What is Pekiti Tirsia Kali?

Pekiti Tirsia can be loosely translated as “to close in and cut into small pieces.” Kali is the indigenous blade-based martial art of the Philippines. It is recognized around the world for its deadly, efficient, yet graceful close quarters combat techniques.

The system was closely guarded and developed by the Tortal clan of Panay and Negros Occidental. The patriarch of the family, Conrado B. Tortal passed on his knowledge to his grandson, Grandtuhon Leo Tortal Gaje Jr., who is the present guardian and grandmaster of PTK. (retrieved: http://pekiti-global-city.com/what-is-pekiti-tirsia/)
