Kabbadi is a sport like capture the flag and tackle rugby. You need to tag a defender and run back through the gate in the middle of the rectangular field to get a point. But the defenders are trying to tackle you to stop you from getting past the gate in time.

It developed 4000 years ago in India. In Sanskrit to English Kabaddi means holding hands. Its a contact sport because people try to tackle you after you tag them so that you can’t get past the gate. Originally you had to take a big breath and say “Kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi” until you ran out of breath. Now you have 30 seconds to run out tag someone and run back through the gate.

14 people or 2 teams of 7 are needed to play kabaddi 4 as defenders and 3 as raiders. The defenders need to tackle the raider from the other team after the raider tags one of them. The raider needs to tag a defender and get back through the gate within 30 seconds, but the defenders are trying to tackle you.

Kabbadi is a fun game that has got a world cup named after it.
