Pekiti Tirsia Kali
It’s roots can be traced back to the 9th century Sri Visayan Empire of South East Asia. One of the accepted historical versions has it that 12 Datus of Borneo brought kali to the Maharlikas (Southern Philipines).
Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje believes that the word Kali comes from the sword “kalis”, and from the Hindu God of destruction, Kali.
Kali is a weapon based training method and uses long and short rattan cane to replace the swords, knives, and spears in basic training. As skill increases so does the use of real weapons. There are 12 categories of weaponry in Kali from single and double sword to projectile weapons, healing arts, as well as empty hand techniques.
We are an Ottawa (Orleans) based Training group, founded in 2006, that Practices Pekiti Tirsia under the guidance of Tuhon Phil “Sled Dog” Gélinas of Montreal following the teachings of Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje Jr.
