Angampora is a martial art from Sri Lanka. It combines combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise and meditation. Key components in angampora are: angam, which incorporates
hand-to-hand fighting, and illangam, which uses indigenous weapons such as the ethunu kaduwa, staves, knives and swords. Another component known as maya angam, which uses spells and
incantations as a fighting technique is also said to have existed. Its most distinct feature is the use of pressure point attacks to inflict pain or permanently paralyze the opponent.
Fighters usually make use of both striking and grappling techniques, and fight until the opponent is caught in a submission lock that they cannot escape.
