Blackbird Training Group offers instruction in two main traditions of weapon fighting arts.
The Fighting Art of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali
A melting pot of the Eastern and Western fighting systems, the martial arts of the Philippine Islands have retained a dynamic and realistic style of weapon combat to the present day. Taught through a series of partner drills and sparring, this fighting style is a challenge to the mind and body with its emphasis on athletic footwork and aggressive action. The focus of this system is on machete, knife, impact weapons and close quarter striking and grappling.
