The Basic Movements of Egyptian Stick Fighting (Tahtib)

The complete Arabic name of Tahtib is Fann Al Nazaha Wal Tahtib which means the Art (Fann) of integrity (Nazaha) through the use of stick. The term Tahtib derives from Hat-tab which means Woodcutter ; Hat-tab refers to the doer while Tahtib refers to the Art or the Way similar to the use of Karate rather than Karate-Do or Aiki rather than Aikido.

The origins of Tahtib seem to go back to the 2nd millennium 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.

Modern Tahtib ABOUSIR FORMS - N°1 TA’ASSIL

The Abousir – TA’ASSIL (rooting) form involves two jousters. It is a codified stage played as a preliminary to a free jousting.
The form is inspired by the 5000 years old instructor’s indications to his trainee “MOVE ATTACK FROM THE REAR” “ لف العصا واهجم من الخلف “.

So, as described in the video, start by swinging your stick from the back and practice Power & Control by stopping the full speed stick just before hitting the opponent’s stick. This stage forces the jouster to both: deep rooting when throwing the stick, full body alignment and stretch for control. Breath all along, hold the stick with no stiffness in your hand.
Engage the next movement holding the stick with both hands, with the space of one hand between the two hands (attack position). To feel your body strongly rooted and engaged in the strike, you could practice this stage with strong hits just above your hands. Power comes from your hips swinging; your stick is consequence of your body movement. When in the back, hold your stick relax while the stick is also protecting your neck, and then throw it with full hips and exhaling power.
Move on the right side with RASSHA gesture, circular attack followed by circular defense: four times. Reverse the body direction and the stick. Move frontward and change your stick technique from a frontward attack (Amameyya) to a backward attack (khafeyya): four times.
Execute the outward body spin, and shift from khalfeyya attack to Amameyya. See the slow motion stage.
Execute a frontward spin during your rassha attack, then draw back with another spin immediately followed by a threatening low attack in the legs (three times) to end with a strong frontward double attack, from the left side, then form the right side.

Both jousters’ are in a backward defense (khalfeyya) stance. They move on the circle in four steps, and then they reverse their direction and the holding hand. To close this codified preliminary jousting, both jousters withdraw into opposite directions in a backward defense (khalfeyya).

Jousters enter then in the FREE JOUSTING stage, immediately after this codified stage.

For techniques and forms, refer to the MODERN TAHTIB BOOK, available on AMAZON and at BUDO EDITIONS,

African Sword and Shield (Tahtib Flow Drill)

A demonstration of fa flow drill that comes from Tahteeb/Tahtib (Southern Egyptian stick fighting). The flow begins with an exchange of attack and defense using the hanging parry to negate the forearm diagonal slash. From there we explore the many options of counterattacking while maintaining a seamless flow... At times :) Enjoy!

Modern Tahtib ABOUSIR FORMS - N°2 TARKIZ

The Abousir – TARKIZ (centering) form involves two jousters. It is a codified stage played as a preliminary to a free jousting.
The form is inspired by the 5000 years old instructor’s indications to his trainee “ALIGN YOUR BODY LIKE THIS” “ ادرك جنبك الايسر هكذا “.

As described in the video, start by executing four MOSSOLFA, alternate attack-defense frontward and backward (amameya and khalfeyya) on static position. Ensure body moving frontward-backward on the right stance.
Do the same by moving in four large steps on the right side.
Then do the same by moving on the left side, again in four large steps.
End the Mossolofa practice with a body spin at the end of each attack. During the spin, protect your head with the stick positioned against your cervical. Leverage on the spin for a stronger attack.
Develop your body capabilities in sliding, drifting, spinning … and balancing all along frontward and backward.
Shift to Rassha.
The white shirt jouster A executes a large rassha beyond his opponent with a 360° spin followed by an attack, then the black shirt does a large rassha beyond his opponent with an immediate 180° return with a strong attack.
Both jousters are now in backward attack-defense. The A jouster executes a frontward inward reverse followed by a right side attack in rassha stopped by the opponent, both in upper defense, khalfeyya.

To close this codified preliminary jousting, both jousters withdraw into opposite directions in a backward defense (khalfeyya).

Jousters enter then in the FREE JOUSTING stage, immediately after this codified stage.

For techniques and forms, refer to the MODERN TAHTIB BOOK, available on AMAZON and at BUDO EDITIONS,
