It was a shock to hear that John died on 14/02/2019
John was a great ambassador to the wrestling community. He tirelessly organised regular events for the Open Wrestling Group and others.
He was always keen to share his wrestling knowledge and was very hospitable.
He will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
07/12/2013 - Finally had a match with John. We've known each other for a while as we both attend various wrestling event but we never had a match until today. It was worth the wait.
John is a strong wrestler who knows his holds. He's a very friendly guy off the match too and very generous. Highly recommended. I look forward to our next match.

JOHN1953 is recommended by Glasgow1971
I've known John for a few years now and have built up a friendship, he's always got time for you at the meets he regularly organises. Managed to get a wrestle with him at the last meet, he's a skilled and relentless wrestler and once he locks on he's nigh on impossible to shift. Quite an evenly matched contest despite the size difference, this guy just refuses to submit.
Look forward to the next time and thoroughly recommend anyone to take him on.

JOHN1953 is recommended by Wresslefun
One can't thank John enough for organising such great events at Pippa's in Manchester.An excellent host who was very 'protective' of me knowing that it was my first time there.He encouraged me to participate and introduced me to many guys there.
We wrestled and i liked his calm and confidence that come from years of wrestling practice.We rolled on the floor many times trying to win submissions.
Off the mats John has a heart of gold.He invited me over to his for a few private bouts and i intend to visit him and enjoy a good wrestle.
Wresslefun is recommended by JOHN1953

have chatted with John a few times since I started going to meetings at Pippas in Sept and find him to be an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and welcoming guy. Finally got chance to have a grapple with him at the Dec meet and found him to be a strong, skilful and safe wrestler. Look forward to many more matches. Recommend you get on the mats if you get the chance

I really enjoyed wresting John 1953, a very fiesty opponent who gets stuck right in, putting his undoubted skill and experience to good use, restraining me in every way possible.
He is stronger than he looks and took two submissions out of me in the first session, but I did manage to get one out of him in the 2nd, which was not easy
I also learnt a lot from our encounter and I will look forward to meeting him again
i met john at pippers with two other mates after chating a few times he took the time to travel down from scotland john is a very freindly guy and to spend time with he is just a year younger than me but is abit bigger than me in wight and solid when we hit the mats he just keeps coming at you and does not give up easy but i did get the better of him a few times with more time i no he will get alot better and i look forward to next time thanks mate
well i got to meet this guy at last when he came over to mine with a mate of mine colin to use my mats never judge a book by its cover as i soon found out his legs are wicked as my ribs found out but apart from that a dam good wrestler and nos wat he his doing very safe and sane and a joy to wrestle off the mats a nice guy to talk and spend time with and i hope to see more of him and i wood recomend him to all doint miss the chance guys
JOHN1953 is recommended by Ricotewrestler
I had the pleasure of meeting this kind grappler at the meet he organized at the iconic PIPPA´S wrestling facilities in Manchester. Very nuanced and controlled grappling him was like grappling with my boj instructor cause of his paused pace and fluidity. He want for everything and we spent a great time going at each other. I must add he made everything possible to made me feel welcomed in the group and was around for anything I needed to know.looking forward to seeing my new friend John next time I come over and hope that time to come soon enough! Thanks for everything buddy!

A very technical and stubborn fighter - just does not give! Had a very pleasant grapple, and I was very impressed with his technical skill level. Really good grappler, and a very nice guy as well. Thanks for arranging these meets, John!

(09/09/17) Pippa’s Wrestling Factory, Manchester. Met John for a wrestle in a mat room at the Group meet. As has been said before he is strong, agile and knows his holds; thought my weight advantage might help, but it didn’t! Put it down to my inexperience – excuses, excuses!
Thanks for the hospitality off the mats.
I had a good match with John. He was extremely hospitable and when we got down to wrestle he certainly looked the part. He is strong and has great stamina so we had a long wrestle. He's a tough opponent and knows his holds. I thoroughly enjoyed our match and I hope I can meet him again.
ive wanted to meet david for over 4 years now but never have due to were he lives but at last it happened when he took the time to travel up to the north west to wrestle me at my place davids a very nice guy and wrestler and did not disapoint in anyway hes fit looks good in is gear and fast and a wicked pair of legs as i found to my cost as i had to tap out but was good wrestling for us both off the mats he is a very freindly guy and good to spend time with and im looking forward to next time i caint this guy enough you must meet this guy if you get the chance to wrestle him or you will regret it thanks david
I've had a fair few matches with John now.
Deceptively strong, with the terrible combination of cheek and the strength to back it up, haha! Very good at catching you off-guard and gets the chokes on pretty strong...
Off the mats, though, down to earth and a top bloke. Would definitely recommend a match as always.

i started chatting with John when i planned to attend one of the event that he arranged but i had to cancel then i started chatting with him and know him better. i am thankful to give the chance to wrestle him and learnt some from him. i was stupid to think i can use the weight advantage i have but it was easy for him to beat me safe and sane. he is very skilled and know what he is doing. looking for round 2 to revenge.
off the mat we went for the drink and had good conversion.
i recommend him highly for anyone is visiting Manchester

Not sure quite why this star of the northern mat scene and I have not hit the mats before, but we did yesterday! And it was a blast! I was obviously careful of the huge weight difference, but it was a fast and furious encounter! Roll on Round 2!! This guy gives such a lot to the UK scene by organising meets! GOLD STAR Recommendation from me!

I had the pleasure to wrestle John1953 on my mats in a three way with Walsallgoodguy. He and I have wrestled many times in the past and it is always enjoyable. John knows exactly what he is doing being both skilled and strong. He is a tough guy to try and beat and we usually end up in a draw. I recommend you meet him.
I wrestled John for the first time at Pippas ring yesterday. We both thoroughly enjoyed several matches together. He is very experienced, strong and tenacious on the mats and a friendly guy off them. I hope we meet again soon and I'd recommend him to anyone.

I had met John1953 several times at Pippa's in the past but had never had the chance to wrestle him until now that is. I found out that his reputation as a strong and skilled wrestler was totally merited and had a great bout with him in the ring. I am looking forward to facing him again on the mats when next in Manchester.

Met John recently who I found to be a friendly chatty man.
We had a good few hours on his mats doing subs and give n take...
It was a pleasure to meet him..
met steve at mine after chatting for some time he is not a big guy but as some of is recomendations say doint be fooled he is like a pocket rocket very strong and fit and knows far more of wrestling than he says and both on and off the mat a very nice guy to spend time with and i hope that we meet again
You know when a guy is a serious wrestler.
It’s the point where you have him in full guard and actually does something with your legs.
It’s also the point where you are having some fun pro photos taken, holding him in a fig4 leglock and he ends the photo session showing how to escape a real figure 4, Ouch ! Is all I can say about that one.
On both occasions the other wrestler was John1953.
John is a seriously good wrestler who doesn’t take himself as seriously as many guys out there (thank goodness!)
That’s so refreshing and it’s great to wrestle and learn from him.
He’s appropriate, direct, very friendly, really helpful and incredibly approachable
I TOTALLY recommend meeting, learning from and wrestling John1953.
met mike at my group meeting in manchester 10th december 2016 after chatting for some time this was 3rd time lucky as twice i could not meet due to bad ankle probs anyway mike is a much bigger than me but a very nice guy both on and off the mats we did not get long enough to wrestle as we were both busy but he is very good and safe and sane and wood recomend him to all im looking forward to next time thanks mike

Met with John at his famous meeting at pippa's.
John adapted to my level and I had a great time wrestling with him on the mats. A nice guy and gentleman, we enjoyed ourselves while he was putting constant pressure on me. I'd recommend him (but does he really need any recommendation from a newbie?).
Looking forward to some more mat action with him.
i met fabriec at my own group meet at pippers a lovely man easy to talk to and very very fit looks great in his gear yes he is very good at boxing and happy to show them the sport but he says he is not very good at wrestling thats not the case one jot he is good as i well found out we wrestled for over half an hour and was pure joy if you get the chance to meet him you woint be disapointed so doint miss out i wood recomend him to all boxers or wrestlers i caint wait to meet him again meny thanks fabrice

I met Leglocklover and John1953 for a session in Manchester this week. Both respected that I was finding my way back into wrestling, but nevertheless also put me in some challenging holds, giving me the opportunity of working out how to escape from them and also to test how high my pain threshold was. They are both extremely skillful wrestlers and I wouldn't say no to a repeat session with either of them. They are also both tremendous, friendly blokes. Highly recommended. Many thanks.

This match wasn't the walk in the park I expected, John is a pocket rocket whose strength and experience I underestimated, don't make the same mistake. He had me submitting much sooner than I had hoped. That aside he is a gentlemen out of the ring and has left me wanting more.

John is one of the stalwarts of the British wrestling scene. He organises one of the regular Saturday meetings at Pippas in Manchester. I for one one always enjoy attending these & would recommend them to other people, much safer & more reliable than meeting strangers in a hotel, more space & Pippas is totally private. You get a good mix of British & foreign wrestlers all shapes & sizes, in a welcoming & attitude free environment.
John is really nice friendly guy who goes out of his way to make sure you have a good time at his events. As a wrestler he is fit & strong very wiry & agile. he reminds me me of some of the really tough lightweights you used to see on World of sport years ago Alan Sargent, Jeff Kaye at al.
We have known each other for quite a while , but have never fought till yesterday, partly because to honest I thought he look ed the sort of fast agile lightweight, who would slip a nasty & very painful sub on in second, but really enjoyed our match, def recommend
WELL WAT CAN I SAY ABOUT DAVID IVE KNOWN HIM NOW FOR OVER 2 YEARS NOW AS HE ATTENDS MOST GROUP MEETS AND HE GOS OUT OF IS WAY TO DO SO AS I LIVES IN NORTH YORKSHIRE DAVID IS ONE HELL OF A NICE GUY TO NO AND SPEND TIME WITH I DOINT NO WHY ITS TAKEN SO LONG AS TO US WRESTLING EACH OTHER UNTILL TODAY WHEN HE ASKED ME TO DO SO YES HE IS A BIG GUY ALL 19 STONE OF HIM BUT I ENJOYED WRESTLING HIM EVEN IF IT WAS SHORT BUT NOW ILL BE MAKING DAM SURE WE WILL WRESTLE AGAIN OFF THE MATS YOU WOINT FIND A NICER GUY ON THE MATS YES YOU GET A GOOD WORK OUT BUT HE WILL ADAPT TO YOU LEVEL SO DOINT BE AFAID BY HIS SIZE YES HE IS A VERY GOOD PRO WRESTLER BUT ALSO A GOOD SUB AND I WOOD RECOMEND HIM TO ALL DOINT MISS OUT GUYS YOU WOINT REGRET IT ONE BIT I WOINT CHEERS DAVID
very strong and nice guy with tight holds in tight singlets. I would recommend him highly to everybody here.
John is a great wrestler who was able to tone things down ro my level so i was able to enjoy things.He was also able to give out some tips that was very much appreciated he is a nice guy and a good host i look forward to meeting again soon
Meet at the Langley Mill meet in December and although I had the size and weight advantage, I certainly didn't get it all my own way and really enjoyed my time on the mats and off, great guy to chat with, looking forward to our next meet.

05/07/2015: Hugely experienced and deceptively strong, my hopes for a gentleish warm down match at the end of a great but tiring Grapevine meet at Pippa's were to be frustrated as the master showed me that he's not to be underestimated! His scissors in particular were amazingly powerful and it was only the unfair advantage of my extra bulk that kept it from being a squash match. Very educational in other words! A friendly, funny, welcoming bloke off the mats and a safe and sane wrestler, John1953 is a British wrestling legend for a reason and he comes highly recommended.
10/10/2015: Was pleased to have John1953 take a break from his organizing duties at the OWG meet at Pippa's to give me a rematch. Again my bulk kept me out of trouble but again this is not a wrestler to underestimate---very strong and very experienced, if you relax with him you're toast! Hopefully many more grapples to come.
i met with craig at a group meeting at pippers and wat a warm freindly guy alot bigger than myself so i new it was not going to be easy for me and it was hard going but was a joy to wrestle this guy very safe and sane and i wood recomend him to all you woint regret it and i look forward to more action with him

A very good enjoyable meet.

Met John at Pippas again but we got time for the mats this time. This guys great to wrestle - how flexible is he?! I don't have a great range of holds and he just kept bending out of them so it was a constant challenge to thing next steps! And don't be put off by his apparently small frame - his determination is more than a compensation. Safe and sane through our short bout - a longer one is in order next time. An interesting guy off the mats with his anecdotes, he also puts a lot into the wrestling scene. Definitely one to meet.

Good to finally wrestle with John at Pippas. He is a strong fellow and very flexible so found I was putting a lot of effort into holds which were not having any effect. John advised making small changes to holds in response to different body types - great guy to chat to and gain from his wealth of experience. Looking forward to meeting up again.

John really enjoys his wrestling, and now organises events to help others enjoy it too. It was a real pleasure to finally get to wrestle him, after previously chatting at one or two meetings. Despite my obvious weight advantage, John gave a good account of himself, and we had a good session which we both got plenty out of. I hope to have many more matches with him in the future.

John is a generous gentleman on and off the mat. He still welcomed me despite of the time limit, and was willing to demonstrate some submission holds letting me practice on him even though I was not in the condition of wrestling and a bit thick to understand those holds. Furthermore, he gave me a pair of wrestling boots encouraging me to continue wrestling! Thx for your encouragement and the boots, John. Hopefully next time we will have a longer session. Sun x

Don't be put off by his age, sure he has forgotten more about wrestling than I will ever know. If you get the chance, give him a go, highly recommended for a wrestle and good company.

12:04:14 John and I met at Pippa's during an April group meet. I'm used to having to wrestle guys bigger and heavier than me so it makes a refreshing change for me to match up with a lighter guy and on this occasion John was slightly disadvantaged; even though I try hard not to use my extra weight it's always there in the last resort. We had a good and enjoyable match which wasn't quite as easy (for me) as, the more experienced, John makes it sound. A nice guy off the mats too - happy to recommend and to meet again.

John really knows his stuff, he's very difficult to get a submission out of - even when his arm is doubled over. Don't be lured in to a false sense of security though he'll easily turn around the pushover pretense and having you submit in no time.

JOHN1953 is recommended by LdnGrapple
I met John recently (again) for a short match up ... He is an old timer who certainly knows how to put someone through their paces.
John's very flexible and technical, deceptively strong and helped me learn a good few things. John's also straightforward, polite etc., I look forward to learning lots more from him..

Friendly and hospitable guy. Had a good 2 hour+ 'evens' wrestle with him, even though he was quite wrestled out this week having fought at least 12 other guys! Even so, he showed that he clearly has an impressive 'fight-to-weight ratio' and a high skill level. Looking forward to trying him out at full throttle!

Met John at short notice last week, he is a totally reliable sound guy. Can't say i ever felt so immediately relaxed as i was when I first met John. It was as if I had known him for years. John has a great mat room where we had a good long session. I couldnt believe that he repelled my grapevine submission hold, his legs are so strong. He has a great athletic body and a true fun guy to wrestle. Well look forward to the next time.

Met this cheeky monkey for the first time last night. I thought he would be a walk over with there being such a big weight difference, but I could not have been more wrong. He is a feisty character and we started bare chested as soon as I walked through the door, ended up having a great tussle for a few hours in his mat room. John's a great guy, and I would recommend him to wrestlers big and small. Look forward to my next visit soon John.

John is a lovely guy, I had a great day with him, he looks great in the gear, and is an excellent host, we are the same age, size and weight and he's a fit guy, we wrestled for hours and he just comes back for more, we lost count of the score but it doesn't matter it was so much fun! I'd recommend him to anyone who wants to be competitive with a lightweight guy, and I will deff go back for another match, he is now another much valued friend, thanks mate.
