    Hi, I want to have a comparison with Iraninan’s wrestlering and other countries wresteling.

    Owenr of this picture is Mr. Takhti (Jahan Pahlevan Gholamreza Thakhti in Iran).
    He was a really good man.

    but this link is Japanese wrestlering:

    American wrestlering and other countries wrestlering is not better than Japanese wrestlering.

    I’m sorry for this pictures and I can’s say anything about this pictures.

    You can judge…

    You are an Iranian and you should know who is Takhti.

    Thank you
