BarcelonaFortunately, no one has died practicing it for quite some time throne. But if it happens, the cycle of revenge begins. In fact, it is difficult to define, the throne. For some it is a martial art, a sport. Others consider it a dance. There is no doubt that it is an Egyptian cultural expression deeply rooted in the territory of the Upper Egypt area, that is to say, in the south of the country. The idea is to fight with two very long sticks. Two sticks with which you must try to hit your opponent’s head. In the past, the beatings could be so violent that occasionally someone lost their life. And if it did happen, there is an unwritten law that says the family of the deceased can take justice on their own and take revenge on whoever took the life of their loved one. In the past, a bout of throne could start a cycle of revenge with a few deaths.
