    I recently acquired a publication from the Cornish Wrestling Association detailing the throws and techniques of Cornish Wrestling. Whilst interesting (it is a fascinating read if a little amateurish in its approach) I couldn't help noticing that whilst some of the techniques are familiar then names are completely different from those used by Parkyns in his book "The Inn-Play or Cornish Hugg Wrestler"

    Has anyone else noticed this? Are there any intermediate publications that may show the transition?

    I'm not aware of any transitional works, though I assume there must be some somewhere. However, you've piqued my curiosity.

    Peace favor your sword,
