Coreeda

Coreeda – Australian Aboriginal Martial Arts

Coreeda is an Australian aboriginal martial arts focused mainly on wrestling techniques. This martial arts uses techniques that are hundreds or even thousands of years old. Coreeda is somewhat similar to Sumo wrestling as you must force your opponent outside a circle. However, unlike Sumo, you can use prone grappling techniques, etc.

According to the Coreeda Association of Australia. “Coreeda as a sporting activity is divided into two equally important components, coreeda dance and coreeda combat. The dance component, which is mostly based on traditional kangaroo dance steps, is the initial warm up ritual and gives competitors an opportunity to display their abilities in strength, speed and agility… Coreeda combat is divided into four rounds or quarters, each lasting a maximum of two minutes. The winner of the dance component can choose which position they will start with, inside the circle, known as the defender, or outside the circle, known as the attacker. The role of the attacker is to try and force the defender outside the boundary of the sun circle by means of pushing, throwing or rolling them, all within a time limit of twenty seconds. Naturally the role of the defender is to restrain the attacker within the sun circle for longer than the twenty second time count”.
