Our History

Style specific to Fillipino Martial Arts

Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is a style specific to Fillipino Martial Arts. Pekiti-Tirsia Kali was founded in 1897 and is the system of the Tortal family. The sole heir and guardian of this system is Leo Tortal Gaje, Jr. who is referred to as the Grand Tuhon. Pekiti-Tirsia is a combat-oriented system, as opposed to sport-focused, style. It is a fighting system that focuses on the knife and machete/sword for killing and has been adopted by elite Philippine military and law enforcement units.

Pekiti-Tirsia’s movements are based on the traditional blade art of the Philippines – Kali, which involves slicing swords in a circular motion.

Pekiti-Tirsia International System of Kali is comprised of 5 main weapons categories:

  • Solo – Single stick, sword or spear.
  • Doble – Double stick or sword.
  • Espada y Daga – Sword and Dagger.
  • Daga y Daga – Knife to Knife (both single and double).
  • Mano y Mano – Hand to Hand.

Pekiti-Tirsia International is based on 3 principles:

3 Ranges – You are taught Close Range first as this is the most dangerous and difficult to master; then Medium, and finally Long.

3 Levels – Along with every attack you are taught several counters to that attack, as well as several recounters to each counter. You develop the ability to think at least 3 levels ahead in a fight.

3 Opponents – You are taught to be prepared to fight at least 3 opponents; therefore, you don’t spend too much time on any one opponent.
