Anup Kumar (born 20 November 1983) is a former Indian professional Kabaddi player. He was a member of the India national kabaddi team that won Asian gold medals in 2010 and 2014, one South Asian gold medal in 2016 and the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup.

It is believed that Kabaddi was originated in ancient India. It was first played in the state of Tamil Nadu. The word kabaddi was derived from the Tamil word “kai-pidi” (கைபிடி) meaning “to hold hands”. Tamil empire spread this game to South East Asia during their sea trade.

kabaddi is slowly growing around the world , it is more famous in South Asian countries with India , Pakistan and Iran are the major giants in the game. As of now There are more than 40 countries who has their national teams either in men or women competitions.
 it is essential the player recite “Kabaddi” repetitively while raiding. This shows that the raider's breath is not broken. ... According to me, in the new Pro Kabaddi League, each raid is limited by 30 seconds. Thus, the rule to chant Kabaddi is eased upon and is seen more as a tradition.

Object of the Game
The overall object of the game is to simply score more points than the opposition team within the allotted time. To do this, each team must attempt to score points by both attacking and defending. When attacking, the offensive team sends across a raider into the opposition’s half who must touch one of more members of the opposition to score a point. When defending, the objective is to capture the raider by wrestling them to the ground or simply by preventing them returning to their own half by the time their breath is up.
Players & Equipment
Kabaddi is played by two teams that both consist of twelve players each. However, only seven players per team are allowed on the field of play at any one time. The Kabaddi playing surface measures 13m x 10m and is separated into two halves by a white line, one team occupying each half. It can be played on a wide range of surfaces from a dedicated clay court to spare ground where a playing surface has been chalked out.
Unlike so many other popular sports and games, Kabaddi is a game that genuinely needs no special equipment, clothing or accessories, ensuring it is a game that is open to everyone.
Scoring in Kabaddi is relatively simple. Teams score one point for each opponent that they put out of the game. Putting an opponent out (and thus scoring a point) is done in different ways. When attacking, this is done by the raider touching opposition members, putting them out. When defending, it is done by preventing the raider returning to their own half.
Bonus points are also available in Kabaddi. The raider can earn an extra point by successfully touching the bonus line in the opposition’s half. Three bonus points are available to a team when all of their opponents are declared out and a point is also available if any part of an opposing team member’s body goes outside of the boundary
