Had a great meet with Daz recently, he kindly offer to host, and very welcome and hospital from the moment we met.
He admits not being technical but he more than makes up for it with muscle and strength.
Yeah he’s short, but strong too (did I mention sexy). But he seems to take nothing seriously. Making everything enjoyable and funny with his own combination of restraining holds a d humour.
Throughly nice guy. Looking forward to next time.

Marc came to mine and finally a guy as short as me arrived at the door. We got onto the mat straight away and I was fun from the start. This guy has more weight than myself and I managed to take him down with maximum effort he has strength throughout so I was sweating in no time.
Managed to get a tap after gaining top position on him but he maintained his cheeky banter.
What an absolutely nice genuine decent friendly lad definatly up for round two
Grapplerlad is recommended by Pryre
Had my first bout with Grapplerlad, a great introduction to wrestling, Great guy with great proportions and knows how to use it speedy and strong was hard to catch. Agile body and mind quickly adapting and evading my attacks. Got a good few moves in earlier making the most of superior size and reach, but the opportunities for such drastically reduced as the fight went on. Had a great fight and learned a lot and really looking forward to the next match.
Pryre is recommended by Grapplerlad
Wow I tried to grapple this Goliath, but it was never gonna be victory for the Grapplerlad not with this big burly bearded beast of a man.
Almost exactly double my body weight and almost 1 and half foot taller than me this wrestler picked me up, threw me and pinned me like a toy.
Strong legs and upper body, I wasn't gonna ever get this man down.
But I enjoyed the grapple he's a beast with a cracking nature and personality and as big as he is id enjoy another wrestle with him. Definatly a guy for you bigger boys to grapple.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Scorpus
What can I say first. Strong. Very strong wrestler. Armbar him was completely out of the equation. I tried and failed miserably. This wrestler is solid muscle and energy. I enjoyed every moment of our match. He moves fast and learns even faster. Once you attempt something there is no way he is going to let you do it again. Highly recommended. Thanks mate for a great match.
Scorpus is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met Nick at mine. We had a good hour plus on my mats. This lad has some knowledge of BJJ and other martial arts and is getting effective at applying it to his grappling. He circles and watches for weakness and opportunity, and then he's on it.
He had three tap outs from me, one was from a chokehold which I had to tap from as sense prevailed.
As my opponents know I don't like to tap so my best defence Was, and is my fitness agility strength and down right stubbornness. After about an hour we were both absolutely soaked in sweat just as the battle should be. And today I'm aching but loved it.
Good skill and a really good guy I very much reccomend Nick to anybody that enjoys give and take or a good tap out subs match.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Tanker
Me? A beast???? Never!!
Harmless old Tabby! 🐱
Good looking guy with piercing blue eyes (match the blue of the tattoos on his finely honed physique)
Reminded me strongly of Stoker from Naples in both looks and personality.
Having seen him action I had him down as one of those dangerous agile strong lightweights who can apply a deadly sub in a flash.
An extrovert (to put it mildly) think Tigger in Winnie -the-Pooh!
After pretending to be terrified of me, (including trying to run away) we entered the ring for wos style extravaganza with every
theatrical and hysterical touch in the book, bar sequinned jackets angry grannies and Kent Walton!
He was brilliant, so much fun, up for anything possibly the most convincing and entertaining jobber ever, who picks up moves quickly and really throws himself into the role.
In person very warm,friendly gsoh (He is from Yorkshire after all😉) 💮💮
Safe and sane. Totally recommended. Till next time👍
Tanker is recommended by Grapplerlad
What can I say about this beast of a wrestler. I got convinced to go head to head with him in the ring at Pippas for my first ever attempt at Pro wrestling. This man picked me up like I was air and very controlled I was bodyslammed I was cornered, stomped gut punched thrown into the ropes, head locked taken down and conquered. And I loved it, my first ever taste of Pro and I've now got the taste for it in my mouth. Tanker knows exactly how to Pro wrestle, and schooled me through the grapple. I want more time with Tanker to learn more Pro moves as he's fantastic at bieng careful with them. His Boston crab was awsome I felt safe but it hurt I felt secure but I was screaming like a wounded warrior all the way through. This man is one I RECOMMEND he's absolutely a gentleman too.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Peccavi
Daz is a fast and tough opponent, he literally bounces with energy, so fast and agile you cannot get a lock on him and he spins and dives from any hold. He is the moving target you cannot hit.
Off the mats he is intelligent, friendly and welcoming, a real class act. Looking forward to the rematch.
Peccavi is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met Adam today, he came over to sample my matroom and work me over. Don't let his polite nature and well spoke voice fool you, once he hits the mat this guy goes in for the kill. Fast and strong, and with aggression that is warrior like. His rugby background is apparent, in his leg and shoulder strength, he charges like a bull and you will be knocked to the floor if you let your guard down for a second. I was on full alert as we grappled intensly and really got the battle heated. I made this warrior sing for his supper, but he had me cornered for the duration of the fight. Awsome fun and definatly a grappler id enjoy meeting again.

Really nice guy. Very enthusiastic and a great wrestle.
Chelt bristol is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met this lad yesterday. A really nice welcoming guy really easy to get on with.
Was good to grapple this lad. He has a short stocky solid physique and with more skill under his belt he's gonna be a good and strong opponent.
Definatly worth a meet up.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Muscle Monkey
Fiesty, strong and fast. Grapplerlad will give you a good run for your money. Very nice guy too.
Muscle Monkey is recommended by Grapplerlad
Solid fit and strong, muscle monkey tied me up in knots. His BJJ training pays off when he wrestles and he had me tapping out, in fact he got all the tap outs. Really good at phsycing his opponent out and anticipating his opponents moves. Great banter too, this lads gonna do really well as a wrestler. And he's a sound lad. Enjoyed the grapple very much.
Grapplerlad is recommended by finest
An absolute star; this gent organised the matroom, met me at the station and made sure that I had food and drink before the match. On the mats Darren is like the tasmanian devil; a complete whirlwind of energy, muscle and speed. On top of that he had me laughing the whole time with an endless madcap stream of consciousness. I do hope we can meet again!

Met James today and we booked some time at pippas. What a cracking lad he is to get on with decent polite and the fittest thighs.
He's fast on the mat and good strong thighs. Had a good fun banter match with him today and we worked up a sweat and laughed through the whole match.
Very much a recommendation one to meet. Was a real fun experience.
Grapplerlad is recommended by RugbyBear
Great bout with Grapplerlad. He's strong and fast and soon had me on the ropes. A hard sweaty match with plenty of grunts and groans. A great opponent and loads of fun in and out of the ring. Highly recommended.
lee123 is recommended by Grapplerlad
Lee came to mine for a grapple. We spent some time before hand chatting and getting to know each other it was really good to meet him.
He has strength in his upper body and is quick on his take downs, his scissors are challenging to handle as he squeezes with real power.
We matched in skill and strength and the grappling was quite even, but Lee did get me to almost tap on a few occasions.
I really enjoyed meeting this wrestler who, with more skills behind him will be a very enjoyable and challenging opponent.
Grapplerlad is recommended by niwrestler
Me and Daz had chatted for a few years but never managed to meet. Finally got the chance and we had great fun. The time flew by. He is very fit, muscled and strong. I did manage to work him over, but I had to work for every sub, as he doesn't give easily and his abs are solid so it makes scissor subs extremely tough!
Overall a great guy, who will be formidable when he learns more moves
niwrestler is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met Tim today at Pippas, we had an hour and half of mat time.
This wrestler has a cracking lean physique with strong lean thighs that can scissor, and once he's got you and applies the squeeze this man can get tap out's. Agile and watch out for his head locks, strong applications once he's got you.
We had agreed a heel, jobber match and he heeled me, getting his pins and arm bars applied, and those thighs he got plenty of tap out's.
Very enjoyable grapple we had a few tests of strength, and I gave him a run for his money at times but he always managed to get those amazingly strong thighs wrapped and his skill was more than I have currently making the wreste enjoyable.
A fantastic lad too.
Grapplerlad is recommended by RugbyBoy
What an awesome lad! We had a short match which was great. He is in excellent shape, a finely chiselled body, one of the best you'll find. He is very energetic, engaging and fun. Learning different techniques in each match, he is fast becoming a brilliant grappler! Great strength and agility, definitely one to wrestle! Can't wait to see him again, top lad and highest recommendation ✌👊
RugbyBoy is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met rugbyboy at pippa''s and we had a short and very informative grapple on the mats.
A skilled and solid and strong lad that has a real knowledge of submission and BJJ.
As I'm a beginner Rugbyboy very patiently went thru a few escape moves with me and a scissor sub. What a fantastic lad he was happy to share his knowledge and he made me feel so much at ease.
A fellow West Yorkshire lad, we look after our own.
This lad, I know can pack a punch, solid and sexy.
And a really nice lad to get on with. He gets my vote.

It has been more than two years since I wrestled Grapplerlad. At that time he had an injury that curtailed our match. However, he has bounced back with huge enthusiasm and I had the honour of wrestling this strong, super fit, lad again at Pippas today. A pocket rocket is how I would describe him now! He is quickly gaining more experience and confidence and soon this lovely guy is going to be a real force on the mats.
I had the real pleasure and honour to meet Grapplerlad this afternoon as my 100th opponent! He has a fantastic physique backed up by a wonderful character and sense of humour. His boundless enthusiasm for wrestling is very humbling for 'old soldiers' like me and I predict this fit, athletic guy will prove to be a formidable opponent very soon. It was only a recent injury that prevented him from a full on match today....but watch this space! I thoroughly recommend you join the queue and meet him!
Torrnado is recommended by Grapplerlad
Meeting Steve was just as he says on the tin, a Tornado. A fighter smaller and lighter than myself that has some strength. We had a test of strength and found we had similar amounts of it. But this small southern firecracker doesn't tell you about his killer scissors, oh no! and when he applied em, I tapped, boy did I tap. Unfortunately only 5 minutes into our wrestle my Injury returned big time! but this fantastic geeza, was a real Gent about it. He proceeded to lightly coach on a few techniques, and we got some awesome match, and profile shots. Even my first ever time in a wrestling ring, shots. I have promised this skilled and amazing fella a rematch when I am healed, I need to get payback for his killer scissors. Thanks for today Steve, your a diamond geeza and glad we got to meet today. Until next time pal, ding, ding.
Grapplerlad is recommended by latestarter
met Daz at Pippas on Saturday. He is a great guy to chat with and, as we are both comparatively new to wrestling, we spent some time comparing our experiences thus far. Had a wrestle on the main mats and, with his superior strength and my longer limbs, enjoyed a fairly even match.
Look forward to the next time
latestarter is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met latestarter for the first time at pippas. We had chatted throughout the day and had been grappling with various different wrestlers during the day.
We knew that we were two of the less experienced wrestlers at the event and grabbed a maroom initially for a grapple.
We matched in skill and that gave us both time to attack and defend and strategise. I really enjoyed wrestling with him, he defended well against my attacks and I made the mistake of showing this upcoming wrestler my back He was on me and had me in a choke hold, he took my leg and I had to tap. He's a tall man so my escape was not a option. He got a tap out.
A fantastic fella off the mat, and a good strong wrestler on mat. Meet him and try him out you will enjoy the experience as much as I did.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Wresslefun
I met Grapplerlad at Pippa's where we got acquainted and the next day I accepted his invitation to his flat for a grapple.
We locked horns and i immediately realised that this guy is a very experienced and strong opponent.We fought hard trying to make each other submit but we were evenly matched.In the end Grapplerlad's experience came to the fore and i found myself on the mats headlocked.I can't say that I complained though..
Off the mats Grapplerlad is a funny guy that will have you in stitches.He was a great host,a quality man and a sight for sore eyes.His body is just incredible.
We finished up by me giving him a massage and then enjoying a brew.
Grapplerlad is an urbane and overall a lovely guy.Do meet him!
Wresslefun is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met Dimitris initially at Pippas group meet yesterday, to say he attended alone, and was nervous he was soon on the mats and giving some of the fighters a run for their money. His get stuck in attitude was very obvious.
He then came to mine for a grapple today.
We had a brew and a chat, this well spoken lad is a really genuine and nice lad, he has a buddy in me from now on.
We got down to some grappling, this lad has a impressive natural strength and we circled and locked horns but I was easily matched, if not overpowered by his strength. This lad will be a real test for any wrestler once he has the skill behind his natural ability to hold his own.
We tussled and fought for dominance but I think we both matched each other, skill wise and I couldn't keep him down.
After a real sweaty 15 min's or so of horn locking we chilled and talked. He's a real gent and has a natural heel in there when he fights.
A real recommendation for anyone that wants to be impressed by his ability to lock up and burst with blasts of strength.

What a bundle of energy Daz is.... From the moment we met, he didn't stop... A real life energizer bunny! Full of wit, humour and an eagerness to learn! A great guy to get on the mats, cheeky and fun! I enjoyed pummeling him very much but also a pleasure to share a few moves with. Looking forward to meeting again in a few weeks!!!

Tony was a fantastic coach on the day we met at Pippas last Sunday. What stuck out was his consideration for my recovering injury and he worked round that. He's a fantastic fighter both in Wrestling and his Jujitsu and was happy to coach me in both skills. A great lad on mat and a Gentleman off mat. His coaching wax precise and the man has patience and he tool his time to ensure my techniques were spot on. Thoroughly enjoyed my slow introduction back to wrestling. And he did have a few bouts of kicking my arse. Deffo one fella to wrestle with if your up for a challenging bout.
Grapplerlad is recommended by manclad531
Really enjoyed my meet with Grapplerlad. He is carrying an injury at the moment so we went at it a bit easier but he's incredibly strong, in really good shape and looks the part in his gear. I tend to be a bit shy meeting for the first time but he's also a nice guy who soon put me at ease. Got to try out some new techniques too and think we will be able to learn a lot from each other. Can't wait for round 2. Highly recommend him
manclad531 is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met Manclad today at mine. And we had a controlled grapple, due to my existing groin injury. We traded moves and applied s few, as much as it was enjoyable, found it frustrating cos this lads been out of the game a while, but still has knowledge of the fight and skill that's still there. But can confirm that he's a strong lad and we soon were sweating as we locked horns. We have agreed, once I'm right for a proper full on Promission fight and I look forward to that. He's a sound lad too, was a real pleasure meeting him and look forward to a proper wrestler. Here's to round 2 Manclad.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Squashlad
09/04/2016: You would think, after a good fun but tiring afternoon's continuous wrestling at the OWG meet at Pippa's, that a gentle little roll around on the mats with a guy of 5' 4", brand new to wrestling, carrying a groin strain and only wanting a little low-key upper body grapple would be just the ticket for chilling out and getting some breath back. And you would be right: it would be. Except of course if that guy happens to be Grapplerlad. Because Grapplerlad just doesn't do gentle little rolls around, injury or no. This is a guy who wants to win! And he might be pocket-sized, but it's a pocket battleship. There's some serious muscle on him and when it's flexed around your throat, wow do you know it! This is a wrestler you want to take on now---while he's still injured, let alone when he's 100% and fully trained up, because he's learning lightening fast and when he is fully good to go the Admiral Graf Spee here is going to be blowing guys twice his size out of the water, let alone ponderous schmucks like me. Off the mats he's a laugh a minute, a super-friendly and personable lad that you'd have to try really hard not to like. Very highly recommended and I can't wait for a longer go at him.
Squashlad is recommended by Grapplerlad
Had a brief wrestle with Squash lad, and we're meant to be only upper body due to my groin injury, but the lean, mean wrestling machine got my adrenaline up to full power in minutes of our mat time. His skill and his applied pins and subs come at you and he had me struggling to get to him on an attack. This man has some good strength too and I can't wait to get more mat time with this genuine decent fella.
Grapplerlad is recommended by fitguy2
Grapplerlad was meant to have an injury, and we were meant to roll "easy". Well if this was "easy", it will be very interesting to see what he is like without an injury! You can tell he loves competitive wrestling! He is so eager and feisty, and his competitive nature comes out very quickly when he gets that adrenaline rush. He is so fit and strong and muscular from having been a personal trainer, and now continuing to workout on daily basis. Looking forward to wrestling him again and watching his progression!
fitguy2 is recommended by Grapplerlad
Met Fitguy today and hosted at mine. Our wrestle was restricted due to my injury in my right groin
So we were supposed to go light. Mike was a real gent and tried to adhere to this, but fiesty Grapplerlad was on it from the get go. Fitguy had me pinned and had me tapping out on numerous occasions, boy this guy can get you pinned, and he has real strength in his grips. All I can say is really enjoyed the mat time we had, and his fight banter was just what the Grapplerlad enjoys. Don't underestimate this guy for his lean build, behind his eyes is skill and he applies it right when he needs to. Skilled with a dominating streak. Fantastic guy and a skilled fighter. Here's to round 2 mike..;-)

Had a wrestling session with Grapplerlad in Manchester. This guys is really strong and even if he has been wrestling only for a few months, knows how to apply some really good moves. He knows how to use his sexy muscular body 😉 Was really cool to fight with him and be able to submit him even he i got the most of the submissions. Don't hesitate to meet him
Antho1984 is recommended by Grapplerlad
Had a really energised wrestle with this friendly and fit French fella. The benefits of grappling with lads of similar weight and height to me are that I find the fight dynamic works better. This fighter had me in a few submissions and I tapped out on a few occasions, but gave him a challenging time on the mat and got him pinned and submitting in return. He came back for more and after almost an hour we were both pretty fought out. A really good lad off the Mat and would be really happy to wrestle him again.
Grapplerlad is recommended by NorthNotts
Wow just met Daz. Great guy who has the most amount of energy i have ever come across on the mats. He has been described by others as energetic and that is bang on point and then some. Determined chap with a great physique and will be a force to reckon with once he has more experience. I have no doubt he will pick holds and moves up very quickly so meet him now before he gets too good! We only had a very short match which was restricted given lack of mats and a very hard floor. Love wrestling guys with similar stats so this is one guy i wanna have a long proper match with on the mats. Highly recommended both on and off the mats.
NorthNotts is recommended by Grapplerlad
A small wrestler like myself and a really good lad. We wrestled, and as much as it was only a short bout man this fighter turned it up. Matt is fast, and has a real strength but it's his amazing on point, constant defense that will keep anybody on the attack on there toes. I loved every second of meeting this lad, big things come in small packages, and us smaller fighters should never be underestimated. We werent on mats and didn't have the room to manoeuvre so restricted our wrestling. But this fighters in and on it watch him his defenses are on totally and he isn't easy to get a grip off. Really really look forward to a mat wrestle with this fighter in the future. And he's a chilled out good geezer too.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Leglocklover
I got to meet this newbie for a wrestle at his place and what a great time we had. Daz is like a puppy, very excitable and has boundless amounts of energy and enthusiasm. It is clear that he has learnt a lot already in the couple of months that he has been wrestling and he soon had the first submission on me. He has a great passion to learn more and so I showed him a few pro style moves that he quickly picked up and skillfully applied to me. This man is in great physical shape and is a natural wrestler. Wrestle him now before he learns too much more!
Leglocklover is recommended by Grapplerlad
What a really good time I had wrestling with this long time grappler. Was my first bout with a fighter of a similar height and build to me. Found our wrestling flowed due to me being able to apply my moves more accurately with him, giving me confidence to get effective pins, and a few submissions. What knowledge he has a fantastic fighter with good technical skill, he had me tapping out with some memorably painful holds around me lower limbs, and shins ouch! Carlos I can still feel that submission fella. Off mat he,s a fantastic lad to get on with, a real Gent and easy going, and I really hope we get to wrestle again. Thanks again Carlos for introducing me to Meetfighters too, you are the lad that launched me here so basically its all thanks to you fella.
Grapplerlad is recommended by eastcheshireguy
Met this guy at a group session at Pippas that included a period of training at the start. From the way he bounded up to volunteer to be the dummy in any demonstration I knew he would be lively on the mats but it's great a new comer is so keen to get to know things. Once I got to grips with him in a bout his strength and energy were impressive. I enjoyed 20 minutes or so of rolling with him and though I had to remind him to breath now and again it was great fun. He's very determined and puts it all in so my weight and height advantages were eroded as we fought and it took some power to get him to tap. So great fun and attitude - and also looks great in his gear! Off the mats he's a really social guy. I can't wait to get to grips with him for longer sessions and wholly recommend him.
eastcheshireguy is recommended by Grapplerlad
Had a quick wrestle on the mats with Eastcheshireguy and what a tough but enjoyable 15-20 mins were had. This fighters had me tapping out a few times and he's quick, his forearm lock is precise and this fighters knows his fight. Had me cornered and pinned, and had to tell me to " calm down" a few times cos he completely got my wrestlers adrenaline peaking quickly and I ended up doing most of the sweating as this skilled man had me trying to escape his grip. I really look forward to more bouts with Andy and will say, what a genuine and friendly lad he is, thank you for yesterday buddy a real pleasure to meet you.
Grapplerlad is recommended by Physical
Agree with all the other comments and I was struck by Daz's "effervescence" -boy does he exude friendliness and charm. He's someone that is like a sponge for information, techniques and tips on execution and that means he love the sport. Yes absolutely I had a massive weight advantage but what we did was practice, practice, practice - that's how we all learned what we know - through experience and practice. He's a really fun guy on and off he mats and meeting him will not disappoint because he has drive and determination and no matter what age you come to this if you love it - it's fun! Hope to meet again and share what little I know - it was a pleasure Daz.

What an absolute pleasure meeting this guy was. On the mat he is extremely skilled, patient explanatory and practical. Off the mat, a solid big gentleman. Nick the pleasure, is and was all mine meeting you. We spent nearly an hour on the mats as he coached me in, take downs from standing, kneeling, submission moves and pins. I learned so much from this wrestling big man who towered over me and only benefited big time from our meet up, as it was my first ever time at Pippas and a group meet Nick made me feel so welcome from the get go. I Deffo want to learn more from this fighter who is skilled, I aspire to his level one day.
Grapplerlad is recommended by corkey
It is always a privilege and a responsibility to be with someone as they begin to explore wrestling. Daz was nervous but soon relaxed and showed that he had the basics rapidly taking shape. He is fit, agile, strong and feisty and keen to learn. He wants to know techniques passionately, but I suspect he really needs to get genuine wrestling experience. I really enjoyed our time wrestling and my goodness this keen fellow learns quickly and should not be underestimated. I can also affirm that Daz is a polite and generous host, and a very pleasant person to meet.
corkey is recommended by Grapplerlad
Another informative and enjoyable wrestle with corkey. Not only is he an extremely decent fella, he has the ability to wrestle and make any beginner feel at ease and totally comfortable throughout. I feel privileged to be learning from a skilled man and have already doubled in my confidence thanks to him. I recommend any lads on here to wrestle with him and enjoy this man's skills. Thank you again col for all your advice, coaching and time I am really humbled by it.
Grapplerlad is recommended by scotsgrappler
"Guid things come in small bulk" is an old Scots saying. That thought crossed my mind as I pinned this feisty newcomer. Yeah, he really hates to have to tap and given more bouts getting him to do so may prove a challenge. He brings aggression, stamina and commitment and is a fast learner. Lovely toned physique speaks to his fitness background. He can take a lot and come back for more. A natural fighter. Decent, chatty lad off the mats with a rogueish grin. Very highly recommended.
scotsgrappler is recommended by Grapplerlad
A wrestler with experience and knowledge that puts a beginner totally at ease, is a good man. Scottsgrappler coached me, and put me through my paces but at the same time, did it with respect. I'm in total appreciation for what I've learned today from a skilled wrestler and damn good guy. Thank you again buddy.
