Korean Ssireum Wrestling (Hard Korea)



Whether it's soccer, martial arts or joku, Koreans strive to be the best, and wrestling is no exception. Ssireum (씨름) is a traditional type of Korean wrestling dating back to 50 AD. This modern style first became popular during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and modern Korean wrestling dates back to 1912 when the first official competition was held. It may look like Sumo, but the rules are actually quite different. The objective of this style is to get any part of your opponent's body from above the knee to touch the ground. The participants wear looping belts, or satba, which are used to try to maneuver opponents down into the sand that covers the ring. There are four weight classes in the sport, each named for one of four famous mountain peaks in Korea, and today women also compete, but only against other women. In this video, Kris and Matt receive brief training from Lee Taehyun, (who has won more wrestling matches than any other wrestler in Korea with over 40 championships) before trying their beginner's luck with some of the wrestlers at Yongin University. Yeah, this won't take long... it's a good thing for these two that bodily harm is not really the objective of this sport.
