Martial art

Kalaripayat is the ancient martial art of Kerala (South India). The rich body language of kalaripayat is inspired by animal stances.

Kalaripayat helps to develop strength and flexibility, improves the physical and mental balance, and enhances the ability to concentrate.


Vallabhatta Brussels is a kalaripayat school in Belgium. Vallabhatta Brussels is part of the non-profit organisation PLOEF! - Plus On Est De Fous.

Before practicing armed combats (choregraphies), one has to master a series of animal stances, leg movements, rhytmic slaps and leaps.
