Hi all,

This is a great a very useful forum! Will be moving to Bangalore in January and though I havent got an apartment yet, I'm looking to stay on airport road somewhere.

Just hoping I could get some recommendations or local knowledge of a places that do:

Boxing - is there an amateur / or boxing association in the area where I can train ?

Wrestling/Kushti/Pehalwaan - Any traditional akharas or modern western type wrestling gyms locally or short drive away?

Yoga - Ive read some posts already regarding this on here and there seems to be many! Shouldnt be a problem finding this.

Martial arts - Ive seen a kalaripayyatu school which i will visit, but this is different to the tekkan style of kalari i have done in the past. I am more interested in the mixed martial arts. Any ideas?

Thanks all, very excited about living in bangalore!

I dunno, you should try a search on this site on any of your keywords (and any of their possible spelling variations).

Queries so far on out-of-India martial arts or their lesser-known varieties haven't looked all that hopeful, but you'd think schools for them must exist.

I reckon straightforward stuff like boxing or karate or perhaps aikido shouldn't be hard to find.

On Kalari's, probably the best thread we have on it is here: Kerala Kalarippayattu .

Thanks, Ive done lots of research on google. I think the best thing is to reach out to the martial arts community when I arrive as they will know.

Yup, I reckon the one school should be able to point you on to another, etc. Could be quite the interesting little project in itself

Do let us know what you find out, it will be helpful to others.

Hi Kismet,

How is the martial arts situation in Bangalore, now that you're there?

I live in NYC right now, but there is a chance I will be coming to Bangalore for a year starting the middle of the year. I've trained Brazilian Jujitsu and Muay Thai here, and was very interested in continuing something real, live and pressure tested there. Was thinking of Kushti (Indian Wrestling) or Muay Thai/Boxing.

Where are the best places to train in Indian traditional wrestling?

Hey Kismet. I saw your postings and thought maybe you might be able to help me with my question. I'm a wrestler and am interested in planning a trip to India to train in Indian traditional wrestling. Do you know where the best places to train are? I was told that it's done mainly in the rural areas and not so much in the cities. If you or anyone else could even point me in the right direction of a particular region or place where it is done, or even better, a particular school, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Mod note : welcome to Indiamike. Please donot post similar queries in multiple threads. It confuses the members about which thread to reply to. Your three similar posts have been deleted.

kustee

Best place my research has found is to learn kustee in Benaras or Mysore. Plenty of Akharas to join and train at. I visted about 4-5 akharas in Mysore, there are many local ones to visit and train at.

North india its more popular and I believe Varanasi / Benaras has a lot more places.
