No Holds Barred: Boyd Ritchie on the Revival of Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling 

On this audio edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with Boyd Ritchie of the International Submission Wrestling Alliance (ISWA) about the revival of catch, or catch-as-catch-can, wrestling.

The ISWA is sanctioning the CACC Southeastern Regional Championship. This event will be the first of several planned regional tournaments in catch-as-catch-can wrestling, leading up to a national championship in 2012. The CACC Southeastern Regional Championship takes place Saturday, November 12, from 2:00 PM to 6:30 PM ET, at the YMCA at 205 W. Richardson Avenue in Summerville, South Carolina, near Charleston. For those who compete in this tournament, there will be a free seminar with Kris Iatskevich of the ISWA on Sunday, November 13.

We spoke with Boyd Ritchie Thursday evening by phone about this tournament and the revival of the sport of catch-as-catch-can wrestling, which was once enormously popular in the early part of the twentieth century. We discussed the rules of this style of submission wrestling, some of the history of this sport, how the future is beginning to look very bright for it, and much more.
