Chusok 2008 Pics (part 6)

Wrestling. WWF. WCW. WWE. Sumo. Greco-Roman. Whatever kind, it's all cool.

Korean wrestling, called Ssireum 씨름, is also pretty damn cool.

And at the Chusok festival in Flushing Meadows Corona Park I saw Ssireum in person for the very first time.

I took a few pics of the event to share with you.

Have a look and let me know what you think. According to my friends, it's not as big as it used to be in Korea. But these guys were doing a great job of keeping the tradition alive and having a fun at the same time.
