SF GRAPPLER MEETS ARE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED
We can't hold meets during the pandemic,

Until then, we'll miss you all very much!
Please take care of yourselves and those around you.
Hey men! Come grapple with us!
We're a group of friendly gay, bi, and gay-friendly men who love to wrestle.
It's very simple: We rent a great space, set up mats, and wrestle! By sticking to the basics, we have great fun. Men of all ages and sizes join us! You can come and go as you like, and participate as much as you like. It's informal, friendly, fun, and safe.
Want to join us? Just come by! No need to contact us first—more details are below.
Check us out on Facebook. Or to send us an email.

What do we do?
- Come together for a brief welcome
- Warmup/stretch for 10 minutes
- Open mats until 9:15 - 9:30 pm
- We practice no-gi submission type wrestling.
- No-gi means that you're not required to wear the traditional judo-type white garment (you can if you want to).
- Submission type wrestling means that the match is over when you or your opponent taps out.
What to wear?
- A wrestling singlet, gym clothes (with or without a shirt), compression shorts, gi ... whatever you like.
- Our facility offers a chilled, filtered water dispenser that you can use to fill a water bottle.
We also offer a jug of lemon-lime sports drink made with chilled, filtered water from the dispenser. Cups are available.
- Maximum safety emphasized at all times:
- Mats are sanitized to professional standards prior to each meet.
- Showers are available afterward (we supply liquid bodywash, but please bring your own towel).
What about sex play?
- We offer a very relaxed, physically friendly, fun and joyous but non-sexual environment for gay, bi, and gay-friendly men.
- While many guys feel this is a pleasantly sexy thing, please understand that sex acts are not a part of our meets. We're about the fun of submission wrestling.
Curious? Please come see us! You'll be very welcome.
