International Grappling Federation (IGF) was established in 2014 April 16 .
GRAPPLING - mixed wrestling that has emerged from the various sports of wrestling like Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, sambo, bushido and others. According to the general philosophy of sport, the athlete must respect the values of sport, to be honest and never harm his/her opponent intentionally claiming the victory. Athletes fight to surrender with all wrestling actions: throws, strangulation or painful actions. After the main fighting only during the additional time scores are counted by approved international rules of grappling. Athletes fight wearing short sportswear: sports shorts and special wrestling shirt.
The main goal of International Grappling Federation (IGF) - to unite and coordinate the activities of all federations, unions, associations, clubs and other sports organizations from the entire world belonging to IGF, to promote and support any activity associated with the aims of the International Grappling Federation.
