Traditional Indian Club Training

Posted on Wednesday, September 14th, 2016 by John Wood
The swinging of “jori and gada” (heavy Indian clubs and maces) holds a special place in the ancient art of Kushti – (Traditional Indian Wrestling and Physical Culture Training.)

In the akharas (wrestling gyms) these traditional implements are decorated in many unique ways. Some are painted with lively decorative patterns, others, used only by the most skilled masters, are studded with nails. Some of these decorative Indian clubs weigh as much as 35kg (about pounds.)
