The foundation of our training is footwork and striking mechanics. The Doce Methodos then break down and analyze 12 aspects of blade fighting. Each method is isolated and then integrated in a dynamic blend of movement expressed in technical sparring. Technical Sparring is PTK's ultimate training method for validating the art's expression of distance, timing and footwork.
The CQC system we teach is the same course designed by Tuhon Tim Waid that is being actively used today by elite Filipino Force Recon Marine and Scout Ranger units in places like Mindanao. The PTK CQC System consists of Close Quarters Bolo, Knife, Empty Hands, Bayonet as well as Weapon Retention and Disarming.
