Past cyber/phone opponents:
Had the pleasure of meeting this fella for a brilliant session... have been talking for a while so was such an exciting pleasure to meet him :) he’s high up on my list of amazing wrestlers... incredibly strong (stronger than I imagined) which is why he probably wins all his wrestles.
A gentleman too... in a beast way ha ha :) was a great coach as I’m nowhere near his skill level... and had some amazing pointers on how to get some nice holds in. Definitely would recommend.... although you probably won’t win lol.

Had a really good local meet with jamstu this afternoon. Very strong fella with 15ish yrs more experience than me.
A tough cookie with own mats and very accommodating. Hopefully can meet again soon.
I can't believe I hadn't written a recommendation for this powerhouse before. I wrestled him on my last visit to the UK as part of a 4 man meet. Jamstu is a powerhouse and also very agile. His scissors are lethal. I have very strong legs and was shocked to have to submit to a scissor hold to my upper thigh! He is an experienced guy and a lot of fun to wrestle.
jamstu is recommended by chestertom
Wow - what a powerhouse - big, big guy - I was putty in his hands at wrestling - he really showed who was boss but in the nicest possible way! However, I got my revenge with arm wrestling and beat him on every go. Can recommend him if you want to take on someone who is both really strong and really nice - he even picked me up and dropped me back at the railway station. Well worth the meet.

Had a wrestle with Jamstu this evening a strong, skillful guy which makes wrestling him so enjoyable and he is great company too, looking forward to the next one..
jamstu is recommended by GrappleViking
What a way to kick off 2018, by meeting and wrestling this guy for the first time!
Jamstu is an absolute beast on the mats. There is no other way of putting it. Incredible balance, super skilled, and so bloody strong! Add to all this that he is in fact incredibly quick, and we're looking at a first class wrestler. Had a blast wrestling him, and can't wait to wrestle again! I'll surely learn a few tricks from this guy..
Off the mats, he is very calm, collected, down to earth, and a pleasure to spend time with. Highest of recommendations!
GrappleViking is recommended by jamstu
A good start to 2018 - met this feisty young and upcoming wrestler.. he might look slight and somewhat innocent looking, but dont let those looks fool you... this guy is a tough wrestler, who doesnt stop looking for a way to wear you down.
Grappleviking is only going to get better as he improves with experience and age.. 100% totally recommend meeting him and can't wait to wrestle him again
Definitely the ultimate heel. If you like being dominated by a beast then James is deffo your man. He is an absolute legend on the mats. We have talked for years finally met him in 2013 after 3 years of talking. he dominated me start to finish even addin insult to injury by using dirty tactics to humiliate his young chubby jobber. Great lad off the mat too with advice and general talk. a pleasure to have met and i can't wait for round 3 hopefully in the ring this time :P
I cannot believe I haven't written a recommendation for James before - it must appear so rude!
I reconnected with him this past weekend - and he is, away from a match, the friendly guy that I remember so well.
In our match I can only say his is as devastatingly good as he always was. Strong, fast, knowledgeable and I will admit I was totally outclassed.
I cannot recommend him highly enough and want to thank him for the long trip he willingly made to come and see me - yes and destroy me!!
He's a true gent but a real brute when he wrestles - you have been warned!!
Had chance to wrestle Jamstu again after a years wait at a meet in Manchester. He hadn't changed a bit. Still big, strong and able to move a lot quicker than you'd expect from a big lad, add in his extensive wrestling skill and you got one Hell of an opponent that needs you to be on your 'A' game.
Still great fun to wrestle him, he definitely pushes you to your best and I am proper looking forward to wrestling him again, hopefully sooner rather than later.
jamstu is recommended by Subswrestlerfife
Met James a couple of times. Solid wrestler, very skilled and a fast mover. Great to chat to and has decent banter.
Roll on round 3.
jamstu is recommended by The Undertaker
After talking with Jamstu for a while finally met up with him as was well worth it. Is very good in his submission moves and had to finally tap to him several times. His body splashes are lethal but awesome as well. Nice guy on and off the mats as well as safe and sane. Hope for round 2 as well.
jamstu is recommended by Warrington-Mike
We have met a couple of times for fun Boxing and wrestling. he is a big strong guy, always had me, but a perfect gentleman and host.
Have to have another round again !
jamstu is recommended by dorsetgrappler
This was my third match with jamstu so I knew what I was letting myself in for. And I wasn't disappointed. An excellent wrestler who can adapt to his opponent skill level, but he'll get the taps with those killer legs of his. Next time it'll have to be an oil match so I have even half a chance!
A great guy and a good host. Well worth the travel.
James is also great to wrestle,we have also had great matches aswell,he is great to talk too off the the mats too,looking forward to having a re-match soon.
Very nice guy both on and off the mats. On the mats he knows exactly what his strengths are and just how when to sit back and laugh at you being unable to break free.
Was shown a few new moves and tried them out a bit but to no avail.
Off the mats James is a really nice guy to chat to, very comforting and helpped me relax in a new environment. Couldnt reccomend high enough :)
I look forward to a rematch
This young guy is great on and off the mats, not too bad for a Geordie... he is strong and stubborn, two things which will stand him well being a fighitng jobber.. Thoroughly enjoyed our wrestle and definitely would recommend him to any one who wants a good fun struggle and wrestle.
yes he is a little experienced but that will change with time and the more he fights..
Wholeheartedly would give him the rematch that he so desires
jamstu is recommended by ruffighter
jamstu is one fine fighter and can play the viscious heel to a T
jamstu is recommended by rumbletumbleUK
After numerous chats we eventually met up and even though travelling up to meet him he was tired and it was rushed.
His experience and high skill trounced me many times.
jamstu is recommended by hephaestion2014
Have met a couple of times now and have always been good fun.
He's very good and knows a lot but not in a way that you don't get a good wrestle.
Not only will he wrestle down and adjust, he'll share his knowledge, well some of it, so you get a good workout and learn a few moves
He's a good guy off the mats, and on. I've wrestled him in a sorta beast mode, wrestled semi-competively and a fun, softer playful wrestle too.
He'll give you the match that you ask for ;)
If you haven't wrestled him, you're missing out. Look forward to the next round.
hephaestion2014 is recommended by jamstu
What I can say about this gent of a wrestler? Good solid guy who can take a working over... after a few months of trash talking by texts and email, we finally managed to meet up and wrestle.. albeit in a small hotel room..
he is a great guy to wrestle and with more experience and coaching, he will a force to reckon with on the mats ... wholeheartedly recommend him to any one
This guy is beastly strong, one of the strongest I've met so far. I knew he would be strong, but was still quite stunned as I hopelessly attempted various takedowns. Unless you're a (super)heavyweight yourself, don't even bother stepping onto the mats. Jamstu is quite scientific about his wrestling, so we had a really nice chat about techniques and strategies after our short/intense bout.
Wow what can I say this guy was my toughest battle of all. Big guy like me really great on his technical skills let's face it I was never gonna beat him at my level but I went in strong (I like a challange) Jamstu actually really helped me as well.
If you want to wrestle someone that's a sincere guy who will give you tips but also make you work hard on the mats then this is the guy for you.
He is my Strongest recommendation for anyone to battle even if your experienced he will really make an awesome match.
I'm gonna train hard now and I will be back for my rematch.
Cheers Jamstu for an Awesome battle.
This guy is strong.. very strong.. don't let his reservedness fool you. whilst he is still learning a lot tricks and moves, he is already quite the handful without them. If you are in his local area then don't miss up the chance to take this guy on, he is most definitely worth a wrestle and will push all of your wrestling skills to the limit.Wholeheartedly recommend him to any one and await our rematch
jamstu is recommended by fullwellfighter
There is really not a lot that I can add to what has already been said about James, by other guys, but I'll say the following.
This is one very fit guy, who is immensely strong, and extremely skilled. James is however, a gentle giant, and well and truly respected my limitations, for which I am very grateful. That said however, he definitely gave me a working over in a very good way.
I truly recommend anyone contact James and have a match. You won't be disappointed in any way, shape or form, and you'll have a contact for life!
I'm very grateful to James for making our meet up so enjoyable and for taking the time out of his busy schedule to come and see me.
jamstu is recommended by Johnny Clutcher
Jamstu is not only super-sized, he is built. His physique is literally overwhelming and he is immensely strong. I didn't manage to properly apply a single hold during the entire bout while he leisurely made me tap-out again and again and again. The disparity in stats meant that I was really a waste of his time - although he was kind enough not to make the comment! He is really careful to break the hold on tap-out and keeps strictly within agreed limits. He is also a really nice guy. Highly recommended.
jamstu is recommended by Leglocklover
James is a gentle giant who was happy to wrestle to my far inferior level. He is very skilled and we ended up locked in a multitude of holds. He has thighs of steel and once they are wrapped around you it is game over. A thoroughly decent guy and well worth the meet.
I met jamstu a couple of weeks ago and we had a fun hour of mixed wrestling. He is a strong guy and i didnt stand a chance with my lack of experance. It was like a cat playing with a mouse. Those leg scissors are a killer. Down to earth guy and hopefully we can meet for longer next time :)
17.7.16 Been trying to arrange rematch with this beast for about 2 years. then all of a sudden we met twice. Last weekend at a hotel in Nottingham, then again today at Pippas courtesy of Steve Gray. I have pondered the enigma that is Jamstu long & hard. A big bloke who is light on his feet, fast & agile. Skilled in the grappling arts. Strong as an ox, fit, but says he doesn't train. Hotel wrestles are not really my thing because of the lack of space & I knew with James I needed to move around & hopefully tire him. Sure enough he soon had me corned, overpowered & submitting. HoweverI enjoyed it. We posed together in front of the mirror at my suggestion & sparred a little & I had a good look at his body & compared our bulk & height to see where I might have an opening for today.(Rather cunning of me I thought). But in the end my only real plan was to dance around Mohammed Ali style (Don't laugh ) & hope for an opening if he got tired. This was ok , & today unlike our previous fights I managed to fight my way out of concerted Jamstu attacks & avoided been dragged into the Jamstu vortex, overpowered & forced to submit. FOR A WHILE! But ultimately the rock on which my hopes were dashed were his strength, size & he is a better wrestler. I got on top which is where I am happiest, tried my favourite subs to no avail. Before he assumed control & submitted me.
Conclusion……….I need to become a powerlifter !!!
James is a lovely guy, at the end we discussed how I might manage to take him down & we tried one or two thing & he let me practise a couple of subs.
I have wrestled a lot of very accomplished heavyweights.. Both here & abroad. I reckon James is the toughest Heavyweight opponent I have faced in the UK at the present time . He is probably amongst 6 best best I have faced in the world. If you want to test yourself take him on, he is safe & will wrestle at your level. He is a challenge, but I would like meet on a regular basis & hopefully improve. 10 out of 10 from me!
OMG! Jamstu is awesome. There are some wrestlers, Musclneck, Rob England et al , who I use as benchmarks. To their number I add James. Very strong (He used to lift beer barrels at work & built up his strength & learnt the best way to lift heavy weights with minimum effort doing it) Very Skilled wrestler (All down to understanding physics he tells me, valuable information. I felt I should share it) Another thing when james was attempting to coach me was his suggestions on techniques were geared to the needs of bigger guys like himself & myself , who have't the agility of a lighter wrestler.
As you've probably guessed I lost.
James is a nice guy. Safe & sane, good & generous coach. He wrestles to win, but pitches it at his
opponents level. he is happy to wrestle any shape or size of wrestler.
As I was driving home over Saddleworth Moor in the Bleak Borderlands Of Lancashire & the old West Riding of Yorkshire in strong winds, my shoulders were aching like they've never ached before after a wrestling match. Def Recommend for wrestlers of any level
great nice guy who gives it his all whilst wrestling, will be a good wrestler once he remembers to put things into practise . would certainly wrestle him again
Met Tanker again for another wrestle, he has improved a lot since our meeting, defends well and is a good strong wrestler .. thoroughly recommend him to anyone who wants a good wrestle
I tend to be wary of young fellows but this one put me at my ease from the moment I met him. Fun, patient and enormously strong he seems to enjoy squashing older guys like me. Got flattened by him in 2011 and 2012. A third session is long overdue.
jamstu is recommended by marklondon71
Great wrestler and very accommodating, very good fight and got plenty of practice. Sorry he's further away now, would definitely wrestle with him again.
Even though we only live a few miles apart, it has taken a while for me to get to wrestle Jamstu but it was well worth the wait. He is a skilled and knowledgeable wrestler, who willingly shared his experience with me in what turned out to be an enjoyable and fruitful session. I hope we shall get together again soon
Faced Jamstu again, this time at a group meet. He is just as strong as he was first time, but in a bigger space he also shows his agility is better than you expect from a big guy.
I think I did a bit better this time but the end result was still me losing to him. Maybe next time.
Had a fantastic wrestle with this very strong and very experienced guy at his great home mat set up. Completely out of my depth here but it was no problem as jamstu's seemingly very happy to wrestle down to others' level, wrestles safely and sanely and only very occasionally uses his size to his advantage (just to remind you what you've taken on!), mostly preferring to get his (many) submissions through well executed holds. For such a big guy he's a very technical and thoughtful wrestler. He's also a generous and skilled coach, patiently showing me a number of holds and moves and explaining them in a clear way that'll hopefully sink in. A lovely, friendly, funny guy off the mats too, he is very highly recommended and I'm looking forward to the rematch.
Don't let the name fool you in anyway, this guy might like to be a jobber and get squashed but you have to work for it.. Very nice guy to meet and wrestle. With some more coaching he will give a lot of heels a hard but satisfying bout. Would definitely meet and work him over again...
goes without saying that this guy is an unstoppable force! Had a good light hearted wrestle where, needless to say, I got owned. Hopefully get a good few more matches with him :)
This young gent has all the making of a very decent wrestler.... h doesn't back down and takes the fight to you. With time and with him remembering what he needs to do in a wrestle, he will develop into quite a formidable wrestler.. Would recommend him to anyone and definitely up for another meet
jamstu is recommended by eastcheshireguy
Met James at his place for a few tips rather than anything competitive. He offered loads of advice and hints on moves and holds which he was happy for me to practice on him - great to try them in a less hectic session. Grest knowledge on it all and friendly bloke so I would definitely recommend him for a session.
After many years of enjoyable banter, I finally met this gentle giant. I was outclassed as expected but loved testing my strength against this big knowledgeable guy. Echo everything said about him, hope I get some more know how to get him down!!! Thanks mate.
Great guy as usual, excellent fighter and host. Such a shame our last encounter got cut short!
Finally managed to meet James, and you should to. He knows his onions, safe sane punctual reliable fun and a tough bastard on the mats. This big lad comes highly recommended.
After talking to 'Jamstu' for as long as ive been wrestling, l finally managed to meet this experienced and skilled wrestler. I was not disappointed. Despite the weight difference ( which is unusual for me to say) "Jamstu' certainly controlled the match. I look forward to our next meet as he is a safe & sane and a pleasure to wrestle.
jamstu is recommended by dadwrestle
Totally overpowered and outclassed on our last meet yesterday!
No idea why I haven't posted a recommendation before! This guy is WELL worth meeting. Big and tough, but safe and sane! Roll on our next encounter on mats!
Met James for a wrestle and believe everything people write about him - this guy is really strong, powerful and a very skilled wrestler with some wicked moves. Also he's a really friendly, genuine guy, safe and sane. If you really want to test yourself with a big strong wrestler I totally recommend him.
jamstu is recommended by southlondonwrestler
A total gentleman. Very strong and knows his stuff. A lot more experience than me but I managed a few subs! Highly recommended. Meet him but watch his headlocks.
southlondonwrestler is recommended by jamstu
A true gent, strong, tough and can take some working over. a reallu great guy on and off the mats, certainly worth a meet. Once he starts to improve his technical skills, he will be a force to be reckoned with. Now to arrange a rematch...
Good guy and very strong - enjoyed meeting and wrestling him very much.
Second time around James is even stronger - amazing headscissor power and even more skilful. Thanks mate!
I MEET JAMES 29TH JULY AT IS HOME AND YES WAT A BIG GUY KIND WARM AND A GREAT HOST MADE ME VERY WELCOME WILL ADAPT TO WAT EVER LEVEL YOUR AT VERY SAFE AND SANE WILL HELP YOU IN ANYWAY HE CAN NEEDLESS TO SAY I DID NOT GET VERY FAR BUT IM GOING BACK FOR MORE SOON I HOPE SO GET IN CONTACT WITH IM YOU WOINT REGRET IT NICE GUY ALL ROUND
Met Jamstu and was a fun wrestle. He is a strong guy with great wrestling skills. Took it easy on me due to the size difference but had a really fun bout. Would meet again.
Met up with James for a match yesterday while visiting family in the north west. He's a big strong guy with powerful headlocks but safe and sane. Nice guy off the mats too. I'd recommend wrestling him if you get the chance.

big guy, but nice and friendly and safe and sane with a lightweight like me, he can mix it with the best, but also lower his game to my ability, thanks mate, look forward to the next time.

I hope to be facing him again soon.

Jamstu is a big guy, a strong guy, a skilled wrestler and a top bloke, seriously. Recommend anyone has a match with him
It's a great friend and a superb opponent in the fight, I recommend you to fight against because he likes to fight with any rival. Enom friend a hug.
Very considerate of the needs of his opponent, decent mat set up. Easy to talk too off the mats and puts you at your ease straight after you meet.
Had a good fight with James today. He's a big strong guy, with an impressive range of punishing holds. If you want a hard and horny fight - lock up with him!
