Kalarippayat (kalaripayat, kalarippayattu, kalaripayatu) is an ancient physical, cultural and martial art of Kerala, which was in prevalence from time immemorial. It is primarily an art of physical culture, well developed in a most scientific way. It aims at giving a practitioner of the art, perfect control over his body balance, flexibility, stamina and speed, and perfect neuro-muscular co-ordination, an ability of the body to react instinctively to the senses.

The uniqueness of this art is the knowledge about the Marma and the treatment based on this named Marma Chikitsa
