More old-school rough-and-tumble: mixed-styles wrestling in Canada, 1776-1914
An excellent two-part article by wrestling historian Glynn A. Leyshon, on the history of mixed-styles wrestling in Canada.
I liked those articles. I always knew Canada had a strong wrestling heritage. I heard somewhere that they used to have hardcore savate in the Yukon. They would just kick the hell outta each other.
I did a little bit of Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling at local fares when I was a kid, it's good fun.
