What Pekiti-Tirsia IS

A battle-tested combat system that teaches you how to protect yourself from a broad range of attacks and how to dominate the fight with weaponry against single or multiple attackers.

A great way to build cardiovascular endurance, lightning quick reflexes, and the specific body mechanics required in order to fight effectively with weaponry.

A traditional Filipino martial art that was and still is today validated in real close-quarters combat using edged weapons.

What Pekiti-Tirsia is NOT

A sport-focused martial art that emphasizes scoring points.

An eclectic blend of several existing martial arts.

An overly dogmatic and rigid style which does not address the reality of human conflict.
