VERY Early Contact Skydives Can't Post

In 1962-'63, as near 20-year olds, Tommy Foster n me'd exit off the strut holding hands and then wrestle for the rest of the 30' freefall. He who "won" was determined by whoever was on top at break-off. Tommy used mostly headlocks which made the winner a toss-up. So to speak. Quick like I discovered that a scissor leg-lock around his waist with my arms held out to catch the wind was a winner.

Now that sounds like a wild time. This may be a whole new discipline that nobody has ever thought up....
