    Zhamba atu  - festive competitions of Kazakh soldiers in the accuracy of shooting . Similar tournaments with slightly different rules and names are also known in other Turkic-speaking peoples: Kyrgyz "zhamby atysh" or "jamba atmai", Uzbek "altyn kabak", Tajik "tavern". Perhaps, the steppe neighbors borrowed the tournament in the Caucasus as well - Georgian and Armenian "Kabahs" . The Japanese "jabusame" is also consonant with the Turkic variants.

    In all these competitions, despite the differences that have arisen over time, one can see a key similarity: a valuable prize (a jamba is a commercial ingot of silver weighing 1.88 kg) was installed at a certain height; participant, knocked down from a certain distance and position the prize took him to himself. For the safety of the prize to get it was necessary not to enter it, but into its mount (vein, strap, string, pole), or use a blunted weapon.
    Under certain conditions (size of the target, distance, speed, number of attempts), the victory of the rider in the jambs atu is an outstanding achievement - only an excellent warrior and a born leader are able to break a thin suspension and shoot a prize worth several sheep. The winner became a hero. In epic legends about heroes (for example, about Manas, about Koblandy) among other feats their participation and a victory in zamby atu are described.
