Wrestling Catch-as-Catch-Can Style

Authored by E. Hitchcock Jr., R. F. Nelligan

"WRESTLING - CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN - THIS style is selected for illustration because it is the most universal, and practically comprises all the other forms. It is the most natural method, the most effective under all circumstances, and requires no special preparation in the way of clothing. The attempt has not been made here to touch upon all the locks and combinations, since there is practically no limit to them, but rather to show the most common and useful, and by presenting them graphically, to show the diverse possibilities of this form of wrestling. As a physical exercise there is no sport which calls for so much strength, endurance and agility, combined with cool judgment; and with men who love to oppose their strength to that of others, no sport is so popular. Wrestling does offer opportunities for ungentlemanly and unsportsmanlike work, but so do all other competitive athletics. It is to the lover of sport, the true amateur, our little work is offered." - E. Hitchcock Jr. and R. F. Nelligan (The Authors)
