    Oh wow, that doesn't sound like a good thing. It is a bad thing that the rules keep changing right?


    Well from watching some matches this is what I've figured out to be the difference.


    • You can lock hands on top position.
    • You get 2 points for every back exposure on the mat you make on your opponent.
    • You get 1 point by pushing them out of the "circle" (for lack of better words).

    Is that all?

    Well the thing is, I already did look at a lot of freestyle matches. And I have an idea. Telling me to watch isn't very helpful and repeating yourself again felt a bit rude bit that is ok. I know you are just trying to help. Anyhow, just watching isn't enough and I'm a bit curious so I asked the fellow wrestlers on this forum. This is what I've noticed to be the difference:

    • You can lock hands on top position.
    • You get 2 points for every back exposure on the mat you make on your opponent.
    • You get 1 point by pushing them out of the "circle" (for lack of better words).

    Freestyle scoring:
    1 pt for
    -takedown
    -reversal
    -you opponent stepping out of the circle
    -holding your opponent on their back for 5 seconds

    2 pts for-
    exposing your opponent's back to the mat

    3 pts for-
    taking your opponent from their feet to their back

    5 pts for-
    a throw of "grand amplitude" like a suplex

    Freestyle matches: 3 rounds, 2 minutes each. At each round the score re-starts 0-0. Win 2 rounds (or pin your opponent) to win.

    If the round is tied, it goes to a tiebreaker... the last (and most common) tie breaker is "last point wins". A 0-0 tie goes to the clinch, where one wrestler starts in a single-leg position and has 30 seconds to score.

    Wrestlers breaking the rules are assessed "cautions", which also gives points to the opponent. 3 cautions = a loss. Oh, and stalling isn't called in freestyle.

    Sounds overly complicated? It is.

    Wow thanks a lot. That was detailed and simple enough, don't need Wikipedia.
