According to a recent study by the National Wildlife Federation, playing Kabbadi is beneficial for children. The study showed that when children get dirty outdoors, it is beneficial for their health, as compared to allowing them to spend time indoors with hi-tech gadgets.

As per the ancient belief, traditional Indian games for children were designed in such a way that they could help along the development of children.

These developments include children’s social skills, along with their ability to think logically and build up strategy. According to the experts, the origin of kabaddi can be traced to the prehistoric times. In India, kabaddi was primarily devised as a way to develop the physical strength and speed in young people.

During its inception, kabaddi was played to boost the self-defense skills and to develop quick responsiveness to attacks. Moreover, kabaddi also sharpened the reflexes of counter attacks of the individuals, who mostly played in groups or teams. Kabaddi has its own place in Indian Mythology as well.
