AWARDS:     1st – 3rd in each weight class division

MAS wrestling is an ancient sport from Yakutia (far northern region of the Russian Republic of Sakha).   Athletes sit in front of each other, prop their feet against the board that divides the competition arena and pull on a short stick (like a Man o’ Man Deadlift). The athlete that wins the coin toss chooses the stick hold position (internal or external for the first match), and the one who chooses the external hold, shows his position (left or right) and has no right to change it. In second match the grip is reversed/switched (internal/external), and if third math is necessary, another coin toss.  The stick must be over the board and parallel to it, hands and fingers are not to overlap.  Match starts on Referee’s whistle.

An athlete wins the match if he/his:

  • pulls (snatches out) the stick;
  • pulls the opponent over with the stick;
  • opponent releases a hand (hands);
  • opponent moves one or two feet over the board higher than knee level; or
  • opponent gets second caution in single match.

 

Cautions are given for:
  • hooking and resting the stick and/or arms against the board and/or toes;
  • twisting the stick over 90 degrees vertically and horizontally;
  • re-gripping and twisting the stick before start;
  • disobeying the Referee’s orders before start;
  • false start; or
  • setting feet, body or head against the lateral device fastening the board;

 

No Contest is declared if: 
  • the stick breaks; or
  • athletes fall together and are not able to continue the match.

 

Best two of three matches win the Battle.  This is an 8-Man Tournament single Battle elimination with Bonus Points and seeded according to the previous event.  Each Battle is best two of three matches, and carry along Bonus Points as follows:  Win 2-0 and receive 3 Bonus Points; win 2-1 and receive 2 Bonus Points; lose 1-2 and receive 1 Bonus Point; and lose 0-2 and receive NO Bonus Points.

See it in action below YouTube Preview Image

 

The history and rules are explained in video below:  YouTube Preview Image

 

Worth noting, the Scottish Swingle Tree is a traditional Highland Shepherd strength test that dates back 100′s of year. A shepherd’s crook would be used. Two competitors will grab either side of the crook go into a seated position with their feet against a wooden beam. Competitors will attempt to pull one another to their side, the loser being the competitor going over to the opposite side.

3)   A genuine IronMind CoC Silver Bullet must be used, with 2.5 kg of weight hanging from the silver bullet and this weight may take the form of either an IWF or IPF recognized calibrated plate or some other weight that has been demonstrated to be no less that 2.50 kg on a certified or otherwise demonstrably-accurate scale.

4)   The CoC Silver Bullet is inserted by the competitor no deeper than up to the top edge of the clear band, so that the script Captains of Crush® is legible, and so that all four fingers are in contact with the CoC gripper handle* (dropping the pinky completely off the end of the gripper handle is expressly prohibited).

5)   Using one or two hands, the competitor closes the CoC No. 3 in his own time so that the two handles hold the CoC Silver Bullet in place and once this position has been achieved, and only one hand is holding the gripper shut, the referee gives the signal to start the clock.  If the competitor fails to get a secure hold on the CoC Silver Bullet he is allowed one chance to reset it.

6)   Time stops when the Silver Bullet drops from the handles or when the referee observes any opening of the gripper handle for any reason whatsoever.
