Military Combat Art of the Philippines: Pekiti Tirsia Kali
Pekiti Tirsia Kali (PTK) is a martial art from the Central Philippines. This style incorporates weapons such as the sword, stick, and spear. There are also empty hand techniques and a grappling method called Dumog. PTK was introduced to the United States in 1972 by Leo T Gaje Jr. This system is taught to law enforcement and military groups around the world by its various instructors.
At the Wik Academy, we proudly teach PTK under the tutelage of Tuhon Leslie Buck. Our program maintains the tradition of PTK by focusing on the real world application of this art.
Students who attend class will develop the necessary mechanics to apply the armed and unarmed techniques that are presented in class. The student will start by learning the basic mechanic and principal of the technique. As learning progresses, students will be pressure tested ensuring that they are able to apply the techniques in a realistic manner.
