DazzFighter is recommended by Fistfitem2m
Met Daz a while back. Very friendly guy and he does turn up for the meeting and the match. Safe and sane and respects limits. Was a fun match and wish we had time for more.
Fistfitem2m is recommended by DazzFighter
I met up with Fistfitem2m whilst we were both in Dubai. We had been communicating regularly throughout my trip. We scheduled our meet and confirmed the morning of the meet.We both had a really good match. I wish I had brought my gloves with me so that we could have exchanged a few punches. This guy is friendly, reliable and very sociable and took me to lunch at one of his favourite restaurants to have lunch. I definitely recommend this guy for a match and hope our paths will cross again for a re-match.
DazzFighter is recommended by Ben skull stephens
I met this excellent fighter when I lived in brighton last summer 2015, a good strong enthusiastic wrestler, one I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, he goes on my recommendations as pride of place because hes GREAT, and id wrestle again at the chance or opportunity , miss out and youl miss a dam good wrestle
Ben skull stephens is recommended by DazzFighter
I met Ben in summer 2015 and I had a really good wrestling match. He is a good wrestler to match with but I think I was totally dominated but I gave it my all. Ben is competitive on the mat but a good friend off the mat. Definitely recommended and hope to re-match with him some day when life settles down.
DazzFighter is recommended by Alan2005sg
Dazz is a nice guy. Our match was short but enjoyable. I felt very bad about accidentally dislocated his joint & he was strong enough to push it back.
Overall a good experience. Don't hesitate to meet him when he visit your country or city
Alan2005sg is recommended by DazzFighter
I met Alan on 21/05/2016 he is a strong guy and has a great physique. The meet was short but from the outset I think we were evenly matched. If the match had gone on much longer i think I would have eventually succumbed to a few more submissions due to his strength and physique. But despite the shortness of the match I really enjoyed meeting up with Alan. I hope when passing through Singapore again to meet up with Alan for another round . I have no hesitation in recommending Alan he is a true gentleman and friend.
mewrestle is recommended by DazzFighter
I met up with MeWrestle this afternoon. It was a short match due to the heat as it rose to 42 degrees outside. From what I could tell from the short match we had is he is a strong wrestler and defends well. He has strong legs as he body scissor me, which gave me a few problemsin getting out of the move. MeWrestle is a friendly guy and likes his wrestling but not in the midday heat as it was too hot to wrestle. Hope that our paths will cross again so that we can have a re-match and hope Dubai is a little more on the cool side..
DazzFighter is recommended by saudiwrestler
I am regrit that i did not wrestle him in the first time when we met. He is good wrestler Stronger than he looks. Dazz is a great guy plus wrestler. My time was short because i had family iusse but I enjoyed my match and hanging out with him. I hope to meet him again and re match with him.
saudiwrestler is recommended by DazzFighter
We have been friends for a while but this was our first wrestling meet. Aziz is a real strong wrestler and me being a lightweight wrestler struggled to gain control at times. But I was determined not to give in to easily and to keep going. Aziz knows his moves and has strong thighs and killer legs. It was a really good match and I really enjoyed the challenges of the match. I definitely recommend looking this guy up when you are wrestling in Dubai. Aziz is a very friendly guy, safe and sane, has a great smile and a good sense of humour. I definitely love to have a return match some day and hope our paths cross again either in Dubai or London.
DazzFighter is recommended by Sean226
Dazzfighter is a really nice guy and is stronger than he looks. Had a great but short wrestle with him. Looking forward to a rematch.
Sean226 is recommended by DazzFighter
I had a short match this evening with Sean226. He is a strong opponent and knew how to carefully get you into holds but I was determined to get one sub out of him. It a shame the match was so short as I could have gone on for a bit longer. But I hope to meet up with Sean again some day when I return to Sydney. I highly recommend this guy he know his moves so be aware of his legs.
DazzFighter is recommended by Dfire
I met Dazz at his hotel room which he had totally demolished to get the mattresses on the floor to create a nice big wrestling space.
We had a great long sweaty grapple ( with punches and fore-arms, which he gives and takes well ). Really enjoyed the whole afternoon.
Dazz is a great lad, I helped him re-build his hotel room haha and later we went out ( knackered ) for a lovely dinner in lovely Glasgow.
Would 100% meet again.
Dfire is recommended by DazzFighter
I met Dfire in Glasgow 23/01/2016 . He is a strong wrestler and used his weight advantage to full effect. I was able to get the odd sub here and there but most of the time it was hard work to get Dfire to submit. I enjoyed the match very much, it was a good safe competitive match and hope I can have a rematch when I return to Scotland. Dfire is a very friendly guy on and off the mats.
DazzFighter is recommended by looney45
What a great guy Dazz is, great company and great to wrestle. It was a great back and forth bout and apparently I taught him a new hold without realising it (which he subsequently made me tap to!) Respectful of limits and stronger than he may give himself credit for!
Met Dazz again today (23/1) and saw how much stronger he is and tougher to wrestle with. Can't wait to wrestle with him on his next trip to Glasgow!
looney45 is recommended by DazzFighter
I had a great back and forth wrestle match with Looney45. He has a busy work schedule so was very lucky in meeting him. He has great experience and is respectful to your limits. He taught me a new move today, normally people don't get a chance as I normally worm myself out of it but Looney45 is quick so he caught me off guard. But was glad to return the favor. He is great company and hope to have another match with him soon.
I met up with Looney 23/1/2016 as soon as we were ready on the mat he had determination written all over his face. It was definitely a re-match similar to last time with many submissions. I really enjoy wrestling Looney due to the fact we are similar in weight. And we both don't give in to easily. Look forward to having many more matches. Well recommended.
DazzFighter is recommended by ScotLaird1
Was thrilled to find Dazz was in my town (Glasgow) and looking for matches.
I agree with previous recommendations regarding this pocket atom. He is fast and strong, with a nice natural wrestler's physique. If you submit him he recovers quickly, then goes straight back on the offensive, seeming twice as determined than before, -a true 'little tiger'. A quiet spoken man, genuine and kind and good company off the mats. Dazz is well worth meeting
ScotLaird1 is recommended by DazzFighter
I met Rob whilst I was hosting matches in Glasgow. He is an experienced wrestler of similar weight and physique. I tried my best to get Rob to submit but he a hard guy to pin down. Punches real well and hard, which is what I like. He is quick and agile and gives good advice to lesser experienced opponents. He too is a quiet spoken man, genuine and good company off the mats. Definitely up for a re-match and well recommended.
THEIRONMAN is recommended by DazzFighter
I finally met up with TheIronMan 20/01/2016. He is a strong well built guy, which kind of made me nervous at the beginning of the match.
He is a real cool sexy guy, great attitude and came down to my level of wrestling, He showed off his vast experience and skills during the match.
As the match progressed he told me a few things I was doing wrong, which will help me in future matches.
I think if the wrestling had been a much more full on match his size, power and technical ability would definitely have caused me a few challenges. As it was we both got a few subs on each other and I had a really fantastic time.
Definitely recommend this guy if you want a good wrestle.
Hope I can meet up with TheIronMan again and have a few more re-matches and hope next time it be in a mat room where there is more space.
Lederringer is recommended by DazzFighter
I met Micha for a hotel match in London. It was a late evening match and easy to arrange. Micha was an excellent host and very friendly. Had a good grapple, I could tell from the start that he was strong and had a lot of stamina. I enjoyed meeting Micha and hopefully when he is back in UK we can have a return match.
Met up with Micha again 15/01/2016 for another set of wrestling matches. He is a strong and friendly guy to wrestle with lots of stamina. He is a superb host and a great wrestler. If you do happen to come across this guy you should definitely take him up on his challenge.
DazzFighter is recommended by back2pin4fun
Very pleased to meet with Dazz today for an intense 3 hours wrestling. This guy may be a lightweight, and that's saying something coming from me, but he is fast, feisty, fit and a determined wrestler. Thinks carefully about what he is doing and works out his moves intelligently. I was fortunate to use my slight weight advantage to rack up several subs initially but as my stamina waned, he fought back strongly and caught me in some very clever moves. With more experience and as he builds his own stamina and strength, he is going to be an awesome and formidable lightweight opponent. Rematches are absolutely on the cards. And, leaving aside the excellent wrestling experience, it was a pleasure to meet this very cool and interesting guy. Thank you Dazz :-)
Well, when he said a rematch was on, I did not expect it 24 hours later. This time at the London matroom. A much tougher match than the previous day and any tips I'd given Dazz then were applied mercilessly on me as he launched into racking up sub after sub. It was a good 20 minutes before I gradually restored balance and eventually overhaul but a much closer match and as intense as the previous encounter. A great guy. A great wrestler. And potential to just keep on getting better.
back2pin4fun is recommended by DazzFighter
I had the pleasure of meeting Paul today for a wrestling match. Paul is a friendly guy with a wicked sense of humour. He is an experienced wrestler so it was good to get a few tips, which I applied. At the beginning Paul's experience was showing as he got sub after sub. But once I settled in the match I was able to apply quite a few holds and I got a good set of subs out of the match. I had a great fun afternoon. I highly recommend him and I definitely ready for a re-match.
I had a re-match with Paul today 10/01/2016 at the London Matroom and I made sure on this occasion that it was a more even match. You really have to watch your guard with Paul, he has killer scissors with his strong legs. He moves quick around the mats and uses his weight to his best advantage, especially in a full body pin. It was real awesome meeting Paul so soon after our first match, he is a great guy and friendly on and off the mats and hope there be many more matches to come. If you ever come across Paul then wrestle him.
DazzFighter is recommended by freestyle
i met Dazz on saturday night while he was up here in Nottinghamshire .
he is a great guy both on and off the mats lots of energy too meaning a long match is guarenteed.
He is very stubben to make submit too and if you let your guard down he will lock you up good and make you sub as i found out when he reversed me and put me in his boston crab
highly recommended if you get the chance you should meet this light weight as he is quite tuff on the mats safe sane too and would def wrestle him again
freestyle is recommended by DazzFighter
I had a meet with Freestyle who i had been chatting to on and off for a while.
I knew I was going to be up against it. Right from the off I was in trouble being pulled and twisted in every direction, giving away sub after sub. I thought I needed to change the direction of the match and twisted him over for a Boston Crab and got my only one sub. I tried to get more with body and head scissors, choke holds but I guess Freestyle was determined to not give in. We threw in some light punches. I really enjoyed the match and meeting Freestyle and definitely recommend others to give this guy a wrestle, you won't be disappointed. Can't wait for round 2.
DazzFighter is recommended by nottsman
I had a great match with DazzFighter. He is a strong agile guy that does not like to give in easily, showing his determination and hunger to give a good fight. He is a really nice, friendly, genuine guy, so very happy to recommend anyone to meet him.
nottsman is recommended by DazzFighter
I met up with Nottsman on Saturday afternoon and had a good tussle. Nottsman is more skilled than he gives himself credit for and puts what skills he has to good use. So don't be too deceived with what he says and watch out for those legs and choke holds cause they're both killer moves. Thoroughly enjoyed my match. Great guy on and off the mats. Definitely recommend Nottsman for a good wrestle.
DazzFighter is recommended by BSF
Had a good match with DazzFighter. He's strong and keeps on going. Great for body punches too, give and take. Really enjoyed our meet and will definitely look for a rematch with him.
Our second match was more of the same but with increasing trust on both sides we could take it to the next level. Dazz is tenacious on the mats and keeps coming back for more. Great to have a sociable drink and something to eat after too!
BSF is recommended by DazzFighter
I have had several matches now with BSF.
Our last match was on 08/11/2015 it had been a while since we last wrestled so was a little nervous but he definitely got stronger since we matched up over 2 years ago.
It was another give and take match but this time with a few body punches. Loved the aggression and once again BSF was a superb host and I really can not say enough about this guy. Although I did manage to do my first surf board move and I loved being racked again. As always love to have a re-match and hope it not another 2 years before we get round to matching up again. So if you get challenged by BSF take him up on his challenge you will not regret it.
DazzFighter is recommended by NorthNotts
Met daz today for a short match. Nice guy who took it well. He had just had three matches in past 48 hrs so wasnt on full form. Thoroughly recommend. Hope you didnt mind all the subs DazZ
NorthNotts is recommended by DazzFighter
I met up with Matt this morning for a wrestle and I found I was more tired than I thought after my two matches I had on Saturday. Matt is a good wrestler and very skilled. Good friendly guy off the mats. Hope Matt did not mind it being a short match. Hope to meet for a match again sometime. Recommend Matt as a good wrestling opponent.
Maximus is recommended by DazzFighter
I had a meet with Maximus this morning. He is an enthusiastic wrestler, strong and used his weight advantage to great effect. I had a great time trying to get a sub out of the match but ended up on my back for most of it. I thought at one point I had got him but when he turned the table it was all over for me. Maximus is a real chatterbox, which is great as it eased all the nervousness of meeting a new opponent. He's a great gentleman and would love to wrestle him again when I got more experience as I learned a few things and hope I can use it to full effect on the next meets I have. Definitely recommend him for a wrestle.
DazzFighter is recommended by Londonlatino
Dazz is strong for his size with powerful legs and arms. He can give and take hard punches. Once he has gained more experience he'll be a force to be reckoned with. He's a friendly guy off the mats too.
Londonlatino is recommended by DazzFighter
I had a wrestling meet with LL on 14/11 I guess I was a little too nervy at first. LL knows how to wrestle and I enjoyed the match despite my lack of experience. He threw in some punches for good measure. But it was a bit more one sided than I would have liked it to have been. Hopefully when I have gained a bit more experience I can get a rematch and be able to return some of the subs he got on me. Off the mats LL is as friendly as they come and well recommended.
2toughwrestlers in 1 team is recommended by DazzFighter
Well what can I say I had the pleasure of meeting Toughwrestler. The match was short but it was hard, fast and aggressive. I think my inexperience showed so was a little disappointed with myself when I had to finally submit defeat from all the body scissors and punches. Toughwrestler has strong legs and punches hard. He's definitely someone who i'd like to meet again for a longer match as believe I could learn a thing or two. I strongly recommend, even if u are starting out, to wrestle this guy.
DazzFighter is recommended by Scrapmerchant 1
I had the pleasure of meeting this little hot, fit man this evening. Despite the big weight advantage in my favour Dazz kept coming back for more - he was reluctant to submit when he was in difficulty. We wrestled for a couple of hours - a good sweaty workout. Sadly for Dazz the Scotsman dominated. A rematch is on the cards......watch this space!!
Scrapmerchant 1 is recommended by DazzFighter
I had a meet this evening with Scrapmerchant, who has been taunting me all day today, the little wee Scottish Bastard. I told him he had to come and be aggressive and he sure was that and more. He is a strong lad and had me under control right from the start. I had moments where I thought I might be in a chance of getting a sub but he just was not having any of it today. I really enjoyed the meet and definitely recommend anyone who has a chance to wrestle him to just go for it. Can't wait for Round 2. Hard, fast and aggressive as always.
DazzFighter is recommended by Tyger
Has a great time with Dazz. He's much better than he gives himself credit for - strong, wiry, and excellent instincts. Picked up new stuff quickly, and improvised well. Really enjoyed fighting him, and hope we can lock up again soon. To all you other wrestlers out there - catch him quick before he gest too good!
Tyger is recommended by DazzFighter
I had the pleasure of meeting Tyger and was not disappointed. Loved the tattoos he had. We had a good tussle and a chat. He is a good wrestler, very experienced and used his weight and strength well. We both got a few subs each Tyger showed me a few moves and different ways of using my weight when being the lighter opponent. So learning all the time, much appreciated. I really liked the grapevine, cradle, straddle, bear hugs and .many more that Tyger used on me to try to submit me. He is a great guy on and off the mats. Well recommended and definitely want another match.
DazzFighter is recommended by london sub
finally got to hit the mats with Dazz. Got to say he's a determined guy, able to to keep getting back up and trying again, despite a huge weight (and experience) difference. Great attitude! Once he's back to his normal strength and fitness, maybe it will be a fairer match...
Punctual, polite and friendly. If you are in his weight range you should definitely meet him!
london sub is recommended by DazzFighter
We chatted for a bit before doing a little wrestling at the Hackney Mat Room. I found LondonSub to be a great host. Because I was the much lighter guy he came down a few levels but was still able to control me. We threw in a few punches for good measure, which I enjoyed. He has a lot of wrestling experience. When the match finished LondonSub was gracious enough to put me on the right path home. Hope to have another match with him again when I have a bit more experience and better strength.
DazzFighter is recommended by LdnGrapple
Made arrangements easily for DF to come and visit for a session on my mats.
He's been out of action for a while so is a bit rusty. He still got me with a severe side on headlock!! He is safe and sane and is keen for more lightweight matches.
So I can recommend other local London guys to challenge DF!
LdnGrapple is recommended by DazzFighter
The wrestling session I had with Simon turned more into a training session on how to handle myself defensively against the heavier weighted guys. It a wrestling session that I am not going to forget in a hurry. Simon was unhurried in his approach and very patient and knowledgeable. I learned more defensive approaches to submission wrestling, which hopefully will change my approach to some of my upcoming matches. I wish I could have had a short wrestling session after the refreshments that Simon had provided. I can't thank him enough for showing me some of the techniques he showed me. Simon is a surprise package, has a good understanding and is a great powerful wrestler. Hopefully when I finished my matches in September and rested my body I can have a further wrestling session with Simon he's a great guy to know. I really enjoyed my first London (local) match.
DazzFighter is recommended by BrightonTom
First and foremost Dazz is a very nice guy. He's an extremely keen wrestler, I went to his hotel room Thursday afternoon, and we had a good session of submission wrestling. I managed to put some holds on him, but he proved a slippery customer in escaping from some of them. I would like to meet him again.
I wished I could have stayed and chatted longer. When he's next in Brighton or I am in London and hope to wrestle him again.
BrightonTom is recommended by DazzFighter
I met up with BrightonTom for the first time today. We had been chatting for a while about having a match. He a cool guy and a lot stronger than he gives himself credit for. I had a great wrestle with him and believe we were evenly matched based on match experience. Although believe he were stronger than me and used his weight advantage well. I really enjoyed the school boy pins he gave. He's a fabulous guy on and off the mat. Hope to wrestle him again soon.
DazzFighter is recommended by speedowrestle
An interesting Friday evening with this charming chap. We talked about brain surgery, tax treaties and why we prefer Samsung to iPhones... and we did a bit of wrestling too. Dazz like it fast and tough, and despite the big weight difference, we both worked up a sweat. He has a high pain threshold and doesn't give up easily. Fun to wrestle. Thanks for hosting.
speedowrestle is recommended by DazzFighter
Well this was my second wrestle of the day. No excuses but Speedowrestle is a strong wrestler and as much as I tried my best to get a submission he just would not submit and the arm locks and the body scissor holds soon wore me down. I had a great time wrestling this guy and perhaps when I am more stronger and gain more experience I can put up a better defence. I definitely would like a re-match when I am back in Brighton again.
DazzFighter is recommended by tartanmac
Nice friendly guy,I realy had a weight advantage but was a good natured bout,felt no pressure and we were both very polite with each other,I'd recommend Dazz Fighter as a good wrestle.
tartanmac is recommended by DazzFighter
I wrestled with Tartanmac today. We wrestled some but was not strong enough to get out of the bear hugs, which he used with great effect. I was able to practice my arm locks, which I appreciate. Tartanmac does not need to worry too much about the other opponent, as generally they should be able to handle themselves. Despite the weight difference but I appreciate his sentiment. He is kind and considerate. Respects his opponent and is tough to wrestle. Hopefully I be seeing him again for another match soon.
DazzFighter is recommended by mikecumbria
Dazz is gym-fit and strong for his size; he's inexperienced as a wrestler, but very keen and quick to learn.
mikecumbria is recommended by DazzFighter
Mike makes you feel welcomed and is a great host and showed me a few things about wrestling and had a great time....well worth the journey from London...can't wait till the summer to learn some Cumbrian Wrestling outdoors. Hopefully I would have learnt a few more things by then LOL.
I had my second meet with Mike 12th April - 14th April 2013. Again great host, great mat room to wrestle in....he taught me a couple more moves and need to improve on my strength to hold the bear hug for longer length of time....but really enjoyed the wrestles we had.
DazzFighter is recommended by Australian Wrestler
Well what can I say-We became very good online mates-which led him to make a special flight down under to catch up and wrestle March 2012.Off the mats he is one of the nicest people you care to meet with a dry sense of humour and a great laugh to have with but more genuine than almost anyone I know.As for his wrestling though I comfortably controlled him he doesnt lack passion or the will to wrestle and with more training and against guys his size he will be an opponent to be reckoned with.Strongly recommend him but he is tenacious and hates to give in.Give him a go-you wont be disappointed and happy to recommend him
Dec 2012-Got to catch uop with Dazz again when I returned to the UK-he has def improved and gaining strength-managed to get a sub on meand he is improving with his gym-still happy i control him at wrestling but know I will have to keep adv to contril him-def improver
Australian Wrestler is recommended by DazzFighter
Wow what can I say....I can concur Adrian is definitely my online buddy. Although Adrian lives thousands of miles away the visit was well worth the distance I traveled. I am real glad that I invested some of my time to meet Adrian who is one in a million. We wrestled a few times and I nearly got a couple of submissions but was controlled pretty much all the time. Adrian is a skilled wrestler who is not afraid to come down to your level. I had a great time and had lots of laughs; he has a wicked sense of humor to go with that smile of his. Definitely recommend others to take some time out to meet Adrian as you won’t be disappointed and can't wait to meet him again next year.
My second chance came in Scotland and Adrian was definitely stronger than the last. I did on this occasion get my sub so maybe I am improving. It was great to meet up again and had great fun on and off the mats....he has a wicked sense of humor. He respects the abilities of his opponents and I hope to have my re-match with Adrian soon.
DazzFighter is recommended by robroyscotland
Had a great session with this fella. What he lacked in skill he made up for in enthusiasm and determination. He just kept going. A genuinely nice fella who is determined to just get better and better. If you want a good competitive submission wrestle, he's your man!
robroyscotland is recommended by DazzFighter
I met with Rob today and he was a perfect host. We did some submission wrestling. Hes a strong wrestler and knows his stuff. I learnt a lot and will take this to my next match. Definitely recommend this guy if you want a good competitive submission wrestle.

When not fighting he is a real nice friendly man and a I am happy to now class him as a friend .

Simon is strong competition for any guy willing to give him a challenge. He turned up in Edinburgh and I had a few battles, he showed me a few moves and I discovered the enjoyment of Submission Wrestling. I definitely gonna take up his invitation to travel to Shetlands when I have gained more experience.
