What do you wrestlers and coaches think of martial arts

Postby billybob92 » Fri Jan 16, 2015 2:45 pm

I never wrestled in high school but later in college I really got into enjoying training and competing in Brazilian Jiujitsu and also fought some amateur MMA. In doing this I got to meet a lot of former wrestlers who wrestled at a high level in college. It always made me regret not wrestling because it acts as such a good base for BJJ and MMA. It also always made me wonder what my high school coach would think of BJJ. What do you wrestlers and coaches think of other grappling based martial arts? (eg Judo or Brazilian Jiujitsu). Do you feel that it compliments their wrestling well if they also train in one of these or does it get in the way? Do you consider wrestling a martial art?
