Kalaripayit is a very ancient martial art born in India. It is similar to the classical systems of Jujitsu. The art is very complete, offering training in striking and grappling techniques, as well as weapons training and even Atemi. Training includes a combination of strenuous exercise, forms work, and sparring practice. A master in combat seeks first to avoid conflict, then to defeat his attacker with a minimum of force, using temporarily disabling strikes initially, then escalating his assault as necessary.
