Olympic Wrestling and its basics

Wrestling is a form of grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and take downs, joint locks, pins and other holds. Wrestling is one of the events that have been included in the schedule of the modern Summer Games since 1896, Athens. Since then, Summer Games wrestling has been included in every Summer Olympic Games except the 1900 Summer Games and has made a permanent place in the Olympics program.

Olympic Wrestling Styles

There are two different type of wrestling included in Olympic program are freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. These two styles are very much similar but have different rules and regulation.

Greco-Roman Wrestling:-

In Greco-Roman Wrestling, a wrestler may not attack his opponent’s legs, nor use his own legs to trip, lift or execute other moves. The wrestler must wrestle from standing without the top of his head against his opponent’s chest. This is called passivity, and will result in a call of “CONTACT” by the official. The official will say “contact red” or “contact blue” before actually indicating passivity by holding an open palm hand in the air with the offenders color indicated. There is also a slight relaxation in not requiring a high arch by the attacker when a gut wrench is initiated on the mat, plus some modifications on hand attack when escaping.

Freestyle Wrestling:-

In freestyle Wrestling, both the arms and legs may be used to execute holds or to defend against attack. If legs are used as part of the attack by an aggressor, no points are scored and the wrestlers are returned to standing. Only one official needs to see the leg usage for the move to be nullified. If legs are used to prevent a move, the attacker receives whatever points are gained, a caution point or points, and choice of position. If a throw from standing is blocked, the attacker receives 2 points plus the position choice. If a move on the mat is prevented, the attacker receives 1 point plus choice. In either case, the offender receives a single caution.

There is many clubs which provide you training for both these techniques and one of the best that I’ve know is VHW (Vougar’s Honors Wrestling). VHW Club offers a summer wrestling camp created to increase student’s wrestling skills.

They learned to plough the land, learned to seed it and they knew that if anything one wants to get then one has to struggle for it. With eating and graining food things they invented many other things for their entertainment and for getting rid of their boredness . At that time there were no cinema and movie things like, so for their entertainment they had competitions, competitions for physical strength. They invented many sports for measuring one’s physical strength and one of them was wrestling.

It was the sport that was liked and loved by everyone at that time and it is still being loved and liked around the world. Wrestling develops according and with time having its many styles, forms and techniques and now it is competed in Olympic Games. There are many sportsmen from around the world come to take part in it and I am one of them who recently participated in this hustle bustle sport wrestling in my country and local competitions. I take part from Suffolk County wrestling club.

It is the most admired wrestling club in New York where many wrestling competitions are held and many participants from nearby Counties take part in it. You can check its schedules and other updates that what is going to happen there.Wrestling is one of my favorite sports from the other strength and muscle sports. When I was a small kid I saw people doing swimming, playing Tennis, Football and other sports and I thought about them how much power and strength they have to spend on playing these sports and doing this they become strong but how much. My fondness was always towards a sport that could give me ultimate power, confidence and a real feeling of winning something winnable and I found my fondness in wrestling. I admire other sports and games too but I admire wrestling most.

In coming time I am going to take part in wrestling County Nassau where many other Counties’ wrestling winners are coming to participate. It is going to be a huge thing where many people are coming to see us. It is all New York wrestling. I suggest all young people for coming to see this club competition. It will teach you many things about wrestling because you can learn by seeing and the best with your eyes you see the best you learn. It is wrestling in long island.
