Wrestling is widely recognised as one of the oldest combat sports ever recorded.
From the ancient Egyptians and the Greek Pankration Fighters to today’s Olympians, the sport in its many varieties has survived, adapted and thrived in every country, from small festivals up to Olympic competition.
Rules vary from the Folk styles like Cumberland, Catch, Collar and Elbow, Lucha Libre and so many others, through to the more recognisable styles like Sambo, Greco Roman and Freestyle
All styles of Wrestling involve grappling and clinching for the use of takedowns, trips and throws to try and pin an opponent or submit them with the use of joint locks, chokes and limb manipulation.
The massive explosion of Mixed martial Arts has seen an interest in Wrestling grow even more.
Fighters quickly realised that without any Wrestling technique they would soon lose to superior grapplers.
Nowadays, every Mixed Martial Artist needs to have Wrestling as part of their training regime.
