Pahlavandle TG: an adjustable thick grip mudgar

Our adjustable Pahlavandle TG has a thick handle that is long enough to be swung single and/ or double handed. The design and functionality are based on traditional Indian clubs.

Mudgar/ Mugdar (or even Mugdal) is the Hindi word for a club, while Karlakattai is the Tamil word for it. This type of club offer a great diversity of exercises.
Out of the 64 types of Karlakattai suttrus  (swings) in Tamil culture, only 4 are done with double clubs, like Persian meel swings. 10 of those swings are done with both hand on a single club.  The rest are done single handed, often time switching hands from side to side as 1 repetition.

Filling your Pahlavandle TG

Fill it to your desired weight, tighten the butterfly nut securely, and you’re ready to swing!
Watch the video below where Ron shows you how it is done.

Do not fill the Pahlavandle TG with liquids, use only dry fillers: wood pellets, rice, sand, gravel, metal nuts and bolts, steel shot, etc…

Starting weight

We recommend wood pellets for beginners. By filling the tube to its max capacity, your mudgar will weigh 4kg.

The traditional recommendation is to start with a club that weighs no more than 1/16th of your own bodyweight for 6 months, before adding weight.

You can safely swing the Pahlavandle TG even though the material may slosh about in the tube. To secure the fillers in place, try stuffing a towel in the tube.

Thick grip training

You must condition your grip progressively, and never jump into training exclusively with thick handles, or you may experience tennis elbow symptoms.

The handle of the Pahlavandle TG is straight, with a very small pommel to respect the structural alignment of your wrist when swinging.

3 essential safety tips

  • Always inspect your equipment before you train.
  • Always take a 360 degree space check around you before you start your workout, as clubs can hit things or fly out of your grip.
  • Always train within your capacities, listen to your body, and use common sense.

Materials and finish

We use recycled and sustainable materials  in the production of the Pahlavandle™ TG. Therefore the actual look and color might be slightly different from the pictures on our website.

The handle is made of reclaimed mahogany hardwood. The rest of the wooden parts are made of bamboo, “the miracle hardwood”. We utilize bamboo for its beautiful grain patterns and amazing stability which results in no wood cracks, unlike many other woods used for Indian clubs. 

The core of the club is a hollow pipe made from reclaimed plastic.

The wood is finished with high quality Danish oil as it provides a better grip and a more natural feel in the hands.

You can care for your Mudgar by oiling it from time to time. The traditional oil mixture for coating Karlakattai is 3 parts castor oil and 1 part neem oil. Wipe off with a rag, and wait for a few hours before training.

  1. Grumpy (verified owner)

    Excellent communication and support following a problem to place my order.
    I took both the 70 and 85 model. They arrived in less than 48 hours after I place my order.
    I really like the finish on these, they look like they are a quality products.
    The handle is thicker than a steel mace or club. After having swung both Pahlavandle (70 and 85) I can already tell they will challenge me in a different way and will complement well the tools I already have.
