Could a good Judoka feasibly register in a local greco-roman wrestling tournament and do well? Is there a lot of overlap in the training and skills of the two styles (we often hear that Judo is greco-roman with a gi, but how true is that?) pic related
Worth a shot, just for the experience alone, but don't expect to get very far unless you've got previous wrestling experience. The absence of a gi significantly alters grip fighting, set-ups and throw selection. Scoring and groundwork's different too.
If I'm correct
>can't touch legs with hands on the ground
>reversals - escape from back take - score a point
>pin rules are slightly different
Don't know for sure if turning over an opponent in itself will score points like in freestyle, but I think it does.
This is correct.
Just look it up unless you have greco experience like someone walking you through stuff make sure you watch stuff online. Its not at all like traditional or freestyle setups arent the same more rules and top and bottem are not in greco its a reverse suplex stance to start on top.
