STRATEGY – TACTICS – TECHNIQUES
The foundation strategy of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is:
1. Protection from all attacks.
2. Destruction of opponent(s) weapons.
3. Domination of any combat or self-defense situation.
Combat Blade Fighting tactics are executed according to this strategy. Tactics and training must provide skills for protection and evasion against opponents’ strikes, and the ability never to be hit. The Live Blade provides instant realization of this principle and validation of all tactics and techniques. Protection from strikes and attacks are accomplished by footwork mobility and maneuver, counter-offensive strikes, and by striking the opponent first. Opponent weapons are destroyed by direct strikes to the weapon hand or incapacitation by striking vital areas off-time of opponent’s strikes. Domination of close-quarters combat is executed by attacking, quartering, controlling, and neutralizing the threat regardless of terrain, environment, or multiple adversaries.
