    Modern traditional wrestling is one of the oldest traditional sports in Gambia and wrestling festivals are a regular occurrence. Leg locks are sanctioned but there are no patterned arm or head locks, or complex points system. The object of the game is basically to lob one's opponent to the ground. The first wrestler down in the bout loses the contest.
    The bulk regular style of grappling is shown among the Mandinka, Fulas and Jolas. It involves each opponent seizing each other's trunks at the innovation of the bout. After numerous strategic manoeuvrings each one would offer to lob the other to the ground. Serers otherwise prefer to go straight for the lets and render their opponent off-balance.
