History

Description

The Testa (or Riesy) is a fight originating in Eritrea. She is characterized by violent head shots, but her techniques also include kicking, punching, parrying and taking. The hands, feet and clinch grips are very complex and are only used to strike the opponent with the head or the front of the fist (metacarpal head). Biting the opponent in the groin or trachea is something that can also happen in some cases.
