    In the last shot that is a YURT on the right hand side. Sorta like a Mongolian Teepee. Burp.

    I would say that it is a modified seoi nage from judo. The only real difference is the head position. Couldn't get the embed function to work but here is a demonstration. Again, the one in the Mongolian video looks to be a modification of it.

    This past Sunday they had a championship match between Yekini (undefeated champion since 2007) and Balla Gaye 2 the challenger. One throw wins the match as you will see if you click on the link below. Wrestling is the national sport here and this match was followed with great intensity all over the country. After the match every neighborhood in the city erupted in VERY loud cheering! There is much belief in mystical powers, thus their fetishes (cords on their body), mud and bathing in "spiritual" liquids. The challenger came with 45 marabouts (spiritual mediums) in his camp and that would be interpreted as why he won. Here is the link in case you want to watch it. It isn't too close to folkstyle or freestyle as you will see. But you have to admit, they're not skinny!

    I would say it is a modified fireman's. The escape from failed fireman's we called a Syracuse.



    The Mongolian hits this same move from his feet.

    Very interesting! I'm glad they weren't there for the horrors. Incidentally I read yesterday that Charles Taylor (former president of Liberia) was convicted at the Hague of crimes against humanity for Liberia's involvement in the Sierra Leone horrors. He is the first head of state to be convicted as such since the Nuremberg trials after WWII. Hopefully other despots are taking note!

    Yes, Jacob got quite a workout. He both won and lost. He got a blessing, but limped for the rest of his life.

    You think like my wife, KR (and that's usually good). She found some other clips with more on it and said I should add those too. I thought you all would be interested in so much, so gave the shorter version. You'd think by now I'd learn to listen to my wife more!!

    [Incidentally my wife's not even a wrestling fan. She's from Georgia, so that's my excuse.]

    I'd have to watch the Mongolian move a few more times and have to run right now. But it seemed that the Mongolian move twisted/leveraged the opponent's arm more which put him on his back.

    Looks like a fireman's minus the "crotch" arm to me. My coach actually used to have us drill our fireman's this way sometimes, minus that crotch arm. When properly done like the Mongolian does, you do not need the "crotch" arm at all, all of the displacement of the opponent's weight and the resulting flip is accomplished by tight control of the opponent's arm with your other arm combined with good timing and a pop of the hips. The only difference is that it looks like he bails out to his back at the end.
