The place itself is small and a little rickety, but when the performance starts you forget all that and just watch the kalari performers go about their routine. Some of the acts are very impressive.

Very old traditional martial art of Kerala is a must for the self defense with weapons or without weapon. Excellent skill work and judgement of self and the opponent to win over the opponent in given set of situation. A devotional yet disciplined attempt well done

Saw traditional dancing and singing. It was an interesting show but very amateur in nature. A good experience though!
