History Of Kabbadi
Kabaddi is basically a combative sport, with seven players on each side; played for a period of 40 minutes
with a 5 minutes break (20-5-20). The core idea of the game is to score points by raiding into the opponent’s
court and touching as many defense players as possible without getting caught on a single breath.
One player, chanting Kabaddi!!! Kabaddi!!!! Kabaddi!!!! Charges into the opponent court and try to touch
the opponent closest to him, while the seven opponents make maneuvers to catch the attacker. This is
Kabaddi, the match of one against seven, known as the game of struggle.
