Kajal shared a video compilation of herself in various stances of the martial arts form and wrote, “Kalaripayattu is an ancient Indian martial art, that translates into ‘practice in the arts of the battlefield.’ The magic of this art form evolved into the birth of Shaolin, Kung Fu and consequently Karate and Taekwondo, amongst others. Kalari was typically used for guerilla warfare and is a beautiful practice that empowers the seeker physically as well as mentally. Grateful to have been learning this intermittently (but wholeheartedly) over 3 years! CVN Kalari have been fabulous and so patient, guiding me as per my ability to learn and perform at different degrees over time. Thank you for being such wonderful masters.”
Kalaripayattu comes with multiple health benefits. It helps in improving body awareness and the overall flexibility of the body. It also helps in improving concentration of the body, gaining control over the mind and knowing the stances for self-defence.
