The session will focus on the triangle-based system of Pekiti Tirsia Kali (more info at http://ptkbrooklyn.com). We will investigate how the triangle system is incorporated in footwork, angles of attacks, and progress into ranging. The class will also address basic principles of body mechanics for combat form the perspective of a real world martial art.

Instructor Bio: Francis Estrada is a visual artist who works as a Museum Educator at MoMA, a freelance educator of Filipino art and culture, and a Filipino martial arts (Pekiti Tirsia Kali) instructor. He is ranked as a Guro at the Pekiti Tirsia Kalie Elite group based out of Brooklyn, NY and studies directly under Tuhon Rommel Tortal.

Needs: It would be ideal if people bring in kali sticks (rattan, approx 28″). I can bring a few in case people don’t have them. Let me know if you need anything else!
