    Zulu stick fighting

    Anyone catch the last man standing BBC documentary on Zulu stick fighting.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCAgEHqZGpI

    The fights were full contact with no protective kit. Alot of the fighters involved in the final fight at a Zulu wedding had there skulls cracked one of these was a fighter who had fell to the floor and was trying to get up when he got hit. The guys involved really have a appreciation of the realities of stick fighting. I wonder how many western martial artists go to this level?

    I actually thought they were a bit ****.
    (i mean four of the western guys won their fights with only a few days training)

    Most guys with some full contact escrima training would do very well in this 'competition'.

    um, guess it is gone again. Says the video is unavailable and the only thing that I see that comes up under under Zulu stick fight are actually 3 friends of mine that are fighters, but do stage combat. Can you post another link?

    The previous episode featured amazon tribal wrestling - none of the westerners managed a victory. The best one training draw (tie).

    There was a few odd rules in the tribal wrestling. The one that got the westerners was that once they got hold of your leg the fight ended with you the looser.
