Kabaddi, which means ‘to hold one’s breath’ in Hindi (the official language of India), is a team sport that combines juggling and martial arts, and is the best exercise for developing cooperation and unity. It started as an Indian folk game and was adopted as an official event at the 1990 Beijing Asian Games, and attracted attention at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, where Korean men’s athletes defeated the host nation, India, in the final to win a silver medal.
