Sorry I deleted this in error Alex is a true gent very patient when we wrestled a true genuine guy highly recommended .
UK Alex is recommended by The Enigma
Alex is a big solid fella, particularly below the waist. I imagine if we did stand up he may have had more of a chance, but against these big men you just have to get them down early and keep working them until they can't carry on. He kept going for longer than I expected though so had to work hard to keep him down. Nice fella.

It has been some time since Dave and I grappled. He owned me last time and he has beefed up since then, so you can imagine how I, trying to get back into wrestling after quite some time, was completely at his mercy. He was particularly good at giving me moments of hope throughout our wrestle, though if I thought i was close to getting the better of him, he would turn the tables quickly and easily. Watch out Dave, you've gymspired me. Hopefully not such a long gap next time...
Alex is een sportieve enthousiaste worstelaar die niet snel opgeeft.
Hij is leergierig en probeert van elke uitdager een nieuwe techniek te leren. Bovenal is hij een erg prettig mens op en buiten de mat.
Fit, strong and skilled wrestler. I really enjoyed rolling with, and getting to know armybob this afternoon. Friendly and safe opponent. I am already aching and know I will feel it bady in the morning! Definitely would like to wrestle him again though. Thank you!
One of my favourite wrestles. Definitely one of the friendliest guys on here, with a great sense of humour too. I don't think I can recommend highly enough! Looking forward to doing it again :)

A great meet with this young fella. A determined submission fighter with good instinct. An enthusiastic pro wrestler keen to develop knowledge of moves and holds. And a nice fella too. Look forward to our rematch!
Alex is passionate about his wrestling and has bags of enthusiasm. He is a better wrestler than he gives himself credit for and knows a fair few holds. I enjoyed wrestling him and despite him being a big strong lad, managed to wear him down :). Glad to see is progressing well and well worth a meet.
Matt was the first fella I wrestled when getting into this all. It was an intense matchup in a grimey and unsuitable venue but I found Matt to be strong and relentless and I've not ached so much after a match since.
I'm grateful to Matt for taking the risk to travel to me - having had no recommendations at that point! Friendly chap off the matts too and I hope to wrestle him again soon (on my proper mats!)

Strong,solid guy who is reliable and turns up, as agreed and ready to go. He now is doing some training so when you combine that with his build,strength and stamina he has the makings of a formidable opponent. He had been away so jetlag was at play but look forward to meeting him again on the mats. Happy to recommend. Since hooked up again and this time got a pop at him on his mats. Tough guy with some tough moves and a lot of spirit. He can dish it out and take it and does so with a pleasant and determined manner. Cooks well too. Even more highly recommended and that's not just cos he fed me!

Allan is a strong and skilled wrestler, friendly and genuine guy and great host. We have had a couple of bouts and he is totally reliable. Allan uses his whole body against his opponent with the ability to be rough or adjust to fight someone with jet lag(!) 100% safe and sane and I look forward to future bouts with this man.
Had a great match with Alex. Strong, determined and for someone who has just started, knows quite a few holds. Nice guy on and off the mat. Really easy to talk to. Defiantly would like to meet up again. Hopefully next time we can have a longer bout.
Strong guy who has a good arsenal of techniques that he combines with good positioning to make for a tough challenge. Definitely had the edge on me! He's thoroughly safe and sane and someone that I hope to wrestle again soon!
Off the mats, he's funny and interesting to talk to about a wide range of stuff... the sort of person you could have a pint with... if he didn't have to rush off to work! ;-)
Alex was introduced to me as a novice, he may well believe that himself but the minute you lock up you know that the guy's got the body mass, density, strength and determination to give you a good run for your money. If we weren't both so sweaty I think that it would have been a lot tougher to get a tap out and he certainly is a quick learner! Safe, sane but with a very determined look in his eye. We will definitely meet again - I'll make sure of it!
The man's a machine!! Made of steel and very strong but also extremely safe and sane with it. We had the kind of grapple that raises my aspirations while reminding me of my place. Thoroughly enjoyed his approach and would definitely like to grapple this guy again! Cheers!

He is a great guy to wrestle and knows his stuff! Felt like we could explore a lot of holds without being worried about excessive pain. Def was aching the next few days!
UK Alex is recommended by grappler2112
A very keen, enthusiastic wrestler who is steadily growing in skill and confidence. I thoroughily enjoyed meeting up with Alex recently. Interesting and intelligent guy off the mats and great company over a beer! He's strong, energetic and getting fitter ...... watch out!!

John is a safe and sane skilled grappler who knows how to handle himself. He's 100% respectful of limits and ability of opponent, also patient and kind as a talented coach. Genuine nice guy who is great to know off the mats as well as on! Was a complete pleasure to meet and I look forward to many more.
A genuine guy well worth meeting, fun on the mats , and to chat too after. New to the world of wrestling, but makes up with it with energy and enthusiasm, and a fast learner so be careful.He will soon be submitting us all!
