Pehlwani – Indian Wrestling Martial Arts
Pehlwani students will join an Akhara (wrestling school) when they are young and then will spend years training under the guidance of a local instructor. In addition to learning wrestling techniques, students will spend many hours improving their strength and endurance. They often use traditional Indian strength training tools such as the Nal (a hollow stone cylinder with a handle), Gar Nal (neck weight), Indian clubs (exercise clubs), etc.
