    France has always emphasized GR over FS, not surprising considering the origins of GR. They've produced some really good wrestlers over the years, like Ghani Yalouz who was a multiple world finalist and medalist. Used to watch the French GR team at the Concord (CA) Greco tournament when the Russians, Germans and some of the former Eastern Block countries participated.

    A question for everyone here. One of the MMA arts France is very good at is European style kickboxing, as well as Judo and Greco. My BJJ is just dandy here in Brazil but I am looking actively for places to train in Greco Roman and where in France would anyone say that the best training centers are????????

    If (besides NY) their were a place I could train in all of my related arts and mostly Wrestling, Id be a happy camper

    The best training center in France is the Olympic center (INSEP) in Paris, the best greco and freestyle wrestlers train hard here
