Qartuli Chidaoba folk style of wrestling in Georgia (Caucas)
Posted 07 November 2008 - 10:07 AM
28 wrestlers participated; among them guys who have been medalists at World and/or European championships in judo or sambo at 100, +100 or in the open class.
Judoka: Lasha Gujejiani, Adam Okroashvili, Zviad Khanjaliashvili, Georgi Kizilashvili, Nodar Metreveli, Ioseb Mskhaladze.
Best sambo wrestler at the chidaoba nationals – Mirian Pavliashvili, 2007 world & 2008 European champ at 100 kg.
The final: Alexi Davitashvili (3rd at European judo championships in 1994, 2000 and 2001 at +100 and open) vs. Zviad Chinchaladze (2003 European champ and 2003, 2006 and 2007 world medalist at +100 in sambo; medalist at judo tourneys).
Davitashvili won and became the Georgian national champ for the 8th time.

Almost all top judoka participated (or were moved to participate) - Liparteliani, Zviaduri, Okruashvili, Khergiani...
The idea of the judo federation: Judo under the new rules and the Georgian folk style wrestling have some common features - for instance, you cannot grab below the belt in stand-up, so the folk style may be a good exercise for judoka.

Try again. Sometimes there may be any problems; sometimes they work perfect.
Second link, at 19:33 but his opponent withdrew after 2 min; nothing exciting in that match.
In the same video at 19:31 - Liparteliani's "ippon"
The first dual meet (the first link) was better. Tons of "ippons"
At 18:57 Mskhaladze sending the 50 kg heavier Zviadi Khanjaliashvili to his back.

The +100 judoka Adam Okruashvili won the whole thing beating 8-time title-holder Alexi Davitashvili in the finals.
What was new - the jacket.
The Georgian Chidaoba federation (re)introduced a jacket with sleeves which got abandoned 75 years ago, in Soviet times.
They say Soviet functionaries had replaced the original jacket with sleeves with a sleeveless one in their attempts to destroy Georgian cultural heritage. In this sense, the intoduction of the new old jacket with sleeves is believed to be a return to the "old traditions".
This is how the wrestling costume looked in the late 19th and until the early 1930s
A picture on the cover of 1935 instruction book shows the new jacket - with short sleeves.
The same jacket in a manual from 1940, but shorts instead of trousers:
1984 manual - sleeveless jacket:
The Dec 17 2009 jacket (pics form the final Okruashvili vs Davitashvili)
Okrishavili vs Davitashvili matches on video:
Oct 27, final at the Cup of Georgia (seen also in one of the videos in the previous posts); sleeveless
Dec 17, final at the open class nationals; new jacket
This is how costumes (and wrestling styles) change.

rules of Chidaoba we can find only on georgian language http://sport.gov.ge/...amp;info_id=561
chidaoba is alike to nowaday judo rules but according to chidaoba rules you can't continue fight in parter,you must fight in stand.90% of georgians judokas come in judo from chidaoba.thas why georgian judokas weak point is parter they can't fight in down.many chidaoba mode inculcate in judo.
