According to puranic stories, Varmakalai was born in a sea when a war broken out between Lord Siva, Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu for their over lordship. During the war, Lord Vishnu became unconscious. Lord Brahma applied adangals to him and soon he was recovered.
In the beginning Lord Brahma created this world, very soon it had been occurred many transformations of itself by the evolution of five elements or pancha-boothas (water, air, fire, earth and ether) and its attraction. As a result Varmam also appeared. It was handed over from Parvathi to Nandhi deva, then to Dhanvanthri and provided it to Lord Muruga. He provided it to agasthiyar, agasthiyar to bogar and then to siddhars. Siddhars followed this.
The origin of this great art was mixed with puranic stories. Once it was a kind of martial art with full of techniques known as Varma adi or Varma attack. In the beginning, it was used as medicine but it was also used as a defensive art Kung-fu, Kalaripayattu and Silambam and took changes from time to time.
