Kurash is a national treasure of the Uzbek people. Today Kurash is officially included in the world network of non-Olympic sports and is supported by UNESCO. Kurash – as a kind of national wrestling first appeared on the territory of modern Uzbekistan more than 3 thousand years ago.
According to historical data, the Uzbek people for many centuries were famous for their wrestlers-palvan and legendary riders who became the founders of national sports of Uzbekistan, such as kurash, belbogli kurash, ulok-kupkari, turon, boykurgan.
