Info about "Mongolian wrestling video"
Mongolian wrestling, known as Bökh (Mongolian: бөх “strength, solidarity, durability”) or Khapsagay, is the folk wrestling style of Mongolia.
Wrestling is the most important of the Mongolian culture’s historic “Three Manly Skills”, that also include horsemanship and archery. Genghis Khan considered wrestling to be an important way to keep his army in good physical shape and combat ready. The Manchu dynasty (1646–1911) Imperial court held regular wrestling events, mainly between Manchu and Mongol wrestlers. There are several different versions, Mongolian (in the country of Mongolia and in Tuva of Russia), Buryatian (in the Buryatia of Russia) and Inner Mongolian (in northern China).
