As the name suggest, it is not at all the typical wrestling match that you must be thinking. You can say it the Russian version of “Tug of War” where 2 participants have to face each other, sit on the mat, put their legs on the board and the main objective is to pull the rod provided to them with such a power that the other person should leave it.
