I don't know if you have been paying attention, but the styles of wrestling is based on the rules. However, in the end wrestling is wrestling. You seem like a young kid. Just find a wrestling club or wrestle for your school. A club may offer all three but a school will probably only off folkstyle. There isn't really any learning all three other than understanding the rules and applying them in practice.

A good folkstyle coach will have you learning not only leg attacks but upper body attacks as well (though not always). If you're learning both, what you're learning will apply to folkstyle, freestyle and Greco-Roman from a technical perspective. Only the rules change.

I former student of mine grew up with folkstyle wrestling. However he wrestled everywhere he got the chance and that often including Greco-Roman meets. Again, it's merely the rules that change. Lastly, how much upper body stuff you do will often depend on the program and what the coach there was good at.

You will want to learn the Greco-Roman approach because it lends itself well to fighting and self-defense.

Danny, do you have an attention span problem?

Basically, there is NO STYLE of wrestling. It's just wrestling. It's the rules that make them differently.

Freestyle, Folk and Greco-Roman wrestling is basically the same thing except with different rules.

I can't make it any simpler anymore.

No.

Only the limitations. For example, both Greco-Roman and Freestyle have hip-throws, Greco-Roman does not have leg tackle because in it's rule, you're not allowed to go for the lower body.

In practice however, you'll be learning wrestling. That's everything from Greco-Roman, Freestyle, Folk, etc.

The only difference you'll see between them is the limitation put on by rules.

Danny, you're not pissing me off, so don't feel afraid to ask. I'm just grumpy, so don't take it personally.

I do however, request that you read and reflect on the things people write. It makes it a bit easier.

And Danny, I'm a mod. My job is to help you. So don't worry dude.

Who knows, the little noob may one day be the next legend.
