Greco is limited because its all upperbody, better to go with the Luta Livre.

Yes, it is limited, but in the same school they teach freestyle, which is not...
If there where a pure Luta Livre School I would be there, like a shot...however, only MMA with LL can be found... :-(Canuckyokushin:
These women can do back flips right over my head and still land on there feet .GRrrrrrrr!
THAT'S NOTHING, I USED TO KNOW SOME 12 YEAR-OLDS WHO COULD FIT INSIDE A SUITCASE AND STAY ALIVE FOR 7 OR WAS IT 6 HOURS

Its basically no gi Jiu-Jitsu from brazil. Not everyone could afford to go and train in Jiu-Jitsu, so some people would get together and do BJJ without the gi and it was cheaper. Its really all the same stuff... submission grappling.

wow this is incredibly easy one- GRECO-ROMAN.
you won't find better grappling anywhere. the luta livre class is most likely not taught by an ex-wrestlers, so chances are they will suck with takedowns. greco-roman is great for MMA also, as it eliminates the takedowns which can be countered easiest, (see shots to the legs). you specifically said you wanted to grapple and not pull-guard... which makes greco-roman perfect, next time you are training bjj, you can easily toss them and gain great position in side countrol or even mount.
