KazNU is famous for its wrestlers. The University sports complex has the sections on freestyle wrestling, judo, sambo, sumo and kakaksha kures. Experienced instructors instill in young people self-defense skills, teach techniques of various types of wrestling. Our students are turning into real horsemen, courageous and strong. And this was proved by the tournament «KazNU's Barys», which was held at KazNU.

In the future we plan to organize a tournament among the Universities of the country. We are sure that the national team of KazNU will adequately perform at the spring Universiade», - emphasized the coach of the Kazakhsha kures section Fayzolla Koyshimanov.
We talked with the participants of the tournament. Yernur Togzhanov, a second-year student of the Faculty of Information Technology, won the match and, in a good mood, shared his impressions: «I am very glad that I am taking part in the competition.

I managed to try everything, took part in competitions, in the Asian Championship, I have the rank of CCM judo. For two years I have been doing Kazaksha kures. The rules are similar, but there are differences. And Kazakhsha Kures, in my opinion, is more complicated. I hope that I can win».
