Filipino Indigenous Fighting Arts Retreat

This unique Filipino fighting art training will be conducted by:

Tuhon Rommel Tortal – Pekiti Tirsia Kali & Master Ron Kosakowski – Kuntao

July, 19, 20 & 21, 2013


849 Warwick TPKE

Hewitt, New Jersey 07421

This never seen before historical event is going to be approximately 8 hours a day of intense Kuntao (4hours) and Pekiti Tirsia Kali training (4hours).

There will be breaks for lunch, water and rest in between training.

Ron Kosakowski – Kuntao, 1st half

Friday - The use of Kuntao hand movements and foot work along with monitoring your opponent, which will place you in position before your opponent can get to you, will be taught in detail. That is a science within itself. You will learn how to use what your opponent does against him. This is the foundation of Kuntao that will make the rest of the style easier to learn. The training methods for the traditional balance and conditioning will also be worked on and explained.

Saturday 4 hours - A lot of coverage on the ground fighting aspects of Kuntao will be shown. These fighting methods are unique to Kuntao. This is not the mainstream wrestling methods you see now a days. These ground fighting methods were created to defend against worst case scenario situations. These tactics were created to defend multi-man attack and weapon defense situations...things you do not want end up against in a wrestling situation. This area of Kuntao training is a very good core workout and is not seen in other martial art styles.

Sunday 4 hours - The most dangerous situation you can be up against is a knife wielding individual who wants to kill you. Our Kuntao adage is, "get cut but be skilled enough not to get killed." Here you will really see how the Kuntao monitoring system really works.  You will learn functional foot work coordinated with rhythmic hand movements to defend against this dangerous situation. Many static knife scenarios, as in hostage situations or getting robbed or threatened will be shown as well.
