The Oil wrestlers, hosted with unique Cazgır manner under the rhythm of drummers full of joy and fun combined with sounds of flutes is what the Anatolia left us as a cultural heritage. This ancient tradition passed on to the future generations shall live forever and is essential part of what is to be Turkish and of Turkishness.
Tall, broad-shouldered fierce wrestlers with bodies doused with oil and shining under the sun shall pick a fight with, like they have done hundreds of years demonstrating a memorable scene of a movie.
600 years along thanks to this ancestors’ heirloom we are experiencing the same excitement with the same passion of the Traditional Turkish Oil Wrestling sport every year.
