Pekiti Tirsia Kali

Pekiti Tirsia Kali is a martial art and self-defence system from the Philippines. It had been developed and passed on by the family of our grandmaster (Grandtuhon) Leo T. Gaje. Pekiti Tirsia Kali - short PTK - teaches the students to solve conflict situations. Evasion and escape, negotiating and creative problem solving are just as important as physical confrontation.

Pekiti Tirsia - for those who train

Pekiti Tirsia shall serve those who train it - not vice versa. High physical fitness, mental resilience, and combat skill are the result of our training, not the prerequisites. It is the trainer's task both to support and to challenge each student according to his or her own abilites. In return, Pekiti Tirsia demands the dedication to accept these challenges!

Pekiti Tirsia Kali developed as a family system of close quarter combat. Today, we still understand ourselves as a family - not bonded by blood, but by sweat and laughter. Hundreds of people train together under the roof of the Pekiti Tirsia Europe. Join our family!
The annual membership fee for the Pekiti Tirsia Europe is 42 €. Enrolled PTE members are allowed to decide themselves on the height of the contribution for attending seminars. The membership form can be downloaded here.
