    Mongolian wrestling, known as Bökh is the folk wrestling style of Mongols. Bökh means "durability". It was a military sport intended to provide mainly strength, stamina and skills training to troops. Bokh 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 court of Qing Empire (1646–1911) held regular wrestling events, mainly between ethnic Manchu and Mongol wrestlers. Russian Sambo also has its roots in Mongolian Wrestling. There are several different versions, Mongolian (in the country of Mongolia and in Tuva of Russia), Buryatian (in the Buryatia of Russia) and Southern Mongolian (in northern China).

    Since there are no weight classes in the Naadam of Mongolia, a small wrestler can compete against an opponent over twice his size. Smallest wrestlers usually weigh around 70 kg, while the biggest are over 200 kg, the median weight of a competitor at the Naadam is around 115 kg.

    Rank can only be attained during the Naadam festival. The number of rounds won by each wrestler determines rank. The lowest rank is the Falcon of Sum, given to the top four wrestlers at the soum level Naadam in any 329 sums of Mongolia. Highest rank is "Giant." The rank is held for life.

    Level, Title, Provision

    1, Undefeatable Giant of Nation, Win 5 times in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    2, Wide Giant of Nation, Win 4 times in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    3, Ocean Giant of Nation, Win 3 times in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    4, Giant of Nation, Win 2 times in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    5, Lion of Nation, Win in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    6, Garuda of Nation, Runner-Up in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    7, Nation Elephant of Nation, Semi-final in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    8, Hawk of Nation, Quarter final in Nation Naadam Wrestling
    9, Falcon of Nation, 1/8 final in Nation Naadam Wrestling

    After the Manchu-Mongols established Qing Empire and conquered China in 1644, Mongolian wrestling became the national sport of the country. Manchu wrestling buku was originally from the Mongolian word “bökh”.

    In the Yuan Empire, the Jurchens who lived in Manchuria adopted Mongolian culture including wrestling, bökh. In the early Qing period, rulers encouraged the populace, including aristocrats, to practise buku as a feature of military training. The Qing court established the "Shan Pu Battalion" and chose 200 fine wrestlers divided into three levels. Manchu wrestling moves can be found in today's Chinese wrestling, Shuai jiao, which is its most important part. Among many branches, Beijing wrestling adopted most Manchu wrestling moves.

    Mongolian wrestlers are using their warrior spirit and fighting skills to conquer the national sport of Japan - sumo wrestling. Starting in 1991, Mongolians began to become especially dominant in sumo, as of 2005, Mongolians composed roughly 5% of all ranked sumo wrestlers, making them more than 60% (37 out of 61) of non-Japanese rikishi in Japan. In a 2009 survey conducted by a Japanese statistical agency, of the four sumo wrestlers named as most famous by Japanese people, three were Mongolian.

    Thanks for sharing those pictures and clips. When my teacher was young, he went to Mongolia and challenged those Mongolia wrestlers. He told me that the way they looked at him could kill him.

    Can you share what those 30 new techniques may be?

    The Chinese wrestling has over 60 different categories of throws. Some throw such as "foot sweep" and "leg block" both contain more than 30 different techniques. Even the wrestling "single leg", there are over 20 different ways to apply it.

    Interesting videos. It would be good to hear on the rules further.
    The general clinch grip looks like one on the arm area and one on the waist: do you have to start like this?
    The rules for throws look similar to greco from what I can tell.

    The arm grip is a must. You can use it to disable one of your opponent's arms mobility. Whether your other hand want to grab on your opponent't waist, or his upper body will depend on your personal skill set.

    The rules is simple.

    The goal of a match is to get your opponent to touch his upper body, knee or elbow to the ground. In the Inner Mongolian version, any body part other than the feet touching the ground signals defeat. There are no weight classes, age limits, or time limits in a match. It's very common that a match may last for over 2 hours. The Inner Mongolians may not touch their opponent's legs with their hands, whereas, in Mongolia, grabbing your opponent's legs is legal. In addition, striking, strangling or locking is illegal in both varieties. There is no ground game after throw.

    If you use

    - BJJ "pull guard", since your back will touch the ground first, or
    - western wrestling "single leg" and "double legs" and allow one of your knee to touch the ground,

    you will just give your opponent a free round.
