Campaign to promote Wrestling as a Martial Art
I was just mulling over how people can do their part to promote wrestling in the wake of its exclusion from 2020 games. It dawned on me that most people probably consider wrestling just another arbitrary sport rather than a bona-fide fighting style. MMA has greatly increased the awareness of the combat applicability of wrestling (And is almost certainly responsible to some degree for the recent increase in scholastic wrestling participation) but I still don't believe most people realize wrestling is a fighting style in and of itself. Tank Abbott said it himself: "Wrestling is a prerequisite to fighting."
Perhaps we can do our part in the fight against Wushu by starting up a Facebook campaign to promote wrestling as a martial art. We have some strong arguments on our side:
