Indonesian Traditions | Peresean - Lombok

Who doesn’t know Lombok? One of the cities in Indonesia that is in the tourists' heart interest when coming to Indonesia.

One of the uniqueness you would find in Lombok is their traditions, one of them is “Peresean”.

“Peresean” is a tradition of fighting between two men from the Sasak tribe in Lombok. They use a rattan stick like a sword, and a shield made of buffalo skin called ende.

Fighters are only allowed to attack the opponent’s back and shoulders. As a companion, traditional musical instruments are played, such as gongs, drums and flutes. Injured pepadu will be treated with traditional medicine in the form of oil that does not cause pain when applied to the wound.
