History
There are numerous testimonies about the remote origins of this struggle that was practiced in the island of Sardinia, like other competitive forms, some of which disappeared in the first half of the nineteenth century because considered dangerous during the country festivals, religious ceremonies, fairs livestock, agricultural and pastoral collective rituals as harvesting, threshing and the shearing of livestock. Landowners and farmers sometimes found themselves among the servants skilled wrestlers, gherradores, experienced players strumpa (or S'Istrumpa or istrumpa) which increased their personal pride when competing in the above mentioned parties. The similarity of Strumpa fight with the most famous wrestling fight greek-Roman and leads to the assumption of the origins still very remote.

Style
It is a kind of fight that we practice starting from a defined position that is clearly indicated by a regulation of the race: at the start of the official, the wrestlers will arise standing opposite each other. Setting is bringing his arm in the armpit and the other above the humerus-shoulder of the opponent; the right cheek touches the opposite, a hand holds the other wrist or even your other hand behind the back of the opponent in order to tighten it securely. It does not allow any other form of taking and not allowed to fight, leaving his grip and help place your hands free on the opponent. The wrestlers starting in the same conditions: to win will need the strength, balance and dexterity.
