I've chatted with John for a while as we have some common locations. He was local for the weekend and suggested a 'light grapple with a few tips' session. A sweaty 90 minutes later, for me at least, with so many tips I'll be pleased to remember a fraction of them, we had to finish but a great meet with such an experienced bloke! John's a great guy off the mats too - looking forward to next time.

Fit, lean and strong with a natural wrestling ability. ECGuy is keen and determined on the mats and is steadily building up a collection of techniques to add to his 'armoury'. Friendly, intelligent and safe. Catch up with him on the mats when you get the chance!

Met Grappler2112 a number of years ago now. Very good wrestler - the judo helped! and very good with pressure points as I recall :-) Thoroughly nice and decent bloke who is worth meeting if you get the opportunity

Strong lad, knows what he's doing on the mat, doesn't submit easily. Good neck...

Met this Skilled grappler last year. He's skilled, knows how to wrestle and can use his experience in the art of Judo on the mats. Had a good long session with him and would definitely meet again if distance wasn't such a problem.

Met up with Judoka33 today in the Netherlands. It was great to finally meet this strong and skilled judoka. He might not have trained for a while, but all his skills and techniques are still in place. It was a great day. Thank you for travelling and taking the time to meet up.

A fanstic meet, shame I had to keep it quick. Strong as a bull and easily takes some stick to take him down and stay down. Only wrestle if you're strong and can take it, otherwise you'll get ya ass kicked! A serious grappler that will fight and fight, very well matched to myself and a great guy to chat to off the mats too.
Thanks for the meet and you understanding of my busy and random schedules!

John is a beast of a man on the mats....big, powerful and skilled.....2 big guys and one small space made for some tight encounters...lol....a mats match is def required for this judoka to show his full skills....great attitude on and off mats. Was a real pleasure meeting him and would do so again without hesitation!

John is one of those men that we all hope to meet and wrestle! Strong, skilled, safe, honest, and worthy of trust. A good friend.
grappler2112 is recommended by Physical
John's a really decent bloke both on and off the mats, a great technical submission grappler, skilled in judo and one of those guys that can teach you something new every time you meet. We met through grappling years back and he's become a good personal friend.
Physical is recommended by grappler2112
A completely genuine bloke with a background in Tae Kwon Do. Nick is increasingly becoming more proficient in grappling as he learns to harness his considerable strength and power with technique. Completely safe and sane - Nick has a great attitude to this sport!
grappler2112 is recommended by Vanman
John is great to grapple, very skilled and can close down any move you make.
He is also an excellent and patient teacher.
Looking forward to our next meet.
Vanman is recommended by grappler2112
Vanman is a former rugby player, who is strong and robust with a 'never say die' attitude. He has a background in Ju-jitsu and is easing his way back into grappling.
As he starts to harness his raw power and combine it with his past training - it'll be in all of our best interests to watch out on the mats - including me!
Definately looking forward to a re-match!

I have had the good fortune to wrestle John a couple of times now at his meets in Manchester and I can say he is well worth meeting if you like your grappling hard and competitive, but sane. He will give you a run for your money and show you some good moves in the process. Good man and sincere off the mat's too. Highly recommended to all of you thinking about meeting up with him-you won't be disappointed. Looking forward to locking up with him again.

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.
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!!
