FILA, the international wrestling federation, has named Grappling (also known as submission wrestling) as an international wrestling style. Grappling is a combat sport that combines elements of wrestling and jiu jitsu. Athletes are competing to earn submission holds against their opponents. There is also a system of points scored in each match to help determine the winner.
The first Grappling World Championships were hosted by FILA in Antalya, Turkey in September, and the United States swept all nine World gold medals.
