To the untrained eye it might look as if two overgrown toddlers are desperately grabbing onto each others diapers in a fierce attempt not fall over. Others might mistake it for an experimental Sumo diet program. Some of the more progressive anthropologists will even argue that you have stumbled upon a rare indigenous ritual of male bonding.
However, only when you take the proper scientific approach you will unravel the fascinating universe of La Lucha Canaria as one of the four fundamental interactions of nature, along with electromagnetism, and the nuclear strong force and weak force. Modern physics describes Canarian wrestling using the general theory of relativity by Einstein, in which the phenomenon is a consequence of the curvature of spacetime governing the motion of inertial objects.
Canarian wrestling, however, is most familiar as the agent that gives weight to objects with mass and causes them to fall to the ground when dropped.
