We, at the Filipino Combative Arts Academy, pride ourselves in being the only school in RI certified and authorized to teach the Authentic Filipino cultural combative fighting art of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali as taught by the Supreme Grand Master Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje Jr. Sanctioned by Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje Jr., here at FCAA we train to learn first, and then we train to fight. Performance against a real fighter, an athlete, is what matters. Increased performance is the only true test. You must be competent in stand-up, clinching, ground and weapons range of combat. We believe in training realistically and athletically, you will be learning effective techniques for each range and understand their relationship to one another. We drill, spar, adjust the drills and spar some more.

“You have to have the guts to stand on your own and face your demons. You do that through the environment created by resisting opponents. The more contact you make, the more likely you are to confront your own ego.”

We welcome any person who believes they are disciplined enough to embrace this type of training. We provide a safe and healthy environment where a person can develop their skills. Action is truly the high road to self-esteem. It’s about self-knowledge, self-preservation and self-perfection, that’s the beginning of the spiritual journey.
