EQUIPMENT NEEDED:two teams of seven players (wearing socks and shorts) occupy opposite halves of a field of 12.5m x 10m (roughly half the size of a basketball court)[color=yellow][color=black]Each team has to have five additional players that are held in [color:306d=black:306d]reser[color:306d=black:306d]ve.

[color=purple][color=black]THE TYPE OF [color:306d=black:306d]SUITABLE CLOTHING:socks,[color:306d=black:306d]shorts,shirts


Struggle with an opposing team member.The game is organized into two 20-minute halves, with a five-minute half-time break during which the teams switch sides.The teams take turns sending a "raider" across to the opposite team's half, where the goal is to tag or wrestle ("capture") members of the opposite team before returning to the home half. Tagged members are "out" and are sent off the field. The raider must not take a breath during the raid, and must prove it by constantly chanting (called 'cant' or 'dak') during the raid.The chant-word is kabaddi in India and Pakistan, হাডুডু hađuđu in Bangladesh, do-do in Nepal, guddu in Sri Lanka[color=black] chado-guddo[color:306d=black:306d] in MalaysiaZoo in Iran, and techib in Indonesia[color=black].Meanwhile, the defenders must form a chain, for example by linking hands; if [color:306d=black:306d]the chain is broken, a member of the defending team is sent off.The goal of the defenders is to stop the raider from returning to the home side before taking a breath. If the raider takes a breath before returning to the home side, the raider is out and is sent off the field.

Each time a player is out the opposing team earns a point. A team scores a bonus of two points, called a lona, if the entire opposing team is declared out. At the end of the game, the team with the most points wins.

[color=darkorchid]THE SKILLS NEEDED:Matches are staged on the basis of age and weight.The players need to be good at "holding their breath" and at dodging and running.

HISTORY OF THIS SPORT:While many maintain that Kabaddi has its origins in the game of Kubb,there is a popular belief that Kabaddi originated in the Indian state of Punjaband some others believe it to be originated in the state of Tamil Nadu and is called as sadugudu in tamil.
Kabaddi was introduced and popularised in Japan in the year 1979. The Asian Amateur Kabaddi Federation sent Prof. Sundar Ram of India to extensively tour Japan for about 2 months to introduce the game.
The game was included for the first time in Asian Games held in Beijing in1990.Eight countries took part including India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh. India won the gold medal and has since won gold at the following three Asian Games in Hiroshima[color=royalblue] in 1994,Bangkok in 1998] and Busan in 2002.
