If you mention Greco Roman to a room full of BJJ players, you will unfortunately lose half of them in blank stares. While grappling enthusiasts will immediately think of the International wrestling style that does not allow attacks below the waist. The other half of the room will either have no idea what your talking about or think of this guy upon the mention of Greco. Now he may have been a bad ass in the 80's and 90's, and maybe he was as dreamy as JCVD or Segal at one point, but he definitely could not hold up against some of today's true Greco Gods.
So as usual, we try to make the connection of other worldly grappling styles into our sub-grappling/BJJ games. We all know for the most part BJJ standup is pretty weak, but what unites all of these grappling styles is the use of a clinch. Check out this very detailed video of the Greco Pass Bye that can be used from your standard tie-up and applied to your grappling style of choice.
