awesome info Big... I too think we practice a little too hard sometimes. However, I think folkstyle is a bit of a different animal than fs/gr. I think you have to be in better shape. I'm hoping that I one day get the chance to coach a college squad, because I would really like to put the Russian wrestling examples to practice here in America. I think the kids would like it more, they would be more refreshed, and I think their technique would be better as well.
