Tatsuya Yoigoshi was an ace soccer player called the “Indomitable Yoigoshi,” but when he enters high school he uses the opportunity to ditch sports altogether. One day, a certain sports team invites him to check out one of their practices. In this sport, teammates work together to catch the “raider” in their court and drag them down to win. A “running martial art” so to speak. The name of this intense sport is...kabaddi!
