The female has started to challenge the male supremacy in traditional wrestling. The arenas which previously was forbidden for women to even enter (in some countries & culture women were even forbidden to watch sporting spectacles) are now battlegrounds to prove which sex is supreme.

Two news reports from rural traditional wrestling competition

Here, there were some the female wrestlers were taunted by the male wrestlers so the female challenged any male to face her in the arena. The opposing male had won a match and had challenged any one to wrestle him (Generally in this tourneys you get money for winning matches and wrestlers challenge to earn more till being defeated). The organisers matched these two as they were of similiar weight and the result is for all of you to enjoy



This is a news carried on a local channel which reports a Dangal (traditional village wrestling competition) where mixed wrestling is being organised for the last 4 years. This I think is a report from 2010 and 14 girls had participated that year. Here the males and females are divided between weight class and are allowed to fight. according to the report the men have won more matches till date but women do win some and more and more women are participating. This is very progressive as the place where this competition is being held is supposed to be rural and orthodox but the organizers say that they have had no problems or objection to this.

It was considered impure in Japan for women to enter Sumo ring. The situation has changed a lot since

I just saw a news reports and photos of a intergender match between a commonwealth medalist female and a male wrestler, I have included the photos and translated the news report to the best of my abilities.

This is from a traditional contest where all the wrestlers were male. The only female to participate did not have a another competitor from her gender to compete against. So she extended an open challenge to any male wrestler to face her (matches generally happen by challenge in this type of competition). No body accepted the challenge cause loosing to a woman would have been a great dishonour. So in the evening she repeated her challenge with special emphasis on prickling the male ego. So the guy on the photo accepted and was pinned within four minutes (point system is generally not in place here you either pin and win or it is declared a draw).


PS: The winner is a commonwealth medalist at 63 kgs and it is a bout between two accomplished wrestlers man and woman and not between young trainees as is the case in many mixed bouts
