A type of martial arts with traditions that constitutes the national culture of the Tatar and many Turkic peoples. The competition represents wrestling with belts, in which the wrestler’s goal is to put the opponent on his back using any of the permitted techniques.

In Koresh wrestling, a technique is understood as a purposeful attacking action by a wrestler, during which the opponent breaks away from the mat, and then, as a result of this action, finds himself in a certain position on the mat. For example, throws with a deflection through the chest in various variations (including stepping behind the opponent’s left or right leg), throws with a throw behind the back, etc. Techniques performed without lifting the opponent off the mat (for example, knocking down, knocking down) are not scored.

n Koresh wrestling, trips, sweeps, and leg hooks are completely prohibited, but throws with the legs are allowed.
