Aaron Tilton is a certified journalist and has been a member of Berlin Kali School since 2011. In Pekiti-Tirsia Kali, he has achieved the rank of Agalon 5th Hagdan. He first came into contact with Pekiti-Tirsia Kali in Tübingen in 2008. He has been active in combat sports and martial arts since his youth, beginning with traditional taekwondo and moving on to shotokan karate, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, wrestling, capoeria, and sambo. He has found a balanced, all-encompassing system in Pekiti-Tirsia Kali that makes him feel comfortable and at ease.
Christopher Marx studies psychology. He began his career in combat sports with Tai Chi and switched to Wushu as well as MMA. From there, he found his path to Kali. What fascinates him about Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is its high effectiveness as well as its diverse applications within the context of self-defense.
She began learning the ins and outs of Tai Chi and Qigong in 2008. Since then, training in these disciplines has given her energy and strengthened her physical prowess. It creates a healthy balance that allows her to master the demands of everyday life. Her love of Tai Chi has become her inspiration and guided her in the most diverse ways.
Michel trained intensively in shokotan karate in his youth. During his studies, he was able to gain insight into kickboxing and Thai boxing. When a friend told him that Pekiti-Tirsia Kali let students work with "open hands," he wanted to learn more about the Philippine system. In 2014, he began to train in Pekiti-Tirsia Kali in Stuttgart.
Felix studies history with a focus on military history. What fascinates him the most about Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is its simple approach to complex issues. The flow in Kali gives him the freedom he has been searching for in martial arts. He trained in the Philippines for many months under Gran Tuhon Leo T. Gaje Jr. and became certified to teach the basics of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali using the Tri-V formula.
