When playing it, the kids have to bend their bodies forward or backward and the limbs are kept in the same position, especially when the two rivals are a match for each other, the kids have to keep the same gesture for a long time.

But the kids’ joints and bones are very tender and gentle, which are vulnerable to damage. If their muscles are in a continuous contraction, they will consume too much oxygen and nutrition, so the tug of war for kids will lead to a deficiency of oxygen for the muscles or for the kids.
