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.

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 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!

Comment by Paul Ingram - Kali Center on April 16, 2013 at 8:59pm

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.

Comment by Tony Whittington on August 27, 2012 at 4:42pm

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!!!
