Kalaripayattu is the exclusive martial arts legacy of Kerala,India taken to China by the Buddhist monks which became the fabled model for the modern martial arts. Kalari means school or arena and payattu is skill training exercise or practice.

Buddhist writings show that Kalaripayatt flourished during the 5th century AD. All the modern day martial arts such as Kung-Fu, Karate, Judo, Kick-Boxing, Tai-Chi etc are believed to have been originated from Kalaripayattu.

Kalaripayattu helps to gain mental peace, physical strength and flexibility. Kalaripayattu is a martial art that is also an Orthopaedic system, massage regimen, Ayurvedic treatment and a cultural experience – all in one.

It inculcates traditional values, discipline and respect to the elders and teachers, inculcates firm faith in the existence and power of God.
