Event description:

Kalarippayat is valuable as a performing art, a tool for self-defense, and to sharpen the body and mind.

What: Kalarippayat Foundations 2-Month Intensive Course, certified by CVN Kalari Sangham, Kerala
Who: Participants must be above the age of 15, and have some experience with dance, yoga, sport, or martial arts.
When: January 17, 2017 - March 12, 2017 (apply by December 20!), Tuesday-Sunday, 6am-8am

Kalarippayat is a ritualistic movement and martial arts practice that originated in the Malabar region of Kerala. Kalarippayat training is divided into three parts: Meithari (body preparative exercises), Kolthari (training in wooden weapons), and Ankathari (training in combat weapons). During medieval times, young boys and girls were introduced to the physical and self-disciplining practices of Kalarippayat at the age of nine. The most proficient and dedicated students were eventually chosen to become warriors. Although the techniques of Kalarippayat were at one time used on the battlefield, Kalarippayat has no role in battle today.

In this 2-month intensive, Raam Kumar will introduce students to the traditional practice of Kalarippayat, while maintaining a modern and forward outlook. The course will deal with the different approaches to understanding the body and creating self-awareness to find the right balance between the body and mind. Participants in the course will work on balance, alignment, agility, endurance, and focus.

Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a foundation certificate from the pioneering Kalarippayat institution, CVN Kalari Sangham in Trivandrum, Kerala. They will also have the option to visit the CVN Kalari Sangham and train for one week as an extension of the course at Shoonya. Participants would be responsible only for travel and accommodation.
