I'm not too familiar with freestyle, what exactly is par terre?

"Par terre" means, "on the earth".  It's mat wrestling.  It's not exactly like anything in folkstyle, because one person doesn't have to be in control for the wrestlers to be in par terre.  The action just has to be down on the mat.

That's the concept.  The criteria which determine when par terre begins are sketchy.
