Kalarippayat – the traditional martial art of Kerala

Before taking the train to Goa on Thursday I visited a Kalarippayat school in Trivandrum where I was allowed to watch the training. It was very interesting to see how balanced and stretched the kalari students were. But what impressed me most was to see how close Kalarippayat is to the ancient Sri Lankan martial art of Angam Pora.
A very funny coincidence at that day was that I met a Martial artist from Munich who knows a lot about my father! That was very surprising.
