I was reading through one of the interminable threads on flowrestling that compare folkstyle and freestyle, and it struck me that "control" in wrestling is sort of arbitrary. Holding onto someone's ankles in a seated position, or the tripod position (bottom guy on his hands and feet) is not a scoring control position in freestyle, but it is folkstyle. On the other hand, holding someone on their back may not be considered "control" in a folkstyle match as lons as they are still grabbing onto your limbs. Even a pin is kind of an arbitrary measure of control; MMA has taught us that you can fight a lot more effectively from your back than from your stomach.
Thoughts? For my money there is no more "controlling" manoever than the lifts and throws found in greco.
