Do you know that Delhi is the Mud wrestling hub of India. It is a form of wrestling which is done on an earth pit, specially tanned , cultivated for the purpose , called Akhara. An Akhara is run by a Guru , who teaches for free, and his pupil compete with other guru’s pupils, in wrestling competition called Dangal. Like Hanuman Akhra where Olympic medalist wrestler sushil kumar practiced , Guru Jasram Akhada, Guru Capt. Chandrup akhara, Guru Chandagiram Akhara etc., you can watch this in my channel.
In Delhi There are many wrestling Akharas, ( Wrestling clans). It is the oldest martial art of India, and most of the martial arts are descended from it. This form of wrestling ( Mud Pit wrestling) is fading. I am a wrestler and want this form of wrestling to continue. for this I have made this channel, and one of my friend Greg is also working on it pls visit his blog
If you want to make an story , I would be freely available.
