The word "Alysh" meaning "fighting to determine the strongest" finds its roots in ancient Turkish and was chosen by the International Federation of Wrestling on Belts to embody the bringing together of all belt wrestling styles practised throughout the world.

The belt wrestling matches take place over a period of 5 minutes for men and 4 minutes for women. The competitors wear white trousers and either a blue or a green jacket held tight by a flexible red belt. While holding each other's belt, they try to throw their opponent to the mat.
 
The technical points are awarded according to the amplitude of the throws: 1 point if the opponent lands on a knee or buttocks, 2 points if the opponent lends sideways or on a hip, and 6 points if the opponent lends on the back. The first competitor who scores 6 points wins the match.

The rules adopted are purposely simple so that all national belt wrestling styles can express themselves within a generic form of the discipline. Belt wrestling was introduced to the programme of the SportAccord World Combat Games in 2010 with 1 male category.

Grappling is a style of Wrestling that combine technique originated in different sports such as Freestyle Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Luta Livre Brasileira, Catch Wrestling, Judo, Sambo, and the aim of the sport consist in taking down and control the opponent on the ground and submit him using chokes and locks.

Grappling, allowing technique and holds from all the wrestling sports, has the most permissive rules set amongs them. Being most of the fight spent on the ground, Grappling can be considered as one of the safest wrestling sport to practice.

Grappling, of all the modern wrestling styles, is the closest to Ancient Greek wrestling or P?le (????), that was practiced in the old Olympic Games. Grappling is divided in 2 styles: Grappling No-Gi, where athletes wear shorts and a compression shirt called rashguard , and Grappling Gi, where athletes wear a kimono. For its peculiarity of teaching to neutralize an opponent without hurting him, it is now used in many countries for self defense training military and police force .

The origin of “ Pahlavani wrestling “ goes back to ancient Persia and was said to have been practiced by mythological Iranian heroes in battles .in fact  the Pahlavani wrestling originally used to train warriors. It combines martial arts and wrestling technics , calisthenics, strength training and epic music. It recognized by UNESCO as among the world's longest-running forms of sport.

The person who ever was well trained and defeat others would called Pahlavan or hero. The Pahlvani heros are popular among people. This style of wrestling confront two competitors who try to take control over each other by throwing him back on his shoulder.

In Pahlavani wrestling, wrestlers wear a pants which extends from waist to below of his knees that contains a belt to hold the pants. In this style wrestler is allowed to use or grab pants or belt as a grip. Also the wrestler can use legs, waist, clinch, leg trips and more likely lift and throw.

Pankration, from the Greek words "Pan" and "Kratos" meaning "the one who controls everything", is a world heritage martial art with the unique distinction of being the only martial sport in existence that can legitimately trace its roots to the ancient Olympic Games from 648 BC to 393 AD.

Today, pankration is developed by FILA as a mild form of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), which forbids striking to the head. Pankration is practised both by men and women, according to the same rules.

In addition to individual competition, pankration includes two forms of choreographic team events that can be showcased with or without weapons. "Palaismata" takes place between two athletes and aims at assessing their level of knowledge while "Polydamas" takes place between 1 defendant and 3 attackers to simulate a dangerous situation to be overcome by the athlete.

Pankration is an efficient form of self-defence that can be used for police and security training. Pankration was introduced to the programme of the SportAccord World Combat Games in 2010 with 3 male categories.

Women's wrestling is a combat sport which confronts two female competitors who try to gain control over their opponent through the use of throws, locks, leg trips, and clinching techniques. Similarly to Freestyle wrestling, all holds can involve the legs in order to ultimately pin the the opponent's shoulders to the mat.

If a wrestler manages to do so, victory by "fall" is proclaimed, otherwise, the match pursues until the end of the regular time and the winner is decided according to the technical points scored.

Women's wrestling was introduced to the programme of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens with 4 weight categories following the reduction of the male categories' number.

Wrestling can be traced as far back as human records go. There is evidence of its early existence in ancient Egyptian wall paintings. In ancient Greece, 2,000 years later, it was among the most popular events at the original Olympic Games. The sport has taken many forms over its long history. Different versions have flourished in different areas of the world. Wrestling is a grappling sport - the aim is to force your opponent to the ground. Matches take place on a mat, and last for three periods of two minutes, with a 30-second break in between. There are two styles of Wrestling at the Games: Greco-Roman and Freestyle. In Freestyle, competitors can use all parts of their body to do moves and holds. In Greco-Roman, use of the legs to make contact is forbidden.
