Kalari & Kalari Acharyas

The meaning of the word Kalari is ‘an Institution to train the youth in Martial Arts using Weaponry'. The genre of martial arts practiced in the Kalari is known as Kalaripayattu. The villagers used to respectfully address the masters who trained their warriors in the Kalari as Kurup or Panicker. The Kings of Provinces also gave the salutation of Kurup / Panicker to these Aacharyas of Kalari. The term Aaacharya is to be understood as Master or “Guru of the Kalari”. After the medieval period even though there were teachers from many communities who were involved in training the youths in Kalaripayattu, the traditional community of Aacharyas who maintained Kalari and promoted Kalaripayattu were the Kurup/Panicker and later came to be known as Kalari Kurup / Kalari Panicker community.
