Wrestling – An Ancient Form of Combat

In the ancient days of times past men fought against each other in mortal combat in order to defeat their adversaries. They used weapons of war, technology, and some even used mystical means to lay low their opponents. The most brutal of warriors used up close combat techniques to slay all those who stood in their way.

The greatest of these warriors used wrestling in the process of becoming mighty conquerors. Okay, that intro was a bit dramatic but let’s face it wrestling is an old fighting form that has been around since men realized the necessity of warfare. Many consider wrestling to be an ancient martial arts form, but wrestling is a basic fighting technique that most people use even with out the training.

Martial art practices such as judo and jujitsu can elevate wrestling into a martial arts form but wrestling has also been developed by Greeks and Romans as well. Sumo wrestling is another version of this form that is very popular in Japan and it’s considered a professional sport in this country.

The World Wrestling Entertainment is a professional sport wrestling organization. They are a very commercial form of wrestling but they just don’t let anybody jump into the ring and fight. You really have to be at the top of your game to be involved in this type of profession. Luchadores are primarily Central American professional wrestlers and they have their own unique brand of wrestling that has gained some prominence in the world. Wrestling is a universal fighting form that many people all throughout the world use in one way or another.

The requirements for being a wrestler whether you’re a pro or an amateur is having a love for the sport and physical ability. Also, in the upper levels of wrestling one thing that starts to become clear is that you must have other non physical skills like an education, the ability to communicate well, and you must have some business sense.

Start training in high school with the wrestling team and wrestle in college. There are amateur matches that you can go wrestle at and people who are involved in the realm of wrestling should be able to point you out to how to find them. Most professional wrestlers have to go to a wrestling camp and learn the insides of the profession.

Wrestling gear for team orientated wrestling include singlets, head gear, knee pads, and elbow pads. These are some of the items that many amateur wrestlers will use in matches. In some instances professionals will use some of these items but in many cases they don’t. Wrestling is a huge sport and it’s also a huge business that will be with us for as long as there are men upon the Earth who want to destroy their opponents in close quarter combat.
