Wrestling stands as both a martial art and a combat sport, involving close-quarters grappling with opponents to gain positional advantage through a variety of throws and techniques, all within a defined ruleset. Techniques in wrestling encompass a spectrum of grappling maneuvers, including clinch fighting, throws, takedowns, joint locks, pins, and other holds. Over time, numerous wrestling techniques have been integrated into various martial arts, combat sports, and military training systems. While wrestling serves as genuine competitive sport, professional wrestling diverges into athletic performance and theatrics.

The sport manifests in diverse competitive forms, such as freestyle, Greco-Roman, judo, sambo, folkstyle, catch, shoot, luta livre, submission, sumo, pehlwani, shuai jiao, and others. Its roots trace back to ancient times, with wrestling appearing as an event in the ancient Olympic Games during the 18th Olympiad in 708 BC. Wrestling encompasses a wide array of styles with distinct rules, spanning both traditional historic methods and modern adaptations. The term “wrestling” itself finds mention in late Old English as “wr√¶stlunge,” interpreted as “palestram” in gloss.
