extralarge is recommended by pinwrstl89
Extralarge is a very strong and experienced wrestler, yet willing to have a session with a rookie and pass on some useful techniques! It was mostly a teaching session and he did not go full throttle, yet giving enough energy to test my strength and stamina, helping me get a better perspective of wrestling overall, while keeping things safe!
Outside the mat he is a very hospitable, educated and intelligent man with a wide knowledge base and life experience to share with!
pinwrstl89 is recommended by extralarge
Pinwrstl89 is a fresh, but very enthusiastic wrestler! He is very fit and powerful and he is eager to learn! He is a natural born wrestler! His attacks are very dangerous but not yet so technical. His defense is strong, and long and he doesn’t submit easily at all. He is a beginner but also a very fast learner! During our two hour session, he managed to improve his technique! At the end, he was able to attack a lot better and defend himself in multiple ways!
Out of the mats, he is a very pleasant, polite and educated young man and is a pleasure to have a chat with him!
manos40 is recommended by extralarge
Manos is an excellent opponent. Strong, with a lean but powerful body, exceptional arm strength and an excellent stamina!
It's getting more and more difficult to submit him, and when you do, he keeps coming back stronger and more determined!
His attacks are impressively improved as well and his opponent must be very careful in order to avoid his own submission attempts.
Outside the mats, he is a very calm, polite and cultivated person and the conversation with him is always a pleasure.
extralarge is recommended by Wrestlingforfunnow
Extralarge was my first fight in the site... He is really strong and very experienced wrestler.. It was difficult-imposible to win him... but i see our fight like a wrestling lesson and him like a great coach! Definately i will have a new session with him soon! Out of the fight, Very polite and good guy he could be a good friend. Cant wait fight with him again!
Wrestlingforfunnow is recommended by extralarge
WrestlingForFunNow is a really impressive wrestler! Strong, well built and intelligent, he gave me a very good fight.
Even when he realized I was more experienced than him, he kept attacking and sometimes he managed to surprise me and make me use my defense tactics in order to stop him.
He was not yet able to resist to my own attacks, so he ended up neutralized and tapped out. But, during the roll, he was careful and he was studying my moves, so he didn’t repeat the same mistakes for the second time and tried to use my finishers on me! He improved himself during the fight! At the end he had already become a better opponent!
His strength and stamina are considerable! We wrestled for more than two hours, without breaking a sweat!
WFFN really likes wrestling and has the spirit of a true warrior! He only needs to work a bit harder, gain some more experience and very soon it will be extremely hard for anyone to submit him!
extralarge is recommended by Scorpus
I had the pleasure to wrestle against extralarge and I have to say that I had a great time. He is very experienced and strong opponent and learned a couple of moves. He adjusted actively to my competence level and we had agreat work out. Safe and sane opponent.
Scorpus is recommended by extralarge
Scorpus is very talented wrestler who has only has been practicing BJJ for two months, but he already fights like a blue belt.
Smart, strong and persistent he tries to make his attacks effective, but has also developed an impressive defense system. He knows when it’s worth to keep trying and when it’ s time to tap. Our match was strong and intensive, but also safe and controlled! We rolled for almost one hour and a half and we had a nice sweat and a great time!
Scorpus is a kind and polite person, but also a remarkable fighter and he has my full recommendation!
extralarge is recommended by AthensWrestling
Extralarge is a very strong and experienced wrestler, a master of techniques, with endless stamina. Apart for being a formidable opponent, he is a talented coach. On the mats, he is is not satisfied in putting up a good fight and deploying all his strength and talent to win; he also wants to share his knowledge and show his opponent his techniques, with patience and calm.
Off the mats, I discovered a kind, polite, educated and interesting man, with whom it’s a pleasure to hold a conversation.
AthensWrestling is recommended by extralarge
Athens wrestling is a very interesting person to meet and wrestle and also chat with!
He is a stocky and strong opponent. He directly goes at it and he rolls in a unique way!
He resists very well against any attacks and he doesn’t allow his opponent to submit him easily. He plays a strong game, but In the same time, he remains calm and polite!
He also has a remarkable stamina and he is able to roll continuously for a long time.
He is determined to keep practicing and learn more moves and holds! And when he does that, he will be very dangerous on the mats!
But, out of the mats, he is a smart and very educated person and a conversation with him, after the match, is highly enjoyable!
extralarge is recommended by subwrstler
Finally we made it meet and roll!!
Extralarge is a very kind and polite person that when you see him waiting for you at the meeting point you can never imagine that he is one of the most skilled wrestlers in Greece! His hours on the the mats are obvious from the first time you start wrestling him. I was impressed how calm he was while he was wrestling and at the same time strong and with effective holds! Very generous to teach you holds and let you try them on him!! Safety was his first priority from the time we met until the end. So if you are interested in a nice roll on the mats with a man that knows his holds the don't miss him!
subwrstler is recommended by extralarge
I met subwrestler today, after years of chatting and all I can say is that it was certainly worth it!
Strong and determined, but always safe, he loves wrestling, he has no complexes and he is able to face any opponent at any level!
On the mats, he blocked my attacks, using his impressive strength and with his own holds, he tried to submit me!
His power allowed him to resist very well to all my submission attempts and he certainly didn't tap easily!
He has a fighter's instict and with a little more practice, next time, he will be able to submit me and make me tap, easilly.
Subwrestler is also a very pleasant person. Kind, polite and always with a smile, he is the perfect guy for a nice chat.
I hope we will meet again soon for more rolling or just a coffee break.
Highly and definitely recommended!
extralarge is recommended by Palaistis
I had lots of good wrestling time with extralarge. He s very strong but all his submissions were technicals i could feel the pressure but he wasnt squeezing. He likes wrestling a lot and i m happy we both had a good time. He s an excellent host and a great guy to talk to. Looking forward our next match!
Palaistis is recommended by extralarge
Palaistis is one of the best greek wrestlers you can find in this site! Very strong, very skilled and very confident, he offered me an excellent match!
Although he claims he is a beginner, he rolls, blocks and attacks like a master!
It took me about fourty minutes to get my first sumbission out of him and he really made me work very hard for the next ones!
Mighty but safe, he cared about my injured leg, as much as I did for his, and although we had a very strong fight, we ended up tired but satisfied!
He is also a very polite and cultivated person. We had a nice conversation after the match and I realised what he really is: A young gentleman with a wrestler’ s DNA!
extralarge is recommended by fightertofight
Extralarge is a very experienced wrestler and grappler with a great stamina.
If you are an advanced fighter then you will most definitely enjoy a rough fight with this guy. If you need a coach or just want to exchange holds and ideas you will surely enjoy the feedback.
After a good fight, he has the patience and desire to teach and help the opponent improve his skills.
Outside the mat he is a very educated person, relaxed and easy going. If you visit Greece and want a good match with a reliable fighter don't miss him. If you live in Greece make arrangements to add him as an opponent. Thanks for the fight and the feedback. Although it was too much information for one session, I am sure we will meet up again and develop a friendship.
fightertofight is recommended by extralarge
Fightertofight is a unique wrestler! Strong, technical, calm and determined! He has an impressive physique and a great stamina and endurance. If he gets back to the gym for a while, soon it will be very hard to beat him.
He really is a fast learner! He kept in mind all the new moves I put on him, and every time, he was defending better and better.
He gave me a very nice wrestling session and a great work out!
Outside the mats, he is a very polite, educated and smart person! Our conversation was very pleasant and informative. I hope we will meet and wrestle again, soon!
extralarge is recommended by Marios1991
Extralarge is very good guy and friendly with a lot of patience.
At first, we wrestle in a place with mats, which had a lot of space for our purpose, and it was great experience.
Moreover, he is very powerful, experienced and he has great stamina. Also, he can put you into a lot of different holds and make you submit with many many many ways. Furthermore, he is very tough guy but he does everything with safety.
Additionally, he is very good teacher.
I hope we meet again for a friendly match like we had today.
Marios1991 is recommended by extralarge
Marios is a very nice young guy with a great passion for wrestling.
His judo background and his stocky and solid body allow him to absorb tons of punishment and keep going on and on.
We wrestled for almost two hours. He was put in numerous submission holds and power-pressure positions. He tried hard to break them and fight back. He was only tapping when there wasn't any more chance to escape.
During the whole fight, he remained calm, smiley and polite.
His stamina and endurance were tested a bit. So he asked for some short breaks. After each one, he kept coming back more and more determined.
My wrestling session with him was very nice and I hope we will roll again soon! Next time, he will be more experienced, too!
extralarge is recommended by ninos
Extralarge is a good and strong wrestler! I learnt a lot from him in our fight!!! He has very good technic and he is ready to teach you too! Also he has very good stamina too!!!! Last but not least, as a really responsible man he never let his opponent feel unsafe and in danger!!! Totally recommended
ninos is recommended by extralarge
Ninos is a good wrestler and a great guy! His impressive physique, strength and stamina allow him to fight hard and resist most submission attempts. It’s not easy at all to make him tap. Sure, he needs some improvement with his technique. But he is a fast learner and he can instantly apply on you what he has just learned in the previous rounds! His endurance is incredible: We wrestled non-stop for almost two hours and he was still able to go for a lot more! Off the mats, he is a very polite and easy going person. I think his grappling future is bright and I hope we will wrestle again soon. Totally recommended!
extralarge is recommended by matslam
We ve known each other for years,and I can only say one thing.This guy’s passion and dedication for wrestling is real and unending.He can adjust to any level accordingly,though I was mostly dominated by him since his strength and technique is unparalleled. You ought to meet him should you get together in Athens or any place worldwide, you won’t regret it..
matslam is recommended by extralarge
A great person and a great wrestler! Passionate but calm. Intelligent but smooth. Technical but absorbing. He claims to be a jobber, but his wrestling knowledge is so wide, he is able to tap most opponents. He is very careful and easy going and he always offers an unforgettable wrestling match. Outside the mats he is an excellent host an extremely polite person. I would surely recommend him, although he is already the most recommended wrestler in this site.
extralarge is recommended by schabernacken
Easy and very reliable when arranging our combat. He is impressively strong and big and you can feel his technical martial arts background when fighting. Unfortunately there wasn't enough space to go for more agitated moves. Next time in Athens! Highly recommended in all aspects.
schabernacken is recommended by extralarge
A pleasant and easy-going guy, very fit and strong. He is able to take tons of punishment and painful holds! Sometimes, he fights back, he blocks his opponents moves and tries to delay the submission. We didn't have much room, so our moves were limited. But, next time, things will be better! This person is a definite recommendation!
extralarge is recommended by AD idf
I met this guy today for wrestling. His profile name is true. He is very large, strong, skilled, and like wrestling so what can I ask more for great time on mat. Nothing for sure. I have many difficul6to.make him tap and I have to say I tap many times but he is very safe and fun.
Very friendly guy outside mat and that's great too.
Hope. Meet him again one day maybe in paris.
Necessarily recommended if you pass in Athens.
AD idf is recommended by extralarge
AD idf is both an excellent wrestler and an excellent person. Strong and stocky, he knows his moves and he made very hard for me to get each and every one of my taps! He fought all of our ten rounds to the end and he was only giving up, when there was absolutely no way out! He also managed to get two taps out of me! Well done!
Outside the mats, he is a very polite, educated and well organised person. He is a must-wrestle, if you have the chance to meet him. I would be very happy to meet and wrestle him again! I wish him all the best!
extralarge is recommended by Karadim
Extralarge is an excellent and experienced wrestler! He was willing to show me some wrestling moves and even let me start from a privileged position and try to tap him. Needless to say it's almost impossible to tap him. And as other said safety comes first. I have a serious injury and all the time he was asking if I'm ok and he was very careful. And a reminder for everyone; he has deadly legs! After the match we had a nice conversation. He is a cool person. Highly recommended!!
Karadim is recommended by extralarge
Karadim is a young and enthusiast fighter, still recovering from a serious injury. Although he doesn't have any wrestling background, he's a fast learner. After the third round, he was able to go for serious attacks and managed to put me in some difficult positions! We wrestled for more than an hour and had a nice time. Of course, safety was our first concern! He is also a serious and polite person and after our match, we had a nice conversation, too. In a few months, when he will have totally recovered, things will be very difficult for all his opponents. Highly recommended in Thessaloniki area!
extralarge is recommended by Zack
Extralarge is an excellent wrestler. He really knows what to do in a wrestling match and can adjust his play to a smaller and less experienced wrestler, like me. He is very strong and skilled and he has a remarkable stamina! We wrestled for over two hours and he didn’t even need a break to catch his breath!
He put me in a wide variation of holds, that I didn’t even know they exist! He submitted me numerous times, but always in a very safe way! Εvery time, he kept asking me if I was all right or the hold was too tight. So, I never felt I was in a dangerous situation, even when he applied on me his stronger holds! On the contrary: I really enjoyed being dominated in such a safe way!
He is also a very good teacher. He showed me an effective hold to apply on bigger guys like himself, and tap them out, which I will use in the future!
Many times, he let me start the fight from a privilege position and apply finishing holds on him, while he would try to escape. No need to say that he was always able to break my holds, reverse the situation and put me in a submission position.
He also gave me one more strong experience: He lifted and carried me twice, both in a fireman’s carry and in a torture rack, always being very concerned and carrying about me being safe!
Extralarge is a very serious, polite and well-educated person, really nice and friendly!
It was a pleasure to meet and wrestle him and I hope we will have the chance to repeat it, very soon!
If you are in Greece, you really have to meet him! He is a must – wrestle!
Zack is recommended by extralarge
Zack is a young and very enthousiast wrestler, very strong and solid for his size. He likes to challenge bigger opponnents and test his strength and skills against them. This makes him a superb jobber. He is determined and insisting. He tries to find a way out of every hold and works very hard to break it. So, he doesn't give up easily at all. He can absorb a lot of punishment and still continue to smile. He is also a very quick learner. I teached him a few holds and he was instantly able to use them on me, very effectively!
If he continues going yo the gym and improves a little his wrestling skills, he will be, very soon, invincible for wrestlers of his size.
Outside the mats, he is a very polite and civilized person and we had a very pleasant, but also serious conversation.
In general, we really had a nice time!
So, if you ever find a challenge from him in your inbox,
just accept it. It's worth it!
extralarge is recommended by tassos1
Really great guy with a fantastic place to wrestle very friendly he has mats very cool guy
tassos1 is recommended by extralarge
Tassos is a smart wrestler. He is a light weight who has the confidence to wrestle bigger guys like me. His quick reflections allowed him to avoid many submission holds and last a lot longer than he was expected. He is also a very nice and reliable person. Very highly recommended for lightweights!
extralarge is recommended by armyb69
Extralarge is a very good wrestler, with a lot of experience. He knows well how to add pressure using his body weight, and many ways to immobilize his opponent or make him surrender. However, he always respects his opponent's limits. We had a fight, which lasted for about 1,5 hours long with almost no breaks. He also has a professional wrestling room with mats which was very convenient. Off the mats, he is a very cultivated, gentle and educated person. Totally recommended from my side.
armyb69 is recommended by extralarge
Armyb69 is a very powerful and very resistant opponent. Considering his size, he' s one of the strongest men I' ve ever wrestled. His strength is incredible. His powerful hands blocked all my finishing attempts and made very difficult to keep him down and submit him. And he was able to submit me a couple of times! He is not very experienced yet, but he has a wrestler's instict. After some more bouts, when he will gain experience and be able to use more moves, I' m sure he is going to be unbeatable!
He is also a very nice, polite and educated person and we had a very interesting chat, after our match. I totally recommend him and I hope we will wrestle again, soon!
extralarge is recommended by ATONMAN
08.03.2014 - Class, right aggressivity and power are the hallmarks of EXTRALARGE. You can not miss him if you go to Athens. To meet him you will be well prepared. I really enjoyed our meeting and because we fight to win and at the end we were really sweaty like warriors after an hard match ...no one of us wanna be a loser
ATONMAN is recommended by extralarge
Aton2001 is a very strong and technical wrestler.
His power is very difficult to control and his bjj experience makes him an excellent opponent.
Methodical and technical, tries to surprise his opponent by using unexpected moves and he doesn't give up easily, even if he is well traped in a devastating hold!
It was a great pleasure to meet and wrestle him.
In addition, he is a very nice and polite person off the mats!
extralarge is recommended by Perseus
Extra large was very gracious and contacted me when I visited Athens and invited me to wrestle in his matroom. He has a fantastic set- up and we wrestled in short bouts with others. He is definitively a superb wrestler very very powerful strong and aggressive and if u are serious about submission wrestling u must meet him if u visit Athens. Off the mats a fantastic host who showed us some of Athens nice spots and has my total recommendation and one not to miss if u visit Athens.
Perseus is recommended by extralarge
Perseus is an exceptional wrestler! Really powerful with a strong solid body, he gave me a really nice roll! Agressive and technical, makes himself a real challenge for his opponent.
He knows how to use his weight to be more effective and he likes using various holds. It was very difficult to submit him! He always used to break the hold and keep coming up.
A very nice and civilised person off the mats.
You should definitely wresle him!
extralarge is recommended by Essex
This guy is an amazing wrestler and has fantastic technique to get the most out of the many holds he will get you in.
Had me tapping quite a few times and is very experienced wrestler who will wrestle to your limits.
Lovely guy both on and off the mats and was great to meet later in the evening for food, drinks and a small tour of the area.
Extremely sociable, friendly guy and I recommended you meet him if you are in Athens.
Essex is recommended by extralarge
Essex wrestler is a wrestling gentleman.
He is not very big, but he is very solid and strong for his size, with an amazing technique and experience. He doesn't give up until the last moment and he always tries to break and reverse his opponent hold.
Wrestling him was a real pleasure!
He is also a very nice guy off the mats!
You should definitely wrestle him, if you have the chance!
aiadasgr is recommended by extralarge
Aiadas is a very strong and muscular wrestler, who cannot be easilly submitted. He blocked all my holds with huge strength and he managed to reverse some of them. He was even able to lift me in a bearhug. The match was strong, but safe 'n' safe. I enjoyed our wrestling very much and I hope we will meet again, soon. Outside the mats, he is a very reasonable, friendly and polite person. I definitely recommend him to anyone, for a good wrestle.
extralarge is recommended by makant157
Extralarge is a very strong wrestler, quite skilled and with impressive stamina.
He knows well how to add pressure using his body weight, and many ways to immobilize his opponent or make him submit.
However, he always respects safety and his opponent's limits.
We had a very nice, about 2 hours long session with almost no breaks.
Off the mats, he is a very cultivated and educated person, and a very gentle and polite host.
He also has a very professional wrestling room.
Totally recommended from my side.
makant157 is recommended by extralarge
Makant is an excellent man and wrestler!
On the mats, he is a fit, strong and resistant opponent!
He can absorbe a lot of pressure. His body strength permits him to be in some really devastating holds for a long time, without giving up! His durability makes him a perfect opponent for a long wrestling session! We had an amazing two hour match, without any breaks, and I think we enjoyed it both, very much.
After that, we also had some coffee and a very interesting conversation! I discovered that off the mats, he is a polite, reliable and consequent person!
I'm glad I met this guy and I definitely recommended him!
extralarge is recommended by musclechris80
This guy is really large. If he got you in a headlock is ulikely to escape. He knows how to use his weight against his opponent, but his weak point is his stamina. After every round we had a long time out to catch his breath. We had a very strong match in his wrestle room which I can ensure that is one of the best you can find in Athens. Thanks for the nice match!
musclechris80 is recommended by extralarge
Musclechris is an excellent opponent. Very strong and very technical, he managed to neutralise our weight difference. I won the first few rounds, but due to his great stamina (he never gets tired) he settled the score to a draw! We had a very strong and very spectacular match, that I really enjoyed. Out of the mats, he is very polite and reliable and his body condition is an example for any other person at his age! After our match, I'm inspired to work harder in the gym and improve my nutrition. Thanks for the match, Chris! I'm looking forward for the next one...
extralarge is recommended by konnos85
Extralarge is a very good fighter a very strong man that respects the limits of his opponent.He submitted me a lot of times but i promise to him that next time i'm gonna be the winner.
konnos85 is recommended by extralarge
Konnos is a very solid guy. He is naturally strong and it is very hard to make him submit. His body weight is an extra advantage for him. But, he is not very experienced, yet. So, he finally submitted to my holds, this time. But I'm sure things will be harder for me, in our next match. We had a very good work out and a very nice time. He is a very polite and reliable person and he respects limits. A very good opponent!
extralarge is recommended by marsupi
I met Extralarge while I was staying in Athens and we managed to find some time for a long, intense wrestling session that I enjoyed very much. He is a strong, seasoned wrestler who knows many holds, including very efficient ones to block your throat and your chin. Yet, he is also a very safe and sane player, who's caring about his opponent and willing to share his skills. I have learned a lot from him. Outside of the mat, he is a true gentleman and if we had not been running out of time, I would have appreciated benefiting from his insider view on Athens.
marsupi is recommended by extralarge
Marsupi is a great opponent and a great person. He's got strength and stamina and he is able to absorb the pressure of holds for a long time before giving up. Actually he hates to give up and he really tries to avoid it as much as he can. We had a great work out, for about one hour and a half, and we really had a great time. He needs to improve his technique and he will be a very dangerous opponent. Outside the mats, he's a very polite and educated person and it was a pleasure for me to meet him. I hope next time we wrestle, he is going to be even better!
extralarge is recommended by tuviaz
ExtraLarge was one of the nicest surprises during my visit in Athens. He is a strong wrestler, with good moves and very powerful upper boddy and legs.
We tried a variety of holds, and he certainly managed to submit me in many of them.
in addition, he is a great guy, very polite , a person you could talk with even after the match. I will be happy to meet him again in the future.
tuviaz is recommended by extralarge
Tuviaz is a huge guy, strong and powerful wrestler and also very experienced. For me, it was a pleasure to wrestle him and try to submit a much bigger guy! But it was worth it! We wrestled and rolled for almost two hours and we really enjoyed it! But, most of all, I enjoyed his company! He's a nice, friendly and very educated person and I hope I will meet him again, soon!
extralarge is recommended by newzealander
recommended by me, we fought, a good ,long rough bout, he will take you to your limits and then try for more, totally enjoyable, lovely guy, excellent fun!!!but man, did I lose some sweat!!! hehehhe yeah, Id fight you again, big fella!!!
newzealander is recommended by extralarge
Newzealander is a powerful and very skilled opponent. He knows what to do and is almost impossible to make him give up. We had a very nice match a couple of years ago. Very pleasant guy off the mats. You should wrestle him, if you have the chance.
extralarge is recommended by dcwrestle76
I met extralarge while on my trip to Greece. He is very strong and competitive. I would recommend him to other wrestlers and prepare yourself for a good workout! I hope we will have more time to wrestle the next time we meet.
dcwrestle76 is recommended by extralarge
An excellent person and an excellent opponent.
Jon is polite, reliable and a very strong and technical wrestler. He's not big but his power is impressive! He is smart and quick on the mats. It' s very hard to submit him, because he doesn't give up easilly. He 's so good, he even submitted me twice, using smart jointlocks and neutralising my weight advantage. He gave me an excellent fight! So, I highly recommended him to anyone, bigger or smaller. Jon is one of the best opponents someone can find!
