Abstract Nach der täglichen Arbeit tanzen die Männer auf dem Dorfplatz und üben sich dort paarweise im Ringkampf. Zur Eröffnung umkreisen sie einander in gebückter Haltung, dann werfen sie sich auf die Knie nieder, ergreifen gegenseitig die rechte Hand und versuchen, den Gegner mit der anderen Hand zu umfassen und umzustoßen.
After day's work the men dance on the village square and practise wrestling two by two. The contenders first circle each other with a slouching attitude, then they go down on their knees and holding each other by the right hand each tries to clasp his left hand round his opponent's back and to push him down. The aim of the fight is to throw the opponent on the back to the ground. Only at contests between different tribes however the fights are fought to a finish, practice fights are usually stopped as soon as the superiority of one wrestler is evident.
