The five significant differences between Mexican Wrestling and WWE

With more than 80 years of history, Lucha Libre is one of the sports that are already part of the culture of Mexico. However, in the last decade, he has faced a rival that apparently looks more spectacular and popular, American wrestling, specifically the WWE.

Mexican Wrestling and WWEIf something the gringos know how to do it is to sell and that is what they have done in our country thanks to the marketing, they apply so well, but if it is about style to fight the Mexican fans, they prefer the method that is developed in the Council. World Wrestling and the AAA.

Before the great event that WWE will give next Saturday in Mexico City, we present the five significant differences between wrestling in Mexico and the United States

Paraphernalia vs. Sobriety

The popularity of the WWE is due in large part to the show that they mount around a fight. From the presentation of the fighter -some of them with retinue-, the speeches before the start of the battle. Such is the show that makes it often last longer than the fight itself. A clear example was the appearance of Dwayne Johnson, ‘The Rock,’ in the RAW event on October 6, where his fight did not last 30 seconds.

On the other hand, Mexican wrestling is more focused on fighting. While they give their time to present the fighters, the focus is on combat and not so much time is lost in them.

Classic wrestling vs. American style

While Americans are known to be more direct, that is, resorting more to blows than to keys. Also, the struggles in Mexico are two out of three falls, and in the United States, it is one.

Physicists

The physicist of the ‘gringo’ fighter stands out for being more stylized, better worked and more significant, by pure genetics. Many Mexicans say that they do not have the best body and that they are even fanning zones, but the truth is that they have a physique more similar to that of a fighter and not so much a bodybuilder as their counterpart.

Mask vs. Hair

Mexican wrestling is characterized by extra that adds the cover that helps to create an entire identity, and that can be adopted by children who, by putting on the ‘tapa’ help, become their idols.

In the WWE the mask is little used and used, to the extent that the few fighters who work for this company are Mexican, like ‘Sin Cara.’

Divas vs. Wrestlers

It is one of the most attractive points of the WWE. His athletes look like models and become the spectators’ fantasy. While Mexican wrestlers are not as famous for their attractiveness if they are for their fighting style, which is similar to that of men.

The Olympic Fight Comes With New Rules Looking To Be More Attractive

Dragon King Wrestling & Olympic BattleThe Olympic battle seeks to adapt to the modern times. After battling and beating other sports for prevailing in the Olympic program, this combat sport launched new rules, already approved, to be implemented in the Olympic Games of Rio.

This weekend, the Women’s Fight Open will take place in Rio (January 30-31). Precisely the female branch was pleased with new rules, hoping that they become more attractive. Squash and the unified proposal of baseball and softball were overcome by the Olympic fight in 2014, when the match was expected to be out for the Tokyo Games, 2020.

The official website of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro highlights the new rules for this sport. “To guarantee the permanence of the discipline in the Olympic Program, the International Wrestling Federation (FILA) updated its regulations in search of greater aggressiveness and dynamics during the fights,” highlights the website.

The main change, he explains, was the duration of the fight, which has gone from three rounds of two minutes to two or three minutes with a cumulative score, which means that the fighters have more time to try to defeat their opponent by obtaining the most significant amount of points.

This Sport Brings A New Concept To Rio 2016

Rio 2016Expanding the participation of women in sports was also another critical point in the new era of the discipline. To achieve this, new feminine categories were included -58kg, 53kg, 69kg, and 75kg replaced 55kg and 72kg-, which will appear in the test event.

In freestyle as well as in Greco-Roman, athletes have the same objective: to put the opponent back on the mat, accumulating points according to the movements used. The big difference with wrestling is that you cannot actively use your legs or attack your opponent’s.

The Olympic wrestling championship will take place at Rio Carioca Arena 1, in Rio de Janeiro, where 65 athletes from different countries are expected, including the Russian Olympic champion, Natalia Vorobieva.

We will see. Athletes were competing in all Olympic categories. The competition will also be faster, so it is essential to evaluate the administration of the installation. We will also have 66 volunteers at the test event to ensure that they will be ready during the Games, “said Gilles Toloni, director of the wrestling competition in Rio 2016.

All You Need to Know About Kickboxing Before Getting Started

kickboxing History

Did you know that kickboxing technically originated in Japan?

A Japanese karate master Tatsuo Yamada became really interested in the ancient Thai sport of Muay Thai. He wanted to incorporate its rules with karate to make a full contact version. In the 1960’s, there were big Muay Thai events that took place in Osaka.

Karate athletes wanted to test it out against their own artform so they entered competitions versus Muay Thai athletes to see which form would win. While the karatekas won, it prompted some to learn Muay Thai and eventually came up with a hybrid sport which they dubbed “kickboxing”.

It saw its heyday in the 70’s, and spread to the West in the 80’s. These days, kickboxing has branched out of the combat arena and into the workout and recreation realm.

Benefits

Innovations in aerobic exercises in the 90’s came in the form of incorporating martial arts movements while dancing to music. The kickboxing style taught at gyms today for the purpose of body toning and weightloss stems from those innovations.

If you’re working towards a better physique and overall body conditioning, this sport can definitely help. Its benefits include:

  • kickboxing styleBurning fat
  • Increase flexibility
  • Healthier heart
  • Improved strength and stamina
  • Develop balance
  • Mental strength training

Things to Note

Fight vs. Cardio Kickboxing

The martial art is a combination of two practices that are borne of the need for self-defense and offense. If you want to compete, you’d have to specify that you want to learn the combat form of the practice. The cardio version is optimized for workout purposes and does not really offer anything in the form of defense.

In short, if you’re only doing kickboxing for fitness, it’s better to not get into fights with real martial artists.

Instructor

Either way you choose, you will need someone to guide you through the practice. Gyms or studios offering lessons have instructors for both purposes. They will come in handy especially for mental conditioning – sometimes, our bodies can take the workout but our minds can’t. This is where instructor’s experience will come in for motivation.

Warm ups

This is especially important for people whose only form of exercise is running on the treadmill. Kickboxing activates muscles all over the body with its complex movements. So it’s vital to do basic stretches for at least 10 minutes to prevent injuries.

Dangers

As with all types of physical activity, injuries can be sustained while practicing. The most common parts that are injured are muscles and joints in the knees, back, hips, ankles, and shoulders.

If you’re thinking about going into competitive mode, you should also note that professional kickboxers sustain more facial injuries than that of normal boxers due to the involvement of feet in the striking mix.
