    Traditional Swiss wrestling

    Now here is something many of you probably have never seen.(If I can find a way to post the video:-)).

    I didn't know if this is the right place for it. I'm just a noob.......

    I am originally from Switzerland and have always laughed my ass off at these guys. I espscially love the shorts....

    Schwingen?
    The possibilities are endless with a name like that, and of course those schwingen shorts.

    Yes....and how exactly does that boy who got picked on at school think this will help him to defend himself? "Hold on there mate, I just need to get a good grip on your shorts...... "

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Yes, any form of wrestling that attacks the hips is doomed to failure!

    Never been double legged have you?

    i like the cleaning your opponent off part. good sportsmanship.

    also, having to grab the shorts is interesting. grabbing the belt/pants is certainly an option in a lot of grappling styles, judo included, but to be obligated to do so is different.

    as for the self-defense applications of schwingen.. if someone's not wearing some kind of pants when they attack you, in that case you might as well get a good grip on the next available handle..



    yeee-owtch!

    I wonder if Schwingen is related to Icelandic Glima wrestling ...

    well, if they go to school naked then he can always grab their junk

    Belt/vest/shorts-wrestling is a very interesting tradition since whether its from Switzerland, Iceland, Georgia etc. the rules are very similar for holds and scoring.

    I wouldn't laugh, I've seen belt-wrestling in Russia and those m*f'ers are rugged! Watching a 300# dude body-lock throw another 300# dude is impressive.
