The PTTA is putting together…

The ONE Seminar That Puts You on a Fast Track to Sharpen Your Skills and OFFICIALLY Progress in Pekiti Tirsia

In the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Hello, PTTA Member.

You may or may not know about this, but every year, we host a LOT of events. A lot of seminars.

And out of all of those seminars, four of them are the biggest ones worth going to. The PTTA Regional Conferences.

There’s the upcoming Conference in Siquijor Island, which you also hear about next.

And there are also a couple that have already been done: the PTTA Europe Conference and the PTTA South America Conference.

This letter is about the 5th PTTA USA Conference. And to read through all the opportunities it represents, it almost sounds like a magic pill!

In fact, our writer couldn’t even believe his eyes at how much you could be getting out of attending the Conference!

It should give you an idea of how much we put into the conference that we could confidently make you the promise that you would get good, get promoted, AND become a better leader more quickly.

Now, we don’t like to brag… it’s very unprofessional and it can be a lot of peacocking.

But we really, truly wanted to turn the 5th PTTA USA Conference into something worth your time as a serious student of Pekiti Tirsia.

And with what Tuhon Jared wanted to do with this Conference, we really had to make it as absurdly valuable as possible for every attendee.

So here are some of the details to the 5th PTTA USA Conference.

The 5th PTTA USA Conference Is Your Chance to Officially Promote in the PTTA’s System!


We do list it as a talking point on Pekiti University that you’ll get the chance to get graded on your skills and knowledge in Pekiti Tirsia.

Now, while that’s something you can do with your chosen Gabay no matter where you are, this seminar is a chance to make it OFFICIAL and GET PROMOTED in the Pekiti Tirsia system.

While it isn’t the PERFECT system, and outside of that, we DO have to rely on more local instructors with their own schools to promote students like you, we wanted to kill as many birds as possible with one stone.

And we decided that, if you, as a martial arts practitioner, were going to pay good money for martial arts training anyway, why not make it worth your while to go to a seminar and get as much as you possibly can out of it, INCLUDING official ranking?

Because of that, we designed all PTTA-exclusive seminars (much like this one) to give you more than just a few days of training with nothing else to show for it.

We designed them to give you opportunities.

With our seminars giving you the chance to officially progress in the Pekiti Tirsia fighting system, you’ll become a LOT closer to being able to TEACH our system.

And that means that you’ll be able to show your skills to your students AND use them if you ever have to protect yourself and the people around you!

You’ll Be Training With Three Excellent Teachers in the PTTA!

Let’s start with the Chairman himself, Tuhon Jared Wihongi.

With 14 years of combined law enforcement and security experience (including SWAT), and 9 years as the go-to combatives instructor for both law enforcement AND the United States Army, Tuhon Jared’s record already shows that he’s a force to be reckoned with.

And when the Army contracts him to teach not just any random unit, but a Special Force group, you know that Tuhon Jared has to teach stuff that ACTUALLY works, or he wouldn’t have anything close to the level of staying power that he currently enjoys!

In fact, besides those credentials, Tuhon even has a letter of recommendation from GSG-9!

That’s already a good sign that your training is in good hands, but we ALSO have Mandala Jason Jones!

Now, Mandala Jason’s been in the martial arts world for AT LEAST 29 years as of the time that we put this letter together. But it’s not just that time, it’s also what system he studied.

Besides Kali, which is a must for a PTTA member, Mandala Jason had his start in Kenpo from Ed Parker’s lineage!

That image should give an idea of just how viciously effective good Kenpo can be. And Mandala Jason holds a 5th degree black belt in it, which took him 25 YEARS.

And after Mandala Jason, we ALSO have Mandala Lamont Glass!

Now, Mandala Lamont has an interesting background as a martial artist.

Besides his skills in Pekiti Tirsia, Mandala Lamont also does Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA)!

While HEMA by itself is more a study in history than it is a study in self defense, the common ground that HEMA has with Filipino martial arts lends itself quite well to Mandala Lamont’s training!

With three instructors for the PTTA, INCLUDING the founder, you would be able to skyrocket your progress in Pekiti Tirsia and count on your skills to carry you in case of, say, a random mugging from the local thug in the neighborhood!

But the other thing that REALLY adds massive value to these conferences is the NETWORK.

You’ll Get to Connect and Even TRAIN WITH Other PTTA Members! 

With other PTTA members like you attending the conference, you’d be able to come together and figure out how you can keep your training going at a higher level for the ones who live in your area!

We understand the one MAJOR problem of seminars: they’re GREAT for that rush of exposure to the points of a fighting system… but to keep it going, you need more consistent training. Otherwise, it just becomes information that gathers dust in the back of your mind.

It’s honestly something we’d hate to have happen consistently, because then that really drives the value of a seminar down!

Because that’s something we’ve been trying to address, we wanted to, again, kill multiple birds with one stone. This Conference was our answer.

In this Conference, if you connect with members who also came from YOUR local area, there is nothing stopping you from forming a Study Group to take your skills and training to the next level with other PTTA members!

And besides that, because the Conference is ALSO a place where Study Group leaders and anyone with instructor status can come and get the skills they need to keep a study group or school running like a well-oiled machine!

It leads back to what Tuhon Jared wanted to do with this Conference: he wanted to make sure that you, whether you’re an instructor, study group leader, or not, would get so much out of this that it would be worth your while to attend.

Because of all this, it ALSO means that, NOT ONLY do you get to bounce ideas on martial arts off of other PTTA members, but you ALSO get to bounce ideas off of running a study group or teaching martial arts!

With other PTTA members who you can bounce ideas off of, whether you interact with them ONLY at the seminar or (preferably) in your local training group, you stand a MUCH better chance at retaining the lessons you learn at the Conference.

And that gets you closer to becoming a more skilled, more confident you!

Let’s summarize EXACTLY what you’ll be getting out of the 5th PTTA USA Conference:

  • You’ll be getting a chance to OFFICIALLY promote in the Pekiti Tirsia system courtesy of the PTTA family, getting you closer to being able to TEACH the system and RAPIDLY boost your own skills for those times where you need to teach them… or use them!
  • You’ll get connected with other PTTA members, some of whom will DEFINITELY be at an ADVANCED level with our system, so you can train with the best and know that you’ll be able to protect yourself and your family for those moments where things go wrong!
  • And even if you’re NOT teaching the system, you can become a Study Group leader, FORM A COMMUNITY of Pekiti Tirsia enthusiasts that you can train with so that you don’t need to wait on someone else to do it for you while you take your skills to the next level!

Now, in the PTTA, we don’t like to do certain things with our martial arts system. We:

  • Don’t like to issue out testing fees JUST FOR THE CHANCE to promote.
  • Don’t like to charge extra money to become one of our affiliated instructors.
  • ALSO don’t like to turn these seminars into mere money-grubbing tactics without ACTUALLY providing value.

It’s simply because enough of our members have felt ripped off that way before. And some of them came here SPECIFICALLY to escape what they would call money traps. And, in fact, we want to keep the costs as low as possible, too.

That’s why, if you want to join us in Salt Lake City, instead of paying something around the mark of, say, 400 USD for the full 3 days…


So that would be 285 USD to train with people like Tuhon Jared Wihongi himself AND to get EVERYTHING ELSE we talked about so far, including but not limited to the network, the chance to officially promote, and the chance to take your skills to the next level (or levels).

But we do have to give a fair warning to you: the seminar takes place on the 23rd of August, which REALLY isn’t too far off from now. As a result, we’re not going to be able to keep our doors open for you for as long as we would like.

So if you’ve read all of the above and decided you would like to meet us in Salt Lake City, then click the link below to register!


Best regards,

The Pekiti Tirsia Tactical Association
