It is a millennial martial art of South India, it is said to have originated more than 4000 years ago and to be the mother of martial arts. Its origin and practice is connected to that of Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India and to yoga with which it shares a common vision of man as a union of mind, body and spirit. Traditionally, kalaripayattu is taught from master to disciple through the gurukull system, which requires the student to live for long periods at home with the master. So it was for our teacher at the Indian teacher Jaya Chandran Nair of Trivandrum, Kerala.

Kyem organizes seminars of  Kalaripayattu in Italy, Europe and India. The study of Kalaripayattu also leads us to acquire the ability to use and manipulate fiery tools (sticks / chains etc ..). Inspired by this ancient discipline we have created performances and shows. Read more about Antares Fuoco
