    I haven't found a folder for the martial arts of India in MT unless this would be the proper category. I do know in India there are some really interesting and fascinating martial arts so Im looking for the folder to discuss them and Im hoping this might be the folder.

    This is the right area.

    I can help you some with the southern Indian martial art of Kalaripayattu. My wife's family is from Kerala where it is from and when we have been there I had the opportunity to study a bit.

    Here is a blog post:

    India is a fascinating place because there hasn't been that much in depth research to what is actually there. I did two dvds on Kushti wrestling and have trained with many of the remaining masters of the ancient bare knuckle for a forthcoming project. I try to go yearly to further my own personal training.
