Kalarippayattu, the mother of all martial arts. Its history can be traced back over 3000 years to the Vedas (which are a large body of knowledge texts from the ancient Indian subcontinent).
Kalarippayattu is the oldest martial art which invented in south Indian province Kerala.
Kalarippayattu practitioners gain the flexibility and strength of the body through a series of a variety of warm-up exercises. These exercises can transform our bodies like the Kalari warrior’s body. Here we are focusing on the northern Kalarippayattu style called ” Arappukai system”.
This course contains three breathing exercises of Kalarippayattu. Nischala Pranayama, Ooordha Hasta breathing technique, Prasaaritha Hasta breathing technique, Kasheru Vikasana breathing technique, Kasheru Samkochana breathing technique, and Parshva Vikasana breathing technique. Apart from these techniques, the course explained twenty-one kalarippayattu flexibility exercises as two sessions.
These exercises keep us from becoming fatigued during weapon training and in combat.
