I wonder why Asian wrestling is differerent. If you watch old Judo clips they're circling each other each trying to take their balance. It's the same with the Bada clip but they weren't trained to do that how weird.
different culture -> different rules.

Additionally, there's plenty of circling in folk/free wrestling.
You hold the belt with one hand, and a rope around the thigh with the other in this form of ssireum.
