    The guy is apparently on the british olympic wrestling team, and just got back from training with the iran wrestling team. :eek3:

    We already have several good wrestlers, and they said this guy dominates them easily and frequently.

    Maybe my takedowns will get better!

    Just remember, guillotine is your friend against most wrestlers :)

    We've had a guy with us for a couple weeks now who was a wrestler in college and still pretty active... he refined my takedowns a lot, I can only imagine you'll improve a ton in that department.

    yeah that will definitely improve your game a lot. I think the guillotine is only good against wrestlers who have little jiu jitsu experience. The smarter wrestler will use his outside sweep singles, not exposing himself to the guillotine.

    You would be surprised how much some, even experienced, wrestlers like their double leg take downs... That's why I didn't say all :p

    what's his name?

    British wrestling isn't that strong at all, usually a lot of the wrestlers are people from Iran etc who have taken up British citizenship
