    It is just so far off of the practical aspect of the sport. I read the chapter you suggested as well as skimmed some others and the author really comes off (to me at least) as a typical pointy headed intellectual who had to write a scholarly paper about something and this is what he came up with.

    I've seen some Indian wrestling and it seemed fairly interesting but this monograph was pretty esoteric.

    I think the author is just trying to touch base with all aspects of the sport, including the spiritual.
