Guests would be able to watch the stunts like chattom (jumping), ottam (tunning), and marichil (somersault) including weapons like daggers, swords, spears, and bows. Kalarippayattu training aims at the ultimate coordination of the mind and body, which also includes their indigenous medical practice. Kalaris are also centres of religious worship.
