Introducing an ancient Indian martial art. Witness the Kalarippayat warriors' mastery of flying movements and clashing swords perfected by a traditional martial training and the physical culture of ancient India. The art of Kalari, commonly known as Kalarippayat, has been woven in to the social institution of Kerala, South India, as a unique form of physical culture exclusively practiced in a ritual space called Kalari. It is also a comprehensive system of body training, leading to agility, flexibility and training in controlling the flow of energy in the spine.
