Pekiti (to get in close) Tirsia (to quarter) means to close in with the purpose of quartering the opponent through multiple combinations of offensive attacks. In a law enforcement context, this can translate as neutralizing a threat and staying ahead of the OODA loop. Pekiti Tirsia Kali is a highly effective close-quarter fighting art indigenous to the Visayan region of the Philippines and has gained popularity as an effective defensive tactics system for law enforcement and military.

Pekiti Tirsia Tactics was the first sanctioned affiliate in Canada under the Pekiti Tirsia Tactical Association (PTTA). Pekiti Tirsia Tactics is dedicated to the tactical training of police, military, security and government enforcement units. 

Our pursuit of knowledge is guided by Tuhon Jared Wihongi, founder of the Pekiti Tirsia Tactical Association.​


TriCom (Triangle Combatives) is a brand under Survival Edge Tactical Systems that specializes in custom combatives programs catering to the unique mission or needs of each individual organization that we train. We have formed a strategic alliance with the Pekiti Tirsia Tactical Association and each course we teach can be done as an Operator-level course or as a Train-the-Trainer program.

Courses Offered:


Instructions on court-defensible techniques and tactics for dealing with subjects exhibiting various levels of resistance. The focus of this course is on Gross Motor techniques that have a higher probability of success when working within the stress of a real-world environment. The applications fall within the principles of the National Use of Force Framework.

Certification / Recertification Courses & Use of Force Programs are available for a wide range of enforcement groups.


Our Expandable Baton User and Instructor programs have been taught to Police, Military and Security units throughout Canada, the United States, Germany, England, Korea, Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines. We have developed policy, procedure and training programs for Law Enforcement and Security Agencies.

Basic certification / recertification courses and advanced expandable baton programs offered.


Statistically more lethal than firearm assaults at extreme close-quarters, edged weapons are a constant threat for law enforcement officers. Concept-based, hand-picked techniques and tactics that have the highest probability of success for the average officer who is often neither a martial artist nor has the opportunity to train on a regular basis.


Most Law Enforcement officers, military operators and security professionals carry at least one knife on their person when on duty. Also known as an EDC (Everyday Carry), the knife can perform a variety of utility functions especially as a last-ditch survival weapon or weapon retention tool. Unlike other weapons armed professionals and responsible citizens carry, most do not train in techniques and procedures for how to carry, deploy and use the knife as a last-ditch survival option. 


The Close-Quarter Force Integration Tactics (CQ-FIT) module focuses on pistol tactics in a close-quarter engagement. The course is designed to provide officers and operators the tools necessary for building proficient movement, space management and the tools necessary for dominating a close-quarter engagement from single to multiple threats.  


This course is designed to educate the participants on the dangers of ground fighting in a real-world combative environment. Participants are taught how to avoid and resist being drawn into a ground fight situation, and how to survive and escape the ground when the Officer finds themselves in that environment. Training is done in a progression from comfortable gym attire and progresses to performing all techniques in full equipment each participant commonly works in.
