Move the signature

  • Each raider has a move for which he earns most of his points; Naveen Kumar’s signature move is the “Running Hand Touch”.
  • This movement is taken by surprise, and with a sudden increase in speed, a raider rushes towards the defender and extends his whole body for a quick touch with his hand before rushing to safety.


Haryana has always been a hotbed of budding young players and Naveen Kumar is also a pearl in that ocean. We believe that he succeeds in his sport and reaches infinite heights. After the Pro Kabaddi League, we hope he will represent our Indian team at the international level as well.
