The Combat System of Butthan develops psychophysical capability for defending oneself effectively in unpredictable and dangerous situations without being unnerved. The strength of mind controls the strength of body. This control of the mind enables oneself to stand up to the challenges in life and disciplines one’s mind and body. Hence, It is different from competitive martial art practices, which basically aim at gaining points, belts, sashes, medals etc by exhibition of skill and performance on the mat. Apart from physical techniques, the disciplinarian, philosophical, ethical expressionistic and meditative aspects of Butthan Martial Arts are vital features for one's development.

The training of Butthan Martial Art causes the balancing of the chakras or energy centers and saptha dhatu (seven tissues in the human body—plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow and semen), stimulation of 'Nadisuthra' points according to the Indian ancient medical doctrine, working with vital points, and the awakening of 'Prana' or life. When the internal ability of the body fails to handle the stress ,the defense mechanism of the human body tends to become weak and gradually breaks down the system, making one prone to illness and disease. Butthan Martial Art teaches how to reduce tension and calms down the mind and develops mental alertness and attentiveness. By generating nourishment to the nerve systems along with the correct blood circulation it makes the body organs function efficiently, which can keep one disease free and in a state of positive health. As the body's system functions better, one’s physical and mental abilities become unavoidably greater too. This obviously necessitate development of body and mind which would respond and activate promptly and proportionately to the magnitude of requirements through logic. Through proper conditioning of human's fight or flight response the Butthan practitioners are capable of handling real life threatening situations confidently and effectively under the adrenal rush. Through various benevolent practices of this system, unwanted stress and strain can be eliminated to avoid psychophysical fatigue.

The unique Butthan system includes Dhayan(meditation) for Spiritual development and internal enlightenment in the light of ancient Indian-Tibetian mystical systems. It enables the student to master the balance, co-ordination and the principles of movement in space and to understand the continuous flow of energy in the body.

Using varying degrees of force to strike the body at different vital points, producing amazingly effective results and is a craft of the masters. When used by a trained expert, striking, slapping or touching the 'varmas' from various angles can cause instant death, slow death, paralysis or great pain. At same time a seriously injured person can be revived using 'varma' points, which are treated with massages, Siddha oils and herbal medicines. It is known that 'A timely touch, a slap or a gentle blow on specific 'varma' points can kill a person, or save a dying man.'
