[advancedtabs design_tabsposition=top design_skin=skin-clean design_transition=default] [dzstab] [dzstabmenu]PHILOSOPHY[/dzstabmenu] [dzstabcontent]

The combat helps the practitioners gain physical strength and upgrades their athletic skills. It has been used to prove ones superiority over others. The sport also works for developing the mental self as wrestlers become mentally strong and calculative as they look for opportunities to ground their opponents. An ideal wrestler also exhibits ethics and is a person with honour. Apart from physical, mental, and spiritual development, Wrestling was also used to promote friendship. And it is said that this is the reason behind its first introduction by the Greeks – it was seen as an alternate to bloodshed in conflicts among warring nations and kingdoms.

Rules / Rulesets

[advancedtabs design_tabsposition=top design_skin=skin-clean design_transition=default] [dzstab] [dzstabmenu]RULES / RULESETS[/dzstabmenu] [dzstabcontent]

The rules of Greco-Roman style touch-fall wrestling are prescribed by FILA. The objective of the wrestlers is to put the opponent on the mat with their shoulder blades touching the ground simultaneously. Even if momentarily, both of the opponent’s shoulder blades touch the mat, the rollover of the shoulders does not qualify as a fall.

To begin the bout, wrestlers start in a standing position over a mat and then go for the holds. There is a referee who conducts the affair and uses hand signals to award the points for the manoeuvres which lead to the touch-fall. If by the end of the match no falls occur, the points are added to declare the winner.

Popular Culture

[advancedtabs design_tabsposition=top design_skin=skin-clean design_transition=default] [dzstab] [dzstabmenu]POPULAR CULTURE[/dzstabmenu] [dzstabcontent]

The International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA) acknowledges 4 current International Wrestling disciplines, which include freestyle wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling, beach wrestling, and amateur pankration.

The freestyle wrestling has found its way to the Olympics arena where men and women compete to test their skills. The style is all about throws and pins over the mat and it allows the use of kicks for offence and defence.

Greco-Roman is another popular style of wrestling, and is an Olympic Games event as well. This style prohibits kicks and holding of opponents below the belt. It gives weight to high amplitude throws and pins on the mat are one of the ways to win.
