Your work is greatly appreciated. Here’s the recommendation: Ruslan C. Pashayev has become the premier historian on the origins of catch-as-catch-can wrestling, tracing it beyond its cradle in the Lancashire district of England to its birth in folk-style wrestling and fighting arts across continental Europe. We know more about catch wrestling’s beginnings than we ever did before thanks to Ruslan. I highly recommend his excellent articles on the Traditional Sports website.!
