In what is modern day South Africa, men gather and wrestle in the tradition of a millennium old martial art called Nuba Wrestling. Some traditions claim there is  stick fighting component to Nuba Wrestling, most practitioners and historians consider it more of a sport that requires only slamming someone to the ground. No locks and holds, and no pinning.

Every Culture in the world has produced its own martial arts, Africa is the source of some of the earliest formalized one to one combat.
