Hey friends. We hope you all play sports. We all
are huge fans of sports. If some day we don’t
get to play sports we think it is very unfair or
all our fun has gone. Well there are many
sports in India like malkhamb, kho kho, lagori,

fantastic sports. But today we are going to tell
you about a sport which we like the most.

Kabaddi is a fun game to play. When you play
it you will come to know how fun it is!!! And
you will always play it. But this is a different
sport from others and the good news is you
do not have to use any ball or something. The
main thing you need to concentrate on, your
eyes, legs, hands and mouth.

Kabaddi is one of the popular game among the
people of Asia. It is an Indian game but the
reality is that no one really knows about the
origin of this game. Some historians believe
that it is about 4,000 years old game. This
game involves skill and power of two teams
and combines the characteristics of wrestling.

The side which wins the toss sends a 'raider',
who enters the opponents' half of the court
chanting, Kabaddi-Kabaddi. The raider's aim is
to touch any players on the opposing side, and
return to his court in one breath. The person,
whom the raider touches, will then be out.

The aim of the opposing team, will be to
hold the raider, and stop him from
returning to his own court, until he takes
another breath. If the raider cannot return
to his court in the same breath he is out.

• Each team alternates in sending a player into
the opponents' court. If a player goes out of
the boundary line during the course of the
play, or if any part of his body touches the
ground outside the boundary, he will be out,
except during a struggle.
