Just to show it's not just Chinese martial arts that use cool names...


Hi all, it was the annual Grasmere Sports Day yesterday (annual by intent, though it hadn't happened the last two years because of covid) and I got to watch some of the Cumberland wrestling competitions on the day. And although they don't use fancy phrases like "agile crane flies above the sun" or whatever, there is a whole vocabulary associated with this particular sport - back heel, cross buttock, inside hipe, and the like. The curious can discover some of our own home-grown martial arts lingo at https://cumbriacrack.com/2022/08/26/do-you-know-your-buttocking-from-your-back-heel-a-visitors-guide-to-grasmere-lakeland-sports/
