Kokh

Armenia
Kokh (Armenian: Կոխ) is the Armenian national wrestling. Two varieties of Kokh are Lori Kokh and Shirak Kokh. The winner is the one who throws the opponent on the mat without boosting and/or turning him. It is allowed to grab the waist and chokha (traditional Caucasian dress) above the waist. It is allowed to throw the opponent by the legs. A Kokh fight usually lasts from 5 to 10 minutes, but it is not limited. Before the beginning of a fight wrestlers do folk dances. At the request of the audience, the judges and participants, the winner performs the dance of honor.
