Kabaddi – playing Indian-style buzzing

Kabaddi‘s roots stem from the folk games of the people of Central India. Each team will have from 4 to 7 athletes (athletes) officially (with 2 to 5 reserve athletes). The game field is rectangular, 11 x 9m in size. The time of the match is 2 rounds, every 20 minutes and 5 minutes of breaks. Playgrounds and team members have reduced in size and number of athletes when Kabaddi organized outdoors or on the beach compared to the form of indoor competition.

Winning points are counted when the attacking team player hits the opponent. On the other hand, the attacking team will score points when shooting the opponent (when they attack) right on their own field, not letting them escape the area to touch the line at the center of the field (or exit the designated area). Attackers often shout “Kabaddi, Kabaddi!” If after 30 seconds the attacking team does not hit the opponent, the attacker will get that score. The roles of the two teams will alternate after each winning point.

With such a competition law, the adversary to touch the opponent and find the way to return without being arrested requires beyond the outstanding strength, there must be mischief in handling situations, creating Unexpected and clever to not fall into the enemy’s restraint. On the other hand, defensive methods are coordinated pieces that encircle, block the way back, or raise a trap to “lure” the opponent’s attacking player to net.
