ALL ABOUT THE MOST MACHO
OF ALL SPORTS
It is the oldest and most macho sport in the world and at last now there is a KIRKPINAR Book. So if you gonna head for Edirne, do not go without the international bestseller All about Turkish Oilwrestling.
And read that there is a Babylonian bronze that clearly proves that oil wrestling is at least 4650 year old.
Together with the KIRKPINAR Book comes a Great Calendar for 2011, with raw hunks made to kinky art by M-Rat. To enjoy the pictures fron the book now at large and in Full Color. And you can have your calendars and books now available Worldwide!
This calendar covers 2011 with three years of the best of the European Championship in the Most Macho of All Sports: Amsterdam Kirkpinar I, II and III. It includes EXTRA's as material normally not shown. As a canal-cruise in Amsterdam. Even so called 'inactive' moments with the toughest guys on earth are exciting during and after the matches. Nothing on this fine DVD is faked, so be prepared to meet loads of real men and share the pleasures of young chubs and masculine wrestle-masters in full swing.

Up till 2002 Oil Wrestling in the Netherlands were blooming as nowhere else outside Turkey. That year Mr. Wlodek Roszyk, volunteer at the Amsterdam Kirkpinar, had broken all the licentious with Türkevi and MokumTV, who brought Turkish Oil wrestling to Europe.
Mr. Roszyk, from Poland but living in Amsterdam, was 'not satisfied' with the organisation, believed that he could do better on his own. He launched himself, together with the Royal Dutch Power Sport Federation (KNKF Koninklijke Nederlandse Krachtsport en Fitnessfederatie) and the Dutch Olympic Wrestling Federation without saying a word to the people who brought Oil Wrestling to Amsterdam.
Backed by the KNFK and OWF Turkish athletes could no longer compete at any match in the Netherlands without permission of the organizations Mr. Roszyk was preciding, making it very difficult for the initiators to organize another Amsterdam Kirkpinar, as Türkevi is a cultural organisation and not a sport club and MokumTV is a local televisionstation.
But is all seems to be alright for the sport itself, as Mr. Wlodek's new officialdom and two national sport federations lifted things to a larger scale to attrack more people as the few thousands present at the Amsterdam Kirkpinar of Türkevi and MokumTV.
Now Mr. Wlodek Roszyk blames Türkevi that only 36 visitors (in stead of the many thousands expected) showed up on his own Oilwrestling Festival, leading to the complete breakdown of of oil wrestling in the Netherlands.
We regret that his actions caused the end of the annual Kirkpinar of Amsterdam and oil wrestling in Holland on a larger scale so far, but expressively deny hither responsibility and fully support The New European Championship of Turkish Oilwrestling in Switserland., organized by our friend Ali Topaloglu.
Mr. Ali from the Thurgau Kanton in Swiss was 'hakim' at all the Amsterdam Kirkpinars!

Review DVD Oil Over Europe 1
Certain it was all macho! For the fast growing number of fans
of worlds oldest sport it was no secret:
A feverish underground network of collectors has been at work trading tapes. Copies of copies of the poorest quality were sold or exchanged by the thousands.
And now at last, something of the true extent and value of much of the treasure long sought after by collectors is brought to light. The very best of those broadcasts are released in high quality on a bona-fide, hard-core single smashing DVD!
For those exhaustive and insatiable collectors, the "completists" who like to think that they've seen everything: I bet you never saw more hunks on one single video ever! Included are the prime years of the European Championships and extra bonusus of documentairies nehind the scenes! This DVD kicks OILWRESTLING into high gear!
Order the hottest action, youll be watching cool stuff and share the feeling. Produced by Türkevi and MokumTV.
You see the preparations and competition of the prime years of the European Championships.! As extra bonus historical footage about how oilwrestling was introduced in Western Europe. You witness the preparation witch lead to that smashing start in Amsterdam.
Be sure to obtain this great DVD with the best oilwrestling ever filmed!
Action for more MokumTV DVD's on
Sure, that DVD Oil Over Europe I is great, not to say the best in this field so far.
But what about releasing more? The 635th Kirkpinar of Edirne, why don't they put that also on the market?
I myself own a VHS copy of that MokumTV broadcast, bought for no less than $40. Yes, an illicit copy of very meagre quality.
So, if the authorized stuff now can be bought for a little at
www.lulu.com/mokumtv, please, please, please, release that great stuff
MokumTV made about the 635th Kirkpinar of Edirne.
