Like a competitive wrestle, but a gentler give and take session, practising moves/holds is good too. Weekdays are the only options for me at present, early evening, or maybe an afternoon if work rota allows.

duncanuk is recommended by DenverWrestler
I had a very fine competitive submission match with this very tough fit guy. He's in excellent shape (one of the fittest mid-50s guys I've met on this site) and has some good submission grappling skills. While I was able to get several submissions on him, I had to work quite hard for each one. His defensive skills are good, so it was only when he made a small mistake that I was able to apply a finishing hold. We also did a few training moves, and I think he'll be even tougher in the future. And he was one of the my few UK opponents to set up the match well in advance and then stick to the plan. So he gets an A+ for reliability. Off the mats, I very nice friendly interesting guy. I certainly recommend him to anyone who wants a good submission grappling workout.

I met DenverWrestler on a very hot day at Grove Park for quite an intense submission match, which had been straightforward to arrange. He is too kind about my abilities (and age as I'm now approaching 60) because he fairly massacred me each round. He was just too experienced and technically knowledgable for me to use what tricks I had. I could defend a while but as soon as I started what I hoped would be a counter he pounced quickly and hard to make me submit. He is a very friendly and courteous man, interesting conversation during and after the match, and was kind enough to show me a few very useful moves. Highly recommended!
duncanuk is recommended by madridwrestler
A quite reliable wrestler that lives up his word. He is strong and competitive and not easy to control on mats . Even though he says i could roll him easy , he knows his way on mats and it was by no mean an easy work. We both sweat a lot during a long hard bout.
A very nice , genuine guy off mats with who to share a good conversation. My best recommendation.

I expected a tough match but thought that taking on an opponent with equal stats would at least allow me to manoeuvre and throw him around to some extent. In fact I could not resist his attacks, and mine immediately ran foul of his unbeatable strength, balance and technique. When I was on top he seemed to easily roll me off, but when he was on top he was like a solid lump of lead, crushing my torso and totally immovable. Perhaps his equal weight was more muscle than mine. Anyway, I was crushed, destroyed and worn out. Good fun and a good workout, and a nice meal out and walkabout afterwards with a perfect gentleman.
It never ceases to amaze me how many top quality, skilled wrestlers there are in existence and Duncan is no exception. We had a two hour match today and it was a tough wrestle and a great workout on the mats. Duncan is strong, determined and has great skills and stamina. Being of similar weight, he was easy enough to manoeuvre around, but it was tough trying to get him to submit, his defences being strong. In the end, we both worked hard to get submissions of each other. I highly recommend Duncan because he gives you a great match as well as being a thoroughly nice chap off the mats. He is also a great guest, easy to arrange matches with and completely safe and sane.
Pinstride is a perfect host, great conversationalist and a sane, tough wrestler. He has strong arms and even stronger legs and bags of energy. He countered most of what I tried on him and got me with some hard submission holds. It was a fantastic competitive sweaty contest and am certainly up for a rematch.
I had an unexpected and intense grapple with Duncanuk on Saturday at an open event at Pippas. He looks as if butter wouldn't melt in his mouth but underneath is a competitive wrestler who wants to win! He is fit, strong, determined and experienced. It took all my skill and reserves of strength to get my submissions from him. If you want a competitive, no nonsense fight, this is your man.
I thought Torrnado might be a nice easy way to get back into wrestling after a 6 month break, but how wrong was I. He is incredibly strong, and fit and knows his stuff. One the holds were locked on submission had to follow. It was a good civilised match but an extremely hard one.

Met up with this long standing opponent at a meet in Manchester! AS ALWAYS a hot, hard intense wrestle! This guy is ONE OF THE BEST! Wrestle him if you get the opportunity!
5 STAR rating!
GREAT wrestle last night! This guy is quick, strong, amazing stamina and tough!! Despite the weight difference the fight was even, showing off his skill in handling a bigger opponent. 100% reliable, sane and safe. Not to be missed. Here's hoping the rematch is soon!
dadwrestle is recommended by duncanuk
A true gentleman - who can inflict pain on very inch of your body. Fortunately, he tailors his onslaughts to the abilities of his opponents, so whatever your weight or skill level you will have a good hard wrestle and think you have done well.
Every now and then the mask would slip and the true horror of what could befall me if I got too cocky became apparent. Respect due.
I relish the prospect of the next meeting. Thanks for a great wrestling experience.
duncanuk is recommended by The Enigma
Duncanuk had taunted The Enigma a little prior to our contest so The Enigma was fired up for this wrestling contest. He is strong and feisty but I controlled him eventually and he accepted defeat graciously.

Meet Keith today he very strong wrestler know this suff I am looking forward to our second match I would recommend him to any one
ianparker09 is recommended by duncanuk
Wrestled Ian on his mats after an epic journey to his place just outside Birmingham. I found him to be a gracious host, but very strong and rough (in a good way) on the mats when submission wrestling. I was soon exhausted. He also did some pro moves on me including a couple of overhead slams which were done expertly and safely. Will take him on again and hopefully I will be a bit fitter.
duncanuk is recommended by cambridgeuk
Had a good intensive wrestle with Keith. Really nice guy and very easy to arrange time and place. Nice 'warm down' afterwards as well. Good guy, good match.
cambridgeuk is recommended by duncanuk
Wrestled Cambridgeuk on his mats. He is very strong and well balanced and knows a thing or two, and around my weight so it was a great, sweaty, tussle.
He is also a true gentleman and interesting conversationalist so it was a great visit all round.
Had I not the weight advantage this match would have been very different. Duncan is very experienced on the mats and it was taking everything I had to contain him. He kept coming at me and I thought I was going to expend the last of my reserves and have to soon succumb but, luckily, his gave out just before mine and he was so gracious in defeat. Thanks for organising the mat room and being such a gentleman Duncan, it was an enjoyably spent afternoon. Cheers.
I was able to take on the hunky Canadian at Barnet on 23rd June. He is a solid, tough wrestler who has very strong arms indeed. I could not break his grip at all and being sweaty did not save me from having to submit as it so often does. He also performed some pretty sharp classic wrestling throws - done very safely. An enjoyable massacre. He's also a great conversationalist and all-round good guy.
09/04/2015: Had a sweaty subs match with duncanuk at the Hackney matroom. His experience was enough for him to have me tapping repeatedly, but my extra bulk was enough to keep me on top for periods and I was very chuffed to get a couple of subs off him in return. Mainly though that was because he coached me how! A little bit of heeling from this in-shape guy too to add some variety to our grapple and keep me in my place. Safe, sane, reliable and fun, he is very highly recommended and I'm looking forward to the rematch.
18/05/2015: Rematch with duncanuk at Hackney and I was keen to see if I'd improved any. Apparently I haven't because despite being on top of him most of the time, his experience and strength meant that the subs went mostly his way and I was only rarely able to get through his excellent defence. A real education to wrestle; and a lot of fun too.
18/05/15 A sweaty rematch. He's as tough as ever, with a free-style wrestler's like of standing manoeuvre and attempts to throw. I know for sure he is going to become hard to beat as he is gaining technique in the only possible way - fighting loads of opponents in a short space of time. The sweat won't save me next time.
09/04/15 A very affable guy. We had a prolonged and intense sweaty wrestle at Hackney. I certainly couldn't squash this hunky lad and found myself defending most of the time. I want a rematch soon to see if I can do better and do some of that heeling he is supposed to like.
duncanuk is recommended by LdnGrapple
It's a couple of years since our first match and its good to meetup again.
Keith arranged to come round recently and he arrived as arranged.
This fit guy never gives up - he keeps coming for more. He is a brave wrestler, continually looking for new ways to get control but also passing control to his opponent (when he needed a breather).
Keith is tough with loads of stamina and a sound, sane wrestler. There was no let up for over an hour.
Total gent out of the ring and a pleasure to wrestle, highly recommended.
LdnGrapple is recommended by duncanuk
Jan 28th 2015 rematch with Simon was a tough, chess-like encounter, as we both had good defences and needed to think of smart ways to attack. He has a very good set of mats and bigger than usual space. Great host and wrestler.
Met LdnGrapple 27th June at his place. He is fairly new to the game but is applying a methodical approach to learning effective submission moves and holds and he is already a force to be reckoned with.
He is a really strong guy who knows exactly how to put real pressure on an opponent. He is obviously extremely experienced. Off the mat he is clearly a really nice guy but he certainly knows how to show some excellent attitude in a bout. Very Recommended

IT WAS A PLEASURE MEETING DUNCAN UK THIS AFTERNOON AT BARNET MATROOM. WE WATCHED A WORLD OF SPORT BOUT BEFORE WE HAD OUR INTRODUCTION AND HANDSHAKE.WE WRESTLED FOR AROUND 2 HOURS.VERY NICE GUY AND LOOKS GOOD IN HIS PRO BOOTS AND TRUNKS.WELL WORTH A MEET
wrestlingstar is recommended by duncanuk
Not my usual sort of wrestling encounter, but it was fun. wrestling star loves his WoS-style setup and I like a certain amount of pro-style moves and holds too. Actually I could tell he was physically quite strong and he has a very solid physique, but apart from some double-interlock trials of strength this did not really come into play. Wrestlingstar has some very specific likes so it is worth having some long chats in advance. He is a very personable guy as well.
07/10/14 Third meet with 'Duncan'. He claimed to want a relaxed even paced wrestle so i obliged and only gently squeezed him and didn't make him feel sick at all, while he tried his best to twist my arm off and break my ankle but I'm not complaining. Great wrestle with a nice balance of competitiveness without anything too hardcore. Not sure if three meets makes him a regular but certainly someone I would happily meet again and again. And not just because he has a nice chest.
24/03/14 Second meet with the undertaker, he didn't appreciate that nickname the first time but seeing as he did his best to put me in a coffin i think it should stick. Not suffering from a bad back this time 'Duncan' was even more energetic full of nasty holds, getting the first tap with a very inventive combination of trying to break arms, neck and leg all at the same time. As he commented several times and i am not sure in an entirely complimentary way i am a big lad and with big thighs so i had to get my revenge by squeezing him till he could taste his lunch again. Great energetic battle, lots of fun and hopefully i didn't do any lasting damage to his internal organs but he was very stubborn about apologizing for trying to strangle me. In all seriousness although quite an aggressive battle always safe and inventive. If you like a good battle this is your man.
Duncan (his stage name) had a hint of the undertaker about him when I met him at the underground station, not his demeanour but his clothing, thankfully he turned out to be a very jolly guy and if he had any plans to put me six feet under he restrained himself. I had some weight on my side (as I usually do when I carefully select lighter opponents) but my he was a tough guy, very strong, good at defending and loads of energy, had to rely a lot on my favourite moves - 14 stone lying on him and 14 stone hugging him but he was a hard man to keep down. Great sweaty wrestle and nice furry pecs with lovely n things. Fit feisty and occasionally a bit mean to a beginner. I may have two arms and legs but was breaking one of each really necessary? Seriously he is a very safe guy and it was a good even match although I did manage to get a couple of apologies from him for being so mean to me. he claimed to have a bad back but I really didn't notice as i very carefully applied a single boston, then he tells me that is good for his back, if only i had known he could have experienced the 14 stone full boston.
Duncan is a very skilled wrestler and tough but careful and has a nice bod so if that ticks your boxes send him the application. I would very much like a second go when i am out of plaster obviously (only joking he is a sweet guy x)
My finger stabbed at edit recommendation but the effect was to remove it, so reports of previous 2 meets have gone. However, the third meet was even better with a never-ending but unfrenetic pace of wrestling. Often I was crushed between his very powerful thighs. His arms are less threatening, despite his huge solid biceps. He's a lovely fella and likes to accompany his mercilesss submissions with hearty chuckles that somehow reassure you that you are not in a total nightmare of pain.
duncanuk is recommended by Leglocklover
Keith was kind enough to arrange a match for us at the Barnet mat room. A very enjoyable session with loads of give and take. He has a very good knowledge of holds but my leglocks prevailed well.
duncanuk is recommended by ChineseGrappler
Met up with Duncanuk today and it was well worth it. He has plenty of stamina and lean strength to make you work for every move throughout the match. He clearly has skills that will develop the more he wrestles, so challenge him now!
A very nice guy, and a very feisty wrestler....had a great match, with bags of sweat and both very determined to get the subs on...well worth a meet, but don't be fooled by his nice guy demena , very tough on the mat.....
I met duncanuk at steve fleming's place. (Again, kind host!)
duncanuk is a lovely man. Calm and collective wrestler. Experience in freestyle and submission wrestling and it shows. Tough, strong and technical, who can handle himself. I also tried two on one against steve fleming and duncanuk.
I enjoyed it all, very much.
It would be great - to wrestle him again.
Met Imran for a 2 v 1 match (chez Steve Fleming). I thought maybe I would be the one taking the two of them on, but in reality Imran was the one able to put we "oldsters" in their place. Imran is very technical, flexible, balanced, calm and thoughtful, and strong and fit. One tough cookie and he's only 20. Beware especially those long legs snaking slowly around you and then ensnaring your head or body. Would like another go with him in a matroom. Very pleasant young man, when not hurting you.
duncanuk is recommended by Scrapmerchant 1
'Never judge a book by its cover' - true in the case of Duncanuk. Before he gets changed from his civvies into his fight gear you would think butter wouldn't melt...........you'd be so wrong! From being a placid bloke, Duncan turns into a competitive tough wrestler. We had a great 2 hour fight at Seven Sisters mat room on 31 March. This guy never gives up - he keeps coming for more. He is an intelligent wrestler, continually using his legs to tie me in knots. Duncan is tough, more skilled than me and competitive but a sound, sane wrestler. Thanks for a great workout - roll on our next fight in July!
Scrapmerchant 1 is recommended by duncanuk
This whirlwind of a fighter rescued (?) me when an opponent had to drop out at short notice and he met me for 2 hours intense wrestling at the Seven Sisters Submission Room. He worked me over good, but I made him work hard and sweat. 2 beers and an excellent chinwag ended a marvellous afternoon. Match 5 in July.

Met Keith today i found him very tough, strong, and agile. He knows some good moves and how to put them on.He's a fun guy on and off the mats. I hope to meet again soon for round two. Bill

Tough, even though still recovering from medical procedures. His technical knowledge, speed, and balance make him a formidable opponent. He overwhelmed me many times but was very encouraging and knows how to make sure a satisfying contest is had.

duncanuk is a nice friendly fellor and a good sport.
He's a good wrestler with plenty of stamina and provided me with a good workout making me think as to how I was going to get my next pin or submission.
I really enjoyed wrestling with him today and look forward to meeting him for another match.
wrestle fun is recommended by duncanuk
Wrestle fun is a friendly guy, but a really tough wrestler. He knows a lot of moves and holds from all the various styles of wrestling. He's big and solid and most importantly well balanced, so difficult to turn the tables on him. But, most of all he gives you a good match so I came away feeling great despite being clearly beaten. Many thanks for travelling all that distance as well.
duncanuk is recommended by BRITANNICUS
24:02:14 It took ten months for Duncanuk (Keith) and I to meet up and in a way I'm glad of that because I needed every bit of everything I've learnt in this delightful, fairly even match wrestle at Barnet which was as close to exhaustion as it's possible to get. We wrestled for very nearly three hours (with five minute recovery breaks every 20 minutes) which was how long it took for either of us to get a submission. If you're counting then Keith won fair and square by 5 - 2 but I like to think that he had to work hard for this one. Highest possible recommendation and I hope that we will meet again in the not too distant future. Thanks Keith; this one is going to make me ache every bit as much as when I first started.
BRITANNICUS is recommended by duncanuk
I had a real good sweaty tussle with Britannicus this afternoon. Although he is on the upward learning curve as regards perfecting and enlarging his submission techniques, he already knows enough to cause a lot a trouble. Good defences and some hard attacks, Sometimes it was a bit like chess with move and counter-move between us. Only the last ounce of technical finishing prevented him getting a fair few more submissions, because he had me right where he wanted me. Look forward to the rematch.
A good sweaty, hard fought battle. Some good tap outs on both sides. Strong guy and not to be under estimated. Was a good meet.
duncanuk is recommended by Londonlatino
He is a tough wrestler with plenty of stamina. He is good at submission wrestling and can give you a long sweaty bout.
Londonlatino is recommended by duncanuk
Met at Barnet matroom for several rounds of tough, sweaty submission wrestling. Having a large weight advantage I expected to win reasonably easily, but he was very tough and alive to avoiding armbars and most other of my old reliables. His legs were exceptionally strong. Good opponent for anyone who likes a fit, tough wrestler with plenty of stamina.
Keith is one of the nice guys on the London wrestling scene. And he has improved so quickly since his first match, that he is a worthy opponent for anyone. Quick and knowledgeable about the moves and certainly worth a meet. Highly recommended.
Steve was my first ever wrestle back in 2010 and thank goodness it was someone as sensible and sane as him. He could have completely discouraged a nervous novice like me, but he was generous in his tuition and encouragement. He also put me on to Meetfighters (Allfighters it was then), instead of relying on Globalfight, which wasn't good at throwing up many quality opponents.
Steve is one fit, strong, muscled, technical wrestler as well as being an amusing and very friendly dude. We must be due for our double-digit rematch soon.

As the song goes 'He gets knocked down, but he gets up again, you aint ever gonna keep him down' So much energy and enthusiasm. We had a thoroughly enjoyable hard match. He makes you work hard ! Looks great in his pro gear and good attitude, also a very nice guy - out of the ring !!

Met Yves 17/07/13 at Stockwell. It was nice to have a substantial weight advantage, but this only evened things out as he is fast, tough and technical. He dominated much of the time and in the end the subs were just about equal. He is a cultured, friendly guy, with a tautly muscled physique. A perfect meet. I'd love to meet him again and again.
Met Keith yesterday at Hackney mat rooms and did he give me a run for my money!!
We had a great match and he certainly knows his moves.
We was evenly matched and had me in some good holds.
Top guy on and off the mats.
Rematch is being already planned.
Meet this guy,you will not be dissapointed.
Had a great first sesh with this grappler a few days ago. Couldn't go all out of course as the venue was my welcoming living room, but it was fun. I don't remember the boston but will oblige again! Well recommended.
had a great session with him - strong, skilled and competitive. generated a lot of heat and sweat. and a nice guy too. hope to wrestle him again.

Had a great session with duncanuk, great stamina and endurance, doesn't tire or submit easily. Good 2 hr plus of an exhaustive submission match. Really down to earth, sorted fella who gets stuck in no messin and can dish it out. Total gent out of the ring and a pleasure to wrestle, highly recommended and look forward to a rematch soon
Lomandlad42 is recommended by duncanuk
One of the friendliest guys you'll meet anywhere. No preparation at all for the exceptionally tough, fast, balanced, technical, explosive wrestler that will come your way. He should cultivate an evil sneer and push you around at the beginning as that would match the hard style of grappling he inflicts. Arms and legs are equally lethal and I just couldn't resist or outmanoeuvre him. He doesn't wear out either. Hopefully he'll start smoking more and get unfit before we next meet.
However, it was a great session and I hope to do better next time. It was almost a pleasure to lose to such a great guy.
Strong, skilful, and loads of stamina. This man just does not stop - if you want a tough fight he's the guy for you!
Tyger is strong, and not too fierce, despite the growling. Very friendly and humane guy in between bouts. We both held back a bit because of the group meet in 3 days' time, but it was still a good contest. Rematch due shortly and I expect to find out more of his skills.
met keith at barnet for a good tough 2 and a bit hour wrestle. subs on both sides with some strong submission holds being cranked on by us both. keith has a pleasant softly spoken exterior but has a mean streak on the mats. Has a good arsenal of holds armbars in particular all in all a good genuine fella who is strong and great to wrestle defo meet again.
Had a good long hard tussle with Pitbull at Barnet. He las loads of energy and a wide variety of attacks - he even managed some unexpected pro submissions. Also, good defences - some old "reliables" just didn't work on him. I would definitely be up for a few rematches with this wrestler.
This guy is absolutely 100 % reliable and a good time keeper.
wrestled him today and without giving away the result i am extremely tired and aching tonight. he has great strength and a lot of holds. he is safe at all times and a thoroughly decent guy off the mats. i have no hesitation in recommending him.
Mark is a gentleman and an honourable opponent. Very strong and determined. He arranged the match and introduced me to a new venue (the London Wrestling Studio, Hackney Wick) which has a good set of mats (plus loo and shower. Lok forward to a rematch.
This guy just keeps coming back at you over and over again coz he wants more. strong determined and with a fair amount of skill to show too i had a gr8 wrestle. One to wrestle for sure and re-match. Off the mats cool to chat too and have a beer with. deffo has my recommendation
A mighty wrestler with massive biceps and thighs and well-proportioned body. He has a lot of submissions wrestling technique and agility and did not rely on overwhelming me with pure power.
Also, knows how to do a bit of fun pro wrestling (that is with pain given and received rather than the play-acting variety).
A good hard wrestler, who combines it with friendliness and civilised conversation. Fantastic.

This is one tough wrestler - legs of iron, arms of steel, rest of body... titanium?
Bad news is he is incredibly strong and fit, knows a lot of technique already and has a superb physique, and I cannot imagine many guys here doing well against him. Good news is he is a decent guy who will let you in for competitive wrestle. Thanks for a great workout.
Had a great bout with Keith. He makes the Duracell bunny look laid back, great stamina....just keeps coming after you. Despite big weight disadvantage he used his skill to put up a good hard fight. No hesitation in recommending him. A perfect gent off the mats.
I knew he'd be tough but he was more rigorous than I expected. He seemed a bit different to the guys I've met before; not sure what it was (taller than average, quite good looking and a good head of hair) (!)
He knows how to wrestle down a few notches for the less experienced, but doesn't really "soften" - you always have to watch out for the sudden onslaught. I'm pretty sure anyone meeting him would learn something from him - either something technical or simply the value of a controlled aggressive spirit.
Met Keith this afternoon at Barnet matts. The wrestle was Strong, Sweaty and full of Stamina. Despite the weight disadvantage, Keith can certainly hold his own and look after himself. Don't let his pics mislead you. If you have a spare afternoon and feel the need to wrestle Keith definately fits the my would recommend bill..
Bring on the rematch matey!!
Phil is one strong, hunky wrestler who is building on solid foundations and is clearly getting very good very quickly. Despite wanting a rough, tough fight he is happy to reduce his power level to enable his opponent to get a look in and I actually felt I was in a competitive fight. Great wrestling and great fun. Roll on the rematch.
I had a great match with Keith on my mats we were well matched so was a good competitive workout. He is a friendly guy on and off the mats but watch his takedowns. Would recommend anyone to meet him and look forward to the rematch
Pete is an excellent host, friendly guy, tough wrestler, with strong legs especially. A couple of his subs came out of nowhere and there was one arm lock submission that even now I'm not sure how it happened. Will watch out for it in the rematch. His mats are top notch, and he laid on bottled water and energy drinks. Well worth a trip to Colchester - only 45 mins out of Liverpool St.

I had the pleasure of meeting and wrestling Keith @ Pippa's yesterday.
We had a tremendous world of sport bout, over, 2hrs of great ring action.
Keith was stronger than i expected , and , i had to work harder than usual...Plus the guy looks equally fantastic in trunks and his 'McCoy'leotard !!!
Definate re-match , Definate Recommendation !
Rick Royal is recommended by duncanuk
Rick is a true, very solid, Pro wrestler and a "sound" guy (is that the correct Liverpudlian?) I really enjoyed the ring action we had - being body slammed and ring-posted was a new experience, but there was no danger of being hurt as I was in the grip of an expert.
I dished it out a bit, but on the whole I had to take it as he is superior in technique, experience and strength. Anyone seeking genuine pro-style wrestling should try to get a match booked with that dirty rotten heel asap.
Had one of my best ever wrestling meets with this guy. Keith is sociable and the wrestle took place in a competitive but friendly atmosphere. Physically he has a strong upper body and legs which you don't fully appreciate until you get to grips with him. Keith also looks fit in a pair of speedos and so his appearance on the mats i rate highly too. Keeps his opponents on the back foot and is an intelligent grappler. A fantastic find and hope i get to meet him many more times.
It's clear from the start that Figure4u is very experienced and strong. Several times, instead of a nice gentle tie up I was put straight into a skull-bending headlock and from then on it wasn't easy to launch any effective counter-attacks. I know full well I didn't experience Ade at max power and that he held back so the meetup would be a little more even. - a sort of kindness, even if my body was dealt with rather harshly.
Happily, there were breaks for intelligent chat, and Ade is a very amiable companion.
I'll be looking to learn a couple of new tactics and then have a re-match. I won't win but it would be good to see some improvement.
Wrestled this guy in a World of Sport style bout at the Manchester ring. The meet was easily set up and he turned up as arranged. This was his first time in a ring and he took to it straight away as he’s a natural pro style wrestler who understands how it should be done. He’s also a nice guy and we had a really enjoyable training session and great pro bout which went 9 rounds. I’m looking forward to a rematch and recommend this guy.
Great guy, great enthusiast for pro style wrestling, great pro-style coach. Really appreciate Grovelad taking time to show me the moves and to allow me achieve a forty year old dream of stepping into a wrestling ring in boots and trunks and taking on an opponent. (Grovelad plays the villain really well - 2 submissions to one - the rookie caused him some grief but the old pro wore him down and had the last sneer).
Had a great 2-hour evenly matched submissions session with Duncan. He's good on his takedowns and turnovers on the mat, and always sane in the submissions. Looking forward to wrestling him again.
Matguy has very strong legs and arms, and lots of stamina on what was a hot day at Hackney. He had some good wrestling moves and I'm not sure he revealed everything in his repertory, so another match would be welcome. A very friendly and intelligent chap he is too.
