Kite battleing makes the idea of flying kites seem much more exciting. There have been many different types of kite battles, each country having different techniques, kites and rules. The most dangerous of those being the Caribbean kite battles; they attach sharp objects such as knives or razor blades to the tail of their kites in-order to try and slash the opponents kite.
The most popular type of kite battling which can be seen regularly at kite festivals is the Rokkaku kite battle which came from Japan. The aim is to either cut the opponents string, tip over the kite thus making it fall to the ground or to block the other kites wind also leaving their kite falling to the ground.
