1st of 1953 form the National Sports National Assembly on the show and wrestling contests, is unprecedented in history, wrestling contest. Various regions and ethnic wrestlers gathered in Tianjin, a test of battle, discuss techniques, share experiences, improve the technical level, to promote national unity.

After this fall to be invalid, Zhang Kuiyuan then attack had not, and finally lost. Match, the audience sometimes hold your breath, and sometimes applause. Cheers come and go, and the scene is extremely lively, reflecting the unique wrestling tension, breathtaking, spectacular features.

Finally, in order to adapt to the development of wrestling in 1955 at the Central Sports Institute (now Beijing Institute of Physical Education) set up special courses wrestling, professional wrestling training personnel, the majority of graduating students has served as the province, municipalities and autonomous regions, and the National Team fell to plastic and judo coaches. At the same time started wrestling’s scientific research. 1956 National Sports Commission issued a Chinese-style wrestling athlete grade standards. Held in Beijing in 1956, the national wrestling competition, held in China for the first time wrestling single game, with 21 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions of the 96 team athletes. In the competition of the General Assembly adopted the first batch of 10 Chinese-style wrestling athletes: Song Baosheng, Wang Deying, the Talmud, Mengguang Bin, Ma Qingzong, justice of wood, Yang Ziming, MN that wood, Sengge, Zhang Kuiyuan.

In 1957, the publication of “Chinese-style wrestling rules,” rules of the venue is 10 meters square, straw, weight is divided into eight levels. Although the game is still of three, but each set limit on the number wrestle wrestling, fell a 1 point score of three multi-winner. This completely changed the wrestling tactics. Even if the front lost a few players wrestle, turn the tables back still have a chance, and gave up two players wrestle to lose lose the concerns of the audience, prompting them to dare to attack, give full play technology. These measures encouraged to actively exercise the majority of wrestling fans, and constantly improve the technological level, to quickly promote wrestling in our country. Many parts of the field of private wrestle increasing number of factories and mines has also been wrestling team.

As advocated by the ACFTU, workers at all levels of wrestling events under the leadership of trade unions, have flourished together. Many garment factories, mines and the acquisition of wrestling, wrestling teams composed of regular training. Workers have been held all over the wrestling match, such as the engine of the SF Board primary race in separate ways on the basis of the national railway system at a wrestling match. Hohhot, Inner Mongolia was held in 1957 in the “Inner city and employees Eleventh Conference wrestling”, the workers wrestling events to a climax.

1st National Games, 19 units of 128 Chinese athletes to participate in a wrestling match. Physical Fitness is good, solid basic skills, personal trick is accurate, changeable. Most of the national game has undergone training, and has participated in some provinces and cities between the Tournament, experienced, technically innovative. For example, the Liberation Army (the first in the National Competition) Athletes He Runzong based on the original “guess” and “hides the flower pocket” and created “Phi.” Many athletes use this technique later, and with the changes. Coaches and athletes from around the spirit of the rule is also based on exchange of skills and experience, through in-depth research, are taking effect in the region used in traditional Chinese-style wrestling to wrestling. After systematic training, not only the technology has improved, and the technical characteristics of each team is more distinct and prominent. For example, Beijing, Tianjin, good practices and small movements athletes to clever to win. Inner Athlete legs flexible, powerful, often “fake kick really screwed,” “may co-le” and other techniques defeated opponent. Players like to cuddle and fell in Xinjiang, a large mullahs “net” (hold up the other side a few times and then fell to brandish) a must. Shandong, Liaoning, Henan Players solid, basic good. Shanxi team crotch elusive, hard to detect. Games in this session, the technology to accurately changing direction.

1st National Games, due to three years of natural disasters, few people wrestling practice, and technology fall short Chinese-style wrestling at a low ebb. Gradually recovered after 1963, the amateur sports school with wrestling classes, and organized various forms of competition. 2nd National Games, scoring criteria to the situation of the other bodies were lying on the ground was sentenced to 1 or 2 points, prompting players to use big movements. To encourage players to actively attack, rapid points, make the game more intense, tension, and prevent technical level there are significant differences between injuries, limited game that they scored 10 points to end the game the difference was sentenced to absolute victory.

During the ten years of turmoil, all kinds of wrestling. The game was stopped, and some places even prohibit people from practicing wrestling. Did not resume until the national competition in 1974. 3rd National Games 1975 wrestling contest on the units and not more than athletes, technology has not developed.

Down with “Gang of Four”, the wrestling community through the restoration of order, and gradually resume normal activities. Private wrestle wrestling team field and the factories and mines progressive rehabilitation activities, people who practice the addition of Chinese-style wrestling together. 1982 and 1986, the 2nd and 3rd session of the National Minority Games Wrestling regarded as the main event. 4th National Games, the wrestling competition is divided into ten levels. Fall range of motion in the other tumble and fell to the ground according to the situation can get 1 point, 2 points or 3 points. System of the athletes have been training, technical level is generally increased. Technical and tactical speed toward a positive direction, generation of novice growing. Tenacious player such as Inner Mongolia Dong Yachen brave, energetic, agile, coherent, Shan Yuzhua on the use of continuous attack, not to give you breathing space, his game invincible, reputed wrestle the altar.

China International Wrestling (Greco-Roman wrestling and freestyle wrestling) and judo since the Chinese-style wrestling with the interaction between promote each other. Chinese-style wrestling and judo absorb some of the international wrestling tactics and training methods of teaching. For example, the Greco-Roman wrestling over chest wrestling, freestyle wrestling hold legs, back and other judo techniques grip sleeves and matching exercises and other training methods. Absorbed in the rules of international wrestling and limit the absolute victory of the spirit of the negative, foreign, enriched the arsenal of Chinese-style wrestling techniques, and promote the development of Chinese-style wrestling and improve.

6th National Games in 1986 using the revised rules to the game from scoring standard clothing must fully reflect the characteristics of Chinese-style wrestling – a fall, a stand, do not pay attention to not drop off, to encourage athletes to cleanly technology. Standard scoring rules are based on the principles of Chinese and foreign ancient wrestling score – falls to the situation and the other parts of the body floor to determine how many points. For example, had sub-standard is to vacate the other side broke into the body (both feet off the ground a process) after the trunk (shoulders, back, buttocks, chest, abdomen, hips), or head touch the ground, while he remained standing. Vacated if the body does not make the other side, only the other side of the torso fell to the ground, their natural standing does not fall; or vacated the body fall to the other side, the ground and his torso is not firm, hold hands in each other’s body, only 2 points. The other side broke into four limbs, or to each other after the fall, and he fell to the ground with only 1 point. In order to promote competition more intense fall, more interesting, to shorten the time per game for the two Councils, each game is still 3 minutes, but requires players active attack, passive defense does not allow for a long time, if not attack for 30 seconds, necessary warning time, 1 point for each sentence. 3 warnings will be eligible to cancel the match. Players wrestling clothing for the country red and sky blue and white, the edge of a wrestling clothing patterns. Color to beautiful, generous, coordination, and national characteristics. These provisions not only ethnic Chinese form of wrestling, characteristics, and will further promote Chinese-style wrestling skills improved and extensively.

Chinese-style wrestling is a national form of sport, its long history, exercise value, both in urban and rural areas very popular. We believe that with the vigorous development of China’s socialist cause, wrestling will also have a greater leap forward, the national sport is bound to serve the people better.
