A physical game originating in India/Pakistan. It is played between two teams, where player of one side tries to tag the player(s) of opposite team, while saying Kabaddi Kabaddi or Kaudi Kaudi and keeping his/her breath alive and then gets back to his/her own side once he/she tags. While the defending team which is being tagged will try to take down the player who is saying Kabaddi Kabaddi until his breath runs out.
Two main forms of the game are:
1. Circle Kabbadi.
2. Rectangle Kabbadi.
I will not say Kabaddi is almost as physical as American football but it comes close.
