Kuṭṭanatrayāsana (कुट्टनत्रयासन) is a type of posture (āsana), according to verse 120 of the Śrītattvanidhi.—Accordingly, “Strike the arms. Strike the thighs. Strike the sides of the body and so on. Strike with the fist, the arm and the heel on the floor. This is kuṭṭanatrayāsana, the triple strike”.

The 19th-century Śrītattvanidhi is a sanskrit treatise describing 80 primary āsanas, or ‘posture’ and several additional ones (e.g., kuṭṭana-traya-āsana).

This is very similar to movements used by the wrestlers.
