    When I saw it on that Last Man Standing program, I'm pretty sure there was no punching.. perhaps they took it out for the ***** English TV

    According to wiki:

    Since the 1950s, a number of West African traditions have been assimilated into Lutte Traditionnelle as it has become a major spectator sport and cultural event. The major variation has become Laamb, or Senegalese Wrestling, which allows punching (frappe), the only of the West African traditions to do so. As a larger confederation and championship around Lutte Traditionnelle have developed since the 1990s, Senegalese fighters now practice both forms, called officially Lutte Traditionnelle sans frappe (for the international version) and Lutte Traditionnelle avec frappe for the striking version

    So basically they had the last man standing guys do the "safe for Europe" version.

    looks like victory by some kind of ippon (or just getting the guy to his back) with bareknuckle boxing allowed?

    That's more or less what I got out of the YouTube vid. I'm not sure what the slo-mo slapping thing is about. I mean if you're that close, you could be setting up strikes. I dunno, but interesting from a cultural point of view.

    I was under the impression that Lutta Senegalese only allowed slapping, not punching; does someone want to clear this up for me?
