HELLO

We, at Kshetra Kalari, are skilled practitioners of this secretive and revered martial arts form. Trained under the legendary E.P. Vasudeva Gurukkal, we follow the more evolved Vadakkan style of Kalarippayattu. With fully equipped learning and healing centres in Kerala, Pondicherry and Switzerland, we have a combined experience of over 50 years and counting. Kshetra is evolved from the Sanskrit root Kshi, which denotes good yield. While we thank our forefathers for preserving and passing on this precious knowledge, we realise it is our duty to hand it over to those who would follow in our footsteps. For knowledge is the only weapon that will endure.
