Mas-wrestling – Yakut traditional wrestling.

Mas-wrestling, also known as stick wrestling, is a traditional sport from Yakutia.

Games involving pulling different objects such as sticks, whips, leather, planks, spears and lassos, have existed in many different parts of the world. In Yakut, this is known as mas-tardyhyy, in Kyrgyz as tayak tartyshm, as agach guresh in Turkish, and tug of war or stick pull in English.

Two athletes sit facing each other, with the soles of their feet on opposite sides of a board. The two wrestlers grab a stick with their bare hands. In order to win, one wrestler needs to pull the stick from the other, or pull his opponent to his side of the board. Rounds last up to two minutes, and wrestlers gain points based on their performance out of three rounds.
