in memory of NAKHABUKA

Member Organization(s)

Nakbabuka Martial Arts Association


NAKBABUKA is a traditional martial art of a community called Banyala from the Luyia tribe, the western part of Kenya.


This traditional martial art is performed in memory of a mythical beautiful lady called NAKHABUKA. Men wrestled with each other as women cheer them with songs and praise with drums and other instruments.

The winner could take a girl because for a young man to marry a girl in this community, he must wrestle and win against his rival as girls always prefer being married by a strong man for protection.


Advised by Kennedy Ojwando, president of the Nakbabuka Martial Arts Association.
