Trips When Animals Wrestle?
I was watching some videos of animals grappling with each other (while i should have been working...) Gorillas, Lions, Dogs etc. , and it looks like they usually just lock up and try to push the other one over.
Has anyone seen any video in which deliberate tripping is used?
And on a sort of related topic, does anyone have any Idea why some folk wrestling styles allow use of the legs to trip while others do not?
Or why some forms start with a fixed grip and others don't?
I've read that a lot of folk wrestling styles were bio-mimicked from animals (indigenous australian wrestling is supposed to be derived from the wrestling of kangaroos
As far as the fixed gripping is concerned,my guess is that it might have something to do with the chaos of fighting or battle, where your grip is likely going to be a neutral one any ways and you wont be changing your grip a lot.
This has interested me for a while now, so hopefully some other people are interested in finding out as well.
Why can you only use your feet in soccer and only your hands in basket ball?
You want to look at bear wrestling. They love to wrestle and they even wrestle with humans. They don't even need to be specifically trained for that. Some people even wrestled with wild bears but it is dangerous of course.
As for technique here you can see a bear performing a single-leg takedown in the beginning:
Of course bears are not as clever as humans so they don't really know that much technique and rely more on their strength advantage.
So go find your nearest bear and practice!
Is that bear wrestling, or bearzilian jiujitsu?
Bears, like all intelligent animals, love to play.
All intelligent people, of course, know the difference between play and attack.
Only good 2 minutes of "Legends of the Fall".
Bear eats Brad Pitt, after a decent brawl.
I bet Mike Tyson loves that scene.
That video is hilarious.

Bearzillian jiujitsu was heavily influenced by Bear as Bear Can wresting. BearJitsu guys stole the BABC submission known as the Double Bear Lock, and nemamed it the "Bearmura".

(And on the street, BABC is where it's at. Most people aren't wearing pelts, and in Bear jitsu class, the use of the pelt is all they learn.)
