The Pekiti-Tirsia MIL PTK-CQC System was developed by Tuhon Tim Waid of PTK-SMF for the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). It is the only system in existence today that fully integrates individual combat weaponry (Bolo, Knife, Bayonet), Empty-Hands Combat, and Tactical Firearms employment through the application of the same tactical techniques - the system of the Edged Weapon.
The Official System of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)
Today, PTK-CQC is trained and executed in combat and survival by military operators, law enforcement officers, and citizens across the free world. It's the official martial arts combat system of the Philippine Marine Corps and is the only Filipino Martial Arts system instructed to all Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). Pekiti-Tirsia Kali / PTK-CQC is also the official martial arts system of the elite Special Action Force (SAF) of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
Tested and proven through generations of combat, Pekiti-Tirsia Kali continues to be applied on the modern battlefield in the Global War on Terrorism by the elite Philippine Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance Battalion, Philippine Marine Corps, the elite Special Action Force of the Philippine National Police, as well as other Special Forces around the world.
The effectiveness of the edged/impact weapons of the Pekiti-Tirsia system makes it currently the only Kali system recognized by the Philippine government used to train the Philippine Marines and Special Forces. With its edged weapon methodology at its core, Pekit-Tirsia is the most practical, effective, and proven edged/impact weapon system in existence.
The Military PTK-CQC System is a combative skills program in Close Quarters Combat (CQC) tactical doctrine specifically formulated for military combat arms and special operation forces.
PTK Tactical training provides operators with complete tactics, techniques, and skills for the close-quarters use of all personal weapons and field expedient weapons found on the battlefield and other environments.
The foundation strategy of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is:
1. Protection from all attacks.
2. Nullification or Destruction of opponent(s) weapons and strikes.
3. Domination of the combat or self-defense encounter.
Combat Bladefighting tactics are executed according to this strategy. Tactics and training must provide skills for protection, evasion against opponents’ strikes, and the ability never to be hit. The live blade provides instant realization of this principle. 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.
The Military-CQC EDGED-IMPACT WEAPON SYSTEM is comprised of:
- Combat Bolo/CQB/Close-Quarters Bolo
- Combat Knife/CQK/Close-Quarters Knife
- Combat Empty-Hands/CQE/Close-Quarters Empty-Hands
