Muscle-Match VS All Natural KO

Wow, have I neglected my blog! Life gets busy sometimes I guess but I have had a ton of matches these last few months. So I am getting back on track here to make sure I get to tell the world about them. Seems only fitting that my first such entry is about a dear friend who's blog helped inspire me to start this one! :)

This past week I had the pleasure of matching muscles against the awesome "Hard as Fuk!" KO! This girl is pure kick-ass! Simple as that. Besides having a body to die for she has such an alluring and fun competitive personality to match. Seriously check out her blog [] after you've read this to see what I mean. She is the perfect embodiment of "Sexy meets Strong!" :) We had wrestled once before this past summer and had both put each other through the physical wringer!

We'd lock limbs and go at it like caged animals pulling each other into grips, pins, scissors, each fall lasting 10 minutes or more! She'd tap, then I'd tap... back and fourth... more or less wearing each other out by the end, finally ending up locked in a mutual body scissors where I was able to shock her with a hard earned submission from my soccer toned legs. If you've seen this girl's thighs, believe me that's an accomplishment!

We were so blown away by the great grapple chemistry we had with each other that we did a few rounds on video the next day, but alas the footage was lost!

So this week I was eager to meet up with this awesome female gladiator again. How close would we be this time? I would have to say I am stronger than half a year ago, having done alot of wrestling with a good number of skilled opponents. I was liking my chances at first!

I met her in the hallway on her way back to her room and the first thing I noticed as she waved there smiling in her daisy dukes and crop top were her thighs! They seemed more massive than before, packed with raw muscle, her abs looked like a washboard of tanned feminine steel and her arms looked like they could break ribs all on their own. I felt a definite chill of excitement as we said our hellos and got into our set up.

She kneeled across the mats from me as we stared each other down. She looked amazingly strong! We inched toward each other finally locking up and pulling each other to the mats. My arms went for triangle locks and head locks but her arms were more than an match to neutralize the strength in mine as she would lock my arms against her immobilizing them. Our thighs interlocked and squeezed neither of us able to out flex the other from the neutral position.

As we muscled back and fourth it seemed we were both dead even again, except both of us stronger this time! She wrapped her thighs around my waist and squeezed me in a devastating body scissors! Where I was able to hold out fairly well in our last encounter I quickly felt her thighs drain all the strength in my core and I was forced to submit to her anaconda-like vice! Similarly, I was able to trap her in some body scissors of my own and where I would have a fairly quick submission last time I found myself having to lock that squeeze in deep and long to wear down those powerful abs, finally eliciting a moan from her when I finally forced a submission.

Again we were even, with me having a little extra skill on her and KO having a definite strength edge on me. Both of us determined as hell. At the end of our private roll together we were tied 2-2. Then things got very interesting. As we had planned previously we wanted to video some of our falls. So we fired up the cameras and did a few rounds each on her cam and on mine. So I am excited to say that there will be video of the rest of this encounter available in the future! And let me tell you, as competitive as we are naturally together, you better believe the pride factor gets ramped up once the camera turns on!

KO is truly amazing to wrestle with. She is so friendly, yet so hell bent on dominating in a match. It's a very fun paradox to get swept up in. If we weren't all the way across the country I'm sure we would go at it lots more often! I am already eager to see how we compare in our next eventual struggle! :)

Oil Wrestling: Hanz VS Veve Lane

This is actually from a match that happened a while back but it's pretty classic in my opinion. There is ALOT of quick action in this match and it was VERY competitive! Veve and I are long time friends but also pretty intense rivals once we get on the mats. I was confident I would have the experience advantage since this was Veve's first ever oil match, however the lighter competitor tends to benefit more from the ability to slip and slide so easily in and out of locks. Can Veve acclimate herself fast enough to adapt to wrestling in oil? Or will she get crushed before she can get going? This vid is definitely worth a watch if you are a fan of or curious about trying oil wrestling.

Match vs Rachel Sinclair now available in her store!

Check it out! The match I had with Rachel Sinclair (previously blogged about in June) is now on sale in her store! This was a super intense first time ever meeting between the two of us and the action did not disappoint. Neither of us held back so it was anyone's match to win! You can really get a sense of Rachel's level of competitiveness and not to mention how damn fun it is to be on the mats with her. :) Worth a watch if I do say so myself. And I do! Round one is up now with round 2 soon to follow. Rachel is coming back to NYC in October so a rematch could very well be in the works!

Match VS Cindy of Tampa

Squared-off in a grapple with Cindy from Tampa (of Shefighters fame!) in a hard fought struggle! We had gone at it once before a year or so back with me edging her out in a very fun battle with MMA gloves. My arms were really sore from that! If you have not tried it, grappling with those gloves on makes your hands way easier to grasp and as a result you end up struggling in ways different from how you would bare-handed.

We set out the mats and got right into it! The first fall was really long with both of us reversing the momentum several times. In addition to the fact that Cindy has training she is hella-strong and fit. Even though I have some good size on her when we would get into mutual locks, there was no quit in her as she would eagerly try to out crush me with sheer strength!

After a good 10 to 15 minute marathon I finally slipped her into an arm triangle and stretched her out for the first submission! Though frustrated, Cindy was undaunted as she was eager to even the score. This girl, though a sweetie, definitely has an intense competitive streak! We went at it for a few more long and active falls with each of us fighting for position the whole way!

Eventually I was able to slide my legs around her and force her to concede at least two more times! (We had a couple falls end prematurely, one from a safety/mats check and one from mutual exhaustion.) All in all it was a very fun match and for me a much needed win against a tough opponent!

Pitch-black grappling challenge vs Roxi Vicious!!!

Had a rematch against my now long time rival Roxi Vicious with an interesting twist! Half of the match was a standard submission challenge. The second half was new for both of us but something we had both heard about. Grappling with no light what-so-ever. In our last match Roxi had steamrolled me pretty good so I was eager for revenge!

We squared off for the first part of out challenge in the same space as the previous encounter. I managed to keep things much more competitive this time gaining top position and going for chokes! She was able to fend me off though in the long run and wore me out with her strength! Roxi had been upping her Yoga routines since our last battle and had added kettle-bells to her workout regimen. Her arms and shoulders were noticeably stronger! Slowly she would wear me down in a python-like struggle, muscling out of my arm-submission attempts and locking my legs up in a lower body stalemate. Each fall was close and hard fought but Roxi again edged me out 4 to 1.

Soaked in sweat we hit the lights and continued in complete darkness. A very interesting experience as we went at it, both of us only able to sense strategy by the feel of the other's body movements. The falls felt longer by comparison and I could feel Roxi working hard against me, but much like before her strength was too much as I felt my arms tire in the struggle against hers and she was able to wrap me up into more submissions, winning the darkness part of our challenge also by a score of 4 to 1.

The only two submissions I was able to secure were both body scissors, proving that my legs were still a force to be reckoned with. But I was clearly out muscled in my arms and shoulders and unable to sink in my trademark arm triangle. Clearly, some kettle-bell routines of me own need to happen!

Another fun and really intense struggle for sure!

Exhausting Grapple vs Gianna!

So upon returning from a nice relaxing trip I faced Gianna in a competitive submissions only 1 hour grapple! I had seen her in action vs Veve Lane on at least two occasions and knew I was in for a fight against a very skilled grappler! We met at the venue after a little bit of phone tag and set up the mats in one of the rooms in the same facility as my previous two bouts.

Gianna is as stunning in person as she is in her photos and was playfully teasing as we set up the mats that she was confident of a win against me. I teased back politely but was inwardly determined not to give her any easy wins on my account! As we sized each other up on the mats things seemed overall even. I knew she had skill and experience in her favor as she has been training on and off since the late 90's! I had size on her and I was pretty sure I had her beat in strength and as for endurance, time would soon tell!

We came together in the middle of the mats as Gianna quite gently scooted closer and into position, legs ahead of her, the sure sign of a strategic fighter! I moved in and tried to lock in close against her but she pretty expertly used her ankles against my hips in a rubber guard to control my weight. She would flip me over and try to get on top as I would then use my strength and my legs to sweep and roll her back to her back, where she would very quickly hook her ankles in again and flip me back to my back!

We went at it like this for quite a while! The first 45 minutes were excruciatingly tiring! Gianna managed to submit me with various chokes a few times, including a super tight triangle which she admitted to being a bit surprised that I had almost lasted and battled out of! When I was able to pass her guard and get in close against her, my overall strength advantage became clear. Gianna has extremely strong arms that are almost as strong as mine that made arm-locking her exhaustingly tough! But once I was able to lock her up in my trusty anaconda/arm-triangle I was able to squeeze a satisfying submission from her that had her cursing in competitive (but still friendly) frustration!

I had done well for myself thus far! Gianna was ahead 3 to 1, but I had managed to keep her on the defensive for much of the match and she was admitting to feeling alot more fatigue than she thought she was going to! If I could keep going I might be able to even it up and wear her out.

In the last 15 minutes endurance came into play as Gianna managed to keep her pace up as I felt my muscles burning and tiring! She started putting my on the defensive more scoring a couple of pretty dominating rear naked chokes, snaking her legs around my hips as her arms contracted around my face like vices! Damn she was strong at locking that in! Pulling at her arms to get free was useless! And the slipperiness from such a hard fought match aided as she would eventually slip her biceps against my throat.

After choking me to submission she would gleefully hold her hands in front of my face before unwrapping her legs, giggling and taunting and holding up fingers to display the score as the match quickly lopsided in her favor. 4 to 1, 5 to 1, 6 to 1 all in quick succession! Finally after squeezing her way to a 7th submission the match was over! Both of us were tired but it was clear she had worn my body out and outlasted me in a match of endurance! All other stats between us at least came close to balancing us out.

We're already thinking of doing a rematch in the winter so I will have to try to work up my endurance for that one! Not to mention I feel like if I had worked at chokes from mount and half guard instead of struggling so much with her equally strong arms I might have been able to score a few more submissions in the first 45 minutes when I was holding my own! Time will tell!

Gianna is a very fun opponent! Clearly hot. Very sweet, yet with a definite ultra-competitive streak! It will be fun to see if I can manage to frustrate her a bit more next time! hehehe!

Face-off vs Gianna possibly in the works! stay tuned! ;) ...meanwhile vacation continues!

Decimated by Roxi Vicious!

So not long after my match with Veronica Vicious, her grapple-sis Roxi comes into town again looking to rumble. We pretty much go at it monthly whenever she visits the city. The last few rounds together had gone pretty well. 2 rounds ago was the one I actually beat her by a couple submissions and the one after that she won by about 6 to 3. This time around however I was simply not prepared to handle the onslaught she brought against me.

Roxi is about 5'9 and 150 lbs of fit statuesque beauty. She is at least as strong as I am in both upper and lower body, if not stronger. So I really relish when I am able to take the fight to her, but truth be told, kinda love it when she makes me feel so helpless too.

So we set up the mats ironically in the same exact spot where me and her sis had gone at it previously. It was during a heat wave in the city so the room was pretty hot. When we squared off I was determined to take her down but she was just as determined and was just too much for me. She out wrestled, out muscled and out struggled me over and over, racking up submission after submission with everything from chokes to scissors. Always with a devilish giggle as she would overwhelm my whole body.

I was only able to steal a couple points. One was a scissors and the other was a slippery rear naked choke that I was able to get aided by the heat as she couldn't stop me from slipping my arm around her neck. The score was ridiculously lop-sided, something like 12 to 2 in her favor! So she got some pretty vicious revenge on me but we will be having a rematch soon!

Whenever I get beat by a game opponent it motivates me to do something to train and get myself better for the next fight. With Roxi, it's always a total challenge! Technique, strength and endurance. She's been getting stronger and stronger too! So I have alot to train up to for our next battle. Can't wait though! :)

Devon D'amo visits NYC

Devon D'amo came to NYC looking for a scrap and I was oh so happy to oblige! We go back a little bit, having met when she was an invited guest at the Grapple Den party. We kept meeting up after and I am proud to be able to call her a good friend. You would think this fondness would make us take it a little bit easy on each other but in fact the opposite is true. We get more tooth and nail with each and every encounter, more competitive and determined to out do each other than perhaps we would be if we did not know each other as well. Devon is brutally tough to submit! At 5'3'' she pretty eagerly goes power vs power against me and more than holds her own.

We started out with a short 20 minute-ish video challenge that ended up going the best of 5 falls with the winner grabbing a last minute submission after holding off an onslaught of a comeback from the... "not-winner" lol. I think this makes a total of 5 or 6 video challenges between the two of us, though they have not all yet been released. you can find all of them so far though at:

After the vid we shut down the cam and settled our personal score going at it for an exhausting but fulfilling amount of falls over the next two hours! The video winner ended up about 2 submissions down by the end after trading the lead 3 or 4 times. ;)

After the match we met up with a couple friends including Jacquelyn Velvets (of for drinks and dancing downtown thereby making it a pretty awesome day for this guy here, lol. Fun times were had by all till the wee hours of the next morning here in NYC. I always miss Devon when she leaves like I'm a sick little puppy. But she'll be back to try and even the score before too long. We've gotten too competitive to just let it stand and settle. So till next time Devon! GRRR! ;)

Rematch with Rachel Sinclair!

Had a rematch with the lovely Rachel Sinclair! It was kinda impromptu as we discovered that evening that we were a mere two blocks away from each other while texting and we decided then and there that it's on! I had such a blast with this girl the first time we went at it the day before so it was exciting to get to continue our battle! My legs were still freshly sore from her grapevine which is a damn tight hold for sure!

We met up at her place and went at it for the next hour plus! We traded submission back and fourth as we did the day previous. Rachel's legs are a pretty lethal combination of alluring sensuality and raw squeezing power! More than once she would draw me in against her and then make me pay for it in a crushing full body squeeze or more painful yet, her patented grapevine!

We found that we were pretty even in overall squeezing power as the struggle went on (though she did gain one of her submissions by overpowering my legs with hers in a mutual leg-lock). The hour was almost up when we squared off one more time and she asked me if I thought I was ready for this fall. Of course I was! "Well good," she says with her cute yet dangerous smile "because we're tied 2-2!"

We had been chatty and social a lot in our previous falls. Competitive but fun. But what followed was the longest most intense single fall I have done in recent memory. Subdued were the giggles and taunts for the most part as we wrestled back and fourth for what might have been a full 10 minutes! We were both totally into it and both determined to win. We were drenched in sweat as Rachel's legs would gently slide around mine looking for an opportunity to draw me into one of her "death-hugs!" We both got each other in our best holds only to have each of us slip out in a nick of time. Finally after a long intense battle I managed to get her to submit with my soccer trained legs around her middle. And considering the last person to ever get Rachel to submit in a scissors was Julie Squeeze, I consider that quite an accolade!

So that was our re-match! The first of many I am sure! No video of it this time around but there's always next time for that. Rachel Sinclair is such a fun match! She is super fit with the figure of a super model, endless physical stamina and is so cute it'll make you melt. If you get the chance to meet her you won't regret it. Can't wait till she comes back to my neck of the woods! :)

NYC Wrestling Showcase Recap

So the showcase was a complete success! There was much fierce grappling to be seen and I was there blogging about all of it from my phone, lol. It's an imperfect feature because I can't put titles in and I have to keep the posts very short but oh well, maybe I'll learn better soon.

So all the matches were really good and I am pretty sure there were no draws. It was interesting to see the intermingling of fighting styles as some participants have ju-jitsu backgrounds while others are more submission wrestling. The crowd fav definitely seemed to be Clobberetta vs the Bulk (and I don't blame them as it was pretty high enegery!). If I had to choose a personal favorite I would probably pick Sherry Stunns vs Amazon Annie as it was a pretty epic power struggle with both girls very determined to win. But again, all matches were very awesome!

I highly recommend attending these events as it's a great place to mingle between matches and you never know who you'll get to talk to. The highlight for yours truly (who was not scheduled in any matches this time around just FYI) came when Rachel Sinclair called me out in a video match challenge! You can see her WB270 here:

Rachel is an absolute sweetheart in person and I have seen her online for a while so it was very exciting to get the chance to face her for the first time on cam. :) So we came back the second day where there were a few extra matches being filmed that were not headliners at the showcase and we went at it in a competitive grapple for 2 five-minute rounds. So let me tell you! Don't let the fact that this girl is really cute fool you. She is really strong, super fit and has great stamina! We traded holds and squeezes all through the first round with neither of us being able to finish off the other. But in the second round submissions were definitely had! I'll post a link and possibly a trailer when I see it go online. It was very competitive but also super fun and I'm sure there will be a rematch in the near future! GRRR!!

So that's my recap! Excellent matches, even more excellent people! You can bet I'll be back for more at the next one. :)

Finally set this up!

I have been told time and time again how much I should consider doing a blog with all the adventures I have in the mixed wrestling world. So that fine day has finally come at last!

Chances are, if you're reading this, that you know me in some way already. But if not, here's the short of it. I am Hanz Vanderkill of NYC. I have been into mixed wrestling for about as long as I can remember. I do sessions as well as find friends to grapple with. Since moving to NYC I have been able to expand on my hobby thanks in large part to my involvement in Grapple Den, NYC's premiere underground wrestling party and my friends the DoomMaidens. So there you have it! There will be much more to talk about soon as I am coming off one of my busiest grappling months in recent memory. So if you're still reading this, thanks for checking it out!
