One of my very favorite guys to wrestle among all sites. Also one of my first ever and toughest and funnest. He’s all that and more. Great grappling skills and stamina. Great set up to roll comfortably and wonderful to hang out with after the match. Always a treat , can’t wait to go at him again soon. Nyc Wrestlefest 2019 maybe? I hope so, highly recommended!

This guy is a tank! Strong and skilled, he is so much fun to roll with. I remember him crushing me. But I had a blast and would do it again. If you have the opportunity, meet him. I'm sure you will have a good match!

Luis is my great friend and grappling partner of many years and wrestling him is my favorite thing to do in life. I love testing myself against him, and no one makes me want to fight harder or struggle more (even in the face of certain defeat). He has a high technical level in jiu-jitsu, having trained with some of the best, and he can use it to devastating effect on the mat. Every match is grueling and sweaty. Whether you enjoy wrestling for the competition, or the suffering, or both, Luis is the perfect opponent to give you everything you crave. I dare you to wrestle him!

I have been wrestling Steve since I moved to NYC in 2001. We have had countless matches and each time we meet that match becomes my favorite. He has a beautifully muscular body and he wrestles with energy and determination. There is something about him that makes me more aggressive and more determined not just to get multiple submissions but to dole out as much punishment as I want in the process, delaying the submission, getting him just about to tap and easing up just to make him suffer some more. I've enjoyed my matches with almost all my opponents but Steve is my favorite and my friend of more than 17 years. If you get the chance to wrestle Steve, do it. If you can beat him, take the time to enjoy it!

NYCgrappler and I have been wanting to have at each other for the longest time. We finally had the chance. When we first faced each other, there wasn't any time for any polite hello's; We were immediately locked up! If you like hard, aggressive wrestling, this guy is definitely for you. He's skilled, strong and definitely knows what he's doing. He's also no slouch when it comes to getting it back. We literally ran the gambit from technical grappling to seriously all out brawling. It's been a pretty long time since I've had such an intense, aggressive fight. The 2-3 hours literally flew by. I've found a great rival who I plan on fighting every time I can. If you want a strong, technical grappler who also likes to brawl, then this is your guy. When he's not in battle mode, NYCgrappler is totally fun to hang around with as well. I'm so glad we met. This guy is just plain fun! RECOMMEND RECOMMEND RECOMMEND RECOMMEND

Finally! After years of talking and missed opportunities we finally met up. It was disappointing.....that we had not met up sooner. It was so much fun to battle this guy. Great body, very aggressive, super mouthy, and very very tough. We had a long hard fought match and then hung out like old friends. If you get the chance, meet him. He will wrestle at any intensity you like. You will love fighting this guy and will regret not having done so sooner!

This guy got me into wrestling when I was young (34), slim (190#) and totally new. He inspired me to get started in BJJ. He wasn't my first match but he made me love the sport. (Thanks old friend).

I remember our last match being a much closer battle than my opponent may recall. This guy is the total package, looks, body, attitude and legit skills. His prowess on the mats required me to bring my A game, and be both of us simply refused to quit. A beast while we were locked up and a gentleman afterwards, I like to be able to call my friend. Meet this guy if you get the chance. One of the best you'll get the chance to tangle with.

Went to Luis' place in Brooklyn and for more than a hour and a half, there was sweat, a lot of grrrrr, a lot of toughness, but neither of us was backing down. But totally, it was both competitive and fun. Awesome host, but a lot of strength and aggressive. I recommend to anyone looking for a match. Don't pass him by.

Met this beast a few years ago. He crushed me! It was awesome to find myself outweighed, outmatched and outwitted by this kid. I fought as hard as I could and had a great time. I look forward to a rematch. Next time he's going down! Met him if you get the chance and make sure you bring dress socks.

Update 2/25 /17 after a long time I finally got to reconnect with this amazing fighter. We had a hard time getting the room ready because we kept attacking each other. But once we had it all broken down we quickly stripped into briefs and without a word we jumped each other. I used my thick muscle build to take him down on his back and punch him and he used his awesome skills to slowly and methodically keep me in his guard and take away my arsenal of weapons. Then when he got a good position he springs his trap of explosive power placed exactly where it needed to be to make me give up. I did get him a few times but it was more to do with luck and punches then grappling skills. Nycgrappler is supwe fighter that is even more amazing off the mats. I look forward to our next intense battle and more cool times after. Nothing but good things to say about this man.

We battled again yesterday, 2/25/17, after years of not meeting up. He has packed on tons of muscle which he uses to his advantage. He is aggressive and punches his way out of any hold you have him in (if you agree to striking). I got him a few times but it was hard work! Off the mats he's super nice. We will be battling regularly.

Rematch - February 2016 - The only MF/Global fighter to beat me this decade is Luis, a 6-1 chess match here at my Brooklyn condo over three years ago. Today, we met again for the long-awaited rematch, surely another chess match between two skilled grapplers. Despite maintaining the full or side mount position throughout the two hour match, I could not break Luis' superb technical defenses and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw. He is clearly NY's best under-200# grappler! Quite ironically, my only sub was a kimura from the bottom/guard position, and his lone sub was a choke from his lone mount! Such is the joy, and frustration, of fighting such a superb martial artist like Luis! Off the mats, one of the finest gentlemen I have ever met, with a unique sense of compassion and concern for family and friends. I look forward to our next chess match, on his home turf, this summer!

First Match - November 2012 - Luis and I wrestled earlier today and had a fantastic match. He is skilled, strong, and tenacious. It began as a real "chess match", but he soon racked off four straight submissions before I finally got an arm bar submission on him. Since he left his wrestling shorts at my condo, I was thinking of lying and claiming them as my trophy! But in truth, he beat me 6-1. We both had such a great time, that we've already scheduled the rematch for April. He's also a fine gentleman who can adjust to beginners, or ramp it up for highly contested "chess matches". I highly recommend him for wrestlers of all abilities!

Rematch Feb 2016
Everything I said before about this man is truer Han ever. He's tough, great body, great attitude and so much fun to grapple. i can't wait for the next match! This note is short but I can't recommend this guy more! If you get the chance meet him! You will regret that you had not met him before.

Skills? Check! Strength? Check! Stamina? Check! Amazing body that makes never want to look at a carb again? Check! And he's fun! This guy has it all. We had a really tough match and as soon as it was over I was asking for a rematch. If you get the chance to wrestle him, don't miss it. You won't regret it!

NYCgrappler is a great guy to wrestle, very skilled and can work with opponents of varying skill levels from beginner to advanced. We've been wrestling since 2002 and he is a good friend as well as a wrestling opponent who won't disappoint.
If you're an experienced submission wrestler, you'll have a great match, and if you need to brush up on your arm bars then he's your man too. :)
