History

Description

Current status

Csürközés is one of the most interesting examples of folk fighting games, and a very popular game in Hungary because it’s played for fun only and using just simple wooden canes. It’s part of the fencing family and it’s rooted in the bucolic culture. Nowadays it’s being taught in the physical education lessons in schools, but it’s known and practised all over the country by children and adults with small variations of the rules.
