Every night would come a long way after a grueling game of Iguana wrestling and these guys would invariably end up on the floor, middle of the floor, with their heads hanging. You gotta imagine this: This fellows takes his hat off, another guy takes off his hat, you hook it onto the back of his neck, you hold it there and then, for some reason, you line up face to face on all fours and then you pull it. This is known as “lining up your shots.”
I had recently finished reading about the old times of iguana wrestling in the rain forests of New Zealand. In fact, the term, iguana wrestling, is not derived from any type of animal – they are actually called “Iguana” by locals and they are not related to snakes or lizards either. It was Herb Kelly, who popularized the sport in that country back in the 1920’s. He saw the potential and decided to take it to the United States.
The first thing he did was get a patent on the process. Later on, more US trainers came and tried to invent ways of teaching the sport. However, none of them were good enough. They never thought to promote it beyond their own circles. This made it all the more unique and as a result, the sport itself became more popular.
Now, many people in North America and even Europe have taken the sport to new levels. There are all types of professional leagues where some of the best players from various teams battle it out until the winner is declared. These days, the players wear special T-shirts and the jerseys have names and logos of all the NHL teams. In short, NHL Ice Hockey players now have their own professional ice hockey league.
Competitions are open to all players. You do not need to be an expert on iguana to try your luck. There are even some tournaments that allow amateurs to enter and even place bets. This has made the game all the more realistic.
If you want to take part in the Ice Hockey season, all you have to do is contact your favorite local sporting goods store and inquire about having an iguana t-shirt made for you. You can also purchase your own iguana boots and clothing. However, you must be sure that you do no breed the iguana for this purpose. These days, breeding the species has become almost impossible. In fact, only three of the seven pure breeds are still alive in the wild. In case you do breed one, chances are, your iguana would suffer from numerous health defects.
In addition to sports, iguana wrestling also serves as a great form of exercise. They get to run around and perform aerial acrobatic tricks. Both leotards and uniforms used in the game are designed in such a way that they allow the players to move both their legs and arms deftly and agilely. Thus, they are able to take part in a number of different physical exercises.
The iguana wrestling game has now become an Olympic sport. Competitors from all over the world gather annually to take part in the exciting sport. Competitors wear leotards with costumes and masks. The game normally starts with the refereeing a bout. Competitors then use holds such as arm bars, headlocks and submission holds.
Most people think that the iguana is a reptile. However, they are actually amphibians. When they want to run around, they do so with their legs. They walk on their toes and use both their front and hind legs to propel them forward. During a match, they are usually seen wearing a greenish colored body suit. Their head is covered with a simple head cap.
If you are planning to take up and adventure in iguana wrestling, you should be ready to learn a lot about this animal. The first thing that you should understand is that iguana is very smart and intelligent creatures. As pets though, they do not need much in the way of care and attention. Provided that you provide it with the right kind of habitat, with food and water, you would be able to take care of them like animals. You can even train them in ways that they will not eat away at your pet foods. It is important to learn early on that the iguana is an eater and not a drinker.
The most amazing thing about this sport is that it is a disease-free condition. In fact, it has been medically proven that it does not cause any health conditions in its victims. Most doctors and scientists in the field of zoology consider it as one of the safest animal sports there is. It gives you an opportunity to bond with another living creature while helping to improve your overall health as well. In conclusion, if you are planning to join in an iguana wrestling match, you will do yourself a world of good by doing so.
