-GUN RETENTION and Close Quarters Use

Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is a close-quarter, in-fighting combat system against multiple opponents based on the use of the Blade.

Transferability of techniques-- a characteristic of a system.

System - It all works together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.

 “(Leo Gaje’s) system is built around the knife, and has more street-realism than anything else.”  
February 1981, Inside Kung Fu

“When it comes to strategic knife defenses, Pekiti Tirsia Kali is one of the most progressive, useful, and sophisticated systems I have ever encountered”.
Dan Inosanto

"At close range it is not a shooting contest: it's a fight. Specifically it is a gunfight at knife-fighting range. This means it is not so much a shooting thing as a martial arts thing, and the martial arts is where you have to find the answer.

"There is no such thing as self defense; there is only offense and counter-offense"
--Tuhon Gaje

"Is Your martial art made to build character, improve health, instill discipline, or engage in a fair fight? That is not a martial art, it is a civilized sport and will not help you survive."

-- Jason Baird
