Kushti is a form of wrestling practiced in India, It's not just a sport actually, it's a lifestyle made up of strict rules which allow to earn a pure and noble living.


Wrestlers live and train together followed by a guru who is also their spiritual guide. Each apprentice has the responsibility of cleaning, cooking, washing, and other jobs.

Elite wrestlers live under strict rules of celibacy, consume a prescribed diet and are forbidden to drink and smoke.


The place where the wrestlers practice Kushti is called Akhara, which is a a training school and an arena in which to compete against each other and where it is possible to use a range of fairly simple but effective equipment.

The coach is Maha Singh Rao, a legend here, in 2006 he was awarded the Dronacharya award by the government of India, the highest award of the land in the field of coaching of sports and athletics.
