PTK-SMF is Tuhon Tim Waid's official trademarked brand. "SMF" stands for Saevio Militaris Faber, which is Latin for "To RAGE violently in a precise MILITARY method, with MASTER skill." It is a clear indicator of what our training philosophy is like and how it sets us apart from other Pekiti-Tirisia Kali organizations. Our standards is the proficiency and skill with the live blade with dynamic authority and lethal precision, regardless of what weapon is being used.
The Doce Methodos or the 12 Methods of Pasugat (contact) is the primary foundation of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali System, which defines the full spectrum of striking systems and applications based on the single long blade and also serves as the guide for all other weapon categories. In the more advanced levels, the principles of Seguidas (continuous center line attacks) and Pasunod (contradas, recontras, recontradas) are also learned and applied.
