Kurash

Information

Kurash is a form of upright jacket wrestling native to Uzbekistan, practised since ancient times. It's played by two athletes, one wearing a green jacket and the other a blue jacket. The objective is trying to throw one another to the ground. If thrown to the back, victory is declared. If thrown onto the side, points are awarded. Lower score is given if thrown to the belly or weakly onto the side. The one with the most points wins. Kurash was incorporated into the Asian Indoor Games in 2007.
