Filipino Martial Arts
Edged and Impact WeaponsWe train for both the application and defense of edged and impact weapons. Our philosophy is if you can protect yourself against a knife you can also survive and empty hands attack. The reverse is not true.
Proactive MindsetRather than thinking in terms of defense, we prefer to think of offense and counter-offense. This simply means we want to be proactive in our approach to keep our attackers off-balance, and adjusting to us.
Unarmed SkillsOur system addresses striking, takedowns, and groundfighting. These skills are always trained to be effective and assume although you may not be armed, your attacker probably will be.
Relevent TodayThe nature of warfare and violent crime involves weaponry. This will never change. Though there is a long history and tradition in the Filipino Martial Arts, the skills are modern and applicable today.

Pekiti Tirsia Kali
Pekiti Tirsia Kali is our system of Filipino Martial Arts, which rose from a history of guerrilla fighting and the survival of not just individuals, but a culture.
Dumog Pangamut, known as Dumpag for short, is a subsystem of Pekiti Tirsia Kali. Dumpag is a combination of the empty hands strikes and techniques consistent with the weapon motions and tactics of Kali as well as takedowns, locks, breaks and what Grand Tuhon Gaje calls muscle, tendon destruction. This class is a part of the Filipino Martial Arts Program.
