List of Indian Martial Arts Styles

This section provides details about martial arts styles from India. It covers Indian martial arts such as Gatka, Kalaripayattu, Niyuddha and many more. Many Indian martial arts styles incorporate weapons training (esp. with swords and spears) as they were originally developed in order to train soldiers hundreds of years ago.

If you think a style should be added to this page, please contact us. However, we will only accept martial arts styles that have many schools (10+) & an active style association/federation and/or a detailed Wikipedia page. For the styles of other countries (i.e. Japan, China, Korea and Brazil), please visit the main Martial Arts Styles section.
