Rassling is a traditional sport that has existed in Mongolia for centuries and it is one of Mongolia' s age-old "Three Manly Skills" (along with horsemanship and archery). Genghis Khan considered rassling as an important way to keep his army in good physical and combat shape. So after Genghis to be Khan, he made rassling as a test to check his soldiers. And then rassling was ranked as the first item of game in folks.
The best time to visit rassling is definitely during the traditional Mongolian Nadamu Festival period. Nadamu, meaning entertainment or frolicking, is the foremost traditional festival for Mongol nomads taking place in July or August. It includes Three Manly Skills (Horse racing, rassling and archery). As time goes by, the festival today also includes equestrian polo, horsemanship, track-and-field events, and folk singing and dancing.
Rassling matches are held in the open on a grassy field, or bare dirt ground not too hard or littered with gravel. There are no weight classes. A small wrestler can end up rassling someone twice his size. At the time of Nadamu, wrestlers gather to Hohhot. Because not only can the winner get the respect from people and love from girls but also he can get a sheep or some tea or even a horse.
