One rarely sees Folkstyle Wrestling stand-ups used in Freestyle Wrestling as escapes, but how difficult are they to pull off in Freestyle Wrestling as opposed to Folkstyle Wrestling? Would the fact that your opponent could lock hands around your waist while you are in a par terre position make it more difficult to use the stand-up? Or does it really not make too much of a difference?
I have never been daring enough to defy convention and incorporate stand-ups into my Freestyle game because of the way that they give escapes points in freestyle and because I figure that so long as I survive for 15 seconds or so on the ground that we'll be stood up. But recently I've been thinking about whether or not the fact that a person's opponent can lock hands around one's waist would make it more difficult to use the stand-up.
If anyone can provide any insights, it'd be appreciated.
