Some of the best advice I ever got as a parent was this: A baby boy is like a lion cub. You need to play with him that way.

It's why cats and dogs tend to wrestle and play around. It's training for survival later on.

Wrestling in European martial arts was also considered a good way to develop balance and power, on top of the upper body strength needed for melee tools.

In Mongolian, wrestling is used to settle clan and territorial disputes. They use advanced foot work and rooting from horse riding.

The ancient Greeks were also big on wrestling, for various reasons.
