Korean Traditional Sport

Have you ever imagine the fusion of volleyball and footbal??

It’s exist in Korea. They called it Jokgu (족구) . I firstly saw in my campus, when homecoming party held there.  Bellow is the picture of Jokgu.


Getting on your feet:
The playing area measures 16 meters (53 feet) by 7 meters, and the net stands 1.1-meter high. Each of two teams has four starting players and three relievers. A game consists of three sets of 15 points each. Score is counted under the rally point system, under which one must have a two-point advantage to win a game and there are no caps on the final score. Point winners have the right to serve. Serving a rebounding ball is against the rules. A point from a serve earns two points. Receivers are allowed up to three bounds and three touches. Only one’s head and shins can touch the ball. The ball for jokgu measures 20 centimeters (7.9 inches) in diameter and weighs 360 grams (0.79 pound).
