West Ottawa Returns to Olympic Wrestling
Myrmidon Partners with wohs to reintroduce the sports
With the Olympic year this year, West Ottawa wrestling is going back to its roots and offering a camp designed to instruct in Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. Folkstyle (high School) wrestling puts more emphasis on controlling your opponent, while freestyle puts more emphasis on exposure points. The goal from the bottom position in Folkstyle wrestling is to get away. The goal from the bottom position in freestyle is to avoid being turned/exposed. In freestyle, the goal is to pin or expose your opponent’s shoulders to the mat. Learning each discipline provides crossover opportunities that can help a wrestler become as complete as possible. Greco is very similar but forbids the use of legs to score or prevent a scoring technique.
