General Information Nuba fighting is Sudanese fighting arts that mainly consist of grappling and stick-fighting techniques. Competitions are held and participated by men in the neighbourhood who wish to “bring honour to their village” they represent (Crudelli 2010: 292). The matches are organised after a harvest, for the sake of giving thanks. Nuba fighting, part of festive events, involves “music, dance, feasts, and stories about former champions” (Enacademic, n.d.).
