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.

Did kabaddi exist during Guru Jees time?

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.

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.
