No Holds Barred: Steve Koepfer and Kris Iatskevich on North American Throwdown, Freestyle Sambo and Catch Wrestling Event Feb. 25
The North American Throwdown will be held Saturday, February 25, 2012, in Joliette, Quebec, Canada, near Montreal. It will feature both the ASA's Eighth Annual North American Freestyle Sambo Championships and the ISWA's Catch Wrestling Open tournament, also known as the Carpentier Open. Grapplers from all styles and affiliations are encouraged to compete.
We spoke with Steve Koepfer and Kris Iatskevich by phone Thursday about this historic event. We discussed the shared history of sambo and catch wrestling, the rules of each of these tournaments, why this is such an important step forward for both styles of grappling, and much, much more.
