GRECO Throw stategy

Recommended Posts

Thanks to TrackWrestling I've had a chance to watch some awesome Greco matches. I'm wondering what is the strategy of lifting the guy off the mat from par terre for a throw and then walking to the edge of the mat before executing the throw. A couple of times it appeared to me that the top wrestler had a secure lock and great position to complete the throw near the center of the mat but first walked it to the edge. I would think you could lose your grip and expend a huge amount energy moving toward the edge. Were these just circumstance or is there a strategy to taking it to the edge?
