    S'Istrumpa: Sardinian wrestling

    S'Istrumpa is the traditional folk wrestling style of Sardinia. A typical European "back-hold" wrestling style, it's fought with each wrestler's hands locked behind their opponent's back, from standing to the best two out of three clean falls. See http://www.istrumpa.it/ (in Italian) and these clips for a taste of the action:

    I've said this before on Bullshido, the backhold is a sweet position. It's rapidly becoming one of my favorite throwing positions from the clinch.
