    The Karambit is Banned in Pekiti Tirsia

    The following message has gone out to Pekiti Tirsia groups all over the world.

    Special Announcement:

    I don't want any PTK Instructors will teach Karambit . Karmambit is not filipino . there is no filipino culture . No filipino must adopt non -filipino more with PTK. I don't want that any one learning Karambit taught by PTK Instructor and this student will cause a crime using Karambit and when he is caught by the Police comitting robbery or murder , he is PTK student.

    It is my absolute order no PTK Instructor will teach karambit , If one insist I will kick him out from the PTK list of instructors . No exception. Remember that guys I mean it. Karambit in Malaysia is 6 year imprisonment not baiil bonds. By order Grandtuhon Leo Gaje.
    Why do I think this has more to do with Doug Marcaida, a former PTK instructor who left PTK and is now known all over the world and the Youtubewebs as the Karambit guy...than it has to do with Gaje worrying about his students committing crimes? Are Marcaida's students out there committing robbery and murder with karambits blazing? Is this Gaje's way of making sure none of his instructors associate with Marcaida?

    GT Gaje does seem to have his moments.

    I've heard mixed stories about the Kerambit's place in Filipino culture, do you know if it is actually a traditional weapon of the PI or is it a more modern adoption?

    The blade existed in the Filipines under another name, I forget which off the top of my head, but was never of the same status as the karambit was in other systems like Silat.

    I'd heard of the filipino version as the "lihok" - and it was described to me as a fish-gutting knife, often with a string loop at the end of the hilt rather than the wood or metal one of a karambit.

    That's it. The design of the karambit is an intentional one. Western deer skinning knives can look similar.

    The closest my wife is aware of is a Palot (Pangasinan, she can't recall the Tagalog) and they use it for rice harvesting

    If any PTK members here on Bullshido are now finding themselves with karambit they have to off-load...contact me. I'm starting up a home for orphan karambit.

    You aren't getting mine. That said kerambit has always been a minor subset of the knife curriculum. I use it to illustrate hooking slashes and to train officers who have it for an offside carry. I do find this an odd declaration, Tuhon Rommel teaches kerambit/lugod regularly.

    I personally think that the kerambit is on a par with the nunchaku , in that it seems to be able do more damage to the user than the intended "object of it's intention".

    I am also hearing that, like the nunchaku in the 60's & 70's it is getting too much unwanted publicity and is being subsequently outlawed in several jurisdictions.
