The ancient martial arts of Kalaripayattu being practiced and performed by children, women and men from across the country. The competition is divided into three categories: sub junior, junior and senior, to accommodate students between the age group of six to forty five years. The competition has six events namely, Meipayattu (exercises demonstrating control over the body), Chuvadukal (demonstrating offense and defence steps), Kaipooru (free hand combat), Sword and Shield combat, wielding the Urumi (routine with flexible sword) and Chouti pongal (high kick). 


The Karnataka Kalaripayattu Association, a thriving body of Kalaripayattu learning in Karnataka, is spearheaded by Sri Krishna Prathap (Hon.Secretary General of K K A) who leads the various teams for the championship. This year, twenty nine students- both men and women- of different ages, and professional backgrounds  will form the Karnataka contingent. 



Last year, the National Championship was held in February, 2017 in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. The Karnataka contingent had also participated and won a number of medal, securing an overall second place for the team. This year, the team has been training harder and hope to win many more medals at the Championship. 


When people talk of martial arts it is generally assumed that men are the main participants. But that is no more the case with many women taking on this ancient martial arts in this modern age. One is reminded of the popular legendary warrior and heroine Attummanammel Unniyarcha from the famous Puthooram Veedu of North Malabar. She has definitely been an inspiration for many women throughout history who aspire to learn and practice Kalaripayattu, an art that is only growing stronger by the day.
