The 21st Century has augured well for the game of India and South Asian Countries - Kabaddi.
Ever since Kabaddi was established as a priority sports discipline in
the XI Beijing Asian Games in 1990, there has been a steady improvement
in the progress of this sport at the International level.
The inclusion of Kabaddi as a priority
discipline for the first time in the 2nd Asian Indoor Games at Macao
is a landmark in the history of Kabaddi. This gave a golden opportunity
to show case Kabaddi to the Asian countries and was as an epoch making
event in Macao – SAR China.
It is noteworthy that it was China
where Kabaddi was included as a priority discipline in the 1990 Beijing
Asian Games and 16 years later; China gave another opportunity to
Kabaddi to make its debut in the Asian Indoor Games.
This was, is and will remain a major stepping-stone in the history of Kabaddi.
Efforts to get Kabaddi included in the
Asian Beach Games to be held in Indonesia in Oct. 2008 have proved
successful, giving a further fillip to the game.
In view of the popularity and progress
of the game at the Asian and International level, the need for it’s
own website giving information of the game, rules, past & future
events, contact information photo & videos was felt and this
website is a result of the same.
I am sure that this will help us in further popularizing the game in the world.
We at AKF are working on a theme
‘To-Day in Asia Tomorrow in Olympics’
Without naming any body in person I
thank all those who have worked hard in order to complete the website. (J. S. GEHLOT) PRESIDENT
