The truth is that being the most ancient of all Asian Martial-arts, and the Mother Martial-art of many arts, Kalaripayat itself is a complete MMA and no further additions is needed as other martial arts trainers incorporate many arts in to their own.

Milestones in Bali Kalari History

Just IMMAGINE you have to pass through a solitary road in the dark and you have a bag or wallet full of real cash or precious ornaments, and you have to reach your destination very urgently and safely. But....on the way you are stopped by a couple of robbers with knives and short-stick, who ask you to hand-over the valuables and you don't know how to protect your valuables or yourself... you will be in a desperate situation. They will rob you, perhaps stab you or hit you on the head, injuring you, leaving you to bleed profusely on the dark street, unnoticed by anyone to assist you to take you to the nearest hospital. You grieve at heart as all your savings are lost! You might think you should have learned some tips or tricks in advance, to outcome the THUGS or ROBBERS...but now you are too late. Even if you are a Karate black-belt, deep down in your heart, an intense fear will rise, as there is no Weapon training taught in karate. So one won't stand a chance. This is where the importance of learning Kalaripayat Self-defence against weapon comes....as it it rich in weapon training of various types ranging from short-stick to long staff or Bo, single knife, double knives, axe, matchet/vettukathi, swords, spear, urumi or flexible sword, the katcha or towel, etc.

This is one true incident which occured at Kollam, in Kerala, India, when a married lady with two kids came to Mathew Gurukkal to learn self-defence, when a robber had broke in through the tiled roof of her home at Midnight, and she and her kids were alone at home. Her husband was away at Banglore in India for some business tour. She did not know any Self-defence tactics...and on the contrary...she was so terrifically panicked that she could not scream at all... to ask help from her neighbours. All the valuables in her house were lost. Finally after this incident she was wise to join for a training in Kalaripayat under Mathew Gurukkal. Would you want yourself to be in such a desperate situation?.....
Ofcourse..NOT! You haven't encountered such a situation...doesn't mean you are safe. You could be the next victim......

So what are you waiting for.........?

Kalaripayat is the Ancient Art having a tradition 5000 years old and its is the Mother Martial-Art of many Arts and in south Kerala ie, Tamilnadu it is known as Adi thada, Varma adi, Varma Kalai, or Adi Murai. You are given many free tips on Martial arts or the fighting arts of kerala, India. Varma adi or Adi mura is the self defence technique used for attacking the vital spots. Adi means hit and mura means the technique of applying the hit. Where as Adi thada is the different name used for the former and here Adi means the attack or hit and thada is the block or defence.

A detailed course on Yoga with
Training on Breathing Miracle &
Yoga healing
through Yogasanas are taught with various breathing techniques or pranayamas, most advanced mudras, meditation techniques or dhyanas, etc.

Beside our centre is keen on providing stunt directions for Action movies and Mathew Gurukkalwould like being occupied as an action director or doing Action direction. Already Gurukkal Mathew has directed up to 10 different varieties of CDs,VCDs(Volumes 1,2 and 3 and 3rd Volume of VCD/DVD is the most advanced one), DVDs of the same, Interactive Cds(3 vols combined), Marma-sastra Dvds(2 vols) etc on kalaripayattu.These VCDs or DVDs have already been sold worldwide in many countries. You can order for the Kalari Cds or Vcds in Mathew Gurukkal's email-ID or order through the site.

The most trust worthy student is taught names of more than 200 names (Botanical/Malayalam/ Tamil/Hindi) of Indian Herbal plants with its application in Ayurvedic or Siddha medicines, body massage techniques (panchakarma theraphy) or traditional physiotheraphy, preparation of Herbal oils(Enna or kuzhambu), etc.
As per Ayurveda scriptures there are 6000 herbal plants and as per Unani medicines there are 6500 Herbal plants or Herbs and as per Siddha medicine there are 7000 Herbal plants mentioned in the scriptures. Many of the Herbal plant are now unidentifiable and the number that can be identified is decreasing every generation due to lack of knowledgable Gurus. Siddha vaidhyam or siddha treatment was formed by the Dravidian ancient Yogis of Tamilnadu & it has more powerful and permanent cures for many disease like Diabetis, Cancer, Asthma, Ulcer, piles,Brain blood clotting, all Nervous or neural disorders(complaints), Autisam(autistic disorder or Aspergers syndrome), lunacy,leprosy,T.B, etc. In this modern age Siddha treatments are now on the rise as people have understood the powerful curative aspects. By using Ayurveda medicines one has to keep on taking medicine for a particular disease through out his life. Where as by 'Siddha vaidhyam'or Siddha chikitsa(treatment) one can permenantly cure any old incurable diseases in the shortest period of time than any branch of medicine. There are many wrong notions that siddha medicines have side effects or causes kidney problems or are dangerous, but these false rumours are spread by the so called allopathic counter parts and ayurvedic treating counter-parts against traditionally or holistic treating vaidhyans (doctors) to boost their on products. Mathew Gurukkal has effectively treated kidney patients with Ashmari(renal stones) using siddha bhasmas, and it has totally melted away in 3days time, giving 100% positive results. Few practitioners can cheat his patients for sometime but not forever. Now the patients are getting more aware of the Holistic treatments like Yoga, and knows the advantage of Ayurveda and the miraclaculous healing of Siddha medicines. Kalaripayattu, Yoga, Ayurveda, Siddha, Massage, Panchakarma treatments & Marma Chikitsa. These are all interconnected with one another & each one of them is an occean in itself, left for you to explore, if you are keen about them.
Best of Luck.
