Kalaripayattu is regarded as the most ancient martial art form in the world. Kalaripayattu training focuses on the co-ordination of mind and body.
A system of scientifically arranged and well graded series of exercises is there in this martial art.
Training is best done in children since their bodies are suppler and adopt any kinds of physical postures.
