Kushti wrestlingAdd to Lightbox Download
Kolkata, India: Kushti is an ancient form of wrestling, three thousand years old. Fight clubs are rough, poor, “old school” style without new technologies, just training and sweat. And red arena, of course: because the wrestlers fight on sacred red soil. It's a hard life: waking up at 4.30 AM, six times a week and practicing more than 6 hours every day, these warriors lives together and their only belongings are a blanket, a few items of clothes and some books about the art of Kushti.
They life is similar to holy men, like sadhu, infact they are no married and must dedicate the life to practice exercises.
