    Hello,
    I am in the process of launching a PTK training group in Central Pennsylvania. More specifically, we have been meeting in the Camp Hill area, but this may change when a more suitable location is found. It has been my belief since I began training that this area needs Pekiti. Not only are there relatively few options for the aspiring FMA practitioner, but the location itself is highly conducive to this type of training. It's close proximity to mountains and forests offers numerous opportunities for outdoor/environmental training, which I have come to believe is an important component of PTK. This group will be under the guidance of Agalon Rob Walker and we will be traveling to West Chester from time to time to train with him. The training in Harrisburg is free of charge, however, I am attempting to be somewhat cautious about who is trained. We're looking for people who have a sincere interest in PTK and are serious about protecting themselves and their families. If you're interested, toss me an email.

    I'm a couple of hours south of you. Its good to see more FMA type things in the area. Good luck. Maybe I'll get a chance to come through your way.

    Blindside, that would be great as we've been training pretty close to I-83, which makes it an easy commute from York. We already have a guy coming from down that way. Killbot, anytime you're in the area, just let me know. Thanks guys.

    Hi Phil H,

    My name is Dan and I have been practicing FMA for some time in Harrisburg with a small group of guys. We train in my backyard which is about an acre closed in by huge trees with a two car garage that has a small training center upstairs inside with mats punching bag ect. Outside could train 20 plus inside 10 people, we also dabble in Point fighting, Thai kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but the primary art practiced is FMA. Please contact me so we can talk carenordan@comcast.net

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Dan,
    Thanks for reaching out! This was exactly the sort of thing I was hoping for with this post. I know there is a ton of interest in central PA and I suspected that there were scattered groups actually training, like your own. What type of FMA are you guys currently practicing? I'll try to sit down tonight after work and email you so we can maybe set something up, especially if you guys are at all interested in PTK. Thanks again. -Phil

    JRest75, thanks for your interest, I sent you a PM. Also, to any martial arts schools in the Harrisburg (or more specifically the west shore) area, we're exploring the option of renting some training space. We'd be trying to have sessions only about once a week but would need some flexibility with the block of time. Let me know if you're interested. -Phil

    Dan,
    I apologize for not seeing this sooner. I've moved out of the area and am currently working on establishing a group in West Virginia. Best of luck with your endeavors.
