When I was a kid, this game (or a version of) had the most unfortunate politically incorrect name of "smear the quear". Hell, I was probably 12 before I understood that name had negative connotations.

Kabbadi is pretty cool. I dont understand all the rules but the game itself looks pretty fun.

I read the article and read wiki and still don't quite get it.

The whole holding your breath thing is odd.

I'd play if everybody promises to shower and put on deodorant before the game.

bogus, when its a "sport" its legit, but when it's played by one man and one woman late at night in a park it's called rap... I'll see myself out.

I played one time -- basically we got oiled up so that the other team couldn't keep a grip on us and then we chased each other in the dust. Guys have it easy since they don't have nails, but there are no rules against nails and I was left bleeding from the girls who had crazy nails.
