The large padded suits come with helmets and a 15’x15′ tournament mat to wrestle on. The mat can go on any soft surface such as grass or astroturf or inside a hall.
Challengers start by squaring up to each other inside the inner ring. According to tradition, participants bow to each other and then the referee indicates the start of the match. You can make up your own points system and the rules are simple enough – get your opponent down or both feet off the mat to score.
