    i have attended a seminar conducted by tuhon leo gaje and tim waid the experience was definitely an eye opener, it allowed me to see the true filipino fighting arts at its indigenous level, the proven and tested system of ptk where every situation is addressed. the transition from impact weapon utilization ,its applications into the blade and open hand attacks. the counter attacks in coordination with the dynamic mobility makes it hard to be hit. these are just a few of the training that i experienced under tuhon and mr tim waid.

    count me in ,reallyexcited to hear his coming to florida!!!!

    Greetings! Great to see you posting! We are really excited to have you and those from your school join us in welcoming Grand Tuhon to Florida.

    Both Rommel Tortal and Tim Waid will be occupied that weekend, but there is the slight chance of our being joined by another very special guest. No promises as it is too early to tell but I am excited about it!

    Keep checking back for updates and looking forward to seeing you, artvilla and others in June.

    Best regards,

    Sounds good Dino!!!
    We are really excited about the seminar, and I am sure it will be a success!
    I for one have "spruced up" my training these days so as to be ready for the seminar!!!
    Seems like we are going to have a GREAT summer!
    Also, Dino, do you hold classes/training on the weekends in Tampa?
    If so, what days, and do you accept "visiting students"?

    Thanks again!!

    ilang tulog na lang , darating na si tuhon.... kailangan magpalakas at maghanda para sa pagkakataong maranasan and bagsik ng pikiti, sakit buto, sakit katawan pero ang lahat ng ito ay may katutunan ang maging mabagsik na mandirigma,walang inuurungan ang laban ay patas sabi ni tuhon, bilog ang rattan at lapad ang kalis ang iyong pagamit nito ang siyang magsasabi kung sino ang magwawagi.

    translation: not word for word....

    in just a few weeks tuhon will be here, despite the anticipated intensity of training which i know will result in sore bones and muscle, i look forward to the opportunity to experience the training from a master, pikiti is mabagsik meaning totally fierce. in combat they do not retreat, they simply fight in order to preserve life dignity and honor and he said this the last time i met him, the stick is round the blade is flat, prove it in the battlefield.

    salamat for the interest ,

    Thank you very much for the translation!
    I too have heard that his training is very intense and very demanding, which makes me all the more enthusiastic about the seminar!!!
    I am truly looking forward to the seminar, and to meeting and training with fellow Pekiti Tirsia afficonados.
    It's going to be an awesome experience! I feel honored and priveleged to have the opportunity to train, if at least for 2 days, under the Grand Master of the art which I so enjoy.

    Less than a month now!!!!!

    Hoping everyone is doing well. With a week to go until our seminar with GT Gaje, I just wanted to thank everyone that I have personally spoken with or written to for the TREMENDOUS support and excitement for our event. What started out as a small, local endeavour has grown to encompass most of the state of Florida, with participants from Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota, Miami, Coral Springs, Titusville, etc. Tuhon Gaje is very eager to arrive and bring to Florida the Combat Survival Technology presently in use today with the Marine Recon and Special Action Forces in his homeland.

    Thank you again to everyone who helped to make this weekend possible and we hope to make it not only a memorable one for this year, but an annual event in the years to come!

    With great appreciation,

    Dino Martinez

    We had great time with Tuhon... first day (morning) was so hot at 92°F without any clouds on sight. We were very fortunate that Victor Reviera who helped us use the Boys & Girls Club in Delray Beach. the second day was another intense training... the food, we don't forget that. the people who participated the event are all professionals... we thank you for your support and made it successful.

    We'll hope that Tuhon will be back soon. Again, we thank you for your support.
