Kabaddi is widely regarded as one of the most popular sports in the Indian subcontinent. However, a compelling form of the game has garnered enormous popularity in Pakistan, with videos quickly spreading over the internet.
This variant is known as 'Thappad' or Slap Kabaddi, and the major focus moves from tackling or escaping to slapping contests. Furthermore, unlike traditional kabaddi, which is played in teams of seven, this kind of kabaddi flourishes as a one-on-one sport.
According to a BBC story, the sport involves a lot of slapping, which most people find entertaining. Participants dress in traditional garb and slap one other until one has had enough.
A large crowd gathers at the locations to observe the one-of-a-kind sport.
