The difference between Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling

Freestyle wrestling allows for attacks, using the lower extremities and focusing on shooting for the legs, grape vining, and pinning, while Greco-Roman wrestling emphasizes on all throws from holds above the waist.

Besides it, there are very specific points system used in Freestyle Wrestling which includes takedowns, reversals, exposure, penalty as well as out of bounds. A wrestler can win a Freestyle match by way of pin, technical pin, judges’ decision, default, disqualification, or even by a ten-point difference. Additionally, it puts a lot of focus on destroying the balance of an opponent through tackles, speedy attacking and defensive moves.

Unlike Freestyle Wrestling, Greco-Roman Wrestling focuses on using the upper body parts to execute a variety of different moves to secure a victory. The objective of Greco-Roman Wrestling is to defeat the opponent over three rounds (two minutes each round) using a variety of upper-body techniques. The match ends when there is an eight-point difference.

Greco-Roman Wrestling involves lots of dynamic skills, such as throws using the upper body, and is eye-catching for its raw power. Bouts can often remain in the balance until the final seconds, when a wrestler may take advantage of a tiny opening and skilfully execute a spectacular throw and technical fall to win the contest.
