In The Midst Of Adversity

The opening of the year 2009 welcomes us with new challenges.

Possible threats linger in every corner, dark or light. The need for haste and vigilance is upon us. In the midst of the global crisis, people will be more aggressive. More people will be killed, more situations will be taken advantaged of, and more families will be torn apart due to this catastrophy. No one will be spared, not the old, not the women, not the children. The vultures will come down from its perch, the chameleon will shed its true colors.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Too late to worry about yesterday, too soon to worry about tomorrow, no better time to act than now. As protectors of the weak and guardians of the peace, we will act in defiance of the current trends. We will state our own terms and dictate the course of action. Throughout history, it is not these over zealous politicians or scholarly statesmen that dictate the pace of the world, but it is the man with the weapon. If steel has gone through fire and brimstone to perform in its utmost ability, shouldn't its wielder do the same?

Pekiti-Tirsia Kali evolves through time and adapts itself to its environment while still staying true to its core discipline and underlying principles.

Expect more hard training, blood, sweat and tears all together.

This is our mission. This is our destiny.
