About Master & Gurukulam

Master Jothi Senthil Kannan

 A 7th generation warrior art Guru from an ancient lineage of Pallava kings of south India, an international performer and a referee, having 25 years of teaching experience in training close to a million students from over 35 countries in various fields like fitness, competitive sports, modern and traditional martial arts, combat and defence techniques, modern contemporary dance and ancient healing therapies. 

Grandmaster Jothi Kannan was trained since the age of 5 by his paternal grandfather, a warrior guru himself in ancient traditional Indian warrior arts like Silambam (weapons training), Karlakattai (Indian Club rotations), archery, Malyutham (grappling), Varmakalai (warrior art discipline involving vital body points) and Kuthuvarisai (hand-to-hand combat). He was also thoroughly trained in an ancient medicinal practice called Siddha Medicine by his maternal grandfather.  As of today, Grandmaster Jothi Kannan runs probably the only Kshakthiriya Gurukulam (Warrior School) in India to preserve and spread the art of ancient Indian warriors.

About Gurukulam

Master Jothi established his gurukulam on 12 Dec 1996 on his 20th birthday. At that time gurukulam was only a 60*27 feet marble platform with no roof or walls. At that time he had 4 karlakattai and a batch of 7-8 students.

As of today, it is probably the only Kshatriya Gurukulam (warrior school) in India, which is run to preserve and spread the art of ancient Pallava warriors.
