It is played by two athletes, one wearing a green jacket and the other a blue jacket.
The objective is to try to throw one another to the ground. If thrown to the back, victory is declared. If thrown onto the side, points are awarded.
If thrown to the belly or weakly onto the side, a lower score is given. The one with the most points wins.
Kurash was incorporated into the Asian Indoor Games in 2007.
