    Well, I can't seem to find a judo gym around me. I want some standup grappling so does greco have similar throws and takedowns as judo? If so which ones? Or is it mostly explosive suplex variations.

    The arm throws are quite similar. Everything else, not so much.

    Go buy the Randy Couture book.

    He covers both style of wrestling and their application in MMA.
