As someone with an existing background in yoga and dance, I can say Kalari has been a very complimentary practice. Providing more stability to dance and agility to yoga. Needless to say, Kalari encompasses all the components of Yoga; breath, flexibility, strength, focus and concentration. And as such is a spiritual practice with reverence to the Poothara. The teacher Bala Sir is very meticulous in his instruction with a wealth of knowledge. He is sound in anatomy, physiology/ providing great support and understanding to people of all ages. It’s wonderful to see young kids from the age 7-8 to elderly people in their 60’s benefitting from this practice. Kalari is for everyone who wants to practice. All you need is your will. I am so very grateful to have found Chennai Kalaripayattu. In a matter of 5 months I feel my confidence and stamina improve tremendously. If you’re interested in Kalaripayattu, look no further. What’s more, it’s located in the serene neighbourhood of Kalakshetra f...

My kid and myself have been learning Kalari here for about a year now. My kid was going to other martial arts classes before, and I wanted to have her try our traditional art form. I was so lucky to reach Mr. Bala, who is the founder and main teacher at Chennai Kalaripayattu. He is an amazing person who has an extraordinary way of inculcating the practices into you, while making sure we understand the mechanics of the body for proper techniques. Students of all age ranges learn here and he makes sure they follow a proper path based on their current fitness levels.

Both the master and Ms. Shwetha who helps in teaching the class do this with a sense of service & dedication and gives attention to every detail to help us make progress. While most other styles of martial arts classes concentrate on belt progression every few months, majority of the training here will ...

I've been associated with Chennai Kalaripayattu for a few years and my association with Balamurugan has been much longer as we learnt Kalari together. Kalari is meant for everyone - old, young, men, women, children. It builds a great deal of flexibility, stamina, concentration and confidence in one's own abilities. While it requires a certain degree of persistence and dedication, it is very useful in life in a number of ways, other than mere fitness. This is an art that women must attempt and master if possible, as it enhances confidence in one's own body and mind to a great extent. Bala is a very effective instructor, who takes care to ensure each person learns and enhances their ability as they practice. In all, a great platform to develop fitness of the body and the mind!

களரிப்பயிற்று என்பது பழந்தமிழகத்தில் தோன்றிய ஒரு தற்காப்புக் கலையாகும். இது அடிமுறை என்றும் அழைக்கப்படும். இன்று இது கேரளாவிலும் பயிலப்படுகிறது எனினும், நெடுங்காலமாக தமிழர் பயன்றுவந்த விருத்தி செய்த தமிழர் தற்காப்புக் கலைகளில் இதுவும் ஒன்று. இந்தக் கலை பற்றிய பழைய ஏடுகள் தமிழிலேயே உள்ளன என்பது இதற்கு சான்றாகும். களரிபயத்து அடித்தல், உதைத்தல், கொழுவிப் பிடித்தல், தொடர்தாக்குதல் நகர்வுகள், ஆயுதங்கள் ஆகியவற்றையும், உடற்பிடித்தல் மூலிகைகள் போன்ற மருத்துவ நுணுக்கங்களையும் உள்ளடகிய ஒரு முழுமையான கலையாகும்.வாள், கத்தி, சுருள்வாள், மான்கொம்பு, கண்டகோடாலி, மழு போன்ற ஆயுதங்களை களரி விளையாட்டில் பயன்படுத்துவர். களரி, வடக்கன் களரி, தெக்கன் களரி என இருவகைப்படும். கன்னியாகுமரி, நெல்லை, தூத்துகுடி ஆகிய பகுதிகளிலும் கேரளாவிலும் இக்கலை வடிவம் உள்ளது. களரி வீரர்கள் களரி நிகழ்வின் போது கடவுள், குரு, ஆயுதம், களம் ஆகியவற்றை வணங்கி பின் துவங்குவர்.
