Author(s): CH. Mahesh, B Sunil Kumar and Tara Singh Thakur

Abstract: The purpose of the study is to correlate the Lower Body Anthropometric measurements of Male Kabaddi players in the age group of 18 to 23 years with their raiding abilities. To serve the purpose of the study, a sample of 40 male Kabaddi players pursuing Graduation in Technology and Engineering were selected with the criteria being that they have been participating in Inter-College tournaments for at least past three consecutive years and the age of the individuals range from 18 years to 23 years were taken. The lower body anthropometrics taken for the study were Upper Leg length, Hip circumference, Thigh Circumference and Calf Circumference and the tests conducted for testing the raiding skills of the players were On-the-spot Bonus Test, Side Target Kick Test & Leg Thrust Reach Ability Test. Results obtained during the study showed that On-the-spot bonus ability and Leg Thrust ability of male Kabaddi players are directly proportional to their Hip circumference and Side target kick ability of male Kabaddi players is directly proportional to their Thigh circumference and to some extent dependent on the upper leg length.
