There are many other throws some of which you have never even seen before in the States

Its really a pity our American wrestlers lack coaching that can open their eyes to these great throws.  But takedowns of various kinds are of course very important, more than throws to win.  However, you need throws for example if you are down by 2 points and throw for three points late in the match is one example..

Whatever.  There are tons of people on this and other boards (and even more who don't post) who know just as much, if not exceedingly more, about international wrestling, technique and international wrestlers than you do. One second, you're saying it's all from your friend, then the next, you're claiming you've seen great throws never seen before.

I think all those grease truck sandwiches saturated your brain with even more nonsense.

As a self proclaimed master of throws, you live by the throw, you die by the throw.
