Profile of croppedinely (16)
Hello lads - big friendly gay fella with a background in competitive judo looking to get more experience in wrestling, and get fitter in the process. Preference for bigger guys but not set in stone, although not really interested in guys who just want to be worked over. Happily partnered with permission to play if the chemistry is right, but never meet with the expectation it will go anywhere other than a wrestle!

Mar 18. Met Stu for the first. A judo background and a beast on the mats. He take no prisoners if he gets the chance. A tough guy to wrestle yet a lot of fun. Great guy and pleasure to meet. Top guy to meet

Wrestled Mark at a group meet. A short time on the mats, but sweaty, intense and incredibly enjoyable. Strong, skilled,competitive and confident. Soaked up a lot of punishment, waited for his opportunity and executed it ruthlessly when given the chance! Off the mats he is the life and soul. Highly recommended - get him on the mats if you haven’t already lads. You won’t be disappointed.

Loved having the opportunity to wrestle croppedinely this weekend. Strong, beefy, guy who looks very imposing to square up against on the mats. Totally sorted guy to wrestle, with excellent mats skills who also offered some handy tips to ruffle up opponents. Definitely be great to wrestle again. Really friendly, interesting, sorted guy to meet…totally recommended.

Les is a gent, pure and simple. Having missed out on rolling with him at a previous group meet, I made sure that he was number one on the list at the latest event we both attended - and was very happy that I’d made him a priority this time. He’s a strong fella, with a fierce competitive streak when he’s on the mats. Good skill level. Able to soak up a lot of punishment, and even when you think you’ve got the upper hand you can guarantee he’s looking for an opportunity to turn the tables on you! When the grappling is done, he is the best company you could hope for. Charming, interesting and unassuming. Was a genuine pleasure, Les, hope we can do it again soon.
musclneck is recommended by croppedinely
A gentleman and true wrestling enthusiast. He's a gracious host, an excellent coach and epitomises the old-school wrestling style that many on this site, including me, aspire to. Whether you're sparring on the mat or in conversation, be assured that this giant is going to do his best to work you over - and you'll enjoy every moment of it. Effortlessly charming and brutally powerful. What a combination, I salute you, sir 😀.

After years of messaging and location difficulties, I finally managed to lock up with this skilled, safe and sane wrestler this weekend. "Croppedinely" is a solid, respectful of whatever your level of experience is and can put the pressure on or off whenever he feels fit. If you haven't met him yet. I suggest you challenge him right away as "Croppedinely" goes straight into my top "wanna wrestle again wrestlers". I just cant wait for our next lock up. Thanks Mate.

Having 'flirted' for years Phil and I finally locked up last weekend. A motormouth on the mat it was a real heel's joy to work him over - and he can take a large amount of punishment. We fought each other to a very sweaty standstill. He's a big strong lad, so not to be underestimated, and I'd be happy to roll with him again, and see what shades of purple I can get him to go next time! Safe, sane and highly recommended!

Had the chance to meet one of the most skilled grapplers I have ever met! Was scared he’d kill me - but he is such a nice gentleman. He really takes care of his opponents on the mats, and relies simply on brilliant technique and just the right amount of strength.
Off the mats he is very good company, very sociable and intelligent. I could learn loads from this guy, both on and off the mats, and am looking forward to next time! Highly recommended, thanks for a great roll.

At some point us older boys have to make way for the new guard, and this young man will soon become a force to be reckoned with as his experience catches up with his talent and enthusiasm. A very quick learner, don't let the fact that he is young and light fool you. He's fast, strong and very flexible. The amount of punishment he can take has to be seen to be believed, and his skill level, which is higher than his modesty will let him admit, is on a rapid rise! He's charming on and off the mats, and one of the most interesting younger men I've had the pleasure to meet in a long time. He's packed a lot into his relatively short life, and his conversation is as engaging as his wrestling. You must fight this young Norse if you have the chance.

Big, strong and exceptionally skilled wrestler. Great personality on and off the mats. Great fun, highly recommended.

The chance to fight with a black belt judo player doesn't come along often.
Big fella, heavy and strong, with large thighs that look good in his gi bottoms... And happy to fight in a gi too. All of that scores well with me.
Great couple of hours mauling... No bitching about injuries or rules (have had couple of those recently and they're dull), just fight, submit, reset and go again... Excellent.
Could have done that all day...

After years of intermittent chatting both on here and other sites we finally had a fantastic, sweaty, relentless bout this afternoon, in an excellent setting, which definitely blew the cobwebs away. Strong as an ox, quick and a superb technician this fella is the real deal and has re-awakened the competitive judoka in me. I would step back onto the mats with him, in whatever kit he wanted, in a heartbeat, and am looking forwards to round two. No fussing. No airs and graces. Rough and aggressive. I'm inspired.
He is also sexy af, and a gentleman off the mats - which are great bonuses.

Another round with the Grantham Grappler did not disappoint. Andy is a big hunk of a man who knows his way around a scrap. He's as strong as an ox, and won't submit easily. Plus he's got bags of stamina. You will scrap for hours, and be totally spent at the end of it. You'll need to be tough to take this brute on lads, but he is well worth it. The stare will strike fear into the most hardened fighters. You really must give this man a go - if you don't like wrestling grappleguy66 you simply don't like wrestling.
Andy is a big strong masculine fella who enjoys the physicality of wrestling and has technique to complement his raw power. He is an absolute diamond both on and off the mat, and I would recommend him highly to anyone interested in the sport. Socially he is gentle, witty, intelligent and charming. When wrestling he is a brute. What more could you ask for lads?

I met Stu on Friday and will be buzzing for weeks from the afternoon spent with this top guy!
I knew he was good and expected a great fight, but it was just so much better than anything I had thought about. I loved every minute!
Off the mats, a very entertaining, interesting fun bloke.
As I didn't get any subs, I will just top trump him with an AA++ ;)

Al is a tough little f****r. Bags of stamina, high pain threshold and incredibly flexible. We grappled for a good couple of hours, and I enjoyed it immensely. He's still fairly new to the game, but he's got the fight and the flair to become a force to be reckoned with. Highly recommended. Would step back onto the mats with him without hesitation, and would expect to have my work cut out as he gains experience. Off the mats he is softly-spoken, charming and incredibly good company. He gets an A* from me.

I think Stu is probably the best all-round wrestler on the UK scene. Certainly he's the best I've met, in any case. He's got technique, strength, fitness, controlled aggression and stamina - and can step it up or down to suit the match and his opponent. Off the mats, he's an absolute gent - the sort of bloke who always has something interesting and funny to say. 100% recommendation. If you get the chance to wrestle Stu, take it.

The first time I met Daz was a brutal encounter which left me with an (accidentally inflicted) shiner. It was a fantastic grapple. He is a great slab of aggression and power on the mats, with raw strength in spades and I would highly recommend him for anyone interested in taking on a big powerful man. He is completely safe and sane when fighting, and off the mats a softly-spoken, articulate and a genuine pleasure to spend time with. If you get the invite, wrestle Daz - you won't be disappointed!

I met Stu at a group meet and only had a short bout with him, but it was fun and challenging. Stu is very strong and skilled, I managed to win this time but it was a close thing. Off the mats he's a gentle giant, very friendly, articulate and easy going. A great competitor and well worth meeting. Looking forward to the rematch!

Stew ticks all the boxes. Strong, fit, technical wrestler with a hint of the bad boy. Dont be put off by his size and ability, he is an ideal and considerate opponent. Easy going and amusing off the mats. If you have the chance wrestle this man, simply a great afternoon !

Had a very nice afternoon with Mark in Cambridgeshire. Excellent conversation off the mats, and great intense scraps on the mats. Multiple painful submissions on both sides, Mark has a great upper body strength, good stamina, excellent defence. A real seasoned fighter with a sense of modesty belying his ability. If you want a good rough workout which is also respectful of limits Mark is the man for you. We may have ended up with a split lip and a black eye, but these things happen when the fights get intense and round 2 is definitely on the cards.

First time I met Stew you notice an impressive broad, muscled body ideal for wrestling. So he is a strong man and knows how to use his strength. He has a really big strong chest, his body can take a lot of hammer but he is fit and strong so can bounce back, so dont be thinking your going to be beating this guy in a hurry, that would be a serious mistake. Having met several times I can say he is friendly guy with good enthusiasm for wrestling so well worth a meet !

Carl is a gracious host and a real pro-style wrestling enthusiast. He is an excellent heel in the old-school style (think a pocket-size giant haystacks). He has a lot of stamina and an agility which belies his impressive bulk. Safe and sane, respectful of limits and more than happy to work over willing jobbers, Carl is well worth a wrestle. There is no hidden agenda with this man - give him a go guys, you won't be disappointed, and you will learn a thing or two.

Stew is a fantastically skilled judoka who certainly made me think about comp submission wrestling. Very relaxed he effortlessly switches from one hold to another and although I found myself on the backfoot most of the time I really enjoyed my tussle with this big strong guy. Even got some subs out of him but he's an incredible talent and anyone serious in comp sub should meet him. He looks ace in his gear and off the mats a lot of fun and great to chat too as well. Will I wrestle him again ? Always :-)
Perseus is recommended by croppedinely
Petros has a great physicality as a wrestler, bags of endurance and a sharp wrestling mind. We had a great competitive submission bout which lasted a good couple of hours with hard fought, but multiple, submissions throughout. I would highly recommend him to any fighter, regardless of skill level, as he will offer a great introduction to the sport for novices and give those of us who are a little more seasoned something to think about too! Off the mat he is charming company and very good-humoured. He is also an incredibly gracious host. Will I fight him again. Absolutely. Will I beat him again. Maybe :).

I met Stew today, after reading his other recommendations! He outshone them all! Reliable, safe and sane. Very skilled, strong wrestler, willing to share his expertise on mats. Off the mats, a fun guy with interesting conversation. I look forward to our next match up, even if I get thoroughly beaten again!

Paul is a gentleman, and it was nice to have a competitive bout with a bigger man. Strong and tenacious on the mat with bags of endurance, he will give you a good workout! He is warm and charming off the mat too - looking forwards to the next round.

Had the fortune of wrestling Stew he is one strong and skilled Wrestler who taught me a thing or two about Wrestling. Great guy to meet and wrestle and a top fella to boot roll on round 2. Finally got to wrestle stew again and to say i was mauled is a understatement lol. Stew is a brillant wrestle and wrestler strong as a ox and skilled loved every minute of a second match even managed to gain a couple of subs. a great guy and a gentleman off the mats.

Met Gaz today and we had a good couple of hours scrapping. He is an excellent host, and has bags of stamina - no matter how hard, and how often I put him down he kept coming back for more. Strong and determined he will definitely give you a good scrap - off the mats he is charming. An absolute gent and I'm looking forwards to the second match
2. Second bout with Gaz did not disappoint. Great upper body strength and tenacity, loads of stamina - a good solid fight. Will definitely meet up again!
