The training programme is designed by Agustyam International led by Dr S Mahesh Gurukkal. “This martial art helps in improving the mental and physical health of a person and also gives more concentration, courage and confidence,” says Dr S Mahesh Gurukkal. He also pointed out that Kalari has several health benefits like controlling blood flow, heartbeat, breathing and metabolism.

The employees at ACSIA who participated in the training programme said that the Kalari training helped them maintain physical fitness and create a good relationship with co-workers.
