    Is there a special reason in wearing camo, berets, and all black outfits?

    It's because Pekiti is military. Correction, it's the style the Philippine military uses.

    "Pekiti-Tirsia is currently the only Kali system recognized by the Philippine government used to train Force-Recon Marine Battalions of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Special Action Force (SAF) contingent of the Philippine National Police.[2][8]"

    That's why they like cammo.:evil5:

    Also, because Leo Gaje thinks they look cool.

    But really more of the first thing.

    Yeah, it is good. It just not here where I am at in Toledo. I guess that I will have to train the best i can and get as much from the tube as I can.

    If you are willing to drive for seminars, there is a group in Indianapolis that sometimes hosts Tuhon Gaje and Tim Waid to teach Pekiti Tirsia. You can find contact info for them here http://www.pt-go.com/training_instructors.asp. At one point, there was a Detroit Pekiti group, but I don't know if they're still active.

    If you are interested in trying other styles I would recommend doing seminars around the area to meet practitioners and try out different styles. A place to start would be the Brown Institute of Martial Arts in Dayton Ohio. Jeff Brown brings in Dan Inosanto and Marc Denny (of the dog brothers) to his academy from time to time for weekend seminars.

    From my point of view Pekiti is far more combat oriented that Modern Arnis. MA is more of an attributes developing and basic self defense system. It's mostly what are your objectives as to which system you want to train in.

    PS - One strong similarity is the founders' dislike for the other.

    Yes that I can definitely agree on. (the dislike) As for one being more combat oriented than the other well..... they both have good points and bad points.
