Mallakhamb Sports Academy
Mallakhamb is a traditional Indian sport in which a gymnast performs Ariel Yoga poses in concert with a vertical, stationary or hanging wooden pole, or hanging rope.
Mallakhamb can be traced back to the 12th Century where it is mentioned in the classic "MANASOLHAS" (1135 A.D.). For about seven centuries after that, the art form remained dormant until renowned teacher of Peshwa, BALAMBHATTA DADA DEODHAR, introduced it as the supportive exercise for wrestling. Its original status as a supporting exercise for wrestlers was changed into competitive Mallakhamb by Late P. V. Bane Guruji.
Maharashtriya Mandal's contribution in Mallakhamb has always inspired others. Our beloved sir, Late Ramesh Damale, tried his best for the same. Due to his efforts, Maharashtriya Mandal opened 20 Mallakhamb Training Institutes which are taken care by well-trained coaches in and around Pune city.
