Style
The style included groundwork and had the reputation of being an extremely fierce and violent sport. Sources show that there were some rules trying to safeguard the wrestlers from serious injury. For instance, there was a ban on breaking an opponent's bones.
In the counties to the north, Lancashire and Westmorland wrestling developed with rules designed to minimise injury to the participants.
