Pekiti-Tirsia Kali (PTK) :

The Pekiti-Tirsia Kali system is close quarters and in-fighting system dating back to 1897, which is the oldest Filipino Martial Art that is used in today’s modern world for combat training. The Pekiti-Tirsia Kali system originates from the province of Negros Occidental in the Philippines, formulated by the Tortal family of Negros and Panay islands.  The family patriarch, Conrado B. Tortal, passed the system onto his only grandson Grand Tuhon Leo Tortal Gaje, Jr. 

Tuhon Tim Waid began his training in the same system with Grand Tuhon Gaje in 1988.  His passion has been to learn, study, and master the authentic Pekiti-Tirsia Kali system. Tuhon Tim Waid is the only Pekiti-Tirsia Kali Instructor certified by Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje in the original authentic Pekiti-Tirsia Kali sub-systems of Doce Methodos, Contradas, and Contra-Tirsia.

Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is the most complete, advanced, and effective system of Filipino Martial Arts in existence today. The Pekiti-Tirsia Kali System is close quarters, in-fighting, true combat blade fighting system that employs all-edged, impact weaponry, empty-hands combat, that integrates seamlessly with the use of modern firearms making this system both ancient and modern. Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is proven effective in combat and indispensable for today’s heroes of the law enforcement and military community.
