«The art of the living past in modern times»
Pekiti Tirsia Kali is an ancient Filipino martial art that has evolved to stay relevant for modern combat and self-defense scenarios. With its tactics and strategies derived from edged weapons, it is a complete system incorporating both weapons and empty hands methods. The roots of the system lead to the Tortal family from Negros Occidental, Philippines, who kept it as a secret until the 1970s to protect their lives, land and property. Since then, the art influenced several other martial arts and combat systems.
