The game Kabaddi was invented 4000 years ago in early India. The name Kabaddi is from the word Kar-badhi which means “holding hands” That’s where they got the name because you hold hands when you are defending. There are different kinds of Kabaddi - Sanjeevani, Gaminee and Amar.If you didn’t know, the game is still played today. There competitions all over the world that lots of countries compete in. A few are Asia Kabaddi Cup, UK Kabaddi Cup and Kabaddi World Cup

It is played by 7 players on each team, there are 4 defenders, 1 raider and the rest just rotate around. The purpose of the game is to get as many points as you can. The defenders have to stay inside the rectangle and stay linked together and the raider has to go through the gateway. Their main purpose is for the raider to go through the gateway and there, they have 30 seconds to tag a defender on the other team then the defender that has been tug has to try and tackle the raider to the ground and hold them down till the 30 seconds is up. The raider and still try and get up and get their whole body through the gateway. You only need cones for the outline and a markway for the gateway. Whoever has the most points at the end wins. You can earn points by the raider getting back to their own team or if the defender holds the raider down.
Kabaddi is a really interesting name and its really unique  just like the game. So yeah the game is pretty simple aye, but its really fun to play. It seems to be popular all around the world, you should probably play it sometime.
