kal is recommended by maturewrestler51
We had a good long match with a variety of holds. Even though there was a considerable weight difference between us, Kal's strength and agility were very impressive making it a good fight. A great guy and good conversationalist between rounds. Looking forward to another match!

Very easy to meet up with, he has a good place for wrestling with mats. He is strong and the legs you see on the profile pic are for real. We wrestled for over two hours with solid holds. We tried new rules: after each sub the winner gets a minute to apply a free hold. This added to the man-to-man fun but still left us about even. Recommended to anyone who wants a good fair fight.
Had a great match with kal at Hackney while he was visiting London, some competitive and some give and take, with subs going both ways. He's in great shape, is deceptively strong and has a mean headlock and is out to win without being overly competitive about things. Like most of our North American cousins he's got wrestling ingrained in him from childhood, has beautiful manners and is a pleasure to chat to when taking a breather between subs and off the mats; but doesn't let the nice manners off the mats get in the way of the odd bit of mean on them! Safe, sane and reliable, he is highly recommended and I look forward to another grapple when he's back in London-town.
We met at Hackney. Squashlad was prompt and kept in good touch in planning the match. He is an affable and cheerful straight-forward guy, very fair and honourable on the mats. He is extremely resistant to holds and masks his reactions well so he can be near submission without his partner realising it. My usually devastating grapevines had no effect on his rugby legs and his thick neck made nelsons useless; he is very hard to submit. I did get two submissions, with a front headlock and a hammerlock, but he was the clear winner with four, various arm and wristlocks and a sleeper. Full points to him for a bear hug lift and takedown, and also for his standing side headlock, which though a demonstration was clearly unbreakable owing to his excellent balance on his feet and strong arms. Squashlad hosted me at a real find of a local Italian restaurant, where the chef, realising we knew his beloved hometown brought us an extra dessert. Squashlad has the strength and stamina to last two hours of friendly but competitive struggle. I highly recommend him and look forward to clashing again.
had a great time meeting Kal on and off the mats (so-called). Fortunately for me, I have a weight advantage which I had to use against him as much as possible. Looking forward to our next match. I highly recommend this gentleman.
Oldgoodie is a very strong and capable wrestler. Powerful shoulders from extensive baseball and other sports make his holds that use those muscles especially fearsome, such as headlocks and nelsons. Pleasant man to chat with. His wrestling situation is workable and I felt safe. Happy to recommend meeting him to wrestle and I plan to set up another match soon.
