host soon again.
I had the great pleasure of hosting a short but intense session with this awesome wrestler! Bullneck lives up to his name...one bull of a wrestler! He is very strong, fast and very skilled on the mats. He looks great in his gear and 100% delivers on the mats. Off the mats he is a highly intelligent, interesting and fun person!! I just hope that some day we manage to get longer on the mats together! I have no hesitation at all in recommending this wrestler! He packs a punch, too, if you want to box!
Met dadwrestle today, really nice friendly guy.
He's strong, more agile than he looks and a great wrestler who had a good counter defence for most of my moves and holds. Looking forward to wrestling with him again.
This wrestler is not to be missed! Good physique, totally reliable, sane and safe on mats, but tough, skilled wrestler with great stamina. I am looking forward to stepping on to mats with him again....soon!
After a long break and some missed opportunities we hit the mats again today! this is one little muscled tank of a wrestler! Strong, determined with lots of stamina. We had a good few hours sweating it out with submissions on both sides! Highly recommended!
Fighterman is new to the wrestling scene but is by NO MEANS a rookie! He's a skilled wrestler, fast, strong and fun on the mats. It was straightforward to fix a mat session with him and he was reliable, safe and sane. If you get a challenge from this guy....accept! You will have a great time on the mats!
Good guy, fun, hard, ruthless and a sizeable guy - yeah - I'll take him down again
A very accommodating host and a tough opponent, not to be underestimated.
What can I say? Again, the pics do not lie! This guy is built to wrestle; huge arms and shoulders, and power behind them. In a very busy schedule, he made time to stop off for a mat session before heading north. Sane, safe, reliable, good conversation off the mats. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! A great opponent!
Literally what can you say about Dadwrestle, which hasn't already been said. His a totally Gent, until you're on the mats and heed this warning DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HIM ! at your peril if you do. Totally safe & sane guy, who has forgotten more about wrestling then I'll ever know, a true expert. Great fun on and off the mats and can't wait for round 2 !
Had pleasure of taking this big lad down again! He's big and he's mean, but the "dad" still took him down!
Now, here's a strong guy! Dont let him tempt you into a finger-interlock...there's huge power in his shoulders and arms. Reliable, safe and sane. Yes, he's a novice wrestler, but he's up for a good tough encounter and is certainly no pushover. If you get the chance, take him to the mats. Roll on the rematch!
I had the privilege of wrestling this guy today!! The pictures do not lie. He had a powerful muscled frame and looks the perfect grappler. We had a great three way bout, plenty of hard, sweaty action. Sane, safe and reliable; a challenge on the mats; an interesting and sparky conversationalist off the mats. I could not have asked for a better way to spend an afternoon! Highly recommended actually sounds too tame!
It was my first time wrestling someone and Paul was ever so kind to take me on.
I was no match for his strength and skill. I'm so sure he went easy on me. He even took the time to share a few moves.
It was a good session, I enjoyed it so much I didn't realize we were wrestling for a few hours.
To sum it up, all I'll say is thank you Paul for being so kind and patient, look forward to round 2'
I am delighted to be able to write this wrestler's first recommendation! It took a time to fix a date, but he was totally reliable. Don't be fooled by his size. He is a tiger! He is determined on the mats, a natural wrestler. He's in good shape, strong, with stamina for a long, hard fight! We wrestled submission, and despite the weight and height difference he claimed some crafty subs! A most enjoyable, fun encounter. Roll on the next meet!
WOW! Every now and again you meet a REAL challenge! This guy is one such fighter! Arms and shoulders like a Sherman tank! He's strong, fast when he wants to be and skilled. This guy is straight but wants to wrestle! We fought hard for an hour or two and I was well and truly taught a lesson! Round 2 promised soon! this guy is not to be missed by those looking for a good, safe but competitive heavyweight challenge1 A delight to meet1
I had a wrestle with him in a hotel room. Big strong man, we had a good tussle and i could tell we were both enjoying it. He did try to wind me with some belly splashes but didnt, instead i enjoyed them. Very nice gentleman, really glad i met him and will meet him again soon hopefully
Talk about baptism of fire. I can hardly move. Dadwrestle is one hell of a wrestler. So strong, so fast and so inventive. Fantastic guy off the mats too. Very patient with my lack of knowledge. There will be a return bout.... oh yes.
Now I have to admit, this bruiser beat me tonight! He was on TOP FORM! Went in for the kill! Beware though, bushchub, REVENGE IS SWEET!
Now this is a real Brit Pro heavyweight! We met tonight for the first time. He's a rookie, but as strong as an ox! Great power in his upper body. Just wait until he's picked up some tricks....he will be even more of a handful! Really nice guy off the mats too!!
I couldn't have asked for a more gracious opponent for my very first match. He really went out of his was to ease my nerves and talked me through some of the basics, complimenting and correcting as necessary. I really enjoyed it and am very grateful for the help in taking the first step. He's a really nice guy, safe and sane, rookies be unafraid.
I met Will tonight! He's starting out on this game. He was strong and determined, and looked great in his gear. He got stuck in on the mats straight away, and was a quick learner. Safe, sane and reliable. Fun on and off the mats! Don't miss out on the opportunity of wrestling this rookie....he's good! Round 2 soon I hope!
When I arrived at Dadwrestle’s place, he was already fully kitted up and could hardly wait to have me on the mat. So it was the quickest start I ever had for a match. It was great fun to wrestle with this big and experienced guy and we both had our moments of dominating and submitting. Which was good and fun. Unfortunately this guy uses dirty tactics sometimes to get out of holds which is really a pity… NOT :-) No I adapted to his dirty tactic wrestle style which was fun and I was happy to learn a couple of new things from him. Interesting guy, great host and a very enthousiastic wrestler ! 100 % recommendation !
WOW! One thing this man cannot claim to be is a novice, even though he has been wrestling a short time!! We has a fast, furious and fun time on the mats. He is very strong, with a hard muscled body that he uses to great effect. Here is an opponent who truly loves wrestling, is committed to the sport and wants to carry on learning. Safe, sane, totally reliable. On the mats he's a tiger; off them he is an intelligent fun, interesting guy, with great conversation. It was a delight meeting and wrestling him. 100% recommended!!
Now here is a wrestler!! It has taken a long while to fix a meet, but it was well worth waiting for! Here is a skilled, trained wrestler, strong, agile and built. He insures that his opponent enjoys the bout, while stretching him to his limits. I got just a few subs off him, but you can guess who came out on top! This wrestler is a MUST for those looking for a tough, big solid opponent. Can't wait for the rematch!! Good company off the mats, too.
This guy is a good hard wrestler, nice guy off the mats and mean tough guy on them, really enjoyed our meets and would take any opportunity to meet him again, well worth the experience
Round 2, Nov 27 2013– Was intended to be a hard wrestle between the big man and the big fella, but due to a non-wrestling injury we were unable to have the wrestle we both wanted. And as I didn't want Dadwrestle to have a wasted journey, we had a light roll around, which still turned into a big struggle.
Round 3 for the decider bout, this time its in the ring, all out war.---
well what can i say about this bout. Last minute but well worth it, told me he would be in charge but like the big man says, this story isnt over,,,,,not for a long shot paul ha ha
see u next time
Round 2:sadly we couldn't fight with the intensity we wanted as this guy had a nasty injury to his leg from a work related incident. That said, it was a tough, hard battle! So the "decider" will come later! But we KNOW who will win!!
Met this wrestler today in a last minute arrangement. After a lot of chat on line, he delivered on the mats! Hes keen, keeps on coming back for more, and was safe and sane to grapple! I suspect the story isnt over!!!
Dadwrestle is a great man to wrestle against, he knows his moves and refuses to give.
I was a total novice when I met him, he taught me some moves, and is a great man on and off the mats
Met Dadwrestle for a hard sweaty match. With the weight difference I was the under dog but put up a hard fight. He is a kind individual off the mats but a raging bull on them. He definitely does not like his opponent getting the better of him and gets very defensive. That said it was a good match. I recommend him if in London. Will meet up next time I'm visiting.
After some time trying to be in in the same place at the same time, we made it work! We had a good, energetic wrestle on my mats. This wrestler is strong and keen, and gathering experience quickly. Fun on and off the mats!! Reliable and sane! It was a sweaty, intense match up which I hope will be repeated SOON!!
Met Dadwrestle while passing through London and he keeps to his word and on time. Had a full on NHB wrestle with the guy but totally respect limits and safe. He can take everything you can throw at him and he’s very aggressive on the mats but still in a safe way. Be careful if he gets on top of ya as he knows how to handle his weight well.. and can punch him and bruise him up but the guy still keeps comin’ at ya and he just won’t back down. If you want a wrestle or a full on rough NHB wrestle with limits respected, he’s the guy to tangle with. Have to make sure I have a rematch soon!
Not sure why I haven't written this recommendation before! Here's a big, solid, tough opponent who just loves to grapple. We have had some close fought sessions on the mats. Don't miss out on this guy, he's safe, sane and great fun. Good imagination too!
If you were in London and failed to wrestle this man, you have no idea what you have missed.
The name, "dadwrestle" says it all: he is a dad type who genuinely likes to wrestle. (Can it get any better ?!...) His enthusiasm on the mats is overwhelming, with aggression to match it !!! Indeed, he is aggressive, but in an immensely pleasant and exciting way. He is NOT disrespectful by any means. The fact that he never backs up from challenges, and gets quite creative when he wrestles, is a part of the fun game. Furthermore, there is a lot more to him than just wrestling. He is a true classy English Gentleman, with playful and intelligent wit, which tremendously enhances not only the wrestling encounter, but also the whole experience of meeting him and getting to know him. If you were lucky enough to experience and appreciate this side of his character, you might understand why he is this popular, as evident from all the raving reviews he has received. Must I be redundant and emphasize that regardless your skill level, age, and size, you should not miss the opportunity to meet "dadwrestle" on the mats (and perhaps off the mats), by any means !!!
I first noticed this guy's pics! Then we got chatting. Then a trip to UK was planned, and it all rolled out from there. But the pics only told half the story! Here is a pocket tank of a wrestler, well built, solid, muscled. He's skilled, fast and determined on the mats, eager to teach and coach and share his expertise. He is 100% reliable, safe and sane. Off the mats he is sociable and full of knowledge. He has wide interests, and loves to chat and get to know his opponent.
Watch out, this is one HOT wrestler! Accept his challenge when it comes!
dadwrestle is a great guy, big strong and knows the moves. We have had two fights already and I'm looking forward to the third. Great host, nice friendly guy.
Round 2! He's back on the mats as tough and strong as ever! next time he tells me he's going to take me down! GREAT GUY! Don't miss your chance to wrestle him!
Big guy with a great build! Tough, strong and energetic. It's taken us a long time to lock up on the mats, but was well worth waiting for. Sane, safe and reliable. Roll on Round2!!
I was a bit apprehensive due to the size difference. But I needn't have worried. Paul is a fun wrestle, and knows how to pace it at your level. A formidable opponent, and a great guy too.
I always enjoy wrestling Paul as he is strong and determined and good fun off the mat. Great at group meets as he makes sure everyone gets on the mat and has a good time. See you soon.
For Jobbers looking for a WOS style heel this is your man. Safe sane and reliable.
Dadwrestle is an excellent wrestler - a beast on the mats but a gentleman off mats. Don't think he was expecting my armbar which made him
Submission even sweeter. Highly recommended.
We wrestled for the first time yesterday after a long time chatting. I was not disappointed! Strong, determined with a great attitude on the mats. He claims he hasn't wrestled much, but he has some good moves in his arsenal!! Reliable, safe and sane. I hope and trust that this was the first of a series of match ups!
18 July 13. Met Paul at his place tonight and wasn't sure what to expect. Well i was pleasantly surprised, not only is he a great wrestler and tough but he made me work hard for every sub. Now for those guys that don't want to wrestle older guys then your missing out. If i can still wrestle like Paul at when I am 61 then i will be a happy man. Was a great evening both wrestling and chatting. Nice one Paul, thank you
Its quite hard to find the superlatives to use to describe this wrestler! We have waited quite some time before we have been able to fix a meet. Mark was reliable, safe and sane. But that's only the start. He is skilled, strong and great fun to wrestle. He adjusts to your level to make the bout enjoyable for both. He looks great in gear, and the pics do not lie! he has a hard, muscled wrestlers physique. All in all one of the best encounters I have ever had!! Thank you! Good conversation, too, after the bout.
Met dadwrestle yesterday after what seemed to be forever chatting, and I am glad to say the trip over was well worth it, he is an awesome guy, who certainly knew his stuff. He is totally safe and sane and respects limits. As dadwrestle has already mentioned is was a sweat soaked afternoon and I was totally puffed out, but it was a totally great experience and I cannot recommend him highly enough! Lookingt forward to our next match!
Had a great bout with dadwrestle, was a bit wary given stat difference but had an awesome first match of the day, this guy is big, strong and lethal when he gets you on the ground, managed to hold my own and were surprisingly evenly matched with subs both ways. A sound guy off the mats, total gentleman, but a beast on them.....Deffo gonna take you up on the invite down for round two mate.....cheers :-)
Every now and again you meet a new wrestler who is a rare treat to fight...THIS GUY IS ONE OF THOSE! Fast, strong, determined on the mats, watch out for his killer leg scissors. Off the mats, a fun person to chat with, on the mats one hell of a wrestler! I look forward to facing him again SOON!
Had a great time wrestling with this guy at the Nottingham meet, big strong guy who was happy to adapt to a smaller less experienced wrestle. Thanks
Wow, great to meet a new wrestler with such skill, determination and energy! We meet for the first time at a Grapevine meet. Despite the weight difference he readily agreed to wrestle. He's strong, fun to fight, great staying power and a good technician. I had my work cut out! GREAT PLEASURE to wrestle him....hope we face up on the mats again SOON!
Great wrestle with some nice body punches and bearhugs, respectful of limits hope to wrestle him again.
No idea why I haven't written a recommendation for this wrestler before! We fought regularly when I lived in the north. He's a strong, reliable tough opponent! Wrestles with intensity which is very exciting!! Great guy on and off the mats. Cant wait to lock up again!!
This guy is hot, very strong, and a great personality. look forward to getting him to submit and take orders from me
This guy may be new to the wrestling scene but he is strong and determined! He's out to learn fast!! He's totally reliable, safe and sane, good fun on and off the mats. Watch out for the legs...powerful! challenge this wrestler and you wont be disappointed.
A great guy off the mats, and a demon on them!! Safe and sane and nice and competitive - and he knows his stuff! A strong guy who looks good in trunks - I did manage to get a couple of subs though...!! A perfect host too. I look forward to the next time...!!
Met "Dad Wrestle" on his mats for a Friday rumble. Last time we meet he equalised and the score was even. Arrived Friday to gain the advantage and could'nt lets his well experience wrestler beat me again. I was out to prove I wasn't a push over. After an hours powerful, sweaty and intents wrestle, and after plenty of submission later. My job was done and I was victor. But had to continuing attack and defend myself from this experience man.
"Dad wrestle" is a guaranteed conpetative wrestle. Never under estimate this wrestler. If you do he will use it to his advantage and win the match.
Will meet again in the future for sure, and encourage you to take on and experience the skill and ability "Dad wrestle"!!!
Rematch was GREAT!! We met on my mats yesterday.This guy gets tougher and tougher to handle on mats! We had a long, sweaty submission wrestle which was pretty even! A pleasure to wrestle.
After a long period trying to plan a meet we finally locked up yesterday afternoon, and it was WORTH WAITING FOR! This guy is tough, strong, reliable and skilled. He delivered a good even wrestle to multiple submission. The next meet cannot come soon enough! Don't miss the chance of taking this guy to the mats!
I have wrestled with dadwrestle a number of times and all of them have been good fun with technical skills and ability used rather than his sheer size. He respects limits and adapts so that even small guys like can have good have fun without the risk of injury. I look forward to another session with him soon.
REALLY HAPPY TO MEET HIM ANOTHER TIMES AFTER 2 YEARS. HE IS REALLY STRONG VERY IMPOSSIBLE TO BEAT I ENJOY MY TIME AND HOPE TO REPEAT SOON THE MATCH ON THE MATS.
After many years of chatting we hit the mats (again) last night! It was a privilege to wrestle this guy! He has a great physique, is skilled, fast, strong safe and sane. It was a tough encounter which I really enjoed. I look forward to the next time. hoping that it isnt so long a wait! Accept the challenge if offered!
Outstanding wrestler, solid, strong, easy going. We just went right to it and had a blast. Matches like this are why I keep coming back for more.
After years of chatting, since Paul comes from the other side of The Pond, we finally met at Wrestlefest NYC and had a blast wrestling a hot slow pace submission match. Paul is worth the effort to meet him as he is a great man to have FUN. Yes I will be looking forward to the REMATCH!
We fixed to meet in NYC during Wrestlefest. Didn't know what to expect. But this is one AWESOME wrestler!! Strong, skilled with a great physique, his one tough opponent! Handsome guy, too. Next time, we fight on mats! Guys, if this wrestler challenges you, say YES!
Met this lovely big guy a few years back - a total mismatch but it worked well - my 'tuff and determined little guy with a chip on his shoulder' attitude seemed to do the trick. Our joint-enthusiasm for wrestling and aggression made it a hot meet! Looking forward to a rematch!
Great to be able to wrestle these guys at a Grapevine meet. Dadwrestle was always going to be a tough opponent, but he gave me a good workout. Friendly and safe, and would feel comfortable in another match.
Had been chatting for a long time about a meet, and at last we have made it! Good heel v jobber tussle!! Watch out for his strong legs, guys! We got up a good sweat, and this definitely was Round 1 of many more! Totally reliable time wise, good company on and off the mats.
Can't believe there isn't a recommendation from me on here! Have wrestled this little pitbull over the years and EVERY fight has been GREAT! He's tough and verbal before the meet; and he delivers 100% on the day. Reliable safe and sane, but a real handful! Got well and truly beaten this last time, but a REMATCH is promised!! This guy is a star! Don't miss out on taking him to mats.
Had the pleasure of meeting Paul yesterday. He's a great guy, powerful, strong, very skilled wrestler but totally safe and sane - got some amazing holds which will really test you but also respects limits. He's also a really genuinely nice guy who loves his wrestling and enjoys having fun as the big bad heel! Highly recommended and hope for a rematch!
REALLY enjoyed locking up with this great heavyweight on his mats! We had a perfect Brir Pro session, he looks good in the gear and delivers on the mats. Definitely safe and sane, and the perfect host! Rematch will follow soon, I hope!! Dont miss out on this Midlands rassler!
Paul is a great guy thanks to his encouragement I finally stepped into the a ring for the first time ever! Met him at the Jan '13 Grapevine event we had two matches and they were both great.Looking forward to another one!
If you just happen to be in the north of England make sure you take this guy on! He's quiet off the mats but tough, strong and determined on them. He took my by surprise just how resistant he was in a hold. Great body which he uses to effect! I trust that we shall face each other again SOON !!
dadwrestler was all I had hoped for and more. An excellent, tough heel, yet versatile, imaginative and attuned to his opponent's strength, size and wrestling skills. A rematch in the new year is a given.
After some nervousness on his part about weight difference, I met this great guy to wrestle. He is fast and strong, good fun on the mats. He is reliable safe and sane. By no means a rookie or a jobber!! Excellent company off the mats too. Intelligent, bright and personable. I hope we will fight again soon! Highly recommended!
During a recent holiday, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Dadwrestle in London. This man is tops. He has a great mat space, is very hospitable, and is a great wrestler with remarkable strength to boot. Seek him out if you are travelling to London, you won't be disappointed.
Another great lighter opponent! "Animal" lives up to his name! Strong, great muscled body, keen and intense on the mats. But he's safe and sane, wrestling to agreed rules. Turned up on time, good company off mats. This wrestler is highly recommended! Rematch planned.
Met dadwrestle and had an absolute blast on his mats.
Time always seems to fly by when your having a good meet.
Was a bit of a weight advantage, but he used his techniques and skill to make this one of my best matches to date.
Very skillfull wrestler and made me feel very welcome as soon as I arrived.
Managed quite a few moves on him and was a great give n take match for part of it.
Safe and sane, top guy both on and off the mats and another meet is definately on the cards.
Challenge him and meet him.
You will not be disappointed.
Here's another GREAT discovery in the lighter guys! Had one hell of a mat session with this wrestler on my mats. He's keen, fast and furious. Just what you need in a perfect bout! Fun on and off the mats. Reliable and sane. We are going to face up again SOON I hope. Don't miss your chance of taking this Essex boy to the mats....you won't be disappointed!!
dadwrestle is a complete nice guy strong skillfull who uses his tecnique rather than his wieght and was a pleasure too wrestle
Now this might have been a catchweight competitive wrestle, but it proved one of the best grapples I have ever had!! Here's a completely reliable guy, who turns up on time. He's VERY skilled on mats, as fast as lightning, and a first class opponent. hes strong, with good stamina, and is fun on and off the mats. Don't be fooled by his size...this is one awesome wrestler! I look forwrd to many more sessions on the mats!
Had a great wrestle with dadwrestle really nice guy, very strong and fit. It was a pleasure to meet him and I do hope we meet again.
Met this great guy today for the first time! I was not disappointed! He looks great in gear, tough, strong and fit and up for a good hard wrestle. He claims to be a novice, but dont be fooled, he's a natural. There really has to be a rematch...SOON!
wrestled dadwrestle a few time and I hope to again. He is tough, strong aggressive and gives a good match. He can give as good as he can take. He is safe, very reliable and a nice guy .
Had the wonderful pleasure of locking up with this beefy, strong, powerful English bloke for a great wrestling match at the north end of London. He has a massive beefy belly and loves trading rough gut punches. He is very skilled and tough on the mat too. He took care of booking a private wrestling studio with mats which had a shower room. Don't get fooled by his gentleman demeanor, he's a rough n tough grappler who will test your skills. Look forward to more matches in the future buddy!
Had the chance to lock up with this guy while he was in London. He may be short, but he's a pocket tank!! Great solid build, well muscled and strong. He's a skilled wrestler and takes some handling on the ground. He uses his weight well. Perfect opponent, considerate and fun. Be warned, he packs a punch if you agree to gut punching! I can't wait for the return bout!
Met paul on two previous occasions when i was just a rookie he took me down a peg or two with his strength and skill both very enjoyable matches. Fast forward 2 years to aug 2012 for a rematch at barnet and had a battle and half. Hard intense wrestle with plenty of subs on both sides paul is a gentleman skilled and strong .great fella on and off the mats
Here's a tough star to take on! Safe, sane, eager to wrestle. He has great stamina, and don't underestimate him....rookie he may be , but the Pitbull is learning fast!! REMATCH August 2012! WOW the tiger has emerged! Great wrestling session, tough and intense. Good submissions on both sides. A perfect bout!
great fun wrestling this bigger guy, makes you think harder on tacticle moves!...really friendly guy great to talk to, and have a fun day with on or off the mats.. ;-))))
Well if u thought this guy was too old or big - forget it lol
He's strong experienced knows his holds and is a very decent challenge. Hard aggressive, fun and always safe. Will I wrestle him again? U bet and u should too. Great banter too
The rematch has happened! This guy is greatly improved skill wise and is now one of the toughest guys around I reckon. Have to admit, I got well and truly beaten!!
Now here's a wrestler with a great build, strong, skilled and a challenging opponent! Had heard lots about him before we met, and he lived up to and surpassed all expectations. Thoroughly reliable, fun on and off mats, safe and sane, but a tough, determined wrestler. One of the best fights I've had for a long time!! Roll on the rematch!
paul is a good,strong wrestler.very entertainig,on the mats,and in the chat rooms. He's safe ,reliable, he's a pleasure to meet.he's become a wise old friend. HIGHLY RECOMEND
Wrestled against Paul today and had a hot sweaty bout. Strong and technical, he inflicted pain on me (safe and sane of course). He was reliable and genuine and needless to add, great sense of humour. I totally recommend him. Great match!
I wrestled this guy last weekend, and what a great fight we had. He is strong, trim, and determined! He has great stamina, and keeps on coming back. Great fun on and off the mats, totally reliable, safe and sane. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Roll on the rematch!
A true gentleman - who can inflict pain on very inch of your body. Fortunately, he tailors his onslaughts to the abilities of his opponents, so whatever your weight or skill level you will have a good hard wrestle and think you have done well.
Every now and then the mask would slip and the true horror of what could befall me if I got too cocky became apparent. Respect due.
I relish the prospect of the next meeting. Thanks for a great wrestling experience.
GREAT wrestle last night! This guy is quick, strong, amazing stamina and tough!! Despite the weight difference the fight was even, showing off his skill in handling a bigger opponent. 100% reliable, sane and safe. Not to be missed. Here's hoping the rematch is soon!
We had a really good challenging matches. Good conversation too! Heartily recommend this interesting wrestler!
Paul is a great guy to wrestle. Really enjoyed our match and looking forward to the next one. Always great when David beats Goliath ;-)
I've had the pleasure of wrestling him many times. Safe sane considerate funny reliable. Oh did I say he's a good grappler ? Knows what he's doing and will push you as hard as you want / need. Ok, sometimes a little harder. A gent off the mats, a fighter on them. Nuff said.
A really great guy to meet up with and DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE this guy on the mats. He's safe, sane and a very good technical submission wrestler - happy to lock up with Paul again anytime!
Dadwrestle is a lot bigger than me but he's great fun to fight! We had a long, intense match and he's up for either being a heel or more competitive stuff.
I have known and wrestled Paul for many years and he's a good wrestler and excellent company.
I never miss a chance of stepping on to the mats with Ed! He's safe, sane and thoroughly reliable. He's a skilled wrestler, strong and tough. I always come away from a bout having learned something, but also knowing I've had a great time! Don't miss the chance of taking him on.
Paul is a gentleman, and it was nice to have a competitive bout with a bigger man. Strong and tenacious on the mat with bags of endurance, he will give you a good workout! He is warm and charming off the mat too - looking forwards to the next round.
I met Stew today, after reading his other recommendations! He outshone them all! Reliable, safe and sane. Very skilled, strong wrestler, willing to share his expertise on mats. Off the mats, a fun guy with interesting conversation. I look forward to our next match up, even if I get thoroughly beaten again!
Had a GREAT scrap with Paul recently! He's tough, strong, physical and sane on the mats and a true gent off them. He's a really nice fella, who can wrestle as rough as you want! He's a sly dog, too, with loads of mean tricks - never turn your back on him for a second! Totally recommended - drop him a challenge - you won't regret it!
Well, if you want to meet the best, don't turn down a challenge from "The Lad"! We wrestled for a good long time. He delivers a tough, intense submission fight, whilst being perfectly safe and sane. Made me work damn hard, too. Perfect host, and a gent off the mats (if occasionally not a gent on mats!!) Roll on the rematch!!
Paul is a great wrestler...strong, skillful and a gentleman on and off the mats. Can´t wait to meet him again.
Paul is strong, fun and versatile. Great with countermoves.
Looking forward to our rematch.
Great guy on off mats strong guy need watch out for headlock Great host will meet again
Met Paul at Pippa's - had a good friendly grapple. Definatley skilled and has strength plus a nice guy as well, look forward to another grapple...
very nice guy !! we must fight again even if i am lighter
enjoy a lot our match !! may be harder next time
very strong and good wrestler !!
Paul is a great guy to wrestle, especially if like me you are a lightweight, he can easly match his style to suit, which to me makes him one of the best guys to go against weather your a novice/experianced or lightweight/heavyweight, give him a go you wont be dissapointed.
