benefits of kabaddi to Sikh Kaum?

Recommended Posts

I think its good, definitely good for toughening someone up. Guru Angad Dev ji opened an Akhara where Guru Sahib used to get his Sikhs to wrestle. 

It's quite popular among the youth in Punjab, which is a good thing.

Just now, Arsh1469 said:

kabaddi has even found a mention in Hindu mythology. In the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata, It is said that the Pandava warrior, Arjuna, mastered kabaddi's skills from Lord Krishna, who adored the sport.

Yes, I believe the first kabaadi was played by Krishan ji and one of his companions.

I'm from the UK, so I've never played kabaddi, though I think there are kabaddi teams in the UK. 

We have teams from Punjab that get invited to the UK to take part in Kabaddi tournaments. 

My dad took me to a few Kabaddi tournaments as a kid in Southall. 

I remember being quite traumatised by the drunken behavior of the audience!  maybe things have changed now!  

But in India I think alcohol is banned at Kabaddi matches? it's good how Kabaddi tournaments take place outside Gurdware in Punjab. They do Ardas before the match, jakare, the granthi Singh is sometimes involved in giving the trophies, I've seen matches where they narrate our Sikh ithiaas etc  it's a great move how they include Sikhi in Kabaddi.

I was born and brought up in Ludhiana but never played or watched kabaddi.

Only started watching kabaddi when Badal started the Kabaddi world cup in punjab around 8-9 years back.

Ķabaddi is a very interesting sport especially the punjabi style of kabaddi.

Don't like the Indian kabaddi where all men can stop the raider.

Does anyone like Indian kabaddi?

All the stoppers like a mob attack the raider.

just shows the mob mentality of Hindus?

in punjabi kabaddi it's one on one.

If you're training to fight mobs you should do the hindu one then.

    • I'm shocked at the level of ignorant comments here. Dildos up their backsides? Kusrey? City people? First of all the reason they're called City Sikhs is because they work in the City of London, a financial district in Central London, it's got nothing to do with living in cities vs living in villages. 99% of Sikhs in the UK live in urban areas. That really went over the head of many people here. Do you expect them to look like UFC fighters?  Puzzled - can you tell me your level of education and what you do for a living?
    • I guess if it is OK for recently arrived Punjabis to settle down with East European women and have Sikh kids then there is nothing wrong in settling down with a Chinese woman. The Chinese are ultimately a dharmic people (if we take the current political situation out of the question) and have always been interested in what happens west of their border.  
    • Tbh, even "our own" can't be trusted. I personally stopped giving a damn what other people thought a long time ago, especially when it comes to rishta/marriage. 
    • In ultimate truth time is an illusion (Akal). All there is, is present the now. God created itself in many forms to create contrast ( limiting itself in forms)
    • There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to the 2011 census, there were (at the time) about 432,000 Sikhs in the UK. Accounting for some population growth and uncounted people (such as illegal immigrants), there are probably at least 500,000 Sikhs in the UK today. Now take into consideration that the UK has a population of about 67 million crammed into a relatively small island. And also consider that most of the Sikhs live in certain parts of the UK that have relatively large Sikh populations (e.g. West London, Birmingham area, etc.). There are not official figures on Sikhs in the US, but based on data about people from and Indian background and Punjab-speaking background, 250,000 is probably a very conservative upper bound on the US Sikh population. And then consider that the US is a massive country and has a population of about 330 million. As a consequence, Sikhs are much less visible and much less powerful (as a community) in the US than they are in the UK. In the UK, I feel like most people have an awareness of who Sikhs are. When I have been in the UK, it is a bit of a relief to not feel like I have to constantly point out that I'm not an Arab or a Muslim. In the US, nobody had a clue what a Sikh was when I was growing up. It is getting a bit better now, but it's still not great.   Anyway, aside from how Sikhs are viewed by the general population, I think the population density of Sikhs is most important for the Sikh community itself. It makes for a greater support system for more religiously inclined Sikhs. Further, the critical mass enables people who don't come from religious families to nevertheless gain exposure to Sikhi and get into it as they grow older. That's probably why examples of monay who become Singhs are much more frequent in the UK than in the US.
