    Wrestlings fun but....

    They sure limit you alot, leg locks to SOME armbars, to tons of stuff.
    I was got a few pins today from stuff like that, but the "veterans" bitched me out.
    "This is real wrestling, not fake **** like UFC, and blah blah blah.."
    I never said UFC anywhere...
    I'm sticking in it cause its great butwhat sure sucks, is when a shitload of moves I'm used to getting subs with are banned now.
    so yeah, I could go on the net and dig through rulebooks and crap on whats illegal, but anybody just wanna give me a link please?

    Wrestling focusses a lot on positioning, and that helps a lot. If you mix that in with subs etc, you can be really good.

    You could always try submission wrestling later.

    The main illegal thing is that you cannot choke your opponent with an arm going across the front of their neck. Full nelson is illegal. Slams are illegal. No locked hands when you are on the ground, and you are not going for the pin. Try not to hit the other person. Basically, try not to intentionally maim someone.

    I may be missing a few.

    Pure wrestling is different than stuff with subs. Good nonetheless and I wish I took it to help with my no gi take downs.

    I was actually going to make a thread about going from submissions to only wrestling.
    But since I never actually was able to start wrestling at my university I didn't make the thread.

    Also funny was some of the wrestlers did some BJJ as well, so I did some sub grappling with them with most of the rest of the wrestlers just STARING at us. No to mention the comments about 'that isn't real wrestling' and 'dude stop fooling around and do wrestling'

    Um....I'd say, try to change your mindset and just learn that positional stuff and takedowns.

    Don't try any submissions in normal wrestling, you will only make people think you're an asshole. If you want to do submissions, that's what submission wrestling is for, not regular wrestling.

    Funny thing is though, the girls were commenting on how good of moves I was doing. (It was the guys bitching about it)
    after I pinned this one chick she said "Thats a good move"
    a couple mintues later I ask my coach if its legal.
    I'ts not damnit.

    Wrestling vs. grappling teaches us that women are more accepting of various "techniques" while sweaty mens pin them than men are.

    I was really annoying to everyone when I did Judo because I wouldn't even try to grip their gi or footsweep, I would just shoot and most of the time I would get the takedown because most of them had no sprawl. However, what I ended up doing was learning less than I should have about footsweeps and throws. If you're going to wrestle, just use their techniques so you're good at those techniques...otherwise you'll learn nothing new, you'll just be applying what you already know.

    If you're not jumping off of a turnbuckle onto your opponent who is waiting below you on a barbwire wrapped flaming table, then it's really not wrestling.

    Excellent point.

    I had a similar experience in MT. Ended up just putting the gong fu stuff off to the side so I could focus on really understanding MT as well as possible in the limited time I had.
