???????? ???????? SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC In September, 2013, Antonio Graceffo began studying for a PhD at Shanghai University of Sport, where he is writing his dissertation (in Chinese) about comparative forms of Chinese wrestling. While studying at the university he trains and competes as a member of the Chinese traditional wrestling (shuaijiao) team. Most of the other team members come from sports schools where they learned freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling. The team focuses on traditional wrestling but also practices free style and Greco. Antonio periodically teaches his teammates some moves from MMA grappling. It’s interesting to compare the different styles of wrestling, and to see how they would translate into MMA competition. Many of the instincts of a freestyle or Greco wrestler would actually be a bad decision in an MMA fight. For example, on the back wrestlers roll to their stomach to keep from getting pinned. MMA fighters roll to their back, so they can keep fighting and avoid the choke.
