Bastinado

(also: bastinade); originally a corporal punishment; it is beaten with percussion instruments on the bare soles of the feet. Bastonade or falaka is the term used to describe the sole stroke, i.e. the blow to the bare sole of the foot. Depending on the purpose of the blows, the bastonade was used for torture or corporal punishment and was executed with the appropriate hardness. The term bastonade originated in the Romance languages and meant as much as a stick blow or beating. The term falaka describes the same practice, but comes from the Arab world. Bastinado, booting, foot whipping or sole caning are also used in New German.

Bastonade is a hard punishment, usually with a cane. The cane is beaten on the soles of the feet of the person to be punished, whereby at least the feet are fixed and bound to prevent evasion.

Canes, canes, whips or straps serve as instruments of punishment.

The blows to the soles of the feet are extremely painful and last for a long time. If used strictly, the punished person can often only walk for a limited time. The cane blows to the bare soles of the feet are still an applied form of punishment for "criminals and sinners" in some countries of the world today.
