Malyutham is a grappling martial art that was practiced throughout Tamil history of ancient Tamilakkam which resembles western wrestling. It is placed among the 64 arts listed in ancient literature. The artreached its Zenith in Tamil Nadu during the Pallava period.
During mid-Chola period mallas(artistes) went to Sri Lanka to participate in tournaments. The art was taught in ancient days by persons belonging to the Malliga Chetty community.
Here, the opponents wrestle with each other, attempting to push the other down. Various rules of the gameapply to the procedure. In a tournament, wrestlers travel far and wide, challenging local wrestlers, and if they win, the name and fame of their own town or area is multiplied hundredfold.
