Kasakh Kures

Language: Kashmiri, subtitles Eng

Kuresi in Kazakhstan is a type of traditional wrestling practised in communities that requires players to battle it out on foot to get the opponent's shoulders on the ground. Where trainers previously coached boys to participate in local contests, these days kuresi is a national sport practised by men and women with international competitions taking place, broadcast in multiple countries. Said to build tolerance, goodwill and solidarity amongst communities, kuresi is transmitted in master classes and sports clubs.
