alright ill start it off
folk wrestling: good all around takedowns good ground control
freestyle: good takedowns and slams
greco roman: good takedowns and slams from the clinch
Thats basically it...
But Freestyle wrestling isn't really about control. The bottom opponents main job is to stall. Control isn't really improtant. In the olympic version theres a 15 second rule. Since it's not about control after 15 seconds of no scoring they stand you up. Mark Coleman specializes in this.
Grecco is about controlling form the clinch. Clinch takedowns and slams. Randy Couture, Dan Henderson, and Matt Lindland are the main practicionars of this. It's really great for MMA especially in the cage like for Randy, you pin them up against the cage to clinch and take or slam them down for Some GNP and control..
Sumo I believe is about balance and control?
Folk wrestling is more like the amaetur colligate style. The art of taking your opponent down and controlling him...
