SBS Radio Hindi Podcast – “India’s Amazing Martial Art Kalarippayat”


“The philosophy of Kalarippayat in general is that of Yoga. It can be summed up in the theory of Dharma-Yudha (War of Duty/Truth). 
Dharma-Yudha is symbolised in the ritual practised in Kalarippayat of touching the floor of the Kalari, or the right hand of the master (in a form of hand-clasp) with the right hand, then touching one’s own chest and head (heart and mind). This stands to signify that the fight should only be initiated by the mind if the heart approves of it.” Kalari artist – John Paul Cassie
