The Angampora practice exposes the practitioner to a variety of  unique and versatile training regimes. Intensity is imperative in Angampora and training makes physically stresses tendon strength over muscle strength.

ART OF LIVING

Angampora can teach us how to live. It teaches us how to encounter each moment with open eyes, open mind, posture and tenacity. This makes Angampora the perfect foundation for a self-determined and healthy life in the modern world.
