Kurash – Küres – Kürösh – Göresh – Gülesh

Traditional wrestling practised in Central Asia, Azerbaijan and Turkey.

The goal is to throw the opponent on his back with full strength and speed without grabbing his pants or legs.

Sometimes still today families who celebrate a wedding organize a Kurash in rural areas.
