In freestyle wrestling, participants can use their legs as both offensive and defensive weapons, which is not permitted in Greco-Roman wrestling. In addition, freestyle wrestlers can attempt to take an opponent to the mat with a single- or double-leg takedown, but Greco-Roman wrestlers cannot grab their opponents below the waist at all.

Wrestlers in the two sports thus use significantly different techniques and strategies when grappling. Greco-Roman wrestlers also cannot use their legs to make contact with their opponents, making it more difficult to secure a takedown.

Greco-Roman wrestling empasizes throws and holds that pins your opponent's shoulders to the mat. It is forbidden to grab your opponent's legs, or to trip him, or to use your own legs to apply holds.

Freestyle wrestling is similar to Greco-Roman except that the legs are not restricted. Greco-Roman and Freestyle are amateur forms of wrestling and are Olympic competitions.
