Story

Our 400 years old ancient Kalari is undergoing a renovation.


Kalaripayattu is the oldest martial arts in the world and is called as mother of all martial arts.It is originated in Kerala, southern state of India.It is said that Lord Shiva taught these ancient yogic martial arts to Parashurama,who in turn taught this ancient martial art to his disciples. Kalari is similar to the 'dojo' for karate where students learn kalarippayattu. It is regarded as a temple worshiping place as well with Shiva, Ganapathy(lord ganesha), and Guru.

Today this ancient Indian martial arts is on the verge of extinction, as government level funds nor pension are not available to support it.

Our Kalari is an ancient Kalari in Kerala, more than 400 years old, has been training kalarippayattu (ancient Indian martial arts )
The situation of the Kalari is that at any time it can fall down.
We don't have enough money to renovate this ancient Kalari.
Any single penny can help the children of the village who are training kalarippayattu here for free.
