Ssirum, Traditional Sport of Korea
The Korean nation has created and developed many folk games and traditional
sports which suit their physical constitution and sentiments since long time ago.
Among them is ssirum (Korean-style wrestling).
It has something in common with wrestling of other countries as in both the sports
two people strive to throw each other to the ground using strength, hands and skills. But
ssirum players wear a strip of cloth bound round their left thigh–this is special feature
peculiar to it.
On November 26, 2018, ssirum was registered as an intangible cultural heritage
element at the 13th Session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of
the Intangible Cultural Heritage of the UNESCO
