Kalaripayattu is a traditional Indian martial art form that combines elements of combat with weaponary. In Kalari, the use of naturally flowing body movements and postures along with various martial techniques, skills and sequences is used in the fight against an opponent and that is exactly what we reflect in our kalari martial art show. Practitioners of Kalaripayattu possess intricate knowledge of pressure points on the human body and healing techniques that incorporate the knowledge of Ayurveda and Yoga.
Kalaripayattu includes strikes, kicks, grappling, preset forms, weaponry and healing methods. Warriors trained in Kalaripayattu would use very light, and basic body armor, as it was difficult to maintain flexibility and mobility while in heavy armor. Two or more persons take part in this exercise. The target areas in angathari are head, chest, back, stomach and the portion below the knee.
