[div class=”notice” class2=”icon”]The following is from an article on DstryrSG, part of the MiddleEasy Network.[/div]
DSTRYR/SG has always prided itself on discussing ALL things grappling. We just love it, and since the site’s inception, we’ve prided ourselves on our broad coverage of the grappling arts, being inclusive and respectful of any martial systems that incorporate people hugging each other and rolling around on the ground together. We’re into that sort of thing. We also respect anyone who likes it too. We’re “fair and balanced,” just like the Fox News Network.
But recently we realized we’ve focused our articles on just a few styles such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Sambo, Catch As Catch Can and Wrestling. However, we know there are MANY more grappling systems in the world, and we’re not too big to realize we don’t much about them. For example, during DSTRYRsg’s history, we’ve ignored the grappling art of the world’s most populous nation. I’m of course talking about China and its grappling art of Shuai Jiao.
Literally meaning, “to throw to the ground through wrestling,” Shuai Jiao is a big martial art from a big country and is as diverse as the people in that world superpower. Different styles of Shuai Jiao include, Beijing, Tianjin, Baoding, Shanxi and Mongolian. Each style uses different rules and focuses on different techniques.
