The history of this game dates back to the time of the Mongol raids. So the nomads trained young warriors in skill. Then the training turned into a game. This exotic sport has taken root in Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Initially, each participant played exclusively for himself. Today the players are divided into two teams. Within the team, the players are divided into defenders, attackers, spreaders.

Previously, players were not bent used to use gross physical strength, and could smear the opponent Nagaika. Today it is prohibited by the rules, and in general the game looks like a civilized. Sometimes even contrary to traditions, instead of the murdered animal uses a mooring.
