Spring, 2015 - Kalaripayattu with Kamala Devam

Kamala Devam will be teaching an exciting martial art form from the South Indian state of Kerala called "Kalaripayattu". This martial art is little-known in the Bay Area and is claimed to be the mother of all others including karate and kung fu, brought from India to other parts of Asia by Buddhist monks in the 4th century. Often called "Kalari" for short, this movement language is similar to dancing in its beauty and athleticism, incorporating the fighting actions of animals found in Indian jungles and moving in graceful, circular motions between fantastic kicks and flying jumps. Students will become stronger, more flexible and have fun learning a completely new way of moving!
