Kamala Devam is teaching
beginners’ classes in an exciting martial art form from the Southern Indian state of Kerala called ‘Kalaripayattu’. This martial art is thought 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.
Now influencing dance choreography around the world, this martial art is beautiful and athletic, incorporating the fighting actions of animals found in India and moving in graceful, circular motions between fantastic kicks and flying jumps. Both young and adult students will become stronger, more flexible and have fun learning a new way of moving. No previous martial arts or dance experience is needed. Come, get sweaty and enjoy!
