I think so watching this video of cornish wrestling!
Either one is fine. Like anything it depends on how well you apply the art.
I'll say the answer is both.
Most standup game can be as simple as to use
- "hand skill" to clinch, and
- "leg skill" to take down.
The wrestling/Shuai-Chiao has good "hand skill" such as:
- head lock,
- arm wrap,
- under hook,
- over hook,
- bear hug,
- single leg,
- double legs,
The Judo/Shuai-Chiao has good "leg skill" such as:
The following clip uses:
- "rhino (big fist)" to enter (available in striking art),
- "head lock" to clinch (available in wrestling),
- "slant cut" to take down (available in judo),
- "side mount" to continue on the ground (available in BJJ, not showing in this clip).
It's a perfect example of "cross training".
