Stepping on your opponents foot.

I know this is illegal in FS, but can you do it in Folk?

Legal in folk-style but I don't recall it being illegal in free-style.

It is illegal in freestyle and Greco.  I'd be hard-pressed to recall a time when I saw it called, but it's in the rules.  Much like the prohibition against grasping the toe or the sole of the foot.

Disregard due to Matref0's lack of attention to detail. :'(

Ray,  I'm not finding the stepping on the foot in FS part: http://www.fila-wrestling.com/images/documents/regles/2009_wrestling_rules.pdf

Article 50 – General Prohibitions
Wrestlers are fobidden to:

- Pull the hair, ears, genitals, pinch the skin, bite, twist fingers or toes, etc. and generally, to perform actions, gestures or holds with the intention of torturing the opponent or making him suffer to force him to withdraw.

- Kick, head-butt, strangle, push, apply holds that may endanger the opponent’s life or cause a fracture or dislocation of limbs, tread on the feet of the opponent or touch his face between the eyebrows and the line of the mouth.

- Thrust the elbow or knee into the opponent's abdomen or stomach, carry out any twisting action which is likely to cause suffering, or hold the opponent by his singlet.

- Cling to or grasp the mat.

- Talk during the bout.

- Seize the sole of the opponent’s foot (only seizing the upper part of the foot or the heel is permitted).

- Agree the match result between themselves.

Article 53 – Illegal Holds
The following holds and actions are illegal and strictly prohibited:

- Throat hold

- Twisting of arms more than 90 degrees

- Double Nelson, if not executed from the side without the use of the legs on any part of the opponent’s body

- Bringing the opponent’s arm behind his back and at the same time applying pressure to it in a position where the forearm forms an acute angle

- Executing a hold by stretching the opponent’s spinal column

- Chancery hold with one or two hands in any direction whatsoever

- The only holds allowed are with the head and one arm

- In standing, holds executed from behind when the opponent is head down (reverse waist hold), the fall must be executed only to the side and never from top to bottom (header)

- Lifting the opponent who is in a bridge position and then to throw him onto the mat (severe impact on the ground); that is, the bridge must be forced down

- Breaking the bridge by pushing in the direction of the head

- Generally, if the attacking wrestler is found to have violated the Rules during the execution of a hold, the action in question shall be completely void and on the first offence, the referee shall give an “attention” to the attacking wrestler at fault. If the attacker repeats his violation, he will be punished by a caution and one point will be awarded to his opponent.

- If a defending wrestler, by an illegal action, prevents his opponent from developing his hold, the defending wrestler will be cautioned. His opponent will receive two points.

Prohibited holds for female wrestling All double Nelsons holds in the "par terre" or standing position are forbidden in female wrestling.

It's right there in article 50. In the second paragraph. "tread on the feet of the opponent."

I've had coaches and fans call me blind, I guess they were correct.
