"Pekiti-Tirsia is like a tree, the taller it goes the lower it bends. PTK warrior is given the freedom to exercise the best of his ability to know himslef better than any one within his own area of responsibility. There is no restrictions by imposing certain rules, but given the way to understand his or her responsiblity. PTK as individuals must only embrace the principles within the Philosophical values then his personal evaluation of himself will be determined by the results of his or her decision. To follow that Philosophy is believing in life not death and believing in success not in failures and good health not sickness is more than what a person expects."
