wrestled this guy a good while ago and can still remember it! Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of room (or maybe fortunately for me??) but it was still a good match even though I got destroyed! Hope I made him work for the subs a wee bit.
It'll be good to arrange a few more rounds with this expert and learn the craft more!
YoungScot is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Had the privilege of wrestling this tough man recently. I had been looking forward to taking him on for a while now, and I was not disappointed. He is big, strong, and very tough. I really loved his never-give-up attitude. Just tons of fun to get rough with, and he can dish it out as well as take it. He's very safe and sane. And watch out for his mouth ... he is a cheeky bastard. Highly reccomend! Looking forward to a rematch.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Proboy71
Wrestled this guy for the first time yesterday. He was awesome on the mats. A formidable technician and a great guy. He was more than happy to wrestle at my level and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon. Hoping Round 2 won't be too far in the future. Cannot recommend this guy highly enough!
Proboy71 is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I met Proboy for the first time last week, we immediately hit it off. Had a great afternoon on his mats, he's a tough guy, and knows how to give and take scissors of all kinds. A really pleasant man on and off the mats, and he was kind enough to make me a tasty lunch after we were done beating each other up! Round 2 coming soon.

What is there to say about this great warrior brother .
Met a couple years ago (2013) for a good outdoor battle and then a few weeks later a good long few days to really see and test the skills of this awesome wrestler.
Always a couple of steps ahead of you on the mat makes for some good long battles. Some real powerful scissors and a good test to a grapevine.
Great guy off the mat and real good soul.
Looking forward to renewing our series on one of my trips up to Edinburgh.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by makeyoutap
This man is a true grappling warrior. His technical ability is extremely solid, coupled with power. Wrestling him is like getting a clinic in grappling. Don't let his talent keep you away. He is very mindful of his opponent, ensuring they have a good match and he adjusts appropriately. One of the kindest men I have ever meet. Not only did I meet an awesome wrestler, but a great friend. Highly recommend!
makeyoutap is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I put my passion for wrestling and the men who do it out there to meet men like him. He is a fighter and a warrior in every sense of the word. Not only is this athlete built like a brick s***house, he is a genuinely humble, confident man with a fierce passion for wrestling. A proper gentleman, easy to roll with, no ego, eager to get respectfully rough with his opponent. A privilege to connect with him as both a fighter and a friend. Don't pass him up! Comes with my highest recommendation.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Hairylad
Surprise meeting with LeithSubProGrappler was amazing....very strong and very talented. Obviously knows his stuff but is a true gent that will spend time showing you moves. Highly recommended!!
Hairylad is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Had an opportunity to meet with hairylad out of the blue, and what a treat it was! He's a strong, aggressive, courageous wrestler. Definitely has that wrestling passion that leaves you wanting more! Highly reccomend, looking forward to wrestling this man again. Don't pass him up!!
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Jay219
Met with Leith, Geoffessex and Pj40 for a tag match in quite possibly the hottest possible heats you could imagine.
Despite the heat, it was great to tangle up with Leith. He is highly strong and skilled in both wrestle and Brazilian jujitsu. Each lock up was incredibly intense and such a blast. The tag match consisted of Leith and Geoff on one team and myself and Pj on the other. Although Geoff gave me and Pj a challenge, it was Leith that provides the power house of struggles when he tags in, with the only time he fell was when all 3 of us ganged up to take him down! Such a blast! Loved every second of it and would most definitely love to do it again and soon! Highly recommend meeting this guy, 10/10 oh and he looks pretty dam great in his gear ;)
Jay219 is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Had a chance to meet up with Jay at a tag event last month, during the middle of the heat wave! Talk about sweaty fun!!
It was me and GeoffEssex against Jay and Pj40. Right from the first lock up, it was clear that Jay was not exactly a beginner. He was strong, fit, skilled, cool as a cucumber despite the heat and my attacks. Had a total blast grappling with this strong and studly man. And, he looks amazing in a singlet, and even better bare-chested.
I had to work hard to keep myself from being trapped, despite my weight and size advantage. Total pleasure grappling with Jay, and looking forward to round two as soon as possible.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Sir David
Met JP today for a taster of a pro match between the 2 of us. This guy is big but we both had a great time and shame space was restricted. Next time we're aiming for our big match in the ring, and man the ring is going to be shaking.
Here's to round 2 JP.
Sir David is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Sir David and I have been corresponding for a while, and it was great to finally meet him on my mats. Wasn't the ring match we were hoping for, didn't have enough space, but was enough to get a good grapple in. Enjoyed it, looking forward to a proper ring match.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by secondsout
It was an absolute pleasure to meet JP, totally chilled guy who instantly exudes something special. Extremely impressive guy to wrestle. Knowledgeable, skilled grappler, who has ability to pitch a match to meet the capabilities and expectations of his opponents. Definitely hope to have the opportunity to take him on again sometime soon. Absolutely recommended.
secondsout is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I met Les today for the first time, and had an amazing time. Les is a good wrestler, solidly put together, and a real pleasure to roll on the mats with. He is very strong, very friendly, and very knowledgeable. Completely safe and sane. We had a great tussle, and tried a bit of give and take and a bit of sub. I can't wait to wrestle Les again, and look forward to many more great matches with him!
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by nwprograppler
There are three words to describe this guy - Tough, strong and stubborn!
We initially did a 2 Vs 1 against Essex and it was great fun working together to extract as much pain out of him as possible. We were inventive with the holds and worked well as a team.
It would have been rude not to have had a 1:1 match and this is where I really felt this guys strength. He has thighs that are as thick as tree trunks and he knows how to use them as I found out!!! He took the time to show me some of his signature holds as I did him.
Off the mats this guy is super friendly and great company to be around and I know there will be another match up in the near future!
nwprograppler is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I met this tough heel waiting for the ring to open up at Grove Park. My first impression was man, did he ever look the part. Big, powerful, scruffy, mean. Jason Stantham look alike was my first reaction. The three of us got into the ring, and then over the course of four hours, preceded to double team Mark from pillar to post. It was instantly clear that the big man knew his pro! Together, he and I doubled teamed jobber boy Mark inventing new holds as we went along ... Along the way, he taught me his signature hold and helped me brush up on my pro game.
We traded a few holds back and forth as well, and I had the privilege of being on the receiving end of several of the big heel's brutal holds. Enjoyed every minute of it.
Off the mats, I found this brutal heel to be great company. He's funny and easy to be with, we shared some good food and good beer, delving into conversations about all kinds of other topics. I enjoyed the chance to meet him, and am looking forward to meeting up again! He is a definite keeper and a true gentleman, with a pleasing mix of brutality and friendliness. (:
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Squashlad
19/04/2016: A great meet with the legendary LeithSubProGrappler at the Grove Park ring that had it all (from my perspective at least!). Some fun sweaty tussling on the canvas and on the ropes; some high quality coaching generously and perceptively offered; some give-and-take wrestling perfectly pitched at my (beginner's) level; and a nice (if far too short) dose of some good old-fashioned jobber bullying! All very safely, even courteously, done, and usually with a huge grin on his face. It's not often that the enthusiastic but unskilled like me get the chance to wrestle a guy who's been described (by those who should know) as "probably the best wrestler on MeetFighters in the UK"; nor yet a guy so dedicated to his wrestling that his back tattoo is that of the Californian wrestling club that he founded and was lead coach for; but sometimes, on a glorious late spring day when you should be at work---you get lucky. No, LeithSubProGrappler's not exactly a Leith native, you won't get his accent in an Irvine Welsh novel, but everything else about him is exactly as you'd expect from his profile and recommendations: big, strong, experienced, skilled, pretty much impossible for anyone on this side of the Atlantic to beat; and also an amazingly nice guy with it. If you get the chance to wrestle him, take it! I certainly will be on every occasion that presents itself. Very highly recommended.
Squashlad is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I had a wonderful afternoon with Squashlad at Grove Park! It was a long time coming, but well worth the wait! It was a truly exceptional match. Squashlad is fit and strong, and far more skilled than he gives himself credit for. He has an impressive defense, and keeps his cool at all times. We worked up an awesome sweat, and pretty much wrestled non-stop for three hours. Enjoyed teaching him a few moves, he proved to be a quick study. And he is a tough man, well able to handle a hard wrestle. Throughout the encounter, he was inviting me to up the aggression, which I did bit by bit, and thoroughly enjoyed his ability to absorb it.
Afterwords, I thouroughly enjoyed our conversation, and found his manner to be both funny and engaging, and very easy to be with. A sincere man in all respects.
Squashlad has an absolute and inspiring passion for wrestling, and to be a better wrestler. It was a true pleasure to connect with him and share that mutual passion with each other. Eagerly awaiting ... and planning ... our rematch!

I had the chance to meet JP during his brief stay in Switzerland.
Very reliable and friendly; during the various rounds this tank version Gentlemen made me experience an unforgettable time: experience, patience and desire to fight makes JP the perfect opponent to meet on the mats.
He has the passion of the wrestler and the patience of a teacher, what to say more? Do not miss this bull!
j2047 is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I met Karim while on a holiday to Switzerland, and we had a great match. He's strong, powerful, and experienced. It was a lot of fun to take on a grappler with his strength and skill. He is fierce and aggressive, but safe and controlled.
I can't wait to get back to Switzerland for a rematch!! Don't hesitate, look up this great wrestler and set up a match with him right away!
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by full nelson 77
Had the pleasure of meeting this wrestler at a group meet in Manchester back in February when he undertook some coaching. Was great to learn some proper techniques from this very knowledgable and patient teacher. Also had a roll around on the mats after when he went easy on me!
Would highly recommend and hope we get a rematch soon.
Off the mats he's also a great guy.
full nelson 77 is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I had the privilege of meeting this man at a meet in Manchester. I was teaching a grappling class, and he was participating. Thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with him, and he let me use him as a crash test wrestling dummy a few times! After the training session, I had a chance to grapple with him, and was impressed by his aggression and determination on the mats against me. It was a real pleasure to meet and wrestle, and I'm looking forward to our rematch.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by FitScot
Well the rest of you better watch out, because thanks to the patience, the friendliness and the experience of this wrestler, I now know a couple more moves and improved my skill! LeithSubProGrappler provided me with a great wrestling session and I could tell from our bout that he has been wrestling a long time. He also took the time out from the bouts to go over a couple of moves I'd been struggling with, and he made this session an absolute pleasure. So if you are a serious bout, hit this guy up! Looking forward to meeting you again and thank you!!!
FitScot is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Before I even met FitScot in person, I could tell that he was a dedicated grappler, and I had a suspicion that he was understating his abilities. When we met last Sunday, I was proved right. He is incredibly strong, fit, with a solid wrestling base and a superb sense of balance and movement. He was relentless and aggressive, yet very safety focused. It was a pleasure to wrestle, to train, and to get to know him with a cup of coffee after. He gave me some good advice to help in setting a wrestling club as well!

I had cheked some of his vids teaching grappling, but never had thought I would have the pleasure to meet him and make him my friend . . .in the matt all you can imagine looking at his pic . . .strong like a bull, skill like a japannese sensei . .. out of the matts . . . ufff unforgatable . . .
I dont hope meet him again, because I will meet him again for sure and Im proud to call him my friend . . . please dont cross the sea again . . .

I met up with this incredible Spanish powerhouse at a meet recently! We wrestled in the ring, and it was a clash of titans. Carlos is strong as a bull, relentless, and fierce. He tries to get inside your head with his eyes and his growl. You wouldn't want to meet him on a dark alley!! We had a fantastic battle, with lots of power exchanged back and forth. He is incredibly skilled, and talented, yet he is very safe and matches his skill level to his opponents. Off the mats, he is full of energy, and great company, very funny and social. I am very much looking forward to meeting up again!! I can't recommend him highly enough.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by fightingandspirit
There is something really special about JP. Off the mats he has a heart of gold, but it is on the mats that he really comes home. He is a true wrestling machine and can clearly take on and compete with the toughest of opponents. However, he also has an innate talent to teach and really inspire rookie wrestlers to improve. To me, this is the true sign of a great fighter and friend. I cannot recommend him enough; to expert and rookie alike.
fightingandspirit is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Stephen and I have been in contact since early November, and we finally got the chance to meet and wrestle at Manchester. Thanks to Stephen for all his effort in organizing such a fantastic event! He attended the grappling class I taught, and was a keen and enthusiastic student. He's deceptively strong and extremely stubborn! Off the mats, he is bouncy with a very distinct and touching sense of humour! We've developed an amazing friendship on and off the mats, and I'm looking forward to the next time we meet up.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by eastcheshireguy
I met Leith... at a group meet where he was very kindly providing some training. He's a very knowledgeable, patient guy and explains and demonstrates everything very well allowing all to try and so get the most out of it. We then had a grapple where he let me try the things we'd covered but you know he's happily in charge - his strength and agility are great but his knowledge of moves and anticipation are second to none. Great fun to try it with though - I'm eagerly anticipating another grapple.
Lovely guy to spend time off the mats with too though with his profile name his accent took me aback initially!
100% recommend from me.
eastcheshireguy is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Had a chance to wrestle recently, and it was a great experience. Very skilled, very strong, very fit. Friendly with a great passion for wrestling. Enjoyed the match very much, and will be looking to set up a rematch as soon as! Don't pass him up.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by The Kestrel
I quite often begrudge giving away how my matches go, but it can not be helped here, JP is one hell of a wrestler and backed up the years of experience he says he has.
The guy is built like a tank, fast enough to see what is coming, knows enough to manipulate the match in his favour and strong enough to maintain it. I find it tremendously refreshing to come across a wrestler of this calibre and gain positive feedback afterwards despite him confidently claiming 3 out of 3 hard fought subs from me.
I was frequently watching him during a 2 hour training session he was giving to a group, and his enthusiasm in sharing his skills and helping others improve is fantastic.
I fully recommend this tank to anyone of any skill level - new guys will definately improve with him and experienced guys will get a hell of a match from him - 10/10
The Kestrel is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I met up with Kez at a recent wrestling event. Had a couple of submission bouts with him on the mats. Extremely impressed by his fitness, strength, skill, and sheer energy. The man is a gifted grappler, with a powerful defense that is nearly impossible to break through. If you are a looking for a fierce grapple, look no further. Friendly, safe and sane no question.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Physical
Absolutely back up what everyone has said. Have wanted to meet for a while but had no idea how skilled JP was. His coaching was brilliant, his passion for the sport infectious and most of all his Zen-like calm as he executes his moves on the mat was amazing. Can't wait to meet again and a more gentlemanly grappler you couldn't hope to meet. Highly recommended indeed.
Physical is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I'd been hoping to meet up with Nick for quite a while. It was a pleasure to train with him, and a real honor to pit my skill and strength against his on the mats. Nick is a truly genuine gentleman, and discounts his own skill as a wrestler and a teacher far too much, one of the highlights of meeting him was seeing how generously he worked with the other wrestlers. I'm eagerly looking forward to spending more time with this wrestler on the mats!
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Grapplerlad
I can only say thank you to JP for a fantastic introduction to Pippas and a group meet there. Was coached for up to nearly 2 hours by this awsome wrestler who had about 8-10 wrestlers of different abilities and skill on numerous warm ups and fight techniques. JP,s level of wrestling skill is amazing, technical and on point, he was demonstrating moves in stage and with precision my brain was filling with information constantly. I loved every second of the coaching. What a sound, genuine friendly and welcoming lad too, thank you fella my confidence and skill has moved up a notch thanks to you fighter. Hope to get to meet and be coached further by you.
Grapplerlad is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
It was a real honor to meet up with this fireball at Pippas! Immediately, you get the impression of a fit, strong, masculine, warm, friendly, fearless, bundle of pure energy. Incredibly keen, humble, and determined to grow as a wrestler in every way. The enthusiasm was infectious, and he happily volunteered to be a crash test wrestling dummy. Bursting at the seams with natural talent! I'm looking forward to our next meeting with great anticipation!!
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Lincoln Lad
Wow! What a great guy! He's built, got great technique and is a hot stud, too!
JP knows how to wrestle. He's one of those people who is always 2 or 3 steps ahead of you in a fight and no matter what you try, he's gonna win!
He's got a real wrestler's body, with incredibly strong legs - avoid his scissors - and knows how to use it.
Off the mats, JP's a real gent - polite, good company and intelligent. He's welcome on our mats anytime...
So, what's not to like. Get this guy in your calendar - now!
Lincoln Lad is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Wrestled Daz on a Saturday, travelled down from Edinburgh for the weekend.
Lots of anticipation on my end for the matchup, and man oh man, it was worth it. This man is built like a bull and he wrestles like one! Don't turn your back on him or let your guard down for one second. Fierce, determined, big and beefy, powerful, a natural wrestler's build with a natural wrestler's determination.
We had round one, then broke for lunch, then had round two.
I'm looking forward to taking him on many more times to come. First of many grapples! Highly recommend him!
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Rutland
Fortunate to meet this amazing wrestler today. And boy what a wrestler!!
He is an immensely strong and incredibly skilled wrestler, every move I tried to make was easily brushed aside. In between bouts, he was very happy showing me a few moves (very patiently :) ).
Off the mats, one of the nicest guys you could wish to spend time with. Great company! I can't recommend him highly enough.
Roll on February :). I can't wait!
Rutland is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I had the privilege of wrestling Al recently.
He will try to sell himself short, but the truth is he has a natural talent for wrestling. I completely enjoyed scrapping with him, he has a solid wrestling base which is extremely challenging to get past.
He's keen to learn and easy to teach. He has an amazing sleeper hold, and a nasty headlock so watch out!
We'll get a chance to grapple again next month, and I can't wait for round 2!
Off the mats, Al is courteous, funny, and a proper bloke. Looking forward to more time on and off the mats with him! Don't pass him by if you are looking for a great wrestle. Highly reccomend!

JP is a talented fighter with formidable strength and skill. His relaxed manner follows him to the mats and it never seems to falter.
He is punctual, polite, easy to talk with but he will put you through your paces and give you a good bout.
I hope to meet him again for another wrestling lesson and I would recommend him highly if you get the opportunity to take him on. Win, lose or draw you won't be disappointed.

Wrestled Jon last night for the first time. He kindly hosted at his home. I had an amazing time, along with another wrestler, we wrestled for hours. Jon is a fit, strong, muscled opponent. He is aggressive and fierce on the mats, with a high tolerance for pain. He would occasionally throw in some advanced moves on me, trying to catch me off guard. When I lost track of time and missed the last bus, he loaned me the taxi fare home. Very grateful! A fierce and aggressive wrestler on the mats, but a perfect gentleman off them. Looking forward to wrestling with Jon again!! Comes with my highest recommendation.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Essex
Had an awesome fun time wrestling with JP.
This guy oozes wrestling experience and is so much fun when wrestling and was very creative in our meet.
He has a fantastic Arsenal of holds and certainly knows how to put them to good use.
Did enjoy winding him up with some banter I managed to get in before he had me tapping!
I even managed a cheeky sub out of him when he wasn't expecting it, but I certainly paid the price for that!
Lovely physique on him and looks awesome in gear.
We had a great couple of hours wrestling, then it was time for dinner and alcohol...then back up to the room for round 2.
I cannot recommend this guy enough...lovely personality both on and off the mats, lovely guy to spend time with and very easy on the eye.
Im looking forward to the rematch tough guy.
Highly recommended....diamond geeza!
Essex is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
We met on Saturday, after trash talking back and forth for a few weeks.
It's a rare meet when everything you build up your expectations, and the meet itself doesn't just meet your expectations, but exceeds them!
This was one of those for sure.
We had a great wrestle, he's cheeky, and a first-class wind-up merchant. I worked hard to wrestle it outta him, but no luck!! (: He keeps coming back for more, and doesn't give in.
We stopped for dinner and drinks, then went back at it for another round. He's a great looking man, very strong for his size, and he has a solid core. Impressed me.
He's friendly and sociable, with a great personality. Enjoyed our conversations as much as the grappling.
I'm looking forward to wrestling him again!! Rematch on the cards. Wrestle him, you won't be disappointed!

Missed out on a scrap with this friendly grappler a few years back but the wait didn't make him any less of a challenge. He knows his stuff and is happy to roll with men of varying skills and experience levels. Ready to grapple, safe, hygienic and engaging as well as solidly strong: Think affable bull. Highly recommended.

Finally got a chance to wrestle Alan last night. I had a great time! He's strong and fit, and has a very nasty head-scissors. Had some great chats as well, Alan has plenty of great stories to share. We were enjoying ourselves so much, I lost track of time and missed the last bus! Ended up taking a taxi home. Well worth it. Highly recommend, looking forward to the rematch.

Marc and I met by chance in Montreal in July 2011. We were wrestling a mutual friend, and afterwards went out with a group of us for a meal. The next day, the two of us spent all afternoon wrestling. We wrestled fierce submission, and then wrestled pro style, with tons of amazing and creative holds on both our parts. Then afterwards he took me to a park overlooking the city for a meal and an amazing view. Wrestling with Marc was fierce, aggressive, creative, fun and totally natural. He is a pure gentleman and a fighter. Can't recommend him highly enough. Sincerely looking forward to the next opportunity to wrestle him again!

After years of threats and abuse JP and I met for a fight in an Edinburgh hotel on 28 November. JP was aggressive, stronger than me and much more skilled. That did not stop us having a good battle - this guy is powerful and knows how to handle himself and dominated the fight. I managed to drive a couple of hard knees into his side but later I paid the price for doing so. Battered and bruised I was outclassed by a better man. I had a superb time and can't wait for the rematch which is guaranteed to be more intense. JP is a top bloke - sorted, safe, sane and skilled. Bring on round 2 !!
Scrapmerchant 1 is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
Our first match was every bit as fierce and aggressive as I expected. This man is strong, solid, brave, and doesn't know the meaning of the word quit. We wrestled until we were both spent. Can't wait for a rematch ... what a great guy.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Ironbull
I had the pleasure of meeting JP in Edinburgh for a hotel wrestle. JP is very highly trained in relevant disciplines, certain relative to most of us in the UK and so this was a rare and valuable lesson. I felt completely safe even though I was totally outclassed, and very connected in to the session which is entirely due to JP's very supportive approach. This is a man with a passion for the game. I hope JP will remain available to those of us here who would like to raise their game and draw upon such skills. Very highly recommended. A great guy.
Ironbull is recommended by LeithSubProGrappler
I had a great wrestle with Ironbull in a hotel. He is a fit, strong man. I really enjoyed matching power with him as we tussled. He's relentless, always up for one more fall, which I was happy to oblige. Was a pleasure to pass on some technique to him. I also thoroughly enjoyed the change to speak with him off the mats. A real gentleman warrior, recommended highly.
LeithSubProGrappler is recommended by Roppa
Impossible to write the recommendation JP deserves in such a short space. I learned loads from getting to grips with him and would encourage you to try and arrange a meet. Today has been the first of many meets with a true gentleman of the sport. Total honour to have had the chance to step on the mat with him.

I met JP a couple of years ago. He is one of life's good guys and is an exceptionally skilled and strong wrestler. For our match he effortlessly toned it down to my level. If you want competitive he's your man but equally, if you want to learn he's a very good teacher. I would highly recommend him and you're missing out if you don't meet him.
