    Way to detect bullshido in African MA?

    The Francophone Games For The Handicapped (BAFTA, I believe is the French acronym) offers "traditional African Wrestling" as one of their events.

    How do I get into contact with these people to see if they'll accept an Australian paralympian as a weightlifter and wrestler? How do I check if their "wrestling" is Bullshido or not? They don't even seem to have an E-Mail address!

    :rolleyes:
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

    :occasion1

    Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

    Apparently so. I THINK it may a modified form of Senegalese wrestling, but don't quote me.

      My point is, Osiris, that I need to check that ther African wrestling is a legitimate style. How do I do that?

          I think all of AMA are bullshido. You can't find out if it's legitimate or not. There's an ancient wrestling form in any culture, but mostly it's some ritualistic game that has either not evolved or disappeared all together.
          There's very little historic memory on what went on before colonization in most African countries.
          I couldn't swear on Senegal, as I know little about that particular country, but my take is that African Wrestling is bullshido.

              You are right. I do know a little about 1 country of Africa being half Ivorian, but this makes me hardly an expert on anything regarding the Ivory Coast, much less the all of Africa. (shaking head at self).

              I second your last paragraph.
