South Africa's ancient art of stick fighting

The art of stick fighting, or Intonga, has been practiced in South Africa for centuries.

However, in the big cities it is struggling to find participants as people are lured away by football and cricket.

In the township of Crossroads, just outside Cape Town, Vuyisile Dyolotana is trying to pass on his skills and train the next generation of fighters in this important sporting and cultural pastime.
