Pekiti Tirsia Kali announcement
The following is an official statement from the leadership of Pekiti Tirsia Kali:
Please let it be known that Timothy (Tim) Waid is no longer recognized as a representative or legitimate instructor of Pekiti Tirsia Kali. He is no longer authorized to teach under the banner of Pekiti Tirsia Kali and must remove all references of himself as a part of Pekiti Tirsia Kali. Tim Waid is no longer authorized to use any version of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali name and logo or that of Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje, Jr. in any way.
Any future certifications and promotions by Tim Waid of students, instructors, groups, and schools past the date of this announcement are not valid. These future certifications and promotions will not be recognized by Grand Tuhon or the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community.
Despite being given several warnings and second chances by Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje, Jr., Tim Waid has continued the destructive behavior below:
Tim Waid has continuously been discourteous and disrespectful to Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje, Jr. as well as other Tuhons and instructors of Pekiti Tirsia Kali. He has repeatedly manipulated the trust of members of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community. His actions have undermined efforts made by others to unite the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community. This includes purposely dividing the loyalties of students in the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community for his personal gain.
Tim Waid has hindered the positive growth and collaborative efforts of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community by making personal attacks on other officially recognized instructors. He has misrepresented his authority by falsely claiming that he is the only source for authentic Pekiti Tirsia Kali. Furthermore, Tim Waid has created bad relations with other martial arts styles and organizations by directly insulting members of those communities while representing his views as those of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community.
This action of terminating the relationship of Tim Waid and Pekiti Tirsia Kali is an effort to protect the trust and camaraderie of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community, maintain the positive values of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali community, and prevent bad relations with the entire martial arts community. We hope that this action will keep the future of Pekiti Tirsia Kali growing in a positive direction.

This seems pretty radical and sudden. Who's the new director of PTGO USA?
Can you identify yourself at all?Originally Posted by Canuckyokushin

They posted the signed letter over on MAP. It looks like GT Gaje and Tuhon Mel voted him off the island. They don't refer to him as Tuhon at all.Originally Posted by Canuckyokushin

You gotta love Martial Arts politics! Especially in the FMA. So basically he wasn't doing what they wanted him to do, so they kicked him out?
I guess he will just start his own brand and add more lines to the many lines of FMA. Has anyone heard any response from Tim Waid?

I don't see any response from Mr. Waid about anything. But apparently this is the new webite for PTK:
The website is pretty slim pickings, though. But Tim Waid is listed nowhere on it, which is funny because he is one of the biggest names out there for PTK. But in the school section there are some schools like the one in Atlanta, that is under Tim Waid.

This announcement seems a little ridiculous and politics ridden, I'm not affiliated with ptk but I've seen several Facebook posts supporting tuhon wade. I'm curious of there is any demonstratable evidence in support of these accusations. Either way what's done is done and another FMA is further divided.

Hasn't he just been on FMA Talk live? I'm going to make a point of listening to the episode now.
