The runner tries to tag the other team’s players without taking another breath. The runner has to keep saying “kabaddi-kabaddi” so he/she can’t take another breath. 3. The other players try not to get tagged. Those who get tagged try to catch the runner before he/she runs back to his/her side. 4. If the runner does not make it back to his/her side without taking a breath, the runner is out. If the runner doesmakes it back without taking a breath, then the players who got tagged are out. 5. Teams take turns sending runners. The team with the most players left wins. ARISE TRAINING & RESEARCH CENTER
