VIDEO: One of the coolest aspects of training Pekiti-Tirsia Kali (even during solo training) is the visualization factor it can offer. This is an important component to learning and understanding the combat flow of weaponry.
VIDEO: Can you identify threat indicators? Can you identify the initiation? Can you identify the flow of weaponry? Can you bridge the gap and strike without a mutual destruction? Do you have evasive footwork maneuvering? Can you adapt? How much power can you generate? Can you validate your skill?
VIDEO: What else does PTK-SMF empty-hands entail? How much in-close fighting exists? Well, Pekiti-Tirsia essentially means “close-quarters”. Thus, there’s an effective range of applications for extreme close-quarter engagements.
VIDEO: Run if you can. Yup. 100%... BUT, that’s only efficacious if you have the ability, timing, opportunity and environment. Otherwise, you must deal with the threat that’s closing in or already directly in front of you.
