Wrestling is a grappling-style combat sport that includes clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins, and other grappling holds. The sport can be either really competitive or purely recreational (see professional wrestling). Folkstyle, freestyle, Greco-Roman, catch, submission, judo, sambo, and other styles of wrestling exist. A wrestling match is a physical contest between two (or more) opponents or sparring partners attempting to achieve and retain dominance. Both traditional historic and current styles have a wide range of styles with various regulations. Other martial arts, as well as military hand-to-hand fighting systems, have included wrestling principles.

Wrestling is one of the most ancient forms of fighting. Wrestling dates back 15,000 years, according to cave paintings. Wrestlers are seen in Babylonian and Egyptian reliefs employing the majority of the modern-day holds. It has been mentioned in literature since the Old Testament and the ancient Indian Vedas.
