The inseparable struggle with the Armenian national holidays, which has been going on for thousands of years, has continued to this day. Armenian national wrestling was known to the ancient Armenians. In medieval Armenia, there were special places for Koch competitions, which were called sports and athletics. Koch was an integral part of national holidays, weddings, accompanying pilgrimages, and national games. It was one of the favorite games of the people of Sasun, young men and adults participated in it. The game was held during the pilgrimage during the holidays of Andoka, Mount Marut, Tsovasar, and the monastery of St. Karapet, as well as at weddings and holidays. In Sebastia, the fighters competed with each other even in the cold winter. This custom was widespread in the past in almost all places of Western Armenia.
