That includes Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, SAMBO, Greco-Roman, Freestyle, American Folkstyle, Khurash, Shai Jiao, Sumo, Kampfringen, Japanese Jujitsu, catch-as-catch-can, etc.
Judo is wrestling. Specifically, Judo is a Japanese form of jacket wrestling using throws, takedowns, pins, chokes, and armlocks for both sport and self defense situations.
The reason FILA doesn't promote Judo, is, I believe, because another organization already does that, and is in charge of it. For anyone interested, there are also seperate movements promoting amateur sumo and khurash for the Olympics.
P.S. I think FILA added beach wrestling to help promote and revive the grappling arts in the West, but I cannot determine how this 'sport' started. It's interesting though, I've previously thought about joining one of these tournaments, but there aren't any in Michigan.
