Churikapayattu

Churikappayattu is a kind of fight in which combatants use a knife-like weapon.  It finds frequent mention in Vadakkal paattukal.  It comes up for praise in the Father of modern Malayalam, Thunchath Ezhuthachan’s works Aadhyaatma Ramayanam and Mahabharatam.  But churikappayattu does not enjoy a fan following among the youth of today.
