At SAPTK (San Antonio Pekiti Tirsia Kali) you will learn EFFECTIVE self defense and PERSONAL PROTECTION through the study of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali - a Filipino martial art based on close quarters combat (CQC) with a knife or sword. So, Pekiti Tirsia Kali is a reality based martial are that will prepare you for real world situations requiring DYNAMIC, EFFECTIVE, and SIMPLE self defense that could save your life, your families', or your friends.

Unlike Kung Fu, Krav Maga, Karate, Taekwondo, or other martial arts, you will begin your martial arts training learning how to protect yourself with a weapon.  By starting with weapons, you will quickly develop improved hand and eye coordination, reflexes, and immediate protective skills.  The movements, mechanics, and skills learned with the knife and sword readily transfer to empty hand fighting.  This is realized on your first day of training.

Weapons are your tools for personal protection, self defense, and equalizing.  So, you will learn how to defend yourself in a fight if attacked by a bigger person, an attacker with a gun, or more than one person (multiple attackers) if the need arises.  You will also learn empty hands fighting and how to use improvised weapons.

Improve your self confidence, self discipline, and overall fitness while training in a fun, professional, and relaxed environment!
