Nina Bellington said, “Popular in parts of Asia, kite fighting is a traditional pastime involving single string kites where directional control is achieved by changing the pressure on that single line. The game involves detaching the opposing kite from its string (often involving the use of glass or blades on the line immediately below the kite itself). These are simple, traditional square kites that are easy to make using a split cane and trash bag – great fun and thoughtfully used have few issues (usually go a long way). Just a little common sense and consideration of others and the job is fair.
