Is Kabaddi Good For Sikhi ?

Recommended Posts

Kabaddi which is Punjab's most popular rural sport has become very popular and a World Kabaddi League is going to start soon.
All I want to know is that is it good for Sikhi? Should sikhs help promote kabaddi ?

Kabbadi is good, I have never played it myself but I think it's a good thing as it's a form of exercise which would keep a sikh fit and healthy.

The caste supremacy opinions continuously dropped over the commentators mic are not in any way good for sikhi or Kabbadi, once again it's overlooked.

why not? why sikhs are being so desperate to follow western culture and english? kabbadi is our maa khed as same as like punjabi maa boli...I do play every Sunday.. if your are sikh from punjabi background then embrace all those nice things that are compatible with sikhi....

Kabaddi is good for general fitness due to the training kabaddi players undertake I.e: lots of daandh and bethkay ( Indian pressups and squats), good for strengthening the legs. The other advantage was the breathing control in having to continuously repeat the word kabaddi.

Breathing exercises and control are components used in higher level martial arts.

However kabaddi is nowhere near as good as traditional Indian wrestling such as kushti and pehlwani . for Sikhs and aspiring Khalsa we should look more to the combat art forms for our sang sipahi lifestyle. Wrestling, edged weapons skills, spear, mace, swordsmanship etc. In other words jang vidiya/ shastar vidiya.

Kabaddi is good for fitness but otherwise is just a game of limited use to a Sikh..

This question should never be on the lips or minds of Sikhs, as Guru Amardas Ji, encouraged and organised kabaddi matches especially between children and youths, as well as wrestling.

Nothing the Guru's put time and effort into can be bad for Sikhs.

Bravo to SikhTv who gave us Kabaddi on Tv first and now the Sikh Channel who are doing an excellent job in showing uk Kabaddi tournaments every day.

Kabaddi is more than a game of strength.

A great kabaddi match between the Khalsa Warriors and Lahore Lions, which was viewed as a match between Sikhs/india and pakistan.

Enjoy! :

Anyone see the final of the Wave Kabaadi League?

Khalsa Warriors just missed out on winning in the last 2 minutes of play to the very impressive "United Singhs" (UK).

World Kabbadi has started now.

Many countries are participating. Sweden, Argentina, etc.on Sky Channel 815.
