PROFILE

The Japan national kabaddi team represents Japan in international kabaddi. It made its way to the semi finals in 2007 world cup of kabbadi which was its best achievement.

Japan is one of those nations that is rapidly taking to kabaddi. The sport is picking up in popularity among students and adults with several hundred registered players in recent times. With a team of strong individuals who possess agility, athleticism and a strong physical presence on the mat, they are no strangers to the sport on the international stage.

Japan has embraced kabaddi and of course featured in some prominent competitions, including playing in the Asian Games since 1990 and even going on to win the bronze medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Games. There’s no question that they will be one of the teams to watch out for during the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup in Ahmedabad.
