American Folkstyle

15 May 2011 One Comment

The blog is young, but I already feel guilty about not posting anything regarding the traditional style of wrestling I learned in growing up in Virginia. As most readers understand the fight to keep America’s traditional wrestling relevant has been expensive and labor intensive, but with resources and hard work the wrestling community is making gains every year. Let’s hope this project helps in that process.

    Great post, I LOVE Folkstyle wrestling for a number of reasons including that it is a great combat base as we have seen in MMA. Also if we dig further back in US folkstyle history you will see it was deeply rooted in Catch Wrestling, Thank goodness the Japanese liked it and kept it around!!
