They are wearing leather pants. They also rub themselves down with olive oil and water I think. Turkish wrestling is also called grease wrestling??? I have heard of it before, but I am not sure on how to win really? I think you win by crushing your opponent or lifting him off the ground and carrying him??? If anyone can confirm that lemme know.[/quote]
what you said is true
The ?crush.? A fighter may maneuver his opponent onto his stomach and then trap him by sprawling on top. If he can keep him down with his face buried in the grass he can then turn his exhausted opponent with a half-nelson for a pin. This is a dangerous move, and the referee monitors closely to see that the bottom man is not suffocated. If the ?crusher? is not successful after a given period the referee has them begin again from a standing position.
Submission. Occasionally the match under a hot summer sun is so long and arduous that one fighter will simply signal his submission to the referee. Pin.
Since a wrestler is not restricted from placing his hands inside his opponent?s kispet (he may not grab his balls or invade his rectum, however), he can also use the waistband to hold the other man in place. Occasionally the kispet is yanked so far below his hips that the fighter being held cannot rise without exposing himself. Having lost his trunks he also loses the match.
If a fighter is able to lift his opponent entirely off the ground and carry him five paces in any direction, that is a ?carrying? pin.
A running ?flip? is sometimes employed, in which the wrestler causes both his opponent and himself to expose their navels during the roll. The loser is the one whose navel is first to be exposed. Unless the initiator of this move is careful, he may find himself the loser even though he was the ?flipper.?
