Introduction to Wrestling

A sport as old as mankind itself. Since the dawn of time men have been pitted against each other in physical hand to hand combat, making this almost certainly the most ancient of Olympic sports. It’s a simple concept. Two men or women fight until one of them is subdued. But the techniques of wresting have become sophisticated and winning is about having the ability to use not only your weight and skill but also the weight of your opponent.
Wrestling is split into Greco-Roman and Freestyle disciplines. In Freestyle wrestling the competitors have a much greater freedom. They can use not only their arms and bodies, but also their legs and can take a hold of their opponent anywhere that allows them to overpower and gain total control of them.
