Freestyle Wrestling is a power game we all know, the sport’s rules and conventions keep it surprisingly safe and injury-free. Understanding the rules and moves of wrestling can help you enjoy watching the sport, and help you make a decision about whether or not to participate — or have your child participate.
A wrestler who has been taken down can score one point by escaping back up to a standing position. To score an escape, a wrestler must not only be standing, but must have broken any grip his opponent has on him.
If a wrestler is on his back, but not for the full three seconds, his opponent scores points for a near fall. If this is held for long enough — three to five seconds — with his back at 45 degrees or less to the mat, his opponent also scores near fall points. A near fall is worth two or three points, depending on how long the wrestler’s back was near the mat.
A referee will award penalty points to the opponent of a wrestler who commits a foul. Stalling and unsportsmanlike conduct are the most common fouls in a wrestling match. In both cases, a wrestler usually receives a warning, followed by a one-point penalty. Further infractions can be worth two points, but just as often result in disqualification.
