History of Wrestling

This is one of the oldest types of fighting, cave paintings in France dating back more than 15,000 years depict Wrestling matches, as do Hieroglyphs from Egypt and reliefs from Babylon.

In Ancient Greece, Wrestling was an important part of the culture and was prominently featured in legends and literature.

Wrestling was also the centre sport during the first Olympic Games. The international governing body for wrestling, the FILA, was founded in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1912.

Nowadays, Wrestling is a term that comprises many different types of the sport, from Greco-Roman Wrestling and Amateur Pankration to Oil Wrestling and Freestyle Wrestling.

While the specific rules may vary between those various types, the goal is always the same: to obtain a superior position.

Wrestling has also influenced many other combat sports and Martial Arts, such as Judo.

Common Injuries

As a combat sport, the physical contact that characterises Wrestling makes it easy to get injured.

Wrestling is a rather aggressive, although fair, and very physical full contact sport, which is why it is essential that you purchase the right Travel Insurance to adequately cover you when you are away.

The knees, shoulders, upper body, ankles and head are the most common areas that get injured when wrestling.

Particularly the joints are susceptible to injuries, joint locks are a popular way to keep ones opponent locked into a certain position.

If you are injured whilst Wrestling, the way in which the injury is managed is important, to ensure a quick and full recovery.

Because this is a full contact combat sport, there is no successful way to avoid injuries besides training well and regularly and making sure that you are in good physical shape.

Wrestling Equipment

This is arguably the cheapest sport in the world. No equipment is needed whatsoever, Wrestling is done bare handed.

People who participate in matches, however, might wear special Wrestling shoes that offer more traction on the ground. Clothing consists of nothing more than a sleeveless shirt and tight shorts.

Important Information

You are required at all times to wear the appropriate safety equipment, for example protective clothing and / or suitable head protection.
