Wrestling 101

Wrestling is the original human sport. It demands many of the qualities that have been revered by human beings throughout history: physical power, technical mastery, courage and honor. Every culture around the world has developed and practiced some form of grappling.

Folkstyle Wrestling is the form of Wrestling that is practiced mostly in American high schools and colleges. It is also known as collegiate wrestling. The object of folkstyle wrestling is to take down and pin your opponent. Failing this, you want to get as many points as possible. Folkstyle scoring focuses mainly on changes in control. Taking an opponent down to the mat, escaping from or reversing control, or turning an opponent’s back to the mat are all scoring situations.
