ParashuramaVallabhattaKalari Academy

Martial arts have been practiced in India for nearly 3000 years, as proven by their mention in the Vedas. Lord Vishnu's disciple Parasurama, who was an avatar of Lord Vishnu, is said to be the founder of Indian martial arts, according to tradition. Parasurama is said to have invented Kalaripayattu, which is the most popular of the several martial arts practiced in India. Kalaripayattu is considered to be India's oldest martial art.The word kalaripayattu is made up of two words: kalari and payattu, which indicate training ground and battle, respectively. Kalaripayattu is an ancient art form that is widely regarded as one of the world's oldest kinds of martial arts. The South Indian kingdoms adopted kalaripayattu as a code of fight during the height of its popularity. During the Hundred Years' War between the Cholas, Pandyas, and Cheras, Kalaripayattu reached its pinnacle. The continuous fighting between princely states encouraged the warriors in developing their skills and developing them into a martial art form. Many Indian martial arts have lost steam due to neglect and a lack of proper documentation, but kalaripayattu has maintained the test of time. The art became dominant during the 13th and 16th centuries, and it was integrated into numerous religions. In Kerala, it was usual for all children over the age of seven to receive kalaripayattu training. For many in India, martial arts were seen as a code of life. On the other hand, Martial arts in India experienced significant difficulties during the British occupation.The ruling British opposed the practice of arming soldiers and training with them. To discourage people from practicing and training in kalaripayattu, laws were passed and applied with enthusiasm. The British enacted these rules in order to prevent any kind of mutiny or revolution among the natives. However, the British had underestimated India's love of martial arts, and kalaripayattu was secretly performed and preserved through the British colonial occupation of India. People in remote areas used the skill to avoid trouble with the government.As a result, one of India's most important martial arts has outlasted restrictions on its practise. When India gained independence, martial arts became popular again because they could again be performed without fear of retaliation. The lost reputation of kalaripayattu was gradually recovered. Many kalaripayattu motions and postures are thought to be inspired by the raw strength of animals and are named after them. It is often assumed that this skill evolved in the forests as a result of hunters observing the fighting skills of various animals. Parashurama's Martial arts are regaining popularity in India nowadays. Kalaripayattu is presently commonly practised in Kerala, the Karnataka and Tamil Nadu borders, and Sri Lanka. Many people in Kerala depend on Kalaripayattu for a job, as performances are frequently held for visitors. Unlike many other Indian martial arts, Kalaripayattu has maintained the test of time. Kalaripayattu is shown to be one of India's oldest martial arts, and it is currently practiced by many people in Southern India. Shiva is claimed to have taught Parasurama the skill of Kalaripayattu, which sprang from Shiva's struggle with his father-in-law Daksha, one of the Prajapatis or 'Lords Of Creation.' Later, Parasurama taught his 21 disciples the skill of Kalaripayattu, after which he established 108 Kalari (schools/gymnasiums) throughout Kerala, a Southern Indian state.

KalariKendram Noida

KalariKendram is dedicated to teaching Kalaripayattu, an ancient Indian martial arts method that is the foundation of all martial arts systems.KalariKendram with a Kalaripayattu temple was created in 2008 in the National Capital Region (NCR) Delhi to present this age-old legacy to a wider audience with the goal of imparting training while maintaining the basic ideals of this tradition at its foundation. At KalariKendram, people think Kalaripayattu is not just about training the body but also the mind; it is not only a martial arts practise but also about establishing a disciplined state of mind and, thus, a way of life, as acknowledged by the Indian Council for Culture Relations (ICCR). Besides from traditional Kalaripayattu martial arts training, KalariKendram also provides Kalaripayattu-based action choreography and personalized lessons for dancers, Yoga specialists, and athletes who want to explore the numerous dimensions of this martial arts style in relation to their own practicing. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF KALARIPAYATTU The name Kalaripayattu is derived primarily from the words "Kalari," which refers to the training space where the practice takes place, and "Payattu," which refers to the method of practicing. With strong roots in Kerala's social and cultural life, this form of martial arts was once considered a way of life for many people. This form's presence in the Vedas definitely demonstrates its existence for over 3000 years. The basic foundations of this martial arts technique may be found in Dhanurveda, often known as the Indian Science of Warfare.Kalaripayattu is an ancient Indian martial arts discipline that attempts to enhance the body and mind through a sequence of forceful, flowing movements. It was originally intended to combat wildlife. Many of its postures and movements are claimed to be influenced by animal movements and stances such as the Lion, Elephant, Wild Boar, Snake, and so on. Fearing that awareness of such a technique would spark an uncontrollable rebellion, the British prohibited the technique of Kalaripayattu. During this time, anyone found practicing or teaching Kalaripayattu experienced discrimination. Despite these constraints, an effort to preserve this old technique was made, which was guarded by a few dedicated Masters and performed in secretly. As a result, it survived and was restored after 1947. With solid ideals at its core, Kalaripayattu has continued to benefit following generations and is now quietly enjoying a resurrection. THE RELEVANCE OF KALARIPAYATTU TODAY While traditionally practised by warriors, many others have reaped the advantages through the years, which include but are not limited to enhancing the balance and flexibility of both body and mind. Kalaripayattu training enhances awareness of and synchronisation between the various parts of the body, in addition to speed and agility. Furthermore, Kalaripayattu is now regarded not only as a martial arts form, but also as a source of inspiration for practitioners of various movement-based expressions such as dance and theatre, who incorporate it into their art production.With its focus on holistic development, Kalaripayattu training can enforce discipline and improve focus in youngsters as young as 6-7 years old. Kalaripayattu is a martial art that parents interested in investigating for their children should definitely explore because it has the ability to lead to the child's whole growth. Students, both children and adults, learn to develop knowledge in different types of motions and techniques through a step-by-step procedure, and with time, a higher level of perfection within each of these. Because Kalaripayattu training involves discipline and constant efforts, it inspires discipline in the practitioner. As a result, in increased flexibility and strength, frequent practice increases concentration and can help reduce stress, anxiety, and tension. KALARI AYURVEDA Ayurveda - Ayur (life) Veda (knowledge) is a broad and varied body of information that comprises a series of practices - use of herbal powders and pastes, particular diet, and kalari massage – to ensure physical harmony. According to Ayurveda, the body is regarded as an universe unto itself, with all of its individual components considered indivisible. Here, the elements of earth, water, fire, wind, and ether interact to form the human body, a microcosm of the universe.Kalari Ayurveda is a branch of Ayurvedic knowledge that focuses on the study of vital sites (marma) in the body. Traditionally, all advanced Kalaripayattu students were taught about the various marma points – muscular, vascular, ligamental, bone-related, and joint-related, to name a few. Kalari Ayurveda can cure and repair injuries related to these important sites by using beneficial massages. BEYOND JUST THE MARTIAL ART The goal of Kalaripayattu practise was to train soldiers while developing other talents that would make them excellent human beings. After all, who wouldn't love a person who respects his instructors and parents, contributes to society with his compassion, doesn't harm anyone, and knows how to survive a real attack! Aside from the primary goal on building synchronisation between the mind and body, there is also an emphasis on understanding the functioning of the body through the various medicinal and therapeutic techniques that are important to Kalaripayattu training. At KalariKendram, we are committed to providing our students with equal opportunities so that they can improve through continuous learning. Our students are trained together, regardless of their skill level - beginner or experienced. This allows one to learn from one's peers while also motivating them to improve at a faster rate with more effective results.

Buddha Kalari

Buddha Kalari, an Academy of KalariMarma Ayurveda Therapy and Kalaripayattu, has the distinction of carrying on a magnificent martial arts and marmachikitsa history passed down through generations since 1924. It has pioneered in KalariMarmachikilsa, based on Ayurveda, during the previous eight decades, and has directed the creation of the KalariMarma Treatment tradition. The centre had spearheaded the promotion and dissemination of the tradition of marma massage and marma treatments by hosting numerous International and National level Marma Therapy courses.Dr. C.S. Suchith, the current Marma Master, is the third generation of the KadakkalVilakom family to uphold the original spirit and value of KalariMarma Treatment and Kalaripayattu.Dr. C.S. Suchith is a marma expert who has written MarmaSastram, a book about the science of marma. In the prologue to the book, His Highness Sri UthradamThirunalMarthanda Varma, the most revered member of the Travancore Royal family, complimented Dr. C.S. Suchith and Buddha Kalari's work in the field of Marma Treatment. The emphasis on tradition is what distinguishes Buddha Kalari. The things that are learned here cannot be learned from books, photographs, or films. The oils used in our Kalari Ashram's treatments are organic and manufactured on site under the master's supervision. The medicines we utilize in our therapies are produced from formulas that date back thousands of years. These were passed down to Dr. C.S. Suchith from his ancestors and professors in ancient palm leaf documents. We recognize that it is our responsibility to preserve past traditions for future generations. Buddha Kalari is a one-of-a-kind location. It is the only location where a martial art, Ayurvedic treatment, and a spiritual tradition are all integrated into one system. Our Ashram is a wonderful location to visit if people are looking for a place to relax, heal, and find inner peace. The 108 pressure spots throughout the body, usually close to the skin's surface, where vital nerves converge with muscular fibres, veins, bones, and joints, are known as marmas. The body's essential points are known as marmas. Prana (life energy) is routed through the marmas and flows throughout the body. A marma point is a spot on the body where two or more types of tissues, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones, or joints, intersect and the prana is present. Any disruption or stress to these marma sites results in immense pain, deformity, and even death. Marma Therapy refers to how the Gurukkal treats and heals injuries by manipulating these critical places in the human body using spiritual ideas, blessings from God and Masters, and mental force. Marmachikilsa uses a variety of medicinal oils and herbal preparations to cure a wide range of illnesses using precise manipulation and massage techniques that are unmatched even in this day and age.People from both East and West find relief from a variety of illnesses in Buddha Kalari, including back pain, neck pain, joint pain, disc prolepses, and more, through KalariMarma Treatment, where modern medicines like Allopathy and Homeopathy have failed. Aside from that, they had great success with relaxation and rejuvenation massage therapy. Mission Buddha Kalari is on a mission to spread KalariMarma Ayurvedic Therapy and Kalaripayattu, an ancient martial art, throughout the world. We believe we have achieved another milestone in our aim by establishing the Kalaripayattu Academy and Centre for Marma Treatment and by providing a comprehensive range of courses to interested students of Ayurveda, yoga, and martial arts.

KalariyilDharmikam (Indian School of Martial Arts)

Dharmikam Ashram is a spiritual, educational, and healing institution. There are several opportunities to grow through Kalaripattu teaching, KalariChikilsa therapies, and regular festivals hosted at the temple. These elements are intertwined and mutually beneficial. They could want to come for healing or to learn martial arts. Maybe people are seeking some peace and quiet, which this sanctuary provides. Some visitors even prefer to partake in a mix of the three. This is an excellent site to visit and discover if they want to progress. Gurus have passed down this rich spiritual heritage to their pupils for millennia. Guru Balachandran Nair, better known as Satguru Hanuman Das, is in charge of the ashram's preservation. The disciple lives with the master, according to the traditional Guru-Shishya Parampara. This enables him to communicate authentic Kalaripayattu and KalariChikilsa to the disciple. KalariyilDharmikam Ashram plays an essential role in preserving India's traditions, wisdom, and values as a result of this original tradition. Ashram The richness of the education is reflected in the lush grounds and gorgeous structures. Away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, they also provide a great setting for thought and meditation. Guests may thoroughly enjoy the magnificent surroundings thanks to the comfortable accommodation and great food. The majestic temple devoted to Lord Hanuman, where rites and festivities take place, is the main attraction. The tradition of Kalaripayattu Kalaripayattu is the world's oldest martial art style, with a history dating back over 12,000 years. Kalaripayattu is derived from the Sanskrit word "Khaluriga," which meaning "battle." Because of the application of power and speed to the body's "marma" (pressure) spots, it is the most hazardous martial art. This art is said to have developed from the Dhanurveda, which contains all martial skills. According to the Vishnu Purana, it is one of the eighteen traditional branches of knowledge. Origins of the Kalaripayattu tradition Kalaripayattu is a traditional dance from Kerala, which is supposed to have been formed from the ocean by Lord Parashuram, Vishnu's sixth avatar. Parashuram taught his Kalaripayattu skills to his 21 followers in order to defend the land. He then despatched these followers to various districts of Kerala, according to legend. As a result, Keralites regard Kalaripayattu as God's own martial technique, capable of defending God's own land. From its inception to the present day, this art has been passed down through many generations.Kalaripayattu is also the predecessor of Chinese martial arts, as it was brought from India to China by the Buddhist monk Bodhidharma in the fifth century. Kalaripayattu practitioners integrated the art with existing fighting traditions once it arrived in China. Kung Fu was born as a result of this partnership. The Portuguese traveller DuradBarbossa witnessed the Nair warriors performing this art later in the eleventh century, and noted it in his journey log. Kalaripayattu is a component of India's honour, heritage, and tradition, particularly among the Keralites. Fighting for the benefit of the country was a tremendous honour for their warrior tribe, and they practiced it as if it were their birthright. The Travancore troops used these strategies in several fights over the centuries, including three conflicts against the Dutch navy. Many warriors utilised this combat system against the British, including Veluthampi the Great and Pazhassi Raja. The British prohibited the martial art during their rule in India after being intimidated by these freedom warriors. Kalaripayattu had to be practised in secret by those who wanted to keep the culture and practice. The two schools The Northern and Southern school systems have two separate teaching traditions. The emphasis in the Northern tradition is on advancing from physical exercises to weapon combat and then to unarmed conflict. The sage Agastya, whose strength and concentration powers are legendary, is the patron saint of Kalaripayattu in the Southern tradition. Footwork, movement, and the ability to strike at ‘marmas' in the opponent's body, 108 of which are lethally vulnerable, are all highlighted in the Southern heritage. Kalaripayattu students learn how to fight and defend themselves. That doesn't just strengthen the body. Rather, it uses the spiritual element of the art to unite the body and mind. Once the body and mind are in good shape, they are synchronised into one channel, which is an important step in the practitioner's spiritual development. As a result, Kalaripayattu is critical in removing the core causes of moral degradation. It also assists pupils in becoming physically and mentally strong citizens of India who are confident, respected, and disciplined.In this century, the Kalaripayattu heritage is struggling to survive, gasping for air in the modern day. Satguru Hanuman Das, also known as Guru Balachandran Nair, is one of the few instructors who still devotes his life to preserving the tradition. First steps of Kalaripayattu training Guruji conducts an initiation for each student who intends to begin practising Kalaripayattu. After that, the learner might observe some courses and then learn the basic salutations used in each session. The level of Kalaripayattu training gradually increases after understanding these basic salutations. The student can learn the material in a systematic manner by following this sequence. As this place is considered a temple, class always begins with the lighting and salutation of the lamps inside the Kalari. Students then salute Bhoomi (Mother Earth) to thank her for allowing them to practise in her lap. The pupils then do the Guru's Pranaam (salutation) and revere the complete Guru Parampara (tradition). They perform the Vandana Chuvadu after that (first salutation form). To pray for blessings for appropriate combat footing, this form salutes the four directions, Mother Earth, God, and the Guru. The training begins only when this rite is completed. Pupils learn in mixed lessons with their colleagues when it comes to training with other students. Instructors, on the other hand, provide students individual attention based on their distinct learning styles. Students are encouraged to perform self-practice outside of class and to approach the instructors or Guruji at any time with questions or doubts. Kalaripayattu training does not include or encourage competition because the art is spiritual. This allows pupils to concentrate only on their own growth at their own schedule. As a result, they will be able to work without interruptions. Kalaripayattu training levels There are five levels in the syllabus: basic, intermediate, advanced, senior, and teacher. A student who does Kalaripayattu training on a regular basis may usually finish the basic level syllabus in about three months. Following the basic level, the intermediate level course takes around six months of daily practise. After then, it takes at least one or two years to accomplish the advanced and senior levels. Finally, a practitioner who wants to teach must have completed at least five years of daily exercise. These figures are averages that may differ for each kid based on their physical condition and progress. Even after learning the entire syllabus, perfecting the art takes years of consistent training, dedication, discipline, and devotion. Levels and weapons of Kalaripayattu The Kalaripayattu syllabus is divided into five levels. Even after achieving these levels, mastering the technique of Kalaripayattu takes years of consistent training, dedication, discipline, and devotion. Each new level focuses on improving the previous levels while also introducing new components. The following is a breakdown of the various levels: Basic Level The student learns unarmed skills that allow mastery of body motions and balance at the basic level. The following are examples of forms, combinations, and techniques: • Chuvadu (Salutation Forms) • Adithada (Unarmed Combat) • Pootu (Locks) • Valivu (Throws) Intermediate Level The student learns to achieve greater agility, flexibility, and synchronisation of body movements at the intermediate level by applying the above basic forms, combinations, and methods to a higher level. In addition, the candidate will learn: • Maypayattu (Flexibility Forms) • As well as the basics of Rad &Neduvadi (long session staff/stick). Advanced Level The advanced section concentrates on weapon training: Blunt weapons • Rad Veesh (Long Session Staff) To achieve mastery and control over the stick as well as to protect oneself, the long session staff is rotated at a fast speed in various ways. Individuals who wanted to protect themselves and keep animals away from their territories in the past would set fireballs on both ends of the staff and swing it at tremendous speeds. This action is thought to be the source of Nanchak's (chained stick) movements. • Neduvadi (Long Stick) • Kuravadi (Short Stick) • Cheruvadi (Medium Stick) Sharp weapons • Kathi (Dagger) • Kadara • Vettukathi Senior Level • The pupil learns traditional sword fighting as his or her training with these weapons progresses. The following are the various sword types: • Valum (Long Sword) This was the most popular weapon employed in ancient battles. This weapon is regarded one of the most lethal weapons since it may cause major injury even without much practise. • Churika (Medium Sword) Instructor Level • The instructor level necessitates knowledge of the following weapons: • ValumParichayum (Sword & Shield) Kalaripayattu's traditional weapon is a sword and shield combination. • Spear • Maru (Axe) • Urumi (Spring Sword) The Urumi is a weapon that is only found in India. This is a weapon that no other country in the world has. This weapon, worn as a belt by the warrior, is only for the most extreme and perilous situations, as it is easily self-injurious. This weapon has the power to hack off a hundred heads in a single pull when used by a perfect master. This weapon has the potential to take the warrior's own head if utilized improperly.

Chennai Kalaripayattu

Kalaripayirru is a traditional martial technique from ancient times. This is also known as the foundation. Kerala is now studying it as well. It is, nevertheless, one of the most developed Tamil martial arts that has been practised by Tamils for many years. This is due to the fact that historic manuscripts on this skill are written in Tamil. Scarecrow, kick, fattening, continuous attack techniques, weaponry, and bodybuilding herbs are all medicinal plants. It's a full-fledged art form with a lot of complexity. This information will be incorporated in the game. Northern Gallery and Southern Gallery are the two sections of the gallery. Kanyakumari, Nellai, Thoothukudi, and Kerala are all home to this art style.


Kalaripayattu has a centuries-long tradition, and the Lubaina Kalari was founded in 1959 by the late Abdullakutty Gurukkal. Abdullakutty Gurukkal was born in 1941 in Kerala's Palakkad district, and he learned kalari from his father when he was four years old. He then studied under his uncle Kunju Muhammad Gurukkal, and subsequently under the Veteran Ponnani Bappu Gurukkal, renowned as the King of Kerala Kalarippayattu. He studied central style Kalarippayattu under Bappu Gurukkal before travelling to Batkal, Karnataka to learn Tulu Kalarippayattu by Abduk Khadar Gurukkal. In Thalassery, Kerala, he founded the Lubaina Kalari. When he was 18, he opened his first branch in Kerala. After establishing a number of branches in northern Kerala, he chose to limit the Kalari to the district of Ernakulam and established Kalari branches throughout the district. Over the course of 40 years, he gained over 5000 followers, including the Father of Indian Karate, Moses Thilak. He died in 1999, at the age of 58, after 40 years as Kalari Gurukkal. Abdul Jaleel Gurukkal was born in the Kerala district of Palakkad in 1966. He has been studying traditional Kalaripayattu of the central style for approximately 25 years and has been teaching regular Kalaripayattu lessons in Ernakulam for the past 20 years. His father and forefathers are Kalaripayattu and Marma Chikilsa veterans, and he comes from a Kalaripayattu family. He took over the Lubaina Kalari after his father, the famed Abdullkutty Gurukkal. He began practising Kalari with his father when he was four years old, and later went on to teach with Beeran Gurukkal, Edappal Hassan Gurukkal, and Valapattanam Hassankutti Gurukkal. He is the current Kalari Asan (trainer) of the Ernakulam Regional Sports Centre.

MMA Kalaripayattu Training Ghaziabad

Master Ranjit Mishra started Martial Warriors Academy after studying under several martial arts experts/teachers. Looking at the state of the martial arts world, where actual martial arts knowledge is lacking, he built his own academy by merging all of the martial arts knowledge he has gathered throughout his martial arts journey. The majority of martial arts academies solely teach the physical aspect of martial arts. Furthermore, the physical martial arts taught by them are limited to either offensive or defensive approaches. This academy teaches all offensive and defensive concepts so that every student can take the proper step at the appropriate time. Also, the martial arts taught here are not restricted to the physical aspect. Internal martial arts, mental martial arts, and spiritual martial arts are also taught to learners of all abilities for general development. As a result, every student at our academy will be a complete warrior, not just a so-called warrior. Usually, the instructor does not train for one-hour or two-hour lessons at this institute. However, instruction will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because everything we do here is done with the spirit of a warrior. This same energy pervades everyone's intellect, body, and heart. The relationships we form here are not just for the time of the course, but for the rest of life, and this is what they start earning. The difference between most academies and us is that we focus on the total development of our pupils, which includes physical, internal, mental, and spiritual development. And it is in this way that our children are transformed into soldiers for life, not simply for the classroom.

Simashan Institute of Martial Arts

Quarter-Staff (Stick) use in defense and recreation appears to have existed in some form or another in practically every country in the world at all times. The mode and style of play, on the other hand, differ from state to state. Stick handling techniques are known as Silambam in India. Silambam is an ancient martial and folk art form. It has a long history of popularity. We can find a lot of evidence in Tamil literatures like Purananooru, Agasthiar Kambu Suthiram, and other minor literary pieces because this art started in Tamilnadu (one of India's states). Silambam is one of the 64 ancient arts, and as such, it is the mother of all martial arts, having its own set of methods and skills. The emperors of Dravidanadu heavily supported this aggressive skill throughout the Sangam Period. It was employed in battles.

The resurgence of Kalaripayattu is based on palm leaf scrolls and related know-how materials from traditional ruling families. Alien overlords attempted to eliminate this material art because it posed a significant military danger to their authority. Sri. Narayanan Gurukkal's exceptional efforts popularised Kalaripayattu art in Kerala after a long hiatus caused by the colonial authority in India. Narayanan Gurukkal, who died on December 24, 2000, had prepared his children Anil Kumar, Sunil Kumar, and Gopa Kumar to take over the CVN company.

Guru Chand Roop Akhara -Delhi

Wrestling is a traditional sport in almost every country. Wrestling is done in a mud or dirt pit in India. Before each practice, the soil is mixed with ghee and other ingredients and tended to. Traditional Indian wrestling is more than a sport; it's an ancient subculture in which wrestlers live and practise together, adhering to rigorous regulations that govern everything from what they can eat to what they can do in their free time. Drunkenness, smoking, and even sex are forbidden. The emphasis is on leading a pure life, strengthening their bodies, and honing their wrestling talents. Capt. Chandrup, also known as "Chandrup Pahalwan," received the Dronacharya Award in 2010 for his contribution to traditional Indian wrestling. He owns and operates a 'Akhara' (wrestlers' arena) in Delhi's Azadpur locality. Captain Chand Roop has great qualifications. From his renowned Chand Roop akhara in Delhi, he has produced a number of Olympians as well as other world and national-level wrestlers. Ombeer Singh (Asian Games and Asian Championship silver medalist, Olympian, six-time national champion, Commonwealth Games gold medalist), Ashok Kumar (two gold and as many silver medals in the Commonwealth Games, two times Asian Games participant, winner of medals in other international meets), and Rohtash Singh Dahiya (fifth in the Los Angeles Olympics, two gold medals in the SAF Game) are some of the athletes who have competed in the Asian Games. Dharambeer, Bharat Kesari, and Commonwealth silver medalist Netra Pal, Bharat Kesari, and Bharat Kumar are Olympians and Commonwealth silver medalists, respectively. Other prominent grapplers who have come out of the Chand Roop akhara include Vijay Kumar, Hind Kesari Krishan Kumar, Hind Kesari Sonu, and Junior Asian Championship bronze medalist Sanjay.
