Silambam

Silambam

At Foundation level, students primarily learn a variety of stances, as well as defensive and offensive moves using the traditional bamboo stick. Once proficient with sticks, they will also learn how to use swords, knives, surul vaal (a curled steel whip), animal horns, sometimes fire and a variety of stances that mimic the movement of animals. Students learn how to rotate their stick up to thirty-two times in every direction as they work to achieve physical balance and the perfect mastery of body and space. All training sessions begin with a salutation to the four magnetic directions, whilst praying to Matha (mother), Pitha (father), Guru (master/teacher) and Deva (God).

Khutuvarisai

Khutuvarisai

Before learning Silambam and the use of ‘weapons', students first learn Kuthuvarisai, movements that use only the bare hands and feet. The aim is to achieve physical perfection through the practice of tharai padam (floor lessons). These exercises work on increasing stamina and energy, toning muscles and strengthening the nervous system. Students should practise Khutuvarisai for at least six months before they progress to Silambam.
