Now a dying art preserved only by a few remaining masters but slowly rediscovered, Kalarippayat was once a way of life in Kerala, and every 6-8 year old child – regardless of sex, caste or religion – would be initiated to the practice at the beginning of the annual rainy season. 

Often refered to as the “Tantra Yoga of Martial Arts”, Kalari is not simply a martial art and a healing art, but one of the oldest forms of human movement transmitted and still alive today. Its fierce physical sequencing is deeply wired into our evolutionary consciousness, ultimately aiming at balancing our male and female aspects on a psychophysical level.
Kai found Kalari in early 2004, looking for an effective set of excercises to help recovery from a slip disc syndrom. inspired by the healing he felt in his body, he embarked on his first trip to India, starting his studies under Kalari Gurukkal CM Sherif of Kannur. Kai has been passing on the art ever since 2005, and his lessons are characterized by years of experience with various movement arts and their underlying philosophies.
In addition to being a Senior Instructor of Kerala Kalarippayat Academy (KKA), Kai is a Hatha Yoga and AcroYoga Teacher, as well as an AYFit instructor. Together with Lucie Beyer, he runs their studio SUTRA COLLECTIVE in Hamburg, Northern Germany.
