Gada, NAIL jori and Dumbell competition


This is a video demonstrating 3 types of implement used in competitions. The Gada weighs in at 40 kilos, the nail Jori at 18 kilos a piece and the dumbbells are 35 kilos each. These were performed outside of a small temple just adjacent to the main street. I was fortunate enough to be taken there on the back of a motorcycle with a similarly mobilised gang of Pahlavans. It was an experience I shall never forget.

I hope you enjoy!
