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, etc. We like all of them
as they are very fantastic sports. But today we are
going to tell you about a sport which we like the
most. Have you ever heard the game kabaddi?

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.

Each team has five substitute players. The game is
played for 20 minutes in each half. Between the two
halves both the teams take five minutes break to
change the sides.

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.

bring the raider in our court and grab the raider.
