Wrestling is an ancient, individual combat sport that pits two wrestlers against one another in a match.

Utilizing a variety of takedowns, clinches, holds and other grappling techniques, wrestlers compete against each other by weight class to determine who is superior. Wrestling is definitely one of the most difficult and demanding sports.
