Scottish Backhold Martial Arts: Exploring Inner Fortitude And Resilience: Peaceful Self-Defense Techniques

Grove Hervise

Scottish Backhold is a wrestling technique with historical roots in Scotland. Wrestlers engage in a distinctive grip called the "backhold," in which they grasp one another from behind at the waist while their arms are trapped beneath the opponent's arms. The grip of the Scottish Backhold is what sets it apart from other wrestling disciplines.
The objective of Scottish Backhold grappling is to force the opponent to the ground while retaining authority over the backhold grip. Most matches are conducted in a "trunk" or "ring," which is a circular or square ring, and outcomes are frequently determined by the best of three falls.
Scottish Backhold is regarded as both a competitive sport and a cultural tradition with a long history in Scotland. In addition to maintaining its presence in diverse regions of Scotland, this practice has also garnered international acclaim.
