We visited CVN Kalari Edakkad to partake in a day of kalaripayattu training. Under the watchful eyes of T. Sudhakaran Gurukul, we are led through the daily rituals of a typical Kalari in Kerala. We see the students beginning the day by massaging oil into their bodies, performing Namaskara at the Puttara and then they circumambulate the Kalari, paying respect at each altar. This is followed by meyabhayasam and a demonstration of various weapons and combat styles (Maithari, Kolthari, Ankathari & Verumkai Prayogam). We also get a brief look at Kalari Marma chikitsa.
