“Martial arts of Kerala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We saw the show and were impressed. They did many different styles with different weapons. The fire ring show was cool.

“Very impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

When I went there I thought that they would just fake fighting and that it would be boring but I was wrong.They were good actors,gymnast and good fighters!You really believe that there were fighting!I think that if you go to Kerala you really need to try!

Watched the kathakali dance at the adjacent centre. Very good explanations of the dance form. Timing did not permit us to attend the Kalari performance.

“Awestruck - Total paisa vasool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Very impressive show! Worth the money. Display of ancient martial arts, with swords and knives, and an awesome display of agility. There is a sequence where performer jumps over 3-4 other performers bending down, they also call people from audience, which is even more fun!

Tip : No fans in the auditorium, closed space, tend to get hot, so wear clothes accordingly.

Cost : Rs. 300 per person

Caution : Avoid taking very small kids, they tend to cry
