Slaps, Kicks And Submission Holds

In the vast range of female fighting variations, I have found these Japanese bouts in a pro ring where the wrestlers start exchanging slaps and kicks (for real?). Later on, they move down to the mat and try to apply submission holds like arm triangles, ankle leg stretches and more. These ones looked real for me.

Pay attention to the skimpy swimsuits, the traditional Japanese camera point of view in women wrestling and the whimsical ring lighting. And what does the reference to the mythical Manticore monster in the banner mean?
