Zulu Culture
 Stick
 Fighting

Disputes between men are settled publicly in this way, often at other ceremonies. A referee supervises the duel and there are strict rules.

The weapons are a carved club held in the right hand and a small shield and small stick held in the left to ward off blows. Eye contact is maintained, tempers are held in check and stabbing is forbidden. Blows are aimed at the head and knees.

As soon as blood flows, the duel is over and the winner tends the loser and the bad blood is forgotten. If an opponent is killed, there is no charge as long as the rules were observed.

Young boys as taught to stick fight from an early age using branches. They are given adult fighting sticks at the age of 15.
