    Greetings members,



    My name is Khamesse co-founder of Mukhanda International African martial arts researchers. We are currently working on a DVD documentary on Musangwe an African martial art practised by the Venda tribe South Africa, which consists of punches, knees, elbows and head-butts dating back many centuries in Africa long before the first Europeans arrived.
    It will be available April 2008.Musangwa is still practised today in South Africa in Venda land, see link below:

    Our 2nd DVD will be on Kwambo a footfighting system of the Hausa tribe of Nigeria similar to Capoeira.

    If anyone is interested in being notified when these DVD's are available please e-mail mashera76@yahoo.com.

    All questions and queries are welcome on Musangwe and African martial arts in general..
    Thankyou

    Khamesse,

    that sounds like an interesting DVD, but spam posts are likely to get booted from this forum. If that happens and you'd still like to answer questions about traditional African martial arts, you will probably get some lively discussion going here.

    Something tells me that even if interest were to be spurred, you would find noting more than brawling, not a comprehensive fighting sysytem.

    Observe:

    Hard call; there are plenty of little-known combat sports coming out of Africa these days, including various forms of (kick)boxing, wrestling and stick fighting. I've seen a bit of Musangwe fighting on YouTube, and it's tough stuff; bare-knuckle punches, headbutts and knees. The African styles that I'm aware of are systematized, but not always in the same way that Asian or Euro-American styles are.

    Greetings forum members,

    For those who want to know more about African martial arts please see below.We are also here to offer information and generate a lively debate on African martial arts not just to sell something, so all questions welcome.

    Kwambo footboxing

    Kwambo is a foot fighting system practiced by the Hausa tribe of Nigeria similar to Capoeira. Like Capoeira itís practiced in a circle with drumming and African music but itís more combative since itís full contact, and fighters have been known to suffer broken legs and ribs. The Hausa refer to this as drumming of the feet, since fighting is accompanied by drum beats and music. Kwambo is not the only Foot fighting system similar to Capoeira found in Africa.The following are similar foot fighting systems still found in Africa today, that have existed centuries before Capoeira.

    1óNzango from the Congo

    2óNgolo from Angola direct ancestor of Capoeira

    3óNtia from modern Ghana practiced by the Ga tribe kicks similar to kickboxing since
    the human body can only move differently in so many ways.Ntia is actually is subart
    of Asafo Atwele traditional fist fighting of the Ga tribe.

    Musangwe techniques breakdown

    Musangwe is the name of the venue where Mavili fist fighting takes place, but is now the term for the actual fighting system. Musangwe is practiced in a circle with spectators clapping in rhythm, and in ancient times a drum was played prior to combat.One raises a fist in the air and shakes it in front of the opponent to challege him, if he accepts the challenge he replies in a similar manner and the fight begins. Combat is bare knuckles with punches, knees, elbows and headbutts; elbows and headbutts are only used in close quarters. In ancient times combat grappling was also popular called Tsimbe, but now rarely practiced since only a few elders remain who still know it.

    Elbows-Lukudavaha
    -Used in combination with a backfist, it's a fowl just to use the elbow by itself.In combat one strikes with the reverse elbow followed by a backfist, in one move, therefore miss with the elbow strike with the backfist.

    Headbutt-Thoho--pronounced foho
    -Used in close quarters, one grabs the opponents neck and headbutts.

    Knees-Gone--prounced go-oh-nay
    -Used in close quarters, you grab the opponents neck bring the head down while kneeing the face, or flying knee to mid section.

    Straight punches-Mitzoko/Mithavehela or also known as Mukhavehel
    -Straight punches withe 2nd finger next to the thumb pointed, and the point is used to damage the opponent.

    Wild punches-Mahopu-hopu
    -Puches from all sorts of angles very effective in combination with knees and elbows.

    Swinging downwards punches-Mubokaliko
    -Swinging punches from above going down, similar to swiming motion with the arms.

    Evading-Upila
    -Simply moving the head back and out of the way of punches, while body is stationary.Some evasions resemble western boxing, human body can only move differently so many ways, but Ndevane stated these are purely AFRICAN.

    Ubekisa/Uvika
    --This is the Musangwe equivalent of shadow boxing or katas as in Karate; basically a fighter will go through punches, knees, elbows and headbutts against thin air as part
    of training, to learn new techniques and demonstrate advanced combinations.

    Tsimbe-Traditional Venda grappling system, still practised by herd boys though not widely known.

    All questions welcome.
