Take a deep breath and get in on the action

Don’t forget to chant. Stop or breathe and you’re out. For all the strange rules, some games have, not being allowed to inhale during a ‘raid’ may be one of the strangest. But then you really can’t argue with the ancient rules of an ancient game. It is even a part of Indian mythology. Kabaddi in India is quite popular in villages and matches tend to draw a crowd. When you read more about how it is played, you’ll see why this contact sport is regarded as a recreational form of combat training. It’s played by two teams of seven players each on a Kabaddi ground or arena. The ground is divided into halves and each team occupies one half. Players take turns in invading the opponent teams’ territory, tagging the players and getting back to their half. The trick is to manage this in one breath, while constantly chanting ‘kabaddi kabaddi’ and not running out of air while the opponent team tries to block your return to safety. The raider has a high chance of getting caught as he or she is outnumbered seven to one. But, at the same time the raider, if skilled or lucky enough, can also get the entire team out in one go. When you start understanding the nuances of the game, you realise how interesting it is. When you watch, it being played, you realise that it is a thrilling combination of wrestling, rugby and tag all rolled into one on a compact rectangular arena for a total of 40 minutes. India has always dominated the scene on a global stage, winning record gold medals in the Asian Games since the time the game was introduced in 1990. Very recently, our boys registered an extraordinary triumph against a powerful Iran team with an awe-inspiring showcase of strategy and skill in the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup final. The ladies aren’t far behind either. In September 2016, Indian women's kabaddi team won the glittering gold medal in Asian Beach Games, making everyone back home very proud. This makes us the real titans of Kabaddi, reigning over every World Cup, in both men and women’s tournament. Very few countries can boast of such a hold on any sport.

There are several locations around the city where kabaddi is played regularly. If you head to a suburb called Dadar, there are a few locations there marked out as a book kabaddi playground.

Pick your style and play your passion

There isn’t just one way to play kabaddi. India has four major forms called Amar, Sanjeevani, Huttuttoo, and Gaminee. Some of these forms have made their way across the globe. Amar is mostly played by Punjabi sportsmen and Huttuttoo by those from Maharashtra. Sanjeevani/ Suranjeevi is the most common form of the sport around the world. It’s where a player who has been tagged out can be revived if a player from the opponent’s team is declared out. The Gaminee style takes the difficulty level a notch higher as no player revival is allowed and unless all the players on one side are tagged out, the game can go on indefinitely until five or seven points are scored. Many regional forms of the game also exist in different parts of the country and each region has their own interesting twist to the game. This makes it more interesting and a truly national sport.
