Tug of War is a contest in which two teams show their strength by pulling against each other at opposite ends of a rope. This sport originated from ancient ceremonies and cults, which are found all over the world. Egypt, Burma, India, Borneo, Japan, Korea, Hawaii and South America. The ancient tug of war was performed in various styles. Teams in Afghanistan, used a wooden stake instead of a rope to pull. Children in Korea clasped their arms around each other’s waists to form a living tug of war chain. The Northern Canada, Native children have a tug of war contest known as ‘arsaaraq’. It’s a tug of war contest with the pullers sitting on the ground, using a short rope. The one who pulls his opponent over from his seated position is the winner.
