Welcome to MCWC’s Freestyle and Greco Program where we focus on the techniques and training to prepare our athletes for competition of all levels. If you are unfamiliar with these styles of wrestling, that’s okay! If you have wrestled folkstyle we can easily transition you into being able to compete in freestyle and Greco. We encourage all of our athletes to wrestle these styles because it adds so much to an athlete’s arsenal. Here are some benefits…
Faster-Paced Matches: Freestyle and Greco matches tend to be more dynamic and quicker, requiring quicker reflexes and decision-making skills. This can translate into sharper takedowns with cleaner finishes.
Exposure to International Techniques: Freestyle and Greco are the wrestling styles contested in the Olympics, so training in it exposes you to techniques and strategies used by wrestlers from all over the world. This can broaden your wrestling knowledge and give you an edge over purely folkstyle-trained competitors.
Improved Takedown Defense: The emphasis on throws in Greco and leg attacks in freestyle makes you more adept at defending against them, leading to more well-rounded takedown defense in both styles.
- Improved Takedown Finishes: With defense being awarded points a easier, it really makes the offensive wrestler adjust and finish cleaner and quicker.
