    Please, theres nothing foreign about this, i m an Indian but i m not from India, i find that theres more to kallaripayyat then just sport fighting, just like Muay Thai and so on

    its spiritual and its a deadly art,
    an art the encomposes all the aspects of any martial art,
    Akido, Healing, Kung Fu, Capoiera,

    Discovery Channel and all these other channels probably made a mocrey outta it, but i think theres more to it. and not just something villagers keep themselves occupied with

    You just made a mocery out of it:
    Akido, Healing, Kung Fu, Capoiera,
    Healing is a MA?
    Last time I yell at my doctor over the bill....


    its spiritual and its a deadly art,
    How so? What does it do that makes it so deadley and spiritual?

    an art the encomposes all the aspects of any martial art,
    How is this possible? I have been studying TKD for 13.5 years and I still dont get all the aspects of it. You have ALL the MA encomposes into one?

    Lots of arts claim to be deadly arts that incorporate everything. As a practitioner of a Kung Fu system that claims to be a complete system I'll let you in on the secret that about 99% of them are lying.

    Discovery Channel actually often gives these "mystical" MAs way more credit than they deserve. Just look at their XMA series which talked about Xtreme Martial Artists as if they were amazing warriors when in reality... they suck.

    In truth it sounds highly unlikely that you'll find any real Kallaripayyat in the US. Also, if you want to learn a MA the majority here would suggest against Capoiera as it really does not transfer over in a fight. Great if you just want to get in shape and learn rhythm though!

    I remember taking Copoiera classes for a week before I found out that it was a Martial Arts class and not a dance class.

    It was fun though, and worked up a sweat as you said. :)

    Any Western or Westernised MA (except weapon art) is mere thuggery compared to that kind of pedigree. What intelligent person with a thirst for knowledge wouldn't be drawn to it, given a nudge in the right direction?
    That was pretty asinine. EVERY culuture developed some form of MA. That doesn't really mean its worth a damn.

    What's funny about that comment is that thuggery was an Indian art of strangulation!
