Men take part in this battle with little or no clothes. In addition, the head is protected from the baton with a helmet-shaped home made armor. Women are not only affected through this fight, but the youth of the clan are also taught to protect the clan. In 1994, the government of Ethiopia had banned the dugout fight, but even today people here organize this fight.
