    Kabbadi Thread

    Are there any dedicated sites for Kabbadi out there. I have a hankering to watch some at the moment and sadly Sky NZ doesn't consider it to be a mainstream support worthy of broadcast.

    Used to watch that about twenty years ago on Channel 4, sponsored by Tilda Rice and the music... I don't know how to describe it other than to say it would be almost impossible to mimic.

    Anyway I'm a bit rusty, but basically it's a 7-a-side game, played on what looks a bit like a clay tennis court without the net. The teams take it in turns to send an attacker. The attacker has to keep saying kabaddi to show they're not taking a breath in - which they're not allowed to do. The idea of the attacker is to touch people on the 'defending' side and get back to their own side. The defending side is trying to capture the attacker by getting hold of them and stopping them getting back. So you generally have a sort of standoff where the defending guys are holding hands in a chain and adjusting their position according to the attacker and trying not to get touched (unless they can pounce themselves). I can't remember how the whole prisoner and scoring thing works, but it doesn't stay 7-a-side long.

    Yep - same here. Wasn't it broadcast before or after Football Italia?

    But yeah, the premise you've outlined is about right as I recall. If the attacker touches a defender and gets back to his own half, then the defender is out of the game.

    If the attacker gets pounced on before he can get back to his half, then he's out of the game.

    Then you lose if you run out of players, I think.

    Used to play it tonnes in school back in the day. I'm not sure how the pros work, but Scaly's almost got it covered. When the 'attacker' enters the defense's half, he's trying to touch as many defenders as he can and then get back to his team's half. Anybody that gets touched by the attacker is considered out if the attacker makes it back to home ground, so the defense has to try and prevent him from getting back and make him take a breath in. Some teams will play it safe and only risk pouncing on someone if the attacker touches one of theirs, while others will play aggressively and try to pounce on anyone that comes close to them.

    The players that are out can come back in one by one for every player of the opposition that gets out.

    This is a good game as an example:

    lol...reminds me of one of shahrukh khan's movies
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Do you think you'll need that many 'Kabbadi's?
