Egyptian Stick Fencing/Tahtib تحطيب
The fullname in Arabic is
"Fann el Nazaha Wal Tahtib"which means
"the Art (Fann) of Uprightness & Honesty (Nazaha) through the use of stick".
It relies primarily on the use of a wooden stick for striking, defensive or dodging techniques.

The origins of Tahtib seem to go back to the 2nd millenium BC,some of Tahtib gestures are engraved in the walls of three tombs among the 39 rock-cut tombs of the archaeological site of Beni Hasan,[citation needed] in the eastern bank of the Nile, near the city of Minya. The necropolis comprises tombs of officials (nomarchs) of the XI and XII dynasties of ancient Egypt.

Ancient Egyptians performed stick fencing or stick fighting as a form of entertainment.This type of fencing was probably based on actual fighting systems used in combat with a shield and a sword- which then evolved into a system with its own rules and methods. The fighting stick does not appear to have been used as a, rather it was used primarily as a training tool and/or for sport.There were advantages of teaching stick fighting, along with other combat sports such as a wrestling, the main advantage being that the Egyptian army could be kept trained and ready for war. In many respects it resembles the sport of single stick.

The stick itself is about four feet in length and is called an Asa, Asaya or Assaya, or Nabboot. It is often flailed in large figure-8 patterns across the body with such speed and violence that the displacement of air is loudly discernible. There is another form practiced from horseback known as “Horse Stepping” which uses a stick that is nearly 12 feet (3.7 m) long
