  • Attack Across the Bridge

    Close the distance, then strike the opponent

    Know and Understand that any method, tactic, or technique that does not provide simultaneous protection from strikes and attacks IS NOT EFFECTIVE.

    WHY any Tactic, Skill, or Techniques is effective in training and combat:

    1. Ahead of Time – you move and strike ahead of time and without being hit.
    2. In the Superior Position – movement and maneuver to a position of advantage with superior protection and the opponent exposed to more strikes.
    3. or Both – continually deceive the opponent and then unable to protect themselves from your Attack.

  • Initiate, Gain Striking Superiority – Finish The Fight

    FORMULA: Range – Timing – Pattern Recognition

    We have all heard the truth that Offense is the best Defense. This is true and effective in Sports, Business, and in any Competition.

    Offense is the Best Defense, and you must Attack to Defend.

    Then why do Martial Arts teach that defenses are effective against attacks? The truth is that Defenses are not effective. If you are “defending” then you are static, reacting and behind in timing instead of taking effective action .

    The Authentic Pekiti-Tirsia System will teach you how to take Offensive Action and effectively Strike, Move, and Attack instead of reacting and defending. The Formula for effective application of all Martial Arts and Combat Methods is known:

    There are No Blocks, No Stances and no Defense. You will Strike, Move, and Attack.

    To successfully apply any technique effectively it must be executed with the correct:

    • Range – Move and Strike the opponent while you are Safe from opponents strikes
    • Timing – Strike Ahead of Time of your opponent’s strikes, not equal or behind time.
    • Pattern Recognition – you recognize the opponents strike as it initiates and then attack the attack with multiple effective strikes
    Show more +
  • Fight the SAFE Fight.

    There is One effective Strategy for Combat and Personal Protection – Fight the SAFE Fight.

    Offense and Counter-Offense is simultaneous (there is no defense) and Striking and Movement are always equal. There is no training to be shot or stabbed and you should NEVER train to be hit, trade strikes, or mutually strike opponents in training.

    The Authentic PTK System provides the knowledge, training methods, and effective outcomes when you join/begin/commit to the Mastery Process.

    Pekiti-Tirsia provides you the Sword

    Why The Sword – Weaponry First Method….Advantages

  • The Training and Mastery Process is effective and timeless

    Forms – WHAT – Forms teach the proper Body Mechanics to Strike and Move individually, with or without weapons.

    Drills – HOW – Drills are fixed sequences of combat proven effective exchanges of striking, footwork and attacks between training partners that teach how to gain the correct Distance and Timing of the strikes to

    1. Strike Ahead of Time and
    2. Strike Ahead of Time from a Position of Advantage.

    Application – WHY – You will prove and validate your knowledge of the system and your skillset with Sparring and Combat Scenario training where you prove your personal effective skills applying tactics and techniques with correct range and timing. Realistic but Safe combat application where you finish training to a recognized level of proficiency and are Confident and Ready to execute your skills.

  • What makes the Pekiti-Tirsia system work, How it works, and Why it is effective.

    Human Body Mechanics, Mathematical Geometry, Maneuver Warfare Doctrine

    WHAT

    Correct Body Mechanics for Footwork Movement and Maneuver with Speed and Agility also give you an aerobic workout every time you train for Lifelong Health. PTK-SMF contains 12 methods of Striking Mechanics – every manipulation and method of striking possible with Weaponry and Empty-Hands.

    HOW

    Geometry and Judgement Skills of Distance, Timing, and Pattern Recognition – the skills that must be developed and applied for any martial art technique to be effective. Only the Sword & Impact Weapon allows you to see the actual Lines of Direction of your Movement and Striking. Geometry measures Distance to control the Range, measures the Timing of Strikes to stay Ahead of Time and on the Attack, and Recognize the Pattern of fast and powerful Strikes to avoid and attack effectively with your own strikes.

    WHY

    Maneuver Warfare Doctrine –Attack with the Advantages of Speed and Timing or from a Superior Position. Offensive Maneuver and control of the Timing, Striking Position, or both.

There is One effective Strategy for Combat and Personal Protection

Fight The Safe Fight

  • Offense and Counter
    • Offense is simultaneous
      • There is NO effective defense
  • Striking and Movement are always equal.
    • There is no training to be shot or stabbed
  • You should NEVER train to be hit, trade strikes, or mutually strike opponents.
  • Fight The Safe Fight

    No Training to be shot or stabbed

    There is no Reactionary Gap.

    If you know how to judge the Distance and Timing and can recognize the opponents Pattern of Movement and Striking – you will no longer “react” and instead Attack the Attack ahead of time, controlling the distance and striking with precision and accuracy.

    THERE IS Only the BRIDGE

    The Distance between you and the threat is not the “Reactionary Gap” where you “Defend and Counter” in your “Stance” as the opponent moves and strikes at you. This distance is the BRIDGE – the physical ground that you Control, Cross, and Advance behind your Fire/Strikes as you Close-with, Fix and Quarter, and Destroy or Finish attack and destroy the threat.

    • Action beats Reaction and Offense is the Best Defense.
    • There is No Defense – You must successfully Attack to Defend.
