Kalarippayat or Kalari is considered to be one of the oldest fighting system in existence. Scholars
often refer to Kalaripayattu as the "mother of all martial arts". It developed
at the junction of the indigeneous Dravidian culture of Southern India and the
Vedic culture that migrated from the north.
However, kalari ist more than just a martial art. Kalari training influences and develops the whole personality of the student: it builds up physical strength, flexibility, endurance, patience, inner calm mindfulness. Students learn to control anger and aggression, because body, mind and breath are balanced by the training. The ultimate goal of the practise ist that the body becomes all eyes.Fighting technique is very diverse in kalari: Quick movements, simultaneous attackand defense techniques, aswell as the coordinated use of hands and legs: blows, blocks, pushes, kicks, jumps.
Because of its unique concept, kalari ist a good choice für males and females, adults and kids.
