JT: Yeah, I completely agree with that. I think if you want to be a Greco Olympic and World champion, you shouldn’t wrestle in college because you’re just wasting your time.

from the feet the styles are very similar, but, the difference between good and great is par terre... if you are not training that with a purpose you are falling behind...

Not just that. Huge difference in defense and finishing TDs. The quadpod position is critical. Not getting exposed after you get in on a leg or two is critical. Having a good chest lock or front headlock is lethal in freestyle and next to useless in folkstyle.

 

The basic fundamentals of position are the same, but the rest is not so similar, even from the feet.

Can't be too fun getting your ass kicked by nearly everyone in the room. Couldn't or didn't want to, get off the bottom. The when he did take someone down he couldn't turn or keep them down.
