Coreeda Wrestling of Australia

Aborigines of Mornington Island, Australia are trying to raise interest in their young kids via traditional wrestling called Coreeda.  Arguably the oldest grappling system in existence, the legend tells the tale of a serpent sending off a young man to study the kangaroo in an effort to learn how to fight without weapons.  What came from that young mans observations is Coreeda, a beautiful indigenous combat art. 

Here is the link to Coreeda Assoc. of Australia: www.coreedaoz.com

You can break our bones and kill us
Bring us to our knees
Take away our children
Against a mother's pleas
But you stop the Dreaming never
The Dreamtime is eternal, forever

Thanks to Wrestling Roots for the link!
