My Karlakattai Journey:
Getting in touch with my roots and traditions, and learning about the benefits of Karlakattai Training, I was naturally drawn to this Ancient Warrior practice for body conditioning. I have been training with my Aasaan/Guru, Dr. Jothi Senthil Kannan from India for several years. I practice and teach every day and can see the positive effects of it in my daily activities as well as from my students.
On the 12th of December 2019, I set an Assist World Record for Karlakattai Idumban Suttru by completing 1860 Suttrus in 30 minutes.
My journey towards my mission has only just begun!
I founded Karlakattai Training U.K in early 2020 with the blessings of my Aasaan. It was founded with the intention of spreading this great traditional art and form of body conditioning to as many people as possible. Karlakattai Training U.K has positively impacted over 50 students and is organically growing worldwide each day.
Karlakattai Training U.K is affiliated to International Karlakattai Sports Federation and is bound by and follows the same principles, rules and teachings of the Gurukulam.
