Pair of 2.5kg (5.5 lbs) BD-X crossover clubs. These clubs were developed through a collaboration with zurkhaneh trained Tom Crudgington of Body Development to create a cross-over club that works both as a heavy Indian club as well as an entry level Persian meel. The shape closely resembles the Buja Karlai club swung in the Indian Karlakattai traditional martial art. Each club is 580mm long, turned in stunning walnut wood with nourishing oil finish.

Each club is hand-turned from a single piece of walnut timber by craftsman within a charity organisation that supports over 400 villages in southern India, whom BMF supports. In addition, we donate 10% of production costs to the charity.

  1. Steve

    The long handle makes these perfect for single-club work where you’re passing the club from hand to hand (like you would with a karlakattai). Also, the overall length is just right, especially for short people like me: I can do straight-arm pendulum swings without whacking my feet!

    Plus the wood is gorgeous, as always.

    Thick handle, very well balanced.

    A great substitute for persian Meels if you think 2kg are a bit too lightweight and 3 kg could be a bit too much.
    I use them for heavy club excercises as well as for the classical Persian Meels movement of lifting them behind the back; I am 57 years old and weigh 74 kg.

    And of course I use them instead of steel clubs swinging – feeling much better.

    The pair I received is very well balanced, say the weight difference is very, very small.
