Iintonga Rules - 2013

Two fighters (combatants) take up position inside the ring. Each fighter carries two sticks, namely the attack and the defence stick. The referee blows a whistle to start the game and the fighters try to hit their opponent with their stick, while defending themselves with the defence stick. Three judges judge the match and record points scored by each combatant. They also record deductible points where there are infringements of the rules. Points are awarded according to the number of blows that hit the opponent’s body. A referee controls the match and a timekeeper controls the rounds in each bout. A bout consists of three rounds of one minute each.
