IMPACT ON CULTURAL PERFORMACES
Kalarippayattu has contributed greatly to the development of the well known classical and rural art forms like Kathakali, Theyyam, Koodiyattam and many other folk traditions. The training process in Kathakali has drawn considerably from Kalarippayattu in the methods of physical training and choreography where an actor uses his body as the basic medium of expression.

This concept of body training aimed at perfecting psychophysical integration has attracted considerable interest from dance circles even from western countries and they use this distinctive form in their dances, balle and theatre performances.
