Description

Martial arts weren’t really my thing until I began to study - My only other relevant qualifaction are the 10 years of fieldhockey I played when I was between 9 and 19 years old. Back then I also used sticks to hit stuff, there was the occasional brawl, and I thrived to become faster, stronger and fitter.
In my second semster at the university, I searched for a contact sport to burn some energy and by sheer chance stumbled into a Pekiti Tirsia course. The next one and a half hours of this first exercise managed to install an addiction in me that is still flourishing. Pekiti Tirsia, for some reason still unknown to me, immediately made sense and until this day I never felt the need to train anything else.
