Three basic types of wrestling
Greco-Roman wrestling, freestyle wrestling, and Folkstyle (Collegiate) wrestling are the three main wrestling styles
The three basic types of wrestling matches are belt-and-jacket, catch-hold, and loose, and all appear to have originated in antiquity. Wrestling styles in which the wrestlers' clothing serves as the primary means of gripping the opponent are known as belt-and-jacket styles.
Wrestling is the most difficult sport
Wrestling is without a doubt one of the oldest sports in history, having existed for thousands of years. To succeed at the highest levels of wrestling, a combination of physical strength, speed, technical skill, and mental toughness is required, making it one of the most difficult sports to participate in.
Wrestling is a combat sport that incorporates grappling techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins, and other grappling holds. The sport can be either genuinely competitive or merely entertaining (see professional wrestling). Folkstyle, freestyle, Greco-Roman, catch, submission, judo, sambo, and other styles of wrestling exist. A wrestling match is a physical competition between two (or more) competitors or sparring partners who try to gain and keep a dominant position. There are numerous styles with varying rules, including both traditional historic and modern styles. Techniques from wrestling have been incorporated into other martial arts as well as military hand-to-hand combat systems. Wrestling is mentioned in late Old English as wrestling.
