Dance with Flames 

Kalaripayattu or kalari is a martial art which has its origins in the early 13th century AD (nearly 3000 years old) in Kerela. 

Crafted in ancient South India it basically draws inspiration from the raw power and sinuous strength of the majestic animal forms from Lion,Tiger,Elephant,Wild Boar,Snake & Crocodile. 

Some say it is considered to be the oldest fighting system in existence. Kung-fu, popularized by the monks of the Shaolin Temple traces its ancestry to Bodhi Dharma – an Indian Buddhist monk and Kalaripayattu master. 

Incredible India!!!
