Referee Council in Kirkpinar


Two or three old wrestler respected and trusted by the public become referees upon the invitation of Kirkpinar Agha, and follow the oil wrestling matches from the Agha's tent. As no one can put objections to the decision of referees, the defeated pehlivan rises up as a sign of his defeat without waiting for the decision of the referee and hugs his opponent, then he leaves the field by walking behind the winner of their match.
