small gladiator is recommended by Billboi
Met Small Gladiator today at a grapevine group meet in Barnet. He is physically very strong and fit, knows what he is doing and should not be underestimated. He is a really friendly guy and I look forward to meeting again.
Billboi is recommended by small gladiator
I met Billboi on Saturday at Barnet he is powerfully built wrestler with plenty of skills to challenge other wrestlers. Billboi is a friendly guy with a good scene of humour. Billoi is well worth having a match with and I hope to see him again soon.
small gladiator is recommended by Celticmuscle
Had the chance to meet this super guy at a group meet in Walthamstow. Despite a large size advantage in my favor this fearless warrior had no hesitation in calling me out. Once we locked up it was clear this man had some real training and experience backing him up. Skilled, tough, determined, he has it all. A really enjoyable few rounds complemented by some great conversation and jokes. And a huge thank you to him for attending to a bloody sore leg injury I picked up soon after our match....he has a healing touch!
Celticmuscle is recommended by small gladiator
I met Celticmuscle at Walthamstow, he is good wrestler and fighter with lots of skill and technique and despite his weight advantage we still had a great wrestling match. Off the mats Celticmuscle is a big hearted wonderful man with a great sense of humour. I would certainly love to do some more wrestling with Celticmuscle and his recommendations are well deserved.

Stood up to me in a real full on fight and was utterly destroyed.
small gladiator is recommended by Sockfighter1
small gladiator has the perfect combination of skill and restraint which made the match enjoyable. He put me through my paces, won handsomely and was entirely magnanimous. If you are looking for a good work out with an exceptionally strong and gifted wrestler, small gladiator is your man.
small gladiator is recommended by phyta123
Very good, experience, safe wrestler. Keeps to agreed limits.
I didn't want to stop wrestling this guy. Looking forward to our next mat session.
Met Small Gladiator at Barnet mat room as planned for this weekend. Small Gladiator is a solid and sane wrestler who was willing to come down to my feable level. He is probably the best wrestler I've met on here and he is not at all boastful about his abilities. He gave me time and patience, passing across wrestling and safety advice and tips which I am very grateful even though I am beginning to feel very sore nearly all over. We practiced getting into and out of holds and ended the session with a very nice coffee and chat.
So good and rare to meet someone on here that hasn't attitude issues.
We plan to meet again.
phyta123 is recommended by small gladiator
I had a private wrestling session with phyta123 yesterday afternoon, We had a number of wrestling sessions followed by training and coaching tips etc. Phyta123 has a good amount of wrestling and was very good when it came to me showing him techniques. We had a good coffee and chat afterwards which was an excellent way to end a great afternoon of wrestling.
small gladiator is recommended by brazilwrestler86
Just realized I didn’t write small gladiator a recommendation from when we met ! Big sorry as he’s an amazing wrestler ! We met at high barnet in a group meet and as an introvert , group meet can be a bit uncomfortable , however small gladiator was very kind and he helped me break the ice a bit . Well that kindness stops when you enter the ring with him ! There it’s a completely different story as he is a rough and experienced fighter ! Loved all the rolls we had and hope to be wrestling him many more times in the future !
brazilwrestler86 is recommended by small gladiator
I had great fun getting beaten by this bjj muscle power house in a friendly wrestling match. His knowledge of cage / mma fighting came to the for as soon as he got on the mats and willing to share points and techniques with those he wrestled with. He is a powerful wrestler / mma fighter but very friendly with it. I hope we get chance to meet up again soon.
small gladiator is recommended by Ricotewrestler
There’s nothing SMALL really about this guy but there’s lots of GLADIATOR! In the good sense of the word. Very all around sound grappler who is vastly experienced and knows way too much his job! Very tough to beat and very resilient and controlling at times ! Lots of fun and of course I’m counting on meeting him and wrestling him again many times to come !.,,,cheers mate !
small gladiator is recommended by Mark uk
Nov17. Had the opportunity to roll with SG a few times at the recent Barnet meet. Great guy and knows how to wrestle. Off the mat he's also great conversation. A nice afternoon with a bunch of very cool guys
Mark uk is recommended by small gladiator
On Saturday I had the great privilege of wrestling with Mark. He is one of the best and friendliest wrestling I have met. He was able to go at the pace and level of his opponents and wash both friendly and charming off the mats. If you are ever privileged enough to get the chance to wrestle with Mark you will not in the least be disappointed. Thank you very much Mark for wrestling with me.
small gladiator is recommended by sub aqua
Most recently met at a group meet in Barnet. A bit of an escape artist for sure - don't know how! Ontop of that, very skilled and strong - and doesn't mind passing a few tricks on too!
Great with beginners and experts alike - great all-round opponent who I'd recommend for sure!
sub aqua is recommended by small gladiator
I met sub_aqua on Saturday in Barnet, he is a good wrestler with a good combination of skill and experience. I found him both sane and safe and with a friend disposition both on and off the mats and a great sense of humour. Well worth having a match with.
alexxwrestler is recommended by small gladiator
Alex is a very fast and skilled wrestler and fighter but a great combination of fitness, skill and speed to make a formidable opponent. Please do not be fouled by his size, he more than makes up for that in his fitness and skill. Alex with give you a very good wrestling match.
small gladiator is recommended by DenverWrestler
I had the pleasure of wrestling this tough grappler at a group meet at Barnet early in October. His profile name is entirely appropriate – he's not a big guy, but certainly wrestles like one! In spite of my weight advantage, he was on top most of the match, and I struggled to eventually get any submissions on him. He's strong, fit, and skilled, is very competitive with guys bigger than him, and he's a nice guy to boot! I was very pleased that it worked out to meet him at Barnet and look forward to a rematch on my next UK trip.
DenverWrestler is recommended by small gladiator
I had great time wrestling DenverWrestler in Barnet in October. He was a skilled opponent who made me work hard and gave me a great time. DenverWrestler has a great combination of good wrestling skills n techniques with friendship and a real gentleman and sportsman.
small gladiator is recommended by ShockR
03/09/2017 - Of all the guys that wrestled at Sportsbolt Club, Small Gladiator (Patrick) was the only one similar in stature to me so I guess it was even stevens. He went at my level, much appreciated so recommended for a wrestle
ShockR is recommended by small gladiator
I meet ShockR at Vauxhall and we did plenty of wrestling and a bit of coaching as well. He is a good wrestler and a very friendly guy. I was able to gentle show him some stuff. Off the mats he was friendly. I look forward to wrestling him again.
WillLondon is recommended by small gladiator
A friend guy who likes to wrestle and will to learn. Also remember what he has been shown. Well worth having a match with and train. He is able to handle himself well and give a good account of himself on the mats. I look forward to having another match with him again soon.
small gladiator is recommended by danwrestle

small gladiator is recommended by Cymrofight
I met Smallgladiator at a group meet for Bigkahunnamb in Manchester. He says he's had several years of proper freestyle training, and it really shows. Some gloriously positioned holds in his repertoire and proper knowledge of how to generate the maximum discomfort with minimal effort! On top of that, a pleasant chap. Totally recommended for a good clean freestyle match with amazing footwork!
Cymrofight is recommended by small gladiator
A big guy with plenty of power and skill to make wrestling enjoyable. We were able to share grappling techniques will his training in bjj and mine in wrestling and judo. Certainly well worth wrestling and a good sense of humour off the mats as well,
grovepark4u is recommended by small gladiator
I have meet grovepark4u many times and over a number of years. He was the first guy to seriously help me with my wrestling skills and techniques. Since then we have become great friends. It does not matter about the level of wrestling you are at he will always give you a good match. If you are a novice and need help grovepark4u is a great coach and teacher. If you get the chance to wrestle grovepark4u or use his fantastic facilities then do so, you will not be disappointed.

small gladiator is recommended by MEGRAPPLE
Met this "small Gladiator" at today Barnet meet.
Although small he certainly packs a punch and is a real pleasure to wrestle. He's skilled, agile and knows his stuff. I would recommend you met him for a great relaxed wrestle. I'm sure I will meet this fun wrestler again sooner than later.
MEGRAPPLE is recommended by small gladiator
Met up and wrestled with MEGRAPPLE yesterday and had a couple of decent matches with him . He is a big friendly guy with plenty of wrestling skill and some good experience. Off the mats he is a friendly with a good sense of humour. Well worth meeting and wrestling match.
small gladiator is recommended by fitguy2
Was a bit apprehensive meeting this guy as had seen in his profile he was "trained and well experienced wrestler, with experience in both national & international competitions" and he had "Gladiator" in his title! I need not have feared as he put me at ease from the start by checking on experience and type of match, and we ended up having a great wrestle. It was very easy to communicate with him throughout
small gladiator is recommended by v vv v
Patrick was a skillful wrestler with lots of experience. He's on top of me most of time in our bout which was tough and competitive yet safe and sane. He kindly shared some tips about wrestling during the match also. Off the mat, he's fun and easy to chat with. Thanks Patrick for the sweaty bout and hope we could grapple again soon :)
v vv v is recommended by small gladiator
A good wrestler who was tough and very keen. He is a safe and safe opponent and able to go with the flow when I was turning him over. Off the mats v vv v is a friendly guy with a good sense of humour and fun.
I hope to wrestle him again soon.
small gladiator is recommended by Tynesider
I finally had a long and eagerly awaited match with Patrick at Pippa's. yesterday.
It was as rough as promised but the agreed rule was adhered to. He is a safe competitor who never gave up and be battled on to the end. I hope this is the first of many matches.
One word will sum up both Patrick and the fight - EXCELLENT!!!
small gladiator is recommended by Squashlad
30/09/2016: It was great to finally get a good hard match in with small gladiator at the Grove Park ring. Given my height and weight advantage I should have been all over him, but he's a very experienced guy and skilled at biding his time when needed and then attacking explosively when the opportunity presents itself, so getting anything out of him was a lot of hard work. Taking him down to the mats, in particular, really had me sweating. It'd be great to grapple with him again and he is highly recommended---especially if you like your wrestling rough!
small gladiator is recommended by resl4top
I had a short but very competitive and enjoyable bout with small_gladiator at a Barnet meet some time ago. He is clearly very experienced, has loads of strength, skill, stamina and determination. A really good opponent.
resl4top is recommended by small gladiator
I met this excellent wrestler / fighter at a group event at Barnet in June. resl4top has great wrestling and martial arts skills. He is very fit and with speed and flexibility. A well worthy opponent and I look forward to meeting resl4top again soon.

Patient with beginners,gave me a proper work-out. Good company off the mat as well. Cheers !
small gladiator is recommended by rezla123
A short match at the Barnet group event, this guy clearly knows what he's doing & impressed over the session. Also very nice of him to help me get involved. Has his own style though and despite me being bigger he had a good go at bringing it to me
rezla123 is recommended by small gladiator
A highly skilled and well experienced wrestler who is quick and very well trained. He is able to match your level for an opponent who is a novice and unsure to an opponent who is well skilled and trained. He is very strong on the mats, but equally very kind as well. Well worth having a match with,

A good opponent who is willing to share his knowledge. I enjoyed wrestling this seasoned fighter. We have had some excellent bouts together and today was no exception. Good company off the mat too.
small gladiator is recommended by bentleyboyuk
Met this Guy at the Grove Park Ring in London. He is a real Gentleman outside of the ring. but NOT inside lol. Very experienced and patient too. Also has a GSOH and grins like the Cheshire Cat when applying a submission hold . Safe, sane and sorted. I would deffo meet again and recommend him to others.

I had a great bit of rough and tumble with small_gladiator yesterday. Very grateful he was the first to drag me onto the mats. Looking forward to the next time.

After chatting on and off over many years, finally got to meet this guy at Grove Park. Real treat. Technical, aggressive, safe, sane, good sense of humour. Patrick clearly shows his experience and it was a pleasure to meet up wit him and Bristolskin68
Dragonbear is recommended by small gladiator
I met up with Dragonbear on Saturday afternoon at Grove Park. He is a big strong man with plenty of go about him. Dragonbear was a great wrestle with a good sense of humour. A tough guy who does not like to submit. A good opponent, well worth meeting.
small gladiator is recommended by bikerskinnw
Pleasure to wrestle Small Gladiator, a very experienced wrestler who started competing internationally in the 90s. Way out of my league but very good at explaining what he was doing and why. Great guy to chat with off the mats, too. Thanks - look forward to next time.
small gladiator is recommended by Torrnado
I have met Patrick at several past events where I found him a patient instructor.
He used his awesome fighting skills to great advantage during a warm up match with me at Pippas last Saturday. Easy going guy off the mats and well worth meeting.

Small gladiator knows his stuff and you can tell by his wealth of experience. Was a good coach and patient teacher. Enjoyed grappling with him, he was responsive. Definitely worth meeting him. Nice guy to chat to. Recommended!

Great guy with technical skill and willing to share his knowledge. Friendly and easy to get along with, highly recommend.
small gladiator is recommended by ImtiazAli
I met small gladiator, on Saturday 14th June at the Manchester Meet.
Interesting and intelligent person (wrestler), who knows how to catch a guy out. Safe and sane too, at all time. He is also willing to teach wrestlers, develop their skills.
Had a meal too, and he has a intriguing sense of fun. I would happily accept the challenge to go against him, again.
small gladiator is recommended by BSF
I met Patrick at the Grapevine meet at Barnet and had a good match with him. It's obvious he knows his stuff backwards and I didn't really stand a chance, but it was good to go up against him and I got a bit of coaching too
small gladiator is recommended by readyforit
I had seen small gladiator's profile about two years ago and pleased that he was not too far from my weight and height had challenged him.
Before we had time to arrange a meet I chanced upon him at an open wrestling session in High Barnet. Seeing him in action made me regret I had ever challenged him to a match as he despatched his opponent(s) with skill and ease. His wrestling knowledge was as obvious as it was intimidating and that day I hoped he would not remember my challenge. We have not had that match YET but seeing him on the mats prompted me to ask him to train me. To my delight he agreed. He is an excellent and patient trainer and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their skill. Although a warm, kind, lovely man possessing a wicked sense of humour, he is a serious, no nonsense trainer and he pushes his pupils to the best of their ability.
Thanks to him my wrestling bouts with other guys have become even more exciting as I slowly learn and apply new moves and acquire a larger repertoire of holds. In a not too distant future I think I'll be confident enough to challenge him for a match. So watch this space.
readyforit is recommended by small gladiator
I have been training readyforit approximately twice monthly for nearly a year now. In that time he has developed a good basic skill set, effective techniques and a proficient wrestling style. I am no longer training a novice but now taking a wrestler from basic skills set to using strategy and the ability to plan ahead. I enjoy training this wrestler.
small gladiator is recommended by daveylad
Had the pleasure of grappling with small gladiator at Barnet yesterday. Small, tough and tenacious yet safe and sane at same time. I know he modified his style down for me as I am just a "newbie" ....but still put me in some good holds. Looking forward to next bout - maybe you can do some reverse face sitting then..???
small gladiator is recommended by wrestlerherts
Plenty of verbal beforehand and good skilled grappler - a pleasure to batter :-)
small gladiator is recommended by dadwrestle
Definitely worth meeting this little power house! Don't underestimate his skill either!
dadwrestle is recommended by small gladiator
I have wrestled with dadwrestle a number of times and all of them have been good fun with technical skills and ability used rather than his sheer size. He respects limits and adapts so that even small guys like can have good have fun without the risk of injury. I look forward to another session with him soon.
