Kabaddi are from Tamil Nadu, an Indian state. This is the oldest sport in the history of India. There are traces of Kabaddi at about 4000 years ago. This activity was firstly developed as a technique of self-defence.

This team sport is a mix between wrestling and rugby.

There are many federation of kabaddi like the KFI (the Kabaddi Federation of India) which has compiled a standard set of rules in 1950.

        Kabaddi has been recognized as a international sport in 1982 during the 9th Asian Games in New-Delhi. Since that, this sport has been included in many competitions and some federations of kabaddi has been created. The most popular kabaddi championship is “The World Kabaddi Championship”

        There are plenty of variation of this game. Amara, Gemini and Sanjeevin are the most important variations of the sport but the federation has harmonized this. They had adopted the Sanjeevin with some modifications.

        Kabaddi could be played in two different types of field. You could play kabaddi on a circular field which is a circle of earth without grass to not slip or on a rectangular field made of carpet. The rectangular field is as big as an handball field.

        Kabaddi oppose two teams of 12 players. 7 players are on the field and at the same time the 5 other are substitutes.

A match lasts 2 x 20 minutes for men and 2 x 15 minutes for women, with each for 5 minutes of half-time.

Each team in turn passes an attack by sending a "raider" to the opposing team, which during the entire duration of its assault, must say Kabaddi continuously.

The Raider's mission is to touch one or more opponents and return to his camp without being immobilized before. So the mission of the defenders is not to get hit and to tackle the raider in his camp so that he can not come back. A raider who does not return to his camp is out and will be able to come into play only when an other raider of his team will in turn eliminate an opposing player.

If the raider arrives to touch his camp then all the defenders who touched him (including during the plating) are out. Every person out is a point for a team. On the other hand, it is possible to score bonuses if the raider touches an opponent beyond a line near the bottom line and comes back to his camp.

At the end of the regulation time, the total points are carried out. The team with the most points is the winner.

In the version with the circular field, the raider has to run to four opponents in order to beat a single before running on his side of the field to gain a point. If an opponent beats the raider the point goes to his team. We play in turn, and the first round is worth a point and a half to avoid the possibility of a draw.

This game requires speed, tactics, reactivity and reflexes to respond to the movements of opponents, but also force to plate and resist tackles.

The matches are organized according to the age and weight of the players.

There are six people overseeing the game: three referees, one person who take care of the points, and two assistants to that person.
