Pekiti Tirsia Kali, also known at PTK, is a complete fighting system that centers in edged weapons (mostly knives) and impact weapons (sticks and blunt objects) as well as empty hands or unarmed combat.
In addition to knives and sticks, the human body is considered as a weapon in Pekiti Tirsia Kali. Fists, palms, arms, knees, and feet are all used for striking.
PTK focuses on practicality over theatrics. This is a no-nonsense fighting system designed for survival against multiple opponents. The art was used for warfare during ancient times.
Unlike sport oriented martial arts, PTK uses unconventional fighting methods like biting, grabbing, and spitting: anything it takes to win the fight. It’s quick, decisive, and severe.
