The idea of the International Belt Wrestling Association (IBWA) is to unite belt wrestling (traditional wrestling) sport associations from different countries to create a common platform for sports and cultural exchange. Traditional wrestling sport, such as belt wrestling, is popular in many countries, but the rules are slightly different due to historical and cultural reasons. The aim of the IBWA is to enable these sports to collaborate on an international level, while retaining the unique rules and techniques that make them culturally important and widely popular in each nation.
