testimonials from foreign practitioners


I had the chance to train Angampora with Guru Athula and I have been impressed not only by the physical condition of this old man, but also by the complete fighting system he introduced me.

Thanks to Guru Athula Nandana and Guru Piumal Edirisinghe of Angampora STIMA that shared their knowledge with me.

With the training being demanding and powerful I was able to learn a lot of different forms and techniques in a very short time. We many warrior yoga exercises, different locks/grips and also long stick forms. Thank you STIMA for a very good time. I hope to get the chance to visit you again.

I'm amazed by how much Guru was able to teach us in the training. The only thing I want to do now is practice more, and learn more about it.

I think here with Angampora the spiritual side still plays an important role which also was a reason for me to come here, because I wanted to see something which is more pristine compared to all the martial arts which are already largely focused on competition. Angampora is much more about the tradition, to unify spiritual with the bodily. In here Gurus teaches that spiritual and physical strength go hand in hand. The lessons learnt in the jungle and temple institutions are carried from not only the fighting pits but into the real world.

Training Angampora is more than just a technique. A complete form dedicated to growth in strength, focus, discipline and virtue. Guru Athula is a true Guru infinite gratitude for his teachings for his team Angampora STIMA .. and the pristine land we train on. Look forward to return and evolve in such USA and Colombia

I have heard about Angampora and had a training with Guru Athula and the STIMA. I am very pleased to have my training with these exceptional people and will be back for more. This form of martial art gives you peace of mind to achieve your goals. It is extremely direct and very useful in fighting. I do recommend practiced Angampora with STIMA.
