    Kabaddi is a game prominantly played in India. It involves two teams and each team will be given a specific and equal amount of time. One member has to go from a team to the other team's court and has to catch the opponents and has to return back to his court. The opponent who was caught was out and has to leave the court. For doing so, he will get one point for each member.The team with highest points at the end of the time wins.

    If some members were out from opponent team them the same number of members who were out previously in our team can again join in our team.

    Kabaddi is a very old and traditional game of India. It is very healthy game. There are two teams in this game. One player of a team is going to the court of other team and he will have to touch more than one player of the other team and he must say the word "kabaddi" at the entire time. If he does not touch anyone and the player of other team can caught him and never let him to go to his court or touch the line that is placed between the both courts.

    Kabaddi is an traditional auspicious game of Tamil nadu. The person those who are involved in this game must have strong and healthy body. Because, The person in one team will go to the opponent team boundary and touch as many as persons then come back again to the their team boundary.

    Here, the touched persons in the opponent team would be out. Suppose if the going person to the opponent team is caught and stopped by the opponent team then he will be out. Each time one person will go to touch the persons in opponent team. The selection of the person to go in each team will be decided by the captain of the team.

    There may be a chance for make out a group of persons at the same time in this game is possible if the going person have ability and strong. The aim of the going person in this game is to touch the common boundary line. if he touches the common line then he is safe.

    There may be seven members in each team for kabaddi. If one person goes out in opponent team then one person may come inside in the another team. It is more interesting and healthy game for men in Tamil nadu.

    Hello Friends,
    I would say that Kabbadi is one of the wonderful games that has been practiced in south India for a vast number of years and it is one of the national sport which recently became worldwide. There are various countries that are participating in the Kabaddi Tournament every year. Before some 5 or 10 years the sport was unknown for most of them but it was practiced in almost all the villages in the south India where lot of importance was given to the fitness and health of the people especially men. There were other games too like Bull fight which also focused on fitness of men.

    Various forms of Kabaddi within the state
    I would say that their are lot of kabaddi tournaments that are conducted in various levels like College level, Schools level, University level, district level, state level competitions and their is always a huge competition prevailing in the people for this sports.

    International level Kabaddi Tournaments
    I would say that there are only two or three international level tournaments that were conducted till now and both the time our team was more successful in beating the opponent team by a huge margin.

    Rules in Kabaddi
    There are only two teams and each consist of seven players with 3 substitutes and hence a team of 10 members should make a kabaddi team. Both the team should secure most number of points against the opposition to get the points and win the game. Only one person out of the seven in the team will go for a ride against the other team and he should catch the maximum number of members in the opponent team and should return back to their area. In case the person is not able to catch a person there would be a line drawn inside the opponent teams area and we have to touch that and return back.
    It is based on the time period and as long as the time finishes, the team would compete against each other or till the other team accepts its defeat.

    How can be get more points
    I would say that the members are given out if the member does any thing out of the few as stated below
    1. If a person leaves his breath and stops saying the word Kabaddi.
    2. If the person is caught by the person of the other team when he goes for a ride
    3. If the person touches the people on the other team when he is riding into the opposition team
    4. if the person goes out of the line that is drawn for both the teams.
    These are the various methods to get points.

    Disqualification of the team
    The team can be disqualified if the team involves in any one of the below things
    1. If the team raises the voice against the referee or uses some bad or abusive words
    2. If a person hits the opponent team member knowingly.

    With Regards,

    Kabbadi is our national game, but the best thing about this game is that it don't have too much complication. It is very healthy game, but if played roughly can harm the players alot.

    The best know rule is that the opponent who have entered the area of other group, have to keep on saying Kabbadi and if he loses his breath and still is in other's group territory, than he is declared out. Then ultimately the team loses one of its player.

    The famous Indian kabaddi. It may not be the National game of India but it is a National level game. In this game there are two teams who will participate and there are 7 members each and the pitch is divided into two equal halves and each time a member from a team goes into the opposite team's section saying some particular words especially 'Kabaddi,kabaddi...... and so on and tries to touch a member from opposite team and reach the division line between the teams without getting himself caught. If he does so then his team will win a point otherwise if the opposite team catches him then they will win a point. At the end of the play the team with majority points will win the game.
