Think Martial Art from India. What comes to mind?
Probably only a handful will think about Kalaripayattu. I too was unaware of this Indian martial art form till I visited Kerala sometime ago. An interesting fusion of yoga, dance, combat and performing arts, Kalaripayattu performances are a visual treat.
P.S. : I quickly checked on wikipedia and realized that Kalaripayattu is not the only martial art form practiced in India. Take a look here. How many of these did you know of?

Agreed, these are some amazing photos. Was this part of a broader cultural demonstration, or just an informal practice session (with flaming hoops)?
Thanks Chris. This was all part of a full fledged hour long performance.
