Kalaripayattu Basics

Martial Arts

Learn the basics of Kalaripayattu - an ancient martial art - to establish balance and stability.

9 Live Online Sessions

The Oldest Form of Martial Arts

Known as "the mother of all martial arts," Kalaripayattu is said to have originated from the Dhanurveda, a scientific treatise on the art of warfare in ancient Bharat (India).

Though the art form’s significance as a combat code has receded, in a phoenix-like resurrection, Kalaripayattu is today emerging as a source of inspiration for self-expression in dance forms - both traditional and contemporary, theater and fitness.

Practicing Kalaripayattu increases one’s flexibility and agility, strengthens the muscles and tendons by exercising the body without the need for any equipment.
