Kabaddi is a popular contact sport in South Asia, mainly in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal, kabaddi has its roots in ancient India. Two teams of seven players each compete in order to win points by raiding the other team’s half of the court and making as many touches as they can without being caught or tackled.

In order to return to their own half without being tackled or captured by defenders, the raider must touch one or more players on the other team.
