Pehlwani or Kushti is a form of wrestling from the Indian subcontinent. It was developed in the Mughal Empire by combining native malla-yuddha with influences from Persian varzesh-e bastani.The words pehlwani and kushti derive from the Persianterms pahlavani and koshti respectively.
Wrestling competitions, known as dangal or kushti, are held in villages and as such are variable and flexible. In many areas Kushti is still is very popular form of sports and the wrestlers maintain the prescribed lifestyle of Kushti Master.
