This group does not have any discussions yet.
A suggestion for the group admin. Perhaps links to other PTK umbrella organizations can be added in the "website" section above. Unfortunately, there has been a ton of political junk that has taken place in the past, but it would be nice if this group could stay way from that and promote all PTK of legit origin (PTK Alliance, PTGO, PTI, etc.), regardless of affiliation. Just a thought.
IF anyone else has a youtube post it up here so we can help spread the Pekiti word!!!

I love the empty hand. Im not a striker. i love getting off the line and chopping people and smashing using elbows it protects my knuckles. Im obsessed with guntings.
Ben nice job brother!! PTK can be some what frustrating at times but, that frustration means you're investigating the system and it's about getting through it. Just keep at it, train everyday, at classes and on your own time. Since it's been a little while on this post how has your training come along since April/May?
Well done Ben for sticking with it....sometimes, as an Instructor there is an awareness that the PTK "base" - footwork & striking mechanics can be unusual, hard work..and dare I say even somewhat boring at first to the new student....(though I hope and am sure that youve managed to pick up a lot of interesting and combat practical knowledge on the way so far as well) now youve stuck with it, welcome to the Tirsian fold.....it just gets better and better from here mate, Mabuhay! Tony, PTK Dubai
Thanks Paul. I finally understand triangles and the footwork. trust me I quit for two months but something told me to stick with it. now I'm am intermediate.
What is it that draws you to Pekiti-Tirsia Kali over other systems or styles? Thought it would be nice to hear others drives!
Ben, since it's been some time now since your posting on tire training I thought it would be interesteing to know w=how your training is coming along! Let me know.
Ben- Paul said that right!!, watch out for the reverb!!...Start with the diagonal and horizontal strikes as suggested, gain confidence in your striking angles, speed and power development, then add footwork. (basic 45 degree footwork at first). Then add broken st to the fluid strikes and footwork...happy training!!!
