Service Description

Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is a highly effective close-quarters fighting system. It is one of the oldest Martial Arts of the Philippines. Indigenous to the Visayan region; PTK originated within the Negros Occidental province. This fighting science is considered one of the best and most complete Combative Systems today. ​For more than 300 years It was used by Filipino “Indios” against the ruling Spanish regime. In those times the Filipino Martial Arts were banned, and the carrying of a bladed weapon by Filipinos was strictly prohibited by the Spanish military. If caught, the offender(s) would be imprisoned. In response, the Filipinos replaced the use and carrying of any edged weapons with rattan sticks, and practiced in secrecy, and even hidden it in dance and other performing arts. Hence, this fighting art was kept alive to the present day.​ Based on tactics and strategies derived from edged weapons, Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is a complete system that incorporates both weapons and empty hands methods. Pekiti-Tirsia is an ancient art that has evolved to stay relevant for modern combat and aggressive self-defense scenarios. Developed for use against single and multiple attackers. Pekiti-Tirsia is proven effective in combat, and is invaluable for preparing Operators of the law enforcement and military community. In the country of origin, Pekiti-Tirsia has become the only system recognized by the Philippine government, as the basis for the official combative programs of their Armed Forces; Including the elite Force-Recon Marine battalion and Philippine National Police.
