A "raider" must not breathe while trying to tag opponents

At the 15th Asian Games, the kabaddi competition shall be conducted in accordance with the Rules of the Asian Amateur Kabaddi Federation (AAKF).

If seven or less teams participate, the matches will be played in a single group with a round robin system. If eight or more teams participate, they will be divided into two groups to play league matches. The top two teams from each group will play in the next round knockout matches.

A victorious team is awarded two points; in the event of a draw each team receives one point while a losing team gets zero points. If there is a draw in the final or semi-finals, two extra periods of five minutes are played immediately, with the same number of players on court as there were at the end of the second half.

Each participating country or region may enter one team comprising a minimum of 10 players and a maximum of 12 players (including standby players).
