Interesting The JO from Canary Islands
 
www.palocanario.com

Canary stick game is a very ancient art of the Canary Islands' popular culture. A fight with 2 sticks with more than 400 years of history. From the first aborigines, through lots of generations of shepherds and pheasants who inhabited these islands, this art has remained the same in the nucleus of various family clans.

Acosta family members inherited this practice from their ancestors, who already used the stick on the year 1800. Since then, they have become pioneers of this characteristic style: the ‘Acosta de Tenerife' traditional short stick style, considered as one of the quickest and hardest styles.

If you like weapon-fight arts, now you have the opportunity to travel in time and get a closer look of this discipline which surely will surprise you.

Interesting....

I was last April on Gran Canaria and heard that horroble legend of muss-suicide of last local aborigines and was under impression that no locals (or almost no) were left on all islands.

I think if this thing is real it probably came from Spain...


just my 2c
