The ancient Indians knew that the sun and the moon are approximately 108 times their respective diameters from the earth. This knowledge was coded into temple architecture, in the 108 poses of Indian classical dance, and the 108 prayer beads of the japa mala. Bodhidharma, a Buddhist monk from India, introduced Kalari into China and Japan in the 5th century. He taught this art in a temple This temple is today known as the Shaolin temple. The Chinese called him Po-ti-tama. What he taught has evolved into Karate and Kung Fu
The king is the representative of God on earth, and that he is entrusted with the difficult task of leading the people through the delicate balance between material prosperity and spiritual consciousness.
This argument can be better understood by reading "The Ksatriya Principle". Apparently, the king, to be qualified to carry out its task, must be a great expert on kala-vidya (Martial art) and bhakti yoga (the highest form of yoga).
All the Vedic knowledge, including martial arts, was kept by the brahmanas (the priests) which in turn taught Vedic science to the society according to the quality of each individual.
The brahmanas knew the secrets of martial arts, but, however, could not practice them because of their vow of non-violence. They used to teach this knowledge to the ksatriyas, that, on the contrary, could use violence for a good cause. Just causes were defending the elderly, women, children, cows, defenseless animals, the innocent, the weak, and many other categories as mentioned in the moral code.
So the martial art was always taught to kings, princes and their armies in all the dynasties of the anchient India, because those belonging to the warrior caste of the Kshatriyas, were considered the administrators and protectors of the people. Thus the martial art has been able to spread all over the world for several causes. First of all, for the control of all the land by some emperors of India. These include the Emperor Anaranya and his descendants as Dasarath and Sri Rama, the ideal king, the glorious Prithu Maharaja, Maharaja Rishabadeva, Emperor Bharata (whichfrom the Earth took the name of "Bharata-varsa"), Emperor Pandu and its successors, as the son of Maharaja Yudhisthira and his nephew, the last great emperor, Maharaja Pariksit. All of these great empires and many others had established the Vedic culture of the Aryan race in the whole of India and in territories outside India. We find example in Thailand, and others, whose monarchical culture and religion come from India.

Song of the Sip Sam Seh(Thirteen Principles)
"Never neglect any of the Sip Sam Seh. The source of the will is in the waist. Pay attention to the slightest change from full to empty. Let energy flow through the whole body continuously. Stillness embodies motion, motion stillness. Seek stillness in motion.
Surprising things will happen when you meet your opponent. Give awareness and purpose to every movement. When done correctly all will appear effortless. At all times pay attention to the waist. Relaxed clear awareness of abdomen, the energy can be activated. When the base of spine is erect, energy rises to the top of the head.
The body should be flexible. Hold the head as if suspended from a string. Keep alert and seek the meaning and purpose of your art. Bent and stretched, open and closed, let nature take its course.
Beginners are guided by oral teaching. Gradually one applies himself more and more. Skill will take care of itself. What is the main principle of the martial arts? The mind is the primary actor and the body the second one. What is the purpose and philosophy behind the martial arts? Rejuvenation and prolonging of life beyond the normal span. So an eternal spring.
Every word of this song has enormous value and importance. Failing to follow this song attentively, you will sigh away your time.

Your state of real power can only be maintained within certain parameters of your breath, if you breathe in or out too far, then you will weaken your power considerably. Your opponent should not be able to detect your breathing cycle so that he will not know when to attack, at the moment of contact contrary to popular thought you should practise a "stopped breath", so that you can apply power whether you are breathing in or out. You should practise "abdominal breathing" and breathe through the nose (flaring the nostrils) so that your opponent is unable to detect your breathing cycle and to maintain your power. Keep your power in your lower abdomen and always leave a third of your breath in the body, pace your movement so that you don't change from "fight" to "flight" and weaken yourse

Kalari Payat Martial Arts
There are 108 marmas in a human body of which 64 are mainly used during fights. Hitting these marmas with bare hands, elbows or even pressing with fingers can freeze or disable certain parts of the body, can make a man unconscious. There are many techniques to make it back normal, these are scientifically described in the kalari texts .
India too has numerous martial arts, kalaripayattu of Kerala being the most well-known among them. The highest stage of kalaripayattu is marmaadi, based on the knowledge of the body's marma (vital) points. The human body is believed to have 26 meridians through which prana or chi flows. Marma points, over a hundred, are located on these meridians. When pressure is applied on a marma point, the prana flow alters. The key lies in the degree of force used. A forceful blow on a marma point might lead to paralysis or even death. Less pressure applied in a particular way on the same point will induce healing by correcting the prana flow, as done in marma chikitsa, practiced in Kerala.

In Dragon style Kung Fu, power is believed to emanate from the waist. Because the waist is the largest muscle in the body(something not everyone is particularly proud of)and the only one cross-hatched in three different directions,it is considered the best source of physical power. Most people use the strength of their upper bodies and shoulders. But Dragon style Kung Fu teaches people how to draw energy from the waist and manifest it through their hands and feet.
