THOPPAI KARLAI style – 4.5 to 6kg single walnut club


Single thoppai karlai, karlakattai-style Indian club. Designed to develop strength around the core, as in the southern Indian traditional martial art of body conditioning. The club is 480mm long and only suitable for those with prior experience of karlakattai practice. We always advise starting off with smaller clubs due to the high repetitions and necessity to refine your technique with lightest size first, regardless of your peceived strength. Each karlakattai club is turned in stunning walnut wood and finished with a nourishing oil blend finish.
Weight: 4.5 to 6kg | Length: 480mm
NB. Karlakattai clubs traditionally have a thicker grip diameter – as compared to regular Indian clubs or Persian meels –and this adds to their level of effort required.
Weights vary, so if you prefer heavier or lighter end of the weights, please let us know during check-out.

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 help the charity as well as their tree planting. Due to the nature of wood there is a variation in density and colour. Sold as single club.

These clubs are sourced from solid walnut logs and as such, carry a risk of small cracks appearing. These are considered cosmetic and can be easily fixed using wood glue. Should your clubs display excessive splitting, then please let us know if this happens and we can work out a solution. Follow this link for inforation on care and maintenance.
