Fluid Fighting Systems is a training group based in Southern California that’s dedicated to giving students the concepts and training needed to defend themselves in real-world scenarios.

We specialize in the Filipino combat art of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali (PTK), which involves the use of and defense against blunt, bladed, and bareknuckled weapons. PTK is a versatile system that lets the user adapt to a wide range of scenarios — everything from a robbery by a knife-wielding thug to a barroom brawl involving multiple aggressors. And thanks to its extensive use of triangle footwork and flow drills, PTK is great for overall fitness and provides muscular conditioning and joint mobility.

During our classes and workshops we often cover the following:

  • Footwork
  • Common angles of attack
  • Street effective defenses
  • Reality-based knife/club drills
  • Empty-hand strikes

We also teach American kickboxing, women’s self-defense, and street defense for children and all adults — all of which can be customized for you, your loved ones, or your organization.
