    If my martial history is correct, I believe Kalaripayattu is some sort of derivative of Shastar Vidiya:

        I think it woul dbe impossible to beat them, for sure you could never grapple them.
        If you saw the show, you would have seen them rub oil all over their bodies, can't grapple an oil slick !!!!!
        Maybe that is the answer to grappling and BJJ, drench your self in cooking oil !!!!!!!!

          What if I'm just really sweaty? Will that make me a better UFC fighter?

              One thing for sure those kalarypayattu gus are really flexible. Maybe I ought to take up Hatha yoga to condition up my body.
              I hope to see something on East Indian/South Asian wrestling???

                    The lady hosting the show was simply one of those fools who are easily persuaded by cooperated, predictable and unrealistic attack that is countered by graceful and uncontested motions ... funny she is a student of Aikido where you commonly see chosen attackers to attack with a wrist grab and intentionally hold on and throw there own bodies around that is abided by desire to emphasize effectiveness and not by the defenders actual physical manipulation. The lady doesnt seem well trained in any system of martial arts. Shes a twig and emphasizes profficiency where it isnt merited as far as combat application is concerned.

                    To sum up all that was said in regards to the system of Capoiera... The concept of "Trickery" or being unpredictable in attack and how to do the jinga. She discovered the concept of "trickery"in Capoiera in the midst of a conversation about "trickery with the old man who randomly tripped her in the process of his lecture on "trickery". Nothing beyond that was informative besides speaking about the culture and history of the brazilian people and the existence of capoiera... If you ask me that old man she was following around was so disoriented when he and the other teacher were in the midst of exchanging attacks... If I hadn't known about Capoiera before this ... I would say that Capoiera is plain stupid and misguided as far as percieving what to expect in combat.

                    The indian Martial Arts portion was a bit better, although the lady seemed to have little to say as far as effectiveness was concerned. She just abided to moving the way she was told to move and was never offered much explanations. Most of the movements were so unecessary i.e. slapping the ground, grossing arms agaisnt body while samaeltaneously shifting upper torso forward in a grounded stance, the waving of limbs inn the midst of moving the torso in directions (it was wierd)... My descriptions are poor, but there was plenty of motion that just seemed damn unecessary. Overall, I thought the art had some things to offer, but I've seen more in my year and a half of studying the FMA's, if anyone has seen sumbrada... it was all they seemed to do. They had some cool blind folded demonstrations of sumbrada and some blindfolded melon chopping where this one student alomost chopped the arm off one other student. LOL. The lady was just amazed by the fact that it was different - perpetuating the mentality of all bullshidoists.

                    Lets see what happens next episode.
