Kabaddi is a popular game among the people of Asia, especially in the villages of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Japan. Some people believe it is an Indian game but no one knows the origin of this game. Some historians believe that it is nearly a 4,000 year old game. Kabbadi involves skills and powers of two teams and combines the characteristics of wrestling and rugby. It was originally meant to develop self defense, in addition to responses to attack, and reflexes of counter attack by individuals, and by groups or teams. It is a rather simple and inexpensive game, and neither requires a massive playing area, nor any expensive equipment. This explains the popularity of the game in rural areas. Kabbadi Sports.
