INDIAN WRESTLING


Alaskan Bald Eagles Flying

Most know only the hand-arm wresting match that is usually done with the elbows on a table, and each player faces each other, and they grip each other at the hands. Some will try different hand grips (handshake like), each round.

There is another popular version, that opponents face each other in a grip at the hands, and try to throw, or move the other; while standing without moving the feet in a fixed stance. Hand grips can be changed each round, and the double wrist lock grip can be used that goes to each other's forearm.

The basic laying position is done on the back, prone, facing opposite directions. The players grip each other at the hand, and then raise the closest leg, to each other off the ground, in a rocking motion. On the third count, they lock legs, and try to throw, or move the other; while standing without moving the feet in a fixed stance. Hand grips can be changed each round, and the double wrist lock grip can be used. The area of contact, with each other usually starts on the inside of the knee. Other rounds can adjust the contact area, with the furthest toward the ankle; being the most powerful.

Attack Points

The most commonly known one is used by Marines, and is near the upper-arm shoulder area; and is used as a painful, paralyzing point, in a come-along controlling move.

There are others, that are used and are magnified by applying them far from the heart, and then progressively closer.

These points fall in the hollows of the sinews. They are not Acupuncture points.

Strengthening Points

The strengthening points are the same, but are applied in reverse, from close to the heart, toward the extremities.

They strengthen internally as well as externally.

Indian Wrestling Internal work, should not be done on the same day as Traditional Chinese Internal Martial Arts training (Qigong -Ch Kung), or acupuncture treatments.

The more painful they are, the more they need work. This practice makes one immune from the same tactics.

Learning From Animals

Do not think like an animal;
Think like an animal thinks.

Spatial thinking incorporates views from many angles and is not limited by right/wrong dualistic and mutually thinking. Dualistic thinking tends to see one side as completely wrong or right; without being able to take advantage of the strengths and weaknesses of each view. At times: these discrepancies in dualistic seeing point to something much larger at work.

We can learn more by studying what we have in common with animals, than how we are different.

Humans learned to hunt in packs, from wolves, and is detailed in the book; Animals in Translation, by Dr. Temple Grandin.
