Kabaddi- India's Very Own Sport!



Kabaddi is a popular sport in South Asia.


There are four major forms of kabaddi played in India which are recognised by the amateur federation.

1. In Sanjeevani Kabaddi, one player is revived against one player of the opposite team who is out – one out. The game is played over 40 minutes with a five-minute break between halves. There are seven players on each side and the team that outs all the players on the opponent's side scores four extra points.

2. In Gaminee style, seven players play on either side and a player put out has to remain out until all his team members are out. The team that is successful in ousting all the players of the opponent's side secures a point. The game continues until five or seven such points are secured and has no fixed time duration.

3. Amar style resembles the Sanjeevani form in the time frame rule. But, a player who is declared out doesn’t leave the court, but instead stays inside, and the play goes along. For every player of the opposition touched ‘out,’ a team earns a point. 

4. Punjabi Kabaddi is a variation that is played on a circular pitch of a diameter of 22 metres
