what is kalaripayattu

Rishikul Yogshala

Kalaripayattu is an ancient martial art form that originated in the southern Indian state of Kerala. It is considered one of the oldest fighting systems in existence, with a history dating back over 3,000 years. The name "Kalaripayattu" is derived from two Malayalam words: "Kalari," which means battlefield or combat arena, and "Payattu," which means fight or practice.

Kalaripayattu encompasses a wide range of techniques that include strikes, kicks, grappling, as well as healing methods, physical conditioning, and breathing exercises. The art form is not just about combat but also focuses on overall well-being and self-discipline.

Traditionally, Kalaripayattu was practiced in Kalari, a specially designed training arena, with students guided by a master called "Gurukkal." Training in Kalaripayattu involves a combination of physical exercises, choreographed sequences, and various weapons training.

In addition to being a martial art, Kalaripayattu is deeply rooted in Indian culture and mythology. It is often associated with various dance forms and theatrical performances, further showcasing its artistic and cultural significance.

Today, Kalaripayattu has gained international recognition and is practiced both in India and across the world. It attracts enthusiasts not only for its combat techniques but also for its emphasis on mind-body coordination and overall fitness. Additionally, it has become a popular choice for individuals seeking unique and culturally enriching experiences through martial arts training.

history of kalaripayattu

Rishikul Yogshala

Kalaripayattu, an ancient martial art form that traces its roots back to the mystical landscapes of Kerala, India, embodies a captivating history shrouded in myth and tradition. Enveloped in legends of divine origins, Kalaripayattu is said to have been forged by Lord Parasurama himself, a divine figure known as the warrior sage. Yet, beyond its mythological beginnings, the annals of time reveal its existence in ancient texts, attesting to its prominence in the annals of South Indian history.

Scholars point to its Dravidian origins and regional influences, which gave rise to a unique and multifaceted martial art form that encompassed combat, healing, and a profound connection to the essence of life. Despite facing the test of time, Kalaripayattu's spirit persisted through various trials, from the era of colonial suppression to a triumphant revival in the modern age.

Today, its enduring legacy persists, as Kalaripayattu not only preserves its cultural heritage but also mesmerizes enthusiasts worldwide with its awe-inspiring techniques, its holistic approach to mind and body, and its timeless allure as a living testament to the spirit of Kerala's ancient warriors.

The history of Kalaripayattu is steeped in legend and ancient traditions, making it a challenging task to pinpoint its exact origins. The origin stories vary, but most of them trace back to the southern Indian state of Kerala, specifically to the region known as Malabar.

  • Mythological OriginsAccording to legend, Kalaripayattu is believed to have been developed by Lord Parasurama, an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. As the story goes, Parasurama reclaimed the land from the sea by throwing his axe (Parashu), and the art of Kalaripayattu was taught to warriors to defend this newly reclaimed land.
  • Dravidian OriginsSome historians suggest that Kalaripayattu may have evolved from the indigenous fighting systems of the Dravidian people, the original inhabitants of South India. These practices likely integrated with elements of traditional Indian martial arts and indigenous combat forms.
  • Historical ReferencesThe earliest written references to Kalaripayattu can be found in ancient texts such as the Sangam literature, which dates back to around 3rd century BCE to 3rd century CE. These references indicate that Kalaripayattu was a prominent martial art practiced during that time.
  • Regional InfluencesOver the centuries, Kalaripayattu evolved and incorporated influences from different regions and cultures, including Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine), yoga, and even elements from neighboring martial arts of Southeast Asia.
  • Cultural SignificanceKalaripayattu was not just a combat technique but also an integral part of Kerala's cultural heritage. It was practiced by warriors, known as "Marma Chikitsakar" (combat healers), who would use their knowledge of vital points (marma) in combat and healing.
  • Decline and RevivalDuring British colonial rule in India, Kalaripayattu faced suppression and decline, as the British discouraged indigenous martial arts. However, in the 20th century, efforts were made to revive and preserve Kalaripayattu as part of Kerala's cultural identity. It gained popularity both in India and internationally as a unique martial art and fitness form.
