Leveraging modern study of wrestling (such as Judo) against historical German sources has allowed us to create a course outline for a modern introduction to historical wrestling (Ringen).

What is Ringen? Ringen is the German language term for grappling (wrestling). In the context of the German school of Historical European Martial Arts during the Late Middle Ages and the German Renaissance, Ringen refers to unarmed combat in general, including grappling techniques used as part of swordsmanship.
