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.
