 In a unique collaboration between United States of America and India, and under the leadership and vision of Aditya Satsangi, founder and CEO of Nitai Partners, along with taekwondo expert Abhai Singh Rathore, KalariPro was launched here on Thursday to revive the ancient martial art of India: Kalaripayattu. Satsangi said that Kalaripayattu is the origin of all martial arts.

"We want to revive the ancient martial art of India and that is Kalaripayattu. People don't know that our country is origin of all martial arts. It came from the south region of our country. It's an amalgamation of all martial arts and it is believed that father of Kalaripayattu is Karthik (son of lord Shiva). What we aim to do is bringing the professional martial art culture into our tradition martial art. In Korea, in all their martial arts, they pay homage to India. They respect Indians like anything because they are aware of the fact that it's the origin place for martial arts," said Aditya.

MP of Rajya Sabha, Subramanian Swamy said he was happy to see that Kalaripayattu was getting the much-needed economic push.
