Ringen

This competition tests the participants' ability to use the standing wrestling techniques of 15th and 16th century Europe . The rules have been written to allow the use of as many techniques from medieval wrestling sources as possible while discouraging the use of modern actions not found in the historical sources.

This tournament is focused on standing techniques only and does not take into consideration actions that may occur on the ground. For this event, all throws should place a fighter in a dominant position over his opponent.
