  2. 2. Kabaddi © Copyright Millennium National School 2010  Kabaddi is a very old traditional Indian game which was originally meant to train soldiers to develop self-defense and reflexes for counter attacks by individuals or groups.  The name Kabaddi –chanted continuously during the play – is derived from a Punjabi word which means “Holding the Breath”.  The game combines the characteristics of both wrestling and rugby.  Recent evidence suggests that the game is almost 4000 years old.  It requires both good agility and power, along with very good breath control to play this game. Introduction
  3. 3. Kabaddi © Copyright Millennium National School 2010 How to play it?  In Kabaddi, two teams compete with each other for higher scores, by touching or capturing the players of the opponent team.  Each team consists of 12 players, of which 7 are on court at a time, and 5 in reserve.  The game consists of two 20-minute halves, with a break of five minutes for change of sides.  The team on the offense sends a 'raider‘ into the opponents court, chanting 'kabaddi-kabaddi'. The raider's aim is to touch any or all 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 while chanting 'kabaddi', he will be declared out.
