    Product Description

    This authentic traditional wooden throwing club is made in Kenya.  There are two types of Rungu.  The ceremonial and the throwing.  These are the throwing Rungu.  The throwing Rungu were featured on Survivor Africa.  They are approximately 18″ long with a 2-3″ knob and most often made of mahogany.

    In Maasai culture, the rungu is important to young males. The video below was NOT filmed by Expanding Opportunities but demonstrates Rungu throwing.

    The ceremonial Rungu  is important in tribal gatherings, it designates the positioned persons and can act as a “talking stick”.  Often the ceremonial Rungu are carved or beaded.
