24.09.15 Battle. A memorable afternoon with Yannis (elgreco) in Battle courtesy of the legendary Musclneck at his wonderful matroom. Strong, skilled, toned and a seemingly invulnerable opponent Yannis is the very image of a Greek God but I was unable to find his Achilles Heal - 100% recommendation for this really nice guy who is able to adjust his superior skills to make wrestling him fun as well as a challenge. I'm looking forward to round II when he next visits the UK ~ meet him if you are lucky enough to get the chance; you won't be disappointed.

Met this great guy in Battle area,UK.....lovely guy, friendly and a very good wrestler.We had a height and weight difference, but he waw able to make me sweat to beat him...and after he wanted more and more....great stamina my friend.Hope see you again, and thank you for all the help there in UK.
I had an all too short 3 minutes on the mat with El Greco and I really hope I get the chance to meet and wrestle him again on his next visit to London. He is strong, killer scissors and never stops working to get on top and get his sub. We both worked very hard and I enjoyed every second. Again, please! But this time longer!

This El Greco guy is real, a good,considerate wrestler with some semi-lethal leg scissors.Yannis is a lean, fit, fast, tall and agile man and we gave each other a good work out. It was a highlight to meet Yannis during my recent visit to Athens. I liked his sporting form, his personality and his character and yet , I too , managed to get caught in his fast moving, gripping, long legs.
Though he was busy too, we soon manged to meet , on the mats ; a reliable, a superb guy, off the mats.Well recommended with his training background..Respect.

I met the Irish Kiwi(Mike) from New Zealand. I have wrestled with many guys and surely he is in the top 5 in technique, he knows what he does when he attack and defend also.He has strategy and he is focused all the time. Strong enough...so with all this skills , this guy is a trouble, but a nice one!!! We had a great match, and hope we will have again despite the distance....Out of the matts he is gentleman(100%), and very pollite. Uh, I forgot to mention that he takes it to the limit when he wrestles, and didnt tap easily, he is never afraid.Thanks Mike, it was such a pleasure meeting you

Met Yannis in Athens for a challenging and terrific time…He was precisely on time, total gentleman and fun to talk to. He does have some amazing scissors!
He def made me work hard ! I'd love to do it all again. He is fast, strong, and clever on the mats !
calwrestler is recommended by elgreco
Dont get fooled by his age....strong enough, with good strategy (especially when he attacks), skilled enough to surprise you, and lungs in a very good condition!!!
Gentleman out of the matts, with mny things to talk about...Hope see you again mate...with more scissors next time,lol.Recommended for a real submission match
Had the great pleasure to meet this sexy Greek in Athens. He is tall, strong and very skilled. It was a lot of fun to roll with him.
Off the mats he is a very nice guy and I am looking forward to meeting him for round 2.
Work on your scissors, Yannis! :)
Very highly recommended.
First time I wrestled a taller and also heavier guy than me...and it was a great-tough experience. Very skilled, and pretty fast for his size. Strategy is very important with this guy....otherwise if he will be over you, you are gone. A nice guy out of the matts, with great humour and kindness.....and my friend, I will work with my scissors as long as you will work not to forget your neck "open"!!!!
El Greco was one of several wrestlers whom I had planned to meet during my long weekend in Athens, and with him I could be sure that I would be subbed. El Greco is both strong, very agile and has arms as to span the whole mat. But he is also safe and sane, and he had no problems in settling down on my level. Sometimes this made me feel like was I just a pupil in school, but I knew that he was doing this just so I can get more experience, and as soon as we were out of the classroom I immediately got to know what wrestling was about. I had read in other recommandations about his viscious scissors, but still it several times happened that I got trapped in them. Then he had time to wait for me to tap out, he just gradually increased the pressure until I inevitably had to tap out. Indeed he inspired me to do more, and I am sure that he will be ready at a second visit to check if I have improved. El Greco is a very friendly guy and I can only give him my best recommandation!

Elgreco, is a good strong wrestler with plenty of technical ability and very legs. He also has a great personality and mixed in well with the rest of the group meet. I look forward to seeing him again

Really great fighter and good guy off the mat. El greco is quick, agile and really strong. Watch out he has deadly legs. I hope to fight him again.

Had the great fortune to meet this friendly Greek on the mats. We had a very good competitive match. I really found it hard to break his defences. He's a big tall lad but very agile and skilled. A really nice guy off the mats too. Likewise can't wait for a rematch buddy. Btw I'm glad he thinks I'm a little Greek too!!
blackwrestleruk is recommended by elgreco
Very strong....and I mean very strong!!! Great defensive skills, and better not grab you in his arms....The best match I had the last months....difficult opponent. As a person? A great person that you can talk for hours....and a little Greek also....right my friend? See you soon for a rematch.
This guy is a great wrestler, knows his moves, and very methodical ....had a really good wrestle with him, very quick and nimble for his size and stature....loved to have wrestled with him some more, but time was against us....Yannis is a really nice guy, on and off the mat, I really do hope our paths cross again in the future....is well worth a meet ! Thanks for a great wrestle my friend !
A very capable, enthusiastic and pleasant wrestler - very much the Duracell bunny!
Had an excellent fight with elgreco today - even though he completely flattened me! He's an excellent fighter, with extremely strong legs. A really impressive guy; I hope I get the chance to fight him again someday.

This meet up was a long time in planning, but on the day all the arrangements worked perfectly. And it was most certainly well worth the wait! This is one ACE wrestler! Fast, strong and skilled, with a muscled body to go with it. It was a delight wrestling him, I must say. Don't be fooled by the slim frame....hes dynamite on the mats. I enjoyed every moment of our match up and only hope that we can meet again SOON! This is one of the great wrestlers of the "Meetfighters" world...110% recommended!

Finally met "Dadwrestle" on his own place and we had some great matches. More aggressive than he appears outside the match, but as much as you need to enjoy a real fight with strength and pressure....but always safe. Strong enough, big guy with strong legs, very good when he attacks ( with full force), you must upgrade a little bit your defense my friend!!! It was a great pleasure meet him...and will do this again. Great hosting, Thank you my friend.

Had the real pleasure of wrestling this tall lean fighting machine on a recent trip to Athens. He can wrestle and it took me all my time just to defend off attacks. He has great all over strength but has a wicked scissors. He looks so good in his trunks - a real athlete.
And off the mats Yannis was really nice.
Planning my return visit and round 2
beefyprowrestler is recommended by elgreco
Strong big guy, with very good defencing skills ( you need effort to pin him down...if you do),....and also working to upgrade his offensive ones. Enjoyed wrestle with him, strong and safe, recommended for everyone.Out of the matts....a real kind-gentle person. Thank you beefy....see you again for sure
There is something of the cultured philospher/ warrior of ancient Greece in Yannis. Very nice intelligent guy with a good sense of humour. Tall & well built with great legs (Esp the thighs)! Also has a long reach, which as I discovered is a very good thing to have!
He is a trained BJJ fighter, one of the best I have met, very strong , his submissions are painful & effective, he does it all so effortlessly. I was totally outclassed & outmanovered, but I think I gave him a good workout. At one point we did some body punching & man can he punch! (He has also trained in Kickboxing, which had't registered when I read his profile & after a couple of punches I had had enough lol) We did a little sumo style wrestling & despite a considerable weight advantage I went flying across the matroom.
It was a real privilige to meet Yanni & am very grateful to Nico (grjobber) for bringing us together & letting us use his mat room. Def recommendation, he is safe & sane & will fight at your level. Hope we can meet again. Finally is a very good massuer
A real gentleman, in and out of the ring.
Strong enough to have a good match, and with good skills in submission wrestling, that if he improves a little more, he will be a real tough guy. Better in defence than attacking, and he really knows how to use his weight....I enjoyed wrestling with him....I will wrestle him again in the fistr opportunity.Well done Dave
strong fit and agile - an excellent wrestler, worth the trip to athens. a really nice guy too. would definitely like to wrestle him again

elgreco is a real wrestler, strong and tough and fun to wrestle. Nice guy out of the matsand can adapt to your game, Sure wrestle him
Two words can describe him on the mats: fast and furious. He moves like a blur on the mats like greased lightning and will capitalize on any mistake you make. Although I outmass him by quite a bit, I had a great workout on our match and I hope made a new friend off the mats.
This huge(more than you can imagine) guy is a great guy.He loves to wrestle and he knows what he is doing on the mats with his skills and his weight.Quick enough and strong.He is a gentleman on and of the mats.Nice meeting you big guy ,hope see you again.
This guy traveled to the U.S. for a event hosted in Pennsylvania, then out to california where we met at my place, he is very strong and great fun on the mats, dont hesistate to wrestle him, he wont disappoint.
Strong, lean, muscular guy with lots of stamina and quite the reach with those long flexible arms and legs. Good submission technique on the mats. Safe and sane with the submissions; gives you time to tap once he gets the hold. Gentleman on and off the mat.
Even that he is not the strongest person in the world,his skills and technique more than make up for that.He can wrestle more and more and more,till you cant.But the most important....maybee the kindest and easy going person I have ever met,friendly all the time with everybody.Thank you Ed
I had a great match with him. Strong, skilled and he can wrestle forever. I had a great time with hi,. Don't miss an opportunity to taek him on! He's a real gentleman off the mats as well!
