    Have you trained with anybody from there....I just recently joined a training group out of Los Angeles.....I have trained with other FMA's and Pekiti Tirsia seems to be a good blade style and they seem to know what they are talking about....I even trained with Grand Tuhon Gaje..he seemed like a well informed instructor.

    Like I said I have trained with others and everyone has their own teaching style that is why I have trained with different people so I can pick what I like and use if for myself.

    However if you had a bad experience with someone from PTGO then that could explain your comments. I know alot of FMA instructors always have bad things to say about each other's style....I just ignore the politics and just train

    psychochipps, I have a little experience with Pekiti-Tersia from some people who would always turn up for Bowies on the Beach in VA when we still had it. Seemed interested if you wanted to study something. Like many of the blade arts I am not sure how well it would mesh with over all combative skill sets like carrying a knife to back up a pistol.

    Oh, I don't doubt that they have themselves some good skills to teach, I just don't like quotes like those I mentioned above. Call me "old skool" but it irks me to see people who are otherwise excellent instructors making comments like the two I mentioned above.

    It panders to everything wrong in the martial arts world, IMO.

    Dang! And I was looking forward to getting dumped flat on my side with my assailant in a side mount!

    Take all the fun out of it why don't you, George!

    To tell you the truth I never noticed those comments before.....its called marketing and some go over board I guess.....but there are people that believe it.

    Reminds me of my Goju-Ryu instructor's quote. "You're here to learn Goju-Ryu Karate. If you just want to learn how to fight, there is a rather rough bar two blocks down on the left."
