Collegiant wrestling A. Rules B. StyleWrestling is broken into four different types based on rules and style; Freestyle, Professional, Greko Roman, and Collegiant. Free style is usually startedafter school is let out for the summer. The rules of Free style wrestling arepretty simple.
Both wrestlers start in the standing position for all threerounds. Each round is two minutes long, and the person with the most points atthe end of the third round wins. Free style wrestling is done on a mat,approximately two inches thick and is half the size of a basketball court. Theout of bounds area on the mat is marked by a circle; so no one gets hurt bybeing thrown off the mat. There are several ways to score points, takedowns,throws, and pins.
Takedowns are when one wrestler has the other wrestler undercontrol on the mat, all four extremities are touching the mat. In Free style,after a takedown both wrestlers start back at the standing position. Takedownsare worth one point, because using the legs is not favorable in Free style. Throws are exactly what is sounds like, one wrestler throws the other one. Twoto four points can be awarded depending on the height of the throw. The higherthe more points.
After a throw both wrestlers start back at the standingposition. A pin in Free style is when one wrestlers shoulder blades roll on themat. You do not have to hold a wrestler down for a count of three to get a pinin Free style. Free style is basically practice for the Collegiant wrestlingseason.
Professional wrestling is done in a boxing ring, the rules are vague,but the sport is very entertaining. They can hit each other with chairs, bodyslam from the top ropes, and even throw each other out of the ring! I think theonly rule they have is no biting. Professional wrestling is done for theentertainment of others. Greko Roman wrestling also has three rounds and is played on a mat.
Thereal difference in Greko Roman is that you can not use the legs at all. Toscore points in this type of wrestling you must throw your opponent. The higheryou throw your opponent the more points you receive. You can win if you throwyour opponent and pin him, similar to Free style.
Greko Roman is played in theoff season after the Free style season is over. Greko Roman like Free style isfor practice for the Collegiant season. Very few people wrestle only GrekoRoman. Collegiant wrestling is for high school, college students, and theOlympics. It is played on a mat of similar size and boundaries.
There arethree rounds which are two minutes long. The first is started in the standingposition, in the second round there is a coin toss. Whoever wins the coin tossgets to choose what position the wants to start the second round in. Thechoices are up, down, or standing. Up is the term for the other wrestler is onall fours with you behind him, one hand on the belly-button the other on theelbow.
One knee must be down on the mat, the other must be off the mat. Thedown position is you are on all fours and the other wrestler is in the upposition. The only advantage of being in the down position is if you are goodat reversals. A reversal is one point, and is done when the down wrestler getsin the up position or the standing position.
Escaping from the other wrestler. You can also score points by takedowns, two points. In Collegiant wrestling youcan get points by putting your opponents back at a forty-five degree angle tothe mat. Holding him there for four seconds is four points, three seconds isthree points. Pins in this type of wrestling can only be achieved by holdingboth shoulder blades to the mat for three seconds. Throws are takedowns and areonly two points.
Wrestling is very exhausting sport even though it is only sixminutes long, it seems like an eternity.Miscellaneous
