I'M OBSESSED with submission fighting videos made before the sport mutated into its current commercialized and hyper-technical state. So lately I've been hunting around for no-holds-barred submission wrestling matches and tournaments filmed in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
This period of time was the Wild West of submission wrestling when gloves were optional, the rules were unclear, the fighting was primal and less polished, the action was uber-manly and often brutal.
I've acquired an archive of rare fight footage from back then which I'll be making officially available next week.
But today you can get a small sample of what will soon be available--a Russian no-holds-barred fight from 1999. Michael & Viktor punch, wrestle, kick, and choke it out good on the mat. Download this video HERE.
Me and this Russian dude had some great matches a couple of years back. Tough guy, fairly clean fights, very sweaty. Watch the entire video HERE.
I've made a few wrestling videos with Gaz which feature a lot of gut punching and awesome grappling. This is a short clip of one of our matches. You can see our fights HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE!
Really primal and violent fight. Watch it all HERE.
One of the most erotically charged wrestling scenes in the history of cinema can be found in the 1969 film Women in Love, when Alan Bates and Oliver Reed lock up and and engage in a nude wrestling match by firelight.
Last year I was commissioned to recreate this incredible wrestling scene. I was glad to take this on, daunting as it was. I think I was successful in reinterpreting and recreating this iconic film sequence in a way that honored the original character of the film, while also inserting some Krush attitude. You can check out a trailer of the version I came up with, and download the entire video here.
