DAMBE

Dambe is an ancient form of boxing native to the Hausa people of Northern Nigeria.

The primary weapon in Dambe is the fist of a warriors’ dominant hand, which is wrapped in rope and used for landing punches. The other hand is used for blocking and measuring distance. Competitors can also use their legs for kicking and sweeping.

Historically, Dambe was a means of preparing for war and this legacy lives on today. The lead hand is referred to as ‘the spear’ and the unwrapped hand is called the shield. A knockdown or knockout is called a ‘kill’.
