Kuttu Varisai or kutthu varesai (Tamil: குத்துவரி&# 2970;ை) is the unarmed component of silambam, a Dravidian martial art from Tamil Nadu in south India but also practiced by the Tamils of northeastern Sri Lanka and Malaysia. The term kuttu varisai means empty hand combat in Tamil and was first documented in Sangam literature of the 2nd-1st centuries BC. It is also called kai silambam which means hand silambam.

Kuttu varisai is used to improve footwork and athleticism through gymnastics, stretching, yoga and breathing exercises. Techniques incorporate striking, grappling, throws and locks. Strikes make use of almost every part of the body such as the fists, elbows, feet, knees, etc. Like many other Asian martial arts, patterns in kuttu varisai make use of animal-based sets including the tiger, snake, elephant, eagle and monkey forms. Advanced students are taught the art of pressure point fighting called Varma Kalai.
